Energetic Support For Empaths
Updated: Feb 13
There is no doubt that these are very challenging times for everyone on Earth right now. But for sensitive Souls and empaths it seems to be extra intense as so many of us are aware that much of the collective is experiencing deep fear, separation and chaos as our old structures continue to dismantle. And, just when we thought collective energies might be easing up, the month of August brought us a huge new wave of intensity!
For the last six years I've prided myself on my strong grounding, clearing and self-care practices. And yet, with our family being in the middle of moving homes, building a new office and healing space, and navigating new education decisions for our children, I've felt myself coming ungrounded and anxious.
If you feel like the ground underneath your feet is unsteady or crumbling, please know, that you're not alone! We are all entering into an energetic space that has NEVER been experienced before in our human history. This space is new for absolutely everyone. And, just like any new space, it can take some time to integrate these newer energetics and find our balance again.
I visited with my guides last week to seek assistance in navigating these uncertain times. Their advice was both practical and mystical, and although it was specifically intended for me, I think it's worth sharing here as it is my hope you will find a nugget or two of insight that can assist you on your own personal journey.
Raise Your Vibration
It's important that we each become masters of our own personal energetic vibration. If you find yourself making decisions or acting out of feelings of fear, powerlessness, guilt, jealously, anger or other lower level feelings then your vibration is in serious need of a change.
A constant state of low vibration does not serve you or the collective, and we're each being asked this year to transform and transcend the ways in which we move through these denser energetics. In addition, a low vibration keeps the immune system weakened and will further contribute to a declining nervous system as well as other bodily systems.
One of the simplest ways to raise your vibration is to ask your Spirit Team for assistance. Spirit must honor our individual free will, so unless we ask, they can't usually intervene or help us.
When I'm feeling weighed down, I simply close my eyes and pray, "God, Angels, Ancestors, and Guides, please help to release anything from my form that is not in my highest Divine alignment. Please help to raise my vibration as high as possible in this moment."
Instantly, I feel a surge of energy as my vibration raises higher and higher. You can also intuitively draw a card or two from my Raise Your Vibration oracle deck. Access your free eBook and set of cards here.
Keep Your Field Clear
The guides couldn't stress this point enough to me. They said we have to be extra diligent in keeping our energetic field clear and clean.
You know when something intrusive is invading your energy field. You know when something you're reading or listening to isn't meant for you. You know, because if you are paying attention you will automatically feel your heart close and your vibration drop. You will notice the mental chatter in your head start to get louder and take a destructive turn.
You must have the courage to walk away from anything that lowers your vibration. This includes knowing when to unplug from social media, turn off the news, or walk away from conversations that are sucking you under.
I have found walking away from conversations especially challenging as I don't want to appear rude or disrespectful to others. But, I'm learning that it's absolutely okay and even necessary, to politely walk away from conversations that aren't in my highest alignment.
For example, I found myself in a circle of moms last week where they were stressing about the new mandates and regulations for opening schools back up. At first, I tried to just smile and nod my head as I attempted to not get sucked into the conversation. But, within a few minutes of listening, I realized I was feeling very anxious and annoyed and downright low-vibe. I felt my Self wanting to escape the body, and knew that I had to remove myself from the circle in order to protect my energy.
So, I just politely and nonchalantly stepped a few feet outside of the circle and focused my attention back on my children. Before I knew it, another mom had followed my lead. The two of us were standing together with all eyes on our children, completely present and happy in the moment, rather than fearing about a future outcome that is completely outside of our control. It was really empowering and blissful to not engage in the drama!
Please know that I'm not encouraging you to escape every difficult conversation. Some difficult conversations can be really pivotal in encouraging growth. However, allowing others to dump their toxicity on you, gossip, or stir up anxiety is never okay.
A big part of keeping your field clear is not only setting strong energetic boundaries, but having the courage to acknowledge when your boundaries are being violated.
Of course, there are other ways to keep your field clear, too, such as smudging, showering with salt, and being in nature. If you're like me, you may feel the need to do extra clearing practices right now, so please take extra care of yourself.
