I've yet to encounter anyone who has a high level of natural intuitive abilities — such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, or claircognizance — who is not also primarily clairsentient. Empathy — experiencing external emotional energies as your own moods and sensitivities and feelings — is the foundation of "being psychic."
For those who identify as Lightworkers, empathy is a part of everyday life. For those who take this identity into the professional realm, residual energy can literally become an occupational hazard.
You are probably familiar with the concept of psychic protection using Purple Light and White Light Shielding — Purple Light being the highest angelic vibe you can invoke for spiritual protection, nurturing, and support; White Light being the universal holy shield.
But White Light may be too hard core for day-to-day human interactions and relationships.
In addition to regular energy clearing practices and cord-cutting, I most often share the following psychic "soft" shielding technique with empaths who work in para-professional or healing arts fields where heart-centered connection is a requirement.
