Reader Question:  I have always been overwhelmed in crowds, my moods and emotions seem to be all over the place, I am very emotional and sensitive, I am content and at peace only when I am alone I feel very connected to god only when I am alone, it is as if I can't tell my feeling from others' feelings. I have been looking for answer, my first thought is I am crazy, so I started to looking for disorders that explained my symptoms, I came up with nothing. I was reading my horoscope, I know it sounds silly, there it was an empath, it describes me completely. I have never heard of it before, and I have no idea what to do with it. I am overwhelmed and scared please HELP. ~Kathleen, age 45

Response from Jaelin: Dear Kathleen, Empath is a term used to refer to a person feeling expanded sensitivity. It is nothing to be afraid of. Many people experience empathic tendencies and are considered Highly Sensitive People. Phylameana has many resources for Empaths. It is important to learn as much as you can about being energetically sensitive and methods to use to contain your own energy and develop good boundaries.

Meditation is helpful and I would suggest working directly with me or energy practitioners who work with Highly Sensitive People. There are many resources on the Internet. Please know that this is not something to fear. It is a step forward in your personal evolution. The most important thing to work with is establishing your energetic boundaries. You will begin to feel more like yourself and learn to regulate your sensitivity.
