If you are anything like me, you’re sensitive to other people’s energy. You can walk into a room and feel what’s been go on there. Or when you meet someone, you immediately know what they’re about.
This is a real gift, though it does have its challenges. For me, being sensitive to other people’s energy has been a lifelong lesson in boundaries and self-care. It always amazed me when people could be around anyone in any environment and remain undaunted.
I used to take things very personally. In fact, I took on other people’s energy as if it was my own!
Letting things, “roll off my back”, as others would encourage me to do, just wasn’t possible.
I’m an empath.
This means that I feel people’s emotions (and sometimes physical pain) as if they were my own. My guess is that you have some degree of this too. If you’ve ever struggled with any of the following, then you are most likely empathic:
- feeling exhausted after being around groups
- being drained after you help others
- experiencing dramatic mood shifts
- wanting to please everyone
- compassion fatigue
Trust me, if you weren’t hardwired to be sensitive to other people’s energy, you wouldn’t experience these things. Trying to brush things off or move on as if you don’t care is not how you roll!
Being an empath is a remarkable gift. When channeled correctly, you have an intuitive awareness that guides you toward amazing opportunities. If you’re unskilled about managing the energy you’re receiving, it can wreak havoc on your life.
In order to stay positive around other people, you must do the following:
- Cleanse your aura every day
- Stay grounded in your body
- Tune into your inner voice rather than others
- Be direct instead of nice
And most importantly…
- Raise your vibration to love, so you are not affected by other people’s fear..
I’ve spent my life developing these skills. I know the power of harnessing my energy to benefit me and others, rather than deplete me. Being aware of my own needs, feelings and energy is a daily practice, and one with infinitely positive results. I encourage you to take up this practice immediately and watch your world change from chaos to bliss.
