Protecting Your Energy for Empaths and Intuitives

Written By By Esoteric Esa

cover art by Danielle Noel Art

It goes without saying that the energy in today’s global climate is dense, and for good reason. You reading this, are a highly sensitive person, or so you identify with such. Whether you resonate with the term empath or intuitive, one thing is clear, you have a close connection with energy. Whether it’s projecting energy or receiving energy, you’re doing this on a daily basis ranging from your interactions online to in-person communication. You’re constantly internalizing and perceiving energy.

In times of crisis, and especially for those moments when we find ourselves in fight or flight, we can strain our energetic body by depleting it or consuming energy as we pick it up through our empathetic abilities and perceive its consciousness.  If you have been finding yourself feeling tired regularly, lethargic, emotionally unstable, depressed, anxious and can’t seem to find a medical reason to justify it, you might want to consider protecting your energy during this time of global crisis. 

We’re always presented with two vibrations of existing in. We can be in a state of love or state of fear. With the current state of events, we find ourselves toggling back and forth between the two timelines and sometimes picking up on the collective energy. This can be heavy on our energetic body. You might want to consider creating a personal practice to protect your energy – your aura.

 

Here are some simple methods you can test to see what works best for you when it comes to protecting your energy as an empath or intuitive. 

  1. Limit your consumption of negative content/messaging/media. 
  2. Practice daily gratitude. 
  3. Connect with white light and perform daily or weekly white light showers over your auric body. 
  4. Keep yourself grounded thru root chakra work or daily walks. 
  5. Set an energetic field around you that acts as a first line of defense from low vibrational energy interfering with your personal energy. 
  6. Cut chords with anyone or experiences that are weighing you down. You can watch how to do so here: https://youtu.be/Wa4ahcVfI3w 
  7. Work with protective crystals such as black tourmaline, obsidian or tiger’s eye. 

Taking time to decompress and practice self-care is likely an intuitive download you’ve been receiving at this moment. Honor the moments of slowing down and sit in your Hermit energy of the Tarot to go within. Connecting with an energy healer such as a pranic or reiki practitioner could also assist you with feeling realigned with your true self. Be easy on yourself and take time to do nothing, if that’s what makes you feel most at ease. 

May you manifest wisely.

thank you for this! As an empath & sensitive person in general, I sometimes find it hard to try to look on the bright side of all this time on my hands and trying not to just consume social media..

Insightful article! I believe these steps will help bring my levels up. I’ve been feeling drained, lazy and disconnected and it’s multiple reasons as to why, so I’ve been having trouble on where to start to alleviate the pressure. I am sensitive and I’ve been noticing its effect more lately. Thanks for this post.

I love this, Esoteric Esa! Daily walks and daily gratitude have been a game changer for me, even before this pandemic. They both promote lasting peace and positivity. Sometimes I even like to end my gratitude lists with a positive vision – I write a paragraph which paints a picture that brings me joy (i.e. spending a day at the beach, opening holiday presents, etc.) I highly recommend doing so!

I did not realize that I can leave comments. These posts are so helpful! I am an empathetic and extremely sensitive but I can be rash and impulsive which affects my situations and this my actions. Thanks for this!

Was on the brink of a panic attack after a stressful situation at work this morning. While I had about a hundred emails and people pinging me after the situation, I knew I needed to care for my mind.. So I took a walk instead. It didn’t take away all my anxiety, but I did do what I needed to take care of myself psychically and mentally. Self care is so important to prioritize, especially with the odd and difficult situation we’re currently in. Thanks Luna Lifted <3

I definitely needed this reminder! I feel that I constantly pick up on people’s energy! Sometimes no matter how hard I try, those energies grab onto me, and it can definitely be draining. Thank you for reminding me to take time for myself! 💜

This was so helpful!! Felt like this article came at a right point in my life. It can be so difficult to let others go or take more care of my energy. This article spoke volumes to me, thank you! I definitely want to write those points down in my journal as a reminder!

With the pandemic, I’ve started to recognize those in my life without pure intentions and the effect it has on me. I have always been an empath but lately others energies have had a deeper toll on myself. I have been working to remove myself from those who hurt my energy but this post has showed me ways to reground and protect it. I’m very thankful for this site and all that it brings. I’ve been working with black obsidian and tigers eye for the past couple days and I plan on starting to limit the amount of negative media by unfollowing/ disconnecting from some people and researching root chakra work!

I can relate so much to the idea of protecting your energy! I’ve literally just had to cut out so many energy vampires out of my life. I never realize how some people though they mean well can just drain you of everything. And how amazing you feel once those people are out of your life!
