Hello dear readers, This is topic that though I hope will be enjoyed by everyone, will be of particular interest to those that identify as empathic or highly sensitive. It is the second blog post in my recurring series for empaths and sensitives. We have all heard about “shielding” against “bad vibes” and other forms of negativity. For sensitive folks especially, grounding and shielding is highly important. I should put out the disclaimer with this piece that I am NOT advocating stopping these practices as they serve a practical purpose.
