Deeper Perception Made Practical

Aura Reading in America’s New Age


Annette Bening Aura Reading


The elephant has left the living room. Even without Aura Reading you can feel it, but — as with so many situations in life — Aura Reading adds the most delicious relish.

With the election of our first African-American president, something in our collective consciousness has changed. Even the stodgy Washington Post carried a quote (from California, where else?) that now there is a “new aura” in America.


The same life-long gift set you can use for Aura Reading sneaks into your perception on the surface of life. Obama’s election has eased racial tensions for most Americans more than any single event in our history. Even on the surface of life, maybe you’ve noticed this, courtesy of your personal gift set for Aura Reading. (You could call this “free aura reading” or “deeper perception without needing much by way of technique.”)

  • Are you Clairaudient as one of your gifts for Aura Reading? Then maybe you have heard America’s collective sigh of relief. We have moved away from old prejudice and limitation. Maybe, too, you have heard a different undertone to conversations between black and white and the many ethnic mixtures in our land.
  • Are you Clairvoyant as one of your gifts for Aura Reading? Maybe you see a softening of the faces of your minority-born neighbors and friends — or your own face — not mere expression but, rather, an overall decrease in tension. It takes a lot of effort to carry interpersonal walls and old hatreds, less evolved states of believing in racial superiority, or the need to create victims. You won’t see all of that gone, due to the election, but the collective shift is truly heart-melting.
  • Are you Clairsentient as one of your gifts for Aura Reading? Then maybe the very quality of handshakes have changed between you and other Americans.

Similarly, you may have noticed other surface-level changes, picked up through the Aura Reading gifts I call Analytical Awareness, Holistic Knowing, Gustatory Giftedness, Physical Empath Gifts, Emotional Empath Gifts, Truth Knowledge and Psychic Knowing.


It would be great, historic fun to have you add comments to this post about what you have observed.

I’ll start, of course. The main thing I have noticed relates to the Aura Reading gift of Clairaudience.

Demographically I am considered part of the “white” category. I have friendships with people in the “black” category for whom race hasn’t been an issue. But I also have acquaintances and neighbors where it has always been an underlying issue, like the proverbial elephant in the room. Right from the first hello, in these relationships, I have heard variations on this theme:

“You’re prejudiced. You and the other whites are so prejudiced, and you have hurt me more than you will ever know. Don’t think I don’t know how you really feel about me, whatever words you say. And don’t think I’ll ever forgive you.”

It’s a weird position to be in because you can’t verbally counter an argument that you know about only because… you’re eavesdropping with deeper perception.

Well, the day after the election, I started hearing the most wonderful contrast. That dispiriting mental and emotional static simply wasn’t there. No longer was I presumed to be a suspect in a crime that I hadn’t, personally, committed. My brothers and sisters and I could now talk, simply talk.


Like you, perhaps, I stayed up watching TV coverage during and after the victory speech of our new president, Barack Obama. His speech, and aura, were magnificent.

Senator McCain’s concession speech was his finest hour. The old John McCain was back, no longer playing Karl Rove-style politics. I really did admire him.

And then the crowds, one joy-filled aura after another!

It was so touching, catching Oprah Winfrey’s face peeking out from the crowd, with a vulnerability and wonder I had never seen in her before. Her personal role as a King Maker wasn’t in evidence, just the purity of heart that is her single greatest talent.

But my favorite sight was of the Rev. Jesse Jackson. That proud man, weeping.

Jackson hadn’t exactly supported Obama from Day One, yet you may know that Jackson has given his life to using his considerable political talents to heal America’s racial divide. And here he was, at this historic time, a winner despite everything.

In his honor, here is a brief Aura Reading of Jesse Jackson on Election Night.

Incidentally, the photo  being read is the TV image of Jackson at the big street party in Chicago where Obama gave his victory speech. I couldn’t find that image in a reasonable amount of search time. But maybe you, watching that night, felt it burn into your consciousness, as happened with me.

Note: Over time, links can go bad. And legally I don’t have the rights to show celebrity photos, so I can’t display them here other than providing links. But you can easily go over to Google, type in the person’s name and the blog post date, then search on images.

  • Root Chakra Databank for Sense of Self as a Black Man

Shudders of relief move through the Reverend. This databank is a complex one for him, riddled with scar tissue, sacrifice, hopes, fears, and (largely under-appreciated) work on behalf of his country.

Imagine a cyclist who rides on behalf of others as well as himself. Racing uphill for miles, he has been giving the journey every bit of strength he has, to the point where he’s nearly gone numb. Now, finally, finally, he has reached the top of that steep climb.

Finally he can begin to let go. Even to coast! To see the view and know how far he has come!

  • High Heart Chakra Databank for Soul Expression as a Black Man

Divine connection has never been stronger in Jesse Jackson’s lifetime than it is, right in this minute. The grace of God pours in, thick and stinging and golden as honey. And for Jackson, whose political aspirations are not prominently on display, there still is the voice of God saying the victory is his, too, and “Well done.”

This part of the Aura Reading on Rev. Jackson is a reminder that Obama’s victory was a tribute to all the loving people who, one way or another, have been part of the soul group working to bring racial justice to the world. Jackson, having given more than most of us, has also received more… including right in this moment.

  • Heart Chakra Databank for Forgiveness 

Compassion for himself is the main forgiveness experience, in that moment of victory.

Jesse Jackson is no sentimentalist, especially about his life. In that heart chakra, there’s scant attention to how hard he has struggled or how many times he has had to pick himself back up and start over. Yet in this moment, I find a most welcome healing, where — to the extent he has blamed himself for not personally managing to heal all of America’s dismal racial patterns — Jesse Jackson finally forgives himself.

For the Rev. Jesse Jackson, or you, or me, being hard on oneself is understandable, if not quite fair: When we take on a huge project here at Earth School, of course, we will tend to gauge our success in terms of that project, suffering because of what is left undone rather than praising our accomplishments, however great.

It brings relief when we choose to remember how hard we have strived, regardless of the degree to which worldly success measures up to our dreams.

On a miracle night like November 4, 2008, when a great dream comes true, each of us can open up spiritually to savor the victory. Each of us can feel a connection to grace that transcends mere relief. Jesse Jackson did in his way. I did in my way. And in your own sacred way, I hope you do, too.

    Before I even read the part of the post about JJ, I must respond to the first part of this post:

    OMG!! I was going to email you or post on this very topic! In the past few days, I have felt a shift within ME and didn’t know if it was only personal or if it was collective. The way I felt the change is through my sense of inner feeling and knowing—I feel and know that invisible inner workings are going way more smoothly. It is as if I have been living in a dense atmosphere, but suddenly gravity became lighter and everything functions smoother and things work together more easily. I comically thought, what if the spirit world had been using all its effort on something BIG and now can give us little people their attention and help?

    I am really happy to see that others sense this shift; it is nothing short of incredible! Perhaps more than just chalking it up to a cause from outside of ourselves, that means it is coming from within us–the people here on earth.

    So beautifully put, LISAW. It is coming from those of us evolving here!

    I am so glad that you mentioned the picture of Rev. Jackson crying. I was moved by the image–I remember how hard he worked for equality (Rainbow Coalition) and how much in the public eye he once was. If I remember correctly, he ran in the primaries for President some time back, so I’m not surprised how strong a connection to the Divine that he felt that evening. When you think about it, HE has been working for this moment (while not for the Obama candidacy itself) longer than Obama.

    Thank you for the beautiful post and aura reading, Rose. I wept repeatedly on election night and the intensity of the energy was palpable. I was feeling particularly sensitive and one aspect of my response surprised me and was also fascinating to experience.

    Since my mother died in July, my grieving has bubbled up in layers and has included older grief I didn’t know was still there. What bubbled up for me amidst my sense of relief, awe, pride and joy was a clear thread of grief related to dealing with what I’ll describe as the harsh and dissonant energy of the Bush years. It was like I’d adapted to that energy somehow, had developed coping mechanisms, and all of a sudden there it was, like the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard, to be released. I hadn’t even realized the impact that had been having on me till I felt this wave of grief release it. I felt it all quite viscerally.

    Every day this week I’ve taken in a bit more of the beauty of this experience and I am thrilled and delighted and inspired.

    Hi, I have a question, really, I was trying to see my aura (I think I’m on the right path) while holding a petalite chrystal and I saw 3 faces behind me. Is this a normal occurance?

    PEG, it is wonderful that you are experimenting with aura reading. Before you ask further questions, I’m going to request that you learn even a little bit about what I teach, because trying to see auras while holding a crystal is not really it.

    Might I suggest you go to my website, and read the FAQs about Aura Reading there?

    I’m sure you can appreciate that, as a professional teacher in this field, I do not comment on results from techniques that I do not teach!
