Still the Empath Mind with Easy Yoga Techniques

The Empath mind is incredibly powerful. Most are unaware of just how much it shapes their world.

When you don’t have control of it, your mind can shape your life into a place of misery.

Many illnesses are born from the stress, fear or anger that originated in the mind. But the mind also has the power to heal them. In some cases in an instant.

You will have heard about the placebo effect and how the mind has the power to heal the body.

When testing the effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs, trials are often done on 2 test groups. One group are given the real drug being tested, the other group a fake (placebo). In many cases those given the placebo were healed. Their mind had believed it was given the authentic drug and it set into motion the healing process.

This shows how powerful the mind is!

Every Empath comes to understand the power of their mind. It is capable of creating such inner-beauty but it can also create the darkest nightmares.

The mind can speed up your heart, just by envisaging a scary scenario. It makes you feel anger by pondering an injustice. The more innovative the mind the more possibilities. One can only imagine what damage is done, within the body, by those who have creative imaginations.

And guess who own incredibly creative imaginations…? Yup, the Empaths.

An Empath can sit for hours staring happily into space with just their thoughts for entertainment. Whilst this is a lovely past-time when thoughts are positive, not so much when thoughts are dark and brooding.

Because thoughts feed emotions and emotions feed thoughts, negative thought patterns become a dangerous repetitive cycle for many Empaths.

When an Empath picks up the emotions, or thoughts, of those around them, they often claim them as their own. If unaware, they can get caught up in a tornado of torrid, angry thoughts that don’t belong to them.

If you find negative emotions, either your own or others’, are ruling your life, now is the time to take  control of your mind.

By practicing some type of yoga technique you will be amazed at how it can calm your mind and emotions.

For all the many benefits yoga has to offer the body, it was primarily designed to still the mind. It is only when the mind is quiet that we truly find peace.

The ancient yogis knew we could not keep a quiet mind whilst the body was in pain (negative emotions eventually lead to physical ailments).

The yoga poses (asana) were designed to strengthen,  heal and soothe the body. The poses also act as a distraction for the mind.

The mind cannot participate in negative mind chatter when it is focused on overcoming an obstacle, such as a challenging yoga pose.

Yoga also teaches us to control the breath either through dynamic yoga (flowing in and out of postures), or through pranayama (regulation of breath though certain techniques and exercises).

Not only are the different yogic breathing techniques energizing and uplifting, they are also calming, relaxing and rejuvenating.

From an Empath perspective, yoga breathing (pranayama) also helps block  the negative energy of others, which helps build a powerful aura and protects against psychic attack and leaky aura syndrome.

In challenging times, yoga and the yogic breathing systems are a blessing to the Empath and should be part of every Empath’s life.

Below is a list of breathing exercises and links to their demonstrations on YouTube. But if you want an incredibly easy relaxation technique click here to get you started.

Nadi Shodhana (alternate nostril breathing) is a technique that quietens the mind and blisses you out. It is great to do before bedtime, especially if you have a wired, monkey mind. It also balances masculine and feminine energies within the body. For an instructional video click here.

Kapalbhati (bellows breath) a brilliant energizing breathing technique that also works and strengthens the core stomach muscles. It is best to do in the morning (always on an empty stomach), or when one needs a quick energy boost. It is a fabulous practice for eliminating excess emotions held around the solar plexus area (seat of emotions). After performing a few rounds of  kapalbhati, you are left with a quiet, yet energised, mind. For an instructional video click here.

 Ujayi (victorious breath) is commonly used within yogic asana practise to create heat within the body. It keeps the mind focused and helps remove toxins. I find this technique great to use when in places such as supermarkets, where there are lots different ‘people’ energies swirling round. Ujayi helps block out any incoming energies and keeps you centred . For instructional video click here

Dynamic Asana Practice: This is a flowing yoga practice that moves with the breath. Instead of holding poses static, for a certain length of time, you move in and out of the postures with the rhythm of your breathing. Again, brilliant for quietening the busy Empath mind, but also great for alleviating tension, and building strength and flexibility within the body. (I have not attached a link to this as it’s best to learn under a qualified instructor).

To reap the greatest benefits of any yoga breathing techniques you should try to practise every day, if only for 5 minutes. Any yogic breathing system should be approached gradually. When first attempted they may cause dizziness or sometimes anxiousness. This, however, quickly passes so don’t be put off.

Hope this helps on your Empath journey.

  1. Thank you for this, very helpful reminders and information. I have a wonderful imagination, but sometimes darkness sets in, and the stress comes flooding. Definitely affects me biologically. Learning to just see things as thoughts and not attaching to them + other techniques has been very helpful. But I find it most helpful when I cultivate and reconnect to my soul.. my heart space. The Source 🙂

    Thanks again!

  2. Thank you so much for this. I found this to help in more ways than one. I struggle and I feel, and I feel, and I feel. I’m tired of feeling some days. I am planning on trying all the advice you’ve given and I pray I can find some peace with my abilities.
    As I can heal others, I wish I could lay my hands on myself and heal. Maybe this is what will help.
    I am looking for a guide, so if you know of anyone who is willing to help a girl out. Please let me know

  4. I read your artcle and felt a resonance with the plight of an empath.. I recognized so many things in you words. Being sensitive to other’s moods for ex and not wanting to buy used stuff. Also being able to feel in ones own body what other’s feel. Talking to animals and feeling their illnesses. it can be a cruel world to an empathic person. I have learned to bless everything in the name of God. That’s how I get along.
