Deeper Perception Made Practical

Enlightenment Nominees

Enlightenment Nominees

Enlightenment Nominees: Check here first, please, before nominating new candidates for my Enlightenment Life List.

Enlightenment Nominees? Sure, it’s time I started keeping a list.

Nominating candidates for the Enlightenment Life List is easy. You’ll find instructions at the Spiritual Enlightenment List. To help you keep track, I have developed this alphabetical listing of Enlightenment Nominees.

Please Check This List of  Nominees Prior to Requesting Research

Taking this step will tell you if your nominee has already been considered. If you find that name here, the Enlightenment Nominee cannot be nominated again. Unless you persuade me in your comment that something significant has changed. Regarding that person’s consciousness lifestyle.

Also good to know.

  1. The main Spiritual Enlightenment Life List is chronological. You could look there, for a glow-by-glow report on who has been discovered for the list.
  2. A quicker method would be to check out the alphabetized version of the Enlightenment Life List.
  3. By contrast, this is an alphabetized list of nominees for ALL who have been NOMINATED to the Enlightenment Life List.
  4. And here is a link to a separate list that this Enlightenment Coach maintains to track people from the RES community who have moved into Enlightenment.

Enlightenment Nominees May Still Be Dear to You

Of course you can still be inspiration crushing on any Enlightenment Nominees. Whether energetic literacy skills indicate to me that the person belongs on my Enlightenment Life List or not.

You get to choose Enlightenment Nominees. That’s your job.

Might I recommend, when it comes to discerning a person’s consciousness lifestyle? Please leave this big-responsibility kind of discernment to somebody with qualifications as an Enlightenment Coach.

Certainly there are plenty of good people, superb inspirations, magnificent teachers, etc., who don’t yet make it onto that Spiritual Enlightenment Life List.

Once Is Enough for Enlightenment Nominees

You can, surely, understand why would prefer to not re-research candidates who have been researched once.

So check out those interesting names, Blog-Buddies. Alphabetizing is done by first name! And big thanks go to the friend of this blog who generously volunteered to create this list.

How is it possible to research a person’s aura from a regular photograph? Because, when you have skill as an aura reader- Stage Three Energy Literacy — every photo is an aura photo!

As a facilitator of Energy Spirituality sessions for healing, I think it is good to keep in mind that one way to understand why folks aren’t yet in Enlightenment is that they have STUFF, stored emotional and energetic debris at the astral level. This is a level that corresponds to the subconscious mind.

Any technique that permanently moves out STUFF helps a person move forward more rapidly on his or her personal, sacred path to Enlightenment. My motto with Energy Spirituality is that STUFF can always, always, always be healed.”

  46. Zounds! The very controversial Alan Watts has been moved to the end. I don’t want him to be the very first name you readers see. If you have made it all the way through to the end of this list, you may also have the patience to read comments about why he is controversial over at the main post with the Enlightenment Life List.

    It seems Ramana Maharshi are on both the enlightened and not enlightened list. He is 133 on the enlightened list. Peace (you can delete this comment)

    CHLOE did me such a favor. I researched like wild, because inconsistencies matter a lot to me.

    Then I emailed her to find out where she saw the inconsistency. Turned out, she saw him listed here.

    And that, in turn, caused me to edit the main body of the post. It should have said that everyone nominated would be found there, whether Enlightened or not.

    I haven’t been thoroughly consistent since this list was begun, but have done my best without making this a crazy-making pursuit of perfection.

    Been there, done that.

    With Comment 3, part of what made CHLOE’s comment so dear to me was her giving me an out so I could correct my mistake in private.

    Yes, I have had many experiences of humiliation already in life, and appreciate that extra consideration. In case I had needed it this time.

    BEA, you have the right idea, nominating.

    However, you are at the wrong part of the blog.

    Please go here: https://www.rose-rosetree.com/blog/2010/07/18/enlightenment-life-list-aura-reading-energetic-literacy/

    Read the instructions in the main post for nominating, what needs to be included for me to respond to your nomination.

    Then do one nomination per comment.

    (BTW, it is cute how you give the great Barbara Streisand her own supreme category.)

    Welcome to the blog, BEA.

    RICHARD, thanks for gracing us with your presence here at “Deeper Perception Made Practical.”

    Unfortunately you didn’t just comment in the wrong section of this blog. (As readers were reminded in Comment #7, right before yours.) It is also likely that you didn’t read too far before you began to sneer and frame your advice for me.

    In your haste to contribute, evidently you didn’t notice: OSHO was nominated for this list. He was not added to the list.

    Even the loveliest roses can have some thorns, so I’m not going to hold these first two comments against you.

    At this blog, a wide range of views are represented. But with basic civility. Please include that in the future.

    If you wish to comment more on the thread of the Enlightenment Life List, please go here:

    Renominating Natalie Goldberg. (#1903)

    You missed reading her the first time and I let it pass thinking she couldn’t possibly be enlightened her path being zen and writing and so lots of technique time daily.

    But it keeps playing on my mind.

    Reading her words, my aura in shut down would be restored. She made the mundane so deliciously exciting. She’d penetrate deep into the ordinariness of everyday life and you’d see the happiness hiding behind.

    So much stuff to work through. So much pain on her chosen path. But she gave herself over to honesty. Completely. I hope it served her well.

    Ivanka Trump? Really???

    Hey, RACHEL. You just might be confusing the list of NOMINEES — which is this post, and it seldom receives comments for that reason — with my Enlightenment Life List.

    People listed there are those deemed to be in Enlightenment. Ivanka Trump has never been on that list.

    So, might I suggest that, in the future… If you wish to comment on my blog, you pay a bit more attention before sending me your question marks of what?

    Great indignation and self-righteousness? (Hard to tell precisely, of course. Especially since you didn’t bother to write complete sentences here.)
