At the basis of empathy lies the ability to sense and absorb the energy that emanates from the environment and thus recognize its quality and the message it brings. This ability to sense the energy has its advantages, of course, as it means that you are indeed more energetically conscious and have the upper hand in understanding and controlling it.
However, the downside of being an empath is the risky potential of becoming engulfed in the energy you cannot always be in control of. This is especially true if a high dose of negative energy is being directed your way.
If your vibration is even a bit lower than the incoming wave of negative energy, it has the power to utterly change your vibration to receive its qualities.
Here are 5 ways you can get back on track and improve your vibration.
Being engulfed in different energies that have come from different sources can be too much to handle for anyone – especially for the hyper-sensitive empath. And holding this energy in can alter you in ways you’d never choose to be altered in.
This is why grounding is an especially effective tool for letting all that excess (and more importantly, foreign) energy. The technique is rather simple, really. All you need to do is place your bare feet on the ground and allow all the foreign energy to be taken away from you by Earth’s nurturing and healing embrace.
And every time you feel overwhelmed, you don’t even have to take off your shoes – simply visualize how these energies simply drain away from your body through the feet and leave you in your natural vibrational state.
2. Crystals – Black Obsidian
Crystals are another fascinating gift from Earth that can help you cleanse the excess energy that doesn’t even belong to you. Any black crystal is good for draining negative energy away and creating protection, and black obsidian is one of the most powerful for that matter.
Carry a dark crystal with you wherever you go and take care of it by cleansing and charging it regularly. The crystal’s protective and cleansing properties are at their pinnacle when it is regularly taken care of and cleansed. So, choose the crystal that appeals to you the most and create a connection with it.
Smudging is the process of cleansing and transforming negative energy into positive by means of burning dried herbs, such as bay laurel leaves, white sage, lavender, and many other.
However, perhaps one of the most powerful smudging tool is white sage. With its strong energetic properties, it can dispel and disperse any negative energy knots and transmute the energy into positive.
When you’ve had a very tense day, burning some sage or bay laurel leaves at home is a getaway that will help you recharge very fast.
4. Chakra cleansing
Chakra cleansing is a powerful technique that can be done in several ways and it allows the person to completely reboot their energy and get rid of any lingering negativity.
Working on your chakras starts from the base (root) chakra and the easiest way is to visualize their cleansing and activation in meditation. Simply locate their position with your inner vision and focus on each for around 1-2 minutes. Repeat the meditation daily.
5. Raising your vibration
Your vibration level is the most important aspect of your resilience to negative energy, as no matter what you do if the vibration of the energy source is higher than yours, your energy will be affected and will change to that vibration appropriately.
The best way to raise your vibration is to get in touch with nature and become more aware of the positivity that blossoms from you. Tune into your own rhythm and respect it. Always be aware of your own emotions and acknowledge them as an important aspect of your being.
Your vibrational levels can skyrocket when you start looking at yourself with higher trust and greater love. Simply tune in to your nature and allow yourself to be free of your mind’s boundaries. Be yourself.
