Publisher's Summary

Empathy: A Guide on Using Your Gift, Overcoming Fears, and Healing Your Inner Empathy and Emotional Intelligence Mastery 2.0.

Do you feel what other people feel? Do you find yourself influenced, overwhelmed, and exhausted by the energies around you? As an empath, you need to channel and control your gift.

Left unchecked, the gift of empathy can have a devastating effect on your life. As someone who is sensitive to those around you, you must learn to understand, guard, and express your gift in ways that benefit the world. Do this right, and you’ll master your own powerful healing energy.  

In Empathy, I take you on a candid journey through what it means to identify as an empath. By walking this path with me and learning about your gift, you’ll discover how to be the best version of yourself possible. No more confused feelings, toxic people, and disharmony in your life! 

In this guide you’ll learn:

  • About the two distinct types of empaths and which you are
  • The science of empathy and why you feel like you do
  • How you were born to heal others and create harmony in specific environments
  • How to protect yourself from negative energy, manipulators, and toxic people
  • The healing exercises that will sharpen and refine your empathy skill
  • How you can best express your gift by discovering your key strength

Discover how to manage your gift with this insightful guide. Get the guide to be a guide now!

You have likely heard of empathy before, but when talking about empaths, things start to get a little more specific. Empathy isn’t to be confused with sympathy, which is easier to have. Sympathy is feeling sorrow for another person, usually because of a specific misfortune. Empathy is when you have the ability to understand their pain, making it more impactful to you and the other person when you feel it. 

Perhaps you know nothing about empaths, or maybe you are a seasoned one yourself, checking out new material. At the surface level, an empath is a person with a special ability to pick up on someone else’s feelings and emotions. On a deeper level, empaths require a much more thorough analysis. 

There’s no exact empath test. While going through the book, there will be certain situations presented that you might not have. Everyone’s version of empathy is variant, and there’s not an exact guideline for how one can use their empath abilities. You might create boundaries yourself, but throughout this audiobook, do not feel discouraged if you do not relate to a certain part. You might feel one symptom intensely, while you might also feel each of them on a smaller level.

Healing Your Inner Empathy

The Empathy Effect is for parents with disabled children. It’s for caretakers, whether caring for an ill family member, as well as nurses and doctors treating patients on a daily basis, etc.. After reading this book and absorbing the power of the seven keys I feel very strongly that The Empathy Effect, coupled with a training environment should be made mandatory for teachers at all levels of education. It should be compulsory for politicians beginning with the president of this nation, as well as for leaders charged with managing subordinate personnel. This book is a must for all leaders in the military branches responsible for directing subordinate troops; for all law enforcement agencies as this book has the potential to save hundreds of lives; for juvenile detention facility staff, and any other entity where there is the chance of blunting, rather than engaging empathy in others.

Love this book!

The Empathy Effect is must for physicians because of the research based underpinnings of the poiwer of empathy in the doctor/patient relationship. However, as a nonpractioner, I found Part II even more valuable. The book highlights how empathy improves parenting, education, and leadership, etc. All areas in my life that I continually aim to improve. It's written in accessible and helpful language with tangible examples.

I have read a lot of this author's work. He uses the analogy of a cup to illustrate the importance of learning to be present and to learn to dissociate from our sub personalities.

Wonderful for kids and adults

My two year old loves this book. He recites "I am not alone. I am connected to my friends, my family and to the world." I think it is perfect for daily mindfulness.

Great book on working with emotions

Great book on working with emotions and empathic skills. At times, I found it hard to follow the language, how she creates her own terms for various techniques and then references them throughout the book.

Empathy - appealing but elusive

There is a wider philosophical problem. We are urged to transfer concern from our own self to other people’s self, but it is still self which benefits.

Convincing case for empathy

This book makes a convincing case that the key ingredient in human progress has been our ability to continue to see the world from someone else's perspective.
