Being an empath during this unprecedented time in recent history that is battling a worldwide pandemic called COVID-19/Cornavirus/Novel Coronavirus. This virus that we have not been exposed to ever is making some people very ill and killing a lot of them is very difficult for the human population in just about every part of our lives. Many people are having moderate to high levels of, hopelessness, grieving, worry, anxiety, depression, etc, and we as empaths can feel this no matter how strong of an empathic ability.
I am a strong emotional empath and have not been feeling well for weeks now to the point where my doctors had me do to different tests to make sure I did not have COVID-19. Thank the Goddess both the nasal swap and blood test came back negative. My fibromyalgia flare pain is off the charts, daily migraines, and reaching for sweets in place of dealing with what I was feeling, have a terrible cough, sore throat, and just want to sleep until this whole thing passes. I do know almost nothing in the USA will be the same as before COVID-19 and that scares me.
So I thought I had figured out why I was not feeling well at all and felt so weighed down when I stood up I had to have my knees slightly bent. My shoulders felt as if there was a huge weight on each of them. I could feel negativity literally bouncing around inside of me. Yesterday was the feeling that broke this camel’s back. It was a feeling of this is the simplest thing to pay a bill online but I couldn’t get it done.
Somehow I allowed energies in again yesterday, probably because my bubble wasn’t strong enough to start with, and last night the coughing kept me up most of the night. During this period of coughing and no sleep I came up with a solution with what to do with all the negative feelings of others no matter what they are based on. First and always smudge or however you cleanse negativity out of your sacred space your your are working this request in a clean environment. I proceeded to make the bubble I have around me very thick and sticky so the negative feelings stick to the bubble than I can gather them up and then banish negativity into the Sun, I use the Ancient Egypt God name RA, to have them burned up so they do not transfer to another person especially those who are sick, worrying about a loved one or grieving those who died.
To help protect yourself from everyone else’s feelings that are good and/or bad call upon the Goddess and/or God you feel most comfortable working with to wrap you in a cotton bunting full of their love and comfort. Next ask them to surround you in a bubble that will hold the negative feelings but strong enough that they do not get through to you. Then as often as you feel you need to banish those feels into the Sun do so. This will put you in an emotional void of all but your true feeling making it easier to deal with them. I used this to put my 2 familiars in separate from me and each other bubbles. I left a very minute way for my husband’s love which I found out yesterday was a mistake as we had a small tift and all that negative energy started bouncing around my bubble working itself inward which brought back all the bad side effects that I had before I put my bubble up. So as hard as it may be for you to cut all emotional ties with everyone in your life until you feel you have healed and are ready to go back to deal with everyone’s feelings from anywhere in the world Keep your emotional vacuum bubble in place. Now that negativity cannot attach to or be around you do a very thorough smudging of your entire home and either put up for the first time or to reinforce the blessings you already have on you home, After this collect up all the negativity and banish it into the Sun to be incinerated,
I hope this story and ideas for dealing with not wanting to feel other’s emotion helps at least one empath to reclaim their own feelings, to let your empathic ability to hibernate so you come back feeling better and stronger. If any empath wants to “speak” with me about what I have written here please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I am in a valuable position myself because of being a strong emotional empath and can help the dead cross from this plain into the next and hear spirits talking to me I need to be a little selfish and not reading a venting email. You can still email you venting to me but please put “This is a Venting” in your emails Subject Line and then I will put it aside until I can read and reply to them. No matter how long you may have studied magic or what position we hold in our coven we are still humans with human frailties.
