An Empath's guide to the holidays

This is such a magical period of each year. It happens to be one of my favorite times of year- HOLIDAY SEASON.

This time of year can harbor many mixed emotions, especially from empaths. Because of this there are really 3 types of empaths.

3 ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ from the holidays.


During the holiday season, social media can be overwhelming due to โ€œ๐Ÿ“ธ perfectโ€ images curated & shared.

Here is a secret ๐Ÿคซ picture perfect moments happen but if you were to press record during Thanksgiving gatherings, there is more than meets the eye.โฃ


Not everything is bright and cheery.โฃ In fact, it can be quite the opposite for many empaths.


โœจ Empaths can read a room, instantly tell what kind of tone is set and act accordingly.โฃ


As an empath you fall into โ˜๐Ÿผ event category:


๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Wanting everyone who is attending to have a great experienceโฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Wanting everyone to feel included; even if this means baking special dishes or preparing dishes for only one person.โฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Look at small details to ensure everything goes smoothlyโฃ

๐˜Ž๐˜ถ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐Ÿ‘ฅ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Attend an event due to familial obligationโฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Try to feasibly attend each invitation sent so as not to hurt family members feelings.โฃ

๐˜š๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐Ÿ 

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Craves a relaxing evening free of family dramaโฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Or, can have hardcore FOMOโฃ


There is so much energetic & emotional information being downloaded and projected which leads to an Empath Hangover.โฃ


Whether you as attend, avoid or host an event, an Empath:โฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Truly tries to stay present and give ๐Ÿ’ฏ to be there.โฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ is the family Therapist for the drama.โฃ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Sees all of the raw emotions of packing families together in small quarters


There is โ˜๐Ÿผ thing that keeps an empath thriving during the Holiday Season though and that is: CONNECTION.โฃ

On a deeper level, connecting with people who mean something to us is crucial. Being an empath at the core is connecting to people. Plugging in to the energy that surrounds us and hopefully uplifts us. When we attend or host an event that have people that bring out negative energy it really can affect the mood of an empath.

So, with that being said ๐’๐€๐•๐„ ๐“๐‡๐ˆ๐’:

๐Ÿ“ ๐ญ๐ข๐ฉ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ ๐ž๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐๐š๐ฒโฃ

๐Ÿ’œ Hold on to that love for connection- just because you love connecting doesn't mean you have to avoid all events, but you are ๐Ÿ’ฏ in control of what conversations you partake in, who you sit with, and what you consume.

๐Ÿ’œ Set your boundaries/protection- call forth your guides, God, angels and ancestors to cover you from those seeking to drain you.

๐Ÿ’œ Take 10 deep breaths throughout the day when you feel overwhelmed or step out of a busy room to a quiet one.

๐Ÿ’œ Avoid consuming too much alcohol- by drinking too much, this allows your energy field to be easily available for energy Vampires.

๐Ÿ’œ Diffuse/apply an essential oil grounding blends

BONUS: keep your phone on do not disturb. Set it aside, take photos yes, but be present. If we tuck our heads in to the devices when others are around us, we give everyone else the power to influence our energy field.

What is your go to form of protecting or saving your energy as an empath?
