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.
Have us present – triple bam – ultra drain.
Over the past few weeks, I have had difficulty finding stability because I have been out and about.
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.

I love it when nature starts to peacefully whisper to me and I am called to hug the trees.

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.

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
