Human beings have five senses. It’s how we function in the world. But some people are born with six senses, an ability to perceive information, sensations, or emotions that don’t come from the usual five senses. These people are called empaths, and they receive signals or information they don’t see, hear, taste, smell, or touch.
In Empath is Not a Four-Letter Word, author Sandy Westerman explores some of the sixth senses, or the alternate ways people may experience things. In her self-help book for empaths and other sensitive individuals, she shares personal stories of her awakening and lessons learned. She tells about her experience as a sensitive teen, psychiatric nurse, and self trained medium.
As a graduate of the Silva Method and as a certified Eden Energy Medicine practitioner and teacher, she offers easy, practical, meditative and energy coping techniques. Westerman helps empaths learn how to manage their unique abilities, giving specific advice and strategies to transform their special gifts into unique superpowers.
