If you’re a highly sensitive business owner like me, you probably know what this feels like:
You just spent an entire day on your computer, writing a ton of social media posts, going live on your Facebook page, connecting with clients, prospects, business partners …
And even though you love what you do and you’re deeply passionate about your work and calling, ever so often, you feel like there’s nothing you’d rather do than to run and hide.
At the end of the day, you often feel drained, anxious, overwhelmed, and you wish you could just take a few weeks off a.s.a.p., indulge in some much-needed self-care time, go hiking in the mountains, or recharge your batteries at a silent meditation retreat.
While you’re working, your mind tends to wander, you easily lose focus, and sometimes, you feel as though you’re hearing everybody else’s thoughts and feeling everyone else’s emotions—just not your own.
Because yes, that’s exactly what’s happening!
Being an empath in business isn’t always easy. While most people experience varying degrees of stress in their daily lives, dealing with our sensitivities can be even more challenging for us spiritual entrepreneurs.
If we ignore the messages we receive from our bodies for too long, we can easily become depleted, burned out, and disconnected from ourselves and our purpose.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way! You simply have to do things a bit differently than the average person. And that’s actually a good thing. It’s part of your mission here in this world. However, you want to make sure you learn how to manage your energy in a healthy way so you can effectively do your work without sacrificing your own well-being in the process.
HERE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE WAYS TO BALANCE AND PROTECT MY ENERGY:
1. Be intentional with your online time. Know that you don’t need to be on your computer or phone 24/7 in order to run a successful business. Instead of being busy just for the sake of being busy, prioritize what’s important. Then take time to unplug. This will make your work more efficient while also giving you space to rest, regenerate, and enjoy the alone time you absolutely need as an empath.
2. Surround yourself with positive people. Even though there are plenty of things you can do to shield yourself from negative energy, the truth is that as an empath, you will always feel what’s going on around you to some extent. Therefore, one of the easiest ways to stay high-vibe is to spend time with people who uplift and inspire you. This way, you won’t have to put as much effort into protecting yourself and can share and receive openly without taking on as many draining energies.
3. Use energy clearing techniques. For instance, you may want to call on Archangel Michael for protection, imagine white light clearing and shielding your aura, work with the gold and silver violet flame, or use an energy healing modality like reiki to restore your natural energetic balance. My personal favorite is Atlantean Healing, which is a high vibrational light healing modality formerly practiced by the priests and priestesses of ancient Atlantis.
Bonus tip: Spend time in nature every day if you can. Being outdoors is one of the fastest ways to clear and reconnect with your own energy, and it’s excellent for grounding, too. Which is so, so, so important for us highly sensitive spiritual beings, especially in business.
