To empaths who are still hiding their inner empath self…


Every empath has, let’s call it, an “inner empath self”. Some empaths discover it early on, some in the course of their lives and some never.

If you’re an empath, your inner empath self is a part of you. You didn’t choose it, it’s something you acquired at birth. It’s the innermost part of your identity. You can also think of it as a unique part of your personality that is constantly connected to your Light Body and your higher spiritual centers. It is the part of you that serves you to express your high sensitivity and the gifts it brings into your life.

This part of you often feels weak, helpless, lonely, isolated, out of place, and rejected. It feels like an outsider. It feels that the ideas that spring from it are repulsive to most people. It is ashamed of its nature and feels guilty for its existence. It feels as if its energy doesn’t latch onto anything. 

Also, it often has a kind of “homesickness” and longs for its true Home, which it doesn’t know exactly where it is, but it definitely knows it’s not here. Almost like the idea of the “forgotten song” from A Course in Miracles.

Listen,—perhaps you catch a hint of an ancient state not quite forgotten; dim, perhaps, and yet not altogether unfamiliar, like a song whose name is long forgotten, and the circumstances in which you heard completely unremembered. Not the whole song has stayed with you, but just a little wisp of melody, attached not to a person or a place or anything particular. But you remember, from just this little part, how lovely was the song, how wonderful the setting where you heard it was, and how you loved those who were there and listened with you.

The notes are nothing. Yet you have kept them with you, not for themselves, but as a soft reminder of what would make you weep if you remembered how dear it was to you.

– A Course in Miracles

Does that ring true to you?

Well, this is only a part of the story.

What you often forget, however, is that your inner empath self feels this way mainly because you have surrounded it, usually unconsciously, with thick and high “protective walls” to hide it from the outside world. You have surrounded it with thick and high walls because you have gained a false image of it – an image that it is something weak and helpless within you that simply does not belong. And this is one of the biggest myths that empaths fall for because as long as they see their inner empath self in this way, they prevent it from developing and showing what it really is.

Let me tell you a lesser-known fact about it.

If you’re an empath who has been hiding your inner empath self for years, please take a deep breath, because it won’t be easy to hear. 

Not only will it not be easy for you, but you might find it totally repulsive.

Are you ready?

Your inner empath self is by no means weak. It is by no means helpless. It is by no means isolated. It is by no means lonely. Not only is it not “homesick,” but it knows that you have come here with the mission of bringing your unique “energy of Home” and it wants to express it outwardly.

And not only that…

Your inner empath self is selfish and it requires a lot of space for itself. It is completely focused on its mission and doesn’t seek approval from others. 

Actually, except in rare cases, it’s basically not interested in people at all – let alone their approval. Essentially, it is only interested in the mission for which it came here. If its mission involves working with people, then it will be interested in them. But only because it is part of its mission.

Please note that I am not saying that empaths do not like people. In this case, I am merely referring to an aspect of empaths that is closely related to their high sensitivity and their mission on Earth. And I am only describing the tendencies of this particular aspect.


Your inner empath self is the bridge within you that connects you to the true power you carry within you. Before you get to know that aspect of you, you perceive it as a disadvantage. Once you get to know it better, you realize that your inner empath self is your greatest blessing and superpower.


I’m not sure how much sense this article makes to you or how much it touches you. But I want you to remember one thing above all else:

Your inner empath self is incredibly powerful. Period. Until you realize this for yourself, don’t give up on changing your perspective, and don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.

Good luck on this journey.
