Hoarding – An Empath’s guide to emotional junk.

Throughout my journey as an empath, (and an observant one at that), i have found that many of those who are also empaths, or exhibit high levels of emotional sensitivity, seem to have a common theme, a problem of letting go.

Whether this manifests internally, or externally, it appears that to be an empath, comes with the added worry of lack, and never having enough, therefore, holding on tirelessly, and often dangerously, to things that should be let go of, dropped off, and left at the station, so to speak.

This desire to hoard, and inability to release things, does not just extend to things that the empath enjoys, or prefers, and can also extend to things that the empath sees absolutely no use for, and things that are weighing them down.

Bad memories, painful experiences, emotional triggers, and resentment, are just but a list of things that the average person can drop far quicker than the empath, who wishes so desperately to keep everything so close to their heart.

It is in my humble opinion, and my metaphysical understanding of balance, that what ever exists internally, will manifest itself externally. Many empaths, including myself, have found ourselves at one point or another surrounded by items, clothes, and useless things that congest our living space, and even make it difficult for us to feel at peace in our surroundings.

This creates a very mirrored journal of what is happening for us internally at the time. Whilst our minds are scattered, and we are neglecting ourselves, we also neglect everything in our surroundings.

We neglect to realise that so many of the things that we are holding onto, we do not need, and actually have no use for. Clothes, from 5/6 years ago that hardly fit anymore, will find themselves lovingly wrapped up in the corner of a shelf in an empaths bedroom. Why? Simply because the empath is so sentimental, and so sensitive to abandonment, that they perceive that ridding themselves of this item, will somehow invalidate the time period in which it was born, including the memories, persons, and experiences attached to the specific garment, or thing.

It is our fear of loss, and being lost, that often cause us to hoard that which no longer desires to be hold, also creating an air of stagnant energy, that tends to repel newness, whilst collecting unwanted dust within our spaces. Much like the dust that collects within us when we refuse to part with the old, the outdated, and the unwanted.

Regularly cleansing your space, ridding yourself of old items, and changing the arrangement of your room, (living area), will allow you to keep level headed, clear minded, and open to new possibilities whilst you are struggling with transition, or even struggling with yourself.

Try packing a bag of things to give away to charity. This way you do not have to worry about your beloved items laying alone in a ditch somewhere. You will know that somebody else will appreciate them, and cherish them, exactly in the same ways that you once have. The energy of perpetual flow, in motion.

If you still find it difficult to rid yourself of certain items, see if you can imagine yourself using them, wearing them, or needing them in the near future. If you cannot, and you cannot remember the last time that they were of use to you, then it is best to let go.

Also, try to move the position of your bed, perhaps closer to the window so that the healing sun-rays hit your pillows, and your sheets, even whilst you are away.

If you have the room, move the positioning of your wardrobe, television (if you own one – though it is best not to sleep with one in the room), and try to completely transform the former contents of your room. It is best to position things in a way that lets the most light into your room, lighter, paler colours are also encouraged for your walls, as this creates the illusion of a wider, more opened space.

Aromatherapy is a brand of therapy dependent on the belief that certain scents have a profound effect on our mental, psychological, physical and even spiritual well being.

This form of therapy may be used in conjunction with traditional methods, (such as medicinal therapy), or may be used as an alternative form of medicine therapy.

I have found that a combination of both is most successful for persons suffering from severe, or persistent mental disturbances.

Different incense smells entice different reactions, so it is important for the buyer to ensure that they do not have any predisposed sensitivities to incense smoke, or lung irritation.
Visual stimulation is also very important in cognitive functioning, so I typically provide products that are the colours green, blue, and purple, as these pertain to heart chakra healing, calmness, and spiritual development.

In my personal experience, aromatherapy has enhanced my ability to relax, assisted me in meditation, and provided a backdrop, along with music for me to tap into an altered state of mind, perfectly suited to writing, and creative art production.

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position. To book one of my services, and allow me to guide you back to the soul, email me via cindyanneh-bu@hotmail.co.uk I offer dream interpretation, tarot reading, therapy, numerology readings, and see through the eyes of the lover..
