Take Control of Your Emotions or Your Emotions Will Take Control of Your Life!

 

So here we are again, not long off another year-end, and what a year it’s been! I’m sure 2018 will always be remembered as the year of conflict and division. I know every year has its own crazy vibe, but this one seems particularly explosive with all the dark energy that’s been stirred up.

For those of us who are Empaths, it has certainly been a challenge to stay out of the angry clashing energy, fired up across the world, that has created a huge wave of all-consuming dark emotions!

To top it all off, we’ve arrived once more at the ‘Christmas silly season’. I know many Empaths struggle at this time of year (I was once one of them). All the rushed and stressed emotional energy, being produced by the masses, can prove to be nothing short of exhausting. Even when we stay tucked away, in our own little sanctuaries, the emotional energy is difficult to avoid. And the lack of sun/daylight in the northern hemisphere, means a lack of Vitamin D, and thus extra stress-related colds and flu to deal with.

So, it goes without saying that we all need to step it up at this time of year. We have to work that extra bit harder to stay grounded, balanced and in control of emotions. Which, as you may now be thinking, is not so easy to do. When feeling out-of-sorts from not only the ‘Christmas energy’ but all the other ‘stuff’ we’ve had to endure, working on self is often the last thing we have time or energy for.

I think you’ll agree; this year has gone from one level of trauma to another. The energies have switched from stress to anger to hate to fear to more stress. It’s obvious the populace is being distracted and divided with the intention of keeping us from finding our true-inner-power.

What I mean is, we are in a unique time where past issues are coming up to the surface to be resolved and healed for everyone. Not only in the way of karmic return but in calls to find balance of the body and mind (modern life puts a huge strain on our human bodies). This shows up in many ways: feeling constantly dissatisfied, suffering illness, anxiety, fear, anger and other strong emotions.  There are many other ways in which people receive their inner-calls to make changes and go within.

Instead of being able to address old wounds and or physical issues, as they arise, people are being given reasons to project their emotional pain on to others. Which only serves in keeping the pain alive.

When we are kept angry or distressed, by focusing on the world’s injustices or propaganda, it not only keeps us trapped in a negative mind-set but it stops us from taking the steps to face and heal any physical or emotional wounds that need attention. We then continuously draw back more reasons to feel emotionally low via the law of attraction.

For those Empaths who have already done much inner-work, it sometimes feels like we are being taken back several steps. It doesn’t help that feeling the emotional energy of the world, when it is so negatively charged, can be incredibly isolating.

As I mentioned in my last post, because of constant shifting energy, we need to keep swapping and changing our healing/grounding techniques. But at this time of year it is even more important. If we don’t take control of what we feel, the way we feel will control our life.

So, here I have some winter remedies that I hope will help:

Consciously Unplug

This is so important, even if it’s just for five minutes a day.  By consciously unplugging from all external distractions, it not only allows for a vibrational reset, it shifts our focus. Which helps us break the connection to the emotional energy of others, and allows us to tune into our higher-self.

By simply closing your eyes and focusing on your breath or doing some type of meditative practice, it works well to unplug.

One technique I like to use is the ‘magic triangle breath’.

This may sound strange, but in my mind’s eye I draw a triangle with my breath between my nose and third eye.

If you want to try it: Inhale through your left nostril (you can block the opposite nostril with thumb), taking the breath up to the third eye (centre of forehead), then on the exhale see your breath travel from the third eye down the right nostril and then back over to the left nostril. After a few breaths reverse the flow from right to left, and then keep alternating. (The power of the triangle can really be felt when performing this technique).

The image may help you get a better idea of what I mean (I apologize for the creepy face).

The above technique not only helps you unplug and re-centre, it also helps balance your masculine and feminine energy (learn more here).

Avoid Negative People

This is something I probably don’t need to remind you of, but I know how hard it is at this time of year. Work’s do’s, Xmas family get-togethers and the like, mean we end up spending time with those we wouldn’t normally. But if there’s one thing that can suck dry your last remnants of goodwill, its being around ‘negatives’ or ‘energy vampires’

Did you know, science has even acknowledged that by spending too much time around negative people it can influence health and happiness? There are many studies showing how prolonged ‘people stress’ alters gene expression within the immune system… Meaning: anyone can become sick just by hanging out with toxic people. So, for an Empath, who can wear another person’s emotional energy like a heavy winter coat, it’s double whammy!

So, what can we do to protect our health from people stress?

Well, an easy place to start is:

Eat Lots of Bright Coloured Food

Sadly, I’m not talking about Smarties and M&Ms. I’m talking real food.

By eating lots of lovely bright coloured fruit and veg, it ensures you get lots of vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes which ward off stress-related illnesses (especially colds and flu). If this is difficult, try taking a good range of supplements (read here to learn more about supplements and the Empath).

And, if all else fails have a bath:

Take a Salted-Magnesium-Essential-Oil Bath:

A salt bath with added magnesium and lavender is an incredible combination for instilling calm and balance. It’s also super soothing to your emotions.

Salt clears negative energy, it also heals and softens the skin. Magnesium helps one relax, and boosts energy, supports the endocrine system and aids sleep (quality sleep is essential for repairs). An essential oil, such as lavender, is both relaxing and uplifting. You can buy magnesium bath salts in most supermarkets.

Hope this helps.

Ok, so if I don’t get to post again before Christmas, I hope you all have a truly wonderful time.

Don’t forget to check this out before 30th Dec.

Until next time.

Stay empowered.

Diane.

The Power that Nature has to Heal the Empath


As an Empath, you will already be aware there is nothing more healing to the body, mind and spirit than being in Nature.

A stroll through a beautiful woodland, over a grassy meadow or near a natural-flowing stream is not only uplifting but it is also grounding.

It is not by chance Empaths love being outdoors. Their inner Knowing guides them towards the Earth’s natural healing power to harness its power.

Spending time in Nature is uplifting for all humans, but to the Empath it activates a special kind of magic. It removes impurities from the energy field and quietens a busy, stressed mind.

Even sitting in your garden listening to the birds sing, whilst eyeing over the vegetation has a clearing and calming influence.

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.

full moon

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! 

You can go to the Kindle store here to read the first section for free and see if this book is what you might need at this present time.

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.

Empower the Empath Mind


pexels-photo-823694.jpeg
When you don’t have control of your thoughts they can shape your life into something you don’t want. Thoughts create reality. 

Thoughts are so powerful that they can cause disease. Many illnesses are born from repetitive negative thinking. Because Empaths are ‘big thinkers’ they may be at a higher risk. 

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

Because thoughts feed emotions and emotions feed thoughts, negative thought patterns become a dangerous repetitive cycle for many Empaths.

Also, when an Empath picks up the emotions from those around them, they often claim them as their own. Therefore, their thoughts are not only influenced by their own creative mind but by the energy of others. 

If you find negative emotions, stirred up by overbearing thoughts, are ruling your life, now is the time to take back control. There is a great way to do this through yoga breathing techniques. 

For all the many benefits yoga has to offer the body, it was primarily designed to still the mind. Because it is only when the mind is quiet that we truly find peace.

The ancient yogis knew we could not keep a quiet mind whilst the body or mind was in pain (negative emotions eventually lead to physical ailments). Yoga poses (asana) were designed to strengthen,  heal and soothe the body, and also to act as a distraction for the mind. The mind cannot participate in negative mind chatter when it is focused on overcoming an obstacle, such as a challenging yoga pose.

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), they both act like a magic pill for calming negative thoughts.

Not only are the different yogic breathing techniques energizing and uplifting, they are also calming, relaxing and rejuvenating.

For an Empath, yoga breathing (pranayama) also helps lessen the impact of  the negative energy of others. They also help build a powerful aura, which protect against psychic attack and leaky aura syndrome.

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

Below is a list of breathing exercises and links to their demonstrations on YouTube. If you want an incredibly easy relaxation technique click here to get you started.

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.
