So many of us empaths are in a hurry to get skills.
- Some folks feel desperate.
- Some expect instant answers.
- Some believe that the truth ought to be simple. And, therefore, we have the right to take something too new or complex and turn it into something “better.”
I’m here to caution you. Please take your empath skills more seriously than that. Show more respect for yourself.
Because empaths are especially vulnerable to mixing up self-authority with skills, then doing little experiments that, frankly, do not work. (Some of you remember how this was discussed in some detail in “The Empowered Empath: Owning, Embracing and Managing Your Special Gifts.”)
When working with any skill set that I have developed for you, please find out what it can do before you start improving it or simplifying it.
Sometimes well-meaning empaths will simplify without knowing that they’re even doing it. Here’s an example.
Is this really going to be helpful for Empath Empowerment®?
“JOE” is a really smart empath, with many empath gifts. He is used to working hard at his personal development.
And, bless his heart, he had gone through “Become The Most Important Person in the Room” one time. This helped him a lot.
However, he figured that now he had the skill set pretty much handled. So he could just bundle it in with all the other things he was doing for self-improvement.
Fortunately, it slipped out during a session. JOE told me what he had decided to do every day.
To live as a skilled empath, he boiled the whole system of Empath Empowerment® down to saying one sentence out loud every day.
I’m not going to tell you that sentence, because I would feel really upset if some casual reader skimmed this blog post all the way to that sentence and then wound up copying what JOE was doing, which would be a big mistake for anyone. Not just JOE. 😉
The origin? That I can tell you.
It was part of Day 10 in “Become The Most Important Person in the Room.” The sentence came from a technique called “Brand Your Cattle.”
JOE took one sentence out of this technique. Then he turned it into a “magical affirmation.”
Uh-oh! Also, ouch!
Evolving Empaths, Don’t Shortcut Yourself out of Results
You can be sure of this. Any technique that I present to you through a book has been carefully developed. If you do it, as presented, it will work.
Only it won’t work if you use it like something else.
- Like using a “magical sentence” from one of my Empath Empowerment books and substituting it for a parachute after you jump out of a plane.
- Or taking substituting one “magical sentence” for a full technique, which includes what to do, how to do and when to do it.
If you want to take little excerpts of things and make your own designer collection, do this on Pinterest. Why do that to your energy field?
And, please, don’t think you are growing as an empath because you can make yourself a mashup. You deserve better than to treat your mind-body-spirit system like a hobby, right?
In the various books I have written, sure, there are lots of sentences. Some can be found in particular techniques.
But when a sentence is part of a technique, please, either use that full technique as presented to you or don’t bother.
- Not just cheating yourself out of results but also…
- Devaluating that technique for yourself, so it may not work for you in the future.
What If You Just Don’t Have Five Full Minutes?
What If It Is an Emergency?
Deal with the emergency. Imported STUFF is not an emergency. It is one kind of STUFF, and you can prevent it by using the rest of your Empath Empowerment skills.
So if you’re feeling troubled by Imported STUFF, don’t kid yourself.
Other things are bothering you, too.
- Could be different kinds of STUFF (as would be addressed in a session with an RES expert).
- Or it could be a problem in objective reality. Who is saying and doing what in this “Emergency” situation? Maybe you can do something about that!
Better not to do that technique at all. Some future time in your day, you can go and do that technique properly. And then you will get results. 🙂
Becoming Skilled as an Empath Takes Some Time. Not Forever. But a Bit of Time.
Take heart, brave empaths. Your skills can deepen.
But there are no empath shortcuts. No magical sentences. No instant tips and coping tricks for empaths. I mean, sure, you can find loads of them on the Internet. In groups on Facebook. You just won’t find that kind of nonsense recommended at my Empath Empowerment Skills Group on Facebook.
Or anywhere else that I help empaths.
Why not? Because I prefer to do things that actually work. Don’t you?
