The Empath Series: 5 Helpful Empath Books and Resources

Welcome back to another installment of the Empath Series! Last month I talked about the different ways to maintain your energetic field which included earthing, flushing, and grounding. This month is the month a lot of folks have been waiting for because this article is the empath’s guide to the best empath books and resources from beginner to adept.

Where Does an Empath Turn for Resources?

You may be adept at knowing where to find others like yourself as well as resources to help you function in every-day life and society. But, if you’re here, odds are you’re still searching for information. It can be completely overwhelming and ridiculously confusing trying to find solid information for empaths. Nowadays everywhere you turn it seems like everyone is an expert on empathic nature. I am no expert, but I do know a few people, places and books that I as an empath would be lost without. These resources literally saved my life and my sanity.

My TOP 5 Empath Books and Resources

Without further ado, here’s a list of my top empath books and resources for those on the clear feeling spectrum that will help you maintain your sanity, form new friendships, and hone your empathic senses.

1. Empathzone

Empathzone was really the first place I learned that there were other people in the world like me. The website provides education and a social space for empaths to learn about, and explore, their spiritual gifts. It’s been around for over a decade and is loaded with great information, discussion boards, live chat, and even games to play using your newly-revealed sensitivities. The website is owned by Sandra Martinez who’s written several books on empathy and are offered for free at Empathzone.

2. Lonerwolf

Lonerwolf is a website run by Aletheia Luna and Mateo Sol, a partnership of twin flames. While I don’t always agree 100% with their content because I’m not of the new age belief system, I resonate with their empath advice. They have several quizzes you can take, a checklist of signs to alert you to your empathic nature and talk about empathy in general. They also offer a week long empath course, as well as an e-book!

3. Elise Lebeau, Ph.D. –

Elise Lebeau, aka The Left Brain Intuitive, is a professional empath. Her website is full of goodies from further resources, links to Facebook groups, empath books, readings, a blog and more! Elise offers a free Empath Survival Training course that covers different aspects of socialization for the empath, including crowd and relationship navigation. Elise wrote her thesis on Empath Experience which earned her a Ph.D. in Metaphysics from the American Institute of Holistic Theology.

4. Empath Basics by Sandra Martinez, MS

Empath Basics is the first empath book I ever read, and it’s by far my most highly recommended text for anyone who believes they’re an empath. This empath book is downloadable on both Amazon and Empathzone for free! This guide goes through definitions, grounding, flushing, chakras, crystals, and even has its own resource section with links! Sandra has a Master’s Degree in Physics and comes to the subject of empaths, not only as an empath herself, but also through the lens of physics. Science will one day catch up to known spiritual truths, and it’s awesome to see people in the scientific community backing up what so many tell us can’t be proven.

5. Awakened Empath by Luna & Sol

On their blog they offer an empath e-book titled Awakened Empath that is chock full of goodness for the beginner and seasoned empaths. It explores boundary setting, how to handle narcissists, self-love practices, and dives deep into parenting empathic children. Luna and Sol’s information is tinted with new age philosophy. If you’re not into new age belief systems, that’s ok, the information is just as valuable without sticking to it by the letter.

Wrapping It Up…

Thank you so much for reading and join me next month as we close out 2019 with the last installment of the Empath Series, Growing Up Empath. Next month’s article will cover empathy and children, from what makes them different to how to help them grow in a healthy environment that nurtures their empathic sensitivities.
