Recently I was chatting to a client, Sarah, and she was telling me that she felt very depressed at Christmas. This client is living away from her parents and hometown and she said that she felt very homesick and spent a lot of time sad and crying, even though she has lived away from her home for a long time and had her own husband & children with her. She had to retreat from the space, because she felt so sad.
I intuitively felt there was something more to this and stayed open for further messages. Sarah then proceeded to tell me about a close friend whom she had felt a lot of tension from at Christmas, and then told me that her friend had lost a child a few years ago and how she perceived that her friend was still holding onto that grief! Bingo!!
Spirit showed me in that moment, how Sarah had absorbed her friend’s grief emotion. It had been absorbed by her and because she wasn’t aware that this was another person’s energy, she felt it as her own. To try to explain this heavy feeling, she went into her memory and logical processes and thought it was related to homesickness. She might have even been feeling a bit of sadness, but this was no more than what is normal and could easily be managed.
I want to repeat that again…….
She experienced another person’s emotions and felt them
as if they were her own!!!
This experience creates a ripple effect for the Empath. Sarah sat in that sadness and her story of homesickness and focused on it. This rippled into other stories around needs and desires that took her out of the Christmas magic!
But the trigger was a false trigger and created a false reality! We can stay for years in this vicious cycle until we discover we are an Empath and learn to work with our gifts!
But overall the timing was perfect. Sarah had literally just bought the Everyday Empath course, planning to start it over the holidays. Her team bought the perfect example to her! As she learns to manage energy, she will find these experiences go away!!
From the Everyday Empath course….
“An Empath is a person who has the ability to receive and hold onto the vibrations of energy from other people, places, things or environments. This means that an Empath is not only able to witness or observe the energy around them, but they also absorb it. Because this is part of their makeup, this happens unconsciously! A good analogy is to call yourself an energetic sponge!”
So we walk around absorbing energies!! But it is not a curse, it is a gift!
A common question I receive is how do I tell if my emotions are my own or from other people’s energies?
The thing is that your school & life education has not prepared you for this!!! You do have to learn, or should I say remember, new skills!!!
It is not a simple thing that you can use your logical mind with. It is not like saying that is a peach and that is a plum, because you can see it. Answering this question requires opening your intuitive senses to sense the ‘unseen world’, the world of VIBRATION!!!!!! The most important thing you can do is to GET TO KNOW YOUR OWN ENERGY, YOUR OWN VIBRATION. You are a unique and special vibration!
Most of us have an idea of our self-image. That is a projected or ideal self, based on who we think we are. You could say, it is the visible self and who we portray to the world. When we think of self, we really think of our self-image.
But who we are is LIVING Consciousness. We are a vibration. Emotions are also vibration (Emotion = energy in motion) so it order to distinguish if an emotion is our own or another person’s, we must learn to listen to vibration!!! As you learn to feel your own energy, you can easily tell if an emotions belongs to you or not, claiming empowerment in that moment and not having to be weighed down by other people’s stuff!!!
Another thing we need to learn is to cleanse our energy regularly. If a pool of water is muddy, it is hard to distinguish any other water coming into it!!! This is just like your aura.
Getting to know your own vibration is the most important thing you can do in this life. You are here to be that piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is this creation and something is missing if you don’t be YOU!
Getting to know your own vibration comes with many other benefits such as:
· Aligning with your soul purpose
· Having healthy boundaries
· Knowing what is truly in your passion & joy
· Attracting experiences and relationships that feed your soul
· Being happy and fulfilled!
For many years, I was an Empath and didn’t realise it. I was constantly experiencing other people’s energy. When I look back, I see so many times that I took on others’ emotions as my own, fuelling false stories of who I thought I was. My main device for coping was heavy smoking and drinking. There was no one to help me understand this whole concept!
That is why I have put together the Everyday Empath course. It brings the teachings to you that you NEED to be an Empowered, Conscious Being. It teaches you to look after your energy and maintain your sacred space and a whole lot more!
You can read a lot more about it on this page.
Today I wanted to announce something very special…
