30 Empath Traits By Diane Kathrine:

1. Knowing.

Empaths just know stuff, without being told. It’s a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing. The more attuned they are the stronger this gift becomes.

2. Being in public places can be overwhelming.

Places like shopping malls, supermarkets, or stadiums where there are lots of people around can fill the empath with turbulently vexed emotions that are coming from others.

3. Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own.

This is a huge one for empaths. To some, they will feel emotions off those nearby, and with others, they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from a great distance.

4. Watching violence, cruelty or tragedy on the TV is unbearable.

The more attuned an empath becomes the worse it is and may make it so they eventually have to stop watching TV and reading newspapers altogether.

5. You know when someone is not being honest.

If a friend or a loved one is telling you lies you know it (although many empaths try not to focus on this because knowing a loved one is lying can be painful). Or if someone is saying one thing but feeling/thinking another, you know.

6. Picking up physical symptoms off another.

An empath will almost always develop the ailments off another (colds, eye infections, body aches, and pains) especially those they’re closest to, somewhat like sympathy pains.

7. Digestive disorders and lower back problems.

The solar plexus chakra is based in the center of the abdomen and it’s known as the seat of emotions. This is where empaths feel the incoming emotion of another, which can weaken the area and eventually lead to anything from stomach ulcers to IBS (too many other conditions to list here). Lower back problems can develop from being ungrounded (amongst other things) and one, who has no knowledge of them being an empath, will almost always be ungrounded.

8. Always looking out for the underdog.

Anyone who is suffering, in emotional pain, or being bullied draws an empath’s attention and compassion.

9. Others will want to offload their problems on you, even strangers.

An empath can become a dumping ground for everyone else’s issues and problems, which, if they’re not careful can end up as their own.

10. Constant fatigue.

Empaths often get drained of energy, either from energy vampires or just taking on too much from others, which even sleep will not cure. Many get diagnosed with ME.

11. Addictive personality.

Alcohol, drugs, sex, are to name but a few addictions that empaths turn to, to block out the emotions of others. It is a form of self-protection in order to hide from someone or something.

    This is very interesting and has helped me understand why people gravitate to me.
    I need to work on my chakra and be alone.
    It’s very exhausting being around others.

    This is eye opening. I’ve always been told I’m too sensitive. People say I’m too nice. I think ‘ how can someone be too nice?’ now I get that they are non empaths. How do you find out more about whether you are an empath? Who can you ask or do you just recognize signs and say ‘ I’m an empath’

    Have you ever sensed a close relative was sick and found out they were. Is this part of being an empath. I seem to be able to sense how the people closest to me are feeling even though we are in different states. I’ve always been this way.

      It has changed my life too. I have a better understanding or appreciation of “me”. I’ve always been told that I’m a good listener. Lot’s of activity, noise makes agitated and I can’t focus. I can’t watch favorite movies, like “Dances With Wolves” because of the fate of the animals. I am more comfortable with my cat(s) and my garden and I NEED my down time at the end of the day and weekend. I don’t need to do something over the weekend. I like to go out, but not all of the time.
