A guide for every empath and spiritually sensitive soul to explore their abilities with exercises, affirmations, and creative journaling, as well as methods to protect themselves.

Are you an empath looking to better understand yourself and your place in the Universe?

To be an empath is an art form—to discover how our perceptions guide and inform us, shape us, and at times limit us, requires extraordinary awareness. It also requires the skills and the strength of a lion because it takes real courage to be empathic. The good news is that there are ways to protect yourself while living with an open heart and this book shows you how to use creative visualization for that purpose.

The Way of the Empath explores ways to understand empathy and how to use mystical, spiritual, and imaginative insight to better understand our place in the universe. You'll learn how to see the unseen and welcome the mysteries of life through psychic events and fun encounters.

With a guiding hand, The Way of the Empath covers how to:
  • Put yourself in a state of receiving
  • Take note of synchronistic events and signs
  • Protect yourself
  • Change your perceptions of reality
  • Access intuitive knowing through creative drawing and journaling
This book will allow you to experience synchronicity and serendipity while living with great zeal and mirth—the sign of true heart-centered intelligence!
