Would you like an upgrade, intuitively speaking? Many of us have friends who regale us constantly with tales of their great insights into life. Its like news crawl on the bottom of a TV screen or tweeting with an angel.
So much information from what these folks pick up: Wonderful coincidences, how guides find them parking spaces. Or make store items fall off shelves to signal which puchases these people are “supposed” to make.
Certain of your friends may get hits all day long: Interesting knowledge about ailments of total strangers; vitally “important” messages that pop in day and night.
Do you have trouble keeping up? What if I could give you a quick tip for out-flashing all of this!
Well, Courageous Explorers, lets do it.
Insecurity for Empaths
Gladys, a very talented empath, recently confided her guilty secret to me. Im in a spiritual development group. Everyone except me gets hits on people. They get information in their bodies, physical knowing about people.
I dont get hits. I dont pick up messages in my body. When I hear them talk, I wonder if Im an empath at all.
Lets sort out this mess, Courageous Explorers. For starters, what is an empath?
An empath has at least one lifelong gift for directly experiencing what it is like to be another person.
If you are among the 1 in 20 people wired as an empath, you have one or more gifts. Not necessarily ALL gifts.
What, that isnt enough for you? Dont complain to Rose Rosetree. Yell directly at God. While youre at it, maybe you can complain about having only one head, one pair of feet.
Its so tempting for us humans, comparing ourselves to others. Surely, however, the solution isnt to push harder and harder to keep up with the Psychic Joneses.
Instead, each of us, empath or not, can relax more into our lives and try that really powerful evolutionary technique called Self-Acceptance. Another name for this teeny technique? Gratitude.
Does Empath Skill Mean Getting Hits Constantly?
Heres another bit of good news for Gladys — or any of you Blog-Buddies who have been worrying that youre not flashy enough as an empath.
Empath skill is the opposite of getting hits constantly.
Every born empath has an extra-wide range of perceptual talent. Maybe you have intellectual empath ability or youre an animal empath; perhaps you have an emotional or spiritual or physical gift as an empath.
- To learn if youre an empath at all, or which gift(s) you have, check out Become The Most Important Person in the Room”.
- Or read a generous supply of Empath Quizzes supplied for free at this blog.
- Best of all, take my upcoming Empath Empowerment Level 1 Workshop, April 9-10. It’s not just coming up pretty soon. The workshop will only be given once a year. It does come with a free Empath Check in advance, which you can read about along with other details of the workshop.
Bottom line: You can become a smart Post-New-Age Consumer. Don’t worry about “Everyone else is doing it, chatting up their guides all day long or equating being an empath with being a psychic.”
How Ironic Is This, Fellow Empaths?
When unskilled as an empath, there will be loads of unskilled empath merges daily. Each of these split-second, subconscious shifts in consciousness can bring hits of knowledge.
Sadly, the unskilled empath pays a price for every one of those interesting hits. Every unskilled empath merge results in picking up STUFF, which then lodges within the empaths auric field, causing distress of one sort or another.
Often the form of distress feels very familiar, as it fits with old patterns around lacking self-confidence, weight problems, craving to smoke cigarettes, or whatever might be ones most common patterns of distress.
Subconscious STUFF accumulation, isnt that a pretty high price to pay for a few flashy hits?
A reading is not a healing, particularly an unsolicited reading for a total stranger. All the empath receives with such hits is interesting information, maybe some fun stories to share at the spiritual development group. Wouldnt it be better to just surf the net?
Here’s a Better Alternative
Of course, whats really better is to become a skilled empath. Then you can use your gift(s) for the wonderful benefits that make being an empath so worthwhile.
In the system I teach to help empaths, Empath Empowerment®, we discover how to position consciousness appropriately to turn all empath gifts OFF. This can become an effortless habit during waking hours. Were protected and strengthened this way.
At certain times, when desired, a skilled empath can purposely use a technique for Skilled Empath Merge. This takes maybe a minute, can be done in person or with a photo:
- Skilled Empath Merge supplies depth information, not random little hits that can be the astral equivalent of playing Trivial Pursuit.
- Skilled Empath Merge can be the basis of deep knowledge about the other person.
- Skilled Empath Merge can supplement all the skill sets you have developed for helping other people effectively.
- Skilled Empath Merge never causes STUFF to become stuck inside your aura and chakra databanks.
- Every Skilled Empath Merge increases your wisdom.
Could you learn to do this? Sure, it’s a skill.
Doing Skilled Empath Merge is an advanced set of skills, such big fun, and totally appropriate to learn when you are skilled as an empath.
Book Four in my series for empaths can teach you LOADS of techniques for Skilled Empath Merge that are practical, fun, and safe. That’s “The Master Empath: Turning on Your Empath Gifts at Will — in Love, Business and Friendship (Includes Training in Skilled Empath Merge).”
Yes, with skills, you can do sooooo much better than random psychic-level experiences. Empaths, you owe it to yourself. Learn to distinguish between self-knowledge and service to others, based on responsible skills, versus the myriad of ways that folks today show off about psychic abilities.
