Is the term “Empath” losing its significant meaning?

So the term “empath” has been overused lately and I’m worried it’s starting to lose its significance due to how desensitized people are to emotion and showing sympathy towards others. Sympathy and empathy are not exactly the same, but are closely related. In addition, those who are skeptical about the power of emotion elevating to a psychic level have flagged the term “empath” as another way to con people with phenomena we can’t explain yet. However, there are empaths who experience the emotions of others so strongly that it does elevate to physical pain. It’s not at all the same as being offended or “being too emotional”, even though empaths are known for their heightened sensitivity.

I wrote about how all empaths have the potential for psychic empowerment for the sake of informing other empaths who either want to explore the psychic avenue or start finding ways to ground themselves. Whether they want to believe in psychic abilities or not, skepticism will not encourage an empath to understand what’s happening to them. In fact, they’ll just feel more ostracized and be ridiculed for “trying to be special”.

Being an empath has helped me with so many creative projects and build better relationships. I certainly don’t see myself as special, superior, or victimized by my nature. Empathic abilities show how vulnerability is power and I simply don’t want us to forget that. Please read my article if you’re a fellow empath that needs some advice or would like to just feel less alone. All we can do is be who we are.

Don’t be too rigid with yourself

This is more for me than it is for any readers lol but like everyone else, I fixate on a system or strategy to get what I want in life. The last thing life will be is orderly. Humanity kind of obsesses over order to have a sense of control and I’m not saying some order isn’t helpful, but everyone has their own unique preference for what order they need and what chaos or flexibility they need in certain situations. The factors to consider are endless, really.

I do need more organization in some situations for sure, but when it comes to my art, I have a natural feel for what needs order and what needs openness. For example, I’m very methodical with my novel, but definitely more lenient, almost random, with drawing and music. I have to mix up my working method with these things all the time to get a decent flow. Essentially, that’s the flow I think we all want in our lives. For things to feel natural rather than forced.

That’s all I had to say. Hope you all are having a good day.

Novel Progress and Short Stories – [News/Progress]

I keep going quiet unintentionally, but it’s mostly because I’ve been busy. Writing articles has been a lot of fun along with working on my novel and working on a creative project every week. This week, I’m focusing on a short story that I aim to publish on Kindle Direct Publishing.

Making my creative content into more and more of a business has been an exhausting adventure, but I don’t mind it at all. It’s really testing me and the obstacles I’ve run into with each test has been more helpful than defeating (Yes, that was basically “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.)

I was thinking about making my announcements with the novel an actual article, but whatever. I have finally read through the exposition of my novel, which truly was the first 100-110 pages and now I’m actually WRITING the second draft rather than just reading and making notes. It’s been really awesome to catch all the things in my story that made the beginning so plain and a bit predictable. I had to completely revamp my protagonist’s personality and weave the subplots into the main plot with a lot more finesse than before. So yeah, I’m thrilled about that!

For my short stories, I’ve been back and forth about how to present them, but I finally have a solid concept for the first story. My goal is to present short stories first to give you an idea of what my world and its dynamics are and then the novel. Many other authors I like have done that, and it’s been really fun so far. I have to admit, it’s sure making me a stickler about timelines (That’s a good thing though. A stressful, but good thing.)

That’s all I have to say. More research articles to come. I made a post on Instagram about the Kybalion which has been…a doozy, to say the least lol. It’s still going to take me a while to write about it because I need to have a solid foundation on Hermeticism first.

And just to reiterate, although I am pagan, my research/articles are done under a more objective or reflective intent for the sake of my creative projects and has zero intent to spread false information or be disrespectful of other belief systems.

Thanks again for all the support.

Astrology 101: Aspects – [New Article]

How many times have you tried to have a conversation with someone about their zodiac sign and they bluntly claim that their sign doesn’t describe them at all, and thus, it only seems like nonsense to them? Studying astrology takes an ample amount of time once you get past the sun sign.

Aspects “link the various parts of our nature and experience…[and] are shown as lines connecting planets from different parts of the chart. The position of the lines is determined by a set of rules, based on the number of degrees that separate the planets in the 360˚ chart circle,” (Gillett, 2011).

New article and spoken poem on the way – [News]

Hey there,

I guess everyone is back to the grind. I have an article discussing the basics of astrological aspects coming up along with a new spoken poem.

Just fyi, the last poem “The Monster Deep” is up on YouTube and other music platforms.

I’ve been having some difficulties with the Synchronicty Numbers article but I promise the link on my Metaphysical/Occult research page should work.

That’s all on those projects. Have a good day.

Article Revision – Synchronicity Numbers [News]

Thank you for the feedback on the synchronicity numbers article. Some of the images in the article kept repeating themselves so I have to revise that and then I’ll upload the article again with the link provided.

Quick Announcement

My pen name has been changed from Kris Colvin to Kris C. Leliel.

My artist/company name is still Authentikei.

I know this isn’t a big change, but I thought it’d be important for followers to know who’s working behind this creative content.
