How to Spot A Residual Energy Attack

Hope everything is keeping really well in your life and (depending on what part of the world you live in) you are enjoying these lovely summer months.

Continuing on from my last post about how residual energy impacts the Empath, I am here following up with information about the residual energy  picked up from people and  why it gets caught up in our energy field and how it affects us.

Residual energy from others can seep into our aura and influence our thoughts and moods for days after being picked up. Anyone and everyone can leave a dark mark of lingering energy when in a low mood, but those who affect Empaths in the most painful ways are the people who act as emotional trauma triggers (ETTs).

To those who are Sensitive, the mere mention of an ETT’s name is enough to ignite an unpleasant emotional response. But the worst reaction happens when one has spent time in their presence and their imprint has infused into one’s energetic body. Continue reading

Residual Energy and How It Impacts the Empath

You have probably heard the expression “residual energy”, it is a term all Empaths become familiar with. It is often used when describing the energy remnants left in objects, places or buildings by the people who have gone before.

When a traumatic event has happened in an area it leaves a powerful imprint within the energy which Empaths, and anyone who is Sensitive, can pick up on. The same can be said if there has been a lot of anger, hate or erratic emotions within a particular place.

Certain rooms in most houses will contain a host of different vibes and residual energy. Bedrooms, where confused, angry or moody teens grew up, can acquire a heavy dense energy stain. Living-rooms, where families relax and come together, often have a laid back vibe.

I have always sensed residual energy within buildings and locations, but I did not always know what it was I sensed. When I was younger, if I felt a dense energetic imprint in the places I visited, I believed the space was haunted. The denser and darker the energy, the more it convinced me a ghost was about to jump out at me (I had a big fear of ghosts back then). In some cases, the residual energy almost felt like a presence.

I used to naively believe dark residual energy within a house was a sign of malevolence. It took a while for me to understand it is mostly dark painful emotions that caused the dense energy and not some evil act (although that certainly leaves a dark mark).

Most buildings will contain some kind of residual energy. Empaths pick up on these vibes rather like first impressions. We notice them at first but don’t always continue to, if we visit a place frequently.

Just like buildings that hold low level residual energy, there are many places with happy vibes. When a house had been filled with a lot of love or happiness the building feels like the sun is shining indoors. Continue reading

5 Ways to Stop Empath Overwhelm in an Instant!

Every Empath experiences it and it is one of the most challenging aspects of being Sensitive. The overwhelm we endure, from taking on too much emotional energy, can  at times be unbearable.

When someone has hurt us, by their words or actions, or if we receive negative thoughts directed towards us, it can throw us completely off-balance and send us nose-diving into overload. And that is not to mention what we suffer from being in the firing line of another’s low mood.

Emotional overload affects us all differently; some much worse than others. It can cause extreme distress and misery; the effects of which trigger thoughts that keep us awake at night and emotions that darken our moods for hours, days or weeks. Continue reading

Emotional Freedom…Can Tapping Clear Your Empath Emotions?

You may have read or seen a clip on YouTube about the emotional freedom technique (EFT) known as Tapping. The premise is by tapping certain acupressure/meridian points on the face and body it can help release blocked energy and suppressed emotions. It also helps with addictions, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety and persistent thoughts.

The origins of Tapping lie in Eastern medicinal techniques such as acupuncture and acupressure, both of which use the body’s meridian points to aid in healing. It is claimed by tapping these points with your fingertips it activates the body’s own healing power.

Although many people trust in Tapping for its potential to release physical and emotional pain from the body and mind, I have not used the technique, other than the odd time, because it did not feel a fit for me. So I cannot lay claim to receiving the stated benefits. But after studying Ayurveda and yoga I know how powerful the energy lines of our body are for healing and restoring balance, and because of this I felt it an important subject to cover.

The repetitious practice of Tapping is meditative and any meditative practice is perfect for the Empath. I get the impression, like meditation, Tapping is a practice one has to build to see lasting benefits. I know some Empaths struggle with keeping up a meditation practice and this may be a good alternative for those who find it difficult. Anything that reduces the overwhelm of emotions endured by the Empath is worth trying. We are all different and we all know what works for one does not always work for another. We have to keep trying new ways to stay in balance and keep control of our thoughts and emotions so we can live happily and healthily in this world. Continue reading

What is Smudging and How Can it Help Empaths?

burning sage sticksYou may have heard of the term but not quite sure what it meant, so what is smudging and how can it help those of us who are Empaths?

Basically, smudging is the practice of burning of herbs and using the smoke to remove negative energy from people, places or objects.

For the Empath, smudging can be a great tool. It is a quick and easy method to help remove negative energies picked up when being out and about in ‘peopled places’ or just to clear one’s energy field.

Smudging has been used for centuries all over the world. Today it is mainly associated with Native North Americans who use it in their healing ceremonies. However, many other countries burn herbs for cleansing: In India they use incense, in Chinese acupuncture Mugwort is used, in Africa varied herbs are burnt, even the Christian Church burn herbs in their ceremonies. And although many of these actions have become ritualized, their basis stemmed from using smoke to remove negative energy. Continue reading

Knowing It’s Time to Let Go of Toxic People

To the Empath being in harmony with people in life is essential to their health and wellbeing. Toxic friendships can cause untold pain and damage to the Sensitive one.

If there are people in your life who cause you any kind of emotional pain, which lasts long after you’ve left them, it may be time to evaluate the relationship and perhaps release them for your life.free toxic image

Before we can really help or be of service to others we have to find balance within and that means taking care of our physical and mental needs and stop exposing ourselves to that which is toxic, in the form of food, substances and people.

Most Empaths will have at least one toxic person in their life that can cause a wave of intense, negative emotions to rain down, just by being in their presence. These people, who may be a friend or family member, seem to spew venom when they talk which can be felt in any of the main energy centres (chakras), especially on the front torso, in the form of an ache or pain. To some, it can feel like hot lava is being poured over the solar plexus area (seat of emotions) with an intense burning sensation. It is normal for toxic people to talk negatively of everyone and everything, which can drain the life force within a matter of minutes. Even after trying every trick in the book for self-protection, nothing seems to stop their venom seeping into the Empath’s physical and energetic body.

 Typical sensations which can be felt by being with toxic people:

  • Anger or feelings of bitterness embodying you: This can last for the duration of being in their presence and up to 10 days after. Depending on the negative traits they carry will depend on what you feel.
  • Fatigue: Struggling to keep your eyes open, especially if they are venting.
  • Being out of sorts: A range of strange feelings wash over you, from being spaced out, to nausea.
  • Negative talk: Finding yourself talking negatively of others, even though it is not a typical trait of yours. Overly toxic people can easily lure the unvigilant Empath into their judgemental behaviour.
  • Apathy: Losing all previous zest and optimism.

A toxic friend will probably be a family member or lifelong friend and because of this you have a natural fear of letting them go, not least because you probably love them. Chances are, you have already tried helping them by sharing what has helped you, in dealing with the rigours of life. Sadly, they do not want to hear or listen to what you have to say about any kind of self-help, preferring to offload their negative rants on you. You may have also tried getting them to see situations from different perspectives, hoping they may recognise that by changing their attitude and outlook, it would change their whole life…to no avail.

The Empath would never want to hurt or cause unnecessary pain to others and it is for this reason, many keep in their lives, those who cause much emotional pain. Yet, one must always put the emotional health of self first. If you know a food or substance made you violently ill or caused you to feel depressed, you would avoid it; the same should be applied to those who cause emotional turmoil. We have a responsibility to keep our bodies and mental wellbeing strong and healthy, and if another is causing us damage (all stress will eventually lead to illness), it is our duty to either confront the said person or remove them from our life.

I am not talking about having our ego’s dented by another’s random disrespect. We all have people who offend, hurt or make us angry, by their lack of understanding, at some point. And we in turn will no doubt do the same to others. This issue is about those toxic friends or family members who repetitively bring you down and do immense energetic damage. It can be so intense that you know exactly when they are having negative thoughts about you.

For the Empath, navigating friendships can be a grey area, as most people will invoke an emotional response within. It is often the kindest of people in whom we feel the most pain. Yet feeling another’s pain is nothing compared to what some can make us endure. The point will come in toxic friendships when one has to decide if it is causing more harm than good. Here are some questions to ask yourself that may help evaluate your friend/relationship and hopefully help you see if it is a healthy one:

  •  Am I taking anything from this friend/relationship?
  • Does spending time with him/her make me happy?
  • Do I dread being in his/her presence?
  • When was the last time I enjoyed being in his/her company?
  • Do we have any of the same interests?
  • Is it a one-sided friendship with me fitting in with his/her needs?
  • Does this relationship affect my emotional health?
  • Do I feel ill, emotionally drained or intense negative emotions after being with him/her?
  • Am I being used as an emotional dumping ground?
  • Does he/she have a lot of negative thoughts or anger towards me?
  • Am I learning anything from spending time with him/her?
  • Is being in this relationship making me grow spiritually, emotionally or other?
  • Is this relationship beneficial to either of us?
  • Has he/she become dependent upon me?
  • What are my real reasons for staying in this relationship?

From my experience there are many reasons why we encounter toxic people in our lives. One of the most common being the mirror effect. Certain experiences or encounters with others act as a mirror and show us weaknesses or issues we need to resolve within ourselves.

You may already have seen a pattern of behaviour in family and friends towards you. Examples are: others being either overly needy of you or not being there for you when you need them. If you have noticed any such behaviour being a trend in others actions towards you, it is most definitely not happening by chance and will be an area where, when questioned and understood, a wealth of knowledge will be attained.

Another reason we may endure difficult relationships with others could be we are there to highlight flaws or issues within their life story, that they need to work on and learn from. We all learn from experiences and situations presented to us in life. Yet if the same emotional scenarios keep playing out with another and all that comes from it, is you being left with their emotional baggage to clear up, that they have refused to take responsibility for, no one is gaining, learning or growing from the situation and it may be time to cut the chord.

Empaths take on and feel others emotions and energetic attributes. Some people show up in our lives to press our buttons or to make us aware of patterns of behaviour in self that needs addressing, which in turn helps us make the necessary changes to ourselves. Beyond that, we have to see the lesson we may need to learn from a relationship is about having the courage to let it go. It can be in loss that we and others learn and grow the most.

We can learn a lot from bad people and bad experiences, but we don’t need to keep on experiencing other people’s negative emotions. It is not helping them or us. Once we have learnt from an experience, we don’t need to re-learn it over and over.

Our repetitive painful emotions can and will turn into illness, if we continue to let them occur. If another continuously leaves us with a painful energetic imprint, simply by being in their presence, it is time to let them go. This is not about hating or turning against them, we can be grateful to them for all they have taught and shown us in life and in the long-run, will benefit both parties.

Empaths can powerfully project their emotions out and this includes that which we take on from others. We are each responsible for the energy we put out into the world in the form of words, emotions and thoughts. If being in another’s presence is causing our emotions to fluctuate so profusely that we emit negative vibrations, it is up to us to stop being in said person’s presence, until the time when we know they cannot or will not affect us.

I have attached a link to an article I came across quite randomly whilst writing this post and offers another writer’s perspective on ways to deal with toxic people, and although it is not written with the Empath in mind, it is worth a read.
