7. Imbalanced or Blocked Chakras
Chakras are also known as energy centers.
The chakras are directly linked to your endocrine glands (glands that release hormones into the body), and people stress is known to impair the endocrine glands.
When any endocrine gland weakens (adrenals for example), it has a knock-on-effect and leads to unbalanced chakras.
Blocked or unbalanced chakras cause many health problems and can also lead to leaky aura syndrome (a problem many Empaths struggle with).
8. Weakened Energy Field:
Also known as the aura or pranic sheath, your energy field emanates around you like a luminous egg-shaped sheath.
The energy field has been defined as a haze or ‘metamolecular space’ that surrounds every living thing.
A healthy energy field keeps good energy in and bad energy out. A weak energy field, however, is porous and leaky, also known as leaky aura syndrome, and allows in too much energy from others.
If you become overly stressed or anxious when around negative people, you are more at risk of developing a permeable aura. This can cause many unnecessary difficulties in life.
A weakened aura is a bad news on many levels for the Empath (see this post to learn more) and by staying away from negative people it will help keep your energy field healthy.
9. Unhappiness and Depression:
It is difficult to stay upbeat when around anyone who drags you down emotionally.
Sensitive people are prone to low moods and depression, and for this – and all the above reasons – the best way to stay happy is by avoiding nasty or unpleasant people.
If you experience guilt at the prospect of avoiding certain negative people, remind yourself you are looking after your health and wellbeing…
You deserve to be happy and healthy!
Because complete avoidance of negative people is near impossible, I have included 3 quick recovery remedies that aid relaxation and help switch on the parasympathetic nervous system (the system responsible for bringing calm and balance to the body).
1. Take a Salted, Magnesium, Essential Oil Bath:
This is an incredible combination for instilling calm and overall balance. Salt clears negative energy, it also heals and softens the skin.
Magnesium helps one relax, and boosts energy, supports the endocrine system and aids sleep (quality sleep is essential for repairs).
Choosing an essential oil, such as lavender, further supports deep relaxation.
2. Still the Mind and Calm the Breath:
When stressed or anxious the breathing becomes erratic and thoughts go into overdrive, this only serves in heightening stress and weakens the body.
To quieten the mind, sit comfortably in a darkened room, with incense or your favourite essential oil burning, and practice alternate nostril breathing. This breathing technique brings instant serenity and quietens a chaotic mind.
3. Get Outdoors:
An effortless way to restore balance is by simply stepping out in nature (read more here), or by using a technique called Earthing (read more here).
Hope this helps on your journey.
