Jump Start Your Joy

Signe Myers Hovem is a spiritual counselor, an energy worker, and the author of The Space in Between: An Empaths Field Guide. In this interview on Jump Start Your Joy podcast, we are talking about empaths and highly sensitive people (HSPs).

If you are a highly sensitive person, or if you have a sense that you may be an empath, then I think you're going to get a lot out of this conversation (which ties so closely to this season's theme of intentional comfort on the podcast). HSPs and empaths notice the energy around people and places and things, and this can be overwhelming to them. The Empath's Field Guide, and this conversation, offers a lot of insight on how to manage your energy, hold space, and work with your gifts.

In this episode, Signe Myers Hovem talk about:

  • What it means to be a functional empath.
  • The difference between empathy versus being an empath.
  • Exploring what it means to identify as a highly sensitive person.
  • The power of our words and what we choose to call things.
  • Minding your energy, and holding space without having your own energy drained.
  • How to set up strong boundaries with people, places, or things if you feel an energetic drain and decide if you want to get involved further.
  • How do we navigate through the space of being an empath or an HSP in everyday life?
