Like Star Trek’s ship counselor, Deanna Troi in the video above, I have been providing empathic care and presence for, literally, all my life. Skillfully, the past ten years.
I have claimed and developed my clairsentience, connected my dots, and this is what they look like all put together: I am here to cultivate deeper and more empathic connections among all of life. My long-time efforts, interests and investments have been devoted to this purpose, and are now creating:
So, this is where my wandering and wondering has led me thus far. I like it. And there’s so much more brewing… I mean big, tasty alchemical delights! Stay tuned by “Liking” the Empathic Writer Facebook Page. Add your voice and vision, and co-create a more empathic culture with us!
With heartfelt love,
Is it something we pull out on special occasions, but don’t really bother with for everyday use?
It often feels like that. Undivided attention is handled like an exotic resource not to be wasted on regular life. We have become such extreme multi-taskers… always with some sort of stimulating screen in front of us. How can an earnest heart compete with that?
I’ve mentioned before here and here my belief that lavish listening is a simple way to improve a person’s mood (both speaker and listener), and it can set loose a vision like nobody’s business. People sound surprised (or confused?) when they ask me what my weekly talk show is about and I say, “the practice of deep listening.”
But there are some to whom it doesn’t sound strange at all. Last Friday, I was thrilled to get calls from others who see the value of cultivating deeper communication — with self, Creator, each other and all of Nature.

High: The guided meditation that starts at 17-minutes. (Some have said it’s a tear-jerker.)
Low: My connection was dropped about 32-minutes into the show, and a caller was left hanging on-air and in-limbo for a minute or two until I could reconnect. But how fortunate for me that this caller was familiar with the technological quirks of BlogTalkRadio/Skype, and she graciously waited. Her name is Lisa Dollar, and she’s up to beautiful work in the world.
Have you ever tried to shake hands with someone who gave you, in return, a weak, limp palm? Like they couldn’t really be bothered with the effort it would take to flex their finger muscles strongly enough to give you a real grip?
This blog is an effort to shake your hand.
Please, flex your finger-muscles strongly enough to:
Did you know that strong hand-shakes are often preludes to hugs? And who couldn’t use a few more hugs?
The first three stages of visionary creation.
This is a follow-up to my turtle-post about sticking your neck out.
I am a communicator. I love words. And lots of times, they love me, too.
One kind of communication (writing) is a lot less scary than another kind (speaking). You may have heard the statistic that public speaking is ranked as people’s #1 fear? Even trumping death.
You know what scares me even more than public speaking and death?
Knowing what I want, and not reaching for it. With gusto. (What, exactly, am I waiting for?) Malcolm S. Forbes said:
“The biggest mistake people make in life
is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.”
I agree. Hence this coming out announcement. With a request.
Your help is so appreciated! This turtle thanks you ;-)
“Don’t be so sensitive.”
If you are an HSP, that statement is probably one of the most self-negating things you can possibly hear. And I bet you hear it a lot more than you’d care to. Seeing how we live in a largely insensitive world.
That being the case, the S-word has taken on a lot of misplaced baggage. It’s been wrongly associated with undesirable terms like “weak” and “incapable.” So we’ve got some cleaning and clarifying to do. Some straightening of the social records that have become quite a mess, and that keep a “virtue” mistakenly classified as a “flaw.”
Q: What’s one way we can remove the pejorative sting from a word that describes our very core?
A: With a full embrace and radical re-claiming of the S-word.
Things like “rights” and “recognition” rarely float into the laps of those who deserve them. Usually they have to be insisted upon. This is what many sensitive writers and coaches — like Elaine Aron, Jenna Avery, Douglas Eby, Thomas Eldridge, Jenna Forrest, Jim Hallowes, Cliff Harwin, Barrie Jaeger, Grace Kerina, Marti Olsen Laney, Peter Messerschmidt, Rose Rosetree, Michael Smith, Jacquelyn Strickland, Tribe, Ane Weed, and Ted Zeff — have been working toward.
I’ve joined them, and have spent the past year working to leverage the neurological trait of high sensitivity. For the 20% of the world’s population who are born with this genetic trait, nerve-based sensitivity is still amazingly under-recognized and under-discussed.
So maybe we can start leaving bread-crumbs? The evangelical kind. Maybe we can create a lil’ cultural intrigue, and get conversations started. The unapologetic kind. About who you are. And how you are. Your presence makes the world a more enjoyable place to be in. Why not come clean about how you do that? How you bring forth those calm, healing, creative, compassionate, insightful, intuitive, delicate, refined, inventive, empathic qualities wherever you go.

Yogi Bhajan said that women are 16 times stronger than men…
…but that our self-esteem is 16 times weaker.
The idea of that is interesting to me. And is also relevant to Sensitives whose very presence can transform a harsh reality into one more beautiful and peace-filled. But we often lack the decisive will to do so.
Too often, we seek permission outside of ourselves to shine at our brightest levels. To radiate our luminous strength just because the expression of that strength looks and feels different from the majority. But it is that (sensitively-informed) difference that the world thirsts for. It is that (sensitively-empowered) difference that we are equipped to bring forth like no one else can do.
Those of us who live with heightened awareness, perception and sensitivity are just two steps away from living lives of purpose, power and ecstasy:
On Friday, January 15th, 2010 Santari Green and I will open a gateway for six Sensitives ready to access and activate this splendid way of living.
