This is an UPHILL BATTLE for the spiritually sensitive in our world. It is no easy task dealing with difficult people or situations, but for the intuitive minded, and psychicly gifted people, it can actually be painful on all levels and physically impossible to sustain.
Sensitive people have a hard time not feeling the energy of the environments or people around them. Obviously we will all be faced with challenging situations and people in our lives, but spiritual people need to be very proactive and clear in how they want to respond to this energy.
You will need managing techniques for dealing with this if it is affecting you. For many people, therapists and life coaches can give exceptional advice. But if you want to go the extra mile, you can manage these situations on the spiritual plane as well.
For me, I really like using Reiki for this purpose. Many people know of Reiki as an energetic healing method, but it can also be sent to past, present, or future events, as well as parallel events and dimensions/ spaces. Sending this energy to the challenge you are confronted with can have a big impact even if invisible to the eye. I have always had some success with this method of handling challenging energetic situations. Not everything or everyone can or will change, but the energy around it can shift drastically using this modality.
It is essential in my opinion for spiritual people to also get to the heart of the matter. What is really going on? Why is the person being difficult with us? Why are we in this situation? What parts are we responsible for and what parts are we not responsible for dealing with? Only pick up your karma. Don’t take on the karma of another person! This may seem helpful but you are actually hurting your own spiritual development as well as the other person’s ability to grow. We are faced with various challenges for a reason, and while there are times we may help others, taking on their energetic karmic load is another story and not the same thing. It may be that you need to assess what is happening to see which is going on. Are you really needing to be involved in a situation or deal with someone difficult or is it that you’re trying to manage their karmic load?
Self reflect. Take some time to process and assess the situation or person you are dealing with. You may have to watch closely the phases of the moon, astrological events, and other factors that could be influencing the energy. There are also times the global vibration of humanity shifts and many people feel “unsettled.” Take all of these things into account. Decide your role. All of life depends on our participation or lack thereof. Be aware that even when dealing with challenges, you may be able to influence a lot more than meets the eye.
