Being an Extremely Sensitive Empath has Its Challenges but The Great Outdoors is Healing: Sterling Sinclair Goes Barefoot Tree Hugging, Walking, Bathing and Sunset Swimming, October 2017
If you are like me, people, yes people, people in general drain you. The drama never ends whether it be on a sidewalk, at a friend’s house visiting, at a hospital or big stores like Walmart.
Take us to a conference just to listen – bam – drain.
Have us present – triple bam – ultra drain.
If you are like me, you probably go out and socialize as seldom as possible and live like a hermit as much as possible.
We are naturally social as well as reclusive. It is an impossible life to live but we find our ways to live it.
Over the past few weeks, I have had difficulty finding stability because I have been out and about.
So when at my rural waterfront studio in the woods, I have been seeking restoration.
I hope that these videos give you a sense of peace, calm and home.
This is a video of me heading out for a walk in the field. I just got back to the studio and immediately had to go for a walk:

Once out in the woods, especially in the fall, I like to kick off my shoes and go walking barefoot in the leaves. It is astonishingly grounding.
This is a video of me walking barefoot through the leaves:

I love it when nature starts to peacefully whisper to me and I am called to hug the trees.
This video is raw and up close. I hope that you gain the sense of being one with the forest:

When I return, especially when it is at sunset or evening, I find that a nature swim or blessed bathing in the lake to be restorative. I let the waters drain away any pain that I am shedding.
This video is of my going into the lake barefoot. The water for the end of October is really warm. It was so magical with the light twinking on the lake as the sun set.

For us extreme empaths, reconnecting with nature and the elements has a way of giving us a rest. The above moments gave me times to cleanse and re-energize. Do you do similar activities too. Do you find nature helpful?
Much love, S
