Deeper Perception Made Practical

Molecular Empaths

Molecular empath, Rose Rosetree, coming out of a skilled empath merge

What is a molecular empath? How can you recognize one? What can you do if you ARE one?

Today’s article is meant to be a kind of one-stop shopping trip into the world of  molecular empaths, inspired by popular demand.

What is an empath in the first place (not just a molecular empath)?

?Empaths are born, not made, not developed. Empaths can be trained, however, just like any person with an innate talent.

An empath is born with at least one significant, trainable gift for directly experiencing what it is like to be another person.

That simple.

This ability (or set of abilities) shows in your aura right from you are in the womb.

And I mention this not just theoretically but because, like everything I write about in this article, I have researched it thoroughly. For decades.

Reading this article you have the benefit of my work in this field starting long before I published the first book in English for empaths, “Empowered by Empathy.” I suffered and slogged my way through developing these understandings. And I am perfectly happy to share what I have learned so that you can avoid similar slog!

How have I researched empaths who were still in the womb? I have used skills of energetic literacy to read chakra databanks in the mother, then separated out what belonged to who and read the equivalent chakra datanks in the developing child. Or, in the case of twins, children.

Although this isn’t an easy, beginner’s form of aura reading, I could certainly teach you — every single one of you Blog-Buddies — if you wanted to learn.

I could teach you how to read anyone’s aura. And I could train any of you born empaths to become Skilled Empaths, the whole point of my system of Empath Empowerment(R). However, neither I nor any other teacher can MAKE you a molecular empath, an empath with Emotional Oneness, Emotional Intuition, Physical Oneness, Physical Intuition, Animal Empath Ability, being an Environmental Empath or Mechanical Empath or Plant Empath or Crystal Empath or Spiritual Empath or Intellectual Empath.

About 1 in 20 human beings are born as an empath with at least one of these gifts. That means about 1 in 4 Highly Sensitive Persons or HSPs. Because most people, even most Highly Sensitive Persons, are NOT born as any kind of empath. Period.

A relatively small number of people are born as molecular empaths.

What makes any empath special?

Every empath has the ability, throughout life, to directly experience what it is like to be someone else. Natural empaths, a.k.a. unskilled empaths, constantly do unskilled empath merges.

In an unskilled empath merge, your aura expands to include another person’s aura. You lift out STUFF belonging to that person. It lands inside your aura.

For a very short time, that random person feels better. But no permanent healing has been done, so the person quickly regenerates the same quality of STUFF (i.e., stored emotional and/or spiritual debris on the level of auras and the subconscious mind).

Meanwhile, the unskilled empath is walking around with new STUFF, which may be with that empath for a very long period of time. Techniques of Empath Empowerment(R) are designed to prevent this happening in the first place by using consciousness in an effortless, innocent manner. There is also First Aid help for moving out STUFF, because the emerging empath might slip up from time to time and revert back to having empath gift(s) turn ON without doing a Skilled Empath Merge.

Techniques of Skilled Empath Merge are done after an empath, any kind of empath, has learned basic empath skills — keeping your empath gift(s) turned OFF as a matter of habit. Then you become eligible to safely use a dedicated technique for a minute or two, maximum, to learn from the inside what it is like to be that other person — with clarity, much greater clarity than is available by doing unskilled empath merge.

What makes a molecular empath special?

A molecular empath directly experiences other people at the finest levels of consciousness. Your individual nature has many levels of refinement, from the surface level of life all the way through to the finest, most refined levels of your personal Who You Be.

Every empath makes contact with your Who You Be, a startlingly different experience from being oneself. (Which is why it can be such an amazing, funderful experience doing Skilled Empath Merge with people directly or doing a technique with a photograph like “Darshan” in “Empowered by Empathy” or “Magic Picture” in “Read People Deeper.”

Making contact at this level, akin to physical molecules, brings a deep knowledge of Who You Be. For a skilled empath who is a molecular empath, this is very useful for facilitating healing or teaching. This definitely informs my workshops and personal sessions, for instance. Sometimes people are quite surprised at how I can get in there to find and help solve a problem that depends on a very tiny nuance of consciousness, maybe a habit.

But that’s what molecular empaths can do if they are healers or teachers. We will use our skill sets, like 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment(R) and have a dimension of healing built in because that is the nature of our innate consciousness.

What is it like, being on the receiving end, with Skilled Empath Merge from a Molecular Empath?

Not everyone would notice a difference. Depends on how much you are paying attention, including the clarity of your auric field and how much energetic literacy you have developed.

Some people do notice what’s happening, however. People even notice being in the presence of a molecular empath, whether that person is skilled yet or not skilled. It feels as though the empath knows about you without your saying a word. It’s akin to what was written by Washington Post reporter Hank Stuyver when he interviewed me for a face reading article, “Who Knows What the Nose Shows?”:

“It’s like she’s known you forever… but that’s crazy, becauase you just met. Still, she has decribed youu perfectly, and not just your surface traits. Not a bit of it had anything to do with your being a Leo, your biorhythms, your palm wrinkles or numerology.”

Actually, you could use any of those skill sets, or the face reading skill set I used with Hank, to decorate the experience. But a molecular empath is doing something extra as well. There is a kind of wake-up effect because of having the consciousness of the molecular empath reach you where, usually, you are hidden from other people.

Some folks love it. Some actively feel uncomfortable. Others have a vague sense that something different is happening.

Even the molecular empath may not know what is happening, not until that natural, unskilled empath becomes a skilled empath.

Is a psychic empath the same thing as a molecular empath?

No empath has psychic powers. Not necessarily.

No empath, including a molecular empath, is necessarily left handed. Or has red hair. Or likes listening to The Grateful Dead.

So many attributes and interests are possible for a human being. Often folks mush them together, and not just in personals ads.

But of all the unfortunate combinations of attributes, one of my very least favorites is the term “psychic empath.”

Psychic development, and psychic talents, are lovely. But they have been mushed in with loads of other things.

To take a very specific example, in my system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses(R) I list a dozen possible gifts you might have, life-long, gifts that are a basis for how you will find your greatest success with energetic literacy.

One of those gifts is “Psychic knowing.” That means you spontaneously receive information about people who are far away in space or time, whether past or future; you may have flashes of insight about events, not just people.

This gift for aura reading is not better or worse than any other gift. It is, simply, a gift for deeper perception. Everyone — and that means each of you, Blog-Buddies — is wired to have gifts of your soul that are part of your magnificence in life. Including your gifts for aura reading.

Training for you as an aura reader can go in two different directions. Choose one, at any given time in your life.

  • You might choose developing energetic literacy, reading people’s auras all the way through to chakra databanks. (In which case, woo-hoo! You have found the website. Because this is definitely a skill set I teach.) (And Aura Reading Through All Your Senses(R) is a separage skill set from Empath Empowerment(R), right? That’s why I bothered to get the different trademarks, no easy task, getting a trademark with the USPTO.)
  • A completely different path for aura reading is psychic development, by far the more common route in New Age circles.

You do appreciate that having a gift for psychic knowing does not mean you must pursue psychic development rather than energetic literacy, right? And a mode of study, or set of skills, does not GIVE you a gift of your soul. You appreciate that part, too, right?

So then it will be easy for you to appreciate the other point. (I hope.) Which is that when people start throwing around the term “psychic” along with “empath,” things become really, really confusing.

As someone who has worked extensively in the field of teaching aura reading, plus empath empowerment, I am quite sure that these are completely different fields. And there is no such thing as a psychic empath. Instead:

  • There are skilled empaths and unskilled empaths.
  • There are unskilled empaths who do random unskilled merges which bring them information that could be interpreted as “psychic” or “knowing things in a mysterious fashion” etc.
  • There is psychic development, a field of study that does nothing whatsoever to make a person skilled as an empath. (Separate, different skill set.)
  • There is a perceptual gift called “psychic knowing.” This has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not someone has a completely separate sort of gift for being an empath.

Whew! It’s so important to sort all this out, I think. It isn’t a matter of academic interest or fussiness over theories. I work with real-live students and clients. When they identify themselves in a way that brings confusion, or do a mishmash of seeking in a direction that has been confused in the first place, real people have real-life suffering.

Anyway, what was my reason here for bringing up the confused and confusing notion of “psychic empath”? Because I want to make very, very sure that the term “molecular empath” does not get added to all the other confusion.

You could be in the presence of someone who really is a molecular empath, feel that something woo-woo and unusual is going on, and then slap on whatever label is floating around on the Internet.

  • As of today, “psychic empathy” — you know, that confused and misleading and inaccurate term we have just been discussing together — gets 1,340,000 hits.
  • As of today, “molecular empath” gets 476,000 hits. And “molecular empathy” gets 789,000 hits.
  • But stay tuned. Because one consistent pattern in my service is that concepts I work with become way, way more popular over the years. That’s just how I’m positioned in the work that I co-create. Just google terms like “cutting cords of attachment” or “chakra databanks” or “the power of face reading” 😉 “Cords of attachment” had fewer than 100 hits when I published my how-to book on that topic; while the other two memes had zero hits, back in the day.

To the extent that I can help it, I’m asking you Blog-Buddies to help me here. Whenever you have the chance, please discourage people from thinking that being a molecular empath has anything to do with being either psychic or a so-called “psychic empath.”

How can you recognize a ?????molecular empath?

Seeing one walking down the street, will you recognize a molecular empath? Nope. Same with sitting in a room, or talking on the phone, with a molecular empath.

Apart from a certain internal kind of strangeness, you won’t notice a thing. Even that you might not notice.

And, for heaven’s sake, being human requires all of us to experience many internal kinds of strangeness! One reason to learn energetic literacy skills is to sort them out.

If you are seriously interested in being able to recognize who is an empath of any kind, check out this post about how to recognize an empath.

What can you do if you ARE a molecular empath?

Now there is a simple answer. Get skills as an empath.

By now, many systems are available for making life better as an empath. Empath Empowerment(R), though the first, hasn’t been the only for years.

Be aware that every teacher of empaths will somewhere define what “empath” means. Many teachers of empaths do not define being an empath with much nuance or detail. Use your consumer smarts, Blog-Buddies. It isn’t a good sign if “empath” is defined purely emotionally or in terms of taking on pain or described as being a “psychic empath” or if being an empath is equated with being a Highly Sensitive Person.

If your teacher isn’t clear enough about what it means to be an empath in the first place, how much can you rely on that teacher’s help?

Personally, I think that becoming skilled as an empath is best done with techniques that shift consciousness in easy, effortless, well directed ways. That is what I teach, anyway. And the process of learning Empath Empowerment(R) works for ALL empath gifts, including the one called “molecular empath.”

My personal experience as a molecular empath

?Now it is fun. Once upon a time it was hell, being an empath, including the molecular empath part. I am very grateful to Tantra Maat, who introduced me to the term “molecular empath” and is immensely talented at this, besides being deeply skilled. Likewise I am grateful to Bill Bauman, Ph.D., another highly skilled empath, and molecular empath, who has done many sessions of healing that helped me enormously.

I feel grateful that years ago, I spent a summer of bliss downloading a book that became “Empowered by Empathy,” a skill set that included learnings from long before I incarnated into this lifetime, and a skill set co-created with Divine help.

It took me years, 3 1/2 years, to edit “Empowered by Empathy.” Since its publication, I have continued to develop a clearer understanding about how to be a skilled empath myself and how to train others.

When people use terms like “psychic empath” I have to laugh. Because, as many of you Blog-Buddies may know, I am not a psychic. I don’t have the gift of “psychic knowing.” And despite having friends and colleagues I respect enormously who happen to be professional psychics, I have zero interest in going there.

Being a molecular empath does not mean I do a psychic or science fictioney travel deep within other people’s bodies, knowing all their secrets. Mostly it means that I have a certain transformative power, entraining with clients and students at the very deepest level, to shake them awake.

If I use a technique for skilled empath merge, I may go a bit deeper into the consciousness of the person being researched when compared to what I would do if I didn’t have that gift.

What matters, however, is that everyone has a full set of gifts. That’s you, Blog-Buddies. God has given you that, from back in womb-time, back when you drew up your life contract. You have a complete and magnificent set of gifts for deeper perception. It is perfectly aligned with your spiritual mission as a world server. It is encoded in your auric modeling, your Who You Be.

Explore that and you will move forward most rapidly on your personal path to Enlightenment.

    Other blog posts can help you learn more about molecular empaths

    Mentoring Program Graduate Suzanne-Marie + Molecular Empaths contains some terrific sharing from Blog-Buddies and includes discussion of philtrum definition — something you know about if you are familiar with physiognomy (face reading).

    In a detailed aura reading of Tiger-like tycoon Ratan Tata, there is discussion of his being a molecular empath.

    The blog post on Molecular Empath Alanis Morissette comes from an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times.

    If any of you’all are tracking the intellectual history of the concepts “empath” and “molecular empath” you might find it significant that this interview is probably the first ever in American media to use the term “molecular empath.”

    Three cheers to Paige Weiser, the talented reporter who interviewed me for about 33 separate interviews with the Chicago Sun-Times. It was a delight to work with her.

    Anyway, here is the link:

    As an empath..aside from the usual stuff knowing peoples thoughts/feelings, some of the upsides..

    Cooking is a journey of with all the senses and becoming at one with the dish & cooking process. This was highlighted when my sister asked me how I got steaks perrfect all the time. Briefly my response was, you have to feel the steak, you can feel when the heat touches it halfway and then you can turn it. You can feel for the degree of how well done. I thought this was what it meant to love cooking, so I would just say, well it’s delicious because it was made with love.

    Every questions asked, the answers just formed in my knowing, if I allow it to arise, or I can tunnel there.On the other hand, It’s easy to get lost in a trail of search if many subsequent tunnels that contribute emerge. I learned to keep track by tagging mentally & if I needed to get back there.

    Plants, nature feel FANTASTIC :))

    When things open, you can feel it and it feels wonderful.

    Some of my more specific challenges have been. Sometimes you meet people and you can feel their stuff, maybe it was something they did in some lifetime that was awful. Sometimes I can get stuck because it’s just so yuck, that I don’t even want to go there. I don’t even want to “clean” it up, if there are entities or etc. I know that this is reactionary and in the simplest sense my judgement and usually combined with cellular memories of personal or collective experiences. Honestly I wonder, just because we can feel it, see it, know it, see the tapestry, is it our job to sort it out. It is a constant work. Then my girlfriend says, this is because I am so resistant to the process. This is true in sor far as, it ALWAYS feel fabulous at the end of clearing stuff up however there is enuf on my plate!

    What do other empath, service oriented empaths do? There are some things I definately walk away from. Because honestly Where do we draw the line?

    Rose, I have purchased both your 30 days to become the most important person in the room & cutting cords of attachment. It’s not here yet. I already would like to get your other books as well. I am really looking forward to receiving them.

    Dear N.:

    There is a very important difference between being a skilled empath versus having trippy experiences, although fantastic ones, such as you are reporting.

    It is very, very easy to slip into a spiritual addiction by doing way too much empath merge and way too little human.

    I am not attempting to detract from the beauty of your experiences when I caution you, and any other Blog-Buddies with a similar lifestyle.

    Don’t tunnel places. Exploring how things “open” is not serving you in your human life overall.

    Do not encourage all this exploration. It is not in the interest of your mental health at this time, not your balance as a person or your effectiveness in life.

    I urge you to avoid doing ALL such exploration. Instead, learn how to turn your empath gift(s) OFF.

    The simplest, most cost-effective way is to get a copy of “Become the Most Important Person in the Room.” Start by reading it through, skipping all exercises, and skipping the last three chapters.

    Then do one chapter a day, from the start, including all exercises. Do it nice and sloppy.

    When you are really established at this, it will be appropriate for you to do a VERY small amount of skilled empath merge, meditation practices, etc. No more than 30 minutes total a day.

    Do you understand what I am recommending for you, N.?

    Yet even still, I can end up in a washing machine especially when there is alot going on around me.

    I believe the trauma is that we “react” to the experience. So often I wonder, is there a way to simply be open, be at one with the biggest picture here, so that things don’t affect one as much.

    There are some areas where I develop a maturity/transmuting of the experiences so that there is simply an open-ness receptivity where nothing can catch on.

    Yet other times, I get completely out of whack.

    N. says:

    LOL, Thank You Rose.

    RE: It is not in the interest of your mental health at this time, not your balance as a person or your effectiveness in life. This is SPOT ON.

    Sometimes I feel guilty if I don’t address things.

    I am really looking forward to getting your books.

  13. 13

    Okay, one more try here, N. You are in control of your mind. Not a washing machine.

    If you are not able to move back into your own personal experience, it is time to immediately find a psychiatrist and receive short-term or long-term help.

    However, once you are clear that tripping around like this is not anything REMOTELY like being a skilled empath, perhaps you will become motivated to do human things like exercise, talk to people about human (non-energy) topics, hold a paying job and pay attention to that objective-reality job while you’re doing it.

  14. 14

    Comment 12 is very hopeful.

    Hey, I have been in that floaty place of a very unskilled empath. I have come back and I love helping other people with extreme experiences like this come back.

    Now, it’s possible many of you readers ARE empaths and have no idea of the experiences N. has talked about. That’s fine. Most empaths do not get to the point of that degree of out of whack.

    It’s still important, IMHO, for ANY empath to become fully skilled. Subtle or huge, the difference in quality of life is well worth it.

  15. 15
    N. says:

    Thanks Rose.

    It is such a relief to come across your website and to speak to someone who knows this topic well.

    Oops, that got submitted before I finished. On my phone hehe. Where I choose to spend time with my 3.5 yo to go dancing, library play etc. my life today is the best it has been in a while. I thought I’d add on. Thank you Lena for your defense. It’s true I do work and do normal things too. And no-where do I say I don’t in writing. And I do want a better way to do this ie be skilled. I do have somewhat a normal life but abit abnormal. I find self discipline is very important. I have to exercise at least once a week I try to go to dancing because I love it & it’s grounding. When i’m busy it’s tricky & as single parent I have to find babysitters. Grounding, meditation, sleeping, all the really basic stuff and working are also an important part of my life, Otherwise im in really bad shape. Some days I’m really grounded and having a ball. Other days it’s work. Recently as in the last two months I considered researching what it is to be an empath, hence I’m here. Maintaining a normal living is Constant work and I’m kinda sick of the constant re-aligning, shifting, clearing, having to vispassana whenever I have a moment. Being still. Being away from family to find centre.
    I’m sure you are also doing the very best you can too.

    Re Washing Machine,

    I will expand on this a little. For years I walked around in a tangible ocean of something, in a viscosity.

  21. 21

    N., it is time that you stopped expanding on this experience, feeling nostalgia about this experience, romantizicing this experience, etc.

    It has served its purpose. For the sake of your quality of life, move on and continue on the path you have chosen of becoming a skilled empath.

    Please save more details about your experiments in lifestyle for off blog. I am so delighted to be teaching you.

    Imagine the confusion if every person I taught a system like “Empath Empowerment(R) thought it was necessary or desirable to go into all the details of all the things you did BEFORE studying this system. Have mercy!

    Michael Lloyd says:

    I am an Empath. There is an experience I call bonding, that I would like to better understand.

    One of my bonding experiences was with a female Empath cousin I am living with. Over the period of about a week I realized my connection with her was becoming significantly stronger and more intense. This connection is now felt whenever I am near her.

    My most profound bonding experience:
    Early February I was visited by 2 girls, an Empath friend and one of her friends. Though the Empath girl is a good friend, most of our interaction has been over the phone. We were setting on a sofa talking. After about 10 minutes the conversation shifted to the two girls talking. I was enjoying the interaction and the energy in the environment.

    After another 5 minutes I felt a powerful sensation. In the span of about 3 seconds it was as though the energy of all the cells in my body resonated with the Empath’s energy. In these 3 seconds I felt my entire body vibrating and the energy resonance increase from subtle to intense. [The resonance escalation felt like the vibration of a large bee getting increasingly close to your ear until it lands on you.] Again this sensation felt like it was in every cell of my body, like my energy was aligning with hers.

    We spent several hours together that day (road trip), and the resonance sensation continued. I asked the Empath if she felt anything, and she told me she sensed my connection with her, but not the bonding sensation.

    I have experienced bonding with other Empaths and a few non-Empaths.

    When I am near someone I have bonded with, I feel some or all of the following:

    Hands and arms feel like they are vibrating
    Electric sensations throughout my body, primary hands, feet, heart, throat, top of head, spine and shoulder blades
    Lots of energy flowing through me
    Feels like electric impulses surging throughout my nerves
    One of the more interesting sensations was feeling dozens of nerves randomly heating up like tiny electric sparks throughout my body. That was wild!

    The connection feels different with each person, with varying intensities. Regardless the energy I feel from this experience is intense and felt whenever I am near a person I have bonded with. Sometimes I channel the excessive energy for self healing. Also bonding seems to make me care more about them.

    Any ideas? Please tell me your thoughts.


  23. 23

    MICHAEL, welcome to the blog.

    There is another name for what you call “bonding”: Unskilled empath merge.

    Although it can add a lot of woo-woo dazzle, it isn’t particularly good for you. Your aura will get clogged up with STUFF as a result.

    For more details on this — plus how to avoid it — plus what you can do instead — see “Become the Most Important Person in the Room.”

  24. 24

    In the hands of someone as resourceful and smart as you evidently are, MICHAEL, you can keep yourself busy for years improvising techniques and channeling various energies.

    I’m glad you asked for an opinion from an expert in this field, because ingenuity and improv are best used on the surface of life, not making yourself a lab rat for interesting-sounding experiments in consciousness.

    A Strong Tiny Cup O' Tea says:

    Dear Rose,

    I have been reading ‘Empowered by Empathy’ for a few days now…just right before I got to bed. 🙂 I have been doing bit and pieces of the home work and I do love it! I, however, feel that the book is so rich, that I have to take a small bite at the time, like a rich delicious flourless chocolate cake…YUM!

    So far, I just finished with the Empath Test quiz. I was doing the “who am I?” exercise, right? After following all the steps described, I noticing my emotion were changing from anxious to calmness and peacefulness and very still.

    Then, I started to hear some messages from somewhere about myself. These were either things I am good at, areas in life that I need to be careful, also messages that were calming my fear about things. Is this odd? Is this considering ‘I noticed my thoughts”? or is this something else?? (Hopefully, these were a spirit guide telling me things, not some other spirits that were floating around)

    Is it possible that a person can be both Emotional Oneness Empath as well as Intellectual Empath all at the same time? and how does Clairaudient fits into all these? I hope my questions are not too silly, I”m a newbie, but I’m very eager to learn. 🙂

    In addition, I used to study psychology, and I had to change my career path, because I feel MALLED all the time emotionally on regular basis and felt that if I were to do it on regular basis as a career, I will be a wrecked by the time I turned 40. So I’m doing something else now I do love. Tills these days though, I still can feel their pain in my chest and it will consumed me for days, and I have tendency to draw to men that a brilliant intellectually, but messy emotionally. Weird huh?

    Thank you so much, Rose in advance for your help! 🙂

    Dear A Strong Tiny Cup O’ Tea:

    Your comment was so respectfully worded, which I appreciate.

    However, I am not available to comment on all the fascinating experiences that people can have from my books.

    I am not available to do this at my blog, nor through emails, nor through telephone calls.

    If you think about the implications for me, in terms of time and effort, multiplying your request many times over, you surely can understand.

  27. 27

    Since you’re eager to learn, which resources ARE available?

    My books are the first way to go, because they systematically teach skills. You will make the fastest progress if you pay attention to the purpose of an exercise, rather than whatever experiences you have outside the scope of the exercise.

    Telephone sessions with me are a great way to receive coaching or supplementary teaching.

    When I give workshops, that could be even better. For example, this month I will offer my Aura Reading Workshop, Level 1, April 21 and 22.

    Details are here:

    This aura reading workshop can help you go all the way to Stage Three Energetic Literacy… in one delightful weekend. I’m offering this workshop just once a year in Virginia (in Sterling, a suburb of Washington, D.C, convenient to the region’s largest airport).

    Appreciated attempts at distinctions, DAVID. 🙂

    Sorting through…

    My head is kind of scratching its head, while feeling as though I am traveling around a very salty pretzel.

    Some time I will go back here and sort through distinctions you are making here, adding my perspective.

    Not now though. Day off? Yes. But a long one.

    Thank you for challenging me, in the nicest possible way.

    David says:

    Just to get clear here – empath is experiencing as others experience, “what it’s like to be someone else.” Molecular is on a very fine level of that.

    “science fictioney travel” inside someones body is not experiencing as they experience but rather using subtle senses to experience as you experience, what you experience.

    ie: molecular empathy is not the same as molecular clairvoyance. It’s good to distinguish these. There is that tendency to lump subtle stuff together even though there’s a huge range of very distinct things.

  30. 30

    Blog-Buddies, these trackbacks from DAVID are to superb articles.

    I do plan to add thanks more formally. Meanwhile, these trackbacks can take you to some of the best articles anyone — ever — anywhere — has written about different facets of Rosetree Energy Spirituality.

    Big appreciation for you, DAVID.

    David.. says:

    Thanks, Rose. Glad I can offer something in return. It’s been wonderful to fill in some gaps I had in understanding. But even more, to get decent techniques for developing what was already here but only half-recognized.

    Zelda says:

    A while ago at the blog, I asked if you’d check industrial designer Yves Behar for the Enlightenment List. At the time, he wasn’t ready for the list, but you mentioned that he’s a molecular empath.

    Since then, I’ve learned that I’m going to be working on a project with his company and I’ve been doing research in preparation for a needs assessment meeting with some of his employees.

    I don’t know that I’ll get a chance to meet him or somehow be in his presence. I’ve watched video interviews with him.

  33. 33
    Zelda says:

    Given the amazing experience I’ve been having doing this research, I’ve become more curious about molecular empaths and this particular experience with this one.

    Of course, from the research you and I did recently, I know that this project has loads of Soul Thrill for me.

    Am I correct in assuming that the impact of a molecular empath is basically only felt in person or through the phone or video?

  34. 34
    Zelda says:

    Given that he is a designer of amazing products, I’m wondering if that molecular empath effect can occur for people who encounter his designs.

    Or is that way too big a stretch?

  35. 35
    Zelda says:

    I have been experiencing quite an awakening and shifting of my feelings about and perceptions of my own artistic and design talents as I’ve been exploring his work.

    I imagine that some of that is due to the molecular empath effect.

  36. 36

    Let’s start responses to this latest batch of questions with your Comment 35, ZELDA.

    Is the energetic impact of a molecular empath is basically only felt in person or through the phone or video?

    Nearly correct. The energetic impact is present also in photos, on videos, in sound recordings.

    The same process occurs with any other empath. Or any other human being.

    One of the cool things about Earth School is that, at a subconscious level, we are constantly being affected by energies of other people.

    Note: To you metaphysically-minded readers, it’s important to know that the astral level in metaphysics is equivalent psychologically to the subconscious mind.

  37. 37

    Some of you Blog-Buddies know there is an important word — and concept — for that.

    Auric modeling is that impact each of us has on others. And it is a tremendously powerful way we influence others.

    You can read more about auric modeling here:

  38. 38

    And if you are concerned about living your sacred life purpose, auric modeling is part of the way you do that.

    Empath or not. Whatever type of empath or not.

    You can read more about that here:

  39. 39

    Now for responding to ZELDA’s Comment #36:

    “Given that [Yves Behar] is a designer of amazing products, I’m wondering if that molecular empath effect can occur for people who encounter his designs.”

    I just love this question because, to me, the answer involves playing with the fascinating intersection between astral energies and human frequencies.

  40. 40

    Life on earth has always included more astral (or psychic-level) interactions than human ones.

    By way of analogy, think tree roots — so much larger beneath the surface than that trunk and branches visible to ordinary sight.

  41. 41

    Since The Shift into this new Age of Energy — nearly two full years ago — the astral presence on earth has intensified for two reasons.

    Many more astral beings are hanging out here, such as deserts being as crowded with E.T. entities as cities like New York are crowded with humans.

    And perception for people can easily shift now into paying attention to psychic frequencies, astral energies.

  42. 42

    Living now, it is extremely important to develop skills and knowledge. This supplements self-authority, or how we know something and seek to find the right words to wrap around the experience.

    If we don’t have clear knowledge, we can start on a faulty premise and cascade from there into lines of thinking that aren’t productive.

    Which is why I am so delighted that ZELDA has shared her reasoning here.

  43. 43

    Is Yves Behar a molecular empath? Yes. (According to my exploration of his energy field using Stage Three Energetic Literacy.)

    Do molecular empaths, and all empaths, influence others through their auric modeling?

    Yes again.

  44. 44

    Does auric modeling happen through physical objects designed by a person?

    Or would auric modeling be caught through a painting that showed Yves Behar?

    Or would auric modeling come through this blog, written by a molecular empath (this teacher Rose Rosetree)?

    No, no, no.

  45. 45

    Designing eyeglasses. Manufacturing them. Distributing them.

    Painting a man. Looking at the painting of a man. Enjoying a painting of a particular man.

    Reading this blog.

    Can this change you, even help you to evolve spiritually?

  46. 46

    I sure hope so.

    And all the activities mentioned in that last comment are at the human level.

    They are not energies.

    Eyeglasses are not energies.

    A painting is not energies.

    Make sense?

  47. 47

    Now you’ll meet people who are all about the energy. Not ZELDA. 🙂

    But plenty of other people.

    JOE, for instance, might say, “It’s all about the energy. I notice energies all day long. Different glasses change my energies. That’s why I choose one pair of frames rather than another.

    “If I like Yves Behar and his designs, that changes my energies.”

  48. 48

    Not true.

    Not true unless you are doing aura reading or otherwise using skills of Energetic Literacy.

    Actually there is a particular form of aura reading research, Thrill Your Soul research it’s called, that goes into minute detail about the energetic impact of any choice, like one pair of eyeglass frames rather than another.

    But this is done while aura reading. Technique Time, right?

    Noticing energies is not done while in the midst of everyday human life. At least if you wish to avoid Spiritual Addiction.

  49. 49

    So the effect of objects designed by Yves Behar is not directly about his consciousness, his energy field, or particular specialties about his aura such as his being a molecular empath.

    What he says and does produces consequences. Same as for you and me.

    It’s human life, folks.

    Saying and doing things in objective reality, we produce consequences for ourselves and evolve. And we also produce consequences for other people.

    Not energies, human-type experiences here at Earth School!

  50. 50

    And what about that “molecular empath effect” ZELDA asked about?

    Offhand I don’t know if she coined that term or I did. If you coined it, witty ZELDA, thank you!

    It’s a useful term, for sure, THE MOLECULAR EMPATH EFFECT.

  51. 51

    Every molecular empath does something through auric modeling. The consciousness of other people is enlivened, awakened a bit, energetically.

    One molecular empath I know described it as jump-starting another person’s spiritual growth.

    Something similar is said about being in the presence of someone who lives in Enlightenment.

    But the qualities of jump-starting are different.

  52. 52

    The mysterious energies of auric modeling are… energies.

    The Molecular Empath Effect is about… energies.

    This does not convey through Yves Behar’s designs or anyone else’s designs.

    Good design or powerful art can change lives, of course. It is done humanly.

  53. 53

    Over at ZELDA’s Comment 37:

    “I have been experiencing quite an awakening and shifting of my feelings about and perceptions of my own artistic and design talents as I’ve been exploring his work.”

    For that, ZELDA, you can thank your human choices.

    You take the time to appreciate Yves Behar’s work.

    That changes you.

  54. 54

    One lesson to draw from this, Blog-Buddies, is that today you might renew your commentment to say things and do things. Don’t just observe or process emotions or be fascinated by your own energies. Or join millions of people now living in Spiritual Addiction, and some of it an extreme form of Spiritual Addiction.

    Create art, for instance.

    You will create that art from your level of consciousness. You’re not just hanging out at a Starbucks, talking about yourself as an aspiring artist who aims to change the world.

    You’re not just there, drinking your latte and radiating your auric modeling.

    To create art takes time, takes persistence, takes courage. And that’s when the human results can happen.

    Gotta love Earth School, right?

  55. 55
    Isabella says:

    Ooh, what an awesome series of comments.

    I’m wondering about the different qualities of jump-start caused by an Enlightened person vs a molecular empath. I’d have to do a little research to wrap some words around that.

    I have noticed having this effect on others sometimes. It’s fun to have going on in the background, and is deeply gratifying to be able to share the effortlessness of God… effortlessly.

  56. 56

    ISABELLA, as you research keep in mind that there is not necessarily a generalization that applies universally.

    Rather, an individual responds. To the extent that the individual’s soul is ready to respond.

  57. 57

    Personally I don’t make it my business to notice either.

    For some months after crossing the threshold into Enlightenment, it was interesting to see how some people would look me in the eye, then seem a bit more awake, etc.

    After a while I got used to it.

  58. 58

    It’s healthier all around, isn’t it, not to spend a lot of time trying to learn how we impact or impress other people.

    Just say and do, as any other mortal does in this world. Set human goals. Help people. Keep evolving in your own way.

    Surely this will serve you better long term than attempting to assess your degree of darshan. 😉

  59. 59
    Isabella says:

    I really don’t. Promise. Can I really help having tiny flashes of noticing something like that, every once in a while?

    Why would I spend any energy on assessing my darshan? lol. Well, if I was, that would probably be a pretty good sign my life had stalled.

    It’s not like I can act and dress horribly and my darshan saves the day.

  60. 60

    ISABELLA, I know you pretty darned well and so I know you don’t spend your life assessing how others assess you.

    That’s why I dared write such a thing.

    Plus some of you Blog-Buddies may currently have the habit of doing that assessing thing and maybe this exchange has given you a giggle or two.

    Me? I’m laughing now at the idea of Superhero ISABELLA, where the wrong in the world involves not just acting horribly but dressing horribly. While your darshan saves the day.

    Anita says:

    Hi Rose,

    These are a lovely series of comments! I’m reminded of an expression from the amazing Judy Lavine (also on your Enlightenment Life List): “It’s important to walk your talk, not just talk your talk.”

    Of course, she is referring to the human-level effort of being in the world, living in the world, doing good in the world.

    She’s referring to the Eastern idea of “chop wood, carry water.”

    I’m not an artist or designer for a living, however, one way that I “create art” in my daily life is by cooking a meal, from scratch.

    This is a new skill for me and has resulted in some, umm, interesting creations. That being said, when it has gone well, it has resulted in simple nutritious food that I have been able to share with friends in my life who are currently too busy to cook for themselves.

    For me, it has resulted in such a swell of human-level pride and accomplishment!

  62. 62
    Anita says:

    Hi Rose,

    I would imagine that Yves Behar being a molecular empath affects his designs – in the sense that he may be perceptive in a way that other designers who aren’t molecular empaths are and can therefore translate what he is perceiving from others into his designs to better serve their needs and desires.

  63. 63
    Anita says:

    That translation, of course, takes human level skills and effort – the time it takes to sketch, plan, build a prototype, test run the prototype, tweak the design, meet with customers and colleagues, etc.

  64. 64
    Anita says:

    I deeply appreciate the designs of Yves Behar on a human level. However, I’m not aurically impacted by Behar directly or through his designs.

    Being a molecular empath myself, I can feel the thoughtfulness, the intuitiveness, that go into his designs.

  65. 65
    Anita says:

    When I hold something he has designed, it feels like a natural extension of myself and my needs, rather than like a “tool” that is “separate” from myself.

  66. 66
    Anita says:

    When I hold something he has designed, it feels like a natural extension of myself and my needs, rather than like a “tool” that is “separate” from myself.

    It’s a lovely feeling, to have the feeling, “Oh, this designer designed this just for me,” even though he didn’t!

  67. 67
    Anita says:

    It’s just Behar coordinating his ability as a molecular empath with his intellect and human-level skills as a product designer and inventor.

  68. 68

    ANITA, in general it is lovely to hear from you at the blog, and it’s inspiring to read this set of comments in particular.

    By way of introduction to some of the Blog-Buddies who don’t know you yet, ANITA is a molecular empath and she also happens to be on our Enlightenment Life List.

  69. 69
    Zelda says:

    Thanks, Rose, for these thorough and fascinating comments. And, Anita, you brought up some points right along the lines of what I was thinking after I read Rose’s comments.

    It seems that his super-evolved consciousness, in addition to his molecular empath skills (assuming we can make a distinction here (?) ) is key here, too.

  70. 70
    Zelda says:

    I’ve been thinking about the connection between consciousness and design, as I’ve had such fascinating opportunities lately to consider this.

    Consciousness is reflected in a million different design decisions. Things as simple as including quiet spaces to work in the building design — or not. Is the comfort of the humans inhabiting the spaces a consideration?

  71. 71
    Zelda says:

    So when I started researching Yves Behar’s designs, I was downright moved by the notion that creating a delightful customer experience is important to him.

    As Anita described, it is palpable in his products.

    It’s that level of thoughtfulness that can then be attended to with that ultra-perception molecular empath talent, along with the human skills, that makes the designs so powerful.

  72. 72

    How I am enjoying this thread, ZELDA and everyone!

    About your Comment #71, I can’t resist making a couple of technical points.

    #1. Being born as a molecular empath does not mean the same thing as having skills. All skills for empaths are learned. Could be my system for Empath Empowerment(R). Could be the Yves Behar Personal Cognition Empath Skills.

    Blog-Buddies, be aware that no empath gift comes automatically with skills.

  73. 73

    #2. About this part in your Comment, ZELDA:

    “his super-evolved consciousness, in addition to his molecular empath skills (assuming we can make a distinction here (?) )”

    You bet we can make a distinction. Being born as a molecular empath does not mean that a person is more evolved than others.

    There are people scampering around on earth right now who are mega-super-big-fancy evolved. And not a single empath gift to them.

  74. 74

    Empath is about empath. Each empath gift — every one of the 15 different empath gifts described in detail in “The Empowered Empath” — is just an empath gift.

    Magnificent. Important. Requiring skills to work well.

    And no more magnificent or important than other gifts that human beings can have, like being a good kisser. 😉

  75. 75
    Isabelle says:

    Is it ‘easier’ for molecular empaths to talk with people ‘on the phone’? To me it feels much less stressful to communicate that way. When I see people I take in so so much… Writing this as a still unskilled empath, working on becoming a skilled one.

  76. 76

    ISABELLE, talking on the phone has zero relevance to being a molecular empath.

    Look at anything I have ever written online or in books and I doubt you will find a single comment about telephones, smartphones, mobile phones, etc. and being ANY kind of empath.

  77. 77

    Thank you so much for bringing up this topic, just so I could respond. And also so that I could share this — relevant to you and every single person reading this blog comment now:

    If you have a problem, like choking up when you speak on the phone, it is irresponsible to generalize about why you have the problem.

    Generalizing and theories will not solve that problem either — at least if it is STUFF-related.

  78. 78

    My recommendation: Have a session of Aura Healing with a practitioner or apprentice who has been trained in Rosetree Energy Spirituality.

    Then you can have removal of emotional and astral STUFF related to your problem, plus PUT-IN that helps to make your results permanent and cumulative.

    I would love to help you, ISABELLE, as would our new graduates JESSICA and MICHELLE, and all the others you can read about here:

    Very appropriate that I have booked a session with you tomorrow then;-) hope to get more clarity! 🙂

    Tony says:

    Hi Rose,

    I am following your information, and learning what I can about Empaths because of trying to understand myself for the first time. I struggle with Depression and have went to therapy, and sought a way to help myself multiple times over the years. I am 30 now and I have realized that I may have been unskilled merging over the years and in some cases to a scary degree. While living my life I have always bonded with people, and helped others just by befriended and caring about them. In fact I have an entire group of like sixty people online who are part of my “Talah” gathering. Basically just people who enjoy some aspects of fantasy gaming while also having found a interest/support in me. I dont know if I will ever stop caring for people, even when I can manage it or understand it but I do try to make sure their emotions, struggles and such do not bleed off on me. While not understanding my gift fully I have lived my life trying to help and accept myself. Some days I would get tired, and feel lazy/unmotivated even in pain. This caused holding a job, a social life and such near impossible. However I have got better and grew up in a way through so many storms of depression and real physical struggles of life. Even after reading so much of your work I am still not fully sure of many things. Just that I am able to feel so much, and care so much that I can do a lot of good I think. I have never really tried to use my gift, nor may I ever as I really just want to live my life with those I love being happy and safe. However a recent situation in which a family member almost took their life has caused me to wonder if I need to do more for her. I know how much she means to me, and that she feels so little for herself. I think she is a empath too but has no clue about it. I know I see her even if she doesnt see herself….I know I dont see myself sometimes. However I think I can help her appreciate herself and know that she isnt alone. That things will get better, and that she is valued that her impact on the world does matter more than she could ever dream. I know you may not read this, as the blogs last entry was 2 years ago. I also know I am not someone who bought your stuff, but I feel like you do try to help people. I am working on a way to motivate her, to show her what she hasnt been able to see before. I want to rekindle a flame I know she has so that she trys to find a hobby, or passion as she has had in the past. Then I think so much will change for her, and she will regain her lost strength. Thank you for your time! Reading this means a lot, no matter who does <3

  85. 85

    Look, TONY, you seem like a really good guy. So I’ve published your long, long chunk of personal information. Here I’ll make some commonsense comments.

    Please, before your pour out your heart on a blog? Take a little time to read the comments. Will you see anything resembling what you wrote? Not here, sir. Commenting the way you did isn’t just desperate but inappropriate, and even a little rude.

  86. 86

    Is the absence of comments like yours… because nobody else has problems and feelings? Or is it because this is a teaching blog, where people learn and explore what you’ll find by clicking in the ABOUT menu near the top of the home page. Or you could just start here.

    When you open up and spend a long time pouring out your heartfelt experiences, how good is it for you to just send it where it doesn’t belong? Does it really help you? And does it help you to receive no free advice from my blog, or praise? Please think before you do this kind of thing again.

  87. 87

    Sure, if you want help as an empath, study with me. Like starting with Book 1 in my series of books for empaths. This could be all you need to become a skilled empath.

    Even better, book a personal session of RES Energy HEALING so that I can help you to start to sort out this mess that’s roiling you. As in, help you, actually help!

  88. 88

    Unless you get yourself real help, whether from me or others with effective skills, you could spend the rest of your life sharing and documenting and wailing on social media. Stuck as could be.

    Think, man. Why did you write “Reading this means a lot, no matter who does”? That helps nothing. Snap yourself out of this sentimentality.

  89. 89

    Just because you believe that “empath” will magically help a complicated family situation, or your personal problems, that doesn’t make it true.

    Perhaps what you need most is help from a mental health professional. If so, go for that. I’ve taken time to respond because I don’t want to be complicit, however indirectly, in your myth that me simply reading your words will fix your life. I don’t want that job. I don’t do that job. Please, stop thinking that anybody has that job.
