While empathy is a wonderful trait to have, it’s also possible to have too much of a good thing. Unless they have strong boundaries, extremely empathic individuals, or empaths, often end up feeling overwhelmed, disconnected from self, and overly emotional as a result of taking on the negative energy of others.
Tune in Thursday at 8 a.m. for The Original Loretta Brown Show (repeats Monday at 6 a.m.) as your host Loretta Brown interviews Wendy DeRossa.
In Becoming an Empowered Empath: How to Clear Energy, Set Boundaries & Embody Your Intuition (New World Library, March 30, 2021), Wendy DeRosa, a preeminent and pioneering expert on this subject, helps readers understand their empathic nature and offers the practical tools they need to restore their energetic boundaries, honor their intuitive gifts, and fully express their personal power.
“This pattern of taking on other people’s energy often starts in childhood, before one learns to maintain emotional or energetic boundaries,” writes Wendy. “The work here is to clear the wounds you came into this world with and the wounds imprinted in your system in childhood so you can discover what power means for you.”
The techniques Wendy offers in Becoming an Empowered Empath include the embodied use of intuition as well as grounding, understanding, and working through trauma and wounds. The healing journey she outlines helps empaths thrive as the deeply grounded and divinely connected intuitives they truly are. They learn to embrace their gifts, embody light, and become what they are called to be: vital agents for positive change in their lives and in the world around them.
“Your gift as an empath is that you feel what’s true. You are connected to the subtle and can see beneath the layers,” writes Wendy. “By expanding your capacity to embody your empathic gifts, you become uniquely equipped to show others how to experience their authentic feelings and help heal the planet. This is a critical step at this time: we need empowered empaths who can give voice to what is unspoken, bring to light what is hidden, and heal what is suppressed.”
