An empathic person experiences someone’s feelings as if they were their own. Like most things in life, being an empath can be both rewarding and difficult, but a true empath’s heart always leads them toward helping others. Here are six ways to become more empathic if you’re interested in enhancing this gift so you can center your energy and help others:

- Trust What You’re Feeling
An empath should learn to trust the thoughts and feelings that come their way even if they don’t make sense at first. Eventually, a seemingly innocuous word or odd feeling will make sense. It’s like having an aha moment where letting your feelings flow freely leads you to the answer. This practice is like bodybuilding—you build strength as you learn to trust the process and practice it. Trusting your feelings builds your psychic confidence and makes you a better empath.
- Find Time for Quiet Meditation
Meditation, as in sitting in the lotus position, is great if you can do it, but it doesn’t always come easily to everyone, even the psychically in tune. But even having a little alone time can be enough to quiet the mind and center yourself. I like to say, “Find your zen any way you can.” If meditation doesn’t work, choose something else that helps you “zone out” in a healthy way.
- Ground Yourself in Nature
Part of feeling other people’s emotions and energies involves being somewhat sponge-like. Even though you’re soaking up someone else’s feelings, it’s important to wring your spongy self out, so to speak. That’s why spending time in nature is great for empaths. Grounding yourself by literally touching the earth with your feet and/or hands helps you dissipate any energy you’ve absorbed from others, negative or otherwise. It also gives you that centered feeling that’s so necessary to do what you do.
- Spend Time with Animals
Animals remind us that there’s only one way to live—in the present. Being “fully present” brings clarity of thought, eliminates distractions, and quiets the chatter. There are so many messages and/or emotions coming through at once in an empath’s head. Why not be present and enjoy unconditional love at its best?
- Get Close to Your Element
If you know your astrological sun sign, then you know whether you’re an Earth, Water, Fire or Air sign. Getting close to your element brings you fully back to your connection with “self.” Think of the relaxed feeling you get when you sit near a lake or stare at a roaring fireplace; Water and Fire signs know what I’m talking about! Air signs can simply open the door and breathe in the fresh air and Earth signs find peace in planting gardens or walking in the woods.
- Avoid Loud and Crowded Places
No one is saying you should become a hermit, but empathic people just seem to flourish when the environment is calmer and quieter. If you’re empathic then you know how overwhelming it can be after a while when you’re in a loud bar with people chattering, music playing, and emotions flying all over the room. By all means, go out and have some fun, but also make sure you have an exit strategy for that moment when you realize you’ve had enough fun for one night.
All of the tips mentioned here are focused on centering your energy. If you’re an empath or a highly sensitive person and you’re looking for ways to become more empathic, follow these suggestions. You’ll find that centering yourself enables you to enhance your abilities more and more over time.
