Boundaries for Empaths:

 

“I am unwilling to absorb anyone else’s energy.I want to be aware of it, but I’m unwilling to absorb it.”

 

“I need to check my schedule and get back to you.”

 

"asking your body “is this mine” for every feeling, mood, thought, pain, interaction, etc"

Grateful for reflection

 

I could have said "You seem angry. Is that true?" Instead of trying to figure why she would be so angry and how to lesson the tension. She appeared to me to be seething, which felt incongruous to the situation, and I felt her mood and unfriendliness for hours afterward. Even still, it lingers. (That is on me. I pick up others negativity and let it hang around with me. Thus my considering what it means to be empathic and how to have good boundaries in that respect.)

The Great Bell Chant

 

May the sound of this bell penetrate deep into the cosmos


Even in the darkest spots


Living beings are able to hear it clearly


So that all suffering in them cease


Understanding comes to their heart


And they transcend the path of sorrow and death.


 

The universal dharma door is already open


The sound of the rising tide is heard clearly


The miracle happens


A beautiful child appears in the heart of a lotus flower


One single drop of this compassionate water


Is enough to bring back the refreshing spring to our mountains and rivers.


 

Listening to the bell
I feel the afflictions in me begin to dissolve


My mind calm


My body relax


A smile is born on my lips


Following the sound of the bell


My breathe brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness


In the garden of my heart


The flowers of peace bloom beautifully.

—Thich Nhat Hahn
