How to tame this wild animal of empathy
Do you struggle to make sense of this amazing ability that has been bestowed upon you?
Our gift of empathy is like a dragon that is a much better ride when tamed. Otherwise, it takes you places and you don’t know how you got there.
I have found that most empaths had a challenging (some might say traumatic) childhood. They turn inwards to comfort and often parent themselves. They were not carefree and were not shown or allowed to have fun and play.
This can cause attachment and co-dependency issues, which is nothing to be ashamed of or afraid of. They served their purpose, it just doesn’t serve you any longer. It could have been a coping tool your caregiver used, if they blamed you, it wouldn’t be their responsibility.
To embrace the full gift of being an Empath there is (99% of the time) healing involved to step into the power you have been given. There is a recognition of others in our lives doing the best they could with what they had (understanding) but that wasn’t good enough (forgiveness and acceptance).
I want to offer the thought of YOU taking charge of your gift, your healing, and how you will BE in the world moving forward.
That feels like such a more powerful place than being at the hands of “others.” Their emotions, crowded malls, cheap perfume, loud people, plastic shit from China, violent movies, or dead-looking food.
If you could look through your eyes as a creator over just taking what is….that is power.
This is the gift of the Empowered Empath. It is a journey. It can “feel” hard but it’s not really. It just feels right, like the one step in front of you that leads to the next step.
Then magic starts to happen. Things start to appear just as you need them. You can be in loud rooms, speak on a stage, handle 5 minutes of small talk easily, and help people, not get drained by them.
I want to share this possibility with you. I see a lot of sharing what hurts about feeling so much and I don’t want you to think that is all the Empath is capable of.
We are so much more.
I have resources
for you including a clarity conversation
(no charge) to start creating your life, not let it happen to you AND a quiz
to see what area is the key to setting your life on fire!
Love and light on your journey.
