The important thing is that you leave the emotion with the other person and decide for yourself how to proceed or not.
What Empaths Struggle With
In this society, we are usually not taught as children how best to deal with sensitivity, clairsentience, and empathy. Those who are sensitive to the energies and feelings of others often encounter obstacles. The following four insights show you how to deal with your sensitivity in contact with others.
Four valuable insights for empaths
The feeling is not the same as being responsible
Just because you can feel the feelings and emotions of others, doesn’t mean you have to do anything with them. People are responsible for their own emotions. As empaths in childhood, we often do not learn how to best deal with the fact that we feel so much, of everything and everyone around us. We are often born into families with parents, brothers, and sisters who are not so empathetic and therefore do not even realize that this is happening to us. Let alone that they can help us deal with it.
Picking up emotions and feelings can lead to many unconscious misunderstandings. So you can believe: ‘Oh, I feel my friend’s grief, so I must do something about it.’ Or even, especially when we’re very young, “I feel my mother’s anger, so it’s just me.” It often helps if you realize: that the fact that you feel it does not mean that you are responsible for it. It doesn’t mean you caused it. Feel, realize it’s not yours, let it go, and re-align with yourself.
You can use the fact that you feel what the other person is struggling with as a clue. Now that you know what is going on with the other person, you can make a conscious decision. Maybe you can be there for the other… but without swaying on their emotion. Or maybe you feel it’s something you don’t want or can do anything with. The important thing is that you leave the emotion with the other person and decide for yourself how to proceed or not.
The feeling of the other says nothing about you
Just because you can feel the other person’s feelings about yourself, doesn’t mean it says anything about you. Also something we don’t learn in childhood. If you are highly empathetic, you can often feel what the other person is feeling in connection with you or about you. But that’s, again, the other ‘s feeling. Basically, it says nothing about you. The other person can feel joy in contact with you or love, but also aversion, alienation, jealousy, anger or even hatred. Just because you feel it doesn’t mean you have to take it as the truth about you.
Take your feeling seriously
Your intuition, gut feeling, and sensitivity act as antennae. They are often able to perceive the truth about a person or situation in a split second. While your brain is still lagging behind, your gut feeling is already on the right track. So always take your feelings seriously.
If you are uncomfortable with someone who may seem nice or great at first sight (in appearance, demeanor, reputation…), listen to it and take a step back. observe. You may pick up on how someone really is behind the facade and their intentions are not pure. Do you feel uncomfortable in a group, in a building or in a place? Listen to this feeling. There may be something going on behind the scenes that is very important and not good for you or potentially dangerous.
You have the right to feel what you want
We are often not taught this either: you have the right to focus your antennas on what makes you happy. If the misery in the world engulfs you through TV and the Internet, and you pick up even more energy from others through these channels, you have the right to turn them off. In the Middle Ages, we were not constantly informed about the misery of others thousands of miles away.
In fact, it is a great necessity to learn to tune in to what you want to experience yourself. It is part of properly applying the law of attraction, manifesting your reality, and realizing your creations. If you constantly attune yourself to the perception of the other person or even the manipulated ‘reality’ of all kinds of media, your creation will not get off the ground. Then you can’t put down what you came for.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you should always look away from the pain of others. What is important is that you make a distinction between where you can and want to make a positive difference with your presence and where you cannot. Making conscious choices is vital for an empath.
What are you tuning in to?
Sensitivity is sometimes seen as a burden and it is true that it is not always easy to deal with. But in essence, it is something very beautiful. It can serve you great if you know how to handle it well. It’s part of you. It can connect you with yourself, your soul, the universe, and all that is. It can provide wonderful experiences in connection with loving people, animals, nature, art, the angels, your soul, and the Source. What are you tuning in to?
