Empathery – Because Being An Empath Is An Art

Embrace All That You Are

Remember that time when you hid your fantastical, vibrant light in order to fit in? Or, that time you blended into the background so as not to draw attention to yourself?  

We all had good reasons to hide our light, especially in childhood. Being different wasn’t always welcome or understood. It wasn’t always safe.

But, things are changing. Energy is shifting. You are changing and shifting.

Empathery is all about embracing your whole self as the magnificent, empathic being that you are. To do that, you have to acknowledge ALL you are capable of being as an empath. And, to do that you have to know what the possibilities are.

Which is tough, because you, my friend, are a massively complex biocomputer. You can recognize millions of varying energetic inputs, and you can sense this energy in a heartbeat.

Most of these perceptions occur on the subconscious level. We don’t even know they happened. Maybe, we aren’t even aware that the perceptions exist.

But, what we endeavor to do here is to bust our perceptions wide open, so you see what, how, and why you discern all these energetic details as an empath. Most of all, we aim to be fully plugged in, light shining brightly. 

We do this, so you not only gain back any of your power lost to overwhelm, but you also see your true self.

Self awareness is a powerful thing! And, you are an impressively powerful soul.

Master Your Coding

Nevertheless, you were sent to this place at this time with a flood of abilities, but no operating manual. No instructions. Yea, that happened. So, it’s easy to feel like you’re drowning in these constant waves of energy that keep finding you. How are you suppose to know what to do with all this power? 

Just like a violinist or a tennis player or a rocket scientist, you came into this life with raw ability. You probably needed your empathic abilities to survive your childhood, but what do you do with these abilities now? How does all this energetic sensitivity fit into an orderly adult life?

Empathery is all about mastering the coding of your intricate biocomputer. Sometimes that can be thorny and tricky and just plain hard, but knowing who you are and all that you are capable of is the key to everything. Seriously, everything.

Once you learn how to program and operate your exquisite empathic abilities, you can realize your full potential as an empath. 

Note for those with Perfectionist Tendencies

As a card-carrying member of this club, I feel qualified to speak to the perfectionists.

When I say “full potential” it isn’t a report card someone else devised to grade your accomplishments. There’s no judgement or critique implied. Your full potential unfurls at the full capacity of your glorious being. All that you truly are. All that you are capable of being in this time and place.

This means understanding and accepting that all the abilities you’ve been given are perfect for the person you are in this life.

All. Of. Them.

You Are Not Alone

In an effort to support you in your empathery, we break things down in this way:

1. That thing you are experiencing – there’s a name for it.

2. Here’s how that thing works.

3. Other people experience the same thing.

4. Although you will find similarities with other empaths, your experience will still be unique.

Whatever that thing is for you, you are not alone. We are here to embrace and celebrate our collective weirdness. You are part of a large community that is ever expanding.


And, we are all on similar weird adventure.

We'll Work on This Together

Empathery is learned. And, then practiced. A lot. In fact, empathery isn’t just an art, it’s a fine art.

Empathery will never fit comfortably on the empath until it is learned, understood, and mastered. And, that’s “mastered” in an ever evolving and fluid world which is…challenging!

So, if you find yourself overwhelmed by your empathic abilities, welcome to the club.

Come on in. Please, sit by me.

We have so much to talk about and learn together.

Are you ready?

This is gonna be fun.
