Energy Vampires - The Space Invader

During the month of October, I'm adding to my Empath Collective library. This is one of the biggest projects I’ve taken on throughout the whole time my Empath Collective has been together. 

I’ve been working on this project for several months. It’s on the topic of Energy Vampires. ‍ 

I’ve been hesitant to cover this topic for a few reasons: 

  1. I'm really careful about the energy surrounding each topic. If it's too negative, it might bring people down.
  2. I'm also careful around labels because labels can stick and I believe that people really can change.

If you think you might have an energy vampire in your life, you’ll definitely want to keep reading and you might even want to join our Empath Collective

First things first... You've probably noticed that I frequently talk about energy fields. Yes, we all have this energetic border around us that determines our comfort level. This is also known as personal space

Lower your stress level

Bringing down your stress level is easier than you think. Simplicity is the key that will keep you coming back to that still point that rests within: 
  1. Take a deep breath in
  2. On the exhale, relax your jaw
  3. Take a deep breath in
  4. Exhale and relax your forehead
  5. Take a deep breath in
  6. Exhale and relax your shoulders 
  7. Repeat

The only difficult part is actually remembering to use your stress-busting tools. You can set a reminder for a certain time of day or several times a day like once per hour. 

You can be mindful to do this each time you walk through a doorway, when you're on a walk, or when you wash your hands. These habits can really add up to decreasing your stress level and blood pressure.

Practicing Acceptance

We live in a time where self-discovery is on the rise. Although being an empath is not the norm, some people still debate whether or not being an empath is real.
 
Letting people be who they are is a sign of respect. And being (or feeling) judged feels terrible. Imagine what kind of relationship you would have with family members or friends if you felt supported. That your strengths as an empath were appreciated instead of being seen as a weakness.
 
In my Empath Collective, I make sure that empaths feel empowered and have the tools to thrive. Oftentimes it seems like a bit of work, but the process of self-discovery is incredibly rewarding.
 
Believe in yourself. Focus on your gifts rather than your perceived shortcomings and acceptance of yourself and others will blossom.

Meditation for Pain Relief

Empaths have a tendency to absorb the emotional and physical pain that someone else is going through. It's true.

One of my goals for this year was to branch out into offering more grounding exercises to empaths to help ease the emotional and physical pain through meditation. Recently, I did just that, and it was such a beautiful experience.

I’m excited to share my signature meditation with you... The Body Fades Away.

It's the PERFECT meditation to help with pain relief.

If you’re looking to take the step into owning your sensitivities, creating a meditation practice is a great place to start.

What you should know about crying

Did you know that tears are healing?

They're the body’s natural release valve for stress, grief, frustration, anxiety, and sadness.

If you're an empath, you might have been told you're "too emotional'. Not to worry. You're just naturally healing. Your body knows exactly what to do.

Tears help protect our eyes by removing irritants, reducing stress hormones, and tears contain antibodies that naturally protect our eyes.

They allow your eyes to clear out irritants, protect our eyes from infection, and are a part of the body’s department of defense.

After crying, our breathing and heart rate decrease, and we enter into a calmer biological and emotional state.

Emotional tears contain stress hormones. They shed hormones and toxins that build up during stress. Crying also stimulates the production of endorphins, our body’s natural pain killer and “feel-good” hormones.
.
Crying is also essential to resolve grief when waves of tears periodically come over us...

Digital Detox

 

A few weeks ago our Empath Support Community had some fun with Empath Self-Care Bingo. We tried about 20+ different self-care activities with the idea that at least one activity would resonate with us.

 
I told myself I'd try everything on the bingo card and I finally made it to the "digital detox" square on the bingo card.
 
At the time, I was feeling really burned out on anything digital. Phone, laptop, Zoom, TV, social media, and even podcasts. It felt overwhelming. But... I kept going because I connect with clients primarily through all things digital.
 
But, I tried it. Then I stepped away from it for **gasp** more than 24 hours and it just felt right. It ended up being about a week.
 
I felt a little guilty at the time but I knew deep down that this was what I needed in order to sustain my mental energy.
 
This is SO important! Especially for Empaths. I took a dose of my own medicine, so to speak. It was fabulous. I scaled down on...

Walking Meditation

Have you ever wondered how many types of meditation are out there?

I've practiced meditation with mala beads, mantra meditation, silent meditation, chanting, and the list goes on.

 I've rediscovered one of my favorite meditations. Walking Meditation. 

Just like any type of meditation, walking meditation can be incredibly rewarding. When you practice walking meditation, you're connecting with your body and the earth at the same time.

Here are a couple of key points and ideas for your walking meditation...
You can count how many steps are you taking with each breath.
Walk and breathe in such a way that you can connect with your body deeply.
Connecting with your breath, the planet, keeping it as simple as possible.
Remember - this isn't a power walk. You're not trying to get from “point A to point B” type of activity.
Walking meditation shouldn't be work. It's nice and pleasant, especially in the early morning when the air is still very fresh.
Take notice of your...

Block out negativity with a shielding visualization

Looking for a great way to shield yourself in intense energy situations? Even Energy Vampires? 

Have you heard of a shielding visualization? 

Shielding is a quick way to protect yourself. Many empaths and sensitive people rely on it to block out toxic energy while allowing the free flow of positivity. 

 

Use this technique on a regular basis. The minute you’re uncomfortable with a person, place, or situation, put up your shield. Use it in traffic, at work, a crowded restaurant, at a party if you’re talking to an energy vampire, or in a packed doctor’s waiting room. 

This technique is useful in any situation.

  1. Begin by taking a few, deep, long breaths.
  2. Visualize a beautiful shield of white or pink light completely surrounding your body and extending a few inches (or feet) beyond it. This shield protects you from anything negative, stressful, toxic, or intrusive. 
  3. Within the protection of this shield, feel centered, happy, and...

Daily Pages - My favorite journaling exercise

THE DAILY PAGES writing exercise has been instrumental in helping me see the good throughout each day. 

The activity of writing is a big part of becoming an empowered empath. 

 
I love kicking off a new activity with a challenge. This is a great way to keep everyone engaged and moving forward.
 
The "Daily Pages" exercise is very simple and can be done in just a few minutes, depending on how deep you want to go.
 

In the morning: 

  • List 3 things I'm grateful for (find different things each day). After doing this for quite a while, you'll start noticing you're grateful for the smallest things and situations in life.
  • List 3 things that would make today great. Again, this is a lot of fun when you can change it up daily.
  • 3 positive affirmations to use throughout the day. Something different.

In the evening:

  • List 3 amazing things that happened today. Even if you had the worst day, you can find 3 things.
 
So get out your favorite...
