4. Strengthen your intuition.

Trust your intuition to choose positive people in your inner circle. Keep the energy vampires out whenever possible. Intuition will tell you when your energy has increased or decreased around someone. Pay attention to this information. Stick with those people who increase your energy. Learn to set clear boundaries with those who drain you.

5. Love yourself.

You are a precious being. Please remember that. Let your daily mantra be “I embrace my sensitivities. I can be vulnerable and strong at the same time.”

The empath journey is an adventure of a lifetime. As a sensitive person, there is much to be grateful for. You are able to experience exquisite passion and joy.

You can perceive the big picture on a deeper level. You are attuned to the beauty, poetry, and energy of life.

Your compassion gives you the capacity to help others. You are not callous or shut off or coldhearted. Your sensitivities allow you to be a caring, vulnerable, and aware being.

Notice how your own life and relationships improve from embracing your warrior spirit as an empath. Celebrate your progress every time you listen to your intuition or assert your empathic needs or are able to centre yourself in the midst of chaos.

Celebrate that you are no longer willing to deny your own feelings just to make other people comfortable. Celebrate your ability to love your beautiful self today without conflict or second-guessing. Be grateful for all your progress. Baby steps are golden. Don’t worry if you backslide at times. We all do.

In every circumstance, treat yourself with compassion.
