To an Empath, other people’s energy transmissions can feel like an assault, invasion of space, and cause a sensory overload that unravels critical balance in a backward spiral of thoughts and emotions. It becomes difficult to tell what is theirs versus what belongs to other people. Invasive thought patterns and unsettling emotions can send an Empath on a roller coaster of confusion, depression, anger, and instability. This is not mental illness. This is not a phase of “crazy”. This is a bi-product and set of symptoms that occur when an Empath’s Auric Field is too open.
An Auric Field, or Energetic Body, is an energy field outside of the human body that is comprised of seven layers of energy. These layers hold different vibrational signatures individually which correspond to specific systems within us such as our physical body, emotional body, organs, Chakras, and spiritual body. Collectively, they can align vibrationally for specific purposes, or involuntarily during a response to encounters with strong transmissions of electromagnetic energies. Our Auric Field not only transmits energetic information outward, but it also receives and interacts with transmissions of energy projected onto it by others. For an Empath, these energetic exchanges can be intensified compared to other people. This is because of the nature of their Auric Field being energetically more “available” or “open”. Think of it like a widely woven fishing net compared to a tightly woven sheet of cheesecloth. More energetic information and foreign energy signatures breach the protective layers of the Auric Field easier, and can penetrate the subtle bodies. Once this occurs, two reactions typically happen. Either the person rejects the foreign energies, or, assimilates to them.
