If you are wondering if you are an HSP or Empath, here are some of the top characteristics.
There are many more but not to overwhelm you (a tendency of ours), I’ve come up with some of the most typical.
🌟 Easily overstimulated: your energy is affected or drained easily. You observe and take in far more details than the average person. You can go deep with them which can lead to overwhelm, burn out and/or exhaustion.
🌟 Daily quiet, alone time is a must: no ifs, ands or buts. This helps you recharge.
🌟 Fine-tuned intuition: you are highly intuitive if and when the self-doubt has vanished. It’s often a work in progress to get there but when you do, your intuition won’t lead you astray.
🌟 Rich and complex inner life: you can do the light chit-chat for a bit but you want to go deep. You have deep thoughts and strong feelings. This is far more interesting than making conversation for the sake of it.
🌟 Empathetic & caring: because you feel so deeply, with empathy and are emotionally responsive, you draw people to you. It is one of the most beneficial aspects of being an HSP/empath that you can use to shine in your life.
🌟 Deep connection with nature & animals: you have a strong desire to be in nature daily or even better, to live surrounded by nature. It calms and centers you. There is often a very special bond with animals, big and small. Communicating with animals is a favorite.
🌟 People tell you their secrets: strangers, co-workers and family members are drawn to you and like to tell you their deepest secrets without solicitation. They can feel that your energy is open, welcoming, loving and caring.
🌟 Special gifts: psychic, healing, visionary. Everyone has gift/s but the sensitive ones usually have rather unique ones. Many have the ability to sense, feel, see energies, communicate with spirits, heal with your hands, channel psychic messages, create art, etc. Many need coaxing, exploration and TLC so that you have the confidence to start sharing them.
There are so many amazing aspects of HSP/Empaths.
