Empaths are very easily affected by other people’s feelings and emotions, so their energy levels are highly susceptible to their energetic environment. Therefore it is vital that empaths learn to properly shield themselves from unwanted negative energy.
So how do you stop unwanted negativity from entering your energy system? How do you comfortably go through your day not being a sponge for all the feelings, emotions and energy of others? It is actually quite easy to shield yourself and maintain your boundaries once you practice a little.
First, you can cleanse your own aura when you get home with sage smudge sticks, or smokeless sage mist to remove any unwanted energy from your day. You can carry stones and crystals that ground you and absorb negativity, like apache tears or smoky quartz, on your person. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you wonder if you are an empath? Many people are empathic and are not aware that they are. An empath is someone with the strong ability to feel the thoughts, emotions, feelings and energy of others. It is a person with the ability to sense, connect and understand on a soulful level with the spirit of another individual on Earth. Below are some of the traits you may have if you are an empath.
You may have a hard time separating between your own feelings and the feelings of others, at times. This is because empaths absorb other people’s emotions and energy subconsciously. Because most untrained empaths do not realize when they do this, it is often very difficult for them to distinguish between their own feelings and the feelings of others, causing them to feel sad at times where there is no apparent reason for it.

If you are wanting to develop your psychic abilities, making time to practice, and developing your own set of psychic symbols, are key to seeing results. At some point, if you’re consistent, you will start seeing evidence that you are opening up psychically. One of the first things that showed up for me was that I started to have vivid dreams at night that seemed to come true.
I have always kept a dream journal and have always been interested in my dreams. I read a lot of books on dream interpretation and analysis and have always thought that my dreams were trying to tell me something. But when my dreams started playing out in real life, I was quite amazed. And this may be the first area where you can get very clear, concise messages from your intuition – from your dreams.

If you have been practicing meditation, opening your chakras and playing guessing games to develop your intuition, you may have started seeing and hearing things that you have questions about. Hopefully, you are also keeping a journal and writing down anything that seems to ‘pop’ into your mind while meditating. Often these are messages from your spirit guides.
As you develop psychically, you usually start to become aware of a presence or maybe multiple presences around you while you meditate. You may catch glimpses of faces, usually benevolent and smiling, while your eyes are closed. Or you may hear a voice, or chorus of voices, usually saying loving things or singing. You can often also feel a connection to all living things in the world, and to the air, the water, and the earth. Perhaps you feel the presence of a greater intelligence that is all around, and within and connected to all things in life. Read the rest of this entry »
Meditation is vital in developing your psychic abilities, as it develops your ability to switch your brainwave states while remaining fully conscious. Frequent meditation specifically helps you achieve and sustain an alpha brainwave state where psychic information comes easier than in the normal waking state of beta.
The theta brainwave state is where most of us fall asleep, but some experienced meditators can achieve this state and still remain aware. This is the state that a lot of mediums are in when they communicate with the dead. I saw an episode of The Dr. Oz Show where he had Teresa Caputo, the “Long Island Medium” hooked up to a machine that measured brain waves (messing up her hair in the name of science) as she read for the audience. She was in a theta brain wave state while she got the messages.
I don’t bill myself as a medium, but I have had some remarkably clear messages from spirit as I was beginning to fall asleep, in that in-between sleep and awake state. Lately, I have been working on extending that state of mind as I wake up, to stay in that theta state as long as I can and see what information I can receive. Read the rest of this entry »
For many years I suffered with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and sought out treatment for it with traditional counseling. Although helpful, it seemed to take quite a long time to unravel and change the symptoms. I suffered with anxiety, sleep deprivation and depression for several years.
One day through work, I met a woman who was trained as a Lakota-Sioux medicine woman. Her name was Irene and she was also a Reiki Master who could do distance healing. She taught classes in Shamanism, as well as Reiki. Curious, I began to take her classes and learn about Shamanism. Eventually, I would also seek treatment for the PTSD from her and have many remarkable experiences. Read the rest of this entry »
The hosts of these shows often say, witnessing the paranormal often brings more questions than answers. Are spirits choosing to stay on the earth plane, or are they trapped? Do they need our help to move on to the next world? I have been fortunate to go on paranormal investigations with teams in California and have witnessed some pretty amazing things. Often getting the answers to who the spirit was in life doesn’t happen, and doing research into the history of the area only hints at possibilities of their identity. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the best things that I have done in my life is to maintain the habit of meditating every day, for a few years now. I can tell you it has been the best thing I have ever done for myself for many reasons. Most people know that it gives you a sense of peace and clarity that lasts throughout the day, but it has also lowered my blood pressure and my heart rate!
I have managed to get off many medications, because of the change in my cardiovascular health. I also have a chronic pain condition and meditation has helped with that too. I’ve always been prone to depression and I am thrilled to report that I haven’t been affected by depression or anxiety nearly as much since I’ve been regularly meditating. Meditation also helps to strengthen your intuition and psychic abilities. So, if you’re trying to develop or strengthen your sixth sense, meditation is a great place to start.
