Deeper Perception Made Practical

Spiritual Enlightenment List from Rose Rosetree

Enlightenment Life List

Spiritual Enlightenment Life List — Read this and be inspired!

Spiritual Enlightenment Life List. When I first began this blog post, I never dreamed I’d personally move into Enlightenment. Becoming an Enlightenment Teacher. Or, if you prefer, an Enlightenment Coach. But that has happened.

And all along, I’ve continued to maintain this personal Enlightenment Life List. Mine contains names of people whom I consider to have moved into Enlightenment. Not because they are famous or pretty, talented or otherwise amazing as human beings. Or they “Look like somebody in Enlightenment.”

As the Founder of Energy Spirituality, and a teacher of Energetic Literacy, yes! I finally have officially added the title of “Enlightenment Coach.” Researching Enlightenment in public figures of any kind. Mostly through nominations supplied by people like you.

This post contains my running list, begun on Sunday, July 18, 2010. These posts can help you keep track before nominating:

  1. A YouTube Video Explanation of Why I Maintain this List
  2. Discerning Enlightenment
  3. Enlightenment Nominees
  4. Alphabetical Enlightenment List
  5. Moving into Enlightenment, Helped by Energy Spirituality
  6. And this article might be helpful whether you’re in Enlightenment or simply know somebody who’s in Enlightenment. Enlightenment Etiquette was first published on December 10, 2018.

In years to come, see how many other articles are published about this. Could be fun, since many Energy Spirituality firsts have become very popular topics. Definitely, as more people move into Enlightenment, we need to start thinking about good manners regarding conversation between people in Enlightenment and those who aren’t… yet.

Rose Rosetree’s Spiritual Enlightenment Life List

Big disclaimer: What does it mean when I note that a person’s state of consciousness qualifies as living in Enlightenment? Is it an endorsement of that person’s healing services, meditation techniques, or other work? Definitely not. Use your Post-New-Age consumer smarts. Please!

Also note *** I’ve put an asterisk *** by the names of those on the list I have personally met or talked to by phone. “Darshan” is the traditional name for being in the physical presence of a person who lives in Enlightenment. Being an English speaker, I call it “auric modeling.”

  263. December 13, 2019. Attorney Daniel Goldman representing Democrats in the House of Representatives for the Trump Impeachment Inquiry. (For aura research, I’ve paused the video 3 seconds in.) Crystal clear, and infused with Divine presence, yes, that’s Age of Awakening Enlightenment! Blog-Buddy TRISH nominated him, over at Trump Impeachment Aura Readings.
  264. December 13, 2019. Ambassador William Taylor, one of the stars of the Trump Impeachment Inquiry imo, also goes onto this list. More Age of Awakening Enlightenment! Blog-Buddy ROSANNA TUFTS nominated him, over at Trump Impeachment Aura Readings.
  265. December 27, 2019. New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet. Nominated by ISABELLA CATES in Comment #3625. Wonderful!

  267. January 14, 2020. Extraordinary Great Courses Professor Robert Garland has gone onto this list. Very proud of myself that I used good energy hygiene and didn’t read his aura until I wasn’t studying with him.
  268. January 15, 2020. Famed conductor Michael Tilson-Thomas belongs on my Spiritual Enlightenment List! On he goes.
  269. February 13, 2020. It just in time for Valentine’s Day. Blog-Buddy LIANE recommended Dame Maggie Smith for something different — nominating her for an empath at our Celebrity Empaths Flash Contest. Double win! Smith is both an empath and in Age of Awakening Enlightenment.
  270. February 16, 2020. Historian Robert Caro joins this list of spiritual luminaries, nominated by ISABELLA CATES. Well done, ISABELLA!

Got more candidates for this Enlightenment Life List? As time permits, I’ll do a short aura reading for free of each nominee, just to screen, and will respond with a simple YES or NO.

How to Submit a Nomination to Enlightenment Coach, Rose Rosetree

Here is my open invitation to you Blog-Buddies. Any time you have a serious candidate for this list, you are invited to write one or more brief comments with the following info:

  1. To avoid duplicated research, please check out the list of previous nominees. I’ll only research a nominee one time for this list. (Some exceptions will be made, but at my personal discretion only. Thank you for respecting my time.)
  2. Include, please, the nominee’s name and a one-click link to a clear headshot from a straight angle. Yes, a photo, please. Not a link to a YouTube video. Please, please read this article about how to select an appropriate photograph.
  3. And that means ONLY one photo. Not a page of pictures, etc.
  4. Please summarize WHY you are interested.
  5. One nominee per comment, please. And I’d also appreciate if you’d break up extra-long comments, as in the style of this blog.
  6. Remember, even if your nominee doesn’t make it onto Rose Rosetree’s personal Enlightenment Life List, if that person has been a spiritual inspiration to you, keep that inspiration. A person need not be living in Enlightenment to do great work, be mega-talented as a healer or teacher or anything else. Your nominee could still touch your heart, change your life, even be a saint! As an Enlightenment Coach, I simply aim to help spiritual seekers to aim for standards. Energetic Literacy makes that possible for those of us living now.
  7. Finally, regarding your nomination, I request your patience. It takes more time than you might think to do this research, as does maintaining the blog itself. So I save up comments to this post and then go in and spend the hours required to respond. You might want to check back often and comment at other posts, too.

And What Will I Do with Your Nomination?

Here’s my part of the deal. I’ll research and add that name to my Enlightenment Life List, provided that this person DOES show spiritual Enlightenment.

Plus that name will joyfully be added to an Alphabetized version of this list.

Either way, I will definitely add your nominee’s name to the list of those who have been nominated.

In this Age of Awakening, millions of people can move into Enlightenment, and do it with Age of Awakening Enlightenment. This Enlightenment Coach is dedicated to doing her part to help.

    Thank you!

  3. 3403

    Stellar comments here, OSCAR. And this sequence from you has just moved this blog across the numerical line into 56,000 comments.

    Not a Finish Line. More of a (continued) Beginning Line. Thank you, OSCAR.

    Oscar Manuel says:

    Hi Rose,

    I’d also like to request a check on the current consciousness lifestyle of Elizabeth Gilbert, if it seems to you a reasonable amount of time has lapsed to research her again. (She is #108 on the list currently).

  5. 3405
  6. 3406
    Oscar Manuel says:

    You and Ethan had a recent exchange about “looking like yourself” or not.

    To me, Elizabeth Gilbert does not look like herself anymore.

  7. 3407
    Ethan says:

    Hi Rose, I’d like to nominate Marshall Vian Summers, an American spiritual author and teacher. I’m curious what his consciousness lifestyle is-he claims to be a messenger of divine truth.

  8. 3408

    Blog-Buddies OSCAR and ETHAN, thank you for all these excellent nominations.

    I hope to get to them soon.

  9. 3409

    Now let’s hunker down for some good Enlightenment research, Blog-Buddies. I’m bringing along one more nomination. This one concerns a Brian D. Stephens, who has published, “A Real List of Enlightened Teachers.”

    And, thanks to CHRISTINE, we’ve got a fine photo for researching Brian D. You can see the whole DISCERNMENT JAMBOREE about Enlightenment Validation right here, btw.

  10. 3410

    Playing catch-up, let’s scoot over to a previous page at this popular post.

    Inspiring teacher and writer Jim Rohn is up for research, thanks to WILL’S Comments #3336-3337. For research WILL supplied this video, recommended pausing at 2:01 minutes.

  11. 3411

    Sadly, he’s now in extreme spiritual addiction.

    Shame about that, but c’est la vie de NOW, the early years of the Age of Awakening.

  12. 3412

    Next up, Holistic Psychiatrist Kelly Brogan. She was nominated in Comments #3338-3339.

    Sweet person! But far from Enlightenment — or perhaps trustworthiness for down-to-earth people — since she’s got the lifestyle of spiritual addiction. Sorry about that.

  13. 3413

    And now, Juan Louis Guerra, a delightful musician from the Dominican Republic. He’s nominated by WILL at Comment #33340.

    He’s doing beautifully… as somebody in human-based spirituality. Especially lovely is his Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Giving.

  14. 3414

    I’m delighted to officially welcome George Kent to my Spiritual Enlightenment Life List. He’s a third-generation government professional, a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.

    Here’s George Kent’s photo.

  15. 3415

    In Comment #3353, JNANA nominated Vedic astrologer Simon Chokoisky.

    Well, JNANA, it’s not every day that a nominee for this Spiritual Enlightenment Life List is in spiritual shutdown. But such is the case for this astrology expert.

  16. 3416

    Proceeding now, at last, with more of your nominations, Blog-Buddies, let’s have Michelle Bachman, nominated (ironically) by STEVE in Comments #3360- 3361. It’s not everyone who refers to President Trump as “highly biblical” and “godly”!

    Surprisingly or not, former congresswoman Bachman is, like Trump himself, in extreme spiritual addiction.

  17. 3417

    JANICE has offered us a series of timely, important items for research.

    Starting with former President Bill Clinton, nominated in her Comment #3366. Sadly, he’s no longer in Enlightenment, so I’ll remove him today from this list. The poignant news is that he may not have his full cognitive capacity any longer. His Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source remains strong and beautiful.

  18. 3418
    Jnana says:

    I can’t get my head around it. An astrologer in shutdown?

    Didn’t realize one could be in shutdown and still practice astrology.
    But thank you for researching him.

  19. 3419

    In Comment #3367, JANICE next nominates TV comedy host and bestselling author, Trevor Noah. A celebrity whose face I’ve already read here at the blog… TWICE.

    Sadly, very astute, JANICE. He’s now in extreme spiritual addiction.

  20. 3420

    Sigh! And now for another beloved truth-teller through comedy, Eddie Murphy.

    Nominated by you, JANICE, in Comment #3368.

  21. 3421

    Let’s say there’s good news. And there’s bad news. Technically Mr. Murphy is functioning in human-based spirituality.

    But it’s as though most of the life has been sucked out of him. If I were to speculate, I’d say he is heavily medicated now, in order to function. (Not my area of greatest expertise. I am speculating.)

  22. 3422

    Next up is JANICE’S nominee in Comment #3369 -3374, the insightful Bryan Stevenson.

    And an uncommonly insightful nomination here, as well.

  23. 3423

    JANICE, I’m so glad he’s done great things. Here’s yet another celebrity who’s technically in human-based spirituality. But he also seems to me to be heavily sedated.

    To speculate, and I hasten to add, this too is outside my well established research experience, I suspect he’s under heavy medication, or has had intense medical procedures done to him, for health reasons.

  24. 3424

    By contrast, I suspect that Murphy is under a lot of medication to help him with emotional stability, and making contact with reality.

    Neither of these men, nor former President Clinton, could be my clients right now. They’re not functioning normally in consciousness, and thus I’d decline to take them on as clients. Energy Spirituality sessions are for people who have at least ordinary, basic mental health.

  25. 3425

    JNANA, thank you for this Comment #3418. You great big spiritual idealist!

    Haven’t you seen aura readings at this blog… starring prominent religious leaders and acclaimed healers who now aren’t functioning well? Walk of life guarantees nothing about consciousness, witness this energetic literacy research into an influential meditation teacher who is also in spiritual shutdown.

  26. 3426

    Thanks, JANICE, for your Comments #3375-3376, nominating John Oliver. Oh, please, God! Not another person I care about with messed-up consciousness lifestyle!

    (Note, that’s a cry from the heart. Not to be confused with a prayer.)

  27. 3427

    Hooray, John Oliver’s in human-based spirituality.

    In that link you sent, JANICE, he was performing despite a horrible headache. (Seems to me, medical things not being my specialty, but I couldn’t help but notice. Because headaches impact the research specialty I do have, which is consciousness.) Then I found a recent YouTube video and he was fine, no headache. Just the usual earnest, hard-working man with a biting wit!

  28. 3428

    Thanks also, JANICE, for your inquiry about Seth Myers in Comment #3377. I’d put it this way. He’s resisting extreme spiritual addiction, trying very hard to resist it. But he’s incredibly tense, in a personally scary state of battle.

    If any of you are in contact with Seth Myers, please invite him to consider having a session or two with me. I believe I might be able to help him.

  29. 3429

    Not meaning to sound presumptuous.

    If six degrees of separation connect the two of us, somebody please send him my invitation. I’ve been fond of him, and his work, for decades now.

  30. 3430

    What an interesting nomination, JANICE, in your Comments #3378-3379. Once I heard a radio interview with Sal Khan, Founder of Khan Academy, and I really liked him.

    So young, wow! Seems to me, JANICE, he’s in human-based spirituality. And aside from his obvious intellectual brilliance, what strikes me is that he’s a molecular empath.

  31. 3431

    On go the brakes. The “get ready for bedtime, Rose” brakes, pausing at your excellent nominations, OSCAR MANUEL. Beginning with your Comment #3392.

  32. 3432
    Janice says:

    Wow, thank you so much for these responses, Rose. I am fascinated to read about how these people are doing.

    I am sorry to hear about Trevor Noah but not surprised.

  33. 3433

    You know, JANICE. Fame, wealth, influence, and power have always come with temptation to make bad choices.

    In these early years of the Age of Awakening, astral entities and ETs are also doing what they can to influence people. Especially those who are vulnerable… and influential.

  34. 3434

    Blog-Buddies, do you have friends or family members who seem to be getting lost these days?

    Consider getting them a gift: A copy of “The New Strong.” It just might help them a lot. Here are some of the results that readers have noticed.

  35. 3435
    Janice says:

    I did cringe sometimes at jokes Trevor Noah made about fame. I also really cringed at some of the guests he brought on the show and gave a platform (and refused to watch).

    Knowing what I know about the dangers of fame addiction, I was very concerned and disappointed.

  36. 3436
    Janice says:

    After moving into Extreme Spiritual Addiction, it seems like he’s been willing to cross a line of decency that he wouldn’t cross before.

  37. 3437
    Janice says:

    What you say about Bill Clinton makes sense, if I understand correctly.

  38. 3438
    Janice says:

    I’d like to re-nominate Chelsea Clinton as well (#196 on the the list). Given the especially extreme pressures of fame these days, and how both of her parents are doing, how is Chelsea holding up?

  39. 3439

    JANICE, thank you for the latest superb comments.

    About Trevor Noah, and your Comment #3436, I don’t see it quite that way. More like, he’s lost his sense of human decency. As in the famous quote that helped stop McCarthyism in America, “Have you no decency, sir?” Human decency.

  40. 3440

    Something similar happened with Ellen DeGeneres. Back in the day, I was such a fan. And it thrilled me when I could put her on this Spiritual Enlightenment Life List. (Unlike Mr. Noah.)

    But then I heard reports from a Blog-Buddy that she had started doing icky things on her show, like getting her guests drunk in front of the camera.

  41. 3441

    Back when Ellen was running herself, wasn’t she one of the sweetest people on TV? So I don’t think that she — or necessarily Trevor — used to be tempted to cross a line of icky behavior.

    My theory is this. Behavior once in extreme spiritual addiction depends on the group of entities who run that particular person. Both she and Trevor, evidently, have become puppets to cruel entities.

  42. 3442

    Not merely creepy, like any Astral Entities and E.T. Entities involved in turning a human person into a puppet. But a nasty, creepy crowd.

  43. 3443

    By comparison, consider another comedy star, Steven Colbert. Back in the day, I was a huge fan. I even got involved in a little media banter, over my face reading of him that appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times, and then on his show.

    The fact that he showed my photo and made fun of my name on his show? I didn’t even mind. That’s how TV-crush-besotted I was.

  44. 3444

    Years later, I heard a man being interviewed on “Fresh Air.” Although he talked for a long time, I had no clue that this was (supposed to be) the sparkly-sardonic-sweetish Steven Colbert. Eventually he was called by name by Terry Gross.

    What a sinking sensation. That was the first time I HEARD the individuality totally sucked out a puppet, now in extreme spiritual addiction.

  45. 3445

    You know how some people claim, “I never forget a face”? That’s not me.

    But usually I do recognize a voice. And that voice was totally not the voice I knew, and loved, and attached to Steven Colbert.

  46. 3446
    Kylie says:

    Ooh!! What sweet news about Juan Luis Guerra (my nominee) and John Oliver, and about George Kent.

    Thank you for doing all of this research, so interesting.

  47. 3447

    However, Colbert’s group of entities don’t move him around to do creepy things like get celebrities drunk on camera.

    More like, as a performer he’s gone from outrageously talented and so very skilled… to all the charm of a blown-up balloon where most of the air has leaked out.

  48. 3448

    KYLIE, you’re welcome. All this research is interesting, and important.

    Because it’s for all readers of my blog, I feel good about doing this fairly time-consuming form of volunteer work. (As you know, KYLIE, I take this public research on consciousness lifestyle extremely seriously. For me, being an Enlightenment Coach is my most sacred responsibility in life.

  49. 3449
    Ethan says:

    Hi Rose, all these recent comments here have been very interesting and educational-wow.

    I’d like to nominate Randal Park-American actor and comedian. I am curious what his consciousness lifestyle is.
    Thank you.

  50. 3450
    Ethan says:

    Also I’d like to know what is Justin Bieber’s consciousness lifestyle -so much fame and fortune for such a young man.

    I am curious how he is doing these days as he choose to step away from the spotlight the past few years to take care of his mental health.

  51. 3451

    ETHAN, these nominations are fascinating. Thank you.

    I’ll get to them when I can.

  52. 3452
    Living on Earth says:

    Hi Rose,

    I’ve been seen a lot about Joan MacDonald lately. In just a year or two, she went through a huge physical body transformation by exercise and good diet only.

  53. 3453
    Living on Earth says:

    She just turned 73. Her accomplishment is admirable. So I’m curious about her consciousness lifestyle.
    The first picture is a good one to use. If you scroll down, you’ll be able to see the transformation. Thank you!

  54. 3454

    Wow, LIVING ON EARTH, I’m eager to research your nominee.

    Especially because one of the biggest illusions on Earth, as all you Blog-Buddies surely know, is the illusion that somebody who looks “good” and “thin” and has excellent muscle tone… must be a really great role model for the rest of us. Not every day do I have a chance to do this sort of research. Thank you.

  55. 3455

    Just one example of that illusion…. Note how you called MacDonald’s physical improvements “admirable”?

    I’m a skeptic. I don’t find appearance improvements “admirable.” Reminds me of my friend Gladys. When we were in our fifties, she told me that she worried about unsightly veins on her legs.

  56. 3456
    Rose Rosetree says:

    “I’m getting surgery to fix it,” she told me proudly. “I want my legs to look impeccable.”

  57. 3457

    Hey, according to my values as an Enlightenment Coach, I’m all for exercising and eating in a way that suits one’s own personal body. When somebody dresses cute, of course I like that.

    And there’s nothing wrong with getting a simple cosmetic procedure to make one’s legs appear more youthful. Cute legs are nice too.

  58. 3458

    Otherwise, though, I wonder why pop culture (and Collective Consciousness) make it seem as though anything related to vanity equals “impeccable” or “take this person as your role model.”

    FWIW, impeccable means something different to me: A pure heart. A noble character. Doing your reasonable best in this messy, ever-changing Learning Planet.

  59. 3459
    Living on Earth says:

    I so agree with what you said at comment #3458 Rose: “FWIW, impeccable means something different to me: A pure heart. A noble character. Doing your reasonable best in this messy, ever-changing Learning Planet.”

    As these are also the things that I very much cherish the most in myself and others, so much beyond the established beauty standards.

  60. 3460
    Living on Earth says:

    I’m learning more and more, especially at your blog, just how much gap there can be between looking “healthy” vs doing good in ones consciousness.

    The admirable part that got me curious definitely came from the age factor, which I don’t see this kind of thing too often at least to this extend.

  61. 3461
    Living on Earth says:

    Otherwise I agree with you completely.

  62. 3462

    Oh, LIVING ON EARTH, I think that increasingly we’re going to be seeing seniors who take very good care of themselves. Seniors who believe in “physical culture” and can get great results if we put our minds to it.

    This does contrast sharply with grandparents and other elders we met growing up. Nutrition can be so much better. Exercise opportunities can be found.

  63. 3463

    Opportunities like these are common knowledge, but I wonder how many people think about this other factor.

    We’re now living in the Age of Awakening. For that reason, each of us can evolve as rapidly as we choose; paying the price for everything that we get.

  64. 3464

    No longer are we humans stuck in what I call the “old rules” of the Age of Faith. These forced just about everybody to wait for other family members to catch up with us… before individuals could made significant progress toward any chosen goal.

    Could be, that’s a big factor. A new consciousness freedom being one reason why Joan MacDonald could make such a dramatic kind of physical transformation.

  65. 3465
    Living on Earth says:

    Food, the right kind of food for me, is definitely a lot in my mind lately.

    As I read my own aura, daily, I’m starting to notice what kinds of food really”dulls” me up vs the ones that really work well for my consciousness.

  66. 3466

    So even though, through years of habits, I like the tastes of certain food.

    I am more and more consciously choosing to eat what works best for my consciousness. Which actually ends up being the best choice for my body.

    Living on Earth says:

    I never want to pay the price of a “nice tasting treat” with bad consequences to my consciousnesses.

    All this is so fascinating Rose.

  68. 3468

    Glad you just brought up that topic, Living on Earth. That “never” you mentioned in your Comment #3467? Maybe that’s too short a time.

    Because we’re human, we need to play. We need to have fun. Even goof off.

  69. 3469

    Unless a food indulgence puts you at medical risk, please do it sometimes. And then do it guilt free.

    Sure you’ll pay a bit of a price. But calling it “bad consequences” makes this kind of a food romp seem so severe.

  70. 3470

    Besides, the harder we squeeze ourselves into optional dietary perfectionism, the more likely we are to start shoving the “forbidden foods” into our mouths. Directly and FAST, like gulping!

    Tell me, I’m not the only Blog-Buddy here who has noticed this. 😉

    haha… nooo you are not the only one:) I might have been too hard on myself lately.

    Living on Earth says:

    I love what you said in #3469. “Unless a food indulgence puts you at medical risk, please do it sometimes. And then do it guilt free.” Doing it guilt free is the key part for me.

    Food is one of the best parts of this beautiful Earth.

    Ethan says:

    Rose your comment #3469 made me smile:) thank you. I agree with what you say in #3470.

    If I don’t indulge once and a while I end up on a binge. I will- from now on- remember I’m only human, and this human can indulge in treats from time to time.

  74. 3474

    Agreed. If any incarnational world in the universe has better food, they’ll have to prove it to me.

    Meanwhile, LIVING ON EARTH, may we have a happy visit in this lifetime when we’re together in a room, here on earth, eating ICE CREAM!

    Ethan says:

    Hi Rose, I’d also like to nominate Prince Charles for your list. As the potential next to sit on the British throne what is his consciousness lifestyle? Thank you for this service as always.

  76. 3476
    Living on Earth says:

    Re #3473
    YESS!! I’m so looking forward to seeing you again one day:)

    Meeting with YOU and ice cream… Double treat for me!

  77. 3477

    Thanks for your latest comments here today, ETHAN and LIVING ON EARTH. I appreciate you both.

  78. 3478

    It is fascinating to read, these days, how Prince Charles is taking on more and more responsibility as Queen Elizabeth moves into her nineties.

    Including his taking action over the recent Prince Andrew scandal.

  79. 3479

    Back we go, Blog-Buddies, to the educational playground of Enlightenment Validation… and my related duties as an Enlightenment Coach. Let’s start with Comment #3392 from OSCAR MANUEL. (I’ll supply a link because we’re now on another page of this post. You could also find your way back by clicking at the box at the bottom, for Page 34.)

    A nomination starring Woody Allen!

  80. 3480

    Technically, OSCAR, I’d put Woody Allen’s consciousness lifestyle in the general category of Human-Based Spirituality.

    That said, however, he’s not doing well. About as full of life as the flowers at your supermarket that have been kept in the refrigerator case for a long time. Not much oomph to his aura, or size to his chakra databank. And his quality of experience is so blank, I’d suspect a LOT of psychiatric medication.

  81. 3481

    Next, OSCAR, I’d be delighted to research famed novelist Elizabeth Gilbert, nominated by you in Comment #3394.

    Usually you do a superb job of supplying photos, only this time you forgot. Under the circumstances, after your many recent perfect photo-ed nominations, I’ve found very current Elizabeth Gilbert image for research. It’s from a YouTube video, at 12:45 minutes in.

  82. 3482

    Sadly, she’s now in extreme spiritual addiction.

  83. 3483

    Next up, OSCAR, the fascinating novelist John Green, nominated in your Comments #3395-3402.

    Onto this Enlightenment Life List he goes!

  84. 3484

    JANICE, oops! I skipped over your nomination of Chelsea Clinton, in Comment #3438. But now It’s her turn. And yours — thanks for this very interesting nomination.

    Except you didn’t send a photo, JANICE. How about this? Please wait until Chelsea has finished her current pregnancy and had a few months after the shakeup of giving birth. Then send a researchable photo, okay? I’d appreciate it.

  85. 3485

    Next, Prince Charles. Finally nominating him! Thank you, ETHAN, for your Comment #3475.

    Not often am I baffled by somebody’s aura, but here’s the deal.

  86. 3486

    First of all, royal-sized arrogance dominates his chakra databanks. Quite breathtaking, really, the degree of self-satisfied grandeur mixed with his sense of superiority.

    Second, his chakra databanks are distorted and confused in a manner that makes it likely that….

  87. 3487

    Seems likely, he’s in the early stages of the process of moving into extreme spiritual addiction.

    Here’s what I’d recommend, ETHAN. Wait until Prince Charles has ascended the throne, following the death of his mother. And occupied it for at least 3 months. Or simply wait a year. Whichever comes first.

  88. 3488

    Then find a photo of him and send it over to this Spiritual Enlightenment Life List research project.

    Will that be okay? Because I’d really like to wait until he’s fully in one consciousness lifestyle rather than kind of in two, spiritual shutdown and moving into extreme spiritual addiction. Thanks in advance, ETHAN.

  89. 3489
    Ethan says:

    Hi Rose I will certainly follow up on this. Thank you!

  90. 3490

    Randall Park next, ETHAN, thanks to your Comment #3149. What fun to research him, since I’ve admired his performances in “Always Be My Maybe” and “Fresh Off the Boat.”

    I’m glad to report, he’s living in human-based spirituality. And much further along toward Enlightenment than many an official spiritual teacher.

  91. 3491

    Next, THE Justin Bieber. ETHAN, I agree: “so much fame and fortune for such a young man.”

    How’s he doing at the time of the excellent research aura photo you’ve sent? Doing not-great within human-based spirituality. But at least he’s recovering, and doing his best to move forward. I admire that.

  92. 3492

    Of course, many of us are curious about your nomination, Living on Earth.

    That Joan MacDonald and her great “achievement.”

  93. 3493

    The conversation begun with your Comment #3552 morphed into a free-flowing conversation that all you Blog-Buddies are welcome to read.

    And contribute to. Just begin by writing something like, “Related to Comment #3476.” Our conversations here are timeless. That’s one reason we have short comments. And also our custom is to refer to them by number. So feel free to join in any time.

  94. 3494

    Spiritual shutdown is the consciousness lifestyle that goes with Joan’s “shredded” body. Yes, she’s worked with great determination.

    Although I think the article you cited was pretty disingenuous in stating that Joan’s 55-pound weight-loss was due to using her iPhone. 😉

  95. 3495

    Hey, I’ve got a nominee, courtesy of CHRISTINE. Part of a conversation we’ve been having at our DISCERNMENT JAMBOREE about Enlightenment Validation.

    I’ve been providing perspective, as best I can, on the views of a popular expert about Enlightenment. According to Brian D. Stephens, “Keep in mind that that there are only fifty-six liberated souls alive on the planet at any one time. And forty-eight of them are unknown to the public and do not have the responsibility of being a spiritual teacher.”

  96. 3496

    In her Comment #19 at that Enlightenment Validation article, CHRISTINE proposed that I research Mr. Stephens for this list.

    Here’s the photo link she supplied.

  97. 3497

    Spiritual addiction is his attainment so far.

    Somehow, though, Mr. Stephens looks very righteous (and also extremely clean, fwiw). In fairness, I haven’t seen words on his website where he claims to be in Enlightenment. (Which does make it all the more curious that he’s so sure about the preposterous concept of 56 liberated souls on Earth at any one time.)

    Living on Earth says:

    Re: #3494

    Oh I was too focused on finding a good picture, didn’t even read the article. They make up just about anything in the name of ‘catchy’ these days. Thank you for the reading Rose!

  99. 3499
    Living on Earth says:

    Re: #3488

    I’m surprised to read that he is moving from Spiritual Shutdown to Extreme Spiritual Addiction.

  100. 3500
    Living on Earth says:

    Its possible but it seems like the two are on the opposite ends of the spectrum.

    I guess the demands of being a part of the royal family can be too high and lead one to choose such a change.
