“As empaths, we are not here to be sponges or enablers. We are here to be helpers, guides, and supporters.”
― Aletheia Luna, Awakened Empath: The Ultimate Guide to Emotional, Psychological and Spiritual Healing.
All human beings absorb and emit energy vibrations, knowingly or unknowingly. Rumi had addressed these centuries back, saying absorbing the energies of this world, one made it a burden; what’s important is one should rise above this world and its burden because another vision exists.
We all have empathic tendencies in us. Some of us know it, some of us, don’t. This justifies the anxiousness, the agony, the confusion and the series of mixed emotions we face while talking to someone or in some gathering. Some of us have shielded ourselves from these vibrations, including our own while the energetically sensitive empaths have let themselves get affected by this world.
Being an empath comes with both positive and negative sides.
The advantage of being an empath is one can detect the true form of energy within others. One can judge a person without proof. They can not only understand others, they can also heal both themselves and the world.
The dark side of being an empath is falling into a state of chaos. With too many energies around them, they are prone to get confused and often end up becoming victims to negative energies themselves.
But there are ways to deal with the darker side. As an empath, you need to utilize your heal potential so that you don’t hurt yourself in the process of healing the world.
Here are 5 ways you can do this:
1. Be confident:
According to Barbara Marciniak, the moment you start etching your vibration on the universe, start emitting your own frequency rather than receiving, you start changing everything. In order to do this, you need confidence. Believe in yourself. You have the power to change. Use it.
2. Let go off the insecurity:
Insecurity is one of the major obstacles which prevent you from becoming a healer. You don’t need to please everyone to like you. If they don’t like you, if they don’t reciprocate your energy, there’s absolutely no reason to focus on them. You might be alone but you are strong enough to deal with everything. If you depend on others, you lose your confidence.
In our subconscious mind, we have the tendency to be good to everyone irrespective of what kind of people they are, so that they will be good to us and it is their acceptance of goodness which makes us feel good. Let go off this. All of us are not the same. People with negative energies will never reciprocate to good ones.
3. Be optimistic; convert others’ negativity into positive ones:
Empaths who are insecure tend to get dragged into negative emotions of others. They absorb these emotions to feel the pain. But you need to be a healer. So, instead of absorbing the pain, understand it and point out the positive sides of it. If something is not going right, that means there are other alternatives. Find out the positive aspects of everything. It will not only make you feel good but also heal the other person too.
4. Help others find out their positive sides:
While it is important for you an empath to love yourself, it is also important that you make others love themselves too. That is how you can heal them. Show them their positive sides, their talents; make them feel good about themselves so that they can radiate positive energy and learn to be optimistic too.
5. Stay calm:
Don’t freak out no matter how stressful the situation is. Even if someone pulls you in a zone of tension, remember that you can heal everything, that things will be okay. Don’t react or become anxious because this will create negative vibrations in you and create more trouble.
It’s not that difficult to become a healer. All you need to do is focus on yourself and the positivity of this universe. You are an empath. You can heal the world.
