As a woman and an empath, the field of the world is intense! I am really putting into practice the things I learned years ago about energy management! It is all so perfect at this time more than any other. Even my book I wrote 8 years ago seems most prevalent for right now. I wanted to share an awareness that is making all the difference with 2 wars about and insanity in the world.
As we are moving around and connecting with others, it is hard not to be in adrenal stress. Talking to many effected by the many disasters can really be fearful and sad. When we are in the sympathetic fight or flight nervous system, we breathe shallow. It is hard not to when you listen to the stories. Rather than say anything, take deep breathes. As you watch the news, chat with loved ones or see crisis, stop and breathe deep. This will relax you and bring more oxygen into your brain. Reacting is not the way we know. It will tither you to a rat wheel or extreme emotional stress. Breathing deep is so powerful now!
The awareness I had is about my own energy field. Woman and empaths, feel everything. Some have closed off or don't allow the emotions of the field in and that is good for them. For the others like me, I am the environment. Where ever I go, I feel the energy and flavor of the place and then begin to jockey myself to help bring in peace and calm. I do it instinctively and often don't consider my own feelings. I am so tapped into the others that I really don't know myself from others in groups. This is a gift and it continues to show me how to use it rightly.
As I have learned to fill my field and know it, it is supporting me in this hectic time. I spend time in the morning really feeling how I feel and filling myself with joy, love and gentleness. As I go out, when I am feeling too much intensity, I stop, and ask, "How do you feel Lyn?" It has helped me tremendously to be in myself and expand me into my space. Then I can bring my good will to the situation rather than jockey myself to settle everyone. In getting into my space, noticing if this is my pain, sadness or not, I can then stabilize my love and help rather than exhaust myself feeling everything.
I thought it important to share that we as woman and empaths, hold the emotional nature of the spaces. When we bring our nurturing naturally, the light we are to a room, that light will do the work. It is not about me jockeying and making everyone feel better. I bring my feel better vibe in and hold. I am not in crisis right now so I can bring the calm, love and gentleness. When I have been in crisis, the calm ones where the ones who helped most. They didn't give me solutions or shift from their peaceful place. That is what helps most. To me, it is letting the divine in while I sit in love and caring and let that do the work. Before I was always trying to figure out who to be to help.
Just be yourself in your fullness knowing your from other. This was never explained well to me that I could really find my field in the way I can now. It is about not feeling the others and asking yourself, how do you feel and holding a boundary, a field around yourself of that. It is not about feeling the others and responding to it as if it were me. A good lesson for empaths.
The gift is that we bring in a calm, loving vibe or whatever we feel when in a group. It is not negating ourselves and feeling others. That is the trap. It is boundarying ourselves in fullness of our field. We sense what is needed, usually calm, and ground that in strongly to hold the space. We are space holders more than anything. You have to have a strong vibe of you to hold. Not feeling the whole field and acting. Feel the whole field, feel your field and just hang in that presence sending it out into the room. That is my great awareness these days.
Spend time breathing into your heart until you feel peace. If we all find peace within, we will effect the level of peace without. With all the reacting and believe me I can do my share of that, it is best to make it a practice to be peaceful inside. I am less likely to react when I start in my heart before I go into the world. I also find that filling myself through high impressions, oxygen and good food and water are the keys. Fill yourself first with peace and even calm joy before you interact. You have greater control and awareness of yourself and thus can better serve the weird sitautions we are encountering. We have no prior tools for a lot of it but the old methods work.
Breath deep, ground into yourself and know your feelings. Boundary that energy field of you by filling with you and hold for the others in calm loving. It has made things less stressful and more magical. I get to see the sparkle work through me rather than think I must have an answer to stuff that is way out of my league!!!
Love and Light to all!
