As women, we are often taught that we take care of everyone else first, and then if there is time and money left over, we take care of ourselves. What most of us don’t realize is that by doing that we are allowing ourselves to become de-energized – we are exhausted, possibly in pain, and lose the enthusiasm we once had.
When we are de-energized we actually become less able to take care of everything and everyone else.
A whopping 52% of those who took our HSP quiz reported that they have hard to explain or mysterious symptoms. If you have mysterious symptoms, they may be related to exposure to energies that are very abrasive to you. Have you ever had mysterious symptoms, physical or emotional issues that you just couldn’t seem to explain….and sadly, your health professional couldn’t either?
This is a surprisingly common experience among people who took our HSP/Empath Quiz.
Are there people you simply avoid? Do you attempt to get your shopping down quickly just to get away from the store? Both these situations can be considered abrasive, yet they can be from TWO DIFFERENT CAUSES! Other people’s energy can be so vibrationally different from yours that it’s really uncomfortable for you to be around that person. The EMF radiation from WiFi, cell phones, computers, tablets, etc. is also an abrasive and draining energy for many HSP’s.
Why are HSPs and Empaths Retreating into their Houses?
Agoraphobia and hermitism (my term) are very common among people who are sensitive to energy – this includes both other people’s stress and negativity and electrical energy of all kinds (EMF, RF, EMR). They are simply too impacted to “be in the world” and so they retreat.
Not all avoid going out completely, but many carefully plan how much they can handle in public settings or even with small groups of people. They need quiet, alone time to refresh and regroup. Those who are super sensitive and possibly also sensitive to electromagnetic radiation are actually afraid to go out. Continue reading →
The Roller Coaster – from happy to depressed, anxious or out-of-sorts in seconds flat!
If you’re an empath or an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) your emotions can often feel like a rollercoaster. They can also be extremely confusing because sometimes they aren’t even yours.
That sudden mood swing may be an emotion that you’ve “picked up” from someone else; co-workers, neighbors, friends, your kids, your significant other, even the person standing behind you in the grocery store. Continue reading →
Giving without refueling – how will you keep that up over the long-term?
Self-Care is critical, especially if you’re an HSP or empath in the corporate world.
Before becoming a health coach I worked for five years in a corporate job. As an HSP this was a big challenge for me. I found almost everything about the job and the environment completely draining, but my biggest problem was that I couldn’t understand why other people around me seemed to be fine. After the first few exhausting years, I began learning about what it means to be an HSP.
You can feel more love and connection when you’re grounded
Do you have a difficult time feeling at home or living in the world? Are there days when you feel that you don’t belong here?
You’re not alone. HSPs, empaths, and others who are sensitive in one way or another often find it extremely difficult to be here on Earth – sometimes it seems excruciating. The energy is often overwhelming, chaotic and disharmonious that many are disconnected from their bodies and not at all grounded. Strangely being ungrounded and disconnected makes it even more difficult to be here. Continue reading →
Our very own Virginia Bonta Brown and AnnaMariah are interviewed and share tips.
Virginia talks about the effects of EMF radiation and what steps you can take to protect yourself. As a pediatric occupational therapist, Virginia saw firsthand some of the effects energy had on children and has made it her mission to help protect both children and adults, so they can be empowered to be at their best. Did you know exposure holding a cell phone to your head for only 5-minutes will decrease a child’s attention span for up to 3 hours?
As our technology increases with the roll-out of even more smart meters and 5G networks, taking care of yourself is increasingly important.
AnnaMariah is an Empath. She designed our HSP Quiz to help Highly Sensitive People and empaths learn their areas of sensitivity and how they can be more at home in a chaotic world. She shares her story and talks about what it means to be an HSP or empath and how you can navigate more easily through our world.
Listen and find out what you can do and why protection is so necessary.
Virginia speaks with KB and Ray of on the Wake Up Radio Show for the first 40 minutes or so, then AnnaMariah is on until the end.
Do you ever feel like you’re not truly connecting with your unique abilities and gifts? Does daily life just seem to overwhelm that energy? You’re not alone, this is a common problem for many who are energy sensitive.
How do you connect more with your abilities and energies?
Do you feel like you’re drowning in a sea of other people’s emotions? If so you may be a highly sensitive person or empath.
So how do you know, if you’re sensitive?
Have people told you that you’re just too sensitive. Or suggested that you just need a thicker skin?
Do you ever walk into a room where someone is really upset, mad, sad, anxious….and within minutes your good mood is a thing of the past. You become an almost perfect reflection of what the other person is feeling.
Do you have days, weeks even, where you just can’t seem to find your emotional center? You’re up, down
Do you thrive on all the activities of the holidays? Do all those lists, shopping, plans, cooking and so on and on leave, you feeling energized or exhausted? If you answered yes, you can quit reading now.
However, if like many of us, you find the Holidays a mixed-bag and often end up feeling exhausted, drained, frustrated or sad, then keep reading.
There is certainly not a one-size-fits-all answer to how do “do” the Holidays. But this is a good time to take a careful assessment of which activities you enjoy, and which you do only because you “should”.
Just a few minutes setting priorities may make all the difference.
Take a few minutes not to set some priorities and things may go a little smoother allowing you to breeze through December with a smile on your face.
