Do you ever imagine a bubble around you, creating a buffer between you and another person or an emotionally challenging situation?

Or when that doesn’t work, maybe you put on an invisible suit of armor to increase the level of protection...

If “shielding” yourself in this way works for you, read no further.

However, if you still come away sometimes feeling exhausted, ungrounded, or overwhelmed, it may be because you are overly empathic and have more to learn about how to manage the energetic boundaries between you and the world around you.

If this is your experience, definitely read on — and be sure you check out the video below with leading intuitive healer and spiritual teacher Wendy De Rosa.

As Wendy teaches, the reason visualizing a bubble or shield around you often doesn’t prevent you from absorbing energy is because there are ‘imprints’ or blocks within your own energy system. These imprints cause you to lose touch with your needs, have difficulty grounding in yourself, and to believe (subconsciously) that it’s not safe to be in your body or your power.

In the 6-minute video below, Wendy De Rosa illuminates the root causes of being overly empathic...and how you can start to transform this pattern.

The energy imprints literally reside in your root (first) chakra as well as in your second chakra, which is your relationship “power center.”

Watch as Wendy shares the following insights and guides you to stop being an ‘energy sponge’:

  • (00:07) — Why it’s not about other people’s energy
  • (00:40) — The triggers that reveal your empathic power
  • (01:15) — Your energy body & chakra ‘power centers’
  • (02:21) — Why shielding doesn’t protect you from absorbing energy around you
  • (02:48) — The core belief keeping you from feeling powerful in your own body
  • (04:07) — Expand into love and Divine light
  • (05:10) — Clearing the conditioning in your 1st, 2nd & 3rd chakras

The silver lining is what Wendy calls “empathic intuition.” With the proper clearing techniques, you’ll be able to tap into your innate ability to not only feel but transform negative into positive energy. This is your healing gift...

Be sure you catch 5:10 when Wendy reveals the conditioning that happens in your root chakra that makes you over-sensitive and how you can clear energy and cut negative cords with others through your second chakra.

When did you last take on someone else’s energy and what was this like for you? How did you find your center again? We’d love to hear from you.
