For your eyes only, empaths.
Today’s post, Part Three of this series, might make non-empaths jealous.
Hey, that’s only fair. So much of the online conversation about empaths screams “Victim!”
And it’s true that being an unskilled empath is no fun. Unless one likes pain… such as physical pain from taking on STUFF with Physical Oneness, or spiritual anxiety due to taking on STUFF as a Spiritual Empath, or the ever-popular “What did I think anyway?” confusion of an Intellectual Empath.
The list of torments goes on and on, inter-psychic and inter-personal and, especially, Internet. Yesterday’s post stunned ME, when I found the statistic of 1/2 million hits on the pathetic concept of “Empath + victim.”
Those words never have to be juxtaposed for you, Blog-Buddies! And maybe you even know a different empath pair ‘o terms with a way lower recognition factor right now, “Molecular + empath.” Currently this has just 19 thousand hits on Google… but “molecular empath” refers to something that really exists.
In fact, today’s blog post is being written by a molecular empath. And I’m pretty sure that I exist.
Whereas “Rose Rosetree as empath victim” ended back in 1997.
No repining about some of the weirdly popular victim terminology. Let’s allow the not-yet-skilled empaths to feel good about themselves, whatever it takes to make even a marginal improvement. 😉
Truth is, unskilled empaths are less effective than non-empaths. But skilled empaths are more effective than non-empaths.
Personally, I’m convinced that the overall point of being born as an empath is to become a skilled empath.
Empath gifts can only be given turned ON
Does that fact of life have to mean “victim”? Nope. To me it means “part of Earth School.”
If God could give someone even one empath gift, installing it turned OFF until that empath decided to turn it ON….
Surely that would be how it was done for you and me and all the other empaths on earth.
Only nope. That is not how any of us millions of empaths have come into human life.
Fact of life: Empath gifts being given turned OFF just isn’t possible. Being born all the way at one delightful end of the Continuum of Human Sensitivity, each empath gift is switched ON until the soul learns how to turn it OFF on purpose. Same as being born as a Highly Sensitive Person. It’s there from babyhood on.
HSP self-management matters for quality of life. Empath gifts, being at the extreme end of the Continuum of Human Sensitivity, require proper stewardship even more.
Your challenge and mine: The empath gift(s) that make you an empath will not serve you well… unless you do your part as an evolving human.
So rejoice when you find a system for empath skills that works for you. Follow through and do that wee bit of work to gain Empath Empowerment(R) until you own the skills for life.
Obviously, pursue whatever that system is called that you might prefer to the one I teach. Many new techniques for empaths are coming up all the time, and you get to decide for yourself what appeals and what doesn’t.
Today’s article about extra-credit points from being an empath applies only to skilled empaths, folks who have a dependable way to keep from taking on STUFF at a subconscious level. Read the aura of a skilled empath, down to the level of chakra databanks, and you won’t find unskilled empath merges, or their after-effects of STUFF.
I would like to make the technical point that any system for empaths that doesn’t manage this will not produce what I call a “Skilled Empath” by this definition, although obviously there could be other appeals and benefits. Okay, on to the pointies!
What’s the point of living with your empath gift(s) turned OFF?
Skilled Empath Point 1. Sense of identity
Skilled Empaths have a strong sense of identity. This sense of self doesn’t just randomly happen to people. It results from a cumulative process of waking up from inside.
Techniques of Empath Empowerment are designed to turn empath gift(s) OFF by turning sense of identity ON and UP.
This authentic, buildable sense of identity is not based on identifying with one small portion of life gifts, such as being smart or looking cute or being in a love relationship or having a child, or other specialized aspects of life that can form a workaround sense of identity.
Workaround, that is, until some life event changes the social role that has formed the provisional sense of self. By contrast, an authentically strong sense of self makes a person more stable. It includes every gift that God has given you for this lifetime, including social roles, physical body, mind, intellect, emotions, soul, spiritual connection.
All of this, when owned by consciousness in a natural and effortless manner, can become one’s human sense of self. This is a huge, holistic, personal sense of identity.
For sense of identity to work well enough to provide Empath Empowerment, the experience of self will be clear enough to show all the way through to chakra databanks. Consciousness wakes up for a skilled empath.
Although this isn’t the same thing as being spiritually Enlightened, Empath Empowerment can help on one’s personal path to Enlightenment.
Here I think of folks from our community at Deeper Perception Made Practical who, this year, made it onto the Enlightenment Life List, including JULIE, JILL ERIN, PANTELIS, and STEPHANIE, Skilled Empaths all.
Not a coincidence, perhaps: I coached folks about Empath Empowerment long before, just this year, I humbly added the notion that I might also serve others as an Enlightenment Coach.
Skilled Empath Point 2: Quality of Human Relationships with Empath Gifts Turned OFF
There you are, a Skilled Empath, hanging out with your friends. Spending time with family members. Talking to neighbors.
Because of your training to become a Skilled Empath, you have developed a relatively sophisticated relationship to both objective reality and subjective reality.
You have the wisdom to know the difference. This brings on a kind of serenity.
Moreover, your depths of sensitivity are not used for casual chit-chat. You own most of the Continuum of Human Sensitivity in your behavioral repertoire. Spontaneously you can match other people’s position along that Continuum, match them gesture for gesture and joke for joke.
This is not conscious behavior, necessarily. Because nothing about becoming a skilled empath requires self-consciousness behavioral “working on the self.” Instead, the spontaneous positioning of consciousness itself shifts. And with that come a whole cascade of upgrades to mind-body-spirit.
Blog-Buddies, your consciousness is naturally fluid. As a Skilled Empath, you have automatic, spontaneously appropriate behavior with folks regardless of their sensitivity level, enjoying the playground of social relationships. (And, as a side effect, skilled empaths can earn the maxium possible respect from others.)
Skilled Empath Point 3: Sense of purpose while earning a living
Every human being has the majority of chakra databanks — and majority of time spent on earth — related to living a human life.
Service as a world server involves a separate bunch of chakra databanks.
How you earn your living does not have to involve being a world server. Money and human responsibility come with evolving as a human.
Much of today’s most troubling conversation within New Age puts “Grand purpose” into the role of fulfilling all these functions simultaneously. I question that.
In my experience, purpose does not have to be grand. It’s a fine purpose to be honorable as a human householder, to earn a living that is stable and helps human beings in everyday ways. You could be a librarian or can vegetables for the winter. You might get together with other guys every weekend and fix old-model cars. How very householdery and human… and magnificent!
As a Skilled Empath, with gifts turned off, you model extreme sensitivity as a fully functioning, powerful human being. That auric modeling provides an inspiration to everyone along the Continuum of Human Sensitivity. This means powerful service to humanity. Even could be considered a “spiritual purpose,” yet done in an un-self-conscious, very real way.
The meek can inherit the earth, and so can the sensitive.
Skilled Empath Point 4: Skilled Empath Merge teaches you every time
Just a minute or less, when you do a well designed technique for Skilled Empath Merge, whoosh! There goes your consciousness, learning in the deepest way possible about human Otherness. In Part One of this recent blog series, I described the big-picture, World Server-type benefit for humanity.
Here, the human point is simple. Whatever you might consider “The last frontier,” be it settling in a new colony, exploring space, learning about your chosen profession, finding out how many orgasms you can squeeze into each day….
When it comes to experiences of consciousness, Skilled Empath Merge is one of the ultimate frontiers. Though quiet, and lacking in psychic flash — that flash being what can be so addictive about The Romance of the Astral –whatever happens during a Skilled Empath Merge is a powerful and distinctively human exploration of consciousness.
“Wait!” some of you Blog-Buddies may be thinking. “I care so much more about gaining spiritual Enlightenment/Self-Realization/God-Realization/Self-Actualization.” Isn’t that “The last frontier.”
Sure. I’d agree. But who has to choose?
It does seem to me that becoming a Skilled Empath, including doing Skilled Empath Merge as appropriate for a healthy balanced lifestyle, is a powerful way to move extra quickly on your path to Enlightenment.
Certainly it is clear that one need not be anywhere close to Enlightenment in order to learn Empath Empowerment skills or to do Skilled Empath Merge. That, to me, is pretty exciting, too.
Stage Three Energetic Literacy, so you can read auras all the way down to the level of chakra databanks — that’s my basis for saying that Skilled Empath Merges are healthy. Very healthy. Extremely evolutionary for someone who seeks spiritual Enlightenment.
Skilled Empath Point 5: Extra-amazing relationship with God
Of course, everyone can have an amazing relationship with God. Each of us does already.
Playing The God Game, each of us gets to have just the type of relationship with God that we desire. Long-term this relationship develops more and more.
Of course, every non-empath can have an extra-amazing relationship with God.
But this is an article about empaths, for empaths. So, between you and me, think about this.
When you have skills as an empath:
- You can interact in any relationship with your empath gift(s) OFF and have a gorgeously authentic human experience.
- You can choose to do a brief Skilled Empath Merge, with anyone you choose, in person or via photograph. Turning your empath gift(s) ON, you will have a transcendent, inspiring, making contact with the Otherness of the other person.
Well, think that might come in useful for your relationship with God?
