New Age Leftover Collection. Part 3. A Wake-Up Call.

New Age Leftover Collection
New Age Leftover Collection. Let’s carry forward the promise of Post-New-Age.

New Age Leftover Collection — you may read today’s post with a grim fascination. Because it’s a cautionary set of observations. Yet this is also a hopeful post for all of us who wish to carry forward the promise of New Age.

All of this has been prompted, as you may know, from a certain unofficial experiment in time-lapse encounters. Via the Pathways Mind-Body-Spirit Expo. Lovingly presented every six months, supporting a group of dedicated, long-term, New Agers. Arguably the region’s best.

Might you or your loved ones still live New Age? But our entire planet has shifted into The Age of Awakening. Although New Agers win loyalty points, and perseverance plaudits, hello! Now’s the time to learn some new tricks.

Please tell these so-spiritual people, “Sure you can learn how to live Post-New Age. And thrive in the process.”


Announcing a Pathways Magazine Column on Energetic Literacy

Ready for a sweet announcement, Blog-Buddies? Today it’s official that I will be writing a quarterly column in Pathways Magazine on Energetic Literacy.

Pathways is not just a plump, informative magazine in the metro Washington, D.C. region. It is a big deal in mind-body-spirit in America.

Back when I turned pro as a face reader, in 1986, Pathways used to carry a list of “Sister publications” nationwide. These were other free giveaway publications, with local and national news of New Age. All were paid for by advertisers, with articles to educate and inspire readers.

As part of the steady PR-type work I did, back then, I contacted them all, aiming to write articles about face reading. Over the years, I repeated this experiment. And over the years, those other mind-body-spirit publications pretty much faded away. Pathways remained, steady as the Washington Monument.

This particular magazine has been in print continuously since 1979. I don’t think any other magazine in the country can rival that record.

Or that quality. Including other New Age magazines where I have published articles over the years.

What has impressed me most, apart from the longevity? CONTINUE READING

Arlene, the Groovy Psychiatrist, on the promise of Energy Spirituality

Undercover psychiatrist “Arlene” starts talking about Energy Spirituality, pot, and other topics.

Rose: Greetings to you, Arlene the Groovy Psychiatrist, and greetings to all you blog-buddies who are listening to the recording that we’re making. Funnily enough, we’re making this recording on the 14th of July, 2011, and meanwhile this is a part of a contest that was originally posted at my blog on January 10th, 2011. 

So, would you like to introduce yourself, Arlene, apart from my mentioning that this is not your real name but that you are being given cover as someone interested in the relatively new, possibly controversial field of energy spirituality as well as being a psychiatrist, what do you want people to know about you?

Arlene: Well I’m in my last year of training of my psychiatry residency at an academic medical center. I’ve known you for several years now, I’ve lost count of how many years, and I do follow your blog quite regularly.

Rose: And just for the sake of those who listen, would you explain: Could a resident be a doctor? What is a resident?

Arlene: Oh, yes. So a resident is someone who has gone to college, so they usually have 4 years of college education, and then they have gone to medical school, so they have 4 years of medical education, and then during their last year of medical school they decide, you know, what area they want to specialize in. That’s when people start to sort of identify with do I want to become a surgeon, or do I want to become a pediatrician, do I want to become a cardiologist?

So I decided to go into psychiatry, so during my last year of medical school I applied for a psychiatry residency, which is a 4-year residency. So I have just finished 3 full years of psychiatry training, and I’m just starting my 4th year, which is my last year.

Rose: And then they can set you loose on anybody, right?

Arlene: And then if I graduate from the program I would be eligible to practice general adult psychiatry, but I’ll probably actually do more training, and do a fellowship on top of my adult training, so I’m not quite done yet.

Rose: It’s exciting. So, thank you so much for responding to questions here, and I will just mention where I am coming from in asking you these questions and starting this original contest, and that is that there are three different energy modalities that are part of the leading edge of mind-body- CONTINUE READING

Who is in charge, you or your guides?

Exploring a very personal choice

This blog is service-oriented, as in existing to help YOU, my Blog-Buddies.

  • Sometimes I entertain you (or even attempt to shed political insight) by sharing face readings, aura readings, empath merges of people in the news.
  • Sometimes I educate you about empath empowerment or energetic literacy, the emerging skills of this third millennium.
  • Aura healing is another main category, as you can see from our CATEGORIES column.

All these topics can be considered controversial, given mainstream culture. Occasionally I venture into topics that are not only counter-culture but really, really personal. Today is one of those explorations. So I want to give a vital disclaimer right at the outset. CONTINUE READING

More Requirements for Permanent Energy Healing

Let’s continue our consumer-smarts exploration about what it really takes for successful energy healing. You could also call this “Permanently moving out STUFF” or doing professional-quality spiritual healing or emotional healing.

I’m not going to include physical healing where energy is involved. Except to say this:

Many of my clients and students ARE physical healers, whether massage therapists or bodyworkers or Reiki healers or practitioners of Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine or Janet Mentgen’s Healing Touch or students at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing or acupuncturists or chiropractors.

And THEY tell me how exhausting it can be for them, doing energy healing where the focus is physical. Because many clients just come to be fixed. They must be fixed again and again. CONTINUE READING

How easy is it to receive PERMANENT healing?

rose rosetree, spiritual healingNearly three weeks into the new year, what’s with those New Year’s Resolutions?

When it’s relatively easy to keep them, your cherished choice can be accomplished by the sheer force of your will. If you’re wavering, consider the possibility that you need more than will. You might need healing.

These days, more people than ever are involved in holistic healing. More of us are do-it-yourselfers. Both these trends are exciting. Yet many would-be healers are confused about how to do healing, whether emotional, spiritual, or physical. CONTINUE READING

Aura Reading Record…. and Reality

aura reading babyHello, Guiness Book of World Records. If only they found Aura Reading as fascinating as Mr. C. Poovendran’s yoga marathon of 28 hours and 1019 asanas. I set an Aura Reading record in Japan, anyway.

Okay, an Aura Reading record for VOICE, anyway. CONTINUE READING

Funny Thing About Superbowl Superstars


“It’s a funny thing about those quarterbacks” my husband told me. I had just told him about my upcoming face reading profile for Link.

“The quarterbacks for the Superbowl couldn’t be more different. One dates a supermodel and lives in high society. The other is salt-of-the earth, more like Gomer Pyle.”

Where in an aura would you look to find out which was which? I chose the following databanks. My goal wasn’t to do a woo-woo version of “Pin the tail on the donkey.”

I was interested more in character, gifts of the soul… all those qualities about “Who does this person be?” CONTINUE READING
