Having space to oneself is essential for all therapists, psychics and just about anyone devoted to helping others.
It is probably the most important consideration, because if you’re not in ownership of your own space and do not take good care of it – what kind of an example are you setting? If you regularly give your space away to others, are you really helping or are you in sacrifice? Sacrifice is when you are giving and giving and are not getting anything back in return.
Whether you are aware of energy or not, you set the tone or example by how you treat your own energy. That is what speaks louder than your words.
Do you have permission to have your own space? Or are you okay with your space being treated like a public space: the place for everyone to walk through with their figurative dirty boots as and whenever they please. It’s a question of what you feel you deserve.
Being an empath it can be far too easy to begin to take on all kinds of foreign energy because of a lack of boundaries against what you are and are not okay with. It can become too easy to start to heal everyone inside your energy field without even as much as a thought to yourself. A spiritual perfect picture says it is ‘saintly’ or ‘noble’ to fix and heal others all the time. Maybe so, but it is unhealthy and could result in illness.
Reclaiming your space means deciding to make your own energy the most important one in your Universe, making your own truth Senior. If your own truth has been invalidated many times before it may be hard for you to even consider that you may in fact have your own truth. Being out of touch with your own energy can show up as something like resistance to getting out of bed in the morning to something like depression.
If you are not running your own energy – aka not living your own truth – you won’t be feeling great. Your body only welcomes the energy of your own spirit and your own truth. Someone else’s truth in your space does not fit.
Afterall, aren’t we all spirit – whether in body or not. The hard part isn’t being psychic – it’s sorting out your own truth in the jungle of voices and truths at large. A clairvoyant reading and healing is a hello to you as a spirit in body. Once your spirit is validated in your body, you will have easier time of healing yourself.
There are some practices that I stick to these days in order to take better care of myself. These are the hard-earned boundaries I developed through direct experience.
However, you don’t have to be in the psychic profession to decide your space is important and valuable to you. There are many who are psychic and are unaware of their ability. You may be picking up on and processing someone else’s issues and not even realize it.
So how do you begin to own your space to yourself? You could start with grounded meditation. When you meditate you validate your spirit and by grounding your energy into the Earth you can release any information that does not belong to you. I run meditation classes on the phone and at my location here in Eastbourne, so why don’t you join me?
When you reclaim your space through energywork meditation, psychic tools and boundaries – you can regain your joy.
