Taking Control as an Empath: 3 Ways to Shield Your Energy

Hey, you! Yeah, you, the one who feels everyone's feelings like they're your own. You're an empath, right? I get it; it's like you're a magnet for every emotional crumb that floats through the air. Sometimes it's cool, like when you absorb someone's joy at a birthday party, but let's face it—other times it's as pleasant as walking barefoot on a bed of nails. Negative vibes? No, thank you.

But guess what? You don't have to just accept whatever emotional cocktail comes your way. Trust me, you can pick and choose. I know, I know, you're probably thinking, "But it's just the way I am." Well, hold on to your witchy vibes, because I'm about to drop some knowledge bombs on how you can take back control. No more walking into a room and instantly feeling like a drained battery, okay? 

1. Acknowledge the Power You Hold

First off, let's get something straight: You're not just an emotional sponge. Sure, being an empath means you're sensitive to other people's energy, but that doesn't mean you have to be powerless. Think of yourself as a radio; you can tune into different frequencies. Sometimes it's static, sometimes it's your favorite jam. But hey, you're the one who controls the dial. Get it?

So, instead of feeling like a helpless puppet caught in an emotional storm, realize that you can actually attract positive energy. No, it's not magic or wishful thinking. It's about setting your intention. 

Before you step into a new environment, whether it's a packed office or a family gathering, pause. Take a deep breath and decide what kind of energy you want to invite into your space. Optimism? Love? You get to decide. 

2. Master the Art of Emotional Shielding 

Okay, this part is a bit "woo-woo," but stick with me. Ever heard of emotional shielding? Imagine you're enveloped by a bubble. Now, not just any bubble, but a badass shield that can filter what gets in. Picture this bubble in your mind, give it a color if you want, and then imagine it filtering out the negativity and letting in only what nourishes your soul. 

This is more than just visualization; it's a form of mental and emotional self-defense. Think of it as your personal ghostbuster against energy vampires. Whenever you find yourself absorbing toxic vibes, just mentally reactivate your shield. Snap! And just like that, the bad vibes bounce off, leaving you in your cozy bubble of goodness. 

3. Connect with High Vibe People

Finally, let's talk about your circle. I don't mean to sound like a nagging parent, but who you hang out with matters—a lot. 

If you're always with Negative Nancys and Pessimistic Peters, guess what you're going to attract? Exactly, more of the same. But what if you surround yourself with people who radiate higher vibrations? Those who ooze love, wisdom, and all that good jazz?

Suddenly, it's a game-changer. You'll find that their energy elevates yours, making it easier to maintain your own emotional balance. It's like having a team of spiritual bodyguards, protecting you from the bumps and bruises of emotional rollercoasters. 

So, go ahead and seek out these human sunbeams. They're the ones who make you feel like you're wrapped in a warm blanket of positive vibes, even when the world outside is more akin to a haunted house of horrors.

See? Taking control isn't about changing who you are; it's about embracing your empathic nature while learning to set boundaries. You don't have to be swept away by the emotional currents of others. Steer your own ship, captain. The high seas of emotion are yours to navigate, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. So, throw on your pirate hat, and set sail towards calmer, more uplifting waters. Because you, my empathic friend, are in control now.
