This is a follow up to my last article (On letting people suffer as an energy healer) and describing a somewhat kamikaze method of energy work that I have recently discovered for myself (I am sure it's described somewhere, but I haven't come across it so far) which seems to help (me) with processing and … Continue reading Letting others’ unhealed wounds heal you (kamikaze energy work)
I can't breathe; something seems to be sitting right on my solar plexus and sucking the juices out of it. It seems almost nauseating. At the same time, my thoughts are obsessed, keep circling around a client that I'm going to work with later this week. I've done an "energy scan" on this person before, … Continue reading On letting people suffer (as an empath and energy healer)
Last week I've been lured into "psychic experiments" by curiosity – a bunch of people claiming I'm psychic. Wanting to test it by reading the energy fields of random strangers over distance, without information or pictures (as I had the impression that I'm so sensitive that a picture has more than enough information for me … Continue reading An encounter with Santa Muerte (on surviving hardcore visions)
I've had a bunch of people telling me I'm a "shaman" lately. While this has certainly tickled my ego, as the term seems to at least carry the implication of being somehow special – I've started reflecting on all these things and what they mean. I've never interpreted my visions and encounters with what I'd … Continue reading Shamanism and insanity
Kindergarten I remember way back in kindergarten, one of the girls came in with a bandaged limb (I don't remember exactly which one it was). I couldn't bear looking at it; and ended up feeling the pain in my body, long after I had left the class. I didn't think much of that. Stray dogs … Continue reading The physical empath enters your knee
I was living an out-of-body experience for years without realising it. I think I'm not the only one, and I don't think empaths are exempt from this misconception. In fact, because of the sometimes painful emotional intensity that we experience in our bodies, we may be even more prone to abandoning them than other people. … Continue reading Struggling to find your ground?
My health-food obsessed atheist Jewish friend has a mantra: Your diet is the religion of your body. I'm not quite sure what he means by that. But let's say that he means that food is important. Amen. I would add, it is particularly important for sensitives. During my hippie hermit phase in the countryside, after … Continue reading Food energetics for sensitives
Being an empath in the emotional sense or a highly sensitive person can be draining enough as because of your other-directed nature (and additionally upbringing, if you are female) you will have a tendency to notice what is going on with others and spend a great deal of your energy processing and (emotionally and often … Continue reading Why do empaths often experience overwhelm?
Don't worry, the title is metaphorical (and not meant as an offence to nudists or blind people). But this is what some empaths and clairsentients seem to feel like – at first – when we try, perhaps for the first time in life, to navigate life without having our psi-radar scan everyone, everywhere, all the … Continue reading Walking down High Street naked, backwards and blind: empaths and hypervigilance
