Most often we think of waves as water crashing relentlessly into the shore in varying degrees of energy and force. Waves are also vibrations that carry energy from one place to another.
As HSP/Empaths we can feel like we’re relentlessly being struck over and over again by emotions- wave after wave of emotion crashing against us knocking us down.
“Emotions are what make us human. Make us real. The word ’emotion’ stands for energy in motion. Be truthful about your emotions, and use your mind and emotions in your favor, not against yourself.” – Robert T. Kiyosaki
ENERGY in MOTION
Emotions are energy currents that flow through us. Every wave of emotion, every flood of feeling, that we experience is designed to flow through us. Each emotion is a message from our soul communicating to our conscious self.
All of our feelings as HSP/Emapths have varying degrees of intensity- from our warmest enthusiasm to our highest anxiety. But we can forget that each one- with its highs and lows- always begins and ends. When we become caught up in vibrations, energies that do not serve our emotional health, this is when we suffer most as Highly Sensitives.
Brining our awareness to the present moment in times of overwhelm and struggle is a way of showing ourselves the much needed and much deserved self-compassion we deserve as HSP/Es. In a world where our emotions are so often misunderstood and criticized it’s critical to our wellbeing that we take the time we need to stop and focus on what we need in the moment.
The waves will never stop crashing against us but our resilience and strength to hold up against them can grow through mindful self care.
