Have you ever noticed after you spend time with someone who is upset that your mood has changed? Did you think that these feelings were yours? When someone is hurting, it is natural to want to help him or her. We often become a sympathetic ear and they dump all their feelings and emotions out. When we become empathetic to someone, we open up to his or her energy and feel what they feel. If this is common for you then you are empathic. We all need to become more conscious and aware of the energy around us and how this energy can impact our lives and health. Many people do not pay attention to their energy field or for that matter knows their emotions can be affected by someone else’s energy. Once you begin to awaken, you will become more aware and sensitive to energy. Therefore, it is important to notice when you have taken on someone’s energy. Many practitioners ask me if I am afraid to pick up someone else’s energy during a session. When we are in a fearful state, we are more likely to attract the very thing we are afraid of to us. You have nothing to fear, with awareness you can easily let these energies go just by acknowledging that they are not yours. It is that simple. It is important to know that the darkness you see in the world is calling out for love. When you fear the darkness you open up to it and when you offer it love you transform it. So when someone offers you negativity say no thank you by offering him or her love.
