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!

    They both lived such difficult and courageous lives. They were both tremendous leaders. Not only in public life, but in consciousness.

  2. 302
    Janice says:

    To me they both created legends about how to grow.

  3. 303
    Janice says:

    Rose, in comment 229 you write about Bobby Kennedy: “JANICE, considering that Bobby Kennedy was an empath — and at a time when Empath Empowerment skills weren’t available — does help make it more understandable how he waffled about whether or not to become a presidential candidate.”

  4. 304
    Janice says:

    Could you explain why being an empath helps to explain the waffling?

  5. 305

    JANICE, I sure will… later, after fulfilling more of my Energy Spirituality obligations (and joys) for today.

    Meanwhile, big thanks for your comments here. Also big thanks to you, EMILY TURNER! SIMON! And OSCAR MANUEL! You’re understanding that Energy Spirituality is unique in the world today, and a very Age of Awakening way for people to use their full potential.

  6. 306

    You could also tell that I have a lot of respect for today’s mental health professionals. I’m not in competition with them, nor am I pretending to be one of them.

    There’s ample room for us all. Clients decide for themselves what helps them most.

  7. 307

    JANICE, thanks so much for all your recent comments.

    Now, to answer the excellent question in your Comments #303-304: Bobby Kennedy was an UNSKILLED empath. All unskilled empaths are less effective than non-empaths. (Although, as I’ve noted before, SKILLED empaths are more effective than non-empaths.)

  8. 308

    Now, it’s very individual how an unskilled empath shows the inner wear-and-tear. Bobby Kennedy was well known to go back and forth over when to run for president. So this is the connection I’m making.

    Most presidential candidates haven’t been empaths. (Exceptions who come to mind are Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.)

  9. 309

    Could be, since Kennedy was unskilled as an empath, sometimes his sense of self wasn’t very strong. (Which is one among many ways that unskilled empaths can suffer.)

    It’s not hard to hypothesize that certain people would tell him to run, and influence him strongly. While others would tell him not to run, and they also would influence him strongly. You get the idea.

    Holly says:

    Thank you, Rose and everyone, for this blog post and comments.

  11. 311
    Holly says:

    This is the first time I have seen empathetic and compassionate defined so clearly.

    I haven’t seen anyone make that distinction.

  12. 312
    Holly says:

    Have we researched anyone who is between 6-19 on the Sensitivity Scale? Or is the difference between 5 and 20 a numerical illustration of the difference in degree of sensitivity?

  13. 313
    Holly says:

    Do people in Extreme Spiritual Addiction count as having normal mental capacity?

    Extreme Spiritual Addiction is a consciousness lifestyle. However, Energy Spirituality cannot help them.

  14. 314

    HOLLY, thanks for all you’ve pointed out. I guess you’re right.

    I can’t recall reading elsewhere about the differences between compassion and empathizing. Glad that comments here have continued to pull knowledge out of this teacher.

  15. 315

    Regarding your question in Comments #312, there are no scores for 6-19. And the reason you gave, HOLLY, strikes me as just the thing.

    Thank you.

  16. 316

    Regarding your Comment #313, I agree with a point you made. Energy Spirituality cannot any longer help people in Extreme Spiritual Addiction.

    And their consciousness is so distortedly different from normal human functioning, I cannot research them for the Sensitivity Scale.

  17. 317

    About this, “Extreme Spiritual Addiction is a consciousness lifestyle. However, Energy Spirituality cannot help [people with the consciousness lifestyle of Extreme Spiritual Addiction].” Well, true.

    We could say, this particular consciousness lifestyle is the exception that proves the rule.

  18. 318

    All other consciousness lifestyles — like those you can read about in this article — are negotiable.

    Unfortunately, once somebody arrives at Extreme Spiritual Addiction, it is a point of no return.

  19. 319

    Back to researching nominees, Аna Kraš was proposed by AmandaR because, “She seems to have something very very sensitive about her.” I love the humanity in that reason for thinking that someone might be an empath.

    Thank you for that, AmandaR.

  20. 320

    In case you other Blog-Buddies are wondering also (as I was), Ms. Kras’s claim to fame is work in photography.

    Actually, Kras scores 1 out of a possible 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. However, she’s got a lot of rage, independence, spunk and bitterness in her chakra databanks. I can see how, with Stage 1 Energetic Literacy, some people might equate that with sensitivity!

  21. 321

    KATHLEEN, in Comment #46, nominates Hozier, a musician. And I think this is another great reason to nominate somebody for this contest: ” I really enjoy his music, and would like to know more about him.”

    If you’re an empath, it’s natural to think or hope that other people you like are also empaths!

  22. 322

    According to my research, Hozier scores 20 out of a possible 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Yes, he’s an empath, KATHLEEN.

    Another reason for feeling drawn to him. Beneath his beard an experienced face reader can see a philtrum at maximum definition, plus the entire philtrum area is strongly protruding away from his face… All suggesting rather exceptional sex appeal and interest in sex. This sort of thing can add greatly to a performer’s allure.

  23. 323

    Next up is CURIOUS LURKER’S nomination Comment #47 of Jiddu Krishnamurti, described as a “New Age celebrity.”

    As a point of information, long before the New Age Years (1080- 12/21/12), Krishnamurti was revered as an Enlightenment teacher.

  24. 324

    He scores a 2 out of a possible 20 on my Sensitivity Scale. Not very sensitive at all.

    The confusion is understandable, since may people feel something with Stage 1 Energetic Literacy when they encounter somebody in Enlightenment. And it’s easy to equate that special “something” with other things the person likes. In your case, CURIOUS LURKER, that evidently includes being an empath. 😉

  25. 325

    Next possible empath was proposed by KATHLEEN, in Comment #52: Author Elif Batuman.

    KATHLEEN wrote that Batuman’s writing always seemed nuanced and sensitive to me. What an excellent basis for a nomination!

  26. 326

    Unfortunately I cannot easily research whether or not she’s an empath, since… at the time of the best photo I found… sadly, she’s in Extreme Spiritual Addiction. I’m just not motivated, KATHLEEN to find earlier photos of her, sigh!

    That consciousness lifestyle could be a recent thing. I was researching the author from this photo. Taken in 2017.

  27. 327

    At Comment #54, HELEN88 has nominated Turid Rugass, a dog training celebrity with an impressive understanding of dogs and their subtle signals. She has a unique perspective that is very considerate of dogs and how sensitive they are.

    Sounds like a great person, regardless of what we find about sensitivity, HELEN!

  28. 328

    Wow, from her photo, Turid looks just delightful! However, that’s just Stage 1 Energetic Literacy.

    Here goes some proper research!

  29. 329

    Turid Rugass has many empath gifts, definitely scoring 20 out of a possible 20 points on the Sensitivity Scale.

    Well nominated, HELEN88!

  30. 330

    Another nomination from you, HELEN88, is of broadcaster and natural historian David Attenborough. In Comment #55 you noted, “He has a special appreciation for nature that perhaps he gained from being an empath.”

    Hey, you’re 2 for 2, HELEN. Attenborough scores 20 out of a possible 20 points on the Sensitivity Scale. Definitely an empath!

  31. 331
    Kathleen says:

    Thank you Rose for the research. Sad to hear about Elif Batuman – I have previously enjoyed her work.

    But I had a good chuckle at your face reading of Hozier. So many ways to be drawn to somebody! 😉

  32. 332

    KATHLEEN, greetings to you from my tomorrow!

    About Elif, very likely she was doing well before moving into Extreme Spiritual Addiction. Consider Elizabeth Gilbert, whose work in “Eat, Pray, Love” was so loved by millions. And she made it onto my Enlightenment Life List once upon a time… only to wind up in that far less desirable consciousness lifestyle.

  33. 333

    And yes, I know what you mean about the chuckle about that philtrum excellence in the face reading extra that I included in the aura reading of Hozier.

    Yes indeed, so many ways to be drawn to somebody! And also so many skills for Deeper Perception, just at this blog. I could have spend HOURS on that dude. 😉

  34. 334
    Helen88 says:

    Wow Rose! That is so nice to know. I really admire both of the people I nominated.

    I just started another one of Turid’s books and she is so sensitive and sweet about the dogs it is very inspiring.

  35. 335
    Helen888 says:

    I have always appreciated Sir David’s narrations and knowing he is an empath adds to it.

    Thanks so much for that research!

  36. 336

    HELEN, you’re so welcome.

    I was inspired by researching the auras of both your nominees, and your appreciation here serves as the icing on the cake.

  37. 337

    Thanks, LINDSEY, for your Comments #57-58, nominating Shel Silverstein. Good question you posed, “how to find out if somebody is an empath.”

    That’s the educational point of this whole contest, dear LINDSEY. IMO, the way to find out is if you have the combo of skills for accurate Stage 3 Energetic Literacy + having received training as an Empath Coach. For which yours truly has paid the price, you know?

  38. 338

    LINDSEY, interesting nomination. Shel Silverstein scores 3 out of a possible 20 points on the Sensitivity Scale. That means moderate sensitivity, but nowhere close to being an empath.

    However, he IS in Enlightenment. Just not comfortable with it. Quite an example of somebody who could have used help from an Enlightenment Coach!

  39. 339

    And more fun, courtesy of LINDSEY. Thank you for your nomination of golfer Steve Ballesteros.

    He scores 20 out of a possible 20 on the Sensitivity Scale. Definitely an empath!

  40. 340

    Ann, thank you for your Comments #63-65, nominating my two favorites on “The Good Place.”

    First Ted Danson. Yes, as you noted, he IS in Enlightenment, according to my previous research. On top of all that, he scores 20 out of 20 on the Sensitivity Scale. Yep, Ted’s an empath.

  41. 341

    Second, Jameela Jamil. Yes, Jameela scores 20 out of 20 on the Sensitivity Scale; she’s an empath.

    And yes, like Ted Danson, her “acting teacher,” she’s also in Enlightenment. Sweet!

  42. 342

    Thanks also for Comment #67, ANN, nominating Michael Schur (the writer/producer of both “The Good Place” and “Parks and Recreation”).

    Sadly, ANN, I can’t research him from a current photo. Because currently he has landed in Extreme Spiritual Addiction. Sorry. In more ways than one.

  43. 343
    Oscar says:

    That’s interesting about Michael Schur, Rose. I was such a fan of The Good Place, I was sure I’d be a fan of his by extension. But when I looked him up his appearance really creeped me out.

    I also tried listening to him being interviewed, sure I would find his thoughts fascinating! But it was like nails on a chalkboard and I didn’t get more than a few minutes in. Now I know why!

  44. 344

    OSCAR, thank you for sharing. Everything you wrote in that first paragraph was true of me, too.

    Good old Stage 1 Energetic Literacy. It’s good in its surfacey way, as evidenced in both your paragraphs here. Like our good old human sense of taste. If food tastes strongly bad to us, we’d be wise to avoid eating it.

  45. 345

    JULIE, how delightful to have some nominations from you! In Comment # you nominated Carson McCullers.

    Specifically, you noted, “She wrote her characters with a perceptiveness and lack of judgement about race, disability, or gender. Seeing people just as people.”

  46. 346

    Although I can see your perspective for thinking that looks to you like “empath,” to me that sounds more like a reason to submit somebody for the Spiritual Enlightenment List.

    (Which, of course, I am doing for all Contest Nominees who haven’t previously been nominated at this blog’s most popular post.)

  47. 347

    Well, JULIE, Carson scores 1 out of a possible 20 on the Sensitivity Scale. Seems to me, in her significant personal suffering, she grabs onto objective reality HARD.

    Of course, she’s also wired with extreme ruggedness (versus sensitivity); perhaps it was chosen to help her endure some of the terrible things she would suffer at some point in her life.

  48. 348

    Next, JULIE, comes your fascinating nomination (in Comment #70) of F. Scott Fitzgerald, as an empath, since his descriptions of Jay Gatsby in “The Great Gatsby” seem very sensitively and beautifully described.

    Bingo! Fitzgerald scores 20 out of a possible 20 on the Sensitivity Scale. Defnitely an empath.

  49. 349
    Julie says:

    Thanks, Rose.

    Hooray about F. Scott Fitzgerald. This inspires me to reread some of those extra beautiful passages.

    This time knowing that he was empath.

  50. 350

    The possibility of being an empath is fascinating, Julie. And I also find it is extra fun to find out (not guess — but do reliable research) on who is really an empath.

  51. 351
    Oscar says:

    Fascinating about F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    It makes me think of the narrator of The Great Gatsby and how his sense of self was so confused!

  52. 352

    Indeed! Good observation, Oscar. Thank you. 🙂

  53. 353

    Now Comment #71 brings another fascinating nomination from JULIE. This time, it’s Julie Buntin, who writes very compassionately about the perils of drug abuse and losing a friend to drug abuse.

    According to my research, this other Julie scores 20 out of a possible 20 on the Sensitivity Scale. Definitely an empath!

  54. 354

    Next in the original sequence of comments requiring a response… Regarding your interesting certainty in Comment #73, AmandaR, regarding Ali being an empath, in your opinion… I’m really glad you shared your views. Since in Comment #178 at this post, I established that Ali isn’t an empath at all.

    However, indirectly you’ve provided an important teaching moment for all of us in the Energy Spirituality community.

  55. 355

    It is WONDERFUL and IMPORTANT that, personally, you’ve become a Skilled Empath, AmandaR.

    However, becoming a professional teacher of empaths is something quite different.

  56. 356

    For the sake of integrity with all 10 of the trademarked systems of Energy Spirituality — basically my life work — please do not hold yourself out as an authority on any of them. Which, meaning to do that or not, is exactly what you did here.

    You guessed and shared all your guesses with us. That isn’t what I asked any of you to do, is it? Because guessing like that leads to confusion. Empath Empowerment was developed by a professional, not a hobbyist. Let’s not start turning it into a Trivial Pursuit.

  57. 357

    If you’ve received benefits from studying systems like Energy Spirituality’s Empath Empowerment®, don’t disrespect or trivialize them in the future. Please.

    I’m not saying you meant to nibble away at the integrity of Empath Empowerment, but you did.

  58. 358

    Likewise, you didn’t help your personal integrity either, not in that instance.

    Even if it never occurred to you that there is such a thing as integrity in work… like what’s on offer here at my website! I hope that all of you reading understand, from now on (if not already), how you can either help or hinder a pioneering system like Empath Empowerment.

  59. 359

    Now that you know, I sure would appreciate if, in future, you choose to help.

  60. 360
    Ann says:

    Thanks, ROSE, for all of the time you have put into the many nominations.

    I know that I am learning a lot by reading all of the comments here!

  61. 361

    ANN, I’m learning too. Not that I usually share all of this in comments. But I was so touched by what you’ve written, I’d like to share an example of what I’ve learned, taking the time to do all this research.

    Last night, researching author Julie Buntin, with drug addiction in her past.

  62. 362

    Quite some triumph how she’s managed to be living more recently in Human-Based Spirituality.

    To this day, her aura carries enormous amounts of STUFF, related to the drug abuse times. I wish she were my client, because I believe I could help her a lot. But otherwise she’s just fighting every single day to live in recovery.

  63. 363

    So it sure woke up my heart of compassion, researching her aura even a bit.

    Really, unless we search into somebody’s aura, we have no idea how heroically they’re living just to NOT choose spiritual addiction (through drug use) or spiritual shutdown (often through fear, or else lack of imagination, etc.).

  64. 364

    Today is Super Tuesday. I’ll be voting today (always voting in elections, of course).

    I see a lot of the extremism in American politics — and in other countries (maybe predictably) as related to the very poor adjustment so many people are making to living in the Age of Awakening.

  65. 365

    Between constructively using our new vibrational freedom and also the impact of opportunistic astral beings… the latter being the cause of extreme spiritual addiction… many people are running scared.

  66. 366

    You know what? According to research I’ve done related to online workshops on The New Strong (including what’s under development). Go back just 100 years before the Shift into the Age of Awakening — or further back — and what will you find.

    Nearly everybody lived in Human-Based Spirituality. Locked in. (Unlike now.)

  67. 367

    By contrast, what’s happening now? A mere 10% of Americans are living with either Human-Based Spirituality, The New Strong, or one of today’s two versions of Enlightenment.

    Because now, living as a caring human being who pays attention to objective reality… isn’t inevitable but a choice.

  68. 368

    Thank so much to all you Blog-Buddies and blog lurkers who are in this number.

    You’re bringing a steadiness to our world that is making a huge difference. And you know what else? IMHO, you’re the future of the Age of Awakening in this world.

  69. 369

    Let’s not forget charming Rob Lowe, nominated by you, ANN in Comment #66. I’ve found a photo of Lowe from 2019.

    Robert Lowe scores 3 out of a possible 20 on the Sensitivity Scale. Moderately sensitive, then. Not an empath.

  70. 370

    And with that research… ta da! We’ve finally researched all nominees in the Celebrity Empaths Flash Contest.

    Thanks again — so much — to all who entered. I hope you join me in the pursuit of more knowledge to help Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs) and empaths… and those who love them and seek more understanding.

  71. 371
    Julie says:

    Heroic indeed (comments 362-3).

    And invisible to anyone not reading her aura.

  72. 372
    Julie says:

    I’m glad she’s fighting the good fight.

  73. 373

    Me too, JULIE. So much of the spiritual beauty of life hides behind the scenes.

    Like God, actually.

  74. 374
    Rebecca says:

    Thank you, Rose, for openly sharing Comments 361-368.

    These went straight to the mark for me!

  75. 375

    REBECCA, you’re welcome. As I think you know, I write at this blog from my heart to the hearts of you Blog-Buddies.

    And I share my unfolding knowledge with all of you, as we explore this great adventure together. Being the pioneers of the Age of Awakening seems hard sometimes, but it’s always an honor.
