5 Ways to Recharge Energy (for Empaths)


Empaths often find it hard to keep their batteries charged. Work, social, and family obligations make it difficult to stay energetically amped up, and feeling the emotions around us more intensely than the average person makes it all the more crucial to stay in a powerful state. Operating on low energy levels is more likely to attract energy vampires and amplify our tendency to hide from social situations and personal relationships.

While frequent alone time and retreats are good (even crucial) for empaths, it’s not always practical with our busy schedules and obligations.  Sometimes we need quick, go-to recharge methods that work fast and keep us in a healthy energetic state.

Here are 5 easy recharge methods that don’t take a lot of time and can help us feel continuously revived and in a state of self-empowerment:

1. Deep Breaths: Sometimes the simplest practices are the easiest to overlook. Our breath is the quickest and most Deep breathsaccessible path to our power, and regular, deep breaths holds tremendous potential to restore and rejuvenate. Not only does the breath help relieve tension by calming our central nervous system, it also releases toxins, supports mental clarity, massages our organs, helps relieve emotional problems, provides pain anesthetic, assists in building muscle, improves posture, improves blood quality,  aids in digestion, strengthens the lungs, makes the heart stronger, assists in metabolic function, and the list goes on.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, drained, anxious, or overloaded with energy, pause for a moment to take some deep, life-cleansing breaths.  I recommend beginning each morning with some quick breath work. I use the 8/8/8 method:

8 slow breathes in through the nose, out through the mouth, 8 in through the nose, out through the nose, followed by 8 breathes in-and-out through the mouth. With each breath, visualize all excess energy being removed from your energy body and auric field. This technique is extremely powerful, energizing, and stabilizing.

2. Epsom Salt Bath (magnesium): Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to restore the body’s energy through detoxification.

Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body, including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function, and acting to prevent artery hardening. Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches. I recommend Epsom salt baths as a regular energetic hygiene routine for empaths, not only for its numerous health benefits, but most especially for its ability to relieve stress and tension in the body. This is especially beneficial for clairsentients and those who tend to carry the emotional energy of others in their physical bodies.

3. Ground in nature: Nature is another overlooked, yet simple and quick energy booster. Numerous studies have proven Groundingthe amazing healing benefits of nature, but we don’t need to be in some remote location in order to get the benefits. Simply taking off your shoes and placing bare feet on the grass (dirt, or rocks) for 5 min a day can do WONDERS for energetic health. Not only does the electromagnetic field of the earth clear and transmute negative energy and technology pollution, it also acts as an anti-inflammatory, calms the central nervous system, and frees the mind. Combine grounding with deep breathes. If you work in an office, try to go outside on work breaks and take your shoes off to connect, center, and recharge. Every empath I’ve worked with that does grounding as a daily practice reports incredible results to their ability to stay centered and charged throughout the day.

4. Write or talk out your emotions: Empaths process an astronomical amount of energy/emotions throughout the day. Often we don’t know what emotions/feelings are ours, and what we’re picking up from others. Allowing ourselves time to process and release feelings on a daily basis is an important way to keep emotions from being suppressed in our energetic bodies. I like to do an “energy dump” at the end of the day, and write down all that I’m feeling. It’s important not to judge our emotions, and we certainly don’t have to figure them out or “fix” them. Simply feel, validate, and release. Daily emotional processing is good energetic hygiene, and a crucial step to feeling empowered as an empath.

5. Still the mind (meditate): The amazing benefits of stillness for an empath cannot be overstated. It is important to meditationconstantly be poured out, so we can be recharged with new, life-sustaining energy. Think of yourself as a vessel that is always emptied, and always being re-filled. We are in a state of receptivity, and therefore, always being emptied. When we mediate (even just for 5 minutes a day) we still the mind and find our center. All of our power rests in our ability to be in the present moment, and in our experience of silence. In the silence, God speaks (as the say).

Because it’s easy as an empath to get lost in energy and in the emotional climate of those around us, it’s easy to forget the present moment. When we’re anxious, worried, or fearful, we are not experiencing the present moment. Take time each day to still the mind and feel the eternalness of your whole being. You are not your emotions, feelings, or thoughts – and daily reminders of this is crucial for our sanity.

I hope these suggestions helped.

Have a fabulous Tuesday and remember you are loved.

EmBody Bliss: Our Surrendered Nature

EmBody Bliss

Recently Updated1


The tranquil tide at sea does not weep at its ebb,

because it trusts that next is its flow.


Nature is the symphony and dance of the Universe.  With trust in it’s purpose, nature does not live in resistance to itself because it knows it’s an extension of Creator and in the care of Creator.  nature1Nature comes and goes with ease, inspiration, and love – void of worry, void of fear.

Fear is a debilitating emotion, yet most of us have found ourselves in the grasp of it.  When we are in fear, we resist the flow of nature because fear is it’s antithesis.  Fear operates in distrust, while nature operates in trust.

Beneath even the most unsuspected emotion is fear.  In fact, fear of not being entirely loved, accepted, and valued is the collective disease of this planet.  So whether or not you feel loved and valued, know this:  You are loved and creatorvalued by a breathtaking Universe.  You are wanted because your thoughts and desires continue to shape and eternalize this Universe into more.  You are the most important, the most powerful, the most loved, because you are its beautiful hands.

Nature makes it look so easy.  How can we turn our lives over to the Universe in trust, as nature does so well?  How can we step into the vortex of the truth it shows us?  The truth that our nature is inherently rooted in ease and alive with infinite value.  And most importantly, that we are forever taken care of in divine timing.

We can do this by remembering that we are nature.  We may not see or feel it all the time because we’ve become so comfortable with our instinct, but nature pulses within us always.  We are as natural as the tide at sea.  When we live in opposition of it, we live in opposition with ourselves.

In this day in age, we are allowing fear to cloud our inherent trust in the Universe that we’ve been born with.  In that cloudy anxiety, we hold on so tightly to our lives and identity that we can no longer move with the tide.  What Source discovered after this collective experience, was the magic of Surrender.

Surrender is the antidote to fear.  Surrender has taught us that to LET GO is to give permission for divine flow – that is to say, allow the fullness of your desires to unfold.  The state of surrender accepts all conditions and transmutes every pain into a beautiful experience.  It is a powerful and fearless state to be in.  It pulls us through experiences, as we plop out the other side inBXP157711 amazement.  It is much like a life vest, keeping us buoyant in raging water.  It treats all emotions such as Source would; a time to feel, awe, expand, and shift to a greater bliss.  Surrender is one with trust, one with nature.

The best way to explore this is to simply live our part.  The more we surrender and tune into our instinctual and intuitive nature, our trust to be carried by the divine grows, and recollection of the nature kingdom within us grows.

If you cannot yet tune into the nature kingdom within yourself, choose an element of nature thatgaia you resonate with.  For a couple of days, keep your thoughts and actions entangled with the energy of that element – move in the same way that it might, talk in the same way that it might, love in the same way that it might.  Notice the difference in the way your days flow.

Above all else, surrender as you are.  You don’t have to be anything in surrender.  Surrender is void of judgment and effort; it wants nothing more than to take you as you are – exactly as you are.  Flaw or perfection, you are infinite offering in surrender.

Since you are part of nature, you know surrender better than you might think.  Nature does not try, it just IS.  It trusts, it flows, it becomes.  It’s free and flexible.  It revels in the pleasure of it’s own existence.


The weary depths of worry

Where heart and mind distrust


You wage a war against what you truly feel

And what someone told you you must


But what you must do is recognize

The freedom in your fibers

The genius that binds them together

As you


And your natural inclination

To move in the direction of your intuition

And virtuously choose

You must fall deep into the well of your heart

To let it’s pristine waters cultivate

And nourish its seed

Which is you


Then rising out a flower in full bloom
