If you’re like me, you were raised to accept what shows up in your life as “the will of God” and never, ever question or complain about what does show up. I always thought I was a peon, flawed, a sinner who had no business speaking to God other than to say I’m sorry for my many faults. Little did I know how wrong I was! I began, slowly but surely, to feel as though I was a being that is and always was a beloved individuated aspect of that Creator and I have been on a journey of awakening since. What I know now is that we live in a participatory universe and we play the central role in conscious creation. What I also know is that we haven’t come to the full realization of our powerful gifts and abilities and need a little feedback and reinforcement as we go along and that’s why I have learned to ask the universe some questions. The first is “what if”. What if all that I believe about myself is false? What if I am not hopeless, lazy, ugly, fat, stupid, unworthy? You’re not making statements that your subconscious mind can’t believe and will therefore guide you back to the old default thoughts. You are merely looking at possibilities that have never been entertained. The other “challenge” I give to the universe is this: Show me how it can get better”. Kristin and I talk about these ideas on this week’s episode of Empowered Empaths. This may change your life for the better so join us and find out for yourself. What if it is true?

Join Kristin and Martha as they discuss how we have all been dealing with the changes in the energy around us. While the past year feels as though it has beaten us up, Martha helps us learn more regarding how we can process some of it and move past this.
There has been much speculation about what’s going on in the world right now, everythingfrom Armageddon to the return of Christ. We can all see and feel the changes in the world andwhile it looks chaotic, many of us know this to be a paradigm shift of epic proportions. When aparadigm is shifting, chaos can and does manifest as the old energy is no longer helpful and isshifting to a higher vibration. Those who are not ready to grow and expand will find themselvesfeeling fearful, angry, and unsettled. Those of us who are engaging with and cooperating withthe process can feel the stress in our own endeavor of uncovering what no longer serves usand healing ourselves. On this week’s episode of Empowered Empaths, Martha welcomes ourfriend, psychic, medium and healer, Deborah Hendrickson as they discuss their ownexperiences as well as how to remain centered and optimistic.

Kristin and I have an unusual approach to our show content. Unless we have a guest, we allowour guides to inspire us with the subject matter and then allow the flow to happen, and italways does! This week, my guides had a message that they requested to be shared with ouraudience and I found myself taking dictation. I was asked if I would be willing to be amessenger for them in this venue as they have much to say so we can expect more messages.Having worked with these folks for many years, I know and trust them and their guidance. Iinclude this message below and may it be a blessing to you. “It is now time to put into use all of the memories of self that you have uncovered throughyears of inner work and self-healing. There are those who have been diligently occupied withthe process of remembering who you are and are eradicating all false assumptions of self thathave been imposed upon you and now it’s time to capture and incorporate a new idea of self.No longer will the belief that we aren’t worthy be entertained, if you cling to the old, obsoletebeliefs that belittle and disempower you, we will remind you of the truth. You came here withunique skills and those skills are needed now. There is no need to labor over this truth to bringit into your awareness, your singular contribution is now ready to be given and all you have todo is open your eyes in the morning and breathe. The more you “try” the more you confuseand confound yourself and then the flow of this dynamic expression of you is complicatedunnecessarily. What is requested now is that you enter into expansion by giving more attentionto your gifts and abilities and less attention to what you perceive to be your faults. The worlddoes not need a daily influx of negativity from the lightworkers who have chosen to incarnate atthis time and continue to feel deeply their perceived flaws and imperfections. Now is the timeto focus on our light, our successful transmutation of generational patterns of darkness, thegoodness of our core self, and the miraculous manifestations waiting to be born through ourhearts. We were there at the birth of this material reality and are part and parcel of itsmiraculous existence. Accept this understanding, let its vibration reside in every cell, and thenallow it to expand into every aspect of your beingness. Know that we celebrate you, we loveyou beyond any human measure and we await your request for guidance and assistance.Above all...remember who you are.”Join Kristin and I as we discuss this message and how it impacts our daily life. Namaste,Martha.
There is little doubt that we have just lived through one of the most difficult and frighteningyears that any of us can remember. Our lives were locked down, threatened with a deadlydisease and an undercurrent of simmering anger and hatred caused many of us deep traumathat led to various mental health challenges. All of us have been affected and even the mostpositive thinking, spiritually awakened folks feel a bit like they’ve been repeatedly pulledthrough a knothole in a fence.

In another journey into the heart of things, this week's episode of Empowered Empathsexplores the epidemic of self-blame and self-loathing. Why are we so quick to believe that weembody the worst attributes of humanity and why do we believe that everything bad thathappens is our fault? Have we ever examined why we are so harsh with ourselves? If we spoketo others the way we speak to ourselves, we would have no friends and would probably havemany scars from being beaten up. So why do we continue to berate and belittle ourselves andcan we change the inner narrative to something that more accurately reflects our true nature?Join Kristin and Martha as they share personal stories of failure and triumph while traveling theroad to self-love and respect.

How do you record a show when you have nothing to give? We don't know any empaths that aren't saying, "WTF" right now. Join Kristin and Martha for a show about validating how we feel with a big pick me up at the end.I have been asked repeatedly by friends and clients when all this drama is going to end.

Does it feel as though your last nerve has been trampled on or that breathless anxiety iswaiting to jump you? Are you trying to remember the sensation of serenity? Do you feel like afailure when “everything” finally gets to you and you collapse into fear and anger? If any of thisis relatable, please know that you are part of a very large club called Empaths on Overload. Wehave experienced so much shock, trauma, and uncertainty over the past few years that itsometimes feels mentally and emotionally suffocating. Spiritually, we may be tempted to feel asthough we’ve been abandoned and powerless as though darkness has the upper hand in theworld. The truth is that we are in the process of creating a new reality, one that reflects ourhighest and best selves rather than our lowest inclinations. Big job for sure but we all agreed toincarnate at this time, to contribute our unique talents and gifts to this process. We are not,however, immune to the chaos and fear that accompanies any paradigm shift but we canmanage it with some proactive behaviors and changes in thoughts. Join Kristin and Martha asthey share their strategies for remaining hopeful and helpful. We can do this, friends. We arebuilt for this and are here at this time by design!

This week Kristin and Martha discuss the idea that the constructs and how we interpret them,have affected our lives in a subtle but impactful way. Constructs are values, beliefs, opinions, and personal orientations about a particular, non-measurable event. Examples are love, fear,depression. These things cannot be measured or quantified but are identified by behaviors.There are many agreed-upon behaviors that will indicate that a person is “loving” or“depressed” or “afraid” but the accumulation of behaviors do not and cannot give us aconcrete, one size fits all definition of a particular construct but the inferred behavior evokesthe belief that a person is kind or loving. We make sense of our world by identifying behavior inways that we can measure and this week’s discussion asks whether we can and should.
