I'm new to this site (and to knowing I am an empath) and I just want to ask if anyone has advice on surviving the Mercury retrograde?
During the last retrograde in February I got attuned to reiki, and the combination left me feeling like I belonged in an asylum. It was a new emotional/psychic crisis every day and I had no idea what to do. I felt like I couldn't trust my gut or my feelings anymore, and sometimes I felt I was losing myself. I was much better and more stable after the retrograde ended and I adjusted to the attunement, but another retrograde just started on Monday and I'm not feeling so stable anymore.
This morning I cried when I got to my office after being on a packed train for just 20 minutes. While on the train I felt so much anger, frustration, sadness...it was a lot to deal with for only 8am! I was even convinced for those 20 minutes that my boyfriend and I needed to go on a break until I got my spiritual self into shape, as I spent the last two days picking fights with him for no reason. He has been so patient and understanding throughout the last few months, and he was able to bring me back down off my ledge once I got to work, but I need to learn how to handle this on my own. I don't want to push my loved ones away or take my problems (or other people's) out on them.
Does anyone have experience with this issue, or advice on how to deal with it?
