Practicing meditation is essential for developing Empath intuition!
Meditation is one of the most powerful tools an Empath can use for their personal growth. A committed daily practice serves in many ways. It strengthens the mind, body and spirit ad builds a powerful shield of protection.
Meditation also opens up the Empath’s intuition like nothing else.
Strong intuition requires a clean and clear mind. A cluttered, thought-filled mind will do nothing to help you grow or develop your Empath abilities.
Thoughts are addictive and difficult to break free from. However, when the mind is reset, through meditation, you can switch them off far easier.
When you have clarity of thought and a lucid mind, magical things happen.
Not only does meditation build intuition it also reprogrammes the brain into being able to better deal with negativity. This enables you to deal with the onslaught of thoughts, energy and emotions picked up from others.
Negative thoughts are destructive to health and wellbeing, especially when they are repetitive, and prevent the Empath from accessing their powerful intuition.
Empaths spend a lot of time in their heads. Which is great when thoughts are creative, happy or enlightening. However, spend too much time around certain people, or in certain places, and the happy thoughts quickly turn into painful memories, anger or thoughts of being wronged. This is why some type of meditation is crucial for the Empath.
Most Empaths find meditation incredibly difficult to get into because of their creative and over-active mind.
Perseverance is all that is needed.
Starting with a five-minute practice and building up into twenty to thirty minutes will reap incredible benefits.
I believe the best way to meditate is with an erect spine, either sitting in a straight-backed chair or in a comfy cross-legged or kneeling position on the floor. Keeping the spine straight and upright allows the energy to flow up and down and the breath to be calm.
There are some who will say lying down is a perfectly acceptable way to meditate, which it is but it is too easy to fall asleep when lying down and the opportunity to consciously quieten the mind is lost. Just make sure you feel comfortable before you start.
Regular meditation helps clear the mind of thoughts, fact! But thoughts always put up a big fight to stay centre stage. When you try to quieten the mind, the monkey living in your head is activated. Jumping from one random thought to another, the monkey mind is a challenge to still and for some it takes much more effort than for others (my monkey mind is like a hyperactive sugar-driven wild child).
It is at the point when they are about to make a breakthrough in meditation that many people give up, citing it as being too difficult. Yes, it is often difficult in the initial stages but nothing good comes easily.
Transformation does not happen over night, but it does not take long for you to see how a regular meditation practice is totally transformative and a fast-tracked way to developing greater intuition.
To see what amazing transformations are to be had by practicing meditation, set yourself a four-week challenge and allot an amount of time each day to practice.
I find mornings are easiest. Get up ten to twenty minutes earlier and start with five minutes meditation then gradually build up.
If you are on a time limit set a gentle alarm. It is amazing how quickly time will go once you are enveloped in your private mind sanctuary.
If you find meditation difficult it is always best to use a guided meditation until you have more control of your mind and thoughts. There are hundreds to choose from on YouTube. I have included one above and one at the bottom of the post, just to get you started (using earphones is always best with the guided mediations).
Before you start any guided meditation make sure you are compatible with the narrator’s voice. If you do not find the voice soothing then you may get irritated by it during the meditation, which is a distraction. Oh an make sure you won’t be disturbed.
If you haven’t already, be sure to like my new Facebook page (link on the top right). I post there articles I come across that I find of interest and think maybe beneficial to my fellow Empaths, as well as inspiring quotes.
Until next time…
