Handling the energy of others

QUESTION: Masters I am very sensitive to energy and the energy of others goes right through me, where they have pain, I feel it, and their emotions, and makes me feel ill, even the vibration of some people’s voices feels very uncomfortable. With my job doing massage and treatments it is even worse as it is hands on the client but I have the ability to absorb the pain and heal. How do I protect myself from the discomfort and energy drain? ~Lauren, Australia

ANSWER: Two things are happening here. You are not only feeling the energy of other people, but you are unconsciously allowing it to be absorbed into your physical body. Secondly, you have not instituted protections to keep this from happening and have not learned clearing techniques that will expel the energies from your person.

As an empathic, sensitive person, you have options. You can completely shut down your reception of energy, or you can use it to learn more about people and how to help them in your profession. If you wish to bar it from being felt, you need to close off sensations other than your own. This is a very drastic solution and may not be reversible if you wish to use this skill later.

A second option is to create, or have help from your guides in creating, a series of filters that allow in only those energies you wish to receive. Say you want to feel where a client is in pain so that you might concentrate on massaging that area, open only to that sensation. If you also want to assist with clearing the cause of the pain, you could ask for the emotional connection to the cause so you can work your client through their blockage.

But have the filter flow through you, releasing the pain to the ground after you become aware of it, instead of absorbing it into your body. You can use this same filtering system on the auditory vibrations. It is like adjusting the treble and bass while listening to music. Ask your personal guides or the healing guides to help you with these adjustments. Your intention is the controlling factor for all these techniques.

If you absorb the pain and then have to heal yourself from the effects, you are doing double duty – for yourself and the client. If you sense it as it passes through, you obtain the information you need but don’t have to do the work to remove it later. Something that helps remove residual energy is visualizing yourself under a cleansing waterfall of vibrational energy, which simultaneously cleans and rejuvenates.

Part of what you are sensing is also negative energy and discarnates that are attached to your clients. You can prevent these from impacting you if you offer a protective affirmation before beginning your treatment. Just ask that only beings of the light participate and that all negative entities refrain from entering your treatment zone.
