Intuitives naturally process high levels of energy in the form of thoughts, feelings, and various stimuli. They step into a room and instantly gauge its frequency. Some places are almost unbearable for empaths because they pick up on everything, mostly unconsciously until they learn to notice the subtle cues they are receiving.
The best way for an intuitive person to maintain balance in their daily life is committing to self-care by knowing what you need to feel whole, happy, and balanced. This means creating a holistic lifestyle including your exercise regime, heathy eating, and getting enough sleep to feel bright-eyed, inspired, and productive.
Self-care for empaths also includes continuously clearing your energetic bodies through meditation and healing. As you become a master of your emotions, you realize what a gift it is to be able to feel so deeply. Throughout the day, it may be beneficial to step back and take a moment to close your eyes and tune out the world while you notice the breath. Consciously elongating the breath brings you back to inner stillness and peace. The main lesson for an empath is to practice maintaining the peace you feel inside no matter where you are or what’s going on.
Because empaths are constantly processing so much information on a subtle level, it can be overwhelming. There is a tendency to fall into depression or anxiety, which is why it’s so important to practice self-care. As you practice yogic breathing techniques, you become more adept at tuning into your heart. You can place your hand over your heart while you begin breathing deeply, encouraging the expansion of the rib cage and chest to maximize the flow of oxygen throughout your entire body. You can include visualization techniques, such as breathing in bright white or colored light to clear your energy body. With practice, you will be able to tune in within seconds. Then you will become more proficient at centering yourself in crowded or stressful environments.
