Dearest guides,

I am having difficulty with the sensitivities that I have. I am especially having trouble interacting with people. I get overwhelmed and I feel like I am sensing their energy and it is very intense. I feel the emotions of others and I find it confusing because sometimes I think their emotions are mine. I have been trying to overcome my social anxiety but it is hard because I think the anxiety is helping me cope with my sensitivities. I don’t feel like I fit very well in society and would love to feel more comfortable. My attempts to reach out to people have been very painful.  I was wondering if you have any advice?

The guide’s response:

Yes my beautiful ancient one.  You are a very evolved being.  It’s not easy to walk in the physical world when one has lived in it many, many times.  It is true you are very intuitive, very sensitive.  You walk in other beings shoes, you feel their pain, you hear their thoughts, not their words so much.  One thing you have a little out of balance, blessed one, is that you are drawing the energy into you (not unusual for ancient beings) instead of out of you.   Allow the amazing love and light to pour through you, out of you and into them. Feel them and pour love into them.  Feel as if you have floodlights pouring it out of your chest into others.  And then close off, leaving enough inside of you to be whole, balanced, and filled with light and love.

Ancient ones (and I mean this not in physical years but your spirit’s age) often have difficult lifetimes because they each come with a clear and quite huge promise: to help many.  Dear one, choose not to do anything with it right now, but find comfort with them.  Be with them; see them and not yourself.  See who they be, for they simply want to be seen by you, those that come close.  See them.  Give them the light and love.  Allow it to channel through you to them.  Bless you, ancient one, for you are loved.
