Empaths function as open receptors for emotional and energetic information from others. This is part of who we are. The energies we pick up tend to drain our own energy. We believe the energy we pick up is ours. As Empaths we need to learn how to set boundaries, and also how to clear other people’s energies from themselves.
We may sense certain diseases in the physical or auric energy field of others. Disease can have left the physical and still live in the auric field.
Our home becomes a sanctuary. It also exists as a Sacred Space.
Our partner may feel the energies that we have picked up from others. Use methods such as Tibetan Bells, Crystal or Tibetan bowls to clear yourself. Do this before you interact with your partner.
Some partners have separate sleeping areas. So as not to process their partners energies as they sleep.
Do healing work in your home to clear that space.
You may sense an attraction or repulsion to someone.
You may feel another’s state without even speaking to them.
Some empaths can tell if someone tells the truth. Other empaths sense whether someone has good or negative energy or intent. Notice those who only want to drain energy you i.e. energy vampires.
Large crowds and gatherings drain you.
You may feel the emotional energy from the global population. Major world events: disasters or major emotional shifts in humanity can affect you.
People may feel more at peace. They may feel safe within your presence. As a result, people open up and receive more healing etc. from you.
You know intuitively how to heal someone or a situation. You have the ability to balance and harmonize situations.
Empaths respond to those in need with help and compassion. We always need permission from the person or at least from their soul before we assist them. Sometimes a fine line exists between helping and being codependent. Do you constantly give without nurturing your own self? Do you know how to set appropriate boundaries when someone takes advantage of you?
Conclusion: As Empaths, we need to learn to center and clear toxic energies. We need to ground with the earth/nature. Most of all, we need to set clear energetic and personal boundaries.
