Of all types of intuitive readings, my favorite has got to be empath merges. It’s the ultimate way to sample an energy field, one step farther out/in from doing aura readings or other spiritual readings.
Contrary to 99% of the conversations I find in cyberspace, being an empath is NOT necessarily about weakness and suffering. Instead it involves talent, and talent with you… from birth.
As for the science-fiction school of comment about empaths (“I am a fallen angel empath” etc.), I just have to say, “Are you kidding?”
However long you make being an empath a fantasy conversation, for just that long you are dooming yourself to suffer. Becoming skilled as an empath takes some care and attention here on the earth plane!
This is true regardless of which type of empath you may be. All unskilled empaths suffer.
Yet you’re not born to suffer, whether your (biggest) gift is emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, even animal. The definition of empath, after all, is not “born to stress out, then whine.”
Instead, being an empath simply means that you have at least one significant, trainable gift for directly experiencing what it is like to be another person. Whatever your gift set, you can become a skilled empath.
When this happens, you will habitually turn your empathy OFF most of the time, the turn it ON at will, for wisdom or service to others. (Ideally, for the latter, you will use dedicated techniques that make the experience extra strong, while protecting yourself against taking on fear, pain, etc. from the person.)
I call this incredibly fun act of service doing a “skilled empath merge.”
WHO NEEDS ROLE MODELS?
This morning, GingerSnaps at ExperienceProject.com got me thinking that it is really important to have role models as an empath.
Which people do you know, like GingerSnaps, who have found their way into having their gifts turned OFF most of the time? These empaths don’t complain about how much they suffer because of being talented. They have learned how to harness that talent as part of a glorious life.
Are there any public figures, like celebrities, who are role models for you?
And do you consider YOURSELF a skilled empath?
One glowing example who comes to mind for me is the singer Alanis Morissette.
I did an empath merge and aura reading about her for a newspaper interview. Actually, I would be glad to share it. Although it wouldn’t be legal to post it here (Chicago Sun-Times articles are copyrighted, after all), I could personally send you a copy if you send me an email here: Rose[at]Rose-Rosetree.com
CONTEST AND A FIRST IN CYBERSPACE
Let’s create a list of skilled empaths who have juicy, sane, happy lives. Might be a first anywhere in cyberspace! Please put just one name in your comment. Fill up the rest of that comment by telling us Blog-Buddies about this person and why you believe that he or she is a skilled empath.
Whoever brings in the most comments, I’ll choose one of those people for a detailed Skilled Empath Merge here at “Deeper Perception Made Practical.”
And that skills are about way more than what is commonly called “protection.”
Let’s celebrate everyone who has found a personal way to be skilled, whatever that way, so long as it works. My how-to, Empowered by Empathy, provides a reliable set of techniques, but they’re not the only techniques in the world.
This contest will close May 31, so I will just have time to do this special post, and proudly display our list, before I go to Japan for a month. You know, to teach about becoming a skilled empath!
