How does one that is sensitive, empathic even, cope with a world they simply cannot escape if they can’t keep a shield up 24/7? How does one manage to maintain any kind of normal relationship when s/he is constantly bombarded with energies? Even with grounding techniques, even with intentions, etc. How does this person hold a job? A marriage? Must this person isolate and be as alone as possible? What if this person cannot, despite extreme efforts, gain any control over his or her environment?
This comes up in many readings and classes. Many people are so sensitive to other energies that they walk around feeling as if the whole world is, literally, at their feet. And everywhere else too. it is not a fun feeling, and can cause great pain within one’s space.
A few things to become aware of for yourself here:
First: are you walking around with all of your abilities turned up all the way, all the time? If so, turn them down. You may be experiencing something akin to having all the radios in your home turned up all the way full blast, each on a different station. It gets noisy and messy. Your chakras do not need to be wide open for you to have access to them.
Secondly: if you work with white light and white energy, begin working with the earth and earthy colors. White can let in lots of other energies that like white. White is uncomfortable for your body, and right now you want to make your body happy. Give earthy thoughts to your body. Get next to the earth, ground your body to the earth.
Thirdly: back to your body. What do you say to your body? How do you feel about it? Do you blame it, are you mad or embarrassed by it? To protect yourself, you must learn to love your body. Become its best friend. Move back in. That is also grounding.
Next: Are you taking everyone’s stuff on in a healing capacity? You may be healing others without clearing them out afterward. Get more conscious about what it is you are choosing to take on.
I do not see isolation as a good option, not on a planet filled with incredible, amazing, wonders. Yes, there are times when I, too, feel so sensitive to the changes I am in, that I need space and time away from everyone. But if you are constantly needing to isolate yourself because there is energy in your space taking over, then that energy is winning. You are being owned by that energy. Your life is not how you want it to be.
Rather than complicate it even more, it may be time to simplify. Again, learn how to begin listening to your own body. It is always telling you something, giving you valuable information. It is never wrong. Begin listening, and acting accordingly.
Often the energies that come in are invalidating and punishing. Becoming your own best friend, loving, forgiving, and being kind to yourself, is absolutely healing for you. It is the greatest protection you can create for yourself. It is very useful to find a meditation class that can teach you the tools to get in your body, and to clear out what has been invading you. Just because you are sensitive does NOT make you wrong. You may just need some different ways of doing what you have been trying to do.
