@snoopy-24 grounding is going to be key. It sounds simple but it is easier said than done. But if you can remain grounded you'll still feel everything but you'll be able to chose how you respond.

I am a big fan of metals and crystals but they are not for everyone. If you smoke cigarettes I recommend ceasing as it can amplify what you feel making it harder to control.

If you're into meditation, yoga, or any kind of energy work those can help.

I also attend therapy. I do not share my gift with my doctor but we work a lot on being in the moment and mood regulation. Which is a great help.

Also diet can be very important. These are things I have worked on for years that can have really changed my life.

Hope this helps.

@tigerlily when I grid I do a whole perimeter. I haven't tried window sills. I'd be interested to know how that goes for you. Sometimes I do a circle around when I come home at the end of the day or when I am meditating. I find that helps me set the energy in my home too. I also place stones by the door once I'm in for the night.

Uncontrolled crying


Community

@layla I use grounding stones to help with the crying. They help remove me from the energy. At the very least with strong energy I am given the space to recognize it is not mine and then I can chose to accept it or not.

The stones I like are shungite and hematite. I wear them on two different necklaces. I also keep two shungite stones under my pillow when I sleep. I carry a hematite stone in each pocket so that I can hold them when I need a little extra help. To give the a boost I use astrophyllite. Although the last one can amplify things so I have to be careful with it. The stones I have are very small. On rough days I sleep with the necklaces still on.

I'm not sure if this will help with spirits but this is my experience with griding with crystals. I wanted to share this because you mentioned the room feeling depressing and stuffy and I understand that feeling.

To clear it out I used a selenite grid around my house. It gave the energy a very clean and calm feeling. I learned that the stones have to be cleaned fairly frequently. Other wise all the energy they absorb begins to fill the house. The great thing about that is that the energy feels better and better after each cleaning. I like selenite because it is an easy stone. It is great for shielding and absorbing unwanted energy for you. To clean the stones I used sage or water. I know people say don't use water with selenite, but the guy I get my stones from has never led me wrong and he say use water. I do and I haven't had any problems.

I work with shungute but I use it more for it's strong grounding capabilities.

Is it just me or are the birds acting differently


Community

I agree that normal kinda sucked.

I don't it makes you a bad person to want to keep the sense of calm that has strangely come out of all this panic.

I just want my rock shop and my favorite karaoke bar to open back up and I'm good.

How's the energy


Community

That sounds a bit like DBT. It's an approach to therapy that focuses on observation and mindfulness.

I did that for a while and it is a good approach.

Thank you. For myself I believe this is the best and most important time for me to work on myself.

I have been recently taught to meet the energies half way so to speak.

For example sadness has a similar feel to happiness. Or the feeling of being afraid versus feeling safe.

So when I'm met with a feeling of sadness I try to find something happy to focus on. As a way of softening the blow so that I can process the sadness.

I cant always do it. And it doesn't always last for long. But when I am able it's worth it. It just makes it easier for me to deal.
