A Guide To Clearing Energy As An Empath

Being an empath means that you often absorb other people’s energy. You are stuck with thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are not yours simply because you are so attuned to everybody else’s. 

This can be exhausting and harmful to your mental state, which is why it is important to clear your energy field as an empath so that you can return to feeling happy and mentally healthy as quickly as possible. 

It can be difficult, but we have some tips and tricks that might help you to clear your energy field as an empath.

As an empath, it can be incredibly difficult to detach from the emotions and feelings that you are feeling from other people. However, you must do so to keep your energy field clear. 

You can do this by simply reminding yourself that their feelings are not your own, and you are not required to make them feel better at all. You can also ensure that you know yourself well enough to differentiate between your feelings and other people’s feelings around you.

Once you have participated in a social interaction, you can often feel extremely drained as an empath because you have absorbed other people’s energies. You must get rid of these energies somehow. 

One of the best ways to do this is to sit down and put pen to paper. Journaling every emotion you are feeling and why to understand which emotions are your own and absorbed. 

Limits

As an empath, it is of the utmost importance that you know your limits regarding social interactions. You have to ensure that you know when you need to go home, not to exhaust yourself. 

Ensure that you set yourself a time limit when you are going to participate in social interactions so that you can go home before you have reached your social cap for the day. This will ensure that you never overexert yourself.

One of the best and fastest ways to clear your energy field is to submerge yourself in water. This can mean that you take a nice, long bath with Epsom salts when you get home or go for a swim. 

Doing this will ensure that your energetic field is cleared of anybody else’s energy but your own, and you will not feel exhausted and hole up in your bedroom until the next social interaction that you participate in. 

Grounding

You must have some grounding rituals that can help you feel more connected to yourself again after absorbing other people’s energies. There are many ways to do this so that you can choose your favorite. 

The best way to ground yourself is to create a strong bond between your feet and the earth. Plant your bare feet squarely on the ground so that you can create a strong bond between your feet and the ground. 

Boundaries

As an empath, you may not be very good at setting boundaries because you feel you need to help any and every person who needs help. However, you must set boundaries. 

Setting boundaries will let other people know that they cannot always turn to you and that you cannot be the person to solve everybody else’s problems. Knowing this, people will respect your time and space much more. 

Unplug

In the age of social media, leaving a party does not necessarily mean that you have left the party. Social media keeps the party at your fingertips for ages and offers glimpses into the lives of many other people at the same time. 

However, as an empath, it is important to make sure that you unplug to ground yourself and do not absorb any of those energies. Turn your phone off or mute your social media for a couple of hours.
