I'm in kind of an onion patch of healing myself, but it's more related to self love. I'm glad you mentioned the situation, where every day presents itself with another layer that is asking to be healed which makes more sense than what I was thinking. I had the visualization of being on one of the rungs in the spiral of progression (from one of your older Ask Teal videos about feeling like you've gone backwards). Every time I feel I have an epiphany about how I work and my place within the world, I'm waiting for the euphoria that used to come after those realizations (the space between the lines of the spiral), but the next day I am presented with another layer of the issue! Can't a guy get a break?! Haha but really.
I've also been feeling more easily overwhelmed by the world recently. The more I tap into my intuition, the more I get bombarded with information from other things and people when I step outside. Yesterday I went to a huge antique store only to feel all of the objects reaching out to me. Lots of connections people that have passed, and lots of stories stored in those objects. It's like channeling, only it's not just a person reaching out to you from the other side, it's people from the other side reaching through these objects. I stayed as grounded as I could because I didn't want to get overloaded with information, I came to shop, not to be medium. It was really strange walking around, looking at all of the objects and immediately knowing more about them than I should. There are a lot of sad stories there. I would love to go back, only now I don't want to because I don't want to cry. It's hard to separate the objects from the people they belonged to, because most of the objects are only there because someone died. I love that I have the ability to tap into objects, and communicate with people that have passed as well as help heal people people that are here, but I can't help but ask why? I don't want to be a channel even though it is a gift that I could use. The only way an empath can survive is to create boundaries so they don't feel what others are feeling. There is a lot of information that I get sometimes and I just don't know what to do with it. What is the benefit of knowing what people are going to say before they say it? I know a lot of it is linked to survival, but I'm not fighting for my life every day, so what do I do with all that information? Makes me feel really out of place sometimes.
