I get so angry grocery-shopping...

I get home and it hits me all at once - irritability, fatigue, and anger. Even at the nicest grocery stores, people are angry at the high prices, their own poverty -and it's contagious.

I can't afford a personal grocery shopper. Any ideas for cloaking myself from this nastiness?

Shop later in the evening. :) There are usually less people there then, so traditional methods of grounding/filtering/sheilding work better. I don't mean like 5-6pm when everyone gets off work, I mean like 8-9pm if you can. This is something I discovered once I began working thirds as it changed my whole schedule. Also early in the morning like 6am works well too. I do realize some stores aren't open at those times and for those I'd recommend showing up right when they open or close. Good luck and I hope this helps! :)

Emmy, that's a great idea and I do shop at odd hours when I can. I don't always have that choice, though. Thanks!

Try the exercise in Thriving As An Empath before you leave the house!

It has worked for many of us!

I don't know the history of the properties I shop in, but I usually buy groceries at a natural grocery. The vibes are nicer than the local superstores. Walmart is out of the question - it has horrible energy.

Headphones have always been my life saver. I have music downloaded on my phone so when I go into the store, I plug in the headphones and kind of retreat in my own little world as I'm shopping. It's so much easier to tune everyone else out that way:)
