“Dear Empaths,” is an Inspiring book-length guide and love letter to the Empaths who think we don’t belong.

Dear Empaths,  (The Book).

My name is Alison Nappi , and I have waited my whole life to write this book length love letter to you. While I was waiting, I lived out the terror and the pain of my empathic path, slipping through the cracks in the floorboards, and drinking from the wrong bottles and finding myself and the people I was holding in the roots of the nerves at the base of my spine.

The language and form is different there. A jibberish of sensation, emotion, and shapes that can only be dreamed by the roots of things. Everything that lead up to this moment now, to who and what we are right now... it’s in all of us. 

It’s in the memories of our blood. The sensation of the sands of time in our gallbladders. The secrets our hearts are keeping. The wisdom of the uterine lining. The whisper in the wind of our lungs.

It is what meaning we make of these body-dreams, how we channel the sensations that clue us in to every subtle and invisible movement happening around us that determines our experience.

It is speaking to us.  And the beauty and the terror of it makes us weep.  

Empaths can detect and uncover a timeless and cosmic, deep-rooted historical narrative under our own skins. Taken literally or metaphorically, the ancient intelligence of its design reveals the world to us in a whole new way. 

Empaths can leverage our unique perspectives, increase our presence and awareness with the use of applied skill, and see entirely new actualities that are in our power to create. Empaths can learn how to channel this mighty current, instead of drowning in it. 

Our surrender to this flow of wildness and wonder can help us learn how to steer our vessels with the tides of the world soul rising and falling. Empaths can learn cosmic navigation. We can feel our ways forward in the direction of that which we wish to experience. We can effect direction magnetics and the bio-elemental forces of light-and-lightning.

Empaths can lead the charge into greater compassion, adeptness-in-depth and the illumination of what has always been there but been hidden from view. Even the most high powered microscopes cannot reveal what Empaths already know: 

We just have to feel our ways there.  When Empaths have mastered their gifts and step into leadership positions, the world will become a more compassionate place.

This book, is the knowledge gathered from tens of thousands of hours of devoted work to feeling, translating, interpreting and integrating these universally-valuable stories, and seducing them note-by note from the sky, into grounded knowledge to address and illuminate our gifts.

As you can imagine, there are many logistical costs that come with a project of this kind of time, soul, heart and body commitment, and I need you, my loves, if I am going to make this happen. Writing a book (well) takes lots of time, and requires a team of professionals to arrive from manuscript to printed publication.

The total cost of the publication and all of the time, designers, specialist contributors, artists, reward providers, editors, typesetters, printing and publication costs (50%), compounded payment processing fees (up to 10%), legal and advertising costs (30%) that go into doing a project like this correctly and completely are currently estimated to be $30,000 (or higher).

I will be cutting my consultant hours drastically to meet my goal of having this book completed and shipping by November 2019, but this is only possible with your support. It is necessary to reach my funding goal to make that possible. As I receive donations I will be able to decrease my consulting work and write more, faster, wilder and with diamond clarity. I will be able to speed up the process by hiring other professionals to prepare the publication as I go instead of waiting in each stage separately before I can move the project forward.

This will also allow me to continue working with fellow empaths via my free Empaths Empowerment Movement facebook group , my upcoming LIVE Empaths Empowerment Movement Support Group , and secure the location and services for Empaths at my upcoming "Dear Empaths, Retreat" for Summer 2019. Because I need to keep being 'on the ground' with my empathic peers. I can't sit by and say/do nothing. I need to be with you. In word. In deed. 

You see, a book like this requires me to surrender my whole being to it. For this to live beyond me, for it's body to hold it's blazing spirit, for every word to sing with light, I must give myself to it completely. I must let it consume me until I am the essence of the medicine that it is meant to be. Nothing less will do.

Then it will live. It will find its way from the records in the stars and the roots, to the hundreds of millions of aching empathic hearts gasping for breath right now.

I can feel them. I can feel you. And I am called. Please help me to fulfill my sense of purpose in creating and getting this book of love and practical guidance for empaths and HSP's out into the world.

It makes me breathless just to think about how we can make such a big difference when we unify. How we can help empathic children learn early so they don't have to go through what we did and they can claim the power of their gifts much younger than we were able to.

I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you, my empathic tribe. It was you that held me when I wailed. You that encouraged me to keep writing. You that inspired my visions. You that showed me everyday when I felt lost in a vacuum that I was not alone. You who helped shape me. And you who I am writing for.

Because I need to show you I love you. I need to. And you can read more rough draft excerpts from this upcoming book on my blog , like:

Thank you for helping me share my life-work, empowering, inspiring and supporting Empaths all over the world.

5 Prayers for the Empathic Free-Fall

1. Make my compass true. Let it show me true north, where the star of my renewal is. With this tiny spark, I will feel my way through the darkness and back home to my true power.

2. Let me remember my wings. They are no less real than my empathy, and many cannot see that either. But it is real, and so am I. Give me the courage to outstretch the divinity folded into my shoulder blades, and catch my own breath, returning to the wild world as winged and divine.

3. Let all that is lost, make me lighter and free. May all that is worth finding at the bottom of the canyon be revealed. In a revelation that can only reach me in my moments of surrender, may I find that my treasure lies right where I’ve fallen.

4. Let me not lose myself, but find myself. The place where the world ends and I begin, holding an allness that makes me tremble in awe, is where I live today. A holy thing hidden behind a tattered old curtain in a room that hasn’t existed since I built it and surrendered it back into the sands of time.

5. May Grace and Unfailing Love reign supreme on me today. Even if I’m blinded, even if it hurts so much I have gone numb, even when I refuse my gift and service, even when I fall into shadow. It is then, and it is there where the attributes of Grace and Love will meet me like nurses and sing to me like mothers, until I feel again. Until my willingness returns. Until my perception has healed and I remember why I came to begin with.

Dear Empaths,

What's on my mind today is how much it hurts to hold it all in.

How sometimes the overwhelming suffering Empaths (and everyone) experiences is overflowing, and to protect others, to protect what we think love is, to protect ourselves from abuse and shame, it has nowhere to go.

Yet, it is already located somewhere. And if we do not find avenues to express the emotions that we need at the intensity required to let them go so as not to disturb others, they may come out in other ways.

Autoimmune conditions.
Organ distress.
Psychosis presenting trauma symptoms.
Feelings of innate wrongness.
Hatred, turned inward.

If you are feeling this way today, or any other day, please do what you can to surrender. That is, when you cannot hold it anymore, and you cannot let go of it either, lay it at the throne. Ask that it be transformed, and redelivered to you, clean and fresh and new.

Then fall asleep.
Or take a walk.
Or chop the wood and carry the water.
Or weep and wail.

Even a scream in the darkness, can be a prayer.
You are not alone. We are out here with you.

Dear Empaths, I know not all of you can make it to each Empathic Support Group, so some of you have asked for recordings. Here is a private video just for our subscribers who would like to tune in and commune with us at your leisure.
