The Awakening of Others

As I mentioned in my last post, many of you will be seeing others around you who are starting to break from the pressures of the current energies. You will see this in severe depression, anger and even nervous breakdowns. Men seem to be suffering quite badly with this. For one: it is because of the strong influx of feminine energy, pounding the planet, which, for most, they don’t know how to navigate and because they don’t tend to have the same emotional releases women have (for all the female Empaths living with awakening males, you can expect to be seeing/feeling this in a big way. You will be part of their wake-up trigger and will need to be extra vigilante not to take on their negative releases, nor take them personally and be as supportive as is possible).

In many, there is an internal battle going on between the ego and the authentic, true-self. As humans we are ready to evolve, yet the ego knows with evolvement comes its own demise, so it is in survival mode. It doesn’t’ help that our external environment is designed to feed and stimulate the ego into wanting more of everything, in the shape of money, power, fame, success, fashion and beauty, with the premise that when we attain them, our happiness will be fulfilled and we will be worthy. We all eventually become aware, that this never happens. The true-self is happy with having just enough, the ego always wants more and is never satisfied. Thing is, most people aren’t even aware that it is their ego which is running the show and doing all the talking; they believe it’s their own heartfelt desires guiding them.

There are many people who are too afraid to hear the truth of what is really going on in the world. They read the paper or watch the news and take what’s been said as gospel and without question. There is an attachment, so strong, to their false impression of life that it is like an addiction and it needs to be fed on a daily basis. But somewhere, deep within, they know the truth and are keeping it hidden because they also know that when they listen to that truth, their illusions will be shattered and this may lead to the start of a painful journey.

Awakening and evolving is a destructive process and, on a soul level, one has to be completely ready for it. There will be some who, in this life, won’t choose it. I don’t believe Empaths had much choice when it came to ‘The Awakening’. We all had the internal alarms set, which when they went off, normally came in the shape of a nagging feeling that something was amiss with us and the world. This then heralded our quest to seek out answers and from there our adventures unfolded.

So, what advice do we have for those around us who we can see are in the first throes of self-realization and turmoil? It is too easy to want to reveal all that we have learnt, and know, in one big dollop, because we want to help others, but this may only serve in closing them down (too much too soon). As most are so completely shut off to anything that seems a little ‘woo-woo’ or out there, information has to be spoon-fed and given in small increments. If you have been on this path for a while, think back to what or who helped you in the early days: was it a book, a video, yoga or meditation? Much of which aided us back then, we have long since moved on from, but it may be just what the newly awakened need. Perhaps try to explain that humanity is ready to evolve, but resistance to it is the cause of much internal conflict and pain.

What we, as Empaths, have to be careful of in our quest to help and serve, is becoming a toxic-dumping-ground for others. People come to Empaths because they listen and really hear what they have to say and, as this is quite rare in today’s society, it can become like a drug to those who want to be heard or who love to talk about themselves (this is one of the main reasons many Empaths close themselves off and make it so they are invisible to others). Here is where we have to serve our needs first and say no to those wanting to offload. I’m not saying don’t lend an ear to those in need, but if they keep coming with the same victim-mentality or me-me stories they are just taking from you and this helps no one. It’s all about helping others to help themselves in taking self-responsibility; one can do no more than that. However, if someone does not want to hear the advice you may offer, it is not your responsibility to keep trying to get them to hear you.

Empaths, whether they realize it or not, generally know who wants to listen and those who don’t by their internal feelings. When talking to one, who doesn’t want to hear you (this covers all topics), and even if they act or look interested in what you are saying, you will normally feel an internal compression, like your torso is being squeezed and you will have a reluctance to talk.  For example: you may be having a conversation with an acquaintance and when it’s your turn to talk, you may feel a wave of heaviness and boredom wash over you, this is coming from the other and it’s the signal that they don’t want to hear what you have to say. This isn’t because you are boring them, just that they want to get back to talking about their world, because, sadly, that’s all that some are really interested in.

Unfortunately, not everyone is ready to hear what you know or have learnt. Most of us gained our understandings in small stages, so the information has to be imparted in small digestible pieces. But only to those who are ready to hear and have made the first approach.

Many Empaths feel frustrated that they are not doing enough to assist others, especially when one can feel their pain. It is difficult to see those suffering and know the steps they could take to help themselves. But, as I’ve said in earlier posts, we are all doing more than we realize in transmuting the energies.  Remember, in just offering a bright, beaming smile or lending an ear, for a few minutes, to a stranger is a priceless gift to some and can be appreciated more than you know.

  1. Can you explain what would cause an empath to feel like they can’t speak in the presence of another individual? Not just one time, but each time they run into the person.

    • That one could have many could have many explanations and reasons behind it depending on you and the situation with the individual. From personal experience, I’ve found an inability to talk when around a certain other is because I either sense the other person does not want to hear what I or others have to say or, and this is most often the case, I have been overwhelmed by the energy they emit and not in a good way. Empaths feel what others hide and it can prevent one from being ‘free’ with certain individuals.

      Hope this helps…

      • Yes, I think the second suggestion is true. I also felt a sense of needing to protect myself. It made me wonder if I really was in danger or if that person just had no control over how strongly they project energy. Could a person who is a salesman have such a strong energy to make the sale that they literally blow you away energetically…and not know it? Maybe their agenda amplifies their energy.

      • Most definitely! Sensing that someone wants to take from you, for purely personal gain, can not only blow you away energetically but it can make you feel physically ill when around such people… not nice.

      • OK, I have one more question. I would like to take my earlier comments one step further. I had a similar experience when I went to see a Mentalist entertainer. I was just an audience member, but not long after the performance began, I went into protect mode. I was completely shaken afterward. Again, like I was in danger. I was there with my husband and older boys. I couldn’t wait to leave. They were surprised by my response. So was I . I was expecting it to be fun, I actually bought the tickets. As an empath, what do you think was taking place?

      • Not too sure what a mentalist entertainer does, although I assume it has something to do with reading others informational fields (auras) and extracting information from them? If that was the case, you would have felt it energetically as an intrusion and a need to put the shields up for protection.

    I think you’ve just echoed what I’ve been saying to myself lately. What I’m doing is not enough and yet feeling the frustration of not knowing how to do more.
    Nice article. Thank you.
