Empath Skills Hasten Enlightenment. In this guest post, RES Apprentice SANDRA HAERING describes how Empath Empowerment® made a big difference. While aiming To live a life of love in thought, word, and deed.
Im a member of that growing group of people in Householder Enlightenment. It was never my objective to become Enlightened. I did have a goal for decades, however, which was: To live a life of love in thought, word, and deed.
How self-denying; how holy! At least that was how I interpreted that goal. In retrospect, I was probably aiming for a type of Enlightenment more typical of religious devotees secreted away in convents, monasteries or caves.
The problem was that I didnt live in a cave, but amongst many family, friends and strangers. I was also an unskilled empath.
A Dangerous Combination
That is a dangerous combination, a person who:
- Personally feels everyones physical and emotional pain, and
- Believes she needs to love and help them.
I was not successful at living my goal, particularly with the loving thoughts. I was also intensely miserable. This drove me to look for help.
Nothing worked until I found Rose and her blog. I immediately purchased Become the Most Important Person in the Room.
What, put myself first?
Me, become THE most important person in the room? The title brought tears to my eyes. It was antithetical to my long-held belief that everyone else comes first.
I realized that when I walked into a room, everyone else became more important. What I thought and felt? It faded.
Even when my own special self would rise up and start expressing herself, I would stop as soon as someone became disinterested or had a special need to be heard.
I gleefully practiced all of the techniques in the book to circumvent all of the unskilled empath merges I was constantly doing.
It was a tremendous relief to enter a room containing suffering people… and come out unscathed!
What really sealed the deal for me came after I began doing Roses Coming Home technique. (This is taught in Rose’s Quick & Easy book for basics of Empath Empowerment® and also in the expanded edition — easily twice as long and crammed with inside information.)
Gaining a stronger sense of self
In the “Coming Home” technique you gently explore all aspects of yourself: physical, emotional, etc.
As I practiced this daily, I became more in tune with what I thought and felt. It was such a loving thing to do for myself.
Eventually I actually became the most important person in the room, to myself. A little bit later I moved into Enlightenment.
Lots of other things factored into crossing that threshold, but it would not have happened unless I became a skilled empath first.
What is so ironic is that now I probably live more of a life of love than I ever have. My cup of love for myself is so full, that it overflows to everyone around me.
And I dont need to feel their pain to love them!
