Yesterday, as I opened up Facebook early in the morning, I noticed this on my feed:
Public service announcement to my ‘sensitive’ and empath friends: There is a lot of erratic and chaotic as well as heavy and dense energy (as I feel it) that is out and about right now…you might be feeling edgy, irritable, anxious, depressed, sad, off balance, dizzy, light headed, exhausted – or experiencing a combination. Especially notice if they come on suddenly as I notice this is typically what happens when I’m picking up or sensing from others…
There was more to the post, encouraging people who are sensitive to energy to discern between what is truly theirs and what is not and to stay centered in the process.
As a highly sensitive and empathic person, what occurred to me was that I wasn’t feeling edgy, irritable, anxious, depressed, sad, off balance, dizzy, light headed, exhausted – or any combination of that – until I read the post. That sucks.
Why do we lightworkers often focus on the negative when there is so much positive out there to share? If we understand that like attracts like and what we put out there is what comes back to us and so on and so forth, why would we ever share a message like this?
In the simple act of sharing…a seed has been planted…a seed of negativity. Nothing positive can come from this.
A message of learning to identify what is your energy and what is not is a timeless message that can be shared without negative thoughts attached.
A message of identifying the best ways to protect yourself and stay grounded and centered is also a timeless message that can be shared without negative thoughts attached.
I know the person’s intention wasn’t to spread negativity, I am sure it was filled with a desire to be supportive and loving to their community. And we must be mindful about what we are sharing in the big (and small) picture.
And what would happen if that same post had read something like this:
Public service announcement to my ‘sensitive’ and empath friends: There is a lot of amazing and powerful as well as joyful and happy energy (as I feel it) that is out and about right now…you might be feeling incredibly positive, like you can manifest anything, completely in the flow, like everything is perfect, happy, excited, fully loved and supported AND full of energy – or experiencing a combination. It doesn’t matter when or how it shows up, just suck it all in and relish every moment, remembering that like attracts like so don’t be surprised when your life just keeps getting better and better…
If we fill our lives with positive energy, there will be no room for negative energy, ours or someone else’s. We will find ourselves naturally protected from negative energy simply because there is no room for anything else. We are meant to be positive loving beings and must fill ourselves with the same to be in this state.
I encourage you to go forth and spread messages of love and peace. Of things that ignite your soul…that bring you joy. Focus on these things and spread your light out into the world. In doing so, we can make this world a better place for everyone, not just empaths and other sensitive people.
What are your thoughts on these kinds of messages?
