There is a lot going on these days. The divide between us and them seems to grow deeper and more aggressive every day. And empaths take on and process much of the emotional warfare. Empaths are feeling weary, run-down, and overwhelmed.
I want to invite each of you to pull in. Shut off the news sources for a full day. If you can, go for a walk and listen to music. Let your mind wander. Cuddle with a pet, talk to the birds, or go to a wildlife refuge.
The world is in some chaos, as is her nature. We are in a cycle of destruction before we can begin growing again. We will grow again. It won’t stay like this forever, but it will be continuing for a while.
This is the nature of our Universe. Just like Spring follows Winter, growth follows destruction. It is time for all of us to work on our resilience and endurance.
It is time for us to understand what we have control over and what we don’t. As a reminder, you have control over yourself. That is pretty much it.
If you are feeling stressed about what is happening, if you are scared about what the future will bring, or maybe you are angry that people are behaving so ugly, know that you have no control over any of that.
And it is okay, you never did have control of those things.
Time to Mend and Heal
What you do have control over is how you are processing everything that is happening. How are you doing? What is dogging you right now and how can you care for yourself?
If you have reached the point where self-care is no longer bringing you relief, I suggest going deeper and looking at what you are feeling with the intention of relieving some tension. For example, I worked today with a client on safety.
She has always struggled on some level with feeling safe in her body, on this planet, being the person she is with her set of beliefs. With everything going on in the US, this theme has grown to a point where she wasn’t feeling safe at work or within her family.
We worked on the originating events that created her feelings of being unsafe and healed those events. One was from a past life, one was from an ancestor, and then we clear the energy she had attracted to her that reinforced her beliefs that she wasn’t safe.
It was a big session and it will take her some time to integrate the work we did but it was timely and it followed the theme all of my clients have been taking lately. They are acting out on the micro-level what is happening on the macro-level. This is the nature of energy patterns.
Here is a body scan meditation for you to relax into and it will help you observe your body and see where the emotions bubble up.
We Are The Ones
The world is in need of our leadership right now. Empaths are needed to demonstrate how to lead with the heart. How to build consensus and collaboration. How to plan and build knowing we are all connected and that we need each other to survive.
But before we can lead others to the Brave New World, we need to tend to our own wounds and shore up our own boundaries. There is still a ways for us to travel before we can have confidence in a bright future again.
It will be easier going if we mend and heal. And the world will be better off if more of us in position of influence in our families, communities, and workplaces work on healing our wounds around power, safety, and fear.
