Things aren’t going exactly the way you hoped. Just how can you turn it around?

Better yet, how can you use these opportunities to become a stronger person– a more skilled empath?

Very interesting article from Dr. Michael R. Smith on how to use the chaotic occurrences to strengthen our empathic abilities.

Check out this new concept.

Empaths and Chaos – Making Sensitive People Stronger

By Michael Robert Smith

Empaths know that there is deep medicine in chaos.

When I was being trained as a counselor back in the 90′s, I had the “accidental” honor to be trained, at two different institutions, by the only two counselors in the entire country who studied and applied Chaos Theory to people and groups.

Without getting too detailed, chaos theory can teach empaths about how things break up and come back together, and that includes us as empath individuals. Sometimes, in order to be fully whole, empaths must be willing to die to old selves, and be willing to endure having ourselves be taken apart, sometimes through trauma, sometimes through intentional processes. However you get there, when you come out the other side, you come out a stronger empath than ever before – less likely to take on other people’s negative energy and more fully realized as a strong, healthy, conscious empath.

I use these words as an invitation for you to find out more about the power of chaos, the associated animal Spirit Guides such as the coyote, and the spiritual teachings associated throughout the ages, in many traditions, that describe its potent power; power that you can apply as an empath.

Entrainment is a word use in Chaos theory to describe what Native people know happens when people are together in ceremony. We move together. Literally. You, as an empath, know this better than most others. Entrainment is the quickest way to move up Spiritually.

If you are exposed to a certain frequency long enough, you will eventually change your vibration, to match the frequency to which you are exposed. This happens in interpersonal relationships, in student-teacher relationships, in the workplace, in every single interaction in the world. The more an empath knows about entrainment, the better you will be prepared to change others to your frequency rather than have them change you to their negative frequencies.

Dr. Michael R. Smith was once asked during an interview, “There’s many empath out there that sometime involved in addictive harmful habits because of their sensitivity. That they use these habits to cope. Is there any alternative that you recommend for them?”

Michael answered, “Yeah, Yoga!”

Empaths and Highly Sensitive People (hsp) have a sensitive system compared to the majority of the population. If we don’t take responsibility for ourselves we may find ourselves involved in risky behaviors to cope with the sensitivity.

It’s such a sad sight when Empaths don’t catch on to their sensitivity and realize there’s an alternative solution.

It’s important to find alternatives that calm you, bring back your awareness…your presence. I love how Eckhart Tolle said in his book The Power of Now, “If you aren’t present in your house (your body) all kinds of shady characters will show up.”

It’s like a bum sneaks in and crashes in your house. Hooligans vandalizing your home. Graffiti devaluing your property.

It’s basically what’s happening. If you drink, smoke, gamble, binge eat, do drugs, take heavy medications or whatever your unhealthy addictive behavior is… it’s dimming your awareness. And as Empaths & HSP, we highly depend on our awareness to stay present and make sound decision for our highest good and well being… to LIVE.

Without it, we can loose grip with coping with the normal day to day situations. And creating the safe personal zone.

Being an empath can feel like a curse instead of a gift. This is especially so when we don’t know how to deal with it.

Moreover, we can feel like a victim to the different things happening around us… Even feel things going on are bigger than us. Taking in so much emotion, thoughts,and physical pain of others we can feel overwhelm and over consumed by the intensity.

… and we wonder “Why me?”

When it feels like it’s just too much, this one phrase could help you put things into perspective.

“We all are affected by each other regardless if we are an empath or not. You affect me. I affect you. Even if some of us can not sense it  to the degree and intensity as we [empaths] can, never the less, they are affected. Because WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. ”

I picked this up from a good friend and teacher of mine, Dr. Michael R. Smith. If you want to learn more about being an empath and how to work with your gifts and abilities, or simply just need more guidance, or pick on a skilled empath’s brain (who has over 15 years of experience in helping empaths and highly sensitive people (HSP) connect with their highest self bringing out their full potential) I highly recommend you to get a copy of his ebook The Complete Empath Toolkit: 44 Practical Steps to Master Your Energy and Personal Power. It’s a life saver!

He is truly a gift and inspiration to us fellow empaths for the work he does. We can always use more people with loving heart and patience. Michael is definitely shaking up the world with his work. I invite you to join us in the journey of discovering your unique abilities.

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.

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.

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.

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.
