Welcome, my fellow consciousness nerds! Welcome, all who are curious about what aura reading can be. Welcome, those of you who’ve had sessions with me and wondered, “How did she do that?”
Today’s article is dedicated to you. And inspired by the five groups of people who have drawn all these skills out of me:
- You recent graduates of my Empath Empowerment® Level 1 Workshop– a spectacularly talented group of empaths, and a delight to teach.
- All of you who have taken my workshops or mentored with me, allowing me to teach you at depth.
- Experts in Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES), both my hardworking apprentices and you who now serve humanity as RES professionals.
- All of you who have been my clients for personal sessions; especially those who have been long-term clients, exploring the cumulative results of RES sessions.
- And all you Blog-Buddies but especially those of you who actively comment and/or guest post at this blog.
When I can share the best that I know with you, and you really get it, that gives me heart to share more.
Because nothing in this world brings me greater joy than co-creating new knowledge in this emerging field.
Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) exists to help people, that simple. New discoveries flow because of those who value the help. Then this human teacher, co-creating with the Divine, winds up having more to share than ever.
So, Thanks to All of You
[Note: Since publication of this article, special thanks to David Buckland for creating a clever flowchart to show the development of energetic literacy. ]
Inspired by you, I am so happy to announce today the first comprehensive listing of all the stages I know about, so far. Yes, for the first time I will go public with 15 stages of RES-style Energetic Literacy. All are part of the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses®.
You see, for years, I’ve held back and only written about the first three stages of energetic literacy. But there is more, definitely more. The skills flow on demand, as is the case with my learning, then teaching all of these: Energy READING skills, energy HEALING skills, Empath Empowerment® Coaching, and Enlightenment Coaching.
All four specialties within RES are designed to work in the Age of Awakening. These days, all the four specialties are growing as fast as my springtime garden. Tulips fully shouting their joy. Shy lilacs, preparing to blossom. Gloriously fragrant peonies that will be ready… when they are good and ready.
So here we have a something new, Blog-Buddies. A current list.
15 Stages of Energetic Literacy Used in RES by April 18, 2016
Stage 1 Energetic Literacy: General Energy Readings
Picking up a vibe. Seeing a color. Noticing light. Feeling an energy field. Sensing that a person is good or bad. Any of these random experiences would count as the sweet beginning of energetic literacy.
But Stage 1 is just a start. And energy sensitivity can become just a shiny new toy, not used with discernment.
My advice? Stage 1 Energetic Literacy is beautiful. Just don’t get stuck there, Blog-Buddies.
Stage 2 Energetic Literacy: Generalizations Plus Some Skill
Generalizing about auras. Finding a way to read auras when you wish to, not just by chance.
Often Stage 2 Energetic Literacy involves trying to see auras, or copying a teacher famed for clairvoyance.
Generalizations are common, such as the “color by number” type of aura reading, where the goal is to see a color and then apply set meanings to interpret the color. Or sometimes the name of a color is presented as if this actually constituted a meaningful aura reading.
Generalizing about chakras is also common. External validation keeps aura readers motivated. (This can also keep aura readers from developing fully, doing justice to their awesome lifelong gifts for reading auras.)
Anyone at Stage 2 Energetic Literacy can progress farther. However, certain habits may need to be un-learned. I would definitely recommend either taking a workshop with me or doing personal mentoring.
Stage 3 Energetic Literacy: Fluent, Effortless, and Practical Aura Reading
Using your God-given gifts for reading auras. Being able to read anyone’s aura in depth and detail. Developing your own interpretations for what you find, and using internal validation to refine your skills.
In short, Stage 3 Energetic Literacy is when you begin to use aura reading in practical ways, to enrich your life NOW.
Incidentally, this is as far as I got when writing “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses: Celestial Perception Made Practical.”
But full Stage 3 Energetic Literacy also includes reading chakra databanks. And reading auras from regular photos.
You can learn these components of Stage 3 Energetic Literacy from “Read People Deeper: Body Language + Face Reading + Auras.” I do recommend that, if you’re serious about aura reading, you first play your way through “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.”
Stage 4 Energetic Literacy (Optional): Skilled Empath Merge in Person
Available to empaths only and, of course, skilled empaths only — as all empaths can become more comfortable (personally) and more skilled (technically).
The skills of Empath Empowerment® are mostly a whole other specialty, not in the RES category of energy READING skills. An empath can become skilled without even caring to learn techniques for Skilled Empath Merge.
But if the empath is ready to learn, it’s so valuable. Because Skilled Empath Merge brings more personal experience of another person’s aura than can happen from aura reading techniques. That’s why I count this as Stage 4 Energetic Literacy.
This kind of empath merge is done while your “Discovery Person” — the recipient of your Skilled Empath Merge — is physically in the room with you.
Stage 5 Energetic Literacy (Optional): Skilled Empath Merge from Regular Photos
More advanced than Stage 4 techniques, this form of Skilled Empath Merge allows one to experience directly what it is like to be your Discovery Person, while that individual isn’t in the room with you. Instead you’re using a skill set for researching that person from regular photographs.
This is comparable to reading auras from regular photos in Stage 3 Energetic Literacy. Only the empath’s equivalent allows for an immediacy of experience that is more personal and intense… and transformative for the person using energetic literacy.
Around here is as good a time as any to mention that progressing to Stage 3 Energetic Literacy and beyond can allow a person to make tremendous strides in personal evolution.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that about half my apprentices in RES are also on my Enlightenment Life List. And the others, who also routinely use skills of Stage 3 Energetic Literacy, are moving forward very, very rapidly on that highly personal path to Enlightenment.
Stage 6 Energetic Literacy (Optional): Skilled Empath Merge by “Riding the Consciousness Elevator”
This form of Skilled Empath Merge brings the ability to research chakra databanks at will.
This is comparable to reading chakra databanks in Stage 3 Energetic Literacy, only more personal and intense. And amazingly informative.
Stage 7 Energetic Literacy: Reading Chakra Databanks from Head Shots
Most of the aura readings done at this blog have been done from photographs that did not show the entire torso. Did you ever wonder how that was possible?
It’s a big enough deal, learning the Stage 3 Energetic Literacy skill of reading auras from a picture…
- That shows the body parts you’ll research (like the ribcage area)
- Which correspond to chakras (like the Solar Plexus Chakra)
- And, therefore, contain all the chakra databanks within that chakra (like “Sharing Power in Close Relationships” or “Intellectual Growth).
With all respect to aura readers in different fields — psychic development, channeling, mediumship, energy medicine, energy psychology — they’re usually at Stage Two Energetic Literacy tops. Of course, they have skills they will NOT be taught in RES, and can help people so beautifully.
However, it is a very big deal to be able to research chakra databanks OR read auras in detail from regular photos. To combine this is — woo-hoo, Stage 3 Energetic Literacy.
In the context of valuing technical skill, Blog-Buddies, you can appreciate this. It is another big deal, advanced (though totally effortless), kind of skill when you learn how to read any chakra databanks you wish from a photo big enough to show a person’s face and neck.
For many years, I took me a long time to do this phase of energetic literacy. After many years and many aura readings, I found a faster way to do this. Now I can teach it much faster, hooray! (When the student is ready.)
Stage 8 Energetic Literacy (Optional): Skilled Empath Merge with a Non-Human “Discovery Person”
A “Person” Who is Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, or a Machine.
Your ability to do this depends on whether or not you have the related empath gift:
- Animal Empath Ability
- Plant Empath Ability
- Crystal Empath Ability
- Mechanical Empath Ability
Then comes the skill of safely doing this sort of empath merge.
Stage 9 Energetic Literacy: Thrill Your Soul Aura Research
A specialized version of Thrill Your Soul Aura Research is adding a bit more skill and then facilitating Name Alignment Research.
Stage 10 Energetic Literacy: Vibrational Re–Positioning® to Transform Beliefs
Researching the impact of one belief at a time on a person’s chakra databanks — that’s Stage 10 Energetic Literacy.
- An existing belief could be researched based on what is in a chakra databank (i.e., It’s ongoing at a subconscious level).
- Alternatively a belief being researched could be installed as a form of PUT IN, or waking up a stronger soul expression.
- Appropriately facilitating this sequence is the easiest technique to learn within Vibrational Re-Positioning®.
- I’m mentioning it here because, seems to me, it is a distinct, developmental skill within reading auras as well.
In case you’re wondering…
Skills of Vibrational Re-Positioning® are at the leading edge of energy HEALING in RES. The trademark covers a variety of skills that allow the RES practitioner to help clients overcome problems and evolve extra-fast.
These energy HEALING skills are specialized, demanding development within energetic literacy,; they’re kind of fascinating for client and RES practitioner alike.
But the bigger point is how this particular skill of Vibrational Re-Positioning® can transform beliefs in a highly specific way, changing impacts around causation of karma. Afterwards the client easily begins living the results of an upgraded belief.
Stage 11 Energetic Literacy: Remote Aura Reading for a Client
Using energetic literacy when you are present with a person in energetic real time but you are not physically present together.
This skill of energetic literacy must not be taught too soon. I make it available to RES professionals only when I’m convinced they are ready. Otherwise they just won’t do as good a job as they otherwise would.
You can see, on this list of RES experts, the individuals whose scope of practice includes doing sessions over the telephone or smartphone or via Skype.
The relevant analogy would be when a ballet dancer would like to start wearing toe shoes. When the dancer is ready, it becomes ethical for the teacher to teach.
Stage 12 Energetic Literacy: Reading Energetic Holograms of Your Client
An energetic hologram is stored information, a deep part of a person’s subconscious mind and aura.
Whenever you have been with a person in energetic real time (in the room, on the phone, via webcam), your aura contains complete aura-level information about yourself and every other person who was present with you, one split second at a time. That’s an energetic hologram.
In session, it can be helpful to pull out one energetic hologram after another, researching chakra databanks as appropriate.
Like everything about energetic literacy, the process always is done through a combination of skill and co-creating with the Divine. It’s important not to confuse this stage of energetic literacy with a psychic reading, where a spirit guide might report a story.
Reading energetic holograms of a client is not done by receiving info from spirit guides. And the client does not learn a story or interpretation, as can (beautifully) be done by some psychics.
Instead, one chakra databank is read at a time.
- For example, Gladys is learning about how differently she handles sharing power in relationships.
- She gets to compare a current subconscious and energetic pattern with how she handled the big fight with her ex.
- And then later a different energetic hologram is researched, revgealing how the same chakra databank reveals how she handled a big fight as a three-year-old.
Click here for many examples at this blog post about reading energetic holograms.
Helping a client this way can be very useful. And it’s no more difficult than any level of energetic literacy, once you’ve developed the kind of skill required.
Stage 13 Energetic Literacy: Reading Energetic Holograms of Your Client Plus Another Person
Reading an energetic hologram of any individual is a bit of heavy lifting. Okay, it feels more like “light lifting.” Still, it’s a very abstract advancement of energetic literacy.
Exponentially more challenging — although totally easy once you get the hang of it — is moving out an energetic hologram from a person who was with your client at the time of the incident.
Then, too, you can research one chakra databank at a time. For example, helping your client Gladys to understand what made Joe tick during an incident for which no photograph is available.
Stage 14 Energetic Literacy: Reading Energetic Subroutines
In this skill of energy HEALING in RES, the practitioner facilitates permanent removal of “Energetic Subroutines.” These are energetic patterns at a subconscious level that cause a person to habitually substitute one kind of talent (and its related chakra databank) for something else.
In “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy,” you can read many examples of energetic subroutines that are collateral damage from doing Law of Attraction practices. (Sorry about that.) (Like any kind of STUFF, energetic subroutines can always, always, always be healed.)
This blog post can also help to expand your understanding of energetic subroutines.
As a skill of energy READING, this stage of energetic literacy is fascinating and illuminating. It is also required for Vibrational Re-Positioning® to Remove Energetic Subroutines, which is one of the skill sets for energy HEALING covered by the trademark for “Vibrational Re-Positioning.”
Stage 15 Energetic Literacy: Vibrational Re-Positioning® to Awaken the Soul’s Potential
For now I’m bundling many skills of perception and energy healing under this same category. I mean, really, 15 stages is plenty for now. Don’t you agree?
Just FYI, the aura reading component for this category includes how to research Soul-Level Agreements from before this incarnation, agreements that can often be changed.
And then there’s my absolute favorite for now, which is the slow-motion reading of the firing of chakra databanks. When this is combined with one of the fancier skills of Vibrational Re-Positioning®, what happens?
The RES practitioner is able to delicately co-create finding and reprogramming the equivalent of buggy computer code in the client’s aura and subconscious mind.
Maybe that sounds abstract, but it’s used to help solve some very human-type problems, like self-confidence with business or spontaneously putting yourself first.
In Conclusion, for Now
Some of these skills may find their way into workshops. How can you tell? Look at the descriptions for any of my workshops, available here. I think you’ll find it pretty easy to figure out.
What about gaining these skills from my how-to books? To date, “only” the first three stages of energetic literacy are taught through my books. Might I suggest? Your progress will be far more enjoyable and rapid if you can do some personal mentoring with me, or take a related workshop.
- A skilled teacher is necessary because problems like these are almost impossible to detect. In “The Martian,” the hero does pretty big-deal surgery on himself. In real life, people don’t have to do such heroics.
- Teachers are especially important for skills that involve consciousness, which in RES means energy READING skills, energy HEALING skills, empath coaching, and Enlightenment coaching. No matter how big a fan you are of do-it-myself, for certain skills it has its limits.
If you undergo personal mentoring or a workshop, you don’t have to know in advance there’s a problem or limitation. It’s my job to identify and coax away old habits of straining, trying, focusing hard, etc.
Time and again, a Day of Mentoring winds up including a huge breakthrough for my student. New kinds of effortlessness are discovered — useful for spiritual evolution, not just energetic literacy. So please consider that, if it appeals to you.
In my experience, learning the first three stages of energetic literacy can be a very helpful part of your path to Enlightenment. (Though no energetic literacy is required for developing higher states of consciousness. You do know that, right?)
Summing up, from a Teaching Perspective
Blog-Buddies, you can definitely learn all the first three stages of energetic literacy. Know that this is the basis for all mind-body-spirit work.
I believe that sound skills of aura reading can greatly help anyone who works in mind-body-spirit — adding precision.
To be blunt, energetic literacy is needed for maintaining quality. Otherwise it’s too easy to confuse beliefs and hopes with results. A bit like recent exchanges we’ve been having about the gap between how lovely a vegan lifestyle appears versus what results tend to be.
Just as mathematics is the language of science, we benefit from learning energetic literacy for energy healing arts or coaching empaths or serving in a leadership role for those who seek Enlightenment.
Of course, if you’re involved in the field of energy spirituality (in contrast to energy medicine or energy psychology), it is really, really helpful to be able to research your clients appropriately.
Well, three cheers to any of you who have read all the way to the end of this article!!! Questions, anyone?
