What is an empath? An empath is someone who feels what another person is feeling on an emotional level. Empaths place themselves in the shoes of others, feel the person’s emotions, and experience it as if it were their own.

Before, I go any further I want you to know that I am not an expert on this subject. I am only sharing my own personal experience and what I have read about empaths. From what I understand, there are several types of empaths, but I am only concentrating on an emotional empath.

An empath is born with heightened senses and these senses are increased if they experience childhood trauma. I can relate to this because of what I experienced in my childhood. By the age of five, I became very aware of my surrounds. I played well alone and was drawn to nature. There were energies around me that I could see and hear. I was very frightened because I did not understand what was happening.

I learned that as empaths grow older, they become more sensitive. They are introverts and extroverts, but most empaths are introverts. I am an extrovert when I choose to be. Spending time with family and friends is very enjoyable but the introvert part of me prefers to be alone.

When I was younger, I did not enjoy being alone. But when I started on the path of developing my spirituality and intuition, that changed. I may get out and socialize but I always leave early because I look forward to my solitude. Empaths need their time alone to recharge, contemplate, and commune with Spirit.

Because of a need to be alone, it could be difficult for an empath to maintain a relationship. As much as they may want a significant other in their life, the person would have to understand and accept who they are. Ideally, another empath would be a perfect match.

What can an empath do to protect their energy? I really struggle with this. When I pick up on others’ emotions that are sad, I cry. Once while at work, a co-worker was fired from her position. I held her hand as we talked and without warning, I became emotional and began to shed tears. I was so embarrassed. Another time, a co-worker shared with me her struggles, but things were beginning to turn around for her. Again, I cried because I felt joy that she was overcoming the years of struggle. What can I do to control this?

These are six tips I found on the internet that empaths can do to protect their energy:

  • Set healthy boundaries (I am better at that now.)
  • Try journaling (I journal.)
  • Start a mindfulness practice (I can try that.)
  • Try visualization (What do I visualize?}
  • Walk in nature (I love nature.)
  • Plan for emotional overload (What does that mean?)

I am trying to figure it out. How do I protect myself from taking on someone else’s emotions? If you are an empath and have figured it out, I welcome your feedback.

Love is Light & Light is Love



Hello Humanity,

I thought you might benefit from Ra Ha Sha message channeled by Dianne Aquarius.  

Love is Light and Light is Love


Channeled Conveyance From Ra Ha Sha: Message of Calmness and Unity

I greet you in the love and unity of the one infinite creator. The purpose of this conveyance is to instill calmness during this time of transition. As you begin to transition from third density to fourth density, you will experience unpredictability in your daily existence. There will be much change in the constructs you have devised and come to rely upon. Your political, economic and social constructs will be going through great change. There will also be environmental situations that will impact your planet and its inhabitants.

All of these shifts in your once predictable life are occurring at this time for a divine purpose. These changes are bringing enlightenment and an awakening of consciousness to many beings who are ready for this transition to fourth density. The reason for what you may call chaos is to facilitate change to those who needed a more significant experience to wake up.

At this time, we encourage you to go within and find your center. In order to find your center you must remember who you are at the core of your essence. You are an extension of Creator. The more you feel the connection between yourself and Creator the more you will experience wholeness. It is your soul’s natural state to be whole. Remember you were created in love by an all loving Creator. In times of turmoil, remember who you are by feeling the unity and love you have with Creator. We also encourage you to feel the connection between yourself and the inhabitants of your planet and all other planets. All beings are made by Creator and are truly connected as such.

During meditation, open your heart center. Imagine sending and receiving love to Creator to experience wholeness and unity with all that is. The love that Creator has for you is complete and whole. Feel the divine connection you have to all other beings and send them love. For when you remain in a state of love, you can not experience lower vibrational emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger and depression. There are many changes you will be experiencing in the coming months that can conjure lower vibrational emotions. We encourage you to remain in a state of love and unity with Creator and all that is. We leave you in the love and unity of the one infinite Creator.
