What can alcohol, cocaine, and pot do to a person energetically?

How is the aura of a drunk like flypaper?

So much for my orderly plans for the flow of posts at this blog! Soon we will get to Tenderness Part 3, as well as a couple of guest posts I’m waiting to put in, etc. Quite a long list!

Meanwhile, VALERIE asked a great question today. As long as I’m answering, this deserves its own post. So here we go.

She asked, at Comment 79, in our thread about how to stop smoking marijuana:

“I’m curious about what happens to a person energetically when he or she ingests alcohol.”

Energy effects of alcohol regarding safety

Great question! Let’s consider one energy problem at a time.

Many potheads, or first-time weed smokers, are told, “Marijuana is much safer than alcohol.”

It’s common knowledge that research has shown brain cell damage from alcohol. On the level of deeper perception, there is a great deal of STUFF that goes into a person’s aura as well. CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading of Dr. Drew, a guest post by Jordan

Dr. Drew, Clearly Visible with Energetic Literacy

Previous conversation here about Dr. Drew inspired Blog-Buddy Jordan to do some research with energetic literacy. Curious about what she found?

The photo I supply here is not the one Jordan used, but you can use it, Blog-Buddies, to do your own bits of aura reading, using whatever techniques of energetic literacy you favor. Here is a photo link, as well, in case you want to open up a larger picture for reading him yourself. Or just go to the Dr. Drew website.

Whichever technique you use for energetic literacy, please be sure to use a real technique and do every part.

You could do an aura reading technique or do face reading or do a skilled empath merge. If you are using any of my techniques, I urge you to do the full technique. Don’t pick out your favorite parts and leave the rest, or improvise something where you “Open up to whatever.” Because techniques that I offer are designed to keep you protected as well as helping you to gain accurate information.

Take it away, Jordan.

Aura Reading Dr. Drew

I just read a very small bit of him. I actually did a technique for reading eye glitter. (I think it’s in Read People Deeper).

What did I research? I read, “What kind of intelligence is foremost to Dr. Drew in his public life?” from his right eye.

What I found was actually very good and admirable. It seems he does a great service for celebrities, being in their world, bringing them down to reality. CONTINUE READING

One Life Contract, Six Resources

Blog-Buddies, I love when one of our threads brings up more threads. Unlike picking apart that skinny stuff caught in a sewing needle, these threads within threads can be — as you’ll read soon from DAVE — fascinating. Our ongoing conversation about The Need for Tenderness is bristling with thread, thread about Life Contracts.

Here is how I defined life contracts yesterday:

Before incarnating, you made an agreement about certain things in this lifetime. You chose your parents, the maximum number of life breaths, and ways that you especially wanted to grow during this particular incarnation.

Based on my work with Energy Release Regression Therapy, I am convinced about this contract business. Earth really is a school, an amazing academy for spiritual growth.

If you aim to grow a lot during a lifetime, you’ll purposely front-load your life contract up to the age of 21 (or for some wildly ambitious souls, 28). Oh, the painful things you’ll include purposely!

You’ll pay back huge amounts of karma from past lives. You’ll set up things like cruel parenting, difficult siblings, family problems with addictions or insanity or abuse or poverty, etc.

Later, at Comment #5, Blog-Buddy Dave asked: CONTINUE READING

More Ways to Improve the Tenderness Factor

Tenderness, craved from birth

Let’s continue to explore ways that your life could have more of that tenderness. Because if you have been craving more sweetness in how people to treat you, there might be some more important put-ins that could end that horrible kind of pain where life seems unreasonably and unpredictably harsh.

Please start by reading the first part of our discussion about having more tenderness in life. We’re continuing a thread about the very understandable feeling that you are special and deserve more tenderness in how people treat you.

3. If you’re an empath, add skills

Life for an unskilled empath is harsh. You’re perpetually taking on STUFF from other people’s auras, doing unskilled empath merges. CONTINUE READING

Disappointed by the lack of tenderness in your life?

Adorable Sensitivity

Helping clients with Energy Spirituality, I come across terrible suffering on a regular basis. I do what I can to facilitate help.

Most clients come back for multiple sessions, which is how cumulative progress is made. Sometimes it takes several healing sessions for a person to get this very important Aha!:

Long-term emotional and spiritual healing cannot just involve taking out. It’s tremendously important to also put in more of what will really improve your quality of life.

Certainly that holds true with Energy Spirituality. When I facilitate cutting cords of attachment, the system I use involves putting back in quite a lot of significant things: Knowledge about what used to be in the cord of attachment, discussion of logical consequences for the client’s life on the whole, an energy bandage, homework. (That’s why it’s called “12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment(R)” and not “Have a cozy chat every day with Archangel Michael.”)

Over the powerful healing journey of cumulative growth, sometimes the healing centerpiece for a session will involve putting in something new. For instance, there’s “Social Skills Upgrade with Energetic Literacy.”

What is that? My client, Joe, will relate a troubling incident related to his intention — which is, perhaps, “Having more tenderness in my life.” I’ll pull out an energetic hologram of Joe and the other person in that troubling incident. Then I’ll read relevant chakra databanks about the person who upset Joe. (If you’re interested in finding out what makes people tick, and how they’re deep down different from you, there’s nothing like aura reading with Stage Three Energetic Literacy!)

Then we discuss what Joe did in that situation. What might he have been done differently? Essentially, Joe learns how to interface more effectively with reality.

Yet a lot of life’s put in healing can be done all by yourself. No fancy expert needed, and no fee for services rendered. You might just need to start asking some new questions. For instance….

What can you add so more people will treat you with tenderness?

Adding in — that’s the part so many people forget about when they’re in pain. Today’s post is about ways you might wish to heal disappointment and frustration by adding in something new. Ten somethings new, actually. Here comes our Tenderness Seeker’s List. CONTINUE READING

Empath Empowerment, Sophisticated Quiz Answers

  • What fun, to share my cheer-bringing answers about what it really means to be an empath. My perspective, of course, comes from teaching thousands of people the system of Empath Empowerment(R).

    And the biggest cheerfulness you may feel, underlying every answer in today’s post, is my personal relief. Do I ever know the difference it makes, going from talented-but-untrained to becoming a skilled empath!

    The difference is so far beyond night and day. It’s like comparing those tormented moments at 3:00 a.m., waking up from a nightmare  (as an unskilled empath) to a sprightly moment in the morning, going outside on a beautiful Friday to water a flourishing garden. (Now that’s like being a skilled empath.)

    Puttering around a garden is a typical “normal person” activity for a skilled empath. No need to sob over every parched plant or cringe at the sight of a weed. So with all due joy, freshly doused from my sprinkler, I’m delighted to supply the 10 answers to our Sophisticated Quiz for Empaths. If you haven’t taken that quiz yet, you might want to click there first.

    Does an empath have the right to be happy?

  • Quiz Question 1. You can’t be happy while people around you suffer — not if you’re a skilled empath.
  • FALSE Of course you can be happy while others suffer. It’s tougher, of course. Happiness loves company, just like misery.

    One reason I put this question into our Sophisticated Quiz is a strange martyrish ethos around the very word “empath” for some people. There’s a cluster of related beliefs. Do any of these strike you as familiar?’

    • If you care about someone, you’ll worry about that person.
    • A truly good person brakes for the miserable… and drops everything to fix their cars. (Or solve other problems.) CONTINUE READING

    James Franco’s Digital Appeal, Guest Post by Jordan

    James Franco's Digital Appeal

    Sometimes a really delicious theme will emerge from old threads about deeper perception. Yesterday JORDAN added to our aura reading perspective on the oh-so-famous James Franco. Her main comment has been moved to a guest post from the original Aura Reading of Franco. (This profile with energetic literacy was first posted last February.)

    Since JORDAN first wrote about digital appeal, related comments that came from her and GRACE W. A new and fascinating thread, for sure!

    In Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy, I wrote in some detail about wide perception, the opposite of deeper perception. Wide perception means paying attention to the surface of life, although never feeling shallow to oneself. The thrill of connectivity serves as its own tantalizing form of growth. 

    Take friendship for an illustration about lifestyle choices linked to perception.  Several different friendship styles are available today for you to choose from, including some that count as emerging social trends, never before seen on the planet.

    All these choices are possible for you. Except, being human, you have only so much time to cultivate relationships of any kind. Which proportion of which perceptual styles will you use in your life today? CONTINUE READING

    Being an Empath, a Sophisticated Quiz for Sophisticated Readers

    Welcome, Blog-Buddies of all kinds, empaths and non-empaths, skilled empaths and complete beginners.

    In my continuing adventures teaching Empath Empowerment(R), I encounter so many fascinating beliefs about what it means, being an empath. Here is a brand new quiz to get you thinking in different ways about a familiar topic.

    Answer TRUE or FALSE to the questions below. A follow-up post will give supply my perspective as someone who has helped thousands of people to become skilled empaths.

    Comment below with your answers. For even more fun, explain all or some of them. (That’s where the real juice can be in today’s conversation.)

    1. You can’t be happy while people around you suffer — not if you’re a skilled empath.
    2. Any so-called “neurotic” person is really an empath.
    3. If you’re an empath, you constantly receive psychic messages which should be valued and shared with others. (A more accurate term for your talent than simply “empath” is “psychic empath.”)
    4. Skilled empaths can easily figure out what belongs to them vs. what belongs to other people. CONTINUE READING

    Aura Reading Enlightened Betty Ford

    Betty Ford at 93

    Now that was a lifetime! Before Betty Ford’s incarnation ended at age 93, she had inspired the nation more than most presidents. People joked about the clumsiness of her husband, President Ford (a former athlete who wasn’t really clumsy at all). For generations, people would deate whether or not they thought Gerald Ford made a mistake in pardoning President Nixon. But First Lady Ford was almost universally admired, a true Republican hero who combined conservative values with common sense.

    What did I learn about Betty Ford, just finding photos for today’s commemorative venture into energetic literacy? For starters, I discovered her snazzy full name: Elizabeth Ann Bloomer Warren Ford. I loved reading about her life story, including the fact that she bore and raised four (!!!!) children. Clearly a brave woman. 😉

    If you lived through this historical period in America,  there’s one thing you are sure to know. In 1978, the Ford family staged an intervention and forced Elizabeth Ford to confront her alcoholism and an addiction to painkillers that had been prescribed in the early 1960s for a pinched nerve. She didn’t just overcome the public humiliation, she didn’t merely go into full recovery. Beyond that, as you probably know, she founded the clinic that bears her name. She continued to be active in the cause of recovery. Has any American First Lady ever been more influential… until Hillary Clinton?

    But my favorite amazing detail predated Betty’s marriage to Gerald Ford. Perhaps you knew she was married twice . But did you know this? CONTINUE READING

    Curious how different Blog-Buddies look?

    So how does Rose Rosetree look, eyes open?

    Face reader JORDAN wrote something very head-slappingly superb today at the blog at Comment #46:

    “Sometimes I just want to know what the heck all the Blog-Buddies look like!! ”

    Good point, JORDAN. If I weren’t one of the least visual people on this earth (who isn’t physically blind), I might have thought of this point before! But no repining. Let the photo links begin to flow.

    Please, comment below and add a one-click link. Introduce yourself a bit. I’ll do what I can to open up photos as they come in. I’ll demonstrate with the first comment.

    Well done, Jordan! Face readers and aura readers and skilled empaths here all want to know. CONTINUE READING
