Twenty-Nine: Terry’s Guide to The Galaxy-Falling in Love with the Universe

245f1291a81ca96de9f19c5afa0ee5ca

The Facebook Group-Collective Evolution released a video that

rocked my world and beyond. It was taken by NASA and showed

the largest image they had ever taken of The Andromeda Galaxy.

It was not only breathtaking but I couldn’t help but feel like a

minuscule speck in the cosmic world. There is so much out there that

we know so little about. I fell in love with my husband Terry for

many reasons, but one of them was his love of Astronomy. He had

a telescope that would travel with us on road trips like an old

campfire guitar. When driving along a desolate highway after a

day of hiking in the mountains he would pull over on some tiny

makeshift driveway-he would set up his scope and show me

the map of the sky. Calling out the constellations and focusing in

on the stars and galaxies. On a spectacularly special date on the

stellar calendar we would head out to a farmers field in the dark of the

night and lay down on the hood of his car and stargaze. Poetically

our love child was conceived under the harvest moon. We now

share these loves with our two children. It is a miraculous world out

there with so much majestic energy and mystery. Like a book that

has yet to reveal all of its stories.

Day Six: Life as a Seriously Sensitive Empath

Since childhood I have been a very sensitive and empathic soul.

When someone in my vicinity hurt I felt the sting of their pain within

myself. This sensitivity and ability to feel both the joy and pain

of others has been both an unbelievable gift and a wicked curse.

My work with high risk children and youth has been enhanced by this

part of myself, but it also makes this work very exhausting and hard

to release at the end of the day. I reach the point where I need to

isolate myself from the consistent buzz of others in order to recover

from the overwhelming intensity of these empathic energies that

constantly penetrate my soul. I rely on morning and evening

meditations to prepare me and release these experiences.

When I confide in friends about the challenge of living life as

an empath, they suggest blocking these energies and letting

go; I still have yet to learn how and wonder if this is the answer.

If this is the gift which I believe it to be, I need to continue to

embrace this gift, but in doing this, learn to navigate life with

it in a more balanced, less vulnerable direction.

How do you know you’re an empath?

Take this test to find out how empathic you are?

http://www.empathtest.com/

If you are very empathic there are resources on the test page that

you can utilize such as this grounding book:

There are also some recommended reading resources here:

When you wake up this morning think about the events of 

your day. Is there a point in your day where you can get out

in nature? If so make an effort to do this. Nature has a way of

rejuvenating any energies you may have lost throughout the day.

If you are able to be by a body of water, water is the most healing

tool for empaths.

1. Paint an abstract image on your canvas using whatever colours peak

your interest.

2. Modge Podge on the quotes, phrases, images that uplift your spirit.

3. Do a final coat of modge podge over the entire surface-this will protect your artwork.
