Find Out Why Empaths Have Stomach And Digestive Issues


EmpathsThose who are natural empaths tend to experience issues with their stomachs and digestive symptoms more than those who do not have strong empathic feelings. If you experience frequent physical challenges in your stomach and or digestive system, then you too may be an empath.

Empaths are individuals who are highly sensitive to the people and the energy in their environments. Typically an empath “feels” their surroundings through their solar plexus chakra. It's as if their stomach area is a sponge, soaking up the feelings and thoughts of the people around them. There is no filter for them as they absorb other people's worries, fears and anxieties. While those who spend a good amount of time around empaths may feel better, the empath typically feels exhausted, stressed and overwhelmed. Over time they may experience the physical symptoms of an out of whack solar plexus.

Physical Symptoms

  • Stomach aches
  • Gas
  • Nausea
  • Cramping
  • Difficulties with elimination
  • Ulcers

What is an empath to do? To begin with, it is always helpful to be aware of your environment. If you find yourself in a toxic environment it's imperative that you switch gears and do what is necessary to keep the influences of others at a healthy distance.

What To Do

  • Change the subject
  • Leave the room or dwelling
  • Cover your solar plexus with your hands and or an object
  • Visualize yourself in a bubble of white light
  • Emotionally disengage and not allow your emotions to be triggered

If you have been experiencing a few of these physical symptoms, it could be that you are an empath and it would be best for you to create healthier boundaries with others to help keep your mind, body and spirit in tip top shape.

  1. Feeling all the hate and ignorance is enough to make anyone sick to their stomach.

  2. am a empath and I got stomach troubles., so I have learned to stay away from bad people

  3. I’ve realized I’m an Empath for other species and I’m feeling everything they feel when humans commit unspeakable atrocities to them. It’s aweful. 🙁

    Bring in the light A Simple exercise that you can do to energize yourself or help solve a problem is to imagine surrounding yourself with light. This is especially good to do on breaks from work or anywhere that you don’t want to call attention to yourself. Close your eyes briefly (or rest your closed eyes on the palms of your hands). Imagine a great shower of light bathing over you, enveloping you in radiance. Bask in the inner sunbath. Feel the warmth and brilliance of the light. Imagine the room you are sitting in to be flooded with this light. Take a few minutes to intensify the image. Experiment a few times a day for a week and see if you notice any changes in yourself or those around you. They’re getting the light and energy, too, whether they know it or not – James Redfield

  5. Sanaa it’s not me overreacting

    Because of religion most likely. Control programs are in opposition to life.

  9. A nice visual suggested by Nora Herold is to start running your energy like you’re a leaf blower, instead of a vacuum cleaner (sucking in other people’s energies that leave you feeling overwhelmed). Tend to yourself first, then be of service to others. 🙂

  13. I’ve noticed alot lately that Conscious Life News is taking issues relating to exposing what is wrong with the world such as Monsanto Roundup wrecking our stomachs and redirecting the issues. No it isn’t Glyphosate. “You’re just an empath.” Puts the seed in the cultural mind to misdirect.

  14. I’ve always wondered if my chronic migraines were associated with being an empath.

  16. feels a little like people are blaming too much on being an empath these days, way to go world for turning yet another positive characteristic into a negative one. just sort out your issues, so dont have to blame it on anything 🙂

    My sister is currently in the ICU in a coma after several brain surgeries. Since I saw her I have been violently ill, literally not able to keep food down. My stomach has been tightened and in so much pain. I found out she has had digestive issues and have had other situations where I am crying other people’s tears or have been told I am taking away my friends pain. Is it possible that my nausea and vomiting was me taking away my sisters pain? It’s been days and I’m still feeling the pain I felt when I was in the hospital with her and I never get ill.
