Did you know that it is important to rev up your personal energetic boundaries when something tragic occurs or is occurring? It’s actually vital for everyone. If you are a medium or an empath it’s crucial.
Recently I’ve been painfully reminded of this.
When you feel like emotional energy is seeping in through your skin that’s a solid sign that you are energetically too open. It’s time to close yourself down and tighten your boundaries up.
Typically I have solid boundaries. I’ve worked my whole life on them and know where my space begins and ends but the other night, I didn’t do so well. Instead of dialing into my light and revving up my boundaries I overdosed on the sadness of current events and absorbed the frenetic energy bouncing around on the streets of Minneapolis.
Here’s a good visual of the way I felt. Think back to a time in your childhood when you rubbed a balloon on your hair causing your hair to stand up. Wednesday night I was the hair.
I grew up in the suburbs yet my heart has always been partial to South Minneapolis where I lived when I was single. The eclectic mix of people and personalities somehow made me feel at home. The apartments I rented were typically near one of the beautiful lakes and eventually I purchased a home close to one as well.
So I consider myself a Minneapolis girl.
Wednesday night (5-27-2020) I was glued to the news. That was a mistake because as you probably know, there was a lot going on in Minneapolis. There still is. In order to find balance, moderation is key. Frenetic energy is bolstered by fear.
I’m a medium and we feel things in stereo.
Fear had overtaken me so much so that my boundaries were off kilter and I did not feel like myself. The feeling reminded me of times when spirits tried to take over my body but I knew this was not the case. At midnight I paid some bills and decided to return a few emails from friends. Yet another mistake.
Super sorry if you received a message from me!
If you were wondering if my spellcheck was broken I was wondering that as well when I woke up and reviewed my sent messages!
I was trying so hard to do something normal hoping it would make me feel less fuzzy and emotionally overcrowded.
I was too far gone and even woke up feeling horrible! My body was literally vibrating with the emotion radiating throughout the Twin Cities. Like the rest of the United States, I am horrified by George Floyd’s murder and tremendously sad about the wreckage of the streets and buildings in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. George Floyd’s death has sparked protests.
I’m a healer by nature and want to be part of the light that heals.
Not wishing to have a repeat of the night before, and yearning to feel my light, I took a long brisk walk and swam laps. A lot of laps! I was trying to shake off feelings that were not my own and make sense of the ones that were.
Once my body was calm I meditated and dove into my light.
I learned a lot from my mistakes that night.
This is a time of supremely high emotion for all of us and I’m not talking about only those in the Twin Cities.
The pandemic has given us a reason to tighten up our boundaries. We are made more vulnerable in times like these so it is especially important to stay conscious and healthy in mind body and spirit. Simply knowing this helps protect us.
We are experiencing a new normal. As much as we hope it is a temporary new normal we know that the sooner we make peace with change, the happier we will be.
Learning to dial inward is worthwhile.
Our questions can be answered from within. Our intuition is a solid source of knowledge and wisdom. The first step is feeling our light.
*Slow your breathing simply by listening to the sound of it as you inhale and exhale gently through your nose.
*Think back to a time when you survived something big.
*Remember how you felt knowing things ended up just fine.
*Allow that peaceful feeling to move in and through you.
*Know that doing this ignites similar peaceful energy to come forward.
*Remember that life has provided you with solid training so allow your confidence to glow.
*Remind yourself to stay conscious of and care about how you feel.
*Alter the words you say to yourself. Make them nice!
*When you feel good even for a second acknowledge it.
*As those seconds grow into minutes float within them!
*Know that you walk with faith and grace beside you and that the Universe has your back.
*It is within this space that your insights become louder and louder.
For additional emotional alignment try this!
*Increase intake of pure water!
*Find a form of exercise you enjoy doing and do it every day!
*Ditch the electronics for an amiable book before bedtime.
*Intentionally read, say or think about something completely comforting for at least ten-minutes prior to falling asleep.
*Make sure you have something on your bedside table that makes you smile like a photo, quote, or book.
*Deliberately reach for it first thing in the morning and allow yourself a few minutes to enjoy it!
