Common Signs Of Compassion Fatigue And Empathy Burnout

5 Signs Of Compassion Fatigue and Emotional Burn-Out. What does compassion fatigue look like and what can you do to reduce the risk of this type of emotional exhaustion, anxiety and stress with Empath and Stress Management Expert; Eileen Burns.

What is Compassion?

Compassion is an awareness and sensitivity to other people’s suffering. Which invokes concern and sympathy, it involves altruism and a wanting to take action to reduce the person’s pain. Now it is easy to get confused with compassion and empathy. Examples of compassion is offering to help out a friend, neighbour with something they find difficult. Being able to listen to someones recent challenges with patience and care.

What is Empathy?

Empathy is the ability to put yourself in someone’s position and feel what someone else is feeling. Someone who is an empath will often actually feels the pain of others for example the physical, mental, emotional pain of others or the energy of a place. Examples of empathy being able to sense other people’s emotions and feelings, feel or see behind a mask. Absorbing other people’s energies, dramas, excitement.

What is Compassion Fatigue and Empathy Fatigue?

Compassion Fatigue

Compassion Fatigue is a form of burn-out a reduction in compassion and empathy that leads to a variety of symptoms that can make you feel frustrated, exhausted, detached, in a state of apathy.

It is caused by both secondary traumatic stress (common in empathy fatigue) which I talk about below and burnout. Often seen in prolonged long periods of over empathy and caregiving, periods of extreme trauma, stress or chronic stress.

Empathy Fatigue

Empathy fatigue is extremely common in empaths as empathy can be extremely overwhelming and very stimulating on the nervous system. It can involve a lot of over-identification of other people’s pain especially when the empath lacks healthy boundaries.

This happens when one’s own wounds are re-triggered by the pain or challenges of others, but feel unable, too detached or too overwhelmed to give the support.

Empathy Fatigue was coined by Professor Mark Stebnicki who documented the observations of “secondary traumatic stress” in what he classed as “high-touch therapists” for example counsellors, psychotherapists etc who in their work needed to have a strong emotional connection to their patients, therapists. They were presenting the same symptoms of their patients or clients anxiety and stress.

Are You At Risk Of Compassion Fatigue Or Empathy Burnout?

Empaths, healers, therapists, caregivers, coaches and counsellors are at a high-risk of compassion fatigue and empathy fatigue. Especially those that suffer or become distracted by other people’s pain.

5 Common Signs Of Compassion Fatigue and Empathy Fatigue

Below are common signs in empathy fatigue and compassion fatigue where there is an overlap in triggers and causes.

Apathy

Compassion Fatigue And Empathic Burnout

Feelings of Apathy is a very common sign of compassion fatigue, feel as if you don’t care about anything anymore. Lack of concern, interest enthusiasm and motivation.

Anger and Irritability

Feeling anxious, angry and irritable are common compassion fatigue symptoms. It comes from being overwhelmed and having less tolerance.

Burnout And Exhaustion

A general feeling of burnout and overwhelming exhaustion that leaves you feeling unable to have the mental, emotional or physical resources to deal with or support someone else who is suffering.

Detached

Feeling very detached from your own emotions and emotions, suffering of others is a common example of compassion fatigue in healthcare and hospitals. This is very common in medical professionals, nurses, doctors, those who deal with traumatic experiences, all sorts of mental, emotional pain and suffering on a daily basis.

Emotional and Traumatic Recollections

Emotional and Traumatic Recollections where the client, patient or situation triggers certain memories associated with another client, patient or their own personal trauma. Especially those that are related to particularly traumatic, demanding or challenging situations.

Healing And Manging Compassion Fatigue and Empathy Fatigue

Healthy Boundaries

Healthy boundaries is so important to reduce both compassion fatigue and empathy fatigue especially in empaths who tend to struggle with boundaries and non-identification. As an unruly empath for most of my life, this has been something I have had to work on deeply.

Many empaths have to deeply understand the importance of boundaries, challenge their belief systems and habits around feeling responsible for other people’s pain and suffering.  Unfortunately empaths tend to be more prone to attract those who want to stay in victimhood, narcissistic traits and behaviour patterns.

Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle is an important aspects of preventing any sorts of mental, emotional fatigue and burnout. What we eat, what we consume mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually can fuel us, deplete or intoxicate us. That is why it is important to do what you can to consume a high vibrational life.

Sadly many medical professionals are some of the most unhealthiest eaters, have alcohol or other addictions. Suffer insomnia especially understandably those on unhealthy shift patterns. All of these things will lead to depletion and physical burnout which in turn reflects the amount of emotional and mental resources you have to support others.

Good Self Awareness

Good self awareness is key in helping us become aware of our needs, our own triggers, light and shadow traits. Our unconscious habits and beliefs that are keeping us stick. Many in the healing and therapy professionals are wounded healers, choosing careers in these areas because of their own past or present wounding. This can provide greater compassion for others but can also lead to a variety of challenges if the inner child trauma or inner child wounding is not healed. Especially when there is saviour, healer or rescuer traits which can create all forms of co-dependency issues in the patients and clients.

Self Care and Self Compassion

Self Care and Self Compassion is a vital component to the prevention and reduction of compassion fatigue and empath burnout. This is so important in caregivers and empaths who are naturally altruistic and motivated in life by service to others. And who struggle to identify their own needs, wants often due to a childhood knee deep in supporting, helping, rescuing others. Especially self care that helps us keep an open and expansive heart.

Trauma Support

Support with your own personal trauma is so important, we all carry trauma from our childhood and adulthood that shapes our beliefs, behaviours and reactions on a daily basis. Trauma comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, it impacts us all in different ways in our life, relationships, health and wellbeing. As someone who has tried out, studied and practices wide range  of therapeutic approaches to help clients with trauma for over 20 years. I would always support a holistic approach, a multi-faceted approach for the best results. I personally use a combination of therapeutic archetypal and inner child coaching, healing and therapy with my own clients.

What Core Wound Is Sabotaging Your Success?

What Core Wound Is Sabotaging Your Success?

What core wound is sabotaging your success in business, life, and health? Exploring the 4 common core wounds behind so many of the challenges we can have in achieving business, financial, relationship, and health success.

What is a Core Wound?

What Core Wound Is Sabotaging Your Success

A core wound is a deep psychological wound that makes a large imprint on our psyche. Core wounds leave very distorted limiting beliefs in our unconscious. Many deep core wounds form before 7 years of age, an important time in a child’s development when we form certain narratives, patterns, and behaviours.

Although core wounds can develop later in life most deeper wounding is formed in these early years. It is often the deeper wounding, the deeper layer of pain behind many unhealthy patterns and traits that sabotage different areas of our lives.

How Core Wounds Begin

Core wounds begin when one moves from a state of authentic freedom and the receiver of unconditional love, into different states of mental, emotional, physical, or even spiritual wounding and pain. That is formed from judgment rejection, and punishment from others when we don’t conform to certain behaviours, and ideologies of those around us.

On a spiritual level, it is when the soul feels disconnected from love in many ways at an unconscious level the soul feels disconnected from god.

Core Wounds And Unconscious Sabotaging Beliefs

Core wounds are interrelated to a variety of unconscious sabotaging beliefs and archetypal traits that keep us stuck in unhealthy self-sabotaging beliefs, patterns, attractions, and manifestations.

4 Core Wounds That May Be Sabotaging Your Success

Guilt Wound

Guilt wounding can keep us small, and keep us stuck in archetypal patterns where we get embroiled in others’ emotional pain and suffering. Become the caregiver, helper, servant, rescuer, hero, and warrior in its shadow form.

The Inner child feels guilty for things they are not responsible for, guilty for the suffering and pain of those around them and in the collective. Struggles to set boundaries and struggles to ask for help or receive it in life. Tend to attract people who will use all sorts of manipulation tactics to get them to feel sorry for them, do things for them, and get their attention.

You see this in a lot of empaths and those brought up in a highly strict religious background where guilt was used to manipulate and control.

Displaced guilt can trigger all sorts of unhealthy patterns and behaviors such as overgiving and under receiving in business. Constantly attract those who don’t want to pay or appreciate your value, such as those stuck in their victim archetype or eternal archetype who don’t want to take self-responsibility for their challenges.

Abandonment Wound

Abandonment wounding can stop us make true genuine deep connections in business with our ideal audience and business connections.The abandoned inner child always feels left out and can unintentionally keep themself on the sidelines by their thoughts and behaviours. They struggle to be alone, left out, or appear different. Tend to create co-dependent relationships and co-dependent issues in situations. Tend to attract partners, friends, and other relationships with those who are emotionally unavailable.

In the spiritual business, this can show up as the business that wants to try and serve everyone and is so focused on not leaving anyone out. So busy trying to cater to anyone or everyone their messaging speaks to no one or very few. That is why they can struggle to make deep connections or make any real impact. Their deep desire to be accepted, and belong can make it difficult for their ideal audience to get to know them at a deeper authentic soul level.

Trust Wound

Trust wounding can create all sorts of chaos in business and success. The problem with this major core wound in business is their lack of trust in themselves which shows up in lack of trust in all areas of their life.

Those with trust wounds are so insecure and so afraid to be hurt, that they can be very suspicious, and look for reasons not to trust others. Some tend to be more loners or attract others who don’t feel safe and are also insecure, so there are a lot of trust issues in these relationships.

In any business, trust in your gifts, skills, expertise, your business, and your offerings is paramount. You also have to trust the people you work with, and the clients you serve if you don’t you will attract all sorts of unhealthy situations that reinforce further lack of trust.

Neglect Wound

Neglecting wounding where someone has very low self-worth often attracts all sorts of challenges that reflect that unworthiness. Such as struggling to attract clients, co-partners, and relationships that don’t value, appreciate, or see them no matter how skilled, gifted, or experienced they are they can feel invisible, feel taken for granted, and be undervalued.

Neglect wounding is a core wound that can show up in a lot of repressed emotions, and a struggle to be vulnerable. Wounding that can cause a lot of empaths to become so focused on others they don’t care for themselves and suffer empathic burnout.

What is Colour Therapy and Colour Healing?

What is Colour Therapy and Colour Healing?

What is Colour Therapy and Colour Healing? How can you use colour therapy and colour healing in your own life, in your healing or coaching practice?

Understanding Colour

In the 1660s Issac Newton “demonstrated that clear white light was composed of seven visible colors”. Colour is different waves or frequencies of electromagnetic radiation visible to the human eye.

The colour of any object is defined and or described by its hue, lightness, and saturation. Colours require light to be visible to the naked eye. To understand color effectively you need to look at colour in relation to physics, physiology, and psychology.

The eye and brain together translate light into colour. Rods and Cones within the retina transmit different impulses and intensities which are transmitted into colour and sharpness. The colour processing centre in the human brain is believed to be in the ventral occipital lobe as part of the visual system. But different studies especially those using monkeys have demonstrated that colours activate different areas in the brain e.g. fusiform gyrus, and lingual gyrus. Areas involved in colour vision processing are together labeled visual area 4 (V4 ).

Colour Therapy - Colour Spectrum Chart

What Is Colour Therapy?

Colour Therapy (chromotherapy) and Colour Healing use the different spectrums of light and color for therapeutic use in supporting health and well-being.

The vibration and frequency of energy that related to each of the seven spectrum colours of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

NOTE: Some of the invisible spectrum ranges used in science and medicine can be harmful.

Psychological Impact Of Colour Therapy

Colour impacts us physiologically and psychologically.

Colour psychology is widely used in branding, marketing, media, and psychological treatments. As colour is one of the most powerful ways to trigger certain emotional, mental and physical reactions. That is why certain foods and brands use certain types of colours to increase sales. Certain colours are used to build trust, and to increase and reinforce certain actions and certain habits.

Even the colours we wear or choose in our home have an impact on our psychological, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

Physiological Influence Of Colour Therapy

Colour can influence us physiologically, color can change our aura, our organs, and our chakras. Colour triggers certain responses through the way it stimulates the retina and brain.

Colour memories trigger certain emotional and physical responses. That is why colour can increase hunger, rage, and sex drive, help you feel more calm, and relaxed, boost your mood, and lower your mood.

In my early twenties, a friend of mine painted her very first home all in green. I mean we’re talking about green everywhere I told her at the time that maybe should compliment it with another more warming colour.

She had moved out of a very stressful environment and then found herself within weeks feeling very depressed and couldn’t understand why.

After a few suggestions that maybe the problem was the amount of green and tones of green in her home that may be contributing to her low mood. She decided to introduce some soft and warmer colours like pink, she started to feel so much more brighter and positive.

Colour Therapy In Guided Imagery and Guided Meditation

Colour therapy is widely used in guided meditation and creative imagery to invoke certain memories and emotions. That is why it is used in psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, healing, and in sports performance.

The key is choosing the right colour frequency for the specific challenge. Colour can be deeply healing, and extremely therapeutic it can also be harmful in the wrong hands.

The wrong colours can stimulate the wrong emotional or physical reaction. Like everything colour can not just be used to heal the wrong colours can harm, and increase all sorts of emotional, mental, and physiological changes to the body.

I have witnessed and been the victim of therapists and healers who don’t know how to use colour most effectively. One teacher told a group of us how she focused on just using red in a guided meditation on a child who was very highly sensitive and already extremely overstimulated.

Because she said she wanted to support his root chakra. It simply made the child even more overwhelmed and stimulated. .

The colour Red for many people who are already overstimulated, over stressed can be very traumatising. On someone with high blood pressure, this good be quite dangerous.

Colour Therapy In Art Therapy

The very act of putting colour into some sort of piece of art or self-expression is in itself very therapeutic and healing. Art therapy is widely used to encourage self-expression, empowerment, creativity, mindfulness, and relaxation. Colour is an innate aspect of art therapy that can help the individual express and heal emotions, release old trauma, and become more calm, relaxed, and free.

Colour Therapy Using Colour Light Lamps

I took a year’s course in colour healing using coloured light lamps in my twenties. It was such an interesting course around colour healing and colour therapy. And was one of the colour therapy courses that ignited my interest for color therapy, color healing color psychology, and later colour analysis.

Self Healing – What is Shadow Work?

Self Healing – What is Shadow Work?

Self Healing – What is Shadow Work?

What is shadow work and why is shadow work such an important part of self healing, raising your vibration and consciousness.

Healing - What is Shadow Work?

What is Shadow Work?

Shadow work is about healing our shadow traits, our inner wounding, our fears, mental and emotional triggers, unhealthy beliefs, actions and programming. Every single one of us have positive traits and shadow traits, that impact how we show up in our life. The roles we play, even the circumstances we attract in our life.

Shadow work is an important part of raising our vibration and level of consciousness. It requires a certain amount of self-awareness, self-inquiry and self-responsibility and it is an ongoing process. It is not something you just do over a period of time and all is healed, shadow work is a fundamental part of the spiritual journey.

As they say its’s a journey not a race.

There is all different types of shadow work and in many ways different layers to shadow work. One common aspect of shadow work is healing the inner child and this is normally done along side other archetypal shadow work. Where one explores the most dominant archetypal patterns that are playing out in their personality and behaviours.

We just need to explore the Wounded Healer a strong archetype in healers, therapists and many medical professionals.

The Wounded Healer

The Wounded Healer has both light and shadow traits.

In it’s highest positive light traits the wounded healer, is able to support someone’s healing process through compassion and healing from their own wounding.

“In 1951, Jung first used the term wounded healer.11 Jung believed that disease of the soul could be the best possible form of training for a healer. In a book published days before his death,12 Jung wrote that only a wounded physician could heal effectively” National Library Of Medicine – The wounded healer

In its shadow traits the ego wants to heal others than working on their own healing. The Shadow traits can show up in all sorts of way in the wounded healer. Especially in healers who wants to fix others than constantly working on their own mental, emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Healing is an ongoing process.

A healers unhealed wounding can also show up in healers who move from training to training, certificate to certificate just for the title or to add something to their business., but don’t apply the tools and techniques to their own life. Or healers and coaches who only look at light work and positive mindset and use all sorts of avoidance techniques to avoid the shadow within and around them.

spiritual coaching programs for healers

Healing Our Shadow Traits

Shadow work, healing our shadow traits is an ongoing process, in a 3d world we all carry different wounding that is keeping us stuck.

Anything that triggers a negative emotional reaction is a wounding; a persons words, actions, beliefs.

Any behaviour pattern that is not of the highest vibration is a shadow trait; from the things we do or don’t put in our body and mind, what we do and don’t do in our life.

That is why things like avoidance, procrastination are shadow traits. Even over attachment to materialistic things are shadow traits as it means your ego is running the show and putting more importance to material things than your soul.The need to be right, even certain expectations are shadow traits.

There is also so many different types of shadow selves like the naive shadow, superficial shadow, cowardly shadow, suspicious shadow, controlling shadow…

5 Ways To Heal Our Shadow Traits

5 different types of shadow work that helps heal our negative traits

The Art Of Stillness

The art of being still and being able to be in the moment is a powerful part of healing our shadow wounding as it all starts with self awareness. When we struggle to be still, struggle to stop or meditate, in many ways something else is running the show. Childhood trauma or conditioning can create all sorts of unhealthy beliefs or programming around busyness, or fear of facing the shadow within. That is why deep traditional meditation practices are extremely powerful at increasing self awareness and better soul connection.

Soul Connection

Building a deep heart and soul connection helps us naturally get more connected and guided with our soul’s essence. It helps us loosen our attachment to things outside ourselves that is not of the light our divine truth. Soul work naturally helps expand our vibration and helps heal our wounding and triggers, the biggest cause of unhappiness.

It also helps elevate our consciousness and awareness to such a degree that you are not as easily influenced or programmed by the illusion and deception of the 3rd world.Equally you also become less polarised, that is why so many lightworkers who have good soul connection and good soul power can see through the veil of illusion and chaos and still stay very positive and grounded.They can look at the dark and not be as touched by, while others want to hide, because they are hiding from their own shadow.

Inner Child Healing and Inner Child Therapy

There are so many different types of inner child work that can help us explore and heal hidden and deep seated emotional triggers and unhealthy shadow traits that are keeping is stuck in patterns. Inner child play is good for beginners, it is helps form a more calm and relaxed connection with the inner child. There are a variety of psychological and healing approaches to inner child and shadow work.

I use some psychic approaches because of the amount of energetic and psychic interferences and attachments people are carrying, especially healers. For inner child work, make sure you choose a therapist who has a good understanding of trauma, the psyche and schisms.

Archetypal Therapy and Healing

Archetypes are a powerful way to highlight both positive and shadow traits in every area of our life. Technically inner child work is one aspect of archetypal work, though archetypal work outside just the realm of the inner child but all different archetypal patterns that are playing out.

I have been studying archetypal work for over 25 years and even though there is so many layers to archetypal work I find it extremely powerful to help healers, therapists and coaches and any sort of lightworkers, move through their self-sabotaging shadow traits.

Therapeutic Story Telling

Creative and therapeutic storytelling can be a powerful way to heal inner child trauma and wounding. It can be extremely healing and empowering. One of the most fun, creative and healing sessions I ever run many years ago was a Fairytale Inner Child Writing Course. Healing and changing our story our narrative about how we see ourselves is a powerful way to move out of the sabotaging survival archetypes we take on. That is why therapeutic storytelling can be used alongside other types of shadow work.
