Empaths and Highly Sensitive People May Feel Drained

Samantha says being an empath is generally draining. “You may feel dread or have to prepare yourself to be around people. It makes it impossible to get down to what you truly feel instead of what others are projecting to you,” says Samantha. “There are a few people who are very good at disguise. Their energy may feel positive at first, but they can’t keep up the wall very long.”
Empaths need a place where they can be alone each day to replenish their positive energy. For that reason, living alone is essential for some like Samantha. She says this is the only way she can begin her day without feeling anxious or sometimes deeply depressed. On the contrary, animals calm her because they present themselves honestly and are pure beings at all times. “I don't usually feel much from them unless they have been abused or are hurt,” she says. “Sometimes I feel the same around very young children.”

Private space is very important to energy-sensitive people, so plan to find a place to practice these techniques. Your space should be free of clutter and arranged so it allows energy to flow and not get stuck. For some really easy tips on how to create a beneficial space using the principles of feng shui, I suggest Tisha Morris’ book, 27 Things to Feng Shui Your Home.

If your space is used by other family members, you may need to cleanse your sacred space before you begin each session. I suggest smudging with sage, lighting incense or a candle, drumming, shaking a percussion rattle, or ringing a bell. Your sacred space will become your personal haven, so make it special. After several sessions, you may notice how positive energy has accumulated in your sacred space and welcomes you each time you enter.

Do you have a quiet place in your home where you can revive yourself spiritually? This is one of the most important things an empath can do to keep from being bombarded by detrimental energy in their environment.
