Kurt Cobain lives cheerfully among the stoners. His poster proclaims it. You can blow it up if you dare, to read along with me, by our usual method of click and copy and drag at the corners. But, as I explain later, I hope that you won’t.
Our 8th day of Christmas is about reading people who take drugs. The late grunge singer makes a fine poster child, as suggested (directly and indirectly) by two of our Blog-Buddies.
MiWi requested that I read him, and Ryan commented, “I have been wondering for a long time how to perceive drug usage when reading a persons aura. Yesterday I realized that something had recently ‘clicked’ for me. You are right, Rose, that drugs really screw up a persons third eye.”
Ryan is one of our blog’s very most accomplished readers of Deeper Perception. Ryan, you are right, too. Drugs aren’t glamorous, not to an aura reader. They really do mess with a person’s third eye, and that’s just the start.
HOW TO FIND DRUGS WITH BODY LANGUAGE
Body language has its uses, and one of them is to help reveal a substance abuse problem. Get ready to laugh at how obvious this can be:
It’s a problem when someone needs to wear sunglasses while inside a room.
Sunglasses or not, beware if you see bloodshot eyes, tripped-out eye gaze, dilated pupils etc. Beware of what? For one thing, you would definitely avoid casually reading an aura of someone who might take drugs because you will borrow some of that person’s auric discombobulation. This is not “a contact high.” It’s more like “a contact ouch.”
No aura reader is obligated to move deeply into another person’s experience of acute dysfunction. It isn’t good for you. And if you happen to be wired as an empath, that fortunate 1 in 20 people who will take on other people’s stuff unless you have taken the precaution of turning your gifts OFF, trust me. You really don’t need to go there.
Body language is different. It is Deeper Perception with training wheels. You won’t go nearly as fast or as far as you would with face reading, aura reading, or empath merges. Still, you are moving towards that deeper direction.
And here’s my first official hint about the book I am publishing in 2008: It’s called Read People Deeper: Body Language + Face Reading + Auras. One of the 50 categories in this book explains a variety of ways you can tell if a friend or business associate has a problem with substance abuse. (I will get back to editing that book, and otherwise preparing for publication, after our 12 Days of Christmas.)
Body language provides one more good clue to being under the influence: Exaggeration.
- It could be an ultra-careful walk or bigger-than-normal-life striding.
- The same goes for gestures.
- Exaggeration could show in speech that is slowed down or extra-precise.
- Otherwise, words could be slurred, sloppy, less confident than normal.
- Volume of voice could be exaggeratedly soft or loud.
- Then, of course, you may find exaggeration in the social presentation of self, a.k.a., clothing. Here you’ll find Kurt Cobain is wearing one item of clothing that is just a tad larger than normal.
And you thought Cobain just wore those enormous shades because of being a performer? Hey, he could have worn clown shoes. But unless he was a professional clown, that exaggerated sartorial display would mean Warning: Possible Substance Abuse Here.
HOW TO FIND DRUGS BY READING AURAS
To an aura reader, drug use sticks out like the proverbial sore thumb. Long-term use shows; so does the short-term auric fuzz out of a mere one-time high. When hired to do readings at parties, I sometimes read auras rather than faces, but I won’t do this for someone who’s under the influence of recreational chemicals.
Keep in mind that just because you can read auras doesn’t mean that you’d be wise to do it constantly. Every student I teach learns how to turn their gifts off or on. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is not to move in and out reading auras at whim all day long.
Wherever I’ve traveled this year to teach: England, Japan, metro D.C., and that far-out country called “Massachusetts,” I have met people who mistook “being spiritual” for reading auras everywhere, or trying to. Better never to read them at all than to do this to yourself. One of many reasons is you guessed it — it’s a big deal to make contact with the aura of someone on drugs.
Of course you can learn aura reading techniques. I’d be glad to teach you, and my online Aura Reading Workshop Free Intro is a great opportunity. However you learn, choose a method that makes you more sane, not less. That is what I offer.
Now that I’ve gone through the necessary warnings, two chakra databanks are the tip-offs to drug use, and I’ll read them below for the lead singer of Nirvana.
Root Chakra Databank for Relationship to Objective Reality
It’s cracked. He’s either here or there. Alas, Cobain would so much rather be there than here. The horror of being “here” is enough to make an empath’s skin crawl. Why? Here are two clues from the research I have done on many drug takers:
- Recreational drugs have physiological side effects that are very damaging, making it uncomfortable to be “normal.” (Hence the addiction cycle.)
- Non-prescription drugs open up gates from one auric body or another to move into an astral-level experience. When coming back into regular consciousness afterwards, a person’s awareness must retraces steps, which can involve going back through a slimy, disgusting level of lower-astral functioning. (This, unfortunately, is Cobain’s plight at the time of this photo.)
Third Eye Chakra Databank for Adjusting to Human Life
Reading auras here you could become a connoisseur of what different drugs do. Personally, I have chosen not to become this kind of expert. I distinguish just these types:
- Other (including heroin, cocaine, etc.)
Welcome to the world of “other.” Cobain had a well documented heroin addiction. Here’s how it feels to me:
He lives in a thrilling cartoon-like world where flesh-and-blood boundaries disappear, where you merge and shift with people. Sometimes it happens at will, during the good part of being high. Sometimes you are yanked around, which you accept as part of the price you must pay for the good times. Sanity isn’t the benefit.
Cobain is visiting the mysterious places, the places between the musical notes. It’s like walking down the sidewalk and falling into a crack; you could spend hours there; it could be delicious; it could be a nightmare; it could be a nightingale; but the adventuring is the point, and it makes you an artist. You think.
HOW TO COPE
Okay, you have found that someone in your life is experimenting. Let’s say you are someone who chooses to use Deeper Perception. You’re someone who wishes to evolve into living with higher, more stable, states of consciousness and do it naturally. What do you do about that artist-adventurer who chooses the lifestyle of taking drugs?
- Avoid the person, if possible. This is easy to do with a new relationship, like a date.
- If you have a continued but not close relationship, minimize contact. For instance, I have done radio interviews with people who take drugs. Soon as I realized this was the case, I turned my empathic circuits all the way off, using consciousness. And then I had the best conversation I could, no looking back.
- If the person is close to you, have a conversation, as appropriate. Ask about what is happening. Say you have noticed something. Of course, if that person is your child, make this a very big conversation. I wish every parent today could learn to read auras, of for no other reason than early intervention.
Kurt Cobain has been hailed as the spokesman for Generation X. I never heard him perform live. I have, however, heard a spokesman for my generation, the Baby Boomers. I saw Jimi Hendrix, and he was magnificent. He won a place in my heart just as Cobain did for the hearts of his fans.
Reading people can bring you joy. But it also can bring self-protection. Deeper Perception will tell if someone is taking drugs. It could save your heart, maybe save your life. There is nothing glamorous about the aura of somebody high on alcohol or drugs. Call it a false Nirvana.
