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.

Top 5 Things To Do When You Run Out of Energy

1. Play! Actually I am quite serious. As an entrepreneur I have a lot of ideas. I can also work enough to the point where I hit a brick wall and I find that my mind goes in the circles. At that point I’ve lost the enthusiasm and the energy to move forward. I find that if I take just 30 minutes or more a day and schedule that time to actually play that it can help me recover significantly. Then I have more energy than when I started the day.  I think we lost play when we were nudged by society or family to start to act like an adult, but I think it is something that shouldn’t be lost.  I think it is many of my clients’ missing key to happiness! There are psychological articles that back this up as well.  Playing actually helps wake up your system and gives you the energy and enthusiasm you need to keep going. It can also help with any thoughts in your head that may be slowing you down such as “life is work”, “life is not fun”, “I work all the time”, etc.

2. Affirmations.” I am enthusiastic about life and filled with energy and enthusiasm.” Say 3x out loud. Try other affirmations as well as doing a good chakra alignment and healing for yourself with the intention of increasing your energy and enthusiasm.

3. Visualize red and orange. The colors of the root and sacral chakras. By visualizing these colors often times you can get an energy boost and it may signal your spiritual healers to heal those areas for you as well. A good grounding can help clear any brain fog you may have when you use all of the four elements at the same time with the intention of grounding. Increased mental clarity can help you move forward in your day and feel better overall.

4. Exercise. Get the blood pumping. I found that a number of things that help circulation also help my mood. Also if you get some sun that’s going to help with vitamin D production which is also a mood booster.

5. Supplements. Make sure any supplements you take do not have adverse effects to any prescriptions by consulting your doctor first. I take a number of supplements to help me with energy and mood. Some of the ones that help with mood are 5-HTP, GABA, Acteyl L Carntine, L-Tyrosine, vitamin D, Maca root, Kava, omega 3 fatty acids and other brain boosting combinations. Some that are great for energy like B vitamins and Hawthorn Extract.  Try one at a time and go from there. Ask your local vitamin store what is best for you or do some research online based on what you’ve noticed about yourself.

Other tips:

  • Update your Feng Shui.  If you want to learn how, go to my more detailed blog here.  Sometimes when the energy isn’t quite right in our home we will know it energetically through the feeling of energetic blocks.  There can be multiple reasons why you feel fatigued, confused or blocked but if everything else is alright this is another option.
  • Do some empathic cleanup if you think you are clairsentient.  Follow the link for my article on this.
  • Clean the energy of your home using sage and sweetgrass.  My article on how to do this is here.
  • Use YouTube Videos around the home or near yourself to cleanse negative energy from the home and replace with positive energy.  My YouTube Channel with a number of options is here.

Need a reading to discover other solutions and if something underneath is really bothering you?  I do psychic mediumship readings most days of the week.  You can schedule an appointment same day or in advance.  Check out my readings page here.

Sea Salt Baths

Sea salt baths are excellent ways to cleanse negative energy out of your system including your etheric field and reseal it with positive energy.  As an empath I tend to take on a lot of energy from other people.  While energy healing certainly does help, a sea salt bath cleanses as well and is something everyone can do regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey.  Put about a handful of sea salt in your tub and soak in it for about an hour.  Use your judgement on how long to stay in the tub, if you are highly sensitive you will be able to tell or you will just know.  Once done, get out of the tub and rub apple cider vinegar all over yourself.  Then rub camomile tea all over next.  Take a shower to rinse off the vinegar and tea.  These last two steps additionally strip, cleanse and reseal the energy field around you.  I wouldn’t recommend just taking a sea salt bath without these additional steps.  After taking the bath you’ll notice that you feel much better and have more energy.  That is because you are carrying less negative energy around with you and your energy field is repaired.  Not only is this good for you physically and spiritually, but you’ll find that taking the extra time out for yourself can be a lovely break during the week that you look forward to.  Be sure to soak the vinegar bottle in the tub with you to keep it warm for when you get out of the bath.  Make it fun for yourself by adding rose petals, candles and fragrances to your bath time.

How to Cleanse your Crystals

It is very important to cleanse and energize your crystals regularly.  How often you need to cleanse your crystal depends on how often it is used.  If you meditate with your crystal you’ll notice that the vibration may not be as strong as it has been over time.  If you hold your crystal in your left hand, ask it if it is cleansed and energized, and it doesn’t vibrate, it’s probably time to cleanse that crystal.  One way to cleanse and energize is to put your crystals in the sun and moonlight for 24 hours (except amethyst, only use moonlight for amethyst).  This removes any lower energy and energizes the crystal.  Another method is to put your crystals in sea salt water from 4-24 hours depending on how much you’ve used your crystal.  You have to be careful with this method because there are certain crystals that you can’t put in water or they’ll disintegrate like selenite.  If you are unsure of your new crystals preferred cleansing method, you can always google “metaphysical” and the crystal’s common name.  You can also use any number of vibrational instruments such as tuning forks, singing bowls, bells and cymbals to cleanse your crystals.  Burning sage & sweetgrass and waving the smoke over your crystals is also recommended for removing negative energy and replacing it with positive.  Enjoy your new crystals!

How Can One Person Save the Earth?

Photo Source, Andrea Knight

First, you are not alone. We are all interconnected by the group consciousness and that includes with nature. We can all do something and collectively when we make the effort we are setting an example for others and it will catch on over time. Other people will look up to you and watch the decisions you make and will want to emulate this in their lives. However, if you want to take a more holistic, metaphysical approach to this subject, I recommend a good meditation that I have tried and have been asked to pass on to each of you. how can one person save the earth,how can one person save the earth,how can one person save the earth
Get into your meditative state and imagine you are surrounded by the Creator’s white light of love and protection. Expand that bubble to surround your home. Then expand it to surround your city, until it grows to surround your state. Eventually expand your white bubble to surround mother earth with positive white light. Imagine that the Creator is sending this light from above and see it completely surrounding the earth from space. Then imagine a green light coming down from Creator, surrounding the earth. Imagine the green light healing the land and the trees, transmuting or removing any pollution. Then imagine a blue light around earth. Imagine the blue light is cleaning up all the water, healing the sea creatures and removing pollution from the water and air. Lastly, imagine a pink light coming down and surrounding the earth. Imagine the pink light surrounding each of it’s inhabitants with love energy around the world. Imagine the pink light sending love to the elementals, the spirits, rocks, trees and surrounding nature. Imagine every person on every continent happy, wars ending, and everyone embracing and smiling. Continue to imagine earth surrounded in each of these lights and leave space, reentering the atmosphere, your home and eventually come back to yourself.

Why can’t God just heal the earth herself?

We have free will. If we want to use up the resources and pollute and not clean it up, we are free to do so. Angels, elementals, and the creator is not allowed to interfere with our free will.

What does this meditation do?

It does a number of things. It sets your intention that you want the earth, its inhabitants and nature saved. It tells the universe, which has infinite abundance, what you want by visualizing the healing occurring. Also, it asks the Creator, angels, elementals and other spirits to please help us and the visualization gives the request energy.

If you have been blessed with abundance, you can also help the planet and its inhabitants by buying more organic food, choosing environmentally kind electricity (wind, solar) and using environmentally safe chemicals. This will create a demand for these items, making them more available to other people and cheaper over time. If you want to feel better in your home and neighborhood, buy house plants and plant a tree. All of these actions create love energy in and around your home and helps the environment. Another thing I do is unplug anything I’m not using, like the stereo, can opener, toaster, and other kitchen appliances. You can’t unplug everything but you’d be surprised at how much energy you’d save with very little effort. Even though you may not be using that can opener, it still may be using something called “phantom energy” just by being plugged in. Appliances still drain energy when they are plugged in even though they are not being actively used.

When each of us does what we can, we can really make a difference in our world.

Remove Spiritual Attachments, How to Article

There a multiple ways to do this, but for someone not trained in healing you can buy a simple pink candle from Wal Mart or Target for around a buck with the virgin Mary on the front. I usually say an Our Father and a Hail Mary plus the prayer on the back of the candle then state my intention that I want whatever attachment in me or my family member to be taken away by Archangel Michael. Then I put a teaspoon of cinnamon in the pink candle, moving it away from the wink so the candle will burn, and light the wick. I then close with an Our Father and Hail Mary. If you say other prayers to your creator/source/God whatever you believe in and just use a pink candle with no image on the front, that may work too, although I haven’t tried that yet. I received this advice from Ann Simon, a wonderful medium and healer. If you want more advice, feel free to set up an appointment with me here: http://www.feathersinfinity.com.

Q: How do I clear my home of negative energy?

Protection Set

I use a mixture of Sage and Sweet grass to clear my home of negative energy and entities. You can buy these online, at some psychic fairs or at metaphysical shops. It’s mostly about intention and rituals help us state our intentions. Counterclockwise undoes while clockwise puts back in. Open your windows and go around your home in a counterclockwise path with your smoking sage wand and say the following prayer:

“Archangel Michael, I ask that you remove and banish all negative energies and spirits from our home with the energy of Divine Light and Love. Bless our home with your pure white light of love and protection.”

Make sure to get white sage on the walls, corners, in the middle of the room, and in closets. Anywhere and everywhere a spirit can potentially hide, including attics if you can get to yours. Wave the wand counterclockwise around doorways and windows. Tell them in a firm voice from the gut to leave. Once you have completed your counterclockwise circle around the home, open the front door and wave the wand towards it, telling them to leave. Put the sage wand out outside your door either by putting it in water or rubbing it out.

Then go back around your home in a clockwise fashion with the sweet grass. This replaces the energy that is now vacant with positive energy. After you are done you can rub your sweet grass outside your front door and close your windows. You may also use Tibetan singing bowls to restore positive energy in our home along with the sweet grass. Good luck!

How to See Your Aura

Photo Source: Daz71, “Aura”, https://flic.kr/p/93duU

One of the first things I wanted to do once I looked into metaphysics was to see my aura. I read about it in books and tried watching some YouTube videos on how to see mine. One of the first steps you must take to begin seeing anything spiritual is to pray about it, ask God to help you see clairvoyantly, so your healers and guides can help you develop your clairvoyance. Next you need to work on it regularly, practice not just makes perfect but also puts in the energy and action using Law of Attraction, essentially saying “I mean it” and I have an interest in this.

The most useful advice I was given was to hold your hand up to the wall but about a foot away from the wall. Look through or away from your hand and focus on the wall. Eventually you’ll see out of your peripheral vision a grey haze around your hand. Your aura actually has a lot of color, but this is how you’ll start to see it at first. Keep working on it, praying for it and eventually you’ll see colors. Try looking directly at your hand and unfocusing your eyes as well. I’ve been told that our peripheral vision is less damaged over time than our central vision and can see more of the light spectrum. One of the books I read said that looking in the mirror does not work in seeing your aura. That is absolutely NOT true. I’ve been able to see more of my aura in the mirror than in other ways and still see a lot in mirrors, particularly against a white wall with the lights on and in the dark.
