Are You Feeling Lost, Alone or Disconnected?

It has to be said: we are in the midst of some dark, challenging times.

With all the civil unrest around us, it may seem near impossible to find any kind of balance as an Empath. It certainly appears that dark energies are on the increase, which is causing bedlam among the Sensitive of the world. And all the political and religious dogma being spouted in the media is certainly not helping matters.

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 heated disagreements, conflict, division and hatred it is political opinions and religious beliefs. This is so clear in what we are seeing in all corners of the globe.

Between terrorism, politics and religious or race divisions there seems to be little else in the media (other than reality TV personalities). With another election being called in the UK, it appears the media fuelled political disputes will be never-ending.

There is so much hate being bred, both in the media and out on the streets, that even if you lived far underground it would be difficult to avoid the dismal energy being produced.

People are so affected by the dramas being played out that they don’t see the real intentions behind them. Much of which are ploys to keep us divided, distracted and angry. People are being played off against each other and all it is doing is causing a blanket of massively contagious, dark, dark 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. Getting caught up in the political/religious doctrines, and the whirlwind of propaganda that goes with it, is all part of the plan designed to keep people from unity. It is just another form of gaslighting.

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.

Even if you are able to stay detached from the propaganda being generated, you will not be immune to the murky oppressive energy it stirs up. This energy seeps into your energy field even whilst you sleep. And because it is so all encompassing it is difficult to stay detached from.

This low-level energy may show up as periods of lethargy and chronic fatigue, depression, brain fog and an absolute sense of disconnection from life, as well as loneliness. Many are feeling completely lost. Again, this isn’t just affecting the Sensitive, I am seeing/feeling it in many people.

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.

My belief is that everything is being magnified as a ruse to keep us from finding oneness, truth and self-empowerment. If we are kept distracted from our true power we cannot harness it and find the peace, happiness and balance we are meant for. It is so important, during these dark periods, that we stay on top of our game.

We are being targeted mind, body and spirit and it isn’t just by political distractions and gaslighting. The food we eat, the air we breathe and the substances we are subjected to are nothing short of toxic. All of which acts as endocrine disrupters which in turn messes with our chakras and energy bodies. We have to continuously work to evolve and adapt by making changes, it would seem, on a near-weekly basis.

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. Your diet is so important now. It has more impact on your mental health, and how you show up in the world, than you may know.

Also, if ever there was ever a time to keep your mind empowered now is it. And a good way to do it, other than meditation, good food and exercise, is by focusing on all your strengths. Look to find your hidden super powers and stay focused on them. For example: focus on your kindness, consideration or creativity. Don’t be tempted to indulge in negativity, wherever it is coming from. Just keep swimming in the potential of your innate gifts, how to develop them and how lucky you are to have these unique talents.

What we focus our attention on grows. When we embrace our inner power, that power will grow. We then project out this positive vibrant energy, which in turn helps neutralize the bad stuff.

What is also important to remember during these fractious periods is you are not alone. There are many others experiencing similar moods, energy levels, loneliness and disconnection. If you feel lost, confused, fatigued or angry, whilst voyaging these turbulent times, just remember how many others are also living through it and coming through the other side. You may feel lonely but you are not alone.

Hope this helps on your Empath journey.

Until next time…

Earthing: Easy Grounding for the Empath

Happy 2017!

I don’t know about you but I love this time of year. All freshness, new beginnings and new intentions. January is a re-start. When the Christmas craziness has passed, it is a great time to develop healthy habits and get back into our grounding, re-balancing techniques.

I have just returned from a two-week break in the Caribbean, which I have to say was absolutely delicious! Seeing the sunshine, blue skies and beach every day, whilst getting to daydream and devour book after book, was the best gift I could have been given. Especially when it’s been nothing but drizzle and dreariness, in the weather department, back home.

When I go on holiday, I often let my exercise and healthy eating habits slide. But, this time, I was intent on keeping them up (well, at least the exercise side of things). So, the first morning of our arrival we eagerly turned up at the hotel’s gym for our pre-breakfast work-out. To our dismay, we found the gym was small, stuffy and super-busy, with no floor-space to do stretches or yoga. We spent more time waiting for machines than we did working-out. Anyway, not wanting to sound all winey and ungrateful, it turned out to be a big blessing in disguise.

The following morning I suggested to my husband that we work-out on the beach instead of venturing into the gym. He wasn’t too keen on the idea, being a big fan of the treadmill and weights, but went along with it because of the busyness of the gym. grounding

On the beach, we did a mix of high and low intensity exercise whilst wearing training shoes but when it came to yoga and stretches, it was time to go barefoot. As soon as I kicked off my shoes and grounded my feet into the sand, I felt an incredible calming, yet powerful, energy surge through me. In an instant I remembered the familiar tranquillity and pureness that comes with connecting to the Earth. (It also helped being able to gaze out over the beautiful sea and watch the palm trees swaying idly on the light, salty breeze.)

The Earth’s powerful healing energy, I now realize, is something I take for granted or forget about, especially whilst my feet are swathed by toasty socks and sturdy rubber-soled shoes. But even when I do remember, life or bad weather (especially here in Manchester), gets in the way of good intentions to ground barefoot with the Earth.

Grounding with the Earth is also known as Earthing and is a quick powerful way to harness the Earth’s power.

Earthing has gone from being a somewhat ‘woo-woo New Age trend’ to being a well-researched practice with a number of proven beneficial health benefits. From the perspective of being an Empath, I have found Earthing has some of the following positive benefits: Continue reading

Do You Own These Empath Traits?

Are You an Empath…?

Empaths encompass incredible emotional intelligence, which they use to make careful decisions they hope will bring balance into their life and the lives of others. But as emotional intelligence is a rare gift, in a world ran by logic and rules, it can leave the Empath hurt and vulnerable by those who do not function or think in the same way.

Sensing all they do about people and life situations makes the Empath an excellent judge of character. Their first impressions are always correct.

They sense emotions intensely, both their own and others. This ability can weaken the Empath, especially when it is emotional pain they feel. This is the opposite of who they know they are. Deep within they recognize they are here to do something special, but are held back by the confusion of what they experience.

It is easy for an Empath to become overwhelmed. She will look for ways to shelter from emotions in vices such as alcohol or drugs. It may take time for the Empath to discover these vices create the opposite effect and make their pain more intense. In time all Empaths come to understand, only the strong could endure what they do.

With guidance and personal commitment, Empaths learn to navigate the myriad of emotional debris they face. Both their own and that left by others. This allows them to take the necessary steps to create the magical and well-balanced life they desire. Continue reading

5 Easy Ways to Stop Empath Overwhelm

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

Empath overwhelm is often caused by being “peopled”. But being around crowded places or overly negative people is not the only way an Empath becomes overwhelmed.

When someone has caused hurt, by their words or actions, or if the Empath has had negative thoughts directed towards them  it often throws them completely off-balance, sending them nose-diving into overload. And that is not to mention what they suffer from being in the firing line of another’s low-mood.

The more out of alignment the Empath (feeling run down, emotionally low, having unbalanced chakras and hormones, etc.) the worst they will be affected by overwhelm and the longer it will last.

Empath overwhelm affects everyone differently, some much worse than others, at different stages of life. It causes lethargy, apathy and mood swings, and can  trigger thoughts that keep you awake at night and dark emotions that reduce  your verve for life.

The best way to combat the impact of overwhelm is to ‘nip it in the bud’ as soon as you become aware of it. The following techniques work quickly to stop Empath overwhelm in its tracks:

1. Eat a small amount of chocolate: I say small amount because large amounts have the opposite effect (I discovered this the delicious way, by devouring too much).

Chocolate can transform and uplift oyur mood in an instant. Containing compounds which promote happiness, chocolate is the go-to food when you have been emotionally or energetically triggered.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, produced by eating chocolate, known as the happy hormone. This hormone not only activates your bliss centers but it also helps refrain you from dipping into dark thoughts.

In my opinion, milk chocolate tends to work better than dark (as dark chocolate has a higher amount of caffeine). But the type you choose is something you can experiment with yourself. Most chocolate contains refined sugar which is a big cause of depression, and inflammation, not just in Empaths but all humans. So keep chocolate just for the times when you’ve been hit by emotional overload.

Eat between 2 to 4 small squares of chocolate, washed down with a pint of cool water. The water speeds up the healing and re-balancing process. 

2. Temple hold: Place two to three fingers on either side of the temples (between the eyebrows and hairline) and hold for as long as needed.

This simple technique helps break the repetitive thoughts that are triggered from emotional pain and overwhelm. It also works to block the dense feelings they cause.

I’m not sure why this method works but it does. (I suspect it is because it activates acupressure points and soothes the parts of the brain responsible for emotions.) It makes one feel safe and helps contain any excess ‘head energy’.

Great to do at bedtime, when emotional overwhelm turns into rampant thoughts that keep you awake. Taking some calming, conscious breaths at the same time further helps.

3. Short burst of high intensity exercise: A mini power-walk or run, dynamic yoga moves, dance routines or skipping, etc.  helps burn off raging or uncomfortable emotions. I’m talking very doable bursts of exercise that last between 1 to 5 minutes.

Performing short bursts of high intensity exercise releases endorphins into the body which block the pain transmission signals and produce euphoric feelings that calm the entire system.

A great exercise I use, when I have been emotionally fired-up, is the plank. Most will have heard of the plank; it is a challenging yoga move that activates all the muscles in the body. Maintaining it for just 30 seconds is often all it takes to blast out any negative energy.

There is a variation of the plank to do whatever your fitness level, from beginners and beyond. You will find plenty of excellent instructional videos on YouTube to get you started.

Whatever exercise you choose, as your mini blast, make sure to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable and your muscles burn. (The saying ‘fight fire with fire’ springs to mind here).

See 7 Secrets for more on the transformative power of specific exercises and the healing hormones they release.

4. Singing: This may not be something you want to do when feeling low, but it is excellent for lifting the moods. Sound affects you on many levels and singing raises your vibration and can stop emotional overwhelm in its tracks.

Anyone can sing, hum or chant, even whistling works. Just make sure the song you chose is uplifting and not one that stokes up painful emotional memories.  Try it and see.

5. Avoid caffeine: Being a stimulant, caffeine will heighten any emotional overwhelm you are experiencing. You don’t always realize how caffeine worsens your emotions because the effects kick in 30 to 40 minutes after consumption.  It can make you anxious and jittery and anything you feel negatively inside is amplified. Not having caffeine will not always prevent emotional overload but it significantly reduces the symptoms and the way it affects you.

So there you go, quick, simple techniques, taken from the book 7 Secrets of the Sensitive, that work to reduce the Empath’s overwhelm! For more similar techniques see 10 Ways to Protect Yourself.

Defining the Emotions an Empath Feels in Others

Learning to differentiate between ‘whose emotion belongs to whom’ certainly proves to be a challenge for many Empaths.

Every Empath quickly comes to discover of their ability to sense the emotional energy in others, but some struggle be able to distinguish these emotions from their own.

I often get asked questions like: ‘How do I define what I feel in another person?’ or ‘How can I block the emotions I feel in others?’

Not understanding what others’ emotions represent is more common than you might think within the Empath world.

When I was younger (teens and twenties), I did not know I could sense the emotions in others. I thought it was my insecurity that made me so uneasy when around certain people.

If anyone carried hidden pain, negative energy or anger issues, I felt them as a deep sense of discomfort, which I wrongly interpreted as being part of my own social hang-ups. Continue reading

Trinity Healing for The Empath

Anyone who has read many of my posts is probably aware that I am very much an advocate of taking responsibility for self-healing.

When it comes to realigning mind, body and spirit, I believe  we are the ones who must do it for ourselves and we should not hand our power over to others (in most cases). It is after all our unique journey. We learn most in life by that which we overcome.

I wasn’t always of this mind. When I was younger, I hoped others would or could do it for me. I thought the best option was the easy option… I learnt the hard way on that one.

It was over 20 years ago when I started looking for answers to mysteries of life. And in that time I have made many discoveries. Especially in regard to Empath life!

It took me a while to see it, but the journey of an Empath, and its many ups and downs, is a brilliant and amazing fast-paced rollercoaster ride and a true blessing. If it were an easy, comfortable trip we would never get to overcome the many obstacles we do. And, in turn, accomplish and learn so much.

We climb mountains, float on clouds and stumble into darkness, sometimes all in one day, and it is these experiences that make the Empath journey so worthwhile.

I have by no means got the answers to life’s mysteries, nor would I yet want to have. We have to leave something to learn on life’s path. However, the most important detail I have realized to date is: we will never find true health, peace or happiness as an Empath until we heal the trinity of mind, body and spirit.

Mind = thoughts, ego and emotions
Body =  physical vessel
Spirit = the energetic body and higher self or soul

We come as a trinity package and when it comes to healing we generally have to work on all three.

The longer body is out of alignment the worst damage it will cause to the Empath trinity.

Some of the worst damage caused to the mind, body and spirit is from the consumption of an unsuitable diet.

It does not matter if your body is toned and athletic or whether you have a regular spiritual or meditative practise. If your diet is unsuitable it not only weakens your body but also causes leaky aura (seriously bad news for the Empath )and has a harmful effect on your mind (also bad news for an Empath).

I had no idea that what we put in our mouths could have such a harmful effect on our all round physical and mental health, as an Empath, until I changed my diet.

My transformation began when I gave up wheat [see post here ]. Once my mind was clear of the drug-like and mind-numbing effects of wheat, tuning into my body’s needs became easier and easier.

After wheat elimination came the removal of refined sugar and again, I could not believe the change. Happiness became a staple.

I now realize that within the medical establishment, holistic and new-age arena, they and we are being misled and misinformed. The cause of most problems in both body and mind is what we feed ourselves. The low-fat, high grain/sugar diet we have been consuming these past thirty years has turned many into sleep walkers. This way of being stops us from reaching any type of enlightened state.

Wheat and refined sugars strip the body of essential nutrients and enzymes. An imbalance of just one nutrient or enzyme, in the body, causes untold misery in the mind. Deficiency is destructive.  I would not have believed this had I not witnessed such a transformation within myself by eliminating the foods that deplete nutrients [see post here on supplements for Empaths].

Without enzymes we would cease to exist. They keep us alive, nourish our bodies and keep our mind healthy. As we age our enzyme production decreases. This, coupled with a bad diet, puts us on a fast-tracked-path to mental and physical illness. This is why it is so important to keep our enzyme consumption high and eliminate foods that strip them.

Giving up much loved foods is not easy, I know, but once out of the system you do not miss them and you will not believe just how amazing you can feel. Your Empath life will turn around!

For those of you who have suffered a lifelong battle with ailments, allergies, fatigue, illness or depression, you will be amazed just how well you can feel. In fact, just by eliminating wheat alone will get a new lease of life.

This may sound like a bold statement but making changes to your diet will help you discover your true self and accomplish your dreams. Click here to learn more.

Modern diets and lifestyles have taken too many Empaths and Sensitives down. Putting them out of action without them realizing their diet is preventing them from becoming who are they are meant to be.

You may already consider yourself to have a ‘healthy diet‘, but if you don’t feel amazing as an Empath, something is off.

If you want to see BIG changes in your life, change your diet!

If you have worked on yourself mentally, spiritually and physically and still suffer bouts of  Empath fatigue, overwhelm, depression or many physical ailments it is time to address what you eat…

The time has come for you to really start living, not just existing, and get doing what you came here to do. There is nothing to lose but everything to gain…

Ayurveda for an Empath

I have always been fascinated and had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge on anything to do with healing, as is typical of an Empath. I have constantly searched out different healing modalities in the quest for salvation from my Empathic traits and have always been on the lookout for that miracle cure…

In the days before I learnt of my being an Empath, I would get frustrated by the fact that I didn’t get the desired, expected or promised results from the many holistic treatments, I tried and even learnt; that others had sworn by. It was only after I discovered of my being an Empath, that I realised most of my maladies were coming from external sources (other peoples’ emotions) and the therapies that were beneficial to some, in dealing with stresses and other emotional states, were of no use to me. But that did not stop me from searching for an antidote. Unfortunately, I can not lay claim to having found the solution to impede or quash the barrage of unwelcome, incoming energies, I have, however, found ways to tolerate and lessen the symptoms.

What I have learnt and continue to learn is that knowledge is the key to safeguarding our wellbeing. We are ultimately responsible for the health of our body, mind and spirit. I always had an inkling and then later a knowing, that this life is a DIY (do it yourself) job/journey and that, after childhood, relying too much on others, to take away our pain or make our life easier, is not the answer. We are answerable to ourselves and it is up to us to discover what will help and/or hinder our wellbeing, mentally and physically.

Empaths tend to be hardwired for learning and are constantly on the lookout for therapeutic techniques, not just for themselves but for others too. Just the act of reading this or any other similar blog, is in the quest of healing knowledge and a way of looking for the answers. I’m sure we would all love to find a quick fix or miracle pill to take our, and others, woes and pains away, but then if everything came easily, there would be no sense of accomplishment in life. And that is not to say I believe life should be a struggle and a constant uphill battle, we just need challenges and lessons to help us grow and we can do that through taking self-responsibility.

As we are all so very different, what works for one, does not always work for another and because of this it can prove difficult to find out what is best for our personal healing. Bearing this in mind, I would suggest that finding out one’s individual body type is a must in the interest of our health and sanity, and we can do this through the healing art of Ayurveda.

I have long been an advocate of the healing powers of yoga on the physical body and mind (hence becoming a yoga teacher) but I never seemed to get it quite right with diet and digestion and it is only recently that I have made the connection with diet and our body types.

A part of my yoga teacher-training was devoted to the study of Ayurveda, an ancient healing practice, thousands of years old and a sister science to yoga, in which we discovered our body constitutions or prakruti known as the doshas.

The meaning behind Ayurveda can roughly translate to the science of life and its aim is to bring balance and health to both body and mind. This is achieved through various Ayurvedic methods, but one essential element that firstly needs addressing is what we put into our mouths, whether that be hot/cold, wet/dry, sweet/sour, bitter or pungent. Before we can find what to eat for optimum health, we need to discover our dosha type.

There is much free information out there on the net in regards to Ayurveda and dosha types but to explain in brief: it is said that we are all born with one basic constitution (dosha) which are known as, Kapha, Pitta, and Vata. 80% of us are born with one primary dosha and the other 20% will have a dual-dosha or even tri-doshic type. Dependant on your type will depend on what foods to enjoy in abundance and those to avoid or eat in small amounts. For example, a Kapha type who tends to be on the heavier side, dislikes the cold, puts weight on easily, is sluggish, can have oily skin, suffer from excess mucus and in general be very laid back in life, a diet consisting of low-fat, low-sugar, low-wheat products and plenty of spicy food should be consumed. Then for a Vata type who, among other traits, tends to have dry skin, fluctuating energy levels, an ever whirring, restless mind, be of slim build, quick to anger and quick for anger to subside; a diet consisting of sweet, warm, moist and oily foods is followed (not processed food). It goes against the grain of what  the Western world has promoted, in that a healthy diet is beneficial to all. An incredibly healthy food, which is great for one dosha type, may not be so good for another.

The three dosha's and the 5 great elements the...

The three dosha’s and the 5 great elements they are composed from (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

To determine the dosha type you were born with, visit: http://www.banyanbotanicals.com/constitutions/  or  http://doshaquiz.chopra.com/  and do the dosha test. When answering the questions it is best to cast your mind back to late childhood, early adulthood, because this is when you were most likely your true dosha type, before you got imbalanced from a stressful lifestyle, wrong diet and exercise et-cetera.

There is a wealth of information on both websites about your dosha type and what foods to eat, or to avoid, to balance it/them. You can also discover how much exercise is beneficial to your type and whether eating your food hot or cold is a consideration. It is always best, if you get chance, to visit an Ayurvedic practitioner, who will give you a reliable diagnosis of your dosha. If this subject is of interest, you will no doubt find yourself perusing the web for hours searching more information on Ayurveda and the doshas.

So how does this information help out an Empath? Finding your dosha certainly won’t take away the difficulties we have to endure, but if we balance our dosha types it is just another step towards overall balance. Empaths take on so much from others and can spend much of the time feeling exhausted just from dealing with external influences. Sometimes it can be hard to tell what belongs to us and that which belongs to another, but if we know that we have balanced our body, mind and spirit through eating, drinking and exercising according to our type, being in balance will help us discern the energies and then use the tools that we have found helpful in dealing with toxic energy overloads. We have to remember that as humans we will still suffer from our own range of emotions, anger, anxiety and fear (finding your dosha will also determine whether your type is more prone to certain emotions than another) caused by life situations.

These days we can not afford to get ourselves any more out of balance than we already are. If we are not physically in good shape, through healthy exercise, good nutrition and mind stilling exercises, then we will be vulnerable to a whole host of illnesses ready to knock us out of our groove (stressful emotions lead to illness, whether they are ours or not). I know on some days just putting one foot in front of another can be a real effort and even just thinking about exercising is hard work, so it is my advice that on these, low energy, days you should think of doing some passive stretching and restorative yoga. Basically, it is putting your body in certain poses and let gravity do all the stretching work, whilst allowing your breath to rejuvenate the body. When it comes to Empaths and exercise, a little is always better than none.

We are currently in the throes of a huge transitional shift and there are a lot of fearful and heightened emotions out there. If it’s not the energies of other peoples’ pain bodies we’re dealing with, we’re being floored by the many solar flares that are pounding the planet. Now, more than ever, we need to look after ourselves. If you haven’t already, check out  Grounding Techniques for Empaths and Sensitives, you may find some useful tips. I have also found supplements quite helpful too. As they say, ‘every little helps…’

If you are an Empath, I empathise with you for what you will probably be going through or have already been through. We have to keep reminding ourselves that we wouldn’t have agreed to take on all that we do if there wasn’t a very good reason for it. So, chin up, smile and keep plodding on…
