Empowered Empath: 10 Steps to Becoming One

Published

on

empowered empath steps image

Can empaths use their sensitivity to impact positive change in others? Of course, yes! As an empath, you have a rare gift. You see the bigger picture from a compassionate perspective. People who are suffering always grab your attention, evoking a strong urge to help them. In addition, you and Mother Nature have a special bond. Indeed, empaths can be the best leaders the universe can ever get. But, how do you ensure your vulnerability never gets the best of you in the process? By living as an empowered empath!

And how do you become empowered? These are the 10 key steps.

10 Steps to Becoming Empowered Empath

Step 1: Understand Yourself

Before any attempts to approach anyone in need of help, understand how you tick. By doing so, you will create a shield around you from any negativity that comes your way. For example, do you know how you became an empath? What circumstance brought out this genetic trait in you?

Understanding yourself is also about knowing your limits. How much criticism or negativity can you take in a day without turning it into self-harm? Once you have this step in check, then you’ll have a solid foundation toward becoming an empowered empath.

Step 2: Heal Yourself Before You Heal Others

Self-Healing Meditation Image

Think about the circumstance that made you realize you were an empath. Did you ever get past it? For example, if it was the loss of a loved one in a tragic accident, have you now forgiven, or are you still holding on to the grudge against the perpetrator?

As an empath, you ought to be healthy to impact health in others. Seek healing to all the scars you are carrying. Otherwise, you risk becoming a manipulator. You don’t want to base your actions on an urge to seek validation and approval from the world.

Step 3: Give Your Interests a Priority

Empaths know that they see and feel the world differently. They always put others before them. Hence, you must be proactive in looking after your own interests. For example, you ought to choose a profession that is not all about making money. Instead, find a career that allows you to make a positive impact on others and yourself too. For, empaths’ self-realization is not always measured by how much money they make. 

Step 4: Be Clear From The Start

Now, empaths tend to internalize other people’s distresses. They are like a sponge that will take in all the energies around them, whether good or bad. But, what if this porous sponge gears itself to absorb only the type of substances that are beneficial to it? For sure, that is what empowered empaths do. They decide what works for them. Then they develop coping mechanisms to counter conflicting energies around them. That way, they live their lives with a central bearing to bring them back in check whenever they deviate.

Step 5: Understand Your Surroundings

Usually, what influences an empaths moods and feelings is in the surrounding yet out of sight. Such an environment makes empaths to experience mood swings. However, when you understand your surroundings, you can be more prepared to deal with it. 

Sieve your surroundings for the things that will affect you. For example, if you know crowds overwhelm you, opt for a taxi instead of a bus or train. If you fear darkness, ensure you are home by sunset.

Step 6: Counter The Negative Energy By Radiating Positive Vibes

Picture this; you are in the hospital visiting a loved one, and all the sad vibes around you are making you feel sick yourself. Or, you are attending a funeral, and you can’t seem to get the grief feeling off your chest. It seems to take a sweeping toll on you.

How do you react to these scenarios as an empowered empath? By trying to find the positives in every tough situation.

For example, in the hospital, you can start by taking your loved one out of the ward to the play area or garden. While there, reminisce about the former times when his health was better. In a funeral, try and give hope to the bereaved. Let them know that the dark cloud will pass, and they will find ways to cope with the loss. This is your way of practicing emotional hygiene.

Step 7: Learn to Shake Off Your Mistakes

So, you’ve not gotten the scholarship you were working very hard to get. Or, you missed the sale when all the leads were in your favor. Learn from these mistakes and move on. As hard as it seems, empaths who forgive themselves more often also forgive others. Hence, they learn not to hold grudges that drain all aspects of their lives. 

Step 8: Have Realistic Expectations

An empathic leader, learn to accept others the way they are. For, you may demand perfection where it is almost impossible. Then, you’ll end up with regrets and turn the failure towards yourself. Know that what you see as success may not be that important to the other person.

Step 9: Trust Your Instincts

Empaths have a rare gift of hindsight for both good and adverse events in their lives. Use this gift to stay clear of any misfortunes that are about to happen. For example, do you have a hunch that you are in love with a narcissist? Observe the tell-tale signs early to avoid emotional abuse.

Step 10: Empower Fellow Empaths

Finally, as an empowered empath, connect with other like-minded people in your community. Do you have empaths that are victims of narcissistic abuse? Form support groups where they can start their healing process. This way, you can help other empaths embrace their unique traits. Create an environment where you can mingle surrounded by positive vibes. It also gives you a chance to flourish.

Conclusion

Empowered empaths are a power to reckon in the universe. They use their sensitive nature to be understanding and compassionate to others. It is a breeze of fresh air in a world full of people dealing with anger, depression, stress, and frustrations. Take proactive steps to understand who you are. Guard your vulnerability by setting clear boundaries on how to interact with others. Ascertain that your intuition is always right. And, if possible, have an avenue where you can nurture other empaths.

Feng Shui Astrology For July 2022: What to Expect This Month?

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology For September 2021 Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the year’s fourth month starts on July 7th and ends on August 7th. Therefore, all the recommendations given in this article will be accurate until August 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of the five elements.

July 2022 is the month of the Fire Goat. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in July 2022 and how to properly choose dates for different events.

Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022

The Energy of the Month of the Fire Goat

According to the Chinese calendar, July 2022 is ruled by the Fire Goat.

In Chinese mythology, the Fire Goat is an image of red-hot embers crackling merrily on the fire. Under the influence of July’s energies, people may have an increased desire to be the center of attention at any cost. This tendency may make them more artistic, charismatic, overly emotional, excitable, and even irritable. People can also lie more often and embellish their own achievements.

So, the month promises to be quite hot, both literally and figuratively. Hot and dry weather often drives people crazy, so if you feel emotional tension, try to be more patient and practice mindfulness. Don’t react to possible conflict or problems immediately. Take your time to calm down and cool off first. Also, try to avoid being in the sun too much this month. It may increase the Fire element which could bring more emotional intensity to your life. This month, it is especially beneficial to spend time close to the water – by the lakes, rivers, or ocean. Even swimming in the pool can help to cool down the excessive Fire element.

Southeast is the most dangerous direction for traveling this month. This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips. It is ok to take a walk or move around the city or close to it in the Southeast direction.

Auspicious Days In July 2022

July 13th and 25th are good dates for starting long-term affairs. The projects started on this date do not promise rapid development, but they will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Rooster.

July 15th is a good date for official openings, signing deals or contracts, making agreements, and purchasing a property. However, this date is not suitable for those born in the year of the Boar.

Days With a Higher Risk of Getting Viruses And Other Contagious Diseases

July 14th and 26th – during these dates, it’s easier to get a disease. Therefore, make sure you’re being extra cautious these days, as there is an increased risk of getting infections and viruses!

Inauspicious Days In July 2022

July 11th, 18th, 23th, 30th, and August 4th are unfavorable dates to start important things. They bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

July 16th and 28th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete old cases.

August 6th is “Exhausting Day”. The energy potential of this day is very weak. Therefore, try to avoid any big activity on this day.

Feng Shui Astrology For July 2022: Check Out Your Bagua Sectors

bagua image

If you are new to Bagua, make sure to read my articles:

Feng Shui Bagua: 8 Aspirations

The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?

According to Feng Shui astrology, each of the nine sectors of your house is influenced by a certain type of energy. This energy changes from month to month, from year to year. In this particular article, I will not be talking about the annual chart but focusing on the energy influence of the month.

Now let me share with you Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022!

Center

The central part of the house brings wealth luck, good fortune, and intellectual prowess in July. Activate your luck by placing the Jade Emperor Windchime here. However, the overriding annual chi of the 5 Yellow obstructs good luck and can cause health problems. Therefore, make sure you protect yourself by placing the Supremacy of Heaven Plate, the Heart Sutra Pagoda, and the Wu Lou with Joyous Cranes here.

Northwest

The Northwest sector brings accidents, violence, risk of money loss, and betrayals this month. At work, office politics can become a problem if your office is located in the Northwest corner. Be careful of the people you are working with this month. To suppress the negative influence of this sector, place the Anti-Robbery Plaque here and carry the Kuan Kung on Horseback Anti-Betrayal Amulet.

West

Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022 promises a prosperous month to the residents of the West sector and those whose front door is facing the West. To activate prosperity energy in your house, display the 100 Blessings Energetic Deer in this sector. However, remember to protect your West sector from the annual Loss Star by displaying the Anti-Robbery Plaque here.

Northeast

Feng Shui astrology for July 2022 promises good fortune, commercial success, wealth, promotion, and career luck to those residing in the Northeast rooms. Activate your success luck by displaying the Completion Horse in this sector. If you play in the stock market or take any kind of gamble, display the Wealth Lock Mini Plaque in the Northeast corner of your office or in the Northeast sector of your house (or living room).

South

Feng Shui astrology for July 2022 promises an excellent month to those residing in the South rooms and whose houses are facing the South direction. You will have career advancement and leadership luck this month. To activate the lucky energies of this sector, display the New Victory Banner here.

North

The North sector gets afflicted by the Illness Star, sapping the energy of those who reside here. If your bedroom is located in this sector, make sure you display the Wu Lou by your bedside and carry the Stay Healthy Amulet at all times. Pregnant women should consider moving to another bedroom this month.

Southwest

Feng Shui Astrology for July 2022 promises a quarrelsome month to those residing in the Southwest rooms or whose houses are facing Southwest. The energy of this sector brings conflicts, gossip, arguments, and even legal entanglements. To neutralize the quarrelsome energies, display the Magical Cosmic Apple here. Also, remove anything that makes too much noise from this sector (windchimes, TV, stereo, etc.).

East

The East is favorable for studying and writing this month. This sector can also help attract noble people, patrons, and mentors. Also, it can attract investors to your business. If you have an office in this sector, it may bring you promotion luck. To activate your success luck, display Feng Shui Dragon Carp with 3-Legged Toad Mini Plaque in the East sector of your house.

However, if your bedroom is located here, there is a possibility of romantic scandals caused by the presence of a third party and emotional stress due to relationship problems. To protect your relationship, display the Marriage Lock in the East sector of your house.

Southeast

The Southeast part of your house is a very dangerous area this month! If you and your family spend lots of time here, you will find everyone becoming stressed and short-tempered this month. It also increases the likelihood of sickness, accidents, and misfortune. Try to avoid spending time in this area if possible. To suppress the misfortune energies, display the Heart Sutra Pagoda and Wealth Lock Mini Plaque here.

Feng Shui Astrology For July 2022: Bonus Tip

For sectors of the home where good energy resides, it is excellent to activate with plenty of noisy activity. Have the radio, TV, or fan placed here to churn up the energy so there is a good level of noise. Also, it is very favorable to install brighter lights in these sectors. Moving the energy in these ways will encourage yang chi to manifest to your advantage.

Abundance Haircuts In July 2022: Good And Bad Days To Cut Your Hair

Published

on

Abundance Haircuts In September 2021 Image

Abundance Haircuts is a sutra based on the Tibetan calendar. It reveals the negative consequences of cutting your hair on the bad days and the incredible benefits of cutting it on the good days. Dates of Abundance Haircuts are calculated according to extremely complex formulas by experienced Feng Shui Masters.

Most people in the Western world have never heard about abundance haircuts. While for Eastern people, it’s not a new practice. This article will share this powerful sutra and give you a calendar for abundance haircuts in July 2022, with good and bad days for haircuts. Pay attention to what day you’re picking for your next hair appointment – only choose good days for abundance haircuts in July 2022.

Why Is Hair So Important?

Since ancient times, people have given hair a sacred meaning. It was thought that people could connect with the Universe through one’s hair. Hair serves as “antennas” and “guides” between our world and the world of Heaven. And so far, this knowledge has not lost its relevance. Hair connects us with Higher forces, cosmic energy, God, and Higher consciousness. By connecting through the hair to the Cosmos, we can fill ourselves with the energies of abundance and health.

Good Days to Cut Your Hair In July 2021 image

There were many beliefs associated with hair; some of them have survived to the present day. For example: in any case, you should not get a haircut by yourself, as in this case, deformation of your energy field may happen, which can lead to health problems and energy loss. It is also not recommended to get a haircut on the days of a lunar or solar Eclipse: the hair can suffer, weaken, and lose shine and volume.

What Are “Abundance Haircuts”?

It has long been known that there are days when it is especially favorable to cut hair. Among these days, there are days of “Abundance haircuts.”

Abundance haircuts are a special ritual to attract abundance flows into your life. It is good to say abundance affirmations and mantras on this day. So you will strengthen the ritual haircut and make it a more effective and efficient force.

Here are examples of the mantras:

  • For wealth and abundance: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA BASU PUSHTIM KURU SOHA
  • Mantra for vitality and life force increase: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MARITSE YE TSE BHRUM NRI DZA SOHA
  • For fame, power, and charisma: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE BODHI CITTA SOHA
  • Mantra for health and longevity: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA AYUR PUNYE JNANA PUSHTIM KURU YE SOHA
  • For magnetism and attractiveness: OM TARE TAM SOHA

If you are not a mantra practitioner, you can use affirmations instead.

Examples of abundance affirmations:

  • I deserve to be abundantly happy and healthy!
  • My abundance is constantly growing!
  • I always have money for everything I need!
  • Money comes to me easily and fast!
  • I’m grateful for my abundant life!

Spiritual Alchemy: Transmuting Into a Higher Version of Yourself

Published

on

spiritual alchemy image

Spiritual Alchemy is a mystical practice that seeks to free the soul from its attachment to matter. It is an ancient and traditional practice that aims to offer spiritual transformation and growth, yet it has no interest at all in material growth.

Spiritual Alchemy traces its roots in medieval times, where the goal was to obtain gold. At that time, Alchemy was practiced by people who wanted to transform base metals such as lead into gold. The idea behind this was to amass more wealth.

Today, the practice is used to achieve:

  • Personal contentment;
  • Self-awareness;
  • Harmony;
  • And liberation from the inauthentic parts of your life.  

Simply put, the goal is to achieve self-actualization and spiritual rebirth. Let’s have a more detailed look at the concept of Spiritual Alchemy below.

The Stages of Spiritual Alchemy 

There is a journey people go through to achieve their spiritual rebirth. It is essential to know that everyone’s spiritual journey is different. Therefore, the stages of spiritual Alchemy may vary slightly from one person to another. 

Stage 1: Calcination

shadow archetype image

This first stage of spiritual Alchemy is also called the black stage. The black represents chaos in which we have buried ourselves. Calcination involves eliminating parts of our lives that prevent us from attaining our happiness. It also entails identifying the elements that no longer serve you and burning them into ashes. 

People focus on being perfect rather than truly happy in the modern world. These societal standards prevent people from exploring themselves authentically.

In the calcination stage, we begin to break free from:

  • Self-doubt;
  • Fear;
  • Self-sabotaging tendencies;
  • Pride;
  • Arrogance;
  • Ego.

Liberating yourself from these tendencies allows you to explore what you are underneath the cover – the authentic you.

Calcination also involves detaching ourselves from world attachments such as the desire for wealth, power, and identity. Note that these are not bad things. However, to achieve spiritual rebirth in occult sciences, you must know where to draw the line.

Stage 2: Dissolution

This second stage involves dissolving the ashes into the water in occult sciences. 

Dissolution involves not associating yourself with the inauthentic you. You have already freed yourself from elements of self-doubt and pride. It is now time to observe the negative and positive traits objectively. 

At this stage, we are more objective. You can therefore pinpoint how your actions affect you and others. In this stage, you can also notice how avoidant you have been. For instance, many people avoid being themselves and hide in alcoholism, codependency, workaholism, social media, gambling, sex, or TV binging.

This stage is also often triggered by severe life events such as divorce, job loss, death, or bankruptcy. We describe this stage as one that allows you to stop, smell the roses, and pay attention to what you are doing. 

Stage 3: Separation

Emotional Healing From Narcissistic Abuse Clear Boundaries Image

The separation stage is written in the air element. The first two stages are associated with fire and water.

In a mystical sense, this stage can involve separation from your thought processes or emotional trigger responses. This separation process allows you to distinguish authentic essence from acquired personality. This is a very liberating stage as it allows you to come free from resentment towards yourself.

Separation is a very satisfying stage where we free ourselves of resentment towards ourselves and others. Liberation from our negative emotions allows us to become more aware of our true feelings. However, the separation only occurs when we no longer identify with the character we have been playing and get in touch with our true selves. 

Stage 4: Conjunction

The first three stages let you get rid of the inauthentic self. What happens to the authentic parts of you that remain? 

You put them into great use in the conjunction stage. In this stage, we combine the tiny bits of our true self to form one harmonized self. This is coming together under the earth element as it is an embodiment process that supports the materialization of the spirit.

In this stage, you begin to feel harmonized in body and soul but still able to point out the different strands that make you a whole.

Stage 5: Fermentation

Dopamine happiness hormone image

This is the beginning of spiritual rebirth. Fermentation describes the decomposing of one’s old self and the renewal of your new true self. The first four stages involved discarding inauthenticity and harmonizing authenticity. However, this stage involves now basking in our authenticity. We can link this stage to a rebirth of the phoenix from its ashes.

This stage can be categorized into two:

  • Putrefaction – the decaying of our former selves
  • Spiritualization – relieves us from the old world and allows us to see life from a new perspective

It is a stage accompanied by inner peace and contentment. 

Stage 6: Distillation

So what next after going through the spiritualization phase? It is time to integrate the spiritual life and make it more permanent. Distillation is a level of purification that furthers the cleansing within ourselves. This purification process results in inner solid transformation and peace. It is a stage where you now understand your spiritual rebirth, self-realization, and enlightenment. 

Stage 7: Coagulation

7 stages of spiritual alchemy image

This is a stage where you have finally broken free from your mind. Here, you are connected to your soul and higher consciousness. This is like the meeting point of two complete opposites, such as hell and heaven or life and death. At this stage, the core of your existence is self-awareness; we are one body with our spirit. 

However, you must note that we are not separate from the physical universe at this stage. We are one with the spirit but still a reflection of the physical universe.

The Bottom Line

Everyone’s journey is different but will somehow shape itself through the seven stages. These spiritual alchemy steps are a great way to build a new self. The idea behind Alchemy is that you can transform something into something more valuable. Just like the foundation was to transform metals into gold, you too can transform into a higher version of yourself. In addition, letting go of the burdens that hold you back will help you achieve the highest level of spirituality.
