Broke and needing some energy work :( Help!!!!
I am sorry to hear what you are going through. While reading your post I'm thinking this poor lady really needs to slow down her life and practice self-care. And then I scrolled down and saw that @zen-angel made some very good suggestions.
I would only add that what makes empaths so special, is also what also causes our downfall. And that is always wanting to care for and fix people without pacing our schedules and taking care of ourselves. As was suggested by others, slow down your life, take time for yourself to ground and do things that make you happy.
I would also add that when we empaths don't take care of ourselves and take on too much from our worlds, we start to break down physically. And a lot of that resonates as stomach issues since the solar plexus chakra is in that area and is an especially active chakra for empaths. It doesn't surprise me that you are having stomach bacteria issues as I have struggled with bouts of the same myself.
I also wanted to add that what you described as empath receptor insanity at the party, is also a side effect of your body, mind, and spirit being run down. When we are in deep need of rest and grounding, our empath skills will often heighten. And while part of that is kind of cool, you need to also realize that as it heightens you are overflowing with harmful energy and are close to a crash. And by crash I mean anxiety attack, psychotic episode, or illness. if you were a car engine your dashboard gauge would show you redlining. But all of this is preventable if you can watch the signs and know when you need to back off your schedule and take time for you to ground and clear that harmful energy out of you.
And one last note, try an experiment of not watching news or violent TV for a couple days. We empaths are really affected by the emotional things we see on the news that is often overhyped and exaggerated. Turn it off for a couple days and I believe you will notice that a good chunk of your worries will be gone.
