Welcome back to my second post in my empath series. As I discussed in Spiritual Awareness – Communicating through Spiritual Energy #Empaths, there are ways to help us shield ourselves from some of the negative energies that grab hold of us. So today I’m writing about empathic shielding.

How Empaths Can Shield Negative Energies

HOW TO AVOID BEING DRAINED BY ENERGY SUCKERS WITH SHIELDING AND TOOLS TO AID IN CLEARING

As empaths we absorb thoughts, feelings, and emotions of others. We are highly sensitive to energies, people, places, and nature.

For those of us who are empaths and often find ourselves being caught up in people’s orbits who constantly lean to us when their life is in turmoil, just know there is help for us to shield ourselves from being drained by low energies, we have only to learn how to use these tools.

The difference between being empathetic and being an empath is empathetic people feel for someone’s unhappy situation whereas an empath actually takes in the vibes of that someone, almost like a sponge absorbing feelings, and feels their emotion within, regardless of the emotion they are giving off whether happy, sad, angry etc.

When we’re around negative people giving off their vibes and toxic energy, there are a few things we can do to repel those energies from penetrating into our own emotions.

How can we avoid attracting these negative energies when we’re empaths who tend to attract too many feelings? Only what we allow ourselves to give our power to is what can affect us. What permits other’s energy to enter us is when we sympathize with them, leaving us feeling compelled to help. We as empaths, have a dire need to fix people, creating a bond between us and the person in need. We absorb their need for help and that energy stays within us, depleting our own positive energy.

A good head start to avoiding energy draining is to stay protected by first paying attention to our senses. If we begin to feel sensory overload from toxic energy, we must train ourselves to create a mental shield for protection. If we are able to pick up energies, we are certainly capable of learning how to create mental shields. Besides learning how to shield, it’s important to learn to recognize whose energies around us are stealing our good energy and learning how to keep those people out of our spaces. To limit the amount of people who steal our energy, we must learn to practice avoiding such people. But there will always be times when people will enter our orbit and we may not be able to avoid them, and in those times, it’s time to turn on the shielding.

HOW TO SHIELD

In order to stay grounded and not enable bad energies to seep into our psyches we must first ground ourselves and set intention. By setting intention we first focus on our desire to shield and sending good vibes out to the universe. Often, setting these intentions will drive vibrations, sometimes making the negative person wanting to leave our presence on their own volition, not wanting the good we project. But we won’t always get that lucky so we must learn how to deflect.

Picture yourself centered surrounded by pink light. Close your eyes and visualize yourself being poured over with pink light from above your head right down all around you, down through your feet, finishing and sealing yourself in with that light going just below the ground. This ensures you are completely sealed as though you are in a bubble. It may help to envision liquid pink bubbles of light being poured over your head and protecting you like a big round soap bubble. Pink light is ethereal and provides a semi-permeable shield, meaning while it repels negative energies it can still allow your good vibes and loving energy to flow out of it becoming a filter of sorts.

The beauty of shielding is that it can be done anywhere, and nobody has to know what we’re doing. We can be out in public, at somebody’s home or halfway around the world and we have this ability to use it anywhere. We can also use the shielding in our own home when we’re feeling overwhelmed from a guest in our home or from negative energies which may have been left behind after someone left or even if we’re just watching TV and listening to negative news.

At home, we can also use objects to keep our work or living space clean from negative energies by setting up an area we like to spend time in with plants (energy absorbers), negative energy repelling crystals and protective stones, and objects symbolic to us specifically such as: Buddhas or angels or any other meaningful items we desire to provide psychological shielding. If we find we are often drawing in negative energies, keeping protective crystals on our person, in our pocket, purse or under our pillow help to deflect negative energy. You will never see me without wearing a stone or crystal somewhere on my person.

Do keep in mind that we don’t have to wait till we feel like we’re in the midst of toxic energy to begin shielding. We can practice shielding at home and do it as a once a week precaution. Take a good minute to prepare your intention and clear you mind and spend a few more minutes envisioning the shield you cast around yourself and focusing on positive messages. . .

    1. Stevie, you sound just like me! I have become pretty antisocial these days – I limit my contacts as much as I can to people I know are positive, and my life is a lot calmer and happier as a result.
      Deb, I’ve not heard of this pink energy shield before, but I will bear it in mind next time I need it. Hopefully that won’t be soon!

      1. Happy to alert you Deb. It takes practice, but it works. Trust me, I can pick up a negative energy on a dime. I work and worked hard to omit those with negativity out of my life. ❤

  1. Hi Debby – I’ve learnt to keep my own counsel … essential at times – and thankfully seem to be able to cope, and have done over life … I’m certain your advice will help many and I hope they will read and note … cheers to you – Hilary

  2. Great series, Deb. Especially helpful now during such global chaos. I see us as old women weighted down by crystals, tchotchkes, and sage bundles as we navigate our daily lives☺️ Hey, with enough trinkets and herbs clinking and dangling from us in public, people might deem us crazy and keep away! Guess that’s another good aversion tactic. Just sayin’ … Gotta find the humor in the onerous, eh?🥰❤️

  3. I read this with great interest Debby. I don’t claim to be an empath, but as an introvert, I know all about being drained. I have literally felt it happen; particularly from being around a couple of people with significant negative energy. I love your shield concept. I have taken tai chi and qi dong classes for years, but I have never thought to use one of the techniques (3 suns meditation) as a shield. It’s exactly like your pink light example. Thanks so much for my “a ha” moment and I’m going to use it. I also LOVE your keeping a crystal on your person and I am going out to buy one – pronto.

    1. Hi Melanie. I’m happy to hear my post enlightened you. You are halfway there by doing your other practices. So great that you can now just add the shielding part to strengthen your protection. I wear a few stretch bead bracelets on my arm for years now. Find what speaks to you and have properties of protection, and to deflect negative energy. ❤
