As a young child, it came naturally to befriend a sad, crying or bullied child. I could never understand why it seemed to bring joy for some children to chide or torment others for their pleasure. After soothing my new friends, I would come away sad and confused when others turned their teasing toward me after I helped someone. Although I thought I was showing kindness toward others, I wondered why my parents, siblings and schoolmates seemed annoyed with me. Didn’t I learn on Sunday mornings to ‘do unto others’? My heart always seemed heavy after helping my new friends however, it never stopped me. Something always encouraged me to be kind to others in need. And my sadness and loneliness continued.
As the years rolled on and my heart grew heavier, some people called it depression. Then I was blessed to meet a friend who asked how long I had known I was an empath. Excuse me? A what? Not familiar with this word, she began to explain. While I had been treated for depression for years, what she believed I needed was to learn how to transmute the negative energy of others that I had been gathering for decades. While trying to soothe their pain and sadness, I had been taking it into myself thereby adding to my own negative energy. In other words… according to my doctors… depression. Good for their bank accounts, back for my well-being.
I wonder why, with thousands (if not millions) of empaths in the world it is not common knowledge that transmutation is available to us. Why do we, as empaths, hide from the energy in public during such an important Spiritual time? THIS is the time when all hands on deck are needed! Instead of crying, feeling sorry for ourselves and staying out of large crowds because of the huge amounts of energy, we could learn to transmute the negative energy and go among the population to be of service where it is needed. But, only if someone reaches out for it. How difficult is it to hold out a hand? Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I wonder why or when we’ll finally realize we can actual discern what energy belongs to others and what belongs to us. Once we transmute the negative energy by releasing it to the Divine Mother, we will know what is truly ours to heal. For after-all, aren’t we here in this dimension to live the Christ within? To rejoin with our Creator? I know I can only do this when I heal what I have created and allowed. As an empath, I wish to be a living example of kindness and love.
I wonder … Do you?
