Aura Reading Rev. Rick Warren. A Spiritual Perspective on the Supreme Court Decision about Marriage Equality

Today’s Supreme Court decision in favor of same sex marriage is certainly dominating American news today. Coincidentally this morning I was preparing to write a blog post today on a topic like “What is spiritual experience, anyway?”

This was prompted by recent comments at the Empath Empowerment Skills Group on Facebook. We need to lay that groundwork as part of the continuing education there about what it means to become a skilled empath.

I thought this topic would be of interest to all you Blog-Buddies. What IS spiritual experience, anyway?

The timing is so great, here. Nice touch, Universe! Because now I can bring an aura reading perspective to a “Spiritual” cause that may not really be so very spiritual.

Auras show us the truth


Aura Reading Soulful Sam Smith

Here’s a lighthearted treat, some aura reading courtesy of one of the great nominations at our last contest, What Could Possibly Make This Person Tick?

Blog-Buddy SANDRA HAERING nominated Sam Smith because “He sings like an angel, and he seems like such an innocent, sweet person.”

She mentioned being particularly impressed with how he responded when Tom Petty’s people approached his people about the similarity between Smith’s hit “Stay with Me” and Tom Petty’s song “I Won’t Back Down.”

Smith acknowledged that they sound very similar, and even though the similarity was accidental, he now gives Petty credit for writing the track.

That does sound gorgeous, doesn’t it, Blog-Buddies? One of my favorite phrases is “My sacred honor.”

And it sounds, from the surface of life, as though Sam Smith really gets that.

Let’s find out what his aura reveals. :-) CONTINUE READING

Comparison Aura Reading, from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlin Jenner, redy for her aura reading

“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

Stop the Squirmy-Wormy. Why You Can Get Really Good at Aura Reading

June is Aura Reading Month around here, since I’ll be giving the annual Aura Reading Workshop the last weekend of 6-15.

At the very mention of reading auras, so many people react with an instant squirmy-wormy feeling.

Like “I can’t do this.” Or “There’s something icky about this weird thing, auras. I’m not even sure what they are.”

Do I understand that kind of thing? Painfully well. Once upon a time I felt the same way myself.

So let’s take a few minutes with an article meant to rehab your confidence. Just in case that could help you some day with reading auras. Maybe align your confidence, too. Right now.

(You’ll see. Just keep reading with your regular word-deciphering literacy.) CONTINUE READING

Bette Midler is one of the winners of our most recent contest, What Could Possibly Make This Person Tick?

Or should I name ZELDA as the winner? Since it’s her contest entry being given star treatment today. In Comment #36 Zelda wrote:

I’d enjoy learning what makes Bette Midler tick. I’ve always loved her spunk, sass, humor, and enormous talent. She’s an amazing entertainer and is out on tour for the first time in 10 years.

Here’s her website.

Here’s the website for the New York Restoration Project, which she founded. The organization has worked to bring more parks and trees to NY City.

If you have heard or seen this magnificent performer, you know there is nobody else like Bette Midler. But what makes her tick? Bring on the power of face reading! CONTINUE READING

Buh-Bye, Fears about Psychic Coercion. Let’s Get Skills.

You don't need superpowers to vanquish psychic coercion
You don’t need Spiderman superpowers to vanquish psychic coercion

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.

Learning my healing technique for psychic coercion is simple. It’s available to you so easily from the paperback or eBook about Use Your Power of Command for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection.” Really, really easy to learn.

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.) Here you 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.

Because, really, do any of you think that worrying is a skill? ;-) CONTINUE READING

David Letterman, How He Evolved. (Skilled Empath Merges Tell the Inside Story.)

David Letterman, ready for his Skilled Empath Merge
David Letterman, ready for his Skilled Empath Merge

Today’s tribute to David Letterman comes from an unabashed fan. Once this year I even made a one-day pilgrimage to “The City” (as we native New Yorkers call Manhattan) just to be in the audience.

Yes, my husband and I traveled up from Virginia, where we joyfully waited in various lines, met other tourists who had traveled even more ridiculous distances than us. Altogether I felt like an oohey-gooey fan. Just to be part of “The Late Show with David Letterman.” Worth every dollar and every minute!

At the top of today’s post is a public domain photo of David Letterman from 2004, taken while he entertained coalition forces in Baghdad, Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom. David Letterman, a hero of mine for so many reasons: His wit, irreverence, intelligence, humanity.

I have prized David Letterman’s ability to interview in a way that generates human interest (unlike the fawning style of celebrity self-involvement that has become far more prevalent on similar late-night talk shows). Even his “Stupid Pet Tricks” provided human interest, at least to this fan.

Still, I’ll put all that aside as I research the who-you-be of David Letterman from these two contrasting periods in his life.

I’m so curious how he has survived prolonged fame. Has he personally grown from the heart surgery, his one big scandal, fatherhood late in life? All of those very, very human details are public knowledge. Not so, the inner impact. If you’re curious too, keep reading this inside story as only Skilled Empath Merge can tell it.


Can Other People’s Cults Hurt You? More about Psychic Coercion.

Sleepwalking in a cult -- when somebody does that, can it hurt YOU energetically?
Sleepwalking in a cult — when somebody does that, can it hurt YOU energetically?

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”?  If you’re not sure sure, or you wish to learn more about this series of articles, just skip down to the end of today’s article. You might want to take the Psychic Coercion Quiz before reading further in today’s blog post.

Today, at the end of the post, I’ll also include a section with more information about exiting cults from the perspective of Rosetree Energy Spirituality.

Now let’s continue responses to our recent Psychic Coercion Quiz.
