An empaths childhood
You were often told as a child that you were too sensitive!
You were sensitive to the news, stories, and events that adults didn't feel affected by.
You deeply wanted to fix things that make the world a better place for all, It would affect you by feeling it in your body and you would easily cry.
You were often bullied because you cried so easily.
Often feeling physically sick or depressed especially when you felt unheard when you tried to express your concerns and even solutions.
You are amazing at creative ideas and solutions.
You were told not to worry and that you are too much in your head
This caused you to begin to doubt your intuition, not trust what you were feeling and you started to believe that you were too sensitive.
This is how we began to doubt our abilities to feel and know what is true.
We were told to toughen up, or don't worry about things that are happening in the world. As a child, this is so difficult because in our purest form we care so deeply and want to fix the world but just didn't have the capability to know how to do it.
When we became old enough, we just didn't know that we had the capability to change things. Over time many empaths began to numb out their sensitivity by keeping background noise on all the time like music or TV, eating too much, drinking too much, shopping too much or anything that would keep them busy to not feel.
At some point, an empath will come back to the realization of who they really are but often is through the dark night of the soul or some major event that wakes them up.
This year 2020 is helping us to remember that we are sensitive and caring people. It gave us time to pause, it gave us time to feel, it gave us time to see what is not working in the world and can't be ignored anymore.
It is time to remember this is who we are as an empath we feel deeply and care about others.
There is nothing wrong with being sensitive and that gives you great power to change things in the world and to heal yourself because you allow yourself to feel.

Why is it so important to be grounded in your own body? How do you know when you are not in your own body?
If you often feel lightheaded, or foggy then you most probably are not grounded fully in your body. Now this can get a bit confusing and you may think that you are not well which is a possibility too but using some grounding tools will help you discover which one is present. The reason it can be confusing is because sometime when we are not well we will leave our body just enough to not feel the pain. This can be from emotional and physical trauma too.
Here are few reasons we can become ungrounded:
Meditation: If we spent time in our upper chakras and/or traveled during our meditation and we did not give ourselves a few minutes to ground before we get up and out of the meditation
Past lives: Being still connected to past lives can keep us feeling floatie
Stress, trauma and Illness: When we are feeling uncomfortable or in pain we will leave our bodies for protection and often even after the event is over with we still have not full connected and grounded into our bodies.
Dreaming: Often our spirit will astral travel during sleep and travel throughout earth or other planes or dimensions. When the spirit returns it may not be fully grounded, this sometimes can happen if you wake suddenly. If you have ever dreamt of falling downstairs or flying then you probably have traveled. Sometime your body will jump with the re-entrance of your spirit.
Some of the symptoms of being ungrounded are:
If you have experienced any of these then you need to get grounded. In general, it is good practice to ground daily anyway but here are a few options you can do:
Try any of these the next time you are feeling ungrounded. These are great tools to have when you are going through stressful times to help you think clearer.
The energies at this time can feel quite intense with all the anxiety people are feeling. Being an empath being super sensitive to those energies it is important to release yourself and the others energetically.
One of the ways you can do this is to cut cords of attachment. We create energtic cords with anyone we have a connection to which can occur in several ways; meeting people, talking to people, thinking about people or them thinking about us or that person who cuts you off while driving. Not all cords are bad however, good or not they are draining to an empath.
The biggest thing is to be aware that this happens everyday and cutting the cords with everyone is healthy for you and for them.
There are a couple of ways that you can do this, but first you want to call in your healing, guiding and protection spirit teams in to assist you and that would be whoever you tend to work with but many ask for the assistance of Archangel Michael because he is a great protector and will assist you with his golden sword. Imagining Archangel Michael sword cutting all cords of attachment that you have had with people. You can also imagine a giant pair of golden scissors.
When you have cut the cords as for all energy to be return to who it belongs to and transmute all energies to love.
Our intention is only of love and light and wanting the best for all concerned even if you may have had a negative experience with them. This is the only way to be fully released from each other.
I strongly suggest doing this daily right now to release anything that has come up and if you do watch the news please do this right after so that you do not take on that energy.
The benefits of doing this daily will help your from taking on any ailments, we all have our weak spots in our bodies that are tells, when we are out of balance and we can become fatigued when we don't look after ourselves.
When we take care of us we have the strength to help others.
