Deeper Perception Made Practical

Celebrity Empaths. Easy Flash Contest

Celebrity Empaths. Satisfy your curiosity at our Easy Flash Contest. Starting now.

Celebrity Empaths. Easy Flash Contest.

  • Given that “Flash Contest” means entering during a very short time.
  • And “Easy” means ridiculously easy to nominate the public figures of your choice.

Yes, let’s have some lighthearted fun, answering one question about different public figures of interest to you. And that question would be…

Is that Celebrity an Empath? Yes or No

If you’re already familiar with my system of Empath Empowerment®, feel free to skip ahead. Namely, to: “Celebrity Empaths. ENTERING Our Easy Flash Contest.”

Otherwise, please join me for a quick intro. Because what you’re about to read here could make a huge difference for your quality of life.

Especially if you’ve been wondering:

  • Could I be an empath? (This quiz can help you to answer that question.)
  • To clarify, what are MY empath gifts? (This article gives you an answer… from America’s most experienced Empath Coach.)
  • Isn’t all advice for empaths interchangeable?

As a Matter of Fact, I Can Give You a Good Answer to that Last Question

Nooooo! I published the first book for empaths in English. (That was “Empowered by Empathy.” Long since replaced by a much more up-to-date book, “Empath Empowerment in 30 Days.”)

Surprisingly nor not, Amazon.com now sells 3,000 different books for empaths. Decidedly different.

Here’s a quick intro to my version of Empath Coaching.

Nonetheless, you sure don’t have to study with me. Or buy a thing! In order to enjoy our new Flash Contest about Celebrity Empaths.

Celebrity Empaths. Sure, Some of them Are Empaths

While many are not. And wouldn’t you like to know who is which?

Every day you may follow so many public figures on Twitter. Or get to know about them from Facebook.

Besides that, for politicians, you’ve always got newspapers of record. Recommended inasmuch as they don’t give us “fake news.”

Lately the political news hasn’t been so great in America. Or England. Or Australia (currently, still, Land of Fires, unfortunately). And I’ve got Blog-Buddies in all these places. As well as Asia and other countries in Europe. The Mideast. Africa. Not many lately in South America or Central America. Although plenty in “The Land of EH!” (AKA Canada)

Wherever you live now, you’ve got public figures. And you’re curious about your faves. So, if you’re into learning about having a better life as an empath, this contest could be fun.

This is a FLASH Contest about Celebrity Empaths

So be sure to enter asap. Definitely, enter as often as you like. But only until midnight this Sunday night. (Regardless of which time zone you’re in, midnight is midnight.)

And you won’t even need to send a photo to enter this super-easy contest. I’ll find a good photo for you. Since I’m not kidding about “easy.”

BTW, I hope you do know this already: Every photo is an aura photo. Regular photos are plenty for me to use, when awarding contest prizes. And haha! Everybody who enters will win.

Celebrity Empaths. ENTERING Our Easy Flash Contest.

Right away, let’s be clear. With this contest, if you enter, you’ll win.

I will research whether or not the person you nominate is an empath or not. There’s one other possibility, which I’ll mention on an as-needed basis. So this third option will become one of the comments below.

It’s a Flash Contest. Which means the faster you enter the better. On Sunday at midnight (in your time zone) this long weekend contest will end.

Okay, here come the rules.

  1. Enter as often as you like.
  2. Enter by creating a separate COMMENT below. One for each entry. (The style of this blog has been short comments. At least for the last five years or so. If your comment is too long, by our standards, I’ll chunk it up. But otherwise change nothing.)
  3. Choose one public figure for each of your entries.
  4. Add at least a sentence about whether you’d guess that person is an empath. Or not. And, especially, WHY you think so!

Hey, you might wish to let a bunch of friends know. The more, the merrier. Because who isn’t curious about which celebs are empaths? Versus not empaths at all!

    Living on Earth says:

    Contests like these can be a great inspiration Rose. Thank you!

    My nomination is the journalist Masha Gessen. Ever since Isabella nominated her for the Enlightenment Life List and watching few of her videos I wondered if she could also be an empath.

  2. 2
    Living on Earth says:

    Another nomination is actress Rachel Weisz.

    I’ve been watching older movies lately (aired before 2012) which included her. Her demeanor reminds me of Natalie Portman a bit, who you previously mentioned that is an empath. So I wonder if Ms. Weisz could be one as well.

  3. 3
    Living on Earth says:

    I’d also like to nominate the Swedish actress Noomi Rapace.

    The typical roles she plays are of strong females with depth of character. I wonder if being an empath might have anything to do with it.

  4. 4
    Ethan says:

    I always enjoy your contests Rose-A Flash one even better-some fun for a cold day here in Canada.

    I would like to know if Keanu Reeves is an empath or not.

  5. 5
    Eve says:

    I’m curious about sewing instructor Pamela Leggett.

    I am guessing she is an empath because she seems very gentle and kind.

  6. 6
    Ethan says:

    Why? Although I’ve never met him I have read time and again about people who had met Keanu in real-life and how normal he was, and humble.

    People that met him said he was just like anyone else and had a calm energy about him. I’m curious!

  7. 7

    LIVING ON EARTH, EVE, ETHAN — thank you for getting this contest off to a rollicking start.

    Especially appreciated — your WHYs for each nomination. I’ll be getting to these, maybe tomorrow. Meanwhile, I promise that I WILL help every nomination to win sometime soon-ish.

    Liane says:

    My husband, Tom, is curious about Larry Bird. He’s a former professional basket ball player.

    No reason, just curious : )

  9. 9
    Liane says:

    My nomination is Kit Harington of Game of Thrones. He went through a rough spell after the final season.

    Not that the show was ending… more about toll it took on him portraying Jon Snow.

  10. 10
    Liane says:

    Also nominating Maggie Smith, of Downton Abbey. She nails the part of matriarch Dowager Dutchess Grantham.

    I’m curious to see if the least likely character to be described as an empath, is actually played by an empath.

  11. 11

    LIANE and TOM, what fun-and-fascinating additions to our FLASH Contest. I’ll be reporting back soonish. Meanwhile, thank you.

  12. 12
    Tricia says:

    Is comedian Maria Bamford an empath? Her comedy, while not appealing to everyone, is raw and heartfelt.

    She’s open about her struggles with mental illness. I admire her efforts to live life as a good person and her hilarious self-effacing honesty when she falls short.

  13. 13
    Jnana says:

    I wanted nominations from politics, the arts and spirituality but the political one has fallen from grace and the one from the arts is more a human rights activist.

  14. 14
    Jnana says:

    In looking up people to nominate, I was surprised to find so many of the corrupt occupying high positions on top ten lists.

    I was also taken aback that most on the list of most admired by people in my country are those in extreme spiritual addiction.

  15. 15
    Jnana says:

    I’m nominating Loung Ung author of First They Killed My Father, a book on the Cambodian genocide that so moved me. Can empaths survive such an ordeal? Unskilled ones?

    Then again, that her life is given over to humanitarian work today, both in Cambodia and her adopted country, could it be that she is an empath? (Not that non-empaths can’t do humanitarian work.)

  16. 16
    Jnana says:

    I’m nominating Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati who heads Bihar School of Yoga in India. I learnt yoga from a branch of this school.

    I nominated his guru for the Enlightenment Life List so many years ago. Not in enlightenment. Perhaps this swami could at least be an empath?

  17. 17
    Jnana says:

    Since there may be multiple swamis with this name, I’ve included a link

  18. 18

    TRICIA and JNANA, what magnificently thoughtful nominations.

    You Blog-Buddies who read posts here regularly bring a real depth of curiosity.

  19. 19

    But what about you lurkers, or total newbies to this blog. You’re totally invited to nominate people as well.

    Go for it! Aren’t you curious? Yes, go for it!

  20. 20
    Leo Watts says:

    I’ll nominate Jalen Brunson, awarded College Athlete of The Decade, two time NCAA basketball champion, and current Dallas Mavericks player.

    He has a subtle intensity to him I find interesting.

  21. 21
    Leo Watts says:

    I’ll also nominate J Balvin, by now a world famous reggaeton singer recently featured during the super bowl halftime show.

    His music and performances always seemed to have a certain sensitivity to them, especially considering the genre.

  22. 22
    An Avid Reader says:

    I am not sure if a former president counts as a celebrity or not– but I wonder if Bill Clinton is an empath.

    I know he is charming, but am curious to know if, in part, his ability to connect with people is due to being an empath. Thank you!

  23. 23
    AmandaR says:

    Hi there. I’d like to nominate the ig-influencer Ali Michael.

    I’ve always wondered if she could either be a highly sensitive person, or an empath.

  24. 24

    Fine nominations here, definitely thought-provoking! By using appropriate Empath Coaching skills, I hope the answers will bring a high truth value.

    Which would be worthy of the spirit in which all of you have nominates these celebrities. Thank you, LEO WATTS, AVID READER, and AMANDAR. (And welcome to my blog, AMANDAR.)

  25. 25
    Engineer Jesse says:

    I am wondering if Marcul Lemonis of the TV show “The Profit” is an empath. Part of the show is to dig into business owner “issues” and see if its possible to turn their businesses around.

    It appears on the show as though he can empathize with the business owner…maybe he can?

  26. 26
    Engineer Jesse says:

    I was also wondering about Steve Irwin, the Australian zookeeper/ animal activist. He died back in 2006…(14 years ago already…).

    His shows were always a lot of fun to watch.

  27. 27
    Engineer Jesse says:

    Also, Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers).

    I would imagine that his ability to connect with children on an authentic level like he did was due in part to some empath gifts.

  28. 28

    ENGINEER JESSE, thank you for a diversity of fascinating nominees.

    (Including your Comment #29, which came in after this comment from me. Now I’m revising.

  29. 29
    Engineer Jesse says:

    And of course James Garner, the actor who played Maverick and James Rockford.

    He seemed to always play characters who in the trenches of life making things work!

    Janice says:

    Hi Rose! I would like to ask about Eleanor Roosevelt.

  31. 31
    Janice says:

    I am curious because:
    1. I really admire her.

  32. 32
    Janice says:

    2. She was in Enlightenment at the end of her life.

  33. 33
    Janice says:

    3. The lifetime ended in 1962. Not that one aura could give us an answer, but I am curious to learn more a bit more about how common empaths were, compared to earlier.

  34. 34
    Janice says:

    4. She had a very difficult life and suffered a lot. Her choices in life were remarkable. She showed so much caring and humility. et cetera! …. but was she an empath? I just don’t know yet! 🙂

    I’m curious because it could help enrich my understanding of her as a hero of mine. (Which she will remain, either way!)

  35. 35
    Janice says:

    I am also curious about Bobby Kennedy. This lifetime ended in 1968, so it will be interesting from a historical perspective.

  36. 36
    Janice says:

    If I had to guess about RFK, I would guess “no.”

    Before the last chapter of his life (between his brother’s assassination and his own), he was known for ruthlessness and black-and-white morality.

  37. 37
    Janice says:

    He is also known for having really “evolved” over the decades of his public life.

    He changed a lot, and for the better. At least that’s the historical narrative.

  38. 38
    Janice says:

    He is also someone who is hero-worshipped. Sometimes we want our heroes to have all the “good” (to you) attributes… like he must be an empath, and must be in Enlightenment, and must be this and must be that.

    I guess I consider this a chance to appreciate how life and people can be more complex than that.

  39. 39
    Janice says:

    Thank you!

  40. 40

    JANICE, thank you for these nominations… and especially the reasons for them.

    Thoughtful and altogether up to your standard, I’d say!

  41. 41
    Evgenia says:

    I am interested to learn about Meryl Streep. I was always wondering how she manager to stay out of Hollywood craziness but yet be so famous.

    I am curious if maybe she is an empath and that gift helped her navigate so smoothly.

  42. 42
    Evgenia says:

    Also would love to know about John Malkovich, he has a lot of roles where he plays a very sensitive person but is he in life?

  43. 43
    Bruce says:

    Please tell us about Billy Porter. Not everyone can pull off wearing a tuxedo dress. Can he do it because he’s too skilled an empath to care how others react?

  44. 44
    A Curious Lurker says:

    Is the author Elizabeth Gilbert an empath?
    Grazie mille!

  45. 45
    AmandaR says:

    Hi again, I wonder if Аna Kraš is an empath.

    She seems to have something very very sensitive about her. Thank you

  46. 46
    Kathleen says:

    I would like to nominate the musician Hozier. I really enjoy his music, and would like to know more about him.

  47. 47
    A Curious Lurker says:

    Was Jiddu Krishnamurti an empath? Now this would interest me A LOT. ‘Celebrity’ … in new age circles, yes.

  48. 48

    Thanks so much for spicing up our contest, EVGENIA, BRUCE, A CURIOUS LURKER, and AMANDAR.

    Of course, AMANDAR and others, you’all are invited to nominated as many public figures as you like. That’s what this contest is for.

  49. 49

    It may take me some days to do all this research, but I’m totally game. Kind of like digging out after a snowstorm.

    This winter we haven’t had anything like a big snowstorm, here in Northern Virginia. So the flurry of curiosity questions you’all raise can be my delectable snowstorm!

  50. 50

    Please share this post. Please invite your Oscar-watching friends!

  51. 51
    A Curious Lurker says:

    My guess is that Jiddu Krishnamurti was an empath (maybe even a molecular empath) and Elizabeth Gilbert, maybe not an empath after all.

    [Blog Monitor’s request: Please add WHY. That’s potentially a fun part of this contest.]

  52. 52
    Kathleen says:

    I would also like to nominate the author Elif Batuman. I love her writing, and it seems to nuanced and sensitive to me.

  53. 53
    AmandaR says:

    Ali Michael = empath. Ana Kras, no. This is what I would say.

    [Blog Monitor’s request: Please add WHY. That’s potentially a fun part of this contest.]

  54. 54
    Helen88 says:

    I nominate Turid Rugass. She is a dog training celebrity and wrote several books on how dogs communicate with their body language and lectures internationally.

    I am reading some of her books currently and am very impressed by her understanding of dogs and their subtle signals. She has a unique perspective that is very considerate of dogs and how sensitive they are.

  55. 55
    Helen88 says:

    Also David Attenborough.

    He has a special appreciation for nature that perhaps he gained from being an empath?

  56. 56

    Newcomers KATHLEEN and HELEN88, wonderful nominations here. Thank you very much.

    And thanks for more thoughts from you both, AMANDAR and CURIOUSLURKER.

  57. 57
    Lindsey says:

    Thank you Rose for this contest! Fun!

    I am curious about author Shel Silverstein, one of my favorite poets from Childhood. I think he might just be an Empath. 🙂

  58. 58
    Lindsey says:

    I don’t know how to find out if he is, but it’d be interesting if so! 🙂

  59. 59
    Lindsey says:

    Also, am interested in learning if golfer Seve Ballesteros is. I was always impressed with his touch around the greens and his creative shot making.

    “Touch” is a golf term used predominantly when describing a golfer with amazing accuracy.

  60. 60
    Lindsey says:

    Thank you again for doing this Rose! I love these kinds of contests.😃

  61. 61

    LINDSEY, you’re so welcome. Fascinating about a golfer with touch!

    I enjoy contests like these too. Since I learn so much about new people, both the people being research and those entering the contest. Plus, it’s one of the most shareable kinds of posts at this blog.

  62. 62

    Incidentally, we’re getting fairly close to reaching a new milestone of blog comments.

    Blog-Buddies, I’ll let you know when we’ve reached 59,000.

  63. 63
    Ann says:

    Thanks for offering this fun contest, Rose!

    After having just watched the final episode of “The Good Place,” I’m curious to know if some of the actors on it are empaths, namely

  64. 64
    Ann says:

    1. Ted Danson (I see he’s on the Enlightenment List!)

  65. 65
    Ann says:

    2. Jameela Jamil

  66. 66
    Ann says:

    And recently at the end of the day I’ll rewatch episodes of Parks and Recreation, and have been especially impressed with Rob Lowe’s performance this time through.

    I see there is an aura reading of him from a few years ago, though I don’t think it states whether or not he is an empath.

  67. 67
    Ann says:

    Finally, Michael Schur is the writer/producer of both The Good Place and Parks and Recreation — I’m curious if someone who writes such great TV shows is an empath.

    Thanks for the contest, Rose!

  68. 68

    ANN, I just love every one of your COMMENTS. In fact, you’ve inspired me. I went in and tweaked the final contest requirement. Haha!

    If you can find the time, please supplement these great nominations. Add some quick comments to tell us: Most interesting of all: WHY do you think that person is or isn’t an empath?

  69. 69
    Julie says:

    I am wondering if author Carson McCullers might have been an empath.

    She wrote her characters with a perceptiveness and lack of judgement about race, disability, or gender.

    Seeing people just as people.

  70. 70
    Julie says:

    I also wonder about author F. Scott Fitzgerald, and whether he was an empath.

    His descriptions of Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby seem very sensitively and beautifully described.

  71. 71
    Julie says:

    I am also curious to learn whether contemporary author Julie Buntin is an empath.

    She writes very compassionately about the perils of drug abuse and losing a friend to drug abuse.

  72. 72

    Triply fascinating nominations, JULIE!

    And thank you for telling us the best part of all, WHY you have the sense that you do about whether that contest nominee is an empath. Well done!

  73. 73
    AmandaR says:

    About Ali Michael: I am an empath. A skilled one. I can relate to her in many ways, sensitivity wise. I’d guess intellectual empath ability, emotional oneness and spiritual oneness.

  74. 74

    AMANDAR, thanks. It’s great news that you’re a Skilled Empath.

    Thanks for supplying more WHY. And I think it is a grace note that you said you would “guess” about her empath gifts. Unless you’re a trained Empath Coach — at least in Empath Empowerment — one would be guessing. Definitely a grace note that you noted that.

  75. 75
    A Curious Lurker says:

    Adding the ‘why’. Jiddu Krishnamurti – just the way he seemed to be taking it ‘all’ in.

    Maybe we should not start adding the empath gifts? Because it is just guessing. (Okay. My guess would be molecular empath).

  76. 76
    A Curious Lurker says:

    Elizabeth Gilbert – her fine perceptiveness. Maybe a skilled empath, or just a highly sensitive person?

    I saw that both Krishnamurti and Elizabeth Gilbert are on your enlightenment list.

  77. 77

    Thanks for these add-ons, A CURIOUS LURKER. I think they were instructive, not just examples of how YOU personally were thinking but about how many people today think.

    For instance, we’re interested in being empaths. Maybe even have done the bit of learning required to become a Skilled Empath. (BTW, here’s my current favorite link for understanding what makes Empath Empowerment distinctive in the world today.)

  78. 78

    Really, there isn’t much value at all in speculating who is — or isn’t — an empath. One reason I made this Flash Contest available was to give you a chance to purposely do it.

    Rather than casually fall into doing it.

  79. 79

    With this contest, you’ll get an answer from a responsible source — a straight up-and-down, yes-or-no, answer. As I promised you.

    And maybe, for some of you Blog-Buddies, you’ll feel a gentle wake-up call to STOP the other kind of speculation, the kind that won’t bring you the satisfaction that all contest entrants will receive.

  80. 80

    Also, I wonder if any of you Blog-Buddies noticed a pattern among those WHY explanations that some folks supplied: Two different kinds of reasoning.

    Those of you who like puzzles might enjoy taking another look at those contest comments before moving onward. Something else that might be fun to guess!

  81. 81

    I’ll add the last bunch of WHYs that came in last night. I’m about to make them live this morning.

    How about this. Right afterward, I’ll get back to you. Prepare for some useful learning you’all might get… from the distinction I’ll make between the two different kinds of reasoning.

  82. 82
    Ann says:

    Thanks for posting my comments, ROSE, and also for the encouragement to offer why I think each of these people I nominated might be an empath.

  83. 83
    Ann says:

    Well, first, I will (sheepishly) admit, I’m only using Stage 1 Energetic Literacy in these nominations — not anything very sophisticated in choosing them. (Hope that’s ok!)

  84. 84
    Ann says:

    I liked Ted Danson’s nuanced portrayal of Michael in *The Good Place* – a demon who turns out to be actually quite good, and wants to experience being human – I found his playing of the character sensitive and touching.

  85. 85
    Ann says:

    I thought Jameela Jamil was hilarious as Tahani, embodying the character perfectly – and beyond that, was impressed that this was her first “real” acting gig.

  86. 86
    Ann says:

    For Rob Lowe, he brings a lot of nuance to the character of Chris Traeger on Parks and Recreation, in ways that are both funny and poignant.

  87. 87
    Ann says:

    As for Michael Schur, I think it’s fascinating that he developed two of the best TV shows (smartest and funniest, IMO) in recent years.

    They’ve both been hits, which of course doesn’t mean anything in terms of empath or not, but at least the Good Place seems much “deeper” to me than just about anything else on television.

  88. 88

    Okay, now all the contest entries are fully in.

    Thank you so much, everybody who entered. And you’ll definitely be winning. Some today, some in the near future, as I do the research required to find a suitable photo and research it.

  89. 89

    So, did any of you notice HOW different folks took one of two different approaches… as to WHY you thought your nominee(s) might be empaths?

  90. 90

    Here’s a hint: How ANN wrote in Comment #83, “Well, first, I will (sheepishly) admit, I’m only using Stage 1 Energetic Literacy in these nominations — not anything very sophisticated in choosing them.”

  91. 91

    Some of you took an energy approach, an intuitive approach, maybe even an aura reading approach.

    Whereas ANN and some others took a HUMAN approach. This is always preferable if you’re describing why you feel what you feel about a fellow human being.

  92. 92

    That energy approach is certainly understandable. So many people you’ll meet today, for example, will do Energy Talk. (And if you read “The New Strong,” you’ll understand why. As well as what to do about it.)

  93. 93

    So, Energy Talk is popular. In fact, loads of other empath teachers do Energy Talk constantly.

    Evidently they’re quite proud of doing that, even though usually it amounts to what ANN just called “Only Stage 1 Energetic Literacy.”

  94. 94
  95. 95

    But here’s the deal. Those of you who’ve learned Empath Empowerment ® would have learned it from me. Since I’m the only Empath Coach authorized to teach the trademarked system.

    (And I’m really not responsible for all the folks who copycat the name “Empath Empowerment.”)

  96. 96

    In that case, you know which empath gifts you have. And you know why, when you learned, I wasn’t going to tell you. Not even if you booked a personal session for that purpose.

    Learning in this way strengthened you as empaths, strengthened your discernment and trust in yourself. Remember? Because I laid that out very clearly.

  97. 97

    So, especially, those of you who are skilled empaths… you can appreciate why I believe it isn’t your job or mine to name other people’s empaths gifts. (I’ve done this in a small number of articles, only done it about celebrities who are highly unlikely to bother reading a one-person blog like this one. And the other exception is that when my Energy Spirituality client has Molecular Empath Ability, I’ll announce that, just because that empath gift is so rare.)

  98. 98

    Thus, although I’m a professional Empath Coach, I wouldn’t do this casually. Certainly I wouldn’t recommend that any of you do this kind of thing in the future, guess which empath gifts another person has.

    If you learned Empath Empowerment from me, you learned skills for yourself. I wasn’t training you as an Empath Coach, was I?

  99. 99

    In case it adds incentive, I’ll tell you that when people guess other folks’ empath gifts — or even guess if they’re empaths in the first place — the batting average wouldn’t get that guesser into the World Series.

    A notable example here is somebody who opined that a certain celebrity has Molecular Empath Ability.

  100. 100

    Funny thing about that particular gift. In my research I have never yet found somebody who has ONLY that one empath gift, being a Molecular Empath. And I mean never!

    Oops!
