Enlightenment update — that’s the purpose of today’s article. Here I’ll summarize my latest findings about two different types of Enlightenment. Inspired by my perspective as Founder of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES).
Have I ever been struggling lately, in my role as an Enlightenment Coach! All the distinctive RES skills converge on discerning these two types of Enlightenment — the Energy READING skills, Energy HEALING skills, Empath Empowerment® Coaching. Plus the background which has specifically prepared me for Enlightenment Coaching.
Within one week, two more folks from the RES community have moved into Enlightenment, bringing the total up to 30.
Because I work with clients directly, that hands-on experience keeps moving me toward the leading edge. Amazingly fast, things are moving now. Consequently I keep refining my approach, always with the aim of helping YOU.
Enlightenment Updates for The Age of Awakening
You see, so much is changing in these early years of The Age of Awakening.
All spiritual seekers today need to know about both models of Enlightenment: Age of Awakening Enlightenment and Traditional Enlightenment. (Yes, once again I’m changing the names of categories at this blog. Haha!)
But two names won’t change with this blog post. Giving examples, I’ll name the hypothetical people, Joe and Gladys.
Thanks to Gladys and Joe, I’ll describe the basics of a very complex set of observations that I’ve been gathering for years. This simple blog post is the most I can offer right now. (Blog-Buddies, you may know, I’ve been a bit busy lately preparing my first-ever Online Workshop, complete with that free intro that so many of you have signed up for already!)
May today’s post — plus your comments — bring more clarity of understanding within this RES community. And, even, beyond. Let’s bring more truth into conversations all over the world that people are having about self-realization.
True of All Enlightenment
Compared with everyday life, Enlightenment is a higher state of consciousness. Giving rise to words like:
- Spiritual Liberation
Energetically the person is using full potential. Aura reading shows awakeness, harmony, and balance.
After crossing the threshold into Enlightenment, spiritual evolution continues. However, the quality of consciousness depends on which type of Enlightenment a person attains.
Enlightenment Update about “Traditional Enlightenment”
This is the kind of Enlightenment you’ll read about all over the Internet. Finding it in beautiful books. Also in discourses from wonderful sages and saints and gurus.
My latest — and hopefully final name for it — is “Traditional Enlightenment.” Because this term emphasizes what most people understand. Seems like Traditional Enlightenment is what they’re used to thinking about. (Just as “Seeing the colours” is what most folks are used to thinking about, rather than “aura reading” or “energetic literacy.”)
Want a super-trendy name for Traditional Enlightenment? That would be “Non-Duality.” Since Joe’s sense of self becomes a sense of Self, that term fits fine. With this form of Enlightenment, Divine is all that matters now to Joe. Certainly not his little human identity.
Game won! No more identification with Joe’s life as “Joe.” All has become the Divine Self, flavoring Joe’s experience with an underlying concentrated happiness. Called what? “Bliss.”
Witnessing Joe’s human life, it’s interesting. Yet that little human illusion is no longer “Who am I?” Rather, Joe experiences himself as Divine.
Enlightenment Update about “Simplicity Enlightenment”
In past blog posts, I’ve used the term “Simplicity Enlightenment” to emphasize the simplicity and aspect of nonduality.
It’s like a friend of mine in Traditional Enlightenment. Any time I’d talk with him, our conversation would start like this:
ROSE: How are you?
JOE: Never better.
Why “never better”? Always, always, always; year after year!?
Definitely, infinitely. Due to living in a blissful flow of eternity. You see, in Traditional Enlightenment, life really is simple (in that way).
Enlightenment Update about “The Surrender Model of Enlightenment”
Most recently, I’ve been using the term “The Surrender Model of Enlightenment” for what I’ll now be calling… Traditional Enlightenment.
Why? Because Joe’s personal sense of self is gone.
Many people, moving into either type of Enlightenment, notice a subtle invitation. Happening before they shift into a long-term higher state of consciousness. Seems like a certain letting go, or surrender, happens before moving into Traditional Enlightenment.
Once there, folks notice a marked willingness to go with the flow of life. Blog-Buddy CHRISTINE (a.k.a. PRIMMIE) expressed this beautifully in her Comment #24 at ONEderful March 2017:
I feel that my intelligence is not really mine, it’s divine and it comes through me, so I give it the form of “me” and I get to enjoy it.
Enlightenment Update about “Age of Awakening Enlightenment”
Many of you Blog-Buddies know about vibrational changes that have occurred with this Age of Awakening, ever since The Shift on December 21, 2012.
Not too many people have noticed yet — hey, it’s only been four years! Haha.
But there’s plenty to learn about that at this blog, including how to gain The New Strong. Consider this required reading for your Enlightenment Update!
The simplest way to define The Age of Awakening could be in terms of the new kind of Enlightenment. Because now it is possible for millions of people to move into this different kind of Enlightenment. Witness the uptick just at my blog alone!
Enlightenment Update about What Is Different
Defining Age of Awakening Enlightenment: The sense of self predominates, but mixed in with the Divine. Considerably more Divine presence than before Enlightenment.
Gladys, for instance, feels like herself. She cares passionately about her life and engages fully — using that self-actualized potential.
Nevertheless, the Divine presence has become her identity. It’s a shared consciousness. A new way for God to play in this world.
Here’s a handful of blog resources about the frictionless flow and joy… and humanity… that characterize living in this new kind of Enlightenment:
- A video interview about what I used to call “Householder Enlightenment.”
- Householder Enlightenment for DORIS, Not the Surrender Model
- Self-Actualization, RES and Me. A Guest Post by KRISTINE
- Moving into Enlightenment, a Guest Post by ADAM
Enlightenment Update Controversy
“Why make these distinctions?” some folks complain. Others tell me, “You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Or even “This Age of Awakening Enlightenment — face it, Rose. That’s just your consolation prize for those who don’t move into real Enlightenment.”
Many folks don’t believe me yet. Maybe they never will agree that Age of Awakening Enlightenment is the real deal. Or that most people living now will be moving into that version.
Time will tell, right? Plus more widespread energetic literacy could help others to recognize more clearly what’s happening.
Granted, some folks think it’s foolish of me to make any distinctions. For instance, “I do not make the distinction you do. I think there’s room for it all.” Then comes the dreaded word “Judgmental.”
Only I don’t happen to believe that’s helpful to lump together two very different forms of Enlightenment. Especially the Age of Awakening Enlightenment is very new to this planet. Besides, as an Enlightenment Coach, my goal is to share the best truth I know.
Long Before this Enlightenment Update, The Controversial List
Hosting an Enlightenment Life List has been seen as controversial, too. Who is Rose Rosetree to dare to comment on states of consciousness?
Three answers: Inspiration. Discernment. Consumer smarts for Post-New-Age spiritual seekers — that’s a third reason I offer that Enlightenment Life List.
Is my list perfect? Nope. Sometimes I have made mistakes. But whenever I’ve learned of mistakes, I’ve corrected them. Besides, I’ve learned that this list has helped many of you Blog-Buddies. Good enough for me!
Might I Be a Bit Ahead of My Time with this Enlightenment Update?
It’s hilarious, really. Since I’m not a psychic and I don’t make predictions about the future. Yet, in retrospect, sometimes I’ve landed there.
- First book for empaths? And still, I believe, the only trademarked system in America for empaths.
- First book on how to cut cords of attachment? And still, I believe, the only trademarked system in America for cutting cords of attachment.
- A hugely non-traditional way to read auras? With a trademarked system to match.
- An update on traditional face reading from “The mother of modern American physiognomy?”
- Vibrational Re-Positioning®?
- Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis®?
- For that matter, the mind-body-spirit field of Energy Spirituality?
Bringing leading-edge truth into Earth — that’s just what I do. Apparently. Including this Enlightenment update.
Funny thing is, personality-wise, I couldn’t be less of a rebel. Only I’ve had to face this particular choice: Staying in my comfort zone matters far less than… finding the truth. Telling the truth. Helping those I can help.
In conclusion, Blog-Buddies, I’m here to share my understanding about these two kinds of Enlightenment. Even if some readers disagree quite strongly.
Fortunately, three other components of RES exist. Choose from Energy READING Skills, the Energy HEALING Skills, and/or Empath Empowerment® Coaching. Whatever you find of greater interest, pursue that. Or go elsewhere on your sacred quest, and go in peace.
If I’ve helped you now, or planted a seed of truth for your future — to me, that’s worth any tangential outcomes.
