Top 10 Things That Weaken an Empath

I am about to share some things that weaken an Empath, either by inducing high levels of emotional or physical stress, or by weakening the body.

Now, before you think this post is going to be all doom and gloom it’s not. It’s for a purpose. It’s a way of highlighting how tough times develop us in unusual ways.

We all experience difficulties in life, it’s part of the journey, but it helps to have an understanding of why they happen and where they can take us. So here we go.

The top ten things that weaken an Empath…

1. Negative People:

Science has acknowledged that just by spending too much time around constantly disapproving or miserable people it can impact health and happiness. Meaning: we become sick just by hanging out with negative people.

Backed by studies that show how prolonged people stress alters gene expression within the immune system, more and more doctors are recommending their patients to avoid spending time with negative people to safeguard their health.

For an Empath, who both lifts and experiences the dark emotions or intentions off others, they are worst affected than most by negative people. They soon come to understand that it is best to avoid them.

2. Narcissists:

We live in a society that promotes narcissism. You only have to look online or on social media outlets to see evidence of this. But the type of narcissist that weaken an Empath the most are the type who like to control and manipulate.

An Empath carries the type of ‘light’ that might be considered as a weakness or something that can be controlled. This light often makes them a target of manipulative people and puts them in the firing line of narcissists.

That said, even when an Empath avoids contact with them, they can still get caught up in ‘the narcissist’s web.’ (Read more here and here). Which can cause various emotional and physical problems for an Empath.

3. Unbalanced Chakras:

If an Empath’s chakras are unbalanced it means they will not handle being around people for any length of time. It also means they are open to developing a number of health complaints.

The chakras are weakened by personal trauma, anxiety, stress, EMFs, modern lifestyles and unsuitable diets. If any of the chakras are forced open, by any of the above, it can result in physical ailments and a diminished or permeable aura.

A vulnerable aura is bad news for anyone, but is especially debilitating to an Empath. The condition not only drains physical energy but also allows the energy of others to have a worst impact. Read more here.

4. Too Much WIFI:

Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs), created from wireless technologies, disrupt energy frequencies within the body and energy field. They affect the chakras and endocrine glands, immune system and nervous system. In fact, the symptoms of ‘EMF overload’ are similar to those an Empath might experience from being ungrounded.

Sadly, escapism of EMF and WIFI is virtually impossible. Yet there are some simple things we can do to help protect ourselves. Read more on this

5. Low Vibrational Food:

Foods that have been refined, genetically altered, contain artificial flavourings, preservatives, etc., not only weaken the body but also the mind. They trigger amygdala activation (responsible for activating heightened emotions), ignite autoimmune conditions, depression and more.

Consuming animal produce, where the animals greatly suffered, might also trigger depression within an Empath.

Low vibrational food, such as the above, has a negative impact on all humans, but for an Empath, who often has a ‘hot amygdala’ the impact tends to be experienced far worse. Read more here.

6. Psychic Attack:

When an Empath is under psychic attack, they will know it by the repetitive thoughts going back to a certain person, accompanied by deeply uncomfortable emotions. However, it is when they themselves get caught up in ‘the attack’ that things become problematic.

Once tied up in the thought-process, triggered by psychic attack, it becomes difficult to break free. Dark thoughts lead to dark emotions and stress, which negatively impact health and wellbeing.

Luckily there are ways around this. This post explains more about the subject.

7. Not Living in Truth:

Again, this is something that weakens everyone, but not living in truth is particularly bad for an Empath’s wellbeing.

An Empath first becomes aware of how inauthenticity weakens them after spending time around those who seem to ‘lie for a living.’

The truth is, everyone lies to some extent; if only to themselves. It is how we navigate life and ultimately it is how we uncover our own truth. But, if an Empath avoids living their truth, they will get constant reminders to put them back on track, one of which is ‘freezing’ around inauthenticity. Read more here.

8. Conflict:

Empaths are generally the type of people who dislike confrontation, because it might lead to conflict, which can cause insult and injury to all parties involved.

Through life experiences most Empaths come to understand that minds are not changed through confrontation and thus conflict, but by living by example.

If an Empath gets caught up in conflict it can trouble their mind long after it has passed. This serves in keeping the stress hormones active in the body which can lead to health problems.

9. Observing Cruelty, Acts of Violence & Mainstream Media:

Witnessing acts of cruelty or violence, whether fact or fiction, are difficult for an Empath to observe. They cause stress and deep emotional disturbances within their body, impacting the immune system and emotional wellbeing.

The mainstream media, for example, glorifies suffering as a way to entertain. Yet, at the same time seduces people into experiencing fear (an emotion that becomes addictive the more it is experienced).

Avoiding the media outlets that manipulate fear, as a point of seductive entertainment, is best avoided by all Empaths. Read more here.

10. Rejection:

Rejection, for an Empath, is not something they easily brush aside. It wounds them deeply. Rejection is an unfathomable cause of insecurity that impacts them for many years into their future.

An inherent trait of an Empath is to be protective and faithful to all who they allow into their life. To be pushed away by those they trusted or considered as friends, generates a deep mistrust of people and a weakening of body and mind. Read more here.

Now for the Good News

Undergoing experiences that might have made life challenging, dark and difficult (any or all of the above) offers incredible experiences for an Empath. From the depths of this darkness emerges a budding flower.

Like the beautiful lotus flower grows out of the mud, so do Empaths find their way into the light by experiencing the darkness.

Most of you have endured living in the shadows and have experienced great stresses in life. But we all come to understand why… Enduring painful experiences, that weaken us, thrusts us towards a greater understanding of life, evolvement and spiritual awareness.

We have to go through the dark to experience the light. If we had not gone through all that we had, we would not develop the inner strength and understanding that takes us to another level.

Experiencing pain and working through it, allows us to see from a higher perspective. The dark really does serve the light.

So yes, although the above may weaken an Empath, they can ultimately take them to places of great evolvement and understanding…

Until next time.

THE WINDS OF CHANGE

I hope you are all keeping well in whatever corner of the world you live.

As I write, the winds are blowing noisily outside and have been for the past day or so. I cannot help but be reminded of the saying ‘The winds of change have begun to blow.’

Here in the UK, we are in our umpteenth week of lockdown. I don’t know how you are all experiencing these crazy days of change, but for me, the further into this time of lockdown we travel, the more I feel the world has changed.

I have got this strange sense inside that I don’t think I’ve ever felt before. Kind of like a weird void. Is it a collective thing?

Now, I realise that as Empaths, we cannot help but pick up on how the collective feels. And yes, the emotional energy levels of late have been amped up beyond anything we’ve endured. But what I’m experiencing doesn’t really feel like the usual collective fear thing. It’s more like a ‘transitional vibe.’ I cannot even begin to explain what it is. It’s as though things are coming to a head.

Some years ago, I shared this post about moving into a new world. In it, I discuss the claims of the late Dolores Cannon about our world splitting into two. The video is below. I recommend watching it. But first go to 1 hour and 34 minutes on the clip where, within a 3-minute window, Dolores discusses what we are currently seeing happening now. Bear in mind she died in 2014.

I know, as humans, we are all supposed to be different. We all have different ideals and beliefs. But the way the world is currently living is like existing in two realities at the same time. Those who see the world one way and those who see it another.

It seems obvious that our governing bodies, those who have lied to us and kept us consuming fear, do not want our world to go into a higher vibration. They want to keep us down and distracted. In fear. And they are going to greater and greater lengths to keep us there.

As I have discussed before, fear energy is all-consuming. It is meant to keep us trapped within irrational thought. At one level this has been done in an attempt to keep our vibration low and our mind’s controlled, but at another, for those who are ready, it helps raise us up.

I believe, at the highest level, we are experiencing this lockdown as a way to help us adapt into the ‘new age or new world.’ We have been given time away from busy schedules or social lives to help us go within and see what changes need to be made.

The shift was always going to be uncomfortable. All the past years of difficulties were also part of our preparation for moving from one ‘world’ to another. This may be our opportunity to begin again, but it also comes with it’s own challenges…

The Precipice

Many of you will be experiencing a ‘precipice of pain,’ where things get worse before they get better. This will come in many guises: confusion, worry, fear, anger, you may even feel like you are going a bit mad, and the levels of anxiety are ‘off the charts.’

Anxiety changes the thought process. It can make you feel incredibly confused, alone and isolated.

When I was twenty, I went to work in Greece. During my first week there, I experienced the worst type of anxiety. I went from thinking I was going to die one minute to feeling like I was going mad the next. I was a stranger to myself. The anxiety created waves of dread and fear that impacted my rational mind in the weirdest ways. However, once I got used to my new life and living experience, the anxiety completely disappeared. I then went on to have the best summer of my life.

The point I am making, by sharing this past story, is that the precipice of change can be the loneliest and scariest place to be. But know, if you are experiencing any type of anxiety or fear it will pass.

We are at the darkest hour before the dawn. Suffering can only be expected. But do not suffer alone.

Suffering in silence will help no one. If you are currently struggling, if you feel alone or that your mental health is impaired there are some things you could be doing.

Talk to Someone

If you feel scared, anxious or isolated, talk to someone, a friend, family member or professional. Our world has never experienced ‘this’ before. Although you are certainly not alone in what you are undergoing, as an Empath you may be experiencing emotions more heightened than most. So, don’t suffer in silence.

If you don’t have anyone to talk to, try a therapist. They may not be in their offices, but many therapists are still working with online or over the phone appointments. Getting worries off your chest is incredibly freeing.

Another option is to simply speak what you are feeling out loud. The load will be lifted and I’m sure someone within the invisible realms will be listening. Doing this also helps take any fear energy out of your head.

Get Out of Your Head

In a recent post, I discussed how beneficial finding silence in a world of noise can be. However, for some, finding silence is not the answer. We are all different and, as I’ve said many times before, what works one day might not work the next. If you find yourself stuck inside your head and meditation doesn’t help, you could try the following:

  • Tapping: The Tapping technique is known to help with addictions, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety and for calming persistent thoughts. It is claimed that by tapping the acupressure points, with your fingertips, it activates your body’s innate healing power and helps calm an erratic mind. See this post for details.
  • Mind Tax: Do something that taxes your mind: crossword puzzles, Sudoku, learn poetry or a language, even for just ten minutes a day. Anything that keeps your mind positively stimulated and distracted will help in preventing your thoughts from going over to the dark side.
  • Activate human growth hormone (HGH): HGH is a hormone that naturally elevates our moods, raises physical energy and keeps the mind in a more positive space. High intensity interval exercise is one of the easiest ways to help the body release HGH. I have attached a link here to a 20-minute HIIT video on YouTube that can be done by most fitness levels. Just be sure to start slow, at your own level, and build up.

Where Are We Being Taken?

Now, I have to be honest and say I do not know what ‘a new world’ will look like for everyone. I don’t think anyone truly does. Perhaps it will be different for each of us. But I choose to believe that we are experiencing the birthing pains of going from the dark into the light. It is something we have to adapt to. Change is never easy.

The winds of change may thrash us around, but, they also blast the old away. And, like everything else that has blown our way, they will pass. Hopefully, when we re-emerge from our ‘shelters’, we get to decide the path we walk and the life we want to live.

Until next time…

The Self-Acceptance Solution: Setting Yourself Free

We are living in some incredible times. Times where we can move into our own authority and start living an empowered life.

However, as nice as it would be to think we can just sit back and watch as our lives become magically transformed, we still have to put some work in if we want to see positive transformations. When I say work, it isn’t really. It’s more about making small changes. One such thing is letting go of old inbuilt programmes and beliefs. For example, letting go of the belief that we are not good enough.

Self-acceptance sounds like such a simple concept but why has it been so hard for us to do? We are all unique in our own special way. Connected to others but still individual. Our higher self knows this, but our hive mind struggles with the concept. Many of us have wandered through life not feeling complete because we have been striving to be something or someone else. Why?

Well, to start with, we have been given so many reasons to not feel good enough. Not clever enough, not pretty enough, not thin enough, not confident enough, not rich enough, etc. We have been truly pigeonholed. Expected to be one way. Same opinions. Same beliefs. Same looks. Same goals. But in our hearts, we have always known that we are not supposed to be the same as everyone else.

COMPARISSONS

I remember in my youth, comparing myself to the models in magazines. Working in the hair and beauty industry there were always lots of fashion magazines in the salon. The message we saw was that to be happy and accepted we had to be rake thin and perfect. Little did we know back then that all the pictures had been photoshopped and even the models didn’t look that way. But the belief was subliminally pushed in: We are not good enough.

Now that I’m older, I see the message hasn’t really changed for the older generations. Celebrities in their fifties and beyond (the age when skin starts sagging and lines get more pronounced, grey thinning hair is harder to hide and the body takes on a ‘jigglier’ form) have plump line-free skin, fabulous hair and the sculpted bodies of twenty-year-olds.

inspirational-picture-quote-if-you-are-always-trying-to-be-normal-you-will-never-know-you-amazing-you-can-be-maya-angelou

Now, although there is nothing wrong with wanting to look great whatever our age, in some cases a bit of insecurity can even be beneficial in that it pushes us towards self-betterment, but being bombarded with images of ageless celebrities can impart the message that this is how we should look and if we don’t we have failed.

It doesn’t help that the majority of the celebs deny having had plastic surgery, making claims that their youthful appearance is all down to ‘green juices and facials.’ When really, they have had their body fat sucked out and their faces reshaped and lifted.

MIND CONTROL

But it doesn’t stop with appearance. Our thoughts have been governed in such a way that we have not been free to be our true selves. Having opinions or beliefs that don’t tick the right boxes or fit in with mainstream narratives has been seriously frowned upon, and many have been too afraid to speak their truth for fear of being ostracized.

The ‘powers that be’ haven’t wanted us to accept ourselves. They wanted us to feel insecure, insignificant and fearful of being judged. This type of insecurity not only kept us slaves to a system and made lots of money for an industry, but it also kept us from being at one with ourselves.

THE SELF-ACCEPTANCE SOLUTION

It is time to let go of the illusions that we are not good enough or that we have to be a certain way to be accepted. As long as we accept ourselves, it really doesn’t matter what others think or believe. We really don’t need to convince anyone of who we are or what we feel.

Self-acceptance is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. In a world where fitting-in has created huge limitations, self-acceptance is a revolutionary act that sets us free.

That’s what I call self-empowerment!Velveteen Rabbit

Hope this helps on your journey.

Until next time.

10 Ways to Overcome Viral Emotions & Find Silence in a World of Fear

Our surroundings may be quieter than usual, but at times the ‘noise’ of viral emotions can be almost deafening.

In a world overcome with worry and fear, we all benefit from diving into the soothing ‘waters of silence.’ Not only as a retreat from the noise of fear but to reset within ourselves.

Staying in the space of silence, if only for short periods of time, is known to improve memory, stimulate brain growth, relieve stress, combats insomnia, and provides relaxation and respite for the body.

Silence is the perfect remedy to counteract the viral emotions that have infiltrated every area of life. It is both healing and rejuvenating. Not only does silence help reset and still a wired mind, it is also good for balancing our sensory gating process.

Sensory Gating

Wikepdia defines sensory gating as a neurological process of filtering out redundant or unnecessary stimuli in the brain from all possible environmental stimuli.

Sensory gating prevents an overload of irrelevant information in the higher cortical centres of the brain.

Many Empaths experience ‘problems’ with their sensory gating. Sounds can be louder and more irritating, and the many different ‘layers of noise’ in the environment can lead to stress and physical ailments

I liken the Empath’s ability of feeling others’ emotions to a form of sensory gating. Too much sensory information, in the form of emotional energy, works like an influx of noise, proving to be both stress-inducing and exhausting for many. The act of spending time in silence helps to counteract this.

Ten simple ways to access the power of silence:

Here are ten simple ways to benefit from a ‘silence session.’

1. Meditation

Let’s start with the obvious one and the healing technique I always come back to, meditation.

Meditation comes with so many benefits (including many science-backed benefits) from relieving stress to healing physical ailments. It is known to improve all areas of life and helps us become better at everything we do. It also gives us a greater understanding of who we are and where we fit into life.

During these trying times, meditation is something we all benefit from practising, not only for stilling and empowering our mind, but to tune us into our heart centre and higher consciousness.

2. Listen to soft music with ear phones

So, listening to soft music might sound like a contradiction. After all, isn’t music classed as noise? But this is a good method for when your environment is noisy. It cuts off the sound of the outside world and allows for a respite of the mind. The right kind of music can also be healing as well as soothing to the senses. I came across these incredible healing music videos on YouTube here and here.

3. Go into the woods

The sounds of Nature offer the healing benefits of silence. Being around densely populated areas of trees is the perfect way to bask in Nature’s healing stillness. Even better, if you can get close to natural running water it is also purifying (read more here).

If Earthing is practised at the same time, as being out in Nature, it will have double the benefits.

4. Get up early

The quietest time of the day is in the early morning, before the world has woken up. Instead of engaging the brain first thing, by flicking on the TV, radio or checking messages, why not start the day in silence?

Just by sitting in the stillness of a sleeping world it can zone us into the healing vibrations of silence.

5. Take an aromatherapy bath

You may wonder what taking a bath has to do with finding silence, but this is more for silencing the stress sensors. Water is healing in itself, but when an aromatherapy oil is incorporated into the mix, such as Lavender or Chamomile (added to a carrier oil first), it helps turn off the senses engaged by viral emotions.

Essential oils send healing instructions to the limbic system (the system that controls emotions) to relax. They are particularly good to use if you have been experiencing anxiety triggered by external stress. (This post has 11 essential oils beneficial for an Empath).

Light some candles, put a do not disturb sign on the door and immerse yourself for at least twenty minutes (if you live in a noisy house pop your earphones in).

6. Go outdoors after dark

For the most of us, the only time we spend in darkness is when we go to sleep in the evening. But being outdoors at night, in a safe area such as the garden, is particularly good for tuning into silence.

There’s something incredibly stilling and peaceful about the darkened night sky, especially when blanketed with a sweeping of shimmering stars.

If you don’t have a garden, sitting with your eyes open in a darkened room also reaps many benefits.

7. Be at one with your breath

When you fully tune into the breath, by focusing on your inhale and exhale, it helps drown out the noise of the outside world. If you cover your ears at the same time it has an extra benefit.

Try it now and see for yourself. Put your hands over your ears, close your eyes and take 8 to 10 deep breaths. When you remove your hands, you will experience a quieter world than before.

Any type of yogic breathing exercise is also perfect for stilling the mind.

8. Chanting

Again, another one that seems to contradict the idea of finding silence. But, repeating a song-like mantra, such as OM, is not only healing to the body, mind and spirit it helps us find a stillness within.

Chanting is known to purify the environment by creating positive vibrations and filtering out fear energy.

A French physician and auditory neurophysiologist, Dr. Tomatis, believes the ears affect the entire nervous system. He noted how sounds like music or noise, determine physical energy levels and our sense of well-being. He experimented with different music frequencies, noting their effects on humans. By studying Benedictine monks, he observed the healing benefits of chanting. When the monks daily chanting ritual was taken away, for a short period of time, most fell ill. When the singing was reintroduced, they made a full recovery.

9. Get creative 

Draw, paint, sing or arrange flowers. Whatever gets your ‘creative juices’ flowing will work.

When the creative mind is kept occupied, by engaging in something that holds the imagination, it tends to switch off from the outside world. Viral emotions and loud sounds get locked out by the ‘lack of sensory engagement.’ This in itself has the benefit of silencing the mind.

10. Turn off the WIFI

We are so connected to the internet in our daily lives, that just by having a WIFI break it helps tune us into the power of silence. It is not until we take a break from the noise of electrical frequencies that we see how they affected our body and mind. This also helps in the respect that when we are constantly bombarded with online information it leads to sensory overload.

≈≈≈

I hope you find this list beneficial and inspires you to tune into the vibration of silence. Even if it’s just for ten minutes a day.

Until next time.

Diane.

THE PROBLEM WITH BEING RED-PILLED

Have You Taken the Red Pill?

In the sci-fi movie, The Matrix, the main character, Neo, gets the choice of taking a red or blue pill. The red pill exposes the reality to which he was born, a world where humans sleep whilst their minds live within a virtual matrix and their energy is used as battery power for machines. The blue pill keeps the real world veiled and his mind trapped under the illusion.

Neo chose the red pill.

‘Taking the red pill’ is a metaphor for having awoken in a world where the masses are still asleep to the truth of their world.

Living in the Matrix

Those of us who have been red-pilled are watching as the masses are dragged deeper into ‘The Matrix.’ Buying into all the crap that has been put out by the mainstream and the governments without question.

Most of you reading this will have will have taken the red pill.

When I was in my teens and early twenties, before I took the red pill, I probably would have bought into the current Coronavirus fear. I may have felt something was off, but I would never have imagined that the governments could have got away with such mass deceptions, or that the world would be so easily fooled into giving their power away.

The problem with being red-pilled is that we are caught up in a world where the blue pill rules which can be isolating. Those still ‘under the blue pill influence’ think those who aren’t are delusional. What is happening now with the Coronavirus is a classic example.

Lockdown or Locked Up?

We have all willingly imprisoned ourselves in our homes over an illness that is being proven to be no worse than a bad year of seasonal flu. We have been told we are saving our health services. But our hospitals are virtually empty.

In the UK they are clapping their way into further loss of freedoms. The clapping isn’t about praising the NHS for their efforts. It is about condoning the government’s actions.

Now, as much as I respect and admire anyone who cares for others or saves lives in their career, I know the clapping isn’t really for those workers. It’s a way of saying, ‘I’m ok with this imposed incarceration. I am ok that perfectly healthy people are being kept from their lives and their loved ones, under the guise that we are protecting a vulnerable health service.’

We are not locked up to protect people. We are supposedly protecting a health service. This lockdown is actually killing people who should be being treated by our health services but aren’t.

If it was known this virus would kill a quarter of the UK’s population, then I would have fully supported the lockdown. But the figures have never suggested this.

People seem to have forgotten that for 80 or 90% of the population, this virus will cause nothing more than a cold or flu. If that. Some people will have no symptoms. It is a small percentage of the populace who will get more serious ailments. This is what happens with cold or flu. Every year it is the most vulnerable at risk from getting serious health complications from flu. And yes, that is still with flu vaccinations.

There are also occasions when those who are ‘seemingly healthy,’ with no underlying health conditions, will succumb to serious health complications, or even death, from the flu. Just like can happen with Coronavirus.

I completely understand the fear of death or the fear of getting ill. Every day, just by going about our lives, we are at risk of death, injury or illness. That is life. We should not take unnecessary risks or put ourselves in harm’s way, but nor should we lock ourselves away for fear of what may come.

When I was a child, I had allergic asthma. Allergens like cigarette smoke, certain animals and chlorine in pools used to trigger an attack. If I ever got a cold or flu it would also result in an asthma attack. I had to avoid going to places that were triggers. I still remember what it was like not being able to breathe. So, I completely understand why it is important to protect those most at risk with underlying health conditions.

But for the healthy majority to be locked away in their homes is insanity.

People are being controlled through their two most powerful emotions, love and fear. Fear that they may get the virus, or pass it on to those they love.

Science Doesn’t Always Know Best

We have been urged to place our faith in science instead of Nature, which I believe is wrong. As well as giving us what we need to survive: air to breathe, water to drink and food to eat, Nature also gave us immune systems to help keep us alive. Our immune systems are there to protect us from virus and disease! This can be done through herd immunity.

If those of us at lowest risk from the virus had not all been locked away in our homes, we could have developed immunity. By having this herd immunity to the virus, we could have protected the most vulnerable. When enough people become immune, a virus generally disappears. Just like the many strains of the common cold that traverse the world each year run their course.

By being locked away in our homes, however, the virus is free to not only grow but also mutate.

If we had not all been put in lockdown and followed the path of herd immunity, we would not be facing years of restrictions and social distancing, an economic crisis and poverty of the likes we have never seen.

Some might suggest that we are indeed practising herd immunity when we visit the shops, but social distancing has been put in place to ‘prevent the spread of the virus.’ Viruses cannot jump 6 feet. So, herd immunity doesn’t happen as fast as it could.

The Cull

This almost seems like a cull of those who are not indoctrinated into ‘the system.’ The first to go are the over 70s. Those whose minds are freest because they grew up in a ‘cyber-free’ world. And no, it won’t be the virus that kills them (although that would be written on the death certificate). It will be the stress, the isolation and despair. People will feel like they have got nothing to live for and their mind will start to break down the body.

Yes, stress kills!

Free Your Mind

It is freeing our mind that sets us free

As Morpheus said in The Matrix movie, ‘The mind makes it real. The body cannot live without the mind.’

In other words, it is the mind that creates our reality.

The mind can make our life hell or it can create heaven on earth (even when under house arrest). If the mind has been caught up in ‘the mainstream matrix’ then it has been controlled by fear.

If the mind, however, is able to switch off the irrational voice of fear, a whole new world emerges. Truths are revealed.

The best way to free the mind is to still the mind.

People were not ready to hear the truth in the early days of lockdown. Which made it difficult for those of us who had been red-pilled to discuss what we could see going on around us. Now, however, people are starting to realise they may never get their freedoms back. This is where we have the opportunity to spread the word.

This is everyone’s chance to wake up and take back their power. We are in times of transformation. Transformations are not always easy but they are full of opportunity.

RAISING THE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS: THE EMPATH MEDITATION

CALLING ALL EMPATHS

In whatever part of the world you live, on the 5th May 2020, I am calling on all Empaths to unite in meditation to help raise the collective consciousness. However, if you are reading this after said date, please know that whatever date or time that you work to raise the collective consciousness, in meditation, you are making a huge difference. Please read this post to understand why.

If enough of us can spend as little as ten minutes in a meditative state during the 5th, or at any other time, sending out positive intentions, we can not only help clear the dreadful fear and panic energy that has gripped at the heart of the world, but also assist in waking up the masses to the inevitable outcome of this lockdown of humanity.

You can make a difference. Yes, You!

It is time to take our power back.

You could practice your usual meditation or follow this simple one below.

MEDITATION

  • Sit in a comfortable position.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breath. Inhale for a count of four and exhale for a count of six (or for however long feels comfortable. Keeping the inhale shorter than the exhale will help you get into a more relaxed state). Continue for a couple of minutes.
  • Then allow yourself to feel a deep sense of gratitude. Bask in this empowering emotion for several minutes.
  • Next, allow a healing white light to come into the crown of your head. See the light slowly filling up your body, then let it radiate out into your aura and beyond. In your mind’s eye, see this powerful healing light sweeping out in all directions across the land, touching the hearts of everyone it passes.
  • Then bring your attention back to your heart and allow yourself to bask again in gratitude.
  • Stay in this empowered state for as long as feels comfortable.

(If you struggle to get into a meditative state, you could use the three-minute meditation to calm your mind and thoughts beforehand. Click here for instructions).

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CAN SEE THE RESULT OF THE LOCKDOWN BUT OTHERS CAN’T

reset

If you can see, quite clearly, the likely outcome of this global lockdown, but no one is listening to your concerns, what do you do?

You know how destructive this lockdown is to the physical and mental health of the populace, yet no one wants to hear. You can see that these measures could result in extreme poverty like we’ve never experienced, and you can see that everyone is so blinded by the fear of catching the virus (a virus that causes little more than cold symptoms for the majority), that they cannot see past their anxiety to where the world will end up afterwards.

(I urge you all to read this very well written and researched article about the true nature of the lockdown and its devastating impact, written by Kristen Young Christman)

If you were to ask someone what would they rather: catch a virus that will likely cause no worse than the flu or starve to death? What option do you think they would take? I know I would rather take my chances with the flu.

Starvation is a possible outcome of these lockdown measures that many will face. Extreme poverty, people losing their homes and living on the streets is another. Yes, a harsh reality.

That is not to mention the deaths of all our elderly citizens, locked away in their homes, away from their loved ones. Loneliness and isolation is a killer.

THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND

It beggars belief that the majority are still in favour of the current lockdown measures, whilst those who are trying to alert the world to its likely outcome are silenced.

When people are seen to defy the imposed lockdown, I have seen comments saying, ‘They don’t think they will catch the virus.’ Or, ‘They are putting everyone’s lives at risk.’ But by advocating the lockdown measures, enforced around the world, it shows that the majority are not looking beyond and are in fact themselves helping to sign death certificates.

A recession of catastrophic proportions is imminent. And recessions have a knock-on effect.

I know people are expecting to go back to the world we lived in before. They believe governments are protecting us all from a deadly virus. Some are receiving money to pay for lost earnings, but this will soon stop. Yet the authoritarian dictatorship will continue. Yes, another harsh reality.

People are refusing to see the illogicality of these lockdown measures. Measures that are both immoral and cruel.

We have a friend who has a brain tumour and is in his last weeks of life. He is in a hospice. No one can visit him. His wife and young son have to stand outside his window. He does not understand why people are not going to see him to say their goodbyes. What difference would it make if he caught the virus now?

My husband’s nan is 94 and went into hospital because she was disorientated. She then contracted Coronavirus. Her condition is deteriorating and no one can go and see her. She will likely die in hospital, surrounded by strangers.

There are hundreds of thousands of other stories like this. Yet people still believe the lockdown measures are the best option.

WHAT DO WE DO WHEN NO ONE IS LISTENING?

When no one is listening to our concerns it may feel like all is lost. But it’s not!

We still have the power to work on ourselves. To raise our frequency.

I discussed in this post how morphic resonance works. How the minority can change the majority. It only takes 1% of us to change the world.

We have to work to stay out of fear, out of anger and frustration. Because if we don’t, this is the energy we send out. We then become part of the problem and not the solution.

Fear is a human weakness. It is the easiest emotion to manipulate. Love may be more powerful, but it is hard to contain when immersed in fear.

THE ENEMY WITHIN

Fear closes the rational mind and imprisons us. We then become our own enemy.

In 2018, I wrote a post (read it here) stating the reason I believe many Empaths have awoken in recent years is to help to raise the vibration of others. Shed light into the darkness. I know it is not easy to do. But festering in anger and frustration only weakens us and keeps the enemy within.

When others cannot think straight because they are shrouded in fear, the only thing we can do is to try and lift the dark energy that has gripped onto their hearts.

Tune into the positive energy that is around us. Believe me, it is there. But we can only access it when we switch off from the hive mind.

I have found chanting Om a fantastic way to do this. Another way is to allow the sunlight to hit your third eye (centre of forehead) for five to twenty-minutes a day.

We can do it. We can take our power back and change the world.

IS THIS THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT?

I hope you are all keeping well during this period of uncertainty.

Considering the bizarre and baffling times we are facing, I have remained incredibly optimistic. I would even go as far as to say as ‘uplifted.’ That is not to say I don’t notice the dense layer of fear that is around. As an Empath it is incredibly difficult to IGNORE, but I have chosen to tune it out, by working to stay grounded, and instead basked in the new positive vibrations that also surround us.

You may yourself have experienced this positive energy. At times it almost feels otherworldly and seems to alter perception: The colours in Nature are brighter, the trees and grass are greener, blossoms are more beautiful and abundant, you may even notice flowers you’ve never seen before, and the birds are louder and more joyous in their morning and evening song. Nature is certainly flourishing.

However, although I am choosing to stay within these higher vibrations, I know there are still many caught up in the mass generated fear.

Finding your Power

If you have read my recent posts you may already know I am sceptical of the virus and the intent of this lockdown. I am not in denial of a virus but I feel there is something nefarious to the way it has been orchestrated.

I have not been watching the mainstream news or reading newspapers, but I still know what is going on in the world. I have elected to watch alternative media instead, to hear the voices of those experts silenced by the mainstream media, and those who, like me, have questioned this lockdown. That is not to say I believe every theory I hear, but it is important to expose ourselves to more than one.

It is not my intention to discuss these subjects here today. I will, however, leave links at the bottom of this page to the experts offering different perspectives than the mainstream, for your perusal.

The point I want to get to in today’s post is what reason do the ‘powers that be’ have to keep the entire world in such a state of fear and panic?

In previous posts, I have noted that since 2016 there has been an ugly war of division going on that has been getting worse. Everywhere we look on any media outlets, negative propaganda has been there to greet us, with the sole intention of generating stress, anger and fear. Those who control the media have been going to a lot of trouble to keep us down and distracted. WHY?

When the Coronavirus was initially labelled as a pandemic and the threat of lockdown loomed, the reoccurring thought in my head was why are they going to so much trouble to keep everyone in such intense anxiety? Especially when every health expert knows the worst thing for weakening the immune system is fear.

A global economic crash first sprung to mind. But another point that kept coming back to me, was to keep us from uncovering our power.

The End of the World as We Know It?

You may remember that the Mayans predicted the end of the world on December 21 2012. This was the end date of their 5000-year calendar. But, as you know, it didn’t happen. Was this all a hoax? Maybe. But one thing to consider is that the Mayan calendar and our Gregorian Calendar were not devised at the same time.

The Gregorian calendar has been altered over the years. There used to be only ten months and a total of 304 days in a year, compared to the 365 days of today. I am not sure when or if the two calendars were interlinked, so, the real end date for the 5000-year Mayan calendar might not correspond with the Gregorian’s. With this in mind, it would be difficult to pinpoint an exact date.

Those who studied Mayan prophesies believe their calendar was used to predict times of difficulties, in agriculture for example, and the calendar’s end date was not a prediction of the end of the world but the end of an age.

This ties in with astrology.

Anyone who studies astrology will know, we are moving out of the Piscean Age and into the Age of Aquarius. A time when we each come into our own power.

During the Piscean Age, life was based on the pyramid arrangement. Every structure, from families to religions and governments, had a single being of power on top who was quite often male.

Under this pyramid, everyone had their place and remained in servitude of someone above. The Age of Aquarius is about ‘flattening this pyramid’ and removing those individuals who both held and abused their power. Which also means realigning the balance between masculine and feminine. As you know, change is never easy.

I read a fitting analogy comparing moving into a New Age to moving house: No longer comfortable in your living space, you seek a new home, but the chaos of the move creates so much stress and disruption that you question the whole thing. Yet, once settled, the mayhem of the move soon becomes a distant memory.

Everyone Resists Change

Perhaps the world is being kept in such a state of fear because those at the top of the pyramid, controlling the masses, do not want to lose this control and are doing everything in their power to keep us dumbed down, fearful and under their authority.

Darkest Before Dawn

At a higher level, I believe the dark serves the light. We just don’t always see it as it happens. Difficult periods push us towards empowerment, but we still have to put in the work to attain a point of power. It is up to us.

Although these times are incredibly trying, they are intended to wake up the masses and push those who are ready into uncovering their truth. It is a ‘now or never’ time.

This lockdown may have been created for a malevolent purpose, to keep us trapped and in fear, but it can serve us in incredible ways. We have all been given time away from the norm. If we use this time wisely, to go within and connect with our true power, we will come out the other side in the ‘right place.’

Until next time…unknown

The Benefits of Being a Victim

Did you just read that title correctly? Can there ever really be any benefits gained from being a victim?

And the answer is yes.

If we allow bad experiences to shape us in the right way, then yes, there are many benefits to be had from being a victim.

Now, when I say being a victim, I am referring to being a victim of other people’s bad behaviour or having bad life experiences. Those times when we were treated unfairly or betrayed. I am not talking about being an occupational victim.

OCCUPATIONAL VICTIMS

Everyone has come across occupational victims. Those who seem to enjoy playing the role of the ‘injured party.’ Occupational victims seem to relish in telling stories of how they have been mistreated. It’s as though they focus on finding reasons to be unhappy. They like having people feel sorry for them and don’t stop complaining about their lot in life.

I often think that being an occupational victim is akin to creating some kind of self-actualizing soap opera, where one makes unhappiness a point of entertainment or life purpose. But, as I often say, we are each here on our own journeys of evolvement. And if someone finds purpose in remaining in victimhood, then that is their call.

EVERYONE HAS BEEN A VICTIM

Everyone has had an occasion when they were treated badly in life. No one escapes. Even those who are known abusers, might have started off life as the abused. And yes, some seem to have suffered far worse than others.

Some might be a victim of their own success, where the wealth and power that comes with their achievements ultimately destroys them, and then some can be a victim of their own beliefs…

Someone can become a victim when they put too much faith in another (like a guru or leader), and allow them to shape or control their life.

But we can grow from these experiences.

PAST EXPERIENCES

In my last post, I discussed how childhood experiences shaped my beliefs; how they made me attract certain life experiences and people. Everything happens for a reason. We just don’t tend to see it at the time. And this can also be the case when we have been victimised.

Being Empaths, and therefore sensitive, often means we were victims of heightened emotional senses and overwhelm. Most of us have been victims of others’ ignorance, but we have also been victims of our own expectations.

THE BENEFITS

The benefits of being a victim are numerous. It most certainly teaches us a valuable lesson on how it feels to be mistreated, or we might even get a taste of ‘our own medicine.’

It is easy to look at others and point the finger. Noting all their shortcomings. But we don’t always see the error of our own ways. We might get so caught up in our own world that we don’t acknowledge the impact of our actions on others.

Because being a victim allows us to experience what it feels like to be hurt, it can help us become more empathetic, more resilient and more empowered… That is if we allow ourselves to learn and grow from the experience.

Sometimes being a victim is exactly what we need for growth.

Difficult life experiences shape us. They take us on this strange path of evolvement. The real benefits kick-in, however, when we decide we no longer need to have those experiences in order to grow.

THE END OF VICTIMHOOD

With this new age, it would seem that the times of feeling/being victimised is coming to an end for many (those of us who are ready to move on).

We are in times of great evolvement. A time to move away from the abusers and those who took advantage. That also includes those in authority and those who have abused their positions of influence.

People are finally waking up to the realization of their own power. We are now at the ‘helms of our own ships.’ We may have given our power away, but we are now discovering how to take it back.

Until next time.

The Past That Shapes Our Future

What I both love and hate about this life in equal measure is that we never stop having experiences for growth. We may think we’ve got the whole thing nailed down, got our body and mind balanced and our outlook in line, then poof, something comes along that either throws everything into chaos, changes our beliefs or takes us on to a new path of evolvement.

Just like the times we are currently in.

Like everyone else, I am constantly opening new doors, making discoveries about myself and the world, facing different challenges and looking for answers. This year, it would seem, I have been tying loose ends up from my past.

You too may have noticed that in recent weeks or months, you have been having flashbacks to people from your past and experiences you may have had with them. Both good and bad. This could be in memories, dreams or meditations. It certainly appears as though we have been given the opportunity to understand and release our past pains.

My Experience

In the past couple of years, I have been working more closely with my crystals during morning meditations. Any of you who work with them will know that not only are certain stones incredible for protection and grounding, they also have a unique way of activating the higher mind and revealing things that have been previously veiled.

As Empaths, we may have strong intuition and good instincts with others, but when it comes to ourselves, we often have barriers up. We have to work harder to find our truths. Especially if in our past we experienced trauma, heightened sensitivities or childhood difficulties.

Anyway, last month I had been pondering my past and why I had experienced difficulties or let-downs with certain people. I asked the question during my meditation one morning and I received my answers in a somewhat indirect way.

Later that same evening, when out with some friends, one of them had had a few too many drinks and a subject from the past came up which had been upsetting for me at the time. Basically, a close friend had let me down in a big way. I had forgotten about the incident, but when it was bought up, I realized there were buried emotions still linked to it. Now, although I understand the reasoning for my friend’s actions, and I know it upset him at the time, I had not released the imprint of disappointment.

c37

The next day I got to thinking about why this had been suddenly brought up and a rush of information flooded my mind. Like a eureka moment. I remembered the question I had asked the previous day. I was receiving my answer as an experience of memories.

Past Shaping the Future

Since being a child, I had always felt set apart from others, especially my family. We were a family of six. Three older sisters, a father with anger issues and a sometimes-distant mother. As a child, I didn’t really feel a strong connection to my family and apart from my mum, I never felt particularly ‘safe’ with them. They were wrapped up in their world and it seemed as though I was on the outside. Because of this, I often felt let down by their actions, and had the idea that they were never really there for me.

This idea had become an embedded belief which was carried with me, and through my vibration and the law of attraction it shaped my life. I inadvertently chose my friends on this rooted childhood belief. This meant having friends who would offer me the life experiences of feeling let down or of them not being there for me.

The let downs I am referring to may seem insignificant to some, but in my twenties and thirties they were a big deal. In hindsight, it was almost as though I was looking for reasons to feel unsafe and confirm my belief that others would not be there for me.

Because I have always known what it felt like to be let down, I would go out of my way not to do it to others.

In the past, I assumed everyone had the same inner-feelings and Sensitivities as me. It was only when I discovered more about myself, and the world around me, that I came to understand this wasn’t the case. My friends didn’t have the same sensitivities, empathy or life experience, so they couldn’t draw on them in their actions and behaviours.

My friends are all different. We don’t share the same beliefs or have matching opinions and we haven’t had the same struggles; but on our own paths we have evolved together. They are good people who, in their own ways, are also trying to fathom this ‘life’ out.

Over the years, I’ve seen my friends have their own share of difficulties and let-downs, which I know has also shaped them. Life really isn’t easy for anyone. Even if from the outside it seems someone has a gilded existence, behind closed doors it quite often isn’t the case.

Life’s Expectations

It is often our own beliefs and expectations that cause us the hurt and pain. And when we can see this for ourself we know we have gained a valuable lesson.

Everything really is linked. We have attracted people into our life based on the vibration of our beliefs, even when we don’t realise that we hold certain ingrained ideas.

In recent times, if you too have been having memories or flashbacks of people from your past who caused you pain or difficulties, I would suggest it is because you do not need to learn from those happenings any more. It is time to let the pain of the memories go.

 

Hope this helps on your journey.

Until next time…

Raising the Vibration: What Empaths Can Be Doing Now

Whatever your beliefs on the ‘current world situation’, it would seem we are in a time of mass awakening and change as we enter a new age.

Since 2016 we have seen this as a quickening, where a dark theme has been creating a divide between people, keeping tensions high. Hysteria has been at the forefront. We only have to look at Brexit, Trump, the PC culture and manufactured gender, race and religion ‘wars’ to see how this has been playing out. Now we have a virus that is not only splitting public opinion, but creating panic and fear of epic proportions.

I noted a few posts ago that emotional reactions have been on the increase, and I feel this has all been part of these changing times. It’s as though approaching ‘the precipice’ has created a clashing energy which has affected people’s mindsets and behaviour.

For the Empaths, and anyone who is super-sensitive to heightened states of emotion, these past years have been difficult to experience. There has been a lot of nefarious energy around, triggering anger, resentments and conflicting opinions.

As you are already aware, when we ‘awaken,’ it is often preceded by times of great difficulty, fear or emotional pain. It is when we face this darkness that we work to seek out the light. The darkest hour is before the dawn.

The Darkest Hour

It would be easy to believe that the world has gone to crap and there is nothing but darkness surrounding us. But when we take ourselves away from the ‘fear energy’ (by avoiding all sources of the media and going within) there is some really powerfully positive energy around. This energy has been concealed by the all-pervading fear.

It is now becoming clear that we are being kept distracted from this powerful energy for a reason. We are in unique times where we can take our power back and create the life we want. A life where we no longer depend on ‘the system.’

The Projecting Empath

Empaths are powerful projectors. We can project our energy signature out onto others.

I realise this trait is not only owned by Empaths, all humans are capable of projecting their moods and energetic vibration. However, it is something that Empaths are particularly ‘good’ at. We are not always aware of just how good we are at projection or how important it is to keep our frequency raised.

What Difference Does it Make?

Have you heard of Morphic Resonance? A concept discovered by Rupert Sheldrake, also known as ‘The 100th Monkey Theory.’ In brief, when a hundred monkeys learnt how to wash potatoes on one island, the monkeys on neighbouring islands and beyond also started doing it without themselves having observed the practice. For a more in-depth explanation See more here 

The 100th Monkey Theory tells us how the behaviour of an entire group of individuals can change when critical mass is reached. This could work either way. If the majority of people are kept in fear, it can impact everyone and make the world a very dark place indeed. However, when enough people raise their vibration it has the opposite affect and takes us into a place of light.

Empaths can help usher in this higher vibration.

If enough of us tap into the positive energy surrounding us, we can project this energy out.

It is up to us to make it happen. We are the ones who hold the keys to the door that will allow this powerful energy in. One of the best ways to do this is through meditation.

Meditation is so important right now. Through stilling our mind and clearing out fearful thought clutter, we are able to not only tap into the truth of our situation, but we can also tune into the powerful energy that has been shrouded by the manufactured fear pandemic.

Meditation also helps with balancing the hormones and strengthening our immunity.

I have been writing in my posts and books for years about the importance of changing diet and lifestyle for those of us who are energy sensitive. Our hormones have been hijacked. Diet, plastics, EMF, and more has thrown our hormones into chaos. This has a knock-on effect not only on our immune system (auto-immune disease has sky-rocketed in recent years), but on our moods and emotions and thus our energetic vibration.

By raising our vibration, it helps raise the vibration of others.

It is after meditating, that our frequency is most elevated, and thus the best time for projection.

I find the best time for meditating is in the morning, as the sun arises and the world around is quiet. Sunset is also a great time.

If ever you wondered what the point of being an Empath was, perhaps this is it. To tune in, take on and project this high vibrating energy. It is no coincidence that so many Empaths have awakened in recent years. We now get to use our ‘gift’ in an incredible way.

If enough Empaths, lightworkers and awakened souls keep our vibration high, we can help raise the frequency of the world. We have a challenge, but isn’t that what life has been so far?

Find Your True Power by Staying Out of Fear

Staying out of fear energy is really important now, and the easiest way to do that is by avoiding the media. We have to actively participate and invest our time in making positive change happen, but I truly believe it will be so worth the investment.

If you are allowed outdoors, spending time in Nature around trees or natural running water is another great way of elevating one’s energy signature. However, if you are in complete quarantine, opening a window and listening to the birds singing in the morning is also super beneficial.

Here are some posts: here, here and here that can help with meditation practice.

Until next time.

EMPATHS IT’S TIME TO PLAY YOUR PART

Today there is a global meditation occurring. This is a bid to stop the virus and whatever dark forces that have been at work.

Here is the LINK to the times around the world. In the UK and Europe, it will be the early hours of Sunday morning.

If you have been noticing the number 444 in recent years, this is especially the time to play your part as today is that date. If you cannot make the above meditation time, why not do your meditation at 4.44 in your corner of the world?

EMPATHS IT’S TIME TO PLAY YOUR PART

Scientific studies have confirmed the positive effects of mass meditations. Empaths are powerful projectors. Let’s use this opportunity to spread the love and blast out all the ‘dark stuff.’

We can do this…

Pass the message on.

Diane

(If you struggle with getting into a deep meditation, you could use the 3 Minute Meditation as a way in)

What Does Your Gut Tell You About What Is Happening?

As Empaths, whether you are under ‘house arrest’ or whatever part of the world you live in, you will currently be experiencing a range of strange, often overbearing, emotions.

The global fear energy is like nothing we have ever experienced in our lifetime. Every day will feel different, and you might find your moods change from morning, noon, to night. Moods can range from being angry, pained, frustrated, powerless, trapped, afraid, uplifted, positive or even happy.

The more positive feelings are difficult to hold onto, as the fear energy around us supersedes them.

Irrational Anger

Fear is not the only problem. Anger is rife. People are projecting this anger in different ways. It is similar to road rage, and the slightest thing can trigger it; such as reading something you disagree with, seeing someone behaving inappropriately in regards to the lockdown, watching celebrities in their big houses trying to stay relevant in times when people are suffering… the list is endless. The thing is people are not angry at what they think they are angry at.

Just like road rage, it is not really the actions of others that are responsible for triggering this anger, but the feeling of not being in control.

Fear and anger make people act irrationally (look at the toilet roll hoarding). It often makes us lose our senses. We lose our ability to think critically and we also lose touch with our own intuition.

When it comes to life situations, Empaths normally have very good intuition and our gut feelings are often spot on, but the fear energy that has swept the world is messing with our ‘inner-signals.’

Here in Manchester, every day is different. Since the total lockdown was announced last week, I have felt the pressure of people losing freedoms and being trapped ramping up. Shaping itself into something ugly. The worst contagion here is fear…

We are pack animals who need interactions and freedom. Even those of us who are introvert, need to know we are free to roam and mix. The worry of the virus as well as the loss of freedom is generating a toxic layer of energy.

Which is not surprising. Being locked up is normally a punishment for committing a crime. It is a punishment because it is a form of torture.

If you read my last post, you may know I am sceptical of what is currently happening. I am not a denier of the virus, but it makes no sense to me why we have all been imprisoned for something we are told will cause little more than cold or flu-like symptoms for the majority, and just like the flu, can be fatal to those who are vulnerable.

gut

My gut is telling me something is very amiss. And if I’m honest, I think a good percentage of the population feel something isn’t right, but cannot put their finger on what it is.

Generally, most will fall into three camps. Those who do not question what the government and media are doing and saying about the virus, those who believe the virus must be more deadly than the governments are letting on to be going to such extreme measures, and then there are those like me, who do not believe the ‘supposed’ necessity of this world lockdown and that something more sinister is going on.

Most find it hard to believe that the governments around the world would or could lie to such an extent. We look to our leaders in times like these for reassurance. We want to believe they have our best interests at heart and are truly looking after our wellbeing.

But it is well known the media and governments do not tell the truth. They twist situations to work for their own narratives. The media controls us through fear. The news is designed to be seductive in the way it draws us in and plays on our fear of death.

I have been avoiding mainstream media’s reporting of the situation, but last week I watched a Sky report on Italy. The opening scene was of the camera panning around a room filled with coffins, implanting a message that this will cause our death. The next scene was of a ward of elderly people on breathing ventilators. Harrowing scenes of suffering that ripped into my heart and made me feel overwhelmed with dread. Exactly the desired intention.

Last night I flicked onto the news on BBC, and again I was drawn in by the fear mongering. It somehow changed by way of thinking from rational to illogical. I felt cut off from my own senses. It was almost hypnotic in the way it drew me in and took over my mind.

What Does Your Gut Say?

So, the question I have for you is, as an Empath, what does your gut tell you about what is happening? Does it, for example, contradict what your mind is telling you? Or what governing bodies and the media are telling you? Or could you be sensing what is happening has a higher purpose?

As I mentioned in my last post, I feel something good can come out of this situation. When I tune out of the fear/anger vibrations and into my own intuition, I feel a very positive undertone of energy. It’s as though we are being purposely distracted from it.

I appreciate that it is very difficult to tune into intuition when there is so much overbearing emotional energy around controlling our minds. Taking a couple of days away from watching mainstream media will help with that.

Also, if you find yourself being constantly dragged into the all-consuming fear and anger energy surrounding us, and your usual methods of rebalancing are not working, a good trick to try is sound meditations or chanting Om.

Om is both a visual symbol and a sacred sound or mantra which is incredibly healing when both heard or spoken. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds ‘A’, ‘U’ and ‘M’ – AUM. ‘A’ is pronounced as an elongated “awe.”

Om sound is said to represent the beginning, the creation of the universe and everything within it. It has been described as symbolising the ‘conscious or waking state’.

Chanting Om is known to:

  • Purify the environment around you by creating positive vibrations
  • Improve concentration
  • Give you better immunity and self-healing power
  • Filter out fear
  • Tune you into your own intuition

There are many other ways in which chanting Om can help right now. But what you will notice when you use it is that it helps drown out irrational fear. By chanting Om for two to five minutes at a time, you will notice how much calmer you feel after and in tune with yourself.

If you are self-conscious of chanting, because you live with others, you can always go on YouTube and listen to a recording with ear phones.

I found this to be a good one. (Just remember to protect yourself from too much WIFI exposure. Read why here.)

Staying in tune with your own intuition can help you ‘see’ more clearly and keep you out of unnecessary fear.

In my next post I hope to address the important part Empaths can be playing right now.

Until next time

My Thoughts on Coronavirus

Since my last post on Monday, there have been some big changes here in the UK. The country has gone into near lockdown. Every day we are having freedoms taken away to stop a virus spreading. Did we see this coming?

To be honest, I didn’t. I knew the virus would cause a global economic crisis, but I didn’t think the lockdown would be to this extent.

As I said on Monday, the fear energy is getting out of control. Monday contained a similar energy note to when Princess Diana died. The announcement that there could be potentially months of self-isolation (imprisonment) sent out a wave of fear and grief that impacted most people. Just like the shockwave of Diana’s death.

Much about this virus and the way we have been put into lockdown doesn’t make sense. We are told, for the majority of the population, the virus will only cause mild cold or flu-like symptoms. It is those with pre-existing health conditions and those over 70 who are supposedly the most vulnerable and will be worst affected by the virus.

We are told that by isolating ourselves we are protecting the vulnerable, as well as preventing the health service from going into meltdown, which, on first glance, seems like the right thing to do. But when we look a little closer, questions arise…

For one thing, we may ask why aren’t we simply protecting those who are the most vulnerable? Why has the world gone into complete lockdown? I understand that by isolating ourselves we are protecting others, and that we have to work together to protect the vulnerable, but locking everyone away, to me, seems extreme.

We’ve all seen the figures of those who die annually from seasonal flu. Thousands are killed every year from respiratory diseases.  Disease and illness are part of life. But we have never before experienced these measures.

I’ve heard people say, ‘This virus is more deadly and more contagious than anything we’ve ever seen.’ I realise it’s still early days, but the stats we are shown for this don’t stack up. The Mail published these statistics last week.

Look at how many people died of TB, and we have a vaccine for that.

Because of the way the media has played this out, and every other virus threat, none of us can know for sure just how dangerous this pandemic is. And no one can know for sure the death rate of this virus because no one knows the figures for those who have survived it.

In the UK, no one is being tested. Half the population could have had the virus and had no symptoms, or assumed they had a mild bout of the flu.

When on a cruise in December, visiting Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam, my husband and I both had a weird dose of some flu-like thing. Cough and symptoms that match the current virus. I kept saying at the time I had never had an illness like it and I was convinced I had some strange virus. I had the illness worse than my husband and it lasted longer for me than for him. Could this have been a strain of Coronavirus? Maybe.

Another point is, with the exception of the high-profile people who we have seen on the news, no one seems to know anyone who has been diagnosed with the virus through testing (at least in my area). Suggesting, if people have had the virus, the symptoms were mild enough to not warrant a test or a hospital visit.

The Lockdown 

We have been told we need to slow the spread of the virus until a vaccine is formulated (which could take up to 18 months). Wanting the population to get the virus gradually, so that we can build immunity. But isn’t that hard to do when we are in isolation?

It is known the NHS (in the UK) cannot cope with a massive influx of people with breathing problems and other symptoms related to the virus. The NHS has had continuous cuts over the years. Many hospitals here have been closed due to lack of funding (despite the fact the population has greatly increased through immigration). We have been led to believe the governments didn’t have the money to give the NHS… But what about the 80% of the wages which is now being given to those affected by work closures? Where did this money come from?

The government is also promising millions (in loans) to bail out businesses affected by the lockdown. Could this money not have gone towards implementing protection for the vulnerable and ploughed into the health service? (Didn’t China build 2 hospitals within a matter of weeks or was it days?)

Also, the excuse that they are not prepared for the virus doesn’t wash. Every year we have been thrown a new virus to fear (SARS, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, etc). Why weren’t measures put in place already, for when ‘disaster struck?’ They may not have had a vaccine, but couldn’t the money that they are now dishing out to the nation have been used to set up emergency medical centres and for pre-training of emergency carers and first-aiders? (like they do with the territorial army in case of wars.)

We have been threatened with the fear of a killer virus for years. But when it ‘finally arrives,’ there is no protection in place other than shutting down countries and imprisoning people to their homes.

As I write, the UK has not been put in complete lockdown. But we are expecting it. This week it was the most vulnerable who are self-isolating. We expect the second week it will be the rest of us.

After talking to people who are the most at risk from the virus (those over 70), I’ve heard repeatedly that they don’t know how they will cope staying indoors alone for a minimum of twelve weeks. Most said they would rather take their chances, risking getting the virus, and still be allowed their freedom. Which I completely understand. Freedom is a basic human right. Having it taken away, regardless of the circumstances, is a lot for people to swallow.

I expect stress and loneliness will harm more people than the virus, especially if this goes on for months. Loneliness is an extreme health risk. It’s known to be worse than smoking. Anyone living on their own, isolated and imprisoned, will suffer immeasurably.

Then we look at how it is going to affect everyone else. We are looking at a global economic meltdown of which we have never seen before. This could trigger suicides, depression and mental health issues. The implications of which will be felt many years into the future.

It is understandable why so many people are in fear. Not only are we facing an unknown virus and economic collapse, but we are also losing our freedom.

We have been told so many lies by the media and governments, over one thing or another, that it is difficult to know whether this lockdown really is to stop the spread of the virus or something more sinister…

Not all Doom and Gloom

I realise we will all have varying opinions on this traumatic subject, and these are just my thoughts. They are not facts. I also know I may have painted a very dark picture here, but I don’t actually believe it has to be all doom and gloom. In fact, I believe many positive things can come out of what we are experiencing.

Whatever the ‘real reason’ behind the current situation, we can use this ‘downtime’ to our own advantage. Difficult times can shape us in incredible ways. I can already see how this is bringing people closer together.

None of us can know for sure how the world will look after this. But we have the choice of how we see the world by taking back our power and by tuning into our own intuition. What is your gut telling you?

For me, underneath the layers of fear that are being projected on to us, there is a strong feeling of power and positivity.

It is quite normal to feel fear in these times. Being afraid of the unknown is common. It can seem like we have no power. But we do. We have the power to choose how to navigate this new journey. We rarely get given time to take a step back and evaluate life. And we rarely get time just to spend on ourselves. Now we do.

We have the time to free our mind, to get in touch with our true selves. We have the time to engage our creativity, to read good books and make plans for the future that we want to create.

It is my intention to send out posts with information I consider to be helpful for staying uplifted, healthy and at peace during these times.

If you come across anything inspirational, feel free to share it in the comments section below. We can get through this together…

Until next time, sending lots of love and positive vibes your way.

Here are a couple of videos that contain a different slant on the virus than you may have seen in the mainstream media…

 

A Quick Note on the Fear Energy

As an Empath, you are probably feeling all the stress and worry that is currently going on in the world. There are so many scared and anxious people out there. Today, especially, here in the UK there has been a definite increase in the ‘fear energy.’

There is not only the fear of catching Coronavirus, but the fear of losing work, fear for the health of family members and fear of the world not being the same anymore.

I am by no means a Coronavirus denier, I do believe, however, that the fear being ignited is not only unnecessary it is also unfair. We need a voice of reason, yet all we are hearing is the voice of hysteria.

If there’s one thing that will weaken the immune system and make it prone to picking up viruses and other illnesses it is stress and fear.

Even if you yourself are not overly worried about the implications of the virus, you will no doubt pick up on the fear of those around you, whether you are self-isolated or not. Fear travels. Seeps into places. For the Empaths, it is difficult to hide from.

Fear feeds fear.

The first thing that is affected by fear is our breath. It becomes shorter. One of the easiest ways to find instant calm is by taking deep breaths into the stomach and diaphragm. In through the nose and out through the mouth. By allowing the shoulders to drop and the face to relax at the same time will also help.

Aromatherapy oils are also good to use in these fearful situations. Chamomile oil is particularly good to instil calm if you are picking up on stress and anxiety from others. Blend your essential oil with a carrier and either use it in your bath or use it to self-massage.

If you have been quarantined be sure to continue to do some type of exercise. There are thousands of exercise videos on YouTube, suitable for doing at home.

If you find you are picking up on the stresses of the masses, this post on disconnecting from emotional energy might help.

Stay safe and know, ‘this too will pass…
