We are all practicing social distancing to reduce the spread of the virus, I wanted to reach out and ask how you are holding up and I hope you are managing okay during this challenging time.
Distancing can be very difficult for some of us and can potentially be especially challenging for the ones who are struggling with depression and anxiety already.
For many Empaths, social distancing may not be an issue and I recognize how this affects everyone differently.
Me? I am totally peachy here being alone.
During my own journey of learning how to manage my mental health and sensitivities as an Empath, I found ways that helped me cope and change my inner state over time.
I struggled in the past with changing my habits and consistently implementing healthier habits.
I honestly didn’t even know where to begin to look after myself better.
I wasn’t always consistent but when I slipped off I wouldn’t make myself feel negative over it and simply continued my selfcare practices when I felt up for it again.
I used to feel very repulsed and even insulted by other people’s suggestions on how I could help myself or change myself. I had to find my own way, something that works for me and something I would actually do, it had to be simple, fast and not involve lots of thinking.
It worked for me eventually and today I have my own personalized practices I use to encourage health, wellbeing and inner balance.
Working with energies and being sensitive picking up on information all day long was exhausting and leaking my energy out.
Selfcare practices are essential for all beings but even more so for people like us who are more open to energy changes in our environment.
I feel that the current circumstances have led to many deep realizations about the life’s we had been leading and potentially it could open up many people to paying closer attention to their inner worlds.
I am taking this time to reflect and work on projects I started and couldn’t finish, I am currently taking a few courses to teach me how I can serve you better.
My visions have shown me a community of people on their awakening journeys, a place to openly share experiences and support each other.
Being on my own when I began to wake up taught me the importance of authenticity and being open to connect with others like myself.
My fears kept me from reaching out and I didn’t know where to look.
I had nobody, there was no groups on Facebook, I had no spiritually oriented friends and many people around me were happy I had dissociation and caused them no trouble.
It took a lot for me to get out of that and turn into who I am today.
Some key points to consider as an awakening Empath and/or Survivor of Abuse:
🌟 Know, create and keep personal boundaries strong
🌟 You owe nobody an explanation and don’t have to apologize to anyone for who you are
🌟 Your energy is Your responsibility, don’t sacrifice your integrity to make others happy or to fit into their realities
🌟 You have the right to say no and you owe that to yourself and your inner personalities
🌟 You are not responsible for other people’s issues or emotions, you are responsible of yourself and they are responsible of themselves
🌟 It’s okay to practise self care and that’s not at all selfish
🌟 Anyone who tries to make you feel low, change your positive believes or manipulates and confuses you is testing your ability to stay in your power, accept the challenge
🌟 Trust in your journey, you can recover from anything, you can become empowered and a master of self, there is no need for anything or anyone to fix you, you are already perfect, we choose to grow into our power and when we are ready, the steps will appear in front of us that lead us to where we want to go
“Ask and you shall receive”
I was talking to a friend on one of my night shifts and we spoke about the importance of asking questions. Many people forget that they can speak to their greater or higher selves, or god or spirit, whatever your believe is. To me, it is like communication with my true self, I have always done that but we often forget to ask questions and even if we do, we feel silly because we may not hear an immediate answer.
Do not underestimate the power of spirit communication, ask yourself what you really want to know, how to heal or clarification on an issue. Then observe yourself and your environment to see the answers. One can call this meditation but you can do this anytime, you just speak. Thats it.
In my next article in A Beautiful Life Magazine which is coming out in May, I wrote about my Gingko story which some of you may know about already. This story shows the power of spirit and the insights that can be gained by listening to the answers we are being shown and taking it serious. If I didn’t have that experience of spirit showing me the Gingko Leaf in a vision after asking myself how I could heal from dissociation and regain my memories of my trauma, well, I wouldn’t be here writing this and I wouldn’t be in the shape I am in today. Dissociation is gone, my hormones have normalized, I’m more focused, centred and balanced, I speak up, I am much more in tune with everything and have great mental clarity.
Without clarity and vision, we cannot create anything. Your mental clarity is a key factor in anything you do from standing your ground, being in a healthy relationship, applying for a job, speaking your truth to creating your own business.
You sacrifice your whole life by not working on regaining your power and clarity!
This will only serve the ones who want to keep you small and in your place.
You are much more then what anyone wants you to know.
Much love, warm hugs and well wishes
