We all like to think that we are sensitive to others and indeed many of us are kind, compassionate souls that will put others before ourselves and want to see others happy.
There are however those of us that pick up on everyone’s energy and our bodies learn to absorb absolutely everything, to the point that we are a sponge for those around us and they carry on their lives ‘dumping’ their energy on us without either parties being aware of it happening.
I have known loving kind wives get incredibly sick because they have carried their husbands energy for them and I have known children absorb for their parents too. Strangely it is often women that absorb the energy and men tend to be more efficient at letting go but this is not exclusive to women by any means and least we not forget the energy that gets past down from generation to generation.
Learning to own our lives 100% means we do not have to absorb the energy of others because we learn to allow them to take responsibility for their own lives too. It is often however not until we get ‘sick’ ourselves that we learn how important it is to only own our energy and to remain there to hold the space for others but to empower them to own their lives and their wellbeing too. In truth by absorbing others energy we are not helping them in any way simply allowing them to hide from themselves. When you are conscious you are absorbing another energy, return it with love so that they may unravel their onion layers and evolve and grow too.
Being a true empath requires you to really look after your wellbeing and to have the people and the tools in place to help you release the energy that gets stuck in you and keeps you aligned with your own mind, body and soul.
