Stopping Empath Persecution

Posted by on Apr 14, 2018

I didn’t understand why I found myself in the same spot repeatedly. The place where you try to make things better for others but get persecuted for doing so in the end. If you are an Empath, you must know that boundaries don’t come easy to you. In fact, you may find that you get sucked into others problems quite easily. You begin to take on other people’s feelings and your sense of self gets lost. You think that others problems are your own and you set out to fix them. What happens on many occasions is you feel responsible for fixing others problems and begin to search for solutions to help others. I have experienced this recently where I got sucked into others emotions and failed to recognize that they were not my own. I lacked boundaries in that I was unable to pay attention to my own needs while letting others be in their own feelings. Instead I began to think of solutions for their disturbed feelings as the truth was I took them on as my own. I presented my recommendations to the Leader to ease the uncertainty others felt, as well as to ease my own discomfort in being part of a spiritual group whose actions did not match what it projected. Instead of recognizing my intentions for wanting to make things better, I was persecuted for doing so. I was booted out the door along with my recommendations with many inaccurate labels to describe me. How dare I try to better someone else’s vision? Herein lay my mistake. A mistake common amongst many Empaths. As an Empath, we fail to have strong boundaries. We fail to recognize when something is not our problem to fix. We fail to walk away from situations that don’t align with us. We fail to take care of our needs first before we try to meet the needs of others. We fail to walk away from the people who create emotional unease for us. Instead we pour our energy into creating balance when it had nothing to do with us in the first place. So, what can an Empath do? We must recognize how we feel as an individual and not focus on the collective’s feelings. We must recognize when our intuition tells us something is out of alignment. We need to stop fixing things for others, and practice self love which may include walking away. We must be able to accept the sadness that will ensue if we choose to leave a toxic situation. However, we must recognize the sadness is only because of our innate nature that strives for harmony with all. We must learn that we must not insert ourselves into another’s story. If a story playing out doesn’t suit us, then we must walk away and focus on creating our own harmonious story. It is not an easy road travelling as an Empath, as it can be both a curse and a gift. The gift is, we can connect with others in deep ways that can not be taught in a school. Empaths are in tune with the “empty” space that binds us all. In this space, incredible magic can be experienced through a sense of oneness. The curse is when an Empath can not recognize where she begins and where she ends. When she is not aware that the unspoken information she is absorbing is not her own, she may turn reactive and become unbalanced. This is when she must find balance within herself, and remove all that disturbs her peace. Being an Empath does not mean to be a sacrificial lamb for the benefit of others, it...

Why Heal Before Sickness?

Posted by on Oct 27, 2017

What if healing wasn’t meant for healing sickness but was meant for optimal being? What if consciously healing yourself before you were defined as sick allowed you to do and be life from your full potential? What if healing first allowed you to bypass sickness? Would you be curious to know how healing could help you become the greatest version of yourself before you get hit with an illness that stunts your evolution? Most of us have experienced some degree of trauma in our life. Perhaps you were bullied or ridiculed as a child, or had to give up a pet you loved, or felt abandoned because your only best friend moved away and you never said your goodbyes. Perhaps you were abused by a parent figure, or rejected by the one you were madly in love with. Maybe you were robbed of something precious to you, or betrayed by someone you trusted, or endured some violent attack which you still can not comprehend. Perhaps you haven’t experienced any significant trauma, but you also haven’t experienced being supported and encouraged in your life. Maybe you felt like you had a purpose or a mission in life but never quite figured it out because you were not provided the environment you needed to encourage your growth. If you experienced anything like this in your life, how did it leave you feeling? Were you left feeling fear, sadness, shame or feeling not good enough? Were you left feeling alone, undeserving, hurting deep inside leaving you no other choice but to numb it all? Did you settle for being mediocre, living an average life, because you didn’t feel worthy of being anything more? The truth is, healing is not just for the sick, healing is for anyone who has locked away their authentic expression under layers of illusions. Healing is uncovering the lies you have told yourself about who you are.. Healing is releasing all the emotions that are stuck within each trauma you have experienced and buried away. Healing is supporting your soul mission and allowing your full expression. Healing is walking in your truth with unbreakable strength. Healing is raising the bar and becoming that which you truly are. Healing is never backing down in fear. Healing is being resilient in any storm, being guided by your innate wisdom, and allowing yourself to bloom into your greatest expression. Just like every seed follows its divine programming to allow its most beautiful expression to unfold, healing yourself allows you to follow your divine programming into your most beautiful free expression in the world. Why wait for disease to seek healing when you can heal now and be free to be authentically you? Jas Dhillon Transformational Healing Coach      ...

Being Present in Grief

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017

    Being present with another is a gift like no other. A gift for yourself and the other. As I grieve the passing of my mom I have been forced to ponder what it means to be here, now. Ironically, this morning when I asked the Wisdom of the Oracle to give me a message about my mom, I pulled the card, “Here and Now”. The oracle told me that my mom no longer lives in the past nor does she live in the future. She is NOW, fully present and whole. She is one with the Consciousness and IS, always. So what does it mean for me to be here and now? As messages of condolences pour in, some through social media, chats, texts, phone calls, flowers, and some in person, I am learning much about being present for another. Being present for another means being Love for the other whatever form it takes. Love can be felt through any form, and so can the lack of it. Being present means putting aside all else and tuning into the person you are sharing “space” with in the now. In this space you can connect with another at a deeper soul level. You feel them, hear them, accept them, support them, and hold love for them. Time becomes irrelevant in the here and now. There is nothing else more important, neither does anything else exist other than YOU and the OTHER. You just ARE. This space is magical, mystical, and feeds the Soul. Here there is healing, peace, and comfort. When you are present you gift yourself with YOU. When you bring You to the Other, and the Other is fully present with You then time stops. Together you become part of the Whole. You are no longer alone. You become one and all. Being present is meditation. It is being the faucet that is connected to the Source, allowing the flow to pour through you into the container that you are present in. I know that when I am present with my Mom eventhough she has left physical form, she is flowing love to me from Source that she is forever connected with.  I only need to enter this space.  When you are Here and Now, the Divine flows through you.

Broken Heart Transformed Into Art

Posted by on Jan 8, 2017

I am sure you have heard the speech Meryl Streep gave sharing her perspective on the “powerful” man sitting in the most important seat in America while mocking the disabled and many many more. It was fascinating to see how Meryl captivated and touched her audience just by voicing her authenticity. She spoke from a place that held meaning for her. This was a perfect example of the ways we have the power to affect others through the personal energy we hold. The energy she held was of courage, authenticity, expression, empathy, compassion, connection, and expansion to name just a few. When I listened to her I could not help but FEEL inspired by her courage, feel connection for all lives regardless of social status, race, abilities and or disabilities, and feel respect, empathy, and reverence for the role each individual plays. All this occurred simply by listening to several minutes of her speech. How we think affects how we feel, act, and speak. How we feel, act and speak affects those who interact with us. This is because we are all energetic beings and we interact with one another at an energetic level. Although I don’t know Meryl on a personal level, never seen her in person, and do not know her likes and dislikes, still in just a few minutes of listening to her she had a lasting affect on me.She ended her speech by stating something very powerful and beautiful. She mentioned how her dear friend would say “Take your broken heart and make it into art”. This to me illustrates the power of healing, transformation, and creation. Many of us have had our heart broken by people who ridicule us, use us, abuse us, disempower us, and make us feel insignificant, worthless, and devalued. Living with a broken heart is like dying daily, it seems pointless. When we are in this place we may feel like that’s all we got and can’t see the possibilities in our hopelessness. We give up and feel like life is too hard and meaningless and even become suicidal. We may become angry or enraged and act out destructively from this energetic space. The possibilities are endless. But what if this broken heart could actually be made into art? What if it didn’t have to be a downward spiral? What if there was something beautiful waiting to be birthed? Art is beautiful, inspiring, captivating, inviting, moving, connecting, and creative. An artist simply expresses that which is within them that feels true to them. An artist feels what is coming through them and allows it to move through them, the result is creativity. What if our broken heart is just shattered pieces that need a meaningful expression? Perhaps the more painful the experience we have, the greater is the expression locked up waiting to be freed. Perhaps all the pain we carry is only an indication of the emotional energy that is bottled up waiting to be freed. Perhaps we don’t have to stay in our brokenness, or erupt in destructive ways. Perhaps the broken heart can be made into art. The truth is the broken heart can be made into art. This is the art of transformation and creation. As we feel, and heal, we transform and create. We let go of the old energy, or better said we transmute the old energy. We begin the climb reaching higher and higher. We begin to feel more empowered, and start standing in our authenticity. We begin to inspire others while we create our art. Your life is a beautiful story waiting...

Turbans & Nail Polish don’t go together!

Posted by on Nov 4, 2016

Turbans & Nail Polish don’t go together! Do they?   I was in grade Nine returning back to school after Christmas Holidays. As I walked into my first class there was silence, gasps, exaggerated laughter, and dramatic reactions, and students falling off of their chairs as they caught sight of me. Before I left for holidays I looked like a “normal” Indian girl who had long dark hair, hoop earrings, and trying hard to fit into the high school scene. When I returned I was wearing a turban on my head, no jewelry, no make-up, and in plain clothes. Over the holidays my parents had sent me to a Sikh youth camp where I met many other kids, some of which are still good friends of mine. Together we learned about the Sikh religion, establishing a daily practice of prayer, meditation, playing musical instruments and singing Kirtin (singing sacred sikh chants). I remember the feeling of finding that which spoke to my soul. I found connection to something greater than myself. I found purpose and meaning. I eagerly adopted all the “inner work” practices, as well as the “outer appearance” practices. I felt I found the formula of being good! Herein lay the problem. I remember feeling proud winning the approval of my parents. I felt like I was the good child they always desired. I learned how to read Gurmukhi/ Punjabi within a month all on my own! I learned how to recite prayers, sing Kirtin, wear a turban and I became a fully baptized Sikh. I put my heart and soul into being a good Sikh, although I failed in some eyes. The day came when I had sang Kirtin in front of a house full of Sikh priests and families at a ceremonial gathering my parents hosted. I wore a turban, Indian clothing, and all the other traditional religious symbols Sikh’s wear, however, I was wearing something a little extra than prescribed. I wore nail polish on all of my nails. Little did I realize this would make me a Badass! As I walked down my hallway, I got stopped by one of the priests in my house. He pointed at my nails and said, “This is not good”. I silently walked away while processing what he said in my head. I examined how far I had come. I was a girl who couldn’t read Punjabi, couldn’t play a harmonium, couldn’t sing Kirtin, couldn’t recite Sikh prayers, never wore a turban, never participated in any religious ceremonies before this, and yet this Sikh priest could only see flaws in me. It felt disturbing. Something didn’t feel right. I realized then it was futile trying to be “good”, as being good depends on how others perceive you. The truth is no matter what you do there will always be those who find fault in you. In that moment I decided that I no longer would be good for anyone. What mattered was that I was good for myself! I invite you to examine your life. Where do you deny yourself for approval? Where do you hold yourself back while delivering what others expect? Where are you being “nice” or “good”, and for who? Where do you allow others opinions of you control you? Where do you care about the other more than you care for yourself? No matter what you do, whether it’s wearing a tuban, applying nail polish, sky diving, finding pokemon, or going dancing, do it because it makes you happy! Do it because it is what YOU want for YOU and not for an...
