4 Signs You Are Picking Up Collective Energy

This article is for all my empaths out there who can feel everything. Being an empath is a gift, but often it can feel more like a curse when you do not know how to use this superpower. Then we add in the state of the planet who is going through her own awakening, and all these energies intensify.

As a spiritual healer, I've realized three powerful questions that you can ask yourself to  help you realign and find your way back to your purpose.

This is what I call collective energy, which is defined as energies that emerge from macro-level events and affect the collective. It is common for empaths to feel these first, and when not aware, it can also feel like you are being yanked around by these energies.

It is nearly impossible to be energetically sovereign when you don’t have energetic awareness. Because of this, it is then common to get confused if the feelings you experience are yours, others, or the collective.

The best way to know if these energies are coming from inside of you or outside of you is to know these four signs:

1. Feeling Overwhelmed and Unmotivated

Even when things seem pretty good in your world, do you still feel an inexplicable heaviness or lack of motivation? This overwhelming sensation can indicate that you are absorbing the collective energy around you. Recognizing this pattern can help you take steps to ground yourself and separate your energy from the collective noise.

2. Buzzing/ Sizzling Sensation in Your Body After Being in Public

This physical response is a sign that you are highly sensitive to the energies around you. Your body could be reacting to the influx of collective energy, which can be draining if not properly managed, especially after spending time in crowds, or just a public space!

3. Growing Need for Solitude

You find yourself craving more alone time than usual and an increasing need to be with just yourself. This is a natural response to the overload of collective energy. Solitude can provide the space you need as an empath to let your energy clear out. The physical space actually allows your aura to open up, release the excess and recharge to recalibrate your energy. This alone time is imperative to honor as an empath, as it allows you to return to the world with renewed strength and clarity.

4. Emotional Rollercoaster

You are experiencing sudden and intense emotional shifts that seem to come out of nowhere, then you may be picking up on the energy of others. One moment you might feel joyful, and the next, you are overwhelmed with sadness or anger. These emotional fluctuations can be a sign that you are tapping into the collective emotional currents. Being aware of this can help you discern between your emotions and those of the collective, enabling you to better navigate these changes.

If you do find yourself in any of these scenarios, you can just always bring yourself back to your center by asking, what am I feeling right now? Then tune into you, allow yourself to show you what is there.

Follow up with more questions like, "where is this coming from, what is this connected to, what is the message for me in this?" As this can help you get a deeper insight into what may be happening within.

After you have more self awareness and you know where you stand it is easier to then know when you have picked up these collective energies.

With these massive changes happening in our physical 3D human experience, because of the collective shift in awareness, I just want to remind you that you are the owner of your energy. It all starts with you.

The biggest way to change, create better boundaries and learn how to best use your gift of empath lies within you. No matter what is going on in the world or around you, it is up to you to face your own shadows and fears that arise within the collective. The only thing you have true power over is YOUR response.

Recognizing these signs is the first step in managing your energy more efficiently, which will help you maintain your well-being. By cultivating energetic awareness and setting better boundaries, you can ensure that you remain sovereign in your energy, no matter what is happening around you.
