I cannot imagine being a psychologist or psychiatrist as an empath. Kudos to this lady.

@Christine B I get it - I'm also a healer and had to learn the same thing. Yes, those who don't learn get burned out. I'm grateful for this gift every day.

@jfdc I'm also an empath ,HSP, and and Licensed Therapist. It took a few years to learn how to protect myself with clients and not take on their energy. Empath therapist who don't learn how to do this don't last long in the field.

if your like me its because you understand the emotional fluidity of being thus you know intuition is the only objective logical way to assess emotional psychological health. Synchronicity is the fundamental constant underlying all health. Being an empath is the noticing of the connection between subtle or overt emotional expressions and the psychological concerns of a person. Putting a circle around the 5 senses helps to visualize and integrate my subconcious and conscious worlds as well as understanding that my power is my power always and when it isnt im too focused on one sense or perspective and this leaves me open to exploitation. The circle is synchronicity the prism like fishbowl all of us are swimming in

As an alternate opinion: I'm both an empath and HSP and I can't imagine going to a therapist who ISN'T... they just don't get us! Many ppl who are empaths and/or HSPs are the ones who seek therapy. We seek therapy cuz we really need someone who understands us in this world where most ppl are not this way. Those ppl who are neither, just can't get us cuz you can't describe the taste of chocolate to someone who has never tasted chocolate. I think in order to be a good therapist, you MUST be an empath and adding HSP to it is even better. Otherwise, how would you be able to relate to what your clients are feeling?

I'm so thankful to the people that are teaching us about empaths. I'm 63 years old and a male, and had no idea why my life has been really bad until recently, when I learned about empaths. Learning this has led me to meditation and other techniques to help me control my thinking. Financially, this problem is cost me a ridiculous amount of money. Thankfully, what I have been learning in this past couple of months, is turning my life around completely. Thank you very much for your openness.

Better late than never, even though it's a pity. But don't look back because you couldn't know. Do you have any specific sources you can recommend? Like which meditation you are doing or other advices? I mean maybe apart from the advices we get from this video :). I myself are struggling much with my feelings and they are paralyzing my actions sometimes or making me suffer so much (like for example Ukraine or other wars and fates I know about).. Or also word's that hurt too much..

@Betsy Monroe I believe there are different levels of extroverts and introverts. From what I've been learning, they would label me as an empath. I absolutely REQUIRE my alone time/downtime, days when I speak to no one because I don't work at the time, yet when I am out of the property I am the first to say hello, I guess you'd call that friendly where others would say I'm an extrovert. An introvert isn't usually outwardly friendly. They are usually mouseie and quiet. So there are different levels.

@Betsy Monroe I agree 100%. These people are lying. They just want to believe that they are empaths, but that's completely out of the question. They probably just want it a lot. But if you're really an empath, the company of people is extremely destructive and exhausting, and you do anything to be alone as often as possible. Because it's just not fulfilling for you to be among the people.

As an emapth I can honestly say that my daily Qigong practice saved my sanity, it enhanced and secured the quality of my life in an unutterable way. To do Qigong, Yoga, esp Yin Yoga and meditation on a daily basis gives me the security that I can always pull myself out of low vibrational energies. What also helped me a lot was to change my mindset, because I used to think that other people tried to put their energetic trash on me (and others) on purpose, which made me really angry. Nowadays I understand that a lot of people are 'just' so unaware about their way of being, that they walk through life dumping their trash everywhere. A lot of humans don't care about their physical environment, so why would they care about the astral domain...?

I think qi gong put my empath into overdrive. I recall a friend visiting who smoked pot. When I came home, I was 20 or so feet away from him and felt high. I hate that feeling. Couldn’t wait for him to leave. I’ve been battling weight since then - I think I’m holding on to someone else’s weight as weight loss efforts before that worked haven’t since… That was 20 years ago. Still fighting that and other stuff I’ve absorbed from people.

@Char Char this is so so true, you said it spot on! And absolutely, I defiantly got very upset at myself for allowing myself to have spent so much time with a narcissist just to discard me, it hurts because you feel so stupid. But all we can do is look ahead and be glad that in a way they set us free, we would of continued numb to their verbal abuse , no more trending on egg shells and having to be attacked for not being ‘perfect’

@Your Relaxation Hub You are as well My Dear. Our energy is indeed valuable, I've had to learn that the hard way. I spend a lot of time alone, and that's where I'm the most peaceful. Also remember to forgive yourself for dealing with the narc. Sometimes we beat ourselves up for ever getting involved with them, but it's part of the lessons we need to learn.

Thank goodness I found this video, I had no idea throughout my whole life how and why I was so sensitive in my involvement with other people including my close family. All the traits mentioned help me understand where I fit into this world and make sense of it. I'm embarrassed to say I'm reached the age 68 recently too. I really am so relieved to know I'm not alone.

I was diagnosed early in my life as a natural born Empath, but they really didn't know what to call it in the 50's It was a course of study at that time at the university. Their interest in me was; "what is it that I'm doing, or seeing in a woman's body, to see if she's pregnant or not." As a six year boy, I came under a lot of abuse; even physical while living in the Allegheny mountains. I have to keep my mouth shut...! Your questions at this point as a 73 year man, how has this effected me growing up and the effects on my life. Well, what I pick-up on, is the fact that people in general, see me as a weirdo. So, I had to go into hiding; as if I were a person with a concealed weapon... never say anything about anything to other's. I could see things that is going to happen in people, before it happens. Being married to a non-Empath is something - I don't recommend - Thankfully my daughter, now close to her 50's I've been able to help her in her quest of being a normal acting person. There is no-one you can trust. People who have many problems, we recommend concealing of some kind. These are the types who hover over us for some sort of guidance. Many of these children that I refer to as children have no real education because of the home they grew up in. Teaching or showing these type of people, again children, we show them that the main responsibility rest upon their head to take control. I didn't mention the many other capabilities that I have like while sleeping, it may take a day it may take a week but answers come through a process that happens to me naturally, problem solved. One last word on being concealed or in hiding, I have the ability, (astuteness) to see others as good but especially the bad ones who are honing their skills and can and do, see me. But there's no one to tell, no one. So I have a way of making them known. Mostly, this has been beneficial but at the same time a curse. Thanks

@judithorloffmd I believe it is of the utmost importance. I learned that I am an empath at a very early age. I’m grateful I had very loving parents and grandma to help me process things differently- than for example, angry outbursts or violence as some may resort to. Now I want to consider how I can use my art to teach more about empathy and processing daily life. Thank you 😊

I enjoy being alone, in nature, and creating on my own. I’ve honestly never heard of an extroverted empathic energy. I mean when I was younger I enjoyed being around people however as I’ve aged I cannot deal with all the negative energies outside my door. I can create, think clearly, and manifest in solitude.

@Athony Higgins Empathy is real and it has been neurologically modelled in the brain. Just as with any trait in the brain or the body, there is a spectrum across the population. It has been shown in a number of studies that there is, in fact, a spectrum of empathy - most people are somewhere in the middle of the bell-curve. However, there are people with extreme, dysregulated levels of empathy - they would be called empaths. There are people who are pathologically lacking in empathy - they have literally zero - they are called sociopaths.

@MiaMaria20 I believe that guy Tony is a sad troll. Actually, I just freaking hate trolls, just as well as I know I should understand the underlying sadness there. He doesn´t answer. But he has an issue with empathy, that is for sure, with no scientific, or whatever proof at all. All he seems to be very very worried about is the term. Bullshit. He doesn´t care. He is just trying to be a little evil. Poor man, that is all he gets then. He is a little evil. How sad is that.

@Athony Higgins Well HI THERE Tony! It is just a word and you know it. Actually it means people with high empathy level. Just as there are people with high IQ level. There are words as well, like "genious" which could be also whatever, highly intelligent Santa Claus if you wish. There are people who are called "long" and there are people who are called "short." Who cares about the terms. Would you really argue that there are no people with low empathy level and no people with middle empathy level and no people with very very high empathy level, that we are all the same? If so, the whole scientific world wants to know hear about your brand new theory. You know you are just a little troll trying to be a little evil and "stand out of the dumb crowd". You just made yourself seem like a man with a huge issue about empathy, maybe you are lonely and wonder why. I have news for you: being a smiling troll makes you lonely. Stop doing that. Relax and accept people as they are.

@E N Here's a reframe for You. The sound is a frequency code from Your Higher Self or some benevelent or Divine source, to balance and upgrade mental and genetic coding. When the tone starts, stop everything gather your attention and and focus on it, accept it as a download and absorb it. The first time I did this it incrrased slightly in intensity and then stopped after a very short moment as though I had integrated it and received the complete message, so it no longer needed to be transmitted, as opposed to instead trying to block it out, and it having to keep sending, because it's not getting recieved. It's worth trying, this technique is only new to me, but I couldn't resist sharing as the results have been so good so far. All the best.

Some of these adjectives make sense to me, staying home & quiet helps me. Being around people gives me nervous energy. Going to big stores with lots of stuff is overwhelming. Anything to do with animals makes me either cry or laugh depending on the context. As many of you say, other people don't always understand because they live so easily. I've developed tinnitus, it's the most challenging difficult life changing thing I pray to overcome it. I'm hoping to cultivate some of what you all are contributing.

Being an empath or a highly sensitive person isn't a curse. Learn to recognize your 'self' apart from your empathetic side and be brave enough to speak your truth, cause in the end you will be alone and those you need have always been there. Being an empath isn't a fight with narcissists. We are not VICTIMS, be aware of your gifts and use them 'when you want to.' Have a good one. 💜

Those who are not sensitive can make life more difficult for HSP and empaths. We have to work much harder to cope. But in learning the necessary skills we become both sensitive and strong. That is a formidable thing to be!!

Yes to the exhaustion. I can’t be around others for too long because I find the millions of nuances that they exude completely overwhelming. I notice the wear on their shoes, and it makes me concerned that their walking gait is unhealthy. I understand bees and I can predict their movement. I watch how people’s eyes move and how quickly. How they dilate. If blinking is out of rhythm. It can be overwhelming.

Well I am 39 year old single male, been married twice, 3 kids, and kind successful in my field now, and around 4 months ago I found out I was not alone. I believe I am a high sensitive Empath for sure. I thought something was wrong with me and that I was some kind dysfunctional person. I did not understand why the noice, light, crowded spaces, and groups of people bothered me so much. Why I wanted my space, wanted to be in nature all the time even though I grew up in the city and don't know any parts like that. Why I never enjoyed being around too many people, or in family gatherings. My mood would change depending on my environment really quick as well. My ahhh moment came when my mother was living with me for a couple months until recently when she moved out . With her I found out that I was very sensitive to her, and that after being around her for a couple minutes I felt really weird, so I started analyzing it everyday, then I searched on GOOGLE for people sensitive to other's energy and that's when I found this woman Judith. I started thinking back at all the issues I had in my life and started asking myself questions, like why did I feel so lazy with my first partner? Why did I feel some angry with my second partner? Why do I feel so negative with my mother, and so on. With ex partners it was horrible! In my first marriage it was better because I was young and was out of the house a lot more, but in my second marriage it was HORRIBLE. The partner I had was a very negative and angry person, and I would sponge all that and more. I could never get a good night rest because I would have crazy dreams and just felt so uncomfortable sleeping with her. After all these years and all these problems in different romantic, friend and family relationship problems, I GET IT. I was kind of upset for a little bit because I have suffered a lot in my life in relationships because how different I am. But better now than never, right? At least now I know what I am and have made adjustments in my life that helped me and others. My career has suffered a lot because I stopped working and giving my 100% years ago, and thank God my business can run on autopilot because I would be broke if it wasn't . Now finally I am able to work, connect with people "At a distance" more. Another thing that I wanted to put out there for anybody reading this. The weirdest thing just happened to me, right now and I realized that it happened before. I was sleeping in the bed my mother was sleeping and I started having a bunch of dreams, and I felt in the dreams I was her. Now I understand why I had so many dreams when I slept in my Ex's bed in the past when we were broken up and tried to work things out. I slept in her bed and dreamt of somebody she was seeing and I just could not sleep that night or any other, even though she had broken up with him. With time I understood that my EX was a very toxic person I could not be around her or anybody else that had bad energy or problems.

I thought I was crazy but knowing that I am not the only person that feels too much,loves too much, is very sensitive etc..I feel more at peace now. Feels good to be different and yes managing the personally without losing it is very important so am very lucky to have found this video...its like an online therapy session...

I am introverted big time and spend most of my time at my home in the rain forest and with my 2 dogs. It seems I feel everything and it has been difficult and my family scapegoated me and let me know I was scary,different, wrong. Never supported. After the parents passed i eventually understood I needed to be done because there was nothing left to hold the "CRAZY GLUE" together. But my family actually became worse as far as scapegoating gos.I write daly for as long as I can remember. I must focus on me. instead of them.

I am both introvert and extrovert empath. I love being home alone, and yet if you can get me out, I love being with whomever I am with, even large groups. I have always been amazing with animals too. I love working with horses with emotional issues, its like I can read and fix them. My biggest struggle has been all the emotions on fb 2020-2021. Its been a big struggle. My business is on there so I can’t avoid it. I also get physical pains from some people, my co-worker always seemed to pass me her ailments. haha. Its tricky being an empath. emotional and anxiety, but we can recharge and heal ourselves pretty fast too.

I'm an older empath... meaning I've learned a few things being one. I noticed that with so much pain in the world and people as individuals... I've just sometimes had to check out emotionally... just to keep my sanity. Years ago...I went to Macy's. I wanted to do something nice for myself and buy some perfume. I was at the cosmetic counter purchasing Estee lauder .. the cosmetic lady...felt that she could open up her whole relationship details to me.... on and on about her marriage and relationship problems. I was understanding and empathetic. I think she felt that I was a compassionate person. So, she continued on and on.... as though I was her therapist and she was sitting in the chair. By the time I left and was in the parking lot..I noticed that I could hardly walk...literally....I was limping to my car. That day didn't go as I planned. I wanted to pamper myself however it turned out that I was supporting someone else at my own expense. Now I redirect people. I won't sit in their emotions with them... especially if the situation doesn't call for it.

I am an Empath and an intuitive Empath at that. My Shrink told me this! I went for help asking “what’s wrong with me??” I have lived for a long time berating myself…”I am stupid” “It’s my fault” “I will never achieve that” and on and on! These are all feelings that built over time…years. I am One of six children and two out of control parents. I was an Empath living with TWO narcissistic parents. The OVERLOAD of emotion in this environment nearly destroyed me. I am still a jittery mess and have to rope my self in constantly!!!!

The hardest part for me about being an Empath is working. Every workplace I have ever worked in was toxic and led to major illness for me (I have been working for over 20 years in many environments.) I have 100% control over my home environment and have created a peaceful. loving home. Yet, when I leave my home I am constantly bombarded with other people's toxic energy, especially at work where I have no place for myself (work in an open office.) How do you create boundaries with co-workers and clients when your job is to serve their needs? (I work in a service profession.) I want to work from home but so far I have no success at getting hired even though I have applied for many work at home jobs. What do I do in the meantime? I am sick again....thanks to my empathy.

Thanks great conversation. I am curious about when empaths are viciously attacked after they set personal boundaries. Manipulative people see empathy as weakness. They're adept at sniffing potential empathy, hard to hide. Another question I ask myself is "Is this empathy or is it codependency?" Blurred lines... My friend seems to be slipping into oblivion, repeating the tasks of the day almost like Rainman. There's no real deadline either! So I'm concerned. But am I also worried bc I need my friend? Isn't that a codependent concern?

It seems that my empath abilities are extremely high and all over the place. I feel everything in life human and nonhuman. I also have had psychic abilities since I was a very young child. No one helped me understand these problems and it has been extremely hard for me. I am now taking control of my life thanks to what I have been learning. It seems that this should be taught in schools and to psychiatrist everywhere and we may not have the mental health issues that we have in society today. Thank you ladies enjoy your day

I had the same experience growing up. I'm now 25 years old and barely learning about my abilities. I was led to believe I was clinically insane up to this point. I never accepted that fate, but was left in frustration and anger trying to figure out how to go about daily life without losing my mind. It helps to know there's other people out there who have had the same experiences and are now thriving ❤️

Empaths make great counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists. That intuitiveness really helps heal others. Good nurses are often empaths as are any healing profession. I found teaching persons with IDD are my favorite people of all. Funny, I had my daughter, Down Syndrome and it was lovely. She developed brain issues like Autism, so she's very different now but I truly understand her and have 5 tons of patience. Most say, how do you do it? To me, it's not that hard if you get them.

It sucks being an empath, u can never get ahead its always something u dealing with, u stress more about other ppl problems than ur own. But the first time i heard the narc yell, she rung the inside of my soul. Being alone is calling my name🤞🏾

I’m sorry that you felt no one was there for you who could help you as an Empath fifteen years ago. That must have left such a huge, gaping wound in your heart, to not be supported, advised, and encouraged. My mom’s a minor Empath, so she was able to help me. This video confirms what we already know, doesn’t it?

Tysm for this! I am an extroverted, highly sensitive, intuitive, emotional, physical, full blown empath who has lost two adult daughters. I have felt from the day I was born that my nervous system is on the outside of my body. I am positive I am usually an energy vampire to many, because I am fully aware of when people ask others for an "out" when they expect to see me. One thing I have learned to do that helps is that I have come up with gentle ways others can cue me that I am being too extra in a way that will not hurt my feelings. Sadly, I think I took on so much before I became aware of biting off too much that my body has turned against itself and I am now disabled. Sadly, that makes me lonely though I make art with the hundreds of 4 leaf clovers I have always found (Irony!). I am in a nurturing environment now. Being in my own space as disabled can lead me to feel like a lonely stay at home mom with no minor children. I do have 2 beautiful granddaughters! I also have a wonderful, introverted ,empathic guy who shares life with me, and who struggles with cancer also. I do not want to be an energy vampire to him, or anyone. I love going to raves w/ no drugs! Upbeat, Happy music is important to me. My 2 sons can now go with me. I have names for my inner egos. I am not D.I.D. I call my inner child KerryAnne. My inner critical parent is Martha. Ironically,that is also a nickname I call my mom. She is academia city as a PhD Counselor and Professor. She has never known what to do with my over-feeling self. KerryAnne loves to play in the sandbox. I did do some therapy with transactional analysis as a teen and it was very helpful! I REALLY appreciate this WHOLE chat! Tysssvm!

i watched the movie Buddha and i was so surprised to find he and i had same thoughts and in the movie its easy to see how everything affects everyone on different levels in the same situation and it explains very easily what i find exhausting trying to explain what we want to reach as being emphatic and as far as the guy that wants a scale on empathy he does not realize he too is a bit narcissistic when a person is nice person and at times is direct its a sign he/she does not like your personality or your ethics and at times that nice person just does not want to be nice trying to be assertive to communicate in some way your personality traits are not to their liking so stop trying to analyze

I've noticed being more and more drained by others recently I'm sure I'm picking up extra negativity because of the time of year it's the build up to Christmas,we empaths know narcs hate this time of year.I actually felt as though I got hit in the throat last week which really shocked me,I'm pretty clued up with others energies , but never felt this before,even my hematite,black tourmaline,black obsidian are struggling when normally they work so powerfully and quickly,

My intuition has saved my life. I’m glad my boyfriend listened to me. It’s not logical. I Can’t go in the house. Why? I don’t know. There’s a hotel by my house. I could get you a room, and drive you to work in the morning. Okay. He drove me home after work. We went upstairs. I unlocked the front door. My roommates were AA members. They had started drinking. One assaulted the other. There was a bloody skillet on the floor, blood and broken furniture everywhere. My boyfriend helped me clean up. We never told anyone at church. I’m glad my boyfriend listened. It sounds stupid. I can’t go upstairs and I don’t know why.

This connection to people or animals who I could feel needed me drew me like a magnet. Could, would not walk away from pain. Interesting observation for me, now I know I wasn't wrong, was as a brown person meeting people, being blown away with negative feelings Thank you, feel free

I’m a empath, but In the work environment I definitely take on narcissistic elements, because If I don’t, everybody would affect me. Sometimes that makes ppl feel like they are insignificant. But, you can’t be everybody friend. So I see it as a protective measure, a boundary, coping mechanism that I can do perhaps more compassionately.

Expressing feelings isn't so bad as you have to release it, it's not always considered to be an energy vampire if you have a genuine reason to express emotions, ok a person who just complains for the sake of it probably is an energy vampire. It is very painful to be an empath unless you can get that peaceful place to recharge.

I'm not the typical empath. I love to go out and socialize but I have to take a break periodically. I can go out by myself, travel by myself, go out to eat by myself because I know I'll meet someone or someone will talk to me. People always find me and talk to me. Being around people doesn't bother me. I do feel restored after a beach trip. I don't like the woods, forest or that type of nature. Only the beach.

It would be so nice if there was some way to explain to others when you are a person that has this ah, curse/gift that encompasses the 6 different 'types' and is easily overwhelmed at what seems critical periods of time for other's(s) - darn, a hard subject to explain. Just being in a relationship is very difficult at times when outside influences enter the realm and it seems that even carefully worded diplomacy is mis-understood when requesting a period of privacy at my separate apartment (the only way to keep our relationship going) for a moment of self-preservation. I have to admit that at least I can consul myself that others are possibly in the same position, excellent that Dr. Orloff is presenting a platform for others - even risking judgement and or ridicule from peers by publishing journals. Do hope I am conveying this correctly for others to relate. At the moment, I am in a proactive phase where I am searching for 'tools' to present to others that collide into my space like asteroids - it is not enough to just say no at times, I need visual aids to distract whatever agenda they may be on (a preservation tool). Bless be and stay healthy y'all.

Glad I found this video. It REALLY resonated with me. I understand what many are talking about here. I once went into a grocery store and felt everyone's energy at once and could almost hear their thoughts. It was overwhelming. I can not always be in crowds for too long dependent on the energy of the group. I have to be careful who I surround myself with for sure and definitely no narcissists if at all possible. I have been sensitive and an empath my whole life obviously, but just realized this gift later in my life. I have other psychic abilities as well, which have helped me to be discerning with people and situations as well as saved me from harm. I've had some very strange experiences. I do not try to go looking for experiences. I believe as a Christian God will show me truth. Please if any of you have these abilities be careful. Be centered and grounded. Be very careful what you say and do in this world and who you communicate with. Not only are there dangerous people in this world, but dangerous spirits and otherwise. They can deceive you. This is not to say that I don't believe we have good spirits that watch over us. I do believe there is a shift in consciousness occurring and Christ our saviour will return. I trust in God first. He will not lead me astray. Be kind to yourself and others.

Hi I am an empath and I started a new job about a month ago and now dread going to work because one person I work closely with is always watching me and micromanaging me to the point where I feel constantly disrupted, cannot get into a flow at all and a lot of things go on the backburner and then I get the blame for them not being done on time because he has distracted me with another errand. I approached the boss about it and he was very defensive of his long-time employee and explained that because I am new, I need to listen to everything he says-.This job pays well compared to my previous role (Uber Driver) and there are a lot of opportunities for advancement but I am questioning whether it is worth the emotional toll it is taking on me.

I've been making music about this for a long time before consciously embracing empathicness as part of my identity. Which helped... sort of... Because doing anything online, as an introverted empath, is an almost a ridiculous challenge to my nature. How does one be loud about being quiet? I haven't found the formula yet but it's good there are many others who feel the same

As an Empath myself i would have to leave large crowds and gatherings or sit in a corner quietly put ear phones in to center/steady my self from all the noise and energy firing at me. The more i learn about myself the more pieces of me clicks together, comments that family and friends would say about my character and habits such as being a child and disappearing into a book, not letting people touch me almost like i was guarding myself, being to generous that it was becoming my all makes sense now!
