Last week I was discussing Anita Moorjani's must-have book for empaths, Sensitive Is the New Strong. I'd like to share some snippets of wisdom from the book. Perhaps they will speak to you as well.
On why we are here:
"Empaths are highly advanced souls being incarnated on earth in increasing numbers to shed light into the darkness during this time of transformation."
On the struggles of empaths:
"Our downfall, or our curse, is our inability to distinguish other people's needs and emotions from our own, and our need to make everyone else feel good before we can feel good ourselves. This is what draws us out of our inner sanctity and into other people's dramas, and why it feels like we carry a heavy burden on our shoulders. We also struggle, as we've seen, with trying to fit in to a world that's not geared toward us -- we're six-sensory beings living in a five-sensory world."
On how to keep from being unbalanced by other people's emotions:
"It is not your job to absorb everyone else's energy. It is not your job to rescue people at your expense or convince them of what is possible if they don't believe you. Your only job is to empower yourself, to stay connected to your center, and allow your presence to inspire others so they know what is possible in order to heal, if it's their fate to do so."
