An Electromagnetic Device to Shield Empaths and Sensitive People

Our Empath Connection member, AnnaMariah Nau, has alerted me to an electromagnetic device that is able to shield and filter out 80% of the energy that we perceive from others on a daily basis.   

The shield amplifies your own energy field while protecting you from others energies.  

I've also heard feedback from others about the device.   One of our Empath Connection subscribers offers this report:  "I feel like I am not being smothered emotionally and I know it is this shield.  There is a huge shift this week. I have talked to two friends today who are so down in life right now and I can't believe how unaffected I am."   

Check out AnnaMariah's story using the device:

P.S.  (I welcome your suggestions for beneficial resources. Please contact me, Michael Smith, privately for a potential broadcast post here or on our more active Facebook page).

Neutrality: Your Place of Power Where the Divine Resides

Neutrality has been described as the place where God resides. 

It is the space in between your inhalation and your exhalation, and it is a place of Balance and enlightenment. At first, neutrality may seem awkward and perhaps even uncomfortable, especially if you are used to being expansive and enthusiastic. 

The new experience of not caring about the ego's expectations may erroneously lead you to believe that your passion is being lessened. In actuality, existing in a neutral state and not caring about outcomes is perhaps the best place to experience empowerment as an empath or a spiritually sensitive person. 

When you are truly neutral, you are not biased and not projecting. You experience total freedom from reacting or wanting to exist in any other state. 

When you have achieved this centered state, you are personally and spiritually empowered. 

-Excerpt from the Complete Empath Toolkit. 

Make it a beautiful day! Michael S

Feeling Increased Spiritual Pressure: How Empaths and Lightworkers can (not) React

Most empaths have some internal recognition that we are Lightworkers who are here for an important reason. 

There is an increased 'pressure' being created on Earth to move into alignment with the Highest Good/Divine Force. We may perceive the world 'freaking out' and maybe even going a little crazy. Because of our collective actions to create Light, we are being forced to move out of limiting habits and beliefs. When this occurs, you may feel a sense of confusion in yourself and others. Out of that confusion eventually will come a positive new structure, a new divine ‘order’ that will serve us for the long term in the new age in which we live. 

Because of the intensity of energy on the planet, more people are choosing to leave the Earth through violence and suicide. All we can do is stay focused on the Light, even when others lose their focus. Create a ball of Light in your heart with your imagination. 

This will help you not be pulled off your own center. 

Hugs, Michael Smith -

Seeing Yourself with the Eyes of The Divine: What Would you See?

If you could see yourself with the eyes of God, what would you see? Besides the beautiful, amazing child of the Divine that you are, you would also see that you are not necessarily an 'individual' in the way some of us have been taught. 

Instead of seeing a discrete personality, you would likely notice that you ARE all of the people to whom you are connected: your loved ones, partner, siblings, parents, neighbors, friends, and co-workers. We really are all One, and we are all moving together. 

In scientific terms, this is called 'entrainment,' and it happens to you every day of your life. There is no avoiding it. When you can accept and surrender to the fact that you ARE your neighbors, co-workers, and loved ones, your life as an empath becomes more easily filled with grace. 

You can also entrain your nervous system to allow your energy to flow harmoniously. This is a powerful process to help calm yourself in the face of challenging energy.  Learn more and get a free session of entrainment here:

Empath Bill of Rights Exercise: Take Back Your Power

Empath Bill of Rights Exercise: 

Put yourself into a meditative state by slowing your breath to a 12 second inhalation and exhalation. Connect to the energy in your heart, pretend your heart has a mouth and is doing the speaking. 

Then, repeat these phrases out loud, with gusto. Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 as to how much you believe what you just said. If you don’t get above a 7 or 8, try it again with even more intention.

1. I have the right to not feel sad or hurt when others are sad or hurt.

2. I have the right to not engage someone in conversation when doing so may drain me of energy.

3. I have the right to surrender any need for control because the Divine takes care of me.

This exercise is from The Complete Empath Toolkit

Warm hugs!
