365 Letters to Myself
September 2nd, Empathic...
I am so grateful to be more aware of my empathic tendencies. Before being educated by my energy healer that I have this characteristic, I did not identify with combined feelings (that consumed me) of overwhelm/problem solving/helplessness/out of sorts – that could be traced back to the intuition and sensitivity of taking on the feelings/issues of others (individually/nationally). Now when I start to have signs, like an unexplainable ‘sadness’, ‘how can I fix this’ drive – I can stop and by rechanneling my mindset alter my state.
A long explanation to say, I found myself needing to do so this morning! A little help from a good meditation…I focused on what is within my ability and I reimagined what may possibly be in the best interest of all. Today, it was a reminder that taking on other’s feelings, solutions can be a disservice to them. It’s obvious, when we do not allow someone to experience the moment, how do they learn and more importantly choose (what next). I was also reminded to take care of me – a nice shower/bath, walk, water, etc. Surprisingly quick for an episode (sometimes it can be a day or so before I recognize what’s happening), I found myself at a better place, motivated, positive and energized. It’s been a good day!
Hmmm, I feel for you…day 50!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
