Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Raven Digitalis has been an empath all his life. He has focussed on Wiccan and pagan pursuits and is also a farmer. He now explores empathy for those who are newly grounded in it or for those would like to understand highly attuned empaths in their lives. Empathy is an emotional internalization. It is a word that is less than a 100 years old and comes from the German word to “feeling into” where you feel somebody else’s emotion as your own. “Empathy is considerate, compassionate and engaging.”

Unlike sympathy which is a feeling “for” somebody, empathy is a feeling “as” somebody. The empath is “absorbing” the emotional frequency. Everyone is empathic to one degree or another. It all depends on how much you have developed it. Many spiritual people indicate that the emotional response of empathy affects our karma.

Our empathic techniques include the following points: we don’t need to have all the answers, it’s good to be honest, disapproval is ok sometimes, you are not a victim, put yourself first, and cultivate gratitude.

Psychics have an enhanced ability to perceive energies and are more focussed as empaths. For those with highly-developed empathy, we have the benefit of transforming or transmuting the energies by increasing the vibrations. Emotional absorption can take place while on the phone, watching TV, and reading the newspaper, in that these are examples of everyday life energy and it is everywhere. If you feel something negative, transmute its energy field to something positive. If you feel something positive, amplify that to the energy grid.

Although the empath is more compassionate, he/she may be scared and see something they don’t want. Some sensitives turn to alcohol, drug abuse, addictions, video gaming and other methods of emotional disconnection. It is really a good thing to be an empath as we are helping to bring in a new aeon of ages into being. If we isolate ourselves for long periods of time, we are bringing in external negative energy without the ability to project our positive energy.

Some methods for dealing with empathy are to: look at the third eye instead of the eyes, covering up your crown chakra with a a hat or shawl, “fake it till you make it,” carry a rock or gemstone, watch your breathing, and surround yourself with like-minded empaths.

Having said all this, it is important for the empath to have boundaries and reinforce this with visualizing a shield of protection. The Mother Earth and Father Sky shield is a good grounding one. You can try a crystalline shield, an egg shield, a mirror shield, shield of iron, a cloak of invisibility, coat of arms, patterned shield, an empath’s heart shield, shield of prayer, or elemental shield.

Empaths are prone to anxiety, depression and emotional imbalances. There are ways to deal with these problems or issues. An empaths purpose is to inspire unity, growth and healing. Empaths are natural healers and that is what we are supposed to do. That is one reason we should be continuing in our community doing the work of transmuting empathic energy and vibrations.

There are a number of exercises in the book. The first one is to observe people and figure out what is going on. It there a dominant personality and a submissive one? Is it a mother and child trying to work out a conflict? What is the feeling between the couple or the group? A second exercise involves you meeting and talking to your Shadow Self. A third exercise is regarding absorptive and projective empathy. A fourth exercise is self-limitation cord cutting. A fifth exercise is morning and evening rituals for empaths. A sixth exercise is a bathing cleansing. A seventh exercise is an empathic journey into art. An eighth exercise is to think globally and act locally. A ninth and final exercise is for action for animals.

Remember “We are not mere emotional sponges. We are emotional alchemists!”

As a fellow empath, I found the book a good review with some very good insights and also some good suggestions for exercises. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels they are developing feelings of empathy towards others or are into metaphysical subjects. I found the book valuable for myself and found it a good read.

The book is available March 8, 2019 when it will be released to the public.

The Essential Water

Water

Book: “The Hidden Secrets of Water: Discovering the powers of the magical molecule of life,” by Paolo Consigli, MD

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

I feel as if I am reading the author’s Ph.D dissertation. It is extensive and long on such a subject as water. It covers nearly every possible angle and objective. It is interesting to read such an extensive account of water. There are many things one does not think of.

The book covers chaos theory and string theory. It covers quantum theory to ancient Chinese medicine to Ayurvedic philosophies and systems. It covers the fact that the Earth as well as the body is 70% water. It covers fractals and other patterns. It covers how water is related to the Aquatic Ape – possibly a predecessor to human beings in the past. It covers consciousness and how it is found in all of the body and not just the brain of the person even though 80% of the brain is made of water.

Here is an interesting quote from Felix Franks: “Without water, it is all chemistry. Add water and you get biology.” There is much more information regarding water and DNA and other biological functions available in this book.

It continues to discuss Masaru Emoto and his photography of water at minus 20 degrees celsius. Depending upon the source of the water whether clean or polluted determines if beautiful crystals appear. As well, even simply writing a positive word on a paper beside the water or playing nice orchestral music determines a beautiful crystal as opposed to violent, negative words and jarring music. It is as if the water has a conscious soul. As we are 70% water ourselves, Emoto is convinced our bodies go through the same reaction to positive and negative energy and so the mind-body connection is made or psychophysical health is made.

Today’s physicists see the world as composed of “minuscule vibratory entities that resemble strings which augment the complexity of information, and of probable events that mutate and evolve uninterruptedly.”

Further “Intelligence needs experience in order to become wisdom. And wisdom needs the word in order to be transmitted.”

Lao Tze teaches: “It is a simple prescription for those who feel lost, without any purpose in life, drowned by existential doubt: establish a relationship with water.” It is soft yet can go through something hard like rock. It is fluid. It is all encompassing. It is organic and yet inorganic. It is unitary in nature. It is one.

Water is incredible. Water is used to heal the body both internally and externally. The Appendix covers this topic at length. Thassolotherapy is the use of sea water for healing. It is a good book and well thought out. It is, like I said before, extensive. I enjoyed it but am glad I have completed this nearly 400 page book.
