Signs You’re an Empath/Intuitive

Here are some signs you are an empath/intuitive:

  • You feel the emotions of others.
    When you’re with someone, even a perfect stranger, you know how they’re feeling even before they say a word. This means that you may feel sad, panicked, excited, etc. for absolutely no reason at all.  You may notice this more strongly with some people than with others.
  • You can feel the physical aches and pains of others.
    You may notice a soreness or pain without having any reason for feeling it- then you hear a close friend is suffering from the same discomfort.  
  • Strangers open up to you about their lives.  Often with far more detail than you bargained for and within moments of meeting you.
  • You are the go-to person for advice and emotional support in every friend group. You often wonder how that happened.
  • You feel overwhelmed or exhausted from being in large groups of people. Being around a hoard of people experiencing a wide range of emotions in a confined space quickly produces sensory overload.  Maybe you routinely avoid or dread shopping on the weekend or before a holiday.  Alternatively, being at a live performance will create a positive contact high like none other. All of that intense excitement and anticipation can be wonderful!
  • You need your alone time, desperately. Feeling or being aware of the emotions and pains of others is draining, so you need to spend time alone to refuel.  The need for self-care and down-time is greater than for most people, even for extroverted empaths.
  • You are easily moved to tears, even by fictional tv, books, or movies. Since your ability to relate to people is so strong, it’s easy to get sucked in to the emotionally charged situations of fictional characters. Even those on commercials. Raise your hand if you cry easily at commercials, I see you.
  • You are easily overstimulated by multiple sources of information, sound, lights, etc. You may have noticed that you are more bothered by such things than others. You can chalk this up to being highly sensitive.
  • You tend to want to retreat rather than expose yourself to the onslaught of emotions in the public. You have a core group of safe friends and limit contact with others who have “loud” or intense emotions.
  • You know what someone is about to tell you before they say it. Being tuned in to emotions means you are also likely tuned in to thoughts people are formulating, as they are the dominant thoughts of the moment. You’re not weird, you’re empathic/intuitive.
  • You call people and they say “I was just thinking about you.” Thoughts are energy, and energy isn’t limited by distance. See above.
  • You may refer to yourself as clumsy. This is common enough that I’m including it here. Often out of self-protection, you may spend much of your time un-grounded, or somewhat disconnected to your body. This limits your ability to relate well to the physical world around you, which leads to tripping and bumping into things.  The bruises on me recognize and honor the bruises on you. 

So now that you know you’re an empath/intuitive, (you see now how those words describe the same characteristics, right?) what are you going to do?  This is where many people will begin to tell you ways to protect yourself by erecting a virtual wall, creating a bubble, or setting up other barriers to keep the emotions of others at bay. Well, I’m not going to tell you any of that. I’m going to tell you it’s a super power!

A Super Power?

Here at the Divine Energy Collaborative, we know that feeling like you need to protect yourself comes from a place of fear, and that doesn’t give you power, it takes it away. Blocking yourself off may keep you from feeling other people’s stuff, but it also isolates you and limits your ability to feel all of the wonderful emotions as well. Our perspective is that by opening yourself up to the never-ending flow of divine love and light, you remain fully filled to overflowing. With love and light flowing freely out from you, it’s impossible for any negative emotions to stick to you or cause discomfort, and any who need love will find it without taking anything from you. 

We’re all connected, and these connections to each other are vital, now more than ever.  Instead of closing yourself off in fear of how the intense outside emotions will impact you, try opening yourself up to divine love and letting it overflow.  In this way you can walk in confidence and ease and never worry about whether your “shield” is strong enough. Love conquers all.

Once you are filled to overflowing with divine love, it then benefits everyone you come in contact with, and even those you never see. In this way, you can make a positive impact on the world, everyday. I definitely classify this is a super power!!

Here is a list about how to have more ease as an empath/intuitive that you might want to share with those you love.

Light Connection

Light Connection

Light of the Divine with the Grace of Love

Imagine your life, MAGNIFIED!

What would your life look like if you had nothing holding you back? How would you walk through your day differently if everything you wished for was unfolding before your eyes?  This can be true if you are willing to release whatever no longer serves you and let Light Connection™ do the rest.

This new form of  healing works to clear, balance and align your energy body with your physical body. It delivers precisely what you need so you may achieve accelerated success in any area of your life that you desire.

Light Connection™ is a healing modality transmitted directly to Amy Antonellis, Andrea Kukulka and Kristi Johnston on March 2, 2015 from a collective of Light Beings known to them as Great Spirit.  It is offered not through the practitioners, but into the space they create and maintain for pure Light Energy to enter and produce change within the soul of the receiver.

Clients have described feeling light, calm, clear, focused, and ready for what lies ahead. The energy is specific to this moment in your life, so as your life changes, so will future experiences with Light Connection™ . This is the kind of self-care and emotional healing that makes a lasting difference.

It’s time to heal yourself at the soul level!

Available in two forms: Light Connection Immersion and Light Connection Healing.

Light Connection Immersion pulls in life-changing energy so big, it takes 2 practitioners to sustain the vortex for a single individual’s treatment. You will experience the benefits of expanded growth from this session for a minimum of 3 months! Make plans before your appointment for your life to move at an accelerated pace towards your intended goal.

How to prepare for your Light Connection Immersion

Please note!! Light Connection™ will magnify whatever energy you have been emitting and continue to emit. Be mindful of where you focus your attention!  

Light Connection Immersion, 2 pracitioners: *$220 
*Approximately 45-55 min.

Light Connection Healing

This supercharged healing is performed with one practitioner and their energy partner in spirit to create and maintain the vortex of Source energy.

This will essentially burn away your subconscious resistance to change. The focus with Light Connection Healing is in replacing fear with empowerment and allowing you to clearly see your path forward.

If you’re not quite ready for the magnitude of changes that Light Connection Immersion will bring, but you’d still like to accelerate your growth and level up your life, then Light Connection Healing is for you.

Light Connection Healing: One practitioner $150, Approximately 45 minutes.

Healer Heal Thyself

Healer, Heal Thyself

IMAGE POSTED ON UPDATED ON
Many of us have heard this phrase, but how often do we actually listen? In today’s world of “there is so much to do” how many of you actually take the time to sink down into your own body, into your own consciousness, and just listen? I bet it’s been a long time huh?  How many practitioners out there rave about meditation and connection and source and unplugging and yet run around in their day-to-day without taking a minute to feed their own soul or remember their own connections? Sometimes it’s difficult to practice what you preach.
Today I have a call to action for those of you who are looking to put yourself first, for those of you who are looking to recharge.  I’m putting together a challenge.  This challenge consists of taking one minute to yourself every single day, a single minute.  Yes, simply one.  Sometimes it’s hard to kick old habits [giving, giving, giving and never replenishing].  😉 The challenge is to take a minute for yourself every single day and then share in this community what exactly it is that you did for yourself.  Did you sit with your eyes closed and your heart open? Did you simply listen to your favorite song? Did you hit pause? What did you do to refocus and re-center just for a single minute.  Do we want you to take more time for yourself overall? Absolutely! But for now, let’s just try this. Give me a minute, and I’ll give you the charge that you’re looking for.

hourglass usurnsonline.com 1

As healers, much of your focus is on the outside, on the rest of the community, and you neglect yourself.  Today, I ask that you reclaim your own body and your own power and dedicate true self love for simply a minute.  Every minute will look different, but I promise you, at the end of 30 days (yes, 30), you will find more self-love than ever before AND you won’t feel guilty for taking a 30 minute “escape.”  Put away the guilt and start replenishing the soul.  It all starts with baby steps.  We will have a 30 minute celebration at the Center at the end of the month.  I look forward to seeing you all there! Stay tuned for details!
With light,
Amy

Too Late to go Back To Sleep

“Too late to go back to sleep…”

POSTED ON  

I love theater and this is a quote from “Defying Gravity”, a song from the musical Wicked. I admit, somewhat sheepishly, that until now I didn’t really know what it meant in the context of the song. Recently the full intent of it hit me like a ton of brick. I had just received a message from spirit that basically pushed me out of the proverbial (cozy and warm) nest and the realization that once awakened to the full enormity of All that is, it is impossible “to go back to sleep”. How I processed that went something like : “wow, that was a lot of intense information, all I really want to do is crawl in a corner and forget about it for a while, maybe it won’t seem so challenging after a bit of time away from it.” Pause for thinking and a little hyperventilating, then “oh, that was the message. There is no more time, the time is now and I have to act. Shoot! Can’t I just have a little more time pretending I don’t know it? No? Oh blast.” Then the song came into my head and a light bulb went on.  That’s what the song meant! Once youknow, you can’t pretend that you don’t know. You can’t “go back to sleep.” You have to move forward and put fear, doubt and second-guessing aside.

The-day-has-begun
The-day-has-begun

Are you in that place where youknow but you are still letting apprehension or self-doubt prevent you from taking the next step? Are you pretending that you don’t know and staying in your cozy corner? We understand! That’s what we are here for at the Center for Holistic Healing and Art, to support you in that scary unknown where you step out of your comfort zone and into the Light of endless possibility!! We have many opportunities for you to explore the amazing world beyond our 5 senses. If you need information on something we’re not offering- let us know right here on the blog. We love input!

Feeling like you might be ready to immerse yourself in this kind of learning? We have a week-long retreat in paradise March of 2016 to do just that. There is still time to register and get a $100 discount here: http://bit.ly/1MEHpyL   Find out more info here.

How the Lawyer Met the Medium, an Unlikely Love Story

How the Lawyer Met the Medium, an Unlikely Love Story

POSTED ON  

I will never forget the moment I met Andrea Kukulka.  We actually met at the Women’s Business Network.  One Tuesday morning back in early 2012, I was standing at the resource table at WBN when Andrea came up to me.  The second I looked up and saw Andrea I had the most intense feeling of Déjà vu.  The room around her started to move and I felt like I was going to faint.  She put her hand out, introduced herself, and told me that she was a medium.

“A medium?!” I thought to myself, I really was going to faint.  I managed to squeak out my name, told her I was an attorney, and then bolted to the other side of the room so I didn’t have to say anything else.  It had been a year since my father passed away and I was in NO position to talk about his death in an open forum.  What if she was speaking with my dad right now?! What if she could tell he died?! What if she says something?! Oh, no! I don’t want to break down in tears right here! All of these thoughts rushed through my head.  I loved and missed my dad so much, I did not want to open the door to heartache in front of a bunch of newly found business acquaintances.  I avoided Andrea like the plague and cowered in fear.  We didn’t talk again until 2014.

The only thing abundantly clear about my life back in 2012 was that it was not working.  Within one year I had lost my dad, graduated law school, moved, passed the bar, got married, re-located my mom, and welcomed my nephew to the world.   I was drowning in grief, riddled with anxiety, and I could not get out of my own way.

As an a-type overachiever and I had no idea what to do next.  I figured if I just immersed myself in building my business life would magically get better and the pain would go away.  Except, it didn’t.  The only thing that continued to grow was the numbers on the scale and the hours I had gone without sleeping.  Some days I literally felt as though I was having a heart attack.  I was debilitated with heartache and I believed that I simply had to “keep going”.

I was miserable and something had to give.  That Fall, through my business coach, my life changed forever.  I was introduced to the concept of mindset.  Thoughts create things? Positivity sets the outcome? Yeah…..okay, if you say so! The only reaction I had to that was snark.  I heard of, I actually even read The Secret (it was Oprah recommended!), but I never really understood and I wasn’t willing to buy-in.  I blew it off as jargon, rested my hat on my belief that it was my intelligence that had taken me that far, and went on my way.  The only problem was that I was stuck big time.  I was in the thick of it and nothing was getting better.  So I figured, what the heck! I had nothing to lose.

I decided to jump on the mindset train.  If it worked for all of those other entrepreneurs it could certainly work for me.  What started off as a business building tactic turned into something greater than I ever could have imagined.  I became a mind-set/law of attraction junky.  I entered the world of self-discovery and introspection in an unprecedented manner.  I started pouring over books by people like Jack Canfield, Napoleon Hill, Bob Proctor, Michael Neil, and I immersed myself in one of Fabienne Fredrickson’s Mindset Retreats.

The spark was ignited, there was no turning back.  I devoured anything I could get my hands on.  I was a sponge.  And then, funny enough….I started feeling better! Not only that, I even met my business partner within the next few weeks (more on that at a later time)!  Day-by-day, life was improving.  Things were starting to click.  Life was shifting and I started expanding.  I began meditating, going to reiki and acupuncture, and I learned the hard way the importance of self-care.  I was on a never-ending quest for internal peace.

Then, one day, on a whim in a coffee shop in February 2013, I was introduced to Table Tipping.  Excuse me, table what??? Yes, table tipping.  My friend described to me this experience whereby they sat around a table and received messages from departed relatives by the table tapping out a message.  I thought my head was going to explode.  “What?! What do you mean you received a message from a dead relative through a table?!?!” I had zero comprehension of this.  I was told that the table would tip once for “yes” and twice for “no” and would spell out messages by tapping out the letters of the alphabet.

I was dumbfounded.  I had no idea what to say.  At that point in my life I had never been to a medium, I never really sought out those types of experiences, and I was skeptical to say the least.  The only thing I had done even remotely close was go to a palm reader once with a friend.  However, an invitation was extended and I took the bait. Hook, line and sinker, if this was for real and what I was told was true, I wanted in!  I thought to myself that there was NO WAY that it could be real and I had to find out for myself.

The following week, in a small intimate group of absolute strangers, I had my first Table Tipping experience.  I was blown away.  As expected, and why I avoided Andrea upon first meeting her, I started crying immediately.  An ugly cry.  Snot and tears everywhere, there was no holding back.  I was in pain, and the second I felt my dad’s presence I experienced a release like none other.  I received messages from Dad and others for over 3 hours.  I couldn’t believe what had just occurred.  I was hooked.  I wanted to be connected to my father at all moments.  I wanted to open the channel.  I needed to know more and do more and feel more.  I wanted to feel his presence with me at all times and that is exactly what table delivered.  I was in awe.

Table for me became an incredible tool for healing.  Through this new found communication I was able to close the wounds and find comfort.  I found love and support from my dad in a new way.  Our relationship had changed, but it was still there and it remained palpable.  And so, like any good overachiever, I was determined to figure out how I could table tip on my own.  A new path for expansion had opened, I acquired my table (another divine unimaginable experience), and the journey continued.

Fast forward to March of 2014 and I was yearning for even more.  Other than the small group of individuals that had introduced me to table tipping, I had promised myself that I was not going to utter a single word about any of this to anybody, EVER.  However, I wanted to test this out with new people.  I was on a quest for further validation.  Yes, I was even skeptical of myself at that point.  I knew Andrea was in WBN and I needed a way to practice and continue to expand.  I also knew she would be able to validate what was I was receiving.  I held my breath, and sent an e-mail.

 

After a few bumps in the road (another funny story for a later date), we made a plan to meet.  The second she felt the table move we were instantly connected.  One
meeting later, I met Kristi.  The rest is history.  A dead dad, a business meeting, a table, a medium, a few details in between, and here I am, perfect, whole, and complete, with my trilogy.

Trilogy 1

What comes next? I’m not sure.  What I do know is that I was put here on this earth to specifically help people through their own times of transition, whatever that looks like for them.  Whether that be through the law, healing, messaging, or whatever else they need.  I have been put in a unique position to offer assistance and I am able to offer such with the perfect amounts of both strength and compassion.  I’m taking myself on, I’m reaching new heights, I’m allowing my own effortless expansion, and I’m inviting you all to follow along.

As I move into my first home, I am simultaneously becoming a Mansfield resident as my name goes up on Main Street as part of the Center for Holistic Healing and Art.  The three of us are so excited for our new journey together and I am so excited to share this part of me and to share these opportunities with all of you.  Believe me when I say, there is more to come!

So if you will, please sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.  I know I sure will.  With Love,

Amy

Affirmations

An affirmation is a word or words that will bolster your confidence, solidify your resolve and encourage you to take the next step no matter how daunting. something to keep you moving forward.

Here’s a perfect example: once our 7 year old neighbor was dropped off by the school bus and no one was home to meet him. He came to our door and we could hear him repeating to himself “Be brave, just be brave” until he knocked on our door to ask for help. Now I’m fairly certain no one coached him to do that, he just knew that he needed support and to get that he needed to overcome his shyness. Giving himself a dose of a confidence-boosting affirmation was just the ticket. He was only out there a few moments before he knocked.

Affirmations are a way to use our conscious mind to alter the deep-seated beliefs and behaviors. This can be a part of your daily self-care and a gentle way to show yourself love. The ones that work the best are those that target the real issue that is slowing you down. I believe it is more effective to focus on just a few (one to three max). It is critical to choose affirmations that are stated in the present and in the positive voice i.e. “I am fearless.”

Do something with me, try these phrases on for size by saying them out loud: I am enough; I am strong; I am worthy; I am accomplished; I am beautiful; I am lovable; I am powerful; I trust my instincts; I embrace change; I welcome challenges; I am capable; I love myself; I am successful. The one or ones that are the most difficult for you to say with truth and conviction may be where you want to begin your daily affirmation ritual.  

Say it out loud at least a few times per day. Affirmations aren’t going to change how you feel immediately but rather over time- you say it and think it with your conscious mind until your subconscious aligns. Soon you begin making decisions and taking actions as if it were true until your words, actions and feelings about that affirmation all line up!

Navigating Life As An Empath

Last night we had the privilege of holding an Empath Support Group at Uplifting Connections in Bridgewater at the generous invitation of the owners, Kellie and Jon Hailey.  14 empaths gathered to share concerns and questions as well as stories of challenges and triumphs. Questions were sometimes answered from our experiences but often channeled directly from Spirit. We are fully supported in our quest to live comfortable and meaningful lives!! Those in attendance ranged in age from recent graduates to retirees and were all relieved to see recognition and understanding on the other faces in the group as they spoke of experiences many in their lives had deemed somehow wrong or unacceptable.

Each time we hold one of these groups there is a common theme or thread that runs through the evening. Last night’s theme was personal emotional safety and coping with the extra feelings of those around you. Several important tools were shared including staying grounded and practicing good self-care. Among the specific coping mechanisms that were shared, many talked about spending time outside, being in or near water, using deep breathing, prayer and crystals. One of the more unique practices was to write the unwanted emotions down and then to shred the paper while deliberately releasing the emotions as it shredded. I have a feeling there will be some busy shredders in the upcoming weeks!  A full list of all of these tried and true suggestions was created and it may be found here.

One final thought that is important enough to repeat here- we are all connected- how that shows up in our lives differs but we should always try to react to another with compassion and from a place of love. Whether you know who those “extra” emotions belong to or not, sending out love and light is a powerful and empowering tool that will help keep you safe, aid those you are sensing and help you release those emotions that don’t belong to you.

26 Ways to be Safe As An Empath

26 Ways to Keep Your Peace as an Empath

I know the title is “…Ways to Stay Safe…”, but right from the start, we’d like to reframe that and say that you are ALWAYS safe. Being peaceful, comfortable, and content is really what we’re talking about here.

As an empath, the biggest challenge may be staying emotionally peaceful while still being an active participant in the world. Closing yourself off from everyone and everything that might make you feel is just not a very functional or fun option! Instead you need to find ways to comfortably be with your family & friends, go to work and navigate public spaces like grocery stores, restaurants and theaters.

You are only able to do this gracefully on a daily basis when you take time to stay grounded, re-fuel yourself with good self-care, and fully accept yourself (warts and all). Here are 26 tips on how to cope with the sense of “overwhelm” and take care of yourself so that you can be the best empathic you that you can be!

  1. Take a bath or shower. Place clearing or grounding crystals in with you for an extra boost of emotional cleansing.
  2. Take deep breaths. Visualize pulling power up from the earth as a bonus.
  3. Practice Yoga
  4. Carry a grounding crystal on you, it may be especially helpful to touch it or move it in your fingers to help you shift your energy.
  5. Burn sage or other incense.
  6. Acknowledge that the emotion is coming from outside of you.
  7. Pray- to Whomever you choose for support for you as well as for those who are suffering.
  8. Send positive, healing energy to whomever needs it.
  9. Use your sense of humor- laughter can elevate any energy!
  10. Remind yourself that you are not the cause, you cannot control it and you cannot cure it.
  11. Remove yourself from those sending out strong and uncomfortable emotions.
  12. Avoid being in close proximity to those you sense will overwhelm you with their feelings.
  13. Write down the feelings that don’t belong to you and shred them, releasing them from your energy at the same time. You could also tear the paper or burn it.
  14. Using a blow dryer or hand dryer, imagine it blowing the extra emotions away from you.
  15. Get outside. Make contact skin to ground or a tree. Release any emotions that aren’t yours to Mother Earth to be transformed.
  16. Recite or sing a mantra to change your energy and release what’s not yours.
  17.  Exercise. This is very grounding as well as mind-clearing.
  18. Meditate.
  19. Get regular massage, Reiki or other energy work to keep you balanced and clear.
  20. Make sure to include regular time alone and quiet in your schedule.
  21. Make time to be creative.
  22. Feed yourself well.
  23. Get enough sleep.
  24. Go to the water- large bodies of water are very rejuvenating.
  25. Begin your day by placing your feet on the ground very purposefully with the image of sending your roots deep into the ground. This is a very quick and easy way to start off well-grounded.
  26. Reach out for support wherever you can find it.
