For all you fellow empaths, here are some tips to help you feel more empowered:
Thanks to my Pisces brother Mitch for sharing this article, as I know a lot of people that need support in this area, are going through intense challenges right now, and perhaps even more so with all the holiday hustle and bustle of gatherings. So these kinds of things are always good reminders. Then it’s up to the individual to consciously engage and put them into action daily until they become second nature.
There are many ways you can support yourself and the article provides nine really good ones.
I also believe it’s important to stay balanced and very present, spend time communing with and recharging in nature, nurture and take care of yourself – giving to you as much as you give to others, keep your body strong, healthy and vibrant inside and out, come to know your personal frequency and natural state of peace so that you can recognize immediately when you’ve taken on someone else’s energy that’s not yours, hold your vibration and don’t meet people in theirs, and use things like Reiki, work with crystals, and other forms of energetic practices or modalities you may have learned to protect, return harmony, and keep things flowing.
However you go about it, please be mindful of taking care of you! Being empathic doesn’t have to be a curse, but truly is a gift once you learn to harness it.
