At the time of writing this blog post, I’m currently sitting in a little coffee shop. It’s 1:16pm in a small town and all the people here are having coffee and “talking smart”. There are conversations flying about without even a small sliver of silence between breaths.
Being an empath, this used to bother me so much. No, I was never upset with the gossipers, the long and loud talkers themselves, the noise and energy is what used to bother me. It was sometimes maddening, in fact.
BUBBLE UP BUTTERCUP
Twenty years ago, my Spirit Guides told me to start imagining a bubble of white light in all directions of my body. I was to intend that this light protected me and filtered out negativity. In other words, it was to attract the good and stave off the bad.
After ignoring them for over a year, something I was very good at when I was younger, I tried it. LIFE CHANGING! I felt calmer (still do). I felt clearer (still do most often) and above all, the “noise” seem to be quieter.
Of course, I realized, it wasn’t the noise levels that changed. It was the energy around me that changed. I was finally able to feel calm around groups of people (most often). But, there were still moments where I couldn’t get myself into an even keeled energy.
As the room in this little coffee shop came alive with conversation, laughter, gossip and opinions. The old habit of “bracing myself” for the energetic roller coaster, that would surely follow, popped into my head but something different happened this time.
I felt calm. Almost meditative. The high and low tones of their voices became noise but a soft and soothing one. Then I heard my Spirit Guides say, “They are creating. They are all breathing life into the Universe. It does not matter what they are saying, feeling or thinking, they are creating and adding to the Universal expansion.”
This real life, in the moment, insight aided to me to be fully present in the situation even though the conditions where not ideal for this empath.
From now on, when I’m in a group whose energy may not be my favorite, I’m going to see every one of them in big bubbles of light as they speak the words, “I’m creating.”
P.S. If you feel that you would like/need a guided mediation to bubble up buttercup, try this one. Who doesn’t like a soothing voice of a British woman?
