Deeper Perception Made Practical

The Worst Technique for an Empath

 

Yesterday I graduated a new group of 40 Skilled Empaths. They came from many parts of Japan, with varied backgrounds but two things in common. All began the weekend workshop as unskilled empaths and all graduated with skills firmly in place.

Skills of Empath Empowerment(TM) are easy, once you’ve learned them — comparable to riding a bicycle. And these skills aren’t just easy and super-effective but simple. You learn to make a slight, natural shift of consciousness that wakes you up from inside. A side effect of techniques like “Coming Home” is to help any empath become more vibrantly, authentically alive.

By contrast, I was told about a technique this weekend, a brave attempt at becoming a Skilled Empath. Once this approach was explained clearly to me by a workshop participant, I realized that for years I had been hearing about the technique in bits and pieces. Only I never fully accepted that people could actually be doing such a thing. Oh, the horror!

And you, Blog Lurker, or even Blog-Buddy, may be one of these people! Since I published the first book for empaths, early in this new milennium, more and more empaths have come to appreciate that they routinely take on STUFF from other people. It stinks.

Whether emotions, physical sensations, fear of going to hell — it’s all just astral-level debris. Or, to put this in the language of psychology, unskilled empaths take other people’s problems and deposit them right into their own subconscious minds.

Well, the coping skill that my student described doesn’t have a name, so I will call it, “The Unskilled Empath’s Rosary.” When you notice that you have taken on something, you stop and figure out who really owns the problem. That is supposed to clear everything up.

Or, with a variation on The Unskilled Empath’s Rosary, you try to somehow “send it back” to the other person. Or you attempt to think your way out of the problem so it won’t bother you any more.

CRYABLE

Of all the useless, time-consuming, ridiculous techniques! So laughable, it’s cryable!

When you’re an unskilled empath, of course you will constantly take on STUFF from others. As described in my upcoming book for empaths, to be published this September, a born empath constantly does quick, not-conscious, unskilled Empath Merges. This causes the unskilled empath to take on STUFF, carry it right into his/her aura and live with it for a while.

This STUFF has a physical substance, on the level of auras. You could think of it like items of physical garbage — an empty soup can here, the cardboard roll from TP there.

With The Unskilled Empath’s Rosary, you are fingering each item and saying a kind of prayer over it. Puhleeze!

Even the most devoted Catholics don’t say the Rosary all day long. And they don’t lovingly touch each bead as a kind of psychometry: “Gee, where did this fear come from? Was it from Uncle Murgatroyd or maybe my neighbor’s cat?”

Once garbage is in your aura, don’t stop to analyze it. Get the smelly mess out. You need a technique on the level of auras to remove STUFF that has gone into your aura, such as the First Aid Technique in Empowered by Empathy.

The psychological approach of analyzing is fine if you want a meaningful hobby. Would you also do this with your physical garbage? Personally, I’d much rather take out the trash.

(And, of course, in Japan, that means multiple garbage cans, each one neatly labeled in writing I don’t understand. Although sometimes translation is thoughtfully offered. There will, for instance, be a separate recycle bin for “Pet Bottles.” I’m still trying to understand that one. To me, they just look like used plastic bottles.)

BEWARE OBSESSIVE SELF-IMPROVEMENT

Since The Unskilled Empath’s Rosary doesn’t work well, practitioners compensate by doing this technique all day long. Constantly being watchful over your thoughts? I thought that went out with the old milennium!

Students have taught ME a lot during my four weekend workshops (this Japanese Teaching Tour #9). The biggest surprise for me was having The Unskilled Empath’s Rosary articulated. And the second-biggest surprise was learning about so many other ways that people today are CONSTANTLY doing some healing technique or other.

In one workshop, I learned about an otherwise professional healer who spent 45 minutes teaching her students “all about how to cut cords of attachment.”  Supposedly, you would cut all your cords at once. But then, if you thought about any of the people involved even once, the cord would come back. So you’d have to do your technique all over again.

Apart from futile techniques like this, that weren’t visibly obvious while I watched my students, let me tell you what I saw at the start of every one of my four weekend workshops. Some of the most sophisticated, highly motivated course participants had the equivalent of full-time jobs.

They weren’t just sitting there, handout at the ready, taking my workshop. They multi-tasked, doing tapping techniques or EFT. They were Reiki-ing themselves like crazy. Many would close their eyes for long stretches of time, aurically lifting right out of their physical bodies.

Is there something YOU do to make your life better or heal yourself? Do you give reality a perpetual subtext, all for the sake of a better life?

Aw, cut that out. Any technique which demands that much time and attention isn’t giving you much of a payoff. The cure could be just as bad as the disease.

All the techniques I teach in workshops and books are SIMPLE. They’re co-created with God, so you don’t need to do heavy lifting.

Whatever techniques you choose, for whichever purpose, do consider the payoff. Maybe your favorite Rosary practice is more a cherished habit than a technique that brings you results.

VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY

Maybe you’ve heard of the lifestyle known as “Voluntary Simplicity,” where you toss out the things you don’t need, take a deep breath, and enjoy your life more.

What about practicing Voluntary Simplicity with spiritual and psychic and psychological practices?

Once I had a student in a workshop here in Japan, who was clearly addicted to closing her eyes and tripping around in her consciousness. Early in every workshop, I ask my students to refrain from doing other techniques until the workshop is over. It’s only common sense, because you can’t find out what my techniques can do for you unless you stop doing other techniques.

But that wasn’t possible for this student, “Maxi.” She found it impossible to stop doing her techniques with eyes closed, and kept doing them much of the time. On the first day of our four-part workshop, Maxi also needed to step outside into the hallway, listening through an open door, because she was picking up so much STUFF from the other course participants.

By the end of Day One, she was able to spend a whole hour with the rest of the group, squirming there in the very back row and, mostly, slamming her eyelids shut. (Because Maxi may have been troubled but she was also very courageous.)

Halfway through Day Two, Maxi was in the classroom to stay. She could even do some of the exercises, paired up with a partner.

By our second weekend workshop, Maxi was visibly different. Not just able to keep her eyes open for hours at a time, she was also considerably more able to connect with other people.

Fast-forward to graduation. Whenever possible, when handing out graduation certificates I give each workshop participants a few minutes to tell the group about their biggest Aha!s. When Maxi started to speak, everyone paid close attention because she was now dramatically less freaky.

“For many years, I have been a teacher for Twinkletoes.” (Actually, Maxi named a different group. I’d never heard of this group and was having the interpreter whisper into my ear. And right after translating this sentence, my interpreter gasped and whispered to me, “That’s a cult here in Japan, a very intense one.”)

Maxi continued, “I loved all my Twinkletoes practices. I would get messages from trees, even stars. I was constantly getting messages. Only I became so sensitive that I couldn’t stand being around people. Maybe you noticed the first day how often I had to be in the hallway.

“Well, I’ve changed a lot, becoming a Skilled Empath. I’ve learned a lot about myself as a person. You could say I’ve relaxed.

“Yesterday, I even made a decision. I’m going to take a vacation from teaching Twinkletoes. I don’t know yet what I’m going to do in the future. But I do plan to do it as me, myself.”

    Thank you, Rose, for continuing to teach me through your blog!

    As a graduate of your Empath’s Empowerment workshop, I use the First Aid technique and get great results every time. Nevertheless, I do sometimes get caught up in an unskilled empath’s thinking, which you described as “The Empath’s Rosary.”

    For example, since taking the class, I have picked up someone else’s anger. I knew what to do when that happens: do the first aid technique. Instead of doing that right away, I rode the anger for a while. I know better, but I nevertheless got stuck at the “rosary bead” of trying to think my way out of the problem.

    In this instance, I was in a business meeting in which I had no interest in the outcome, so I had been spacing out. My own emotions were boredom and frustration. I suddenly felt a kind of anger which felt new to me: a visceral, growling anger which made me want to bite someone. As soon as I could think again, I thought, “Yuck! This is definitely not my anger.” My next thought was, “Ack! I am not a skilled empath! I am doomed!”

    During the next break in the meeting, I did First Aid out loud.

    I have taken the empath’s empowerment workshop, and I have read and re-read “Empowered by Empathy.” I have learned skills from both, yet I continue to think and act like an unskilled empath at times.

    What can I do to use an empath’s skills better?

    HI Rose,

    I got a smile from your comment on the trash can labeled, “pet bottles”… Because of my industrial design training, PET probably stands for “polyethylene” bottles, it is a very common and highly recyclable form of plastic that most, if not all, plastic bottles are made from, particularly the water bottles…
    Only someone who has studied different types of plastics (commonly used in manufacturing consumer goods…) like me would know this obscure fact…

    : ) best, Lisa

    Rose,

    “They multi-tasked, doing tapping techniques or EFT.”

    OUCH!!
    You pegged me on this one! I’m heavy into tapping.
    Of course, I wouldn’t be following this blog if it (tapping) was working for me…maybe on a temporary basis.
    Blessings!

    CONSTANTINE, LOL.

    LISA, you have solved one of life’s mysteries for me. Thank you!

    I’ll comment on your other comment (related to pot addiction) later. Must move on from this morning’s blog life to the overflowing suitcases, etc.

    SARAH, you put your question so eloquently. I’ll bend my jetlagged mind into an answer the best I can.

    Let’s keep perspective here: You are having very minor discomfort compared to before. And your skills are coming along beautifully. Using your skills over time will definitely bring you 100% effectiveness.

    Meanwhile there is something you can do to shorten that “over time” problem. You know about those sessions offered of Aura Healing and Transformation and Energy Release Regression Therapy. Well, consider doing one at your soonest opportunity.

    When someone like you has a firm command of the techniques needed for Empath Empowerment yet these skills don’t yet produce the desired effects immediately all the time, the place to look for relief is really within yourself. It’s a matter of STUFF.

    Try a few more sessions with me for STUFF removal. Only you know how eventful, dramatic, difficult etc. your life was prior to learning the skill set of Empath Empowerment.

    By way of analogy, Empath Empowerment is like learning principles of nutrition that work with your body. Having STUFF is like needing to tweak your digestive system so it can absorb the nutrients better.

    So keep that analogy in mind in assessing how you are doing with Empath Empowerment. It is a skill set for using your Empath Gifts more effectively, not for removing all the STUFF from all of your lifetimes. The less STUFF in your aura, the more effectively you will be able to use that skill set. Trying to supplement Empath Empowerment with a different skill set, a less effective one, like “The Empath’s Rosary” is not going to remove that STUFF.

    All the skill sets I teach (and use with clients) work synergistically. In general, less STUFF means more effectiveness at Empath Empowerment, Aura Reading, Face Reading, Cutting Cords of Attachment.

    In general, you can do most of this on your own, hence the books and the workshops. But I continue to be a resource for extra-quick and deep STUFF removal through sessions. Here’s a link that may be useful:

    Hi Rose (and any other Emotional Oneness empaths out there!),

    I have some comments/questions about emotional oneness.I do have the book, Empowered by Empathy, and I have been working with the “I Like” and “Coming home” techniques. I do not remember seeing a first aid technique in there–is that in a different book?

    I have been starting to become really aware lately of my empath gift/curse (!) of Emotional Oneness. I would love to learn more about how it works.

    I am curious about when how merging happens, is it when I look into someone’s eyes? When I talk to them? Only if I pay special attention? If somebody sits next to me on the bus and our body’s are touching will I involuntarily experience their emotions? Should I not look at the photos of killers on television?!

    If I am in the proximity of someone I do not want to merge with, what can I do right in that instant? Focus on myself?

    I’ve noticed that I often avoid eye contact with strangers if I’m tired, avoid turning my energy their way so to speak. I’ve noticed that when some people get on the bus, my alarm system goes off: Don’t sit by me! Don’t sit by me! their aura feels intrusive/threatening in some way. Other people feel safe/not threatening.

    I once fainted in the car when my mother was telling me about a health problem she was having: I’m guessing that was Emotional Eneness 🙂

    I’ve noticed that I hate sitting on a seat that was recently vacated! Or overhearing certain conversations on the bus, regardless of the actual content of the conversation.

    I used to think that I was only empathic with people who I had a romantic interest in…now I am starting to notice that if I even look at somebody too long I start forming impressions about their mood/state of mind.

    Anyway, I would appreciate any more info about what it is like for people who have this gift.

    Interesting questions, SUZANNE. To answer, I’m going to take each section of question and treat it as a separate comment. So keep reading.

  9. 9

    Q. SUZANNE: I do have the book, “Empowered by Empathy,” and I have been working with the “I Like” and “Coming home” techniques. I do not remember seeing a first aid technique in there–is that in a different book?

    A. ROSE: The First Aid technique can be found in my upcoming book, now being printed, BECOME THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE ROOM: YOUR 30-DAY PLAN FOR EMPATH EMPOWERMENT.

    Of course, I’ll be teaching it in my Empath Empowerment Intensive in October. Details are here: http://www.roserosetree.com/study.htm#EmpathIntensive

    Some places are still available. Contact Coordinator Julie at JulieSchroedl@msn.com .

    Q. SUZANNE: I have been starting to become really aware lately of my empath gift/curse (!) of Emotional Oneness….

    A. ROSE: You aren’t the first empath to worry that your magnificent lifelong gift is actually a curse.

    This just reveals that you aren’t yet a fully skilled empath. For this, it’s helpful to read “Empowered by Empathy” but that is just the beginning.

    After reading it the first time or two, to get the new and counter-culture concepts, you’ll need to read it slowly and do every single technique.

    Once you learn those techniques, it’s smart to do them daily for a couple of weeks. Then you experience life with your gifts naturally turned OFF in an effortless manner, and it will become clear to you experientially that being born as an empath is a gift. Period.

  11. 11

    Q. SUZANNE: [About Emotional Oneness,] . I would love to learn more about how it works.

    A. ROSE: In the book you now own, “Empowered by Empathy,” see pages 57-84.

    Supplementary information about how any empath gift works is scattered throughout the book, especially pages 1-106 and 107-164 and 227 – 317.

    If you find it tricky taking in information by reading — as many people do, when the information is about subtle matters — you might consider investing in “Empowered by Empathy” as an audiobook.

    Sample it for free here: http://www.roserosetree.com/empathyaudio.htm

  12. 12

    Q. SUZANNE: I am curious about when how merging happens, is it when I look into someone’s eyes? When I talk to them? Only if I pay special attention? If somebody sits next to me on the bus and our body’s are touching will I involuntarily experience their emotions?

    A. ROSE: These are such good questions, Suzanne, that I have answered them at great length, with diagrams, etc. in the upcoming book “Become the Most Important Person in the Room: Your 30-Day Plan for Empath Empowerment.”

  13. 13

    Q. SUZANNE: Should I not look at the photos of killers on television?

    A. ROSE: Even if you weren’t an empath, it’s just plain dumb to look at photos of killers on television or anywhere else.

    What is served by imprinting this onto your conscious mind and subconscious mind?

    It’s a Kali Yuga thing, IMHO, that reading these stories or watching them on tabloid TV is considered “being responsible” or “entertainment.”

  14. 14

    Q. SUZANNE: If I am in the proximity of someone I do not want to merge with, what can I do right in that instant? Focus on myself?

    A. ROSE: Yes. For much more detail and strategy,read the part of “Empowered by Empathy” about holding a space, starting on Page 108.

    For a whole lot more information, see the upcoming book “Become the Most Important Person in the Room: Your 30-Day Plan for Empath Empowerment.”

  15. 15

    Q. SUZANNE: I once fainted in the car when my mother was telling me about a health problem she was having: I’m guessing that was Emotional Oneness.

    A. Actually I would call that a different empath gift, Physical Oneness.

    For all you Blog-Buddies who wonder which gift(s) you have as an empath, let me tell you about a great reasource: “Empowered by Empathy,” Chapter 3, Pages 33-56.

    Even someone like you, Suzanne, who has already read the book once, might want to read it again. Now that you have started moving in the direction of becoming a Skilled Empath, you will be able to understand the information more clearly.

  16. 16

    Q. SUZANNE: Anyway, I would appreciate any more info about what it is like for people who have this gift.

    A. ROSE: Good news here. I wrote an entire novel just to do this, because sometimes a story will give more info. about what it feels like, day by day, going from being an unskilled empath to the much more empowered state of being a Skilled Empath.

    That novel is called “The Roar of the Huntids” and you can learn more about it here:

    and purchase it by calling 800-345-6665, tollfree and available 24/7 in the U.S. and Canada.

    Thanks so much, Suzanne, for asking such interesting and heartfelt questions.

  17. 17
    Suzanne Schroedl says:

    Thanks Rose!

    I am very excited that the new book will be covering a lot of this. Awesome!

    Yes, when I read the book the first time I doubted that I even was much of an empath. I love to go shopping, I enjoy group events, I’ve never considered myself to get “malled” other than being physically tired after outings. I don’t ever burst out laughing involuntarily in tense situations. The only gift I thought I might have is holistic knowing, because I do often take on responsibility for hosting at parties.

    So, I did not read as carefully as I might have. I will reread it and check out your novel as well!

    Suzanne

  18. 18

    SUZANNE, reading the book quickly your first time around is actually best. “Empowered by Empathy” is dense, full of concepts written about for the first time in English (and in other languages as well).

    It can take a while for all you Empath Pioneers to become comfortable with these new concepts. Then it’s time to go back to the book.

    Also, hilariously, many readers think that unless every anecdote, example, and joke resonates perfectly for them, nothing else in the book applies. Yoicks! 😉

    Glad you’re past that now, Suzanne. Choose the parts of the book that DO help you and then you can have the results.

  19. 19

    SUZANNE, it sure has been fun being your pen-blog-pal today. One general point still remains to be said, I think.

    Reading over this exchange about what is involved in becoming a Skilled Empath, such as the use of the how-to book “Empowered by Empathy,” it may seem a little intimidating.

    Readers, keep in mind the story that unfolded here at this blog today. Suzanne, you were having a bunch o’ problems with becoming a Skilled Empath, and I answered one good question after another. But the real problem, as you mentioned in your last comment of this series, was… to paraphrase:

    “Oh well, I guess maybe, perhaps, one reason why I have had some difficulties with becoming a Skilled Empath is that I skimmed over the book.”

    Books aren’t to be worshipped. Not mine, anyway! But it’s so easy in our age of Twitter and TV and Dummies approaches to barely read at all. Most publishers prefer “high concept books.” They are designed that people expect something “new” to be a rehash of all they know all ready, with one cute new gimmick added. Then the reader can feel very proud of self and masterful.

    By contrast, the system of Empath Empowerment (TM) is a complete, and extremely different, method for doing something that every born empath can do successfully. Yet it is definitely different.

    Developing this skill set really is about as easy/tricky as learning to ride a bicycle. Nobody else can give you the balance, but someone can teach you how to find it. I’m honored by receiving your trust if you will let that person be me.

    Do readers and students manage to succeed at becoming Skilled Empaths? Yes, they really do, magnificently.

    Suzanne Schroedl says:

    Hi Rose,

    Yes, indeed it has been fun. Now, you make a good point but let me be clear that I am usually an in-depth reader, not a twitter reader. I had some resistance to your writing style when I first started reading your books, perhaps because your style (light, fun-loving, and yes, smart-alecky !) is very different from my own.

    I have no doubt that I have a frozen block about it :-)and I have come to appreciate that your lightness of approach does not mean light content. And I value your wisdom very highly and so appreciate the time/effort you put into teaching/healing! I feel very lucky to have met you.

    I read what you said on another post about stuff in one’s aura making it difficult to learn the skill sets–and I think that this is probably the case with me because I have noticed since the cord was cut to my mother that I am more sensitive to energy. It makes me want to cut a cord a week. I know that would not be wise.

    Anyway, I look forward to learning everything I can from you and to passing what I learn along as well.

    With deepest thanks!

    Suzanne

  21. 21

    SUZANNE, you’re so welcome.

    I do appreciate where you’re coming from, and that is the main reason why I lavished so much TLC on responding to your question.

    Cutting a cord of attachment once a week would actually be just about perfect. Use that systematic system in “Cut Cords of Attachment” and remember to start with doing all your Minor Cords. Or else come to me, as you can, for releasing the Major Cords. And we’ll take it from there.

    Incidentally, I know that the combo of deep, innovative content and silly humor is quirky. You’re not the first reader to be put off by it.

    This is just the best way I know for communicating the leading-edge material, especially since I work in fields that are dismissed (so far) by the big shots in psychology, medicine, etc.

    I figure, if there are some jokes along the way, the knowledge won’t be so intimidating.

    If you compare the amount of humor in my books over time, the trend is for funnier and lighter.

    The majority of my readers do seem to like this. Still, I’ll tell you what is the weirdest part for me:

    Some readers and publishers only notice the humor. They assume that everything I am writing about is established, universal knowledge. So there is no acknowledgment that the content is pioneering.

    I’m most grateful to the Divine Beings who have helped me to write some first books on certain topics — first books in the English language and, far as I can tell from responses from foreign publishers, in any language. Specifically, there has been the first book about cutting cords of attachment and the first book for systematically helping empaths.

    With Face Reading, I didn’t write the first book but was given a completely different system in the 5,000-year history of physiognomy. Which is why I’m known, within my field, as “The Mother of American Physiognomy.”

    With Aura Reading, that had also been practiced for thousands of years before I got into the act. But, within that field, I’ve had the privilege of bringing out a highly counter-culture system as well. As you know.

    And if I didn’t do this laughing all the way, there’s a good chance that by now I’d be crying or snarling. Because not every reader or student is as appreciative as My Suzanne.

    Still, it is strange when people assume that I just toss off entertaining how-to books with no innovation involved. With practice, I’m sure I could become much more pompous. But I’ve been reluctant to give myself that kind of practice.

    Actually, I have worked quite hard to get all my acknowledgements of intellectual property from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. You know:

    * Empath Empowerment (TM)
    * Aura Reading Through All Your Senses (R)
    * Face Reading Secrets (R)
    * 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment (R)

    My friend, and mentor, Bill Bauman, Ph.D., is fully aware of the pathos in my writing career. It was so sweet of him, when he wrote the back cover review for “Cut Cords of Attachment,” that he started this way:

    “Engaging and fun to read, this how-to is based on important discoveries that deserve to be considered seriously.” etc.

  22. 22
    Suzanne Schroedl says:

    You are a pioneer! And I understand where you are coming from–you deal with some heavy heavy auras!
    Humor is totally the way to go 🙂 Thanks for all the TLC. I would love to cut a cord a week, but first I need to master questioning so that I know where the cord is. Do you have a suggestion for an intention or type of session that might help me be better able to recognize my own answers to questioning?

  23. 23

    Aw, SUZANNE, just use all the techniques in the book, one step at a time. Start with Minor cords of attachment. Confidence will develop with practice.

    Wow, one week to go to the Empath Empowerment Intensive. I can’t wait. It will be great to meet you in person, Rose. See you soon!

    Rachel says:

    Hi Rose,

    I have a friend who is trying to sell me the benefits of EFT, but I am not yet convinced!

    What is your opinion of EFT? I’d like to make a cheeky request that you do an aura reading of someone before and after an EFT session (not sure if that is at all possible). It would be fascinating to see if EFT truly heals or just ‘numbs’ troublesome feelings.

    I know some people wax lyrical about how EFT can help with longstanding conditions… but can it really? Are the effects long lasting? Or does it become another ‘fix?’

    Thanks for your thoughts!

  26. 26

    Believe it or not, RACHEL, this often opinionated gal does not have any particular opinion about EFT, other than that results may differ greatly depending on the practitioner’s skill.

    Same problem with checking out before-and-after photos — that would relate to the success of the practitioner. And you would need a third photograph years later to really get the long-term benefits.

  27. 27

    One practical suggestion from your Comment 25, RACHEL…

    I was thinking about the impact of “I have a friend who is trying to sell me the benefits of” XYZ.

    Note the confusion generated. Evidently your friend explained once and you weren’t particularly impressed. Then your friend kept trying additional times, without enthusiasm from your side. (Did I extrapolate that right?)

    For all of you Blog-Buddies who are interested in Energy Spirituality or reading people deeper as a skilled empath, or maybe interested in the aura reading skills — that energetic literacy component — please do not try to sell your friends on any of it.

    The respectful thing is to mention it once, just a bit of an introduction. Then leave it.

    If your friend has questions, answer them. Otherwise, leave your friend be.

    People have pretty strong radar for what will really help them.

    What to do with leftover enthusiasm? Go to Amazon.com and review my books, or go click on “I like.”

    Make sense, RACHEL?

  28. 28
    Rachel says:

    Thanks, Rose.

    Some great pieces of wisdom in your responses – “People have pretty strong radar for what will really help them.”

    I love that.

    And I love how you mention the need to assess the practitioner’s skill. So obvious! And so easy to overlook.

    Mark says:

    Always felt different than others, had fear of crowds, began to lose my hearing and then diagnosed with bipolar and severe depression; my life has been a constant struggle, but early on I felt likex and wanted to be a healer, which I do through music played spontaneously. I have healed persons other afflictions with my hands. But no formal training, so I remain stuck on s violent world I escape from by smoking pot. The doctors have me on 32 pills a day, and that is rediculous. Any help?

  30. 30

    MARK, it can be helpful to become a skilled empath. See empath links at the end of the article I just published today.

    Beyond that, it sounds as though you need support from a professional, whether an addictions counselor or a psychotherapist who specializes in recovery.

    When you have smoothed out and are able to function better, you might consider some sessions with me of aura healing and transformation. In session I’ll be able to determine if you are ready for me to help you or not. I would love to help you if I can.

    Here is very, very important advice for you, MARK. Also for anyone else who does healing for others as a self-taught practitioners.

    It’s lovely that you wish to help others. But please, cut that out. Doing energy work while stoned is not safe for you and can contribute to your problems.

    Sad to say, the long-term help for someone you try to heal may not be what you think, either.

    Now, here is very, very important advice for you, MARK. (Also for anyone else who does healing for others as a self-taught practitioners.)

    It’s lovely that you wish to help others and bring them healing. But please, cut that out. Doing energy work while stoned is not safe for you and can contribute to your problems.

    Sad to say, the long-term help for someone you try to heal may not be what you think, either.

    Many well-meaning people believe that if they’re really talented, or spiritually graced, lovely healing will just flow through them.

    To be blunt, that is foolish.

    I have read auras of people who do this sort of thing. It isn’t good for those people. Better to use your talent to excel when you study with a balanced teacher who has real professional skills.

    Learn them and your talent will shine through.

    Thanks for reaching out, MARK.
