Aura Reading Tom Hanks for Inspiration

Tom Hanks, ready for his aura reading
Tom Hanks, ready for his aura reading

Well I, for one, am so glad to be nearing completion of our 6-part series about how to deal with difficult people, with insight from reading people deeper. That series began here.

Important and practical? Sure. Yet the topic isn’t exactly pure joy.

And hey, today is our first day of spring (in this hemisphere) (that didn’t begin with an eclipse).

I could stand some inspiration, and maybe you can too. Besides, who doesn’t really, really like Tom Hanks? Beloved as the A-lister is, maybe he hasn’t always felt that comfortable being Tom. Not so comfortable as he clearly is now. Let’s find out. CONTINUE READING

Who, exactly, is in charge of your talent?

Human life is complicated enough without believing that you must actively pursue every possible talent
Human life is complicated enough without believing that you must actively pursue every possible talent

Talent is not destiny. It’s a resource.

Talent is not a cosmic SHOULDING. Talent adds to the beautiful scope of your free will.

Today let’s consider your relationship to something so personal and, mostly, beautiful. Because you do have talent.

That’s great. Just don’t make yourself a human sacrifice on the altar of your talent. Misuse of free will can cause talent to turn distracting or even ugly. For example… CONTINUE READING

Ooh, about that new photo of Rose Rosetree

Rose Rosetree, so loooooooong ago, in 2013
Rose Rosetree, so loooooooong ago, in 2013

Today a sweet email came from my friend “JOE”. Tucked inside several paragraphs was this:

“I also wanted to mention about your new picture. I saw the change but wasn’t sure what to say. I like the smile but there seems to be a lot of fatigue in it, to me. That may be off-base but it surprised me you’d put a picture of yourself up that wasn’t your usual vibrant self, even if it was a lovely scarf.   ;-)”

That courage, and tact, from my friend make me love him more than ever.

I’m glad JOE spoke up. It occurred to me that some of you Blog-Buddies may have had a similar reaction. Two others of you commented, on blog or off, since I recently changed out the old photo that was here, a photograph taken so loooooooooong ago, in 2013.

What do you think when you compare that small blog-sized version with….

Paula Lawley joins my Enlightenment Life List

May Enlightenment flower within you
May Enlightenment flower within you

It’s simple, really. PAULA LAWLEY is a mother, active in her Christian church, helping her son to move towards becoming an Eagle Scout.

Professionally PAULA is equally a powerhouse. She works in technology, communications, media, and marketing.

No current photo is available, but I just got off the phone with her. At the end of our session, I used my procedure for Enlightenment Validation.

And now she is #19 at the list of folks in this informal Energy Spirituality community who have moved into Enlightenment. On the regular Enlightenment Life List, she is right up there. Take a look!

Paula’s non-dramatic path to Enlightenment

Although not very active at this blog (so far, anyway), PAULA has done sessions with me off and on since 2010. I’m so glad she attended that talk I gave at the Reston Public Library. CONTINUE READING

Celebrating a certain kind of shyness

When was the last time you thought about the mystical implications of lace?
When was the last time you thought about the mystical implications of lace?

Shyness? What, in this age, when we’re all so connected?

Shyness, Blog-Buddies, in the society where you live?

Sure, it still happens. And when that shyness concerns one’s relationship with Spiritual Source, it’s especially beautiful.

Shyness is one of the innumerable lovely ways to be in that relationship.

This morning I responded to gorgeous Comment 13 by AMANDA at a post dedicated to her, Ananda for AMANDA, newest member of our Enlightenment Life List. A few little comments splashed onto my computer screen.

Afterwards, somehow I found my self going back and forth between the kitchen and my office. Having some bites of breakfast. Then “Gotta, gotta” go upstairs to the pink office to pop in a comment. Back down the stairs, smiling, for more food.

In your honor, AMANDA, and in honor of all of us who have experienced at least a bit of shyness…. CONTINUE READING

Ananda for AMANDA, newest member of our Enlightenment Life List

Enlightenment Coach Rose is so proud of AMANDA FLOOD

Ananda” means bliss, the sort of Divine-perfumed happiness that each of us can experience from time to time.

When that ananda becomes available always, like the background on this screen you are reading, very likely you have moved into Enlightenment.

Such is the case for AMANDA FLOOD, a member of this informal Energy Spirituality community. For years she has been moving forward rapidly on her path of personal development. Since I’m Facebook friends with AMANDA, I get to see the photographs she posts from time to time.

One stopped me in my tracks. These days I don’t slip-slide into empath merges or other Technique Time; altogether the energetic hygiene around Rose Rosetree is pretty darned good. Still, how can I put this? When I see a person, or photo, sometimes it’s obvious to me — right on the surface of life — that this individual might well be Enlightened.

During Technique Time, I will usually follow up with proper research. Well, that is what I did with that FB photograph of AMANDA. Far as I was concerned, she met all my criteria for including her on my Enlightenment Life List.

But what did SHE think?

On December 1, 2014, I sent her an email. Subsequently we had some back-and-forth. After a bit of diffidence, AMANDA agreed to let me laud her in public.  Now, that’s a laud off my mind. ;-) CONTINUE READING

Five Things I have learned as an Enlightenment Coach

ELAINE, enjoying photography. One more way to play.

Is Enlightenment Coaching about the inner you or the outer you?

RACHEL has asked a great version of this question at our pair of guest posts by new additions to our Enlightenment Life List, KYLIE and ELAINE. I’m going to alternate answers with each of her fine quotes. Then I’ll blurt out something (formerly) rather private: The five most important things I have learned so far as an Enlightenment Coach.

Big disclaimer first. Rose Rosetree does not know everything. What, you knew that already? ;-) I’m just one energy healer who helps with emotional progress and spiritual growth. I never set out to found the system of Rosetree Energy Spirituality but co-created it piece by piece. As for the piece of my work around being an Enlightenment Coach, that is relatively new. In short, I’m still learning. Here I will simply share what I have learned so far. What is Enlightenment Coaching, anyway?

“I don’t get how one person’s Enlightenment is “an inside job,” and they are Enlightened despite life not being how they want it to be…”

Enlightenment for an exuberant creator, a guest post by ELAINE

Elaine Warfield, aura ready for you to explore her particular quality of Enlightenment
Elaine Warfield, with her aura ready for you to explore her particular quality of Enlightenment

Blog-Buddies, I have a theory about ELAINE. Her story joins that of a growing number of Deeper Perception fans who have moved into Enlightenment, including yesterday’s quietly glorious post by KYLIE. All of these folks I know well, and not just from reading their auras.

What one point is notably absent from the letter that ELAINE wrote to me, with permission to publish it here as a guest post? She is one of the most creative people I know: Many art forms and quality every time.

If you can, reach out and friend Elaine Warfield on Facebook. You’ll see photos of little things like this:

  • Hand-painted dance shoes
  • Romance novels that she writes under the pen name of Grace Brannigan
  • The heart (and savvy) to make many of those novels available in special editions that are easy reading for the dyslexic.
  • Barn art she created that draws tourists from miles around
  • Stunning nature photography of the Catskills Mountains
  • And her latest booming business, Exceptional Silks, one-of-a-kind wearable art on silk

So, my theory? Maybe it takes a lot to impress the prolifically busy ELAINE. And maybe, as an Enlightenment Coach, I never mentioned that one way to describe Enlightenment is “Using your full potential in life.” CONTINUE READING

Moving into Enlightenment, the gradual click, a guest post by KYLIE

Kylie, with all-over Enlightenment dazzle in all her chakra databanks
Kylie, with Enlightenment dazzle in all the chakra databanks in her aura

Who is the latest member of our informal online community to move into Enlightenment? It’s that KYLIE who has generously written many a guest post for this blog.

Tonight we had a conversation to validate her state of consciousness. It’s a combination I have developed as an Enlightenment Coach, part Aura Reading Research and part inquiry about certain experiences.

Validation matters on a person’s path to Enlightenment, and path after crossing that threshold.

And yes, from the tips of her toes to the tops of her Enlightenment Rays, that KYLIE has crossed that threshold. Now she walks her human journey in a higher state of consciousness.

Graciously she has allowed me to use her name and even wrote a bit about her initial experience.

And here’s another surprise, everyone…. CONTINUE READING
