Are you feeling everything Empath?

As an emotional, intuitive and physical empath, it can be easy for me to become overloaded. Being sensitive to energy, sounds, people, smells and the surrounding environment, as well as feeling everything so intensely, it’s clear why one gets overwhelmed by it all.  Sound familiar?

These days it’s difficult to not be affected with all that is going on in the world and in our country.  Even Mother Nature has had enough, with droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, erupting volcanoes… you get the picture.  It’s been constant… political upheaval, attacks on innocent people, the media, fear, doom and gloom has been rampant.  We are being bombarded every day in every way with all this icky gunk.  Many are becoming numb to it all, while others (empaths) are feeling all of it.  It’s sickening, draining, and can feel like the life is being sucked out of you.

So what can be done to help prevent being overloaded? There are numerous strategies that can be applied to help in prevention. I’m fortunate that in my early 20’s, one of my mentors educated me about protecting myself, as I was unknowingly and unconsciously,  taking on feelings and emotions of other people.  So much so, it was difficult to discern what was mine and what wasn’t.  As a result, I became sick several times with empathic illnesses such as anxiety attacks, chronic fatigue, depression and social anxiety.  If you’ve ever experienced this, then you know how much it sucks.

At first I was shocked that I was taking on other’s emotions and physical ailments.  Then it made total sense, as most of the time that I felt ill, was around others who were having a difficult time, who had some dis-ease in their body or simply negative people/situations.  How can this prevented?

I found that meditation and shielding daily extremely beneficial in preventing “burnout”.  To test this theory, because back then, I needed proof. I would at times neglect to shield before going out in public, or stop meditating to see how I felt.  What I found was that when I practiced self-care (meditating, shielding), I was able to stay centered and grounded, without feeling overwhelmed.  When I didn’t, I was simply a mess!

Over the years, I discovered other ways to protect myself, here are some techniques that I use:

  • Earthing, which is the practice of connecting to the earth, barefoot on the grass, hugging a tree, spending time in nature, or visualizing myself as a majestic tree with my roots (feet, toes) going deep within the earth to drink in the energy of Mother Earth. All of these are helpful.
  • Water, taking an epsom salt bath is detoxifying.  Add 1 to 2 cups to a bath and soak for 20 minutes.  Allow your troubles of the day to float away.  The epsom salt also has magnesium which aids in the relaxation process.  Or try apple cider vinegar bath, add 1 cup of raw, unfiltered cider vinegar to your bath.  The vinegar will help release any negativity in your energy field.  Experiment with baths as a way to detoxify, adding essential oils or even gemstones to the water while you soak.
  • Plenty of rest and sleep, the body can heal itself, yet it needs downtime and rest to recover.  Be sure to get enough sleep.
  • Smudge your space and self as it’s cleansing and uplifting.  The Native Americans have always used smudge (the burning of herbs) to cleanse the mind, body and spirit.  I smudge my space on a regular basis and myself especially when I feel edgy. White sage is my go to, but I also love sweet grass and Palo Santo wood.
  • Setting boundaries is important. Without boundaries, some people will continue to push or pull until you reach a breaking point.  Why wait until then? By setting clear, respectful boundaries it’s healthier for everyone, especially you.
  • Utilize  aromatherapy as a way to soothe, calm and ground. Essential oils such as lavender, frankincense, clary sage, lemon, rosemary, and sandalwood are good for this. A diffuser is a great way to infuse your environment with these scents.
  • Wearing, carrying or having specific gemstones or crystals nearby to help with protection. Stones I’ve found essential to my protection and grounding are: rainbow moonstone, lapis lazuli, black tourmaline, amber, and clear quartz.  Other grounding and protective stones include: smokey quartz, black obsidian, apache tear, hematite, turquoise, red jasper, tiger’s iron, fluorite, citrine, garnet, amethyst and tiger’s eye.  Always use your intuition to select the best stones for you.
  • Use a salt lamp. Himalayan salt lamps are chunks of Himalayan salt, hollowed out with a bulb inserted inside.  When they are on, they glow pinkish.  Salt lamps help charge the air with negative ions.  Other added benefits are they help with sleep, allergies, low energy, asthma, nervousness, seasonal affectiveness disorder and more.  They also help to neutralize the effects of emf’s.
  • In order to refresh, rejuvenate and practice self-care, downtime, specifically alone time is necessary.  This is something I learned was essential over the years.  It’s how we heal ourselves.
  • Stop watching the news, take breaks from social media, disconnect from the press.  Doing this will help immensely.  I stopped watching TV a few months after 9/11.  I had to, for my health and safety.  Now after being away from traditional TV for so long, I see right through the programming and how advertisers and the media in general are brainwashing consumers.

By applying these strategies, you will feel better.  Discover what works best for you and explore other ways of self-care. As a sensitive empathic person, take charge of your health and well-being. Be gentle with yourself.  Most of all, know, you are not alone.

And, if you want help, I am here in service to assist you as a coach and healer.

Making of a drum…

Earlier this year the drum I use for Shammanic Healing, was sadly damaged in a drive from the southeast to the northeast.  When I discovered the drum was damaged, I immediately was sad.  Truth is I burst into tears.  The drum had come to me 9 years ago and it became one of the tools I connected with the most. As I was in this moment of sadness, I also started to feel joy.  This tool had been in service for healing for the entire time. It touched many lives, mine included and I realized just how grateful I was.

I was hopeful I might be able to repair the drum, yet was unsure how.  I reached out to a friend who as hosted drum making workshops to see if she might be able to repair it for me. Intuitively she echoed the message that I had received, which was it was time to let go. That it had served it’s purpose. This friend is a wise soul and I knew what she said to be true.  She suggested that I make my own drum, that it was an experience I should consider.

After a few months, I finally ordered a drum kit from Cedar Mountain Drums in Portland, OR.  It arrived two days before embarking on our journey to England. While I had wanted to create the drum under the influence of the total solar eclipse, unfortunately with the soaking time, it had to wait for my return.

While in England, we attended the Conference on Consciousness and Human Evolution in London, which was highly educational and intense. After, we visited Avebury & Glastonbury – visiting the Chalice Well, Glastonbury Tor and the Abbey.  I meditated in the peaceful, loving chalice well garden, then climbed Glastonbury Tor to meditate inside the the tower. While sitting at the top with the Tor, I felt as though I was vibrating.  Combined that with the peace I had experienced in the garden and I felt that my heart chakra was wide open.  I was filled with love and gratitude and was feeling so blessed and peaceful in the moment.  Later I learned that these sacred places are on a “ley line” that is considered the heart chakra of the world!

After we returned from our epic journey, I felt it was time to make the drum.  The drum came with written instructions as well as links to watch videos that were of the drum maker, Patrick Pinson giving step by step instructions while he made a drum. I watched all the videos and found them to be an invaluable tool!

Before making the drum, I created sacred space and smudged the space, hide, hoop and ties.  Making a drum is a sacred ceremony, it was important to be clear to infuse only the best, most positive, loving intentions into the drum.

As I did this, I documented the process some…

Starting to make the drum

All prepped and ready to go!

Lacing the drum

Lacing the drum was next, giving thanks to Father Sky and Mother Earth, breathing into my heart and breathing out of my heart, I continued clockwise, as Patrick had advised.

Lacing and stretching complete

Once the lacing was complete, next was wrapping the four quadrants or four directions, creating a cross, which will serve as the drum handle.

Up high to dry

Having a 5 month old kitten means, if there is something she shouldn’t be into, it has to go higher than she can go.  See the heart? How cool!

Dry and ready to be awakened

It took a solid 2 days to completely dry.  I was so excited to take the drum down and hear it’s sound for the first time.  I created sacred space again, smudging the space, the drum, the beater, and myself, then calling in each direction, one by one. Once the awakening was complete, I continued drumming for as long as I felt moved to.

Consciously making and awakening the drum is an experience I am most grateful for.  I now look forward to sharing the medicine of the drum with others.

Feel free to visit Cedar Mountain Drums if you wish to make or purchase a drum of your own.  Their products and service is exceptional! Please tell Patrick I sent you.  www.cedarmountaindrums.com

*Note: My kit was a 20″ inch cedar hoop with Elk hide.

 

Creating the drum brought me back to my drum circle days. I am grateful to my teacher of the drum, Ray Spirit Wolf.  Ray is the drum keep of an amazing drum.  He shared his knowledge, wisdom and medicine of the drum with several of us, teaching us the ways that he had learned and the songs.  Our drum circle met regularly for almost 3 years. We participated at several Pow-Wow’s in the RI/MA area.  Below is the one group picture of our drum members, taken at a Pow Wow in Lincoln, RI.  We were called Hawk Song Drum.   It was an absolute joy and honor to be a part of this loving circle. I am so grateful for the experience!

Message from the soul…

Sunburst beach

 

When we stop searching outside ourselves for the answers and for our faith and start searching within ourselves, we realize that GOD/SPIRIT is inside each and every one of us.  Once we consciously accept this as the truth, we experience a powerful shift in consciousness.  When this happens our lives transform quickly, as long as we continue to grow.

Things that seemed impossible become a reality, dreams come true.  When our lives align with GOD/SPIRIT within, our SOUL understanding becomes the driving force.  When we open ourselves to LOVE, both to give and receive, it has profound effect on our lives.

By learning to forgive and let go of what no longer serves our highest good, we open ourselves even further.  As this happens, we are often at battle with ourselves, with the ingrained beliefs put upon us by others and ourselves. Learning to recognize  these beliefs, we are able to easily and quickly make adjustments.  Not judging others or ourselves is very freeing.  Our thoughts, which are pure energy change to a higher frequency, one that once experienced, you yearn for more.  Our flesh makes us human and often we must experience pain before we can feel and know joy at it’s fullest.

Learning to keep our thoughts and intentions focused on positive, enlightening, affirming goals and outcomes, one starts to ascend to higher energy levels, attracting like-minded people who surround and embrace the journey with you, understanding that it is not about one, or in this case me, it’s about being a part of the “ONE” in pure LOVE.

 

One Love!

Sherry
