The word “Empath,” gets thrown around a lot lately. It’s become a buzz word for people who take on other’s emotions and get worn out and exhausted by them, sometimes without even realizing that this is what is happening. Chances are, if you are human, you have other humans in your life. People you live with, work with, hang out with who are a part of you daily environment. This basically means that there is always a swirling vortex of human emotion surrounding you. This means that you are sharing the energy of a lot of different people.
So where do you draw the line between emotional energy, and how do you know if it’s yours or it’s theirs? A good question, and the truth of the matter is that it is often hard to tell. It turns out, that “Negativity,” another buzz word, can be quite contagious. This means that you can be having a perfectly wonderful day, and because your best friend and or colleague are up to here in negativity, you can suddenly become mired in what is theirs. How do you know when this is happening, and how is it possible to not get swept away? How can you be a supportive friend or colleague without having your buzz killed?
Meditation is one of the best tools for helping us to understand when the emotion does not belong to us. It is a modality of self-observation and understanding that can really help us to structure a boundary system that protects us from other people’s negativity. Nothing is better than understanding when it’s not you, and it’s not yours.
At Take Five Meditation we truly understand that your self-awareness about taking on other’s bad vibes, and knowing how to cultivate healthy boundaries, strengthens your ability to practice loving kindness to yourself and others without becoming drained.
We look forward to being a part of your self-awareness campaign as you cultivate a regular meditation practice.
With Contagious Positivity and Love,
Tara
