For some reason, the idea of being an Empath has become really popular on social media and within the inter-webs as a whole. But one thing that’s really not acknowledged out there is the fact that being an Empath actually really sucks.
If you happen to be a true-blue Empath (perhaps you’ve known all along that you are one without having to be told by everyone on the internet... or a meme); then you definitely know what I’m talking about.
I really feel as though the entire path of being an Empath & discovering those emotionally-charged spiritual gifts has been glamorized. Honestly though, receiving a live-wire of thoughts & emotions on a constant stream directly into your heart & mind can be truly overwhelming. It’s also messy, not so much fun, and can really play with your mind in a mental-health kind of way.
Spiritual Awakening is a mega-transcendent moment resulting in an altered state of perception or a sudden expansion or shift in consciousness. So basically, you wind up "levelling-up" any knowledge you possess about your true "inner self" as well as all that exists external to yourself (i.e. "the secrets of the Universe").
With a true Spiritual Awakening, you may immediately understand all of these concepts OR find yourself on the pathway to unlocking doorways that lead to more knowledge.
Either way - when going through a Spiritual Awakening, you oftentimes arrive on the "other end" of that journey with a general sense of peace & well-being in knowing the depths of your own soul PLUS your place in this world.
However, there is one thing nobody tells you about the whole "Spiritual Awakening" thing - and that is....
A few months ago I created a teensy bit of an uproar by posting a Hiatus Notice on the front page of my website.
At the time, I also let all clients local to the Collingwood, ON area & beyond know that I was no longer taking in-person one-to-one client sessions for the foreseeable future due to a dire need for time off.
Well it's now been approximately 2 months since I made this initial decision and there are more than a few things that have changed in my life.
For one - the time off has allowed me to branch out & throw more time into new creative projects...
One of which is going LIVE in just under 2 weeks on July 1st, 2019 - the Spirit Unplugged Podcast.
I'm sure you've heard of mental or emotional burn-out: Those moments when you're “up to here” with the many things going on in your life or people requiring your expertise or attention.
Sometimes there is a legitimate, clinical (medical) reason behind mental or emotional burnout (i.e. chemical or hormonal imbalances, mental health issues, chronic depression, etc.). Other times it's simply a matter of knowing when to take a “mental health day” from work, or “treating yourself” to something you would never normally do (*ahem* insert the A-Typical “You just need a Spa day!” references here).
The problem with spiritual burn-out is - it's not as cut and dry as other burn-outs can be.
When I'm reading, teaching, or explaining how my Psychic abilities work I often use the phrase "Tune In" or "Tuning In". Sometimes I will even say this without explaining the energetic nuances behind this spiritual terminology OR how exactly I do that.
