Today’s post is a follow-up to yesterday’s face reading of Valerie Plame Wilson.
Let’s start with an aura level ability common to many spies. They are experts at sending out highly effective facades. Which is your first reaction, seeing Plame on her book cover?
- Honest, candid, and open
- Sophisticated but sunny and inwardly uncomplicated
- All of the above
Yes, I think she sends out all three sets of facade, and all but the first is false.
Personally, I have enormous sympathy with Valerie Plame. No spy, working for her country, should be publicly outed, or receive death threats. Although I haven’t read her book yet, what she and her husband have suffered has been appalling. And don’t even get me started on the Bush administration
However noble the cause, however, every spy pays a high price inwardly. Yes, every spy. Here are my most poignant findings about the aura of Valerie Plame.
Root Chakra Databank for Version of Reality
Courage is a gift of Plame’s soul. She needs it. Fear abounds. Much of her life experience is polarized, seen as a struggle between good and bad forces. I’m not saying “paranoid,” more “stuck in a movie like the old Westerns.”
Root Chakra Databank for Risk Taking
Living on the edge brings excitement to life. Many people enjoy their risks vicariously, watching James Bond movies or the like. To feel most alive, Plame must personally be in the action.
Heart Chakra Databank for Connecting to Others Emotionally
Executive ability, that’s the most polite way to put this gift of her soul. With rare exceptions, such as loved family members, an inner calculation is constantly made. “What is this person good for?” Typically, relationships are assessed more than felt.
Throat Chakra Databank for Verbal Integrity
Sweetness is a gift of Plame’s soul, but long-term vigilance has left its mark. She constantly and minutely monitors her speech, doing a kind of simultaneous translation of her every word. This is one of the universal spy characteristics.
Third Eye Chakra Databank for Spiritual Integrity
Connection to spiritual source is strong. According to her lights, she’s working for God. So if you’re looking for an idealistic spy, you will find one in Plame.
Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Power Integrity
Strength lies here, plus unabashed power.
Would the former covert operative use that strength to do unpleasant things? In a heartbeat.
And would Plame be willing to promise one thing and do another? Can a duck both swim and walk? This is another signature spy quality. I can’t vouch for it in ducks who are spies but I’ve sure found it in the human ones.
Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Intellectual Growth
Here is the big test for spies. It shows up every time: The most organized minds you’ve ever met, with compartments for every kind of information and relationship. Levels of secrecy! Degrees of denial!
Nobody else thinks like a spy. You may think you have figured out the plot in a Graham Greene novel. But being a spy is no fictional exercise. It brings pain and distortion to the spy’s aura. Like any choice to do dirty work, however nobly undertaken, there will be consequences.
Blog-buds, comment away with your observations about the great Valerie Plame. Or, for a fascinating exercise, read the same databanks in a photo of former spy and superb novelist Graham Greene.
