Empathy is a gift. Well, I should state that developing skills in empathy can be a gift. While it is good that we can sense the emotions and issues of other people, we can also inadvertently absorb the emotions and issues of others. We may walk away from a conversation feeling angry and not know why. We may pass a stranger and then feel suddenly exhausted without apparent reason. One of the skills that you build as an empath is the ability to discern what issues belong to you and what issues you have absorbed from others. Once discerned, you will want to cleanse this other "issue" from your energy. Carry a black tourmaline. When you notice a sudden emotion or feeling that appears without reason, visualize it draining into the tourmaline. "Neutralize" this energy by storing your tourmaline in a container filled with rock or sea salt.
