Blind Empath Coaching. In some empath coaching, are the blind leading the blind?
Today’s guest post provides a shocking perspective. As Blog-Buddy CHRISTINE continues to share her experiences as an empath. Go, CHRISTINE!
Blind Empath Coaching. The Misinformation
Thank you Rose and everyone who commented at my last guest post!
It is extremely frustrating when you awaken and try to learn everything about who you are and you find so much misinformation, so many contradictions.
Regarding empaths, I have read everything online in the past two years and it just drove me crazy, until it made me wish I wasnt one.
I notice that all the newbie Empaths who are creating groups and pages have different views on what an Empath is and, sadly, some have a huge following.
I was following a page on Facebook and really loved the page until the host posted something a few days ago to the effect that, supposedly, everyone is born an Empath.
I posted and disagreed with her. Then she tried to put me down and make me look stupid.
We exchanged a few comments regarding the matter. Then this morning I noticed she deleted my comments and banned me from her page.
I was shocked! I guess she wants to feed everyone her own beliefs and if you disagree she will remove you. Just unreal!
Blind Empath Coaching. The Bogus Idea about “Choice”
Is being an empath a matter of choice?
On Facebook I’ve read that all people are born empaths and some just shut their ability down due to trauma.
OMG, was she serious? I grew up with many traumas in my childhood and my abilities have always been with me.
In the past, I thought my experiences as an empath were normal and that all other people were just the same way.
By now I know, if you were born an empath, you never lose your abilities. You just dont necessarily know that you are an empath.
If that turn-it-off-forever idea were true, hell! I would have turned my empath gifts off forever.
Blind Empath Coaching? You Can Do Better.
Which types of information can really help an empath? As a smart consumer, look for this.
- Clear definitions about different types of empath talent?
- Clarification that empaths are born, not made.
- Understanding that, as Christine wrote, everyone is not an empath.
- And you can’t make yourself an empath.
- Either you have empath gifts for life or you don’t.
- Does the empath coach teach you techniques for cleaning up Imported STUFF from unskilled empath merge.
- Help for using skills that involve consciousness? (Because being an empath is all about something that happens in consciousness.)
- Effective techniques for turning empath gifts OFF as a matter of routine.
- Knowledge of the differences between unskilled empath merge and Skilled Empath Merge.
- Even one well designed, safe technique for doing a Skilled Empath Merge.
Blind Empath Coaching really happens a lot, it would seem. Sure would help if all those empath coaches would learn energetic literacy! Then they could tell if their approaches made a difference. Or not.
Smart New Age Consumers, pay attention to this list of (to me) indispensable requirements for coaching empaths. Coping tips for empaths are, IMO, a complete waste of time. As are techniques to cleanse or “clear” auras through crystals or bathing, etc. This doesn’t remove Imported STUFF but creates busywork.
Please invite folks you meet, online or in person, to bring standards to conversations about empaths. It really isn’t enough to name empath gifts properly. That is just the first step toward Empath Empowerment.
Besides CHRISTINE’s guest post today is inspiring Comment #15 by DAVID at her previous blog post about being an empath. And, yes, I would recommend the article at his blog about becoming a skilled empath.
Resources for Empath Empowerment
Best first book for empaths, at least by me… is Become The Most Important Person in the Room: Your 30-Day Plan for Empath Empowerment
A more sophisticated follow-up, so far available in the U.S. only, and as an ebook, is The Empowered Empath: Owning, Embracing and Managing Your Special Gifts. (I’ll let you know when the paperback is published and also when ebooks are available internationally. Doing my best!)
An even more advanced book, so far available in the U.S. only, and as an ebook, has the mouthful title: The Master Empath: Turning on Your Empath Gifts at Will — in Love, Business and Friendship (Includes Training in Skilled Empath Merge)
Ditto about letting you know when this how-to for empaths is available in other formats.
About that photo at the top of today’s article, that shows me on the day the first paperbacks arrived at my home for Become The Most Important Person in the Room — my second book for helping empaths. The first book I published for empaths, Empowered by Empathy, seems a lifetime ago. As many of you readers know, this was the very first book in English for empaths. Period.
