Keeping happiness is very important to our well being, of our loved ones, the people around us (okay, the world).

When we are happy, we become powerful to share more love to everyone.

Choosing to always be happy in most circumstances as much as we can could be hard. Maybe. But not impossible.

As vibrational beings, we all have positive energy in us and a great part of being happy is keeping our positive energy only to ourselves.

So as the saying goes, never let anyone steal your joy and always leave some positivity for yourself while we uplift others with us.

As much as I’ve become a happier unicorn now, there are very few quite less happy days at times.

Especially when others’ emotions and energies take a toll on me.

Oh the joy of being an Empath. Just kidding.

So how do we deal with being an Empath and still be happy? Here’s how:

1. Grounding.

My first thought about grounding was: “what?” “I have to stay in my room forever? Like a punishment?”

Only when I read further that I realized this meant making yourself energetically and spiritually secure.

This is done by breathing deeply and visualizing your feet as becoming thick strong roots with little roots.

Let these roots grow deeply anchored in the ground. The roots firmly reaching down way below the ground.

Doing this creates a stable energy that cannot be shaken by negativity. You can also try this 10 minute guided grounding meditation.

Another way is to just walk bare foot on grass for 30 minutes. Really feel the grass and ground underneath your feet.

Focusing on the solidness of the surface with our feet helps to feel in touch with our own body, emotion and energy.

2. Shielding.

You can create an invisible barrier to keep your positive energy and deflect other people’s energy away from yours.

Imagine all the negativity like a dark smoke vacuumed away from your body and let it go away from you.

Let the smoke disappear into the light. See yourself filled with bright white light all over and put yourself in a bright white light of bubble.

Here’s an effective Guided Shielding meditation you can do.

3. Sending away.

If you feel a sudden surge of sadness, tiredness or anger, quietly ask these emotion and energies if they are yours.

You would feel a sudden lift from your body confirming it’s somebody else’s.

Send it away peacefully through your mind. Afterwards, send in as much love and the brightest white light to yourself and everyone where you are.

4. Recharge.

Spend a few minutes by yourself. Do something that makes you happy. Put your headphones on and listen to your favorite positive music. Read a good book.

Watch fave music artists or comedians because feeling inspired and laughter are so good vibes.

5. Choose people and social media newsfeed.

Spend more time being with grateful, inspiring, creative, successful, abundant, loving and kind people.

Stay away from too much News and drama on tv and avoid horror movies. Fill your social media with happy people.

Find an inspirational and successful person to tune into. I highly recommend watching Kathrin Zenkina, Tony Robbins, Gabriel Bernstein and Abraham Hicks on YouTube.

These people have the kind of vibe that uplifts your mind and soul. They are life changing.

6. Always be Kind.

Everyone is in their own journey and if life lessons aren’t enough, the least we can do is to be compassionate with one another.

We can always be courteous or just let others be. We can always pray for others to overcome anything that they might be going through and send loving thoughts their way.

When we are kind we break and interrupt the bad energy. Send peace, happiness and all good wishes to others.

Smile or be encouraging. Share. When you make people feel good around you, it fills you up too.

7. Identify mindfully.

Know the people who drain you out and spend less time and proximity with them.

Keep busy, focused and excited with blissful hobbies or meaningful goals.

8. Detach.

Sometimes there’s nothing else we can do than just listen, give comfort and be encouraging. Life is too beautiful and precious to be drained by sad stories.

At the end of the day, we all go through our own journey. Truth is, pain and struggles are necessary for growth.

It is up to all of us how we process our life lessons.

As an Empath, I really can’t help but care and help out. Especially when I felt an emotional connection with my loved ones.

I would be doing most of the chores just to let people around me rest. By the time I go to my room, I’m too exhausted to clean my own room or write my novel. I’d be left feeling regret.

I figured I could do this emotional cord cutting and yes, sometimes it is for my highest good to not care too much.

Cord cutting is the act of removing any emotional connection between others and yourself.

This way you won’t be bothered by others’ actions to you that much. It is best to do this through this Cord Cutting Guided meditation.

As Shakespeare puts it, “To be or not to be? That is the question. I say to be. Yes to being a powerfully compassionate Empath!

It means we can transform emotions and energies into positivity. It is a gift of being able to make negativity disappear into the light.

There is power in weakness.

What used to break me is now teaching me to be compassionate.

To all of us out there, now that we have these steps to keep our happiness, we can fully serve the world at our best in our own simple ways.
