We are currently between eclipses (with the last solar eclipse being on March 3rd and the next one approaching on March 23rd.) Everyone can feel this powerful and intense energy—but of course in particular, empaths do! Not only do we empaths feel the universal vibration—but we feel our neighbor’s vibration too. Eclipses bring long series of experience to a head or to birth, and knock open the doors to transformation with one, cool bang. The reason I’m discussing eclipses is because they manifest powerful energy, which of course is always on some level (usually in the beginning stages) experienced as painful energy. And we can use our empathic intelligence to transmute this energy, in order to liberate ourselves and improve the global spiritual environment in one fell swoop. This past weekend I channeled some information specifically about this, and the role of pain in our work as energy alchemists. I have no doubt that many of you will experience a familiarity with these words, as I believe empaths all over the world are beginning to channel similar messages at this time. Let this post be your validation.
For our purposes, let’s understand pain and anxiety to be of the same material. Pain is the notion of suffering that overtakes us, and anxiety is the similar notion of worry, which then translates into pain. Pain speaks to us in a quiet and desperate voice, which tells us from between the shadows in which it hides, that we only need to escape, in order to be liberated. Pain is a liar, living in our hearts. He stabs at the walls of our insides and threatens us in the night. Then he wipes us down with wallowing, wet rags and bellows for our torment. He seduces us with lies that he holds before us, like bright and colorful balloons. He tells us, “Take these and go away—run away from me and hide, and you will never see me again.” And like little children, we do just that. And like little children, we then run straight into his arms.
What goes wrong here? Hiding is the most certain expression of fear, and fear is the favorite child of pain. Fear takes our hand, like a little friend, and leads us straight to his father—pain. Now, there is no reason to blame ourselves for this. But as empaths, we are so empowered when we let our deeply feeling eye, unfold in the heavy truth of pain. We must begin to see, that this approach to pain is so universally embedded throughout our collective consciousness, that it courses throughout the veins of society now. And this world depends on the most sensitive ones, the ones whom the world at times mistakes for the weakest ones, to clear the energetic cobwebs that hold it in these traps.
You see, the thing about that is this: empaths themselves have been told that this approach to pain (running and hiding) is how they must deal with the effects of their gifts. Empaths are told to shield themselves. And in doing so, while it would appear we are spared, in the end we find ourselves under the grip of darkness and isolation. We are suffocated—and we find ourselves once more, in the dark arms of pain.
The Illusion of Separation
I have discussed this point with you before. But let me tell you what I heard (through channeling) on this subject matter over the weekend. There is no difference between the external experience and the internal one. The perception of this distinction is a product of the illusion of separation, wherein we on the concrete plane see the world as being disconnected from ourselves, and see others as occupying individual and separate spaces of existence. Now, while in the physical world one could argue that this perception is true, on a greater level of consciousness it dissolves into an illusion, and from this greater level, we can see it as that. But on the concrete level, when we believe and operate within the context of the illusion of separation, we see the condition of the external world, particularly when it seems negative, as some sort of punishment. In truth all is one, and the external and internal reflect through and into one another, blending infinitely in an ongoing sea of beingness. In this way, although you carry on your individual life, you are forever woven into everything, and forever a mirror of the external mirror, which you yourself are a mirror to, and so on. This is a quantum and infinite sort of reflecting that rationality cannot seize. However, your soul can know it instantly. And as your soul begins to let you know what it knows, know that when you see pain in the external, it belongs to you, and is a reflection of you—while you are a reflection of it. When we choose to hide and close ourselves away, we only continue this dance—although from the confines of our hiding spaces, the external becomes pure darkness, reflecting a new level of void into us.
How do we escape the void? To put it most simply: we must stop escaping. It is through not only mere acceptance, but love of pain that we find peace and healing. We know this already, as time and experience have taught us that in dealing with our pain, hiding never works. We know that acceptance moves us beyond the terror of resistance. We know that once we no longer resist, we find that nothing resists us—we find that the battle all along, as much as it seemed to be against this or that, was really only ever against ourselves.
When we consider what this means in terms of our roles in the world as empaths, we may at first feel intimidated. How are we supposed to love all of the pain and anguish we encounter from others in everyday life, when we sometimes can’t even love our own? If you are asking this question, know that I can relate to you. And yet, know also, that you and I together, are using our empathic vision to find our way—and we are getting somewhere. For although we think of love as a willingness, a trust and a gift which is presented to the deserving, love is not nearly as complicated as all that. Love is a vibration, devoid of rationale and willingness—it is an automatic and perpetual stream of consciousness that overwhelms these details. The pain and anguish we encounter in everyday life will transmute from darkness to light, from loathing to love, if it only passes through the hands of our empathic filter. This weekend I was shown what this empathic filter is, and what it appears like.
Now, we empaths are used to the idea of putting bubbles and shields around our auras and bodies. These serve to confine us. The empathic filter however, rather than blocking us from anything, transmutes whatever we encounter—transforms the impurities in the psychic air that surrounds us. The empathic filter goes around our bodies, just like an energetic shield. But the empathic filter traffics the pure divine energy of love. This love is not personally sourced—it draws instead from the infinite wave of love that composes and compels this mysterious universe.
Now, the question is, how do you make your own? It is very simple empaths, you channel it into being. All empaths are natural channels. Channeling is a matter of being connected to—and there is no stronger hookup than that of empathic connection. Conceive in your mind now, this eternal love—this divine source. Now draw it into your being with your breath. When you exhale, let it flow from your being and all around you. As you exhale, notice that you do not lose any of this love, for its sourced from an eternal place. The more you exhale (give) the more you inhale (receive) and vice versa. Continue to breathe in and out—this energy of love. And do not stop, at least do not stop on purpose. The idea is to match the rhythms of oxygen-breathing that are so natural to your physical body with the ever constant rhythms of love-breathing that are so natural to your spiritual body. Throughout the day, whenever you think of it, consciously reinforce the habit. You are developing your spiritual intelligence, and breathing life and health into your spiritual body. And you are becoming, every day, a more powerful energy alchemist.
I have so much more to share with you, empaths. Some upcoming posts will involve the following topics: overcoming anxiety through empathy; the purpose of empaths in the Age of Aquarius; how to tell if you are an empath; the purpose of the sociopath along the empath’s journey; and how to use your empathic intelligence to develop other spiritual abilities, such as clairvoyance. Of course, our main focus will continue to be energy alchemy and transmutation. Do any of these topics appeal to you, or is there something in particular you would like me to write about? Let me know in the comments section, or via the contact page. Until next time, empaths…

In my last post I shared with you that you are all energy alchemists and I told you that I would talk about how you can use your empathic intelligence to perform energy alchemy and transmutation in my next post. This is the subject of today’s post.
First of all, what is energy alchemy? According to what I have channeled, energy alchemy is essentially, the fulfillment of our empathic purpose. Contrary to popular belief, empaths are not born to absorb everybody’s shit for no reason, any more than we are born to go around like little walking eggs, who never crack out of the shell because we’re so afraid that if we do, we’ll be annihilated by the blazing sun of everyone’s feelings. We have a purpose. We are the spiritual trees of the world, cleaning the air so that every creature can breathe. And that task of cleaning is what I call “energy alchemy.”
Absorbing Too Much Energy? What if it’s Actually Not Enough?
Now, turning your natural empathic intelligence up all the way, in order to transmute energy from negative to positive, takes time. It takes time to explain and time to learn something like that. But I’m going to capture the nuts and bolts of it for you here. Today I’m going to talk about the foundational concept of energy alchemy, and that will give your highly sensitive empathic brain a lot to soak up.
The reason that we feel burdened and drained by energy, is because we’re trying to hold onto it, all on our own. But we really don’t have to go it alone: when you think about it, empaths have an entire universe they can connect themselves to at the drop of a hat. See, what we empaths do is we unconsciously attract extreme emotional experience. This is because we know, on a higher level of awareness, that we are supposed to be healing—so we go seek out who needs help. And then we just focus on the ones who needs us, one at a time. Naturally, when we see that people are loaded down we just start grabbing at what’s tugging on them…and then we carry the weight ourselves. Pretty soon, it’s like we’re wearing 500 19th century ball gowns, and it becomes impossible to move. We feel lethargic, drained—done. So the solution that is proposed to us, and that we sometimes even propose to ourselves, is that we should just stop absorbing anything—shield ourselves constantly, and settle for a life lived within the confines of an energetic safety-box. Hello, metaphysical claustrophobia. But we’re told that’s just the way it has to be. It’s for our own good, because we’re just too darn fragile. Right? Wrong. It isn’t that we’re absorbing too much energy, we’re not absorbing enough.
Think about it. Empaths have the ability to connect to energy at a high intensity—in other words, to become one with. What we mostly do with this ability, is become one with whoever needs our help—people who are bogged down by negative energy, right? And that’s not actually a bad idea—that’s the beauty of our healing instinct at work. The problem is that the only energy we’re becoming one with, or connecting to if you will, is this single person or that specific group of people, when we could potentially be connecting to the entire collective consciousness—the universe itself. You see, we empaths carry an immense power within us, and this is why we are so misunderstood, and this is also why it is sometimes so hard for us to know what to do with ourselves. We empaths possess the most infinite and ancient of virtues—the power to channel the vibration of total consciousness. This vibration of total consciousness, as most of you have probably experienced at times, is an eternal and mysterious, paradox intelligence. Some call it god, others might call it love—it has many names. Whatever you refer to it as, is a matter of your semantic preference. The point is that empaths are the ultimate channels—without even knowing it, we breathe and exist as portals to anything and everything. And when we don’t know it, we end up like untrained astronauts trying to fly a NASA spacecraft…can you say, “Houston we have feelings?” Luckily for us, we are living in what I’ve been calling the Age of the Healer, also known as the Age of Aquarius—an age in which the empathic purpose will be fulfilled—a concept I will discuss more in future posts. My point is, we empaths can channel the eternal mind of the universe, without even having to lift a finger. We can do it while we’re eating lunch or waiting in line at the supermarket—it’s that easy.
And this is a crucial step in acting as energy alchemists because, when we fully awaken our channel to the highest vibration of consciousness, we not only connect ourselves to that power, but we connect any negative energy we encounter to that power—and that power will transform and transmute whatever it touches, into love. You’ve heard the quote by Aristotle, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” We can understand this observation in terms of the universe. These little lives we experience as individuals, are just that—parts. And in these little roles, all added up, one on top of the other, it’s just chaos and suffering. We look at each other, and the totality of the state of things here on earth, and we just feel overwhelmed. But the whole itself, is a vastness that is so beyond the sum. The whole is an infinite mechanism, incapable of being summed up. Empathic intelligence is the gift through which we channel the vibration of this whole, greater than the sum of its parts. Through this portal within us, the energy of the world is reborn—transmuted.
So the question now is, how is this done? How do you do this? I’m going to get to the heart of this in an upcoming post, and in the form of a video which I will post in the coming weeks. Knowing how to activate the purpose of your empathic intelligence will be a big piece in the puzzle of mastering your gifts. Beyond the knowing, is the self-acceptance that empaths often struggle with. When you have a purpose this big, it can be a little intimidating. Not to mention the heavy dose of fear-based programming which you as an empath have been force fed. How do you seamlessly regurgitate that? How do you really come to realize, and embrace yourself, so that your truth as an empath will be expressed in this lifetime? And if your natural inclination as an empath is to attract extreme emotional experience, then how do you use what you do understand about energy alchemy on an everyday basis, in your routine interactions with others—how can you witness a liberation in them and in yourself, without really having to lift a finger? These topics and others will be the subject of my upcoming posts and videos. There is so much to learn and share together, empaths, and we have only just begun.
