What is an empath? An empath is someone who feels what another person is feeling on an emotional level. Empaths place themselves in the shoes of others, feel the person’s emotions, and experience it as if it were their own.

Before, I go any further I want you to know that I am not an expert on this subject. I am only sharing my own personal experience and what I have read about empaths. From what I understand, there are several types of empaths, but I am only concentrating on an emotional empath.

An empath is born with heightened senses and these senses are increased if they experience childhood trauma. I can relate to this because of what I experienced in my childhood. By the age of five, I became very aware of my surrounds. I played well alone and was drawn to nature. There were energies around me that I could see and hear. I was very frightened because I did not understand what was happening.

I learned that as empaths grow older, they become more sensitive. They are introverts and extroverts, but most empaths are introverts. I am an extrovert when I choose to be. Spending time with family and friends is very enjoyable but the introvert part of me prefers to be alone.

When I was younger, I did not enjoy being alone. But when I started on the path of developing my spirituality and intuition, that changed. I may get out and socialize but I always leave early because I look forward to my solitude. Empaths need their time alone to recharge, contemplate, and commune with Spirit.

Because of a need to be alone, it could be difficult for an empath to maintain a relationship. As much as they may want a significant other in their life, the person would have to understand and accept who they are. Ideally, another empath would be a perfect match.

What can an empath do to protect their energy? I really struggle with this. When I pick up on others’ emotions that are sad, I cry. Once while at work, a co-worker was fired from her position. I held her hand as we talked and without warning, I became emotional and began to shed tears. I was so embarrassed. Another time, a co-worker shared with me her struggles, but things were beginning to turn around for her. Again, I cried because I felt joy that she was overcoming the years of struggle. What can I do to control this?

These are six tips I found on the internet that empaths can do to protect their energy:

  • Set healthy boundaries (I am better at that now.)
  • Try journaling (I journal.)
  • Start a mindfulness practice (I can try that.)
  • Try visualization (What do I visualize?}
  • Walk in nature (I love nature.)
  • Plan for emotional overload (What does that mean?)

I am trying to figure it out. How do I protect myself from taking on someone else’s emotions? If you are an empath and have figured it out, I welcome your feedback.

Love is Light & Light is Love

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” 

—Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Oslo, Norway, 1964

I believe this quote is appropriate for the times we are enduring. Right is stronger than evil. Light is stronger than darkness. Love shall overcome hate.

Love is Light and Light is Love


Mantras for Higher Vibration • A podcast on Anchor

In this New Earth there is no place for hate, discard, and anger. We are moving into a higher vibration and great change is imminent. What we are experiencing now is a cleansing. We are in the beginning stages of the great shift.  This means earth is moving into a higher vibration and so is humanity.   We are moving into the Fourth Density.  Those who are awakened will move into this new energy with ease. Those who have not yet awakened will have difficulty moving into this new energy.  But it is not too late for them.  They can choose to lift their vibration.

 It is important that we love and honor one another.

It is important that we help one another. 

It is important that we respect one another.

It is important that we uplift one another.

It is important that we accept one another.

I think this quote is appropriate.

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wednesday: “A New Heaven and a New Earth” | Sabbath School Net

Greetings Humanity,

First, I want to start by saying Happy New Year!  We are six days into this new year and experiencing more of the same but at a heightened level.  Today I became overwhelmed with emotions when I watched the video of protestors attempting to overthrow our democracy.  It saddened me to see so many filled with hate an anger. 

I reminded myself this is the old energy fighting to stay in control.  This is the battle between light and dark.  It is a spiritual warfare and Light will prevail.  I controlled my emotions and became an observer of what was happening.  The early months of this year are going to be rough. There will be more marches and riots.  Traitors are exposed and truths revealed.  

We are in the age of Aquarius and the great awakening is taking place.  We have a choice, move into the higher vibration with Gaia or remain in the lower vibration.  Those who choose to live life in a lower vibration will not be able to sustain the higher vibration of the New Earth. 

A new day is coming very soon.  By mid-year I believe things will be a little brighter. Here is a little something for you.  Listen to the words of this song. 

Love is Light and Light is Love

2021 is the first year in the age of Acquirus.


Unconditional Love: It's Not What You Think It Is

Greetings Humanity,

Jesus the Great Prophet said:

“— Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”

It takes great strength to live as Jesus has taught but I try everyday.

See Jessica Delmar’s message regarding unconditional love.

Love is Light and Light is Love


When you know the frequency of unconditional love, you are bound to its sacred emblem. This emblem is a mission of grace for all things: living and non-living. It is the doorway to the hearts of others, and the turning point for darkness to experience light. Unconditional love is the remembering and knowing of who you truly are. And once you experience who you truly are, there is no other that can take away the grace that you bestow upon your Self. – Jessica Delmar


Greetings Humanity,

I must confess my conflicting emotions about loving a lost soul.  I struggled with the idea of sending love and light to someone who commits murder, rape, or any type of heinous crime.  These past four years I have felt anger, frustration, disbelief, and confusion due to the actions of our politicians and officials in the highest office of this nation. It seems the agenda is to divide and conquer by creating discord, and suffering. At times I have been brought to tears when I witness the hate and ugliness occurring in our country.

I was not inclined to send love and light to individuals who are ruled by their lower nature and dark energy.  But I had to check myself and go deep, because I profess to love humanity.    

I had to work on myself to become a none-judgmental observer because all that we are experiencing is a part of the Divine plan.  I still fall short sometimes and when that happens, I remind myself that each of us came to this earth to fulfill a purpose. To paraphrase what Michelle Obama said, we can go high or we can go low.  My eye is on the prize – I choose to go high.

We are shifting into a new earth and dark must come to the surface for all to awaken and see what is real. The truth is, out of this darkness compassion for one another has emerged.

I have prayed, meditated, and asked for help to spread love to all. 

I thought of Jesus the Great Prophet who walked this earth to teach us who we are and how we should live.  He said:

 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a] But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.” – Matthew 5:38-39

And he said:

“” Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. “- 1 Peter 4:8

As Jesus was dying on the cross, he had presence of mind to say:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” – Luke 23:34

I figure the way to love all is by looking past the personality and have compassion for the soul.  Because a dark soul desperately needs love and light. 

It is my hope and desire to be a beacon of light spreading love and encouragement through this blog. We are powerful Beings, a spark of light from the great I AM, and we are connected, we are One. 

I ask that you join me in sending love and light to all, especially to those souls in darkness. If we do this as a collective, who knows what we might achieve for humanity.
