Anita Hill is in the news again, with a new movie on HBO. “Confirmation“chronicles the intense confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas after Anita Hill, a former employee, claimed he sexually harassed her.
Recently National Public Radio has broadcast “The Real Story” behind the confirmation battle. Nina Totenberg, the reporter who broke the story, has fascinating things to say about what transpired. Two audio links are supplied at the link I’ve just given you; both give insight into Anita Hill, a woman who spoke truth to power; Nina Totenberg, a reporter who wouldn’t give up; and the horrendous backlash that followed Anita Hill’s courageous testimony.
Today’s blog post gives you a different kind of inside story. About another kind of truth that Anita Hill set in motion. Indirectly. About the system trademarked as Aura Reading Through All Your Senses®.
In the political scheme of things, I know that my discovery was small potatoes. But I’m going to share that story because, in the world of energetic literacy — including the part of the world about Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) — energy READING skills are a pretty tasty and nourishing kind of potato dish, too.

Why does your personal energy matter for personal growth?
And, assuming that your personal energies do matter, among the many ways that people seek improvement energetically, what makes this field, Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) different?
Blog-Buddies, we’ve hadmuch here discussion latelyabout how to introduce friends or family members to this distinctive specialty within mind-body-spirit. Comments at this guest post have taught me a lot.
Let our Age of Awakening conversation continue, a shakeup of old assumptions. Together let’s question traditional ideas about Enlightenment and reading auras, ideas that I consider to be unworthy of this age. (And unworthy of you, if these hoary, outdated beliefs influence you now.)
Unworthy? How come? Because millions of people can now move into Enlightenment, and do it as householders. But not if they continue to seek self-realization in ways that, ironically, slow them down.
I’ve been doing sessions to dig out the STUFF related to my childhood. So hard-core childhood STUFF that you can overwhelm professional counsellors with. And this post is directed to people who are coming to Rose for similar reasons and to encourage them to persevere.
I guess you’ve worked on yourself a lot already. You’ve done counselling, or just various forms of self-help and and you don’t know how much to invest in RES sessions. Are they worth it, or not? You may be resistant to giving yet another therapy or healing modality a shot or trusting yet another self labelled healer.
I was sick and tired of managing the emotional side effects and I had a strong intuition that somewhere in energy healing land there was a healing modality that would just shovel it all out. CONTINUE READING →
Usually this blog is reader-friendly. I’ll share my perspective to the extent that I think it can help you Blog-Buddies. Comments and blog posts are only personal to the extent I deem helpful or historically interesting.
But sometimes we experts at Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) have additional frustrations related to what is mainstream in New Age spirituality and mainstream ideas about energy, healing, and so forth.CONTINUE READING →
Prepare for grit and grime and down-to-earth, all ye who enter into reading today’s blog post. Because, really, there’s more to Enlightenment Coaching — or energetic literacy — than fantasizing about happy rainbows and friendly cupids. Or, perhaps, receiving a special delivery cosmic valentine from your favorite form of God.
Today I’m longing to tell it like it is. So I will. Hey, this is my own personal blog.
For years I’ve been writing about why energetic literacy is an essential skill for us, living now, and very attainable for all of us who wish to learn it.
In case you’re wondering Why Read Auras? — you might find that blog post for inspiring.
One paragraph at a time, I shared a very new model of how energetic literacy can develop. For years I had been describing just three stages of energetic literacy (aura reading). Then I decided to fit into this model some more advanced skills that I’ve been using to help clients. In some cases, I have taught some of them to RES professionals as well.
So all this is at the leading edge of this rapidly growing field.
Well, DAVID has created a beautiful flowchart that you may find helpful for understanding these 15 stages of energetic literacy and the sequence in which they develop. That’s to say, as I understand these aura reading skills and teach them, all part of the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses®.CONTINUE READING →
I fell in love with Shalonda Holt the day I read about her in the Washington Post Magazine. What a force of nature!
Shalonda Holt was born on a bathroom floor, to a 17-year-old mother who had kept the pregnancy a secret — even from her parents. That mother, Rhoda Buckner, later sacrificed everything to raise a stand-up daughter. And did she ever succeed!
Today I’m going to read the aura of the “one woman powerhouse.” I hope she reads it. Perhaps indirectly the insights will help her to bear the shameful “micro-aggressions — little paper cuts every day” that happen at her suburban school in Maryland, where the African-American biology teacher helps to educate a suburban school in diversity as well as biology.
Of course, I don’t know yet what I’ll find when I research Shalonda Holt’s aura. I just have a hunch that it will impress me… even more than what I read in that “Teacher of the Year” magazine profile. CONTINUE READING →
I’ve had a lot of occasion to ponder the complexities, even the ethics, of making public such readings — having done over 1,000 media interviews. My strangest experience was reading auras for a big newspaper in Lithuania. Before an important election!
The newspaper withheld the interview until AFTER the election, publishing it only when the results had been decided. You know, so that my comments wouldn’t influence voters by bringing insights into the character of these politicians.
Maybe there’s a better way to ponder ethics. What is a responsible way to use aura readings, face readings, or Skilled Empath Merges in order to inform how you vote? CONTINUE READING →
