Yet Rev. Rick Warren is immensely famous. In Christian circles he’s a household name, mega-successful as a megachurch pastor; also famous as the author of the megabestseller, “The Purpose Driven Life.”
Commenting at that aura reading, ROSANNA TUFTS asked a great question: “Holy smokes, the largest [Chakra databank you read] is 10 inches — at least out of the ones you profiled here? You’ll have to do a follow-up, for contrast: which databanks really ARE ‘large and in charge’?”
In her professional life, Rachel Dolezal has chosen to advance the lives of African-Americans.
Her son has told her, “Mom, racially you’re human and culturally you’re black.” Rachel Dolezal reports that, as a girl, she drew self-portraits “using brown crayon, rather than peach, to portray herself, and drawing herself with black, curly hair, not the straight, blonde locks she grew up with.”
While her indignant mother has told the media, “She did not ever refer to herself or draw pictures (like the described self-portraits) or do anything that indicated she thought she was black.”
Seems to me “ever” is a pretty impressive word for a person to use when describing somebody else’s behavior. I wonder if this mother, Ruthanne Dolezal, also happens to be omnipresent and omniscient.
Certainly it’s indisputible that, unlike Caitlin Jenner, Rachel Dolezal has not sought the spotlight. Yet here it is anyway, and many people have expressed rage, outrage, indignation, and more.
Is she crazy, as her biological parents proclaim to the media? Or is she no more crazy than any transgendered person or cross-dresser, or person who speaks in an accent that doesn’t come from how she was raised? Is it crazy to be a social climber? Or a political activist for a group into which you haven’t been born?
Is it deeply dishonest to exchange a name that doesn’t fit you for a name that aligns with your soul?

Any questions about whether aura reading CAN protect you in a particular area of life of concern to you now.
“He is finally happy” read the caption for Bruce Jenner’s cover photo on People Magazine. And now she’s oh-so happy again. As Caitlyn.
Certainly Caitlyn seems to be springing from one peak experience of delight to the next. Unquestionably all this publicity is great for her career, as she prepares the first promo for her eight-part docuseries, I Am Cait, premiering July 26 on E!. “I’m the new normal,” she informs us.
I can only imagine how William Makepeace Thackeray, author of “Vanity Fair” may be lurching around in his grave. (Hint for those of you who haven’t read the classic novel: “Vanity Fair” is not meant as a term to evoke admiration.)
In her storied interview for Vanity Fair, Caitlyn tells the public about all her emotions doing the photo shoot, concluding:
“That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘that a boy, Bruce,’ pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.”
On the face of things, surface reality, this strikes me as crazy disingenuous. The woman has made her personal story into something more. Perhaps she is nobly educating humanity. Perhaps she is capitalizing on a trend. Perhaps she enjoys smashing people’s boundaries. Maybe it’s just an Olympic-style attempt to break records for TMI.
Personally I applaud the right of any person to identify and express sexually in the way that is congruent. These days I’ve been reading “The Days of Anna Madrigal” by Armistead Maupin. Loving it. So far I’ve read or seen televised just about every book he has published.
Armistead is a compelling writer, creating great stories and characters who have great emotional nuance and honesty. That quality of honesty is what I prize; Armistead Maupin educates me in ways that expand my humanity.
I’ve also been educated by people I’ve personally known who have courageously chosen to express their gender identity in traditionally unconventional ways. It’s important for collective consciousness that we humans come to understand and accept the range of human experience. I’m all for it.
But this latest display by Ms. Jenner, I don’t make me feel educated but manipulated. I even feel repulsed, as if something about him is terribly off kilter. Still I’ll put all that aside here and just use my skills for energetic literacy. CONTINUE READING →
Energy healing skills — you’ve come to the right place for that today! Because this seven-part series about psychic coercion concludes here. It has been all about helping you to gain important skills for self-healing.
Understandably, many of you Blog-Buddies have been sidetracked in the past. You didn’t understand what psychic coercion really is.
Yet this blog can give you something I didn’t have time to do in a book. (Which is already jam-packed with healing techniques, dedicated skill sets.) Hereyou can learn more about the practical bits. That’s essential for developing skills, knowing when to use which healing technique, when to stop worrying unnecessarily, etc.
Cult mind control is such an ugly topic. And often a taboo topic. Have you noticed?
Many of the people you know may be cult sleepwalkers. Ironically these neighbors, family members, work associates would be shocked, shocked! at the very idea that they might be considered cult followers. Yet Fundamentalists and evangelicals are often in cults. Spiritual seekers, idealists of all kinds, can move into cults.
I have helped clients to fully exit meditation cults, New Age cults, Christian cults, Buddhist cults, Tapping cults, other cults associated with healing, and more.
This complements work done in Energy Spirituality to help clients move out of spiritual addiction (and to avoid the virusey problems some are having with “extreme spiritual addiction”).
Since we have been considering psychic coercion, it only seems fair to address this concern of cult activity possibly hurting other people energetically. Address this concern in plain English. Not whispering or hinting about it.
What if you just stumbled upon today’s blog post and don’t know what on earth I mean by “Psychic coercion”?
