Lightworkers are often sensitive and empathic. It’s one of our superpowers because it helps us to understand when and how our help is needed. We can sense when someone or something needs our help, and very often, we would also understand how we can help in the best way possible. Never underestimate this power!
Our sensitivity and empathy are something that has been a blessing in disguise for most of our lives. You might have been teased or even bullied in school, called crybabies, or told: “Not to be such a baby!” You might even have come to the point where it was easier to hide away with a book you could escape into because the world around you became so overwhelming. Or you might do like me, escaping into alternative worlds through dancing, theatre and music. For boys, it could be escaping into computer games.
It’s not easy to be sensitive and an empath in this world because the energies in this realm are so intense and, quite frankly, of extremely low frequency. The energies on Earth are consumed by fear, pain, suffering, anxiety, and stress. This is, of course, something EVERY sensitive and empathic person will pick up on.
One thing I see very often in sensitive and empathic people, Lightworkers or not, is how they sometimes can ruin their self-esteem. It’s usually due to being teased or bullied in the past and because they feel so overwhelmed by everything that’s going on in the world. In this guide, I will share 3 things that most people get wrong about being sensitive and an empath.
Empath Mistake #1 – You Think that Something is Wrong With You.
It hurts me when someone thinks that there is something wrong with them, no matter what the reason is.
Let me put records straight once and for all; unless you’re batshit crazy, mentally unstable, delusional, narcissistic, manipulative, psychopathic, sociopathic, or murderer, etc. – nothing is wrong with you!
Empath Mistake #2 – You Only Focus on the Limitations.
Another thing I often hear sensitive and empathic people say is how much of a burden it is for them to be sensitive and empathic. It can very quickly turn into excuses for not doing something you don’t really want to do, or even worse – turn into anxiety.
Limitations are not the purpose of sensitivity or empathy. It’s not meant to prevent you from living the life you want to live. It’s meant as a tool and a gift you can use to have more awareness of what’s going on around you.
Empath Mistake #3 – You Forgetting to Shield Yourself.
I have this thing with always locating where the restroom is when I am in a new place. Why? When I was in school, I developed a “survival” technique to escape to the toilet if I needed a break from everything. Usually, I don’t have to pee… I just need 5 minutes alone in peace and quiet to centre myself if I’m getting too overwhelmed. We all know that if there is one place where we can be left alone, then it’s in the restroom. Just don’t be out there too long, so people don’t ask questions 😉
There are countless ways to shield yourself:
