Spiritual seekers tend to fall into one of two categories:
- they want to develop their intuition so that they can experience the metaphysical and enhance their lives
- they are already experiencing a great deal of metaphysical phenomena and they want to learn how to manage it
In my previous videos and articles, I’ve addressed how to open the third eye chakra and begin developing intuition. But I have not addressed those who are already experiencing heightened sensitivity to energies.
Highly psychic people, Indigos, empaths, healers, mediums, and otherwise intuitive people can sometimes find simple tasks like going out with friends, falling asleep at night, or going out into public spaces very difficult. That is because they often experience influxes of energy that can be extremely difficult to understand and manage if they don’t have the proper tools.
For example, a medium may have a difficult time going out with friends because they are bombarded with communication from the crossed over loved ones of their friends. Anyone who has mediumship abilities will know what I mean. For empaths, it can be difficult to go out into public spaces because they receive the sometimes overwhelming energies of complete strangers.
I get many emails from people who are unsure of how to manage their abilities. If you’re having a difficult time coping, here are some tips:
1. Be Honest With Yourself
There are times when severe trauma or mental imbalances can causes hallucinations that can closely mimic a spiritual experience. Hallucinations from a trauma and a genuine spiritual experience are completely different. It is important to know the difference and which you are experiencing. If in doubt, definitely seek the advice of a licensed medical practitioner and if necessary, get the assistance you need.
2. Ground Yourself
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the influxes of energy you’re receiving, you’ll definitely need to work at including grounding exercises in your daily life. When you ground the body, you become fully present mentally and emotionally (not caught up in emotions or thoughts).
Grounding puts you back in touch with the earth, which gives you a sense of stability and provides an outlet for the influx of energy you’re receiving. Think of a grounding wire. It’s there to ground the energy from a bolt of lightning into the earth. Grounding activities do the same thing for the body. Some examples of grounding exercises are: dancing, swimming, going for a hike, walking outside barefoot, getting physical exercise, and practicing mindful breathing.
3. Recognize and Release Your Fears
There is nothing to be afraid of. Your abilities are there to assist you in fulfilling your life purpose and enhancing your everyday. It’s important to remember that if you are not detached from what you’re seeing, your emotions will color your experience.
For example, if you are terrified to see ghosts because you’ve heard horror stories or watched scary movies, and then you have an encounter with a ghost, you will project that terror unto whatever it is you’re seeing. So you will perceive your experience as “terrifying” because you already have that terror within yourself.
Your emotions will always color your experiences, so work to release any emotional triggers you have regarding your gift or the information you’re experiencing.
4. Stay Balanced
You are a three part being: body, mind and spirit. If you go about your day only focusing on the spiritual, you will neglect your other spheres and lead an unfulfilling life. Remember that you are here for a reason: to experience life in the physical form. So although you’re having a spiritual experience, take the time to enjoy physical experiences. Get outside, take a course and learn something new, try new foods, do something you’ve always wanted to try.
These new experiences can not only ground you but also quickly balance you if you’re feeling overwhelmed by your abilities.
