How To Stay Positive In Tough Times – Empaths And Sensitive Souls
How to Stay Positive in Tough Times
I am Kari Samuels, your intuitive counselor and happiness coach. I've been called to create this special message for you because, oh boy, things have been very crazy in the world as you know. It's been chaotic and there's a lot of violence and just a lot of division and it's been challenging. It's been challenging for empaths, especially in sensitive souls.
The way I see a lot of people handling this as two different ways. So first of all, a lot of people who are sensitive just don't read the news. They put themselves in a little bubble and a cocoon, which can feel good for a very long time. I understand why people do that. The problem with that, however, is that we live in a world of polarities and we live in a world of division. That is what this world is, is polarities, black and white, yin and yang, masculine and feminine. Polarity energy is one of the lessons of being on this planet. So there's light in their shadow.
So if you try to keep yourself always positive and always like not in any kind of like hearing anything about the world that can bring you down or thinking about it, what happens is it doesn't mean it's not existing. It's just going more in the shadow, your shadow and the shadow of the collective. And eventually you have to process that in one way. So that's one way I see people dealing with the world.
Sensitive Souls and Empaths
Another way, which is so upsetting, is when I see sensitives and empaths like yourself look at what's going on in the world and say, you know what, people are crazy and I don't want to deal with anyone and I just want to go in my shell and not deal with anyone. I just want to, and there's another way of cocooning yourself. I totally understand the need to be alone. You see, I totally understand that. Because you must absolutely take time to yourself every day to process your emotions. Take time to process your intuition and to understand what's happening inside of you. It's so important. It's paramount.
However, what is so damaging about that is because you're an empath. You are energetically designed to emotionally connect with people. You need it like food, like nourishment. Of course because you're so sensitive that when any environment around you, whether it's personal or political, whatever that is, if it feels too intense, your instinct can be to shrink up your aura to just put yourself in your own little space and in your own little world.
What happens is when you do that, you are disconnecting yourself from your life force. You are disconnecting from your source of emotional nourishment. And then everything else in your life will kind of go astray because you're not being the shiny. bullion self that you were born to be. Basically, when you do that, when you shrink up your aura, you basically keep yourself from getting opportunities. You're not shining like the light worker that you were born to be because that's what you were born to be. You're a light worker, you're magnetic, you're emotionally intelligent, and you're emotionally beautiful. And so if you're not connecting with other people, also you're just not going to feel fulfilled.
And I understand the challenges, right? When things around you are chaotic, when things in the world or your personal life feel negative or draining, you're going to want to just be in your own space. That is a protective mechanism, right? To fill your aura with light and to sometimes if you don't want to expand your aura, you can bring it in so you're not taking in as much energy. But not at the expense of just shrinking and collapsing in on yourself, because it's not going to help anything. And that can affect every area of your life in an adverse way.
Energetic Tools for Sensitive Souls
So I've created this for you so that you have some other tools. Have some other energetic tools where you can shine and expand yourself and be the light that you were born to be. And when you're shining your light and expanding your light, that is when you create positive opportunities for yourself. That's when you're connecting with people, which is what you truly crave. I know you think that you want to be away from people sometimes when things feel crazy outside of you. But you really do want to be with people, just the right people, right? Just people that understand you and feel good in your energy field.
And the way to attract that is to be more of yourself and expand your light and shine your light. And by doing that also, you are bringing more light into the world. You're being the light worker that you were born to be. You know, you incarnated here for a reason. You have a very important purpose right now. And we the world, the universe, needs you to be that shiny version of yourself, to be joyful because that is what you deserve.
First Energetic Tool
So I do have some energetic tools or insight for you to maintain your happy bubble while you're still engaging in the world. The first thing that I would absolutely suggest that you do, and this is paramount, is that you connect with like minded and like hearted souls. They are out there. I know it sometimes doesn't feel like they are, but they are. And when everyone around you seems like they're being negative, whether that's personal, political, again, whether that's just in your world or the world, it can feel like you're the only one who's experiencing what you're experiencing and everybody else is like X, Y, and Z.
But you're not. Of course you're unique in your own special way and yet there are still millions of people out there who are experiencing the same kind of feelings you do, who like the same things you do and who can appreciate you for who you are.
Connect with Sensitive Souls
So there's a lot of ways to connect with like minded, sensitive souls. If you're spiritual, maybe join some kind of energy healing class or learn Reiki so you can connect with other people who really care about that stuff. Or maybe you want to join an online class or a community of people who feel or perceive the world in a similar way to you. And there's just bazillion opportunities online to do that. There is something called meetup.com you can go on and you can look for classes or interests for anything that you like. There's just so much out there if you really look and say, I want to connect with like minded and like hearted souls.
I know you can find it and it is important that you do. So whatever it is you're interested in, whatever it is that you feel is important to you, you can find people either in your community and/or online that support you and really can nourish that sense of connectedness. Because that is absolutely paramount. That's your root chakra. You need to feel connected to a tribe and that is what is going to help nourish you in every area of your life.
Second Energetic Tool
Now the second thing that is absolutely paramount is that you stay in your body. When things feel a little intense and maybe overwhelming or scary, sensitive souls, they exit, right? And there's that sense like you may even want to leave the planet sometimes. I know you don't, like metaphorically, right?
So what we do is we exit our bodies, right? It feels too intense to be here. And so there's a part of our soul that's just like kind of hovering closer to the theorial realm so that we don't have to actually be here. And that's something that a lot of sensitivities do when they're like I don't want to be on this planet. It's so hard. And you could actually be hovering pretty much outside of your body a lot without even realizing it. So it's really important that you set this intention to call your soul, to call your spirit back into your body.
Cleanse and Ground
What I'd like to do sometimes is ask that it's cleansed in the theorial light and cleansed in pure white light and call back all those soul parts and soul fragments to my body, my spirit. I imagine now that these parts of me are grounded, grounded, grounded, and really anchored into the earth. So you call yourself back into your body. You set the intention that you're going to be here and stay here until it's your time not to be here anymore. You incarnated here on this planet, in this body, at this time for a reason because you are a spiritual warrior. And you are a light worker and you are very needed right now. And the more that you are really intending to be here and be in your body and the more grounded you are, the more you're going to enjoy being here.
But if you're like kind of here and kind of not here, then your life is going to reflect that. But if you really set your intention, I'm going to be in my body, I'm going to experience my life on this planet in this time and I know that I came here because I want to experience this and I want to enjoy it, you will enjoy your life so much more.
Third Energetic Tool for Sensitive Souls
Now the third thing is to exercise. When your feelings feel overwhelming, your energy can get stuck. Emotions are energy in motion. So for your emotions to flow, for your energy to move through you, sometimes it helps if you're moving your body as well. Have a little dance party at home, right? Nobody needs to watch. You can just have your own dance party to uplift your spirit and you get your body moving. Exercise, walking in nature, jogging in nature, biking in nature if you can, even better, because nature as we know is like the greatest salve and the greatest nourishment to your body, mind and spirit. And when you're in nature, you can run into the most beautiful creatures. You could see butterflies or dragonflies.
I know I was jogging the other day. Something happened here in the world. I went out for a jog just to help myself feel better. And I did. And I ran into a puppy. It was so cute. When a puppy looks at you with their adorableness and they just, all they want to do, they have no problem wanting to be with as many people as possible. They still think we're good. So we learn from puppies. And it's just they bring you to the present moment. So animals, nature and any kind of movement and exercise, that may have been two things, but they're combined, right? Because movement sometimes involves being in nature where you run into wonderful creatures, great and small.
Fourth Energetic Tool
Now, the fourth thing that you can do that it can really, really help you so much is to meditate. Meditation is all about being in the present moment. There's different kinds of meditations. There's chakra meditations, which I love. Then there is mindfulness meditations, which are more about emptying the mind. And there's all kinds of visualizations. There's meditation on a subject, right? So there's different ways to meditate and all of them are about being in the present moment. So you're not dwelling about the past or fearing the future.
Especially with meditation, you have to focus on your breath and when you're breathing and when you're resetting your nervous system and when you're being in that present moment, that's all there is, is the present moment, right? The things you're afraid about in the future aren't happening when you're in the present moment. And by creating a more peaceful present, sensitive souls are also creating a more peaceful future for yourself and for the planet. We don't need more fear, right? We want peace. Be that peace and practice presence. Practice meditation and bring that mindfulness of breathing, of being in your body, being in the present moment. Bring that to your daily life. So make every moment a meditation and mindfulness.
Fifth Energetic Tool for Sensitive Souls
Now my fifth suggestion for you, I feel like they're all super important, right? Otherwise I guess I wouldn't be saying them. This is also one of the most important, is to do your work, fulfill your purpose. And I know when things get overwhelming, especially when the world looks kind of crazed sometimes. Sometimes you can go through this soul searching where you think, does this even matter? Is what I'm doing making a difference because we have from here to here to go and I'm just doing like this little part?
If everyone did what made them happy, the world would be a happy place. The reason people act negatively or violently or project blame onto other people is because they're not happy, because they're not in their divine flow. If everybody was, the world would be like utopia, right? So if you are doing your part to make this world a better place, whatever that means for you.
So maybe you have a desire in your heart to paint. And maybe you think, well, isn't that selfish with all this going on in the world for me to paint? Even if you're not doing it for a living, but it makes your soul feel good. It's really important to do that because we need more art and beauty in this world to make the world a more beautiful place, right? A more cultured place.
That brings joy to you and that brings joy to others who see it in every moment that you can create more joy is helping the world. So if you have a desire to paint, if you're great at customer service, and that is how you fulfill your purpose in the world is by making every single person you meet in your job and what you do happier because they just had a wonderful transaction. They had a wonderful experience. Maybe you want to write, do that. Maybe your purpose is to parent incredible children. We certainly need more incredible parenting in the world where we're teaching our children compassion and love and respect.
Whatever it is, I guarantee you if it brings you joy, if you feel like it can help even in the slightest bit, then do more of it. And do that knowing that whatever small actions you think you're making are having a huge impact on the world. And when you do these things, you feel more joyful, you bring more joy into the world and you're making the world a better place. You're being the light worker that you were born to be.
Shine Your Light
So I hope that I've encouraged you to shine your light brighter, to be joyful, even when things look challenging or feel challenging and to know that you are meant to be here and you are making a huge difference.
