The articles I write on my Empath abilities are extremely personal to me.
Healing is one of the most difficult paths we might ever walk. Cancer patients would agree with me I know. Whatever it is you are struggling with, pain, disease, depression, anxiety, all leads us to a type of physical and mental anguish that sometimes we hide from the world. I should know. I was once known as Mrs. Happy.
I began to notice at a young age that I knew when people were just saying things to say them. I knew when people were not honest. When people said they were happy and weren’t really. When people were suffering from an “affliction” of some sort. Honestly, I wish I could tell you exactly what this sort of things feels like. But I can’t. It’s just this vibration of “not truth” that waves out around them. That doesn’t even explain it well. But imagine the thought bubbles popping up over someone’s head telling you exactly what they are really thinking. Would you really want to know? I didn’t.
As you can imagine, this type of thing leads to people not liking you. They think you are a know it all, braggart or whatever when you are simply more aware of the truth than sometimes even they are. But how does this bring me to my healing path?
The “knowing” led me to go to the doctor when I was only 22 years old and get tests run. This “knowing” or intuition, was so deep that when doctors said something that wasn’t true or couldn’t possibly be it, I would either lead them to what was true, or seek out another doctor who would run the test I wanted.
It can be very frustrating when doctors don’t listen to you. They thought I had just become certified in “Google” and was thinking I was a doctor myself. But here’s the interesting thing. I didn’t even know where to look for what was going on in my body, I just KNEW something wasn’t right. I would close my eyes before I researched, take deep breaths, and start digging.
As soon as the right information became available, I immediately knew. Extremely strong feelings washed over me and I felt like I had uncovered another puzzle piece. Each and every time, I trusted myself, I became more whole again. I started healing. The path around me lit up more brightly. And whispered to my soul “keep going”.
When I was not on the right path, or started second guessing myself due to doctors, I felt like I had a machete in my hand whacking away at weeds and briars, pulling some sort of Romancing the Stone Michael Douglas move in the rain forest of my life. I would look back at how far I had come and know that I couldn’t go back. I had to keep moving forward.
So here I was on this path and no one understood it but me. It was my path, and mine alone to make. I learned to rely only on my own abilities, intuition and grit to move forward. And I sure as hell was not going to give up no matter how hard it was, or how many mudslides I encountered that seemingly led me nowhere, but in fact, were part of the process that led me to new discoveries along the way.
How Can You Do the Same?
- Listen to that small inner guide, your inner wild woman, and don’t ever shush her. She has some important things to tell you, and if you listen, you will know that she is guiding you on the right path.
- Just BE still. I never discount that I am being guided by something higher. In the Bible there is a passage that says “Be still, and know that I am God.” For many years, I was made to feel that using my empath guide was wrong. I was not worthy. But wait. What if I am worthy? What if I was called to do this work and all these years I was squashing it because of some religious beliefs? You can call your inner guide whatever you want. Just listen to it without guilt.
- Learn to be open to possibilities. I now take my stillness as time to connect and see things in the way I am being led. I do a combination of prayer, meditation, and affirmations. More often I am seeing this creep into my everyday life as something that I know I must do to get clear on my path.
- Reflect daily. You MUST use a journal of some sort even if you say to yourself that you don’t like to write. It is pen to paper. You still your mind and breathe. Then go with the flow of the pen. This is very important as you move from thinking actively to feeling. The thoughts just flow into your journal and before you know it, you might find what is blocking you written there on the vanilla paper.
- Let go. This one is the hardest one, I know. Once you have done all that you can to work towards releasing your pain, to healing whatever it is that’s either physically or mentally causing you anguish, you have to release it. No guilt. No remorse. You have done the work.
I truly hope this helps you get clarity on something you are working towards. If you are interested in doing more work, as a type of self-guided course, please feel free to visit my 4 Weeks to Wellness course. You have to be willing to do the work for yourself in order for something to change in your life. If you listen closely to your intuition as you work towards healing, you will find you already know what to do. My course is merely a guide to help you uncover what you already know. Hugsxx ~Aimee
