Self Help Resources for Empaths

A page filled with a variety of of books and courses to help you move forwards with your life. I will add more as I find them. With the constant bombardment upon our senses every day from pollution, noise and information, it can be good to step off that endless treadmill of demands, pressure and stress.

There is another page with a course on the ancient practice of Ho’oponopono. See it HERE!

We hear a lot about ‘me’ time these days but how many get the chance to actually indulge in some ‘me’ time. If we have time to ourselves we end up checking out things we need, doing paperwork/housework/laundry/DIY or even widening our knowledge for work related things rather than just relax.

Why not check these out and see if any of them resonate with you.


Are you an Empath?

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed when you are with other people? Feel unfamiliar feelings, often several different ones within  a short space of time. If so, does it feel exhausting? Do you try and avoid big gatherings of people or even small ones?

If you are answering YES to those questions then you are Empathic.

Empaths are highly attuned to other people’s moods, sometimes to the extreme.

An example: I used to sit on a bus, years ago, and didn’t understand why I would feel sad, then happy, then anger, then upset. It took a long while of searching for information to realise that I was empathic and the feelings were other people’s.  I was absorbing their emotions without understanding anything about it.

Survival Guide For Empaths:


I found it difficult to find information to understand why I got the feelings and give a name to it. Knowing that is half the battle and knowing that you are not alone in having these feelings also helps. You can learn to control it so you don’t have to avoid crowds and social situations.


It can also be useful as you can understand how a person is feeling, very helpful in some jobs.


A helpful book:

A second book that you may find helpful in dealing with being an Empath and learning how to make it work for you.


It’s not easy learning to cope in today’s world with over crowded cities, shops, workplaces and most places you go. Add to that the constant bombardment of information constantly coming at us and the world becomes a place you want to escape from.

Sadly this isn’t a practical solution as we need to earn a living, use public transport and interact at times with others at social occasions etc. A little self help can go a long way in helping to overcome the sometimes distressing symptoms that can be caused by being Empathic.
