When I was little I did lots of physical activities, as children do. I took dance classes, played softball, swimming, track & field, etc. But the older I've gotten the more uncomfortable I've felt in my body. My routine changed from being active to staying in bed watching Netflix everyday. And I brushed it off as a part of puberty like anyone else would. But the longer it lasted the more I felt it wasn't that. I questioned if I was uncomfortable with my gender, but that wasn't it either.
So, last month I received a psychic reading from a woman who often works with empaths. This was kismet, seeing as she made me better understand the fact that I am an empath and how to feel more comfortable on this planet. She taught me how to ground, which has been helpful. She also did reiki, and when she got to my root chakra she said that my energy very rarely gets down to my feet. On a good day it reaches my knee caps, and lots of the time I'm only connected to the upper half of my body.
She explained that this is what doctors would call dissociation, and then mentioned that it is common with empaths. Like if I'm uncomfortable I'm like "Bye, I'm out of here" and my energy moves out of the part of me that is directly connected to the Earth.
I was curious if anyone could explain to me a little bit more about this kind of dissociation and if there are any other ways of dealing with it? It's a big part of me and my life that is for a most part a mystery. Thanks for reading!
