What Do You Do When You Feel Everyone’s Emotion?

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

Is it hard for you to do simple things like going to the mall? Or participate in small gatherings?

Are you wore out and wore down after you do anything social?

Here are some tips and tools to help you not absorb everything in the room!

First, it’s important to understand why this is an issue for you. When you understand why you do it, it makes more sense how to combat it!

You are a being.

You have a body.

Your body is a receiving organ.

Your eyes see.

Your ears hear.

Your nose smells.

Your mouth tastes.

Your body feels.

Your skin absorbs.

Everything in your body receives.

You have to learn to receive as well.

When you become the receiving organ life becomes easier.

The main reason you feel so drained out, overwhelmed and over-processed is that this reality has taught you how to resist. You are in a constant cycle of resisting information. From a very young age, you are lied to about things that happen around you as people want to “protect you.” You are not told the truth about situations you are aware of. And people are always trying to spare your feelings.

The truth is you knew. From a very young age, you knew those things. You knew the neighbor was a creepy man. You knew that your parents were lying. You have always known things, and you have never been allowed to know them.

This started an interweaving of wrongness.

When your body was repeatably made wrong it started to shut down and resist information.

Then you grew up resisting information.

As you started to realize how deeply you knew things, you started seeking help.

The people you found told, "shield yourself. You don’t have enough protection. Call in more people to protect you." And even with all that protection you still feel drained, overwhelmed, stressed out, anxious, and potentially in pain.

Why? Because your body is a receiving organ!

It’s one job is to receive information from everyone and everything.

It’s not getting the life force it needs to function properly. It’s like it NEEDS the energy from everyone and everything to charge it.

The key is to learn to receive from everyone and everything without having a point of view about it.

When you have a point of view you either resist and react, causing your body to resist and react. You agree and align, causing your body to store this information as true, which if it’s not true for you, throws your body off.

You defend for or against, again throwing off what you know.

Or you have to fight for the right or wrong.

The key is learning to receive from everyone and everything without having a point of view!

When you do this you receive the vital energy you need and you get the space your body requires.

Here’s how it’s done:

1. Put your barriers down. All the way down. Barriers down. Barriers down. Barriers down. Take some nice deep breathes. Nice slow deep breaths giving you some space to slow down.

3. Stay space. You want to become so much space that your molecules are bigger than those around you. When someone is doing “bad” they keep themselves small. They don’t want anyone to see them. When you are large like this you can pull that all the way through you.

4. Receive from everyone and everything. This is KEY! You must learn how to be a receiver.

5. Acknowledge what you know without making it wrong. This is key number two.

If you want to stop feeling overwhelmed and over-processed you have to learn how to show up differently in situations that previously made you feel that way.

You are an aware being. Isn't it time you allowed yourself to be it?

Stop resisting information and become the receiving organ you truly be! Everything changes when you learn to be a receiver!
