Empaths, Stop Comparing Yourself to Other 'Spiritual' People

As empaths, lightworkers, and healers, it's not up to us if those we seek to help take our 'medicine' or not.  We are each here for a reason that is unique to all of human history. There is no one like you, and there never will be again. EVER. So why is it so hard for us to embrace how the Divine sees us? If we could see ourselves from the big picture, Eagle-eye perspective, we would know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we fulfill our purpose just by simply existing, breathing, shopping, doing the laundry, phoning our family and friends, taking care of our children, managing our 'to-do' list, and everything else we deem 'mundane.' 

For those of us who work with other people, we all have our 'tribe,' that vibrates at our unique energetic frequency, and to compare ourselves to others is a denial of the gifts we have been given. Are you exactly where you want to be in your dream life, right now? Perhaps not. And yet it's exactly where you are destined to be. Without YOU, the web we are collectively weaving of forging (while facing our shadows) a benevolent future for our children would not exist. Your ancestors and spirit guides are doing cartwheels for YOU, at this very moment! So smile, because you are amazeballs!

Love,
Michael Smith

Empower Yourself with Empath Intuitive Coaching and Healing with Dr. Michael R. Smith

Are you an empath or sensitive who has been experiencing any of the following?
* Isolating yourself or hiding from the world, emotionally eating
* Unable to vocalize your own truth or blockage in throat chakra
* Attracting the wrong partners or narcissistic partners
* Unsure of your life purpose and seeking clarity on your next steps in life
* Sabotaging yourself, and generally overwhelmed by others energy.

I can help!   My name is Dr. Michael R. Smith, and I am an author of two empath self-help books, including the Complete Empath Toolkit.  I've worked for 15 years exclusively coaching empath and sensitive clients to empower themselves and prevent being overwhelmed.

I blend mind-body intuitive coaching techniques with the use of energetic and spiritual antenna to help empaths and sensitive people make sense of their realities. I help you to become aware of what is your energy and what is someone else's energy, and then I also teach you how to cope with the sea of energy in which we all live. In addition to the information coming from your Highest Spirit guides (I'm a Spiritual Medium as well as an empath), you'll learn powerful techniques to cope with and dump unwanted or lower vibratory energy, especially energy from others.

I lead you through energy exercises - and I myself can also assist with facilitating a little extra spiritual energy for you if your Highest Self is asking for it. (I have spent 15 years being trained in mind-body energy medicine and indigenous healing techniques - click here for my professional bio). Most clients feel much lighter and clearer after a session.

The energy work facilitates release of lower vibratory energy that will align, balance, and strengthen your aura (energy field). Imbalances in your chakras are addressed through exercises and flow is restored. If desired, you can learn about your mission/purpose and your unique gifts and talents that you've chosen in this life. We work to re-pattern your maladaptive habits of thinking in a fun, fascinating process that leads to laughter and acceptance.

I act as a coach and facilitator and gentle mirror. Perhaps most of all, we work to promote your own authenticity, and voicing of your own highest truth.  I will provide the guidance, accountability, and tools. I will do whatever it takes for you.

You can read what others have said of my work, including endorsements from renowned psychic Sonia Choquette.

HOW MUCH IS INTUITIVE EMPATH COACHING?

Click here to sign up for a single session ($175) for two hours of work (60 minutes phone time).

Click here to sign up for three sessions ($350) for six hours of work (3 60-min phone sessions).

A payment plan is available for the three session package.  By making payment, you agree that you are 100% committed to your success and that there are no refunds.

If you would like to tailor your own customized coaching package, contact me here and we can negotiate rates for a monthly, three month, or six month package of twice weekly coaching.

I spend 60-minutes prior  to the phone session tuning into your energy, meditating and retrieving information from Spirit and your Highest Self, and clearing energy via shamanic methods.  Prior to your session, I create a sacred space for you in front of my altar. I use several large crystals and burn sage, sweetgrass, and incense to clear any discordant energy. I will then proceed to enter a trance state and using spiritual and intuitive abilities, I usually receive specific information and intuitive guidance which I write down and which is sometimes brought up during the session if it's for your Highest Good.  I will then also use shamanic techniques to clear energy in your field.

Here is some feedback on the quality of my work:

"Michael, you are a true gift. I am grateful that you helped me to clear some of the negative energies around my heart chakra. There has definately been a block there for quite some time. You have an amazing gift of healing."- RP

"I was not able to find people who could help me before I found you. After you helped me, I felt wonderful for the first time, and all these beautiful things started to come to me. It gave me hope that it is possible to really heal."-- V.N

"You've taught me more than I could ever imagine. It blows my mind what you've brought to the table. Anything else other than what you bring seems so sub-par to me I am bored." -Rizer Walton, TX


""Thank you for being in my Life.....I truly, truly mean it. I think this is a FIRST in this Life-time....that I am truly excited about & trusting the future !!)". Jim

Empaths Try CBD Oil to Raise Vibes & Boost Energy

This oil is often called hemp or cannabis oil.   It is non-psychoactive and does not contain THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

CDB is one of over 60 compounds found in marijuana and it has tremendous healing properties.  It reduces nausea, controls and eliminates pain, stops seizures, reduces inflammation in the body (a big one for empaths), helps with anxiety and depression, and is a powerful antioxidant that will raise your vibration.  I’ve found it also helps my sleep.  

One of my mentors in indigenous ways, who has been a ceremony leader for 25 years, Charlton Wilson, sells the highest quality CBD oil available.  It is ceremonially created and prayed over and also a crystal grid is used to enhance its vibration even further.   It’s more expensive than others on the market, and yet it’s more effective.

My mother, who has Parkinsons, had been using an inferior brand of CBD with no effect.  As soon as I gifted her a bottle of Charlton’s oil, her pain went away.   It’s around $145 for a month supply with $15 shipping.  Contact Charlton by emailing him at hypnotherapycw@yahoo.com or call 970-412-0078. Your purchase will help Charlton manifest his spiritual community.

The Importance of Sleep for Empaths and Sensitives

Empath Matt says “I have a problem in that I am very sensitive to the repressed emotional pain of others around me, and absorb it like a sponge. Most of the time I can handle it, but it means I am unable to sleep in the same room as my wife, or anyone for that matter. I will wake up feeling blurry and nauseous the next morning, with a strong hangover type of feeling.”

Matt’s situation is all too common for those of us who are sensitive to energy. Too much interaction with other people causes energy drain in many empaths. Many of us simply cannot be around people for too long, or we will begin to become engulfed.

Finding and CLAIMING your own personal space while sleeping while in the context of a relationship is a skill that many of us are LONGING for. For some of us, the thought of being engulfed causes us to avoid relationships in the first place. For those of us who already are in loving relationships, there are some things we can do to establish boundaries, especially when it comes to sleeping arrangements.

Empaths require good quality regenerative sleep more than the average population, and yet our sleep can be fraught with problems unless we take the matter into our own hands. Many of us simply cannot handle the energy of our partner for too long. There is NOTHING wrong with that. There is NO GUILT or SHAME in knowing that. Your partner’s noises and movements during the night may cause you to lose sleep, leading to less than ideal energy the next day. Furthermore, energy fields merge when you are so close to your partner, and you may be absorbing his or her energy during the night. It is for this reason that it is wise for you as an empath to make a bold decision about how you will sleep. Are you willing to sleep in the same bed with your partner? It doesn’t have to be the only option. The beauty is YOU GET TO DECIDE!

It would be wonderful if you could share your TRUTH with your partner and let them know that you’re a sensitive person and that includes during sleep as well. There are options. You can sleep in another separate bed in the same room, permanently sleep in an entirely different room, temporarily sleep in another room to recharge, or you can come together as a couple a few nights a week and sleep in the same bed if that would generate connection for you as a couple. There are Earthing mattress covers that ground you to the Earth’s energy during sleep and many claim this has improved their sleep significantly (I know it has for me).

Experiment to see what feels right for you, and discuss your sleep with your partner regularly, to make sure you’re both on the same wavelength. This will ensure that your boundaries will continue to be respected, and your healthy relationship with flourish! MOST OF ALL, KNOW THAT YOU ARE EMPOWERED FOR WHATEVER CHOICE FEELS RIGHT TO YOU! There are absolutely NO rules, only the ones you DECIDE to create for the benefit of yourself, and ultimately the benefit OF US ALL!

SMILES! Michael S.

Are you an empath or sensitive seeking physical healing?

As empaths and sensitive people, we are challenged to keep our physical and emotional bodies in a state of health, free from the energies we pick up from others.

That's why you may want to know about a man who can help you do just that, my friend and co-author, LD Porter.  

A simple, humble man, he can help you eliminate the lower-vibratory energies and blocks that have accumulated.  

He's especially gifted at working with empaths or highly sensitive people who have energy illnesses such as chronic fatigue, lupus, fibromyalgia and electrosensitivities.

He does this from a distance, over the phone, without touching your physical body.

To help you learn more, you can read my article that explains how you can experience healing.

PTSD & Addictions Healing for Empaths and Sensitive People with Trauma

A lot of empaths and highly sensitive people have PTSD and trauma in their backgrounds.  I want to tell you about an incredible mentor of mine...a gentle soul who can help you as an empath heal your PTSD or trauma permanently. He also works with addictions of all kinds including alcohol, pills, weight/eating, and smoking cessation.  His name is Charlton Wilson, and he's a psychotherapist who has been following indigenous healing ways for 30 years. (He's also sober 30 yrs).

How does Charlton work with you? In an incredibly gentle, supportive and compassionate environment, he and you will identify the things (events, PTSD, traumas, conflicts, stressors et cetera) that are getting in your way of your day-to-day living as an empath or highly sensitive person. Then with Hypnotherapy and other techniques, you and Charlton together will change how you react to your present and future by removing the connection to trauma or addiction.

Says Charlton: "This process seems so scary for so many people. I want to let you know that I have been doing this work for over 25 years. I have been extremely successful helping people like you with PTSD and trauma every day. This is the reason I am here: to help you as an empath. Those things that seem insurmountable, they are not. You, the divine and powerful human that you are, can overcome all your obstacles and flourish."

Charlton can work with you via phone or Skype. 

You can contact Charlton here and learn about his background and rates.  I can't recommend him more highly for empaths and highly sensitive people.

Blessings,

Tips for Empaths or Highly Sensitive in Romantic Relationships and Dating

When we as empaths came into this world our souls chose a journey that we knew would fulfill our calling here on this planet. Many remember being sensitive from the time they were children. The stories are all very similar when you ask an Empath what they experienced as a child and what the world felt like. For many, it was a very confusing time because they were feeling bombarded with different feelings and emotions that were not their own. Many empaths claim to be people pleasers or codependent because it just makes their life easier to just help things to go smoothly.

The incredible thing about an empath is that when they start to intuitively feel that something is going on in a relationship, they are usually 100% on the money. They can sense things long before their partner might ever start to mention anything is going on. It’s important to honor this powerful ability.

If you are newly in a romantic relationship or thinking about venturing out into the dating world, it’s so important to remember a few key points that will help you to maintain a sense of inner peace. Peace is important when going into the world because it helps us to make clear decisions, stay grounded and to see situations with clarity and discernment.

TIPS FOR DATING and Romantic Relationships as an Empath or Highly Sensitive Person

1. Don’t allow your romantic partner to demand more than feels comfortable for you. It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of a new relationship, and since we want to see people happy because it feels better for us, we must remember to hold our boundaries and just give what we can and what feels safe for us to give. We have a decision to make in every moment so that we help ourselves to stay grounded and centered.

2. Allow your romantic or love partner to express themselves in any way that they need to. Highly sensitive people really want to help their partners to feel good all the time. Sometimes it’s better to just let that person have the hard experience for their own growth. As painful as it is to standby and do nothing, it’s for the best of everyone involved.

3. Find a place to get away to if you need to center yourself. Being your best self is about taking care of your needs first and foremost. No one ever helped anyone else if they were already struggling and
miserable. If you are feeling triggered or scared, the worst thing you can do is act out of fear. The best thing you can do is to find a place to reconnect to the power of divine Spirit and to allow that love you have for life to reemerge.

4.  Be patient and allow yourself to learn and make mistakes. So many empaths and highly sensitive individuals experience a high level of perfectionism. This comes from always being highly attuned to the energy of the room or the moods of our parents when we were growing up. If things felt awry, we learned to adjust our behavior to not make waves and keep the peace. This doesn’t allow for much learning though as we put unrealistic demands on ourselves to be everything for our romantic partner. Patience is also the nature of the Universe and we learn to grow in leaps and bounds by being kind to ourselves.

Finding inner peace is the focus of your work as an empath. It is paramount if you are going to function in the world at large. This is why: energy flows in the direction of least resistance. If you’re stressed out and feeling bogged down with other people’s energy, then you are blocking the flow of the natural direction of energy. This causes health problems along with other stressful consequences.

Even in the most stressful of situations, it is important to breathe. If you are having a disagreement with your partner and you feel the stress of the situation starting to make your muscles contract, breathe. This is something that we can do anywhere and anytime. 4 seconds on the inhale, 4 seconds
holding the breath, and 4 seconds on the exhale is the ideal breath pattern to create a feeling of peace.

Allow the peace of the Universe to find it’s way into your life. This is the most relaxed place you can find and that place is actually the most powerful place! Functioning at your highest potential, especially in romantic relationships, is in your place of joy and relaxation!
