  1. I have a number of different coping strategies I incorporate in my daily life as an Empath. !) I set strong boundaries for myself. I politely say NO to the things I want to say NO to. I refuse to let others sway me into doing their bidding. If I’m not “feeling it” I’m NOT doing it! if it doesn’t “feel good or right” I DO NOT get involved with it. 2) I have learned to listen to my inner guidance IMPLICITLY…if I get the urge to leave a situation, I leave, no regrets. If I get a bad sense about a person, I avoid them, if I get strong negative vibes about a public place, be it bar, restaurant or store I don’t enter them or I leave if I feel uncomfortable. 3) I meditate fairly often, not everyday but a few times a week when time permits. 4) I live in & enjoy my solitude. 5) I take daily salt baths for cleansing, I mix equal parts of Himalayan salt, Sea salt, Epsom salt & baking soda & soak for a minimum of a 1/2 hr. For those of you who shower…try bathing 2-3 times a week. 6) I smudge my home on a weekly basis with white sage & burn various scents & aromas of incense every other day in between. 7) I envision a protective white bubble surrounding me before I leave my home and I re-inforce said bubble often while I’m out & about. 8) I ask my Angels, Spirit Guides & Ascended Masters for protection also. I also practice what is known as pre-paving, I envision positive outcomes in my daily interactions and make sure that “all is clear” when I leave my home by looking behind me & say “all clear”, then to the left of me “all clear”, then ahead of me “all clear” then to the right of me “all clear”. 9) I carry a small pouch filled with 13 different protective crystals in my pocket wherever I go. I also place protective crystals around my home. 10) once a week I sprinkle regular table salt all around my home on my floors & carpets, leave it on while I go out to do errands and vacuum it up when I arrive home afterward. 11) I practice GRATITUDE!!!…on a constant daily basis!! 12) I smile alot to whomever I encounter in my daily travels. 13) I wear bold bright colours almost everyday, I wear tie-dye alot & wear reflective jewellery. I have learned to use my Empathic abilities to flourish & help others. If I get a particular feeling in my gut or feel my ears burning or hurting, I close my eyes & focus on who I am receiving these feelings from. Whomever I receive an image of in my mind, be it a friend or family member no matter who they are or where they are in the world, I contact them and ask them what the problem is. Every time whomever I contact with their “issue” is ALWAYS flabbergasted by my accuracy! They now have come to “expect” a phone call, text or email from me! I now enjoy being an Empath now that I have learned to harness my gift & use it for the right purposes.There are numerous authors out there who have written many books regarding being an Empath and how to flourish successfully with your gift. AMAZON sells a multitude of great self help books. I highly recommend “The Awakened Empath” by Luna & Sol from the LonerWolf Blogs. Well….I have prattled on long enough, I hope my tips & suggestions work for you as successfully as they have worked for me. Love, Light & Blessings to you my fellow Empaths, Highly Sensitives & Light-workers of a all decrees…Embrace your gift. (((HUGS))) Terri
