The Crossroads of Empath Change: Unplugging from Hysteria

Photo by Rafael Barros on

You would have to live deep underground to not have noticed the crazy happenings in society.

Almost everyone has been affected in some way or the other by the engulfing mass hysteria that has swept the world.

It is easy to believe most of the craziness is politically fuelled; yet it is my belief, the real reason goes deeper than that.

The world is not a happy place.

The masses are angry and afraid.

Dogmatism and cognitive dissonance is rife. Freedom of speech, freedom of thought and individuality are being suppressed. And the energy of hate is skyrocketing.

People are being silenced. Most are now too scared to speak out about their true beliefs for the fear of being labelled as sexist, stupid, a conspiracy theorist, a racist, or not politically correct.

It certainly feels like all humans are being manipulated to turn on each other. This is not a recent thing. It has been building for a while and will likely continue for many years to come.

We live in a world going through the quickening of change.

These changes are causing trauma, chaos, emotional pain, depression and more.

Although trauma and upheaval may be considered as emotionally damaging, it can lead to growth and spiritual awareness… if we allow it.

Trauma is the first step we take across the tempestuous waters of awakening. Pain is a prelude to birth.

For some, the initial stages of awakening are seen in random behaviours. Two of these being: denial and blame. In the years to come, you will see this behaviour escalating everywhere. People pointing the finger of blame and convincing themselves their problems lie in the hands of another.

Most are so busy avoiding themselves, and instead lashing out at others, that they miss a unique opportunity for transformation.

Suffering is part of the ‘wake-up call’. People far and wide are hearing the sirens of the awakening, and call to change, but it is their choice how the transition goes.

We can choose to wake-up, evolve and grow, or we can choose to stay in denial.

Denial is the ‘seemingly’ comfortable ‘safe’ passage. At least for a while. But it really just prolongs discomfort.

We can’t ignore evolution forever. If we try, things eventually become so bad that we are forced to change.

All humans are presently being fed fuel to stoke up their raging emotions of anger, bitterness and hate. If we engage them, these types of emotions keep us trapped in mental conflict and away from finding peace and harmony.

Evil begets evil. Hate breeds hate. Anger feeds anger. Fear fuels fear. The more of this type of energy people put out into the world the more it grows.

We all have light and darkness within; both love and hate. Whichever we choose to give the most attention to will be the force that guides our feelings, thoughts and choices. Choose wisely. We are the creators of our own reality.

Strange Things Afoot

It is clear there are some seriously strange things happening in the world. (If you’ve read anything about the Mandela Effect you’ll know what I mean).

There is a lot of positive change happening and many truths are being revealed; but we are also being distracted to prevent us from discovering our own power.

Distraction is a powerful tool. When our mind is preoccupied with all the wrongs in the world, we don’t see what is right. And we don’t notice the powerful positive and uplifting energy that is all around us.

crossroads2We are at the crossroads of change. Being a crossroads means we have a choice of which direction to take. We can choose the path of denial and despair or the one of love and gratitude. That choice is often determined by where we place our focus.

You would think it’s a no brainer to choose the positive love energy. But the more people who focus and send out the hate/fear energy the more this builds and the harder it is not to become embroiled in.

For the Empaths, this low-level energy, that has swept the globe, is agonizing to experience. But it can also be perversely alluring; drawing us in without our realizing.

I too have been lured into engaging the distressing and emotionally provoking news, designed to distract, divide and enrage. And yes, I get wound up by it all. I keep having to remind myself to unplug and stay switched off from it. I know I am wasting my time and precious energy by allowing myself to be distracted.

Some might argue that we have a duty to stay informed, we should fight for our rights and silence is consent. And, as much as I may agree, most of what we are being fed is shameful propaganda, which does nothing but feed our darkest emotions and pains the soul.

When we focus on the incredible force of gratitude and love, it is a game changer. We then see more and more positive come into our life through the law of attraction.

By not giving our attention to anything which feeds negative emotions, we free ourselves

Choosing to stay unplugged is the best form of protection at this time. Especially if you are badly affected by all the hysterical energy.

Here are some excellent ways to stay unplugged and keep your energy vibrant:

  • Stay away from the media: Online news, social media and televised news reports can lure you into negative thinking, frustration and anger.
  • Avoid politics: Don’t get involved in dogmatic discussions and avoid those who seem to thrive when politically venting.
  • Steer clear of large groups of people or protests: Mass hysteria is contagious and drags everyone in, even those with the best intentions.
  • Pursue your passions: Do what you love and be creative as often as you can (your own form of distraction).
  • Express gratitude every day throughout the day: Be grateful for anything you can. A delicious meal, a good book or film, or just the traffic lights being on green. Keep pumping this positive energy out.
  • Keep control of the mind: Meditate or do moving meditations like yoga, Thai-chi or dance.
  • Get outdoors: Spend as much time in nature as possible and bask in natural sunlight.

Pain serves us in mysterious ways. We eventually come to a point when we understand why we endured all we have, and we recognize how our pain shaped and changed us for the better. But we don’t need to keep experiencing it over and over. We have a choice. Now is the time to start shaping your new reality by unplugging from the old.

Until next time.

  1. Recently discovered your writing when I looked up empath. It has been very enlightening. I thank you for sharing. I am curious if you have written anything about good career choices for empaths. I am struggling with finding a career path that does not take my energy. Thanks again.

  2. Diane, you speak from a place of truth. You are 100% correct about what is happening with our society. People are really angry. Most certainly in denial. I have seen this in my personal life.
    I feel much will be exposed in the next three years. as we are so concerned about other races, religions, sexual preferences, we will realize that no one should be judged on anything as that person can save your life or the life of your loved ones.

  3. I am suffering greatly right now and I struggling to see a way out of it. My husband of 20 years moved out in May and I cannot come to terms with it as I feel he and I are sole mates and he is not open to working on things. He has since engaged with some other woman as well and I am in a deep depression which I cannot seem to shake. I have two beautiful little girls that I love more than anything and I want to be here for them but I can’t bear the heaviness of my life and my feelings right now. I feel I have been completely depleted and I don’t know how to regain energy as my husband has always been my key to feeling good or not feeling good. I’m at a loss and I just don’t understand what is happening or how to see things. I feel he has gone crazy and like I don’t know him. I want to let go for my own well being but I don’t want to because I feel in my heart and soul that we are supposed to be together. I feel as though I’m going crazy and I’m scared and alone.

    • Oh Miranda, I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. I can feel your pain.

      I have seen this type of behaviour in both men and women in recent years: Acting out-of-character and doing heartless, shameful things to those they love without so much as batting an eyelid (always seen worse between the ages of 40 to 55 stage of the mid-life crisis where the hormones start to shift and change). In their own mind they have justified this behaviour and do not question it. They can display narcissistic behaviours, even if they would never have been classed as a narcissist before.

      I believe it’s a form of denial and resistance to what is happening to us all, energetically. In their bid to escape what they are feeling they either lash-out or run-away to someone or something that acts as a distraction. They do not know how to handle what is happening to them so they seek out ways to bury their pain (drugs, alcohol, gambling, affairs, etc.) It does not normally end well when people try to avoid their truth and bury their pain.

      We all have to face ourselves and make the necessary changes to mind, body and spirit for us to evolve.
      I know you are not the only one who is going through this hurt. Always know you are not alone. You have got incredible inner-strength. This is a time when you need to tune into your own intuition and heart (and not into fear).

      If you believe in your heart that you are meant to be together, fighting, getting angry, being overly emotional or showing him your pain will not get him to see your light or see his errors, he will just stay closed-down and in denial. The answer is always in love.

      Hope this helps a little. 🙂

  4. Good post – BUT – Tony Robbins is not the real deal, unfortunately, but a scammer pretending to be the real deal.

    ‘Last year Tony Robbins produced a frauduct with the Internet Marketing Syndicate :: my least favorite group of a**** :: called The New Money Masters Series. It’s still being sold on Robbins’ website …’

    ‘The Syndicate is a cartel at the center of the get rich quick world of Internet Marketing. Each of the members tries to pass himself off as a freewheeling entrepreneur. An individual rising above :: a rogue :: fighting back against the workaday ways of our corpo-centric suburbanized society. Each sells a version of this easy freedom in a bottle to seekers … the sadder the seeker … the better. But the dream :: like the cake :: is a lie. ‘

  5. Diane-
    Your wisdom is a counterpoint to the hysteria. I have felt the fabric of life has been ripped open. I’m not convinced it’s a bad thing, but it is disturbing. It makes it challenging to maintain an open heart. Perhaps we are being challenged to accept the darkness that resides in each of us. I keep a partial ear open to the madness swirling around while mostly enjoying the wonders the world offers us. The energetic connection between those listening to other voices, I believe, is growing. Thank you.

  6. Yes, love this Diane! This just confirms to me what I have been thinking and feeling about the world in general. I believe in getting the facts in any debate and standing for the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it is. Once you know the truth of things, it is easier to make informed decisions about your life and how to help those around us. I’m afraid that the media no longer serves us but it serves political or corporate interests. I believe in helping to uplift and heal those around us. Yes to positive vibes, thoughts and energy!! I am trying to steer clear of negativity in my music, reading, etc. Reading this article has just confirmed for me that I am on the right track. Thank you!!

  7. I think this is where empaths come in; to help spread light over the darkness. You stand on the outside of the emotions & send in healing energy. Isn’t that what empaths do, transform energy? Humanity is in trouble & politics was the vehicle that shined the black light on the problems. Maybe that’s why we’re all here right now, to help with this transition.
