Face reading the royals

Face Reading Wills and Kate

Remember THE WEDDING, and many energetic literacy posts about Prince William and then Kate Middleton? Face reading has been a lively topic here lately. Recently I found a morsel of physiognomy fun.

Paul Coyte interviewed me for a face reading of the royal couple, airing over Capitol Gold radio in England on that wedding day. Gracious as always, Paul allowed me to make a recording of our entire conversation.

Here is a link. It will take a few seconds to download but then will work for you just fine: Paul Coyte interviews Rose Rosetree

Also fun about this little recording is that you get to hear the little chat-up before the official interview. Kind of eavesdropping behind the scenes….

Just in case you ever wondered how wacky those conversations might be, right before a broadcasting pro like Paul Coyte goes on the air. Enjoy, everyone.

Face Reading Bill Hicks, Chosen by Contest Winner Amy

Mega-Mouth Talented Bill Hicks

It’s official. Comedian Bill Hicks is/was really, really funny. And I wouldn’t have known a thing about this amazing, courageous performer except that AMY O’ROURKE gave a great introduction to him when entering our recent contest, Face Reading One of Your Heroes. So thank you, AMY, on behalf of all of us Blog-Buddies who love to laugh. (And also read faces.)

Face Reading Bill Hicks

AMY did an outstanding job in that contest entry. Check out her Comment 3, loaded with juicy details and perfect photo links. YouTube links are provided as well! To read along with me, open up this link. Copy it. Expand it. Unless you expand this picture, you won’t be able to see the details clearly enough to recognize the face reading data, the basis for using the system of Face Reading Secrets(R).

Not that you need to do this in order to simply enjoy and comment on the profile that follows. However, any of you Blog-Buddies who enjoy reading faces will zoom ahead faster at your skill level if you take educational opportunities like the one offered here. Seeing the face reading data clearly is the part that takes practice. So why not open up this Face Reading Bill Hicks link?

Now, on to the face reading, especially the mega-talented mouth of the late Bill Hicks.

Face Reading Data: Trendsetter Lip

How to see it: Bill’s upper lip has well defined triangles. Non-face readers sometimes refer to these as Cupid’s Bow lips. Personally I find this a pretty disturbing name. What, is the little guy doing target practice on the apex of each triangle? CONTINUE READING

You Have So Much More to Your Heart

Rose Rosetree, Heart Chakra Databank Detective

Blog-Buddies, one of my favorite magazines in the world is Pathways, a quarterly publication for the New Age community in the metro Washington D.C. region. And, thanks to the magic of the Internet, now available as a PDF publication as well. Now that the online edition is available, here is a copy of the article that you can read interactively. So feel free to comment below.

Incidentally, the print and PDF versions of my article in the Fall 2011 issue of Pathways Magazine lack that interactive component but they do have illustrations of chakra databanks excerpted from my how-to, “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy.” The article below was edited accordingly.

Secrets of Energetic Literacy

You Have So Much More To Your Heart©

By Rose Rosetree

If you’re a typical Pathways reader, you’re always thinking, “How can I make my life better?” Well, take a few moments with me right now to learn about something great about you. Maybe there could be a little healing project available too, but mostly you’ll find cause for rejoicing.

Wait until you learn about the 50 fabulous chakra databanks tucked inside your heart.

Okay, what do I mean by “tucked inside”? Or by “chakra databanks”?

All around you, in every direction, you have an energy field, full of information. That’s your aura.

Tucked neatly within that, ta da! You have major chakras and sub-chakras. They’re tucked within you as super-concentrated sources of information.

So, you knew all about that? Great. Well how long have you also known that every one of your major chakras contains 50 databanks of information?

Tubular, man!

Awesome, tubular? Sure you are. These old bits of California slang may be outdated, but since birth – and lasting for your entire foreseeable future — your aura contains hundreds of these tube-like structures.

Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy, outrageous interview

Energetic Literacy to Help You Magnetize Money

Blog-Buddies, here is the audiofile from an interview I did with Tracy Tobler about my how-to, “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy.” This is the most in-depth interview done on this topic so far with anyone. Charming Tracy asked some great questions.

We discussed:

  • Myths and realities
  • How Law of Attraction doesn’t work as expected
  • How LOA does respond to auric modeling

And loads of controversial, practical ideas for making more money, bridging spiritual life and reality. Okay, actually the interview was on the outrageous side. Tracy emailed me that many folks in her chat room became angry. Will you? CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton as a Celeb

What happens to Dolly Parton’s aura when she sings? In her autobiography, Dolly describes herself as a child holding up a pretend microphone so she could sing for her audience. No photos of that are available, to my knowledge, but I have found some fine photographs for doing aura reading research.

Sure, we can compare some chakra databanks when Dolly Parton is simply playing “celeb” versus how those same chakra databanks perform when she plays “performer.” I’ll disclose that I am a HUGE fan of this singer and sometimes songwriter. If you are, too, perhaps you will have some favorite YouTubes about Dolly that you can note in the COMMENTS section from today’s post. CONTINUE READING

Arlene, the Groovy Psychiatrist, on Narcissists and More

Yes, Blog-Buddies, here is the rest of my interview about the differences and similarities between Energy Spirituality and traditional methods of therapy, including psychiatry. Many thanks to Arlene, the Groovy Psychiatrist, and to the Blog-Buddy who volunteered to transcribe our interview.

For other posts in this series see:

Are all narcissists the same?

Rose:  Greetings, Arlene! This is Rose Rosetree, and I want your perspective as a groovy psychiatrist about some very varied questions about the intersection of healing when the approach is psychiatry, when the approach is Energy Spirituality, or other mind-body-spirit approaches. CONTINUE READING

Arlene the Groovy Psychologist, Interview Continued

Blog-Buddies, here is our chance to complete an interview about Energy Spirituality, psychological healing, cutting cords of attachment, and other topics related to deeper perception. Arlene, the Groovy Psychiatrist, has superb knowledge about all that I teach. She is also, of course, a psychiatrist. (Although “Arlene” is not her real name… and Arlene as a name would never, ever do well in Soul Thrill Name Realignment Research for this particular person, I am quite sure. ;-))

Thanks to the Blog-Buddy who volunteered to transcribe this interview! You can read the earlier segment of our Interview about Psychiatry and Energy Spirituality here. And the original set of questions can be found in an earlier contest about psychological healing and spiritual healing.

Rose: Welcome back, Arlene the Groovy Psychiatrist. And this is Rose Rosetree as well. We’re going to continue our conversation generated by a contest where people at my blog, Deeper Perception Made Practical, sent their heartfelt questions to you, as someone who knows both about psychiatry and also knows an awful lot about Energy Spirituality. Anything you want to say as we sail into Part Two of this conversation?

Arlene:  I was thinking about the last question because we both know an Enlightened psychiatrist who is involved in addiction work, and so if you were struggling with that, to find someone like her would be a really good thing on the path of recovery because she would probably help you with a lot of other things in your life besides the addiction alone.

Rose: And addiction is seldom really just an addiction, right?

The nature of addiction

Arlene: I truly believe that. In my observation, addiction is usually just one part of a many-pronged issue. And so I think that a lot of other issues get addressed when the addiction itself comes to attention.

Because it’s almost like its representing, or standing in as sort of a symbol for, a lot of other things that are usually also going wrong. So I think that an enlightened psychiatrist can really help with not just the addiction itself, but all the things that are connected with it.

Rose: Yes, that makes so much sense. Of course, one thing that a person can do in seeking out a psychiatrist or other practitioner with a high state of consciousness is to get a photograph of that person, often available these days on the Internet, Facebook, Google images or wherever, and then do an in-depth aura reading of that person.

If it looks promising, maybe even do a skilled empath merge, or have someone do research for you (someone like me for instance). I’ve helped people learn about what the people are like: Their integrity, how they handle power, etc. It can be quite interesting. So there are ways that deeper perception can be a substitute for the trial-and-error approach.

You know, the other thing you were just saying about addictions — I learn things all the time about myself and people.

 I’d say one of the main themes that I’ve been learning in this year 2011, is the extent to which so many people either have an addiction, whether it’s to marijuana or cigarettes or over-eating or sex, which is no euphemistically called a “love addiction,” or belong to cults. Also, so many people are just walking around half asleep.

I wonder if you have noticed something similar, as people wake up more — and that would include me waking up more, and maybe your waking up more. It’s very interesting how there’s more free will, there’s more clarity of perception, and there’s more of a natural high.

Changes related to 2012?

Arlene: I have noticed that. It’s sort of interesting to see, you know, you’ve had discussions on your blog and I’m sure the bloggers are aware, you know there’s a lot of discussion about the Mayan calendar, and then I think not that long ago there was this discussion around the end of the world, and not the apocalypse, but something around the souls leaving the earth.

And I think that these kinds of discussions create a lot of different effects on people. Some people, like the bloggers, probably experience that they’re becoming more and more awake, and it feels really good for them. But others may experience it as, it may agitate them or make them anxious. And certainly conversations about the end of the world tend to make people feel anxious and worried.

Rose: That’s probably a good thing!! (Laughter)

Arlene: And maybe react by trying to suppress their anxiety through addiction, through obsessive-compulsive behavior, through denial, or repression, or any number of ways that we all try to deal with difficulties in our lives; we all react in different ways.

So that’s what I see more of, many more different ways of people reacting to the circumstances around them. Certainly right now politically also, even if someone were not spiritually awake at all, it would be hard not to notice that politically, in America right now, these are some interesting times, and we’re going through a lot.

Energetic subroutines

Rose: Well now, speaking of coping with interesting times and difficulties, I’m going to scamper over to Comment #7, which happens to be from me. And, here the heart of my comment goes like this:

You are familiar with the term “energetic subroutine,” which is about ways that a person can unintentionally use one part of an aura to do the work of another part of an aura.

I give the example in my comment of a chakra databank at the Third Eye Chakra about seeking psychic guidance. This chakra databank winds up doing the work of a part of an aura like the Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Self-Awareness. I wanted to know if there’s an equivalent concept in psychiatry.

Just to restate it one more time, because not all of you who are listening to this part of our conversation about psychiatry and energy spirituality are familiar, perhaps, with the term “energetic subroutine.” Let’s talk about Gladys or Joe. Say that Gladys has been very earnestly seeking psychic guidance because she’s been told that this is the root to spirituality, and certainly this is very big in new age circles, in psychic teachings, in mediumship teachings, in channeling teachings, the idea that psychic guidance is the highest, bestest way of making choices in life and getting information.

I’ve had many clients like Gladys who have parts of her aura that are really not working, like the ability to have her own emotions, or make contact with objective reality. That’s what I mean by an energetic subroutine.

It’s almost like outsourcing to India, when you don’t live in India. So, is there an equivalent concept in psychiatry, and if so, how is a problem like that treated?

Arlene: So in psychiatry, they would probably call that a defense mechanism. For example, a defense mechanism would be intellectualizing a problem, like what you were talking about with an energetic subroutine of not experiencing your own emotions.

So let’s say a client comes in and clearly he is upset about a breakup. But rather than expressing his emotions about it, he intellectualizes it. That would be a defense mechanism.

One way to treat it would be through therapy, pointing it out to the person: “Do you notice that, in difficult situations, you try not to experience your emotions and instead you intellectualize them?” I might try to help the person reach some insight about that.

And then he might say “Yes, I realize this is a problem for me, like when I lost my job, rather than feeling bad about it I intellectualized it.” Then I could help him try to change those patterns of behavior.

So that’s how psychiatrists or psychologists would typically approach that. There are other defense mechanisms too, but that would just be one example.

Detachment and boundaries in the therapeutic process

Rose: That’s such a great example. Thank you. And now, continuing on, another question here. I must admit, I put a bunch of questions in here. So here’s another one from me.

When I think of the healer’s role in psychiatry, I think of someone who is very vigilant to not allow personal feelings, thoughts, or reactions show to a client. I think of the psychiatrist who has a patient lie on a couch, the kind of practitioner my mother went to, actually, back in the 1950s, some four days a week. Do contemporary psychiatrists have a similar obligation to blank out their personas when dealing with patients?

Arlene: I laughed when I read this question. So what you’re describing is analysis, or psychoanalysis, which was in its heyday in the first half of the 1900’s, probably up until the 1950’s, maybe the 1960’s, and there have been good articles about it recently in the past year in the “New Yorker” magazine, the history of analysis. I would say that psychiatrists, in this day and age, like in 2011, don’t tend to blank out their emotions as much as when Freud was alive, that was the model that he presented. But what we are expected to do is to maintain neutrality, or to be neutral.

So, we may have a client that we really don’t like, but we still have to act in that client’s best interest, and so we are expected not to show that we don’t like that person. Similarly, we may have someone we really like, or are even attracted to, and we would definitely also be expected to maintain neutrality in that situation.

One thing that I find so fascinating about psychiatry is because it has such an interesting history.

 People have different views of psychiatry depending on if their view of psychiatry is a snapshot from 1920, or from 1960, or from 2000, or from 2011.

And people’s experience of the field is so different, and has been different, depending on how they’ve interfaced with the various people in field or the various systems in the field. I think that’s why people have so many conflicting views of the field.

Rose: Well that’s fascinating. You know, it is intriguing to me to hear you talk about the responsibility of a psychiatrist to be neutral when working with patients or clients that are liked or not liked. I know one of the luxuries I have in my work with clients is that if I have a client I don’t feel I’m connecting with well, or someone I really don’t feel I can help, I get to terminate the session. I often would do it in the very first session, ‘cause I can tell pretty fast. Or sometimes I will recommend after a few sessions that a client not work with me any longer, because I don’t feel as though I’m really helping that client, and I don’t want to just put in the time.

As somebody who’s working now, you think when you’re finished with your residency, you would afford yourself such a luxury, or is there a different kind of ethical, or just some other, criterion that’s used?

Arlene: That’s a really interesting question. So, when a psychiatrist enters into private practice, he or she can set up their private practice anyway they would like, and so usually at the first appointment you set out the guidelines for you practice.

A practical one might be, if you don’t call and cancel your appointment 48 hours in advance, you’ll be charged the full amount for the session. As a trainee, I don’t have the luxury of saying to someone in the middle of an intake appointment “I don’t think I can help you, so I’m going to stop the interview.”

But we do have guidelines at the clinic, guidelines I did not create. If a patient misses a certain number of sessions, they get a letter, and if they don’t respond to that letter, usually within a month is the standard practice, then their chart will be closed.

Patients can be fired. For example, if a patient were to show up and physically threaten any physician in the clinic, that would be automatic grounds for dismissal from the clinic.

So there are guidelines like that. But if you’re a solo private practitioner or if you’re in a group, the group can determine its guidelines and policies and what will be grounds for not continuing with someone or you can put in your own guidelines, like if I don’t believe I can help you, I reserve the right to end the interview at any point. Any practitioner can set that as their criterion. But if you’re in a group practice it might be harder, but usually the group all agrees to the same guidelines; if you’re a solo practitioner you can create any guidelines you want for your own practice.

Rose: As part of the guidelines you work with at this time, how long do you continue therapy with a patient, provided that that patient can keep coming to you? Is it just that the patients decides, or do you sometimes have goals and then say, “It’s done now. You’re cooked.”

Arlene: Usually it’s a joint discussion. Usually at the start of therapy, the patient has some goals, and so usually you try to work to meet those goals. There are forms of therapy that are time-limited, that are specifically time-limited and are designed to be that way, so they will end at 20 sessions, or 8 sessions, or 15 sessions, so that no matter what happens, session number 15 comes and the therapy is ended, it was designed to end that way.

Analysis typically is the most intensive form of therapy, and people can be in analysis for years, and it tends to be a little bit more open-ended, but I definitely think that therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client, at least in 2011 as I understand it. I think it may have been less collaborative in the past, you know where maybe the therapist had more power or more decision-making power, but usually it’s a joint process.

Rose: Well thank you. Now, here’s a related question, but I’m going to save it for Part 3. So is there anything you want to say to finish wrapping up Part 2 of our conversation before we go jaunting on to Part 3?

Arlene: No, it’s an interesting set of questions.

Rose: Thank you. It’s sure an interesting set of answers! Back soon.

Part 3 of Interview: Arlene, The Groovy Psychiatrist and Rose Rosetree, Founder of Energy Spirituality

Rose: It is a continued conversation with Arlene, the groovy psychiatrist (as you’re known here), and Rose Rosetree, the representative of Energy Spirituality. As we continue to talk about the relationship between these fields and how people grow and heal, I thought it would be good to go over to Comment #22 from JANE. She said:

Do you think more people are turning to spiritual healers in this day and age than ever before, in conjunction with the help they’re getting from their psychiatrist? Are a lot of patients you meet open to trying non-traditional methods of healing?

Arlene: I don’t know if more people are turning to spiritual healers than before, because there have always been people who have turned towards the pastors or ministers or people at church, so I don’t know of any studies where there would be data about that. But I do think there are people who are definitely using both modalities, spiritual healing and psychological healing, and utilizing psychiatrists as well.

Mind-body-spirit healing

Rose: Well, do you think, and this is continuing on with Jane’s question here, is it likely this demand from consumers will put pressure on doctors to recognize mind-body-spirit forms of healing as legitimate, and to entertain it as options in healing that work for many people?

Arlene: I remember reading that question and not knowing how to answer it, in part because I’m not sure that I know the answer to that question. It’s usually the clients who determine what sort of healer they would like to utilize, and not the practitioner who directs which healers the patient is interested in calling upon.

Some clients will talk about other healers they’ve used in the past or healers they’re consulting concurrently, but we don’t interfere with that process. So if they want to utilize five different healers at the same time, I usually won’t know about it.

Or if I do, there’s not much I would do about it. So I don’t know if it would have any effect on my recognition of the fact that they’re using other modalities or not, because it might not affect what’s happening between me and that person.

Rose: So you wouldn’t suggest that somebody talk to you or let you know while you’re in an ongoing relationship? The reason that I’m asking is that one of the guidelines I have with new clients is that I ask some questions at the beginning, and one them is if the person is in therapy.

If the person is in therapy, doing any kind of work with a mental health professional, I ask that client to get a kind of permission or consent from that therapist. Because, to me, it’s a very important primary helping relationship long-term, and I want to make sure that the practitioner doesn’t feel that there’s a conflict.

Arlene: Oh, I see. We do ask if the patient is seeing a counselor or therapist. And part of the reason why we ask that is that if we have to coordinate care, it’s helpful for us to know who that person is. We would also, generally, need a medical release to be able to communicate with that person if we would like to coordinate care.

But usually, we don’t ask, “Are you also consulting an acupuncturist? Are you also consulting your pastor? Are you also consulting a hypnotist?” Those questions are not a standard part of the interview process, generally. Some practitioners may ask about it, but we don’t at our clinic. I do ask them who their primary care provider is, again to coordinate care, but I don’t usually ask, “Are you also seeking other modalities of healing besides the use of psychiatry?”

Rose: Well, that makes sense because the setting in which you’re working as a psychiatry resident is, as you say, a clinic. And so am I correct that means more short-term relationships with your clients, rather than long-term relationships with them?

Arlene: Sometimes we have long-term relationships with them, but it tends to be a much more biomedical approach because we’re attached to an academic medical center. We do offer counseling services as well, but usually people won’t access our clinic for only counseling and not any medication management. It can happen, but I have yet to see it happen.

Does it help to analyze experiences outside of therapy?

Rose: Here comes a question related to Gladys, who sees a psychiatrist four days a week. Something interesting was discussed in our recent session. This is a Rose question that got on to this.

Gladys has a very ingrained habit after all her years of therapy, where she stops many times in the course of a day and thinks about an incident that just happened. Gladys then tries to analyze what in the past is related, and might be a pattern. Is this really a productive thing to do outside of therapy? With my perspective from Energy Spirituality, I would say “No.” Whereas Gladys had assumed this was helping her to progress. I’m wondering about your view on that.

Arlene: I personally don’t think it’s productive, but I can’t speak for all psychiatrists, I can only speak for my only personal experience. I don’t think it’s very productive to do that.

Rose: Why?

Arlene: For one thing, I think, you know, part of life is actually living it.

Rose: You’re kidding!

Arlene: Even psychiatrists, we participate in the grand scheme of life like everyone else. I think that to constantly sort of stop the process of experiencing life and living it by analyzing it, or attempting to analyze it, is not helpful.

I think that there are, I think you’ve talked about this on your blog, there are times where it’s good to stop and integrate experiences,. But there are times to do that, and I think that constantly trying to stop and integrate experiences multiple times throughout the day, it’s probably not very helpful.

It would be more helpful to live, and then save up some of those times, and then reflect on it later.

Rose: In praise of living!

Changing Your Life Contract, a guest post by Robert Schwartz

Here’s a treat related to our recent discussions about life contracts and personal path to Enlightenment. Robert Schwartz is a friend of mine who has specialized in researching these contracts.

His unusual work began in a personal session with a medium in 2003. Robert was astonished to speak with nonphysical beings who knew everything about him – not just what he had done in life, but also what he had thought and felt. They told him that he had planned many of his most difficult experiences before he was born. Realizing that a knowledge of pre-birth planning would bring great healing to people and allow them to understand the deeper purpose of their life challenges, Robert Schwartz devoted the next three years to studying the pre-birth plans of dozens of individuals.

Then he went on to write a book that I have recommended previously at this blog: “Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born.”

 A free PDF with a large sample of the book is available on Robert Schwartz’s official website. The book may be ordered on that website, too, as well as at silly Amazon.com.

So often, when something “bad” happens to us, it appears to be purposeless suffering. But what if our most difficult experiences are actually rich with hidden purpose – purpose that we ourselves planned before we were born? Could it be that we choose our life’s circumstances, relationships, and events?

In my research for my book Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, I found that the answer to this question is a definite yes. Working with four of the most gifted mediums and channels in the country, including one who is able both to see and to hear our pre-birth planning sessions, I’ve examined the pre-birth plans of dozens of people.

These people planned such challenges as physical illness, having handicapped children, deafness, blindness, drug addiction, alcoholism, losing a loved one, and severe accidents. Courageously, they planned these challenges for purposes of spiritual growth.

Of the many people with whom I’ve spoken, there was only one who did not plan his challenge before birth. Yet, like everyone else, he did choose it.

In Bob’s case, he made his choice shortly after birth, when an accident occurred in the hospital. CONTINUE READING

The Horrors of “Soulmates.” A guest post from Amanda

“Infatuation” is defined as “a foolish or extravagant passion” and derived from the same word as “fatuous.” To put it in plain English, it means stupid.

Once upon a time, when my life wasn’t going too well, I developed the conviction that I had a soulmate. I read up all sorts of things about twin flames and soul connections on websites full of purple zoomy lights and karmic information. And I just “knew” that somewhere out there was my One.nd when we met he would complete me.

Heart in hand, I launched on The Search. CONTINUE READING

My Turning Point, Clearly Signed. A guest post by Scarlett Jade

I have something to say that ties into a couple of themes  that could be summarized as “Pain” and being “High.” For context, I am a former stoner of 20 years. For well over a year, I haven’t gotten high once — unless you count using techniques of energetic literacy for a natural high.

There is something to be said for the contrast of experience being high or not.

I mistakenly started out smoking believing that it was an honorable spiritual path. I also felt that it intensified experiences, and that quality in itself was a positive thing all around.

A subtext of feeling like I was taking something away from myself if I wasn’t high for things like being in the outdoors or being with people I loved –- because it would just shoot me to a place of revelry.

But there was this aspect that made me question the whole stoner lifestyle, CONTINUE READING
