When The Empath Becomes An Energy Sponge

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI just completed a psychic reading for a long-standing client who is a successful teacher,  as well as an empath and psychic in her own right. Despite being highly intuitive and, under normal circumstances, able to make good decisions based on her gut feeling, she was feeling totally at a loss, and in limbo concerning her current circumstances.

She asked me for guidance as to what could be happening to her, because even though her situation is not dire, she described herself as feeling like “a sponge that cannot not absorb any more.” She was feeling no sense of creativity or inspiration, nor any initiative to get the ball rolling for a future move for herself and her family. The Tarot’s Hangman card defines how she felt, as if she was just dangling and not getting anywhere fast.

Both she and her husband had made a big geographical move a few years ago, with the well-being of their children in mind. She was beating herself up, because she also felt responsible for every circumstance her family was experiencing, including her 17 year old daughter, who hasn’t quite yet identified her future career niche. Of course, the additional negative energy of guilt was holding her even more in limbo. To top it all, the schooling of her children and work of her husband requires that she lives and teaches remotely, with a several hours commute away from them, so they can only come together as a family once a fortnight. More guilt!

Her new role in their new country is as a teacher to people who live far from big cities, and, along the way, these indigenous people have lost their sense of identity. There is endless fighting among families within this community, and a serious problem with substance abuse. She has begun to feel directionless herself and has let her own health and well-being go. She’s piled on a lot of weight, which has added to her lethargy. Basically, she has absorbed the additional negative energy of a toxic and troubled environment.

I brought her attention back to those things she had learned on her own psychic journey, about psychic protection, psychic cleansing and the huge impact of being surrounded by negative individuals, particularly for an empath like herself.

You already said it all”, I reminded her. “You are a sponge… a sponge which has no more space to absorb. A sponge stiffened up with accumulated toxins.”

I then made some suggestions to help her focus on the positive aspects of the country they were now living in, as well as the opportunities there, before she organized a major uprooting of them all, for yet again another continent. This was an idea which had indeed already crossed her mind!

First things first. I stressed the importance of getting her creative edge back, in order to manifest change for the future, so that a move together, which suited everyone in the family, could come about. This was by no means a pipe dream, because her family has the skills to fit into many family-friendly towns there. She has simply felt lost and stuck for a while.

So, firstly, she needs to make some personal changes. She needs to focus on her diet and nutrition to clear her body, especially her liver. She also needs to focus on clearing her energy field and be vigilant about psychic protection. And she also has to clear her work and personal space energetically on a regular basis, as well as bless both her private and working spaces each time she enters and leaves, in order to leave a loving footprint behind.

Any physical space can absorb loving, as well as toxic energy from those who pass through it. In her case, I can’t begin to imagine what her overall environment had become in terms of having negative vibes. She was trying to make a difference for people who are coming from a very negative place of substance abuse and conflict. Physical space absorbs the vibrations of all who pass through it. The energy footprints that others tend to leave behind in a space can drain or invigorate us, just like certain individuals do. So, we really can have an effect on others with the individual energy footprint we leave behind.

Can you imagine how positive an effect we could have on others if we simply blessed each space we visited? I was taught that blessings are cumulative and grow each time we bestow a blessing on a place, workplace, person or animal. Try injecting the energy of goodwill into a place, person or animal each time you are in contact with them (you can even do this over the phone, if just a thought projection). You will not only feel better too, but your good intentions will have a domino effect on benefiting others and their environments by shifting stagnant energy and opening up a space into which fresh, vibrant energy can flow.

Furthermore, always remember to first don your own psychic protection before attempting any energy clearing work, and remember your spirit team are right there waiting in the sidelines to assist you – all you need to do is ask!
