What does it mean to have practical rituals as an empath?
Even if you prefer the spiritual side of things as a Seeker Empath, managing the practical sides of self-care is extremely important to the sensitive body and soul that you live in. Taking care of yourself as a ritual is a way to conceptualize the experience without getting stuck in the mundane and to help you remember that you are sacred.
Your physical needs are just as relevant as the spiritual ones—here you will see some very tangible things you can implement, to make your life that much better as an empath.
Start by creating the right surroundings for your archetype
Studies have shown that color, music, and lighting can impact a person’s mood. Hospitals use particular colors to assist patients and their loved ones to feel more at ease during what could be a stressful situation. Calming blues, pale tones, and greens are typical for the walls of patient rooms.
As an empath, you tend to be a visual person, and therefore pick up on the vibration of your environment. This is a mostly subconscious process. Your mood can shift, but you are not sure why. So having a say over your space can help set the tone for a day off, working from home, or spending time on creative projects.
Things for you to keep in mind:
- Music – The subtle beats in music can have a profound effect on your creativity and mood. Use music to help you get out of a funk or inspire a project, rest, and many other situations.
- Aesthetics – You appreciate visual stimulation and the vibration of appearances. Don’t feel guilty or bad about spending time curating your spaces to make them more comfortable for you.
- Snacks – Try to have easy-to-eat snacks on you. Having something to eat when you are on the go or waiting in line, for example, can bring ease to an otherwise stressful situation.
