This past week I experienced a number of panic attacks.
It took me a minute to realise – as I’ve never truly had one before.
Terror settling in every part of my body.
I know a lot of the panic I was feeling is not my own.
As an empath, an intuitive, a psychic – I’m plugged into the energies of people around me, and I constantly work to keep my energetic boundaries in place.
Right now the energy I am picking up is infused with shock, grief and uncertainty.
But what about the energy attached to people I used to know?
The people who are no longer in my life?
There are two people in my awareness at this time, who show up in my dreams, and in my thoughts.
The bond I once shared with them, and that I still share with them energetically, means I can feel their emotions.
This is a lot for one woman to carry!
So I have had to work harder to keep my energy field protected. To return to myself. To ground.
I’ve also had to let myself feel and accept that I am still connected to these two people.
Whether we are conscious of it or not, we all have certain people that are holding on to us right now or that we are holding on to – using memories as a crutch.
At a moment in time when our connections are everything, we cannot afford to ignore the existence of those ‘other’ connections not currently in our lives.
Trying times bring up a lot of nostalgia – sometimes just for nostalgia sake – but often to point our path in another direction, to close things out or to clean things up.
You may be prompted to say a few words to someone you have not spoken to in a while, I know I have been.
You may be faced with someone who reaches out to you.
You may need to re-enforce or build boundaries in order to keep certain people out.
The key thing to remember is that we really are all in this together, and this includes the people who may no longer be a part of your life.
As we move forward over these next few months, ascertain what you want to do about those ‘other’ connections.
Do you want to take them with you, or do you want to leave them behind?
You can’t truly make this decision until you acknowledge and admit to yourself that they are there.
Much love Txx
