One of the hardest things of being very sensitive is that you tend to pick up on other people’s emotions. And especially when a lot is in motion for everyone, such as right now, it can be difficult to stay focused and be clear on what is yours and what is someone else’s.
Today I can personally feel that a lot is going on around me. And especially with some people that are close to my heart. The closer a relationship is, the harder it generally is to keep their emotions and feelings out of your energy field. Because you are so aligned and in tune with loved ones, whether that be a romantic relationship, your family members or dear friends, it is simply more difficult to filter it out. And that’s what is bothering me today.
Setting your boundaries and keeping your aura clear is something that requires continuous attention. It’s not something you can do for the rest of the week and be done with. Unfortunately.
Sometimes it seems very desirable to not feel so much and ‘simply’ go about your day. It can be tempting to numb yourself and your emotions. But I know I would miss the opportunity to feel the flow of the Universe and really be in tune with what is going on around me when I would not have that extra sense to tap in to.
So how can you best deal with these days? And when can you most expect them?
I know for myself that there are few circumstances that make it harder for me to manage my boundaries:
- When I am tired.
- When life seems to be an emotional rollercoaster. This can vary from being in love to letting go of something or someone.
- When I am going through major changes.
- When I am in need of food.
- When I am stepping out of my comfort zone, which as an entrepreneur is quite often….
Hmmm, when I look back at this list and how my life plays out lately, it seems that I’m regularly in a situation where I need to pay extra attention to setting my boundaries. The good news is, it really works and makes a huge difference when you do it. The bad news is that when you don’t, you really feel it and it will deplete you even further (making it harder to set boundaries again etc.).
When you are experiencing one of the situations above and you ‘feel too much’ just ask yourself whether these are truly your emotions that you are feeling. Or that they possibly belong to someone else.
When you find it hard to determine this you may want to ground yourself. And from this centered place ask yourself the question again. “Are these emotions and feelings mine?”. If they are, you can deal with it. If they are not yours, you want to clear your energy field immediately. There is no point in carrying around someone else’s emotions, frustration and pain! Just your own is plenty usually 🙂
