Psychic Medium Gives 5 Powerful Coping Tips For Empaths

What Is the Psychic Gift of Being Empathic?

Being an empath is all about feeling the emotions of others. This psychic gift presents in many different ways. Do you feel that you just know things without being told? Or, do you feel overwhelmed in busy and loud places? Is it hard to be in an airport, mall or busy store? Do you take on the emotions or feeling of others as if they were your own? Or, do you feel the emotions of those near you? Listen in today as Michelle discusses psychic development, what an empath is and how to navigate your day to day life as a sensitive/empath.

Develop Your Psychic Ability and Discover If You’re an Empath

  • Do you actually feel the illnesses, aching, pains or physical symptoms of others when you are near them?
  • Do you find yourself rooting for the losing team or the underdog in a situation?
  • Are you inspired to support those who you see as being intimidated, bullied or who are suffering?
  • Empaths are often highly creative and extremely rich imaginations. Is this you? Are you a fantastic day dreamer?

Many empaths are natural healers. Do you have an affinity toward healing others? Or, are you drawn to holistic, metaphysical or naturopathic solutions and remedies? An empath will desire quiet time, peace and solitude in their daily lives wherein they can just be and breathe and reflect and be in the moment. Often this is sought out through a deep connection and love of animals and children.

Do you find that family and friends come to you to divulge their life issues and problems? Empaths are of problem solvers seeking out answers. Unresolved or unexplained question are frustrating as the empath searches for resolve and completion.

Most psychic empaths are free spirited souls, thriving on adventure and new experience. They are sponge-like when it comes to freedom, travel and learning. Is this you? Rules and regimen are stifling to the empath. Their freedom is essential and so control of any kind is met with great resistance. How do strict guidelines, procedures and guidelines work for you? If you resonate with any of these traits, it’s very likely you are an empath.

Coping Tips for Psychics and Empaths 

Develop Your Psychic Third Eye Chakra

Purple and dark blue colored fruits assist you expanding and opening your third eye. Eat blackberries, blueberries or red grapes. Also, consider flavoring your foods with hemp seeds and lavender. Try burning Vanilla or Lavender incense to support this as well.

Psychic Development & Protection Roses

A Protection Tool: Creating a Protection Rose

In your psychic development, you must learn that your pure, positive essence is the only energy allowed in your space.  A Protection Rose is an energy tool that assists you during your daily life, meditation or any kind of spiritual work to keep healthy energy boundaries in place. A Protection Rose acts like a filter or receptacle that absorbs energies near or around you that are not your own and don’t belong in your space.

Be in the Center of Your Head in Your Psychic Development

Our lives are full of poignant experiences. If you are an energy worker, intuitive or healer of any kind you are likely coming across equally highly charged experiences – even if you are not consciously aware of it. It is natural to slip into the emotions and chaos of events around use and/or into the energy of the client. This is especially true if you are an empath. More often than not, at these times, your attention is focused outside of you, and you are completely entrenched with whatever situation is pressing at the moment. When you learn how to consciously be in the center of your head you begin to call your life force back to you, finding peach of mind, clarity and balance.

There is a spiritual space in the center of our heads from which we are better able to filter out much of the noise of the world, and more easily focus on consciously creating our experience. Staying in the center of your head increases your awareness of your body, mind and spirit.

Steps to Being in the Center of Your Head

  1. You easily get into the center of your head by taking your awareness to this area of your body and acknowledging it.
  2. Imagine a miniature version of yourself right in the center of your head – at the apex of to two crossed lines traveling through the center of your head.
  3. The center of your head is your own space so decorate, design and flavor it any way you choose. Take some time to create this sacred space exactly as you choose.
  4. The center of your head is for you only. If any other people, animals, or issues are there ask them to leave through your Grounding Cord by opening the trap door located directly under the crossed lines.

Psychics and Empaths Must Strengthen Root Chakra

The root chakra helps psychics, intuitives and empaths to stay grounded and in the present. When the root chakra is in balance we are in harmony and fully grounded in all matters of life around us. To support maintaining this equanimity, smudge your home, ground and run energy daily, and bathe in sage. Also, eat root vegetables such as garlic, onions, and carrots to enhance grounding. Most importantly, exercise! Try, dancing, cycling, or yoga.

Tune into Your Throat Chakra to Access Psychic Awareness

This is the center of communication. Speak your truth, set boundaries and don’t be afraid to say, “No.” You can say no with love, care and grace. Try singing, chanting and sharing your feelings. Feed this chakra with water and tree-growing fruits like apricots and peaches.

What’s Next In Your Psychic Development?

As a psychic empath it is paramount to learn to manage the input of emotions and the physical reactions that accompany them. The empath must put these emotional connections into a space where they can acknowledge them and their physical manifestations as just information to be communicated and nothing more. This takes practice, but people so endowed are mandated to submit to their gifts and deliver the messages they receive.

  • Lisa says:

    Everything you say about being an empath fits me to a t. I worked for veterinarian and saved many animals that others would have let die, I was a caregiver and now I use essential oils to help people and just became a massage therapist. My problem now is I’m touching alot of people and I tend to feel sick to my stomach after some massages and I’m completely drained emotional and physically at the end of the day. I love what I do but have nothing left for me. How do I stop this and still be good at what I do?

    • Hi Lisa, It’s good to hear from you and thank you for your question! Please have a listen to the Intuitive Hour: Awaken Your Inner Voice, at iTunes. There are a number of tools in various episode there to support you in finding harmony and balance energetically and emotionally as you work with others. Grounding, Running Energy, Prayer of Protection, and Protection Roses are few I would recommend. The fist step begins though with setting an intention that only your pure, positive, highest essence is allowed in your space. Your subconscious and any other energy you work with must listen to this intention you set. Let me know if I can help in any other way. Warmly, Medium Michelle

    I have been able to pick up on people’s emotions all my life…..I can pick up on animals emotions and feel guilty if I step on a bug.. I have always attracted men in my life who take advantage of me…Strangers in a ladies bathroom will tell me all their secrets. I hate crowded places because of all the emotions going on….I have become ill, constant vertigo that doesn’t go away and am living at home….My mother has dementia and screams all the time…..My niece is manic and screams all the time…..I am having a hard time dealing with all this emotion…I think I may be an empath and have thought this is why I attract all this. How can I learn to deal with all the noise..

  • Réjean says:

    I have been inclined towards holistic, psychics, etc. Most of my life. Not thinking much of it then I have over the years got to know myself and in the last few years I have really been discovering my own divinity within myself. So much so that I have followed a course to provide the Rebirth treatment which has been an eye opener for me. Since then a lot of things presented itself to develop this further naturally. Upon speaking with a psychic last year. She mentioned that I have discovered my gift, which is empath healer.
    It is an exciting journey and I am glad that I came across your path which I know it is not a coincidence. I am confident that I will learn a lot from your teaching.
    From the bottom of my heart ????
    Thank you ???????? god bless you!

    Ever since I was a teen Id have dreams of places ive never been to and later on I would end up at that place. Also I would say something, or think of a song or a commercial then seconds after that it would come on, this Ive also experience when I was a teen till now, its even more like everyday. After my daughter was born I became an empath, I can even feel pain when its on TV, I get this chill and cringe my teeth when ever I see someone hurt. I usually know things that happen before they do. Ive also lived in many houses thats haunted through my teen years till now. Like now the house I live in I think my cat that died a year ago has came back as i seen and feel many signs and sometimes my other two cats act strangely. And now that everything that is going on now days and Ive lost my job and I have to homeschool my grandkids and with things not being normal, I get itchy all over especially my head I just want to scratch at it all the time, I keep myself clean I know I dont have lice, so Im thinking its just my nerves, why am I so much sensitive now. It seems it just gets stronger and stronger as the days go on.

  • Steve says:

    Hello Michelle
    So I feel like I recently discovered being a empath… well not actually. I feel like I have had this all my life but pushed it out or ignored it. Since I am thinking about it I honestly feel like my empathy is normal it’s just a part of me.
    There are certain people that I feel are open and have positive energy or a easy read others not so much. And some particularly family members I can’t even block. I can be overwhelmed by the feelings and I have a hard time being honest because I don’t want to hurt there feelings ( honesty can do that) I don’t like to feel closed so things can be very confusing. And sometimes I think I may be going crazy.
    I would go as far to say I can feel anxiety and sadness in people much easier than positive things or at least I notice it much clearer and right now I feel surrounded by it.
    Is there any way to communicate with someone to ease there pain without talking to them? I have tried to just think positive thoughts for them and it doesn’t seem to work.
    I feel like I can feel others pain from far away especially family. And when they are on the wrong path I get frustrated and want to explain but I know they don’t want to hear it.
    It’s hard to explain
    Thanks again

    • Hi Steve, At my podcase, The Intuitive Hour, you’ll find episodes on the fundamental tools of psychic development: Grounding, Running Energy, Neutrality, Protection Rose and Protection Prayer. All of these are essential for an empath, and especially for an empath. As you employ these tools, you’ll begin to regain a feeling of control and no longer inundated with the emotions of others. Warmly, Michelle
