On my post ‘At a Glance 30 Traits of an Empath’ there is one trait that has caused some controversy over the years and that is:
Trait 28 Will not choose to buy antiques, vintage or second-hand.
Anything that’s been pre-owned carries the energy of the previous owner. An Empath may even prefer to have a brand new car or house (if they are in the financial situation to do so) with no residual energy.
Many people wrongly assume the reason number 28 is on the list is because antiques hold negative energy. Anything pre-owned can carry negative or positive energy but this is not the reason it is on the list.
It is not unusual for antiques to be revered for their beauty and historical value. They are highly prized possessions. Even those not of a Sensitive nature will love to feel the energy and sense the history behind an antique.
However, for some Empaths being around antiques, or anything previously owned, can make them feel uncomfortable. They have a strong aversion to them but cannot put their finger on why.
So why does this happen?
Anything that has been pre-owned has an energetic imprint and carries the energy of the previous owner, or owners, in the way of residual energy.
Residual energy is like an imprint from the past that lingers into the future.
To some, this residual energy can feel crowded or cluttered and, as many Empaths abhor clutter and crowding (See post) they may feel a natural aversion or repulsion to second-hand items without really knowing why.
Residual clutter equates to stagnated energy and can be extremely draining to the body and mind of the Sensitive person. And this includes clutter the eye cannot see.
Most types of clutter can have a debilitating effect on the Empath. It creates a sense of overcrowding in one’s own energy field, and can deplete physical energy levels, causing feelings of sluggishness, apathy and an uninspired mind.
‘Too much residual energy leads to a cluttered mind and energy field’
If you are one who has a natural aversion to antiques, old properties or anything second-hand, now you know why.
But, as with anything in life there are always exceptions.
All Empaths have varying levels of Sensitivities. Some will be affected more by residual energy than others. There are many who dislike anything new or mass-produced (especially if the items were produced under poor conditions) and love being round antiques or previously owned items.
We may all be Sensitive but we still have our differences and ways that are unique to us.
