Empaths are emotional sponges who absorb other peoples’ emotions into their own bodies. They have an ability to completely submerge into someone else’s mind, perspective and emotions. At the same time, that means that they also take on their stress, and negativity and end up feeling exhausted.
Empaths have little to no boundaries between themselves and others. As a result, they often get overwhelmed by this excessive stimulation and sensory overload. Being aware of empathetic abilities is not enough. Empaths need to also shield themselves with protection methods to keep their balance.
Visualize A Shield
This method is for empaths and sensitive people who need a quick way to block out toxic energy. Whenever a feeling of discomfort, guilt, in a frustrating situation, or around an emotional vampire, simply start to visualize a shield. Picture a white or other comforting color shining through from that shield and completely taking over your body.
Picture it as expands from the shield unto you, as the moment it touches you, it protects you from any toxic or intrusive energy. Behind this shield you are safe, you are centered and you are loving,
