A slight change up from Empath Bullshit I used, "I've got a burr in my butt..." in a complete sentence and am kinda proud of it.
I met my new acupuncturist last week and when she finally thought she 'got' me, she said, "You're just too porous." She came to this conclusion when I described how being in the wind effects me, sometimes making me feel disoriented or disassociated all while knowing I'm neither of those things. She subsequently wanted to … Continue reading On Bubbles and Eggshells as an Empath’s Protection
The foundation of my philosophy on #empaths is this: we are not separate, individuated by the boundaries of our skin. There is no ‘psychic’ gift involved. It is a fully realized, physiological expression of our interconnected nature. We feel each other because we bleed through any borders we try to create. It is neither gift … Continue reading Facebook live recording
My darling empath, you cannot separate yourself from the fabric you are part of. There is no shield, bubble or cloak. The route of intentional blindness serves no one. Feel it, be in it, breathe through it. Sit quietly or holler, pray softly or yell with you heart behind it. If you think you can … Continue reading My Darling Empath

There are so many people describing the near-anxiety they have before telephone and video calls and the fatigue afterwards. If you are feeling preemptively tired before telephone calls and video meetings and fried after them, you want to get really clear on why. Is it your nervous system firing ahead of time, afraid everything is … Continue reading Corona-inspired Empath Tip #1: Telephone and Video Calls
Have you ever felt a piece of knowledge slide across your skin? Slippery, like that little something or other that won't come off the tip of your tongue? You know it's there but you can't quite touch it? Then, have you noticed the moments when it suddenly comes forth? As if it's long been settled … Continue reading Feeling Knowledge
My Dear Empath, You are not absorbing other people's emotions. You *may* be feeling them and, if you are, you are not expressing them--those emotions of other's or your own. You would be giving yourself a wondrous gift in letting the emotions flow! You are, however, receiving a shit-ton of other energy (that has nothing … Continue reading My Dear Empath
Dear Empath, The more you try to 'protect' yourself, the more harm you're causing yourself. Please stop and choose, instead, to pay attention to what is going on around and within you. Begin by asking 'is it mine?' and paying attention to how your brain and body respond.
Here's why Walmart, the empath and 'is it mine?' matter. Because it's all about you. Until it's not. Being an empath is about your connection with others and your capacities to use your own nature as a tool or superpower for good but before you can understand or build your tool box and put … Continue reading Lessons for the Empath from Walmart
