Hi Heidi Ann
Welcome to the EC. Drop by and visit the Library of Inspiration. I am including some links from the Library that will help you begin to understand more about us and yourself.
On Being an Empath
I Deserve / Be the Light
Throw some love into the wind.
I am including a link from the Library of Inspiration for both you and your son.
I suggest that you recite the Prayer for the Healing Angels throughout your day. It will make a big difference in your life and renew your energy. You may also wish to visit the Empath Survival Guide on the Home Page of the EC.
