Dealing with sensitivities and awareness

QUESTION: Masters, during my spiritual process I have started to feel energy in different ways. I can feel what other people are thinking; what kind of energy they are sending, what they feel; and their emotional blockages. I don’t know how to handle this kind of information. Most people don’t understand what they think is energy and that someone can read it. Some people are very negative and send negative energy for others. How can I handle this? I can’t carry every problem. How can I be connecting in unconditional love and at the same time I can feel people suffering? Could you please help me in my situation? ~Niina, Finland

ANSWER: You are what is known as a sensitive empathic individual. This is something that you hone during your lifetime depending on the amount of time you put into working within energy. This is a pattern of behavior you have developed over several incarnations, primarily to be able to assist others to understand who and what they are and to work through their life lessons.

Trying to get others to know what energy is, and that theirs can be “read” by another, is outside the comprehension of most people unless they have done spiritual work into the essence of the soul. But they do not have to understand the principles in order to be helped by one capable of using energy.

You exist within a duality, so it stands to reason that you would be surrounded by negativity as well as positive loving energy. With your sensitivity, it is possible to block the negativity from having any impact upon you by using your intention to do so.

No one can help another unless they are willing to be helped, so don’t feel you have to be vested in the outcome of your work. Do your utmost and let the client decide where they want the results to lead.

Part of your spiritual path is to remove yourself from ego judgment so that you may step back and not be affected by the suffering of other people. You are witnessing the lessons they have chosen. Send them love that they might find the direction they need to progress through the work they chose. Stay in your unconditional love and share the feeling with them that they will desire to work toward that end.
