“I just can’t wrap my mind around it,” Gladys told me. “Elton John! How could he sing at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding?”
She had a point. The famously liberal and philanthropic singer was recently hired to sing at the radio broadcaster’s fourth wedding. You could perhaps predict that Limbaugh’s new wife would be blonde, skinny, and young enough to be his daughter. (Kathryn Rogers is 33 years old, while Rush is 59.)
But what could the flamingly gay Sir Elton John have been thinking? Feeling? How would he have been presenting himself in that room? Rush isn’t merely a gay basher. He could be called The Lord of Conservative Hate Speech in America. Bring on aura reading to search for some answers.
Before Aura Reading, some common sense
Energetic literacy (aura reading) is not meant as a substitute for paying attention to external reality. So I’ll practice what I preach and first look to objective reality for some explanation of the unlikely wedding performance.
Illumination came, thanks to Google and People Magazine:
- Both men believe in civil unions for gays, rather than marriage.
- According to People Magazine, “John, 63, has never been reluctant to confound those who think they know him. Consider his unlikely collaboration at the Grammys with Eminem, despite the controversial rapper’s gay-bashing lyrics. The two are still friends.”
- Also, this might have meant a lot to the philanthropically minded musician: Rush paid a performance fee of $1 million.
Okay, now let’s prepare to bring on full Stage 3 Energetic Literacy
What do I mean by Energetic Literacy, anyway?
People can mean very different things by the term “aura reading.” To me, it’s just basic literacy in the third millennium. Just as Gutenberg literacy became widely known in the second millennium — and is the main reason you are able to read this screen — so, too, is energetic literacy becoming available in this third millennium.
From my perspective, it starts with Stage 1 Energetic Literacy, where a person starts to “reads energy.” Although this is exciting and sweet, it isn’t the full extent of aura reading that a person is capable of enjoying in everyday life.
With more techniques and experience, a person can begin to enjoy a more detailed kind aura reading. I call it Stage 2 Energetic Literacy.
The energy field around a person consists in layer upon layer of information. This information is especially concentrated in places that correspond to parts of the physical body and are known as “major chakras.”
With this moderate degree of energetic literacy, a person generalizes about chakras and starts to find specific interpretations to perceptions at the level of the auric field. Even though this is an improvement over Stage 1 Energetic Literacy, with this Stage 2 Energetic Literacy there will be many inaccuracies and confusions. For instance, Gladys could have both these things going on in her Heart Chakra:
- Heart Chakra Databank: Emotional Giving to Others: 7 miles. The habit of giving until it hurts.
- Heart Chakra Databank: Emotional Receiving Others: 1 inch. Hesitation. Routine martyrdom. Feeling unworthy to receive.
If you’re interested in RES Energy Healing, either as a client or a practitioner, you want the full range of information, right? Otherwise with Stage 2 Energetic Literacy an aura reader might say, “How nice. Your heart chakra is open.”
Because the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses® emphasizes spiritual and emotional information, I’ve been able to bring some refinements into the field, including techniques that help a person to enjoy Stage 3 Energetic Literacy.
Not that I’m the only one who has that or can teach that! How do you know when you have full energetic literacy? You can read anyone’s aura in depth and detail, whether in person or from a regular photo.
What else? In my reading of Sir John at the wedding, I’ll use the technical term “chakra databank,” which simply means a small sliver of the information in any chakra. This type of information is easily available to anyone to read fluently, much as you are reading this screen, once full Stage 3 Energetic Literacy has become available.
Each chakra databank contains a gift of the soul, permanent like a fingerprint. Also included, usually, is “STUFF,” stored-up emotional or spiritual astral-level debris. STUFF can always, always, always be healed!
Which photo is used for this aura reading?
Many a newbie to energetic literacy is surprised that auras can be read from regular photos. Of course they can. Special aura photos are a cute marketing gimmick, also reassuring to people who are just discovering that they do indeed have an energy field.
But Stage 3 Energetic Literacy allows you to read auras from any photograph. You’re not reading the person for all time, of course, just in that picture.
Choosing the appropriate picture would be important for an aura reading like this one. Chakra databanks morph, depending on our choices, activities, level of stress. Gifts of the soul do not change but the rest sure is negotiable. So I chose a photo that showed all three protagonists in this non-drama, a Facebook photo of all three on the wedding day.
Whatever your current level of energetic literacy, you Blog-Buddies are invited to join me. Use this Aura Reading Link to bring up the picture used here. Then paste it onto a word document, pull on the corners and have a fine, juicy picture.
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. Click on a good image, preferably current with the time of the reading here at this blog.
Presence in the Room, Root Chakra Databank
A gift of the soul is Elton’s tremendous sweetness. He’s a profoundly loving being. The sartorial outrageousness for which he’s famous may serve as a distraction — or protection. But deep down at the level of chakra databanks, this is an incredibly heart-centered, vulnerable, innocent being.
At the time of this wedding, it’s also notable that Elton is manageably stoned on something like pot. His entire presence is trippy, with diffuse awareness.
I know that’s a serious thing to say about someone, and I don’t regularly read celebrity gossip so I don’t know if he has a reputation for being wild about weed these days.
Soon as I noticed this stoner presence, I checked our photo above, with the blue glasses. There he isn’t stoned on marijuana or anything else that I could detect.
As a super-talented empath, there’s a certain diffuse quality to Elton John’s aura all the time, but that’s a different deal from being stoned.
Hey, I can relate. The last time I got “drunk” was at an annual family gathering where I had to deal with “Joe,” an extremely arrogant relative. Okay, he’s a well meaning person of good character, but he sincerely believes himself so much wiser than my husband, son or me that it’s his duty to serve as our spiritual mentor and “educate” us at every opportunity.
In 2008, Mitch called my attention afterwards to the fact that (unbeknownst to my own conscious mind) I kept shaking my head “No” whenever Joe started preaching to us. (Apparently Joe didn’t notice, due to my position in the room.)
To avoid repeating this mistake, I decided to get drunk in 2009. And did. Of course, all it took to get me drunk was about five sips of wine. (For the record, the last time I got drunk before this was in college, in 1966.)
Probably Sir Elton had enough money to hire a driver to get home safely, don’t you think?
Sexual Self-Esteem, Belly Chakra Databank
First, the gift of the soul: Elton John has a huge presence in this chakra databank, with sex appeal off the charts (which helps to put his music ON the charts). The Sexual Self-Esteem chakra databank needs to be a big deal because his sexiness is such a big deal.
Fortunately, at the time of this photo, that self-esteem is going really beautifully. He has learned so much, done so much aura healing and life healing around his personal identity (showing in many chakra databanks). Scar tissues shows too, symbolizing to me how very much Elton John has grown in this area, far beyond his original life contract.
Specifically, being here with Rush and his bride, there is a faint quality of defensiveness, a slight presence of a mask that Elton has learned to wear around people who are, well, questionable.
Performance as a Singer, Throat Chakra Databank
People ask me sometimes if all people have the same 50 chakra databanks in each major chakra (and with the smaller number of databanks in the sub-chakras). The answer? Of course not.
Certain chakra databanks are standard, if you’re human. For instance, every adult has a Throat Chakra databank about “Communicating with Strangers” and “Asking for What You Need and Want in Close Relationships.”
Other chakra databanks change, depending on life choices and the specialties of that evolving soul. I don’t need chakra databanks to support me in being a professional singer, but you can be sure that I have many that support me as a writer, since that is my favorite thing to do in life. If you are in a love relationship with Elvis, you’ll have chakra databanks to support that. After you break up with Elvis and date Eddie, instead, those databanks will have Eddie’s name in them — and many may be quite different, since you could be growing in different ways now that you’re with Eddie compared to Elvis.
Over at Elton, in this particular situation, the talent persists but is minimized, much like a screen you could toggle on your computer. Granted, the size of this chakra databank probably shifts enormously while he is in the act of performing. (This is true of all major stars who really have talent as well as celebrity.)
However, even beyond the fact that Elton’s chakra databank would be smaller now, since he isn’t performing, I notice a strong energetic with-hold. It may be conscious, maybe subconscious. (I love that I have skills as a Consulting Hypnotist, used for Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis®, so I can help clients — and learn about them –as THEY access information at the level of the subconscious mind. This is such a fascinating way to complement the knowledge of the subconscious level that anyone with Stage 3 Energetic Literacy can find automatically through aura reading.)
Bottom line: “No way am I going to give this man my best performance. I’ll hold out on him. He won’t notice. He has no taste. He wants me here as a symbol, not as someone to listen to really. He’s playing his game? Hey, I’ll play mine.”
Emotional Self-Awareness, Heart Chakra Databank
It’s just plain huge, verging on self-indulgent at the time of this photo. Of course, this is an effect of smoking marijuana. Subjective reality is way over-emphasized. It’s part of the fun of losing contact with objective reality.
Usually (as in the photo here where Elton wears the blue glasses), the musician has a delectable, and proportionate, degree of self-awareness.
Now it’s over-the-top, slightly maudlin, self-pitying, and tinged with a need for secrecy which smells like a garment that had been in mothballs — a very ancient habit, not used in ages, but brought out for this particular occasion.
How he feels about Rush, Poking around INSIDE the Emotional Self-Awareness Heart Chakra Databank
Yes, Blog-Buddies, once you’ve become quite experienced at reading chakra databanks, you can start researching how your subject feels about other people in a photograph.
In this chummy photo op with the two celebs and the new, hopeful, adoring bride, here’s what I find. Elton has a bit of conflict going on, all the more woozy and unresolvable given his stoned state.
Mostly he does feel dislike and contempt. But Mr. John also struggles with himself to find common ground, not be “judgmental,” etc. Then there is denial over what he truly feels. Plus there’s a bit of an energetic sub-routine where Sir John is getting an assist from his intellect, supplying emotional ideas like, “It will be over soon. Just hang in here.”
I know that, according to People Magazine, Elton John is friendly with other potential adversaries on a social level, such as gay-bashing Eminem. And it would be possible to research a range of chakra databanks during such interactions. We might find many chakra databanks related to being social, and the intellect, the will, even spirituality, that make such relationships work. But other chakra databanks don’t necessarily stay “with the program,” most notably ones in the heart chakra and the high heart chakra. Which brings us to our final research item of this article….
Soul Thrill, High Heart Chakra Databank
This chakra databank is one of the most important I’ve discovered, the basis for Soul Thrill® Aura Research. Many other blog posts can educate you about the life-enhancing effect of making choices in your life that have a positive impact on this particular chakra databank. Just use that SEARCH box on the upper right to find them.
Here, in this photo, Elton John’s Soul Thrill chakra databank is jubilant. He has triumphed over an enemy. He is earning a million dollars off this man, after all. Just by going through the motions, stoned as he is, and giving a relatively mediocre performance, Elton John is going to be able to claim that he did such an event and never let Limbaugh intimidate him.
And you know what? Sir Elton is right to be thrilled.
Hey everyone, I’m adding something here, after the original post: Elaine, a Blog-Buddy who has been doing a lot of Skilled Empath Merges lately, had a superb, insightful perspective. See it in Comment 6. I am going to be thinking about the implication of her findings, because it does make me wonder about a couple of other chakra databanks that I didn’t research in this article.
Too late to research ANYTHING more for tonight. I’m en route to slumber. BUT big thanks to Elaine. And a reminder to all you Blog-Buddies to collaborate here at this blog any time by adding your comments to these posts.
During his life, Elton John has dealt with gay-bashers, tragedy, loss. He has had to power his way through the usual artist’s obstacles, all of which require great courage. (Is there any performing art, for instance, that requires as much courage as singing? Think about it.)
Even though speech and public persona may be telling the world, “This is no big deal. I’m chummy with this guy,” let’s be real. Energetically, politically, this jolly bridegroom, Rush Limbaugh, is one scary man.
Aurically, Rush isn’t technically evil. But he has a super-sized energy field. And even on a day of rejoicing and general benevolence — I love the way this photo captures the fawning, adoring body language of hopeful Bride #4 — Rush Limbaugh has an aura that drips with STUFF and wicked uses of power.
Why wouldn’t Elton John be proud of himself. It would be of no use to stand up to this radio broadcasting bigot. When was the last time that you heard of Rush changing his mind?
No, a better, and more practical, ploy would be to stand beside him, photo op and all, being well paid and weirdly respected. Think Harry Potter, paid well to go visit Lord Voldemort. Only, of course, you’d also have to think of Harry Potter stoned.
