Coping tips for empaths
Develop a protective shield around your body.
Imagine a shield of energy around your body. See it as being radiant and complete.
An easy way to do this is to imagine that you are sitting on a beach and to “see” sunlight all around your body. Mentioning body parts and feeling them warm up from this “sun light” helps when you are new to energy work.
Centre your being:
Imagine that there is a spark in the centre of your being that is your pure essence. Focus your attention on the spark and come to your senses. Choose one sense at a time and “tune it in” for example listen to the sounds around you and make a mental note of exactly what you can hear.
Don’t take on responsibilities that aren’t yours!
A person can get so used to care taking that they feel as if they are supposed to do it. You are not. By constantly helping you could very well be enabling, or preventing a person from living their journey, and in turn putting a hold on your own journey.
Get used to being the bad guy:
It is not easy dealing with peoples negative emotions – but care taking them or others does not serve them or you.
So learn to say no!
Develop your throat chakra:
Sometimes an empath will know what they need to say to make good boundaries; but they have a hard time following through in expressing it.
Develop your root chakra:
The root chakra helps us deal with being fully in the world
Smudge yourself regularly to release other people’s energy.
Take a sage or salt bath. This also helps release energy which does not belong to you.
BREATHE! Stop for just five minutes and just breathe!
