Empaths are extraordinary and unique human beings. They are the purest individuals on Earth. They are governed by their hearts and have the ability to connect with every living creature on a deep, emotional and mental level.
However, even though their purpose in this universe is to share peace and happiness, protect us and heal our open wounds, their gift is also their curse. It’s a weight on their lives.
These incredibly receptive individuals tend to get overwhelmed and really exhausted when faced with certain intense energies and low vibrations around them.
As a result, the energies they pick up have the power to affect the mental as well as physical health of the empath.
So, even though they sometimes can’t prevent this potential toxicity from entering their lives, there are some important steps empaths can take in order to remove the negativity from their worlds.
Here are some of the most effective self-soothing techniques empaths need to use in order to protect themselves from depression:
1. LAUGH AND DO IT MORE OFTEN
It might sound simple and an obvious thing to do, but that’s the reason why most people tend to overlook the power laughter has on us.
A daily dose of laughter can help you get over everything. Connect with your inner child and surround yourself with people who love to see you smiling.
Our minds will always be loud. That’s what they do. However, the amount of negative energy we allow in our life depends only on us.
And perhaps one of the best ways to calm our busy minds and perplexing thoughts is through meditation. Start practicing meditation regularly, try to find your center and welcome positivity back into your life.
3. LOVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY
And whatever you do, please never give up on true, genuine love. It is the only way you can live a meaningful and peaceful life.
Express your emotions, radiate love… Give love, receive love. Just be love.
4. BALANCE YOUR CHAKRAS
Also, in order to have a proper mediating session and find that peace you were desperately looking for, concentrate on your chakras. We each have 7 of them, carefully placed on the most powerful parts of our bodies.
Together they make the perfect alignment. And when that sensation finally occurs, we allow our life energy to flow through our body and connect with the universal power source. It is a remarkable feeling of harmony and ultimate serenity.
5.FOCUS ON YOUR POSITIVE THOUGHTS
Our thoughts are the most powerful weapon we possess. They can make a man go crazy, yet at the same time, they have the power to make us achieve anything we put our minds to. So, you know what they say… “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.”
6. SPEND MORE TIME IN NATURE
And reconnect with the universal force. Find your peace within and become one with everything around you. The nature. The flowers. The bees. The water. The whole universe.
Spending more time in the woods and will unwind your brain and relax your body. It will give you the recharge you desperately needed. So, if you are a highly sensitive individual, I strongly recommend you make time for a quick trip to the forest.
Especially if you live in an extremely noisy and crowded neighborhood.
7. MAKE SURE TO EXERCISE
Physical activity will not only improve your physical health and body, but it will also help your brain to release its most positive chemicals, also known as serotonin and oxytocin.
Exercising is the ultimate energy booster method!
8. STAY PROPERLY HYDRATED
If dehydration is dangerous for our physical beings, imagine what it does to our mental health.
Make sure to consummate water and use it in any way possible. Water is the greatest elixir of life. Drink water. Take a refreshing shower. Enjoy the rain. Just stay hydrated.
