how to feel better, how to feel better, how to feel better
By Andrea Knight
Much of what we have learned from empaths or clairsentient people comes from other gurus and teachers. Here are a few misunderstood beliefs around what it means to be an empath that I have found independently in my experiences with some solutions to help you feel better now.
1. We absorb other people’s energy. I learned that this was not always true when doing my Dominion article, instead it may be more rare than you think. Instead, like an actor taking on a role, you may be a mimicking the energies of others, and all you have to say is “reverse”, visualizing all your energies, protectors and guides turning around in a circle to reverse out of this feeling. Ask them instead to “mimic” peace and feeling safe. I will also visualize an arrow going back in time to a point I was feeling at peace, like after a good meditation. In a few seconds I will be restored to that feeling. Much faster than meditations, energy healing sessions, saging and sweetgrass…you get the point. Can be done in seconds while you are anywhere. This solves the problem for me in most instances where I feel icky, off, not safe or brain fogged.
2. That it is actually only our spirit absorbing or mimicking others. Not always true and less often than you think. Instead what I have found is I am feeling my guides, angels and other spiritual helpers mimicking or absorbing the energies and entities. They are doing their part in protecting me and I am feeling what they are protecting me from. What I recommend here is in my “heal the healers” article, imagine your spiritual guides, healers, and other spiritual helpers getting cleansed when you heal yourself. You can just visualize this with all their chakras being cleared, aligned and their energies restored to brilliant colors. You may feel better faster than only working on yourself. Also this is another awesome way to elevate your psychic abilities to the next level as they help facilitate the psychic, mediumship and energy healing process. This method is helpful especially when you’ve done everything you possibly can on yourself but not feeling enough of a change to the positive. “Heal your healers.”
3. That everything we feel, mimic or absorb is from people. Nope. Sometimes you are feeling the environment, the rocks, trees, plants, air, as well as what people, animals and spirits have left behind energetically. You are potentially reading what is, what was and what may be in the future if you have that ability. Mentally note it, and then ask your spiritual entourage to “reverse” like in #1.
This concept of “reversing” out of feeling like others, the environment or spirits is a result of independent research and experience. Please do not copy without proper reference to author and links to this site.
It is possible to go to the grocery store, even Walmart with great psychic or energy healing abilities and feel at peace with no brain fog. Watch out for that article in the future but some of that advice is contained in the recommendations above.
He told me his name was “Thorn”. Cherubims have been appearing to me the past couple years as tall angels holding puppies. I didn’t know why until I did this reading and now it makes perfect sense. This is one of several on the angel rank series, links to the others are at the end of this article.
In a reading state I asked to connect to a Cherubim level angel that could speak to me clearly. They showed me a tall angel holding a puppy and told me his name was Thorn. He then showed me a picture of a baby, and we discussed a little bit that previous references to Cherubims were associated with cherubs or babies with wings. I asked if they liked this reference and imagery connected to their presence in events and he said they did.
Then I asked what he would like to tell us as advice first and he started with a visualization.
Thorn showed me a lot of people in the world, waiting or walking in lines. Crowds of people bumping into each other, getting irritated or angry with so many people around them. It reminded me of news stories I had seen of crowded Asian cities like Tokyo or Hong Kong.
The advice given to me is to find calm, to find your inner peace. He then showed me a remote place in the woods, his eyes lighting up, like this was a great place to be. Then I saw small colorful spiritual beings in between the tall pines, and he noted that some of these are in the light (morally good) and some are not. I saw Peter Pan, he’s playing soccer, and Thorn says to me to play, that play is good, Peter Pan here representing something I’ve been taught before. The lesson was that in order to bring joy in your life again, it helps to go back to those things that made you happy in childhood. When we are children we act more on feeling, intution and instinct, doing things we want to do as we are free of much of the restrictions and expectations brought in later in life. Things like free play and creativity that are suppressed as we age and our focus turns to being more “professional.”
I see the cabin surrounded by cedar and pines again next to a calm lake. “Peace and tranquility”, he says, “do you know why?” I see energy waves in the air, disrupting peoples thoughts, thought bubbles coming from peoples’ minds and being caught by someone else’s energy field. I experience brainfog when this is shown, then he says “too much in the ear”, almost like we are picking up on too many radio stations, connected to too many people around each other and its like too much thought energy affecting others when in close quarters. I have an article on how to find peace here if you can’t get away from people for a time, however the message here connects with what clairsentient people experience, to cleanse other’s energies when you can and protect yourself from them, be aware of the phenomenon, when you cannot get away. To know what to ask from the divine to make you feel better.
We have spiritual filters but angels can get overwhelmed, some of the thoughts are negative and make them vibrate or mimic in a certain way (sometimes angels can act as chameleons, vibrating to the environment or energy received), I saw hips and legs vibrating here. See my Dominion article here to counteract this. The “filtering” angel that protects us from this can get distracted and grow tired. I noticed this after some shopping trips or after a long day outside the home. I asked what do angels need when tired? I received the answer “to rest and to do nothing”. I also saw to visualize happy faces going to your surrounding angels and spiritual helpers. Include sending visuals of happiness, joy and rest energy (“Zzzz”) being sent to them from the divine. Go to my healing the healers article here for more on this subject. The other visualization I will do is similar to trading players on the soccer field, exchange the angels that are tired with ones that are “ready to go” and have energy.
What are some things that Cherubims can do?
I saw Thorn pick up a box, move it, and put it down. I saw him pick up another box, and do the same until he has a row of boxes in a semi-circle in front of him. They put children on them, and started waving his hands like a conductor in front of the children. The children didn’t do anything, sometimes paying attention and sometimes distracted by something else. I asked what he wanted the children to do and he told me he wanted them to sing. Someone else comes in with a puppet show behind the children and start playing with the puppets. The children are bored and he is trying to get them to sing, but they won’t sing, but they seem more interested in the puppet show being played then to do what Thorn wants. Thorn now picks up and uses a reindeer puppet and starts waving it in front of the kids. The kids get really happy and start singing! Thorn then explains they didn’t want to do what he wanted them to do, but they did want to watch the puppet show, so he integrated what they wanted to do with what he wanted them to do.
Cherubims are excellent motivators. Motivation may be a hard thing, he points to himself and he says “I know how to do it”, and now the children are singing with him using the puppets. The message here being he knows what the children (us) want and can combine that with what the divine wants us to do to motivate or even excite in some cases. He shows me a visual of him putting fire underneath someone’s bottom, to get them moving. Everyone on the Cherubim level knows how to do this. We can call them if we need help with motivation, both positive and fear based motivation, and they know which one to use.
I’ve been doing readings for years, and know some of the questions my clients have asked is not always in line with another’s free will. So I asked what exceptions there may be, everyone has their own motivations and may contradict your own, if it is against someone’s free will do they help? Thorn told me that they know when it is selfish or self motivated, they know “the line” when it is too much against their free will. They will filter out what is not ok for someone else as they know what is alright or not. So if you are asking for something that affects another and don’t know if it is alright, go through Cherubims as they can make that assessment and protect both sides from negative consequences.
Other summarized points about Cherubim level angels:
They are excellent and clear at relaying guidance from your guides on multiple levels
They are healers as well
They are not really the best future tellers, get future predictions from another source
They like Christmas (I kept seeing Christmas themes throughout the reading). The reason being that people pray more, people talk to God more, they give to others more, more love in the air, more pretty things to look at which can uplift mood, feelings, thoughts and therefore vibrations. Overall better energy around he told me this is a good environment where they can step in more as people ask for what they want in such uplifting, warm, giving, loving energy.
I suspect Cherubims can do much more than this, however this reading took a couple hours to relay to my readers, so there is more to discover in time. Since this reading and while composing this blog, I have noticed at least 2 events where men were holding puppies, one going into Target while shopping, the other around my home. This was unusual and therefore statistically significant, a sign. Angels will send you messages to validate what you are receiving; ask, be open, and thank them when received to receive more.
If you were wondering why they chose puppies, I am have a B.S. in Zoology, so when I am stressed or need a mental break I will watch YouTube videos of baby animals to lift me up. Spirit will often bring me animals such as cats, dogs, birds, feathers as messages and validation. I will feel like going outside for some reason, and will run across an angelic message like feathers, cats, dogs, rainbows, unicorns (see thrones article), or coins along the way. While they come to me as tall angels with puppies they may come to you in a different way, be open to how they want to represent themselves to you.
Throne level angels appear to me clairvoyantly as angels with unicorns. Ever since seeing my first one I will notice unicorns in stores and on TV. They’ve chosen this as a sign to me that it is a Throne angel helping me out or stopping by, although it is possible they may come to you in a different form.
Thrones are excellent healers, particularly of fears and psychic attacks. When I’m in the gym I find that they are extremely effective in removing the negative energy left by others that may make me anxious.
They help by changing my perspective, by showing me clairvoyantly clear meadows with clear skies, essentially giving me an easy visualization to make everything feel calmer, more safe. They do the healing and protection necessary to make that happen without me having to figure out what it is to cure it myself. It is like instant healing and peace. An earlier article that I did with a Principality showed me that rising in the angelic ranks can mean multiple things, one of which was being able to handle more divine energy.
For this particular article I asked to connect to the Throne level angel that can give me more detail and insight on how Thrones help us and what they are capable of doing. I’m sure we only scratched the surface but here are a few of the things that were revealed to me during my session:
Messengers: I saw an image of a Throne riding a unicorn down an area where there were a number of cow bells hanging from red ribbons. The message was that Thrones are great beings who can call to them other beings such as different ranking angels and God. They send out messages to others to bring them in or call them to duty. I also saw a Throne singing at the top of a mountain to accomplish the same task.
They showed me that they and other angels sometimes wait a while before cleansing or healing themselves of others’s energies including the environment. They can absorb the negative energies of others or mimic it. Empaths or healers can pick up on that, but think that they are the ones that are absorbing the energy. In fact you are feeling your healers and protectors and once you visualize them clean you feel better faster than healing yourself. This concept and the Dominion angel article here was the background for this article on “healing the healers“. They are encouraged to toughen it out, to keep faith in God that everything will be sorted out and to work things out energetically for themselves. However, since they don’t have a physical body they don’t have the fears pop up as we do of sickness, fatigue, uncontrollable psychic attacks and death so if this energy bothers you and healing yourself does not correct the problem I recommend “healing the healers“.
They are a true holistic healer: they can heal the mental, physical and spiritual issues you may have, all levels.
I saw an image of a Throne level angel flying towards the sun, they show me Him testing the sun and seeing if it is the right temperature, if not they can help out energetically. I don’t completely understand how they do this, but rather than leaving it out I thought I would share the visualization anyway for those that might receive insight later on in their meditations and readings.
Thrones can help you to makemoney (as can trees, archangels, God and ascended masters like Jesus) but also remind you to find balance, in other words take time to appreciate what you have and already own, play, love, be social and rest.
They help people with inspiration and motivation. They can help you get moving and accomplish that task. They are not the only ones however, God, Buddha, Ganesh and others can help with this as well.
They encourage hugging, they can give you the feeling of needing a hug or relieve you of the feeling of needing a hug. Hugs can calm people, and also calms the chakras.
They don’t experience fear, they explained this was because they are connected to the divine which gives them “unlimited power”. I think it is also because they understand and “see” more than we do, they know what the real issue is (its energy not a dangerous entity) and how to fix it.
You meditated, you did affirmations, you even put shields up like you are the starship Enterprise, but you still feel “off”, gunky or fatigued.
Heal the Healers
A couple things can be happening here. Many times when you’ve done all the work you can do by asking for shielding and protection, then you may be missing a piece of the puzzle that I have found. Cleanse and heal your angels, guides and protectors around you, and you in turn feel better.
For me, when I’ve done everything I can do including cleansing my environmental energy, feng shui/chi adjustments, what I am feeling is my guardians, healers and guides! The ones protecting and healing me are usually doing one or two things:
Absorbing it before it comes to me (but I feel them so I still feel it)
Mimicing how another person or the environment feels so I can read them/it.
During a reading for a new blog with a Throne level angel it made more sense as to why. They showed me that sometimes they will continue to “take the burden” and not heal themselves after the process, they just continue to carry the energy around them. As you become more sensitive to the beings and energies around you, you may start feeling the environment and angels as well as other beings around you more. During a Dominion blog reading I realize that sometimes my energies and entities that help with readings mimic the person or environment and I would just tell them to “reverse” and they would go back to feeling at peace.
What you do is visualize God cleansing and healing your guardians, healers and guides around you, all planes. Think in 3D, there are some right, left, front, back, top and bottom. I visualize them going through a “holy car wash”, with big brushes sweeping through them and bubbles all around to get them spit spot clean! If some are especially bad they may be low on energy so what I will do is imagine them switching out like you would switch out players in a soccer game. A new one would come down and they would go up into the white light to be cleansed, re-energized and to rest. Lastly, imagine their chakras healed and aligned just as you may do for yourself.
If some are difficult to clean I then visualize zooming out at a high level, until they are small and I visualize God transforming all of them into brilliant white light. Visualizing the problem “small” takes away some of the beliefs and doubts that this is hard and detailed work. It reinforces that this is easy for God to do as He controls so much more than one spirit. Visualize them getting a healing every once and a while, particularly if you are feeling “gunky”.
The day before yesterday I was laying in bed and clairaudiently received the word “Dominion”. An unusual word for me to receive I knew what they meant, it was time for me to add another article on the different types of angels. I had previously done an article on Principalities so this should be the second in the series. Click on the links below to get to the other articles.
I asked to be connected to the Dominion ranked angel who would like to give me information on those on their level. I received an Angelic being who’s wing feathers looked indigo, blue and green. Rather than being like the usual wings we are used to seeing with a base of the wing attached to the back, these wings looked like individual large feathers connected to the back of the angel directly in a V shape. Looking closer into one of the feathers it looked like they had a peacock like eye at the base, then blue and green barbs the rest of the way, all clouded in an indigo hue. I also noted that some of them had hands coming from each side of their head, I think to represent being able to work with the thoughts of others. A couple times during the reading I did see the angel riding a horse, this is similar to when I see Thrones who usually I see riding a unicorn. I saw the angel riding the horse and I saw a hanging row of bells (looked like a cow bell with curved edges) danging from ribbon as they rode by them. She told me her name was Arele.
In one of the visuals they showed me a golden path, and someone sprinkling gold dust along the path, calling these “breadcrumbs”. She said to “follow me” and explained to me that Dominions were adept at influencing other’s behavior.
Dominions working on a “subatomic”level
One unique thing that Arele (“Air-e-el-ah”) showed me as a skill that they had was to be able to influence others in what they do by working at a level that seemed subatomic. How I would describe it is if a spiritual being had atoms and within them subatomic particles, as you zoomed in microscopically then you would see what looked with blue (or other colored) energy strands like lightning. With this ability they are able to influence others whether they are spiritual or in physical form to do, think or feel one way or another.
After asking for Arele to show me this concept of being able to tell my own energies to act or feel a certain way, I was able to ask my energies to restore calm more quickly than before. Our energies and the entities that are around us (angels, nature spirits, elementals, other energies, etc) can influence how we feel and we are sometimes feeling them. These beings allow us to read the environment and others by “mimicing them” not always “absorbing them”. I received this concept before, that we are not always absorbing, we are mimicing and that can be turned off just as quickly as it is turned on without returning energies to where they came from. So now I ask my energies to “reverse” or to go back to feeling peaceful when they are feeling out of sorts, whether because they are telling me my chakras are out of alignment, there is negative energy in the environment or because they are allowing me to “read” others by feeling like them. I’ll tell them to instead act like they are at peace, feeling warm and comfortable and to not mimic the feelings of others. This has helped me restore peace quickly without a lengthy healing process or meditation.
Expanding and Contracting Energy
When I asked in general how else did Dominions help I was shown a lake and some trees. Then I saw a visual of them zooming down to the bottom of the lake and it look like energy a cluster of that was blue. When I asked what they did with this energy I received they “restore the energy”. When I asked what this meant the concept around it seemed to be to give energy to the environment by expanding, to make it feel more excited, to be more energetic. They explained they don’t create life, rather help with “giving energy” to environments or beings. After asking a few more questions I received they can do the reverse by condensing energy. When I ask why the would do this, I received to provide balanceby making things less energetic, as in less high vibrational, beings can feel less hyper or anxious (I received this in feelings, concepts as well as visuals). This brings a feeling and state of peace.
The concept reminded me of my “Finding Peace” and grounding articles. When I go up to do a mediumship reading I can be high vibrational. To be in that state for awhile, especially in really high vibrational readings, can feel overwhelmingly high, sometimes like being stretched. It can feel good to switch from my reading and healing modes to a more grounded mode. In a very calm “do nothing state” you can feel a different kind of peace where you don’t feel like you are rushing and needing to do something all the time. When thinking about it this way it does make sense, that sometimes you would want more energy for things like exercise and sometimes you would want to relax, chill. It’s like having expresso in the morning to get going that day and then chamomile tea at night to relax. In similar ways, Dominions can expand or condense energy to achieve different states and feelings on an energetic level.
Some other ways Dominions can help:
I was told they were great healers. One of the many things they showed me is they could clear my energetic blocks very quickly without a formal meditation, just wherever I was at the time.
I asked if you would call on a Dominion for protection as well, and I received that you wouldn’t as much call them for protection, but more to call on them for healing. I want to note that sometimes when we feel like we need protection I find what I am really needing is a good healing and chakra alignment. Once the healing is done I feel calmer and the thoughts or energies that were bothering go away.
They restore order. Sometimes when my energies feel out of sorts or I have a client, friend or family member going through a difficult time, my energies feel out of sorts. When that happens either my thoughts may be all over the place, I can’t concentrate or focus or some other issue. They can help with the energies bothering you and restore peace. When they were illustrating how they restore order they showed me a forest with little beings inside it. They told me sometimes they have a mind of their own and can be “impossible to control”. It was explained to me that Dominions know how to influence these “beings”. They showed me the Dominion going to an alchemy table and coming up with “potions” to get them to “follow her”. Obviously these just are illustrations, but they explain that Dominions know of ways to influence others through thoughts, feelings and energies.
Dominions can transmute negative energy. They showed me Dominions gathering up the negative energy, dumping it in another area and then transmuting it into something more neutral or positive. When I ask what they turn the energy into I was told “marshmallows” which I found humorous but it kind of made sense. Sometimes after a reading I will feel what feels like a neutral energy kind of stuck in my energy field, particularly around my ears, jaw, throat, heart and lower chakras. These clusters of energy, which don’t really feel as positive or negative is usually cleared up during a healing visualization, grounding or meditation. I was told that a lot of the energy from clients and those they are asking about become transmuted before they get to me or when they do get to me, but when she said “marshmallows” it did remind me of this “gooey” neutral feeling energy I’ll feel after a reading.
When I asked how they get to their rank I was told experience. Other ranks of angels can do similar tasks but the level seems to be earned with the amount of experience over time. Look to my Principalities article below for more information on how angels can earn their levels.
They like to stay at a high vibration and do not like to go to a lower vibration. They showed me visually like a white light (high vibrational light) entering a space of negative energy and the white light seemed to push away and break up the negative energy, pictured in this visualization as red, grey and black energy. They explained to me the energy was broken up and dissolved like debris.
I asked how they are able to make me feel at peace. It was explained to me multiple types of angels, not just Dominions, can make someone feel at peace with a thought. I was showed a waveform, an oscillation, but the peaks and troughs were low, close to center and not as extreme. With the combination of thought and feeling they are able to send this feeling of peace to others. I asked if it came from their heart chakra and I received a no, it doesn’t come from the heart although it may be sent to someone else’s heart chakra.
One symbol shown to me to represent Dominions was a rainbow with a heart placed right over the blue and indigo stripes.
I was doing some research on each of the levels of angels from beginning level Angel to Seraphim. I didn’t know much about the Principalities, Virtues and Powers so I decided to connect to each one and see how they could help us. When I asked to connect to a Principality I was presented with an angel who had black hair, wearing a crown with blue and green colors all around her. Her name was Ariel. Here are a few things that Ariel was able to relay to me that are some things that Principality level angels are responsible for and can help us with:
I asked her what distinguished each of the levels of angels up to Seraphim. She showed me a gradient and it’s not just based off of experience but also connected to the intensity of the energy they have access to. When I asked how they receive more powerful energy she showed me a ring opening between the heart chakra and solar plexus and told me that this expansion and the receiving of more powerful energy happens when they feel safe enough to accept it. She told me that they are put more at risk and they need to know how to deal with it effectively.
Ariel showed me that when she takes on some negative energy she allows the energy to run through her and out through the bottom of her being. Some of it gets transmuted to more neutral or positive energy and some of it just becomes released. When she showed me this and I saw that some of it was not a hundred percent transmuted into positive energy she told me that sometimes you have to understand that other people/beings can take care of themselves and sometimes it can be a learning experience for them on how to deal with different energies. She told me that when she encounters the negative energy that she doesn’t brace herself, shes doesn’t hold the energy in or get scared they just know to release it. She told me that humans bracing themselves when encountering energy that is uncomfortable or negative is natural but Principalities have learned to not brace themselves, hold on to it but rather let it go.
She showed me a visual of shaking dice and she told me that Principalities aren’t afraid of random chance and risk, she told me that they know that God has them and that they can get themselves out of whatever they are in. She tells me that they learned how not to be scared.
When I asked what some of the responsibilities of a Principality may be Ariel told me that they are responsible for healing, both on the physical level as well as the energetic, as well as they can send humans and other beings warm love energy to help them feel calm and at peace. They can help with psychic readings and deliver messages to humans and other beings. They can take on the role of a human for a time (or other being) and affect our lives on the physical level. They can also defend and protect others. When I saw that they protect others she presented a visual of a fiery sword.
I should note that there is a lot of truth in what she was showing me. I know that for a lot of us when we encounter energy that does not feel like ours we kind of stiffen up and it feels like it is stuck in one area after picking it up until we remove it through visualization or healing. However I’ve also been in a state where I wasn’t thinking about the energies of others like walking through the mall and when doing this where you’re not concentrating on someone else’s energy, you can pass through a lot of people’s auras without picking anything up. It seems like their energy field just goes right through yours without you feeling it or absorbing it.
I should also note here that a lot of the thick energy that you may feel in stores are often connected to the products that are on sale. There are forces and beings that work towards influencing us to buy things, so it helps to ask your energies, healers and protectors to not feel or let in those beings while at a store (combined with being grounded). Since doing this the facial and brain fog for me has lifted when shopping and I have mental clarity again.
I was able to do a reading with a Power as well and hope to have a collection of blogs on each level. Need a reading yourself or curious about your angels? Check out my reading page and schedule a reading with me today. I offer same day and scheduled readings.
