Tips For Spiritual Empaths During Mass Tragedies

We are in some troubled times…well, not necessarily troubled, let’s call it a time of growing pains. We’re practically in the dawning of the age of Aquarius when the rise of the divine feminine and masculine join forces. When we lead a more soul centered lifestyle and our choices and decisions come more from our hearts than our head.

During this transition we’re seeing more and more gender identities come about, more corporations offering telecommuting opportunities for their employees, and more functional medicine doctors take up space.  

We’re becoming more of a holistic society with an understanding of what being human is really about.  This causes a lot of disruption in the old school thought process and is causing very rigid and fixed minds emotional instability. And, therefore, more mass tragedies.

This, unfortunately, is par for the course as evolution and growth happens; as we know there have to be breakdowns before breakthroughs.  And it is a process.

And as this happens, more and more people are coming online to their spirituality and seeing themselves in a higher consciousness full of connection to others around them.  And for those who have already logged in to the Universe, they too have evolved into a new level of experience. 

Whether you’re a seasoned or newer spiritual empath who is tapped into energy frequencies it’s a tough job these days.  These growing pains cause a lot of fatigue, fear, stress, depression, anxiety, and frustration. It’s a challenge to be there to support others, when you yourself are in need of an energetic infusion.

So how does a spiritual empath reserve their energy to help themselves and others?  Here are some helpful tips to maintain your own sense of self while being emotionally available to support others.

1-   Shield up: Imagine, picture, think, or feel as if you are encapsulated within an invisible field that you create.  We’ll call this a ‘boundary’ (why yes, that is a bout of sarcasm there!). Within this field you have all of the freedom to move about and operate in your own standard fashion. The walls of this field act like a bouncer at a club, only allowing certain entrances.  Those not allowed to enter are negative thoughts or draining people or situations. Those that are allowed in, are positive thoughts and experiences that bring vibrancy and lightheartedness into your life.  If you’re experiencing an emotion that doesn’t feel good, the boundaries of your shield are too flimsy and need reinforcement. It’s important to ask yourself if the emotion is yours or someone else’s…if they are not yours, kick them out of the club. If they are, it’s time to do some inner reflection and healing to keep those boundaries strong, steady, and firm.

2-   Limit media consumption:  Being a spiritual empath also means being a truth seeker. The media these days isn’t always broadcast with integrity and truth. Listening, hearing, and considering information which may not even be true will only hurt and deepen the emotional pain you may be taking on someone else’s behalf.  As a sensitive human being who has much compassion (often times too much), it very easy to get ‘duped’ and fall into a trap of deception and lies because our heart strings may have been tugged and we feel bad on behalf of or for someone else.  Media is biased towards empathies in certain directions. Media is also geared and directed towards sensationalism.  Coming across information that may not be true can trigger you into spiral of emotions that aren’t even needed, therefore using up your reserved energy and depleting it when you’re putting your focus on something that isn’t even true or real. 

3-   Stay in your own lane: It’s so easy to look at other people and see what’s missing from your life.  Comparing yourself to other people or trying to keep up with the latest fads is exhausting.  You are siphoning out your energy by time traveling either to the past (depression) or the future (anxiety).  This is run by ego and not soul.  When you’re witnessing what you don’t have, you give your inner critic lots of fuel to start driving circles all around your mind and it becomes the stronger voice in you.  You don’t have the time, money, or energy to be concerned with others that have things you want but don’t have, or who are more successful than you are.  What is the compass of that anyways?  We all have different definitions of success, happiness, joy, and safety anyways, which is why life is unique to each of us in our individuality. Embracing our uniqueness and cherishing our differences instead of comparing and poking at them is the new spiritual paradigm anyways. We all, each of us, have a gift to offer this world and by looking outside of yourself doesn’t allow you to tap into it for others to receive.  The best people, things, and situations thrive on soul, not ego.

4-   Pray for the enlightenment and safety of all beings:  Your spiritual awareness and mission is needed to be used at a higher frequency.  Every time you meditate, chant, or do deep breathing, you are manipulating your vibrational frequencies.  That is what will cause change. Prayer is just that: a vibrational frequency that has its own personal frequency.  Praying for or meditating on behalf of the highest good and best for others comes easy to us spiritual empaths. It’s a direct phone line straight to the Universe with no busy signal, pause button, or call waiting.  Praying and meditating for the enlightenment of those who need it, helps assuage future acts of violence to themselves or others. Praying and meditating for the protection and safety of all souls helps every human to feel and be safe in the present.  This also activates the quantum field to produce a future reality by closing the gap between the vibrational frequencies of the present to the future.

And here’s the best part of all of this: IT’S FREE!  

There’s no financial investment in implementing these tips, however the cost of not doing them can actually cause physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual damage to ourselves and the human race.  

When tragedies hit, the collective energy unites in higher vibrational frequencies of sympathy and empathy and can be so painful to feel; for all people, not *just* spiritual empaths. Once the effect wears off and we feel it more personally than collectively, it can be more challenging to be mindful and aware of when we’re not healthily empathing on behalf of others.

When no mass tragedy is in play (which thankfully is MOST of the time), let’s not forget these tips are also super helpful to maintain a healthy human lifestyle. You’ll also be more pleasant to be around.
