How to Know if You're an Empath

how to know if you're an empath
Could empathy actually be a kind of telepathy?

What is an empath exactly and how to know if you are one?

Have you noticed how many people are now calling themselves empaths?

In my view, there are more empaths on the planet now due to a rise in human consciousness and DNA activation. It’s my understanding that when your 4th DNA strand, or Heart Strand upgrades, your emotional body develops and becomes more sensitive. You can then receive subtler messages from the emotional body. You become more attuned to changes in energy and can even perceive others’ emotions and motivations.

As your heart expands, you become more intuitive. That's why I believe that empathy is a kind of emotional telepathy.

So how to know if you're an empath?

In this post, we'll be covering some of the most common characteristics associated with empaths. Note that empathic traits differ among individuals; you may possess a combination of these traits to varying degrees but you might not exhibit every trait on this list.
