Enlightenment Update

Enlightenment update two
Enlightenment update! Rose compares Age of Awakening Enlightenment to Traditional Enlightenment.

Enlightenment update — that’s the purpose of today’s article. Here I’ll summarize my latest findings about two different types of Enlightenment. Inspired by my perspective as Founder of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES).

Have I ever been struggling lately, in my role as an Enlightenment Coach! All the distinctive RES skills converge on discerning these two types of Enlightenment — the Energy READING skills, Energy HEALING skills, Empath Empowerment® Coaching. Plus the background which has specifically prepared me for Enlightenment Coaching.

Within one week, two more folks from the RES community have moved into Enlightenment, bringing the total up to 30. CONTINUE READING

How My Enlightenment Coaching Works. Celebrating BEV, Newest Member of the Enlightenment Life List.

Enlightenment Coaching for Bev, for all who are interested.
Enlightenment Coaching for BEV. Three stories illustrate how this coaching works.

BEV UPSHUR is the latest addition to my Enlightenment Life List. BEV has also gone onto the separate list I maintain for people from this community who have moved into that higher state of consciousness. In her honor, today’s article explores how my Enlightenment Coaching DOES and DOESN’T work.

Whether you call it Householder Enlightenment, spiritual awakening (as an established state of consciousness), Self-Realization, or psychological self-actualization…

This state of consciousness is dawning now. In fact, here’s my favorite way of describing The Age of Awakening:

Now we live in a time when millions of people can move into Enlightenment. And do it as householders!


Aura Reading Victoria Tomasheski, a “Christian” Missionary at an American Public School

Doesn't every good hearted teacher wish to be honest and kind, an inspiration?
Doesn’t every good- hearted teacher wish to be honest and kind, an inspiration?

It’s not every day when a casual look at the headlines in the day’s newspaper makes me angry.

I’m practiced at not letting myself go there, into the Lande of Indignation. But then I was not reading about the newspaper’s usual Places of Hideosity. Nope, today’s read (in the print edition) was captioned, “A mission for Jesus in the public schools.” The reporter was Emma Brown.

Did you know that Victoria Tomasheski is paid by her church to do missionary work in a public school?

Wait, she is paid by an American public school. To. Work. As. A. Teacher.

However, the Christian Educators Association has “empowered” teachers like her to express their faith with new boldness.


Five Things I have learned from Enlightenment Coaching

What happens during Enlightenment Coaching? Which thing (or things) will help you the most to cross the threshold into Householder Enlightenment?

In the short time that I been doing Enlightenment Coaching, I have learned these five things.

Five things, give or take a few.

These little things inspire me. Maybe they will inspire you, too.

Rick Archer interviews Rose Rosetree on Householder Enlightenment

Diane Rehm, an easier interview

What an honor, doing an interview for Rick Archer’s video collection of Enlightened people who can talk a lot. It was so different from the 995 media interviews I had done before. Click here to see it.

By comparison, it was way easier to be interviewed by Diane Rehm or Thom Hartmann or even Steve Doocy; reporters for the L.A. Times, The Seattle Times, The Washington Times, The Washington Post, The Catholic Standard.

It was even easier to be interviewed about Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, and then be spoofed in a segment on “The Colbert Report.” Because those interviews were about face reading, aura reading, or Empath Empowerment skills, not really me, and definitely not about the tender topic of growth of consciousness. 

Granted, Rick and I did discuss these aspects of Deeper Perception. But initially he asked about my personal story.

Awkwardly for me, this was the first interview where I was asked about myself. You’ll see me subdued at first, between figuring out where to look at the webcam and wondering what to tell Rick Archer, who interviews one Enlightened person at a time.

This wasn’t my chance to help people in the usual ways, not this interview for “Buddha at the Gas Pump.”  I was on the spot, doing Enlightenment coaching directly, rather than the usual indirectly. Among other things, it was my first chance to mention “Householder Enlightenment” in an interview.

Hours flew by, nearly three of them. Actually, Rick and I talked for nearly four hours straight. (It was his longest interview to date, he said by the end.)

At Rick’s site, you can see the full interview in one ambitious watch — or download it as a podcast. Alternatively, of course, you can stop and watch different chunks later.

Enlightenment and the Astral, a guest post by JILL

These days I am packing for two weeks in England, sponsored by the College of Psychic Studies in London. Of course, I have been thinking about psychic development. It can be any of these for a seeker:

  1. A skill set
  2. An interest
  3. A hobby
  4. A belief system, even a religion or way of life

For some time, I have recommended doing no more than 30 minutes per day of mind-body-spirit based activities. Each of these possibilities is entirely compatible with that balanced lifestyle on one’s path to Enlightenment. Unless the paranormal becomes a person’s “normal.”

Blog-Buddies, here is a wonderful set of insights from JILL, volunteered on just this very topic. Nice timing there, JILL! CONTINUE READING

How Enlightenment Develops

Five stages of Enlightenment, natural as fingers

My former guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, accomplished some amazing service during his career. One of his greatest contributions, in my opinion, was how he delineated three stages of development related to Enlightenment, plus an initial state about transcendence. To my knowledge, MMY was the first teacher to do so, and I personally think his model was just genius.

Blog-Buddies, in today’s post I would like to carry this attempt further. I’ll describe a developmental model that I have put together, influenced by Maharishi but reflecting decades of experience as a teacher of Energy Spirituality, following decades when I taught his system of Transcendental Meditation.

Whatever model you construct, or adapt, for yourself… aren’t you ready to own such a model? It’s important, this aspect of self-actualization/self-realization/awakening. Perhaps it’s your present. And, certainly, wouldn’t you like it to be your future?

Maharishi’s work was my starting point. Names in the developmental model below are altered by me, as are descriptions of what each stage entails. I have added another step to the mix, the second one. Not quite Enlightenment but a significant milestone on the way… and I ought to know, because I passed this one when writing “Empowered by Empathy.” 😉

Any of you Blog-Buddies familiar with my work as a teacher of face reading/aura reading/skilled empath merge can find this interest in path to Enlightenment right from my first book published by Women’s Intuition Worldwide, “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.”

For 42 years and counting, I have been passionately interested in leading people all the way through this process. Along the way, I have had an idea (not necessarily originating with me, perhaps discussed by Maharishi and TMers) that the last four of these stages can develop concurrently — not sequentially, as Maharishi believed.

Here we go with this brand new model, first time published by me, pinkie first. CONTINUE READING

What is Enlightenment? The 10 most important things.

May Enlightenment flower within you
May Enlightenment flower within you

Announcement, Blog-Buddies. Rose Rosetree does not know everything about Enlightenment.

Oops, you already knew that. You may also know, from reading this blog for a while, that the main topics have been — and will continue to be — energetic literacy (That’s “Deeper Perception” in everyday language) and also Energy Spirituality (a bunch o’ skill sets that I use to permanently remove STUFF, freeing up soul expression).

Most of the posts here are on subjects that you can search, with categories listed on the left column, like empath empowerment; aura reading research; face reading.

Yet, over the years, ygad!, years! of tending this blog like a very loved garden, a theme has developed. Enlightenment.

Recently I have been thinking about the relationship between permanent healing of STUFF, waking up deeper perception, and moving faster on one’s personal path to Enlightenment.

Then, Blog-Buddies, there was a bit of a surprise last week when I discovered that, to my perception, one of our Blog-Buddies, JULIE (a.k.a. “BLAKE”) had shifted into that perfectly natural — although currently rare — state of consciousness called spiritual Enlightenment, or self-actualization, or self-realization.

I was planning to devote the next several posts to doing aura readings and skilled empath merges of some winners of our latest contest. But with this latest, biggest drama so far at this blog, no no!

JULIE, the most recent addition to our Enlightenment Life List — and my first client and student to go on that list — has graciously agreed to an e-interview with systematic questions of an educational nature. Meanwhile, there has been great exuberance elsewhere at this blog with her wonderful answers to questions from you Blog-Buddies.

Given empassioned conversation that propeled the JULIE conversation to our #9 Most Popular Post (See it, renamed, on that rightmost column), hello! I thought it might be useful for this spiritual teacher to provide my latest understanding about what it means, in personal terms, to be spiritually Enlightened. CONTINUE READING

Surprise, Enlightenment!

Every springtime flower is a surprise. An even bigger surprise? Enlighenment!

Enlightenment could be your destiny! When it comes, will Enlightenment surprise you?

Blog-Buddies, are you loving this spring? Gardeners like me nearly drool with delight.

In the spirit of springtime, I’d like to share some of the latest statistics and facts about the fun world of energetic literacy and Energy Spirituality.

Note: Some two years after this original post, a bit of editing is overdue. I praise a website that no longer exists, so I’ll snip that part out and continue with the rest. Or you might just want to skip over to the really exciting breakthrough. Just scroll down to the big red headline.
