Blooming Sensitivity: Nurturing Your Empathic Gifts with Flower Essences

Empathy is a beautiful and profound human trait that allows us to connect with others on a deep emotional level. 

Do you feel emotionally drained after spending time with certain people? Do you experience inexplicable heavy emotions? Do you tend to please others and take on their pain?

Being an empath and sensitive can be both a curse and a gift.

Being empathic means, you absorb the emotions and energies of those around you. It requires careful nurturing and self-care to maintain a healthy balance. 

Flower essences are one valuable tool to support and enhance empathic sensitivity. They also provide emotional support and balance.

Understanding Your Highly Sensitive Empathic Nature

Empathic sensitivity, known as being an “empath”. It is the ability to feel and understand the emotions, thoughts, and energies of others. 

Big crowds can be challenging, and watching the news or violent movies is difficult. You may always feel you need to “fix” things because of the emotions you feel from others. The mental and emotional load is heavy.

Being empathic, you easily pick up on the emotional undercurrents in your environment and, if you’re not aware, may act this out.

Empaths can get overwhelmed by the emotional energy around them, leading to emotional exhaustion, stress, and burnout. Without proper self-care, their sensitivity can become a burden rather than a gift.

I was always told I was overly sensitive as a child. I was emotional – I could feel my mother’s pain. I attuned very much to my siblings, later friends and feeling overwhelmed a lot of the time. 

I took everything in so deeply and felt the need to fix everything. I was also very intuitive. It has taken me a long time to understand the importance of looking after my sensitivity and maintaining strong boundaries.

If my energy is drained, my mind moves into overdrive, I feel super heavy and not myself. This is because I carried and, at times, processing the emotions of others. It was a nightmare for a time.

Now, I’m much more mindful. I don’t take myself into big crowds or parties, preferring small groups. I work 1 1 – I spend more time in nature. By honouring my empathic nature, I am much less stressed and overwhelmed, accepting this is who I am.

Flower Essence Therapy helped me a lot. Being empathic, I tuned to the flowers and their healing signatures. They helped me let go of past traumas and heal from them. They’ve also helped me to understand who I am and how important it is to have firm boundaries to remain buoyant and happy in my skin.

How Flower Essences Calm Sensitivity

Flower essences are a form of natural therapy. They harness the vibrational energy and healing properties of various flowers. 

They became well-known and developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the early 20th century. There are many flower essences from different parts of the world. All are here to support us. They were created to address various emotional and spiritual issues. 

They are super effective through deep, raw emotional times and if you’re super sensitive. Their energy is easily absorbed, shifting the system of the mind and soothing emotions.

Here are some flower essences that are beneficial for sensitivity and to soothe and empower the empathic natured.

How to Apply Flower Essence Therapy to Support You

When using flower essences to support empathic sensitivity, it’s essential to follow these steps:

It is essential to consult a qualified Flower Essence Practitioner. They are qualified to assess your needs and recommend the appropriate essences. It is important to note here that flowers are the great attractors. If you see a flower in the bush that instantly attracts you – it has a healing message.

Flower essences can be taken orally by placing a few drops under the tongue or adding them to water. They can also be added to a bath, and you can soak up their healing signatures.

Flower essences are very subtle and work gradually, so it’s essential to use them consistently over time. Embrace the process and be patient with this and with yourself. I highly recommend journaling to move you through deep transformative times.

It’s essential to pay attention to any changes in your emotional well-being and empathic sensitivity. Flower essences will awaken and deepen your self-awareness and personal growth.

Empathic sensitivity is a precious gift, but it requires careful attention and self-care to thrive. Establishing and maintaining boundaries is vital to keeping an inner sense of harmony. Like anything, it can take time to create and understand your needs in this way.
