If you’re an empath, you probably noticed early in your life how your body or energy field behaves like a sponge that automatically absorbs energy from the environment. You probably noticed that not only can you clearly feel the emotions of the people you’re talking to, but you also tend to experience and process those emotions as if they were your own – especially if they’re emotions like fear, worry, or helplessness.
What’s even more interesting is that this happens not only when you absorb other people’s energy or emotions but also with various other energies you come into contact with.
You know what I’m talking about, don’t you?
For a long time I struggled with “absorbing other people’s energy.” I tried in various ways to rid myself of this strange “handicap” – a handicap for which there was no diagnosis, and I had no one to confide in who really understood what I was going through. The more I tried to free myself from the grip of “absorbed energy,” the more I felt like sinking deeper and deeper into quicksand. As a result, I began to believe that I was doomed to be completely antisocial and could never do a job where I dealt intensely with people.
But even that wouldn’t be a real problem if it weren’t for the fact that jobs where I deal with people are the most attractive to me. And this made me feel very uncomfortable and like I was trapped inside strange invisible walls. One day, however, I just got tired of playing the “poor and misunderstood me” game and decided to do something concrete instead of spending the rest of my life hiding and running away from people.
Deep down, I’ve always felt that the Universe supports courageous people and that courage is actually the most important prerequisite for personal growth. After all, all knowledge and experience is useless if you aren’t able to take the “leap into the unknown” when you feel it’s the right time.
And so I decided to embark on the journey of self-discovery, to take the plunge into uncharted waters and put at risk my “hidden and protected” microcosm in which I lived, in order to fully explore what actually happens inside me when I absorb other people’s energy or various other energies from the environment.
Initially, I started experimenting spontaneously, without knowing where, what, or how to do it. I followed my sense of freedom. Sometimes, for example, I deliberately extended my interactions with people whose extremely dense energy automatically triggered (or made me feel) a strong sense of anxiety and depression in me. I willingly let this dense energy to fill me and penetrate me deeply. Instead of trying to get rid of it, I simply observed its “life of its own.” I repeated this process in places where I experienced something similar.
Although I often felt completely alone on this journey because there was no one to share my experiences and challenges with, I can now clearly see how the Universe provided different kinds of “helpers” at critical moments.
The journey to find out why I was absorbing other people’s energy took much longer than I thought it would. But eventually the pieces of the puzzle fell into place. And you know what? It was worth it.
Today, absorbing other people’s energies is no longer an issue for me. Although my energy system still functions as it used to – eagerly absorbing all kinds of energies from my surroundings – it no longer bothers me. On the contrary, it’s exactly what allows me to experience life in the most natural way for me. Without it, I’d feel incomplete.
Therefore, I’d like to draw your attention to the phenomenon of “absorbing other people’s energies” and explain to you why you cannot avoid this process as an empath and what is really behind it – because absorbing other people’s energies isn’t a problem in itself.And I mean that literally.
