Are you a perfectionist?   Maybe you consider yourself a high-achiever, a results-driven person, and someone who knows how to hold it all together perfectly. But doesn’t this get stressful for you?   Needing to keep up appearances or draining acts to portray a certain image to others?   Many empaths, highly-sensitive people (HSPs), women, and of course...empath women and sensitive women struggle with perfectionism on a daily basis.   What was once seen as an admirable character trait to have has now turned into a draining act that many of us can’t keep up anymore.   If you’ve ever struggled with perfectionism, you know how tough it can feel to be hyper-critical of ourselves, behavior, appearance, and actions.   If you’ve ever wondered if you might be a perfectionist, stay tuned for this episode where I will share 3 signs that might make you a perfectionist.   If you’re an empath who is struggling with self-limiting beliefs + behavior like this, or you’re having trouble with things like setting healthy boundaries or managing the energetic drain and overwhelm that so often comes with being an empath, then…   Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   Doors for enrollment close on September 12th, 2021.   I have a couple of spots left!   This is the last opportunity to work with me in The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program for the year.   Doors for enrollment will open back up again in 2022.   I wouldn’t wait!

Alone time is necessary for us to recharge.   This is especially true for empaths, introverts, and highly-sensitive people (HSPs).   Having a nervous system that is highly attuned and sensitive to the emotions and energy of the people around them isn’t always a walk in the park.   When we don’t get enough alone time, we can find ourselves feeling frazzled, exhausted, overwhelmed, and about ready to throw in the towel.   Side note: If you’re an extrovert or you’re not an empath or sensitive, I still invite you to stick around because we as humans need alone time in general.   Alone time is critical for our individuality, personal sovereignty, and mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. We don’t always think about the impact that spending time with others all of the time does to us and our nervous systems.   So join me on this episode, where I’ll share 3 benefits of spending alone time and how it improves your relationship with yourself.   Getting alone time is essential for the empath who is tired of feeling energetically depleted and overwhelmed with the busy lives that we live.   If you’re an empath who is looking for guidance on managing energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships…   Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   *My summer sale is now over.

Welcome back to the show!   Last time, we went over 4 signs that you might have trust issues.   Today we’re going to talk about why your trust issues are holding you back in your relationships.   If you’ve struggled with trust issues before and you’re wondering how it’s truly impacting the health of your relationships, then stick around for this episode.   And hey! You might be someone who has struggled with trust issues before. Or maybe you’ve been on the receiving end of a relationship with someone with trust issues.   Either way, it’s not easy.   But the good news is, if you do want to rebuild trust within yourself and your relationships...it is possible.   But what most people miss is that we have to start by working on ourselves, first.   I know this sounds counterintuitive, but if you’re struggling with a fear of intimacy, a lack of trusting others, insecurity, and deeply rooted personal issues (ex. fear of abandonment), it’s vital to start working on yourself first.   What does this look like?   Maybe you take the multidisciplinary approach and work with a therapist to address the mental health aspect of things.   And maybe you work with a life coach on the personal development and self-awareness/self-discovery piece.   When you begin to learn, understand, and accept yourself for who you truly are (quirks and all) and what you truly need, you begin to equip yourself with the tools to help others both understand and respect you and your needs as well.   If you’re an empath who is looking to understand your Empath nature and needs, learn more about your personality type, set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…   Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   *My summer sale is now over.

Trust is something that most of us desire within our relationships.   But it’s something that’s not always present within the relationships that we have in today’s world.   Whether that’s with a romantic partner, loved one, co-worker, or friend...many of us determine which relationships we want to engage in, based on who we feel we can trust.   But if you’ve been hurt in the past, it can be  really tough to trust others.   Especially, if you’re an Empath.   Having the specific challenges that come with being an empath (such as, absorbing the energy and emotions of those around us, having a fear of conflict, finding it hard to trust others when your intuition tells you otherwise), all makes it that much harder to trust people.   As empaths and sensitives, we can sense what can’t be seen with the eyes. We typically get a good read on whether we can trust a person. But sometimes the water gets muddy and it’s hard to determine who we can and cannot trust.   Or maybe we’ve struggled with having people cross our boundaries in the past, so we’ve learned to put our walls up and we’re hesitant to let people in.   But when our guard is up, sometimes we don’t let the good things and the right people in. We miss out on opportunities that are actually empowering, soul-nourishing, and a good match for us.   If you’ve ever dubbed yourself as the, “I don’t trust people” person, I want you to know that trust can be developed and it’s necessary to build healthy, intimate, well-connected relationships.   Stick around for this podcast episode, where I’ll share 4 Common signs of trust issues.   If you’re feeling like you struggle with trust issues and you’re curious on how it’s holding you back in your relationships, look out for the next episode, where I’ll share some reasons why your trust issues are holding you back in your relationships.   If you’re an empath who is looking to understand your Empath nature and needs, set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…   Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   *Summer sale (at the time of this recording): 50% off of The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

Attention to all of my recovering people-pleasers out there.   Have you been wondering about what you can do to stop the cycle of people-pleasing?   In the previous episode, we talked about 7 signs that show you might be a people pleaser (if you haven’t heard that episode yet and you want to go back and listen to that first, it’s Season 5 Episode 14).   In this episode, we’re going to talk about how to stop people-pleasing while still being compassionate.   If you’ve ever struggled with people-pleasing and you’re wondering how to stop doing that while still staying true to your compassionate nature, then I’d love for you to stick around for this episode.   Let me know which of these new perspectives resonated with you the most! I'd love to continue the conversation on this topic.   P.S. If you’re ready to start making the inner changes necessary to stop people-pleasing and you’re an empath who is looking to set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…   Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   *Summer sale (at the time of this recording): 50% off of The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/

Is being a people pleaser all that bad?   I mean, isn’t it just being nice and agreeable?   Doesn’t it just allow you to get along with most everyone around you?   Or maybe it makes us feel generally liked?   And it probably makes you feel like you can avoid conflict as much as possible? Right?   Wrong.   Tough love coming at ya, my friend. Being a people pleaser is not what it seems.   According to heathline.com, “being a people pleaser goes beyond simple kindness and it involves editing or altering words or behaviors for the sake of another person’s feelings or reactions.”   The danger with people-pleasing is that you have to sacrifice parts of yourself to please or meet the needs of others.   When you people-please over a long period of time, it leads to burnout, exhaustion, resentment, and it really isn’t sustainable at all.   I mean, how long can we really keep this gig up?   How much longer are you going to give up your energy and time to please others?   How much longer are you going to betray yourself in order for others to “like you?”   If you’ve ever wondered if you might be a people pleaser, you won’t want to miss this podcast episode.   Stay-tuned for this episode where I’ll share 7 signs that you might be a people pleaser.   If you’re ready to start making the inner changes necessary to stop people-pleasing and you’re an empath who is looking to set healthy boundaries in your relationships, manage energetic and emotional overwhelm, and work through self-limiting beliefs…   Then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   *Summer sale (at the time of this recording): Over 40% off of The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   Additional links mentioned in the show:  1.

Empaths, empathy, and codependency. Have you ever wondered why these words always seem to come up in the same conversation?   Let’s make more sense of this by defining these terms first:   Empathy is the ability to share and understand the feelings of another   An empath is someone with a nervous system who is highly-attuned to the emotions and energy of others. This is someone who can literally feel and take on the emotions and energy of others (ex. I feel for you vs. I feel what you’re feeling).   Codependency is any relationship in which two people become so invested in each other that they can’t function independently anymore. Your mood, happiness, and identity are defined by the other person.   As children, empaths and HSPs tend to tune in to their parents' energy and try to adjust their own to suit their caregivers needs.   We think that our parents/caregivers happiness and wellness depends on how well we’re behaving, or how much we please them, so we start to chameleon into whatever we think will make them happy.   We end up believing that we’re responsible for their happiness and wellbeing.   So as we grow up, we tend to bring this into our adult relationships. And we wonder why we end up in codependent relationships as empaths (it all starts with things that we learned in our childhood)?   This could be things like having poor boundaries and being natural nurturers and being prone to over-giving.   We tend to absorb the energy and emotions of others around us (this makes sense why it would feel like our mood, happiness are defined by other people).   We just want to help others, but sometimes we can end up trying to “fix” everything when it’s not our job or journey to, it’s the other person’s job to do their own individual work.   We don’t want to see other people (esp. Loved ones) in pain and we have a natural instinct to want to shoulder that pain for others.   But we have to realize that we can’t take away the pain from others. It’s not our responsibility as much as it seems and feels like it is.   If you’ve ever questioned if you might be in a codependent relationship, stay tuned for this episode because I’m going to share the 7 signs that you might be in a codependent relationship.   If you’re an empath who is ready to go all in right now with overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   *Right now, I’m offering a summer sale.

Many of us want and need different things in our relationships.   Some of us need a lot of space and independence.   And then some of us struggle with (I’m gonna say it straight up) clinginess and wanting to be with our partners all of the time.   There’s science behind this. It’s called attachment styles.   Attachment style refers to the way that we relate to others, behave, and respond emotionally in our relationships.   They are formed in our childhood and are based in response to the relationships we had with our earliest caregivers.   So why is this important for empaths and highly-sensitives to keep in mind when wanting to improve their relationships?   Well, we have a nervous system that is highly-attuned to the emotions and energy of others around us.   So when our partner is behaving in a way that we can’t understand and we start to feel emotionally overwhelmed, keeping the attachment styles in mind can help you to hold space, have deeper compassion for, and see a different perspective that your partner may be experiencing.   This information will help you understand your partner and their behavior better.   Because, as I always like to say...we are all wired very differently.   So if you’ve been trying to understand your partner and their behavior on a deeper level, stay tuned for this episode on the 4 attachment styles.   Listen in to learn which style you and your partner have.   If you’re an empath who is looking to build better boundaries in your relationships and to do the mindset work in order to develop a better sense of self-esteem, then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program!   This is my signature, 8-week, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who are interested in setting better boundaries in their relationships, managing their energetic overwhelm, and tackling their self-limiting beliefs.   *Summer sale (at the time of this recording): Over 40% off of The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

Are you in a relationship or partnership with someone? Have you ever been curious about what’s motivating them at an unconscious level? Have you ever wondered how they were wired internally?   One of my most recent podcast guests, Daniel Anear, said, “As we go through changes it can bring up the end of a relationship or it can be a catalyst to revitalize your relationships.”   We all have our own wounding and we have different attachment styles.   In our childhood, we learn how to interact with people and we each bring our own beliefs, patterning, and conditioning into our relationships when we’re adults.   It’s not always easy, but these things can be worked through with understanding, compassion, and respect for each other's unique differences and needs.   Join us in this insightful podcast interview with Daniel Anear, who is a relationship and marriage counselor, a father and husband, transformation coach, INFJ, and an Enneagram 1. This episode is all about relationships and how you can make them go more successfully.   We talk all about personality types (the Enneagram and Myers-Briggs) and how to use them as a tool in your relationships. We also cover how to create a mutually-satisfying relationship and go over the signs that a relationship might be ending or over.   Can’t wait to hear what you think of the episode!   You can connect with Dan in the following ways: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/danielrelationshipcounselling/ Website: https://danielanear.com/ Podcast: https://danielanear.com/podcast   If you’re an empath who is looking to improve your relationships through understanding your inner wiring on a deeper level through a tool like personality types, then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   This is my signature, private, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who are interested in setting better boundaries in their relationships, managing their energetic overwhelm, and tackling their self-limiting beliefs.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

One of the most common relationship problems is a lack of intimacy.   Now, intimacy in relationships isn’t only about sex.   It goes beyond just the physical.   It’s about the feeling of closeness and connection on a mental, emotional, spiritual level as well.   And when you feel like your partner truly doesn’t get you on a deeper level, intimacy can be tough.   Maybe they just don’t get the way that you’re wired on the inside. Maybe they don’t have a clue about the inner workings of your soul.   And it feels soul-sucking to feel misunderstood and not seen in your relationship with the person that’s supposed to be one of the closest people to you.   Well, what if I told you that there was a way to bring back the intimacy in your romantic partnerships on a mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical level?   Stay-tuned for this juicy podcast episode on the 4 ways that you can use personality types to build more intimacy in your romantic relationships.   *If you don’t know your personality type or you need a refresher, here’s a link to free personality type assessment: ​​ https://personalityhacker.com/genius-personality-test/   If you’re looking to go deeper (beyond the introvert vs extrovert stuff) + you’re ready to dive into learning your cognitive functions (our brains inner wiring based on our type) and you’re an empath who is looking to improve your relationships through understanding your inner wiring on a deeper level through a tool like personality types, then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.I   This is my signature, 8-week, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who are interested in setting better boundaries in their relationships, managing their energetic overwhelm, and tackling their self-limiting beliefs.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

Have you ever felt criticized by a partner, co-worker, boss, a friend, or family member before?   What did that feel like? Did you ever feel like shutting down? Or maybe you felt defensive? Or maybe you’ve felt the need to fight back?   Experiencing conflict. This is never easy, for anyone.   But if you’re an empath, you know how incredibly tough it can feel to experience conflict on an emotional and energetic level.   Having a nervous system that is highly sensitive and perceptive to the emotions and energy of others can feel rough and shaken up while experiencing tough situations or people.   Maybe when you and your partner get into an argument with your partner, you notice that they always need to be right.   Or maybe when you’re experiencing a moment of tension with a friend, family member, or co-worker, you notice that they’re always focused on controlling the conversation.   Then after we find ourselves royally frustrated, the following thoughts tend to pop up for us:   “Why do they always act this way?”   “Why can’t we see eye to eye?”   “Why is this person always fixated on x, y, and z?”   Or “Maybe we’re just incompatible.”   But, what if I told you that there was a way to help you navigate conflict with more understanding and compassion for yourself and others?   Stay tuned for this episode that will serve up a fresh perspective on how to use personality types as a tool to improve your relationships by helping you navigate conflict with your loved ones.   *Link to free personality type assessment: ​​  https://personalityhacker.com/genius-personality-test/   If you’re an empath who is looking to improve your relationships through understanding your inner wiring on a deeper level through a tool like personality types, then I’d love to invite you to join The Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   This is my signature, private, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who are interested in setting boundaries in their relationships, managing energetic overwhelm, and releasing self-limiting beliefs.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

Being assertive is something that we hear conflicting information about.   On one hand, we’ve been told that it’s a strength to be assertive in life. That it’s a necessary thing to be able to accomplish important things in our lives.   But on the other hand, we also get judged for being assertive.   I think the confusion comes up when we aren’t clear on the definition of assertiveness.   Assertiveness is the ability to stand up for the needs and rights of yourself and others, without the need to be forceful or aggressive.   It’s a core communication skill.   It is practicing the art of being direct while asking for what you want and need, in a calm and objective manner.   You can still be kind and respectful while asserting yourself. You can still be assertive while being respectful of other people’s thoughts, feelings, beliefs.   It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Communicating with assertiveness is direct and respectful.   But, if you’re an empath, being assertive might feel scary, uncomfortable, and difficult.   We’re highly empathetic and tuned-in to the energy and emotions of others around us. It can be uncomfortable to be exposed to and even absorb other people’s reactions to us being assertive.   At the end of the day, we just want things to be in harmony and we just want to co-exist in peace with the people around us.   So why would we even bother with being assertive.   Well, stay tuned for this valuable episode on the three reasons why practicing the art of assertiveness is necessary for an empath.   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

When something bad happens or when someone says something that we don’t like, we all have the ability to take things personally.   We get triggered. We get upset. And before you know it, we’re energetically thrown off.   And then we say things like, “What the heck?” “Why’d that person have to treat me that way?” or “What the heck is their problem?”   So, we grab our phones, put on our “why me” caps and vent to our friends, partners, or family members, and before you know it, one of them tells you:   “Aww, don’t worry about it”   or   “It’ll be fine, just forget about it”   or   “Let it go.”   Or the, “I’m sure they didn’t mean to say it like that.”   And just like that, we’re re-triggered all over again. Order up! You’ve just gotten another serving of taking shit personally.   People typically say these statements to make us feel better, but it only makes us feel way worse. And they’re missing the point.   But have you ever wondered why we take things so personally?   Let’s talk about the psychology behind this.   Join me for this insightful podcast episode where I share 5 reasons why we take things so personally.   Wondering what you can do to practice the art of not taking things so personally?   Be kinder to yourself, have compassion for yourself as a whole, and give yourself grace to make mistakes (and learn from trial and error).   One way to develop more self-connection and self-compassion is to get to know yourself better on a deeper level. On a level of inner wiring.   If you’re an empath who is interested in learning about your empath nature and your personality type, I’d love to invite you to join me in my Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

Have you ever had to let go of a friendship or relationship?   We all outgrow friendships, partners, and loved ones throughout our life.   But it can be hard not to take it personally. And honestly, it can feel heart-wrenching, confusing, and frustrating.   Maybe you’ve known these people since elementary, middle, or high school. Or maybe you’ve been tight with this person since your college days. Or shoot, maybe you’ve been in a romantic relationship with them for a while.   No matter what the situation looks like for you, it can be incredibly painful and heartbreaking to cut off a friend, family member, or loved one.   And it can be excruciating when you’re on the receiving end of a friendship or relationship break up as well.   But the good news is, you’re not alone.   Outgrowing our friends, family, and loved ones is something that naturally happens often as we grow up and age throughout life.   Our life paths change, our personal values become more solidified, and we start to recognize our worth and what we know that we deserve in our relationships.   Which can be as simple as being loved, respected, and understood.   Mainstream media and society has taught us that we’re “supposed to” have BFFs (best friends forever), or that we have to stay in romantic relationships til death due us part, and stick it through with toxic family relationships in the name of loyalty and commitment.   This narrative is not helpful. Life is dynamic and ever changing, and we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment when we expect a person to act or behave a certain way, for a lifetime.   In the online space, we hear a lot of the stereotypical “don’t be afraid to cut them off” statements when it comes to toxic relationships.   But what about the more nuanced side of letting go of relationships?   I mean, you can also be incompatible without it being a “toxic relationship.” And it can still be time for you to move on.   People can only meet you at the level in which they’ve met themselves.   Stay-tuned for this podcast episode on the topic of outgrowing relationships, normalizing the emotional process of letting go, and seeing the upside in all of it.   If setting boundaries or making mindset shifts is something that you’ve struggled with during challenging situations like these, I’d love to help!   These are all things that I cover more deeply in my Empath Empowerment Coaching Program, my private 1:1 coaching program to help empower empaths through learning about and harnessing their gift of deep feeling and sensitivity.   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

We live in a society where effort, ambition, drive, and constant “doing” is rewarded.   And when we do all of the things to keep up with the busy world, we end up exhausted, overwhelmed, depleted, and burnt out.   As humans in general, we weren’t meant to operate at machine-like hyperspeed. We weren’t meant to live our lives on overdrive.   And if you’re an empath, highly-sensitive person, introvert this probably hits harder on your nervous system.   So, what do we do to manage our well being and energy reserves in a seemingly chaotic and disruptive world?   Self-care.   Ok. Before you start rolling your eyes at me thinking this is another blanket call to action on self-care, give me just a little more of your time to offer you a different perspective on self-care and not only it’s benefits, but it’s necessity in your life.   Still skeptical? Let’s dive even deeper.   Join me for this episode on self-care, where I clear up 3 common self-care myths, share the benefits of having a self-care practice, and give you actionable self-care tips and ideas to help you get started on your self-care journey today.   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Ready to start your own podcast?

If you've ever felt like you were going a little bit crazy, have you ever considered that you might just be emotionally overwhelmed?   Being an empath is pretty neat. We’re highly-intuitive and we have the gift of high-sensitivity.   We have the ability to sense and feel the emotions of others very well. We’re just that tuned in.   But this can also be challenging for us because being this tuned in can be draining and we can feel emotionally overwhelmed.   I mean, have you ever had an interaction with someone who was having a rough day? How did you feel afterwards? Irritated, grumpy, or maybe upset too? And then soon enough, the rest of your day feels like it’s off kilter.   It’s rough being caught in the riptide of complex emotions from both others and ourselves.   But what is emotional overwhelm anyway? It is a state that we enter when the weight and intensity of the emotions we’re feeling feel like too much for us to handle or process.   So what do you think, have you ever felt emotionally overwhelmed before?   Join Naomi for this brand new podcast episode, where she shares the five telltale signs of emotional overwhelm in empaths.    Can't wait to see you on the inside!    *If you’ve been feeling feelings of hopelessness, despair, or distress and you’re looking for help: The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available at 1-800-273-8255.   The Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   Access the Better Boundaries Quiz using the link below: https://www.tryinteract.com/share/quiz/6046ddffc97a130017e1eb63

One of the most beautiful questions to ask anyone in pain is, “What rises for you when _____ (ex. Someone mistreats you, or leaves you feeling abandoned or unseen)?”. This gives us  room to observe what rises within us without wanting to fix or change it.   It allows us to notice that we’re  in pain. To see what’s rising in our bodies. And it gives us the awareness that we do have choices. It’s about remembering that we always have a choice. It’s about cultivating it and not demanding that the pain leaves immediately. It’s a journey.   Experiencing trauma and grief is no walk in the park. None of this is easy. Reliving the prior pain of our traumatic experiences, allowing ourselves to be visibly vulnerable, befriending the inner critic, or attempting to heal the wounded spaces within us as we try to move on throughout our lives.   If you’ve been doing a lot of self-healing and releasing of old trauma, then this is the perfect podcast episode for you.   Grief can teach us many meaningful things. Although it can be incredibly painful, there’s an upside to allowing yourself to experience feeling the fullness of what it is to be human. My most recent podcast guest, Clare O’Sullivan said, “It’s not a pain free life, but a broader spectrum of life.”   “It’s about having patience at the threshold of pain, understanding the longing, and then comes the inspiration on how to continue to build your life in this moment.”   Things like depression, anxiety, and PTSD don’t need to impede us. They can simply just invite us to get closer to the truth of what life is like for us.   Cultivating compassion is a lifetime’s work. You have needs and it’s ok to long for harmony, beauty, and peace.   If you’re looking to make today more livable and foster more moments of connection in your life, then tune-in to this episode!   Remember. You matter. Give yourself space to fully inhabit and arrive home to yourself.   Clare O'Sullivan is a Resensitisation Through Compassion Teacher & Coach, who offers one-to-one coaching, online classes, and MBTI profiling.   She offers a compassionately held non-judgemental space which supports you to lovingly mediate and befriend your inner experience. To work with compassionate tools to navigate all that rises in your nervous system. A place where the experiences we describe as anxiety, depression and hyper-vigilance are approached not as blocks but as a communication from and within you, letting you know what you need and are longing for, and to identify what would make life wonderful for you.   You can connect with Clare at: www.senseoflife.co.uk   *If you’re experiencing domestic violence, The National Domestic Violence Hotline is available 24/7 at 1-800-799-7233.   *If you’re an Empath, who is looking for guidance in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Want to start your own podcast?

Have you ever had an experience with a narcissist?    Maybe you’ve had to deal with one at work, with your family, in a friendship, or maybe even a romantic partnership?   No matter the case, it’s never an easy type of relationship to manage.   And many empaths feel like they’ll always be victims of narcissists.   Now, I’m not a licensed mental health professional and if you’re dealing with someone who is narcissistic or has a NPD diagnosis and you need help, please take a look at what sorts of resources you have in your local area or online (there are people who are licensed and trained to help you with these situations.    I’m here to break it down + bust a specific myth and self-limiting belief.

Is self-criticism holding you back?   Self-criticism is the act of criticizing one’s own faults or shortcomings.   It is when we typically experience negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves, specifically about our behaviors and/or personal attributes.   While many people have trouble with pointing out their own flaws, empaths can easily get caught up in excessive self-criticism.   We’re highly-sensitive and highly perceptive, therefore it can be tough not to get into our own heads about all of our shortcomings.   While having self-awareness is healthy and an important skill to have in personal development, in our careers, and in our relationships (as far as learning from our mistakes), we as empaths can take self-criticism a little overboard until it wears away at our self-confidence and self-esteem.   A lot of the time, this comes from negative experiences we had in our childhood with caregivers, parents, or authority figures.   Example: If you had a parent that was authoritarian-like (controlling, rigid, critical), then it could’ve had a negative impact on our perception of ourself and our worth.   But we’re not here today to point fingers or blame our parents. We’re just here to shine a light and dig a little deeper.   If you’ve ever struggled with excessive self-criticism before, then you won’t want to miss this brand new podcast episode where Naomi shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the 7 ways that excessive self-criticism is holding you back as an empath.   Tune-in and let us know what you think!   *Note: Excessive self-criticism creates inner misconceptions that are deeply rooted in self-limiting beliefs. And self-limiting beliefs live in the subconscious mind. Which is why NLP is a great tool to release them!   These types of limiting beliefs are the key things that we work on releasing in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program, my signature 1:1 private coaching service for empaths.   If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *Want to start your own podcast?

Have you ever had a hard time speaking up for yourself? Has it ever been difficult to share your truth with others? Or have you ever wanted to share your opinion with someone but you were worried about upsetting them?   Empaths can feel EVERYTHING. We can feel other people’s emotional reaction. We can feel their uncomfortable emotions. And it can be tough not to absorb the emotional states of others, even when this isn’t our baggage to carry.   Many of us want to avoid conflict at all costs. Some of us are recovering people pleasers. And all of this makes it that much harder to speak up and speak our truth.   But, when we don’t speak our truth, it hampers us from being able to successfully advocate for and assert our needs, which can lead to energetic and emotional overwhelm and drain.   And while there are many factors at play for the reason behind why it’s difficult for some of us to speak our truth, one of the reasons is that many of us empaths don’t realize is that these patterns of behavior could be rooted in a deeper self-limiting belief, which is, ”It is too hard to speak my truth. It will only upset others.”   So,  what do you think? How hard is it for you to speak your truth as an empath? Did you struggle with it in the past? What advice would you have given yourself back then?   Join Naomi for a new podcast episode where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths and the fear of speaking their truth.   If you’re an empath and if you’ve ever struggled with speaking up and speaking your truth, then this is the perfect podcast episode for you because Naomi shares six reasons why it’s necessary for empaths to speak their truth.   Tune-in and let us know what you think of the episode!   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *Want to start your own podcast?

So, you’re an intuitive person. Maybe you’ve always been able to get a good read on people and you have a natural talent with reading between the lines.   Or maybe you have a knack for noticing patterns and connections between people, places, and experiences. And you naturally intuit information from your gut instincts.   But once we have the language around being an intuitive person, the next question that many of us start to ask is, “How can I strengthen my intuition?” “And how can I learn how to use my intuition as a tool to help me in my life?”   I’m here today to let you in on a little intuitive secret. Did you know that your emotions are one of the main ways that your intuition can work for you?   Our emotions are constantly communicating important messages to us.   You know what I’m talking about. I mean, have you ever felt a bad feeling about engaging in a certain experience or situation? Or maybe you’ve had a bad feeling in your gut about working with/dating/befriending a specific person.   Whatever your story is, I bet that on the flip side, you’ve also felt that strong feeling of inner knowing too. That feeling of deep trust and that strong inner knowing when something or someone is right for you.   Your energy and emotions don’t lie. Trust them.   Join Naomi for a brand new podcast episode where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on empaths and trusting the energy and emotions that they feel, especially when it comes to selecting a coach to add to your network of support.   Tune-in to learn how to use your emotions as an intuitive tool to vet out who you allow into your circle of support.   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *Want to start your own podcast?

Have you ever felt guilty about saying no or turning a request or invitation down?   It can be hard to say no if you’re an Empath. A lot of us are recovering people pleasers and we just want to help others and make them happy.   But then we fall into a cycle where we end up tolerating behavior that does not serve us.   We end up putting those who value us the least first.   Then we become resentful, drained, and overwhelmed for a number of reasons but the main one is that we end up helping others at the detriment of ourselves.   Saying no while feeling empowered can be a rough one for empaths.   What we don’t realize is that we most likely need better boundaries as an Empath.   Join Naomi for an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths, boundaries, and the things we feel guilty about when setting healthy boundaries in our lives.   You won’t want to miss this episode because she covers the 6 boundaries that you don’t have to feel bad for setting as an empath.   See you on the inside of the episode!   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *Want to start your own podcast?

What triggers you the most? Is it being micromanaged? Or maybe it’s when people lack empathy or take advantage of the good-hearted? Maybe it’s having your feelings invalidated.   No matter what triggers you the most, I think that one thing that we can all agree on as human beings is that we all can get triggered at some point in our everyday lives.    And we definitely know when we’re triggered when we’re upset, pissed, sad, frustrated, angry, disappointed, or heartbroken. But are we always super clear on the reason WHY we’re triggered?   And would gaining more clarity on what triggers us on an individual, personal level be helpful in better managing the wave of strong and sometimes overwhelming emotions that come flooding in each time we’re triggered?   Let’s find out! Join Naomi for this helpful podcast episode where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths and triggers.    If triggers hit close to home for you, then you won’t want to miss out on this episode because she shares five common empath triggers and she offers up a fresh perspective on how we can view triggers in a different light (one that actually positions triggers as a tool for growth, rather than a burden that victimizes you).   Can’t wait to see you in the episode!    *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *Want to start your own podcast?

As empaths, it can be tough not to get caught up in thinking we need to get permission from others.   As children and even in adulthood, we’ve been conditioned by our caregivers, teachers, or other authority figures to seek the “okay” from them for just about everything.   Growing up, we had to ask permission to use the bathroom, or to eat, or before we spoke in class, before we could play outside, if we could see our friends, etc. We’ve been taught to seek counsel before making any decisions for ourselves. We’ve been trained not to trust ourselves, our intuition, or our gut instincts (even though we have those inner “I told you so” moments all of the time). We ask our partners or lovers if “this looks good” on us before we go out and show ourselves. And we’ve been taught to rely on what “makes sense” and “logic” over our inner knowing (the knowing from comes from your heart). All of this programming then starts to plant self-limiting beliefs within us and our subconscious mind.   We start to believe that having freedom in making our own decisions is a privilege and not a right.   Here’s your wake up call my fellow empath. THE ONLY PERSON YOU NEED PERMISSION FROM IS YOU.   Join Naomi for her audio replay of a livestream that she shared on the 10 things that Empaths don't need permission to do.   *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Want to start your own podcast?

Let’s clear up one huge misconception. NOBODY. IS. IN. CHARGE. OF YOU.   One more time for my fellow empaths sitting in the nosebleeds...NOBODY IS IN CHARGE OF YOU.   You are in charge of your life. Nobody is in charge of your emotional experience or how you respond either.   You are more powerful than you allow yourself to believe.   For us empaths, the real issue is when we give our power away to others.   Join Naomi on this podcast episode, where she shares an audio replay of a livestream that she did on the topic of empaths and emotional boundaries. She shares her story about how she used to get caught up in victim mentality while growing up (ex. why are others doing these cruel, disrespectful, unnecessary things to me?) and how she realized that she wasn’t yet skilled in knowing her emotional and energetic needs at that time.   If you've ever struggled with setting and maintaining healthy boundaries (while trying to keep the peace at all costs), then this is the perfect podcast episode for you.    Join Naomi as she dives deep into a conversation on the cycle of giving your emotional power away and how to take your emotional sovereignty back.    *The Angel Number Cheat Sheet link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/product/album/   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Empath type quiz link: https://www.tryinteract.com/share/quiz/5f77e5e6d23d0a0014fc5110     *Want to start your own podcast?

Are you intuitive, empathic, or highly-sensitive? Have you ever felt like you’re probably just imagining the insights that you intuit just because they can’t be proved with logic? Until we have the language around being an intuitive person, we tend to assume that we’re just crazy. And we internalize it. My latest podcast guest, Lauren Sapala said, “You’re not imagining it. This is real. What you have is the gift of intuition.” Join me for a special guest interview with Lauren, where we talk about being intuitive and creative mothers and digital entrepreneurs, experiencing the mom guilt that comes with making the time for your own creative expression, and tempering our expectations around making time for our creative pursuits and passions. If you’re an INFJ, INFP, HSP, or Empath, then this is just the episode for you. Lauren and I dive deep into the topic of identity and the importance of not letting personality types put you in a box. You’ll get a closer look at the nuanced differences of personality type (ex. Being an introvert but also being an empath) and we also dispel some empath myths and misconceptions (yep, being an empathic isn’t just an enhanced sympathy response). We also cover common empath experiences, stereotypes, self-acceptance, and the necessity of communicating your boundaries Tune-in to the episode to join in on the conversation! Lauren Sapala is the author of The INFJ Writer, Firefly Magic: Heart Powered Marketing for Highly Sensitive Writers, and The INFJ Revolution, as well as The West Coast Trilogy, an autobiographical fiction series. She is also a writing coach for writers of the INFJ and INFP personality type and blogs about writing, creativity and personality theory at laurensapala.com. When she’s not writing about INFJs and INFPs, she spends her time writing transgressive fiction.

Have you ever felt paralyzed by having to meet high expectations for yourself? If you’re a writer (current or aspiring), a creative, or intuitive person, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.    It’s that moment when you get that creative spark. That intuitive download of inspiration. So many ideas! So many possibilities. But then anxiety sets in and you start to feel that resistance. Before you know it, you’re sitting in front of a blank page and you’re unable to get yourself to write anything at all.     My dear friend and recent podcast guest, Peg Cheng, said, “When you feel that resistance, that's the old voice.” “Don’t stop yourself before you start.”   Join me for this insightful interview with Peg, where she shares her story on how she became a writer (and how she got wounded when she decided to go full-time). You’ll hear about how Peg went through the belly of the whale and how her high expectations for her achievement had her paralyzed and left her unable to write for years (which is ultimately how she created her class, Fear in Writing.)  If you’re a writer or a creative of any sort, then it’s important to know that a lot of writers go through the very same struggle in their journeys as well. And what’s helpful is when you both meet other writers who have gone through the same journey and hear their stories of how they experienced, processed, triumphed, overcame the obstacles that are very unique to creatives and writers.    If you’ve ever felt like taking a leap of faith, following your hunches, and trusting your gut, you’re going to want to save this episode. Peg also shares how she followed and trusted her intuition to close out and end her career coaching practice to transition into the next phase of her life.    Peg Cheng is the author of Rebel Millionaire, a guide for how to retire as a millionaire even if you make a modest income, and The Contenders, a novel about whether enemies can become friends. She is also the CEO of Plaid Frog Press, a publishing company that she runs with her husband Marcus Donner.    When she's not at her desk, Peg loves teaching workshops, digging in the garden, looking for wildlife, studying tarot, and looking for awe in everyday life.    In previous lives, she worked in 35 jobs including fabric cutter, public toilet researcher, career counselor, and prelaw adviser. Born in Southern California to Taiwanese parents, Peg currently lives in Seattle, Washington.   You can connect with Peg at: https://www.pegcheng.com/   *If you’re an Empath who is interested in overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to enroll in The Empowered Empath Coaching Program Course!   For more details on the course, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Empath type quiz link: https://www.tryinteract.com/share/quiz/5f77e5e6d23d0a0014fc5110   *Want to start your own podcast?

Have you ever been called, “too sensitive?” Maybe you’re an empath or a highly-sensitive person (HSP), and this kind of phrase was always something that you always heard while growing up?   While we’re typically told that being sensitive is a weakness, I’m here today to show you why your sensitivity is actually a gift.    My latest podcast guest, Ritu Kaushal, said, “I’ve always felt like the odd one out. I really tried to fit myself in a box.

So, you’re a mompreneur with a purpose, right?   You’re a multi-dimensional mother who is interested in manifesting the life, business, or relationship of your dreams.   But what’s the secret to manifestation?    My most recent podcast guest and fellow mompreneur, Amanda Suga, shared this manifestation gem:   “The key to creating your reality is belief. Change your beliefs, change your reality.”   If you believe that the odds are stacked against you, that’s what you’re going to see in your life.    Amanda shares that there’s more to manifestation than just having a vision board, being positive, and acting as if.    Manifestation is also about taking action.   The law of attraction and the universe are always supporting you, but it’s not about just wishing on a lucky star and waiting for your manifestations to happen.    Your thoughts are powerful and focusing on what you want is imperative.   Your thoughts and beliefs are creating your feelings, your feelings are creating your actions, and your actions are creating your results or manifestations.    So, even if something feels difficult to believe, stay in possibility. It’s truly that powerful.   Tune-in to hear more manifestation tips from Amanda!    Amanda is a mindset and manifestation coach who is passionate about helping ambitious women manifest everything they want in life without the struggle and guilt. She is a certified life coach and NLP, Hypnosis and EFT Tapping practitioner.    After 5 years of her own successful manifestation journey, Amanda wanted to make a larger impact in the world through sharing her own perspective on the law of attraction creating her own framework and process for helping women transform their mindset to manifest their dream lives. Her signature program, Becoming Bold is now enrolling for women who are ready for their next level of life.

Have you ever felt like you were going crazy? While there could be many reasons for that, have you ever considered that you could be going through a kundalini awakening? On this episode, I had my dear friend, Stephanie Jameson, an intuitive empath, psychic medium, an INFJ, certified reiki master, and author of The Happy Empaths Workbook and The Happy Empath’s Little Book of Affirmations, share a ton of gems in the category of mindset, self-love, the healing journey, and spirituality.

We talked about everything from astrological updates, to the upcoming retrogrades and eclipses for the 2021 year. This is the perfect episode as we get ready for the Pluto retrograde coming up in April, which has everything to do with death and rebirth, surrendering to the wisdom of your higher self, and allowing self- transformation to occur.

Has it ever been hard for you to accept yourself, quirks and all? What does radical self-acceptance mean to you as an Empath?    My most recent podcast guest and friend, Jas Hothi, said that for him, it all comes down to how you feel about yourself (and knowing that you are enough).    It’s about having the courage to keep being yourself (despite what others may think of you).    Join us on this episode if you’re curious to learn more about how to get more comfortable with showing your spiritual side (and claiming the space).    We cover everything from admitting that you’re an empath (no matter how hard it is) to sharing experiences about having people judge you when you start speaking your truth and start showing up in your authenticity.    We also talk about the importance of finding and being supported by a like-minded community. Which is perfect because he curates INF Club, a newsletter to help INFP & INFJ writers and creatives produce, share and make an income from their work.    He is fascinated by holistic wellbeing, loves to take the train, and enjoys listening to Avicii.    He is currently based in SW London, England and you can find him at www.jasraj.me.   If you’re an Empath or Highly-Sensitive Person looking for more 1:1 guidance on understanding your gifts, overcoming energetic overwhelm, releasing limiting beliefs, and setting healthy boundaries in your relationships, then I’d love to invite you to join me in my Empowered Empath Coaching Program!   For more details on how you can apply to work with me 1:1 for private coaching, please visit: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Want to start your own podcast?

Have you ever been told that you’re far less serious on the inside than you appear on the outside? That’s something that Anja, aka AS Renner, has experienced as an INFJ personality type. Anja is an INFJ writer, coach, and the author of the novel City of Lies. Under the pseudonym Sina Jasur, she has published several non-fiction books on Minimalism, Self-Publishing on Amazon and Nutrition. As a coach for intuitive writing, she supports creatives in finding their voice. The subscribers to her newsletter are currently receiving the free eBook "Intuitive Writing. My Seven Steps to a Finished Novel." She is also a rockin’ mother of three (no seriously, she used to sing in a punk band, it all started when she was a lead singer in an all girl band!). She is also an Empath, Highly-Sensitive Person, an Aries (sun), Gemini (moon), and Leo (rising) from a town in Eastern Germany. In this episode, she shares the lessons that her children have taught her, which is to let go and not put too much pressure on herself or the kids. She said that the most important thing is that her kids are happy as themselves and that the key thing is accepting that they’re different from her. This allows her to create more space to let her children have their own experiences and learn from them. We also got deep and talked about the INFJ personality type and all of it’s contrasts.. Between getting mistaken for being extraverts (because we’re more open with the people we trust and know well) or desiring deeper and meaningful conversations with other like-minded people (that’s right, no small talk!), we INFJs know just what it feels like to be a “walking contradiction.” Tune-in to learn more about how intuition shows up for the INFJ and how journaling can help you intuitively work through your struggles with problem solving and making decisions. If you consider yourself creative, this is the episode for you! You’ll learn how to use your intuition to ignite your writing (thanks gut instincts, ideas, and ah-ha moments!) We definitely talk about being empaths, going through gradual spiritual awakenings, seeking answers during hard times, seeing patterns across all religions, spiritual dreams, and common empath fears (ex. fear of being seen and being judged).

Join Naomi for an audio replay of her livestream on the topic of Empaths and the common frustration of feeling like you're being taken advantage of. Here's some reasons why we feel like we’re often being taken advantage of as empaths: We are natural over-givers in our relationships. We take on too much. Unequal energy exchanges (you’re the only one putting in effort and giving) Co-dependent relationships (watch some of my previous livestreams for more info on this) We neglect ourself and our own needs (we put self-care on layaway) This makes us feel overburdened, resentful, and overwhelmed 3 Steps Towards Ending the Cycle of  Being taken advantage of as empaths: Set and maintain healthy boundaries (catch up on my previous lives to hear me talk more about healthy boundaries) Take things off of your plate (there is ALWAYS something that you can slash off your list) Renegotiate any agreements/commitments that are stressing you out or that don’t feel in alignment with you Remedy those poor communication skills Be explicit enough in expressing needs Know your intentions clearly: How do I want to be treated? (With love, autonomy, respect) How do I want to feel? (Empowered, independently, confident, cherished, happy) What don’t I want to feel + experience? Anything out of alignment with this needs to be addressed or needs to go Always take note of how you physically and emotionally feel around people/situations Your body is like an instrument, constantly sending signals to you, giving your signs Check the energy that other people are projecting your way (and what you’re projecting their way) Decide to not experience what other people are experiencing (tell them what your energetic boundaries are) Release the need to save everyone, you just can’t Here's some actionable pointers for Empaths: Serve yourself first Honor your intentions Stay away from things not in alignment with those intentions you set If you are an empath who is looking for more one-on-one guidance, I’d love to invite you to join me in the Empath Empowerment Coaching Course.   Join me for this 8-week, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who want to understand their gifts, overcome energetic overwhelm, release limiting beliefs, and build better boundaries in their relationships.   *For more details on how to work with me, please visit this link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   *Want to start your own podcast?

Many empaths struggle with victim mentality. People struggling with victim mentality do typically see themselves as a victim. We don’t want to be there, but we do when we become consumed by our fear-based thoughts. Get ready for some tough love (in the most compassionate way). Let's go over some key signs of having a victim mentality: Poor me attitude Focused on what others are doing to you Difficulty taking responsibility for one’s own role in their disempowerment The perception that people are always against you Blaming others for not meeting our needs Constantly complaining or venting about life and how you can’t do anything to change your situation Many factors play into the reason why empaths struggle with victim mentality (ex. co-dependent relationships, past trauma, etc.), but discernment plays a huge role in whether we are operating in victim vs growth mentality as empaths.   Many of us empaths struggle with discernment. But what is discernment exactly? Discernment: The ability to judge well, distinguishing what is right/wrong for you. It’s the ability to determine the difference between what your truth is and what a lie is. When we grew up as empaths, we often found ourselves being taught to not trust our intuition by our caregivers or the adults around us. Maybe your insights got you in trouble and it led you to seek out validation from others and to be fearful of making decisions that felt good to you and your inner knowing.   We might’ve even ended up in a codependent relationship because we can’t trust our own feelings. This big hot mess of disempowerment probably skyrocketed us into fear and a victim mindset. Then we start to think: Will I ever be able to trust my gut? Why can’t I have a mutually satisfying relationship that allows me to feel freedom and autonomy as an individual who is capable of making their own decisions? Will I ever be able to speak my truth and stand strong in what I believe in based on my own judgement? Can I actually feel the fear and accomplish things anyway? Will I feel unfulfilled and disempowered forever? I’ve already tried so hard and it never works It’s crucial for empaths to validate themselves from within. You are worthy because you are. Not because of anything external you do or achieve. Not because of how proud you make your loved ones. Once you learn discernment, you’ll be able to trust in your own feelings and intuition more. And with this strong inner trust, you’ll be able to feel more empowered and you will start to trust your ability to achieve a lot more than you think you can. In NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), we like to use the formula for success. This refers to the idea that being at cause is greater than being in effect (results are greater than reasons). Empowerment means moving from being in effect to being at cause. If something isn’t working for you (in an area of life), it’s likely that you’re being at effect or something or something. The responsibility is always on you (harsh truth). You have to do the work for yourself. I’d love to invite you to join me in the Empath Empowerment Coaching Course. Join me for this 8-week, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who want to understand their gifts, overcome energetic overwhelm, release limiting beliefs, and build better boundaries in their relationships. *For more details on how to work with me, please visit this link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/   --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thatsdeep/support   *Want to start your own podcast?

Join Naomi for an audio replay of her livestream on the topic of empaths and self-worth. Many of us empaths have commitment issues. In our relationships, career, and with time and money. It can be hard for us to commit to something just for ourselves (especially because we ALWAYS think of others first). Somewhere along the journey, we started to believe that we were not worthy of investing in and pouring life back into ourselves. The following mindset blocks that pop up in our head are: I have no time to commit to myself when I’m taking care of everybody else I can’t afford to spend time or money on myself because I need to make sure everybody else is covered first I don’t believe I can actually get what I want (because I always get what’s left over after everybody else is served first/I just have bad luck) I already feel overwhelmed I need to check in with partner/husband/wife/parent/etc. before I can make decisions about committing to anyone else There are many factors that come into play that create our commitment issues (ex. Difficulty trusting others, past relationship trauma, etc.) But our self-worth plays a HUGE role! Let’s clear up some definitions around self-worth, because we see this term being used interchangeably with words like self-confidence, etc. (they’re related but different). Self-worth: A sense of one’s own value as a human being. Self-esteem: Confidence and satisfaction in oneself (how you feel about yourself overall). Self-confidence: Confidence in one’s powers and abilities. Self-love: Love of self, an appreciation of one’s own worth or virtue. Here’s how a lack of self- worth shows up in our relationships as empaths: Past trauma doesn’t allow you to fully trust your partner fully + you end up unconsciously/consciously self-sabotaging yourself + the relationship Over-giving, poor boundaries, saying yes too much, and taking too much on Self-sacrifice until the point of energy depletion Fear of conflict + people pleasing Fear of speaking your truth Fear of being rejected Trying to fit the mold (trying to chameleon ourselves) to our partner/family/loved ones, when we are in fact wired very differently So, if you’re an empath looking for 1:1 guidance with releasing limiting beliefs like these, then having an NLP Life coach could be a very useful tool for you to help you step back into your personal power as an empath! I’d love to invite you to join me in the Empath Empowerment Coaching Course. Join me for this 8-week, 1:1 coaching program for empaths who want to understand their gifts, overcome energetic overwhelm, release limiting beliefs, and build better boundaries in their relationships. *For more details on how to work with me, please visit this link: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thatsdeep/support   *Want to start your own podcast?

Join Naomi for her livestream audio replay on the topic of empaths and the fear of conflict. I share my story on how I used to be deathly afraid of conflict as an empath growing up + in my adulthood. I used to allow myself to be mistreated and taken advantage of (i.e., I was painfully shy, had a hard time speaking up, and let others walk all over me just so I wouldn’t upset the other person or start conflict in fear of being rejected or abandoned). Example: As a kid, I would discuss my ideas/insights with someone and they’d repeatedly take it and pass it off as their own because I didn’t typically share/speak up (and I wouldn’t say anything or confront the person/problem, then I would feel resentful).   These lessons continue to present themselves in adulthood (it’s normal for all of us). The same lessons will repeat themselves until we’ve finally learned them). So here's the uncomfortable part. Someone in the online coaching space started copying/duplicating my work, passing it off as their own, and trying to sell it (thanks repeated life lessons). First, I gave myself space to process my emotions (disappointment, frustration) because it showed me where my boundaries were, CLEARLY. It was hard to process, because this person actually received a session from me for the same service that they were trying to pass off as their own (I mean, down to using the exact name of my service + what it entails ya'll). Ouch. I was really hesitant to discuss this today because I was worried about hurting this person's feelings. And while I think people need to be held accountable, I also think cancel culture can be pretty messy and my intention is not to smother this person's light or harm them back. I know that they can do better and create their own work (they've got it in themselves, they are a powerful creator). Scratching your head in confusion there? I bet you're wondering, "Why are you fuming, Naomi?" Well, I still have compassion for her (yep, you know what I mean if you’re an empath). I know that the copying isn't anything personal, but that it has more to do with them and what they've got going on.   Like they say in the writing community, people “rob and duplicate” as a content creation strategy. But it doesn’t mean plagiarize or steal someone’s intellectual property (that’s a boundary violation for me). The lesson: It’s important to set and maintain boundaries, even when it’s uncomfortable to be in conflict with someone. It shows both others and yourself how you expect to be treated and what you will/will not tolerate. It’s also important to speak your truth so you don’t minimize your self-worth and allow people to treat you in just any old way. Sometimes is conflict petty and not worth bothering with when you’ve got other things to focus on? Yes. But be clear on what your boundaries are when you find yourself facing conflict. Stronger boundaries = stronger satisfaction in the way you expect to be treated in relationships (romantic, platonic, family). These types of misconceptions are deeply rooted in self-limiting beliefs. And self-limiting beliefs live in the subconscious mind. Which is why NLP is a great tool to release them. *For more details on how you can work with me 1:1 for private coaching, please visit this link: https://thatsdeepco.com/empowered-empath-coaching-course/ *Link to free empath type quiz: https://naomicourtneycoaching.com/empath-quiz/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thatsdeep/support   *Want to start your own podcast?

Join Naomi for a live audio replay of her livestream on the topic of empaths and the fear of being judged. So, there’s this buzz in the online space to “show up,” or “show up and be yourself.” It can be tough for empaths to do this both in their relationships and career. Here’s 5 common fears that empaths + highly-sensitives face on the topic of being judged: Fear of being seen Fear of being judged Fear of being unprepared for the unknown Fear of being taken advantage of, rejected, fooled, or lied to Fear of being persecuted for who we truly are This makes taking risks tough for empaths. Here’s the real reason why this comes up for empaths: These fears are all rooted in deep limiting beliefs. Beliefs about what we can/can’t be/do/have. As an empath growing up, sometimes showing up as our true, deeply sensitive selves got us criticized or judged to begin with (persecution wound - trained us to not feel safe while being seen) Imposter syndrome shows up bc we’ve allowed others dictate what success looks like (despite evidence of our past successes) We’re recovering people pleasers and don’t want to start conflict with anyone, even if that means hiding ourselves. We’re highly-sensitive and attuned to the energy and emotions of others (we can sense what others are feeling about us) Can be uncomfortable when you’re this tuned in to the emotions (we start to absorb the feelings of others + feel like their emotional exp. is our responsibility If you’re an empath going through an awakening (waking up in consciousness), this forces us to face our shadow self (the parts of us that aren’t so easy to look at) What proof of success do you have from your past that prove these fears wrong? (Because the subconscious mind needs proof.)   So, let's talk about the shadow self. This is everything that is unconscious, unexpressed, repressed, or maybe even denied. We all have a shadow self. Deep wounding (ex. childhood trauma) can come up during the healing process. Our fears/shadows are deeply rooted in limiting beliefs (ex. “I can’t be who I truly am, they’ll judge me” or “I can’t speak my truth because I’ll upset others.” Becoming aware of your shadow self helps you accept yourself more as a whole (so you don’t project wounding onto others). An old coach of mine once asked me, “What’s the worst that could happen?" Ok, so someone judges you. I mean, they’re probably already doing it, right? But are you still sitting here, living, breathing, and still carrying on with your life despite their judgements? Heck yes you are! So, if you’re an empath looking for 1:1 guidance with releasing limiting beliefs like these, having an NLP coach can help you reprogram your subconscious mind.

Join Naomi for an audio replay of her livestream on the topic of empaths and co-dependency. Empaths can often get caught up in codependent relationships: Co-dependency Defined: An emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship These relationships are often one-sided and emotional destructive and toxic. Characteristics: An exaggerated sense of responsibility for the actions of others Tendency to confuse “love” with “pity” Tendency to do more than their share, all of the time Feeling hurt when their efforts aren’t recognized Lack of trust in self or others Fear of being abandoned or alone Difficulty in identifying own feelings Chronic anger Lying/dishonesty Poor communication Difficulty with making decisions Being dismissive or forgetful or what happens within the relationship on a daily basis Co-dependent relationships are rooted in many factors, but it's also rooted in limiting beliefs (ex. “I’m not strong enough.” Here's some examples of how this is actually showing up for us in our lives as empaths. Seeking the advice of others for most of all your decision making Giving your personal power away by seeking permission from others first Not trusting your own intuition If you’re an empath in a relationship looking for more guidance with releasing limiting beliefs like these so that you can stand in your own personal power in your partnerships… I’d love to invite you to join me in the Empowered Empath Coaching Course.

Join Naomi in her latest livestream replay where she covers the topic of empaths and feeling resentment in their relationships. So, why are empaths often people pleasers? Self-image plays into people pleasing: Having poor boundaries is often associated with having low-self worth and esteem. It feels uncomfortable to say “no” because we literally absorb energy as empaths and can take on the emotions of others. Sometimes we believe that other people’s happiness is more important than our own. Empaths have the gift of deep feeling and can be faced with emotional manipulation from boundary crossers. Does this sound familiar at all? Don't worry, I've been there too. But congratulations because being aware of these things is the first step in deciding that you want to do things differently this time.   So here's what's important to remember: 1. It is vital to remember that you are ALWAYS worthy of an equal energy exchange. 2. Know the different types of boundaries that are commonly crossed with empaths: Verbal: Being yelled or screamed at, being on the receiving end of hateful or even abusive language Psychological/emotional: When someone preys on your self-esteem, manipulates you, makes your feel ashamed when there’s nothing to feel guilty about, being gaslighted, or being constantly criticized. Physical: When someone physically assaults you, harms your property, or inappropriately touches you. 3. Commit to your boundaries: It might feel scary to keep having to experience uncomfortable situations where you have to say “no” when you’re so used to saying yes (it’ll feel foreign at first, but it needs to be built up like a muscle) Lack of commitment to maintaining the boundaries you try to set will have you getting the same results *A part of the conversation in this podcast episode briefly mentioned the topic of physical abuse. If you or a loved one is experiencing abuse, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (Call 1.800.799.SAFE (7233)) Are you an Empath or highly-sensitive person? Have you ever felt resentment in your relationships? Are you interested in building better boundaries? I'd love to invite you to learn your Empath type!

Tune into the replay of Naomi's livestream on the topic of how our sensitivities as empaths are not a weakness. As Empaths, we think that this is the problem. We feel like just because we’re different, we “can never get what we want, because that’s just the empath struggle.” As Empaths and highly-sensitives, we have always felt different than others. We were often labeled “too sensitive” by others while growing up (it actually turns out to be a gift. There are people out there who are just like you: Incredibly intuitive (many have psychic gifts) Natural healers who want to help everyone (just want to make everyone happy - unfortunately, even at their own happiness’ expense) You’re the person that your family, friends, and partners reach out to when they want to feel better Our real problem is our mindset. Are you at cause for your life? Or in effect? (Which one is more empowering) You might have said this before: “I’m just an empath and I’ll always be stuck in relationships that drain me.” Your words create your thoughts, and your thoughts create your actions, and your actions create your reality What you’re saying and what you’re putting into the world is what you’ll attract and see. Your emotions shape your reality as well.   There is only feedback, no failure If you’ve tried setting boundaries before or attempted to improve your significant relationships in other ways that just haven’t worked yet it just means you’ll have to try different tools and a different route (reassess, not give up). What’s your Empath type?

Join Naomi's replay audio recording of her livestream on the topics of empaths and being misunderstood.   Naomi starts by sharing her personal experience with feeling perpetually misunderstood.   She also covers the following in the episode: How we're facing an identity crisis collectively, but especially as empaths.   How common it is for empaths to feel misunderstood in their relationships How we think that as empaths, nobody will EVER be able to make me feel heard/seen (too different)   Harsh Truth: It’s not other people’s job to make you feel understood or seen. That’s our job to do for ourselves first.   Understanding her inner wiring as an empath, introvert, and INFJ personality type really helped Naomi understand her needs on an identity level. It also gave her a new sense of freedom and autonomy in her relationships (because she gets to be her own person).   Join her in this episode for 7 Reasons Why Identity Should Matter to Us.   What’s your Empath type?
