Are You A Human Sponge For Other People’s Emotions?
Do you feel as though you are a human sponge for other people’s emotions? Do you tend to absorb the energies of co-workers, family, and friends to the point it can leave you drained for days?
I know that all you really want is to help others feel better and that desire comes from a beautiful giving heart. While this is a loving gesture, when you continually take on the emotions and feelings of others it can leave you feeling exhausted with no energy of your own. This leaves you feeling like an emotional human sponge and is one of the signs of being an Empath. You can check out if you exhibit some of the signs of an empath here.
When you get to the point of exhaustion, what you are experiencing is something called overactive empathy.
What Is Empathy?
Empathy is the ability to understand, experience, and share the feelings of another soul. This is a beautiful state of opening up our hearts and connecting deeply with another. It comes from a place of true giving and understanding.
Overactive Empathy – The Human Sponge Effect
There is another side to empathy that many of you are all too familiar with and that is when your gift of empathy gets turned on 24-7 and begins to overtake far too many areas of your life. Your beautiful gift of empathy goes into overdrive and pretty soon you can think that empathy is more of a curse rather than a gift. Somewhere along the line there has been a lynch pin or a turning point and what once was a beautiful soul level gift has turned into a source of pain and isolation for you.
When your empathy is in overdrive, you can easily find yourself feeling like a victim of other people’s energy. This can affect you whether you consider yourself a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), an Empath, or if are simply compassionate and sympathetic.
Overactive empathy is taking on someone else’s physical or emotional pain to the point that you are energetically drained.
When your empathy radio is constantly turned up to full volume, you end up suffering emotionally and in some cases it can also manifest into physical symptoms such as headaches, migraines, and more.
Can your body, even your blood, vibrate with love?
Love is the secret to healing and it has a higher vibration. As you know, human beings are a spiritual entity that is having a physical experience. That means, you have an inner energy (spiritual) and your body (physical) is a reflection of your inner energy.
When we are having a disconnect with our inner energy or if our inner energy is disturbed, the physical part of it, the body, starts reflecting what’s underneath it. That’s where illnesses start. So by connecting with and raising your inner energy to the level of love, you can heal yourself effortlessly. You just need to know how to connect with your energy and turn it around and that’s what Christie Marie Sheldon is teaching in her Energetic Breakthrough Kit.
