Empaths can sometimes feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. These techniques can help you protect yourself.
Empaths are super-perceptive people that tend to pick up on the energies, collective or individual energies.
Being an empath is actually nice for the most part, you can immediately connect with people around you and you are a magnet for people. On the other hand, this gift can also turn challenging for you, because being highly empathetic means that you can be affected by negative emotions and energies.
How to realize you need some grounding techniques
- You feel scattered, you are anxious and you have trouble concentrating.
- You are fixated on somebody else, it could be a coworker, friend or loved one having a rough time and you are still worried about them.
- You feel overstimulated by collective energy after attending a crowded place.
Techniques to practice when you need grounding
Step 1: Practice some breathing techniques, slow down and let the oxygen calm your nervous system.
Step 2: Make yourself comfortable, sit, get some fruit juice, have a bath, make anything you need to be physically comfortable.
Step 3: Pat or rub your leg, fold your hands in your lap, or put your hand over your heart -this will help ground your own energy.
Step 4: Try to focus on what you are experiencing at that moment. Ask yourself if you are happy, anxious, or worried, and try not to relate your feelings to others.
Step 5: Ask yourself what you need. Maybe you need to meet your best friend, do some yoga or practice any creative activity -this will make you reset your energies.
Always remember to check your feelings, being an empath is beautiful, but you have to make sure you emphasize with yourself too.
