I recently was interviewed on a wellness show on the topic of surviving as an empath. What is an empath? Essentially it's anyone who is consciously aware that they pick up the thoughts, feelings and emotions of the people around them. Often when we first open up to this, it can be overwhelming to say the least! It's like living many people's lives simultaneously and losing the ability to definitively know what thoughts and feelings are actually yours. Essentially this is a talent and ability that we all have, it's just that some people are walking up to it more dynamically and sooner than others. Once you do open up to it, there is no going back, all we can do is keep expanding into navigating with these talents and abilities and having more ease with them. As I've mentioned in classes and videos before, if we refuse our gifts and abilities they control us. When we acknowledge them and honour them, we can choose how to direct them, in a way that serves and supports us in our lives now. You can gain mastery with your gifts, so that they no longer overwhelm or control you.
What are your next steps in gaining greater mastery of your talents and abilities? This ability to be empathic can be a tremendous gift in having deep intimacy, knowing what people are going through, and being able to offer support and compassion that is in alignment with what they need, and much more. The key is to keep going on our journey, and receive all the tools, support and resources we require to have this level of mastery and to be able to enjoy having these gifts. What has previously been a burden can now be a gift. The key is learning how to take what was once a burden and re-direct it so that it can be a gift. In the case of being empathic, this does involve creating energetic boundaries and claiming your space. By choosing to claim your life, your body and your energy field as your unique expression of the one, you can feel "you" and have the thoughts that are yours. Once you've established that, then the ability to be empathic can be utilized when it is being called upon by others, so rather than walking around the world "just being open", you can walk around the world being open to receive the guidance from your higher self as well as all the energies that contribute to you. This becomes your vote for how you desire people to be with you.
We cannot expect people to be a certain way. Where they are now, and the way they are showing up now is a reflection of where they are in their progression of awakening. What we can do is create a strong energetic field that draws people in to meet us, meeting people who have chosen to embody those energetic frequencies such as love, light, harmony, nurturing, gratitude, kindness, generosity, and caring, as well as drawing in people we can guide, teach and assist to access their higher self knowing. One thing I mentioned in the interview is the notion that "your life is your prayer." In every moment, the snapshot of your energy field and the frequencies that you are emitting is your prayer for how you'd like the world to be. This can be adjusted through your desire and conscious intention to do so, thus emitting a better transmission of who you are at your core. May we all receive the tools, support and resources to thrive in all ways, on planet Earth now. If I can assist you with this, go to the contact page and get in touch. I am truly inspired to contribute to different possibilities being available for all of us now, to truly have and receive the joy of living.
Here is the video of the interview:
