So, my boyfriend's ex girlfriend has been going through an emotional rough patch since I've met my boyfriend. I've always hoped that she would get better, but it doesn't seem to me that she's recovering very well, though I don't know the whole situation or as many details as my boyfriend does (they still talk and have remained close friends long before he and I met). Well, she called my boyfriend to talk to him, because she was having a breakdown and probably didn't have anyone else to turn to. So, while he left me alone to talk with her, I lit a candle, said a prayer, and then sent her some positive healing energy while saying a kind of improvisational chant about her feeling better soon and being able to communicate positive feelings towards others. I'm not very experienced in sending energy. I didn't do any grounding (not sure if that's a requirement, but right now it seems like it would have been a TERRIFIC idea), and after I felt lightheaded. During, I could feel warmth inside me, particularly my heart. When I was done and feeling lightheaded, I thought it would be good to eat something, but all I had on hand was candy, so I ate a piece and then did a short time of meditation. After meditation, I could still feel abut of the lightheadedness and just before, my heart started hurt and still does (I did all this probably about fifteen minutes ago). I looked up what chakra was at the heart and I read that it was a chakra of love, vocation, and then something else (I forgot). So could my heart chakra have been affected?? I also read that the heart chakra is normally green (the color I envisioned the healing energy to be) and has it's own positive energy or has to do with healing or something. So could I have screwed up my chakra or affected it negatively when I sent energy to the ex? I just not used to sending energy? Or should I just ground next time I send energy? I admit the sending energy was actually a spur of the moment thing, but I do hope the ex starts feeling a lot better soon.
Grounding probably would have been a good idea, since you've never done sending before, but what you did was just fine. Your Heart Chakra probably felt some of the pain that she feels, because it seems to me that she was really hoping to get back with your boyfriend before he met you (I'm just speculating, since I don't know the whole sitch). Just take some time to meditate and ground yourself, and you should start feeling fine again. I don't think you've done any damage to yourself at all.
It sounds to me that what you did was Empathic, meaning that you took some of her pain in order to help heal her internal wounds. Like I said, just do some grounding, eat something hearty (Thick soup and sandwich, turkey and all the trimmings, burger and fries, etc.), and get a good night's rest. You should be fine.
Thank you so much for that suggestion. I did cry while I prayed for her again after I sent her some energy. And my boyfriend said that she started feeling better soon. I looked up ways to balance my Heart Chakra and tried that and now it's the next day and I feel so much better. But thank you for your advice, it will be very helpful the next time I do any sending.
