Empath 101

Dreamtongue - The Empathic Language

What is an Empath?

To get straight to the point: Empath is a form of identity emerging in the twenty-
first century. The term has been used in literature and in film, but the reality is that
there are ever increasing numbers of people who identify with the Empath concept.

An Empath is a person who was born with unique variations in the central nervous
system. This means how the brain is configured and how the nervous system works in
the body. This has not yet been studied and quantified by science. Instead it is being
brought forth by individuals who are becoming self-aware of these qualities and who
explore this experience through creative and intuitive outlets.

A high degree of overall sensitivity is the general indicator for this type of person. All of
the sensory organs of an Empath have low thresholds thereby resulting in unusual
sensitivity to light, smell, and sound (as well as other subtler senses). Although
underlying sensitivity is the unifying factor behind all Empaths, how this sensitivity is
"managed" or "funneled" varies from person to person.

An Empath also possesses a very sensitive emotional nature, that is typically difficult to
self-manage. Books have been written on "highly sensitive people" and those materials
are relevant to this topic. However, being highly sensitive is only one part of the formula
for Empaths.

As a result of the interaction between an extremely sensitive neural network and the
concurrent emotional nature of a person with this profile, Empaths are highly intuitive.
The word intuition needs to be better understood when used in communications but I
will save that for a later article.

A better understanding of intuition leads to a better understanding of what actually

constitutes an Empath. For now, I only want to say that Empaths are highly intuitive
which means they tend to do things by feeling, by sensing, by reacting to proprioceptive
queues, and by following "hunches, gut-feelings," etc. This includes critical decision
making, reacting, and acting upon influences in their own lives predominately from
intuitive queues. This process can lead to better or worse results depending upon the
development of the Empath.

Empaths are driven by their own intuitive natures. This can be for good or bad.
There is no virtue implied in the term "Empath." After nine years of studying Empaths
online, and thirty in general, I have found that the majority who step forward suffer
from some form of mental distress or disorder. This does not mean that the majority of
Empaths suffer from mental "illness", instead it implies that the majority of Empaths
encountered in my research profess to some sort of "struggle" with their own
uniqueness. Since my training is in mental health counseling, I found this to be
fascinating and made this area a special part of my research. My model does not
supplant the medical model of mental illness but does suggest that "excess wiring" (so
to speak) and "diverse thresholds" may require other interventions beyond medical
treatment. I firmly believe in adhering to the standards we have established in all
medical and psychological fields of science. Yet this belief does not inhibit my desire to
explore and discover through, what I call, the "panheuristic" process. Ask me about the
panheuristic process in my Yahoo Empaths group.
Empaths are driven by deep intuitive connections that are largely unconscious, as if
sitting on top of a vast oil reserve in the ground and being a conduit (oil well) for this
massive amount of energy. Most of what an Empath senses or "knows" cannot be
verified immediately which creates a terrible psychic conflict for the person. The over
abundance of real and imagined stimuli are frequently overwhelming. Sorting out the
two is even more so. That is why I am a major advocate of structured training!

Imagine having vast amounts of information floating around in your head but no direct
way to access it or express No way to sort it out or use it in any clearly defined way.
Most of what it is cannot be proven immediately but does get proven over time. (I am
skipping over a great deal of points here, just to make a point).

The stress of taking in the emotions of other people, of sensing information on a

continual basis, of being a "human sponge", of being driven by deep inner forces that
are not understood, all create a "torture chamber" of sorts within the average Empath.
This does not have to be as melodramatic as I make it sound, but please understand - it
frequently is for the subject.

I refer to this state in the Book of Storms as the "unbonded" Empath. Before figuring
out who you are, you must figure out what you are, and reconcile the two. It's called
the Book of STORMS for a reason! Learning about your internal storms, the nature of
"storms", and how to "manage your own inner weather" are all par for the course.
Empaths identify with many forms of nature and frequently feel affinity towards storms.
Obviously, it is a powerful personal smbol for me. I have always felt "connected" to
storms. As a metaphor, storms offer an unending supply of creative insight.

Many Empaths suffer from anxiety due to an overload of incoming stimuli and intuitive
information. Some suffer from depression due to being overwhelmed with all the
"storms" going on inside. It is not uncommon for an Empath to tell me that he or she
has been diagnosed as "bipolar/manic-depressive." Now, that does not mean that if you
were diagnosed as bipolar that you are automatically an Empath - it just means there is
a possibility that we are quick to put medical labels on things without fully investigating

The interesting questions that arise are: Are Empaths more susceptible to mental
illness? OR Is the mental illness/distress the result of being an unbonded Empath?
Which comes first? This research still goes on. I have met plenty of well adjusted
Empaths - yet will still find that they seek some sort of comfort somewhere, either in
mild medication or counseling, something to soothe those internal storms.

The professional fields of Psychology & Psychiatry do not yet recognize these factors and
continue to leave all the issues "clumped" together, undifferentiated. I originally planned
this work for a doctoral thesis but will not be pursuing that in this lifetime now. Instead,
I am putting it into a user friendly format in hope that an emerging self-awareness
among Empaths will take place, creating a positive wave of change for the planet.
Anytime the "collective mind" of the human race can change towards the better and
grow, good can happen on new scales. Yes, I am an idealist. We frequently are.

Now, for a more popular explanation! An Empath is a type of "psychic", but instead
of reading the "future" or viewing remote objects, the Empath specializes in reading
people. I only mention all this because there is now a huge overlap/confusion between
the two words. The "free for all" mentality of the new age movement seized upon the
Empath term after we flooded it on the internet, so everyone , everywhere threw in
what they had or knew to the concept. I suggest using the word Empath as a hybrid
form of psychic, more of a realistic/grounded version of our potential for extra sensory
perception. An Empath is sensitive to the visible as well as the invisible. An Empath
reads body language, tone of voice, body movements, the words people choose when
they speak, the words they avoid, the logic they use; and the hidden things that only an
Empath can sense inside another person. A fully developed Empath reads on what could
be considered a 360 degree scope. I have this entire 360 scope mapped out in great
detail in a teaching model I call the PHI Model of Consciousness or P.H.I. P.H.I. stands
for "panheuristic intelligence" which is ultimately what I am advocating. My research
has been inspired by the work of Dr. Timothy Leary and the many brilliant souls who
elaborated on his work. It is also inspired by the profound teachings of the Buddha,
from the very core and heart of what I believe the Dharma to be.

Empaths are extremely powerful people. In the next article I will tell you what I mean
by that and introduce the first course. The first course is very basic. Yes, I know - you
could be very advanced and beyond all that, but start the first course in Empath 101:
"Dreamtongue" starting with the basics. That way, by the time you get to the
advanced stuff - you will excel and feel wonderful about your growth!

Dreamtongue is a course in empathic communication and is the pre-requisite for all

classes to follow. To benefit from the course start with the introduction and then work
with each lesson separately and in order. You can work at your own pace. Some people
will be ahead of you, some will be behind, and others will be starting just after you.

Work at your own pace. Post questions as needed and share your experiences with the
materials inside the Yahoo group. Do not be concerned with others being ahead of you
or of feeling that you are too far behind. Just work in your own timeframe and you will
be fine. This process has been tested over the years by many people.

Stage One
Awakening the Sleeping Empath Within You

To begin with you are already psychic. That means you are already
receiving information through levels distinct from your ordinary senses
of sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. Therefore, there is no actual
need for you to develop "psychic abilities." If you practice "psychic
development" exercises that is fine and it is your own choice but it can
be a waste of time without perspective.

You may or may not have realized this part of yourself yet. Every person, and in fact,
every living thing on this planet is psychic (and by that I essentially mean that we are
all "interconnected" on levels that are not readily apparent - yielding more information
than we have currently acknowledged or understood.) Many years of experience and
research have helped me discover some important facts that have led me to this
conclusion that every living thing is psychic.

I will be sharing those points of information with you throughout this book. What is
important for you to learn is how to recognize and utilize all of the information that is
already coming to you. It is through your intuitive abilities that you will begin to nurture
your Empath nature.

You will find within these lessons intense guidance and support for realizing your
empathic potential. The process of learning the empathic language, Dreamtongue,
automatically takes you through all of the stages of becoming an Empath. You can pass
through the stages again and again, growing more each time, spiraling open from
An Empath is an "active psychic." By active psychic I mean a person who is capable of
using their psychic abilities at any point in time just as they would any of their other
abilities. I propose this image over that of someone who is "trying to do something
remarkable or extraordinary." Most psychic information is very mundane and even

Specifically, Empaths have highly attuned sensitivity to the emotional and mental states
of others, as a result of active psi abilities. Everyone has a psychic potential, but not
everyone knows how to access or utilize that potential on a regular basis, in a useful
way. Until this part of our brains is properly mapped out by science most work in this
area will be guess work. (speculation)

The primary venue for "psychic connection" occurs between people and living things, so
psychic communication takes place primarily between people. Empaths are "psychic"
about people; more so than about objects, times, or events. Therefore, the term
Empath here indicates an active people focused psychic, a person who listens to and
utilizes the silent language of Dreamtongue to enhance relationships and
communications. In theory, an Empath should be an expert in relationships and
communications. We'll hold that thought for now.

I will use the words psychic, intuitive, and empathic interchangeably throughout the
lessons, gradually redirecting the terms towards a more "empathic goal."

Intuitive information is always present within your mind. You may not be aware of that

The problem or challenge is that intuitive information is largely received and stored in
your unconscious. The way to tap into that information is by listening in to a very subtle
dialog that is occurring in your head even as you read this. It is possible that you have
many dialogs, voices, or thoughts going on in your mind at all times, drowning out the
intuitive information available to you. This is the problem of the discursive mind. There
is a exercise that I teach, called "focused sitting" that tames this issue very effectively.
It is addressed in the second course called "The Psychology of Energy."

That internal dialog is the result of your conscious and unconscious communicating with
each other in a continuous feedback loop. You may or may not have noticed this dialog
before. Most of us notice the nagging, critical version of an inner voice that dissects our
thoughts and feelings. Most of us are preoccupied with that voice. Yet there is a more
powerful, more "REAL" voice just underneath all that inner mental noise.

It is a very small and soft "voice" or form of information, often referred to as the small
still voice within. I call this your "dream voice." This dream voice is the "sound" of
the dialog between your conscious and unconscious minds.

That dream voice is the one that urges you at times to turn right on a street, to pick up
the phone and call someone, or to avoid a certain place at a certain time. Often we
ignore that voice and think later that we should have listened. It's more of a feeling
than a sound, yet it is something somewhere in-between, an echo. It is through these
pages and my teachings that I send out my silent echo. I visualize Empaths like whales
and dolphins around the oceans of the world. We have a level of communication
available to us that is not limited by time and space. I send my silent echo to all who
can hear and all who will come.

How often have you said something like, "I kept thinking that I should call you but I just
didn't," or, "something kept telling me to drive down that street but I just thought I was
being silly?"
This tiny little messenger comes from the feedback loop between your conscious and
unconscious mind. It is difficult to listen to this voice because it speaks a different
language, the empathic language of Dreamtongue. An important distinction between the
"conscious mind voice" and the" unconscious mind voice" is as follows:

 The "conscious voice", the rational waking mind, speaks loud and clear.
It's primary mode is to analyze, break things down, and utilize those things.

 The "unconscious mode," the intuitive subconscious mind, speaks in

whispers, shades, and metaphors. Its primary mode is to synthesize, put
together, and reveal more gestalt workings.

When the intuitive voice is trying to tell you something it is often a matter of guessing
the message. It is very much like talking to someone who speaks a different language
than you. Occasionally you can get the gist of what they are trying to say but it is
mostly guess work.

This is where most of us struggle with intuitive nature. We are often aware that we are
receiving or sensing some information but do not know how to interpret it. The dream
voice comes from the sleeping Empath within. I use that metaphor to encourage a
subjective feeling, like having a rosebud inside that has yet to bloom. The potential of
awakening a sleeping Empath within, invites growth and transformation on many levels.

Your inner Empath/psychic is sleeping because it is within your unconscious, its "eyes"
are closed but it still sees, its ears are closed but it still hears. Your inner Empath
whispers to you when you are awake. It is your best friend and your guide. It is you, in
your fullest capacity.

When you sleep you travel into your unconscious where the barrier between you and
your inner Empath disappears. In your sleep you experience the language of your
unconscious through dreams. Once you awaken that language fades into the
background and becomes the quiet dream voice once again.

Stage Two
The Basics of Empathic Language

Now that you have studied Lesson One you have essentially
completed the first stage of preliminary training in

The idea is to formulate an understanding of your own

empathic nature by examining your beliefs and by
considering some very basic information.

If you are unsure about what you established in stage one

then please re-read the chapter.

Although you will receive these lessons at a steady rate, please remember to pace
yourself. Work at the speed that benefits you the most. There is no hurry. The more
effort you put into each lesson, the more benefit you will receive from them all. Once
you are sure that you are finished with the first lesson then you are ready to learn
Dreamtongue is the language of the unconscious, the language of dreams and the
empathic levels of the mind. Here I want to give you working definitions of the terms
conscious and unconscious. This is the foundation of the language.

The conscious mind is the part of you that uses words to think and to deal with
information. The conscious mind involves all those things of which you are aware at any
given moment. The normal flow of the conscious mind deals with sensory input from the
eyes, ears, nose, taste buds, and sense of touch.

The conscious mind is synthesized from the verbal centers of the brain, the language
centers. Any thought or perception organized by words, by language, and, of which you
are aware, is occurring in your conscious mind.

Remember the analogy that your waking mind is the Sun? The Sun provides light and
light is awareness. When you become aware of something it has entered your conscious

The unconscious mind deals with information as well but does not directly use words.
You process stimuli without words and it is this processing that I am referring to as the
unconscious. It is still possible to receive information without being aware of it. The
classic example is that you can be sitting in a room with a clock ticking and not be
aware of the sound. Your ears still pick up the sound but you are not paying attention to
it, therefore no thought is attached to it. In other words, it does not enter your
conscious mind.

Another example might be that subtle shifts in temperature and motion occur when
someone is walking up from behind you, but you are not consciously aware of that
person. Your own body chemistry and nervous system may respond to those shifts but
no thought is attached to them. You are then receiving information about a person
coming up behind you but not from what you see or hear directly. This information is
being processed through your unconscious mind, your nonverbal centers.

The potential for receiving information in this way is proprioception. Some people
have used proprioception to explain away empathic abilities but in so doing they are
throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Proprioception is just the tip of the iceberg,
the tip of the unconscious mind.

The unconscious goes much deeper than proprioception. Anything that is occurring
within your body is part of your unconscious. In fact, to truly understand and define the
unconscious would be to say that your body itself is the unconscious!

You are all mind and all body. There is no separation from the two. Once you work with
that understanding you will be amazed at how much empathic information has been
knocking at your door, just waiting for you to open that door! The world of infinite
possibilities opens up when you understand that mind and body are one thing.
Yet our language cuts the two in apart no matter how carefully we choose our words.

Just as the conscious mind links to the verbal centers of the brain, the unconscious links
into the associational centers. The associational centers are more like the memory of
things seen or the memory of things heard, rather than being involved with actual
seeing and hearing.

Now this is important: the associational centers form the channel between the
conscious mind and the unconscious mind. This is the place where the small still
voice within originates. The dialogue inside of this channel is the dream voice, the place
where Dreamtongue occurs.
To break these definitions of conscious and unconscious down into usable forms I will
say the following: The conscious mind communicates with words as language; the
unconscious mind communicates with associations as language.

When you look at a decorated Christmas tree your senses tell you that it is a green tree
with objects attached to it. It is probably not doing anything other than holding still and
blinking with small lights. Yet, a deeper perception of the tree is occurring involving all
types of feelings that are the result of associations.

When you look at a Christmas tree you do not just see a tree with objects on it, you see
Christmas past and present, you have many feelings of all sorts, you associate it with all
types of experiences.

Since you have probably had a lot of practice with responding to Christmas trees, most
of your associations to the tree flow readily into your conscious mind. When you are not
aware of those associations they remain dormant in your unconscious.

Empathic information, by definition, originates within your unconscious. It usually stays

there unless it creates an impulse strong enough to surface in some fashion. Empathic
information does not have the direct link to sight and hearing as does sensory

Sensory information communicates to you externally then is taken internally for

processing. Empathic information works exactly the opposite. Empathic information
originates internally and then can be communicated externally. Empathic information
is by definition, always a response to something.

Too often people try to measure empathic information by the same standards as
sensory information. It is equivalent to the fellow looking for his keys under the lamp
because there is more light. It does not work to treat empathic information and sensory
information as the same phenomenon. Therefore you cannot use the same instruments
or procedures to measure them.

Dreamtongue is the language of the unconscious, the language of dreams, of symbols

and associations, of archetypes, and the levels of empathic awareness. It is a language
rich in meaning and impact on our lives. Normal verbal language is very limited by

Dreamtongue is like communicating in holograms. A hologram is a special type of

photography that produces a three dimensional image. If the photographic plate is
shattered into pieces, each piece is capable of producing the full three dimensional
image of the original. Each piece contains the essence of the whole.

Advanced theorists in science and philosophy have proposed that the universe itself is
one singular hologram of which we are all a part. Each part then contains the essence of
the whole. Dreamtongue speaks with symbols and associations that are in effect
holograms. Any part of Dreamtongue contains the essence of every other part, so if you
only get a tiny bit of information, that tiny bit contains the entire message. With all of
this said, Dreamtongue is remarkably simple and beautiful.

After many years of working with my own empathic perceptions and those of my
students I have discovered that there are five primary levels of empathic perception.
These five levels constitute the "grammar" of Dreamtongue. Just as in verbal language
there are nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc., in Dreamtongue there are betas, thetas,
alphas, etc. Learning about these levels and the "mechanics" of the language will help
you speak and interpret the language. I also refer to these categories as the "alphabet"
for intuitive language, emphasizing the holographic interchangeability within each piece
of information.

Yet it is not imperative that you memorize the structure and parts of Dreamtongue,
unless you want to teach Dreamtongue. Once you begin working with it you will find
that it is a "living" force which empowers you naturally. It is your own natural language,
coming from your heart, your soul, and all levels of your being. So study the parts and
mechanics but do not be bogged down by the words. The words are to help your
conscious mind become more open and receptive to empathic language.

In this lesson you will pass through stage two of your preliminary training by learning
about the five primary empathic levels and the types of communication that originates
from each level. Throughout this course you will learn each distinctive level and then by
stage eight you will learn how each level weaves into the amazing empathic language of

The Five Levels of Dreamtongue

In normal language you learn parts of speech and the rules for using the language. First
you learn the alphabet, then small words, then more words, and eventually how to put
the words together.

Learning about the five levels of Dreamtongue is just like learning the empathic
alphabet. The empathic alphabet is simpler because it only has five letters! These five
letters also constitute a set of "grammar rules" for the flow of Dreamtongue.

Sounds incredible that such a powerful language has only five letters, but remember
that the language is holographic. An entire message is available in one bit of
information. To make the empathic alphabet usable by the conscious mind I have used
Greek letters to describe them. Please note: I am not utilizing the Greek letters to
parallel any other system which also refers to Greek letters.

The five letters of the empathic alphabet are (in order): Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and
Gamma. It is not important here to know the actual Greek letters for we are not talking
normal written language. Remember Dreamtongue works by associations, not by literal

To keep these five letters distinct as empathic language I have paired or associated
them with five images from a traditional empathic teaching, the five Tattwas from the
Tibetan magickal traditions. This association comes from my efforts to weave together
the fine connection between Eastern and Western insight through the field of Empath
Psychology. Dreamtongue has it's roots in Eastern and Western Mysticicism, serious
metaphysical schools of thought and philosophy, and especially Transpersonal

If you continue your study and progress into a detailed analysis of the Chakra system,
you will find the associations between the five empathic levels and the Chakras to be
quite profound.

The association between the brain wave patterns, the empathic levels, and the Tattwa
symbols may seem arbitrary at first, but one you have a solid grasp of those symbols
you will be ready to learn an amazing silent language.

The Basics:
Beta -- is symbolized by the yellow square Tattwa

Alpha -- is symbolized by the silver crescent Tattwa

Theta -- is symbolized by the red triangle Tattwa

Delta -- is symbolized by the blue circle Tattwa

Gamma -- is symbolized by the purple oval Tattwa

Now you have the five letters of the empathic alphabet. At this point they have no real
meaning to you. When you first learned your ABC's you simply copied them down or
recited them because the teacher asked you to do so. Eventually you found out that you
put the letters together to spell the words you use.

Dreamtongue originates from how your mind/body whole communicates and functions.
Next I have tied the empathic alphabet into brain waves. Brain waves change as your
activity and state of being changes. There are four general levels of brain waves that
relate to the empathic alphabet and a fifth category which is unique to Dreamtongue.


Beta (association: yellow square)

When the brain is aroused and actively engaged in cognitive or mental

activities, it generates beta waves. Beta waves are of relatively low
amplitude, and are the fastest of the four different brainwaves. The
frequency of beta waves ranges from 15 to 40 cycles a second. The level of brain wave
activity for each state is not critical information here. I mention it just to show that the
brain does divide into levels of functioning but mainly to show that we are using
symbolic associations for those levels, rather than scientific measures. I encourage
research into brain wave activities if you wish to advance your studies.

When you are actively engaged in a conversation you are generating beta waves. A
person delivering a passionate speech is in a high beta state. In Dreamtongue, Beta is
your conscious waking state. The more active and alert you are the more Beta you
generate. Beta is the mainframe for the software in your brain, in other words, the
"foundation" for your conscious mind.


Alpha (association: silver crescent)

Alpha brainwaves are slower and higher in amplitude. Their frequency

ranges from 9 to 14 cycles per second. You are generating alphas
when you relax, are near day dreaming, near sleep, or just entering

The most intense Alpha state is the hynogogic state, which is right before you fall
asleep. Alpha is fertile ground for empathic receptivity; it is the primary channel of
empathic awareness.

Theta (association: red triangle)

Theta brainwaves, are typically of even greater amplitude and slower

frequency than Alpha waves. This frequency range is normally
between 5 and 8 cycles a second. You normally only generate thetas
when you are in deep sleep or in the middle of a powerful meditation.

The R.E.M (rapid eye movement) stage of sleep and dreaming are associated with
Theta. Theta is the inner screen upon which you view empathic information and



Delta brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency.

They typically range from 1.5 to 4 cycles per second. Typically, 2 to 3
cycles a second.

You generate deltas when you are in deep dreamless sleep, so deep that it would be
difficult to wake you. It is also possible to generate deltas when you are in profound
states of meditation and altered states of consciousness. Fully actualized and trained
Empaths can generate a Delta state with their eyes open.



Gamma is distinct from the above four states. Delta involves brain waves at 1 to 4
cycles per second. So it seems we have run out of brain waves doesn't it?

Gamma is not associated with specific brain wave states; rather it is the source state
of consciousness. It is the potential for consciousness and the potential for any brain
wave state. It is the holographic potential of the mind expressed as a unified field, the
mental equivalent of "implicate order" a concept you will be introduced to in later

Gamma is the source of consciousness which eludes the microscope and the trained
eye. You generate gamma simply by "being". Gamma is not identified in other systems,
it is unique to Dreamtongue.

Let's look at what you have learned so far. There are five letters of the empathic alphabet.
Each one is labeled with a Greek letter. Each letter is symbolized by a Tattwa symbol. Each
symbol relates roughly to a brain wave state. The final part of this lesson ties in specific types
of empathic functioning related to each empathic letter.

Beta is related to empathic activity expressed through the physical body and
through physical objects. Beta events are psychokinesis, mind over matter, influence
by thought, moving objects with the mind, etc.
What normally comes to mind with Beta events are images of someone willing the
needle of a compass to move, or bending spoons, or the more dramatic idea of
levitation. Yet psychokinesis or telekinesis is better understood through phenomenon
like empathic healing.

The ability of your empathic mind to influence your own body and the body of another
better captures the nature of Beta. Beta messages are discussed in the following

Alpha is related to general empathic sensitivity. The Alpha state is a more

receptive state than Beta. Beta "generates," Alpha 'receives." In Beta the waking mind
you are more in a state of generating or sending out signals. In the Alpha state you are
opening up your awareness to greater degrees of receptivity.

In Alpha you become more aware of internal signals and can better focus on your dream
voice. You are tuning out some of the outside world and are listening in to the internal
word of the unconscious.

The Alpha level relates to generalized types of empathic functioning like sensing
emotions, sensing danger, unusual feelings that are "signals", general or vague intuition,
hunches, and feelings in general are Alpha messages.

Theta is what I like to call "psychic" central. It is the place where empathic
information is processed. When you are asleep and dreaming a vivid dream you are in a
Theta state and in that state empathic information is woven into the fabric of the

Theta involves mind to mind communication, or telepathy. Telepathy is when two people
speak Dreamtongue to each other at the Theta level. Telepathy is possible between all
living things plant or animal. Telepathy involves the process of listening or empathic

It is not a matter of "reading another person's mind," which is more of a stage trick. It
is the result of two or more nervous systems becoming synchronized or linked in some
fashion. The communication can involve thinking the same or similar thoughts or having
the same feelings, physical or emotional. Theta is the "point" where we connect with

Delta is the source of all the empathic information that is processed in Theta.
Here information exists as holograms, composites, and gestalts. Delta is related to the
very function of empathic perceiving. It is the level of empathic vision or "clairvoyance."

Here information comes as pictures, images, and symbols, all which contain information
that can be translated into feelings, thoughts, and words. Delta is the sleeping Empath
within you. Sleeping because it is shut off from the senses but very active and
very powerful within your unconscious.

Gamma is the level that baffles everyone and even eludes the serious
researchers of parapsychology. Gamma is the place beyond all of our senses and
awareness. From Gamma comes perception of future and past events. It cannot be
clearly defined nor can it be fully controlled.

The previous four levels of empathic functioning relate to the interconnectedness

between living things. The abilities of precognition, seeing into the future, and
retrocognition, seeing into the past, result from an understanding of existence that is
not available to our conscious minds. Although a veritable universe of speculation exists
in this area, I encourage you to keep an open mind with regards to explaining Gamma

At the Gamma level we enter the world of metaphysical and spiritual knowledge,
something that best communicated through Dreamtongue, through symbols, myths,
archetypes, ideas, and associations. Dreamtongue involves at first a deep understanding
and connection with Gamma, then in the advanced stages, it involves a very careful and
deliberate use of words and images to evoke and process information.

All five levels of empathic functioning do not occur independently of each other. They
are all happening at the same time within you right now. You learn them
separately but eventually you merge your understanding of them all working in
unison. The Delta state is active within you right now even though you are not in a
deep sleep, but it is active in the unconscious.

Each part of your self communicates with every other part creating a continuous flow of
Dreamtongue. In the following chapters you will learn how to understand and develop
each level so that you too will learn the exquisite nature of empathic language.

Stage Two Review

1. The goal of stage two is to educate yourself about the basics of empathic language.

2. The conscious mind communicates with words for language. The unconscious mind
communicates with associations through symbols, images, archetypes, and feelings.

3. There are five "letters" to the empathic alphabet. Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and
Gamma. These letters also act as "rules of grammar" for understanding the flow of

4. The five letters are symbolized by Tibetan Tattwas: the yellow square for Beta, the
silver crescent for Alpha, the red triangle for Theta, the blue circle for Delta, and the
purple oval for Gamma. This association provides a geometric link, or visual dimension
to Dreamtongue.

The five letters represent the five levels of empathic functioning which are related to
brain wave functions and empathic functions:

 Beta: rapid brain waves, mind over matter; the continuum between
consciousness and matter.

 Alpha: relaxed, relaxing brain waves; empathic sensitivity, psychometry,

blind sensing, intuition.

 Theta: REM brainwaves, telepathy, empathic dreams, empathic hearing.

 Delta: profoundly slow, deep brain waves, empathic source, empathic seeing

 Gamma: pure consciousness as unified field effect, precognition,


6. Dreamtongue is the result of all of these levels interacting with one another
on a continuous basis. All levels are active at all times but specific states are more
conducive to accessing a particular level. I have tied in classic psychic terms, such as
"telepathy" and "clairvoyance" for a reason.
Becoming a fully actualized Empath involves a total integration of the personality with
one's abilities and the understanding of one's abilities. To become an awakened Empath
is to "become whole", first and foremost. So the subject of psychic phenomenon is not
treated as a separate category in this beginning course.

yourself, I want you to stop thinking of intuition and psychic perception as

"abilities," and start thinking of them as a form of language. This is the secret

discovered by my work in the School of Empath Psychology. This is what will

Stage Three
Developing Empathic Awareness

In the previous lesson you passed through stage two of your training in Dreamtongue.
You are on your way to becoming a fully actualized Empath, which in it's full realized
form, is called an "implicate."

You have learned the core parts of the empathic alphabet and how they relate to the
levels of empathic functioning. In this lesson you will learn the details of the Beta level,
how to recognize and interpret Beta messages, as well as how to understand this first
level of Dreamtongue.

Beta is the first level of the empathic language. This stage introduces you to
plugging your five primary senses into available empathic information. Remember the
sleeping empathic within you is functionally separate from your conscious mind and
does not normally use your primary senses. To the empathic within you, Beta is the
outer world, the surface world, the outermost regions of your psyche.

For all practical purposes Beta is everything that is perceived by your eyes, ears, nose,
taste buds, touch, etc. You are in a Beta state when you are awake and alert. A
Beta state occurs as you are generating an abundance of brain wave cycles per second.
The more active you are the more brain waves you can generate.

You might want to call Beta the "nonempathic" level, but don't. There is no such thing
as a nonempathic level. Empathic phenomenon occurs because of an innate
connectedness between all things, especially living things. Due to the fact that your
primary senses are active in Beta, your brain has been conditioned to rely on those
senses for survival.
Your primary senses are your outermost senses but they, too, have deep roots in the
unconscious. Through the Beta stage of your training you will learn to use what your
outermost senses provide in order to interpret empathic information.

Beta is you as a whole solid entity with mass, density, weight, etc. The empathic part of
Beta is actually your eyes, ears, nose, etc.; empathic because these organs take signals
in to your interior world, your psyche. They are essentially gateways to your inner
world. These gateways are limited by their physical dimensions but are very practical

The limitation of those senses is represented by the yellow square of Beta . The yellow
is light, awareness, boxed in on four sides. The four sides indicate an orientation to the
physical world by representing north, south, east, and west in their respective places.

All of this information sounds very fundamental and elementary – and it is. But if you
make an effort to learn it you will be prepared for more complex courses that provide
truly amazing insight into empathic functioning.

Since information from the primary senses is dominant at the Beta level for most
people, information from the innermost senses hides behind the conscious mind. As you
will learn, the innermost senses are Alpha, Theta, and Delta. The omniscient Gamma
mind, which you possess, cannot really be described as a sense.

At the Beta level information from your primary senses floods your brain on a
continuous basis, keeping your awareness busy most of the time. Direct empathic
information, information that is not apparent to your primary senses, is typically
drowned out by all the activity in your waking mind. All the activity in your waking mind
is a form of "mental noise," which is almost always louder than your dream voice. The
dream voice is always present and always available.

Your dream voice is simply your empathic awareness at the Beta level. It is the
connecting point between your innermost and outermost senses. Beta is then, the
vehicle for the entire process. This makes Beta VERY important: not something to avoid,
skirt around, or ignore. Instead Beta is your key to powerful empathic functioning.

Now let's wrap the previous two paragraphs together. Beta is the vehicle for the entire
empathic process and that vehicle is your full body/mind system. Beta is the receiver
and the sender of information. The Beta senses are constrained by physical
limitations but are rooted in the deeper senses, which have no physical constraints.

Your body is your Beta level. Your waking mind is your Beta level. Other than empathic
dreaming, much of your empathic work will occur while you are in Beta, or are awake.
To become an active empathic, you must connect your normal waking state with your
empathic nature. You do this by understanding the nature of Beta and by understanding
that empathic information is available through sensory information.

To understand how empathic information is available through sensory information

requires rethinking some more beliefs about empathic abilities. In working with students
to open their own empathic channels, I often have them do an exercise where one class
member stands in front of the group while the rest attempt to retrieve empathic
information about that person.

Frequently students express concern that impressions they have come from what they
can see and are therefore logical conclusions or guesses. Usually they spend so much
time trying to avoid sensory information and guessing that they do not tap into their
empathic impressions. The point of understanding the Beta level is that you can
take any Beta message (sensory input) and follow it like a thread until you go
to deeper levels and discover empathic information.

For example, a woman once stood before the class who had several qualities that some
people in the class associated with being a nurse. They said that her shoes, her haircut,
and her overall demeanor somehow made them think that she was a nurse. The people
who were arguing within themselves that this conclusion was the result of obvious signs
as well as guessing, could get no further information. They were putting too much effort
into resisting their primary senses.

There were others who followed their sensory information and traveled into deeper
territory. Someone saw a yellow sweater, even though she was not wearing anything
yellow. Someone else saw fire all around her and two small children. After the session
she told us that her and her two siblings were rescued from a fire when they were
young, and yes, she received a yellow sweater as a present only days before this class.

The point is to not discount sensory information. It is the beginning of a train of

information that is available to you. Remember that empathic language works through
association. You can follow sensory information by first acknowledging it, not by
resisting it. Then allow associations to form around those perceptions.

If you see someone slumped over and visibly unhappy, then recognize that conclusion
as a Beta message, the first level of empathic language. Associations and impressions
will then begin to form and as you examine those associations you are following that
information down into deeper levels of perception.

What we have established so far is that: A Beta message is any signal picked up by your
primary senses. In the same way that your body is your Beta, the vehicle for
your entire empathic process, a Beta message is the vehicle for an entire
empathic message.

If you are into highlighting, highlight the sentence you just read. It is a place to focus
your awareness, and that focus acts like a magnet attracting associations. Those
associations act as links to deeper senses. When you make associations and observe the
impressions you get from them, you are following information to deeper levels. You are
traveling into your unconscious, where your awareness is the flashlight.

When you see a person who is visibly sad or feeling bad in some way your first
impression is the Beta message. At this point you may make an association of someone
breaking up in a relationship. That does not mean that the sad person has just broken
up with someone, although it can. What it means is that you have started a flow of
associations. By starting that flow you begin to connect with that person empathically.

One of the most important points I can share with you about empathic
perceptions is that they are more likely to occur when there is a specific need
for them to occur. If the sad person who you saw was in significant distress and
needed help that you could offer, your flow of associations would rapidly take you to
that conclusion: to help. If you know the person and they are significant in your life, the
chance of getting specific information is greater. The need is established by the
relationship or by the level of distress.

The use of divination tools is another form of Beta messages. The use of tarot cards, for
example, is a way to utilize your Beta abilities. The cards serve as visible objects where
you can focus your mind and make empathic associations.

You will learn more about the use of tools in lesson seven.
At the Beta stage it is important to be alert, aware, and observant. The greater your
ability to concentrate and focus, the greater your mastery of Beta will be. Pay attention
to details without getting hung up on them. Take in your environment with open

Here is a personal example of how I have used Beta messages for my own situation.
Once when my daughter was about two years old, my wife and I had taken her to a
park. While my wife was pushing my daughter on a swing, I did my usual "Beta sweep"
of the park, concerned about any potential safety problems, in a park that occasionally
has transients hanging about.

With heightened awareness I simply did a gradual 360-degree turn, taking in everything
my senses could determine. I looked at the people, the trees, the cars, anything that
came into vision. In my sweep I saw a woman walking on a distant sidewalk. From the
visible level she appeared to be a fairly young, well-dressed, average woman walking
through the park. But that Beta message was filled with something else. I began
associating negative or unusual feelings to her.

From the visual level there was nothing wrong with her appearance or her activity. Still
a red flag went up inside of me once I caught sight of her. She was far enough away
that I could watch her without being rude. The negative feeling inside of me kept getting
stronger, like a radar signal that was strengthening. I watched as the woman walked
around the park and then turned, heading straight towards us. At this point my dream
voice was saying "red alert, red alert," but there was nothing obvious to go by.

The woman walked right up to me. Once I could see her eyes I saw that she appeared
distressed, confused, and possibly very unstable. Her body movements were slightly
distorted as she pointed to my child in the swing and asked, " Are you the father of that
child?" I simply answered, "Yes, I am." She did not appear to believe me for some
reason. She asked, "Are you sure?" I reassured her that I was the father of that child.

She made an odd face and then marched off to another couple with a baby. We never
did know for certain what she was up to or what was wrong with her but received ample
warning to be on the alert for her. It is my educated opinion that empathic abilities work
best when there is danger or urgency involved in a situation.

I shared this example with you to illustrate how a Beta message, something I saw with
my eyes, led to a deeper message (alpha). The more you are aware of what you see,
hear, smell, and touch, the more you will be able to link your senses to your empathic

Don't wait for some mysterious message or feeling to emerge in order to retrieve
empathic information. Simply look around you. Feel the environment around you with
your eyes. Do not put sensory information in a category separate from empathic
information. It is all one and the same, it's all information. Empathic information can
be enhanced by sensory information and sensory information can be enhanced by
empathic information.

At times sensory information and imagination act as a form of mental noise that makes
it hard for the beginning empath to process empathic information. Strong emotional
states can interfere with empathic reception. Imagined fears and intense desires are
also at work within your psyche.

This type of interference, or mental noise, is discussed in Lesson Five. Learning how to
discern empathic impressions from mental noise comes from practice, experience, and
increasing the connection with your inner empathic. Now, on to deeper levels of Beta.
Beta relates to empathic activity expressed through the physical body. Not only through
the physical senses but also through physical states. These states can be electrical,
chemical, or nuclear.

Empathic energy, or internally generated energy (innergy) is always present within you.
This energy can impact your physical, emotional, and mental state. It can also impact
the physical, emotional, and mental state of another person.

Whenever you extend your empathic energy outside of yourself to another person or an
object, this activity is called psychokinesis or telekinesis. Psychokinesis is intentionally
sent Beta energy. The origin of that intent can be either conscious or unconscious.

Unfortunately, movies and television have imprinted on most people the image of
psychokinesis (PK) as lifting large objects with the mind and flinging them across a
room. The dramatic portrayals of PK as superhuman and supernatural make it seem to
be the most unlikely of all empathic abilities. Yet it is very human and very accessible by

The best application for PK is through what has been popularly called empathic healing.
If you concentrate on another person you can send your own empathic energy to that
person. There are many people in the world who have devoted themselves to the idea of
healing and helping others. They have trained and conditioned their empathic energy to
work with thoughts of repair, regeneration, healing, love, and compassion.

When a healing empath concentrates on another person she is sending Beta messages
of healing, love, and compassion. For a healer to do this, their own body fills up with the
healing energy, their Beta state, with energy of love, healing, and compassion until it
over flows and transfers to another person. Which leads to another important point.

Can empathic energy be used to generate harm or negativity? First, look at how the
process works. The sender would have to first fill up with harmful and negative energy
until it overflowed. They would then have to be capable of directing that energy to
another person while consumed with the negativity.

Who would be the first victim of such an attack? You guessed it, the sender. It is not
impossible but the sender pays a great cost and is consumed by the energy before
being able to send it.

Generating a Beta Message

To generate a Beta message simply requires an action. Every action you take, no
matter how small, generates a Beta message. Your physical presence in a room
generates a Beta message. Beta energy is something you generate all the time to move
your body.

You can learn to generate Beta energy in more creative ways. Symbolic gestures
associated with specific intent can be very powerful Beta messages. For example, each
time you want to send healing energy you can touch your heart with your hands as you
focus on the target of your healing. Some people like to touch their forehead as they
concentrate on receiving empathic information. The classic images of witches and
magicians gesturing with specific intent certainly comes to mind when considering ways
to generate Beta messages.

Observe your own body language and expressive gestures to see how you are already
performing this empathic act. The type of gestures and movements you associate with
specific empathic functions should be unique and meaningful to you personally. With
practice you will find creative and meaningful movements which will evolve from your
own empathic practice. I have developed a system of hand gestures that communicate
dreamtongue messages; I call this system "xenchi" (zen chee), which is a course unto

Beta is the foundation for creative action or "ritual." Hand gestures, for example, are
Beta messages. If your hand gesture contains within it an Alpha message, or
association, regarding relaxation and calm, then you can send Beta energy to calm and
relax someone.

Creative actions or rituals generate a theme of Beta messages for specific goals:
healing, restoring, protecting, connecting, celebrating, sharing, etc. For example, an
empathic healer moving his or her hands over the area around someone's body to
generate healing energy, is what I mean by ritual. The moving around of the hands is
not really necessary but it acts as a Beta channel.

The most exciting action you can take to send a Beta message is one we normally take
for granted: The act of talking generates Beta messages. The power of the human voice
carries Beta signals. This also works the other way around. When someone is talking to
you they are sending you Beta messages.

Remember, Beta messages contain other messages within them. When someone speaks
to me, I get empathic impressions from their voice and their choice of words. This is an
area you can grow strong in as you advance in your development as an empath.

Last, but definitely not least, what you could call the "most empathic" level of Beta. It is
only the "most empathic" level in the traditional sense of what we think of as empathic
or even "psychic". Since Beta is essentially your body/mind, messages that originate
from within your unconscious, from the inner empathic, are felt within your body. This
form of Beta message takes the form of physical sensations and changes. Empaths are
all about feeling: not just emotionally but through physical states as well.

These Beta messages can be through: an increase or decrease in body temperature, an

increase or decrease in physical tension (such as around the stomach area), specific
sensations on the skin, tingling or pain in the body, an increase or decrease in sense of
weightiness (suddenly feeling heavier and slower, or feeling lighter and faster), and so

Beta is the level of "gut reactions," bodily responses to empathic perceptions. You may
not be consciously aware of what your body is responding to at first. Many years ago I
was at a Laundromat when this man walked in and sat down in a chair. There were
plenty of other people there and I had no response to them. But when he walked in my
whole body suddenly felt very heavy and slow. My stomach was tightening and my
whole body suddenly seemed to be rebelling against me.

When I looked at the man or was near him the feeling intensified. From the immediate
Beta level, what was visible to my eyes, he did not appear to stand out from any of the
other people in the Laundromat. Nevertheless, I could not stand to be around him. I
grabbed my clothes out of the washing machine and took them home wet. I did not
know why I had to leave but knew enough to trust what my body was telling me.

A week later I was driving down the road when an unmarked police car pulled me over. I
wasn't speeding and didn't have a clue why they were pulling me over. A detective came
up to my car window and mentioned my name and address, and asked if I was that
person. I said that I was. He then pulled out a photograph and asked me if I had ever
seen the person in the picture. Guess who it was! You got it, the man from the

It turns out that he was waiting in the Laundromat to get up the nerve to rob the bank
right next to it. He was armed and dangerous. You might be wondering how the
detectives knew I had been at the Laundromat. Could they be Empaths as well? It turns
out that I had thrown away some mail at the Laundromat, which of course, had my
address on it. They had gone through the trash after the robbery looking for clues.

The moral of the story is: your body is just as much a part of your empathic mind as
any other part. Pay attention to feelings and responses within your body. When
someone is intending to do harm or has a strong potential to do harm, they are sending
out intense Beta signals.

Beta messages through the body are especially strong when there is danger or
imminent threat near you. I personally believe that empathic abilities are natural
skills primarily developed for the purposes of safety and protection. Eventually our
culture will recognize that and we will develop greater means of protection and security.

Although Beta messages through the body tend to be uniquely patterned around the
individual, there are some general patterns for you to learn. The most consistent
pattern deals with feelings of expansiveness versus feelings of contraction.

Feelings of contraction, drawing in, closing up, tightening, usually occur in response to a
negative or harmful influence. It can be from the presence of danger or from the
presence of something or someone you just do not like. How your body responds to
your environment is determined by your perceptions, beliefs, and general feelings.

Feelings of expansion, opening up, relaxing, usually occur in response to a positive or

pleasant influence. Some people begin to feel "giddy", restless, or excited before
receiving some good news or encountering a much-desired event or person.

Areas of empathic sensitivity vary from person to person, but common areas for Beta
body messages are the

 temples & forehead,

 the back of the neck,

 the throat,

 the chest,

 and the stomach.

Pretty much down the center of the body following the path of the spine. The spine
carries the central nervous system down from the brain to the rest of the body and
serves as the pathway for empathic information.

Some empathic traditions of yoga have identified seven empathic centers in the spine.
These seven centers have been called "chakras." The way people tend to receive Beta
body messages along the center of the body appears to correlate fairly well with the
idea of the seven empathic centers.

The Tattwas, like the for example, are said to be geometric shapes that are genetically
programmed into the central nervous system that stimulate the empathic centers.
Visually focusing on a given Tattwa or visualizing a Tattwa, is said to stimulate the
particular energy of that shape. The yellow square is related to Beta energy, which is
how empathic information is generated externally and received internally through the

At this point you should have an initial understanding of Beta, the first letter of the
empathic alphabet. Remember, you are learning the alphabet first. As you learn the
other four empathic letters, your understanding will grow as you see how they combine
and interact to form the empathic language.

Through Beta you can see that your very environment speaks to you in Dreamtongue, a
silent language that forms from the actions, events, and objects around you. To an
empath the movement of the world itself is poetry, is a language far beyond words and

I have talked to you about getting signals from the actions and words of people, but the
fullness of Dreamtongue comes from looking at a beautiful sky, a sunset over water, a
field of wild flowers, an intense thunderstorm, etc. When you begin to observe the world
around you, listening to what it is saying to you, you will begin to hear the language of

In hearing the language you will also feel it. In feeling the empathic language you will
learn to interpret it and to speak it. I wrote the Book of Storms in dreamtongue
language and continue to be amazed by the power of it.

Stage Three Review

1. The goal of stage three is to understand what Beta is and what forms a Beta message
can take.

2. Beta is the body/mind as a whole unit, the container of the entire empathic process.

3. A Beta message is any information that can be perceived through the primary senses.

4. Beta energy is empathic energy that is generated by a person and is normally called
psychokinesis, or PK.

5. Beta energy or PK can be used for healing or influencing objects & people.

6. A Beta message contains all the other levels of empathic information.

7. Internal empathic impressions form external Beta messages in the body through
feelings and sensations.

8. Understanding Dreamtongue begins by learning to observe and listen to the world

around you.

elopment as a fully actualized Empath.

Stage Four
Developing Empathic Sensitivity

In Lesson three you learned about Beta and Beta messages.

You learned that your mind/body is your primary Empathic
instrument and that all activity around you are Beta messages. You speak with Beta
through your body and your movements.

Each Beta message contains potential Empathic information and how you respond to
that Empathic information depends upon how you view your world. Life itself is a flow of
Beta activity and you yourself can generate Beta energy to heal and shape the life
around you.

In short, you have learned your first Empathic letter and are now ready for your second.
Be patient with yourself as you move through this material. What you learn in each
stage will expand as you move through the stage following it. Progress at your own rate
and relax into the experience.

You are now entering stage four of your preliminary training as an empath. As far as the
information part goes, we are leaving the familiar waking world of Beta and are entering
into the classical domain of "the Empathic." If I were to discuss Beta and Alpha as
territories I would describe Beta as the outermost rim of the territory, the external
world, and Alpha as the vast expanse of your interior landscape.

Alpha is the internal world of your psyche. It is the place of dreams,

imagery, memory, myth, emotion, and shadows. Where Beta is the
bright yellow light of the Sun enclosed by the four sides of a square,

Alpha is the light reflected from the surface of the Moon, apas
symbolized in a silver crescent. The silver crescent is an excellent
symbol for Alpha the unconscious.

The Moon reflects the light of the Sun but is covered in partial darkness from a shadow.
The partial Moon light of the crescent represents the partial consciousness of Alpha and
the shadow over the Moon suggests the presence of the unconscious.

An Alpha state occurs when you slow your brain waves down to around 8 to 13 cycles
per second. This can be done by closing your eyes and relaxing. Visualizing a peaceful
scene and taking a few deep breaths will take you even deeper into Alpha. Alpha is just
under the surface of your waking mind and is always available to you.

A common, yet outdated , term for Empathic ability is "the sixth sense." This implies
one more sense past the five primary senses. In fact we really have more than five
primary senses. In addition to sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell, we have a
kinesthetic sense which detects movement and body orientation.

There are even subtler senses within the body. All of these senses form a ladder that
extends down into the unconscious levels of the mind. For now, I will keep the primary
senses lumped into the first five of Beta and refer to Alpha as the sixth sense.

Alpha as the sixth sense acts like a compass or divining rod within your
body/mind. It generates vague or undefined information that can create a sense of a
push or a pull within you. A pull would be a desire to move toward something, a push
would be a reaction to move back from something or someone.

Remember my story about the bank robber? In Dreamtongue the Beta message was " a
man in the Laundromat," but within that Beta signal was an Alpha message as well. The
Alpha message was a pushing away, a desire to get away from that man. It was an
Alpha message because it did not come with explicit instructions or explanations.
I did not get a Empathic news flash saying, "Attention. Attention. That man has a gun
and is dangerous. He is about to rob the bank next door." Instead my body translated
the Alpha message of something wrong into a Beta message of a sense of heaviness
and constriction in my body. Here you can see how Beta and Alpha work together.

As you advance through this training you will learn how all five levels are not at all
separate and distinct. They are really a continuum, a ladder of consciousness. You are
learning each one separately in order to strengthen your understanding of each level.

In the language of Dreamtongue Alphas are hunches, intuitions, general feelings,

inclinations, unexplained reactions/responses. If an Alpha message is strong enough it
will push its way up (or out) through the body and become a Beta message.

Whether a Empathic message is heard as an Alpha or a Beta depends upon two things:

(1) You as an individual. Are you more aware of your feelings or your body states, or

(2) The intensity and importance of the message.

You are continuously receiving Alpha messages throughout your day. Not all of them are
important enough to signal you through your body, unless you are an extremely
sensitive to your body states. If you are a person who tends to not really pay attention
to your body states or feelings, then you may not be noticing Alpha or Beta messages.

Have you ever walked in to a place and thought, "I have a bad feeling about this?", or ,
" I have a good feeling about this?" If so, then you were acknowledging an Alpha

Alpha is the level of Empathic impressions. These impressions are usually not very
clear or distinctive and therefore require interpretation. It is in the process of
interpreting Empathic impressions that many people lose the message or reach
inaccurate conclusions.

In this chapter I will provide you with information that will help you work in a focused
way with Alpha messages. Some of this information will require that you practice certain
skills. How often you practice will be determined by your desire and your schedule.
Needless to say, the more you practice the better the results.

Alpha is also the "emotional level," in the same way that Beta is the "physical
level." Empathic messages come in through emotional responses. The distinction
between a normal emotional reaction and an Alpha message depends on what is
occurring around you.

If you get upset because someone is yelling at you then that is a normal emotional
reaction. If you think of something upsetting and then you get upset, that is a normal
emotional reaction. If you are talking to friend and enjoying yourself, and then for no
apparent reason you get upset - that could be an Alpha message.

Here's an example: Several years ago, I was walking through the mall doing some
shopping. It was a nice day and I was feeling carefree. As I was walking, thinking about
different stores and getting a bite to eat, a feeling of intense sadness "fell" over me. It
was sudden and strong. I had to sit on a bench to try to figure out what was happening.
I reviewed everything that I could think of: was there something worrying me- no, was
there a problem I was putting off - no, could I think of anything that was making me
sad - no. So I decided I should go home to see if I could determine what was wrong.
When I got home I could not find my cat Leto, one of a set of twins. I was very fond of
my twin kitties Leto and Ghanima. Eventually I found him dead under the bushes by my

There was no evidence of what had killed him. He had been fine before I left that
morning. I had felt the time of his death when I was at the mall. The sadness that came
over me, unprovoked, was a strong Alpha message. Unfortunately, Alpha messages are
not usually clear enough to know what to do. It will be through Theta and Delta that you
will learn about the direct and distinctive Empathic messages.

The Alpha level relates to overall Empathic sensitivity. Here I would like to give
you a working definition for Empathic sensitivity. This part is a little complicated but
very useful to learn. Learning about the nature of Empathic sensitivity will help anyone
who feels they have trouble accessing Empathic information.

Normal sensitivity is measured in thresholds. Sensitivity to touch, to temperature, and

to pain is measured by how much of each stimulus is needed before a person can feel
that stimulus. The point where there is enough pressure or stimulation to feel the touch,
heat, pain, etc., is the threshold.

Alpha messages originate from within you due to some distant or unapparent
stimulation or pressure. The amount of "internal pressure" required in order for you to
recognize a Empathic message is your Alpha threshold. It is your Alpha threshold that
determines your level of Empathic sensitivity. This threshold varies throughout the day
and can vary from day to day.

Empathic sensitivity can be developed as a skill. You can expand your Alpha
threshold which, in turn, increases your Empathic sensitivity. This is the essence of
stage four of your training. To expand your Empathic sensitivity you must first learn how
to compare Alpha with Beta states.

Beta and Alpha act as mirror images of each other. They are like the Sun and the Moon,
with the Moon reflecting the light of the Sun. Beta takes signals in to your body/mind
and Alpha receives signals internally from within your unconscious. Beta information is
encoded by your senses but Alpha is information not perceived by your senses.

The lack of sensory input is what makes Alpha messages difficult to recognize
and interpret. If you cannot see it, hear it, or touch it, how can you know what it is?
What is missing is the means for the Alpha message to get encoded into some usable

Alpha messages are encoded by associations. Remember from chapter two: the
associational centers form the channel between the conscious mind and the unconscious
mind. This is the place where the small still voice within originates. The dialogue inside
this channel is the dream voice, the place where Dreamtongue occurs. Alpha is the
whisper of your dream voice. Alpha messages are harnessed by forming associations to
other information, especially symbolic imagery.

Forming associations to Empathic impressions is the key skill of the empath.

When an Alpha message arises within you and you do not immediately recognize it's
purpose, you can make associations with it and discover its meaning. This is done much
like the process of what is called "free association." Free association works by having
someone present words to you one at a time and you say whatever comes to mind
without censoring.

I have used the free association method with students for over thirty years now and
have found it to be very effective for developing Empathic sensitivity. I have students
stand one at a time before the class. The students remaining in their seats have the
task of focusing on the person in the front of the room and allowing whatever
impressions to form.

The actual exercise involves speaking out loud, calling out any imagery that forms
without censoring. Of course, I recommend some common courtesy and common sense
here. I discourage statements of impending doom or statements that are
embarrassingly intimate.

What normally happens is people call out one word responses and someone writes these
associations down into a list. Occasionally, a sentence, a description, or an image comes
through. Then the person who patiently stood in front of the room while everyone
"read" them gets to review the list and make comments about the
associations/impressions. This is a practice I recommend in Dreamtongue study groups
called "echos" (empath circles).

Here is the vital point: the purpose of the exercise is not to extract Empathic
information, although that certainly does happen. The purpose is to learn how to make
associations readily and at will. You simply open your thoughts up by allowing images,
words, descriptors, to come to mind without censoring them.

Here are the guidelines for developing your Empathic sensitivity by practicing
Alpha associations.

Alpha Associating Exercise

1. Sit in a comfortable position so that you are reasonably relaxed. Remember,

relaxing slows down your brain to an Alpha level.

2. Focus on an object or person. If the object or person is in front of you, then you look
at the target without paying attention to details. You simply take in the overall image
without focusing on a specific part of the target. Remember you are not looking for
information with your eyes. Some people prefer to close their eyes during this part but
that is a matter of personal preference. You can even hold an object in your hand to
practice associating. When you Alpha associate while holding or touching something it is
called "psychometry."

3. Allow thoughts, words, pictures, etc. to come to mind without censoring them. Do not
decide which thoughts are Empathic and which ones are not. If you do that, then you
are censoring and that impedes the process. Just let whatever pops into your mind to
come forward. The skill of Alpha associating develops by actually speaking the
associations out loud or by writing them down. To keep from being slowed down you
might want to use a tape recorder or have someone write your associations down.

4. The "knack" or skill comes by catching the very first impressions, the more
immediate the associations the better. Any time spent on analyzing or judging the
associations cuts off the Alpha message. Receiving and interpreting Empathic
information are two different functions. For the beginner it is very difficult to perform
these two functions at the same time. For the sake of practice, do your receiving and
your interpreting separately. Do not strain to "get" information. Empathic information is
immediate. It's already there. Your only work is to retrieve it.
5. Do not spend too long on any one target. Do your focusing and associating for a
period of five to ten minutes at the very most.

6. After you are done associating then review your list of impressions. It is at this point
that you can evaluate or analyze the information for content. If there is no Empathic
content then do not worry, the purpose of the exercise is to develop the skill of Alpha
associating. When there is a Empathic message that needs to come through then this
skill will be invaluable.

You are successful with Alpha associating when you allow impressions to form
without censoring them. As you increase your ability to make Alpha associations your
Empathic sensitivity increases. Your Empathic sensitivity is measured by the extent of
your ability to make Alpha associations.

Alpha messages normally come to you when there is a need for you to know something.
That need is determined by your interest in the information and the seriousness of the
information. If someone you know really wants or needs to get in touch with you, their
feelings will generate a Beta message (remember: Empathic energy generated and sent
out is a form of Beta).

Your reception of that message can occur at any level. If the person sending you the
signal is in distress, then you might receive the message at a Beta level, with a physical
reaction - let's say, a constriction in the chest. If the signal is not that strong, the
emotions are not that intense, then you might receive the message at the Alpha level.
As an Alpha message it might come as a vague feeling of "something you need to do,"
or a general feeling that pulls you in the direction of that person.

One woman told me about the time when a friend of hers was in town, but her friend
could not reach her by phone. She said that she decided that day to go out to lunch to a
restaurant that she had never gone to before. She didn't know why but she really
wanted to go there. When she got there she saw her out of town friend and they
connected. The feeling or desire to go to that restaurant was the Alpha message. The
out of town friend sent out a signal by wanting to make contact and the receiver
responded by going to the same restaurant on the same day.

By contrast, if someone just says to you, "If you're Empathic, then read my mind," or
something to the equivalent, there may not be a real need which generates Empathic
activity. For some, the need to prove themselves may be strong enough, and sometimes
the person making the challenge may actually have a need that is coming through in
that moment. Empathic connections can be very intimate and not everyone will allow
that intimacy - either consciously or unconsciously.

Alpha messages are the most common Empathic events. They occur all day and
every day. Most of them are minor and never really surface into your awareness. Some
are very useful and make developing your Alpha skills a practical matter. Alpha as your
whispering dream voice is usually trying to tell you something that you can use.

Many times have I been searching for an address while in my car and I come to an
intersection not sure of which way to turn. At that point I get a feeling of a pull to turn
left. My dream voice is saying," turn left, turn left." My intellect is saying, "no turn right,
the information that I have suggests that I turn right."

How many times have you been in that situation? The intellect is usually loud and clear.
The dream voice is soft and easily drowned out. I have learned many lessons the hard
way by ignoring the Alpha message and going the wrong direction.
There is what I call a cliché in psychic development classes about teaching the act of
"creating parking spaces." As I mentioned earlier, I do not think you want to take on the
formidable task of psychically lifting and moving an automobile. Instead, you can let
your Alpha sense guide you to an area where someone is getting ready to leave and
take that space. Your Alpha sense will guide you and pull you in a desired direction if
you let it. Let's keep ourselves grounded.

Alphas can also guide you in decision making of all types. It is at this point that I
instruct students to keep in mind that Empathic ability is merely one of their many
abilities. Empathic ability is not to be your sole resource and method of operations.

You can gather facts through your waking mind, to analyze, evaluate, and use those
facts through your intellect. Your Empathic nature can greatly enhance your intellectual
skills but should not be used as a replacement for them. The most effective Empaths are
the ones who integrate empathic ability with all of their other cognitive functions.

Alpha messages can guide you in communicating with others, either through
speaking or writing. When you are talking with someone, pay attention to the Alpha
messages you are getting during the conversation. Keep in mind that Alphas are not
clear messages but instead are inclinations, pushes, and pulls.

Your skill at using Alphas will be influenced by your ability to recognize your own
emotional states and needs. If you are talking with someone who you are angry with,
regarding a specific situation, then the anger that you might feel during the
conversation is not an Alpha message.

Being unclear about what is and what is not an Alpha message leads to many wrong
conclusions. If you relax while you are talking to that person you can open up your
Alpha sensitivity to them and get the signals you need to communicate more effectively.
I will teach you an empathic breathing technique in the next lesson which will help you
move into a relaxed Alpha state no matter where you are.

Your understanding of Beta and Alpha will expand as you learn the deeper Empathic
senses in the following lessons. In order to complete your fourth stage of training and to
prepare for the following stages you need to start a journal. Get a notebook or blank
book of some sort. Label it "Dreamtongue Journal."

After you finish this chapter make your first entry into the journal. Write in it what you
have learned so far about Dreamtongue, about Beta and Alpha. As you do this, do not
write the words Beta and Alpha, instead use the Empathic alphabet:

for Beta use for Alpha use

If you can turn these "thoughts" into NONVERBAL thoughts by using symbols instead of
words, then you are already developing the ability to speak and understand
Begin to record times when you experience or have experienced Beta messages through
your body, have generated healing or mental influence, and Alpha messages of all

Practice Alpha associating and record the experience in your Dreamtongue journal. Pay
attention to your dreams and enter them in the journal. Observe the world with its
many wonders and problems, and record your observations and responses. This is your
journal as an empath.

Even though you will complete the ninth stage of your preliminary training as you
complete the ninth lesson, keep this journal for at least a year's time. Treat it as an
important part of your development.

It will become a mirror of your growth and as well as a source of additional information
from hidden levels. Information that you may not be aware of during your writing will
become apparent when you read back over your journal later on. Now let's review.

Stage Four Review

1. The Alpha level is the beginning of the classical psychic domain. The goal of this
stage is to increase your Empathic sensitivity.

2. Alpha acts like an inner compass or divining rod, guiding you with feelings, hunches,
inner pushes and pulls.

3. Alpha is the level of Empathic impressions. These Empathic impressions are not clear
and distinctive at this level of reception.

4. Alpha is more the emotional level, in the same way that Beta is more the physical
level of Empathic functioning.

5. Empathic sensitivity can be measured by the extent to which you make Alpha

6. Empathic sensitivity can be developed as a skill.

7. The Alpha associating exercise is described in this chapter. Regular practice with this
exercise can lead to greater degrees of Empathic sensitivity.

8. Alpha messages are more likely to occur when there is a need for information.

9. Alpha messages can be used in decision making and in communicating, along with
other intellectual abilities and sound judgment.

10. Completing stage four of empath training includes beginning a Dreamtongue journal
for at least a year.

Stage 5
Connecting To Your Inner Empath

You now have the basic tools of an empath: awareness of the Beta and Alpha skills.
From chapter four you have gained information about Alpha messages and empath
sensitivity. You were introduced to the process of Alpha associating, allowing
impressions to forms spontaneously without censoring.

With just the first two empath letters you can begin to recognize and identify the
language of Dreamtongue as it happens around you. The silent but powerful
language is being spoken by everything around you. It is flowing from every
person you meet, usually without his or her awareness of it.

Dreamtongue passes into your being and resonates deep within your psyche. You
generate the empath language at all times, it flows from your center out through your
mind/body into the world around you. To communicate with Dreamtongue requires that
you look at life with the "eyes of an empath."

All of life is a language. Every living thing, every event and action, every object in
existence is a part of that language. The movement and the relationship between every
single thing are the silent words of Dreamtongue. You hear this language with your
heart, speak it with your soul, and your thoughts can be the channel between the two.


Theta is the channel between your innermost empath sense and your outermost
awareness. Whether or not Theta will someday be identified with a specific organ in the
brain, like the pineal gland, the hippocampus, or the hypothalamus or if it remains
simply as a "construct", is not important to your training as an empath.

It will eventually happen that science will "discover" empath abilities and will link them
to specific parts of the brain. I project that empath abilities will be related to every part
of the brain but will be specifically connected to the brain stem area, the amygdala, and
the limbic system; areas that are tied into emotional responses, as well as general body
responses. To become an empath only requires that you are aware of your empath
center, or the inner empath as I call it in this course.

The purpose of this chapter is to increase awareness of your own empath center and to
strengthen your connection to it. Of course you are already connected to your inner
empath, so what has to be developed is enhanced awareness and skills for
strengthening that connection.

Theta awareness is deeper within your body/mind than Beta and Alpha, it is in your
unconscious mind. Beta is your waking state, Alpha takes place just below your waking
state, but Theta is normally only available to you during sleep. In Theta your brain
waves slow way down to around 4 to 7 cycles per second.

You can consciously reach Theta through a profound meditational state with discipline
and practice. I teach a specific type of meditation for Empaths called "focus sitting,"
which helps you maintain a direct channel to Theta. Yet there are other ways to access
Theta and learning those other ways is the goal of stage five of your training.
Theta is the level of vivid dreaming. When you are asleep and in a Theta state, R.E.M.
(rapid eye movement) occurs as you dream. In Theta your body/mind takes everything
that is going on within it and uses that material to produce a dream.

Dreams are the result of physiological states, mental and emotional states, memories,
imagination, and empathic states. All of these states weave together into a tapestry we
call dreams. Some dreams occur at the Alpha level and have that Alpha vagueness
about them. Alpha dreams are general feelings and reactions, indistinct images, etc.
Theta dreams are typically the vivid dreams that seem very real and colorful.

Dream research shows that everyone dreams every night and that all dreams are
typically in color. The problem for some people is that they do not remember their
dreams and/or do not remember the color. Memory of dreaming or the colors in the
dream are often lost by the time a person wakes up. The place where this dream
activity occurs is the Theta level.

Theta is the level where inner impressions and activities form into composite images
and ideas. It is in Theta where the more defined empathic messages are available. A
Theta message usually occurs as a thought that enters your awareness. "Oh, I need to
call John," or "The phone is going to ring," or "This person is from Arkansas." Theta
messages are basically specific by design. By specific I do not mean always exact. By
specific I mean that there is more content to the message than just a general feeling.

One morning I ran into a friend that I had not seen in a while. We hugged and greeted
each other. During the hug the thought popped into my mind, "She has been out west."
I had no conscious reason for thinking that thought. There were no visible (beta) signs.
So I asked her and she said yes, that she had just returned the day before. There was
specific information but the exact state was not named. I have had countless
experiences where the exact information was named but that is not always the case.
This is an example of a Theta message.

Theta is the level of telepathy, for lack of a better word. The working definition for
telepathy is mind-to-mind communication, or what I believe is more accurate:
nervous_system-to-nervous_system communication. Telepathy occurs as two living
things link up with each other at an empathic or unconscious level. Telepathy does not
mean that you are reading a person's mind, like reading a ticker tape print out. There
can be word for word communication but the more common type of telepathy involves
just getting the same emotions and overall ideas of another person.

The sender of the message (either intentional or unintentional) may be thinking of you
but not know how to reach you. You, as the receiver of the message may get a body
sensation as a response to that message but would probably not notice it; you might
get an Alpha response but it could be too vague to understand, if the message is
persistent and you are paying attention, then you may have a Theta response in the
form of a thought, "I need to call John." This whole process involves a telepathic
connection but is not called telepathy until the thought occurs which encodes the

Telepathy includes the sending as well as the receiving of messages. As an

empath you will learn to do both. How well you send or receive depends a lot on your
personality. A person who is a good listener and is sensitive to the feelings of others
tends to be a good receiver. A person who is easily distracted and is not really interested
in other people's thoughts and feelings generally has difficulty receiving.

When a person is self-absorbed they have difficulty receiving. At any given moment
when you are exclusively focused on one thing or activity, you may not notice a
telepathic message. Sending a telepathic message only requires that you think of the
person you are sending it to while you focus on the thought. The more connected you
feel to the person while you are sending the thought, the more direct the message will

The type of relationship you have with the sender/receiver also determines the quality
of the telepathy. The closer you are to someone emotionally the greater your telepathic
connections. If you feel comfortable being close to someone, you are more likely to
experience a telepathic connection with that person. That is why if strangers asks you to
"be telepathic" with them, the connection may be elusive as you may not be
comfortable being so intimate with a stranger.

Telepathic connections are very intimate. This is why you always hear of mothers
detecting their child in distress or lovers doing the same. If a stranger comes up to you
and asks you to read their mind, there is very little connection between the two of you
for any telepathy to occur. Empath abilities work by their own natural laws and
understanding these laws will help you to function as an empath. Theta messages are
determined by the strength and quality of the relationship between two or more people.

As I said before, Theta messages have content that is specific but not always exact.
Since Theta messages originate from within your unconscious without the benefit of the
eyes or ears they are not encoded into clear signals. The empath mind encodes them
with the associations you form, either consciously or unconsciously.

The big difference between Alpha and Theta comes with how associations are made. In
Alpha you learn to make empath associations consciously. In Theta the associations
are already made at an unconscious level that rise up to the conscious mind.
Your unconscious encodes the message using whatever materials are available to it, just
like it does when you are dreaming. Functioning in a pure empath state, Theta is like
dreaming while you are awake.

Your unconscious tends to be very creative when encoding information. It relies on

symbology, analogy, myth, beliefs, perceptions, feelings, memories, imagination, ideas,
and even special effects, in order to paint a Theta message for you. Imagery that is
symbolic rather than actual is Theta imagery.

Let's say you are out driving around when someone at your house tries to send you a
message to pick up a gallon of milk. You know by now that the message they are
sending out is a Beta signal. If you receive that signal at the Theta level, through
telepathy, it may take a variety of forms. It may come through clearly as the thought,
"Hey, I need to stop and the store and buy a gallon of milk." It may come through
partially, "I think I need to stop at the store," with no particular thought about the milk.
The intent may not come through; you might just start thinking about the person
sending the message without associating any information.

It is possible to be unaware of the telepathy. You might pull into a store parking lot,
walk into the store and go up to the dairy section without really thinking about what you
are doing. The message could be encoded symbolically where you suddenly start
thinking about dairy cows but you do not make any associations with the information.
You get home and tell the sender that you were just thinking about dairy cows. They tell
you," I have just been trying and trying to send you a message to pick up a gallon of

Theta is the level where empath impressions are encoded and the place where telepathy
is processed. In Alpha the dream voice is heard as a faint and distant whisper. Theta is
the dream voice, the voice of your inner empath. In Beta the dream voice is not heard
at all, only felt through the body. In Alpha the dream voice is faint and often drowned
out by the mental noise of Beta. In a pure Theta state the voice would be loud and clear.
The problem for you and me is that we are normally trying to hear the dream voice
while awake, in a Beta or Alpha state. What is needed is a stronger connection to the
inner empath

There are two methods you can use to strengthen your connection to Theta: reducing
mental noise and using an "empath totem."

First let's look at mental noise and how to manage it. I say "manage" because you will
never completely get rid of mental noise. Mental noise is all of the activity of your
waking mind. It is every conscious thought, perception, feeling, and reaction what is
going on at the Beta level. Mental noise is generally very loud and distracting in contrast
with the quiet soft nature of your dream voice. Mental noise can be any or all of the

1. What you are actively seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and tasting at any
given moment creates mental noise. If you are trying to listen to your dream voice
and someone is revving up a motorcycle outside your window, that sound creates a lot
of mental noise from your reaction to it. Until you learn to follow these Beta signals
down to deeper levels, they tend to be very distracting and drown out the dream voice
of Theta.

2. Your conscious thoughts act as mental noise. When you are analyzing, judging,
evaluating, and trying to interpret information, this creates mental noise. Critical
thoughts are mental noise. Self-criticism is the most oppressive form of mental noise.
Thoughts of "I can't do this," " This is pointless," "This is something only other people
can do," are the most distracting forms of mental noise.

3. Imagined impressions are also mental noise. Imagination is very useful in

empathic functioning because it serves as an endless reservoir of imagery. Through
imagination you are able to make Alpha associations, which is a way to mentally feel
around in the unconscious, searching for empath content. Imagination is material that is
fashioned by your psyche. Anything fashioned by your imagination has the potential to
encode empath content.

Do not be afraid of imagination, it is not the nemesis of empath evidence. Imagination is

a powerful ability that can be utilized in many ways. I will give you an example of this in
the following discussion of "empath totems." Still, imagination can also generate mental
noise. When your imagination generates images that do not have empath content, then
it is mental noise.

4. Memories can also act as mental noise. Remembered impressions can interfere
with empathic impressions. If you are empathically trying to determine what to get a
loved one as a gift, and the memory of all the things you've gotten before, or the
memory of things they've told you keeps popping up, this acts as mental noise which
drowns out the empathic information available through Theta.

Typically these four types of mental noise are all happening together in one big mesh of
mental distraction. The Beta mind is a busy place with heavy traffic. The next important
skill for an empath is to learn how to manage mental noise.

Managing Mental Noise

Apart from practicing overall stress management, taking good care of yourself, and
having private time to reflect on your life, the best way to manage mental noise is to
create a conditioned relaxation response within yourself.

There are many advanced ways of creating a relaxation response within yourself, but I
offer here a simple method useful for Empaths. I call this exercise , "empathic

1. Set aside 10 to 20 minutes a day for empath breathing.

2. Be consistent and do not skip days. Under even the worst conditions you can squeeze
in 5 minutes for the exercise.

3. Practice the exercise when you are awake and alert. Do not do it right before going to
sleep or within the first fifteen minutes of waking up.

4. Practice the exercise where you feel you have enough privacy and with the least
amount of distraction. Do not try this exercise with the television on or where you can
hear human voices. Hearing people talking is very distracting.

5. Sit in a comfortable position where you can hold your spine erect. Do not strain or sit
stiffly. Make sure pillows support you (or a chair) and that you feel stable before you

6. The exercise is very simple; it involves counting your inhalations and your
exhalations. Learning empathic breathing prepares you to learn the focused sitting
meditation I mentioned earlier. Your first goal is to be able to do three sets of ten
breaths. When you first start this you may not be able to do all of the breaths in perfect
order. You will build up to this in time. Do not strain or do anything that makes you feel
uncomfortable. Relax and breathe normally between breaths when you need to.

7. Your second goal is to be able to take long slow breaths that start in the diaphragm
and fill up to your chest. This inhalation is then held to the count of four and is followed
by a long slow exhalation.

8. The first breath begins by inhaling slowly through your nostrils, filling your lungs from
the "bottom up." Fill up your lungs without straining. When your lungs are full then hold
the breath to the count of four. Exhale slowly by pursing your lips and blowing out a
long silent whistle. Empty your lungs as much as possible without straining. When your
lungs are empty hold to the count of four again. This counts as one breath.

9. Repeat for up to ten breaths. Controlling and counting the breaths develops the
concentration and focus that you need in order to manage mental noise. When you first
do this you may only be able to do one set of ten breaths. You may not even be able to
do ten breaths, so do what you can. Whatever you do will start to work for you. It is
important that you do not do anything that will make you uncomfortable. The idea is to
relax and work with your breathing. Your breathing becomes something you are
creating and refining. Each time you sit you work on improving your breathing and
learning to relax into the experience.

10. Your eventual goal is to perform three full sets of ten breaths. You can do more sets
if it suits your capacity. As you do your sets count your breaths and keep your thoughts
focused on the count. Other thoughts and images will come into your mind, simply let
them be. Do not try to do anything with those thoughts and images.
11. Sometimes you will find yourself traveling through different states of consciousness
while you do this. Other times you will stay in a Beta state throughout the exercise.

Empath breathing is one of the best things you can do for yourself for many reasons. It
will help you learn to manage your mental noise and it will help you increase your
overall energy level as well. After you have practiced empathic breathing for a period of
time, which differs from person to person, you will be able to literally turn down the
mental noise in your head by taking ten breaths and counting each one.

Empath Totems

Another way to strengthen the connection to your inner empath is to work with an
empath totem. An empath totem is a symbol that you choose to represent your own
empath nature. It can be in any form you select with no limits. It is only important that
the symbol have meaning and connection for you. It becomes your logo as an
empath. In the same way that European families had family shields and crests
representing their lineage, an empath can establish a totem to represent their particular
link to the empath levels.

An empath totem is formulated at the Theta level, using symbology and association. Yet
all levels of the empath are incorporated into the totem. To choose a totem simply
requires that it be the one you desire, you feel connected to, that has meaning for you,
and that it feels right.

Totems can evolve, change, grow, diversify, and transform. Whatever totem you choose
now for your empath training will go through many stages of development as you grow
in your life. The totem acts as a mirror of sorts reflecting the obvious and hidden parts
of your psyche. It grows and changes as you grow and change. It becomes the
connection to your empath self and acts as an extension of you. It is one of the most
beautiful and powerful of the tools available to Empaths. Many fascinating uses and
experiences with totems have been shared with me over the years.

A totem does not need to be secret but it does need to be sacred or special. It is a tool
that is empowered when you treat it with respect and with purpose. It can be an
abstract symbol, it can be a traditional symbol; it can be represented by an animal -
real or "imaginary," It can be mythological or entirely created by your imagination. It
will be the vessel into which your empath nature will flow. A totem acts as a tangible or
visible connector to your essentially invisible empathic nature.

Select a totem in your own time. You may already have one in mind or you may
need to work on it for a while. You may be drawn to a totem by an Alpha or Beta
message, or it may come to you through a dream. Once you have selected your totem
you can begin to take steps to externalize it. You can externalize your totem in different
ways. You can obtain pictures that have your totem in them. You can obtain objects,
jewelry, and decorations of your totem.

You can create your totem through any type of medium you desire. After a while, your
totem will take on a life of it's own directed by and connected with your own empath
nature. Eventually you will be able to retrieve empath impressions through your totem.
In this capacity your totem can act as a Guide. Just having a totem acts as a grounding
mechanism for your empath nature, energizing you and reinforcing the connection with
your Theta level.

Record the selection of your totem in your dreamtongue journal. Also indicate in your
journal your empathic breathing sessions. You may just want to record how long the
session was but it would better serve your training record if you were to record your
response to each session for the first three months. After three months empathic
breathing will become a natural skill for you and you could just comment on it as you

This completes the fifth stage of your preliminary training. At this point you have many
thoughts and activities in motion that are shaping your development.

Before closing this chapter I want to share one very intense Theta experience, where
imagery was used in a symbolic fashion. Alpha and Beta impressions were also involved,
but the Theta image was very clear.

Back in 1978 I was sitting in a meditation group. We sat in a circle in a quiet room
meditating together for about an hour. I was relaxed and was calmly observing images
as they passed through my mind. Suddenly the outlined images of a map appeared in
my mind. It looked like an outline of the southern portions of the U.S. and the northern
portions of South America.

The image stayed in place and I became intrigued. A red spot appeared on the map
near the South American portion. I watched as the red spot grew larger and larger. It
was as clear as if I were watching it on TV. The spot grew into a large and vicious
looking dragon. The dragon became larger than the map as it twisted and growled
fiercely. An intense feeling of horror and grief flashed through my body like a gust of
wind. Then the image and the feeling disappeared.

When the meditation was over I shared the images with friends but no one could offer
any explanations. I did not have any further feelings or information about it. So I went
home that night and turned on the TV. Within minutes of turning on the TV news bulletin
came on showing Jonestown, Guyana. They described the discovery of more than 900
bodies and the nightmare that had taken place. The time that this discovery was made
was the same time that I was seeing the image of the dragon.

I have never forgotten that experience. Many such events in my life have caused me to
lose interest in debating with people about the existence of empath phenomenon.

Stage Five Review

1. The goal of stage five is to learn about accessing Theta messages and to learn how to
strengthen your connection to Theta (the inner empath).

2. Learning Dreamtongue involves looking at the world through the "eyes of an

empath," seeing that all life is language.

3. Theta acts as an inner channel between your outermost and innermost senses.

4. Theta is normally only available to you while you sleep and dream.

5. Theta messages typically occur as thoughts and symbolic information.

6. Telepathy is a Theta function. Telepathy occurs when two living things link up in some
form of relationship.

7. The ability of sending and receiving in telepathy is shaped by the personality of the
sender and receiver.
8. The relationship between the sender and receiver will determine the strength and
quality of the telepathy.

9. Theta uses imagination to encode empathic impressions.

10. Empathic breathing is an important skill used for managing mental noise.

11. An empath totem can be used to strengthen and nourish your own empath

Stage Six
Developing the Eyes of an Empath

You now possess three of the empathic letters of Dreamtongue: Beta, Alpha, and Theta.
At this stage in your training you are observing the world around you more closely, you
are practicing alpha associating, you are keeping an Empaths journal, and you are
practicing empathic breathing.

These four elements combined are shaping and feeding your empathic nature, preparing
you to function as an actualized or bonded Empath. By the time you reach stage eight
you will be speaking and interpreting Dreamtongue and will begin the experience of "co-
patterning," where your inner empath melds with your waking mind, synthesizing a new
and emerging self, a psychic "rebirth" as an empath.

This process is equal to an infant growing into a toddler by learning to walk. Your
empathic nature is like a dormant developmental stage that requires for you to take tiny
steps first, and then in time learn walking. In the same way that you learned how to talk
in small stages, learning more about the world as you learned more words and became
more capable of interacting with the people around you.

You are now learning Dreamtongue where you will become more capable of interacting
with the empathic level of the world, where an entire new universe will become available
to you.

In Lesson Five you learned about the Theta level and about telepathy. You learned
about empathic breathing and about empathic totems, both powerful tools for
strengthening and enhancing the connection with your inner empath.

In Stage Six of your training that connection is very important. I highly recommended
getting fully comfortable with all prior lessons before you start to work with Lesson Six.
You are going to use that connection like a rope to pull your inner empath up from the
depths of your unconscious into your waking mind.

First you are going to use that rope, that connection, to travel down into the deepest
empathic sense, Delta, and then you are going to use that connection to bring Delta
awareness up and into your Beta state. This is a process I call "co-patterning." You
will learn about "co-patterning" by reading this chapter but it is not an experience that
occurs automatically. It is something that you can trigger, and it is something that
happens naturally in stages and when you are ready for it.


Delta is the deepest level of measurable consciousness. You generate Delta brainwaves, which cycle
between 1 to 4 per second, when you are in a deep profound sleep. It is also possible to enter a pure
Delta state through profound states of meditation and deep states of trance. If your consciousness
were an ocean then Delta would be the current just above the ocean floor.

Delta is the core of Theta, it is the "place" of the sleeping empath. The circle of Delta is like an egg or
a seed containing the fullness of your empathic nature. Delta is what is nurtured by the practice of
empathic breathing and the use of an empathic totem. Through empath training you fertilize and
gestate Delta, like an egg to be hatched. In time the egg opens and the inner empathic emerges
within you and begins to grow within you like a fresh new life.

Delta is the fourth letter of the empathic alphabet and the fourth level of
empathic functioning. At the Delta level empathic information is processed through
inner vision by what was traditionally called, "clairvoyance," which means clear seeing.

Now this inner vision is often referred to as "remote viewing." It is the ability to see
images within your mind without the benefit of your eyes. All functions of
visualization and the use of imagery originate in Delta.

In Theta images drawn from the Delta level are used symbolically. For example the symbolic image
of a tree may emerge as an empathic impression. The tree may represent the overall life of a person.
If the tree is full of leaves and fruit, the empathic impression would be one of abundance, prosperity,
health, and happiness. If the tree is bare it may indicate lack or unhappiness. It would depend on the
associations you make while you focus on the image of the tree. If you see one of the branches
breaking off the tree it could mean that someone or something is leaving, or a loss of some sort. The
imagery of Theta is typically symbolic in this way.

In Delta the function of "remote viewing" involves more of an actual perception of

images. A Delta message of a tree would be the image of an actual tree somewhere. A
Theta message of a tree would be the symbolic use of the image. How do you tell the
two apart? The answer is: by intent. The image of a tree originates in Delta because all
imagery originates in Delta.

Delta images are either fashioned by imagination, memory, or by remote

viewing. How you use the imagery is up to you. If you decide in your mind to use an
image as a symbolic focus for empathic information, then that image will respond to
your attention in a symbolic way. It is, after all, your mind and your thoughts.

All the images of inner vision are technically symbolic since they do not originate with
the eyes directly. If your intent is to see a person or place through remote viewing, then
that intent will guide the process. For the most part, symbolic and actual imagery
overlap since the empathic mind works with gestalts, or holograms.

Over the years many students have come to me complaining that they are not very
good at visualizing. Some say that they cannot visualize at all or that they never "see"
any empathic images. If you feel that visualizing is a problem for you or you just want
to improve your ability to visualize, then some basic information and practice offered in
stage six will help.

First of all, visualizing occurs in degrees. Just thinking about an object is a form of
visualizing. Right now, as you read this, think of a red delicious apple. Just by reading
the words "red delicious apple" you immediately start to form impressions. Even if you
did not immediately see the red apple in your mind, you at least started thinking about

Now try to picture the apple, not just the shiny red outside, but imagine yourself biting
into the apple. Think about the crisp texture, the sweet flavor, and the delicious juice.
Think about the contrast between the shiny red peel on the outside and the white crispy
wetness inside. Think about the soft wafting scent of the apple.

Which of any of these images did you respond to the most? If you responded to any or
all of them then you have been visualizing. Still, I understand that it is the act of
forming the actual "picture" of the object where some people have their greatest
struggle with visualizing.

To get a sense of how you visualize, do the following simple exercise.

First close your eyes and imagine that you are at home in your bedroom (unless you really are in
your bedroom, in that case choose another equally familiar room). Then try to picture the room: try to
see the bed, the furniture, any wall hangings, etc. You may have more response to picturing familiar
objects like those in your bedroom. They are not really like actual photographs with vivid color and
sharpness, are they? Visualize yourself moving around the room observing colors, shapes, objects,

Do this for about five minutes then open your eyes again. Notice the quality of these "images." They
tend to be only remotely visual. You are not using your eyes to see these images; you are using
memory and imagination to create images. If you have ever daydreamed or let your mind "wander"
off to distant thoughts, then you were visualizing. The very process of thinking is a form of visualizing.
You are thinking and visualizing all the time. By focusing your thoughts into one area you can bring a
visualized picture into your mind.

The good news is that the practice of empathic breathing will also enhance your ability
to visualize. As you do your breathing sessions you will notice images coming and going
within your mind. As you progress in your training these images will become clearer and
more abundant. Part of this involves learning to relax. The more relaxed you become
the easier it is to visualize. When you are tense and breathing shallow it is more
difficult to visualize.

The other good news is that your empathic totem is ready and waiting to improve your
visualization skills! As you do your empathic breathing exercise, begin to incorporate
your totem into the practice. You have probably done this already. As you are counting
your breaths you can picture your totem in your mind. Do not try to force the image of
your totem, just be aware of your totem and let any images of it appear. Record these
experiences in your Dreamtongue journal.

You can also "talk" an image. You may receive a Delta message about a specific place;
let's say a zoo. Someone wants you to meet him or her at the zoo but they cannot reach
you by phone. At the Delta level you get a mental picture of the zoo but you do not see
the image in your mind. You may notice this message at the Beta level through a body
signal, or at the Alpha level with a general feelings, or at the Theta level with thoughts
and symbols.
The thoughts at the Theta level may be of animals or of an animal. You might start
thinking about giraffes for no apparent reason. You are in the grocery store looking at
broccoli when suddenly the thought of a giraffe occurs to you. You ask yourself, "Why
am I thinking about a giraffe?" The picture of a giraffe may not be in your mind but the
thought or word is there.

In thinking about an image you are talking the image, which often leads to the picture
itself. At that point a picture of your friend standing at the zoo gate could form. From
there associations may follow where you connect with the idea of the zoo and eventually
the person.

The most memorable experience I have had with Delta overlaps with another empathic
talent called " astral traveling," or "out of body experience" (O.B.E.) It is debatable
whether or not we actually leave our bodies to travel around or whether we are "seeing
clearly" another place. It is at the Delta level that such experiences take place. I have
had numerous out of body experiences of different qualities.

One of the most powerful Delta visions I have ever had occurred after the death of my
grandmother. It happened after I had moved to another state and had not seen her in a
long time. She had made a tremendous impression on me as a child and I felt very close
to her. She had gone to bed and quietly drifted away in her sleep. It was just the way
she had always said that she wanted to go.

When I got the news I went and sat on the couch. I thought that I was going to be hit
by a wave of grief but instead, something very different happened. I closed my eyes and
at the same time it was like I was opening my eyes somewhere else. As my outer eyes
closed, my inner eyes opened. I was looking directly within her house over a thousand
miles away. In this instance, the vision was sharp and three-dimensional. It was as if I
was physically in her kitchen. I could see every aspect of the kitchen, the table and
chairs, the floor, and even small plants in her windowsill. I could move through the
vision. I looked into her living room and throughout the house. The remarkable clarity
and lifelike quality of the image remained intact as I examined her entire house.

There was another level to this experience, though. It is more related to Gamma, the
next stage of your training. While I was looking all through her house I could here her
voice talking to me. I could not see her anywhere but I could hear her in every room.
My visual movement through the house was like I was trying to find her. She kept
talking to me the entire time. Then, after I had gone through the house, I opened my
outer eyes and was back on the couch. I could not remember anything that she said
during the vision, for it was like another language, but I was filled with an incredible
sense of peaceful calm. I never did feel any sadness about her death after that.
Whatever it was that she had told me helped me to understand and accept where she
now was.

That was an example of my most vivid Delta experience. A more common example
might deal with finding a lost object or "looking ahead" to see if someone is at home or
not. A good way to practice Delta skills on a daily basis is by the "looking ahead"

The Looking Ahead Delta (L.A.D.)Exercise

Athletes do laps, Empaths do LAD's. The purpose of this exercise is twofold.

First, the Looking Ahead Delta exercise helps you begin to develop your visualization
skills in a practical manner. Second, the L.A.D. exercise trains your Delta level to work
with your conscious Beta level. This is the pulling the rope to bring up your inner
empathic from the depths. This is an exercise that you can do throughout your day
without taking out any more time from your schedule.

A L.A.D. consists of visualizing something before it happens or before you

know about it. For example, before you check your mailbox, visualize what is

Other types of L.A.D. possibilities:

 Before you open a package visualize what is inside.

 Before you enter a room, visualize who and/or what is inside.

 Before calling someone, visualize what he or she is doing.

 Before taking a walk, visualize what you might see.

Do this two to three times a day or as often as you like. Do it in ways that are
comfortable and convenient for you. Do not push it or become too concerned with it.
This is an exercise that needs to be fun and relaxed. Straining too hard to do a L.A.D.
exercise works to the opposite effect, by closing off the Delta channel. When you first
start you will have to remind yourself to practice. Eventually it will become second
nature, where you will form mental pictures ahead of an event.

Here is the key to this exercise: in the same way that Alpha Associating is
practiced without concern over empathic content, L.A.D.'s are performed
without concern about empathic images. The purpose of the exercise is to train
your Delta awareness to become a conscious function. In time the strength you develop
in your Delta level will be useful for remote viewing.

It is the same as in weight lifting. After you lift weights you do not instantly get the full
desired physique. After steady work for a length of time you end up with the body you
wanted. When you are doing a L.A.D. exercise you do not become instantly clairvoyant,
but in time your capacity for clairvoyant imagery increases. Some of your L.A.D. results
will have empathic content, that's fine as long as you understand that when there is no
empathic content the L.A.D. is still good.

The sixth stage of preliminary empath training is the final stage involving
normal empathic functioning. By normal empathic functioning I am referring to the
general abilities I have talked about so far: empathic sensing, telepathy, and

There is still another stage but the next stage, Gamma, involves the extraordinary
aspects of the empathic world. Some Empaths may want to work only with the first four
levels of Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta. This is a personal choice. You can focus your
development as an empath on any one level or combined levels.

The full nature of Dreamtongue, though, comes from the deepest empathic level of
Gamma. If you are interested in developing the full set of empathic letters and learning
the art of the empathic language, then you will begin here, in stage six, to work with


Co-patterning is a word that I coined to refer specifically to a deep level of empathic

development in Empaths. It resulted from intensive work with groups of students who
were interested in profound levels of change and personal transformation. It took
several years to really understand what it was and how it works. The simplest
explanation for co-patterning is: the process of awakening the sleeping
empathic within and merging it with your conscious mind.

To break down the definition into Dreamtongue components:

co-patterning is the process of awakening (making conscious) the sleeping empath

(Delta level) within and merging it with your conscious mind (Beta).

Your sleeping empath within is really just a dormant or remote part of yourself. It is not
actually separate or different from the rest of you. It is a potential that you carry and
can realize by developing skills related to that potential. The elusive nature of empathic
phenomenon is due in part to the dormant or undeveloped side of empathic potentials.
There are times when the Sun and the Moon can be seen in the sky together but it is
not very often.

As you grow as an empath, your conscious mind and your empathic mind
gradually synthesize. This affects your personality, your behavior, and your perception
of the world. Many of you who read this already know yourself as an empath. Others
sense their empathic nature and want to awaken it.

There are unique challenges to being an empath. There are no institutions or traditions
set up to support and guide Empaths. There have been no schools or guidelines
developed to help Empaths deal with their unique relationship to the world and society
before now.

I established the School of Empath Psychology back in 1997 to form some sort of
foundation for future Empath research and development. This is the work that I am
undertaking by sharing Dreamtongue.

Dreamtongue is the language of transformation and inter-connectedness. It does not

have to be referred to as "dreamtongue", that is only a creative label. It is "holographic
language." As your empathic mind melds with your waking mind, you begin a personal
transformation, I call that transformation co-patterning.

Co-patterning can begin spontaneously or through training. An intense emotional

experience may initiate the co-patterning process. A symbolic or spiritual experience
may also initiate co-patterning. Anyone who is aware of their own deeper empathic
nature as they move through the day-to-day world has started the co-patterning

Empath training helps you get a handle on the process of empathic transformation. It
provides a structure within which to grow and emerge as an actualized empath. The
combined elements of empath training also initiate co-patterning. I will restate this as:

Empath Training

- By beginning to observe the world with greater awareness (of yourself & others),

- Combined with practicing Alpha Associating,

- Combined with practicing empathic breathing,

-Combined with the use of a empathic totem,

- Combined with Look Ahead Delta Exercises,

- And recording your training experiences & observations in an Empaths journal,

- You can initiate the co-patterning process yourself.

There are endless topics and areas of empathic development. All of them are interesting
and useful, but I have found that concentrating on the Empaths training is the most
powerful and direct way to tap into your empathic potential.

Stage Seven
Discovering Your Power
In the last stage you learned direct ways to tap into your inner vision
and about the experience of co-patterning. Once co-patterning is
complete your waking mind and your empathic mind will be one and
the same. Little is required at the point in order to access empathic

If you have read chapter six and have started the L.A.D. exercises, then you are ready
to move into stage seven of your empath training. Stage seven introduces you to
Gamma the fifth and final letter of the empathic alphabet. In the advanced stages of
your training you will learn how to translate the English alphabet by using empathic
language, revealing the "Dreamtongue" level of written and spoken language.

A discussion on Gamma can either be made out to be very complex or very simple. The
world is fully of complex "gamma books." The purpose of this chapter is to make
Gamma very simple and accessible.

The problem with going farther than Delta is that we have run out of brain waves. Delta
waves cycle between 1 to 4 per second, so going past Delta seems impossible. In fact,
everything about Gamma seems impossible. Yet Gamma experiences occur. Gamma is
not related to a specific brain wave pattern, for it is the combination of all brain wave

Gamma is consciousness as an energy field, a whole unit of interconnected

functions. Understanding the "field effect" is a vital turning point in your development.
Grasping the implications of the field effect can take you out of the realm of
"superstitious thinking" into a rational and grounded appreciation for empathic
functioning. This is an important step in our progress as Empaths.

In some older traditions Gamma has been called "the aura," where others have
called it the "L-field." It is not limited to your head area or to your psyche. The
best image of Gamma is suggested by the Tattwa akasa as a basically oval light
surrounding your entire body. (Representing the field effect itself).

Gamma is the source of consciousness combined with the overall effect of

consciousness. It is the source of the other levels of empathic communication in Beta,
Alpha, Theta, and Delta. As the source of consciousness Gamma could be called the

So, as you might guess, as we move into the Gamma level we are moving into
metaphysical territory. At the Gamma level we enter the world of metaphysical and
spiritual speculation, something that is best communicated through Dreamtongue,
through symbols, myths, archetypes, ideas, and associations.

Gamma events are the result of the ultimate nature of all things, whatever that may be.
Gamma is representative of that "one step beyond our ability to perceive or
comprehend." Gamma events are more difficult to explain because they occur outside of
our understanding of reality. Gamma events are precognition: empathic messages about
future events; retrocognition: empathic messages about past events; communication
with other levels of consciousness or beings as they might be called.

At the Gamma level issues of life after death, communication with the deceased,
channeling, reincarnation, and the nature of reality all come into play. As I mentioned
before, some empaths prefer to work at just the normal empathic levels and do not
necessarily go as far as the Gamma level. Gamma is more difficult to work with because
it is indefinable, yet at the same time, it is easier to work with because all things are an
expression of it.
There is a great paradox at this level; involving the mind trying to know or perceive past
its own limits. The results of the paradox, unfortunately, are an endless amount of
speculation, fantasy, and wishful thinking. What is "true" or "truth" remains to be seen.
That does not mean that we should overlook or avoid the Gamma level. It just means
that we should be more vigilant and grounded when it comes to investigating Gamma

Conventional use of language fails to express the complete nature of the Gamma level.
"What" Gamma is communicates through Dreamtongue, as a holographic
language that conveys much more information through symbology than what
is available through literal use of words and ideas.

At the Gamma level Dreamtongue occurs in its full expressive form. Communication and
information are available through creative and archetypal imagery. In the next chapter
you will learn the art of empathic language as it occurs on the Gamma level, using the
full empathic alphabet. For now, your focus is on understanding Gamma as the fifth
empathic letter and the fifth level of empathic functioning.

One of the misconceptions that people have about any kind of "psychic functioning" is
that it mostly means the ability to tell the future. From this belief, many people who try
to develop their empathic natures spend a lot of time focusing on predicting the future
in some form. Precognitions do occur but the strength of empathic ability rests
in the day to day connections of telepathy, alpha associating, and remote

The idea that we can predict the future is fraught with many problems. If we can predict
the future does that mean, then, that the future is already set? Does learning about
future events change future events? If so, then what is the value of learning future
events? The idea of seeing into the future presents an unsolvable puzzle to the human
mind. It does not fit into any understanding of reality as we know it. Yet it happens.

In my work as a empathic consultant over many years, I have had incredible moments
of pinpointing future events for people. The events would happen and everyone would
be amazed, including me. Other times I could not tell a person their name if I were
looking at their driver's license.

Information about the future comes from a place inside that cannot be directly
manipulated. It is extremely easy for us to fool ourselves. The laws of chance alone
make guessing accurate at least half the time. All too often what appears to be an
accurate prediction of the future is really the result of guessing, logical, and critical
thinking, imagination, and the desire to believe.

Now, having said that, there are awesome moments when images and information
about the future actually do come through the empathic mind. Let's just be as realistic
about it as we possibly can.

The most common forms of precognition come through dreams. Have you ever had a
dream that came true? Many, many times I have had dreams of people, places, and
events, a year or two before I ever knew the people or the places. It creates an odd
feeling when you walk into a place and meet a person you dreamed about two years
before. This feeling has been called deja-vu. I believe that most deja-vu experience
comes from empathic dreams that eventually become reality.

Precognition as a empathic ability often occurs spontaneously and without

warning. This type of Gamma information suddenly appears in the mind through
feelings, impressions, thoughts, or images. Gamma messages can interact with any of
the other levels since Gamma is the source place of the levels. The most direct form of
precognition is the spontaneous kind, for it usually relates to information that is needed
in the moment.

People have tried for centuries, if not millennia, to manipulate precognition. Divination is
an art form that has evolved for the purpose of manipulating precognition. The tools of
divination help the empath focus their empathic impressions and empathic intent. The
common tools of divination include tarot cards, scrying tools, numbers, runes, I-Ching,
and yes, even tea leaves.

It does not matter what the tools are for all your empathic mind needs is a place to
focus. The use of a visual object to gain empathic information from Gamma is a Beta
function. Therefore the use of tools can establish a channel between the Beta and the
Gamma levels.

Another form of precognition is the premonition. A premonition is more like a

"sense" of something about to occur. People who fly the same airline or airplane all the
time are often the ones who decided not to take the flight the day of an accident;
because it did not feel right for some reason. A premonition is a Gamma message about
a future event that is felt at the Alpha level through a sense or impression.

The other end of Gamma abilities deals with retrocognition, or empathic

information about the past. Retrocognition is what you hear about when an empathic
is working on solving a crime with the police. Information and impressions are pieced
together to track a killer or to just determine what happened. This information can come
through any of the channels but is often accessed through Theta and Delta. In
retrocognition you can access Gamma information about the past, information that will
come to you as thoughts and images.

So you see, Gamma interacts with all the empathic levels. Gamma is the power
source to the other levels. Working with Gamma strengthens Beta, Alpha, Theta, and
Delta functions. To work with Gamma is to develop your power source as an empath and
is easy to initiate. To begin working with Gamma only requires that you select a tool or
tools that you will use to focus your empathic intent.

Selecting a Gamma Tool

A Gamma tool is one that is used in divination. Divination is the artful way of processing
empathic information. Again, traditional tools of divination are the Tarot cards, runes,
numbers, tea leaves, crystal balls, a bowl of water, yarrow sticks for I-Ching, regular
playing cards, and so on. No one tool is better than the other except that a specific tool
will work better for one individual than for another.

I encourage you to take your time with this stage, to have fun, and to be very creative.
Selecting a Gamma tool requires some experimentation. Trying different tools until you
connect with just the right one. You may select more than one, but there will always be
one that is more powerful for you. Ultimately you will not need tools to process
empathic information but they can be an asset in the early stages of your development.

Before selecting a tool be sure to consider the following information. The

traditional tools were created by people who were connected to their own Gamma level,
their own personal power. The best tools are the ones you develop yourself or the ones
that you use in your own personal way. That is why there are so many cards and
systems available today.
There is an empathic renaissance occurring. People are realizing the creative force
behind empathic and spiritual methodology. If you do choose a traditional tool, then be
flexible and realize that it will eventually have to be shaped to fit your own inner nature.
The books and the guidelines will help you get started but the true guidance comes from
within. That is the whole point.

To develop your Gamma power source:

1. Select one tool. (You may add more later, but the goal is to focus!) The tool may be
traditional or one you develop yourself. I will describe how to develop one yourself

2. The tool needs to be a physical object. If your tool is a "spirit guide" or an

empathic totem then create or acquire a physical object that represents your connection
to the guide. This can be a piece of jewelry, a picture, a symbolic object, etc.

3. If the tool is jewelry then take exceptional care of that jewelry. Keep it on
your person at all times. When you want to access empathic information touch or gaze
at the object. If the tool is a set of cards or other traditional objects then make a special
place to keep and preserve them. How you treat the tool forms an "aura" of expectation
and preservation of energy.

4. If you use a box or area to store your Gamma tools, be sure to include an
image of your empathic totem on or in the area. We are working with the "art of
intent" here, not superstitious thinking. For example, let's say your empathic totem is a
hawk and your choice of tools is a set of Tarot cards. You can build or acquire a wooden
box to store the cards. You could carve or burn the image of a hawk into the lid of the
box. This way you have connected your Gamma tools with your empathic totem. The
goal is to have all levels interact.

5. The use of tools establishes a Beta presence for your empathic nature. You
can extend this presence in different ways. Your object or the container of your
object can be anointed with a scent that you associate with your own empathic nature.
The choice of an oil or scent should be made empathically by listening to Dreamtongue:
through a Beta, Alpha, Theta, or Delta message. Any colors associated with your tools
can be chosen in the same way. The more associations you form to your tools the
stronger your connection to your power source.

6. If you find yourself using a tool and you are not feeling connected to it, then
change. Do not become burdened with trying to make it work. Your empathic nature is
already present; it simply needs a means to express. Listen to your inner empathic, it
will guide you.

7. Change and evolve your tools over time. Do not worry about jumping around
from one thing to another. You will find yourself always coming back to the thing that
empowers you the most. The process of being drawn back to something is a very
powerful Gamma confirmation.

8. Be sure to include your observations and developing relationship with your

tools in your Dreamtongue journal.

Creating Your Own Gamma Tool

The creation of new Gamma tools is very prevalent today. You can find countless
versions of Tarot cards, empathic reading cards, and spiritual guidance cards. There are
many systems of divination available to you right now. Any one of them may be your
Gamma connection. You can also be the creator of one. As an empath you only need a
place to focus your attention. Once focused you can listen the language of

To create your own tool or tools first decide what kind of method you want to
use. There are two types of method in divination:

 the "drawing method"-- where empathic information appears to be drawn

from a source, and

 the "projective method" - where empathic information is projected onto

images and patterns.

The projective method is commonly done through cards, stones, and patterns. You can
design a set of cards which contain images that are meaningful to you. The number of
cards, the meaning of the cards, how they are to be laid out, and the guidelines for their
use can all be empathically determined by you.

The projective method is also done by something called, "scrying," which involves
gazing into a translucent substance like water or a crystal ball. By focusing your
attention into a bowl or pool of water you can project Delta images to gain information.
To use the projective method simply requires that you have something visual on which
to focus. The rules, guidelines, and things that you use to establish your focus are
completely up to you.

There is no secret formula needed in order for them to work. Your own empathic nature
is what works; the tools are just the means to an end. You could grab a clump of dirt
and throw it on the sidewalk, then look for patterns in the dirt. It is your empathic mind
which organizes the interpretations you get. So be creative and be adventurous.

The drawing method can be done in many ways. For example, you may select a
necklace as your Gamma tool. Let's say it is an ankh. You might rub this ankh with
patchouli oil once a week, because the scent of patchouli is compatible with your
empathic nature. When you smell the patchouli you are reminded of your growth as an

To use the drawing method you would train yourself to touch the ankh in a specific way,
such as holding it between the thumb and index finger with your left hand. You
associate this act with drawing empathic information into your awareness, so that each
time you do this you access one or more levels of Dreamtongue.

The selection of an object and the ritual you design to access it is completely
determined by you. The important thing to remember is to decide in advance how you
are going to use it so that you are clear enough to focus when you need to. Be creative
and be flexible. Let the process grow and shape itself through experience.

There is one last practice to put into place. The practice of empowering your Gamma
tools. This is really self-empowerment with the tools as the focal point.

Empowering Your Gamma Tools

The last piece to put into place involves connecting with the world around you. As an
empath it is vital that you connect with the Earth, the natural rhythms and cycles that
are occurring around you.
If you are in the house, in the car, at work all the time, then you can lose your
connection to the pulse of life around you. To empower your Gamma connection
requires that you find a specific activity in order to connect with the Earth in your own
personal way. Consider the following guidelines.

1. Select a place outdoors that is special to you in some way. Listen to the
Dreamtongue messages you get while selecting an area. Listen to how your body
responds, to the feelings you get, the impressions that come to mind, the images that
appear. You probably already have such a place in mind; it is a place where you need to
go from time to time.

2. It does not matter if this is a public or private place, as much as it matters

how you feel and respond to it. It can be a park, a beach, a backyard, a courtyard, a
tree, a river, a stream, a pond, a path, a garden. It can be anything as long as it feels
right to you and you can associate connecting to the Earth through the place.

3. Make a point to visit this place at least once a week. There are no rules for how
often you do this; it is just that you maintain the connection. Sometimes you will need
to go there more often and other times less often. There will be times when weather
affects your access to the place. The place itself will go through cycles and growth,
which will be a part of your process. If your place is a park that gets bulldozed down for
a parking lot then your growth will involve transferring the energy of that spot to a new

4. Take your Gamma tool(s) with you when you go to the place. You may design
a ritual (process) for your empowerment time. You may just sit in contemplation. Your
time may involve walking or creating or whatever. You must guide and determine these
things for yourself. This inner guidance is the power of the empath that you need to

5. Record each time you visit your power source in your empaths journal. Some
may use the time at the power source for journal writing. You may find yourself writing
more directly in Dreamtongue (from the empathic level) by doing this.

6. Always go alone to this place. This maintains the focus and the concentration
behind your development. You might desire to share this spot with a special person but
I encourage you to keep this practice intact. Of course, the only really guiding principle
comes from within you and all choices rest with you. You may find other places that are
better for sharing with others.

You now have all five of the letters of the empathic alphabet:

You have been introduced to how they relate and work with each other. These letters
combine into messages and impressions that originate from your empathic senses. To
understand your dream voice, which speaks in the language of your unconscious,
involves hearing with your body, mind, and soul, the messages that come from all levels
of life.

Normal literal language conveys very little information compared to Dreamtongue. By

beginning to understand the five empathic letters you are seeing how a symbol can
represent so much more information than a word, as well as how a word can be a
symbol. This understanding of how a symbol can convey more information than a literal
word is the beginning of your knowledge of Dreamtongue. It is the language of an
empath. It is a key to levels of information not available to your primary senses.

When you have selected a Gamma tool or tools, and have begun the practice of
empowering yourself and those tools, you have completed stage seven of your training
as an empath. You are now ready to begin working with the art of empathic language.

Stage Seven Review

1. The goal of stage seven is to understand Gamma as the source of the other four
levels of empathic functioning and to develop a means of working with this power

2. Gamma, unlike the other functions, is not related to brain wave activity.

3. Gamma is consciousness as a field of energy, also called the aura.

4. Gamma events involve precognition, retrocognition, channeling, issues of Life after

death, other forms of life, and other levels of reality.

5. Precognition often occurs spontaneously when there is a need. Divination is a means

of accessing precognition intentionally.

6. Divination is the artful way of processing empathic information.

7. Selecting a Gamma tool connects an empath to her or his own power source.

8. You can create your Gamma tool or use traditional ones.

9. The final practice of empath training is to empower your Gamma tools on a regular

10. Dreamtongue is the language of the empath using symbols to convey more
information than literal language.

Stage Eight
Interpreting Dreamtongue

(Note: due to the length of this lesson it will be presented in five sections)


In stage seven all the pieces of your empath training were set into place. You learned
about Gamma, the source of empathic information and ways to empower that source. At
this stage you will have chosen a tool or set of tools to work with your empathic source
and will have begun the practice of empowering your tools.

You are now ready to learn the basics of interpreting and working with the empathic
language of Dreamtongue;.to learn how the letters of the empathic Alphabet fit together
to form words, images, and messages.
This lesson will be like a spelling primer, introducing you to pieces of the empathic
language that you can use to learn the larger forms of expression; think of it as an
"empathic dictionary." You can learn this primer by first focusing on the areas that are of
interest to you. In time you can learn the other areas for greater expansion of your

The language of Dreamtongue, by any name, is spoken by all living things. At the
nuclear level of the atom, all things can be considered to have life. Dreamtongue is
the interconnected communications between all things.

You are more likely to be aware of the empathic language between people, but it occurs
between animals, plants, and insects as well. Dreamtongue occurs through all of nature,
for mother Earth herself is a living thing. The Earth speaks to you through
Dreamtongue. As your understanding of this greater meta-communication process
increases, so too will your empathic abilities.

Since Dreamtongue is the all pervasive language of existence there is no end to the
possible uses and formats available to an Empath. As a student of Dreamtongue you
have stepped into a wonderful world of limitless possibilities. To guide you in your
learning of the empathic language I have chosen one area to focus the lesson. I will
focus on the interactions between people. After learning about interactions your journey
will have just begun as you explore Dreamtongue communication with animals, plants,
and beyond.

In the same way that you can fit into a new culture or country by learning the language,
the learning of Dreamtongue will help you become a citizen of a larger empathic world
with vast amounts of new information. Your challenge as a budding Empath will be to
learn how you can use that information and how that information impacts your life. To
deal with those challenges I encourage you to work with an "Empath's Circle," described
in the next lesson.

Interpreting the Empathic Language of Another Person

The five levels of Dreamtongue, indicated by the five empathic letters, apply to every
aspect of communication.

The following symbol composite represents every person you encounter:

Where is the physical body, appearance, body language and behavior.

is the emotional and psychological state, the person's overall comfort
level, the individual's orientation to an experience, the associations
the individual is making, and the general mood that is being

is the individuality, what is unique about the individual

mentally/intellectually, the specific personality, the
individual's experience in life, the education, and memories, the
thoughts and ways of thinking, and the types of imagery the
individual uses to communicate (including the types of words most
commonly used by that person).

is what shapes the personality, it is the contextual world view of the

individual, the individual's perception of things, it is to a larger extent
the unconscious which is filled with imagery from all levels. It is the
own empathic awareness of that person whether conscious or
unconscious. Delta is the type of "pictures" someone paints with their
overall communication.

is the very soul of the person, it is the values and the beliefs that the
individual holds dear; it is what gives meaning to that person's life, it is what
is loved and what is enjoyed by that person. It is the source of pleasure as
well as of pain, it is the guiding force of that life either consciously or
unconsciously, and it is the essential energy state of that person.

Everything you can understand about the five empathic levels as related to yourself also
applies to other people. As an empath you will use your understanding of yourself to
understand others. What you know about yourself, you know about everyone

Each level of empathic language has five levels of expression. For example, the Beta
level of body language has five levels of expression:

Beta Language

1. "Actions Speak Louder Than Words" (the Beta of Beta) describes the Beta level
of body language -- the level where your body speaks for itself. The Beta level of body
language comes from how you are using your body. A person doing aerobics uses his or
her body to exercise. To figure out what the Beta level of a persons body language
simply answer this question, " What is it they are using their body to do?" Once you
know that, you know how the empathic energy is being utilized on the physical level.

Empathic energy is always present and is always in use: physically, emotionally,

mentally, and spiritually. Observation of action is the first pathway to empathic
perception. Inexperienced Empaths like to debate over this point by saying, "the whole
thing that makes me an 'empath' is that I can perceive things that are not visible."
To advance in your abilities you must understand that all perception/communication
exists on a continuum. Beta represents the "outermost" extent of the continuum and
Gamma represents the innermost extent of the continuum. Your ability to move from
one end of the continuum to another represents the level of mastery you have
developed over your own empathic functioning.

When you combined observation of action/body language with observation of intuition

you amplify your perception many times over. True empathic functioning does not solely
rely upon extra-sensory perception. Instead it relies on heightened degrees of
sensitivity and awareness. Heightened sensitivity and awareness act as a greater
conduit to intuition. It is critical to grasp this principle before proceeding in the lesson.

2. "Acting How You Feel"-- (the Alpha of Beta) indicates how emotional states
reflect in your body behaviors. On this level your body acts as a empathic mirror. Your
form follows your thoughts. When you are sad you slump and when you are excited you
stand up straight.

Most people show what they are feeling by their expressions and by the way they are
holding their bodies. Some people are expert at hiding their feelings (except from us
Empaths, right?). To know the Alpha level of a person's body language answer this
question, "What emotional state is the person projecting through their posture,
movement, and expression?"

Now, keep in mind, as we go through this list, we are going deeper and deeper into the
person. If you are doing consultations this is an excellent map to follow.

3. "Acting Out Your Thoughts" (the Theta of Beta) sums up the Theta level of body
language - when your body reflects your thoughts. I refer to you when describing these
levels because you must keep in mind that you do all the same things that other people
do. Use your self to study these levels. Observe your own behavior and you will learn a
lot about other people.

When you gesture to express your ideas or experiences you are using Theta body
language. For example, hand movements to show the width or height of something. A
person who gestures a great deal with their hands while talking is likely to be a person
who is very connected in some way to the Theta level. This type of person is frequently
very intuitive.

To pinpoint the Theta level of a person's body language answer the following question,
"How is this person using body to communicate thought?" Some people use their
bodies in a very minimal way to express their thoughts. This kind of behavior can
indicate a person who is very guarded and possibly fearful, although there are other
possibilities to consider. Once you pinpoint the Theta level, or any level for that matter,
you empathically connect with that level.

4. "The Freudian Slip On A Banana Peel" (the Delta of Beta) happens at the Delta
level of body language and occurs through unconscious body signs. For example, you
may be standing farther back from someone you do not like or trust, or standing close
and leaning in towards someone you are very interested in, without being aware of it. If
this behavior is intentional, then it comes from the Alpha level with a desire to
communicate a feeling. When you are not aware of the body language you are
expressing, the unconscious level of Delta is at work.

This type of body language indicates when a person is most open to empathic probing
and communication. It takes tact and skill to work with this level of communication.
Intuition regarding Delta body language can form profound empathic links for an
Empath performing a "empathic reading." To assess the Delta level of a person's body
language, ask a test question. You form the test question by your impressions and
intuition. First determine what your impression is about the person's behavior.

For example, if you have the impression that the person is uncomfortable, ask, "Are you
feeling uncomfortable?" If the subject is surprised and denies feeling uncomfortable (yet
you keep getting the impression that he or she is definitely uneasy), chances are real
high that you have tapped into the Delta level of the body language.

A word of advice -- be sensitive to what test questions you ask. If someone is revealing
something very awkward to you by body language, don't just pull the rug out from
under them. An empathetic and supportive approach is a critical empathic skill. I have
been shocked and dismayed by individuals who claim to be "Empaths" yet display little
to no empathy.

5. "Aura Reading" pertains to the (the Gamma of Beta) Gamma level of body
language, how holographic or spiritual information is conveyed through your body
movements and states. It is truly amazing to realize just how much communication is
going on at any given point in time! Being an Empath means being aware of this
communication and acting upon that awareness.

The truth of Dreamtongue is that everything is communication! Period. An Empath is a

person who trains to understand, read, and use this universe of communication. Since
the Gamma level expresses through all the other levels, all expressions through the
body relate to the Gamma level of body language. You can single out the Gamma level
by considering the aura, the overall energy impression of the person. It is the gestalt,
or combination of all factors.

Think of Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta as puzzle pieces. When you put them all together
you get the Gamma. Gamma expressed through Beta specifically relates to the energy
states of expansion versus contraction, relaxation versus tension, withdrawn versus
open; all perceptible through Beta.

Your ability to read Beta body language develops by simply observing human behavior.
Specifically noticing body posture, gestures, movement, and spatial relationships trains
your empathic awareness to read Beta language. As you add Alpha to your repertoire,
you will begin to notice the feelings or responses you have to what you are observing.

Reading the aura can start with your eyes (Beta) and reach into deeper levels of
information. All living things have an energy field (Gamma). This is like a light around
the body. You and everyone around you has this light around their body. This light only
registers through specialized instruments and empathic senses.

There are ways to train your eyes to see the aura. What I offer involves learning to see
the aura in your mind's eye. The following is an exercise you can practice with a friend.

Training Yourself To See Auras

First, have someone stand in front of you about three feet or more away. Practice taking
in their entire image without focusing on any details. You will notice that as you do this
you are not just looking at the body, you are also developing a mental image of the
person. As you become more aware of the mental image you will see light and energy
around the person.

When you first start this exercise I want you to only concern yourself with developing
the ability to see this energy field and not worry about interpreting it. After you have
developed the ability to see the aura (Gamma field) immediately when you see a person
then begin to interpret what you are seeing. Refer to the Lesson Seven for
understanding Gamma.

Also, keep in mind that interpreting empathic data involves all level of your being. I do
not endorse exercises where you have someone stand in front of a white wall in order to
see the aura. This method relies on unintentional tricks of the eye and nervous system
and does not truly reveal anything about auras.

Beta energy also occurs and expresses through speaking as well as body language. The
Beta voice occurs when spoken language focuses on external events and observations.
Spoken Beta deals with declarative and directive statements, such as "There is the
house," and," This is my dog," and, "Pick up the book." Whenever you are declaring
what something is or trying to direct activity around you, then you are using a Beta
voice. You will learn more about empath voices in the next lesson.

Interpreting Dreamtongue
Section 2: The Language Of Alpha

Alpha Language is the general language of the psyche, the

emotional and psychological state of the person. I will refer to this as
"emotive language" for the sake of this lesson. Emotions filter through
body language in Beta and through subtler ways in Alpha. Remember,
Alpha signals come to you through general feelings and impressions.

What you read about the Alpha level of a person is first your
responses to that person, then their responses to you. The back and forth activity
of responses between two people is the Alpha level of empathic communication.

Your ability to read the Alpha level of a person influences how well you can read and
understand your responses to the person. Understanding the five levels of Alpha is an
important part of your development as an expert traveler in the "Empath InnerNet," the
superhighway of empathic information.

"For Every Action Their Is An Equal And Opposite Reaction." (the Beta of
Alpha) The Beta level of emotive language involves your reactions to physical events,
objects, and people. When you are attracted to someone you will send out Beta
emotions, either consciously or unconsciously. When feeling repelled by someone or
something you will also be sending out equally strong Beta emotions.

Remember: Alpha works with a push/pull process. This push/pull is a form of

attraction versus repulsion. A Beta emotional signal is usually strong and sensed on all
empathic levels. When it is very strong you simply perceive it at the Beta level using the
primary senses. Your own responses often are clues to reading the Beta level of a
persons emotive language.

Ask yourself this question when in the presence of someone, "Am I feeling an invisible
push or pull with this person?" If the answer is yes to either the push or the pull you are
getting a Beta level Alpha signal (or in other words, the person is creating enough
emotional energy to make a physical impression!).

"An Ocean of Emotion" (the Alpha of Alpha) accurately describes the Alpha level of
emotive language that involves the expression of emotional and feeling states.
Expressing your emotions can be through personal statements like, "I feel happy," or "I
am really excited for you." Yet verbal statements about emotions and feelings are just
the tip of the iceberg. Alpha signals related to emotional/feeling states are the most
prevalent form of empathic signals occurring when two people are interacting.

Alpha dynamics:

 You are responding emotionally to the person you are encountering, they are
responding emotionally to you.

 You have a pre-existing emotional state and so do they.

 You are responding emotionally to things inside your self and so are they.

 They are responding emotionally to their surroundings and so are you.

All of these signals are flying around when two or more people come together, like
currents in an ocean. As an Empath you sense these currents at the Alpha level. When
you pair Beta signals with Alpha signals you can get a good reading on most situations.

Empaths could serve very useful functions in political situations.

There is one major complication at the Alpha level of emotive language. Most people
tend to cover their own emotional states. This can be for two reasons: the basic need
for privacy and because we have specific things that we do not want people to know.
The Alpha level is where we are vulnerable, so the Alpha level is also where we put up
our defenses, our guards, and our walls.

As an Empath you will learn how defenses and walls are strong Alpha signals. In the
same way that you can read someone's emotional state you can also read their "walls".
The strength and intensity of the wall (or resistance) are normally equal to the strength
and intensity of the emotion it is covering.

Normal defenses that are put up for basic privacy are often flexible and negotiable.
Defenses that are rigid and fiercely defended represent "dangerous" territory. By that I
mean it is an area where the person is most vulnerable and probing around there could
lead to all types of problems. Learning how to handle dangerous territory and such
complicated interactions comes through experience and advanced training. Your
sophistication as an Empath will develop over time, you must trust in your own process.

"Starting To Read Minds" (the Theta of Alpha) occurs through the Theta level of
emotive language. Here is where you respond to someone's internal states, such as
their thoughts and beliefs. You could be riding on an elevator with a person and that
person may not be responding to you at all. They may not even seem to be aware of
you. Yet you are getting all kinds of obvious and empathic impressions that the person
is very angry. Sometimes it is not obvious, yet you still get the Alpha associations of
anger coming from that person. The anger is not a response to you. The anger is a
response to something they are thinking.

When you get such signals from a person, those signals represent the Theta level of
emotive language. What you do with such signals is up to your best judgment and
personality. You may get an Alpha association that guides you to offer kind words to the
person, which in turn relieves that person due to your action. The other possibility is
that you get an Alpha association to leave that person alone.

Your first and most immediate impression is usually the most empathic one. I
want you to notice that reading the Alpha level does not involve so much answering a
question as much as it does learning to sense "currents." When in Alpha take your
snorkel and seahorse inner tube, for you are getting into deep waters!

"Empathic Link-Up" (the Delta of Alpha) describes the Delta level of emotive
language. This level requires more practice and skill to perceive than the previous
levels. If Alpha is the empathic ocean then this level is caverns under the ocean floor.
Delta emotive language involves an overview of how the person perceives life, as well as
their orientation to the world. Signals from this level involve a common theme used in
movies when portraying empathic events: seeing through the eyes of another person.
Yet at this level it does not involve seeing what they are seeing, as much as it involves
seeing things the way they see it.

To give you a "nondramatic" example that many people relate to: when I go to the
movies or watch a television show with someone, I pick up the Delta level of their
emotive language very strongly. The way it occurs is that I end up perceiving the movie
the same way the other person is perceiving it. If it is a movie that I would normally
enjoy tremendously, and I am watching it with a person who does not enjoy it and does
not understand it, then I experience the movie the same way they do. If they feel bored
with the movie then I feel bored with it. Later I might watch it alone or with someone
who enjoys the same films, and then find the movie exciting and wonderful.

Another example of the Delta level of emotive language is when two people are seeing
the same event from two entirely different points of view. If neither one is able to see it
as the other does, an argument usually ensues. As an Empath you can develop the
ability to see things from the perspective of the other person that will help tremendously
with your communication skills.

As you begin to make this empathic link-up with other people, it will become very
important for you to know how to distinguish your own thoughts and perceptions from
those of others. You can ask questions here to separate your thoughts from someone
else's. Examine each thought you are having and ask yourself if this is your normal way
of thinking. Break down each thought with another question until you feel as you have
separated your thoughts from your link-up partner. As with all good empathic skills,
practice makes perfect.

"The Empathic Snapshot" (the Gamma of Alpha) The Gamma level of emotive
language involves an overall response to a person, one that is more immediate, like a
first impression. A Gamma first impression is really like a empathic snapshot. It gives
you a complete picture immediately of all levels of a person. The problem with working
with a Gamma first impression is the speed of it. The empathic snapshot occurs within a
second of meeting someone.

For most people many thoughts flood after that first second and the initial impression
gets lost. When you first meet someone each second counts as one impression. The
very first few impressions are the most empathic. All impressions that follow become
imbued with conscious evaluations and judgments.

Learning to catch your Gamma snapshots, your immediate first impression requires
practice. Most first impressions are followed by a flood of afterthoughts. Catching those
empathic first impressions involves remembering that very immediate
response/thought you had in a given moment. This is a talent you can develop by
repetitive practice.

Interpreting Dreamtongue
Section 3: The Language Of Theta
Theta Language is the actual mental content of a person, your basic
mind reading stuff. Where Alpha is the emotional/psychological state
that results from the mental content. Some would say that the
emotional/psychological state causes the content but we do not need
to debate psychology here. For the purposes of empath training,
mental content and psychological states are treated as two different

"Mind Talk" (the Beta of Theta) occurs at the Beta level of mental language and
involves the thoughts a person is having about the present environment, the people and
objects interacting with the person, and the person's present activity. There are many
good opportunities for telepathy at this level. This is the level where you think about
calling someone, then the phone rings and it is the person you were about to call. This
is the level where you know someone's location and/or what the person is doing even
though you are nowhere near at the time.

This is the level of common and frequent telepathy. The signals at this level are
usually fairly strong since these signals come from present activity. When someone
says, "read my mind," this is the level you are trying to access. The problem is that
when someone says "read my mind," they are no longer sending out Beta mental
signals because they stop and focus inside themselves. Once a person starts to focus
within, that person starts sending out Alpha signals instead, which can only be "sensed"
instead of "read".

When it comes to mind to mind communication at this level it is better for the person to
pick a color or flavor and to hold that color or flavor in mind. The point is for the target
to be experiencing that color or flavor. Once the target person is experiencing a color he
or she will then be sending out a Beta signal of mental language. The signal is still not
as strong as it would be during engagement in actual Beta activity.

"Reading Feelings" (the Alpha of Theta) occurs at the Alpha level of mental language,
which involves the conscious thoughts a person is having about their own emotional
feeling states. The more people are aware of their own emotional states the more
control they may have over those states and the more integrated those states can be
with their whole being.

I wanted to avoid the cliché here, but I cannot -- the more in touch people are with their
own feelings, the more likely it is that the signals they send you about their emotional
state is deliberate. This is not an absolute rule but rather a guideline. At the Alpha level
of mental language you are more likely to pick up the emotional states of which the
person is unaware and would not want for you to perceive.

In other words, if a person is deliberately sending you a signal about their emotional
state, it may be a controlled or contrived message. For example, let's say you encounter
someone who is hostile or competitive with you. For whatever reason that person does
not want you to know about these feelings, so he or she deliberately projects signals of
a calm, friendly, and pleasant nature. The signals being sent you are not the Alpha
signals of mental language, instead they are contrived Beta signals. As an Empath you
can sense that the signals are incongruent, or do not fit, with what you are sensing.
What you are sensing are the actual Alpha signals of the person's mental

When people are unaware of a strong emotion they tend to send out Alpha signals of
their mental language in obvious and empathic ways. If a person shows genuine interest
in something you are doing, not only would that generate obvious signals but the
thoughts the individual had about his or her own emotional state would generate Alpha
signals of mental language. Someone could be thinking, "I really like this. It is very
interesting," and in return, you get the mirrored telepathic response, "They really like
this. They find it very interesting."

"The Direct Connection" (the Theta of Theta) is the level of direct telepathy, the
Theta level of mental language. This is the level of mind to mind connection, or as I said
earlier, nervous system to nervous system connection. This level involves the thoughts a
person generates at any given time. This is the level where you are directly receiving
the thoughts of the other person. How you encode and interpret those signals will be
unique to you.

Often at this level, Dreamtongue occurs as thoughts in your own head. The person may
start thinking about a musical seen the week before. Suddenly you start thinking about
musicals too, but you may not think about the exact one. This could lead you to say
something like, "Do you like musicals?" He or she could then say, "That's funny, I was
just thinking about a musical I saw last week."

How many times has something like this happened to you? Thousands of people have
shared these types of experiences with me over the years. This type of telepathy occurs
all the time with people but often goes unrecognized.

"Visual Thoughts" (the Delta of Theta) occur at the Delta level of mental language.
The empathic messages here involve what people are thinking about the things they are
seeing. The signals do not directly involve the actual images themselves but instead
involve the active thoughts the person is having. For example," It looks like a light is on
in the house," or "This gift looks like a book." The word look does not have to be in the
thought, it could be "There's that bag of pretzels I've been wanting." Sometimes
telepathy at this level involves verbal descriptions of visual images, like the example of
the person thinking about a giraffe while connecting to her friend at the zoo.

"Spiritual Questing" (the Gamma of Theta) is reflected in the Gamma level of mental
language. This level of reading a person empathically involves perceiving the individual's
thoughts around the meaning of life, philosophical questions, and spiritual
understanding. Many of these thoughts are "unspoken" or unformed into clear thoughts.

Often if you pick up a Gamma signal of mental language it will occur to you as a
question that the person has on a deep level. This type of signal normally comes by
focusing and spending more time with the person, such as in a formal empathic reading.
In classes where I teach empathic counseling, I emphasize this level because it reaches
into the heart of what a person is really asking during a reading.

As you learn more about your own Gamma level, you will find your ability to reach the
Gamma level of another person will improve tremendously

Interpreting Dreamtongue
Section 4: The Language Of Delta

Delta Language is the level of pictures, images, forms, shapes, and

patterns. This is the "world of the empathic," the stuff from which
movies are made. Profound levels of empathic functioning occur at
this level and exist within all people. Yet the level is so remote from
our conscious minds that it seems unreal to most people. The most
representative skill of Delta is called remote viewing. The Delta skill of
remote viewing involves seeing actual things but Delta language
involves both actual and symbolic imagery. Delta is visual language in all of its forms.
"Seeing What The Killer Sees" (the Beta of Delta) is a phrase that really gets your
attention, doesn't it? The Beta level of visual language is the favorite level of Hollywood
films. There have been numerous films and TV shows where someone can see through
the eyes of a killer and has to somehow stop them. Well, I hope you never have to deal
with such an experience unless you are looking for it.

Signals from this level involve directly seeing what another person is seeing through
your own inner vision. Although empathic vision often appears represented as dramatic
and sensational, seeing what another person is seeing is more likely to occur in a very
ordinary context.

Once my wife had gone to a nearby grocery to pick up a few items. After a half an hour
went by I expected her to be home any minute. Well, another half hour went by and she
wasn't home. So I was a little concerned. Another half hour went by and she still wasn't
home, so I was getting very concerned. I decided to make a telepathic link with her by
focusing on her.

I focused all my thoughts on her with the intent of knowing where she was at or what
she was doing, primarily to know that she was okay. Within a few minutes I saw clothing
items and the inside of a store. I could see her hands holding up some pants and then
setting them back down again. At the Alpha level I felt a sense of calm and reassurance.
When she came home she told me she had gone to the clothing store and was looking
at some pants. Not quite as exciting as tracking a killer, but hey, it can come in handy. I
should have called this, "Seeing What The Shopper Sees."

"The Empathic House Of Mirrors" (the Alpha of Delta) is the tricky Alpha level of
visual language where the empathic messages are distortions of what a person is seeing
based upon the emotional state he or she is experiencing. If someone is in a very happy
state then the world looks beautiful and exciting. If the person feels depressed or
disappointed the world can look menacing or ugly. If someone is afraid of water the
beach could look very threatening. If someone loves chocolate a fudge brownie might be
the most beautiful thing in the world at that moment.

At the Alpha level of visual language the quality and status of an image are
your signals. Unless you are seeing what the other person is seeing this type of signal
does not register very clearly. Where it does apply is my example of going to the movies
with someone who does not like the movie. Since I am looking at the same thing they
are looking at, the Alpha visual signal registers for me, and I can feel the same way
about what I am seeing as the other person feels.

This level is a "empathic hall of mirrors" because you are receiving feelings from another
persons viewpoint which gets entangled with your own viewpoint. It is hard to tell the
difference between your own responses and those of the other person. The best way to
sort the responses out is to ask the person. It is perfectly legitimate to ask questions
during a reading in order to sort out empathic messages from mental noise. This helps
refine the connection. If you are working at this level but not in a reading context, then
ask yourself the question, " Is this my own response?".

Draw from all of your intuitive levels to answer the question then consciously
acknowledge the answer. Each time you come to a confusing message then ask the
question again. It is just like feeling your way through the House of Mirrors, looking for
the doorways. Once you have sorted out the responses you are experiencing, then you
can probe deeper into the information you are getting.

"The House of Mirrors Continues" (the Theta of Delta) as you move deeper in your
empathic connection to others. Here in the Theta level of visual language you are still
moving through images of your own thoughts that reflect the inner thoughts of the
other person. To keep this level clear just remember: When people are thinking
about what it is they are seeing, those thoughts become signals. If the person I
am with is thinking," This movie makes no sense," and I receive that signal, then I
begin to think," This movie makes no sense." At the same time this happens, I am
aware that the movie makes sense to me, but I have picked up the other person's
thought that in turn shaped how I saw the same event.

At this level it is not the thought you measure but the influence of the thought
on your perceptions. It is a very subtle distinction that you do not need to worry
about, just keep in mind. Dreamtongue is the basis of a new technology and this lesson
is simply for outlining the parts of that technology for future reference. When you are
actively functioning as an Empath you will be experiencing more of an unbroken flow
rather than all these distinct parts. Learning the components of Dreamtongue only helps
strengthen your unbroken flow.

"The Empathic Dream Connection" (the Delta of Delta) occurs at the Delta level of
visual language. This Delta/Delta level involves a fairly rare form of empathic
connection. A Delta signal of visual language is a empathic vision of another person's
empathic vision. This would happen if two people are seeing the same object and event
by remote viewing at the same time. Yet it would be difficult to establish if each person
were having an independent remote viewing or if one was seeing the inner vision of

I do not have a real life example of this process but there was a Hollywood example
once, in a movie from the late seventies. I will not describe it here but if you are
interested in hearing this example just post a request. What is more likely to occur at
this level sounds even more fantastic and that is: two people having the same
dream together at the same time.

Theta is the primary level of dreams but Delta involves even deeper forms of dreaming.
About fifteen years ago I had an intense experience with this phenomenon. A girl that I
liked very much and had very strong feelings for, was about to leave the country. I had
never really expressed my feelings to her. She was going back to her native country and
was not planning to return. For different reasons I was unable to get to her in time to
say good-bye.

One night after she had already made it back home, I had an amazingly vivid dream. In
this dream I met her on a downtown street. The image of the street and area of town
was clear and extremely lifelike. In the dream we hugged, cried, and said our good-
byes. In the dream I told her my real feelings for her and she did the same. It was an
overwhelmingly emotional dream. We held each other tightly afraid to let go but, as
dreams go, I awoke.

Within days I sent her a letter and told her all about the dream. Before the letter had
time to even get to her, I received a letter from her. In that letter she told me all about
having the exact same dream. She described it exactly as I had described it. When she
got my letter she immediately wrote back saying how amazed she was at what had
happened and how our letters had crossed in the mail. This is one example of
connecting through Delta visual language.

"Spirit Vision" (the Gamma of Delta) is the Gamma level of visual language and it
involves seeing symbolic spiritual imagery about a person. Sometimes people claim to
see a guardian angel, a spirit guide, or a spiritual design within a persons aura.
Holographic images from Gamma frequently appear in visual forms of some sort.
Whether or not there are actual guardian angels or spirit guides remains a personal
decision for each individual Empath to decide.

Images of a persons past incarnations can appear at this level as well. Information
about the persons past can appear through the Gamma level of visual language. To
work with the Gamma level of visual language requires a comfort and an interest in
symbols, myths, and creative expressions. I have written a small book I use in spiritual
awakening classes called, "The Auroraportes." It is written in Dreamtongue using the
Gamma level of visual language as the focal point. It conveys the dynamic influence of
symbolism in our search for meaning. Symbolism that occurs deep within this level of a
psyche is rich with powerful information.

I later took the format of the Auroraportes and expanded it into a complete work that is
now called "The Book of Storms." Once you tap into this level within yourself you will be
able to do it with another person. When you work at this level with another person you
are working with what constitutes spiritual guidance. Symbolic messages are
holographic, which means they contain information about the whole person or their
whole life. Symbols contain vast amounts of information in contrast to the limited
information of literal messages. The word spiritual here does not imply any doctrines or
dogma of any sort. I use the word spiritual to refer to the overall quality of someone's

Interpreting Dreamtongue
Section 5: The Language Of Gamma

Gamma Language is the meta-language of the spirit, it is the whole

(holographic) nature of a person that expresses through countless means. All
the above levels of Dreamtongue are in fact Gamma language. Gamma
language expresses spiritual questing, spiritual needs, and spiritual

The word spiritual here means a connection to existence and meaningful relationship
with all of life. Gamma is the spiritual language. This is the deepest level of empathic

"The Creative Urge" (the Beta of Gamma) emerges deep from within the Beta level of
spiritual language and involves perceptions/expressions of beauty and joy in the
physical world. The recognition of beauty (aesthetics) and the emotion of joy trigger
unique patterns within select parts of your brain.

Messages regarding the sanctity and the beauty of nature, of physical life, of physical
love, of art, and movement are all Beta messages of spiritual language. As Gamma
signals, these messages originate from within you at the deepest level of your self.
Gamma signals are often felt as intense creative impulses.

"Spiritual States" (the Alpha of Gamma) occur at the Alpha level of spiritual language.
This level involves signals of spiritual emotional states, states of wholeness, joyfulness,
clarity, love, internal freedom, and peacefulness. These signals result from an
awareness of the holographic nature of things, or put another way, the oneness behind
all things.

You normally receive information at the Alpha level of spiritual language when
something inspires you or touches you in a significant way. Standing before a waterfall,
watching the sunset, holding a baby, or reading inspirational materials can generate
these signals within you. When you can read these states in another person you are
accessing their Alpha level of spiritual language.

"The Universal Mind" (the Theta of Gamma) can be found through the Gamma level
of spiritual language. It is the place where all rational explanations fall short.

The entire area of metaphysics, including religion and all spiritual topics, come into
discussion at this level. This is a level that is personal and significant to each person in
some unique way. How you interpret it and what you decide about it is a personal choice
and experience.

To give you one example that relates to empathic nature, I would mention the subject of
channeling. I have had a very profound experience with channeling that I will not
recount here. What I will share is that the result of that experience has led me to
understand channeling as a means to tap into our higher natures. Whether we call these
higher natures spirit or whatever, is of no matter. We all have a higher nature.

From my channeling experience I learned to call my higher nature my "sovereign self." I

do not think that other beings use our bodies to speak during channeling, but that is
just my opinion. It merely involves greater parts of ourselves that speak, using
Dreamtongue, to convey information from our deepest levels. Still, the problem with
defining these experiences comes with defining beingness.

We do not really understand our own ultimate natures, so how can we understand
where to draw the lines between our consciousness and other levels of consciousness?
What is useful to know is that channeling is a way to tap into your own Gamma level. To
channel only requires that you learn to trust in yourself enough to let this level open up
inside of you. Channeling is nothing more than speaking out loud with your dream voice.
You can do it alone or with other people.

If you do work with channeling, try to record it through writing or on tape, so that you
can put it in your Empath's journal. You will be amazed at what can potentially come
through you. Many subjects open up at this level. The concept of the collective
consciousness of the planet; the collective unconscious; Jungian archetypes, and ideas
of a "universal mind" all come into view at this level of empathic communication. We
have barely skimmed the surface in this discussion.

"Walking between the Worlds" (The Delta of Gamma) If the last level is the place
where all "explanations fall short," you can imagine that this level will be even more of a
challenge to the intellect. The Delta level of Gamma refers to the "inner observer" , the
"inner eye," as the part of you that sees existence from the innermost level. This inner
observer is more like the "eyes of your soul."

The closest anecdotal information related to this level involves moving out of one's body
and into other dimensions, worlds, universes. Whether or not these dimensions and
worlds would be constructs of the brain or actual locations cannot be always determined
at this point in our development as a species. To explore this level further I would direct
you to books related to shamanic journeying and Eckankar.

"The Door" (the Gamma of Gamma) At this pure Gamma level we can only be aware of
the potential that we are each interconnected with the rest of existence. The pure state
of Gamma is where we are all connected and therefore have access to the "universe"
itself. It can be thought of as the "door in which we entered this existence" and the
"door by which we will exit."
If there is communication between worlds, if noncorporeal beings of any sort exist, this
would be the place through which those communications would occur. This is the place
of the great mystery. Here, our brains cannot wrap around the ultimate reality. Instead
we are challenged to find this door and to explore on our own. Some say it leads to a
great Abyss that cannot be traversed. Others say they have crossed that Abyss and
returned with new vision and inspiration. Whatever lies beyond what the human brain
can conceive/perceive is to be found within this "door" of the Gamma level.

Throughout this lesson you were introduced to a primer of Dreamtongue components.

So far we have identified 25 key levels of communication available to an Empath. What
is more important is that you get a feel for all of these parts, more than memorizing
them. The parts always work together into a whole tapestry of information.

Rarely, if ever, does any one part of Dreamtongue occur without all the others present in
some degree. Yet, as I mentioned before, learning about the parts will help you have
greater understanding in working with the whole. There is so much to share here, but
this is all that is necessary for this stage of your preliminary training. Understanding the
parts of the language will help you better listen to and interpret the flowing messages of
Dreamtongue occurring around you everyday.

You can use this lesson as a reference guide as you begin to notice Dreamtongue more
and more in your life. What lies ahead in future courses will bring all of this information
to life and will pull a veil away from your eyes. A veil that you did not even know was
there. To become an awakened Empath is something far greater than just realizing you
are an Empath. Your intuition will tell you when you are ready.

Lesson Eight Review

Dreamtongue, from the receptive end; to establish some basic guidelines for
interpreting empathic language components.

2. Beta language is empathic language conveyed through the body and through actions.

3. Alpha language is emotive language which conveys emotional and psychological


4. Theta language is mental language which conveys mental content.

5. Delta language is visual language which conveys direct and symbolic imagery.

6. Gamma language is the spiritual language which conveys holographic and symbolic

7. All levels of Dreamtongue occur together blended into a flow of information.

This concludes Lesson 8. Lesson 9, the final lesson for this course is next.

Stage Nine: The Expressive Stage

© 1996-2007 Jad Alexander All Rights Reserved

Welcome to the final stage of your preliminary training as an Empath. If you have
read each lesson in order and started each of the practices as described, then you have
set powerful wheels in motion. With that, you have activated your own empathic potential
and are nourishing its growth and development. The process of co-patterning has already
begun where your empathic mind and your waking mind are merging into one. This
process continues over time and sets in motion evolutionary stages that will be covered in
future lessons.

In stage eight you learned about twenty-five receptive levels of Dreamtongue and what
kind of information comes through each. You are now ready to begin learning about the
expressive side of Dreamtongue, which involves ways of communicating empathic levels
through writing, speaking, and interacting empathically. Dreamtongue is the language of
the Empath. It is born of your heart and flows through your actions, your eyes, and your
words. As you open up within yourself to the emerging empathic presence within you, your
awareness of Dreamtongue grows like a small sprout into an abundant healthy vine.

Expressing Dreamtongue is a creative act. Creativity is the key to accessing the

deepest inner levels of life and the abundant interactivity between all lifeforms. It involves
turning speech, written words, or any form of communication into a creative motion which
allows for all levels of Dreamtongue to flow. As I mentioned before, channeling is a direct
way to speak Dreamtongue, but channeling will not be the choice for everyone. The fact of
the matter is that channeling can happen in multiple forms. In some of the advanced
courses I will show you how you can actually channel empathic information through your
daily actions and conversations. In this final stage of your training you can begin to
understand the expressive levels of Dreamtongue and ultimately put the expressive and
receptive levels together to begin to master the language. I have a special course where I
teach Empaths who are familiar with Dreamtongue how to access Dreamtongue levels of
communication utilizing the English alphabet. The result of the course is to learn how to
"read names." I developed the system for "name reading" and used it in consultations for
years. It's amazing how much information can be accessed through the process.
Successful completion of this course prepares an Empath to deliver a professional service
to others. This service can be used for guidance, counseling, and training purposes.
There are five expressive levels of Dreamtongue. Expressing and emoting are parts of
Empath abilities that fall under the category of "effluence." Empaths generate effluence all
the time; either consciously or unconsciously. There is an "art" to effluence that can only be
mastered by advanced Empaths. By advanced I mean those that have truly been trained
and have developed clear skills sets and experience. In the final advanced levels of
coursework I will train you to be a "Master Empath" by taking you through intensive skill
development. For now I will introduce you to the subject of expressive Dreamtongue. By
learning the expressive levels you will learn to use the voice of an empath. By developing
the voice you will be able to deliver empathic messages through speaking. This will take
practice and time to perfect, but it is an exciting aspect of empath development

The Beta voice is the directive voice. It is good for giving orders, telling someone what to
do, making something happen, and getting things done.

Parents and teachers use a Beta voice when directing children. Leaders use a Beta voice
to direct followers. Coaches use a Beta voice to direct teams. Police use a Beta voice
when they ask for your ID. Any time you want to get something done you use a Beta voice
when it requires speaking. To generate a Beta voice requires that you be in a Beta state. It
requires energy, emphasis, clarity, strength, and steadiness. A Beta voice is calm, steady,
confident, and very direct. The more direct, the more truthful, the more accurate the
communication, the more Beta strength it has. The tone is steady, calm, and focused.
Shouting is not a Beta tone, yet the amplitude of the Beta voice can be increased when
there is sufficient strength to the intent. Shouting is usually the result of someone losing
control. A Beta voice can only be maintained when someone is truly in control of his or

Beta expressions deal with concrete and literal matters. "The box is heavy," or "I have
to work today." Beta expressions deal with obvious facts. When someone is speaking to
you with Beta expressions the communication is about literal or actual facts," the store is
two blocks south on the right side of the road." These expressions can be spoken or
written. A technical book or set of instructions is a good example of written Beta
expression. Practice your Beta voice by being a leader on a project and giving orders,
directing a play, or taking charge in a situation.

People who speak with predominantly Beta expressions are usually more literal or
concrete in their thinking, which tends to be confined to what their senses can detect. A
Beta personality is one that is confined intellectually by rigid ideas and thinking, but could
be gifted with physical skills. You will learn to identify Beta personality types in time. (along
with the other groups).

The Alpha voice is the persuasive voice. It is good for convincing, enticing, seducing,
encouraging, reassuring, emoting, and guiding. Therapists use an Alpha voice when talking
with a client. Mothers and fathers use an Alpha voice when encouraging or reassuring their
children. Lovers use an Alpha voice when seducing their partners. Singers use an Alpha
voice when they sing. Liars use an Alpha voice when they lie. An Alpha voice is one that
conveys and provokes emotion. A speaker might use an Alpha voice to deliver a
persuasive speech. It is the emotional content and degree of emotional stimulation that
determines the extent of the Alpha voice. An Alpha voice is one that is based upon
emotion, emotion of any sort for any purpose. A calm, loving, reassuring voice is an Alpha
voice. An angry, vicious voice is an Alpha voice. An Alpha voice delivers and provokes
emotional qualities. Any tone may be used with an Alpha voice. The tone is determined by
the emotion involved. As an Empath you will become more and more sensitive to the
emotional (Alpha) content of voices. To generate an Alpha voice involves experiencing an
emotion that is conveyed through your voice.

Alpha expressions often deal with reactions and responses to things. An Alpha
expression is usually something like, " I really don't like him," or," She makes me feel all
excited inside," or," That movie was so scary!" Alpha expressions deal with the relations
between people and things, and with the responses that something provokes. Someone
who uses Alpha expressions frequently is someone who is very sensitive and emotionally
responsive. An Alpha personality is someone who feels things very deeply and who is
largely driven by their emotions. (Sound familiar?) Alpha personalities are intuitive and tend
to be the ones who are aware of his or her own empathic nature. Practice your Alpha voice
by reading aloud poetry, singing a song, or trying to persuade someone to see your
viewpoint on a topic.

The Theta voice is the probing voice. It is good for questioning, investigating,
researching, inquiring, analyzing, evaluating, understanding, educating, training, and
penetrating. Lawyers use a Theta voice in the courtroom. Detectives use a Theta voice
when investigating a case. Consumers use a Theta voice when grilling a salesman before
buying an item. Students use a Theta voice when trying to learn a topic. Educators use a
Theta voice when explaining a topic. A Theta voice is one that probes for and utilizes
information. The Theta voice is information driven and oriented, not in the declarative way
of Beta, but in an analyzing, synthesizing, and penetrating way. The Theta voice is used to
reach, to probe, and to discover.

Theta expressions are primarily questions or statements made to illuminate the

nature of a fact. The more available the information the less the degree of Theta in your
voice. If you ask a grocer how much does a loaf of bread cost, you are using a very small
degree of a Theta voice. You are asking a question, so technically it is a Theta voice, but
the information is readily available. The grocer would gladly tell you the price. If you were a
prosecuting attorney and you were asking a defendant if he committed the crime, you
would be using a full Theta voice. The greater the intent to penetrate and to probe, the
stronger the Theta in the voice. In a self-actualized Empath the Theta voice can become
very strong and must be used carefully. A person who has a lot of Theta in their voice is
often a person of strong intellectual ability and has an analytical mind. A Theta personality
is shaped around logic and higher degrees of knowledge. A Theta voice can be conveyed
with clear and steady annunciation using varying tones. Practice your Theta voice by
conducting an interview, taking a class and asking lots of questions, or solve a mystery
through detective work.

Note: a demand for information is not a Theta voice, it is a Beta directive. The types of
voice you are using often changes several times in every conversation. As an Empath you
can sharpen your skills by observing the changes in voice during conversations with
people. Always note these observations in your Empaths journal. What you will learn in
time is how voices get layered with different levels of empathic activity. In time you will be
able to empathically "read" a person based upon the voice of the person.
The Delta voice is the pure voice of the Empath. Since Delta is the nest for your
empathic nature, and "rests" within your unconscious mind, you may have never used or
encountered a Delta voice. The Delta voice can be used to convey empathic messages,
which are messages that are not heard by the ears or seen by the eyes. This is a very
advanced topic but I did want to introduce you to it now. Dreamtongue is the Delta voice of
Nature. Nature speaks to you all the time in a Delta voice. A Delta voice can be a sign, a
symbol, an omen, a gesture, or an action. A Delta voice can be conveyed through words,
when the words contain symbolic and hidden meaning. I recommend eighteen months of
work as an Empath before pursuing a fully developed Delta voice. I usually offer Delta
voice training as an internship for serious students. This means that everything that you do
over the next year and a half as an Empath will prepare you for using the Delta voice.
Anyone interested in pursuing advanced empath training will need to get academic credit
for this course. For more information on how to do that just write me at .

Since people have not yet consciously developed the Delta voice in our society, we can
look at the Delta voice of the world around you. Delta messages come as signs and
omens. After decades of work with a mystical system called the Qabalah, the number
eleven became a significant Delta message for me. Everywhere I would go and everything
I would do, I would somehow always encounter the number eleven. It still happens now
when I need guidance or a confirmation with something I am doing. The study of omens
and signs is the study of Delta messages. The experience of synchronicity is a form of
Delta language. Synchronicity is when two apparently unrelated things happen together as
if they were connected. Synchronicity is the result of the interconnectedness of all things.
Synchronicity would be something like one day saying," Gee, I think I am going to go back
to school," and on that same day you get a package in the mail from a local college inviting
you to attend a program. It is like life talking back to you, guiding and confirming your
direction in life.

The Gamma voice is the "sovereign" voice. This voice can take many forms, but it is
always the voice of your greater self, the part of you that is unconfined and unlimited. It
does not matter whether this is only a hypothetical construct, a psychological state, or a
spiritual phenomenon. It is the direct filtering of your consciousness as an energy field that
is inter-linked to all other energy fields. Information from the sovereign level is very difficult
for the conscious mind to process because there is no verbal language to facilitate it. What
happens in channeling is that a person opens up to their sovereign level and lets "the
energy pour into the mind." The mind then has to translate that energy into words and
states. The problem is that there are no words which directly translate the energy from
Gamma. Here your mind has to be creative at its maximum potential. Theoretically, at the
Gamma level you have access to the past, present, and future. The visionary power
available in Gamma can be overwhelming to some individuals. Opening up Gamma is
accessing the unlimited potential of consciousness. It taps into many levels of the self,
most of which are unexpressed and connected to higher levels of reality. I do not teach
channeling in early Empath training, I only mention it in context so that if you decide to
work with it you will have a sense of what you are getting into.

Your ability to work with all of the voices will develop as you observe the forms of voice
occurring around you. The more observant you become as an Empath the more you will
develop. Observation is your first power and experience is your best teacher in this field.
What is difficult for most of us is that it is a lonely experience. There are no Empath
Universities, Empath Temples, or even Empath Clubs. (?) The experiences you have, and
the needs you have are virtually left unaddressed, and unsupported. This is why I
encourage the development of Empath Circles which I will explain at the end of this lesson.
This completes the introductory lesson of Dreamtongue, covering the receptive and the
expressive levels of empathic communication. If you are interested in pursuing the full
coursework then I encourage you to sign up with The School of Empath Psychology. There
are no fees – it simply sets up a student record for you so that you will have a transcript for
your work.

As a supplement I would like to introduce you to the Nine Empathic Cycles which govern
all communication & experience.

The Nine Cycles

Now one final lesson to help you get started with functioning as an Empath. There are nine
empathic cycles which determine the types of messages you will receive through empathic
language. These cycles affect you and the people you encounter. When interpreting
Dreamtongue for yourself or for others it is useful to be acquainted with these cycles. I
teach these cycles to people who are interested becoming empathic counselors. You may
choose to do some counseling or advising as an Empath and will find this knowledge
useful. If you do not choose to work as a professional Empath, this training and information
can enhance any work you do and all relationships in your life.

The Nine Cycles of Dreamtongue

There are nine cycles that can be perceived empathically in a "reading" or empathic
counseling session. The cycles tend to follow each other but this pattern is easily disrupted
by conscious choices and actions. Free will is always a powerful influence on empathic
information. The visualization for understanding these cycles is to see them as a set of nine
concentric rings. All nine cycles are always active but usually one at a time predominates.
The predominant ring emerges as the outermost ring and will manifest in external events.
The cycles also help you put the empathic messages you receive into a context.

Cycle One - (solar) This cycle involves the process of discovering and developing the
Self/Identity. During this time people are focused on "who am I", "what is my life about", the
roles they play in their lives, etc. The big question during this phase is, "Who am I?", "Who
do I want to be?", "Where do I belong?" and so forth.

Cycle Two- (lunar) This cycle involves the he process of growing and changing. During
this cycle a person is experiencing many changes and/or the opportunity to change. This is
typically a very unstable time, leaving the person with feelings of uncertainty, and often
confusion. The big questions are "What's going on?", "What's going to happen?", and
"What choices do I make?" It is common for people to seek consultation during this cycle.
Cycle 3 -- (terrestrial) This cycle involves the process of karma and responsibility. During
this cycle a person is feeling that life is getting very complicated and sometimes
overwhelming. Many energies tend to be at work during this phase, yet changes are not
very big during this cycle. On the surface things appear to be stuck or staying the same.
Often there is a persistent issue or challenge that must be met during this phase. The big
questions tend to focus on, "What is the work for me during this time?"

Cycle 4 -- (pyrrhic [fire]) This cycle involves process of skill and mastery. During this
cycle a person is experiencing a sense of optimism, success, and overall sense of control
over life. Passion and drive are strong during this phase. People tend not to seek out
readings/counseling during this cycle, but often in a session it is possible to discern
approximately when the cycle will emerge.

Cycle 6 -- (aquatic [water]) This cycle involves the process of healing and regeneration.
During this cycle a person is feeling the need to withdraw from the pace of things, often
from relationships and responsibilities. Energy appears to be low and outward action is not
the priority during this time. The priority is to heal and take care of oneself. Often there is
not a specific question during this cycle. There is more of a sense of "searching for

Cycle 7 - (aerial [air]) This cycle involves the processes of creativity and relating
(relationships). During this cycle a person is primarily focused on a relationship or
relationships. Social events and important connections are made during this time. When
relationships are stable, creativity seems to be the focus during this cycle. Issues tend to
be focused on others.

Cycle 8 - (geometric) This cycle involves the processes of intellect and vocation. During
this cycle issues of career and direction are prominent themes, this includes education.
Career changes and directions are often the key issues during this cycle. Often choices
and opportunities are abundant. Intellect is the strong force during this phase (whether that
is a good or a bad thing), therefore knowledge and facts are more important than intuition

Cycle 9 - (implicate) This cycle involves the processes of empathic awareness and
""mystical communion". By mystical communion I mean an increasing awareness of a
reality greater than oneself and all the implications that follow. During this cycle deeper
levels of meaning are being revealed about any and all of the other cycles, often through
symbolism, dreams, and spiritual revelations. The predominant issues center on, "What is
the meaning of life," and "What in life are my alignments?" Synchronicities are often
abundant during this time.

The dominant cycle will influence the types of activity and messages that you receive
through empathic language. Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma levels all process the
nine cycles. There is a very special pattern that is revealed when you take the empathic
levels of communication and combine them correctly with the nine cycles. I will share this
pattern in a later course. Over time you will learn how to determine the dominant cycle of
another person. Perception of the active cycle normally occurs at the Theta level, as a
