Myth: Empaths need to ground themselves
No, they don’t.
By now, I’ve worked with a few hundred empaths. More than ninety percent feel relief when they are told they don’t need to ‘ground’ themselves.
This is really quite simple: We’re not all meant to be ‘grounded’. In the same manner we’re not all meant to be engineers, electricians, or elephant riders. For some of us, being grounded is being tethered, restrained, yoked, leashed, stuck in the fucking corner with our nose to the wall. The notion that we must follow a cut & pasted template to experience life in any fashion is outdated.
If grounding doesn’t work for you, don’t do it. If you can’t ‘figure out how to do it’, stop trying to and see what the heck happens.
If yoga doesn’t do it for you, don’t do it. If meditation doesn’t do it for you, don’t do it.
Do what does do it for you. That’s it. Quit trying to cut & paste your experience into someone else’s template and find some freedom.
