“Sometimes I think,
I need a spare heart to feel
all the things I feel.”
~ Sanober Khan
Hello, lovely friends.
Empaths and intuitives everywhere will be feeling more tired and emotionally open (read fragile, emotionally hypersensitive, exhausted and possibly moody or broken) right now.
It’s not your fault. There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re just born more energetically sensitive than most. And there are factors at play which are ramping up those sensitivities more than usual.
The earth is currently experiencing high solar winds, seismic activity and solar flares. This bombards the earth with positive ions, making it hard for us to ground. The earth’s crust temporarily holds a positive charge rather than a negative one. This is a big deal for sensitive people.
Part of the way that intuitives, sensitives and empaths process information is through the aura (the energy field that sits around your body). You actually bring the emotional and thought-form energy projections of others right into your personal space in the form of positive ions emitted by the other person’s intellectual and emotional processes. Some of this is conscious as you ‘invite’ people to be close and share with you. Some of it is unconscious.
When we’re tired it becomes a more serious problem because we become more ‘open’ and can unwittingly be bombarded by the energies of others.
Usually we can ground into the negative crust of the earth and the build-up of positive ions is then discharged, but with all of the current solar flare activity this is impossible. Without the ability to clear these energies easily we end up processing them as if they were our own – usually during sleep. So then we wake up exhausted after having been hard at work all night!
On top of all of this we are also travelling through the tail-end of the Ursid meteor shower, and those energies will peak today. This meteor shower might not look very impressive in the sky, but microscopic particles of meteor debris are impacting the earth and will be for the next few weeks.
Meteor showers and dust ramp up psychic and emotional sensitivities in humans and animals. It’s a bit like how a sudden cold wind will raise goosebumps on your skin – meteor dust with its unusual electrical charge seems to raise the ‘psychic antennae’ in us. Petrified wood, jaspers, carnelians and hematite will all help to calm that energy down, and placing them in your pets’ bedding or water bowls will also help. You can also wear or hold black tourmaline or turquoise.
Lavender, cedarwood and frankincense essential oils will calm your limbic system and help you feel more calm and settled.
Of course, it’s also Christmas, a time when we are expected to be more social and to mix with family and friends who might trigger us at the best of times…
What to do?
Put yourself first. Tune in and see what your energy level and coping ability is like before committing to invitations and obligations.
Rest. Withdraw. Go quietly. Surround yourself with people who support you or don’t demand from you. Know that it’s okay to say no.
Avoid noisy and crowded spaces if you are already feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. No choice but to be in that space? Wear or carry a supportive crystal to help shield your aura – choose intuitively from your own collection or pick from amethyst, smoky quartz, lepidolite, black tourmaline, carnelian, sugilite hematite, pearls, turquoise, tiger eye and larimar.
Know that it’s okay to honour your own needs. Come home when you need to. Move into a quieter space or another room if you need to.
Manage sensitive kids and teenagers with awareness for their sensitivities right now. Help them to make sound choices around their sensitivities and listen to them when they say they can’t do something or can’t go somewhere. Support them and support yourself.
There are some blessings with the current energies. It’s a great time for all forms of planning, self-awareness, creative work, meditation and spiritual connection. Use your hypersensitivity in positive ways and see it for the gift that it is.
This is a little video I recorded earlier this week. Perhaps you’ll find that helpful too.
