How Donald Trump Looks Like Bernie Sanders, Four Face Reading Shockers

Unless I were a face reader, I never would have noticed all the similarities between Sanders and Trump
Unless I were a face reader, I never would have noticed all the similarities between Sanders and Trump

What, Bernie Sanders has quite a lot in common with Donald Trump? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

Today’s face reading is the second in an occasional series of profiles of American presidential and (one of these days) vice-presidential candidates. Sometimes face readings, sometimes aura readings, maybe the occasional Skilled Empath Merge.

Since I’ve read the Democratic winner of the New Hampshire Presidential Primary, our next profile will be a face reading of the Republican winner, Donald Trump.

Have you noticed? These two men have several unusual — and significant —  facial characteristics in common.

I’ll alert you, and also tell you about two other rather interesting characteristics of the charismatic Republican candidate.

Yes! For our last aura reading of this year’s Oscar nominees, I choose Alicia Vikander. At our Contest for This Year’s Aura Reading Movie Reviews, her performance was nominated by IRENE. Also by GRACE, who wrote:

“I thought her performance was wonderful, with quite an emotional range. She convincingly portrayed this spouse who witnessed and stood by her beloved husband transforming into who he felt he really was.

“Alicia Vikander is having quite a year, another reason I think it would be interesting to have an aura reading.”

How Can You Tell If You Have Spiritual Courage? A Guest Post by IRENE

Following your own spiritual path can take courage. Modestly, IRENE describes hers.
Spiritual courage can be difficult to recognize. Modestly, IRENE describes hers.

Spiritual courage can be hard to recognize.

In this gorgeous guest post, IRENE comes to terms with her own humble, human version of spiritual courage.

The fact that Rose considered that I had a difficult upbringing — See her intro to my last guest post— took me by surprise.

People in my family didn’t hate me or ostracize me. They just guilted me. They were (and still are) sad about my choices.

I wonder, does emotional manipulation count as something that makes a childhood difficult? CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading Movie Review Starring Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo, today it’s your turn for an aura reading.

At our Aura Reading Movie Review of Rachel McAdams’s performance in “Spotlight,” she did the best of any actors this year who’s received the full-out energetic literacy treatment. Was excellence alive on that set or what? Today let’s turn to another actor from that film. He was likewise nominated for a Best Supporting role: Mark Ruffalo.

And over at our Contest for Aura Reading Movie Reviews in 2016. IRENE just added the third request for researching this actor. (GRACE W set things rolling and then I added a formal vote yesterday.)

So it’s official, Mark Ruffalo has been nominated more often than anyone left on that list, since so many fascinating performers have been proposed for consideration. Here we go, woo-hoo!

In an interview with The Boston Globe, Ruffalo told the reporter:

“It really could have been me. I did go to a Catholic church [and to Catholic school]. I have friends who were abused,” he said. “So you know, that was my truth as well as [Rezendes’s] truth. It’s a universal truth.”

How Can a Person Believe in a God Like That? A Guest Post by SANDRA

What if you just don't fit in with the crowd?
What if you just don’t fit in with the crowd?

What a mixture of topics we have at this blog. It strikes me anew this morning, Blog-Buddies.

I was just about to give you an invitation. And, hey, I’m still going to….

Like me, you may think it would be a good idea to help more people find this blog. Well, here’s something you might do.

If you have friends or family members who are excited about the Academy Awards show this Sunday night, how about sending them a link to one of our articles with an Aura Reading Movie Review?

On the other hand, you might not choose to send friends a link to the following guest post. Because this whole theme of what is Christian versus what’s merely “Christian,” etc. could be THE most controversial topic ever discussed here at the blog.

Unquestionably it takes courage to think for yourself when the stakes are as high as the sky… and beyond. Yet every one of you Blog-Buddies has done that, haven’t you? CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading Movie Review Starring Rachel McAdams

At our Contest for This Year’s Aura Reading Movie Reviews, Rachel McAdams has been nominated by two of our Canadian Blog-Buddies, BRANDI and CATHY.

What a shock! I’ll be researching a role that is way less freaky and scary than any of the other performances that I’ve researched for you’all so far for Academy Awards 2016.

As you may know, aura reading and Skilled Empath Merge magnify the intensity of an experience. “Ordinary” people in everyday life become plenty dramatic, and they’re certainly entertaining enough to fascinate me.

So, with an anticipatory sigh of relief, let’s explore the depths of Rachel McAdams’ performance as…

A reporter. Just a reporter in that role, I hope.

Granted, in “Spotlight” she’s researching the Catholic Church’s clergy sex-abuse scandal… and only those who have seen the movie can tell me if the character has some hideous backstory.

Perhaps a vendetta related to her beloved twin brother? A wrecked and ruined altar boy, years later deceased due to drilling extremely large “stigmata” onto his wrists as a cry for help?

Why Learn How to Read Auras?

Why aura reading can be a bright idea.
Aura reading can be a bright idea.

Why develop full energetic literacy? That’s almost like asking, “Why bother to learn how to read words on a screen, or in a book?”

Today’s article will give you more than 150 reasons, but you only need one.

But First, Can You Do This? Can You Learn?

Of  course you can, and it isn’t even terribly hard. Just takes a smallish amount of time, at least if you’re using the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses®.

If you can read the words on this screen, you can definitely learn to read auras. Accurately. In detail.

So Back to “Why, Why, Why Read Auras?”

The quick answer is that energetic literacy will give you a huge advantage in everyday life.

Another answer is that reading people deeper can give you great inside information about people at work, and also personal relationships. (And also yourself.)

Here’s a link to 50 different categories about very important make-or-break aspects of life. CONTINUE READING

Why I Believe in Developing Deeper Perception

There are so many beautiful perspectives on Enlightenment and subtle perception!
There are so many beautiful perspectives on Enlightenment and subtle perception!

It’s delightful to read the blog written by my friend DAVID BUCKLAND. Sure enough, that’s what I did bright and early this Sunday morning. I find the clarity and erudition about higher states of consciousness to be unmatched by any other Enlightenment expert I know.

However, that doesn’t mean I always agree with him.

This morning I opened up an article on The What and How of Subtle Perception. DAVID gives a beautiful analysis and context for what he calls “subtle perception” and I call “deeper perception” and still others call “celestial perception.”

At “Observations on the Road Home,” David advises, “If such things do begin to show up that’s fine. We should allow but not invest in them.”

What do I find? Just the opposite. We can do far more than allow. We can actively pursue.

Just as we can do far more than allow Enlightenment to unfold. We can actively pursue. CONTINUE READING

Molecular Empath Seiji Ozawa, Joyful in the Spotlight… All the Way Down to His Chakra Databanks

Announcing an aura reading to bring you joy
Announcing an aura reading to bring you joy

Okay, okay, so far this Oscar season our Aura Reading Movie Reviews have been just a tad depressing. Although I’m still hopeful that we will find at least ONE pretty happy film actor this year.

Now for something completely different. For my February newsletter I’m going back to the Kennedy Center Honors for 2016, where I found joyful Cicely Tyson just in time for the January issue. This time I’ll return to read venerable conductor Seiji Ozawa. As it happens, since then the 80-year-old musician has just won his first Grammy award for the year’s best opera recording.

The opera wasn’t “Carmen” or some other crowd-pleaser but “L’Enfant et les Sortileges,” a pretty obscure French opera composed by Maurice Ravel, better known for that catchy musical confection known as “Bolero.”

Ozawa-san seems to create a force field of joy. For instance, while researching this article I learned that he conducted a concert this month in Japan — where soprano Eri Habaya told a reporter this:

“It is my fond memory now that I was unable to even feel nervous during the performance….”

For our main newsletter article in “Read People Deeper” I’ll give you an aura reading. Clearly Maestro Seiji Ozawa is one of the top conductors in the world, but how happy is he? CONTINUE READING
