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.
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.
I was visited by an elemental king of fire the other day. He’s been making himself known pretty prominently for the past couple days. So during my next reading I asked what he is responsible for or what he helps out with. I felt a warm sensation on my face and on my arms so through a series of questions I found out that they can warm an area or body part such as when we get upset, embarrassed or angry we’ll feel our face get warm or prickly (fire elementals specifically). I also asked if they’re responsible for creating many of the sensations throughout my body I’ve been experiencing since I took Reiki and I saw clairvoyantly that all the Elementals have something to do with the sensations we feel. When I asked to be cooler during a hot part of the day I first asked for water and that didn’t quite do it. Then I saw the word “air”, so I asked for air and then I cooled down. As the years have gone by I have clairvoyantly seen as well as intuitively received that some of these feelings are controlled by elementals and nature spirits.
Over the years I would ask about different sensations and the answers were consistently elementals or nature spirits rather than my angels. For a week or two after this meeting I wanted to know more about what Elementals do to help us out. After looking through some sources of information seems like they clean up a lot of negative energy in different areas on Earth. In a reading I asked why are they creating some of these unusual sensations such as prickling, warming, heaviness and I received that they wish to help out. One way they can help out is by allowing us to feel the blocks and imbalances that need to be healed by creating some of these sensations in our body and around us. Affirmations, meditation and energy healing such as theta, crystals and Reiki can remove those blocks and imbalances. Energetic blocks can be indicators of what beliefs you have about yourself and the world around you as well as the chakras/meridians/energy fields that need to be cleansed or healed. Know that this is only part of what they do to help us raise our vibration. Use it as an indication that something is out of balance and get your metaphysical tool belt out to clear some stuff out. As we heal, we raise our vibration.
Some items that fire elementals can help out with and given to me in a mediumship reading with a high level fire elemental:
Healing – one worked on my joints the other day, it felt great!
Teach or make us feel like going in another direction or to not do something
Remove negative energy & entities
Transmute energy (purple flame I was told was not fire elementals, that was connected to Christ energy)
They did want others to know that not all of them are evil, even though many evil characters on TV and movies are pictures associated with fire. Some fire elementals try to steer you in another direction and that may be done in less pleasant ways but not always for malevolent reasons. Their healing and grounding can be quite awesome and I would recommend including them not just earth in your grounding routine. They can also help give you energy and remove negative energy from your body/aura as well.
Fatigue – Wow, this can be multiple things. The simplest answer I can give you is clear the root chakra, or carry a red stone in your pocket. The root chakra seems to be one of the major energy boosting centers. Also imagine red energy in your legs down to your feet while exercising, I’ve noticed this gives me an energy boost. Fatigue could also be someone else’s energies stuck in your energy field. In this case say mentally this is not me and the energy will go away. If it is a block, do a clairsentient body scan and see where the energy is concentrated, then clear chakras and meridians on the spot as well as above and below. The other common reason is lack of enthusiasm, use affirmations for this (“I am enthusiastic about life”, “Love and Joy runs through my arteries and veins”) because sometimes we have to do things we aren’t always thrilled with.
Mental slowness, lack of mental clarity – First check both sides of your throat including the area where the spinal cord meets the skull. Also check chakras in the middle of your head, behind the nose and in the back of your mouth. Second, Ground! Do a great grounding including grounding the back chakras, each of your joints in arms, shoulders and legs. Grounding helps with mental clarity and focus when out of a reading.
Here is a summary of solutions to clear some of the discomfort, fatigue or blocks:
1. Appreciation – say out loud what you appreciate, even if it is materialistic, like “I appreciate my bed, I appreciate my TV, I appreciate the beach…”
2. Mediation with crystals – I highly recommend full chakra sets with grounding stones for your legs. I practice what I preach and sell full sets which include stones for your legs and feet (go here: www.ebay.com/usr/all1059). The additional leg stones can help with anxieties, stress and help you have a more clear flow of energy. I have seen no one else provide a full chakra set which includes feet and knee chakra stones. They really make a difference.
3. Affirmations – Louise Hay has a book, “How to heal your life” that gives you affirmations for the areas where you feel discomfort. Also there are many affirmations on the internet if you google “knee pain affirmation”.
4. Energy healing – Crystals, theta or Reiki as well as many other modalities can help you restore balance and peace.
When I ask what high level elemental beings do, often I am presented with a being that looks like a king, sultan or other royal being. So far I’ve seen Sultans and Kings representing high level fire beings.
I saw in my reading that elementals and nature spirits would like to be known for what they do to help. They help us throughout the day, either by being our guides through feelings as well as cleaning up the energy around us. An excellent way to feel better is to take a walk outside in nature and you’ll instantly realize how much better the energy is. The other thing I saw clairvoyantly in my reading clearly when I was asking about fire Elementals was lightning. After perusing some of the sources about Elementals I saw them mention lightning as well. I read that fire Elementals might be responsible for much of the energy around us including lightning. One particular source said that they may be responsible for the energy even within our atoms. They also may help with energizing your crystals and stones.
If you have fears concerning elementals and nature spirits due to fairy tales or movies as a child (many of us do), I recommend affirming to yourself that they are kind and always visualize them as such. If something feels wrong assume it is not them, ask and visualize your archangels removing the offending party or energy. If you need more proof that they are here to help go outside on a nice day and see how much better you feel being in nature. I have additional information on how to connect with and notice nature spirits / elements in other blogs on this site or you can sign up for a reading with me to find out more on my psychic mediumship page: www.feathersinfinity.com.
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!
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.
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.
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!

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.
