Empaths are extremely powerful human beings who’ve been gifted with the everlasting ability to perceive the world through the eyes of the soul. These creatures were created and brought to Earth to connect with us, on a deeper, cosmic level.
They possess an intense emotional energy and a remarkably intelligent mind. They see things that our average human eye would never perceive. They are more than sensitive human beings. They are guardians of our Universe.
However, even though their unique nature is truly a gift, living life as an extremely perceptive individual has its own harmful consequences.
Their extraordinary skill to see beyond the physical world can sometimes leave them exhausted with no energy left to move on.
This is why, it is important for all empaths to understand their abilities, and use them wisely in order to protect their wellbeing.
These are some of the most effective self-soothing and grounding techniques for every highly sensitive person out there:
1. AROMATHERAPY WITH RELAXING ESSENTIAL OILS
The power of healing with aromatherapy has been around for centuries. Alternative medicine is probably one of the best ways to maintain a balanced and healthy condition.
Ancient tribes have developed the science of fragrances. Scents were carefully extracted from all kinds of herbs, plants, roots, leaves, flowers that had a therapeutic effect on humans.
Lavender, bergamot, chamomile, frankincense are some of the most common herbs that will help you relax your busy mind and soothe your soul.
2. SPENDING TIME WITH YOURSELF
An extremely overlooked activity, yet very important part of our lives. It is essential for all of us, not only empaths that we spend some healthy ‘ME’ time.
No matter how busy we are during the workweek, there should always be enough time for a stroll in the park, a relaxing evening with a book or some quiet time with our thoughts.
One of the most harmful consequences empaths face is bringing a negative energy inside their homes. Because once this energy finds its place, it will only continue to grow.
So, if you feel somewhat different and exhausted, smudging is one of the most effective ways to cleanse your home from any dark energy. It can be done with white sage, Palo Santo, copal frankincense, or Nag Champa.
4. STAYING PROPERLY HYDRATED
Another natural element that it is known as essential for life is water. Water is the eternal elixir of youth, health, and wellness. We are all aware of the incredible number of benefits water has on us.
It helps us function, increases our energy, nourishes our skin, boosts our immune system and so much more.
So, it is extremely important to use and consume water in any way possible. Cleanse your body and wash it from any negativity, drink more water, let the rain wash away your difficulties as you become one with nature.
5. CREATING HEALTHY BOUNDARIES
One of the most crucial steps on the journey of self-love is creating healthy boundaries. Focus only on the things that make you happy and help you grow as a person.
Anything else that sucks out your energy should be eliminated as soon as possible. Protect your world from vile individuals and dark entities.
6. LEARNING TO SAY ‘NO’ MORE OFTEN
And the most effective way to start setting those healthy, essential boundaries is to learn to say no, more often. You should do anything you wish to do. You should never force yourself to do something in order to please someone. That is like pointing a loaded gun at your head.
When something feels wrong, don’t be afraid to stand your ground and say ‘NO’. It is your life and your wellbeing we’re talking about. There isn’t anything more precious than that.
Another incredibly effective way to calm your mind and cleanse your soul is meditation. A regular meditation will help you find that inner peace you’ve been desperately seeking.
Try to make meditation a part of your daily routine, even if it’s a session that lasts only an hour. Once you do this, you’ll start noticing the effects it has on your sleeping, breathing and your overall wellbeing.
