Introducing the Empath Support Community Site.

ESCFor a while now, I’ve been thinking about creating an empath community.

Yes, I know there are already some out there, but they seem restrictive and having had my membership terminated on one of those communities (why, I’ve not real idea. Maybe they didn’t like the odd blog entry I put there) I felt it was time to give people a place where they can be themselves.

The problem I have observed with other communities is that they are controlling. They will demand people act in a certain way and if you fall out of line, you will be kicked.

I’ve also mentioned this to be the case with chat rooms.

Personally, I don’t see how one can create anything worthwhile and long-lasting if there are so many rules and restrictions in place.

With this in mind, I finally felt it was time to consolidate all the empath resources I have created on the web and centralize it into a one stop shop that people can join, connect and share their own thoughts, ideas and concerns.

For all those Empaths, Highly sensitive people and psychics who are looking for a place to be, the Empath Support and Community site may be for you.

There you will find the chat room, this blog, my empath website, groups, forums, and the ability to create your own profile, befriend others and blog what’s on your mind.

As with the chat room, all you need do is remain courteous and not attack another and you are welcome.

This is an open group and all you need is a valid e-mail address to join.

You can find the ESC at (the blog will be at until domain mapping have been worked out.)

The hidden astral world series – Omen

The follow series of blogs will contain some very disturbing and, for many, frightening information. I find myself in the unique situation of being able to pass on uncommon knowledge.  I’m not one to dramatize things, so when I say read at your own risk, then take note. For those who wish to gain a fuller understanding of the denizens of the astral worlds around us, then proceed by all means.


In my last entry, I explained how the seeds of doubt were always being planted in my mind and I needed something that I could not refute.

Astral experiences could be explained away too easily and 3D experiences could be the result of people following logical trains of thought to a logical end. Just because they agreed with you didn’t mean they were right.  You don’t know for sure if they’re saying it to seem like they had the experience of that it really happened.Plus the mind is too easily swayed.

The only thing that would really work was a being that both belonged to the 3D world and the astral world at the same time that I could actually talk with.

That was a pretty tall order, as you can imagine. I don’t know about other people, but in my experience, such beings are not exactly thick on the ground, and those who are, rarely reveal themselves, let alone make themselves available. If such a being did exist, it was hardly going to fall into my lap.

Ironically, that’s what happened.  Well, not fall into my lap, but came into my life.

One day, a whole lot of synchronicities that had been building up for a while, suddenly came together and allowed me to start talking to someone who was exactly that. A being bound to two worlds at once.

This being has gone by many names and for the purpose of this exercise; we’ll refer to him as Omen.

I won’t go into the details of how we met and the circumstances that led me to talking to him as that’s not that important. What is important is that he’s agreed to give his perspective on things from the point of view of a dark entity.

You might ask why I’d want to put such information out there? Mostly to make people aware of what is happening on other levels, and more importantly, to help them become more in tune with their environment, and the inherent dangers out there.

Too many are not in tune nowadays. They dismiss and ignore all the warning signs and evade responsibility for the events in their own lives.

If someone uses this information to become aware and work with nature, rather than trying to subjugate it, then it is well worth it.

It will also explain many of the experiences people have, but make them think they are crazy.

So, who exactly is Omen?

*deep breath*

Well, that’s an interesting question with a fascinating answer.

In a nutshell, he is a demonic being who has been bound to a human body for many, many thousands of years.  Every time the body dies, he immediately finds himself in a new one with full memory of his past ones. As a result, for him, it’s been one long continuous life.

He has been doing this for a mind boggling sixty thousand years.  (Probably give or take a few.)

Sometimes he’s attached to a male body, sometimes female. The current body is in its early twenties.  He’s actually not in the body, but outside it. He uses it like a marionette, but is attached enough to show emotion and react to normal body functions.

Now you’re probably thinking by now: Okay, Gary has finally lost it. Not only is it impossible but even if it was true, how likely is it that he would be chatting to this demonic being on a regular basis?

More to the point, why would he take the word of a twenty something year old just because they claim to be this being? Anyone can do that. Anyone can do some research and pretend to be anyone.

And yes, this is true. If you dedicated yourself full time to studying up all the information on the net on history and metaphysics, you may be able to pull such a thing off.

And yes, I can ask him any question, and he will have an answer. He can reel off historical facts and approximate dates and completely obscure information that would make your head spin.  It’s worth noting, though, that he can only relay that information relative to where he was at the time.

It’s no different to saying, hey I lived in the 21st century, and someone asks, well, what happened with so and so on such and such a date, and unless it was something really noteworthy, chances are you would not have a clue. Then they would say: Oh, you must be lying as though being there means you’re the repository of all information that ever existed. Even people alive today could not tell you a fraction of what has happened in the world during their lifetime.

But yes, he has the historical knowledge.

He also has an abundance of metaphysical knowledge that puts me to shame. It is obscure, abundant and he mentions things that I had only intuited over the years. Things that just aren’t on the net.

But, you might be thinking, if this person is real, then surely they can do, well, spirit type stuff.

And yes, he can indeed do the things you’d expect an astral demonic being to be able to do and he has done this, upon request and on demand and repeatedly when I have asked.

And yes, the experience I had was real enough that I experienced a definite shift in my senses that was more than just imagination. (Like if you stub your toe. You know you did because you feel the pain in no uncertain terms.)

But this is not about my own experiences with him. This is about the knowledge he has.

I’ve tossed around the idea with Omen of doing an interview for a while, and he’s kindly written a few things about the perspectives of being from the so called ‘dark’ side of things.

Now, to be perfectly clear, this is not a channelling. This is not someone who is possessed by a demon or someone who is being influenced. This is an actual demonic being.

The following series of blogs will be about what he has written, but next there will be a personal introduction from him.

Empath Chat room – The room of synchronicity.



empathBefore I continue on with the current series (which will continue for a few months), I wanted to just to mention the Empath / Spiritual support chat room.

While its intention is for empath and spiritual support, it is, and always was intended as a place of synchronicity.

For those who don’t know what that is (and think it’s only the name of an old record by The Police), synchronicity is about meaningful coincidences that help you along your path.

It was a term first coined by Carl Jung and then made popular in the 1990s by The Celestine Prophecy written by James Redfield.

The interesting thing about synchronicity is that the more you focus on it, the more it happens, and the quicker you move along your chosen path.

Years ago, there used to be a chat room on the Celestine Vision website. Many people came and believed it was a spiritual chat room. It wasn’t. It was a room of synchronicity. Many people found what they were looking for there, and through it all, there were many dramas, turf wars, alliances, and connections of people that lead to long friendships.

I was a mod there for years, but saw the end before it came. I was prompted to create my own chat room, which was geared towards Empaths. Initially, I did this for a then friend, but she did not follow through. Regardless, I kept the payments up and eventually people started to come in and stay. (And one of the people I made a mod stayed in the room for nearly a year before it finally started to take off.)

Today, this chat room is alive and healthy, and receives very interesting visitors.

It’s a mix between dark and light, support and acceptance. People come there and find just what they need most of the time.

So if you’re looking for a place to connect to others, you are welcome to join this room.

It’s a simple interface. (Java based) No ads and need to register. You can if you wish, though.

The rules are simple. Be nice to each other and don’t invalidate another.

You can find the chat room at on my website here.

The hidden astral world series – The evolving story.

The follow series of blogs will contain some very disturbing and, for many, frightening information. I find myself in the unique situation of being able to pass on uncommon knowledge.  I’m not one to dramatize things, so when I say read at your own risk, then take note. For those who wish to gain a fuller understanding of the denizens of the astral worlds around us, then proceed by all means.


They say be careful what you ask for because you may just well get it. There is profound truth in this statement.

In past blogs, I’ve proclaimed myself to be a sceptic, in spite of all the things I’ve experienced. There was always this niggle of doubt of it being all in my mind.

You might ask why I’d think such a thing and my answer would be: Because the stuff I was coming up with and what was happening was more contrived and unbelievable than the worst Hollywood movie.

Always being in the right place, at the right time and finding out the right information from the right people which would always reveal more of the picture.

Either my imagination was running wild along with everyone else’s or this was all really happening.

The frustrating part of telling my story is that I don’t get all the information at once. I get them in layers. Every layer brings a new dimension to what is really going on, and reveals new people and past events that explain what and why things happened.

Every time I think I get to a stage where I say, ‘ah huh, now I understand’ something new would pop up creating a new ‘OMG moment.’

My awareness of new information depends on what I already knew, and generally what I got tended to reflect what I’m able to put into perspective. In other words, I have to first remember in order to make sense of the information.

It’s like a story with many layers. Each layer adds a new dimension to it and brings greater understandings and ‘ah ha’ moments.

And the main problem has been that when I came here, I had to forget everything.

My book, I am The Phoenix, discusses many of those memories and stories and those who are involved, and it’s an evolving story. I could endlessly update and rewrite it, but there has to be a cut of point somewhere.

And while my story is written as per the events I recorded and journaled, the story is so incredible that I had to stop and think: No one will believe this. Even I found it hard to believe, and it happened to me.

In spite of the fact that I was as sure as I could be that my experiences were real, I still wanted more proof. I wanted something that I could not refute. Something that I could take and look at and say, yes, this is real and I cannot deny it.

And then one day, I got just that.

Somethings you have to go one step back in order to go two steps forward.

1-forward-2-backThings are going along nicely for a change. You’ve had a revelation. You’ve reached an epiphany and suddenly things are flow and life is good. It can only get better from here on in.

Then suddenly, without warning, you find yourself back at square one. Things feel just as bad, if not worse, and you fall into despair because you were doing so well… and now you’re not.

That anger that you felt you had gotten past before and has allowed you to move on is back in full force and you even feel angrier than before.

Or it might be some trauma, or fear, or resentment, or lack of self-confidence.

Sound familiar?

What happened?

This is a very common scenario, especially for those on the spiritual path. For them it’s 2 steps forward and 1 step back. It’s very frustrating and most don’t really understand what is going on.

So let’s look at what is really happening.

There will indeed be times when we feel like we’re making headway. We are moving forward so fast and feeling so amazing that we feeling that nothing can stop us.

Then we hit that wall. Ouch! Why?

If we’ve faced and conquered our demons, so to speak, then why are they back?

The truth is, you haven’t conquered them fully. You’ve just dealt with one aspect of them. It’s allowed you to reach a new understanding, but there is still more work to do. You may revisit the same thing over and over, each time chipping away at another piece of it until finally you have removed the entire block, and are really ready to move onto new things.

This is normal. It’s not always possible to deal with something in its entirety, especially if it’s deep, long term and part of your belief system.

You have to take it in stages. You have to look at it from different angles, and each stage can feel almost the same, but there are subtle differences.

Or if it is the same, then you’ve not retained what you learned, and you need to have a refresher in what you needed to know.

Life is a process. We can move forwards and backward at the same time, and sometimes you need to move backwards in order go forward.

Remember, if something isn’t there within you to begin with, you wouldn’t be facing it. So you need to deal with it according to your abilities so you can heal it.

Healing can take a long time. There is no time limit to how long it may take. Some feel embarrassed about having the same issues come up over and over again. They may feel like a broken record, but that’s just how it goes. Eventually, if you keep at it, you will heal and get past those things that hold you back.

The problem is that most people get discouraged and give up. They forget how much progress they actually made.

This is the worst thing you can do, though. Giving up will never get you to where you desire to be.

Yes, it can be painful, and yes, you may feel like you’ll never get there, but this I promise you. Keep at it, and you will succeed. Things will shift around for you to make it happen.

Life is a process of creation. You are the creator. Trust in the flow and know that you can’t help but get there in the end, no matter how bad things seem right now.
