Can You Feel It?


Don’t you love the energy of a new year? Just today I felt a real shift in the way the energy feels. It’s like there’s a freshness all around and an upbeat vibe drifting through the air.

 It’s as though positive intentions are ramping up, as ideas for fresh starts are being put into place all around.

I was away for Christmas, in the Caribbean, so I missed a lot of the Xmas madness. I got back on the 28th, and there was still a real stressed-out energy lingering. It wasn’t very nice to come back to. Even my husband found the energy dark and stressful, which made him a little grumpy. (My Empath ways have shown up in him more in recent years and he has become much more in tune with the energy of others.)

It’s only today that I’ve felt the sludgy Christmas energy lift… Can you feel it too?

It never ceases to amaze me how one day can make such a difference to the way the collective energy feels. Today my environment feels calm and uplifted and, because of that, so do I.

Christmas isn’t a rest for most people and it certainly isn’t relaxing. Much of the festive period is spent drinking too much, eating crap, and burning the candle at both ends. It’s also stressfully busy. This is why many Empaths find it a difficult time of year (even if they like the tradition of the festive season).

As well as feeling the emotions of individuals, Empaths also feel collective stress, and no matter how well we look after ourselves, the month of December can be a trying time because there is so much stress energy around. This is why January comes as such a welcome relief.

I love the energy of new beginnings and new intentions. January is a fresh start for everyone. We get the chance to wipe the slate clean and set new goals for the year ahead. It feels uplifting and liberating.

I’m not sure yet what my intentions are for this year; other than to have more fun and listen to more music. I often forget how uplifting music is. Especially the tunes that I love. It’s such an easy way to get a quick pick-me-up. But, because I like to work in silence, I don’t tend to listen to music much, other than at the gym.

And fun. Life seems so serious these days. I love laughing and having a good time, but I am often so focused on living or working to stay in balance as an Empath that I forget life is also about having fun.

Laughter is the perfect way to release the feel-good endorphins, which helps wash away everyday stress and the energy of others. Laughing really does keep us young and in good spirits. I think I have just convinced myself even more that this year I intend to find more time for fun… Watch this space.

What about you? Have you got any plans or goals for this year? Feel free to share them in the comments below.

Ok, that’s it for today. Just a quick post to comment on the energy shift.

Until next time.

  1. I have just started semi-blogging again or trying to. I have a few blogs. LOL. I was looking for some blogs by other empaths. I only discovered what an empath was in the last year or so after a friend told me she thought I was an empath. I am trying to connect and read more from other people. I have had my own spiritual life with my spirt guides for 20+ years but have only recently heard the term empath. Read the book by Judith Orloff and I am just in general trying to connect and read blogs from other people like me. I am totally into New Years and new energy. Going to try to follow your blog. ❤ I stumbled across it and you have some really good posts.

      • Thanks! I do too many things. LOL. I really like your posts. How long have you known you were an empath? I wish I had read about this years ago. Your blog is awesome!

      • I was in my thirties when I first found out I was an Empath. I’m not exactly sure which year, so it’s been a while (I’m now inching closer to fifty). It was after listening to an interview with Judith Orloff that I had my lightbulb moment, and everything about how I felt made sense. 🙂

  2. The holidays are certainly stressful and I have opted out to even celebrate as I need that energy just to make sure I’m not taking on stress from all around me. I work in retail so I am constanfly surrounded by crowds carrying all sorts of energy. The thing I’ve found helps me is my music, and I always carry my headset with me to block out the noise.

    But speaking of Yesterday when this was posted I felt exactly the opposite of what you described. I have a few important decision to make moving forward with this year, about how to remove some negativity from my life so I can make room for growth. Today however as I reflect on yesterday’s thought process, I feel the uplifting energy as some things have been made more clear to me.

    Plans and goals this year is to reignite an online business and create more financial freedom, and remove myself from a stressful retail environment.. that’s not a good place for me.

    Thank you for your posts 🙂

  3. speaking of laughter and how good it is to have some levity in our lives, I will be holding a class in laughter at my assisted living facility starting next month. hope to get those happy vibes floating around to make 2019 a year filled with smiles and happy hearts..
