We’ve just passed the two-year mark of the beginning of the COVID-19 global pandemic - something everyone knew was possible, yet no one saw coming.
Around the world, the pandemic has caused untold pain and suffering. Those who identify as empaths have found this period particularly difficult.
Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of others, and an empath is someone who feels more empathy than the average person. Typically, an empath recognizes emotions in people, often just by looking at another person's face. They also feel these emotions more intensely.
As an empath, it is vital that you find a way to protect yourself through the pandemic aftermath. Below are three powerful coping mechanisms for you to try.
The Jaguar Protection Method:
Visualize a fierce and patient jaguar who keeps guard over you. The jaguar keeps toxic energy and toxic people away. The jaguar is sleek, powerful and beautiful, and when you call upon her, she encircles and protects you. Visualize the jaguar and feel her strength.
Visualize a beautiful shield or bubble made of soft light that protects you and keeps you safe from the negative energy of others. With your shield, you can be free to go anywhere or meet anyone, knowing that their toxic energy cannot permeate.
Identify What Drains You:
Identify the activities, people and thoughts that drain you. By knowing what and who they are, you are better able to avoid or at least prepare for encounters.
