    LOA Teachers, Portraits of Spiritual Addiction, compared with Dominionism

    December 1st, 2011 by Rose Rosetree

    Rick Perry, not believing in LOA but Dominionism

    Such a continuing education in aura reading, energetic literacy, and spiritual addiction! Not to mention Law of Attraction. And, by the end of today’s post, Dominionism.

    Also today’s Part 3 continuation of this thread includes the 1 out of 50 volunteer LOA teachers who was (it seems to me) purposely maniuplating students for personal gain. Although still possessing a spiritual addiction.

    See if you can figure out which one I mean.

    Yes, today’s post shares what I learned by profiling 50 passionate believers on The Law of Attraction/The Secret as taught by Abraham-Hicks or Rhonda Byrne. My how-to book “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy” was based on extensive research. This is just a small part of it. For more details about how this research was done, see the previous post about Law of Attraction Volunteer Teachers (including Comment #3.)

    Toward the end of today’s post I draw some troubling parallels between true believers in Law of Attraction and Dominionism.

    #26. Magnetize Money Profile, Phoenix.

    Root Chakra Databank: Earning Money

    10 inches, very idealistic, not practical, not truthful to herself sometimes about “earth life.”

    #33. Magnetize Money Profile, Atlanta

    Root Chakra Databank: Earning Money

    9 inches, dishonest, a schemer

    Solar Plexus Chakra Databank: Handling Conflict at Work

    Third Eye Chakra Databank: Connection to Spiritual Source

    Out to the sky, enjoys the natural high. (Enjoys any high, probably.)

    #34. Magnetize Money Profile, Seattle

    11  inches, feels very secure, sure that she will always be provided for. Or is struggling to feel that way, anyway.

    Solar Plexus Chakra Databank: Handling Conflict at Work

    6  inches. Conflict makes her feel like a helpless little girl.

    Third Eye Chakra Databank: Connection to Spiritual Source

    Out to the moon. Loves to have her dreams come true; has been looking for a solution like this since she was a little girl.

    #35. Magnetize Money Profile, Washington State

    Root Chakra Databank: Earning Money

    11 inches. May be washed up but “I’ll show them I can do a comeback.”

    Solar Plexus Chakra Databank: Handling Conflict at Work

    5 feet, used to being a manager, having clout.

    Third Eye Chakra Databank: Connection to Spiritual Source

    Out to deep space, has been waiting for a dues ex machine to prove he was right all along and deserved better than life dished out to him.

    So, Blog-Buddies, what are you learning about spiritual addiction?

    Can you get a sense from each of these aura reading profiles that each person is unique? That each person has at least one special reason for following a spiritual path to Enlightenment… or Salvation… a path full of promises that paying less attention to objective life, more attention to perfecting oneself inwardly, will result in more material success

    In reality, getting the spiritual part of a person’s life right doesn’t necessarily mean one will get human problems resolved. Not unless the person has an addiction (including a spiritual addiction) or belongs to a cult.

    Speaking of which, have you heard of this doozy of a cult?

    Hello, Dominionism

    What do Rick Perry and Michele Bachman have in common as presidential candidates? Like Sarah Palin, they are tied to a strong belief system called “Dominionism.”

    According to an article in “The Daily Beast,”:   Dominionism means that Christians have a God-given right to rule all earthly institutions. Originating among some of America’s most radical theocrats, it’s long had an influence on religious-right education and political organizing. But because it seems so outré, getting ordinary people to take it seriously can be difficult.

    Blog-Buddies, I first learned about Dominionism by listening to an interview conducted by Terry Gross on “Fresh Air” with Rachel Tabachnick, who researches the political impact of the religious right. According to Tabachnick:

    “The [Dominionism] apostles teach what’s called ‘strategic level spiritual warfare’ [because they believe that the] reason why there is sin and corruption and poverty on the Earth is because the Earth is controlled by a hierarchy of demons under the authority of Satan. So they teach not just evangelizing souls one by one, as we’re accustomed to hearing about. They teach that they will go into a geographic region or a people group and conduct spiritual-warfare activities in order to remove the demons from the entire population. This is what they’re doing that’s quite fundamentally different than other evangelical groups.” 

    From what I have gathered doing a smallish bit of research into Dominionism, the core idea is that when all the “spiritual” goals have been achieved, such as “converting all homosexuals,” Jesus will come and instantly fix all problems on earth, such as illness, poverty, etc.

    Dominionism has nothing to do with Law of Attraction

    Except, whoa! Each belief system keeps people passionately motivated. And waaaay oversubjective.

    Members of either group believe that, if they only perfect life subjectively (spiritually, theologically, etc.) automatically problems in objective life will become totally fixed.

    Dominionism doesn’t lead to a spiritual addiction — as you can easily extrapolate if you read the chapter about research on Evangelical Christians, also summarized in “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy.”

    But that adamant belief that subjective purity will fix all human problems — it’s worth noticing.

    One reason I teach Energetic Literacy, Blog-Buddies, is so that you can investigate the not-so-pretty aura-level consequences of pretty beliefs.

    Keep thinking! Keep thinking for yourself!

    I went to the sites you give to read more and, WOW, what a frightening movement Dominionism is!

    I know that some Born Agains feel it is their duty to make the rest of the world live by their creeds, but I had no idea it was so organized as a movement. What an eye opener. Looks like we are on a cusp in this country, and we need to all sit up and get involved in the discussion and voting.

    The aura readings are fascinating on many levels. It is all tickling something in me but I can’t exactly formulate what it is about the patterns that is starting to form some questions, not yet.

    I guess I don’t fully understand what that connection with Spirit is, that you are reading here. Is it simply the level of faith we have? Or is it something else?

    I feel the desire to sit, now, and do some more in-depth research on myself and others to answer these questions — and to more completely formulate the questions that I feel but can’t quite articulate yet.

    Obviously, you have triggered a whole cascade of thinking and questioning in me. Thanks for that. It’s always better to bring this stuff to consciousness and deal with it than to go on in ignorance.

    Thanks for this comment, JILL. I have had reservations about adding material to this blog that might be construed politically, as I define my role as “Spiritual teacher and writer, plus emotional and spiritual healer.”

    Not political activist.

    But once I stumbled upon Dominionism as a movement, I thought it would be smart to invite others to make some connections.

    For instance, long ago I saw a viral YouTube video about Sarah Palin being annointed and blessed.

    Only when I heard the Terry Gross interview about Dominionism on “Fresh Air” did I realize that it was a Dominionism-style blessing.

    With my how-to on “Spiritual Cleansing and Protection” very close to having advance copies available, I feel that now is a very important time for people to be able to learn about psychic coercion, plus a depth explanation about what it is affecting their everyday lives; also how to remove it.

    Because, if you know much at all about the form of psychic-level STUFF called “psychic coercion,” it becomes quite obvious that the “spiritual warfare” promulgated by Dominionists constitutes sending psychic coercion on an enormous scale.

    JILL, like all you Blog-Buddies, consider yourself invited to think about Dominionism, to educate yourself about what it is, the scope of it, and its implications for your auric field. The impact can go far beyond merely seeming preposterous or annoying.

    Share any opinion at all about Domionionism at this blog thread! Same with your Aha! moments. If any of you Blog-Buddies have had wonderful benefits from it, for instance, go ahead and educate the rest of us. Of course, the same goes for your big improvements to financial lifestyle courtesy of Law of Attraction.

    JILL, it’s easy to answer your question about the Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source.”

    Not only is it part of the short Magnetize Money Profile. But if you type the name of that chakra databank into the search box at “Deeper Perception Made Practical,” you’ll find it researched in many a post featuring a Skilled Empath Merge and Aura Reading.

    Chakra databanks are, of course, tubes of information within people’s auras.

    Each chakra databank can be researched one at a time.

    Included in every one of a person’s hundreds of chakra databanks is always a distinctive, permanent, gorgeous gift of that person’s soul.

    Researching chakra databanks, you also include the size and quality of any particular chakra databank.

    With me so far, Blog-Buddies?

    Incidentally, if you have a copy of “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy,” you can look up “chakra databanks” in the Index. You’ll find loads of explanation, including illustrations.

    December 2nd, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Continuing this practical explanation about chakra databanks, what causes a chakra databank to be big or small, magnificent or stuck, in one of a zillion possible ways?

    Some chakra databank problems arise due to STUFF, stored-up emotional and/or spiritual deposits, made of energy, stuck at the level of auras… and also a person’s subconscious mind.

    No worries there, right, Blog-Buddies? You may know that STUFF can always, always, always be healed. My books and workshops and sessions involve very specific easy techniques to permanently move out STUFF.

    Besides that, as you may have noticed, there are other healers in the world, really good ones, with a huge range of approaches for healing STUFF.

    The other contributor to problems with STUFF is when somebody makes choices, follows a cult-like belief system, or leads a lifestyle that does not honor that person’s true gifts of the soul.

    With the Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source” — or any other chakra databank — detour-style choices like these can cause any chakra databank to under-function or over-function, causiong about a zillion possible types of mess for human life.

    December 2nd, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Lifestyle related problems, at the level of chakra databanks can always, always, always be changed as well.

    In fact, some of you Blog-Buddies know that one way Rose Rosetree tries to help with this is to offer “Thrill Your Soul” Aura Reading Research.

    A reading is not a healing (of STUFF). However, this type of session can help a person to appreciate the impact of any lifestyle choice, belief system, creative activity, etc. With the research carried out on a juicy, representative range of chakra databanks.

    It’s quite astonishing how this research of chakra databanks can bring clarity about lifestyle choices.

    If I might, I’ll put in a little plug for my annual Thrill Your Soul Workshop, coming up this January. You don’t have to be an expert at Energetic Literacy to learn the super-simple, but powerful, techniques offered for doing your own Thrill Your Soul research. (And I have no books planned to teach these techniques, not for the next five years or so, anyhow. More pressing priorities!)

    For more details about learning to do that kind of research, click below. And among the research items you test, on your own or duinr a personal session… sure, you can find out what the results of Dominionism or The Secret or Abraham-Hicks would be on any of your chakra databanks:

    So, JILL, finishing up the answer to your question, the Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source” is about a person’s connection to God, Highest Power, etc.

    The quality to that chakra databank reveals the clarity, confusion, joy, conflicts, desperation, etc. that is present at the time of the aura reading in person.

    Or what is going on, at that chakra databank, with the person being aura-read from a photograph… at the time of the picture.

    The size of the Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source” is especially interesting if you are curious about consequences of spiritual paths to Enlightenment, prosperity techniques, success techniques, or religious practices.

    This chakra databank offers is a kind of “Rubber meets the road” perspective. Often, when do aura reading research on this Third Eye Chakra Databank, you may be reminded of the lyric in a great old spiritual, “Everyone talkin’ ’bout Heaven ain’t goin’ there.”

    Only the “Connection to Spiritual Source” chakra databank is about how people live in the here and now, rather than the hereafter. ;-)

    People can brag about spiritual connection all they wish, can wear large crosses to proclaim how spiritually righteous they are; religious volunteers like your sister, JILL, can do all the missionary work they please.

    Similarly, anyone with Stage Three Energetic Literacy can research that person’s Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source” to find out what is, actually, happening.

    For instance, I have a dear neighbor, GLADYS, who attends a nearby Baptist Church. GLADYS never tries to convert me, nor is she threatened by what I do for a living — in contrast to some other very “Christian” neighbors, I might add.

    For GLADYS, her Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source” is large and luscious.

    Once I went to GLADYS’ church, for a funeral. I heard plenty of ranting and missionary zeal. I also read my share of Third Eye Chakra Databank on “Connection to Spiritual Source.” Had to do something besides listening after a while, since I got the point after a while. The point wasn’t terribly subtle: Show you love Jesus by seeking to convert every person you meet at every possible opportunity.

    Gee, what do you think I discovered in those Third Eye Chakra Databanks on “Connection to Spiritual Source”? The vast majority were small, angry or fearful or arrogant, plus rigid.

    That church service, actually, was one of my inspirations in writing my novel for empaths, “The Roar of the Huntids,” which has many a character with one form of religious zealotry or another. (This novel is a social satire, not a how-to about “How to wear a 10-pounder cross and enjoy it.”)

    So, JILL and other Blog-Buddies, let me know if this latest attempt at clarification actually helps!

    Thank you, ROSE, for this in-depth answer to my question. I am starting to get it.

    I guess I am still amazed that anyone could be that strongly connected to Source and NOT be able to apply that to their everyday existence. It’s a true compartmentalization of experience and learning, then? Amazing.

    I have read your novel “The Roar of the Huntids” about two years ago and I loved it. I can highly recommend it. A real upper.

    Didn’t start out that way and had me worried until I got way into it and realized what what happening and where it was going. I am really glad I read it – especially as an empath. I have meant several times to mention that at the blog and recommend that book, and just never did. So thank you for the opportunity to do that now.

    JILL, perhaps the question you have is about how having a huge third eye chakra databank can be a bad thing? That still always takes me aback.

    How in some people, having a third eye chakra databank that is out to the moon is a good thing, and for some people a bad thing — because chakra databanks can either under-function or over-function and because chakra databanks need to be balanced overall.

    ROSE, would you comment about whether a huge third eye chakra databank could be a good thing?

    I just read the Post from October about Newt and that explained even more about the difference between size and quality of the Chakra Databanks. Now I’m really getting it.

    Very good post to review at this particular time, too!

    Important question indeed, SUZANNE.

    In general, having ANY chakra databank function thrillions of miles, or having it merely “Out to the sky” isn’t constructive for human quality of life.

    Two exceptions come to mind.

    On exception occurs when doing Aura Reading Research, the kind I call “Thrill Your Soul” research.

    When investigating how different research choices morph a person’s chakra databanks, it is fine if some results are super-big. Especially if all or most of the chakra databanks being researched get really, really big.

    December 3rd, 2011 at 2:44 pm
    13

    And a second exception that I can think of, offhand, SUZANNE, occurs when researching the Magnetize Money Profile for someone who really wishes to become rich and successful.

    If chakra databanks like the following are over-functioning, that’s helpful for going out in the world to make mega-money, plus there will be credible auric modeling to give someone the standing to do those activities.

    Chakra databanks I’m considering are listed here:

    http://www.rose-rosetree.com/blog/2011/10/14/magnetize-money-profile-new-aura-reading-contest/

    It’s helpful to have the following chakra databanks big, or even very big:

    1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7

    If you read the descriptions, this should make sense to you. If not, just add a new comment here!

    JILL, in your Comment 10, do you mean this post about Newt Gingrich?

    About this part of your comment, JILL:

    “I guess I am still amazed that anyone could be that strongly connected to Source and NOT be able to apply that to their everyday existence. It’s a true compartmentalization of experience and learning, then?”

    It IS really counter-culture for New Age, also religion and most cults in the world, that this could be so. But, really, why would it be a healthy way to live, having human chakra databanks half-dead while there are big, over-functioning chakra databanks about connection to Spiritual Source?

    If God had meant us to live that way, maybe human beings would have been built more like Mr. Potato Head.

    ROSE, Comment 16 really made me giggle. A very graphic and good lesson to think of any large databanks that overpowers all the other data banks as making that part of the person physically large in that area and how impractical THAT would be.
