10 Ways Empaths can Protect Themselves from Other People’s Energy

pexels-photo-708392.jpegIf you are an Empath you will already know that being in public places can be a traumatizing affair. Simply nipping to the shopping mall can mean you end up ‘wearing’ someone else’s energy for the rest of the day. Which isn’t such a bad thing if the energy is positive and highly charged. But it is mostly the not-so-nice energy that follows you home.

On my journey as an Empath, I have found the best way to stay protected, when out in public places, is to either take preëmptive measures before leaving home or use energy balancing techniques as and when needed.

As all Empaths are different, what works for one might not work for another. And depending on the circumstances you might need to use different techniques for different situations… or several techniques all at once.

Here are some of the most effective and easy protective techniques you can use before, during or after crowd exposure:

1. Salt:

Most already know of the amazing healing properties of salt. It clears negative energies and helps protect you from absorbing them (see here). By adding it to you bath or using salt as a body scrub before and after venturing into peopled places it helps keep you protected from unwanted energy (it also helps keep your skin silky smooth and in tiptop condition). For best results, chose unrefined organic salt. Pink Himalayan rock salt is best.

2. Crystals:

Crystals offer protection from all types of negative or unstable energy. They also have the ability to speed up the Auric field and protect from electro-magnetic energy. Use the crystals you most resonate with. Carry them with you when you go out: pop them in your pocket, in your socks or keep them in your bag (make sure you connect with their energy first and that they have been cleansed). Some good choices are any of the quartz crystals or dark grounding stones such as Haematite. (read more here)

3. Yoga:

A short daily yoga practice is a powerful protective tool for the Empath. Amongst many other amazing benefits, yoga helps balance and build the energy body which in turn acts as an invisible shield. A strong energy field (aura) helps keep other people’s energy out. A weakened energy field becomes leaky and allows too much energy in (read more here).

4. Singing:

Yes, this may seem bonkers but it works! Sound affects us on many levels energetically. Yogis have used sound for thousands of years (chanting/song) because they know of its incredible cleansing and uplifting power. Singing raises your frequency, making negative energy bounce off. Try it when you feel an incoming energy storm and see how it changes your vibration.

5. Mirrored Energy Ball of Light:

Surrounding yourself in a healing ball of light (in your mind’s eye) is a great way to protect yourself from the energy of others. Every morning see yourself engulfed in a huge vibrant mirrored ball of protection. Believe it’s there and know it is protecting you from the energy of others (great when used in conjunction with crystals).

6. Avoid Caffeine:

Any kind of stimulant leaves the Empath wide open energetically. Too much coffee, for example, can leave you vulnerable to other people’s energy. If you cannot go without your coffee-fix, moderate your caffeine consumption and try to only drink decaf before, during and after being in people-packed places.

7. Breath-work:

The breath is a powerful tool that most of us take for granted. The way we feel can affect the way we breathe, as can the way we breathe affect the way we feel. Certain breathing techniques can work wonders, not only for the way we feel but also for protection to people’s’ energy. (For some fantastic techniques Click Here). Breath-work can be used pre and post exposure to people’s energy.

8. Essential Oils:

The power of essential oils has been known through the ages. As well as their amazing healing qualities, essential oils can help build a powerful energetic armour, they also have the ability to keep one relaxed and grounded when in peopled places (Read more here on some different oils and their benefits). As with crystals, choose the oil to resonate most. (My favourites are lavender, basil and frankincense.)

9. Close Your Eyes:

(For obvious reasons, this should only be done when it is safe to do.) By closing your eyes in noisy, highly charged peopled places it can protect you from the wayward energies you might normally find seeping into your energy field. It is doubly effective if you practice a breathing technique at the same time. This method switches off your external awareness and allows you to stay detached from the energy of others. Which in turn protects you from ‘wearing’ their energy.

10. Balance Your Hormones:

This isn’t so much as a protective technique, that can be done before leaving your home, but more of a lifestyle change. It is possibly the most important and most effective of all these techniques. And yes, this also applies to men.

Your hormones are directly linked to your chakras (see here), meaning they affect both your physical and energetic bodies.

If your hormones are out of whack you won’t be able to balance your own energy, never mind that of others. When your hormones and thus chakras are balanced you will enjoy a better quality of life as an Empath. And although you will still feel the energy and emotions of others you won’t be taken down by them.

‘7 Secrets of the Sensitive‘ goes into detail on how you can easily balance your hormones and chakras and thus enjoy total transformation and harmony in your life. It also reveals how to live happier, healthier lives and enables you to see this Empath life for the amazing gift it really is… 

Hope this helps on your journey of transformation.

Until next time..

  1. I am a very sensitive Empath and have discovered Black Tourmaline works excellent for me as an absorber of negative energy. If you decide to use crystals be sure to cleanse them weekly as they will absorb the negative energy you would have taken on yourself. I cleanse my Black Tourmaline simply by running under cold water for a few minutes. Try it and you will be rewarded. Crystal Blessing & Courage to All.

  2. One of my chores that I hate is grocery shopping. People always feel rushed and agitated just being there. They’re aggressive and they put off an energy that is angry and irritated. I have a huge line up of low tempo classical music on my phone. Before I even walk in the door and grab a cart, my earbuds are in and Ode to Joy is playing. It offers a remarkable shield for me.

  3. Thank you for this post. I have been doing large scale battle with bad energy and I need to scrub myself of all of the poison That I have absorbed. It is to the point where it is affecting my marriage and my day to day life. Winishi. If anyone has any other advice for my case please share. Bless you all and may you all be well. Much love.

  4. The Merkaba star shielding. I find no protection method works for me as I have so little faith, so full of fear & my aura is fragile & broken & I am terrible at visualising! 😦 But the Merkaba star does the best job. You can find more info on YouTube

    Another powerful method is invoking the Christ Light. You simply say:
    “I invoke the Gold ray of Christ for my total protection” X3 times & then say it is done. Archangel Michael’s (this one is highly effective a lot of times for me): ask AA Michael to put his dark blue cloak of protection around you. Then imagine the cloak being placed on you, zip it up (or ask AA Michael’s angels to do this for you) from under your feet to your lower lip, & pull the hood over your head, covering your third-eye.
    Whatever you believe in & FEEL working is the best method for you right now.
    Please note we can always call on our guides & Angels to protect & guide us. They’ll ALWAYS do so no matter who asks but we must surrender to our highest good with harmlessness.

  5. Hi
    I just wanted to say the mirror ball of Light is fab. I use it at night too as I end up badly affected by my partner’s energies. Thank you for the info!

  6. Oh I love this, thank you!
    If I do my morning yoga the day is soooo much easier. And the mirror around me works really well.
    Very good tools.
    love and light!
