An Empath’s Story – From Psychic Sponge to Empowered Empath

empath storyHow I went from Being a Psychic Sponge to Flexing my Superpowers as an Intuitive Empath.

I know what it is to feel slightly crazy and highly challenged when energy sensitivity overwhelms your life.

“The BioElectric Shield changed my life and gave me reserves of strength and calm I never imagined. I was skeptical, and it just didn’t seem possible.” Says AnnaMariah Nau

I’m AnnaMariah Nau. I’ve been with BioElectric Shield since 1994, when the Shield blew me away and changed my life. I’m an HSP/Empath and former poster child for Psychic Sponge. If you’re an HSP – A Highly Sensitive Person – or an empath, I understand your challenges; I’ve been there. I was sure sensitivity was a curse. I picked up everybody’s emotional and physical pain and often had difficulty knowing what I felt or thought.

BS – before Shield…The energy overload going to a trade show, festival, mall, or any other busy place would be so great that I’d be spacey, have a headache, or even have trouble breathing. Once, I ended up out front of an event, hyperventilating and crying hysterically. I was so embarrassed but felt like my entire being was shutting down or overwhelmed. I often had to forgo things I wanted to do because I feared melting down again. All the spiritual protection techniques I had learned just weren’t enough. I was at the mercy of the forces around me. I’m not a shrinking violet, weak, or indecisive, but I was often almost non-functional in the face of intense energies.

The Shield changed my life and has done so for thousands. That’s why I’ve been passionate about helping others find the help and protection they need. I love knowing what I do makes a difference.

What is impacting your energy and well-being? Take the HSP Empath Quiz and find out.

In 2016, Virginia Brown (company founder) and I decided to use quiz technology to help others learn more about their areas of sensitivity.  My friend Ellen Kornet of  Lnk Creative came on board to create a quiz that went deeper than “Yup, you’re sensitive. So Sorry.” We focused on triggers in five specific areas and wrote long informational posts explaining what was happening and giving tips on going from Curse to Blessing and turning them around. We also developed a quiz to assess your EMF sensitivity and risk levels and recommend the BioShield best matched for your needs.

The BioElectric Shield saved my life and sanity.

It was 1994, and what had been a dream quickly became a nightmare. I was living in Montana, working at what was supposed to become a healing and meditation center. I’d moved out to the middle of nowhere Montana to be part of this new venture. I’d left most of my possessions and lived in a little cabin. This all seemed so idyllic. HAH. That was before I knew that my friend “Jane”, now my boss, was a raving maniac and worse (sorry, I know that’s not a nice way to speak of bipolar people, but that’s how it felt at the time.).

A Screaming Tirade Took My Breath Away

Frequently, we’d be discussing something, and suddenly, a switch would go off, and she’d be screaming at me or someone else, saying some of the most insane things. The strength of her vehement negative energy would almost bowl me over. There weren’t many options available in the middle of nowhere, and I wanted to make this work, so I swore I’d stick it out. But after a month, I was beaten down, exhausted, scared, and depressed, and then it happened.

We were talking calmly and laughing as we worked on setting up a brochure and mailing list. The next minute, I had a crazy woman in my face, literally screaming at me, nuts, irrational, insane stuff. She entered a complete tirade, insisting I type it on a typewriter instead of my computer. The inefficiency was mindboggling and made no sense. Today I’d wonder if she was concerned about EMF. But that couldn’t have been the case because the computer was on the other side of a field, and there was no such thing as Wi-Fi, and we didn’t even have dial-up.

The screaming irrationality was bad enough, but behind the words was energy so intense I felt I was in a battle for my life – I think if it had been visible, it would have looked like the wizard battle in Harry Potter. When she finally wound down, I stumbled away, feeling like I’d lost the battle with my worst enemy.

I literally couldn’t catch my breath. Gasping for air, I went to another friend’s house, and we ended up at Virginia Brown’s house, hoping her Quantum Touch would help. Virginia cleared some energy, and I could breathe freely again.

That’s when my life changed completely – she handed me a life-changing BioElectric Shield!

I’m open but skeptical. I didn’t see how this little pendant would make much difference when fighting with a force of darkness. I hate to use that term, but it’s all I can think of to describe what I was experiencing.

I put the Shield on and didn’t feel a massive surge of energy or anything with the Shield. No “aha moment” – yet.

Standing My Own

The next run-in with Jane went completely differently. I didn’t feel the force of her energy. I let her run down, getting it all off her chest.I could calmly tell her this behavior didn’t work for me and that I’d talk to her again when she was ready for a rational discussion. Unlike before the Shield, I could still think and react like a competent human. I felt clear and strong in the middle of an argument for possibly the first time I can recall.

Did the Shield save the day as far as our working relationship? Nope, I was out the door within a month. But I could do it calmly, on my terms, and not out of fear or in a knee-jerk reaction. Just that was life-changing, in the past, when it was time to go, something dramatic had to happen to help me move on, but now, centered and grounded, I could take charge.

The Shield was life-changing in so many ways. Its profound impact is so great that I could probably write a book about it.  

Actually, I’m sure I have written a book in the over 200 blogs I’ve written on the subject.

In addition to what seemed like an almost miraculous ability to handle the energy with Jane, I started noticing that I could work at my computer without getting tired. I could go into town shopping without feeling “malled,” i.e., tired, spacey, and truly awful. When I was around someone in emotional pain, I could feel it at the moment, but I didn’t “keep it.” It no longer became my pain as well. I felt much lighter, freer, and more focused.

Another life-changing BioElectric Shield moment of Increased Perception – a 14k Level 4 Shield

Another shift happened in 1997 when I “moved up” to a 14K gold Shield. I was at an expo in Seattle, talking with people and testing Shields. I’ve always been intuitive…well, that’s a big duh. I am an empath. I could often get a sense of how the Shield was making a difference for the person. As soon as I put on the gold Shield, my intuition increased 100%. I was feeling and “seeing” exactly what shifted when they put the Shield on. I could see the pain leave a neck, feel the energy go from their head to their feet (grounding), back straightening subtly, sadness and emotional pain either leaving or becoming softer, more manageable, thinking processes getting clearer, and so much more. I was stunned.

I soon learned that ability works over the phone as well. When talking with someone about a Shield, I can sense pretty accurately which one will be best for them. Most of the time, I’m happy to say the people I’m talking to accept what I’m saying and seldom even ask me how I know. Initially, I was afraid to blurt out my recommendations, but I know I have this gift for a reason, and I can use it to help people.

A few years later, I upgraded to the 14k Gold Diamond Shield, which does everything the other Shield did, strengthening my connection to my life purpose. Anything not aligned with that purpose just seemed to fall away naturally.

Gemstone Jewelry In the fall of 2008, I began to examine how various gemstones could enhance the protective and healing effects of the BioElectric Shield. After making a few “Shield energy necklaces,” I was convinced that my jewelry was beautiful, fun, and had additional healing qualities. Since then, I’ve studied stones and their properties, paying particular attention to the magical transformation that happens when combined. Much like the Shield, the combined properties of the stones in my jewelry are more potent than the same combination of stones loose in your hand. As I worked increasingly with the gemstones, I could “tune into” the stones and know exactly how they needed to be combined and what they would do for the wearer.
