Hi! I'm Robin, a social worker from the east coast of Canada. It turns out I'm also an empath. Not sure what that means? For many years I didn't know either. I just thought I was strange... and had bad genetics. It turns out I'm not that strange afterall and the things I experienced growing up (premonitions, reoccurring dreams, non-physical visitors, major depression and anxiety, telepathy, a deep need to save and protect) were the result of being highly intuitive and tapped into the non-physical world of energy.
Change doesn't come from playing small so while I'd prefer to keep to myself, each day I push myself out of my comfort zone to show up and talk about what it means to be an empath. Because this conversation matters, especially to the sensitive people feeling so alone.
Because energy is my world, I also love teaching about manifestation and helping others align their personal energies with the life they desire. We all have something we want to create for ourselves/our world and we all deserve to have space and support to bring our ideas to life. If you know you aren't living your best life but don't exactly know where to start with changing it, check out my mentorship program here.
As a social worker I have been trained to think critically about the world and advocate for those who are oppressed by the dominant worldview. Anything to do with energy and energy needs is widely regarded as pseudoscience and the experiences of sensitive people are often dismissed by those trained to support them - seeing angels/fairies/ghosts isn't usually a safe conversation at the doctor's office. Folks are rarely invited to explore how energy may be affecting their experience and sensitive people are misdiagnosed with mental illness instead of being recognized for who they are and what they need. By sharing my life, experiences, and interests as an empath I am starting a very real conversation about energy sensitivity and creating space for people who have needs that fall outside the western model to feel safe in who they are and what they are experiencing.
