This weekend, I spent time away with a friend who I met four years ago. During this weekend, I realized how much I have changed. As an empath, I can feel what others feel and what they are thinking. During our time together, I was able to observed and become aware of her feelings, and my own feelings about how I relate to her now.
As I was in my friend’s energy field, I felt all the old feelings of wanting to control everyone and everything around me. What I feel the most in people’s field is fear. It is the most dominant feeling, and maybe it is the dominant feeling for all humans as I also feel fear myself.
During this weekend, I realized that I need better energetic, emotional, and physical boundaries with others. I ended our weekend early with my friend as I no longer could tolerate how she controls me and everything around her. The interesting thing is that she kept repeating how easy going she is and how flexible she is. In interacting with her, she is neither easy going nor reflexible as we did everything she wanted to do, and she directed me even when we walked while shopping or walking from the car.
As we parted ways early, I ended up going for a long walk in the beautiful outdoors, had the meal that I wanted to eat this weekend, and went to my favorite clothing store. I don’t make as much money as her, and my focus is no longer to make a lot of money, but to service others. Our paths are diverging now, because she is who I was four years ago.
When I return home, I plan to begin practicing how to separate my feelings from others, so they don’t affect me so much energetically or emotionally. I am sharing an article called, “Are Those Your Feelings?” This aritcle gives great tips and techniques on how best to do this. Good luck with your practice!
