  6. Your solar plexus chakra gets out of line easily.

  1. Here’s what an empath is from a professional and a couple good links:

    “Empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme, and are less apt to intellectualize feelings. Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world. Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually attuned, and good listeners. If you want heart, empaths have got it. Through thick and thin, they’re there for you, world-class nurturers. ” ~ Dr. Judith Orloff
