What an interesting time we are living through right now. Unless you are working in one of the essential businesses, you are probably at home with your family, trying to navigate an uncertain and fearful time. As Empaths, it can be too easy to tune in to the collective and become overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty, which only exacerbates whatever personal fears we have.
As many of you already know, from the shaman’s perspective times like these present an opportunity for change and growth. Change and growth is hardly ever pleasant, and I’m not discounting the suffering that people are going through right now. But what can we as Empaths do to help this collective change?
First and foremost, we must take care of ourselves. We must take care of our own level of fear. For those of us who are shaman we can be that island of peace for other fearful beings, remembering that fear is an ally but a terrible master. As Empaths we can offer compassion and our strength of holding emotional space for others. We are stronger than we think–but we must commit to our self care.
Last month I was interviewed by Bevin Niemann of the Shift Network. I welcome to those of you who joined my mailing list from that interview! I’m happy to have you here. I’m also happy to invite you to a free hour by Bevin that is just for Empaths. On Saturday, April 18, Bevin, writer, life purpose coach, and co-founder of 1 Million Empaths, will share hard-earned insights and proven practices for navigating life as an empath or HSP during these uncertain times.
You can register for Release Fear & Access Your Inner Strength & Resilience as an Empath or Highly Sensitive Person, here: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/rf/a21059
During this special free hour, you’ll discover (or remember):
- Why being sensitive is actually an evolutionary advantage
- How being self-focused is not selfish, it’s necessary for your health and vitality
- How being in defensive and self-protective mode constantly stresses your sensitive nervous system
- An easy exercise for releasing fear and anxiety — and holding your energetic space
- Ways to practice sensing and listening to what you’re feeling without trying to “fix” or rescue others
When you can strike a balance — trusting and owning your gifts as an empath or HSP, and allowing them to guide and ground you during tumultuous times (without giving too much of your emotional energies to others) — you’ll mine the many benefits that come with successfully navigating your challenges…
You can RSVP for free here: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/rf/a21059
I am also accepting a small number of clients at this time–not my regular schedule as I practice self-care, but don’t hesitate to reach out. The Elk Portal and the Eagle Portal have been rescheduled–more on that coming soon.
Stay well Everyone!
