I.S.A.’s Empaths gathered together on Sept. 8 to practice different skills.
In the safe, secure, and loving environment of the Grotto, each Empath had the opportunity to try different skills and do self-reflection about what works best personally.
We used clearing methods and shared ideas about ways and when to clear ourselves.
Then we did a meditation to ground and center ourselves. This helps us to focus on what emotions belong to us and which ones are not our emotions.
After that, we chose a way to protect ourselves from taking on emotions. We were mindful of the idea of not completely blocking ourselves.
Some ways to protect ourselves were using color, an animal guide, an angel protector, or using light.
We realized that all of these protectors were available for us to call on for assistance with our empathic abilities.
After preparing for practicing our skills, we were then able to try some “sensing” activities where we tuned into what sort of emotions were coming forth from someone else.
These are some helpful thoughts that I.S.A. Empaths had to share:
“Be kind with yourself. See the humor. (What do I do with it? Should I tell the person? etc.) then ask your guides and protectors for assistance and clear instruction. Remember that if you don’t know what to do with the incoming emotions or energies, you can always return people’s “stuff” to them with love.”
“Cherish and value your gifts. Stay vulnerable. Eat beets.”
“Who does this belong to? Me? Someone else? Something? I return it to sender with consciousness. Access Consciousness.”
“If you are unsure of what to do with sensing information that you receive, it is okay to check in with your guides and ask for clarification. It is also okay to ask someone, “Are you open to me sharing information that I received?”
“Clearing, grounding and protection is not optional. It is as important as sleeping and eating.”
“Embracing your talents can be scary and allowing your talent to blossom and to be in your life and your practices can be very fulfilling. Love yourself and good things will come to you.”
“You are important. Take time to nurture and protect yourself. Being Empathetic doesn’t have to be a weakness as long as you value yourself and what you can do and feel.”
