Spiritual Self-Care Empowers The Empath

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comBecause empaths spend a great deal of time experiencing the emotions and feelings of others in a very visceral way, spiritual self-care is especially important for us.

Work, family, friends, and intimate relationships, not to mention current world events, can take a toll on anyone, but they can be especially overwhelming for the empath. That’s why it’s important for empaths to be clear about which feelings and emotions are their own and which are coming from external sources.

Empaths are often compared to sponges, as they tend to ‘absorb’ all the energy and emotions around them. Sooner or later, the empath’s energy field becomes overwhelmed with energy imprints, residue, and attachments, and cannot absorb any more.

Instead of adopting a spiritual self-care routine to maintain their health and well-being, some empaths tend to engage in self-destructive behavior or self-medicate with food, alcohol, caffeine, or even drugs in an attempt to find relief. In the worst cases, this can result in a complete breakdown or worse.

It’s obviously wiser and much healthier for empaths to find a more constructive way to recharge their energy and center and ground themselves. Also, bad lifestyle habits will do nothing to shield your aura from outside energies.

Spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, visualization, divination, yoga, breathwork and journaling help the empath become centered, grounded, and shielded, allowing us to quiet the mind and calm the nerves. It strengthens our connection to the divine and our higher self, creating a sense of peace, clarity, joy and empowerment.

By quieting the mind and deeply relaxing the body, you’ll experience deep states of inner peace and ultimately higher states of awareness and peace. This allows your gifts as an empath to expand into higher states of consciousness.

Additional benefits include improved physical health, reduced stress, increased compassion and optimism, and an overall improved outlook on life.

I believe one of the greatest benefits is the ability to experience this heightened sense of awareness with a new sense of calm and understanding, and not feel drained at the end of the day, regardless of the intensity of interactions or the amount of stress and chaos we encounter on a daily basis. In this empowered state, we are able to interact and connect with others in a truly powerful and helpful way, while remaining at peace and in our joy.

An empowered empath is also better able to sense what energy is coming in and from whom. This forewarning eliminates the feeling of being blindsided by sudden mood swings, disruptive emotions, and energy overload. You begin to intuit these external influences and are better prepared with the appropriate responses to each person or circumstance.

If you identify as an empath, do yourself a favor and start taking the time to truly honor and care for your very sensitive spirit in ways that empower you. Don’t put yourself at the bottom of your ‘care list.’ Take time to practice that which gives you strength and peace and reconnect with the core of your beautiful soul. You will soon begin to sleep better, laugh more often, genuinely enjoy being with and around others, and find work, family and friends infinitely more enjoyable.

By the way, don’t be put off by the term “spiritual practice.” Spirituality means different things to different people. The important thing is that your spiritual self-care routine is something that resonates with you personally and works for you as a unique individual.

Define it for yourself and pay close attention to how you respond to different philosophies, practices, and beliefs. Which ones evoke an immediate sense of relaxation and peace, and which ones draw you in? What intrigues you or captures your imagination?

When you find what is right for you, you will know it immediately. Your body will relax, your mind will focus, your energy levels will stabilize, and your compassionate heart will soar!
