Strategies Protect Energy As Empath

Empath energy is the tendency of absorbing the energy and emotions of others. This can have a significant impact on their energy levels, leaving empaths feeling confused and disoriented.

Do you relate? Well, you must also learn to protect your energy as an empath because it be can be mentally, emotionally, and physically draining. You will need love and tranquility to recover and thrive.

If you are an Empath you will already know that being in public places can be a traumatizing affair. Simply nipping to the shopping mall can mean you end up ‘wearing’ someone else’s energy for the rest of the day. Which isn’t such a bad thing if the energy is positive and highly charged. But it is mostly the not-so-nice energy that follows you home.

10 Strategies To Protect Your Energy As An Empath

On my journey as an Empath, I have found the best way to stay protected, when out in public places, is to either take pre-emptive measures before leaving home or use energy balancing techniques as and when needed.

As all Empaths are different, what works for one might not work for another. And depending on the circumstances you might need to use different techniques for different situations… or several techniques all at once.

10 Healing Strategies To Protect Your Energy As An Empath

Here are some of the most effective and easy protective techniques you can use before, during or after crowd exposure:

1. Salt

Most already know of the amazing healing properties of salt. It clears negative energies and helps protect you from absorbing them. By adding it to your bath or using salt as a body scrub before and after venturing into peopled places it helps keep you protected from unwanted energy (it also helps keep your skin silky smooth and in tiptop condition). For best results, chose unrefined organic salt. Pink Himalayan rock salt is best.

2. Crystals

Crystals offer protection from all types of negative or unstable energy. They also have the ability to speed up the Auric field and protect from electro-magnetic energy. Use the crystals you most resonate with. Carry them with you when you go out: pop them in your pocket, in your socks or keep them in your bag (make sure you connect with their energy first and that they have been cleansed). Some good choices are any of the quartz crystals or dark grounding stones such as Haematite.

3. Yoga

A short daily yoga practice is a powerful protective tool for the Empath. Amongst many other amazing benefits, yoga helps balance and build the energy body which in turn acts as an invisible shield. A strong energy field (aura) helps keep other people’s energy out. A weakened energy field becomes leaky and allows too much energy in.

4. Singing

Yes, this may seem bonkers but it works! Sound affects us on many levels energetically. Yogis have used sound for thousands of years (chanting/song) because they know of its incredible cleansing and uplifting power. Singing raises your frequency, making negative energy bounce off. Try it when you feel an incoming energy storm and see how it changes your vibration.

5. Mirrored Energy Ball of Light

Surrounding yourself in a healing ball of light (in your mind’s eye) is a great way to protect yourself from the energy of others. Every morning see yourself engulfed in a huge vibrant mirrored ball of protection. Believe it’s there and know it is protecting you from the energy of others (great when used in conjunction with crystals).

6. Avoid Caffeine

Any kind of stimulant leaves the Empath wide open energetically. Too much coffee, for example, can leave you vulnerable to other people’s energy. If you cannot go without your coffee-fix, moderate your caffeine consumption and try to only drink decaf before, during and after being in people-packed places.

7. Breath-work

The breath is a powerful tool that most of us take for granted. The way we feel can affect the way we breathe, as can the way we breathe affect the way we feel. Certain breathing techniques can work wonders, not only for the way we feel but also for protection to people’s’ energy. Breath-work can be used pre and post-exposure to people’s energy.

8. Essential Oils

The power of essential oils has been known throughout the ages. As well as their amazing healing qualities, essential oils can help build a powerful energetic armour, they also have the ability to keep one relaxed and grounded when in peopled places (Read more here on some different oils and their benefits). As with crystals, choose the oil to resonate most. (My favourites are lavender, basil and frankincense.)

9. Close Your Eyes

By closing your eyes in noisy, highly charged peopled places it can protect you from the wayward energies you might normally find seeping into your energy field. It is doubly effective if you practice a breathing technique at the same time. This method switches off your external awareness and allows you to stay detached from the energy of others. Which in turn protects you from ‘wearing’ their energy.

10. Balance Your Hormones

This isn’t so much as a protective technique, that can be done before leaving your home, but more of a lifestyle change. It is possibly the most important and most effective of all these techniques. And yes, this also applies to men.

Your hormones are directly linked to your chakras, meaning they affect both your physical and energetic bodies.

If your hormones are out of whack you won’t be able to balance your own energy, never mind that of others. When your hormones and thus chakras are balanced you will enjoy a better quality of life as an Empath. And although you will still feel the energy and emotions of others you won’t be taken down by them.

7 Secrets of the Sensitive‘ goes into detail on how you can easily balance your hormones and chakras and thus enjoy total transformation and harmony in your life. It also reveals how to live happier, healthier lives and enables you to see this Empath life for the amazing gift it really is…

Hope this helps on your journey of transformation.

Until next time…
