“How dare you do aura reading on politicians without their permission?”
So began a stinging e-mail received yesterday from a reader. Apart from “Rhonda’s” rage, it was a good question, not just for those of us who do aura reading but for every skilled empath who does the occasional judicious empath merge.
Quick definitions: Aura reading means delving into the human energy field. The way I do and teach it, you can choose from 50 databanks in every chakra. You can learn about gifts of the soul and also about STUFF (problems like cords of attachment). You can do aura reading on yourself, aura reading on anyone you meet, even aura reading on strangers.
When you have had as much experience as I have (not to worry about talent for aura reading, because you definitely have that already), you can also use aura reading and empath merge techniques in some fancier ways. Imagine, you can do aura reading or empath merge on anyone you, or a client, has ever known. And at any time the person was known, because all that information is stored up in you or your client.
So you could do an aura reading on your ex, comparing how he felt about you emotionally on the first day you met versus what was going on in that same aura reading databank on the last day you saw each other.
Aura reading is not the same thing about being an empath. Empaths are born, not made. (In America, I estimate that 1 in 20 people was born as an empath.) As you regular blog readers know, you can do really amazing in-depth readings of people that I call “empath merges.” That happens when you combine talent as an empath with skill and a quality technique for turning your empath gift(s) ON.
Any empath-merge, unlike an aura reading, takes you inside the person’s skin. Just in consciousness, not to worry! Otherwise it could get crowded in there.
ARE ETHICS IMPORTANT FOR AURA READING AND EMPATH-MERGE?
You betcha! Knowledge is power. If you believe that, there is clearly a lot of power available for you when doing aura reading.
As an empath, I am delighted to proclaim that you empath readers also have oodles of power in your future, if you will only claim it.
So when is it fair to boost your knowledge and power by doing aura reading or empath merge? I can’t decree ethics from on high but I can share with you how I have sorted this out for myself, after wrestling with the question.
DOING aura reading or an empath-merge? I believe that you have the right to do that whenever you wish.
TELLING OTHERS what you find after doing aura reading or an empath-merge? That’s where discretion and ethics converge.
If the person is running for public office or agrees to be interviewed on the evening news or, even, has put his photo on Facebook, that is a public appearance. You have the right, I believe, to comment in public about aura reading databanks that will affect public life.
What if you find personal information, like discovering that the person is a narcissist or a drunk? Again, I think discernment is needed along with the aura reading or empath merge. I wouldn’t necessarily out the drunk right there on Facebook. But if I were doing a Relationship Report for you, or doing some other kind of aura reading report, I wouldn’t hesitate to give out that information in a confidential aura reading.
Honestly, if you’re dating Mr. Small, wouldn’t you like to know sooner, rather than later, if:
- He’s a drunk or drug addict.
- He’s a narcissist or psychic vampire.
- He’s cruel as a lover.
- He’s a power freak.
- He’s seriously stingy or wildly extravagant.
- He’s physically abusive.
- Lying is a way of life for him.
For you, that kind of aura reading information is hardly idle gossip. You’re dating the man. It could become a matter of life and death.
INFORMATION VS. PSYCHIC COERCION
Recently we ran a blog conversation about coercion, as suggested by an online teacher of empaths. I think it is very important to say that I advocate using specific techniques of aura reading and empath merge. Okay, they are techniques I have developed and tested. 🙂
I advocate using these techniques, not just experimenting with any old aura reading or empath merge practices. Subtler levels of life are also more powerful levels. Would you rather have someone experiment with your shirt or your genes?
All the techniques in my books and workshops have been designed carefully and tested so that the person doing the aura reading or empath merge:
- Is protected
- Doesn’t hurt or coerce anyone receiving the aura reading or empath merge
- There will be maximum accuracy
- The exercise, in itself, will help the aura reader or empath become wiser, not weaker
- And the aura reader or empath is especially likely to succeed, gaining quality results in a way that is easy
See LINKS at the end of this post for more about the resources I offer. And, whether you choose to study in depth with me or not, please do study with a professional teacher. Find someone with skill and experience who can guide you at subtle levels. I know it’s counter-culture in our everything-goes Internet age, but I believe teaching aura reading and skills for empaths to be a sacred responsibility, something very serious indeed.
Conceivably, there could be practices, like the one described in that other blog entry, where aura reading or empath merge could be mixed up with changing a person, hurting a person, attempting to influence or heal or do something of one’s own choosing.
Now that’s off limits, in my opinion.
You’re not going to have that problem, or horrid karmic consequences, if you’re using the techniques of aura reading and empath merge in any of my books. Period. And neither will those people who receive your aura reading or empath merge.
Develop skills as an empath with this simple, inexpensive tutoring session between pages, Empowered by Empathy. In America or Canada, you can order it 24/7 with a toll-free number: 800-345-6665. Or use this magic empath button to order online. (Just teasing about that name. Its regular old ordering, with money, that helps to keep me blogging and, otherwise, doing this wonderful work.)
If you prefer audiobooks, youre in luck with the audio edition of Empowered by Empathy. And you can hear a free sample by scrolling down the page to which this link takes you.
Sometimes an empath-in-training will prefer personal mentoring. This can be done over the phone or in person. Empath Empowerment is a skill set, not just a wish. It takes some learning, and the great thing about study of this kind is that you just get one session at a time. One session might do it for you, or maybe you might need several, but either way you will only commit to the time and cost that is appropriate for you. These sessions are still $125 for 55 minutes. To set one in motion, start by ordering a personal session here.
Try one of these sessions also if youre not sure youre an empath.
As an empath, or simply a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), or if you worry that you are under psychic attack, you may find a great deal of relief by doing a personal session of Aura Transformation. This will involve healing with Energy Spirituality, probably including my cutting a cord of attachment.
Another way to free you up as an empath is Regression Therapy. My specialty in this field is Energy Release Regression Therapy, which is done in person here in metro D.C. (Sterling, Virginia, to be precise). If you are having trouble developing skill as an empath or suffer from other problems described in detail here this method of healing could be just what youve been seeking.
