Amazing solution (from Eckhart Tolle) for all of you who have been asking, how to create a high vibration in and around yourself. Mainly around the subject –how to protect yourself from negative energy or people. And what to do to truly take care of yourself regardless of your environment.

Here’s what Eckhart Tolle has to say:

If you can not be present in normal circumstance, such as when you are sitting along in a room, walking in the woods, or listening to someone, then you certainly won’t be able to stay conscious when something “goes wrong” or you are faced with difficult people or situations, with loss or the threat of loss. You will be taken over by a reaction, which ultimately is always some form of fear, and pulled into deep unconsciousness. Those challenges are your tests. Only the way in which you deal with them will show you and others where you are at as far as your state of consciousness is concerned, not how long you can sit with your eyes closed or what visions you see.

So it is essential to bring more consciousness into your life in ordinary situations when everything is going relatively smoothly. In this way, you grow in presence power. It generates an energy field in you and around you of a high vibrational frequency. No unconsciousness, no negativity, no discord or violence can enter that field and survive, just as darkness cannot survive in the presence of light.”

(from Eckhart Tolle, “The Power of NOW”, page 62.)

Here are some solutions to clearing negative energy we found useful. Everyone is different, so try them out to see which ones work better for you.

The number one key is to STAY GROUNDED in your body. This means getting regular exercise, eating nutritional food, and cutting out overstimulating things in your life.

Clearing Negative Energy In Your Environment:
1. Smudging your home with sage.
2. Doing Meditation and taking deep breaths.
3. Strategically placing bowls of sea salt in your home to protect you from entrance of negative energy. The salt acts as an absorbent to negative energy.
4. Using protective stones and crystals. Some good protective stones that repel negative energy are Onyx and Obsidian. While Amber and black tourmaline acts more like absorbers.  And Amethyst is considered a healing stone. So you may also want to consider wearing protective stone jewelry. (Just remember to clean the stones regularly with sea salt and water.)
5. Physically clean the place. This removes the old energy and keep the place in high vibration.

A man in Hawaii healed the patients in a special ward, a clinic for the mentally ill insane criminals… And closed down the entire hospital.

So how did psychologist, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, do it?

At the time this Hawaii State Hospital was filled with individuals who committed murder, rape, and other serious crimes. People who worked there were so frightened of the dangerous environment and unpredictable threatening attitude of the inmates that staff would constantly call in sick. Nobody wanted to come and work in fear of being attacked by a patient-inmates. The employee turnover became so bad that many workers quit after a few months.

How did Dr. Hew Len change all that?

He practiced, what he calls, “Ho’oponopono“. It basically revolves around the concept that everything that you perceive or that happens around you is your own creation and take this…You are 100% RESPONSIBLE for it. No exception.

Pretty hard to swallow, huh?

Doing ho’oponopono, it’s claimed, you can virtually heal yourself and you can can virtually heal whoever or whatever that appears to you as a problem. The phrase, “If you spot it, you got it…” pretty much says we are all connected. If the problem was introduced to us, it means we attracted it. Somehow we are responsible. Not necessary at fault, but responsible because the world is our creation. As Dr. Hew Len likes to point out, “Didn’t you notice that whenever you experience a problem, you are there?”

Dr. Hew Len points out that “Peace begins with me.” If there is going to be peace in the world, it starts with first cleaning ourselves.

So how do we do this “cleaning”?

Here’s the healer’s SECRET technique that freed the mentally insane criminals.

By simply feeling and saying these 4 Simple Phrase (in any order you like) daily to situations that appears to you as a problem.

I’m sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Thank you.

Take ownership…the whole 100% responsibility for the happening. Apologize for the situation and feel that. Ask the Divine Creator for forgiveness thus cleaning and cutting any negative memories, blocks, and vibrations of that unwanted energy from the beginning of our creation to the present. Because we just aren’t that big to see all and why the problem came to existence. We sometimes have to just ask and let and trust the Divine to see it through. And then feel the love and appreciation by saying, “I Love You” and “Thank You” to the Divine Creator and ourselves.

This ritual has the intention to cleanse, purify, release and cut any negative memories and blocks connected to that energy and situations and wiping it clean. Which brings you back to the original state he calls the “Zero” where there are zero limits. This is the state where one is free from the past, wrongs, gunk, and any unwanted energies…  And where space is made for the Divine creator, light, and love to come in.

Only when we have clarity can The Divinity provide us with insight, inspiration and whatever is perfect for us… And true lasting change can take place.

After watching many meditation and yoga videos,  I’ve gained an insightful revelation about one important thing we all need to remember to keep our prana, chi, or energy flow moving.

It’s was actually this phrase one wise person uttered, “If you are not breathing, you are in your head.” that hit me.

This is one of the most crucial steps on staying in your body –present and alert with mental, physical, and emotion clarity. Only when you are breathing and bringing new flows of oxygen can you keep your chi flowing and your body refresh. As in yoga, the breath is seen as one of the life-giving energies or forces of the universe.

With your breath, your connection with the divine (or whatever you like to call it) can be kept open. Most importantly, this will help you stay connected with your surrounding and in touch with yourself.

This is a prayer Kahuna Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona used to heal and clean negative energies, memories, thoughts, blocks, and vibrations making space for the divine to flow through you.

The story goes… during one of Morrnah’s gathering, a student (who could see people’s aura) pointed out that everyone in the room has an aura around them except Kahuna Morrnah. For some odd reason, Morrnah did not have one around her. The student was baffled by this. Then a fellow attendee told her she needs to go outside up to the hills to see for herself. And so the student did, and to her amazement, There it was!… Morrnah’s aura… so grand, that it covered the whole place. Morrnah’s aura was so large you could not see it up close because you were inside her auric field.

I love this story. I feel it sums up a lot of things about who Morrnah is.  And most importantly, how this prayer has help her in her journey. Thank you Morrnah for your gift and enlightenment to the world. You are not only a jewel of Hawaii, but a beautiful blessing and light to us all.

May Morrnah’s prayer and blessing bring more peace, love, and light into your universe.

Here’s the Prayer For Cleaning and Cutting All Negative Energies (From Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona–A Hawaiian Kahuna).

Divine Creator, Father, Mother, and Son as one…

If I, my family, relatives, and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives, and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds, and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask for your forgiveness.

Let this cleanse, purify, release,  cut all negative memories, blocks, energies, and vibrations.

And transmute these unwanted energies into pure light.

And it is done.

-Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona, Kahuna

Are you drenched in others’ negative energy?

If you are an Empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP) more than likely you are carrying their STUFF around. As an empath and HSP you have a different built in sensory system. It’s more fine tune making you very sensitive to those around you and your environment. So you can be easily influenced by them.

When you catch yourself feeling down or sort of in a slump. Stop and ask yourself, “Is this me?”

If it’s you then ask yourself, “What can I do to get the result I want?”

If the feelings aren’t coming from you, try changing your environment…simply get up and move to another location. More than likely, it may be a nearby person’s or people’s emotions and feelings. Or that place’s energy is just funky.

Great example of other people’s negative energy wearing you down is being stuck in traffic. There’s a lot of different energy and feelings going around…boredom, sick, anger, fatigue, anxious, and exhaustion just to name a few. And as an unskilled empath and HSP you could very well have taken in some of these energy…and already covered up in these energy, whether good or bad.

“What can I do?”

That brings me to share two SECRETS…my absolute personal favorite cleansing necessities for Empaths and highly sensitive people (HSP). Remember even as Empaths and HSP,  we are still unique individuals so what may work for me may not do the same for you. Please explore and see which suggested products works and feels better with you.

Now with that said, the two most helpful and crucial cleansing materials for me as an Empath are (1.) Dr. Bronner’s Hemp Lavender Pure-Castile Soap made with organic oils and (2.) 100% natural mineral Epsom Salt. When you take a shower and cleanse yourself with these items, it works wonders!

…because the Hemp Lavender soap soothes, relaxes, and calms you. And it smells great!

Then after you rinsed that off, you do your Epsom Salt cleaning. Oh, I just love how the salt melts and soaked away the heavy dense sensations. The Epsom salt acts as an astringent that pulls the negative energy, heat, and heavy feeling away. To me, it’s one of the fastest effective way to cut the psychic cord between you and others’ energy. Besides that, there are many other healing benefits to this truly miraculous mineral.

Epsom Salt is also a soaking aid for minor sprains and bruises. A saline laxative for the short-term relief of constipation…and it also reduces stiffness and soreness in joints, comforts your muscle aches, alleviate pain from sports and overexertion, take the sting out of insect bites, soothe away stress, deep clean your skin and pores, and soak away tiredness and soreness.

I highly recommend taking an Epsom Salt bath (especially if you’ve been doing energy or emotional work) so you may experience some of its’ benefits today…so settle in and experience the relief. Virtually almost anyone can benefit from it.

Apply the tips mention above when you feel like a cleanse is needed to cut the pyschic cord. These two tips can raise your mood and vibration. Do not, I repeat do not wait till you feel sick or have hit rock bottom to do something about it. If you can spot it, you bring more awareness to your healing. Lift yourself up, don’t wait for external occurrences or others to entertain you or your environment to change for you to start feeling better.

You are capable and able to change your own state of well-being and happiness.

Please welcome Glenn Smith, author of Lotus Petal, A Parable to Help You to Overcome The Fear of Death. He helps overwhelmed highly sensitive people not only survive but thrive in this world.

Below is one of his articles for highly sensitive people:

The 10 Things a Highly Sensitive Person Needs to Be Successful

By Glenn Smith

You as a sensitive person have to accept that you are a combination of Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual energies.

  1. What happened to you when you were young was a learning experience that proved to you how much you could handle. When you feel overwhelmed with what life is handing you now, remember that you are strong. Your sensitive body can withstand a lot.
  2. Listening to your body will grant you the wisdom of cause and effect. Your sensitive body will instruct you when you have made wrong choices and also right choices. How often now does your body react negatively to the choices you have made?
  3. The thoughts you have about hurting the people who have harmed you bring more of the same into your life. Your mind is very powerful. It will create what you think about. Keep your thoughts on the positive. Have your mind work for you not against you.
  4. The beliefs you have about yourself will determine how high you can fly. Monitor your self-talk to determine what your beliefs are. Change your beliefs about yourself and your abilities to the positive. Nothing is out of reach if you believe it to be so.
  5. When you have emotional overwhelm it seems like you can’t handle anymore. Yet every time it happens you do. Your sensitive emotions are being exercised to be able to handle more. With practice you will be able to hold all and more in your space.
  6. The key to feel stable with your emotions is to be secure. The feeling of security to a sensitive person is like the need for water. With out it you would surely shrivel up and die. If you did not have a lot of security growing up, ask yourself what you need to feel it now.
  7. You have the ability to sense the underlying energies of others. This is why it is so easy to be overwhelmed by what you see and hear. This is an amazing gift that will give you a huge advantage over normal people. Once you learn to control it you will soar.
  8. You have a special connection to the spirit world. Although everyone can access a higher power, you can communicate with it. You are gifted with this ability for a very good reason. Listen well to the subtle clues that spirit speaks to you. It will be healing for you.
  9. Remember that there is no such thing as mistakes. They are simply learning experiences and so necessary. You are here to learn and without mistakes you would not learn anything. Embrace them and enjoy them for what they are. You grow with each experience.
  10. As a sensitive person you are uniquely gifted to contribute to humanity. It has been written that, “The Meek Shall inherit The Earth.” As a highly sensitive person you are the meek. You are very powerful and have a big role to play. It is time to get the party started.

Give expression to your Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual self and you will find success as a sensitive person.

Are you the #1 Priority on Your List?

It’s crucial we make our health and well-being our number one priority. Why? Because many of us are busy taking care of others needs first while completely ignoring our own needs. If this becomes a habit, it’s easy to start feeling resentful (even towards the people we love). We can feel like no one truly appreciates us after giving and giving till there was nothing left for us to give.

When we are feeling great and in our optimal state of well-being, things flow easily. Giving become more effortless. Time sort of flies by. Many individuals can tap into this state of being when they are doing what they enjoy.

When you give after taking time off for yourself, you can give from a place of abundance and love.  Others can feel the difference.

Many empaths and highly sensitive people feel selfish when they take time off to take care of themselves. This is cause for concern because we are wired different than the average Joe. If we don’t take care of ourselves, we can’t effectively do what we’re here to do…but we’re not exactly wired to take care of ourselves first.

Yes, we are called towards tasks that require priority attention over our own needs but as an empath or highly sensitive person (HSP) it is vitally important we continue to take care of ourselves each and every day so we can contribute to the world as we are called.

6 Quick Daily Care Tips for Empaths and Highly Sensitive People:

1. Drink lots of clean pure water to hydrate your body and keep it functioning at its optimal. Water cleanses and purifies your body giving you sharp mental clarity. Trust me, you’ll be a happier person with a well hydrated body.

2. Exercise regularly. Taking care of your physical body. Get moving. This helps you move out old energy and bring in fresh new energy. Like water, movement is extremely vital for your well-being.

3. Eat healthy nutritious meals. Consume plenty of dark green leafy lettuce and vegetables. Note: Many empaths and HSPs find eating things that are grown closely to or below ground to be very grounding for them. Some examples are potatoes, yams, carrots, peanuts, squashes, pumpkins, and broccoli. And also some find eating red meat to be grounding for them. Overall, just eat well balanced meals throughout the day.

4. Feel your emotions. Process them as they come up. Don’t just shove it down and bury it. When you do, you actually become more and more numb and disconnected… And it’s not always easy to feel your feelings but do it anyway. These energy in your body needs to be move and transformed. I promise, you’ll feel better, lighter, and cleaner afterward.

5. Talk with positive individuals. Just immerse yourself in their positive energy by being in proximity or enjoying a nice conversation. This also does wonders –for we humans are social creatures.

6. Get some fresh air and sunshine. You can’t elevate your mood as easily when you are stuck inside a building. You are a living breathing creature who needs to be connected to nature –not hidden inside some concrete building with artificial light and air. So go outside. Breathe. And bask in the warm sunshine.

Please welcome yoga therapist, Erica Boucher, as she shares with us some words of wisdom on how to open our body, quiet our mind, and soften our heart.

As the founder of Empath Yoga, a registered yoga teacher, licensed massage therapist, certified hypnotherapist, and life coach with over ten years of experience working with people from all walks of life, she’ll go in depth on how yoga can help release stuck emotions and energy.

Empath Yoga: A New Approach to Emotional Resiliency

By Erica Boucher

Perhaps the biggest challenge in today’s world is to experience all of life – the joy, ecstasy and bliss, along with the disappointment, heartbreak and pain, and still keep an open heart – to remain fully awake, aware and alive. But without this conscious intention, many of us will shut down, become guarded, reactive and defensive. Yoga is a powerful tool to help us not only release tension in the body and quiet the mind, but to also soften and open the heart.

We’ve all been hurt before, and experienced disappointment, heartbreak and loss. Without the knowledge and awareness of how important it is to let this energy move through us, rather than shutting down around it, we begin to let past hurts dictate our future. Physically this shows up with a slouched posture and rounded shoulders as we collapse in on ourselves in an attempt to protect our hearts from future wounds.

From the earliest age most of us have been receiving messages that it is not okay to feel anger, sadness, insecurity, fear, or any other emotion that is deemed negative. For many, this showed up in statements like “stop crying or I’ll give you a reason to cry” or “boys don’t cry”, or even “stop being so emotional.” With these words and others, we were taught that anything other than happiness and joy is not valid, and so begins the guilt and shame that surrounds so many of our lives.

Now, as adults, and after a lifetime of stuffing our emotions deep inside, many of us are brimming over with that which has remained undealt with. Yet it still keeps calling to us, stalking our every move and nipping at our heels, waiting for us to stop long enough to allow all that we have been running from to catch up with us.

This would explain why one of my new yoga clients expressed confusion as to why she couldn’t seem to relax in the evening until she had downed a bottle or more of wine. So resistant was she, like most of us, to being in the moment and risk feeling what rose to the surface that she chose to numb out instead, and this became her nightly ritual, and the only way she could reach a pseudo-relaxed, peaceful state. And she’s not alone in her journey, as is indicated by the fact that there are 14 million alcoholics in America today.

This isn’t the only compulsive behavior we engage in, which is why over 64% of Americans are overweight, or obese. Even with these coping mechanisms, insomnia affects more than half of the U.S. population, with as many as 58% of adults complaining of sleepless nights at least a few times a week.

But perhaps the most alarming statistic of all is that anti-depressant usage is up 800% in the last 10 years. This trend toward disowning what’s coming up inside is affecting us at younger and younger ages, and sadly it is pre-schoolers that are the fastest growing market.

All of this points to the fact that it’s time for us to stop running away from ourselves. True emotional resiliency means giving ourselves enough credit to know we can allow ourselves to feel what we need to feel, confident that once we do, and come out on the other side of it, we will be lighter, and stronger and more at ease than ever before, perhaps since we were children.

There has developed such a disconnection between our minds and our bodies, many of us have become lost in an endless stream of mental chatter that is so busy, we have become like heads walking around without bodies. We become so lost in the thoughts, the story, the illusion, that we no longer have a relationship with, or even feel, our bodies. Yet it is a connection to what is happening inside our bodies that connects us to our center and grounds us.

Most of us believe we are healthy enough if we spend time and energy focusing on caring for our physical bodies, as well as intellectual pursuits. But very little attention is being paid to our emotional wellness, which is the very energy that fuels us, and it affects the quality of our lives. For many, long after they have cared for the needs of their physical body, and stimulated their minds with intellectual pursuits, emotional health is the last frontier.

But this is a beautiful time we are living in. As the world around us changes rapidly, more and more people are turning their focus inward. When the world outside appears crazy, it’s the only place left to go.

And no journey of self discovery can go far without a willingness to recognize what it is we are feeling. In a world with so much mental noise and external distraction vying for our attention, something as subtle as a feeling can be easily ignored. But without a willingness to see, own and understand the subtle energy that moves through our bodies, we can never truly know ourselves.

Our feelings always have a message for us. And if we choose to ignore them our body starts sending louder, more obvious messages which will, if denied long enough, eventually manifest as dis-ease in the body. Denying our feelings is like holding a beach ball under water; it cannot be held down forever, and eventually will push its way to the surface.

All too often we wait until we are on our knees, exhausted from trying to impose our will on a situation unsuccessfully before we are humbled enough to stop, pay attention, and start opening our minds to the possibility of a new way.

The sense of lightness of being that comes from letting go – of the tension we unknowingly hold onto in our bodies, of the restricting old tapes that we replay in our minds, and of the feelings that we have stuffed deep inside – is unlike anything that can be described in words. It must be felt. It must be experienced.

The news from other skilled empaths I’ve been fortunate to come across says, “You can’t turn OFF this sensitivity switch… But you can work with it.”

So exactly…just how do we work with it?

You could probably stay at home and enjoy some private space. But for a majority of us, we still have to go back to places –that’s probably challenging with questionable people that doesn’t necessary energize us to earn a living… and of course run our personal errands too. We don’t have millions of dollars or a huge isolated peaceful estate to hide yet, so just what else can we do to function as our best self now?

With that said, I want to encourage all empaths to share what works for them. How do you keep yourself “clean”, energized, and enthusiastic when socializing and being around others?

That’s what this site is for—sharing and finding ways to work with our abilities.
