Do other people’s energies affect you?
You might be wondering how you can possibly stay positive around a negative person, or in a chaotic world.
If you are anything like me, you’re sensitive to other people’s energy. You can walk into a room and feel what’s been go on there. Or when you meet someone, you immediately know what they’re about.
This is a real gift, though it does have its challenges. For me, being sensitive to other people’s energy has been a lifelong lesson in boundaries and self-care. It always amazed me when people could be around anyone in any environment and remain undaunted.
I used to take things very personally. In fact, I took on other people’s energy as if it was my own!
Letting things, “roll off my back”, as others would encourage me to do, just wasn’t possible.
This means that I feel people’s emotions (and sometimes physical pain) as if they were my own. My guess is that you have some degree of this too. If you’ve ever struggled with any of the following, then you are most likely an empath too:
If you weren’t hardwired to be sensitive to other people’s energy, you wouldn’t experience these things. Trying to brush things off or move on as if you don’t care is not how you roll!
Being an empath is a remarkable gift. You have emotional intelligence.
When channeled correctly, you have an intuitive awareness that guides you toward amazing opportunities. You have the ability to heal yourself and others.
If you’re unskilled about managing the energy you’re receiving, it can wreak havoc on your life.
In order to stay positive around other people, you must do the following:
Your aura is interacting with other people’s energy. An empath’s aura is more porous than most people’s. Therefore you pick up energy like a sponge. If you keep absorbing energy without cleansing it from your aura, it will weigh you down and deplete you.
Make a conscious choice to bring light to your aura every day to wash away what doesn’t belong to you, and make your aura shiny and bright.
A tree that is rooted firmly in the Earth is not blown away by storms. Similarly, a person who is rooted in their body can remain healthy and happy without getting emotionally uprooted by other people’s dramas. The more firmly your energy is grounded, the more easily you can remain healthy and secure.
Empaths tend to be people pleasers. In order to keep relationship harmony, empaths have a tendency to over-give and make choices based on other people’s happiness rather than their own. In time, it becomes more challenging to know what you want, because you’re making choices for other people instead.
A healthy solution is to focus on what you want before you think about how it affects everyone else. This isn’t selfish (although if you’re not used to it you might feel like it is).
As an empath, you can ultimately have more clarity about what’s right for the good of all by first knowing what’s right for you.
Once you have clarity about what’s you truly want and what’s best for you, you can communicate that clearly and directly with others.
You might feel as if you’ll rock the boat by doing this. Ultimately, when people are honest and direct, it’s more harmonious for everyone involved. People will appreciate the clarity and you’ll feel better knowing you’re being true to yourself.
Love is the strongest energy in the Universe.
If other people around you are fearful or negative, it can wear you down. However, if you are elevating YOUR energy to the frequency of love, it can lift up others around you instead.

As empaths we absorb thoughts, feelings, and emotions of others. We are highly sensitive to energies, people, places, and nature.
For those of us who are empaths and often find ourselves being caught up in people’s orbits who constantly lean to us when their life is in turmoil, just know there is help for us to shield ourselves from being drained by low energies, we have only to learn how to use these tools.
The difference between being empathetic and being an empath is empathetic people feel for someone’s unhappy situation whereas an empath actually takes in the vibes of someone, almost like a sponge absorbing feelings, regardless of the emotion they are giving off whether happy, sad, angry etc.
When we’re around negative people giving off their vibes and toxic energy there are a few things we can do to repel those energies from penetrating into our own emotions.
“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
We are susceptible to the influences of your vibrations. In other words, when the vibration of humanity, or any other race in dimensions that are lower than ours dips, we feel it. We are empaths just as many of you are. Being empathic is part of being awakened, because in order for you to truly be awake, you have to care about other people.
And it’s not a question of trying to care. Once you truly awaken, you just do. Now, in your mind, you could say to yourself, ‘We are all one, and we are all connected, therefore, I should care about the other humans.’ But what really makes you feel love in your heart is the same aspect of you that tunes you in to the vibrations of others. It is the Source of all things we are talking about here.
Source Energy is an empath, like us, and like those of you who are awakened. We are all affected by the vibrations of each other, and we want you to recognize that this empathic nature is what leads to compassion, and compassion is what will unite all beings in the galaxy. So even though it is difficult for many of you to be in a crowded room, or at a party, and even though it is challenging for you to sit with someone who is in a tremendous amount of pain, you are doing so much for every other human just by being there.
Just by deciding that you would awaken to the truth of who you are in this lifetime, you have been a big part of the shift in consciousness and the unification of all star systems in the galaxy. Therefore, even when you are curled up in a ball and feel barely able to function because of all that you are feeling, you are being of service. And the beautiful thing about being able to feel as much as you do, and being so empathic, is that you will also feel the shifting energies and their effect on every other human who will make that journey to the fifth dimension with you.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Ever wonder why so many old souls tend to be empaths? Well, continue reading to learn about the connection between empaths and old souls. Empaths are people like you and me. The reason why this particular group of people has been categorized is because of their unusually impressive ability to sense external thoughts […]
by Dylan Harper,
Our sensitivity can empower us in ways we can’t quite understand. Find out what kind of an empath you are and how you can become a better person through simple awareness.
In today’s society, sensitivity is viewed as a weakness, which is kind of ironic because our sensitivity can be quite empowering.
So, how can we become empowered by a trait that makes us soft and delicate, in a world dominated by loud and overpowering people? Yes, it is true that many empaths may seem weak and even get overpowered, but there is another aspect to this sensitivity.
Deep down, way beyond the veil of our superficial personas, all empaths have something distinctly quiet and quite powerful. This power doesn’t dominate or overpower people but rather empowers one in an extremely useful way.
This gift allows empaths to benefit in the long term by gathering psychological, emotional, and physical information from their surroundings. This information is usually inaccessible to the unreceptive mind.
Although it is indeed correct that empaths cannot bully people or use brute force, they can however, protect, guide, heal, and deeply understand the people around them.
In this way, they can gather incredible amounts of information and how they use this knowledge is at their discretion. Knowledge is, after all, the greatest power.
If you suspect that you are more sensitive than the people around you, then continue reading to find out if you too are an empath in an insensitive world.
If you really are an empath, you will recognize some of these experiences that are faced by most empaths:
Yes, being an empath can have many benefits, but at the same time, it can also weigh you down and cause anxiety. This is one of the reasons why it is important to understand our individual experiences in the hope to better understand ourselves.
The following is a list of different types of empaths and a small description to help you understand what kind of an empath you may be.
Many empaths seem to be receptive to the physical pains and illnesses of other people. The pain can manifest in the empath’s own body – an ability which has proven to be extremely useful in healing.
Almost all empaths are extremely receptive of external emotional states. This can result in physically and emotionally feeling other people’s emotions before they are expressed.
Claircognizant empaths have the ability to know if something needs to be done or if a statement of a person’s intentions is true or misleading, without any rational reasoning. Such empaths have the ability to know if they should do something or not.
These empaths have the ability to read signals and energy transmitted from the soil or earth. Meaning, they can feel if a natural disaster is impending.
Fanna empaths can feel, hear, and interact with animals.
Medium empaths, as the name suggests, can either feel, see or hear spirits.
Slightly similar to Fanna Empaths, as they can communicate with plants by being able to feel or receive their signals.
These empaths develop the ability to receive energy, impressions, and information from inanimate objects such as jewelry, photographs, etc.
Telepathic empaths can accurately read another peron’s unexpressed thoughts.
Such empaths can feel a situation or event before its occurrence. These usually manifests in the form of dreams of emotional or physical sensations.
In this insensitive and coarse world, empaths can often find it difficult to maintain their inner harmony. But with self-awareness, everyone, including empaths, can learn to appreciate their unique gifts and abilities.
Hopefully, this article will help you find some answers to your questions. We would love it if you would share your experiences with us all.

Empathy is something we’re all born with. Each and every one of us. Our brains are wired to experience empathy. But many decide to beat the empathy out of themselves. This leaves them, in a way, at a disadvantage. By not learning to experience the emotions of others, they will have a greater difficulty in reading other people than you do.
When you’re an empath, it’s easy to feel so so low when you’re around negative people, but with deep lows come soaring highs. When you feel good, you feel really good. Good enough for the good to last a lifetime.
Being an empath gives you the capacity to smell bullshit a mile away. People can’t just lie to your face without you knowing about it. You can even detect when someone is telling a white lie or saying they’re okay when they’re not. It’s a handy capability to have.
If you want to make it through this life following creative pursuits and making a buck out of it, being an empath is a gift to you. You’re able to put your thoughts and feelings on paper and canvas alike. This is something every artist needs.
OK this could possibly be the game changer for many empaths on their ascension process. Whether through loyalty or previously agreed contract there is a trait within empaths to put themselves last. Not only is this a disservice to yourselves but also to the ascension process in general. This doesn’t mean that you neglect or abandon any allegiance! You just need to factor in your needs as a balance to the needs and desires of others. In truth if you are a true empath you are programmed to put the desires and needs of others first even if you know your own life force will diminish. Now! This is where your alignment to all that is good and true steps into your full power. By honouring and respecting your needs and realising it does not take anything from others (whether friends, family or the world in general). The world needs to be in balance in order to move forward and as an empath you can be instrumental more than you ever realised
It is the nature of empaths and those that fill their lives that the empath must always feel responsible or guilty! Now without spite, judgement or vindictiveness it is of vital importance that you as an empath fulfill all allegiances, loyalties and obligations and still ensure you are equally honored. Ensure you allow yourself space and time if and when you need it (be careful not to over compensate and neglect responsibilities).
In summary this means empaths need to honour themselves without becoming selfish

Hello my Empathic and Sensitive friends. I was guided to share some of my recent observations on the current energies and how we can most effectively work with them.
I am already seeing the “instant manifestation” aspect of the “8” Universal Year energies and how we need to stay on our toes.
1) Be mindful of the Collective – If you feel you are being unduly affected by the “astral superhighway” I recommend a read of my blog post on the subject and perhaps the companion meditation
The Keepers on Detachment from the Collective
2) Be aware of “yours, mine and ours” energetically. – On a certain level we can say it’s all us, but for life in 3D manifestations may appear differently. I have a technique that I’ve developed with my Guidance Team and I call it the “Red Light/Green Light.”
How this works is if I can feeling uncomfortable or otherwise affected by energy I ask where it is coming from. If it is externally generated I will see a green light. If it is internally generated, the red.
This gives me further clues on how to work with it. You can experiment with your own version of this.
3) I’ve noticed another interesting aspect of “matching pictures/energies” in the current energies. As Empaths, we often *replicate* energies that are directed our way, sometimes unconsciously or automatically.
For example, if you are feeling a persistent negative emotion that is normally not what you experience in your everyday life, you may want to check up on this.
4) It’s a good reminder that LOVE always wins, ultimately. If energies are coming your way that are less-than-loving, it’s important to not vibrate along with them. Bless and release all in LOVE. This is our most powerful protection and safeguard of all.
5) GROUNDING and CENTERING are not luxuries, but essential practices especially for Empathic and sensitive people. These practices can be done in just a few minutes out of your day, but they will make all the difference.
6) Use the powerful, shape-shifting energies of this year to drop energies and beliefs that are no longer in alignment with you or your purposes.
7) Be aware that this is the last pass of the Uranus/Pluto square energies this month. We’ve been working with these energies since 2010, so they aren’t anything new to us.
They are always an opportunity for folks to keep it cool or “lose their heads.” Some people are rising, some are falling and it all works out in the wash. Keeping anchored in the heart and staying out of excessive analysis is recommended.
As always, AWARENESS of our emotions and energies is key. Take good care beloved Empath friends!
