Why Empaths Should Clear Negative Energy Often, and How To Do It

It is important for empaths to clear their energy often

It is important for empaths to clear their energy often, because we easily absorb the energy of others around us. 

Imagine walking into a party, where one couple just had a huge argument.  They are feeling tense and upset.  Another woman just found out she got a promotion and she and her husband are celebrating.  In another corner sits a man who recently lost his best friend in an accident.  He is still reeling from the impact.  (I know as an empath, you are probably feeling all of those emotions, just by me describing them.)  Take a deep breath.
Empaths can feel the energy of others simply by walking in a room.  We instantly know if someone is having a bad day, if they are sad, or even if they are happy about something.

If you are not careful, you can end up overwhelmed or exhausted when those feelings weren’t even yours to begin with.  

My favorite way to clear energy

My favorite way to clear negative energy is by taking an epsom salt bath.   

I put 1 cup of epsom salt in a jar with 1/4 cup coconut oil and about 20 drops of essential oil.  Mix and put a few tablespoons into a warm bath.  
Magnesium from the epsom salt is great for relaxation and can relieve pain.  
Use geranium, grapefruit, frankincense, lavender, tea tree or copaiba essential oils for skin benefits and even more relaxation.  I like to mix a few, usually geranium and copaiba or frankincense and grapefruit.

Here are some of my other favorite ways to clear energy

-a walk in nature
-diffusing essential oils, like peppermint, bergamot or ylang ylang
-sitting on the beach and listening to the waves

However, clearing energy doesn’t have to be something that takes a lot of time or effort.  You can simply stop and take a few deep breaths.  Make an intention not to take on anyone else’s feelings.  Say to yourself, “This is their’s, not mine.”

These are a few other ways to clear energy:

-burn sage or palo santo
-wear crystals like, black tourmaline, clear quartz, rose quartz and lapis lazuli as jewelry or stuck in your pocket or bra
-imagine a bubble around you protecting you
-leave the area of negative energy (even a bathroom break can help)

Whichever way you choose to clear your energy, it is important to do it often, so that you don’t take on the emotions of others.  Life can be difficult enough with our own emotions, right?  This is an important, and often overlooked, practice of self-care for empaths.
