How Empaths & Highly Sensitive People Can Become POWERFUL! 1920 1080 Christina Lopes

Learn how empaths and highly sensitive people can use their hypersensitivities to their advantage and become highly powerful Beings.

There are a lot of beliefs out there that say empaths and highly sensitive people (HSP) are fragile. That they’re not able to cope with a harsh world because of their sensitivities.

But I’ve had enough of these disempowering beliefs!

The truth is, empaths are resilient and powerful beyond their wildest dreams.

And in this video, you’ll learn exactly how to stop feeling weak and embrace your power as a sensitive person.

This video is the 2nd one in a 2-part series that I started with the video “Top 4 Reasons Why It Sucks To Be An Empath Sometimes”.

Make sure to watch that 1st video in the series before you watch this one. Otherwise you may feel completely lost.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this video:

  • How do I know if I’m stuck in the 4 protection mechanisms of the empath?
  • How do empaths heal trauma?

Here’s the audio version of this video:

  • Christina thank you for what you do I reasonate with everything you cover on empathics, dark night, awakening, the heart, and am going to dive into soul retrieval…I feel like my life depends on it. Thank you!!

  • Hello, Christina! Awesome video! Thank you SO MUCH for this and its predecessor! I’ve already done a lot of 3 of the 4 healing parts (the ego soothing, the heart opening, and the inner child work), but only a month ago, God let me know it was time to do soul retrieval. I was shown how a little bit of my soul flew off when I dissociated from my body during a traumatic event 2 years ago, that was a strong PTSD reminder from a very similar event when I was 4 years old. Thank you SO much for this information! Love and light to you, beautiful Christina!

  • Your information seems to be exactly what I’ve been needing to hear. You are totally awesome and the first thing I think I need to do is talk to my broken heart and see if we can mend a little. So much work to be done and yes I too am afraid I will die when opening and living through the wounds, many things are blocked and even though I know I’m extraordinarily resilient, I mean YIKES, it’s just too much. So tired of being a flipping warrior all the time. I can’t believe I’m suddenly 60. FUUUUU€K! Sorry, minor melt. I’m okay. I’m really glad I found your videos. Stay amazing dear one.❤

  • Really love the details. Thankyou. Emotional Maturity(at a senior age) & re-reassuring the(my)child inwardly. Ooo, even saying that… is mine to do,be with now.

  • This is the best and most in depth discription of an empath ive come across. At this point in life i doubt i will ever be in another situation that overloads me but there are so so many ppl who will benefit from your video.

  • I have done inner child work before but now I fully understand what happens. My inner child is not keeping a distance when she appears, but more often than not I simply cannot see her. Recently I worked on anxiety (using EMDR) and when the anxiety faded away my inner child became visible (this was actually surprising since it was not the purpose or goal of the EMDR session). For me she was physically present: she came toward me to give me a hug and I felt so much love.
    But only with your video I understand that integration is still to take place and that I am indeed emotionally immature! I recognized all signs actually, but this was a very new and powerful insight.

  • Hello, thanks for all the info. I’ve been on the path for years and am now ready to claim my power outwards. I’ve condensed myself and tucked my empathic abilities hidden. However at this stage of evolution and emotional health I can’t deny it any longer. My question is how do I not overwhelm my family? They are in a victimization place and are getting their insecurities mirrored back. How do I deal with this?
    Also years ago i had a soul retrieval by
    Jill Kuykendall at
    She is in California.

    • It’s not your place to work on your family’s triggers. It’s their path. You focus on you. That’s the best you can give yourself and the planet.

  • Hi Christina,
    I just discovered you and your YouTube channel when I came across your video from a few weeks ago on Who empaths truly and how powerful we really.
    You said everything I’ve known deep down. You hit the nail on the head for me on everything. I’ve shared that video with the few empath friends I have and ALL the Empath FB groups I belong to.
    The main conversation still seems to be the “Leaf blowing in the wind” feeling and the narcissistic/ empath connection.
    I fully believe that you and your videos can raise the level of awareness for All Empaths so we can change this narrative and these topics will disappear and turn to soul work, becoming healers and what you’ve mentioned Why our souls chose this trait for this particular earth walk.
    2 Things in your follow up videos resonated with me that I’d like to tell you about.
    On the video where you talked about the 4 protective things we do as children, when you talked about the last 2 especially, when you were speaking to your sexual abuse and children who have been abused sexually, those things resonated with me. But it’s funny, I was not sexually abused. I had no boundaries from my father though, who was overly sexual. And I don’t mean that he stared at me and made inappropriate comments, he didn’t even do that. He just had an overbearing sexual, narcissistic energy and I had no boundaries from that. But it’s funny, I felt completely violated in every way and Your words of physical sexual abuse resonated with me so deeply even though he never touched me. He talked about sexual things and women, etc. so that’s where I was violated but I was never touched. I just thought that was very interesting. The second thing I would like to touch on is in your third video which I’m halfway through but in the six signs that you’re talking about that show that we are still caught up in the for protective traits, the controlling our environment point that you’ve mentioned has resonated with me but for a different reason than what you’ve mentioned. I realized, after I got sober, that having been a victim in every single one of my relationships, even a victim of severe horrific physical abuse and one of them, that I created that and I don’t just mean that I created it with my thoughts and mindset, I realized that as an acting active doormat that I was controlling the situation from a place of a victim mindset. Because if I stayed a victim then I knew exactly what was gonna happen. If I straight outside of being a victim that was unknown territory and very very scary. I really realized, looking really inward at my shadow self, that being a victim was controlling the situation. Most people think of control freaks or controlling personalities as the “perpetrators” or the aggressors or the overpowering personality but we’re not. That one realization about my constant placing myself in every relationship as a doormat How that was in fact controlling the situation, I grew exponentially from that self realization and self admittance. I really just wanted to share that with you. I’m soaking up every word you have to say and every word you’ve written. I am like your new biggest number one follower and Fan. And I am spreading your words far and wide to any empath who will listen.
    Thank you so much…

  • Hi Christina! Thank you for sharing your experience. I love your videos. My question is about the disempowered vs empowered empath. Is it possible to become disempowered after being in a car accident? I had this happen to me,I believe. I was awakened, for about a year and then flipped a truck while turning a corner. I walked away with barely any injury. After I feel like my gift disappeared. 5 years after this, I was diagnosed within multiple concussion syndrome, after a second accident in which I suffered a brain injury.

    Can accidents/cause you to move between disempowered and empowered? Or would that be an indication that I had not reached full empowerment in the first place?
