It seems like everyone's talking about Empaths these days. The truth is, every one of us is an empath. And I couldn't be more excited to talk about it! As we become more aware, as we expand, we can effect true change. As part of the collective consciousness, we each have a responsibility for the energies we are emitting. And that starts with caring for ourselves.
It can be helpful for some to put a label on it, to have a name for the ways they've been feeling. But I call it simply being human. And we are waking up to the true nature and power of the gifts we've always had. As young children, we learned about the Five Senses, which is how we use our physical body to experience the world around us. But we are more than just physical bodies. What's more, those physical bodies are capable of receiving so much information, far beyond what we can see, hear, smell, taste or touch.
Feeling everything can be so intense. Debilitating, even. When you are highly sensitive, sometimes simply stepping outside can feel like an assault to the senses. Most of us have not been taught to handle our highly sensitive, empathic abilities. So we've developed ways to cope with this stress, to suppress or ignore the ways in which we feel and receive empathic information.... But, suppressing any part of our true selves is no way to live. And it's impossible, anyway. Your true self, your true nature, will always come back up. And until we accept and embrace those parts of ourselves, and step into wholeness, we will feel disconnected, depressed, anxious, or worse. It's always better to be who you are.
...I keep using the word information, because that's what these energies, these feelings truly are. Feeling 'the vibes' of a room, person or situation, is another, very powerful way we can be connected and in tune with the people, and the world around us. That way we can react and make informed decisions, no matter how things appear on the surface. (It's very hard to lie to empaths!)
I remember what it was like to realize that I had these abilities. (In New York City, of all places!!) First, relief - I wasn't crazy or broken. Second, anger and frustration. Why was this happening to me? Why do I have to feel other people's stuff? Third.... WTF do I do about it?? How does it get better from here?
It does get better.
There are so, so many way to clear and protect your energy. On Tuesday, April 23rd, I will share dozens of ways to
- work with and enhance your intuitive gifts
- understand what is yours and what isn't
- protect and shield your energy to maintain inner peace
- clear anything you may have picked up energetically
- deal with and protect yourself from people who are sending you negative energy, shift that dynamic and create healthy and clear boundaries
- call in your Angels and Spirit Guides
- create your own spiritual hygiene practices
The best part is, it's an online workshop! Meaning, you can join in from anywhere in the world from the comfort of your own home. (And if you can't make it live, I will send you a recording.) I have been working with and developing these practices for years. When I hold these workshops in person, they almost always sell out. Groups can be challenging for empaths, so this could not be more perfect. If you've been wanting to work with me, now you can! And it's only $22.
I'm so excited. People are signing up from all over the country. See you in there!
