As someone who is just learning to live consciously as an empath, I am curious how others experience the flow of energy.
Let me be more specific.
I did a yoga practice today, the first in months; through out the practice I burped frequently; I have always belched uncontrollably during yoga~ now I am aware (or believe) it is the flow and shift in energy, and it's my body extracting energy from my body that isn't mine. I use to go to Yoga classes a few years ago at a studio, but stopped going after one class where I almost threw up during the class form so much belching. (There was a woman next to me in class who I got a strong anger energy from....but thought I was imagining it)
This has happened also after I've attended staff meetings with a variety of people, often when unexpressed emotions are in the room.
Does anyone else experience this or something similar?Is this common?
I have also experienced severe headaches seemingly out of nowhere; Like this morning, I got a jabbing sensation in my fore head and then aching in the back of my head and neck and shoulders. I was home alone, and shortly after the pain started I received a text form a man I am attempting to cut out of my life. Could the headache have been from him? (Our relationship is tenuous at best)
How can one tell if the body aches/head aches/belching are from some other energy source then my own? Is meditation and focus the best practice to learn what is mine and what is others?
What practices have you found helpful to help with the belching; it's often embarrassing and I am not really able to restrain it, (and honestly don't really want to) I find it is one way to 'let go' of what's not mine.
I do now use a 'key hole' visualization prior to staff meetings, and that has helped.
Any other ideas or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
I started yoga again today in hopes of learning how to discern between other energies and my own....I'm hoping it will work...
