Hello dear empaths…..I hope the world is ok with all of you. I want to talk about a subject that I see many people are not talking about; empaths and how challenging it is to be one! Not only are we constantly bombarded by other’s negativity, we KNOW things about people, which has a tendency to make us targets.
By the way, have YOU ever experienced this? People target you because you KNOW the secrets of their hearts. This gives you power over them, and THEY HATE IT! We empaths also give off a higher frequency and vibrations, and that really BUGS dark people. My experience with people like this is that my energy is just too much for them. I could say nothing, just stand in a room, and they HATE me. I used to spend a lot of time thinking there was something wrong with me. I thought I was ugly, fat, loud, dumb, etc., etc., etc., and the whole time, they didn’t WANT what I was selling; happiness and spiritual awakening. It took me a whole lot of time to come to this realization.
It has also caused me to isolate myself. But that’s the problem; I really need to be with other people. ALL empaths need to be with people, animals, or anything social. That’s why we came. To help and heal others, even sometimes we put up with abuse, which is often with human beings.
“My mother always warned me about monsters. Then I realized she taking about human beings.”
Over the last few years, I noticed I had isolated myself more and more. I was soooooo tired of being made fun of, ridiculed, set-up for bullying at work, and just negativity of humans. I started hanging around all of my animals. They have always provided solace and healing, like all empaths.( that’s in the next article.) I would be invited to meet some others after work, or family on weekends, and I would just stay home. This actually wasn’t like me; I’m a very outgoing person, but I was just tired of the struggle and negativity. But I solved it, and you can, too. Yes, force yourself to get out there. I know it’s hard, but we came with our special gift, and isolating ourselves is the opposite of our mission.
Solving Anti-Socialism in Empaths
Yes, most of we empaths are guilty of this. We surround ourselves with what heals us; animals or nature, and let the rest go. While this is good, and we need to do this, we cannot stay in isolation forever. Our job is make the world a better place, by helping humanity, and boy, does it need it! Here are some things that I’ve done to help keep myself grounded and social at the same time.
1. Find a group of other empaths. I have a group of psychics that I formed and we meet once per week. It’s nice; they know how I feel without me even explaining myself, and I feel Like I belong. People NEED other people. If you think this is NOT true, you are lying to yourself. Yes, I know people can be crappy, but there are GREAT people, too. FIND THEM!
2. Donate some time. Find something to give to, even if it’s only once per month. Humans were born to help each other, especially empaths. I donate once per month to tutor students at my school. I also take a good friend of mine suffering from Alzheimer’s out once per week. You never know how much those little things mean to other people.
3. Learn how to block your abilities in a large crowd.( You can read more about this from my other blogs.) I personally imagine a large blue-green shimmering pyramid around me, and nothing can get in. I personally see 600+ students per week as an art teacher, and have learned how to turn it ‘off’ to a certain point. Yes, this is still a struggle and certain time of the year are worse(yes, there is something to the October 31st thing strengthening your abilities!), but turning it ‘off’ just takes some practice. Yes, empaths CAN do this. Keep working on it.
4. Try to spend time with family, even of they do drive you crazy! I know, I know, I felt like that with my mom. But now she’s gone, I wish I just one more time to say, “You’re driving me crazy!” Your family, at least most of them, really do love them. Let them in. I’ve found several friends that act as my family also, and those ARE part of my family. Just let them in. Make small baby steps if you have to, if even for an hour or two.
Don’t isolate yourself, even if it makes you feel better for too long. Your gifts belong to the humanity and the world. It is your duty to give them freely!
