Calling All Empaths & HSP’s!!!

Good Morning!!!!

 

Hope all is well…..

How To Write Well (Simple Formula) - Early To RiseIf you are one of my continued supporters I thank you for coming back. As you’ve seen consistency is a true struggle for me. That is mainly because I have a very difficult time writing if there isn’t any emotion tied to it. That’s why most of my posts have been sporadic over the years. I’m really trying to let go and just let it flow, because this in many ways is my therapy. Writing has helped me tremendously over the years. It’s so comforting to be able to get your feelings out using just a paper and pen.

During these last few days I’ve been feeling extremely off kilter. I’m not sure what it is, because the slightest change throws me off. I kind of feel like I’ve spent to much time alone. To be honest I have quite a few issues. I’m not crazy or anything like it. I just feel like I’m going crazy sometimes. I believe my problems come into play when I start to over analyze situations and people; that is something I do often. Noticing Empath Characteristics | HubPages

Many times I’m not sure if I feel this way because it’s the way I truly feel or could it be I’m picking up on other peoples emotions that are around me. I find myself always stuck between 2 emotions. I’m usually pretty happy but if I’m around someone who is talking about something sad or full of anger I tend to take on those emotions. I’ve always felt that was my flaw. As far back as I can remember I was never a normal child. I always excepted people for who they were, never what they looked like or what they had; and I do the same thing till this day.

I guess I struggle with being empathic because there are so many things that come with that. Especially if you don’t know how to protect your energy. I’m sure that’s why I’m not enjoying this gift; because I don’t know how to use it. At times it helps me to develop a deeper connection with people, because I’m able to put myself  in their situation and truly understand where they’re coming from. Other times it’s just “exhausting!!!”

What Are You Available For? How to Protect Your Energy and Honor Your  Boundaries — Chanee MomokoSometimes I wonder if my life would have turned out differently if I didn’t have the same people in my life. I wonder if I would have been this deep feeler. The other thing is my girls (goddaughters) have a touch of me in them. All three of them have displayed some of my traits. Of course they have their parents traits but I can see mine peeking around the vail. I feel extremely blessed to know a little bit of me rubbed off on them.

Lastly, if you’re an Empath and you have figured out how to protect your energy, please leave a comment as to what I can do to gain control over my life and emotions.

 

Make sure to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!! That is one very instrumental way to show your support. Also I would appreciate it immensely.

Mediator/ Empath

Empath- A person who’s able to feel emotions/energy on an intense level.

Good Morning!!!

Image result for INFPFrom what I’ve come to understand, empaths are strong. At times, I’m not going to lie, I hate my empathic ability. Reason being, it makes me vulnerable to other people’s emotions. It also doesn’t help that I’m an INFP. Meaning, I’m someone who place’s others feelings and wellbeing before my own. The over all picture of having this personality type may seem like it’s a good one to have, but it could also be seen as a burden. Burden because that means you won’t ever come first for you, because innately you’re wired to care for others before you’re able to care for yourself. I’m not sure if this behavior can be unlearned, but I at least need to get the order correct.

In reality, who is going to care more for you than you care for yourself? NO ONE! Maybe your mother or father, but that’s as far as that road goes, most of the time. So who better to be an advocate for you, than you? I’m not saying to be selfish, although sometimes it’s needed.

Don’t allow your energy to be sucked dry by ENERGY VAMPIRES; the people who’re seemingly going through something, but not really. Yeah, stay away from them. You can always tell who they are; they are those people who wake up negative emotion in you, seemingly for no good reason at all (regularly). The sad part of being around or interacting with someone like this; you feel completely depleted after you’ve encountered them.

GAURD YOUR ENERGY!!!!

Although INFP, HSP and Empaths are similar, they’re also different. So what that means is, no matter what personality type you are, you’re still capable of being an empath or Highly Sensitive Person. I just happen to be a Mediator/ Empath and HSP which go hand in hand.

Figure me out

“Can you believe what Kevall asked me?”

“Nah. What?”

“He asked me to stop f***ing other people.”

Passion was over the whole conversation with Kevall. She loved him, but she wasn’t sure if she wanted to go back to the way things were. She wasn’t satisfied then. During that time of being married and faithful, she felt she lost a little bit of herself.

Over the years since them decided to be polyamorous, she started to become more and more of the woman she felt she had always been. Which was something very beautiful in it self. She no longer felt unattractive or insecure because she had the chance to become that beautiful sexual butterfly she always believed herself to be.

By learning how many men and  women viewed her, she unlocked the deadbolt to her sexuality; more like burst that door off of the hinges. Now because life proved to be so good over the years; she wasn’t sure she was ready to turn back.

“So… what you gonna do?”

“I don’t know, girl.”

“Well, you know the only reason he wants you to stop now, is because he don’t want to look stupid to everyone else. Also I think by having Jaylen there the other night, it made things real to him.”

“Yeah, I think you right, girl. But I still don’t know what to do. I’m sure if I tell him ‘No’ he’s gonna get all up in his feelings.”

“You know it…. I hate to be the bearer of bad new; but he may even leave you. Are you ready for that?”

Passion wasn’t finished being a connoisseur of the many different flavors that were sexuality. So she wasn’t quite sure what to say or how to feel. On one hand, she didn’t want to loose him. On the other, she felt it was unfair for him to ask her to change once again, because of his ego.

“Shonda, I really don’t know… I never gave that a thought.”

“Are you still happy being his wife? Or are you more interested in becoming a THOT?”

“Damn! Why you got to say it like that?”

“I don’t mean anything by it. I’m just saying, know what you’re giving up before you decide to walk away from a 20+ year marriage.”

“Well, he’s definitely not going to get his answer today. I’m gonna take some time to think about it. Matter a fact… Girl what you doing this weekend?”

“Taking Brent to his father’s….. You know, he hasn’t seen him since we got divorced?”

“Are you serious?!”

Shonda was a divorcée, mother, and business woman; who took pride in everything she ever did. Things between her and her now ex-husband Ross, had gone sour because he couldn’t except her success. Mainly because she was taking nothing but W’s and he couldn’t catch a break. Sure he had a job, but because of the way he was raised, he felt it was the mans job to be the earner, protector, and provider. So naturally when roles switched, so did their feelings for each other.

“Yeah, girl. Unfortunately I am.”

“How long has it been? Because isn’t Brent; What?…  15 now.”

“Yep. But get this.. He saying I’m keeping him away from his son…. How?!”

“Well, are you?”

“For real? You really gonna ask me that?.. “You know I would never do that! My mother did that to my Dad. That’s why our relationship is strained till this day.”

“Shonda, please don’t get offended. It’s just, sometimes Baby Mother’s do things like that, because their trying to hurt their Baby’s Father just as bad as he hurt them.”

“Passion, there’s a big difference between being a Baby Momma and a WIFE. After all, I do have morals. No matter how mad I get, I would never do anything like that. Because, It wouldn’t be only hurting him it’ll be hurting my child.”

“Damn… Sorry. Didn’t mean to take it there. All I was trying to ask is; Do you wanna take a trip with me?”

“B**** where?! You know I’m down.”

“I’m thinking… South Africa?”

“Let me know when you ready.”

“Okay good! I’m gonna talk this over with Kevall tonight. Then I’ll call you with the details.”

“What made you wanna take this trip?”

“I just need to clear my head and possibly get some good pipe , before I make this decision.”

“Ha.. ha… ha.. Girl, you a mess!”

Take Your Health Into Your Own Hands.

 

 

 

I know all I’ve been talking about lately is health. I have to talk about it, because I’m still trying to get a handle on my health. The only way to do that is to research and study what’s good for my body. For as long as I can remember there has always been some kind of commercial or TV show that implied that meat and dairy was the way to go. But now that I’m older and I’m able to do my own research, I see that’s a lie. The way I see it, “The Keepers” who run this country, with the big money, are the ones who put suggestive thoughts in our heads, through television, movies, and radio. Many times what they suggest isn’t in your best interest, it’s in theirs. There are so many things that have been suggested and wired into the average American’s mind; it’s all about targeting and appealing to the average person’s senses.

From the time I was a little girl, I’ve always known that money is the driving force for a lot of choices. As we all know money equals power. So, it should make complete sense to you why we have been taught to think the way we do and to eat the way we have. The only reason some people are waking up now, is do to the information that the internet provides. I understand some people won’t believe a lot of the things they read, but some will. And that is all we need, just a few people to believe that everything that’s on TV isn’t real or is very suggestive in nature; because there’s an agenda behind it.

 What I’ve come up with is, the reason we were taught meat and dairy are great sources of calcium and protein is do to “The Keepers” need of weighing us down mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe this was done to make people passive, compliant, lethargic, and unmotivated to learn the truth. But things are starting to become clearer to a lot of people because the recent surge of vegans and vegetarians. Because of the massive conversion of meat eaters who have become either vegan or vegetarian, people are being informed that there is a better way to live, and that is plant based. Truth be known, that is the way we have always been meant to eat. What started the straying from the original way was famine, satiation, and taste. I think meat and dairy were something that was adapted in to the human diet, but it wasn’t something that we had on the regular, back in the days when we were still developing and learning how to care for ourselves.  I understand why those things became a part of some humans diets then.

The reason for consuming dairy and meat at that time was the ability for those things to keep you satiated for long periods of time. During those times there were those of us that didn’t reside in a lush tropical climate. Many people were stuck in colder climates and had no fruits, vegetables, nuts or seeds. They had to learn to make do with what they had, and what they had was meat, and some times dairy. These two things were only consumed because of their ability to keep a person full for a long period of time and because of the amount of nutrition they both were said to provide. We know now that the better nutrition comes from the actual source, which are fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. There’s really no need to consume flesh or dairy any longer, other than taste. Well, you can’t even say that anymore, because if you know how to season, you know how to make anything taste good.

 If you’re someone who believes meat and dairy are the only way to go, I invite you to try something you would never try on your own; and that’s going plant based for a month. During this time I would love it if you kept a journal of the way you feel, what you ate and other purifying things that come with this life style. It should be noted that the only way to make sure you keep high energy, is to eat whole foods and try your best to stay away from processed goods. Also, the more vegetables you eat, the better you’ll feel. But remember to get enough of  fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. Make sure to eat enough. That’s the great thing about this life style, you can eat until you’re satisfied.

THANKS FOR READING

P.S. I Would love if you came back and share your experience on a vegan life style. It would be extremely helpful to others who may want to go vegan, but don’t know enough about it. And if it wasn’t for you, please list why and your process in going plant based.
