I will be writing a series on Survival Skills for Empaths.
I am an empath, many of my friends and callers are empaths, and countless readers here are empaths.
We all know one thing: Being an empath is actually really hard! You spend those few years thinking we are going crazy, then find out that, no, you are not crazy, you are Gifted! That makes the mental part of it easier...but, you are still picking emotions from people near and far!
Learning a combination of easy steps to help you through the day, and the muck of everyone else’s emotions is well worth it. Trust me.
For now, I will leave you with Donna Eden, and her “Zip Up” technique. I absolutely recommend this technique for empaths. Its very effective, and a great place to start.
As for myself, I do alter this technique a bit. I do a “Zip down.” I decided to try it one day after I read natural flow of energy is top to bottom, and found it was more comfortable for me. You will want to try both to see what works best for you. If you are an empath, that will be fairly easy, because you have amazing sensitivity to your own energy body. You just have to "trust" what you feel is correct.
