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, 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!

    Fact is, Stage 1 Energetic Literacy is like that. Usually wrong.

    So let me encourage all of you reading now to avoid doing that. Period. Especially since…

  2. 102

    You’re all really great at speaking the language of Human. Generally, it sounds more intelligent. And relatable.

    Like this great nomination from LIVING ON EARTH in Comment #2, of Rachel Weisz: “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. 103

    Or how about this Comment #3, also from LIVING ON EARTH: “The typical roles [Noomi Rapace} plays are of strong females with depth of character. I wonder if being an empath might have anything to do with it.”

    Definitely Human Language. Way to go, Blog-Buddies. And not just for this Flash Contest but IN LIFE! Unless you’re doing an official aura reading, Stage 3 Energetic Literacy. In which case, there’s… a ring of authenticity… due to the literacy.

  4. 104

    Later today I’ll get back here and comment on some of these great nominations.

    Again, a big thank you to all who’ve participated here.

  5. 105
    Janice says:

    I am also curious about Michael Schur. He not only created Parks & Rec and The Good Place, he was also a writer/producer The Office!!! Three of my all time favorite feel-good shows!

    Parks & Rec and The Office have the best couples in tv or movies – Pam & Jim and Ben & Leslie! (Not that big of an Eleanor/Chidi fan, though I LOVED the show).

  6. 106

    JANICE, thank you for adding to our ongoing conversation. Just because we’re no longer taking entries for the Flash Contest…. doesn’t mean no more comments.

    I’ll bet a lot of you Blog-Buddies have (or will have) reactions and additions, as I begin researching. Yes, bring ’em on!

  7. 107

    And yes, I’m going to do a bit of extra research on these public figures while I’m at it, nominating them for the Spiritual Enlightenment List.

    Easiest way to track down the results is to start at the link just provided, which takes you to Page 38 of the comments for that popular article. (Each page can hold up to 100 comments.) If you can’t easily track down the public figure in that way, go to this NOMINATED for the Enlightenment List article. Just search alphabetically. Easy-peasy!

  8. 108

    LIVING ON EARTH, thanks for your leadership at this post (as usual, since you’re one of many readers I can count on to comment here often), bringing us our first nominee: journalist Masha Gessen.

    On my Sensitivity Scale going from 1 to 20 (empaths with any empath gifts whatsoever score a 20), Gessen rates a 4. Not an empath. Although she is in Enlightenment, as I’ve researched previously.

  9. 109

    Next, responding to Comment #2, regarding actress Rachel Weisz…

    On my Sensitivity Scale, Rachel Weisz is a 5… So she’s a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), but not an empath.

  10. 110

    Related to your Comment #2, LIVING ON EARTH, might I suggest? Demeanor doesn’t reveal a thing about a person’s degree of sensitivity. It’s about…. demeanor.

    Oboy, let the learning continue, right?

  11. 111

    Last up for today, Blog-Buddies, let’s go over to the third nomination from LIVING ON EARTH. Is Swedish actress Noomi Rapace an empath?

    On my Sensitivity Scale, Noomie Rapace scores a 3. Nowhere close to being an empath.

  12. 112

    However, this might be worth noting. At the time of the photo link in the last comment, what else showed big-time in Noomie Rapace’s aura? “Feed me.”

  13. 113

    In short, Noomie just might be struggling like many another actress today, in order to fulfill the Anorexic Ideal.

    In my experience, some people become more nervous when under-fed. More high strung than they would otherwise be. And, if you’re not an expert aura reader (specializing in recognizing empaths), one could easily mistake that high-strung quality for high sensitivity. Not so.

  14. 114
    Patricia says:

    My gosh, I had no idea that you would find info like this. To be honest, I expected very predictable results, as if smart people, especially empaths would have a special feeling.

    In contrast, these research result are absolutely revolutionary, eye opening.

  15. 115
    Patricia says:

    Seems like, I expected the Flash Contest to have easy ideas I could skim over in a couple minutes. The reality couldn’t be more different.

    These first research comments from you, Rose, are worth thoughtful consideration. I really hope that we Blog-Buddies can spread the word. I think your findings aren’t just counter-culture but really important.

  16. 116
    Patricia says:

    Thank you very much for being my Empath Coach.

  17. 117

    PATRICIA, thank you so much for your thoughtful response.

    With such an abundance of content on the Web about empath everything, I am touched that you stopped to read and reflect. But then you, and other Blog-Buddies have an uncommon thirst for truth.

  18. 118

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this Flash Contest gives many of you an Empath’s Wakeup Cocktail that you will never forget.

    Remember, one of the purposes of Energy Spirituality is spiritual awakening. Frankly, that’s what’s on offer here.

  19. 119
    Living on Earth says:

    wow, thank you for very educational and detailed response Rose!

  20. 120
    Living on Earth says:

    Comment #113 is extra fascinating for me Rose!

    I’m much more aware these days the affects of food may have on my whole system. Its so human and fascinating to me that I’m exploring more of it in my daily life now. And thanks to my personal session with you, I’m on the right direction for what’s specifically right for me at this time.

  21. 121

    You’re welcome, LIVING ON EARTH. Food has such an impact on our consciousness, not just our physical health.

    One way I’ve helped some Energy Spirituality clients has been to bring them the strength to stop comparing themselves to today’s way-too-skinny actors. (That would be sessions of Energy Spirituality ENERGY HEALING.) Removing STUFF related to social pressure to match that Anorexic Ideal.

  22. 122

    Of course, Energy Spirituality doesn’t help with medical or health problems. For that, there are plenty of well qualified experts.

    That said, how can I help during sessions?

  23. 123

    Through Soul Thrill Aura Research®, as in your session, LIVING ON EARTH.

    Personally I don’t know of anyone outside Energy Spirituality who offers a service like this. Do you, Blog-Buddies?

  24. 124

    Here’s a sample of me researching food choices, using Soul Thrill Aura Research. That demo just happened to get caught on video.

    COMMENT below if you’ve got any related questions or reactions, Blog-Buddies. And thank you for the acknowledgment of how it helped you, LIVING ON EARTH.

  25. 125

    Hey, I just realized, an acronym for EARTH is HEART.

    Wowee !!!!

  26. 126
    Living on Earth says:

    A much needed Empath’s Wakeup Cocktail indeed.

    Yet another proof that things are usually not how they seem, which would be Stage 1 Energetic Literacy.

  27. 127
    Living on Earth says:

    More importantly. Another reminder for the value and significance of developing proper skills and credentials to effectively assess ourselves or others.

  28. 128
    Living on Earth says:

    Thank you thank you.

    I’m looking forward to reading about the remaining nominees.

  29. 129

    You’re welcome, LIVING ON EARTH. It seems to me that many “spiritual teachers” and “empath teachers” today don’t believe in ever saying no. Or raising up standards.

    Thanks to all of you Blog-Buddies who appreciate Comments #108 – 113 in the spirit intended.

  30. 130
    Living on Earth says:

    In case it helps someone…

    I went into my personal session with Rose, assuming something was “wrong with my aura” and that I needed an Energy Spirituality Energy Healing session.

  31. 131
    Living on Earth says:

    It turned out to be a very significant Energy Spirituality ENERGY READING Session.

    Gist of it, I was consuming wrong type of food for me. Equally important my diet was lacking the type that is very essential for my well being now.

  32. 132
    Living on Earth says:

    So I’d love to learn more on “Food has such an impact on our consciousness, not just our physical health.”

  33. 133

    Thanks for this share, LIVING ON EARTH.

    Funnily enough, I don’t have anything general to say about the impact of food on consciousness. It’s very, very personal. Which is why I love to do sessions of Soul Thrill Aura Research.

  34. 134

    Incidentally, many of us are in the fortunate position of doing this kind of research when our health is excellent.

    We’re self-actualizing. Fine-tuning.

  35. 135

    However, if you’re under a doctor’s care… Or your health is delicate… I’ll be asking you that. And it’s important to tell me the truth. As well as my ALWAYS instruction for all clients who do Soul Thrill Aura Research on different kinds of food:

    If you’re having health problems, be sure to consult with your physician before making changes to your diet.

  36. 136

    On an upbeat note, just before getting back to this blog tonight I had a follow-up session with Joe. In our last session we did… of all things… Soul Thrill Aura Research on different types of diet for him.

    One choice was a clear favorite. Six weeks later — tonight — what did Joe report?

  37. 137

    It’s been super-easy for him to change over to this eating regimen. He’s feeling mentally clear and is accomplishing more than usual. And yes, he’s dropped some pounds. (As he hoped that he might.)

    I wish that everybody considering a different diet would include some names of well-known diets in a session of Soul Thrill Aura Research. Because I’ve seen the difference it can make, learning through research rather than trial and error.

  38. 138
    Keen Learner says:

    Happy for Joe!

    I’ve researched diets with Rose before, and it’s been really helpful to avoid things that sound great in theory… but would have not been very good for me personally.

  39. 139

    Pretty fascinating, isn’t it, KEEN LEARNER? Thank you for sharing.

  40. 140

    Continuing to deliver the research I promised you, Contest Entrants, let’s scamper over to Comment #4. That would be here, at this link to the previous page o’ comments.

    For researching the Canadian actor, I’ll use this photo.

  41. 141

    Yes, according to research by this Empath Coach, Keanu Reeves scores a 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. He IS an empath.

    Thanks for your nomination, ETHAN from Canada!

  42. 142

    Next, EVE, I’ll research your delightful nomination of sewing instructor Pamela Leggett. Here’s a gorgeous photo of her AND one of her creations.

    Surprisingly or not, Pamela scores 1 on my Sensitivity Scale. That ruggedness doesn’t keep her from being a fine teacher, though, as you know from personal experience, EVE.

  43. 143

    Next comes Comment #8, with TOM’S nominee of former pro basketball player Larry Bird. I’m game!

    Let’s use this photo for the research. On my Sensitivity Scale, Mr. Bird scores a 1. Like many of the most successful people around, but as far from being an empath as is humanly possible.

  44. 144

    Next, LIANE, comes due attention paid to your Comment # 9, nominating Kit Harington of “Game of Thrones.”

    It really is terrifying to contemplate the toll it takes on actors who play intense roles. (How intense, in this case, playing Jon Snow? I’ll never know. At least if I’m able to continue never watching a single scene from that much beloved series. Beloved, yes. But way too intense for me, personally.)

  45. 145

    LIANE, I’ll use this photo of Harington for today’s research. It shows him playing himself, of course.

    Harington scores 1 out of 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Remember, LIANE and other Blog-Buddies, actors are in show business. The good ones can act sensitive with expression, voice, etc. That isn’t the same as necessarily having much sensitivity at all.

  46. 146

    For most actors (and also people who aren’t actors) sensitivity is a performance.

  47. 147

    In Comment #10, LIANE, you nominate Maggie Smith, of Downton Abbey. I love how you put it:

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

  48. 148

    The image I chose is current, and not in role. You’ll see the great actress as herself if you scroll down at this article in “The Guardian.”

    Yes, Maggie Smith is an empath, scoring 20 out of a possible 20 on my Sensitivity Scale.

  49. 149
    Jamie says:

    Can’t wait for the answers…I’ve been waiting all week 😅

  50. 150

    JAMIE, it’s good to hear from you. Of course, I’m very glad you’re enjoying this gift to all who care about empaths, or celebrities, or both.

    Interesting that you’ve been waiting all week for the answers, because nearly every day I’ve given several, having researched three nominees. And also researched them over at the Enlightenment Life List. Might I recommend that you read the research I manage to provide in the time available?

  51. 151
    Oscar Manuel says:

    Probably I speak for a lot of Blog-Buddies when I thank you for your work with this latest, as you put it, “gift to all who care about empaths, or celebrities, or both.”

    I have been following the steady flow of your research here. To me, it’s both remarkable and revealing. Also, I never take for granted the huge amount of superb work that you make available to people like me for free.

  52. 152
  53. 153
    Liane says:

    Thank you for researching Larry Bird, Kit Harington, and Maggie Smith.

    I’m happy to hear about Maggie Smith having an empath gift. Proof that I’m simply lucky at guessing because I certainly couldn’t tell on surface level. I believe I’ll nominate her for the Spiritual Enlightenment Life List… which is not to say that I believe that just because she’s an empath she’s in enlightenment.

  54. 154
    Liane says:

    Oops. No need for me to nominate Maggie Smith, that’s already been taken care of. Thanks Rose!

  55. 155

    You’re welcome, LIANE. Doing my reasonable best!

  56. 156

    TRICIA, thank you for nominating comedian Maria Bamford in your Comment #12. I don’t understand why being open about one’s struggles with mental illness would have anything to do with being an empath. So here’s a gentle reminder before I pursue this nomination.

    An empath has at least one significant gift for directly experiencing (in consciousness) what it’s like to be another person.

  57. 157

    Here’s a photo of Maria Bamford.

    Now researching her, sadly I cannot give her any score on my Sensitivity Scale. Clearly, from my research, Ms. Bamford does indeed have a significant mental health problem. As such, she’s not an empath.

  58. 158

    That doesn’t make her any less good as a person, or as a comedian. But people with non-standard types of consciousness for a human being are not empaths.

    They’re exploring something different in life. Having a different journey.

  59. 159

    To be clear, sometimes people take psychiatric medication to help their brain chemistry work better. In which case, they do wind up having standard types of consciousness for a human being. Some are empaths. Some are even on my Spiritual Enlightenment List.

  60. 160

    By contrast, people who don’t take appropriately prescribed psychiatric medication; people who can’t be helped by psychiatric medication; autistic persons (anywhere on the spectrum); people who are developmentally delayed, and others whose auras do not function in ways that this aura reader finds researchable… are not empaths.

  61. 161

    JNANA, thank you for your nomination in Comment #15 of author Loung Ung.

    She scores 2 on my Sensitivity Scale that goes up to 20. Definitely not an empath. However, she does have a great deal of sex appeal, which could serve her well as a writer (and person).

  62. 162

    JNANA, thanks for your nomination of Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati and also that photo link you thoughtfully supplied, in Comments #16-17.

    This Swami scores 3 our of 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Definitely not an empath, and surprising ambitious for a renunciate, JNANA.

  63. 163

    LEO WATTS, thank you for nominating notable Jalen Brunson, the pro basketball player, in your Comment #20.

    Having a “subtle intensity,” as you described it… does make him an intriguing nominee for this Celebrity Empath Contest.

  64. 164

    Yes, Jalen Brunson scores 20 out of a possible 20 on my Sensitivity Scale.

    Definitely an empath. Well done, LEO.

  65. 165

    Next, LEO, let’s explore your nomination in Comment #21 of J Balvin, by now a world famous reggaeton singer. Recently he was featured during the Superbowl halftime show.

    Score him a 3 out of 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Not an empath.

  66. 166
    Jnana says:

    Makes sense that Loung Ung is not an empath given what she was able to withstand to ensure her survival. Interesting that sex appeal gets a mention. Had she remained in her native Cambodia, I wonder if this would be so. Going by her sister (who never left Cambodia) I’m guessing no.

    At least she’s directing her gains towards rebuilding her country. Even so, I lament the fact that this has to be the way

  67. 167
    Jnana says:

    Swami Niranjan, personally ambitious? Tut, tut. Perhaps the fact that he entered the ashram at age 4 and was groomed to take over the mission has something to do with it.

    Sensitivity 2? Reminds me of the feeling of coldness interactions with some swamis have left me. None of them empaths, for sure.

  68. 168

    JNANA, isn’t that something, being put into an ashram at age four? Saying that the swami “entered” omits the responsibility of the adults who put him there. Seems to this person NOT from Asia (like as you are).

    Why would a child of that age be in a position to choose the lifestyle of a celebate or renunciate? Ouch!

  69. 169

    I do think it’s important to weigh in on the idea in 167, JNANA, equating a person’s degree of sensitivity with leaving you cold.

    Blog-Buddies, please don’t go there, because this simply isn’t true.

  70. 170

    For years I’ve researched the sensitivity of top actors and actresses in America. The majority of the most beloved ones score 1 or 2 out of 20 on the Sensitivity Scale.

    Sensitivity isn’t something you can change. It’s more like how your fingernails happen to grow, for heaven’s sake.

  71. 171

    I, too, can remember a meeting with a swami who left me cold. I met with him because he was part of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s entourage.

    Swamis are renunciates, right, JNANA? If put in the position of having to teach or talk to non-renunciates, they can be very awkward. Understandably so.

  72. 172

    As householders, people like us are invited to care about other people. To see the good in them. To take an interest.

    By contrast, a renunciate can be a lovely person. (I’ve known several.) But their joy begins when alone, with eyes closed, letting go of human life.

  73. 173

    Thus, caring about people at all is totally optional for a renunciate.

    Please don’t use this Sensitivity Scale I’ve developed to mean anything more than personal endowment of sensitivity for the lifetime. Any score from 1-20 can be part of a magnificent life. Up to us, and our use of free will, right?

  74. 174

    AVID READER, thank you for your nomination of former President Bill Clinton in your Comment #22.

    He is definitely an empath, scoring 20 out of 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Here’s a photo of him while president, useful for aura reading research.

  75. 175

    Unfortunately, ever since his wife Hillary did not win the election for president, Bill Clinton’s aura has suggested to me that he isn’t clear mentally.

    I can’t tell which kind of aging-related or other ailment is fuzzing up his once so-brilliant thinking process, but I have removed him from my Spiritual Enlightenment List for that reason.

  76. 176

    AmandaR, thank you for your nomination (in Comment #23) of ig-influencer Ali Michael.

    Hey, I don’t even know what an “ig-influencer” is, but I can research him related to being an empath, as promised. I’ll use this photo.

  77. 177

    Correction: Ali Michael is a woman, a model. And the most notable thing about her aura is the extreme hunger that screams out of her Root Chakra databanks. Perhaps as part of her influencing?

  78. 178

    Anyway, Michael scores 3 out of 20 possible points on my Sensitivity Scale.

    Might I suggest? Let’s not confuse the quality of vulnerability through self-starvation with sensitivity.

  79. 179

    ENGINEER JESSE, thank you for your nomination — in your Comment #26 — of Steve Irwin, the Australian zookeeper/ animal activist.

    Wow, JESSE, it was surprisingly difficult to find a photograph of him for aura reading purposes. One where he wasn’t touching an animal, or hugging his family. Sweet man! Anyway, I did eventually find this picture of Steve Irwin.

  80. 180

    Steve Irwin scores 20 out of a possible 20 on my Sensitivity Scale.

    Definitely an empath!

  81. 181
    Leo Watts says:

    I love Steve Irwin! Great nomination Jesse 🙂

    Cool that he was an empath!

  82. 182
    An Avid Reader says:

    Hi Rose, thank you for researching Bill Clinton. I am not surprised to learn that Bill Clinton is an empath given his ability to connect with people. I am so sorry to hear he is not currently doing well!

    Thank you for doing this!

  83. 183
    Jnana says:

    Thank you for your comments 168 to 173. It is good to know that that a magnificent life is a possibility for all regardless.

  84. 184
    Jnana says:

    And Swami Niranjan did enter the ashram. He pretty much insisted on it even at that tender age.

  85. 185

    You’re welcome, JNANA.

    It’s so important to know about the huge possibilities awaiting us daily for… not just anything… but personal growth and spiritual awakening!

  86. 186

    Fascinating about that Comment #184. In Swami Niranjan’s culture, his insistence upon entering that ashram might be like, in American culture, a four-year-old who tells parents, “I’m going to be a star. A big movie star.”

    Desire is one thing. But karma is another.

  87. 187

    As noted in your nomination of this Swami, I’d already researched the man who became his guru. Not in Enlightenment.

    And the odds of attaining Enlightenment weren’t that high, even if the guru WAS in Enlightenment. Since he began his monastic training during the Age of Faith. (In the Age of Awakening, more people are likely to be able to move into Enlightenment, given effective assistance on their paths.)

  88. 188

    How Swami Niranjan’s parents may have rejoiced! Perhaps along the lines of, “He has a strong spiritual calling. That means he will reach Enlightenment.”

    But a strong “calling” to do something before the age of 28? What does that really mean?

  89. 189

    For a monk, strong desire doesn’t mean he will attain Enlightenment.

    No more than, for the little girl singing into a hairbrush and imagining herself a big star… that her dream will come true.

  90. 190

    Instead, seems to me, that strong calling means some meant-to-be karma. That incarnated soul is going to strive hard for something, for a while at least.

    Strive and learn something. But not necessarily reach a statistically unlikely goal.

  91. 191

    Any thoughts there, JNANA?

  92. 192
    Jnana says:

    Thoughts?? He is pulled to the ashram. His teacher is already expecting him. So the story goes.

    And yet, it is only karma being served. No happily ever after in enlightenment.

  93. 193

    JNANA, thanks for those thoughts.

    Now I learn there’s a story, and his guru is already expecting him?

  94. 194

    To put it as respectfully as possible, I’m highly skeptical.

    For one thing: This guru, according to research I’ve done here at the Spiritual Enlightenment List, wasn’t in Enlightenment. How was there going to be a happily ever after in Enlightenment?

  95. 195

    If any of you Blog-Buddies would like to read a more credible story of a guru who was in Enlightenment, and a student who legitimately made a choice while still young (but not a preschooler), I recommend “Autobiography of a Yogi.”

    ENGINEER JESSE, only now am I finding your earlier nomination for this Flash Contest. Thanks for your Comment #25, nominating Marcul Lemonis of the TV show “The Profit.”

    You raise an interesting point. He seems to “empathize.” Does that have anything do with being an empath?

  97. 197

    In my experience so far, JESSE, “empathizing” has no relationship whatsoever to whether a person is an empath. Many an empath doesn’t seem to “empathize.” While many a non-empath does.

    Frankly, we could call “empathizing” a form of performance art. (I put the verb in quotes because, like “socialize,” I consider it a hideous word. Speaking as an English major and writer, not an Empath Empowerment ® Coach. 😉 )

    JESSE, I’ll use this photo for research. Marcul shows a very sweet smile, to be sure.

    Happy news. According to my research, Marcul scores 20 out of 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. He IS an empath. Plus, he also is IN Enlightenment.

    ENGINEER JESSE, thanks also for your nomination of Fred Rogers, the children’s television hero. Your Comment #27! The late TV star has already been researched for my Spiritual Enlightenment List. (Comment #830)

    So I’ll just research him here as a empath, using this photo.

  100. 200

    Oh yes indeed, Fred Rogers scores 20 out of 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Definitely an empath.
