- Have I been labeled as overly sensitive?
- If a friend is distraught or in physical pain, do I start feeling it too?
- Am I drained in crowds, going out of my way to avoid them?
- Do I get anxious in packed elevators, airplanes, or subways?
- Am I hypersensitive to noise, scents, or excessive talking?
- When I see gruesome newscasts, does my energy plummet?
- Do I get burned out by groups, require lots of time alone to revive?
Discovering you're an empath can be a revelation. Putting a name to a very real intuitive experience legitimizes your perceptions. It also pinpoints where you're losing energy so you can regain it."
Orloff goes on to explore the importance of getting in touch with our intuition, our wise inner voice. Today it is all too easy for our intuitions to get drowned out by the busy, multi-tasking, workaholic world:
"Do everything you can to find intuition. Whether you're following your gut, scoping out someone's vibes, or grounding yourself in the midst of turmoil, be fierce about your inner listening. From that center point, feel your life's rhythm. Synchronize with it and watch your positive energy grow. Resist the rhythm and see how your energy dwindels. The art of living is to listen to signals. There's an ease to letting your insticts guide. Intuition isn't a luxury; it's mandatory for a joyous life. Risk trusting it. I guarantee: your energy will flourish."
