When we hear the word empathy, we usually associate it with a behavior such as being compassionate, sympathetic, kind, caring, warm-hearted, and helpful. Yet, the true definition of empathy is connection. Empathy is a connection that transcends the limitations of the human mind and the body. Consequently, it connects us to all that exists. I guess we could say that the hidden gift of empathy is that it is our energetic lifeline-the lifeline that connects our mind and body to our soul, and connects our soul to other souls, and connects all souls to the universe. In fact, empathy is the vibrational nature of the universe. It's what makes it possible for us to experience all that we do.
Empathy is a multidimensional way of interacting, communicating, and being. It utilizes the five physical senses, but is not limited by them. Empathy expands and enhances the observations, perceptions, and information offered by the physical senses. For example, in the verbal communication process empathy senses the words spoken, and is keenly aware of the tones attached to the words. If empathy deems the words are critical, and the tones are loud or forceful, empathy will energetically create a bandwidth of static. This bandwidth of static serves as a buffer to change the nature of what is heard.
Empathy plays an important role in how we move from our conditioned sense of belonging into the energy of true belonging. Because of its vibrational nature, empathy uses our body and gut to tell us when we aren't being true to who we are. It tells us when we're feeling compromised. When we're being nice and trying to please. It tells us when we're trying to fit in, and it tells us when we don't fit in. Empathy is the origin of our empathic abilities. In fact, empathy and intuition are inseparable. Therefore, it's our Empathic Intuition that provides the ultimate recognition of exactly where we are at any given moment.

The Saturday Soul Gathering is held the first Saturday of each month at the Ritberger Learning Center, in Cameron Park, CA. While each gathering is designed as a standalone event, the information shared will set the intention for succeeding gatherings. The gatherings are lecture and experiential in nature, so bring a journal that you can dedicate specifically to capturing the wisdom held within your soul.
If you are interested in understanding more about empathy, learning more about what it means to be empathic, and discovering your empathic abilities. you won't want to miss this Saturday Soul Gathering. I look forward to teaching you how to not let others emotional suffering, hurts, and traumas become yours.
Light & Love,
