Dressing with Intent

Dressing with Intent for Empaths:

Empathy is the ability to read and understand people and be in-tune with or resonate with others, voluntarily or involuntarily of one’s Empath capacity.

You May Be An Empath If…

  1. You look at someone and just know their emotional state.
    2.You can feel the energy coming at you (or being drained) from another person, especially from the eyes.
    3. You have a blocked feeling in your chest [or core], as if someone is tugging on it.
    4. Tend to run away from people when stressed, rather than engage.
    5. You’ve been called “oversensitive,” especially if you’re male.
    6. Always know where danger may lurk. (Curiously, you may have avoided accidents).
    7. Are drawn to the tranquility of animals.
    8. Are drawn to mountains, nature, or the ocean – anywhere outdoors.
    9. Cannot bear violence in any form.
    10. Can easily produce tears, sometimes at will.
    11. You can feel the physical aches & pains of others.
    12. Feel better after a good, intense cry.
    13. See things from the “bigger picture” and from “the larger scheme of things.”
    14. Are overwhelmed by large crowds or mobs (e.g. shopping malls).
    15. Can sometimes feel affected by the energy of the full moon.
    16. Have intense, fantastic, and sometimes lucid, dreams.

If this sounds like you…You’re not alone.

The number one key is to STAY GROUNDED in your body. This means getting regular exercise, eating nutritional food, and cutting out over stimulating things in your life.  Walk outside barefoot!

How holding onto emotions can harm you:

Anger-weakens the liver

Grief-weakens the lungs

Worry-weakens the stomach

Stress-weakens the heart and brain

Fear-weakens the kidneys

They are the invisible cause of much suffering physically and emotionally.

Manage Your Empathic Tendencies

Using your morning ritual to “greet the new day” and importance of properly clearing yourself and proper shielding. Ideas to start your day: run a selenite wand through your auric field and then wash your hands using salt (visualize any excess energy gathering in the salt and being washed away by the water) when showering allow the water to clear your aura and wash it down through the Violet flame filter on the drain (to transmute it), while putting on lotion…say affirmations, while dressing visualize chakra clearing (I also say an affirmation as I put on my medicine bag and putting crystals in pocket).  I found the following worked for me when I was working outside my home, when I returned home after work, I would clear my aura with a selenite wand and burn sage to smudge with.

Ask your guides to tone down the messages you are receiving from others…you still receive the message but don’t have to take on someone else’s gunk.

Carry crystals with you Black Tourmaline, Sugilite, Shamanite Black Calcite or any you are drawn too! Create a crystal grid in your sacred space. Green Tourmaline has many benefits for all the Zodiac Signs.  It brings Air signs down to earth.  It offers endurance to the Fire signs.  It enables Earth signs to feel in a constant state of prosperity, and it balances the emotions of Water signs.

Use essential oils or incorporating the use of specific flower essences can help ease feelings of overwhelming or anxiousness associated with empathic natures.

Empath Essences

  • Yarrow– Energy Shield. Yarrow is a stabilizing remedy. It can help to shield anyone who is extra sensitive or vulnerable from energies that could deplete their personal space.
  • Mountain Pennyroyal– Mountain Pennyroyal remedy is a protective agent that gives clarity of mind and blocks negative energies. It can also assist the Empath cleanse and purge energies that have already been picked up. Expels negativity and psychic attachments.
  • Pink Yarrow– Pink Yarrow remedy helps anyone needing to create emotional boundaries. It allows a person to remain compassionate to the needs of others without taking on their burdens.
  • Dandelion– Dandelion remedy serves as a laundering service for washing away painful emotions. It allows emotional sludge to move through the body and get tossed away much like how dirt gets removed from clothing when it is laundered.

Light the orange candle while saying:

“On this first day of August, I light a candle to celebrate the harvest.

As the wheel of the year turns and the days start to grow shorter, I honor the Lord and Lady and thank them for the blessings and prosperity they have brought to me this year.”

 (Take bite of bread and offer to Lord and Lady on a plate, take sip of apple cider and offer to them)

“I honor those who came before me, and all things living on this earth.”

Think of a trait you wish to change in yourself and write it on a piece of corn husk, after reciting spell, put in cauldron and burn it.

“With this pen, I ask for guidance,

To remain heart centered in the Light,

And as the husk burns away that which I released to change.”

Job Spell

Job Spell

Items needed:

Ant hill dirt

Honey

Yellow candle

Nail

Lighter

When you gather the ant hill dirt be sure to offer the ants something sweet in return for their gift.

Sit in meditation and decide on what type of job you want.  Really think about the details….do you want insurance, good pay, good co-workers, etc.

Take the yellow candle (yellow opens doors, the way the sun shines and opens flowers) and with a nail carve into the side of the candle the type of job and how much money you expect to make, or working conditions you expect and then rub some honey into the candle (bees are another hard worker!).

Roll the candle in the dirt.  Burn the candle at the New Moon.  While the candle is burning really visualize the type of job you meditated on, and now visualize you already have the job.  Visualize walking into the building and sitting at your desk or work station. Let the candle burn down.

I did this spell with a friend and the very next morning she received an email telling her about an opportunity to apply at the very job she had visualized.  I remember her asking if she should apply.  I reminded her that we did just do the spell the night before!  So be open to opportunity.
