Newbie to all of this amazing stuff
Welcome! From your post I can tell that you are someone who has a zest for life. Thank you for sharing all that nice energy!
It seems that most empaths are born that way and experience psychic and paranormal things from a young age. But in recent years we're seeing a lot of empaths awakening later in life in their 30s & 40s. This is a curious trend, and that's the case for me as well. Do you remember any special experiences in your teens and 20s where you showed empath signs back then but maybe unknowingly blocked it? I'm always curious about that.
Quick note on the stomach thing. I also carry some weight around my stomach, but it mostly shows from bloat. I deal with constant sensitive stomach issues. At least part of that is empath related. The solar plexus chakra is in our upper stomach and it is our emotional center. Perhaps a better name for an empath is to call us emotional empaths. And that's because we are excellent detectors, magnets, and analyzers of emotional energy. But in that process we absorb other people's emotional energy through our solar plexus and that causes stomach ache and stomach issues. Being slightly overweight also seems to be a common empath theme. I think part of that is emotional eating as a way to try to cope with some of that unwanted emotional energy through the fun of food. And then it is said that carrying a little extra weight actually protects empaths from harmful energy.
Two questions for you that were probably not on your empath quiz. But I ask everyone I can as I'm taking an informal poll. Do you experience any stomach issues or stomach soreness? And do you have trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep at night?
