A Year in the Life of an Empath From Awakening to Spiritual Healer
Book Cover & Preview Text
My first thought was, How can I get rid of this ability? Yet the next day I came to realize that giving up all these traits or abilities would be the same as walking around completely blind and defenceless, because for me that's exactly what it would feel like. I would no longer know when people were lying to me. I may not have known it at the time but I had relied on these gifts since I was born. They were a part of me, in the same way my limbs are a part of me. These gifts had protected me, and saved me from untold pain, which when I think back makes me shudder at the possibilities.
So once I reached that conclusion I knew I needed to learn what it meant to be an empath. Thank goodness for the internet! Everything I wanted to know was right at my fingertips. One article led to another and then another. Each topic generated more questions and another word to look up. I soon learned there was more than one type of empath. It seemed I was an 'Emotional Empath.' I also discovered that empaths are natural healers, which means an emotional empath can heal others emotionally. You cannot learn to be an empath; you’re born that way.
Waking Up an Empath: A Year in the Life of an Empath from Awakening to Spiritual Healer is the honest, often comical year in the life story of Kimberly Wuirch. Having been labeled as sensitive throughout her life, even by her mother, Kimberly finally finds out the reason why her emotions and moods are often heightened. She discovers that she is an empath.
This book is based on one year of Kimberly’s life—from the shock of finding out she was an empath and learning what that meant, to the journey through spiritual awakening, and finally to becoming a healer, psychic, and medium.
Her story is relatable to many people who are too afraid to let the world know of their abilities or who are only just discovering who they really are.
Kimberly wrote this book to help other empaths realize that their thoughts, feelings, and sudden mood swings are all a normal part of being an empath and how difficult it is for those on the outside to fully understand what life is like for an empath. In the pages of this book, Kimberly is like the good and knowledgeable friend whom empaths can confide in when it comes to their own spiritual awakening and the fears and challenges that brings up.
There are not only words on the pages of this book. There is also love and compassion for a journey Kimberly knows all too well.
