Earth empaths are a special type of empath who is keenly attuned to the natural world and all of the Earth’s changes. The beauty of a waterfall can exhilarate and energize these empaths, whereas the toxicity of air pollutants can make them feel sick, exhausted, or depressed. How do you know if you are an earth empath? You are highly sensitive to intuiting the Earth’s changes in your body. Sensually and energetically, you can feel the power of a thunderstorm, the loveliness of the moon, the warmth of the sun on your shoulders. What happens to the Earth is intimately connected to your body. The beauty and health of the earth nourishes and sustains you. The ocean and tides affect everyone, but especially you. The moon and the tide regulate menstrual cycles in women and sleep-wake cycles for both genders. You are sensitive to weather changes and the amount of daylight. Earth empaths may experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), becoming depressed in the winter when the days are shorter.

The earth, its elements, and the universe feel like family. The moon and stars have always been my companions. Since childhood, I’ve looked up at the heavens and felt that my true home was there. (One patient told me that she prefers stargazing as her “night life” instead of bars and clubs.) But, interestingly, I’ve found that empaths, like myself, who have a hard time adjusting to being on this planet, need to connect to the earth’s energy so that we can more fully inhabit our bodies. Learning how to do this (and not fighting it) is part of our healing.

The Earth loves you. You can feel it. If you’re an earth empath, that’s why you get so hurt, anxious or have health problems when she is harmed or destroyed. Your body is intimately connected to the Earth. You experience her changes as if they were happening to you. When the Earth is happy, you are happy. When the Earth is in pain, you are too.

Earth empaths may have premonitions about natural disasters or feel them intensely in their bodies as they are occurring. One patient told me. “I frequently wake up just prior to earthquakes. Then boom, it hits.” Another said, “Before earthquakes or volcanic eruptions, my body begins to shake. I feel ‘off,’ not on solid ground.” Another told me, “During the last tsunami, I awoke from a deep sleep in a state of agitation and dread.” An empathic friend said, “I felt like I was hemorrhaging,” as a response to a catastrophic oil spill. Similarly, try to be aware of how your body reacts during dramatic earth changes. Then you can put your feelings in context and practice more self-care when they occur.

As an Earth empath, you may also be sensitive to solar flares. These magnetic storms on the sun affect the magnetic fields around the earth and our bodies. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, and tornados appear to occur after intense solar activity. During these periods, you may experience headaches, mood swings, anxiety, or heart palpations. Studies have shown an association between solar flares and increased depression, anxiety, suicides, and episodes of bipolar disorder. Revolutions, riots, and unrest across the globe are associated with solar flares. Remember, the sun is responsible for life on earth. When it goes through changes, we feel it 93 million miles away. This experience is amplified for empaths.

To stay vibrant, you want to frequently connect with the Earth. Spend time in forests, by the ocean, or in the mountains where you can commune with the elements and feel at home. To deepen your bond with the Earth, eat clean, healthy, organic foods (even better, grow them yourself). A junk food diet separates you from the Earth because you’re not ingesting her energy. Regularly practice Earthing: lie flat on the earth to soak up her positivity and strength. Wade or swim in lakes, rivers, or the ocean. Gaze at the stars. Walk barefoot on the grass.

To intentionally communicate with the Earth, you can tune into her by asking, “What do you feel?” Then be open to any intuitions that come. Or you can use the Earth as an oracle, directly asking her questions about yourself or others. She will answer you though your intuition. Then follow her guidance.

In Native traditions, earth medicine represents the healing that nature imparts. Mother Earth is to be revered and cared for. As empaths, you can practice earth medicine by doing whatever you can to treasure our precious mother planet. This is part of your purpose, and a way for you to feel happy, healthy, and whole.

More on this upcoming eclipse’s energies.. NOT SLEEPING WELL. Either you, my fellow sensitive, are tossing and turning all night, not sleeping at all, or sleeping very little and feel completely rested. Know that the stronger you are feeling these energy symptoms I speak of, the more sensitive to the energies you are, the bigger step on your evolution (ascension) path you are currently taking whether you are conscious of it or not. Things are going one extreme to the next in your lives, right? The ebb and flow of the good times and the bad times are sending you on a roller coaster ride. Well it is Fair time in most American places and apparently the Universe feels we need a good ride. Why? To shake us up. WAKE US UP! Throw us around from the inside out so we can crack open and let our Light out. I promise you that it is your reactions to these intense bumps in the road you are tripping on that you are being tested on. The more you can stay centered and balanced in your personalized chaos (the ebbs), the longer the good times (the flow) will be before another ebb shows up, does this make sense? THIS IS FOR A REASON I WILL EXPLAIN AT LATER TIME. This is important, do not brush it off. PLEASE take these words to heart… This is the eleventh hour my friends and these ebbs you’re dealing with are rough I know! Life is throwing you in the middle of chaotic moments unique in the way that your Soul is showing you where your changes need to be. Spirit is shaking up the areas in your life that you need to reflect on, change, and let go to move on. These are no midterm tests, please know that they are final tests. Do you know what I’m saying? Do not worry if you feel you’ve ‘failed’ by choosing the same actions and paths as you have in the past, you’ll be given a retake of sorts, so hold on to your hats for another ride. Be aware and acknowledge these tests in the moment so you can make a conscious action NOT a habitual subconscious reaction. You are doing such a BEAUTIFUL job with yourselves working within to change things for your Highest good (or at least trying to, A+ for effort!) and I wish you all to picture how us as individuals with our changes make together a bigger and bigger group of, lets say “changelings”. Dont you see? If we are the change, we will change this world. Hold onto the Light and Love and shine bright in every moment of your lives! I am proud of you and I thank you, my brothers and sisters, for helping make this Shift happen.
