Summer Solstice, The Strawberry Moon and Empath Power

This Monday 20th June 2016 befalls a rather special occurrence… The summer solstice.

summer solstice

The summer solstice has long-since been noted as a magical day with a time-honored history of celebrations. This year’s solstice comes with an extra bonus of being a full moon. The last time this occurred was 70 years ago.

There are not many who have ever experienced a celestial event of this magnitude. Having a full Strawberry Moon on the same day as a summer solstice is a truly rare event.

The full moon in June is known as the Full Strawberry Moon because it is the time of year to harvest ripening fruit, which also coincides with the strawberry season.

If you are sensitive to the energy of full moons and/or solstices, this one will surely pack a magical punch. It is a great time to set your intentions for the year ahead and wonderful period to spend in contemplation and meditation (and to spend as much time as you can in nature) to experience the full magnificence of this occasion.

Empath Power

Empath Power, the book, has now been released. I timed the release to coincide with this magical solstice weekend. It is available in both paperback and eBook versions. Here is a snippet of what it entails:

Empat PowerThere are some major changes happening on the planet affecting Empaths on many levels. These changes bring pain, emotional disruptions, repetitive, negative thought patterns and physical distress.

If you often feel overwhelmed and overloaded by all you have to process during these turbulent times Empath Power is for you. 

As an Empath you are one of life’s game changers! It is imperative you stay grounded, protected and healthy during these testing periods and this book is your guide to show you how!

Clear Your Empath Emotions with Tapping

EFT Acupressure points

You have probably heard about the emotional freedom technique (EFT), known as Tapping, but did you know it could help balance your Empath emotions?

The premise of EFT is that by tapping certain acupressure/meridian points on the face and body it releases blocked energy and suppressed emotions. Tapping is also known to help with addictions, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety and for calming persistent thoughts.

The concept of Tapping was derived from the Eastern medicinal systems of acupuncture and acupressure. Both of which use the body’s meridian points to aid in healing. It is claimed that by tapping the acupressure points, with your fingertips, it activates your body’s innate healing power.

For those Empaths who dislike meditation this may be an excellent alternative!

The repetitious practice of Tapping is meditative. Any meditative practice, which stills an Empath’s busy mind and calms their emotions, is of value. Just like meditation, Tapping is a practice one has to build to see the best results. It is said that EFT can calm, and heal, the most powerful of emotions or emotional memories.

It will always be beneficial for the evolving Empath to try new ways of staying in balance.  When you stay in control of your thoughts and emotions it allows you to live happily and without restriction in your own little corner of the world. And for this reason, it is worth giving EFT a try.

Still the Empath Mind with Ancient Yoga Techniques

Empaths often spend years trying to get in control of their emotions. It is after all their emotions that determine their levels of happiness. But one thing many turn away from, in their pursuit of balance, is yoga. This is unfortunate as there are many yoga techniques that work brilliantly for stilling the Empath mind, and  their emotions, which in turn helps build a strong energy field.

The mind is incredibly powerful. Most are unaware of just how much it shapes their world. When you don’t have control of it, your mind will shape a reality plucked straight from your worst nightmare.

Many illnesses, born from stress, fear or anger,  start in the mind. But the mind also has the power to heal them. In some cases, in an instant.

You may have heard about this in the placebo effect. For example:  when testing the effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs, trials are often done on 2 test groups. One group are given the real drug being tested, and the others a fake (placebo). There are many cases when those given the placebo healed from their ailments. Their mind believed it was given the authentic drug and it set into motion the healing process.

There are also cases where groups of volunteers were given placebo operations for things such as knee or hip injuries. A placebo operation is where the volunteer is anesthetized but only an incision is made on the place of injury, and nothing more. This gives the patient the belief they had had the procedure.   And the mind, believing the injury has repaired, instructs the body to heal.

Every Empath eventually comes to understand the power of their mind. It is capable of creating such beauty but also the worst type of inner turmoil. Especially when thoughts are on overdrive. The mind could speed up your heart rate just by envisaging a scary scenario, or make you angry by pondering an injustice. The more innovative the mind the more possibilities. One can only imagine what damage is done, within the body, by those who have creative imaginations. And guess who own incredibly creative imaginations…? Yup, the Empaths.

An Empath can sit for hours happily staring into space with just their thoughts for entertainment. Whilst this is a lovely past time, when thoughts are happy and positive, it is not so much when they are dark, and brooding.

Happy thoughts uplift, inspire, balance and nourish the body and mind. The opposite is true for turbulently-vexed thoughts. They negatively impact the body and create angst within the solar plexus (mid-stomach area). Because thoughts feed emotions and emotions feed thoughts, negative thought patterns become an encumbering repetitive cycle for many Empaths.

When Empaths pick up the emotions, or thoughts, of those around them, they often claim them as their own. Before they know what’s hit them, the Empath is caught up in a tornado of torrid, angry thoughts that don’t belong to them.

The mind has its own way of interpreting energy. Sometimes it makes it into a story and sometimes it makes one feel physically ill or drained. Our own programs decide how we read energy. When I say programs, I mean our lineage and personal history. We inherit more than just our physical appearance. 

You may have a different personality than your grandparents, parents or siblings but as you are made from the same stuff there is a likelihood you will carry similar emotional debris, beliefs and insecurities (which becomes your programing).  Your personal history is an accumulation of the events that happened throughout your life, good and bad. Both factors determine how your programs run and thus how you show up in the world. But just because you run a particular program, doesn’t mean it can’t be changed. 

If you find negative emotions are ruling your life now is the time to set a new program. This means taking control of your mind. If this is something you would like to do then my recommendation is to start practicing some type of yoga technique.

In my quest to quieten my mind and heal my body, over the years, I tried many things, but the one constant I have always come back to is yoga and the many branches thereof. After years of study and practice I have a greater insight into the roots of yoga and an understanding why it is such an incredible elixir to the Empath.

Yoga has been around for thousands of years and originated in India. For all the many benefits yoga has to offer the body, it was primarily designed to still the mind. It is only when the mind is quiet that we truly find peace.

The ancient yogis knew you could not keep a quiet mind with a body in pain. The yoga poses (asana) were designed to strengthen,  heal and soothe the body. The poses also act as a distraction for the mind. It stands to reason that when the mind is focused on overcoming an obstacle, such as a challenging yoga pose, it cannot be filled with riotous thoughts.

Yoga also teaches us to control the breath either through dynamic yoga (flowing in and out of postures), or through pranayama (regulation of breath though certain techniques and exercises).

Not only are the different yogic breathing techniques energizing and uplifting, they are also calming, relaxing and rejuvenating. From an Empath perspective, pranayama also helps block  the negative energy of others and helps build more powerful energy field (aura) which, amongst other things, protects against psychic attack and other low thought forms.

In these challenging times, yoga and the yogic breathing systems are a blessing to the Empath and should be part of every Empath’s life.

Below is a list of breathing exercises and links to their demonstrations on YouTube.

Nadi Shodhana (alternate nostril breathing) is a technique that quietens the mind and blisses you out. It is great to do before bedtime, especially if you have a wired, monkey mind. It also balances masculine and feminine energies within the body. For an instructional video click here.

Kapalbhati (bellows breath) a brilliant energizing breathing technique that also works and strengthens the core stomach muscles. It is best to do in the morning (always on an empty stomach), or when one needs a quick energy boost. It is a fabulous practice for eliminating excess emotions held around the solar plexus area (seat of emotions). After performing a few rounds of  kapalbhati, you are left with a quiet, yet energised, mind. For an instructional video click here.

 Ujayi (victorious breath) is commonly used within yogic asana practise to create heat within the body. It keeps the mind focused and helps remove toxins. I find this technique great to use when in places such as supermarkets, where there are lots different ‘people’ energies swirling round. Ujayi helps block out any incoming energies and keeps you centred . For instructional video click here

Dynamic Asana Practice: This is a flowing yoga practice that moves with the breath. Instead of holding poses static, for a certain length of time, you move in and out of the postures with the rhythm of your breathing. Again, brilliant for quietening the busy Empath mind, but also great for alleviating tension, and building strength and flexibility within the body. (I have not attached a link to this as it’s best to learn under a qualified instructor).

To reap the greatest benefits of any yoga breathing techniques you should try to practise every day, if only for 5 minutes. Any yogic breathing system should be approached gradually. When first attempted they may cause dizziness or sometimes anxiousness. This, however, quickly passes so don’t be put off.

Hope this helps on your Empath journey.
