As energetically sensitive beings, it can be overwhelming to be around a lot of people, to be social, and to do this for an extended period of time.
This was definitely an issue for me this past weekend when I spent 6 hours at my booth at the Guiding Light Healing Arts Festival.
While I was a little social butterfly and chatty and all that during the festival, by 5pm I felt totally energetically tapped out.
So what can you do when there are certain social situations that you need to be part of but yet will take a lot out of you energetically?
Here are three measures you can take:
- Put a layer of protection up. My favourite is to visualize a rainbow energetic shield around me and set the intention that only love is able to pass both ways through the shield. That way energetic crud cannot get through.
- Ask your angels to provide you with a second layer of protection and to be with you for the entire time. Also ask them only to bring good people your who have lovely positive energy.
- When you are interacting with people, really be aware of how your energy level is holding up. When you notice yourself starting to feel drained, you can 1) recenter yourself in the moment by observing your breath, and/or 2) wrap up the conversation and get to a quiet space where you can take a little time to recharge.
Next time I go to this festival I am definitely bringing a grounding stone like my mochi ball or green moss agate too. I was very spacy when I left!
One last tip, especially when you’re in a situation where you’re meeting a lot of new people, is to really be discerning of those you meet. I know we all want to think the best of everyone, but there are negative peeps out there that will just drain your energy and not be good for you.
Notice things like negative talk, focusing on negative things, giving unwanted advice, and creepy gut feelings. All of these are red flags.
Being lightworkers and empaths, we often feel like we have to be nice to everyone. But that’s not honouring of us. We need to put ourselves first, and not put up with negative people.
If you encounter a negative person while you’re out and about, as soon as you pick up on it, make an excuse and leave : ) It’s nice to have a go-to excuse handy too. So think up one in advance that you feel comfortable saying.
I hope this has helped! Feel free to share any tips you have too.
