June 26, 2018: The Shift Network:  12 noon Pacific time  Watch the Encore of
3 Steps to Clearing Other People’s Energy & Setting Healthy Boundaries

So, what will fill the space if, as an overly empathic person, you stop taking on other people’s energy?  Your own energy and radiant divine light, says Wendy De Rosa, leading intuitive healer, author and teacher.  This occurs in part, because your soul, forced higher up in your body due to early conditioning in your lower chakras, can finally return to its rightful place within your energetic anatomy…

In the brief video clip below, Wendy shares about the “detox” of energies that aren’t yours from your system — grounding you in your full, empowered Self and allowing you to radiate presence.

P.S In the meantime, you can be guided by Wendy much deeper into your energy system and in clearing early conditioning, de-cording and accessing your true power, here: Energy Training for Empaths.
