Have you ever felt as if it was impossible to separate your emotions from the feelings of others?
Have you ever felt like an energy sponge, always absorbing “stuff?”
A lot of empaths have this experience sometimes, myself included.
One of the biggest remedies I’ve found in being able to protect my energy and stop absorbing so much from others is knowing myself.
Knowing my likes and dislikes. Knowing what I stand for and against. Knowing what my energy feels like and being aware of my energetic state.
Yes, a deep, inner knowing of who I am has shown to be the absolute best form of energy protection.
Let’s get into the why.
Why Getting to Know Yourself is the Best Form of Energy Protection
Helps make boundary setting easy
When you know yourself- there’s no more wavering back and forth between knowing whats right for you and what isn’t. That makes setting boundaries with things and people that drain you so much easier. When you can confidently set boundaries and know clearly when and where they are needed your energy is being honored and protected.
Helps you identify your energy
Knowing yourself includes knowing your energy. Its a level of self-awareness that empowers you to understand how your energy works. You’re better able to notice whats draining you, what is nourishing you, and the impact that your environment is having on you. When you have self-awareness of your own unique energy, you can better protect it from what simply does not belong to you.
Helps you understand other people’s energy better
On the other hand, knowing how to identify your energy also helps enable you to identify other’s energy. When you better understand other people’s energy, you can protect yourself when needed. You’re better able to identify the people who drain you from the people who inspire you. Pro-tip: your circle should be made up of the latter!

Knowing who you are is one of the best ways to build confidence. A lack of confidence often comes from not even knowing yourself or what you stand for. When you are fully self-aware and have sat with your truth- your confidence soars. A confident person is able to do what it takes to protect their energy and put the needs of their highest good, first.
Activates your inner warrior
Once you know yourself for the infinite, beautiful and limitless being that you are- the warrior awakens. There is no more excuse for disrespecting your energy, neglecting your energetic hygiene, or letting people leech off of your energy.
