An Empath Can Never Have Too Much Space Between Them and Negative or Toxic People

As an Empath, it can be challenging to manage your energy, especially when you are in settings where there is a negative or toxic person or group of people. I have found that the simply moving away from the source of negativity does wonders for me.

What is a negative or toxic person you ask? Well, they tend to be people who have issues with maintaining relationships. They judge others, dwell on the past, have anger issues, they can never be wrong and tend to be brown-nosers.

These types of people like to be the center of attention even if it is negative attention. They will do anything to get you to pay attention to them and see their point of view even if they tell you lies or fib to you.  They also tend to leverage themselves into a position where people have but no choice but to pay attention to them.

Negative or toxic people tend to either stir up drama or feed off of others, and at times will even help it to manifest. They manipulate, they like to control, and they like to withhold information that can be a benefit to others. They also like to blame others for their circumstances.

Do you know anyone who fits this bill?? A relative? A co-worker? A hair-dresser? A class-mate? A stage mother? A sports parent? A drinking buddy?

It is nearly impossible to avoid negative or toxic people all together, especially at social gatherings, in the workplace, at school or church functions, or at your child’s extracurricular activities. As an empath, physical closeness can increase the absorption of a negative person’s feelings or energy. With that said, I have found it extremely effective to distance myself physically from such people. And by distancing I mean at least twenty feet or more. In cramped quarters, that isn’t always possible but in the least, it is helpful to avoid as much contact as possible with negative or toxic people. Give yourself permission to change where you are sitting, stand on a different side of the room, or take frequent breaks from the crowd if need be. Sure, it can come off looking anti-social or snobby, but I have let go of being worried about what other people think as my own energy, or how I feel physically, outweighs other people’s opinions. And really, if it is a negative person that one is trying to avoid, that person isn’t giving you a second (positive) thought anyway. Right?

Are You and Your Social Media Account(s) Putting Positive or Negative Energy out into the Universe?

How many of us take a step back and observe what we put out onto our social media accounts? How many of us stop and think before we hit the “like” or “share” button, or offer our two cents on in the comments section of someone else’s status?

I recently had someone suggest to me that social media isn’t real, therefore it doesn’t matter what we post. (It’s not real? Then why are we are all spending a crap-load of time on it these days?)

Another person I know tells me that she likes to post funny things, mean things and political things but that it DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING just because she posted it –  I disagree.

If you posted it, you put it out there.

Not just on social media.

Not just on the internet.

But you put it out THERE…into the Universe.

You see, we are all made up of energy and energy moves from one person to the next. Everything we do is filled with energy including your thoughts and actions. Energy can have different frequencies and those frequencies can change. Lower frequencies are negative, heavier energies, while higher frequencies are positive or lighter energies. Energy is always in constant motion and it continually can move from dark energy to light energy or from a lower or to a higher vibration.

no neg energyWhen you allow your focus or your attention to be on something, in this case images, comments, memes and articles…You are feeding the energy. So for example, if you if you are spending time posting something mean or negative, forwarding something mean or negative, and even if you are spending time reading something mean or negative that you have allowed in your news feed, you are feeding the negative energy. And better yet, you are keeping that negative energy alive by doing your part to feed it.

By spending time with “negativity” (even on your electronic devices) you are allowing negativity into your energy field. And in return, when you send out energy to the world around you, you are sending out negativity.  In the physical world, we experience the echo of the vibration that we emit. We attract “like” or similar vibrations to the vibration that we are putting out.

What if you take a moment and review the energy on your social media account(s).  Does your news feed have a negative tone to it? After you evaluate your news feed(s), I want to you take a look at the energy in your life right now. How are things in your household, personal or professional life? What about your finances or your love life? Are there any situations that continually pop up or don’t go away?  Are you on edge or angry a lot? Are you surrounded by negative relationships? What about anxiety or depression? Though there can be many reasons why you are suffering from one, the other, or both, negative energy has been known to bring on anxiety and depression in some. Do you feel like you are constantly trying to swim against the current of life? Have you injured yourself, had accidents or been clumsy lately? All of these things can be a reflection of negative energy in your life.

be postive vibeOn the flip side, if you want to attract more positive things into your life, start sending out sending out positive energy in lieu of negative. Did you know that *Love* is the highest frequency that we can emit? So in a world that needs more love, why do we spend time sending out, posting and commenting with negative energy? Why not vibrate at the highest frequency possible? I’m here to remind you to level up.  Everything a person puts out, even on social media (images, comments, memes, etc.) IS energy, just as one’s actions and words are energy as well.

Be responsible for the energy you put out.
