Bloating and weight gain from toxic energy
I get it has to do with your third chakra. I'm trying this "I don't care" attitude, but that's hard because I start shaking if I don't help. Then I'm stressed all day if I don't help, like it lingers. I started exercising again, and I can honestly say that is the best energy cleansing for me. All that pent up energy I guess and I can run and bike for miles and miles, and not feel tired.

I agree with . It is true that many people gain weight when stressed or depressed. And as empaths we are flooded by those feelings most days so it would seem to reason that the tendency for weight gain would be there for us. If you ever go to an in person empath meeting you will notice that more than the average are a little over weight. It's a very common trait. I find myself grabbing some extra comfort food or adult beverages after a tough day. And that does add up for me.
I also have a bloating problem when I take on too much negative and aren't resting and relaxing enough. I can literally feel my solar plexus be sore or burn a little and then I'll bloat up in my stomach area. I recently had a particularly effective grounding session that completely deflated my bloated stomach in about 10 minutes. It was like watching a balloon deflate. That helped confirm for me that the bloating is empath related.
I see that gave you a really good response on adrenal issues that can cause weight gain. Many years ago when I was younger I went through some tough times and didn't eat much and I lost a bunch of weight from stress. But now that I am aware that I'm an empath, that doesn't really happen. I bloat out from my belly during times of stress and during times when I'm taking in a lot as an empath. But a side effect of being an empath is adrenal fatigue. Carrying around all that we do wears out our systems and you can have all sorts of imbalance. Cortisol is know as the stress hormone and it is a big one that gets messed up and causes weight gain. A good way t counter this is grounding meditation. And I take quite a few natural adaptogen supplements daily that help me keep my adrenals from getting out of whack.
And to answer your question, having stomach issues and/or bloat is a very common empath trait. I think part of it is that we get a nervous stomach from what we take in. And then the solar plexus chakra below the heart at the top of the stomach is where a lot of empaths take everything in from the world. I know this is true with me and I run into a lot of empaths who will complain about a sore stomach or lower chest pressure after a tough day.
In our busy society adrenal fatigue is a growing problem. But I think it's double or triple for empaths. Exercise by doing something you like to do is a great way to keep healthy. And I also forgot to mention that my wife had some sudden unexplained weight gain. She was even on a low cal diet and was still gaining weight by the day. She found out the culprit was a thyroid issue. She was put on some meds and the weight came right off. I don't know if that relates to you but I thought I'd throw it out there since a lot of people have thyroid issues.
