Most likely you have heard about “Empaths” lately. Empaths are people who are highly sensitive towards other people’s emotions and energies they are sending out. Empaths often have the special gift of observation and connection. However, not many are aware that they are highly intuitive. All they are aware of are the consequences: feeling exhausted for no reason, other’s draining your energy, feeling overwhelmed and frustrated on a regular basis, often feeling anxious, even depressed. Being an Empath in today’s world is no easy task because we are being bombarded with toxins, other people’s stuff through personal interaction or all media channels.
Most Empath identify themselves as introverts, meaning, they can’t be present in big crowds for very long and prefer their couch behind locked doors.
Then, there are the warriors. Warrior-type personalities are often seen as always present, fearless, bold, courageous and strong. Many run on a mission with a very powerful message to change the world, literally. Warriors have a sense of justice and like to “fight” on the front with whoever is willing to follow their lead. They can often be experienced as forceful, potentially even less compassionate.

But when you know you have both inside of you, you know you are called for something life-changing and amazing.
Here are four of, what I believe, the most significant traits that identify an Empath-Warrior. Obviously the journey of discovering your Empath-Warrior goes much deeper but this will help you to develop a better understanding.
1. You can be caught day-dreaming often
As an Empath-Warrior you are courageous and you possess a unique strength, as for example the gift of prophecy, feeling deeply with others, being a visionary. But because of your need to protect yourself, you feel safer dreaming about your heroic speeches, saving other people’s lives and standing up to be the voice to those who can’t be a voice for themselves. Your dreams often feel very real and not just like a dream at all. Yet, when you wake up, you are sitting in a place that helps you to feel safe, cuddled up with your pet or a blanket and a book.
