Understanding and Working with Your Energy Gifts

When you have energy gifts, it’s often very hard to be engaged in the modern world the way you want to be.

You can have challenges with family, working in an office, and may become overwhelmed when there are large groups of people around.

As sensitives, we take energies on and become depleted. In response, we try to protect ourselves by hibernating and unplugging. We avoid large crowds, public places and retreat from social gatherings (and a lot of times, we take these actions out of instinct, almost unconsciously).

For many, feeling out of touch on the outside, and negative, seems “normal”. Even though your life is going the way it should be…feeling down, unmotivated and depressed is the overriding pressure. Seeking highs to compensate for all the lows you’re feeling may become your focus of attention.

Empaths, Intuitives and HSPs often share these characteristics and experiences:

  • Feeling the pain and emotions of others; those that are nearby as well as the suffering of the world overall.
  • Being in defense mode to try and block and shield the pain that is coming at you.
  • Difficulty trusting others since what they say often doesn’t match what you feel from them as being the truth.
  • Receiving messages and/or having prophetic dreams, but not understanding why these messages are coming to you, and what you should do with them.

“The [emotions] you feel are the myriad colours of life; they form the shapes and patterns of living through the weaving of the threads and we are some of the weavers.”

When you’re an Empath, Intuitive or HSP, you’ve been given additional sensory perception, and the pain and suffering you’re feeling was not meant to curse you, but to wake you up to what you are; so you can experience your potential, have understanding and help others!
You can learn how to keep from being and feeling overwhelmed by the forces you sense. You can learn to fill your space with your energy, so you can recognize the energies you’re feeling and not only know what they are and where they are coming from, but what you’re supposed to do with that information, without losing you in all that you feel.

As an Empath, HSP, and Intuitive, your ability to use your gift is central to living your purpose.
