There are an abundance of resources and support groups for the Empath, but I thought we’d look at what would be helpful for any Empath to know when they discover they are one.
Personally, I had no clue how to write this, so as usual, when stuck for ideas, I asked my guides to assist.

There are seven steps
Trusting in yourself.
Practicing your abilities
We previously discussed Acceptance and Trusting in yourself.
Today we’ll at Research and Self-awareness.
Step three is: Research.
When you discover you are an empath, try to learn as much as about the subject as is possible. This is actually not too hard nowadays as there is truly an abundance of information out there on the internet. There isn’t even any need to pay for such information as it’s freely available.
I have seen Empath toolkits for sale. I don’t know much about them but I assume they would be helpful?
Toolkits tend to repackage what is already freely available and sell as new information. However, if you decide to pay for one, it may not provide the answers you seek because you do not really know what you are getting.
There are really many Empaths out there, and connecting to others through forums or support groups is a good start. Sharing experiences, ideas and personal thought with others who are of the same mind set can be very helpful.
Just remember, there are many informative sites out there that offer that type of information for free.
The Empath Guidebook is just one such book and many other giving souls have written some amazing work for the beginning Empath.
Step four is: Self-awareness.
Once you know and understand you are an Empath, it’s time to start observing yourself being an Empath, and looking at where your feelings begin and end. As amazing as it may seem, people, in general, really do not know themselves all that well. They might think that they do, but you’d be surprised at just how many refuse to really look at who they are being and how they react to things. Often the ego will not allow them to do so, fearing that they may not see themselves as a good or spiritual person or like what they see.
But knowing oneself does not mean you have to accept what you find. It’s not until you accept where you are at right now that you can begin to change what you wish to become.
Know yourself. Trust in what you feel. Feel what you know and you will begin to understand who you really are. Define your boundaries. Declare to the world: ‘This is who I am’ and take pride in it.
Who you are is personal. No one can tell you to be something you are not, or who you don’t wish to be. Whatever you choose to be, let every action reflect that, and in the course of time, you will become that person.
Be aware. Always look at your thoughts and actions and decide if that is who you wish to be.
