Empower the Empath Mind

When you don’t have control of your thoughts they can shape your life into something you don’t want. Thoughts create reality. 

Thoughts are so powerful that they can cause disease. Many illnesses are born from repetitive negative thinking. Because Empaths are ‘big thinkers’ they may be at a higher risk. 

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, it is 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.

Also, when an Empath picks up the emotions from those around them, they often claim them as their own. Therefore, their thoughts are not only influenced by their own creative mind but by the energy of others. 

If you find negative emotions, stirred up by overbearing thoughts, are ruling your life, now is the time to take back control. There is a great way to do this through yoga breathing techniques. 

For all the many benefits yoga has to offer the body, it was primarily designed to still the mind. Because 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 or mind was in pain (negative emotions eventually lead to physical ailments). Yoga poses (asana) were designed to strengthen,  heal and soothe the body, and also to 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), they both act like a magic pill for calming negative thoughts.

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

For an Empath, yoga breathing (pranayama) also helps lessen the impact of  the negative energy of others. They also help build a powerful aura, which protect against psychic attack and leaky aura syndrome.

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

Below is a list of breathing exercises and links to their demonstrations on YouTube. 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.
