Are you feeling the weight of the anxiety and fear you’ve inherited from your ancestors, that you pick up from your neighbors, friends, people who drive by your home, customers in the store you’ve entered, in the library stacks just opposite you, those closed in with you on the plane…
Do you soak in the anxiety and fear from the news, feel the victim’s pain, the anger, fear, and outrage the media amplifies?
Your true light is dimmed by the clouds of stuffed emotion you pick up from others as an empath.
Dear ones, it is not your job, your responsibility or your duty to take on and feel the feelings of any others! You are to live your life, not that of others. It is your job to feel your own feelings, to to know yourself and shine your light.
When you strengthen the tapestry of your aura and ground your energy to the earth, it will be easier to filter out the random energies of others. When you discern the energy you are feeling is not yours, ask it to drain into the Earth for recycling.
If you feel it is important, you can teach those close to you to begin to feel their own emotions. Where do they show up in the body? Describe the sensation in the body. What sense is activated? Name the emotions if possible.
This is a new skill for many, so patience is called for. If it is too overwhelming, they may need a healer or therapist.
If your family, friends, loved ones cannot or don’t want to learn to feel their own feelings, remember, it is not your job to do it for them! Perhaps they will eventually be ready to heal, but do not hold your breath.
Maintain energetic and emotional boundaries and keep yourself clear and whole. This is your mission above all else.
