As an empath, you’re going to go through a lot of trauma whether you realize it or not. After a while Empaths experience overload in many ways and if not dealt with properly, those overloads can take serious hold over their lives.
Regardless of where your trauma is coming from, you as an empath, need to be able to work through it. Without working through it, you will find yourself stuck in a period of darkness that most fail to truly get through properly. Because the things you’re dealing with are more-so energetic, they’re not as plain to see as you might want them to be.
Below I am going to go over some tips for healing and dealing with trauma for empaths that can make huge differences moving forward. While some of these things might sound simple enough, they’re all rough for those trying to heal. That being said, the more you work at them the better you may end up feeling.
9 Tips For Empaths On How To Heal Trauma:
1. Accept that you are in need of healing.
As someone who works so hard to help heal others accepting that you are in need of healing yourself can be complex at best. The sooner you accept this, the sooner you can kick things off. When you really realize you’re facing trauma you can begin to identify it.
2. Spend some time meditating over what may be causing your trauma.
If you don’t know where this trauma is coming from you need to figure that out. Through meditation this is possible. Really dive within and allow yourself to explore the unknown.
3. Let your feelings out.
Don’t refuse to feel the emotions before you. If you’re angry, be angry and if you need to cry, cry. Don’t worry about others right now, worry more about satiating things within your being.
4. Be kinder to yourself.
As empaths sometimes we are much harder on ourselves than we are others. This needs to come to an end. You should treat yourself well.
5. Set proper boundaries where they are needed.
If someone has hurt you time after time cut them out of your life. Stop being so willing to compromise your boundaries with others. If you are not well, you cannot work to help others.
6. Acknowledge that you cannot always help others and you’re not able to fix everyone.
Some empaths face trauma because they want to do all they can for others and well, with some people there is nothing the empath can do. There are people in this world who do not want your help and you have to let that sink in. Yes, it sucks but no, it isn’t your fault.
7. Talk to someone about what you’re going through.
Even empaths need to lean on others from time to time. You shouldn’t feel bad about this. We all have to help one another in this world.
8. Let go of energies that do not belong to you.
If you’ve been constantly taking in emotions and energies from other people but never properly clearing them out you’re causing yourself more pain than you should be. By letting go of energies that do not belong to you, you can reset this. I know, it sounds easy but sometimes it can be quite hard to figure out what is yours and what is someone else’s.
9. Spend some time alone to recharge and allow healing.
You don’t have to constantly be on the go and doing for others. Sometimes you need to take time for yourself. Let yourself be alone and allow your own energies to replenish properly this will lessen your burden tremendously.
