"Being an Empath is a lot like being a cup and constantly being filled and refilled by external sources. The problems for most Empaths arise when they get closed-up and fail to release whatever is moving through them.
"Forgiveness can take some time and may have to be conscientiously repeated to achieve freedom. The process is one of “emptying the vessel”, similarly described in Buddhist philosophies."
I hear a lot of people talk about being an Empath. I have a difficult time with most labels – they sound like a semantics game with Psychic Sciences and other capacities inherent in all consciousness. That being said, I have also heard that many Empaths have difficult time with it because of how easily and intensely they can absorb energies around them. To be honest, ALL Healers are Empaths – it’s a necessary part of the gift. And, most Sensitives – like Psychics & Mediums – are also Empaths.
Cockroach Medicine, or What I learned Living in Florida with Giant Bugs
Cockroach is a warning messenger and harbinger of dis-ease. Cockroaches do not rebirth things as we see with the symbolism of other beetles - like scarab or dung beetles. They are akin to the third arm of karma, Destruction. Their place is to warn you that unless a change is made, their will be dis-ease & destruction.
I absolutely love the written word. Books, articles, essays, compilations, and collections; I love reading, imagining, and processing. I also enjoy listening and sharing. I enjoy the feel of passionate animation when I am sharing information of telling a story or teaching a technique or concept. And, I love listening to folks who share with that same fervent animation, a dynamic vibrancy that pours from the Speaker.

Attributed to Dr. Mikao Usui, first Master-Teacher of ReiKi System of Natural Healing
Reiki is a system of energetic healing with roots in Japanese energy work and Shinto Buddhism, although today's variable trainings have incorporated techniques from many other traditions of energy work. In practice, it is an effective tool for improving health and immunity. And, from a philosophical, or even spiritual, standpoint, Reiki practice is a valuable addition to any meditative and mindful repertoire.
The Earth is like a Mother - powerful, creative, the place from which life issues and that which nurtures life and sustains growth. Mother Earth is a wise teacher, instructing all of life in the virtues of balance and harmony, and teaching us about the apparent chaos of destruction which assists new growth, new beginnings, and facilitates change. She brings difficult lessons about the transient foundation of existence
