As an emotional empath, I feel the earth’s evolutionary shifts expanding my sensitivity in ways that challenge my being. I feel people’s emotional energy, fear, chaos, and I sense emotional congestion held in landscapes.
Often, I find it necessary to seek out water and flowers to balance my body, my emotions, and my sense of wellbeing. I am drawn to the waters near me—Vancouver Lake, Columbia River, Whipple Creek’s little waterfalls. I am drawn to the healing hues and subtle energies of garden and wildflowers.
As an extremely open person (in an energetic sense), I have to set strong, clear, and healthy boundaries to feel okay. I set boundaries in my daily physical world as well as on emotional, mental, psychic, etheric, and spiritual levels. (I’ve gone through periods of exhaustion when nature spirits were requesting help 24/7!) I am learning to be discerning about who or what energies are invited into my life. I practice being assertive in standing my ground to hold clear, sacred space for myself.
I want to stay open. That is my nature.
Around the full moon when the water and emotional tides are high, my heart needs support to fully process my deep emotions and clear the collective emotions of humanity I tend to feel. My energy can feel pent up inside. I contract. And, I witness my overwhelm, deep sensitivity, and places of imbalance with compassion.
To drop back into my heart, I go to the water. I make an offering to the spirit of water. I open to receive.
Near water, I cannot hide my feelings. I must be honest with myself and let the masks go. I allow what needs to surface to feel my truth and allow my inner-child space and permission to express herself. I honor my true emotional nature.
The water elementals and mermaids sit quietly on the banks of the river encouraging me to shed my tears, move back in the space of an open heart, and receive healing or peace. The sound of the water falling over the rocks in a stream, the tap of rain on my roof, the feel of thick fluid effervescence in my fingers and toes restores my energy and sense of calm. When I allow surrender, water brings me serenity, healing, and renewal.
Flowers are another favorite remedy. Flowers draw me into their magical healing realms to soothe my soul. Subtle energies dance in my being and infuse higher frequencies of joy into my being. I feel fed and nourished in the presence of flowers. Their colors inspire my creativity and awaken something deep within me that longs for self-expression. The flowers give me permission to dance, paint, play, and create!
Lilies and yarrow are flowers have been beautiful allies in helping me create a stronger energetic container for myself (my aura). The refined high frequencies of lily flowers enhance a sense of worth and the space to honor my self-sovereignty. Not only does Yarrow (as a flower essence) knit a stronger auric field around me, it actually encourages my vulnerability in a safe way.
My spirit guides share wisdom about the colors of a rainbow. Every color is medicine and is necessary energy for our bodies to be healthy and whole. Flowers feed and nourish our energy bodies with their colors, subtle energies, and beauty. When I am hungry, sometimes I am hungry for color and mystical connection with flowers.
As an empath, I require extra care and balancing to feel good in my body and in the world. When my energy feels off, I need balancing remedies and tools to help me find my way back to inner-peace and well-being. I want my medicine to be fun and pleasurable. Flowers and visits to waterways offers both. And, it helps to shower myself with gratitude and self-love in order to fully receive the magical healing and nourishment from the water elementals and colorful flower devas and fairies.
