To all the deep feelers out there, this one’s for you. Feeling deeply is actually a blessing (not a curse), which is what inspired me to share the following selection of Empath quotes: simple and supportive reminders about the benefits of being sensitive.

How do you know if you’re an Empath? According to spiritual teacher, Patricia Clum, “Some people are born with a hypersensitivity towards ‘feeling’ others. If you’re able to easily feel the emotions of others, it’s likely that you fall into the category of being an Empath.”

If you’re in this camp, and may have taken on energies or emotions that aren’t helpful,  Patricia Clum offers a great explanation of how to stay energetically clear as an empath.

To move through this world as an empathic person with clear energetic boundaries, is possible for all sensitive people. I’ve personally experienced some big shifts in this direction thanks to techniques like Emotional Resolution, great supports like The Presence Process, and practices like cold dipping and breathwork that help to release stagnant energy and emotion.

The following Empath quotes beautifully highlight the gifts of being empathic, and why being able to feel deeply matters so much, in fact, may even change the world.  

“The beauty of being Empathic is that life continues to inform you of the Magic of existence. Your whole body is an antenna that connects the walking world with the universe.”

– Patricia Clum, Co-Founder, Evolution of the Heart.

“We can only fully tap into all that our emotional intelligence has to offer when we are able to really sit with what we are feeling, even when what we are feeling is pain. There is a certain kind of magic that comes through pain, for it is where we learn of our power to keep going no matter what we go through,”

Cleo Wade, Author + Poet.

“When awakened, empaths are capable of seeing the symbolism in situations. We can look at what’s happening in our bodies, our businesses, and the world and understand the deeper meaning.”

Colette Davenport, Empath Coach

“It’s an Empath’s responsibility to take care of themselves, to heal and to grow so that they can powerfully stand in their gifts and shine their light of what’s possible into the world.”

Patricia Clum, Founder, Wild Heart Sisterhood

“All humans are Empaths and all Empaths have psychic gifts.”

Maribeth Stephens, Akashic Records Intuitive

“Each of life’s challenges is a lesson in some aspect of love. How we respond to these challenges is recorded within our cell tissues. We live within the biological consequences of our biographical choices.”

– Carolyn Myss, Author, Anatomy of the Spirit

“In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.” 

– Eckhart Tolle, Spiritual Teacher + Author
