Calling all Empaths! This one is for you. If you are unsure you are an Empath, or just recognizing you are one, this blog may be a little confusing for you. Please feel free to read my other posts about Empaths first. Otherwise, on we go!
There comes a point with being an Empath, where you can choose to stay in a victim role. For some, its a conversation piece to be an empath. For others, it gives them the opportunity to stay small and hide from the world. It is a perfect opportunity to not do our own work when we are continuously clearing for others and make them feel better so we can feel better.
The other choice is to recognize it as a gift to be so in tune with others. To be fully empowered by this knowledge of emotions of yourself and others. It is also another opportunity deepen your connection with the Divine and yourself. To be at one with the Oneness. HA! HA! :-)
The second choice is the one I am talking about today. To be empowered. I can tell you this is not something I was taught, but have learned on my own. Whenever I have looked up anything regarding Empaths, it talks about signs that you are an Empath, what it means to be one and how to protect yourself from others emotions.
It's great to have information about being an Empath. Even the protection is good in the beginning to recognize what is going on. In order to deepen your awakening and expand your consciousness further, there comes a point in realizing that protection is a fear based action and there is nothing to protect from. It is a perfect way to keep us separate and furthest from Unity Consciousness.
You may be asking at this point, "How can I not get blasted and crippled by what I am feeling?" The short answer is that it takes fine tuning. Think of yourself as a tuning fork. The more you can hear and be your tune (vibration), the more you will recognize the energies (vibrations) of the different emotions. That's all that the emotions are, energy. They want to flow just as any other energy does. What can cause stagnation and separateness is trying to find out if it's your emotion or another's, and then labeling it as a particular emotion. Or not allowing it to flow, brush it, stuff it down, etc.
You already know the vibration of any emotion. They all have different vibrations, which yes, differ from your own. There is nothing to "do" with them. It's to just be with them while taking deep breaths. They will flow. There is no need to find out if it's yours or someone else's. Just be....
Yes, it is that simple. It goes hand - in - hand with the observer role. the more you can observe the vibrations for what they are, energy, the easier it will become. You got this! If you would like more in depth support with this, please reach out to me. You are not alone. Ever. I love you. Here's to you owning your power.
Until next time....
Holy Schkamole!!!!! If you are an Energetically Sensitive Being (ESB), Empath, Lightworker, or all of them, you are most likely reading this....maybe for comfort....maybe for piece of mind....maybe for all of the above! Without further ado, I am going to dive right into this topic!
The past two days have been extremely intense for me. How about you? I feel it is a combination of energies that are going on right now. First of all, the build up and the day of the election was one crazy wave. The "symptoms," if you will, started some time mid - day on Tuesday, and have been wave after wave of intensity coming through since then. What I have been feeling is waves of STRONG ass fear. I mean punch you in the gut, bury in your solar plexus fear! Waves of emotions, such as being overwhelmed, despair, heaviness and confusion. (Thank you to my dear friend who helped me put words to the energies) I have had a very difficult time grounding because all I have wanted to do is dissociate,...Leave my body.....not want to be here on the planet right now.
Also, my words have been that it has felt like a roller coaster ride, except everytime you go down the hill it feels like the bottom keeps falling out. I feel it is a culmination of what the collective is feeling and something has shifted in the Universe. It's not just isolated to our planet. I got the very clear message yesterday that it wasn't anything about what I was "trying" to figure out. It had nothing to do with my personal life events. When I shared that with another friend this morning, they asked, "Is it a good shift?" I don't look at anything as good or bad. I look at everything as the Universal energy moving forward. It is forever moving forward, shifting and changing. It just feels like we have shifted in a different direction. Back to the roller coaster scenario. I liken it to the Mouse, when all of a sudden you feel like you are whipped in a different direction. This too shall pass.
I want to share with you what has helped me stay sane. First of all, recognizing that it is ok to reach out to others in your tribe (or me) to see if they are feeling the shift. Don't be afraid to ask for help, especially energetically, from others if they can support you. If you can support them, great! If not, it is ok! Also, and this is a BIG one, do your best NOT to ATTACH ANYTHING in your life to the energies. It will bring up whatever isn't in harmony with your true essence. Yes....the above mentioned energies(and emotions) will bring up your fears. Most likely fears that you didn't know that you even had!
Take MANY deep breaths. Maybe repeat to yourself, "With my breath, the energies are flowing through me. I am here anchoring the new consciousness and supporting the releasing of the ancient energies on the planet at this time for the well-being of all." We can create huge amounts of suffering within ourselves if we get on the crazy train and give those fears the voice that is unnecessary. And by all means, honor and nurture yourself. You are absolutely doing amazing! At times like this, it is of the utmost importance that we nurture, care and love ourselves, versus beating ourselves up and succumbing to the rampage that could occur if we choose not to honor ourselves.
As with everything, the answer is and always will be love. Love what is and Love everything that comes up and through for you. You are absolutely amazing and I am in awe of you. Please reach out for support if you need it....I have. I love you.
Until next time....
One thing I am deeply aware of right now is that no one wants to be taught unless they are specifically seeking a teaching. If they are going to someone for advice, counseling, teaching, etc., then they of course are reaching out for the teaching. Otherwise, everyone just wants to be accepted for who they are. In the moment. No matter how they show up. This has been constantly in my face since the spring.
I admit, I have been the one that is quick to throw the suggestions and teachings out there to others. Dare I say it is my nature because I love to teach. That's not what people want. You see, I have experienced ( and am currently experiencing) both sides of this coin, with the second side being the most dominant right now. What I can tell you is that being taught at fucking sucks.
In my experiences, I just want to be "be'd" with. Yep...I just created my own word. I am a very open person.
I am not afraid to share what is going on with me. It is very obvious that others take that as an open invitation to school me on how I should show up. W.....T....F....Of course the little girl in me says...oh gee...I guess I'm not good enough for them. That is an old pattern that is being repatterned with in me. One person actually came out last week and said I wasn't good enough. WOW. Just WOW. I get that it's where they are coming from, that they aren't accepting of themselves, yada, yada. It still takes me aback. More like I retreat from contact with them. I mean, how dare they not meet me where I would like to be met?
Well guess what?!?! No one can. Only we can give ourselves the love and support that we need, want and desire. Only we can love ourselves so deeply that it doesn't matter what anyone says or does. With all of that lovin', I am also acutely aware of the boundaries that need to be set. Boundaries need to be set because the love you have for yourself is so immense that the thought of someone stepping over them is appalling. Finding our voices for something when we feel like we are being overshadowed. It's one of the biggest cruxes of the life of the Empath isn't it?!?!?! Setting the boundaries. We learned somewhere in our lives to put others needs and feelings ahead of our own so that we could feel apart and appreciated.
We allowed our boundaries to be stomped on or even erased so that we could get others to accept us and love us. We make sure every one else feels OK and safe, so that we can feel OK and safe. Yet, when it comes down to it, we don't feel safe and alright. It's quite the opposite. We recognized a long time ago that we get ostracized for sharing our feelings and or expressing our true essence, so we make sure that everyone else feels safe and their needs are met.
Pish posh. It's time we take a stand for ourselves. It's time we tell ourselves that we are safe to feel anything that we are feeling and it is safe to express ourselves, in our entirety. If you can, recognize the signs when you are taking the back burner and not upholding your boundaries. (If you have recognized your boundaries...or maybe that's where you can start, recognizing your boundaries) Remember dear empaths, it's not to beat yourself up for any of this....you are only doing the best you can...
Which, coming back full circle to those that feel they want to teach us when we haven't asked, is all any of us are doing--the best we can in every moment. Please remember this....and remember, I am sharing with you all of this because of my own experiences. I hardly do the unwanted teaching any longer. If I do, I catch myself because I know what it feels like to be on the receiving end. I share this today for my eyes and I share in hopes that it will help any of you also. Keep on keepin' on and keep being amazing!
Until next time...
This is where I put the things that the Divine wants me to share at this time. :-)
