The Empath Nature and Self-Care
It was wonderful to spend my time in this lovely woman’s energy. She’s full of heart without a doubt. (Check out all that green!) An empath through and through.
When we are so attuned to the energy of others, self-care becomes critical. Self-care is critical anyway, but it is especially so important when we are in a place where we absorb others emotions.
For those who visualize, I learned a solid practice from Kat Beaudoin of Our Evolving Nature recently that’s helped me a lot; hold a crystal or a stone in your hand and imagine this stone vacuuming up any impurities or heaviness in your energy, that big bubble of space that surrounds you. Imagine it to all go into the stone gently and with ease. When you feel clear, give thanks to all who assisted and for yourself.
For those newly beginning to energy work, taking a walk outside with the sole intention of clearing your field will do the same thing.
Or, you can use a very simple, but powerful declaration I’ve learned through Gina Millard of Shaman's Fire (*amendment: who learned it from Barbara Bloecher): state firmly, “My energy is my energy and only my energy!” KA-POW. It immediately releases anything that you may have accepted from a heavy interaction.
Know that the best way is your way and it’s the one you practice everyday.
Beaming light your way...
