Empath awakening

It’s been awhile that I have spoken to the empath’s heart and struggles, and I am definitely feeling them during these times of transitioning. I have known to be an empath for many years although most Empath’s only come to discover who they are after an intense awakening or by going through challenging times. I had both and although not sure which one, I realize it was one of these events that triggered the awareness of being an empath. What followed was a series of events of coming to terms, of understanding, of learning and adapting to new ways. In the beginning it’s confusing and being around people is then not tolerated well. We need to spend more time alone to figure it out for ourselves and try to make sense of it all. This can further intensify this strong sense of not belonging, of not fitting in, of being different. Different in the sense of not being accepted by others, making others feel uncomfortable in your presence, uncomfortable because you know exactly what is going on and it makes someone who is not ready to reveal feel naked. It’s not what you are trying to do but it this ability becomes a natural to you. You develop a sixth sense and you start reading the energy.

Dark times are like an initiation, precursor to change. We have to go through the dark to find the light. We have to lose to appreciate what we have. We are meant to move forward, have our own experience of discovery and seek out our own truth. It keeps us working towards bettering ourselves as we become stronger. There it is again…that word…stronger. And once you have gone through it all, once you have risen from the ashes like that Phoenix, strengths becomes secondary and is not your main goal anymore. When our intuition increases, when we trust our gut feelings, when we let go, we become healthier, ultimately arriving at the point where we stop looking outside ourselves for answers and go within. It is then that we realize that everything we seek is also seeking us, and that everything we need is already within us.

Namaste 💙🙏🏼


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

    1. Excuse me sir, but RB’s Journey over the years has been, if not, quite the most beautiful life discovery that you can come across.. Her experiences to me, are most influential, elegant and realistic. Expressed so beautifully. This is natural organic maturity in its prime. RB teaches it with the proper etiquettes to her readers. We have been missing that for so long… I believe her journey in trying to discover herself is an understatement, and she has ascertained the rights for her own discovery for quite sometime now..She has been there, and is a master of human rationale, a beacon for us who need clarity and to ensure the quality of life we all yearn for in its purest form of tradition..

      As one of her followers, i believe her quest is of strength, love and wisdom for the human race…Lets take notes and a bow as she could not give this to us, if she hadn’t found it within herself discovery first.
      She has been found.

      2. Dear MisterRick, I was truly touched about your comment, as well as the follow up. We as writers can only hope to share our story and if we inspire only one person along this journey, then we have achieved more than we can wish for. Coming from the heart, and being transparent has been my goal in the hopes that someone may find something helpful between the lines.
        I had no idea I had done so and that this is the way you feel. I am honored and humbled and I am most grateful for you have followed this journey and can recognize the progress. You are right, I have been found and as mentioned in a previous comment, this has now become a journey of coming home to my most authentic self. Thank you so much for sharing this ride with me and for standing up for me, although no harm was caused in any comment. I was truly touched by yo ur explanation and kindness and thank you whole heartedly. Big love to you 💙🙏🏼

    2. It could appear that way, but this journey is actually going on for a few years. I am discovered, I know who I am. The journey now is coming home to my most authentic self. Free from the conditioning of society, unlearning customs and values that were never mine to begin with. Finding the courage to stand alone, against the popular vote but truthful to myself. Healing ancestral trauma and inner child wounds. Doing shadow work and coming to accept myself, including any shortcomings and faults by realizing that I too deserve forgiveness and some slack. This journey of coming home to myself requires learning to go with the flow and complete surrender. To not wanting to be in control, to accept the past for the lessons it brought, to not live in the future so I can’t appreciate my now. After all it’s all I will ever have control of and I am more than fine with it. 🙏🏼💙

  1. This world, even though it tests us at times, is delivering us from ourselves. And in that beautiful path is something so profound, a gift in its many forms so we can indeed ‘feel’ what we are looking for.
    Thank you for sharing yours dear lady…and that delightful waterfall, back dropping a lovely lady who is finding her gift within 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
