SANDRA HAERING’s recent guest post about Enlightenment as a skilled empath was thought provoking. She sure got me thinking… about the relationship between gaining empath skills and moving into Enlightenment.
Empath skills aren’t part of the usual conversation about Awakening or Enlightenment. But since when was this blog concerned with the usual conversation? About anything?
I’m a member of that growing group of people in Householder Enlightenment. It was never my objective to become Enlightened. I did have a goal for decades, however, which was: “To live a life of love in thought, word, and deed.”
How self-denying; how holy! At least that was how I interpreted that goal. In retrospect, I was probably aiming for a type of Enlightenment more typical of religious devotees secreted away in convents, monasteries or caves.
The problem was that I didn’t live in a cave, but amongst many family, friends and strangers. I was also an unskilled empath.
A Dangerous Combination
That is a dangerous combination, a person who:
Personally feels everyone’s physical and emotional pain, and
Are you interested in Enlightenment? Today’s post describes how this particular Enlightenment Coach can — and can’t — help you to reach Enlightenment.
So Many Spiritual Seekers Would Love to Reach Enlightenment
A comment today from JNANA included a sentence that really moved me. Two of the candidates she proposed had been successful at making it onto my Enlightenment Life List. From her beautiful mystic’s heart JNANA wrote: CONTINUE READING →
Energy healing skills — you’ve come to the right place for that today! Because this seven-part series about psychic coercion concludes here. It has been all about helping you to gain important skills for self-healing.
Understandably, many of you Blog-Buddies have been sidetracked in the past. You didn’t understand what psychic coercion really is.
Yet this blog can give you something I didn’t have time to do in a book. (Which is already jam-packed with healing techniques, dedicated skill sets.) Hereyou can learn more about the practical bits. That’s essential for developing skills, knowing when to use which healing technique, when to stop worrying unnecessarily, etc.
There’s a survey I take whenever I can. Blog-Buddies, I ask this question whenever I have a client or student who is a psychotherapist or counselor or psychiatrist. I’ll ask that mental health professional:
What if you have a client/patient who decides to supplement therapy with you by doing “Analyze myself”-type sessions on his own? Do you think it is a good idea for people to attempt to be their own psychotherapist?
The answer has been “No.” Every single time. “No, no, no, are you kidding?”
One reason is that a session of psychotherapy requires a professional psychotherapist, not just one extra-smart client.
Another reason is that even the brightest client who is not trained as a psychotherapist… is NOT a psychotherapist.
And even professional psychotherapists don’t do sessions on themselves. They respect the work enough to go to another psychotherapist.
What’s the most popular reason for “No”? The client may start analyzing his life, rather than living it.
“I have had one heck of a bad love relationship that went on for a few years before my husband…. He is no longer in my life, but I would LOVE to have a cord cutting session for that past relationship. However I’ve been told not to ask for a cord cutting session. So how do I appropriately go about asking to have that done?”
Blog-Buddies, I love creating community with you here at this blog. Likewise with you Brave Empaths who are hanging out with me at the Empath Empowerment Group on Facebook. (Just a bit more than three weeks old and, already, we have over 100 members. Three cheers for you early adopters!)
What kind of community, though?
Within 24 hours, we had these two comments.
At this blog, from smart, couragerous JOANIE, as part of a self-healing series on psychic coercion:
“I live with a family member who is constantly nagging me. Whenever I see the person I know that what he is going to say to meis – nagging…. So what you would recommend, Rose, is….”
Meanwhile, at the Empath Empowerment Group, came this post from our brainy new group member, JANET:
“Is it okay for me to ask for tips on how to deal with a drama king of a partner?”CONTINUE READING →
Blog-Buddies, I’m passionate about actually getting skills. Compared to what? Randomly playing with energy, feeling good, being “nonjudmental.” That style and preference is part of my controversial message in Dawn Henkel’s Teleseminar.
What is an aura, and what does it mean to read it?
Also, how can you find a good teacher?
Learn about this and more…
So much was discussed during my conversation with Dawn Henkel about energetic literacy, aura reading, and Skilled Empath Merge.
