Is your partner, friend, or family member a highly sensitive person and you want to help them in any way?
If you are not sure please check this article before to know and understand the traits and reasons of sensitivity.
Highly sensitive people or empaths have open energetic fields which can cause them to feel anxious, angry, easily drained,… They can pick up the emotions of other people around them and they don’t even know or understand what is happening.
You might want to help them to feel better, so there are 13 things you can keep in mind when they don’t feel like themselves:
1. HUG THEM WHEN THEY GET ANXIOUS
Calmly ask them first if they need a hug when you notice them being sad or anxious. All they might need at that moment is maybe a bear hug, but without other questions, guessings, statements,… Just a long silent hug.
2. ASK THEM WHAT THEY NEED AT THAT MOMENT THE MOST
If you feel like you can help and you are calm, ask them what would they need at that moment the most. Don’t try to give them advice because they probably feel very different than you and when emotions are heightened they usually can’t act on them at that moment. They probably won’t even accept your ideas because they are too disturbed or have a very negative mindset at that moment.
3.TAKE THEM TO NATURE NEAR WATER
If they will accept your idea of going out into nature, that would be great! Take them near the water source if possible. Water transmutes negative energy, it calms down negative emotions, and it’s like deep healing. Bring them to the nearest river, creek, waterfall, lake, or even a beach if that’s possible. Because sea salt is also a big transmuter of negative energy it’s indeed a great idea to choose the seaside.
4. GO FOR A BRISKY WALK
If they aren’t feeling too anxious and triggered take them to the nearest woods for a brisk walk if you have a chance. As well as water, woods are awesome transmuters too and will absolutely help them to calm down a little bit. If you are down to the next level of experiencing nature, hug a tree! Especially oak trees; these can suck negative energies out of your body.
5. UNDERSTAND THAT TO HEAL YOU MUST FEEL
You might not be aware of this statement because they taught us very different about emotions. It is very much important to understand that all emotions that we are feeling are trying to show us something, to help us see something. They are not bad as they taught us and we must teach ourselves to not avoid them. They can occur because that person is going through something and their energies are cleansing because they are letting go of something. They might be through some trauma resolving and all emotions underneath are coming on the surface. Ask them about that and try to understand.
6. COOK THEM A PLANT-BASED MEAL
Food. But try to choose plant-based this time and if possible organic. Plant-based means no dairy or meat included. And especially try to avoid processed and fast foods. Diary and meat are not such high vibes foods, so if you want them to feel better as soon as possible blend them a tasty smoothie of yummy colorful salad! Plant-based foods help us lift our energy! If you choose meat or dairy in a meal, try blessing it with love and healing to transmute lover vibrations. Try it, it works! You can do the same with water or other drinks as well :)
7. LEAVE THEM TO TAKE A NAP
Sometimes all you can do is leave them alone so they can take a nap after they are drained of all energy. They will probably need a long nap to recharge themselves. Ask them if that’s what they need and make sure to not bother them for some time.
8. PREPARE THEM THE C VITAMIN DRINK
You probably think vitamin C is an immune booster, but it’s also a brain booster! The one can actually help reduce anxiety! So pour that freshly squeezed lemonade into glasses and enjoy!
9. TRY NOT TO CHANGE THEM & TRY TO ACCEPT THEM AS THEY ARE AT THAT MOMENT
When it comes to emotional outbursts, what you can try to do is to accept them as they are at the exact moment and just let them be. Don’t try to change them, just accept the situation and give them permission to really feel what they feel. This will help them so much because they probably are used to be rejected by others because of these intense emotions. They will appreciate you so much if you will come to them with this understanding and acceptance.
10. KNOW THAT ALL EMOTIONS ARE OUR TEACHERS
All emotions are our teachers and are trying to tell us something and I mentioned before. So you have to understand that everything that occurs and comes to the surface, event if its anger, sadness, jealousy,.. everything is being a life lesson for them, or even for you too!
11. LEAVE THEM BY THEMSELVES IF THEY NEED TO BE
Leave them alone if they really need to be left in peace. Sometimes is just that, they need to figure it out by themselves.
12. UNDERSTAND TRIGGERS
The trigger is the invitations to go inside and heal. These people are even more affected when triggers occur. Triggers usually appear when something happens that sets off the memory or a flashback and it’s taking you back to where your original trauma has happened.
13. PREPARE THEM SALT BATH
This idea is one that I love so much! This is probably one that will help immediately.
