Skilled Empath Merge with Barbara Barry, Interior Designer

Barbara Barry, delightful candidate for Skilled Empath Merge

How could I pass up the opportunity to read the interior of this interior designer? GRACE W. did such a beautiful job when she requested this research with energetic literacy.

Having won a prize in our most recent contest about true tales of cutting cords of attachment, Blog-Buddy GRACE didn’t only supply photo links but explained her choice in the italicized words that follow. (Some of the super pictures that GRACE supplied are sprinkled in, showing samples of Barbara Barry’s design work.)

Energetic literacy to speed our path toward Enlightenment

One aspect I’ve enjoyed about our Enlightenment Life List people is not only the new understanding of Enlightenment that I’ve developed, but seeing that there are Enlightened folks in the arts, business, philanthropy and even the soon-to-be-revealed politician.

I particularly enjoy seeing how these people go about sharing their talents in the world and seeing the spiritual connection that they have and that they don’t, to my knowledge, speak about directly in public.

I’ve realized that one reason of many that I was so delighted by the documentary I mentioned about Bill Cunningham in the Enlightenment thread is that he has carved out such a fascinating, joyful, productive,and creative life while maintaining a sense of integrity. In places where that can be particularly challenging (as he states in the film) – in New York, and I’d add, in the world of fashion.

I was inspired to “meet” someone who keeps the focus on his passion for seeking beauty, for celebrating it and for not being swept up in all the meanness and nonsense that are part of that world. CONTINUE READING

A lesson from my garden

Summer would be hot in Sterling, Virginia even without the global warming. This morning I finally heeded cries from my garden, untangled the hose, and did a bit of watering.

My garden is in a funny phase right now, actually. And not just because of the precocious heat, normally what I would expect here in late August.

Garden plots can be found on all four sides of the modest home I share with my family. On every side, the garden’s vitality persists despite a kind of privileged neglect. Loved by someone who is quite ignorant of how to nurture living plants. CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading Tennis Great RAFA, a Guest Post from Jordan

Rafa, ready for tennis and aura reading

I am a big tennis fan, and I loved when Rose did a reading of Roger Federer back in 2008.  But Roger has never been my absolute favorite player to watch  – it was always RAFA. Rafael Nadal is so strong and sure on the court, and so, so cute.

I can’t help it, I even love how he compulsively picks his shorts out of his butt. (Tennis fans know that he does the wedgie pick almost compulsively, followed by pushing his hair behind each of his ears.)

Rafa has been my favorite tennis player for a long time, so I was a little bit hesitant to read his aura. What if I found something bad? I might have to find someone else to root for! I didn’t want Rafa ruined.  BUT, lucky lucky, his aura has only made me fall more in love with him. CONTINUE READING

How could God let this happen to me?

Life is either bliss or lessons, sweet key lime pie or puckery lemons. At the time, we may not even consciously know what those lessons are.

That’s when we really feel clobbered. One of the deepest expressions of pain at such times is the question, “How could God let this happen to me?”

An example is the problem described by MYRNA at Comment 280 in our Q&A thread about cords of attachment:

“I have had a very strong affinity for a man. Felt that hankering, borderline-obsession with thinking he is ‘The One.’”

So many of us have been there, just like MYRNA. The craving feels wrong, seems weird, isn’t what we would consciously choose to “work on.” Yet we can’t stop it. Gotta keep thinking about “Lover Boy”…. gaaaaack!

The whole situation can seem so unfair, even like a punishment. What can we do? CONTINUE READING

“Fat” isn’t necessarily what you think

Summertime, summertime! The fun season of sodas and pretzels and beer. Also Energy Release Regression Therapy. Photo credit for today’s post goes to Superior

For some of my clients, anyway, summer vacation is when they make an unusual kind of pilgrimage to Sterling, Virginia. Where my sessions of past-life therapy, unlike all other types of session I offer, must be done in person. Gladys is visiting now, back for her third series of regressions.

This brave explorer is a long-term client who lives quite a distance away. Over the years, Gladys has done many phone sessions of Aura Healing and Transformation. For certain kinds of depth healing, however, Gladys appreciates this other facet of STUFF removal. At least she hasn’t had to fly across an ocean to get here!

For certain kinds of STUFF, like deposits from smoking marijuana or deep patterns of fear, it’s really useful to remove frozen blocks of energy from past traumas. One session out of this latest bunch contained a memory set that was so surprising, so poignant, I asked her permission to share the highlights with you. Skip ahead to the next heading of this article, unless you want to read a little background first.

Typically, for this type of session, many frozen blocks of energy are released from experiences in a client’s present life. But sometimes the subconscious mind and Higher Self wake up a different kind of experience, supporting the client’s intention for a healing around a particular theme. What name shall I give this former incarnation of Gladys? Let’s go for a big, interesting name — Veronica.

Read Veronica’s story, if you dare. Because maybe, just maybe, some of you Blog-Buddies know a person who has worried about being fat. CONTINUE READING

Straight or Gay? What can energetic literacy tell you about sexual orientation?

Sure, you’re curious. Who wouldn’t be? Sex is one of life’s great mysteries. For the sake of your love life alone, wouldn’t it be useful to use energetic literacy to do some sexual detective work?

Especially wouldn’t it be highly useful to know for sure about any person’s sexual orientation?

Straight or gay? Hetero or lesbian? Bisexual? Transgendered? (A.k.a. LGBT)

Clients certainly ask me about this. So the purpose of this article is to share what I have learned about doing this kind of sexual detective work.

Today’s post was inspired by the contest winner’s request for me to do aura reading on Ellen deGeneres, a comedian specializing in gentle humor, a popular talk show host, adorable star of the beloved movie “Finding Nemo,” and — whatever else she achieves in her life — mostly famous as a lesbian who dared to come out on national network TV.

Why Amazon Marketplace “new” books are a bad bargain

Okay, I’ll admit it. I am in an abusive relationship.

This love/hate/hurt relationship is with As a humble independent publisher, I need exposure at the world’s largest bookstore. Yet there are many troubling things about relationships that publishers like me have with Amazon. Some of this leaked out through a sequence of comments last night. PRIMMIE suggested I turn this into a post of its own. Good idea. Here comes an adaptation of what was discussed about Amazon. And them I’m going to move relevant comments to the comments section here.

If you ever buy books from Amazon, now read this. Please forward a link to any friends who buy books there. There’s something going on that you may not know about.

And if you know any publisher who sells books at Amazon, please forward a link as well. They could be losing money and not know it. If they’re willing to sacrifice a little time to deal with vexing formalities, they can (probably) stop being cheated in this way from now on. CONTINUE READING

Consumer alert about cutting cords of attachment

Advanced practitioners learning more about cutting cords of attachment

What if you’re looking online for a healing practitioner? Say that you find someone who says “I studied with Rose Rosetree” or “I use Rose Rosetree’s trademarked method, 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment(R).”

What does that mean exactly?

Take it from me. It doesn’t mean that the person has done depth study with me. That person is not a graduate of my Mentoring Program in Energy Spirituality, not if you’re reading anything on the Internet as of today’s date or earlier. That would be June 14, 2011.

Now I’m delighted when people use my method for cutting cords of attachment. I’m grateful for the integrity when this is attributed — when my book is mentioned, for instance.  It’s only fair, really, to acknowledge the source of your work.

And a healer gets extra points with me by referring people who are curious to the Official Rose Rosetree Website, rather than (Where the integrity factor is so low, they even sell alleged “New” copies of books like mine, discounted sales that bring zero money to the publisher or author. )

Here are some words of clarification for you as a consumer. CONTINUE READING

Aura reading of Ellen DeGeneres coming out as a lesbian

Aura Reading Ellen DeGeneres

With our recent contest about cutting cords of attachment, SUZANNE was one of the winners. She requested a reading of Ellen DeGeneres, writing this:

I would be curious to see you read her aura right after she came out on “Ellen” in 1997, and then read a fairly recent picture. What was her aura like at that time? What are some of her gifts of soul? How has fame and the passing of time changed her?

Ellen’s coming out as a lesbian on national TV was so hugely inspiring to me, as it was for many lesbians. I am one of the many women who was encouraged to come out after watching that episode. I watched her on television and thought, “She is radiant.”

Watching her on the screen, I realized suddenly, “I can be a lesbian and a good person: There is no conflict between spirituality and sexual orientation.”

I am so delighted to read Ellen again. Years ago I did 33 feature stories for the Chicago Sun-Times, lengthy interviews for delightful reporter Paige Weiser. One of my favorites was an article from 2006, a couple’s aura reading of Ellen with her (now) married partner Portia di Rossi, an inspiring love match. CONTINUE READING

What is Virtual Reincarnation?

Virtual Reincarnation — butterfly shifts for a human?

Some of you have already experienced Virtual Reincarnation.

Others have experienced it but, lacking the concept, never gave yourself credit.

Still others may be tempted to try really hard when you read today’s post, trying to squoosh or mash or otherwise wrangle a way to force your past experiences into this concept.

No need. Virtual Reincarnation is not the purpose of life. Nor is this some new kind of exclusive club to which all New Agers need aspire. Virtual Reincarnation is merely something that happens sometimes, as part of a person’s spiritual evolution. Plenty of other things can happen that are just as good.

What is Virtual Reincarnation?

Within this same incarnation, you can change and grow to such an extent that you become like a different person having that same lifetime.

Usually a virtual reincarnation is preceded by a long dark night of the soul. By the time you recover, so many things are different. You still feel like yourself, deep down. Yet otherwise you can be so different.

To understand more of the nuances, let’s make some comparisons.

Survival struggle compared to Virtual Reincarnation

Life on earth often includes big struggles, emotionally or physically or materially or socially. (As if you needed me to tell you that!)

But did you ever think about the very different types of struggle that can happen in life? One short list has nothing to do with Virtual Reincarnation. This list of survival struggle includes:

  • Resisting one’s growth, as in putting off a divorce. Or delaying the hunt for a better job when you know that soon you’ll be fired.
  • Delays and difficulties and detours while you try to do something really hard, like give up an addiction to pot/marijuana/weed; to painkillers or cocaine; or to alcohol/a.k.a. cute little drinks with umbrellas/manly six packs taken as a kind of daily vitamin, etc. CONTINUE READING
