Today’s blog post is dedicated to RACHEL SEARLE, who recently shared here at the blog for the first time, and in a brave way, at an article about empath skills. Yet her comments were very concerning to me, both as an Empath Coach and as someone who helps people with the other skills of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES).
Living now, we can evolve so fast spiritually. It’s a great opportunity, provided you understand that you are HUMAN. Invest in that human life, complete with common sense, and astral energies will support you as never before in human history.
But if you become overly involved in paying attention to energies, you will (not may, you WILL) lose your balance. Most likely you will develop a spiritual addiction, a kind of addiction to the allure of the astral.
This can be avoided. Or if too late for that, healed.
How to Avoid or Heal Spiritual Addiction
If you have become overly involved in the astral, that doesn’t mean you’re alone. Nor that you would know there’s a problem from talking to your friends. Sadly, they may have the same problem as you, or even have a more severe version, extreme spiritual addiction.
It takes skills of energetic literacy to determine whether or not there is a problem, because full-strength aura reading reveals what is going on at the astral level within a person’s aura — a level that corresponds to your subconscious mind.
Millions of people are suffering from the same kind of problem, energy addiction (a.k.a. Spiritual Addiction). Be bold enough to wake up now and turn this around for yourself. You can become a leader in your social group! Dare to live as a Post-New-Ager.
First, might I recommend that you gain historical perspective from this recent article: What is the Age of Awakening?
Second, you can bolster this Post-New-Age perspective with specifics. Learn how to avoid an energy-based lifestyle with this series of blog posts, 10 in all: Heal Spiritual Addiction, Top 10 Articles about Technique Time.
Today, of course, I’m writing with a slightly different emphasis, related to being an empath.
What Is an Empath?
An empath was born with one significant gift for directly experiencing what it is like to be another person. So empaths are born, not made. And there are many of us — 1 in 20 people.
As an Empath Coach, I have had a great deal of experience in this field. I have seen it grow tremendously since I published the first book for empaths, now out of print and replaced by a series of four how-to books on the system of Empath Empowerment®.
Like anyone living now, empath or not, it is very easy for anyone to become overly involved with energy. This over-involvement is a consciousness lifestyle, a choice.
Being an empath is NOT a choice. It’s a great blessing, provided that we get reliable skills. Otherwise we will suffer.
And what is the great big, nasty mess going on now for many empaths?
Empaths have become a big market. Empath authorities abound. Even when they are like the blind leading the blind. Leading to…
A New Problem for Empaths. Living in the Age of Awakening
Today, energy is EVERYONE’s shiny new toy. If you think that you have just discovered it because you’re special, please! You are special. But everyone living now can notice energies very easily.
It’s about as unusual as living during the Industrial Revolution and thinking, “I’m so special, because I know about Eli Whitney’s Cotton Gin.” 😉
So noticing energy is the happening thing. What happens when people also just happen to find out they are empaths?
Remember, these smart self-actualizing empaths are living when?
On comes advice with the blind empaths leading the blind.
So the majority of advice for empaths that you will find on the Internet is probably coming from people in spiritual addiction who are not skilled empaths — at least not how this Empath Coach would define it. You’ll be encouraged to make a mish-mash of energy everything and call that “Being an empath.”
Empaths, Don’t Settle for That
You’re invited to the free resource, the Empath Empowerment® SKILLS Group on Facebook. This supports people who are reading at least one of my books for empath skills. Not a substitute for that systematic instruction, but a wonderful support.
Although the group is just a few months old, we have already had many conversations and comments in the direction of clarifying the difference between being an empath and drifting along aimlessly in energies.
What is another resource for clarifying the difference between being an empath versus over-emphasizing energy in everyday live? (Even glorifying spiritual addiction as a path for empaths!!!!)
Our next post in this series.
Meanwhile, please share your comments here. And don’t worry.
- If in spiritual addiction, you can overcome it.
- If an unskilled empath, you can get skills. Many thousands have mastered Empath Empowerment®, why not you, too?
- In RES, overcoming spiritual addiction and gaining skills as an empath — they fit together like hand in glove.
