Have you ever been told that you’re too sensitive? That you need to have thicker skin? This does not mean there is something “wrong” with you – it could simply mean you are a highly sensitive person, or an empath.


There is a way to turn this perceived weakness into your secret superpower but first let’s establish your level of sensitivity. In today’s video, I’m going to give you a list of signs, like a quiz, to help determine if you are indeed an empath.


In this Real Love Revolution video, I cover:

  • Signs You are an Empath
  • How to Protect Your Own Energy
  • How to Harness Your Empathic Powers
  • Identifying Your Empath Traits


The first indication of you being an empath is that people tell you that you’re very sensitive and seem to wear your emotions on your sleeve. Negativity also overwhelms you and you find that energy draining to be around. You don’t enjoy crowded places, like the mall, a large concert, a stadium, etc. You have excellent intuition and know about things that you’ve never been directly told. You are also extremely sensitive to pain and you feel other people’s’ feelings, which is exhausting as you are trying to process so many emotions and so much information all the time. People come to you with their problems and you are an excellent listener.

To learn more about whether you’re a highly sensitive person, download the full “Checklist: Signs You Are An Empath” below now to assess yourself and maybe those around you for empath traits. Once you know you’re an empath, you can find an easier, less overwhelmingly way to move through the world.

  1. Hello Terri,

    Thanks for the informative video. Highly Sensitive Person has become a bit of a buzz phrase recently – a title to cling to, a label to stick on your name tag. However, I feel like your comprehensive break down gives it more clout, and real life application that makes sense outside of self diagnosis gone wild (easy to do, thank you Doctor Google).

    I am curious to know a little more about qualifiers – meaning, how many of the traits should you fall under in order to consider yourself firmly HSP? I know that we are talking more about spectrum than strict degrees of qualification, but I do not fit the full description for HSP. Some of the signifiers (sensitivity to energy, environment and stimulus, etc)are totally spot on, and others not so.

    I suppose the most important thing is that I connect with your message (which I do, thank you) and can use your tips to form a symbiotic relationship with my nature. However, as body image advocate and confidence champion, it’s important to me that I approach this helpful and healing information with some accuracy (in so far as it is possible – and for their benefit as much as mine.) Your insight would be invaluable.

    Your vision and mission are beautiful. I’ll be keeping a keen eye on you.

    1. Anna,
      Thank you for your note, I appreciate you being here! Here are specifics on HSPs http://hsperson.com/ for you to learn more from the clinician who popularized the term in 1991. I agree with you that your attraction to the material tells u it is relevant to you. Keep up the great work xo

  2. Hi Terri, thank you for this video and especially the tips for coping high sensitivity (tonight I will try the salt bath), it totally resonated with me and it feels good to be understood.
    Earlier in life, I very often felt lonely and alien because I seemed to be the only one who was so sensitive and easily overwhelmed.
    I experience the same with sensing and getting influenced by collective energies on different weekdays but especially during the Christmas days and New Year´s Eve because of all the expectations, pressure and anxiety that I feel of the collective field. And I also can sense the men and women collective feelings, the women´s collective energy mainly when I´m on my period…
    XO, Gesine

  3. I identify so much with everything you listed here. I had a similar experience after viewing a disturbing film in a psychology class. Stuck with me for months. I was so worried at the time that I was having a breakdown. So validating to hear it’s also happened to others and not necessarily an indication of a negative trait or flaw. Thank you for sharing this!

  4. Totally identify!! However, wanting to avoid being labeled!! Looking forward to the “what to do” after accepting and knowing you’re an empath!!

  5. Hi Terri it does resonate with me a lot, growing up i was always told how sensitive i was but it was looked at by my family as bad i was always told that if i wanted to cry that they would help me with that. so i am really interested about seeing good in it than something wrong, about animals people tell me i treat them like really over board but i get so connected to animals and have not had any of this with a good thing so can not wait for your insight
    Thank you Sandra

  6. I cannot thank you enough for sharing this information. I have known for a long time that I am highly sensitive and yet, still ‘forget’ when I have reactions and feelings to situations, to be kind and gentle with myself, to continue to build practices that bolster my resiliency, to say no to things before I get overwhelmed beyond my capacity to cope. To be ok…and hopefully soon far more than ok with who I am and how I am in the world. It’s very validating to know this is true for others as well. Sometimes I feel like a freak as I just cannot do things that so many consider normal.

    1. You are not alone, Heather. So many people resonate with this and I’m so glad you’re here. Thanks for watching! XO, Terri
