3 Non-Negotiables for Sensitives and Empaths

Last week I shared a post that described the difference between Sensitive, Empathic and Intuitive.

If you missed it you can find it here.

 

You read through the traits and qualities and probably found yourself saying, ‘YES! YES! THAT’s ME!!’ at some point.

Maybe, if you are like me, when I first discovered these terms I thought, ‘Thank GOD! I am not crazy, there are others out there like me and there is even a NAME for it!!’

 

It felt good to be acknowledged and understood in a way I never had before. Many friends and family, though they meant well, thought I was too sensitive and needed to ‘toughen up’. Which is actually the opposite of what I needed to do!

 

So you may be saying, ‘That is awesome Jenean, I know I am empathic, sensitive, intuitive (or all 3!), but what do I do now? What can I do to feel good in public??

Well learning how we work best individually is a life-long process, but here are 3 keys steps that I have found are non-negotiable for Sensitives, Empaths and Intuitives alike.

 

1. GROUND YOURSELF

I cannot stress this enough. Grounding yourself is the single most important tool you can learn as it will allow you to shift your energy in a heartbeat.

As sensitives most of us struggle to stay in our bodies and we float up to our heads and start over-thinking, over-analyzing, over…whatever, as an avoidance tactic to feeling everything.

When you feel everything as deeply as we do, it is easy to want to escape your body, which is why grounding ourselves is so important to owning your power.

Think of it like this. Our nervous system is like the electrical wires in your house. It receives and transfers energy to where it is most needed. If it is not grounded, the energy runs amok and you have a situation that is out of control.

Out of control electricity causes you to blow fuses, burn wires, shock yourself, and so on.

Imagine what that feels like in your body!

How do you ground yourself?

~ Take a walk…invite the fairies and angels to join you!

~ Imagine tree roots growing out the bottom of your feet and into the earth. Focus on the feeling of connecting to the earth

~ Walk barefoot on the grass

 

2. Protect yourself

As sensitives we are natural givers, so our hearts are WIDE open. Which is amazing because that is our strength…loving others.

However, with a wide open heart, the energy flows 2 ways…out AND in, so that means we are receiving others energy as well.

This can be awesome when you are with your favorite person deep in intimate conversation, but not so awesome when you are walking through the grocery store and the crabby lady, the disgruntled employee and the screaming child all send out energy (unconsciously) that you absorb!

So how do you protect yourself?

Adjust your chakras. Chakras are energy centers on and around your body. You can shrink and expand these to fit your needs in the moment. Here a great video by the fantastic Rev Kerti  https://youtu.be/z_U6rT5Jqsk

 

I also did a training call on Energetic Protection for Sensitive Women a while ago, you can listen to that here:

3. Cut cords

When you connect with someone, you create an energetic connection with them. It looks just like a cord of light that attaches from you to the other person. When you end the connection (ie conversation, relationship, etc) you still have the energetic connection. This can become very draining as you are still giving energy to those you may no longer have contact with (think old relationships, work experiences, etc)

Cutting the cords allows you to reclaim your energy and you may feel an immediate boost after doing so.

 

How do you cut cords?

Close your eyes.

Take 3 grounding deep breaths.

Visualize your body and see the cords coming from you.

If you desire you can ask to see who they are connected to, but knowing this is not necessary to cut them.

Invite Archangel Michael to assist you in cutting cords, by saying something like,

‘Archangel Michael, I ask you to assist me in cutting cords to _______(specific person, situation or you can say all cords in all time, space and dimensions.)

See him stepping forward with his sword of light and cutting through all the cords.

Watch the cords sever and see your energy return to you.

Notice and sensations, feelings, thoughts that arise and just observe them.

Thank Archangel Michael for his assistance.

How Do I Know If I’m Sensitive, Empathic or Intuitive?

Hey lovelies,

 

It has been quite a while since I have written as I had to walk away from my biz. I had to realign and refocused so I could be in a better place to serve you.

I will share that process with you at some point, but for now, I wanted to say a big ‘Hello’ from my  heart to yours and let you know that I  will be talking about all things Sensitive, Empathic and Intuitive.

I will be showing you how to live strong, courageous, bold lives even though you FEEL EVERYTHING.

 

It is possible to experience peace in any moment, not absorb everyone’s negativity and have a beautiful life.

Let’s get started!

So I had a question today about how do you know if you are Sensitive, Empathic or Intuitive.

I am posting my answer here, because I get it a lot and you may be wondering the same thing yourself

 

Sensitivity is a natural form of communication. It is actually our main form (energetic/vibrational) because it is what Spirit is…energy. Our feelings are a form of vibration that communicates to us how in alignment with something we are. So in essence everyone is sensitive because we all feel.

That 6th sense is our main sense. However, it has been ‘taught’ out of us, to ignore our feelings and thinking things through has become prominent. So most people don’t trust this sense or even want to acknowledge it exists simply because they so deeply believe in the logical side of living.

Don’t get me wrong…the logical side is important and it has it’s place.

Because in nature all things must be brought into balance, more and more people are being born with the inability to avoid or ignore these feelings and when we attempt to our bodies break down and our lives go into chaos
(this was chosen on purpose by you before you were born- as part of your life path to help bring balance to the world).

This also falls in line with the rise of the feminine and the need to balance the masculine and feminine energies.
thinking, logical, action, giving = masculine
feeling, creative, resting, receiving = feminine…but more on that later wink emoticon

So there are a group of people (millions really) that are called Sensitive.
They can feel a vibrational shift in an instant.
The highly-sensitive person has been defined as those that have a biological difference that allows their nervous system to process sensory data much more deeply and thoroughly than the average person.

Our nervous systems are what ‘read’ the energy/vibration of a person, place, thing, experience.

Empaths are Sensitive people that not only feel what is happening, but take it on as their own and physically feel it as thought it was happening to them.

Intuitives are Sensitive people that know things without knowing how they know.
Ideas, thoughts, words, pictures, feelings, just pop into their head or they can see a clear picture of it, they know what is going to happen even before it happens.

Here are a few articles (there are many out there!) on traits of sensitives, empaths and intuitives that may help you discover yourself a bit deeper.

Drama is a choice

Jenean15Drama is a choice in how you choose to respond to a situation.

Place your trust in the Divine, and believe that things are happening for you, not to you.

The MOST critical element of understanding the lesson and opportunity in every moment~  look at the mirror.

Life is a mirror, reflecting back to you what you are putting out.
It is there, so you have a clear awareness of what you’re giving and if this in alignment with what you want.

If you are experiencing what you don’t want then you have a belief in you that you need to shift to begin aligning with the desired outcome and the mirror will show you this.

How much drama and emotional turmoil you experience is up to you.

 

Your feelings carry the message of the moment. The fear, anger, doubt, or frustration all are simply telling you where you are not in alignment and where you are holding on to lower energies. It is the emotional undercurrent that is being reflected ~ look to that for understanding NOT the actual actions.

 

This is the gift of the mirror and as Sensitives, Empaths and Intuitives, we are more aware of the emotional undercurrent than anyone! YAY!!!

WHY is this good? Because it is easier for us to shift and change the situation!!

 

You don’t have to stay stuck in drama and chaos, you simply need to be aware of what is being reflected and change it!

 

I KNOW how hard the mirror can be to understand in the beginning (I have been studying it for 8 years)  so let me help you figure it out.

Make time this week to talk to me and clean up your drama for good!

Sending mirror love,

Jenean

 

PS. Make sure you block off time now, for the Monday Night Training call at 5pmPT / 8pm ET where this week we will be talking about energetic boundaries and why without them you feel tired, drained and frustrated! See you there!

Let’s Change Your Life…RIGHT NOW!

 

*Warning ~ I’m going into major coach mode here:

 

Let’s change your life right now.

I want you to take 3 minutes from your day and answer 4 questions

 

1. What is your big dream ~What is it that your heart is most calling for?

It could be to empower young girls or simply experience peace in your daily life.

 

Imagine you have achieved and are living your above dream…what does it feel like?

Go deep: What foods do you eat, who are you hanging out with, what time do you get up in the morning, how do you feel??

 

2. What is stopping you from making that dream real?

What is the reason you are using to hold yourself back ~ time, money, other people, kids, etc

Be honest with yourself about it. Nobody else will see this

 

3. On a scale of 1-10, how committed are you to make this dream a reality? (1= no commitment and 10 = total commitment)

Again, be really honest with yourself. If you are not committed that is okay! This question is designed to help you take responsibility…now you can!

~ If you answered 6 or less, then know you are not fully ready to make change happen and simply be honest with yourself that what you are saying you want is really not what you want. No judgement, no shame. Just honesty.

~ If you answered 7 or higher, then proceed to question 4.

4690934909_b9eebf2cc3

Score a 7 or higher? Keep reading, this is just for you:

 

4. What are you waiting for?

Seriously, if it is that important to you and you are really committed to making changes in your life to live out your dream, then it is time to problem solve this and MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Maybe you need to get a second job, bring in an accountability partner, create a plan, find a mentor or coach, learn to say no.

Whatever it is, it is time to do it.

 

Can I get real with you for a second?

If you are really committed to making this happen, then you have most likely already did a TON of research, gotten the information to make it happen, but you hit a roadblock and stayed there.

 

It was Albert Einstein who said, “you cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”

So if you got yourself into debt, you will need to learn new ways of thinking, habits and an entire new relationship with money to get you out of it.

Make sense?

 

So if you are seriously committed to taking control of your life  to create more  peace in your life, live in your power and on purpose, I want to ask you one more time ~ What are you waiting for?
