A Helpful Video for Empaths, Part 3

      Last week we were discussing the ABCD's of being an empowered empath in a difficult emotional situation.  If you haven't already watched the helpful video, you can do so here.  

     There is one point I would like to emphasize.  In the past, when someone told me to put a white egg-shaped bubble around myself for protection, I always felt small and cut off.  I think I was confusing a bubble with a shield.  

     And there is a big difference.  

     A shield makes you feel defensive, small, and weak.  A bubble makes you feel large, loving, and at a higher frequency.  

     So, when you are sitting next to Negative Nancy or Downer Don at the next holiday meal, go bid.  Go high in frequency.  Go loving and compassionate.  It will make a huge difference.

A Helpful Video for Empaths, Part 2

      Did you watch the video?  Should I have alerted you to the fact that puppets were involved?  They were effective in getting the point across, don't you think?

     So, let's review.  Mr. Gupta gave us four points to remember when in a social situation where we are feeling empathically bombarded.  They are:

A is for Awareness and Acceptance.  We are aware of our own energies, we are aware of the energies and emotions of the other person, and we accept that they are going through their experiences, but we are NOT responsible for taking on their pain.  

B is for Boundaries.   Do we need to remove ourselves from the situation?  Or can we maintain our energetic boundaries, like an energetic bubble that Mr. Gupta describes?

C is for Compassion, first for ourselves, and then for the other person.  Are we filling ourselves up with loving energy towards ourselves, so that we can sit with this person and objectively be with them without becoming an emotional dumping ground?

D is for Discernment.  As we hold an objective, compassionate space, we discern whether the person just wants to be heard, or are they ready to move forward?  Of course, we don't tell the person what to do, but if the person is ready, perhaps we can ask some leading questions so that they can find their own way. 

     Very helpful advice, wouldn't you agree?

A Helpful Video for Empaths

      Here's something a little new and different for you, dear Reader.  Are you up for a video?  I found this video on how to become an empowered (rather than a victimized) empath.  With the holidays approaching, you are sure to find yourself in a situation in which you are sitting next to someone who wants to unload all their problems on you.  Because you, dearest Reader, just radiate kindness and caring, and you are the perfect dump receptacle.  So rather than becoming someone's emotional garbage heap, watch this video on tips of how to protect yourself and remain empowered.  You deserve it!
