This video is to announce the suspension of this series. A few years ago, I was going to write the book “Empath’s Dilemma,” but felt it would take too long. I then decided to create these videos and again, I felt that time is running out. The reason I felt that is that everything has accelerated the past three years with the Covid-19 plan-demic, and humanity has bought the fearmongering rhetoric and hysteria put out by the media, and as a result, most went further into denial. I feel major changes are going to be happening soon that will shake humanity to the core, and the Earth herself. With that, I’ve decided to change my focus and intent and go back to where I left off on my journey of self-discovery, and address the issues I have been unconsciously denying and avoiding. I don’t know if I’ll be making any more videos, but I thank you for subscribing and watching my videos.

New Age health and wellness is basically a merging of East and West, with Eastern philosophies, religions and healing modalities, mixed with Western philosophies and religion. Much of the Eastern healing modalities have been shunned by Western medicine, and have been adopted by the New Age movement. While Eastern healing modalities have much to offer, they, like Western healing, are all based in denial, denial and suppression of feelings and emotions. While some New Age practitioners claim they’re providing a wholistic service, they’re not, as they are only dealing with the symptoms and not the cause.

I discuss the movie, “The Matrix,” and the scene of the woman in the red dress. Society has this fear based mental that there’s an external enemy that needs to be overcome. Seeing the external system as corrupt is but a reflection of what one is doing internally. There are two main control aspects in society, and that’s politics and religion, although there are others. The system uses the power of lies, omission, avoidance and denial, and is the “game” they play to control the masses. Not aware of the unseen role of denial, you’re unconsciously a part of the system. Unless you know how the game works, no matter how you try to win and change the system, you get caught up in a no-win situation. The only way to win is to not play, and to do that, one needs to end their denials and be real, the opposite of the system.

Attachments are an issue when trying to heal, as it involves one’s fear of losing that person. Non-denial based Meditation is a great tool to help uncover and release your attachments. Having an “Empathic” partner with the same healing intent, can help in guiding you to finding and releasing your attachments. Attachments are usually found on the throat, heart, or your sexuality, and also on your chakras. Download a free ebook on non-denial based meditations from my website at, www.shenreed.com/book1.html

It’s easier to feel/see other people’s denials than your own, and while that’s a start, the second part of this experience is that you need to ask yourself. What am I denying expressing? If I’m denying, then why... and the questions go on and on. Probably the first on the list is the fear of expression. It’s easier to be real with strangers than with friends, family and one’s intimate partner. Becoming aware of your denials, and choosing to end them, is a step toward self-empowerment.

Society has this mass-conscious belief that men are physically stronger, rational and logical thinkers, while women are emotional, irrational and the weaker sex. But the real battle is the inner one, between one’s Spirit (male) and Soul (female) aspects of our Being. The Soul (feelings and emotions) are dominated and controlled by the mind, with its logic and reason. This inner battle is also being reflected in the outer battle. To heal this dilemma, Heart (love) presence is required to be the unconditional connection between Spirit and Soul. What we have now, ranges from a partial Heart connection (conditional love), to the complete heartlessness of rage, cold indifference and hate that creates the unloving GAP and conflict between Spirit (Male) and the Soul (Female).

You may think you know what love is, but it’s mainly based on religious beliefs. You may also think you know what denial is, and yes, the most obvious denials are easy to spot, but there’s more. Once you’ve been activated into one of your issues and choose not to react, but to end your denials and respond to what you’re experiencing, you simultaneously experience self-love and also know what denial is, and what it has been doing to your life. You realize that, like the movie “Pleasantville,” your life has been black and white and shades of gray, but now it’s in living colour and there is no going back. I spontaneously share the moment, I experienced unconditional self-love for the first time, and re-cap on what is needed to heal and empower yourself.

Another aspect of the unknown, is the fear of change, where the mind is caught up in its imprints, programs and beliefs. And because an Empath believes their feelings and emotions are the problem, they are afraid to change, as change is unknown. Denial is comfortable, and so nothing changes. To change, it takes courage and leap of faith to do what you have never done before. Fears come up when you try to change, and denial keeps you frozen in your point-of-view. To change, you have to be willing to lose friends, family and things that you thought are necessary, but in the process, you find and empower yourself.

While you make think your self-hatred and judgments are not a big deal, but I assure you they are, as you’re hating and cutting off parts of your being. As a Spiritual being having a physical experience, you are casting off parts of your emotional Essence. The more you deny, the more you cut off and soon, you’ll remember less and more importantly, you will begin to feel less. Feeling less gives you the illusion that your denials are working, as you aren’t feeling what you used to feel. That’s not the truth, as you’re just too stupid to realize that you‘ve lost big parts of yourself. (Been there, done that). When you’re ignorant, you don’t know what’s really going on, and you’re just going on your mind’s imprints, programs and beliefs that it thinks is the right thing to do.

These denied emotional parts of you just don’t go away, they are still with you. Emotions are energy and when they can’t be expressed, they have no place to go except into your body where they create dis-ease, pain and illness. Journaling is a good way to begin healing, by writing down all the things that you hate about yourself. When you read what you wrote, you begin to see how you’re really talking to yourself.

A new phrase going around is that people are “woke,” that they realize something is wrong with the system and the system needs to change. The flaw in their thinking is that they need to be the ones who change, and not the system, as the system is based in denial. The protesters don’t realize that they are going “cap in hand,” to the controllers, wanting to control them and make them do as they say. Those in a position of power aren’t going to change what they created as their power is based in denial and MONEY. Money gives them the power to buy things, to buy people, politicians, bureaucrats, doctors, media, military, whatever they want. When the love for power is replaced with the power of love, we’ll see a change. The system is going to crumble and fall, and if you have the mindset that it can change, you are going to go with it. 

So how do you create a new reality? We need to be the change, but this is something that we have never done before, as it’s the opposite of the present reality. I have a few things under my belt, but I’m just scratching the tip of the iceberg, and I’ve got a lot more to do.

While we have fears that we recognize, there are also countless fears that are unknown. Fear of the unknown is with every fear that you have. With your fears, your mind has made judgments that it now accepts as truths. Judgments are thought forms attached to the thinker, and as such, they close the mind to new possibilities and experiences. Judgments keep you in a box with no possibility of growth or change. People that have strong “religious” beliefs are a good example of judgments accepted as truth. Dealing with a person that is closed-minded and judgmental is like talking to a stone wall. It took me a long time to find out that what I believed was the truth… wasn’t. Nothing changes until YOU want to change, and the longer you wait to open your mind, the harder things get.

As an empath, if you aren’t sacrificing yourself to try to make others happy by giving them what they want so that you’ll not be attacked, you’re also looking for ways to protect yourself from unloving energy and entities. There are numerous ways of trying to protect oneself from unloving energy and entities, including New AGE, where you visualize yourself surrounded in light or in a bubble, or if you’re into native traditions, you do smudging. If you’re into religion, then praying is the method of choice. The thing with these techniques is that they are temporary quick fix sand don’t deal with the real issue. What is your fear? What is your denial? Empaths pickup on the energy of a person or groups, like people in a Mall, that can quickly make an empath feel drained. Once you heal your issues with dealing with unloving energy and entities by ending your denials and expressing what you feel, those experiences no longer activate and drain you.

Part-truths, when taken as gospel and not questioned, are what gets an empath into trouble. Giving others the benefit of the doubt is in denial of giving yourself the benefit of the doubt and asking direct questions when you feel confused or that something is missing, or that you don’t understand. Identifying part-truths are of value if you also look for what is being denied, and what you’re feeling, as that will add to and expand the part-truth.

Journaling is also a tool for healing and empowering yourself. It allows you to take mini healing steps as writing and moving the emotions that want to move as you are writing, allows you to express privately what you couldn’t do before. Journaling allows your mind to physically see what it did and didn’t do, and how and why you denied your emotions any expression that was not aligned with the mind's judgments and beliefs. While it’s hindsight, it gives you conscious awareness that you didn’t have before.

It’s natural for Empaths to try to help others, but that also leads to sacrificing oneself in the name of being loving and nice. Another reason for being nice is so that you will not be shunned or attacked. Being loving and nice to others, yet at the same time, hating yourself. People that deny expressing their true expression, I refer to as having the Thumper/Bambi Syndrome, where they deny their real expression just to make others feel comfortable. Suppression of real feelings and emotions creates a fear of emotional expression and a door that one needs to walk through and heal what was denied.

Narcissists are attracted to Empaths as they can easily be manipulated and controlled, and Empaths are attracted to Narcissists as they’re attracted to their charisma, or they feel they can help and change them. Empaths fall prey to Narcissists that appear to be nice, kind and loving. Once you are hooked, narcissists use four control tactics; they are, intimidation, interrogation, oh poor me, and aloft. Until the empath is aware of their game plan, the words they are saying and the words they are not saying, they remain the hapless victim.

I share a personal experience dealing with denied anger and rage and the beginning of healing it. It took me another four years to understand and heal it, (my anger and rage) that was because before I could do that, I needed to heal my fear of being attacked and also my fear of expressing myself, verbally and physically. These steps or levels were needed to be completed before I was ready to express and begin to heal and understand my real anger and rage. Kind of like learning to crawl, then stand, before I could walk.

Meditation as practiced by Eastern religions and New Agers is based in denial; denial of any so-called negative feelings and emotions that surface. In the course of my journey, I found that meditation could be used as a tool for healing and self-empowerment, but only if it was done in non-denial. Some of the meditation “journeys”, as I called them, were: visualization, animal guides, clearing your astral attachments. past lives, life guides and higher self, channeling, healing issues and denied emotions, Shamanic and Multi-dimensional journeys.

Mass conscious has been programmed to believe that the so-called “common” people need a ruler that needs to be honoured, respected and obeyed. Those that have been indoctrinated, feel “offended” if others don’t do as they do. So now that the Queen is dead, we are all to suddenly show our respects and offer condolences and sympathy. People aren’t aware, or they choose to deny, that the queen and the British Empire, have blood on their hands. Those loyal to the queen have the belief that everyone should show respect for the dead. One would be a hypocrite if they had no respect for the queen and what she stood for when she were alive, to now suddenly be respectful and in mourning. While some would call this public display of loyalty and mourning as heartbreak, it’s not genuine, but a public display of pomp and ceremony to portray the ruling place of power and control as loving.

Empaths have a morbid fear of expressing their real feelings and emotions as it’s socially unacceptable. It’s a learnt behaviour that follows mass consciousness imprints, programs and beliefs, and a moral code of conduct that is essentially the dictates of organized religion, government, the legal system and the media. Being real and expressing the truth is frowned upon, while lies and denials are tolerated. Small children are about the only ones to speak the truth in the moment. It’s easier to be real(er) with strangers than with ones intimate partner.

I share a personal experience with a Reiki Master in a one-on-one session that involved a traumatic childhood experience, and why and how denied emotional expression and body pain, combined with guilt have a lasting negative effect on the body, and how it can be healed when the denied emotions are expressed and the guilt attachment is released.

Denial is so prevalent in society that most are not even aware what denial is. If you are not expressing your real feelings and emotions in the NOW moment when you feel them, you’re in denial. As an example, we set ourselves up to be in denial with out standard social greeting… “Hi, how are you?” The standard come back is… “Oh, Fine, and you?” To that, they reply, “Oh fine.“ And with that, both are living in denial.

Fake or false emotions are expressed when a person is activated into one of their fears and they go into either a fight, flight or give up mode. These emotions are aligned with the false judgments that the mind has, that thinks this experience is the same as the original experience. Explaining is just that, re-telling an experience with the false emotions that are associated with it. Real emotions are rarely expressed in adults and you are more likely to see them in a child.

Guilt is a presence and is not to be confused with love. Guilt has been in the place of love for eons. All religions are based on guilt. Love and truth does not mind being questioned, but unlovingness, guilt and denial do. Christian beliefs in traditions of Santa Clause and the Easter bunny are lies you tell your children. If you told them the truth, guilt would be on you, telling you that you’re unloving.

Examines the New Age movement as another form of religion in that real feelings and emotions are denied, in order to be positive and feel good. It’s agenda is also similar to the “mental health” establishment, where they aren’t looking for the cause of ones so-called “negative” feelings and emotions, but rather address the symptoms with the use of drugs, or cognitive therapy or whatever they can use to make money.

Hi. My name is John Rieger; but I also go by my pen name, Shenreed.

I’m an empath, so from personal experience, I know the issues Empaths face when so-called “negative” feelings and emotions are expressed. Years ago, when my personal life and small business world collapsed, I became frustrated with my life and traditional dogma, and began my spiritual journey, my search for truth, love, and the meaning of life. 

My metaphysical journey is an eclectic blend of science and spirituality; crossing various topics from New Age, metaphysical, psychology, physical issues, emotions, relationships, self-help, to social issues and more. In my search, I’m both the observer and the subject. I ponder what I see, hear, read, think and feel, and when I think I might have the solution to my issue, I try it to see if it works. After years of trial and error, what I discovered was that my so-called “negative” feelings and emotions were not the cause of my problems and issues, or my flaws or weakness, but my power, and were directly related to my denials of them.

These videos are for Empaths who have a difficult time trying to fit into the “duality” of present day society because they have feelings and emotions that are generally deemed to be “negative.” They have issues in maintaining everyday relationships without feeling they have to sacrifice themselves to make others happy in order to be accepted and not rejected or attacked.

They’re in a constant struggle and feel they’re on a not-so-merry-go-round, and don’t know how to get off. Modern medicine (Mental Health) is of no help to an Empath seeking to understand their feelings and emotions, and who desire to change and empower themselves. Frustrated, they’ve tried drugs (prescription and illegal) cigarettes, alcohol, food, work, exercise, hobbies, pets, sleep, sex, religion, social media, or whatever other form of distraction they think will help; but have found them to be only a temporary quick fix solution.

Empaths have gifts and talents that they deny and are afraid to share, as they too are generally not accepted. By far, the most important attribute of the Will (Soul) of an Empath is the innate ability to feel the presence (the energy) of love and unlovingness. This is a major part of the Empath's dilemma, as they really don’t know how to deal with people that are unloving, but who pretend and claim they are. They often fall prey to narcissistic gaslighting people who have unloving intent and will tell Empaths what and how to feel and think, and to have them deny their truth and real expression in order to control them.

Empaths also have the ability (empathy) to actually feel what another person is feeling, including their emotional, physical and mental state of being, and unknowingly, they also tend to take on another person's energy as their own, and don’t know how to resolve the conflict. Empaths also possess psychic abilities such as clairaudience, clairvoyance, precognition, channeling, telekinesis, telepathy, etc, and having them also makes them feel different and that something is wrong with them.

How to address the dilemma I’ve described has been the focus of my journey, blogs, books, and now my vlogs, that I hope will serve as an inspiration and a self-help tutorial to enable Empaths to begin to understand, heal and empower themselves; to live the life they desire, and not merely survive.

Love, Light and Sound,
