Do you like being in your body?
Do you feel exhausted everyday no matter what you do? You're not alone, a lot of my clients feel like there's not necessarily a lack or energy but just stagnant energy. Or do you easily get exhausted in crowds and would rather stay home. Maybe you have unexplained back or joint pain. Feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders?
Any of those are enough not to want to feel/be in your own body.
CHANCES ARE IF YOU ARE READING THIS, YOU'RE A FELLOW EMPATH.
We tend to feel everything and sometimes it's too much where we get exhausted or develop painful symptoms. We actually like to float a little bit outside our own bodies great to be fully present.
The people who are sensitive in life my suffer much more than those who are insensitive, but if they understand and go beyond their suffering, they will discover extraordinary things.
We shift our perspectives to viewing the difficult or stressful experiences as just as necessary and valuable as the good times. As well as finding healthy and sustainble coping mechanisms. We (myself included) tend to have our own 'go to addictions' or 'distractions' when we don't feel good or the world seems overwhelming. Do any of these seem to hit a bell?
social media -- caffeine -- junk food -- binge watching tv/netflix -- wine
MY MISSION WITH EVERY COACHING CLIENT AND FELLOW EMPATH IS TO HELP EMPOWER THEM WITH WAYS TO RELEASE (THE TOXIC) AND RESTORE (MORE ENERGY).
top tips + tricks of the trade
- Take a bath - Yes, while this is always my personal go-to solution for most things, baths can be quite healing and grounding. The water washes away all the stress and energy from the outside world that you've absorbed through out the day. I like putting on some relaxing music in the dark or with a few candles and just be. There is something quite serene and spiritual about taking a bath. Don't believe me? Drop a few drops of frankincense essential oil and listen to something like this >> your next bath and report back.
- Shower Visualization - I get that not everyone loves baths like me so I also offer this more active visualization. When standing under the water in the shower let it flow down your head to your shoulders, arms - moving lower down your abdomen, legs and finally washing everything off of you at your feet. As the water moves down and out of your body picture (and even feel it) wash all the stress, worry, anxiety, anger away. Now even as a bath lady, this is powerful stuff and I do this at least a couple times a week.
- Ask yourself - The act of simply asking yourself is this emotion, feeling or physical pain mine? This might take some practice but what you are trying to get at is where is this REALLY coming from? Sometimes it's displaced anger/frustration of your own other times you are picking up on a loved one's or coworker's displaced emotions. It's important to be aware of where/what/why of your emotions so they don't keep building up and up in your body to create more long term discomfort.
