Empath – Gift or Curse?

Empath – Gift or Curse?

Are You An Empath?

I’ve been thinking what to write about for this blog so I thought a good place to start would be to talk about being an Empath and what it’s all about.

So what exactly is an Empath?

Have you ever wondered why people who are strangers or people you hardly know open up to you and share their most trusted thoughts? Do you have an instant connection with animals? Are you unable to watch violence, cruelty, or tragedy on television or in the movies because your soul just can’t bear it? Do you have an instant knowing about the character of the people you meet upon first meeting them? Are you highly spiritual and find the physical world and everything in it heavy? Are you often tired and have physical ailments that cannot be medically explained? If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions you may be an “Empath.

Empaths are people who are highly sensitive to the energy and the emotions of the people, animals, and sometimes even the spiritual imprints that exist around them.  Do you ever walk into a building and pick up on the ‘negative vibes’ or the ‘energy’ of the building?  Does this sometimes overwhelm you where you feel you have to get out of there?  Do you pick up on people’s moods and feelings without them saying a word?  Do you walk into a room and ‘feel the atmosphere’?  If so you could be an Empath.

Just as with every other healthy minded individual, Empaths have the ability to empathise with whom they are interacting. We are able to relate to how others feel and understand what they are experiencing. What sets Empaths apart is our higher-than-average level of empathy, the ease at which we can connect to the feelings of others, and the range within which we can do it. And where others experience feelings of empathy that are cued by interacting with others, empaths do not always. We do not have to rely on the physical senses of sight, hearing, or touch, or clues from our interactions with others, to pick up on the emotions and energies around us. We can feel and internalise emotions from people near and far.  I personally feel it can be a gift and a curse all in one.  It’s important for Empaths to be fully grounded and protected spiritually at all times so you don’t ‘feel’ the pain of the world all the time.   Can you relate to any of these feelings?  If so it’s important that you also ground and protect yourself daily too.  In my previous newsletter I talked about how to ground and protect yourself – you should do this on a daily basis.  I also cut cords with everyone each night before I go to sleep.  This isn’t a ‘bad’ thing and sometimes people ask why cut cords with people you love?  What I do is ask and intend that I am cutting cords with all ‘that does not serve me for my highest and greatest good’ and by doing this I know only the right cords will be cut.

If you read my blogs on Grounding your energy & Protecting your energy, you will have even more insight as to how as an empath you can look after yourself.

Psychic Attack

Psychic Attack

What exactly is a psychic attack?

Psychic attack is a very loose term for different types of negative energy being directed at you, either intentionally or unintentionally.

Psychic attack can be from one individual to another or it could be a group attack and that would generate more energy because of the group as a collective and the power of their intentions would be multiplied.

An intentional psychic attack can come in the forms of cords, curses, black magic, someone wishing you harm either physically, emotionally or both & any other negative thought forms.

Cords can be thick like rope or even like barbed wire.  You know generally that if you are corded from behind it has been done intentionally.  You can cut cords yourself or get an energy worker to cut the cords for you.

Negative thoughts directed at someone are a form of psychic attack. An example might be something like jealousy, maybe your neighbour got a new car or you got overlooked for a promotion at work or you have been betrayed by a partner because they cheated on you and had an affair with someone else.  If you feel angry and resentful towards that person or people, and start thinking of ways to pay them back, to get even, any form of revenge is a low vibrational energy and will result in psychic attack (not to mention the karma that will come back and bite you on the ass).

The power of your thoughts and intention are so powerful.

We are all human and we all have human moments when we are mad at someone, or maybe feel annoyed or jealous, but it’s so important to always remember that your thoughts are energetic and where intention goes, energy flows.

Keep your thoughts as positive as possible and be conscious of what you actually are thinking.

It is our job to protect our own energy by properly getting grounded and protected each and every day and cutting cords each day with ‘whatever does not serve us for our highest and greatest good’.

It is not a bad thing to do, to cut cords with people. It’s good energy hygiene.

It is also imperative to have good energetic boundaries in place, especially from people who drain your energy.

I don’t really like calling these people energy vampires as it’s assuming that they are doing it on purpose and sometimes that is not the case at all. They might just be in a bad place and you pick up on their energy.

We can protect our energy in lots of different ways. We can visualise ourselves in a bubble of high vibrational white light and intend that nothing can penetrate the bubble unless it is of the highest and purest vibrational light.

We can ask our Spirit Guides and the Angels to help protect us.  You can call upon Archangel Michael each day and ask him to come into your energy body to cut all cords that don’t serve you.

You can also ask for St Germain to blaze his violet flame right through your energy body, blazing away any negativity.

You can have a Reiki shower, draw the Reiki symbols above the shower and intend that all negative energy is being washed down the plug hole.

You can shield yourself by visualising a shield around your body, you can make the shield reflective so that anything that is sent to you is bounced right back to the person sending.  (I personally don’t like that method as I always have ‘karma’ in the back of my mind.

Also, as I said previously, having good boundaries with people is good energy hygiene too.

How do you know if you are under psychic attack?

I know if I’m feeling different to how I normally feel and if it goes on for a few days, that I may be under some form of psychic attack.  If I feel emotions that aren’t normally mine, if I feel teary or depressed or anxious, have bad dreams or nightmares and things generally start going wrong for me, or if I feel as if I’m being watched, I then start to think I might be under psychic attack. I can also sense the energy around me is different and denser, I can’t really explain that but it literally feels to me like I’ve got a dark cloud around me and I actually feel as if I’m suffocating if it’s extreme.

Objects can move or break too.  It depends on the severity of the attack and the extent of the intention behind it.

So what do you do if you feel you are under psychic attack?

The first thing I would do is ask someone to check me out to see if I’ve been the subject of some form of psychic attack or whether I’ve picked up some negative energy from somewhere (like a hospital or nursing home where maybe there maybe spirits who attach themselves to your aura/energy body).  Then, I cut cords with everyone and keep cutting cords.  I have an Epsom salt bath, sage and smudge the house, give myself Reiki and do everything I can to raise my vibration.  That might be using certain crystals for protection, using power shield and astral clear, essential oils and essences.  Putting salt above the doors and across the front door is something I do, I also have a wind chime in the hallway that helps to break up the energy in that area.  But I always make sure I really ramp up my self-care.  Keep affirming that you are safe and protected.

Do not go into fear if you feel you’re under psychic attack as you are then giving more energy to the situation that you are wanting to release.

Psychic Vampires and Energy Vampires

That sounds really really scary, doesn’t it?  But they may be friends who are going through a particularly bad time in their lives and they are feeling low and you pick up on that energy because you’ve not put good boundaries in place.

An example of this is if you go to see them and you’re feeling good when you arrive but when you leave, they feel better and you feel absolutely drained and feel like shit and literally, as if you’ve had your life force energy drained from you (which you most probably have)

This is especially true if you’re an empath or sensitive to the feelings of others.  This can be a form of unintentional psychic attack.

It is your responsibility to know who drains your energy and to act accordingly by protecting your energy.  Someone who is ill and feels really sick may unintentionally take your energy.  They are not doing this on purpose so this is another reason to keep your protection ramped up especially in low vibrational energy places like hospitals, care homes, hospices etc.

There are also such things as power objects that can cause energy imbalances too.  You might have inherited an object from someone and since that object (say for example a vase) has been in your house things start going wrong and you ‘feel’ that the energy in that room is out of kilter.  You can check for these power objects by dowsing and testing to see if the object is a power object.  If it is, then give it away. Get rid of it!  If you are no longer friends with someone or an ex-partner for example, you may want to get rid of the things that they gave to you especially if the friendship/relationship ended in a bad way.

Houses can be imbued with negative energy, think of builders, say for example who were being poorly paid for their hard work, the energy they imbue into the building of the house can cause negative energy and negative thought forms which results in an unpleasant energy.  Houses get sick too.  Your house may be built on ley lines or have a lot of EMF around it that is detrimental to you. If something has happened in a house or building, say for example someone took their own life, then this energy can remain until it is cleared by someone who knows how to clear energy or if there was a lot of dis-harmony or domestic violence then the negative energy can remain there too.

This is specialist energy work and you may wish to ask someone who is able to do this to check your property and see what the problems are.

So, you see there is a lot to think about with psychic attack, if you feel you may be under attack then please do not hesitate to contact me or an Energy Worker.
