Empath Survival Skills part one
 
Being an empath is hard. By far, it is the hardest psychic gift to live with. When we feel other's emotions, we do not just know what the other person is feeling, we feel it like it is our own. Many times, we pick up an emotion from someone else, and it stays with us all day.  This is when we start questioning our own sanity! "Why am I so depressed? What happened to make me feel this way? Everything was okay until I talked to Joan."
 
When the feelings stay with you after you have parted company, or hang up the phone, it is becuase some of that persons energy has attached to your aura.
 
This blog will focus on how to get another person's energy off of your aura, so you are not feeling someone else's emotions for an extended period of time.
 
5 Ways to do an Easy Aura Clean Up.
 
 
A) Take a shower
Its simple, and very effective.
Water is a great conductor of energy. You rinse the unwanted energy off of your aura in the shower. For the first few years on doing phone readings, I used to run to the shower after I had a very distessed caller. It works everytime!
 
B) Salt Bath
I preffer the shower method, but, I know a few people who claim a salt bath is the best way to clear deeply and quickly.  Throw a handful of sea salt under hot water and add to your bath water.  Soak for 5 to 20 minutes. If you feel the vibration is stubborn, immerse your whole face and head in the water for few seconds. Repeat 3 times.
 
 
 
 
C) Smudge
 For smudging, I suggest White Mountain Sage, it is extremely effective in removing even the most toxic of energies.  Don't forget to smudge your calves, ankles, and the bottoms of your feet. This is a very important area because this is  the place where your aura is usually the thinnest. It is also the area most often over looked. If you are an empath, take regular care of your feet!  This will "thicken" your aura in that area, and add extra protection. I know it sound silly, but, it has helped me very much! (if you unfamiliar with smudging, there is a wealth of information on the net).
 
D) Shower of Light with Raphael
Stand with your feet firmly one the ground, and your hands hanging freely at your side. Assign the unwanted energy a color (I am going to use grey). Call upon Archangel Raphael and his band of Angels to shower you in cleansing golden white light. Stand still for a few moments, and giving the Angels a chance to rain this light down upon you.  As this happens, visualize  the grey unwanted energy washing off of you, into the ground and into the center of mother earth. Here  it will be cleansed, and sent back to its original owner. Do this until there is no more grey in your aura. Give the Angels your Thanks. You may also ask the Angels to seal your aura in a Golden bubble of  light for protection.
 
 
 
 
 
E) Om
The vibration of the sound Om can be very effective in clearing the aura.
 Find a private quiet place, sit cross legged (Indian style) with your left foot over your right. (so you see your left foot, but the right is partially hidden. Take a few deep breaths, and let your mind relax. Say a prayer for protection. As you breath in, let your lungs fill completely. As you breath out make the sound "Om." You do not need to reach any perfect state of mediation for this too work. Do try to focus on the sound "Om."  Don't be aftraid to let it get a little loud, that helps! After 2 minutes, your aura should be clear. It is the vibration of the sound which clears the aura. The sound Om also centers and calms the mind and spirit.  This is my chosen method between readings now.
 
F) Singing Bowl
Similarly, the ringing of a Tibetian singing bowl can clear your aura.
Take some time to be still. Sit, or stand, next to your singing bowl (you can find these at new age shops, and on the net) allowing the sounds to wash over you.  Do not rush the process, you will know when your aura is clear. This is a very effective method used by two busy moms I know, both who happen to be empaths!
 
If you missed the first post, Donna Eden has a great technique called the Zip Up. I use it daily, and swear by it. (I zip down, not up) Please try both, see what works for you.
 
 
Let me know if you have any questions, I will do my best to answer them. There will be 2 more parts to this series on Empath Survival Skills coming up. Those will deal with the more stubborn, intense energies we can pick up.
 
 
Many Blessings to ALL.

Hi Michelle!
I really appreciate these posts, they are very helpful--loved the Donna Eden video!
What do you do when someone you know and love is "sponging" energy from you remotely?  I have a friend who reaches out psychically, without even knowing it, and uses the love in our friendship to make herself stronger, yet it makes me weak as a kitten!  Headaches, fatigue, distraction--you name it!
If I tell her, I'm rejecting her.  If I block her, I'm rejecting her.
Help, Cecil, help!

You can go to a calm place where you are peaceful like the beach or your living room whichever is most comfortable. Sit knee to knee with the person and call on their higher self and bring them to you. Then you talk to them about what is going on  the situation. And then allow them to talk to you to. And then thank them for coming in. This can make a big difference
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Sunday, August 16, 2009 6:14 PM
Yes Madea the mirror is a great idea around a person to and it makes a huge difference and grabing the energy both techniques are wonderful as well.

TrueNorth24, Thank you,  Im more thank happy to help.  I will give you a short term answer (for emergencies) and a long term answer for 24 hour care.  

When you feel her grabbing onto your energy, put both your hands over your 3rd chakra, with your fingers interlaced. Almost as if you are holding something in...becuase you are. Your holding in your energy. 3rd chakra is where this type of draining is focused, so your going to cut it off. All you have to say is '"This is my energy, nobody else can have it. Keep your hands there and repeat that until you feel better.

The best thing you can do all around, is keep yourself in a mirrored bubble. This is the way you do it: Become still, and relaxed. Use your mind to create a mirror infront of you, facing the opposite direction, so everything coming at you is reflected. Don't just see it. Focus on it until you can see it, and almost feel it. Then reach out and grab it. Stretch it all the way around your aura, in  a bubble. Work with it until you are sure you are in a complete bubble. Keep it around you. A couple of times a day, make sure it is still there, still strong. If you think for any reason it has to be repaired, use your hands to do it, just like you did with the stretching.
I know it sounds completely crazy, but it works!

Madea all the techniques work great smudgeing. The salt bath the Raphael healing idea. The Om works and any type of calming or meditative music and visualization works great to,Taking a shower is great to and allowing the energy to go down the drain.

Another technique that works great are the bath salts where you can put the bath salt on you and then get into the shower bathsalts work great to.

I love singing bowels I own one and it is amazing. I have one with a handle that I can use on clients and it balances out frequences also . how wonderful Beautiful post

AOL, you know, I never thought about using that for these situtaions. Very insightful. Thank you!
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Sunday, August 16, 2009 6:18 PM
Thanks Madea what you came up with using the mirror is a fast technique to. And you can also hang a mirror in your home where people come in near the door to bounce energy off and bounce it back outside. It does work with  surrounding yourself with mirrors to
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Sunday, August 16, 2009 6:20 PM
I love the ideas you have to. This is just a way to talk to the person and send them light. Because when we come in with the attituide for the highest good and we explain to the person what goes on it is a healing for all partieis. But when going in you ask permission and do it to the highest good. You do the same when sending light you do it to the highest good but you also get permission even from higher self which is very benificial
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Sunday, August 16, 2009 6:58 PM
AOL, that technique you are talking about with the bath salts in the shower, I be an salt scrub would work well for that.
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Sunday, August 16, 2009 7:06 PM
Thanks for the help, ladies!  I have tried the mirroring technique, and it does work.  I just need to keep checking my "bubble" throughout the day.
I like the idea of holding in my 3rd chakra.  I had not heard that one before, but it makes complete sense.  Love can still be sent, but energy is reserved.
Thank you!

# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Monday, August 17, 2009 2:58 AM
Love all the ideas here for me bubbling myself with a pink bubble and than bubble wrapping it several times helps me. The mirror works terrific, and visualizing 3 ft. of white light circled around you helps as well. Also aroma's help me a "smell" person to clear and balance me. Sandlewood and rose and something sweet smelling. I use candles or incense or oils. Madea Thank you for all your wonderful help.

Hugs,
Donna

Hi James! Thank you! That means a lot coming from you :)
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Monday, February 18, 2013 4:16 PM
Love your advice, but what about when I'm the one unconsciously reaching out to others?  I seem to take on other people's necks a lot on to my neck, which of course messes up my whole nervous system, and lately their lungs as well, which makes it hard to breathe.  It's completely unconscious, and I have my big bubble and my energy field....but it still happens.  Any advice?
# re: Empath Survival Skills part one @ Saturday, April 19, 2014 5:38 PM
YES, crystals. You hit it on the head without even knowing it. If you clear your throat chakra, and your heart you will start to feel a lot more like you are in your own space. I suggest rose quartz for the throat, and any blue crystal you are drawn to for your Throat.
Please always keep your crystals clear, or you will re-infect your spirit with what you have just taken out.


Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
Blessings,
Michelle
