Your Cart is Empty

Empathy comes naturally to us. It’s a core human value. So why does empathy sometimes leave you emotionally overwhelmed, exhausted, heightened in sensitivity and disconnected from your own inner peace?

The topic of how to avoid "empathy burnout" arises frequently in my group and one-to-one psychic spiritual healing and mentor sessions.

I'm certain you know empathy is a powerful and essential human virtue when in balance. 

  • Empathy enables you to understand and share the feelings of another person.
  • Put yourself in their shoes and offer support or understanding.
  • Empathy is crucial for building and maintaining healthy relationships, resolving conflicts, and fostering a sense of connection and community.

How much do you know about the spiritual energetics of empathy?

Empathy is built on sensitivity. It is the ability for your body, through energy and vibration to sense people, animals, plants, and the entire world around you. 

There is a level of very highly refined energetic sensitivity in your body that is designed for you to attune to the soul in your own body's internal landscape of self.

  • Your soul is your authentic self with its defining characteristics about your true nature. 
  • Your soul helps you know what aligns and resonates as authentically true, right and real for you.
  • I see people, and myself at times, take this highly refined sensitivity capacity meant for soul connection, and send it out into the world around them as empathy.

This sensitivity is not designed to be sent as cords of feeling out into the external world.

There are repercussions to using your more subtle refined sensitivity capacities in this way.
  • It can become burdensome when it leads to an overwhelming influx of external energies.
  • Or when the quest for empathy morphs into an unceasing absorption of external emotions and experiences disrupting the delicate balance of equilibrium within.

Here are some key points to consider in maintaining this balance between sensitivity and empathy.

  1. Self-Exploration and Awareness: To truly understand and attune to your own soul, it is essential to engage in self-exploration. Take time for self-reflection, meditation, and mindfulness to gain insight into your inner self. Recognize the defining characteristics of your true nature.
  2. Setting Boundaries: Establishing emotional boundaries is crucial. By allowing empathy to flow outward without limits, you risk becoming a sponge for the energies and emotions of others. Learning to set healthy boundaries can protect your inner harmony.
  3. Healing from Trauma: Trauma can often drive us to seek external safety through empathy. Healing from past wounds is vital in rebalancing your empathic sensitivity. Trauma is a common theme in the work I do as a psychic spiritual healer and in my group-membership The Spiritual Healing Sanctuary.
  4. Grounding Techniques: Incorporate grounding practices into your daily routine. These can include activities like spending time in nature, practising yoga, or simply taking deep breaths to anchor yourself in the present moment.
  5. Energetic Protection: Visualise and create an energetic shield around yourself. Watch my video on clearing and protection below andclick here to go to my website and access the PDF.
  6. Selective Empathy: Choose when and how to extend your empathy. Not all situations require the same level of empathic involvement. Selective empathy can help you preserve your inner sensitivity.

Remember, empathy is a gift that should enhance your spiritual journey, not encumber it.

By balancing your empathic connections to the world around you with your connection to your own soul, you can experience greater self-awareness, emotional balance, and spiritual growth.
