Being a Sensitive can be both a blessing and a curse… although I must admit, it is much more of a blessing in my life in later years as I learnt more about how to shield myself and protect my sensitivities.
One of the curse aspects of being a Sensitive is being like a sponge when it comes to other people’s energies… so often our feeling burdened and weighed down, or agitated and anxious, actually comes from the energies we have unwittingly picked up from other people. (By the way, I am not in any way talking about being possessed here… or being overtaken by some dark entity… that is a whole different conversation that is better had by someone other than me…)
Given we all have an aura, and a particular vibration within our energy field, we transmit a vibrational frequency out into the world. When we are a Sensitive it is like we have an inbuilt receiver dish that draws in all the energies around us… positive, negative and neutral… It is this that can build up and overwhelm our own energy field.
I have learnt to use a whole range of tools to help me protect my energy field from “contamination” by energy that is not a match to mine. When I am in large groups of people or places where lots of people go (shopping centres, events, airports, public transport etc) I use a pink mirror ball to shield myself… I visualise it being all around me, and any thing that is not of love being reflected back with love.
If I am in a situation where someone is projecting stuff onto me, or trying to get me to take on their problem, I imagine I am in a glass pyramid, and just watch all their stuff go down the sides… that visual barrier stops me from just automatically taking on someone else’s crap.
Sometimes people around us can be what I call “Spiritual Vampires” – again, often unwittingly… these are people who drain us of our energy… shielding will protect you from these people… they are people who often can’t be bothered generating their own life force, so they use yours instead… often these people will approach the world from a victim perspective, and a sense of being owed something…
Cutting “cords” and “tentacles” at an etheric level regularly can ease the drain of these sorts of attachments.
There is no right or wrong way to protect yourself and your energy field… visualising some sort of barrier between your energy field (work on about a 1 metre arc around yourself) is very useful in helping to manage being a Sensitive. The overall effectiveness of this comes down to your intention – if your intention is to protect your energy field, then so you will…
Cleansing is equally important… incorporating an energy cleaning component into your shower is a good option… visualise all the “toxic” energy being washed from your energy field and going down the plug hole. Spraying with essential oil or flower essence blends is also a good option, as is using diffusers, incense or smudge sticks to cleanse yourself and your spaces.
And so, with some simple tools and a positive intention, you can ease the burden of being a Sensitive… and embrace the positive aspects of the gift it truly is….
I could not do my work without my being a Sensitive… being Clairsentient, it is the whole basis of me being able to communicate with Angels and Spirit Guides, and so help others on their journey…
I am thankful that I am this way, although it has made my place in the world that little bit more testing.
