I’ve been working expos for a few years now, but being an empath or working as an empath even comes up in my practice. I do have the ability to work as an empath. It’s not a good thing. It’s not a bad thing. And it’s not a “special” thing like some people would like to believe. It can, however, be a pain in the rear if you don’t know how to work properly as an empath.
As you may have guessed, this is a soap box issue for me…
For those of us who are empaths, we feel what you are feeling, what you’re going through. We “get it” at a very basic level. In feeling what you feel, we may take your energy into us. This happens quite often when we are doing healings. But think about it for a moment. As an empath, I may take your energy into me, which makes you feel better. I, however, am now gunked up with your stuff. In comparison, traditional Shamans are able to take your energies in, but they are wired to transmute or neutralize those energies, then have the ability to move those energies back out. You feel better and the Shaman is left energetically clean. Empaths are not wired to do this vital step.
So, how do you do your work without getting overloaded and overwhelmed with everyone else’s stuff? I use the Gold Light to hold myself and the area around me clear. Specifically, after I ground to the core of the planet and bring that energy up through me, I bring down the Universal energy from the Source. I ask that Universal energy to flood through me, then mix with the core energy. I then ask for a column of Gold Light to come down starting from above my Higher Self and extending down about four feet below my feet. I then ask the Gold Light to spread all through my body then out as far beyond the bounds of my aura as it wishes to go. Within this Golden orb, I am secure, sacred, clean. When working with my clients, I imagine an overlay of them in the buffer zone just outside the edge of my aura. Once I feel what’s going on, I let the overlay go and work on the issue presented. It’s like peeling off an onion layer.
If you would like more detailed information and instruction on the Gold Light Exercise, please go to Drs. Loren and Diane Mickelson’s website, www.drsmick.com. They have posted a video on their website where Loren will walk you through the process.
It takes a little bit of practice, but the exercise is soooo worth it. That is, unless you like catching every little thing your clients have, or feeling sick by the end of your work day, or….
OK, the soap box session is over. It’s time for some fun!
