The Empath & Clutter: Numbing-out Emotions
Nothing like home renovations to trigger an empath, the need for a sacred space is imperative to an empath, and when it is disrupted, it can be difficult for an empath to recharge.
Clutter will make you tired, and you will find it difficult to think when you do want to get things done.
Our furnace stopped working in March, and this snowballed to start a basement renovation. The basement had been my workshop space for my career as a makeup artist, hair, and wig artist but this all needed to be moved throughout our home.
This, triggered me into several discoveries may be, it is time to let go of this career and all the equipment I need for it. It took me down, memory lane as I started to get rid of things and move them.
I grew up in a cluttered home and often I would be embarrassed and I would run all over the house to clean up before the company came over.
I never understood why this seemed to be a family trait, but I did know that it was an important lesson.
Clutter has a way of creeping in over-time. I wanted to understand why this appeared to be a family issue. I needed to get to the bottom of it once and for all.
I believe I understand now that clutter was a way of being safe as an empath.
The energy from the stuff helped keep the noise of other people's emotions away, as well as our connection to our own emotions so that we never had to deal with them.
The clutter brings up several factors:
The stuff itself gives you something to complain about; it takes up time and space so that you can't have time to do the things you love.
The other thing about it is that every object in your home has the energy that it holds.
When an empath is away from clutter and the busyness, it can become uncomfortable because other information is now able to get through, the energy, of people, spirit, the earth, and your own higher self.
When an empath is ready to let go of the stuff that has been keeping them safe, they often will need help to do it. The emotions can flood in while letting go and, a support person, a friend, family member or a coach are beneficial to help them process the information and the letting go.
They feel so deeply with every item and, any change can be difficult. An empath has difficulty in releasing items because they still have value, even if it isn't of use to them anymore, they understand that it can be useful to others. They don't want to waste something when someone can use it, create money from it and most especially not pollute the planet by just throwing it away.
An empath is very compassionate towards people because they see the value of everyone no matter what the person has been through, their class, their abundance, their stature, age, gender, and lifestyle. They see value in everything. They are often loyal to people for too long because they understand that everyone is capable of having a great life. They want to believe the best of people.
The other reason it is also difficult for empaths to let go is that they want to be helpful to others, always prepared to help, the MacGyver that can pull anything out of nowhere. They don't feel like they are enough, not feeling worthy. So, if they have what you need, they will give it to you just to be helpful or liked.
When you begin to feel worthy, the stuff is easier to release.
I think in my process of looking at this, I realize I came from a family of empaths, who felt so deeply, and had a lack of self-worth that became their self-protection which was passed down, from generation to generation.
