May today’s article cheer you… if you’re an empath but not yet skilled!
Weirdly cheering, yet cheering nonetheless.
What if you are a skilled empath by now, like so many of you Blog Buddies?
Then may today’s article bring you compassion for ways that you used to suffer. Because unskilled empaths can endure suffering that would widely be acknowledged as terrible… if only that suffering were not also so subtle and, therefore, deeply hidden from view.
You see, until we learn good skills of energetic literacy (which of course all of us can do, just like developing the word literacy needed to read this sentence), until we’ve got reliable, basic energetic literacy… how can we clearly understand what used to happen?
How can we understand that everyday suffering wasn’t “My fault” or “Who I am” or “How my life has to be”?
The Presence of Any Type of Empath, While Unskilled
It’s not suprising then if, in the past, you didn’t consciously understand what was happening to you regarding that all-too-human concern, your personal presence…
What was my presence to other people?
How did they see me?
Why didn’t I get nearly enough respect from others? Did my very presence whisper to them, “Belittle me”?
Well, Blog-Buddies who are skilled empaths, at the very least, you finally are getting to read today’s article. 🙂
For more clarity about your past, you can rely on aura reading skills that I’ve developed, plus the rest of my knowledge so far as an empath coach.
Oh yes, as we get started today, you might wish to avail yourself of a hankie. Because what I’m about to describe involves the sad part of your life story.
A story of your past, though. Not the story of your present nor your future. Not now that you have become — or are becoming — a skilled empath.
And what if you’re not any kind of empath, skilled or unskilled?
Well, I’m writing today’s article for you, too. For you, just like the empaths who are reading this article, may today’s words open up your heart of compassion.
What Is Your Personal Presence, Anyway?
Empath or not, since the day you were born, you have had a presence. That presence has evolved right along with you.
Let’s define “presence” as how you seem to other people.
- There’s a social side to it, including the social skills that you use with your fellow creatures.
- There’s also an energetic side to personal presence, subconsciously recognized by all and consciously viewable to every skilled aura reader.
- What if you’re not yet familiar with the term auric modeling? You might wish to check out the link I just gave you before proceeding further. Because auric modeling explains a great deal about the energetic aspect of personal presence.

What Changes When You Become a SKILLED Empath?
Whatever your empath gifts… however many you have… once you’ve gained appropriate skill… guess what?
All that empath talent is turned OFF. This becomes your default, your regular way of living.
No more unskilled empath merges for you! And if there should be a slip-up, you know how to clean it up. Fast.
Welcome to Empath Empowerment®!
Note: “Empath Empowerment” is a term that many people are using today, but there’s only one system for teaching it properly, and the trademark you just saw in our last paragraph provides a clue.” (Note: I just googled “Empath Empowerment” and got 351,000 hits. Many of those hits are from people who have, evidently, spent more time on SEO than me. Whatever! I’ve been focused on helping people.)
Oh yes, Empath Empowerment® also gives you plenty of techniques to for doing Skilled Empath Merge. Which is, IMHO, the big reason why 1 in 20 people on earth today have bothered to incarnate as empaths!
But now let’s go into exploring the impact on an empath’s presence. All we born empaths pay a price until we get skills. And that price includes $$$ Not as influential a presence as we can have as skilled empaths $$$.
In terms of your presence as a person, what’s the big problem with being merely talented as an empath and not yet skilled….?
As you may know, there are many kinds of astral garbage. Many can get into a person’s energy field.
In RES (that’s short for “Rosetree Energy Spirituality”) 15 different kinds of emotional and spiritual garbage have been identified. Glad to say, RES skills of energy HEALING can facilitate permanent healing of every one of those types of energetic STUFF. 🙂
Empath Empowerment®, for instance, includes skills for preventing and healing the one kind of STUFF that unskilled empaths get, Imported STUFF. (You can learn more about that, for sure, along with targeted skills that free up your aura from Imported STUFF. This is what I offer as an empath coach!)
So Here’s the Deal about Your Energy Presence as an Unskilled Empath
Regarding the energetic side of life, every unskilled empath’s aura gets junked up with Imported STUFF.
This distorts how the talented empath seems to other people.
Not to revolt you or anything, but you could picture it like this:
Empath Gladys has a really nice aura, loaded with gorgeous gifts of her soul. Gladys’ aura shows loads of good qualities and strengths that she’s been developing over the years. Mostly her aura is lovely.
Definitely no worse than most other humans on the planet.
Except… oops… she’s got the equivalent of armpit stains on her clothing. And not just under her armpits, but blotching up her entire outfit.
Dare I mention? Also smelly. (In an astral way only. Undoubtedly Empath Gladys’ personal hygiene is really fine — the part she has control over, in nice & soapy, human-type ways.)
Gladys’ fault, all that icky? Not really. Although it would be great if she chose to learn skills that would make all that mess stop.
The icky auric modeling of unskilled empaths, like what I’ve just described, is an energetic and subconscious fact of life. Until Empath Gladys gets skills that stop the Imported STUFF, everybody who meets her subconsciously gets the message, “There’s something OFF about her.”
(Hint: What’s OFF sure aren’t Gladys’ empath gifts. Not yet.)
How About the Social Side of Presence?
Socially, not just energtically, an unskilled empath like Gladys can have a whole bunch of problems — problemsthat are specific to whichever type of empath gift the person has… while not yet a skilled empath.
Let’s sum up, one empath talent at a time. I’ll go into specifics as if Gladys has all 15 kinds of empath talent. (Remember, though, most empaths do not have all 15 kinds. I sure don’t, for instance. To be considered an empath, a person just needs to be born with 1 kind of empath talent.)
Regardless of the type of empath talent, however, social skills are probably lacking compared to the great manners and social finesse that an empath can develop after gaining Empath Empowerment® skills.
Is that true of all Highly Sensitive Persons? Nope. Any type of empath talent can cause an unskilled empath to avoid crowds or feel socially overwhelmed in ways that go beyond what happens to others, even other Highly Sensitive Persons. (As you may know by now, empaths are Highly, Highly Sensitive Persons.)
Okay, here come more specifics.
Type of Empath Talent #1. Physical INTUITION
Unskilled Empath Gladys may be overly aware of health problems and how people look.
With Physical Intuition, unskilled, she may be especially susceptible to pressures concerning The Anorexic Ideal, so confusing to those who seek approval from others.
Unless Empath Gladys also has one or both types of emotional talent as an empath, she may not be able to notice her own emotions very well. When upset, she may head straight to noticing physical discomforts instead.
Type of Empath Talent #2. Physical ONENESS
Unskilled Empath Gladys may have a lot of health concerns and/or worry about her health.
With unskilled Physical Oneness, she may often space out, or have brain fog, because seemingly random sensations move in and out of her body.
Sadly, this type of empath gift is terribly confusing. But once you learn the skills of Empath Empowerment, you will be able to help people with the knowledge you receive. Plus… you won’t be either suffering or confused in this way.
Type of Empath Talent #3. Intellectual Empath Ability
Unskilled Empath Gladys can seem insecure to others when presenting her ideas. Such as, in her student days, having to do reports in front of the class.
Although there are reasons galore why people can dread public speaking — among empaths, folks with this particular empath gift can top the “Who’s Who List for Fear of Public Speaking.”
While unskilled with Intellectual Empath Ability, Gladys may find it difficult to write or do other creative activities, either? How come? All this requires a certain degree of self-trust, which is hard to attain until a person attains a stronger sense of self.
With Intellectual Empath Ability, a certain wishy-washy quality can come up during any argument with others. And should the unskilled empath with this talent land in a group meeting? Oboy!
Even a very pleasant group of people will have different opinions, so this type of conversation can really intimidate somebody like Unskilled Empath Gladys.
Type of Empath Talent #4. Emotional INTUITION
With this kind of empath gift, Unskilled Empath Gladys can find it really, really confusing being with other people. Why? Because people often lie to themselves about what they are feeling, or put their emotions into denial, or send out mixed messages.
Not only can Gladys get all of this info without ever trying. If she has Emotional Intuition, it can be deeply puzzling to her how other people don’t seem to notice what is so obvious to her.
Unskilled Empath Gladys may also find it difficult to engage socially at a level that is appropriate, given the particular relationship. More than others, she will tend to go for what is DEEP, even with people she doesn’t know very well.
In general, having Emotional Intuition without empath skill can cause Gladys to seem a little “off” emotionally when she interacts with others — impacting career as well as relationships.
Type of Empath Talent #5. Emotional ONENESS
Unskilled Empath Gladys can really get clobbered with this one! Have you noticed? Human beings often have varied emotions on any given day. Well, Emotional Oneness brings way, way more variety to the daily emotional parade.
Plus, Unskilled Empath Gladys won’t consciously know the subconscious reason why her moods keep changing. And if she tries to fix things, or figure out what is happening, she’ll only suffer more.
Have you ever heard how “valuable” it is to ask yourself, “Whose emotions are those, anyway?”
Ergg. That will mess up Gladys (or anybody who tries it) more than ever. And, of course, there will also be zero effectiveness at either preventing or removing Imported STUFF.
Besides the mood swings that often result from Emotional Oneness, what else can cause a presence problem for Unskilled Empath Gladys?
Mental confusion and low self-esteem are examples of the many indirect consequences of dealing with mislabeled, random emotions. All of this can distort Gladys’ social presence.
Type of Empath Talent #6. Spiritual INTUITION
Unskilled Empath Gladys may not spend much time thinking about religion or spirituality. Yet that won’t protect her from Imported STUFF, doing unskilled empath merges with people who DO spend lots of time thinking about those topics.
What if, for instance, Gladys happens to live in America’s Bible Belt? Good luck, then, Unskilled Empath Gladys! Being around people with strong religious beliefs, or spiritual conflicts — or Catholic Guilt, Muslim Guilt, Jewish Guilt, etc. — can add to Gladys’ load of energetic discomfort.
Not that the Spiritual Intuition will necessary include specific downloads of information. As an unskilled empath with this gift, Gladys will just find that she’s socially awkward with a lot of people — a disheveled social presence resulting from inner information that is not-quite-conscious.
Type of Empath Talent #7. Spiritual ONENESS
Not to depress you’ all or anything, but…
Multiply the previously-mentioned awkwardness many fold if Glady’s gift as an unskilled empath is Spiritual ONENESS rather than Spiritual INTUITION.
Oh yes, add an exponential factor if Unskilled Empath Gladys happens to have both gifts. Haha. (And I’m speaking from personal experience here. Past but very, very personal.)
As an unskilled empath with Spiritual Oneness, Gladys may experience many shifts about the vividness and stability of reality as she perceives it.
Not that a single word about anything “spiritual” will necessarily cross her mind.
By way of analogy, it’s as if Gladys sits in a room on a sunny day. Unbeknownst to her, the blinds are continually being adjusted: Light to dark to dim… with no prior warning.
Imagine what it’s like adjusting to that, Blog-Buddies, especially if you don’t have concepts like “How much light is in the room.”
Or “How often every day do I do unskilled empath merges with people who suffer spiritually, whether consciously or not?”
Hey, that’s one of my mottoes.
No repining, even if the presence of any unskilled empath tends to be quite a mess. STUFF can always, always, always be healed. (Another RES motto.)
But really, all this has been intense enough for one day’s blogging. Intense even for me, and I’m a skilled empath by now… as every empath reading this article can be, as well.
Any comments so far? Any stories? Any of you empaths NOT need that hankie? 😉
