Empath 101 conclusion


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 herself.


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 something."

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 alone.

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 thought that enters your mind. It is usually accompanied by other empathic messages and alpha associations. As you grow as an Empath, your sensitivity to the cycles will become quite adept. In the meantime you can use your Empath tool's to determine the present cycle you are in or that of another person.


Now, on to a topic that will help you accelerate your growth as an Empath:

ECHO (Empath Circles / Houses of Origin)

An Empath Circle is a study group of budding and mature Empaths who meet for the purpose of supporting each other, sharing resources, and empowering their development as Empaths. Anyone can form an Empaths Circle but there are guidelines that need to be considered. Anyone with experience in working with groups, clubs, organizations, etc. knows that group work is potentially very hazardous territory. Whenever people gather in groups many things begin to happen and "these same things" have happened in EVERY group since the beginning of time. Personalities emerge, compete, manipulate, act out, and generally undermine the group unity. No one sets out to do that but it tends to happen anyway. This always happens and should be expected. What can make the difference is a commitment by each member to develop and participate in a plan to handle these issues as they arise. The key is open and honest communication. Any issue that is not openly addressed creates an empathic illness in the group. If you would like to sponsor a School of Empath Psychology study group in your community send a letter of intent to:

Here are some general guidelines for forming an Empaths Circle.


Forming an Empaths Circle/ House of Origin (ECHO)

1. Before you start an Empaths Circle, ask yourself the following questions:


 Why do you want to do this? What are your motives?

  • What do you want to get out of the circle?

     Would it be better for someone else to start the circle? Why or why not?

  • Would it be better for you to join an existing circle if available?
  • Explain your commitment to starting and maintaining the circle.
  • Explain your commitment to the health and equanimity of the circlle
  •  Are you comfortable as an organizer or would you seek an organizer?

    Write your answers in detail on paper. Be prepared to share what you write with anyone interested in joining the circle. Nothing should be secretive or hidden- this is key to setting a quality level to the energy you will be maintaining.

    2. The goals of an Empaths Circle are support, fellowship, and growth. A stable and harmonious environment is essential. Plan when, where, and how you are going to meet. Plan how you will let others know about the circle.


    3. Ask anyone who is interested in participating in the circle to answer all the questions in #1 in writing. The purpose of writing this information is not as a commitment but as an expression of openness which is key to the Empaths Circle.

    4. Empaths who are compatible in nature will be drawn together. Personalities can be very different and the empathic connection still very strong. People must be free to come and go as they wish but this is better done with respect to the integrity of the group. New members must be accepted by all existing members. This is not an elitist membership requirement, it is a empathic necessity. Any unmanaged conflict or tension in an Empaths Circle gets magnified many times over by the nature of the group. The group must be unanimous in all of its decisions or the power of the group is lost. Although you may be the organizer, there can be no leader, for the group must lead itself. If you have a problem with this concept then you will not be effective as a leader of an Empath Circle. Each member must contribute equally. If you find followers collecting around you then please note that you are in for serious trouble. You do not have to take my word for it. You can find out the hard way if necessary. I have over thirty years of experience and have many stories I could share. If you have the need to have followers then please do it through a different type of group. Take this as experienced advice. If the people who want to join the circle are unwilling or unable to be equal partners with you then you are in for some powerful dynamics of the unconscious, which will have a tremendous cost for everyone involved. Please read this paragraph again before proceeding.

    5. I recommend limiting the group to eight Empaths. The circle needs to be intimate and fully available to each person. If it gets too large the dynamics become unmanageable and the focus is easily lost. A circle can be formed with as little as two empaths but should not go larger than eight. A vital and healthy ECHO may split up into two new groups, which is a positive direction for all involved.

    6. Put a limit on your meeting time in order to keep the energy focused. Two hours represents a good upper limit to work with. There is flexibility here but be sure that you are able to maintain a focus with the time you use. The structure of the time is part of the support which benefits the growth of the Empaths.

    7. In the same way that you chose an totem for your empathic nature, you can select a empathic totem for the circle. It is best to do this when there are two or more of you, rather than doing it on your own. The consensus in choosing the totem initiates the beginning power of the circle. From that point Empaths will be attracted to your circle by the nature of the totem. An Empaths Circle is also called a "house of origin" because it can function like the nest or birthplace of your Empath abilities. An ideal Empaths Circle would function as an empathic family or support group. Yet, keep in mind, distinct and realistic boundaries are necessary for healthy relationships.

    8. The agenda of the meeting is to be set by all participants. The organizer can keep a clipboard or notebook for each person to write in the agenda for the meeting. One agenda item per person should be recorded. If someone wants more than one it can be requested from the group. Although a group unity is formed, the power of the circle comes from the individuality of each Empath and the contributions made by each.

    9. The style, format, and character of the circle are shaped by the participants. You will see the circle grow and evolve over time. In the same way that you practice your own personal empowerment, this is a way to receive group empowerment, which can potentially be an incredible experience.

    10. Any problems between Empaths or between an Empath and the rest of the circle should be dealt with openly and honestly. This point cannot be stressed enough. A persistent problem that cannot be resolved usually represents one or two people who do not feel compatible with the circle. This issue should be handled with kindness and support. The person who is unhappy with the circle for any reason can be helped to start a separate circle. The existing circle should offer help and resources to get this person started. Note: this section pertains to normal disagreements and mature behavior. If there is a member who is disruptive and unstable, creating chaotic and unreasonable problems, then the issue has to be dealt with in another manner. Unfortunately, such unstable personality types are drawn to this kind of work so you will have to be alert and aware of this potential problem. I will not elaborate on this issue here but I do have supportive information for anyone conducting an Empath study group.

    11. When an existing circle is full, an interested Empath should be guided to an available circle or helped to start a new circle. Keeping a waiting list is a good idea for a couple of reasons. It gives opportunity to new members but it also tests out the motives & sincerity of the applicants. Anyone who is willing to wait for membership, and does so, is usually a more solid candidate. Some one who angers quickly or who is impatient is going to be a problem in the group anyway.

    12. Circle time can be used to share experiences, learn information, practice skills, create, celebrate, and renew energy. How you do this is determined by the group. Keep in mind, that when choices are not unanimously agreed upon, there will be an energy imbalance in the group. Working towards a unanimous goal greatly amplifies the empathic qualities of the group.

    13. You will notice many interesting things happening in the group. You will notice people taking on specific types of roles. A Beta Empath will likely emerge, one who generates a lot of influence and activity; An Alpha Empath will appear, one who is like the thermometer of the group, sensitive to the currents of the circle; A Theta Empath will emerge, one who is always probing and analyzing (it is the Theta Empath who is likely to try to be the leader, not the Beta/ the Beta Empath is usually unaware of the influence they generate); there will be a Delta Empath who is very quiet and deep; and there will be a Gamma Empath who is spiritually focused and who often works with some form of channeling. The truth is, most Empaths are a combination of these qualities in fascinating ways.

    14. It is important for the circle to develop its own code of ethics. Each circle must have its own code of ethics shaped by its specific members. New Empaths must feel comfortable with the existing code of ethics and should contribute something to it at some time.

    15. Someone should record the content of the meetings for the benefit of anyone who is absent. The circle will need to develop a benign policy regarding attendance. Erratic attendance creates irritate energy but a flexible circle is a healthy circle.

    16. No Empath should ever dominate another. A mature Empath must show as much respect to a budding Empath as he or she would expect in return.

    17. Be creative and have fun. Play is a form of expression and growth. A joyful circle is a powerful one. A somber heavy circle is likely to be empathically constipated! Always be aware of the personality of your Empaths Circle and encourage open discussion of it.


    In this course I have given you all the essential information for growing and developing as an Empath. Your best learning and growth will come from direct experience and application of this information. There are volumes more of information to share with you, which will come in the coursework ahead, but for the purposes of your training you are now well equipped. This is the beginning of an incredible journey. It is a journey of awakening and of personal transformation.

    Listen to the language of Dreamtongue in your life and you will always be guided and supported in path. Listen with your heart, your soul, and your mind. In time you will speak and understand the language as if you had always done so. This is only the beginning.
