We Can Sense Negative Energy In Others

I’m sure a lot of you saw the headline in my post and immediately associated sensing negative ENERGY with PSYCHIC energy. Then this thought came to your mind: No one can sense negative energy or positive energy, what are you talking about?. Everyday I meet lovely people, either in person, social media or on different platforms from various walks of life. I was placed in the top 10 most viewed writers in Psychiatry last December, 2019 a title that I’m very proud of. I love being able to use what I have learned to help others.

Today’s blog post is about the ability to pick up negative energy from persons with negative or toxic personalities. Negative energy is toxic and can drain you both mentally and physically. Have you ever been around someone whose conversations are mostly negative? Every time you speak with them or are around them you either feel depressed, down or sad. You may not have sensed that this person is carrying around negative energy but somehow when you are with them you don’t feel comfortable at all. This is the kind of energy senses I am speaking about, although some people feel it more than others sometimes even immediately after coming in contact with these people so I have gathered a list to help them.

Stay Away From Negative People.

I always advise people to keep away from negative people, as they are likely to give off negative energy in the way they talk to you, the way they treat you, and the way they behave towards you. Negative people can drain you both mentally and physically. Some people have the ability to sense others energy in others, whether it’s negative or positive energy sometimes they are unable to tune out and needs assistance to be able to find balance.

6 Signs You’re Energy Sensitive:

Scientists have long been skeptical about the subject, but it seems the first evidence of the perception of good and bad energy is slowly emerging. The study of human chemosignaling is a relatively new field and there is much we still don’t know.

You are energy sensitive if you:

1. Have deep empathy for others: 

You can often spot the most energy sensitive person in the room when there is someone around who is hurt or upset.  Energy sensitive people are often the “first responders,” there to hold a hand, give a hug or lend a listening ear.  Energy sensitive people often feel other people’s emotions (and sometimes their physical pain too), and so they easily understand and empathize with people who are suffering. 

2. Emotional rollercoasters: 

Having a keen sense of vibrational energy often means that the high times feel very high but the low times feel very low.  Having some plans in place to help you raise your vibration can be very helpful,  especially during low times!

3. Addictions:  

Being energy sensitive means you “feel” a lot more than many people.  To avoid feeling low vibrational energy, these individuals may lean on substances like drugs or alcohol in order to numb out the pain of negative sensory input.  They may also have a proclivity for other types of addictions, like food, gambling or shopping.

4. Being an excellent judge of character:  

Energy sensitive people are often very aware of other people’s motivations, and many times they can “just tell when” someone is bad news.  This can be a very beneficial trait, as it makes one less likely to be conned or taken advantage of.

5. Possible introversion:  

Not all sensitive folks are introverts, but many often are.  It can be overwhelming to take on the emotions and feelings of other people, and so often energy sensitive people withdraw and seek alone time in order to stabilize. They are often likely to feel drained after prolonged social interactions.

6. Receiving signs:  

People who are sensitive to energy are much more likely to be aware of the signs the universe is sending to them.  They are more likely to find meaning in events and circumstances that most other people see as simply “coincidental.” 

As you can see, being energy sensitive is a bit of a double-edged sword.  Being attuned to vibrational energy allows one to have a deeper understanding of the universe, but it also can lead to a degree of overstimulation, and this can cause a variety of problems if left unaddressed.

If you think you may be energy sensitive, there are a number of things you can do harness the power of your gifts and cope with the struggles of sensitivity. Be mindful of the people you surround yourself with, and allow yourself to step away from toxic people, events and circumstances when you are feeling overwhelmed.  It is also very important to work toward self-acceptance, and learn how to love yourself and your gifts.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
