As an empath, you may have felt, before anything bad happened, a sense of dis-ease. Before the big earthquake in Japan, I felt down and a sense of hopelessness I couldn’t place. I told my one friend a week ago, “Something big is about to happen, earth-wise. I don’t know what yet.” I’m an earth sign, and work closely with the earth, so I guess I picked up the feelings of the ground like I do people or animals.
How do you protect yourself from the pain? Send lots of love, prayers, and healing to Japan, but stay away from the news. If you are visual, don’t even think about looking at photos of devastation. As an empath, you can read into a photo and FEEL, and you don’t need to feel that much pain. It helps no one.
And no, I don’t believe Mother Earth is angry. I believe the earth is changing and shifting fast and furious like us. It’s a giant mirror for each other, so to speak. Sometimes change can look ugly like a homely adolescent that becomes a great beauty. Nurture yourself now with lots of self care and don’t feel the weight of the world.
Ironically, as I write this, I hear Josh Groban’s song, “Don’t Give up.” “Don’t give up. It’s just the weight of the world. When your heart’s heavy, I will it for you. Don’t give up. Because you are loved.”
A little nod from the Angels.
