5 Empath Tips to Protect Your Energy Through the Holidays Spiritual and Ambitious with Whitney McNeill

    • Spirituality

Attention ALL Empaths!! In this episode Whitney is going to be giving you some tips to help protect your energy as we approach the holiday season. Regardless of what emotions the holidays bring up for you, it can still be a very draining time of year for the empath. She’ll give you some tools you can use now, or anytime really, to protect your energy and hopefully forgo any overwhelm we typically face during such a social season. 
Clearing Your Energy 
As an empath you need to make clearing your energy a priority. You tend to soak up the energy around you like a sponge, however they don’t always release it from their system on a regular basis. That can leave you confused as to whether what you are feeling is your or something you picked up along the way. All the holiday centered activities like shopping, parties, family gatherings, etc. put you in a position to be bombarded with the energy of those around you. Therefore you can see how important it is to remove that energetic residue regularly. Whitney shares several methods to do this such as salt baths, showers of light, and others. 
Alone Time 
Alone time gives you an opportunity to tune out the noise of the emotions and energy of others and tune back into what you are really feeling and experiencing. Being mindful of how we feel and are affected in certain situations or around certain people can help you bring focus on how to set your intentions before your next interaction to keep your energy clear and protected. Listen as Whitney gives some great ideas for how to set appropriate boundaries to get the time alone you need. 
Say No 
It is ok to say no if there is something that you really don’t feel aligned to do or a place you don’t want to go. If you force yourself to do the thing or go to the place, you will probably not be the happiest version of yourself in that experience. So think of it that way. Is it fair to everyone else to have a stressed, sad, or just generally unhappy you? In all honesty, the event would probably have been more enjoyable for all involved if you held the boundary of no. 
Watch What We Consume 
Whether it's all the unhealthy snacks, treats and family feasts we consume that are not part of our typical diet or its the exposure to news, gossip, and unhealthy conversation at the gatherings we attend; as we take them in they can leave us feeling very heavy & tired in many different ways. Whitney gives you some unique perspectives on how to be more mindful of the energy you are consuming during this time of year. 
Protection 
You have a Protector Spirit Guide so utilize them this time of year. They are here to watch over you on the earth plane. If you know you are going into a situation or gathering that will not be the most comfortable for you, call on your Protector and ask them to buffer the energy of others so that you can remain open and balanced. Listen as Whitney describes another exercise you can do to protect your own energy called the Aura Bubble. 
Take care of yourself this holiday season. And until the next episode…. Here’s to staying Spiritual & Ambitious.
