If you’re an empath like me, you probably know exactly what I mean when I say, you’ve been energetically slimed! You don’t have to know the verbiage to connect with this concept though. We’ve all been on the receiving end of energetic slime. You’re going about your day, feeling great, spreading light and love to everyone in the world and BAM! You encounter someone, have some sort of energetic exchange through conversation or otherwise with them, and suddenly after that encounter you feel zapped, depleted, possibly worried or anxious and reeling about how you said what you said, or did what you did. Sound familiar?
Years back, I was learning how to be an empathetic sponge, and take good care of my own energy. I made a video blog to document what helps me. See vlog below 🙂 Since that time, I still use these tips from this video to this day!
Over time, the best form of defense I’ve found in protecting my energy, is in fact, to be grounded in my own energy. Knowing where you start energetically, and the other person ends is so important. Having, and setting loving, strong boundaries, is an act of self love. Even though others may be disappointed when you can’t fill the void that only their true source can, you can give from a pure place without resentment, and believe me it will be felt.
With all of that being said, it’s also so important to notice when maybe you’re pulling on others energy. How can you serve your spirit by setting clear boundaries, and respecting others?
