Why Do Empaths So Often Feel Lost, Alone or Disconnected?

I’m sure you’ve noticed the roller-coaster of emotions being triggered, by the media, recently? And when I say recently I mean the past couple of years. It goes quiet for a while then wham, more stories suddenly arise that only serve to divide and cause conflict.

It seems the media is constantly guiding people into dark stressful places through their fear and anxiety-inducing stories.

As an Empath, whether you pay attention to all the propaganda or not, you will still be affected by the emotional energy it produces. It can be destructive.

In my opinion, the fear mongering is a tactic used to keep people in fear, controlled, distracted and divided. For the Empaths, however, it often creates feelings of isolation and disconnection.

Many years ago, when I started my junior hairdressing apprenticeship, we were given certain rules of what not to discuss with clients. The first rule was to hang up our problems with our coats in the morning. The second was to avoid, at all costs, discussions about politics or religion. We were told these two subjects were the worst for igniting angry disputes. At sixteen years old I didn’t think much of it, but now I see just how pertinent it was.

If there are two things that create conflict, division and hatred it is over zealous political opinions and religious beliefs. This is so clear in what we are seeing in all corners of the globe. It seems stories are being created just to create negative responses in the populace

When conflicts arise, both in the media and out on the streets, a blanket of massively contagious, dark energy is produced. When at it’s worse, even if you lived far underground it would be difficult to avoid this dismal energy.As I mentioned in my last post: negativity generates negativity. Negative emotions are contagious and are subliminally taken on even by those who aren’t Sensitive

People get swept along by the irrational, infectious moods being intentionally perpetuated. They breed and feed.  It is a form of gaslighting. And because the populace is continuously fed more reasons to become fearful, infuriated or dissatisfied, and very little to feel positive and cheerful about, low-level energy continues to escalate.

So, even if you pay little attention to the media and it’s propaganda, the murky energy stirred up leaves you feeling lost or alone.

Many Empaths find that mass produced dark energy seeps into the energy field, even whilst we sleep, and because it is so all encompassing affects us on many levels.

Its effects may show up as periods of lethargy, chronic fatigue, depression, and an absolute sense of disconnection. But too often the Empath blames these dark energies on their present life circumstances.

I have already written about this subject in recent months. But as it is a continuing theme I feel it is right to discuss it again, because the impact it has on an Empath is not pleasant.

Picking up on dark energy coming from the masses, is nothing short of exhausting. It is difficult to hide from even with the best intentions.

Living within a bubble of negative energy feeds one’s darker emotions. This keeps an Empath (and even those not of a Sensitive nature) from uncovering their true power. And if distracted from one’s true power one cannot find the peace, happiness and balance we are meant for.

Part of overcoming the low vibrational energy being contagiously projected into the world is to keep mind, body and spirit strong. Eat good food, exercise, stay grounded and keep clearing your energy field.

Also, if ever there was ever a time to keep your mind empowered now is it. A good way to do this, other than the aforementioned, is by focusing on all your strengths, staying positive and being grateful for the small things.

Look to find your hidden super powers and stay focused on them. Like attracts like.

What we focus our attention on grows. When we embrace our positive inner power, that power will grow. We then project out this positive vibrant energy out into the world.

Coming Soon: Be sure to keep an eye out for my post on leaky aura syndrome and why it is impacting so many Empaths.

Until next time…

  1. Hi Diane, I couldn’t agree more with what you’ve written. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and could feel myself being pulled down the rabbit hole of discontent which I find all too easy to slip down when I start to focus on all the negative people in my life, how they judge me, aka how I judge myself & how few people I have in my life anymore. I found the pull particularly strong because I can see the mechanism so clearly these days and have been very conscious of NOT letting myself go there, and NOT gaslighting myself. Its all so tricky and seductive because my mind can start to believe I’m doing healing work by looking at it again and doing some more autopsy work on it. But its not, its more smoke and mirrors.

    I was away camping for a couple of weeks and didn’t tune into news broadcasts, coming back and listening to them now all the agendas etc are quite clear to see, but still seductive and its also interesting that its the same mechanism that I use on myself. As above, so below…

    I found your article in my inbox this morning & want to say thanks. It helped me alot reading this with my coffee this morning, there are lots of us that get it now and tuning into each other is just so important because it can definitely feel lonely. Thanks again Diane.

  2. I was completely stunned as I read this superbly written work. Staying strong is very hard and my spirit drains quickly, yet with a connection like this and my absolute belief in a higher power I believe an empathic unity will blind the darkness that encroaches the planet, the animals know! I have been feeling a stronger pull towards light over dark as I find new people to communicate with( I only found out about being an empath five weeks ago and it has exploded my reasoning and judgement) which means for myself I am on the right path. I feel jolting energy pulsating through me only for it to disappear yet despite it all something big is coming and that will be our salvation. Join united and spread the energy of love and life as far as we can. I ask my spirit every night to afford the protection of the vulnerable and lost and every day I wake I read a bit of news that re-affirms my belief that we are joined with a link most of us do not understand. Please keep writing and posting as this helps lift my spirit and connect again. I am at my happiest when I give without the notion of receiving and sometimes people do not even realise which for me is better. There is a way, that I know! A fantastic piece of writing.
