No One Really Understands An Empath?

Sometimes as much as the people who loves us want to understand what it is that we are going through, they just don’t know. No matter how hard they try. Yeah, they can be empathic and pretend how it would be like to be in our shoes and understand it that way. It’s nothing like the way we do it.angel statue

When we say we understand them. We mean it literally!

I mean, we can feel what they are feeling…emotionally, energetically, and physically! We are not pretending. Our body aches where they ached and we feel their emotions up and down.

As much as they want to try to understand. They just don’t. I can’t blame them. They are the way they are. Just as we are the way we are.

Which is why it’s so important to talk to another who is just like you and me. Who is also an energy sensor.

Let me tell you. It gets lonely sometimes. Even though my husband is also an empath. It’s just not enough, we need more than one outlet to connect.

It’s crazy when I think about it, because there is so many of us out there yet we are all isolated. Pockets here and there. It’s just our nature to want to be isolated and far away from the crowds. Nevertheless, there’s is still a lot of us out there. And sometimes we just want to know we are not alone. Completely alone.

I moved out here to a small remote island in the Philippines and sometimes it drives me a bit crazy. Especially, when I have those intense sensitivities…and I feel like the world gets way to big for me to handle.

Ever had one of those moments?

And you just need to bond with those who knows what you going through. Connect. Just to say, yeah I understand. I’m not COMPLETELY alone on this experience. It’s just so sad because there’s so many of us out there who are probably feeling the same. Feeling like we are the only one going through this or that experience and no body to really understand what we are feeling.

That’s why I made EmpathSolutions.com in the first place. So people like us can connect, bond, and share things that work for us to help us work through such experiences. And to not feel like we are an alien on this isolated world…ALONE, and no one understands us.

I invite you to get active on the website.

And besides this, I will be doing my first telesiminar where i can answer your biggest question or challenges as an empath, please email your questions to faey(at)empathsolutions(dot)com.

I can’t know if you don’t ask. No telepathy powers for me just yet. 🙂

Introduction to Yoga – What is Yoga?

Watch this informative video below from QuarkTech Inc. They explain more in depth the practice behind yoga.

So, what is yoga?

“Yoga, this ancient Sanskrit word means to join, to unite or simply the union; it’s all about uniting the body and soul, it’s about merging the mind into the body. For many who take it up, Yoga is a sport, just another fitness option. Maybe they are not aware that the physical aspect of Yoga is only a small part of an entire approach to self knowing. Yoga is about taking the human body to the heights of spirituality. It aims for the perfect union of body, mind, and spirit, through a system of postures, breath control, sounds, meditation, and other practices.”          –QuarkTech, Inc.

How To Stay Positive When Surrounded By Constant Negativity

Sunflower-in-VasePlease welcome Janeen Clark. A Spiritual Life Coach, who has been teaching, studying and applying the Law of Attraction for almost 20 years. Below is one of her inspiring articles I like to share with you today:


Law of Attraction: How to Stay Positive When Surrounded by Constant Negativity

By Janeen Clark

Wow! You’ve just got to love these recent newspaper headlines and news broadcasts, don’t you?

According to them our world is completely falling apart. Oh wait…that’s right, according to them it is always falling apart…Oh well.

Shocking how we somehow keep surviving isn’t it?

It is not only the newspapers that surround us with negative thoughts and energy but also the people we work with, friends, and even family members.

So how are we supposed to maintain a higher positive vibration when almost everyone around us is predicting doom and gloom for our future and our economy?

The following steps might help:

1. Go Back To Appreciating The Basics

If you have food you can eat today, clothes to keep you warm, a roof over your head, a mind that works and a heart that is still beating – you are GOOD!

Anything beyond that can be considered an added bonus.

It really doesn’t matter if the food is not lobster, the clothes designer, the house a mansion, you don’t have the perfect body, or the perfect romance. As long as you have the basics listed above you will be able to obtain the rest.

Do not waste your energy thinking negatively about yourself because you do not have some of the extras just mentioned. There’s always tomorrow and you’ll find a way.

2. STOP Reading The Papers And Watching The News For Awhile

Simply STOP! Even if it is for only a couple of weeks. Turn it off. Play music instead, watch some of your favorite comedy DVDs, listen to inspirational books on tape. Don’t worry about missing anything. I promise you, next month they will have the same exact horror stories in the paper – it’ll be like you never left.

3. If You Have The Ability To Leave A Negative Conversation – Run For The Hills

Here is the scenario. Someone starts the conversation about how horrible things are in the world. You respond in agreement, so do the others in the group. Now you all feel the fear.

Depression and hopelessness settles over the group. The subject now moves to politics. You all disagree with each other (which of course you do because it seems lately NO ONE can agree on the politics thing.)

Now you all get angry. You yell, call each other naive, strive to get your point across but nobody hears it anyway. Now you all walk away angry and frustrated.

So where did this conversation get you? Depressed, hopeless, fearful, angry and frustrated. And guess what? Absolutely nothing was accomplished! Nothing has changed in Washington. You didn’t solve the housing crisis or lower gas prices, but you probably just made enemies with some of your best friends or family members. So what is the point?

Decide that you no longer want to participate in these useless negative battles. Life is too short to spend it arguing with loved ones when nothing get resolved anyway. Besides, it certainly isn’t going to help you keep a positive vibration. Go do something that will make you happy. Go online to a comedy site – go read a book. Keep in mind that maintaining a positive vibration is the healthiest and most important thing you can do for yourself right now.

4. If You Do Not Have The Ability to Leave A Negative Conversation – Put Yourself In Your Own Happy Mental Bubble

Now let’s say this negative conversation takes place over a business dinner or around the Thanksgiving table and leaving is not an option.

Put yourself in an invisible Happy bubble. Inside this bubble you are always peaceful. You are not affected by what is going on outside of it. You may observe, you may listen to what is going on, but you refuse to participate in any way.

Imagine that you are watching a fictional movie. None of what you are hearing is affecting you personally. It is simply entertainment. Hum you favorite song in your head. Think of a funny memory. If someone asks your opinion tell them you weren’t paying attention. You were in your “happy place”.

They might look at you like you are crazy or attempt to draw you in to the conversation anyway, but eventually they will get it. And the next time they are arguing and see you with that silly smile on your face they will simply inform the others “Oh don’t bother with them, they are in their happy place” and you go back to having fun.

5. Don’t Let The Nay-Sayers Get To You

Keep in mind that according to people the world is “always” falling apart. You could go back 100 years or more and you would hear the same exact complaints you hear today. “Things are getting way too expensive”, “the next generation is so spoiled”, “the next generation is so disrespectful or irresponsible”, “there is no one good to vote for”, “the economy is in trouble”, “an energy crisis looms”, and the all most important “this country is going to hell in a hand basket” scenario.

Here’s the deal. Energy moves and changes constantly. It always has and always will. The people going through those energy changes have always felt uncomfortable when those changes come about and automatically assume the outcome is gong to be negative. Yet, we are all still here and creating more than ever. In fact we have more conveniences and are more technologically advanced than we ever thought was possible in so short a period of time.

Don’t feed into the “fear of the future” nonsense. Change is normal. Change is good. Change is growth. Go with the flow instead of fighting it. Look for the opportunities these new changes can bring you instead of fighting the current and trying to keep things the same; because the truth is, things are not going to stay the same anyway.

6. Remember That Even In Times Of “Crisis” People Can Be Successful And Flourish

Just because you hear about the negative around you, doesn’t mean you need to be affected by it personally. There have always been people who have prospered during what others called “hard times”. People who were successful even when there was a war on, when real estate was depressed, when there was a recession or even the Depression.

Decide that not only will you not be negatively affected by the changes going on around you but that you are absolutely going to find a way to prosper from them.

Think positively and constantly ask your higher self, “What move can I make right now that will make me prosper?” Keep asking and asking. Suddenly inspirational thoughts will seem to come out of nowhere. Keep your thoughts on possibilities – not fear.

Focusing on fear only lowers your vibration and makes you much less effective. Keep your mind and eyes open for opportunities. Keep your vibration high. Remind yourself daily that you are safe and healthy and abundant regardless of what is going on around you. Which leads us to…

7. Remember Who You Really Are

Remember “You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience”.

When you keep this in mind, you remember how big you really are and where your true power lies.

You may be “on” this planet but not “of” it – which means the planet does not dictate what happens to you – only you can do that.

Fear comes from thinking that you have no control. That others are making decisions that affect you and there is nothing you can do about it.

But that is not the case. YOU create every experience you have while down here and YOU decide what you are going to create.

This is the most important thing of all to remember.

Imagine it as if you are going to an amusement park for the day.

The “park” doesn’t decide what you are going to do all day – You do. You decide the rides you want to go on or the rides that don’t interest you. Just because the rides are “there” does not mean you are forced to go on them.

The same with our planet. Just because the “negative experiences” exist, does not mean you have to participate in them. The choice is up to you.

So go be positive, look ahead. Find ways to be abundant regardless of what is happening around you. Keep your vibration high. Do something everyday that increases that vibration until the momentum is so great that you are manifesting wonderful things almost instantaneously! The power is in your hands.

Happy Creating!

Overcoming Darkness by Creating Light

Words of wisdom for all Empaths and Highly Sensitive People from Dr. Michael Smith.

Empaths and the Shadow – Overcoming Darkness by Creating Light

By Michael Robert Smith

Empaths understand, as walkers between worlds, the polarities of Darkness and Light.

Every single thought carries energy that affects ourselves as empaths and others. Empaths know and understand this unlike any other individuals, because we take the brunt of other people’s negativity. We feel it in our own energy fields.

Empaths often will hear the very not-so-nice words and literally experience the not-so-nice energy that has been created by others. The mere act of walking into a chaotic restaurant or department store is all that it takes (thus, empaths avoid crowded places like the plague).

Negative energy stays around. If left unchecked, it will accomplish its mission of advancement of the Darkness. One simple negative thought will linger unless we recant those words and take responsibility for our own karmic negativity.

If we do not face the Shadow side and learn to become friends with it, then we will never learn to grow past it, nor be of any real help to others. The shadow side is an invitation to create Light. It can NEVER be changed or altered by merely ignoring it or by running away (which empaths tend to be very good at). The Shadow and Darkness are strong signals that we need to do everything in our power to Create Light.

The goal of the work I do is to teach empaths to be better Light Creators. It is our responsibility to ourselves and to others. Creating Light is done through pure prayer, patience, and finding others who are stronger on which to temporarily rely. We cannot accomplish our Collective task as humans and as empaths unless we help each other. That means asking for help when you know you need it – putting aside your ego. I struggled for many years by myself in isolation, thinking that I had to do it all myself. Only when I dropped that belief did I receive the help that I needed, and get to a place where I now am thriving and not a victim anymore.

It’s my belief that empaths have asked for this experience, and here we are Now with a job to do. Accumulated negativity (otherwise known as Karma) is never altered unless we have a stronger Light energy to absorb it and transmute it. Thus, the power of prayer and intention.

Prayer from a pure and humble heart is strong enough to erase and diminish any negative energy. However, many times it will take years to be enough to overcome the Darkness. This is the not-so-fun aspect of Karma, and of being an empath, sucking up everyone else’s negativity. And yet with patience, it WILL be overcome. That is a Universal truth.

I write these words to offer you encouragement to endure and persevere over whatever hardships that are currently Testing you. There is nothing that is strong enough to break you, unless you let it. And if you let it, then you may just get to come back into an earthly body again and do it all over again, until you get it right.

Go for broke this time. You’re an empath with a job to do.

Face you shadow – clean yourself up. And most importantly, ask for help! This time, let’s all get it right!
