Funny videos for shallow perception

This might set you laughing, too.
This might set you laughing, too.

Blog-Buddies, sometimes the timing of life is so delectable.

Just finished my last session of the day, with a client (GLADYS) who needed to shallow up.

Sure, we did cord-cutting as part of her healing session. But the main direction of her healing was the put-in part. GLADYS is learning how objective reality is different from the subjective kind, and to “Shallow up,” as needed.

Yes, sometimes personal development (and even one’s path to Enlightenment) demand no less than “shallow perception.”

Soon as GLADYS left, I checked my emails and found a friend’s link to one of the funniest YouTubes I’ve ever seen.

This one is an eye-watering, roar-inducing spoof of homeopathy. (I love homeopathy, and thus have earned the right to laugh at it.)

Got laughs? Got YouTubes?

Blog-Buddies, you are so invited to comment with links. Share the shallow, the giggle.

Sometimes I forget just how funny life is here at Earth School. With all of today’s wild political events after The Shift, not to mention all the other personal things that can happen after The Shift, plus other silly things that aren’t related to The Shift but familiar patterns of life in one’s very own neighborhood.

Let’s go laugh at some YouTube videos.

Face Reading Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City

Michael Bloomberg, ready for his face reading
Michael Bloomberg, ready for his face reading

Who isn’t fascinated by the New York Mayor? If you follow the news, you know that Mayor Bloomberg doesn’t just rest on his big pile of money, as one of the richest men in the world. This face reading is going to be fun.

Blog-Buddy JILL ERIN won the #1 Face Reading at our recent Mystery Face Reading Contest for several reasons. Learn more about them toward the end of today’s post. (Pssst. This inside perspective could help YOU win future contests at this personal development blog using Deeper Perception.)

Now, quoting JILL ERIN, I’ll highlight in red all the practical points that I aim to address today with the face reading of Mayor Bloomberg:

“I would respectfully request the reading of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s face in this contest. Mayor Bloomberg is in the news a lot, lately, for the moving of his agenda items like gun control and disallowing the sale of large sodas (even, recently, disallowing the ordering of a pitcher of a drink at a restaurant) in New York City.

“He is strongly opinionated, and, seems to me, thinks he knows what is best for everyone. I am interested in where that kind of need for control and consolidation of power shows up on a face. Actually, I would be interested in anything that shows up on his face.”

Winners announced for Face Reading Contest

Face Reading Secrets with Rose Rosetree

Our New Mystery Solving Face Reading Contest has three winners, made official today. Three face reading posts will follow. Announcing the winners, I thank everyone who nominated a public figure for a face reading.

First Winner is Mayor Michael Bloomberg, proposed by JILL ERIN. The mystery she hopes to solve with face reading: What does the man have against super-size, yummy drinks?

Joking. That isn’t exactly it. We’ll get to her mystery-solving request when that face reading appears.

Second Winner is Tim Ferriss, author of best-selling lifestyle books such as “The Four Hour Workweek.” CURIOUS AS EVER nominated, and JORDAN added enthusiasm as well, for this quirky man with such a large following.

Seems ironic for me to take time reading this particular man’s face, as I will likely spend more than four hours on each of these blog posts, his included. Would that make him, in theory, worth my entire work week? CONTINUE READING

When an Empath Tries to “Get over Yourself.” A Guest Post from DAVE

Empath boundaries that work? They begin with consciousness.

Get over yourself” continues to be an interesting way to spark appreciation for one’s sense of self. Yesterday’s post on getting over yourself has generated some fascinating responses.

Not until I read these comments did it occur to me that, of course, we empaths have such a different perspective on “Myself,” we would have quite a range of perspectives on “Get over yourself.”

That’s because, to me, becoming a skilled empath involves waking up from inside. Along the way we empaths can develop a stronger sense of identity.

Outside the system of Empath Empowerment, much importance is given to boundaries. Ironically, that works better for non-empaths.

For an unskilled empath, boundaries in speech and action are not mere social skills. They depend on consciousness. By strengthening the self from the inside, with consciousness, automatically it becomes easier to:

For today’s post, here’s perspective of a man who knows from experience about Empath Empowerment® and becoming skilled as an empath, not merely talented (a.k.a. “An unskilled empath”).

Headings, links, and minor copy edits are mine; the rest is all DAVE’s. Expressed with a distinctive individuality that I hope he never, ever seeks to “Get over.”

SKILLED Empath Versus UNSKILLED Empath

As I think back on different jobs or situations from before becoming a skilled empath, it’s hard for me to remember my feelings or opinions. CONTINUE READING

Get over yourself, a version that works for spiritual development

Gotta love Earth School. The lessons are unrelenting, at least if you aim to grow. One of those lessons is really strange, at least if you happen to have a human ego structure.

It’s called “Get over yourself.”

Did you ever go to the store, reach the checkout counter, and find the guy at the cash register has zero interest in you?

Years ago, I went to Costco with my shopping cart loaded with goodies. My checkout gal was busy chatting away with the checkout guy at the next counter. She neither said hello nor looked at my face. Instead she handled my merchandise, took my money, and kept on talking to the person who mattered more to her, Cute Checkout Guy at the aisle next to ours.

Back in the day, I was indignant. Before leaving, I complained. Rose, of the honest and direct feedback. LOL.

It bothered me because I thought a checkout person was supposed to display at least a teeny bit of interest in the customer. CONTINUE READING

The Seven Biggest Questions

So you’re interested in Deeper Perception! Yet you also live in objective reality, inescapable so long as you live here at Earth School. What people say and do, located right on the surface of life.

Good old objective reality, where certain choices cannot be avoided. And where each choice carries consequences, like it or not.

So often, Blog-Buddies, talking with a client in a healing session, I say something like this, “We’ll get to that aura reading part soon. But first, let’s pay attention to objective reality, Because Deeper Perception never works well as a substitute for common sense.”

Sunday, March 24th, is the day for a new Pathways Expo, a fabulous local/regional fair of the Mind-Body-Spirit community in the metro Washington, D.C. area. I’ll be there giving a talk on “The Power of Face Reading,” signing autographs for my books, giving short face readings and aura readings; altogether 10 varieties of energy literacy readings to choose from. Yes, here is my last shout-out for those of you who might come to Bethesda, Maryland for the Spring Pathways Natural Living Expo this Sunday, March 24, 2013. One more great reason to come? You can meet THREE of my talented apprentices in the Energy Spirituality Mentoring Program, all of whom have kindly offered to help at my Expo Booth Sweet 16.

Writing today’s post, I’m thinking about some of the conversations I WON’T be having with folks visit “Rose Rosetree’s Energetic Literacy.” at that Pathways Expo.

Conversations about seven life choices that could trump any healing session of Energy Spirituality, any session or technique of Energy Medicine or Energy Psychology, any session of Past-Life Regression Therapy.

Seven choices that might seem simple, yet they carry so very many consequences. CONTINUE READING

What Is Householder Enlightenment? A fancy way to be codependent?

Which kind of self do you choose to have, householder or renunciate?

Enlightenment is not the apotheosis of codependency.

To put it another way, Householder Enlightenment does not mean being really, really good at anticipating needs of other people, then delivering it.

Let’s launch a new series of posts. From time to time, I would like to bring a fresh perspective on Householder Enlightenment.

And yes, today, let’s begin with one kind of pressure or ideal that may have been influencing you. Not that becoming co-dependent was ever, necessarily, announced officially as a Perfection Project for you by your parents or lover.

Self-sacrifice can work for Enlightenment only if…

You’re a renunciate on a path to Enlightenment. Or if — phooey on Enlightenment — you just want to be a tragic hero.

Otherwise, no. Codependency does not  fit well with householder life.

If you are a renunciate, you don’t officially have a human, individual self. You work towards extinguishing it, like one of those trick birthday candles that can’t be blown out.

As a renunciate, you would keep trying your best by squishing down your personal needs, substituting the official credo or rituals or meditative practices, aiming to do nothing on your own but everything as Divine inspiration.

Sometimes this works. Not often.

Blog-Buddies, I have had the chance to read many auras of people on a reunciate path to Enlightenment — some aura reading for myself, some for clients; some aura reading related to cord-cutting; some aura reading for research for our blog’s own Enlightenment Life List; sometimes doing aura reading from photos during phone sessions of research for clients.

Often these renunciates-in-practice were promised they were actually on a householder path to Enlightenment. Only the trusting spiritual seeker was sadly misinformed and, thus, wound up living the unhappy middle lifestyle, neither fish nor fowl, neither householder or renunciate, and definitely far from Enlightenment still.

Blog-Buddies, I have stopped counting how many folks on a path of renunciation are really miserable.

  • Many lie to themselves constantly. “Have faith” can be one of those sweet-sounding synonyms for “Lie to yourself.”
  • Or personal development becomes a full-time job, with the habit of fixing, healing, changing themselves all day long.
  • None of this moves out STUFF in their auras, though all that work sure can keep a person busy.

Your spiritual path does not have to be complicated. It is not required, ever, to lie to yourself. Nor to view your human self as “evil” or “something to overcome.” CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading Elvis Presley, How Fame Changed His Aura

Elvis Presley, still in the building dedicated to aura reading research
Elvis Presley, still in the building…. dedicated to aura reading research

Auras aren’t really changed by fame, of course. Not by love or money, political power, being named “Pope,” or any measure of worldly success. Each human is responsible for the use of free will. That’s what will most strongly affect a person’s aura over time.

Even the impact of collective consciousness, recently discussed at this blog, depends on choice. Social pressures, of every kind, can be increased or diminished based on one’s  willingness to participate in those powerful subconscious forces.

Months ago, I held one of our contests here at the blog: Fame Change Contest for Face Reading or Aura Reading, Your Choice . The final winning entry was saved, like a fine wine, for a special occasion.

Well, here it is, perfect for the first day of spring. When would be a more appropriate day to do aura reading research on “The King“? To some fans, Elvis still “hasn’t left the building.”

In his winning contest entry, DAVE wrote:

I want to nominate Elvis Presley, AKA The King. I can’t think of a better person to aura read for changes related fame. He struggled so publicly with addiction fueled probably by the complete insanity of his super stardom. Has anyone ever been as personally famous as Elvis, so recognizable? Probably double the amount of people in the world could identify a picture of Elvis than one of John Lennon.

What made Elvis tick, what it was like being that incredibly famous? Or maybe even identify which gifts or talents propelled that long, super-star career.

Ready to sing along with me? Okay, to read Elvis’s aura?

Here are the photos we’ll use:

Aura Reading Young Elvis

Here comes the large-pixel version, easy for you to use for aura reading Elvis Presley on a separate screen.

This Young Elvis photo grabs attention at the top of today’s post.

What, this, an aura photograph? Sure. When you have skills as an aura reader (all the way to Stage Three Energy Literacy), what happens? Every photo becomes an aura photo.

Reading Elvis’s Aura from his final concert

This great picture is easy for you to use for aura reading, showing Elvis from his last concert on a separate screen.

To learn more about how I do Aura Reading comparison readings, click onto our post about Aura Readings for Academy Award Nominees in 2013. Close enough to be relevant, even though I’m not going to research how much Elvis changed his chakra databanks, compared to normal, when performing in movies like “Love Me Tender.”

Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Connecting to Physical Reality

This chakra databank, often selected for reading auras at this blog, reveals so much about a person’s values, temporary focus, even positioning of consciousness.

Right now, Blog-Buddies, you have a way of watching your computer screen in order to read. Are you paying much attention to the physical reality of that screen, the words on it, where you happen to be, or what is happening around you? That, and more, is physical reality for a human being.

Moreover this chakra databank stores a pattern, right now, about how you are connecting to physical reality. Same with Elvis, in person or in a photograph.

Aura Reading Young Elvis

18 feet. Such tightly focused ambition! Elvis has tremendous intensity of focus, concentrating hard on getting his moves right, his voice working the magic.

Like any successful technician in a performing art, this singer and dancer isn’t trying to make us aware of technique.

Yet Elvis has an overwhelming inner experience of doing his job.

Technically, his performing job isn’t about the impact, not now. Fame isn’t a consideration.

Elvis is simply doing his best, in a rather self-conscious and self-contained way. He manipulates his body and props like the microphone, striving to make best use of this performance opportunity. Physical reality is, in short, a means to further his enormous ambition to succeed as a performer.

What fueled Elvis’s tremendous success?

Here’s our first clue: Unrelenting, super-concentrated, ambition.

Aura Reading Elvis During His Last Concert

4 inches. Fatigue. Resignation. A strong will to live keeps this wreck of a nervous system standing and able to perform.

Elvis’s sense of identity prizes his role as singer. Quite literally, he lives to sing.

Right now he’s clinging to that role as a singer, a bit like a tiny baby making a fist around a grownup’s finger and holding on for dear life.

Only difference: A baby making this gesture physically tends to be playful, full of vitality, having a great time exploring the fresh new body. By contrast, Elvis can barely function in his exhausted, STUFF-filled, neurologically misfiring, drug-torqued nervous system.

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Sex Appeal

The Sex Appeal Chakra Databank doesn’t necessarily involve performing. But, with Elvis, even by the “Young Elvis” photo, this aspect of life is no longer personal.

Performers who make themselves into sex symbols change every chakra databank related to sexuality, including a person’s usually spontaneous showing at the Belly Chakra Databank for Sex Appeal.

Aura Reading Young Elvis

Fills the room plus 2 inches. Sex appeal doesn’t come easily to Elvis. He is doing a kind of energetic trick to summon it forth, striving to project sexiness into the room.

Boldness about flaunting sexiness is part of the courage involved. Elvis the Pelvis is purposely projecting sexuality while he performs, pushing his sex appeal to the limit.

For this young singer, it feels like a great act of rebellion, shockingly bold perhaps, for a young man like him to purposely create all the most outrageous moves possible, just to call attention to an aspect of life that is, in his upbringing, not for crowd viewing.

Yes, socially it’s bold and takes concentration. Aurically it takes great resolve, to act in a manner that is so very purposely sexually arousing.

Hard work! Yet somebody has to do it. Because fame is to be gained by doing this. Plus this rebellious kind of experiment is huge fun. Elvis does seem to be getting away with it.

Imagine a young actress who doesn’t feel especially sexy. Boldly, however, she gets all dressed up in the most provocative costume available. Then she focuses hard on making the moves that are socially considered to be sexually alluring.

That’s the equivalent of Elvis in our aura photo above. He executes a combination of pretending and striving.

One big difference is that, unlike a female sex symbol like Marilyn Monroe,  Elvis isn’t projecting sexual allure in a conventional way. With his voice and his moves and his presence, this young man is creating something entirely new.

Consciously he is quite aware of the inventiveness. (More on Elvis’ performance creativity coming up in today’s aura reading.)

What fueled Elvis’s tremendous success?

Sex does sell. A new kind of outrageous sex appeal was able to sell exceptionally well.

Aura Reading Elvis During His Last Concert

5 inches. Memory of having great sex appeal lingers.

The overall quality to this chakra databank is half-dead, as though visiting a haunted house that is physically in decay, yet containing many thought forms of happy memories.

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Sex Drive

This chakra databank reveals personal libido, quite different from attempting to arouse sex drive towards himself, which was read in the last chakra databank. This portion of Elvis’ aura concerns his own spontaneous sexual desire.

Aura Reading Young Elvis

5 inches. Elvis has other concerns right now. He isn’t personally involved in experiencing anything related to sex.

Sigmund Freud may have had some pretty extreme theories about sublimation of sex, but I do believe Freud was right about one aspect. A person has only so much personal life force energy available at any given time.

Aura reading suggests that, right now, at the time of this (aura) photo, Elvis Presley is not involved with enjoying sexual feelings that are personal. Instead he is simply performing. Working really hard, actually.

When it comes to enjoying sex personally, right now, not a consideration. The performer’s attention is elsewhere.

What fueled Elvis’s tremendous success?

Plenty of Elvis’ peers could have been enjoying sex more than he was, during a period in his life so devoted to gaining fame. Elvis was directing his sex drive toward fulfilling his career ambitions.

Aura Reading Elvis During His Last Concert

To the moon. By this time in his life, Elvis doesn’t exactly have a big sex drive. Through a drug haze, Elvis just has a big memory of past sexual exploits, plus his a once-upon-a-time big sex drive.

While performing, he is reliving this.

Probably it helps that the audience, and collective consciousness, and personal fame, all carry forward an equating Elvis with sexual vibrancy.

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Creativity (in Everyday Life)

Famous or not, anyone human has circuits for creativity. In Face Reading Secrets(R), creativity shows in face data. In the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses(R), creativity shows as well.

This chakra databank is a universal component — and expression — of natural creativity for everyday things like:

  • How you put on your socks
  • Whether you brush your teeth the same way every time
  • When a plate of food is before you, which sequence of bites you choose

We’ll get to performer’s creativity later. First let’s check out this quintessentially human kind of creativity.

Aura Reading Young Elvis

19 miles. Elvis has dedicated all his personal creativity to stay in character whenever possible and to constantly gather information about tricks and twirls and vocal inflections and every possible nuance he can use when he is on stage.

This is reminiscent of how Daniel Day-Lewis prepared for the Academy Award winning performance in “Lincoln.” Reportedly, the actor stayed in character even while talking on his mobile phone. Unfazed by anachronisms or anything else that might stand in the way of his performer’s mission!

But with Elvis, here is my first finding of something truly special about him. Not just the size of this chakra databank but the quality.

Elvis is plugged into a group in collective consciousness that is showing him how to effectively bring explicit, outrageous sex appeal into public performance. This isn’t a group on planet, either. It is one of those astral worlds that, from time to time, influences leaders in human endeavors — whether a Mozart, an Einstein (Where it would be a really high-frequency astral world, way higher vibes than Earth School) or an Esther Hicks (Where Abraham would be a medium-low frequency astral being).

Professional channelers are hardly the only people on earth who work with angels or Divine Beings. Could be, all or most major breakthroughs in human consciousness are collaborations.

In my humbler line of work, every book I write, every workshop I teach, even each blog post, is consciously co-created with a Divine Being. This process is different from trance channeling. It can be called “Conscious channeling.” I prefer the term co-creation.

What fueled Elvis’s tremendous success?

He was given access, support, to a big energy waiting to come into earth. Off-planet beings collaborated with him, even though I doubt he was conscious of the support in that way. In this chakra databank, I simply experience his having figured out a way to charge up to a kind of energy generator.

Elvis was hooked up, alright. He was hooked up to the zeitgeist, the spirit of the time.

Someone was needed to bring a more vibrant, public, outrageous acceptance of sexuality into his society. Elvis lived for this. It was his spiritual calling, his work as a World Server. It was his delight.

Even off stage, at this time in his life, Elvis was all about discoveries. His personal Ph.D. at Earth School could have been called, “Finding creative ways to bring vibrant, free sexiness into a stronger expression, right in public, right on the surface of life.”

Aura Reading Elvis During His Last Concert

2 inches. Elvis doesn’t do creativity any more, not in everyday life. If he can put on his socks at all, that’s an achievement.

However, while performing, he remembers that he used to be mega-creative.

(This kind of memory, enlivened at the time of this photo, explains why this chakra databank is 2 inches, rather than in shutdown at 1/8 of an inch.)

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Creativity While Performing

Although most chakra databanks are standard issue for all human adults, some are related to personal choices and projects and lifestyle. By the time of our “Young Elvis” aura photo, this man had enough invested in performing — time, focus, energy, learning, soul engagement — for him to have this “Creativity While Performing” chakra databank installed, plus others like it elsewhere in his energy field.

Aura Reading Young Elvis

To the moon. While performing, Elvis becomes part of a flow. The creative energy carries him forward. Again, he is connected up with a force in consciousness, plus a connection to collective consciousness on earth.

He’s going through the improvised version of what he had rehearsed, feeling the special inflow of energies that nearly takes him over while performing.

What fueled Elvis’s tremendous success?

At this time in his life, Elvis’ mind-body-spirit system is healthy enough to handle massive downloads of energy and information while he develops his personal style, installing and refining the technical skills of performing.

Aura Reading Elvis During His Last Concert

1/8 inch. Creatively, it is hollow, performing. Elvis is relying on his fame to get him through.

He is running on empty, and not only creatively. Still he is comfortable with faking the creativity.

Some of this faking aspect of this chakra databank relates to all the practice he has done, over the years, being totally stoned on some chemical or other, yet going through the motions. Expertly hiding.

Personal comment by Rose: One of the saddest chakra databanks I have ever read. Elvis is so resigned to not having creativity left. He is so used to covering up. And, yes, he is so addicted to performing, to that fame.

Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra for Communication as a Performer

Again, this chakra databank is part of the personal set of free-willish chakra databanks, given how Elvis Presley has been living.

In case you’re wondering whether it is possible to fake this kind of thing at the level of auric modeling, consider…

Sometimes, Blog-Buddies, you may meet someone who wants to be a famous rock star. Your neighbor JOE, for instance.

JOE tells everyone that he is going to be a famous rock star. He brags about it. He hangs out at Starbucks by day and The Lucky Guy Neighborhood Tavern by night. JOE tries to impress dates that way.

JOE does everything but practice at his guitar or sing for more than a few minutes per day.

He’s a serious hobbyist, alright. Only his hobby isn’t performing as a musician. JOE’s hobby is playing the game of being an emerging rock star. For him so far, no Throat Chakra Databank for Communication as a Performer.

For Elvis, definitely. He owns this chakra databank. So let’s go read it.

Aura Reading Young Elvis

Fills the room plus two inches. An electrical quality is part of Elvis’s Throat Chakra Databank for Communicating as a Performer.

Any sentient being would notice something different happening. Call it “A gift” or “Elvis’s destiny,” he’s got something going on now that broadcasts, “Pay attention, everyone.”

What fueled Elvis’s tremendous success?

Elvis is able to handle this sizzling, electrical, mega-powerful energy. He allows it to go through him. Like the rider of a bucking bronco, Elvis is able to keep singing and holding on to objective reality, developing circuits for transmitting this immense energy while doing all the technical parts of his performance.

Aura Reading Elvis During His Last Concert

Fills the room, minus 2 inches. Partly Elvis is using the old, reliable plug-in to the usual electrical, mega-powerful energy.

At the same time, it’s as though he is crying from deep inside.

Much of the old gift remains, whether habit or just his familiar destiny. So bittersweet, how some of this gift has not gone yet. Just about everything else that makes life worthwhile is shot, gone, wrecked.

Elvis clings to that vestige of talent, and sweet memory, that does remain.

Conclusion

James Hillman wrote movingly about Elvis in “The Soul’s Code.” To paraphrase, in the language of Energy Spirituality, Elvis did his job as a World Server. Yet he didn’t do well in his human life.

And this, DAVE and other Blog-Buddies, is where we can find a practical conclusion from today’s aura reading.

It IS possible to do your best as a World Server, yet also attend to your human life. Fame is not the big factor. Free will is the big factor.

On our Enlightenment Life List, right now, we have George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and other mega-famous performers.

They have managed to balance the human and the public; the personal and the World Server.

They are walking expressions of Householder Enlightenment.

Whether we achieve Enlightenment in this lifetime or not, whether we have 15 minutes of fame or 50 or (amazingly, in today’s culture) zero — guess what? One day at a time, putting on one sock at a time, we can make choices to live authentically as ourselves.

What can matter to you more than fame

Pendulums swing from one direction to another. That happens historically, with cultural and social trends, not only with physical pendulums.

Right now, Blog-Buddies, we live at an extreme. Surface matters. Shallow wins. Vanity culture is having its big old Kali Yuga victory.

Sure, fame and wealth and pretty are all supposed to be mega important.

Only you can choose how important they have to be to you.

Currently certain values are not fashionable:

  • Personal integrity
  • Kindness to others
  • Spiritual self-authority
  • Ethical, appropriate behavior in objective reality
  • Quietly, privately moving forward on your own path of personal development

Could Elvis has had just as great a career in the world if he had cared about values like these? I think so.

But what matters was that he did his best, in his way, in a powerfully evolutionary lifetime. Presley did bring strong vibrations into this world about sexual freedom, overcoming sexual shame, social rebellion, a kind of sexual self-authority.

Whatever the outcome during one lifetime, Elvis used his free will to learn here at Earth School. In that respect, during his human incarnation — just like you and me — Elvis Presley lived like a king.
