Ask Dr. Orloff
Do emotional empaths get more sensitive as they age?
Question: Dear Dr. Orloff,
Can people become emotional empaths later in life? I have been identified by a psychologist as being intuitive. Now, after being blissfully married to my "soul mate" for 5 -6 years, it seems the energy has drastically changed. I wonder if emotional empaths gain sensitivity as they age?

Answer: Dear Karin,
Yes, definitely if you are on a path to develop your spirituality and intuition. As your heart opens, the more sensitive you become. However you must learn skills to center your energy in general and with your soul mate. You must discuss the situation with your partner and the two of you can work together to find a happy medium. As an empath you may need some more alone time to meditate and refuel. These tweaks in time/space management can make your relationship better than ever.
