Nice to transmute collective energies of humanity or anything beamed at us.
But for our own true, emotions here's a thing to remember. All emotions start as a thought. Learn to watch your thoughts, as an observer, start to question why you have those thoughts and if they are of a type of how you like to see yourself...or what type of person you think you are...and you can begin to have some control over your emotions. This is easier said than done but well worth the practice.
As empaths, we are so used to knowing and being affected by others' emotions, I wonder if this tends to cause us to many times forget to clean up our own. Let me give an example from Gurdjieff's teachings on Self Observation:
From: "Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky"
The mistake is the confusing of self-observation with knowing. To know and to observe are not the same thing. Speaking more deeply, you may know you are in a negative state, but that does not mean that you are observing it.
A person in the Work said to me that he disliked somebody intensely. I said: "Try to observe it." He replied: "Why should I observe it? I don't need to. I know it already."
In such a case, the person is confusing knowing with observing; that is, he does not understand what self-observation is. Moreover he has not grasped that self-observation, which is active, is a means of self-change, whereas merely knowing, which is passive, is not. Knowing is not an act of attention. Self-observation is an act of attention directed inwards - to what is going on in you. The attention must be active; that is, directed. In the case of a person you dislike, you notice what thoughts crowd into your mind, the chorus of voices speaking in you, what they are saying, what unpleasant emotions surge up, and so on. You notice also that you are treating the person you dislike very badly inside. Nothing is too bad to think of him or feel about him. But to see all this requires directed attention, not passive attention. The attention comes from the observing side, whereas the thoughts and emotions belong to the observed side in your-self. This is dividing yourself into two.
