Lover Empath – Chapter 16 (iii)

3. List of Alternative Healing Methods and Wellness Practices

The Lover Empath is a sweet soul that needs interaction. You prefer to do your emotional processing with other people and seek out wellness methods for in-person healing sessions.

Things that are tangible are preferred, so art therapy and journaling can make use of your mind as is being able to do something physical in the process. In addition, things such as reflexology can help put you in touch with your body on a deeper level. Acro yoga or partner yoga are also great ways to spend time with someone you care about and get exercise. You like to lead a healthy lifestyle in general and also seek to add fitness into your routines.

When you do decide to do healing or self-reflection on your own time, you tend to turn towards reading the current self-help literature or doing meditation. You can also carve out space to fully meet with your own emotional experience. Without anyone else around, you are able to get more deeply in tune with your own sense of self.

Finally, working one-on-one with a spiritual counselor, astrologer, or coach of some kind can give you inspiration for your healing. From there you can take the information learned and apply it to your life as you discover what to include on your wellness journey.

4. Divination tools for the Lover Empath’s self-reflection

Divination tools are a great way for empaths to dive into the energy currents of their lives. You can excavate the archetypal themes that are playing out in the present moment. You can learn these divination tool suggestions for your archetype on your own or get a reading from a professional reader. There are plenty of resources out there!

Palmistry

You would naturally take towards palmistry as this tactile and analytical divination tool vibrates perfectly with your energy. Your cerebral tendencies will help to enable you to combine the knowledge of palmistry with the wisdom of spirit.

Take some time to learn the message of your own palms and go from there. Each finger and line are associated with different planets, concepts, and areas of life. This ancient art is a beautiful skill set to be able to use in deepening your understanding of all the different ways that messages can manifest.

Relationship Astrology

Relationship astrology is a practice that looks at the energies between people. Learning the techniques around synastry and composite and studying these tools in relation to your own self can be an outlet to deeper self-knowing.

In addition, you may consider Evolutionary Astrology which is a field of astrological study that looks at the spiritual, karmic, and soul ties between people. These forms of astrology help uncover why two people (or more) may have met, family dynamics, and compatibility.

Mirror Gazing

Mirror gazing is a technique that uses mirrors for peering into the underlying energies of a situation. You can use any size mirror for this divination method. Simply gaze into the mirror to begin. At first, make eye contact with yourself and let that intensify, then slowly start to allow your gaze to soften. Notice if any impressions, thoughts, emotions, or images come into your mind. You may feel a deep sense of self-actualization, suddenly have knowledge of a specific message, or see impressions and visuals about events that have recently taken place in your life.
