Why Empaths Need Protection Now More Than Ever!


You may have noticed I have written a lot about protection, healing or grounding methods, for the Empath, in recent times, and there is a very good reason for this.

There are some major changes/shifts going on, energetically, that are affecting everyone on many levels and these changes are bringing about a lot of pain, emotional disruptions and repetitive, negative thought patterns.

Generally, when there are major energy shifts, Empaths, and anyone of a Sensitive nature, gets energetically clobbered from all directions.

If you feel like you are going seriously cuckoo, with all the energies and emotions you are processing, it is probably a good time to pull out your ‘protective-tools arsenal’ and start experimenting with different techniques. Especially, if you have a daily protection ritual that isn’t working so well.

I have found, over the years, some protection/grounding methods that worked wonders at one time may stop being as effective after a while (weeks, moths or years). This, I believe, is because we just get used to things and need change to see change.

The same can be said with energy protection exercises: the body, mind and spirit gets used to doing the same exercise if performed over and over.

As you evolve you have to adapt. This often means swapping and changing your shielding methods.

If something no longer works, you are likely at the point where you need to change. Times are continuously changing and we all need to adapt.

Why are we Feeling so much Negative Energy and Emotion Now?

Because the world is shifting people are in crisis! They/we are having all sorts of unresolved issues coming up because they need to be finally cleared.

Now is the time for everyone to face their demons and hidden issues!

However, many are choosing not to do this and are instead projecting blame for their emotions onto others in the form of anger or resentment. This is generally felt by the Sensitive folk as psychic attack.

These days, it is difficult to know what belongs to whom, because it can all be so interrelated: coming from family or friends of whom you have a lot of history and unresolved issues with.

If you are unsure where your painful emotions or dark thoughts originate here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Are these emotions, feelings or thoughts unusual for you?
  • Do you get thoughts that make you want to explode or hide from them?
  • Do these thoughts or emotions pop up at the strangest of times and quickly enrage you?
  • Do you know of another person who is resentful of you and having issues?
  • Have you had to cut anyone from your life in recent times?
  • Is anyone around you burying their head and not facing their troubles?

If you said yes to the above questions, the negative emotions and thoughts, you are experiencing are likely coming from someone else (Don’t forget they could be coming from more than one person which would intensify them considerably). If this is the case you really need to amp up your protection and grounding techniques.

If you answered mainly no here are some different questions:

  • Do these feelings, thoughts or emotions seem to be childlike?
  • Can you relate these emotions to a past issue?
  • Is this a recurring theme of insecurity that has kept popping up with different people over the years?
  • Are your thoughts about a certain problem on a perpetual loop?
  • Did you bury a lot of emotional pain as a child and always put on a brave face?

If you answered yes to these question some of the emotions you are experiencing are probably coming from within. (You will no doubt still be experiencing other people’s emotions too, so keep protecting yourself.) It is probably a good time to check your back-story and find out to what these issues link.

Listen to your intuition. What is it telling you? (If there was ever a time to meditate and still the mind, now is it.)

Your current emotional pain, thoughts or feelings may have stemmed from a rejection or an injustice in childhood; this may have snowballed over the years and attached lots of other associated pains to it along the way.

Don’t focus on the memory, just recognize it as the root-cause and release it. Simply discovering the cause is often enough to clear the pain attached to it.

We are in a unique time where we have the opportunity to forgive, release and rise above the dramas of the past and of others.

When others cause you pain, they often do so in ignorance. Their actions often come from their own pain and insecurities, and from not knowing any better. They too in time will learn.
