There are many methods and materials available to help to cope with being an empath in the beginning. This burden becomes a gift with proper balance, and your gift no longer simply becomes tolerable or intolerable. It becomes who you are, and with proper discipline, can change your life… enabling to heal yourself and others.

In my personal opinion, when it comes to self-help or working with energy… Become educated through Audio Books and Videos, can have a much stronger effect. The energy of the speaker is present, and it gives a more personal feeling, allowing comfort and the capability to relate and understand.
This does not mean to throw out all your books. I have many books that have changed my life, but to listen to someone, see someone, or talk to someone in person, if much more effective.
