Modern life often brings daily challenges for an Empath. If it’s not dealing with their own ‘issues’, it’s picking up on the pained emotions of people or the collective energy of the masses.
It may look like there is no way to get away from the challenges life throws. Especially when it seems that when one hurdle is jumped, another appears.
But all Empaths have an Inner Guidance (IG), that they can depend on to guide them through the challenging times, but it helps to recognize its many signals.
Your IG is heard in the quiet guiding voice that whispers to you when you’re troubled. It is sensed in strong gut-sensations and intuitive notions. When you listen, your IG will guide you through life.
When in tune with your inner guidance, Empath life becomes smoother sailing. But the downside to this guidance is it is easily manipulated by external energy or by internal chemical imbalances (caused by chakra or endocrine imbalance). In particular, anything that lowers your vibration, such as low-level energy, a poor diet, chemicals or stimulants can affect its clarity.
To use and fully trust your IG, it helps to have a quiet mind and a balanced body.
If you have been regularly experiencing negative bodily or emotional reactions, it is a good sign that something is off and changes need to be made.
I mentioned in my last post that sensitivities are on the rise for many people (and not just the Empaths) in the form of allergies, intolerances, negative emotional responses and depression. These are clear signs that something is amiss.
For years, many Awakened people have endured varying ascension symptoms that come and go without any distinguishing triggers. But now things are different. The reactions are becoming more intrusive, both physically and mentally, and are revealing the imbalances in either the body, mind or spirit.
The problem is, many people, Empaths included, tend to focus on either the development of spiritual or physical self, but not both at the same time. They may pray, meditate or chant for hours each day and spend every waking moment wondering how they could serve others, but do no exercise, smoke twenty cigarettes a day and eat nothing but processed food. Or they may go to the other extreme of exercising two to three hours a day and are fastidious about what they eat, but have no ethical or spiritual practice.
If you are to find complete balance and harmony, you need to have the mind, body and spirit in unison.
The body is home to our spirit, or soul, which is our true eternal-self. The soul carries all life experiences and knowledge and is the only thing we get to take with us when we leave this body. Generally, when we have found balance in body and mind, and strive to live an honest life, our soul is at peace. Ignore its promptings, however, and life becomes more difficult.
If you read my posts you may have noticed I am a massive advocate for taking self-responsibility. It is my belief that if we want to see change we have to make change. We hold all the answers we need.
We may each have teachers who plant seeds of knowledge and offer us clues about which direction we should be going in life, but it is up to each of us to do it for ourselves, and decide what is or isn’t right for us.
It is easy to become dependant on another’s teachings or words of wisdom. But everyone is an individual and each life journey should be a reflection of this.
You may have access to a wealth of external information but the real answers lie within. You hold the key to your own happiness and freedom, but you only find it by following your inner guidance.
In these trying times it is too easy to get distracted by the craziness of the world and forget what this game of ‘Life’ is really all about. Evolving!
If you want to find ways to help you tune into your inner guidance and live a more fulfilled life, you may want to read 7 Secrets of the Sensitive. It is filled with information to help the Empath find balance and live an empowered life.
As a side note: if you are struggling emotionally, with no obvious trigger, if you feel like you’ve lost your faith in everything, or if you are completely frustrated with what’s going on in the world, you may find it helpful to read up on Near Death Experiences (NDEs) or Past Life Regression. This kind of material gives a much-needed reality check and puts life back into perspective. I recommend anything by Raymond Moody for NDE’s and Brian Weiss for Past Life Regression.
Hope this helps on Your Empath journey.
Until next time…
