#51 – Intuitives, Empaths & The Personal Energy Boundary

Today’s episode is all about intuitives, empaths, and the personal energy boundary. If you think that sounds a little woo-woo or out there, I get it! If you immediately recognize yourself in the title, I get that too. More than others, this episode may not be for some people—but I think it will be deeply valuable for the people who do resonate with the topic.

Biggest Takeaways From Episode #51:

  • The personal energy boundary is our felt sense of another person’s energy. It might not be something obvious that a person does, says, or looks like, but rather their energetic field. (If you’re not sure what this means, think of an angry person. You can often tell that they’re angry even if they aren’t yelling or otherwise expressing their anger.)
  • Empaths and highly intuitive people tend to energetically pick up or sense what is going on with other people.
  • When you’re impacted by someone else’s energy, ask yourself what you need in the situation or how you can make it better for yourself. We tend to take less action to protect ourselves than we have the power to take.
  • If you identify as a person who is highly intuitive or empathic, use your own energetic boundary by imagining an invisible wall or glass dome around you, or angels or bodyguards protecting you. It’s also perfectly okay to choose not to look at other people or to avoid eye contact with strangers when you’re in public places!

    Hi Vicki,

    Thank you for this podcast. Before I ask my question, I have to let you know that your work has been life-changing for me. I recently made a very high stakes request of my spouse, and the process of going through that has been the highest level of self-care I have exercised in 23 years (as an adult). If my marriage continues or not, I have restored something within me, and truly understand my own value. Thank you, from the depths of my heart, for these tools that you share with the world, and specifically women. I am an empath; highly intuitive, and sometimes (I used to often think) to my own detriment. The question that’s still lingering for me is this: How can I know the difference between my ability to pick up on the thoughts and feelings of others, and my (sometimes) inability to see the least pathological reason for things I experience? For context, my husband has had an affair within the last year, and we are actively working through it with therapist(s), but I don’t want to confuse intuition with what I make up about things -based on fears, my own attachment style, etc. Would you be willing to clarify?
