Deeper Perception Made Practical

Aura Reading Whitney Houston, How She Dealt with Fame in Kali Yuga

Best Celebrity Aura Readings

 

On a day consecrated to love, let’s celebrate Whitney Houston. Let’s read her aura from the glory days of her career.

But let’s also bring ourselves a highly counter-culture Valentine’s Day gift — a revised perspective on love. Not everyone can become rich and famous. This is a statistical fact of life. Can we love ourselves anyway?

Fame pressure for all who live today

One way to cope with today’s fame pressures is to use aura reading research to assess how various mega-famous people have handled their fame. Today’s article could be a read as a cautionary tale or a consoling one.

Let’s face it. You and I will probably never be as famous as Whitney Houston.

Sour grapes aren’t being offered in today’s aura reading but, rather, a chance to re-evaluate how fame can be a mixed blessing. Loving yourself, including your current degree of fame and prestige, that’s a great feat for all of us living in today’s Vanity Culture.

  • So many of today’s celebrities are famous mostly for being famous. (How does this make sense? Maybe no sense at all, unless you admit, “Yes, I am living during Kali Yuga.”)
  • So many people are sure that the noblest path in life is to become an actor, a singer, a model, a reality show star, a famous musician, a famous writer. (And why would this be?)
  • So many politicians tell outrageous, unmitigated lies. Even when political fact checking services are readily available thanks to the Internet!

Speaking of today’s weird Kali Yuga, Vanity Culture, you might be fascinated (as I was) by a recent op-ed article in the Washington Post, “Five Myths about White People.”

Here is an excerpt about how one group of Americans, white males, are whiling away their time during Kali Yuga:

In 1968, 97 percent of white males ages 30 to 49 who had at most a high school diploma were in the labor force — meaning they either had a job or were actively seeking work. By March 2008 (before the Great Recession), that number had dropped to 88 percent.

That means almost one out of eight white working-class men in the prime of life is not even looking for a job. This is not just an issue of “discouraged workers”; this rate of labor force dropouts rose in the boom years of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as rapidly as it did in years of recession….

Time-use surveys have further documented shifting behavior among unemployed men. In the early 2000s, compared with 1985, such men spent less time on job searches, education and training, household work, or civic and religious activities — and more time watching TV and sleeping.

What do you think are the odds that these guys are using their prime-of-life time to watch prime-time TV, amusing themselves with celebrities, dreams of fame and sex and wealth, and meanwhile doing close to nothing to help real-live people? Also, of course, these couch potatoes are squandering their real-life potential as human beings (in this lifetime anyway).

How sad. And how very Kali Yuga.

Aura reading Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston didn’t do that. She didn’t sit and dream about becoming a celebrity. Whitney Houston did her best, staging comeback after comeback despite the mess that her life became.

A photo from 2009 is the one I’ll be researching. If you don’t know much about her sad story, here’s how the New York Times began her obituary:

Whitney Houston, the multimillion-selling singer who emerged in the 1980s as one of her generation’s greatest R & B voices, only to deteriorate through years of cocaine use and an abusive marriage, died on Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif. She was 48.

Especially famous for her recording of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.” Whitney Houston moved into film roles that included “The Bodyguard” and “The Preacher’s Wife.” However she became addicted to marijuana and cocaine, as decribed in a 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey. If you can stand the human heartbreak, you might want to watch this sad but courageous interview on YouTube.

Let’s research a range of this loveable star’s chakra databanks, reading her aura with Stage Three Energetic Literacy, to compare her inner self during two very different periods in her life.

Aura reading Blog-Buddies, use the following links to do your own aura readings. I would especially recommend your using one of the two different techniques in “Read People Deeper” for reading auras from photos, all the way down to the level of chakra databanks.

Definitely avoid doing any technique of empath merge. Even if you are a very skilled empath and are doing a technique that offers you full energetic protection (such as techniques in “Empowered by Empathy” and “Become the Most Important Person in the Room”) it is just plain not smart to do empath merge with anyone so troubled.

Aura Reading Databank, Root Chakra: The Reality She Lives In

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

28 feet. Courage. Spunk. Ambition. Deep faith.

Desire to give to the world and a sense of destiny that reality will support the fulfillment of her dreams.

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

7 inches. Fallout from the cocaine use is especially evident here. Whitney lives in a cartoonishly hollow, STUPID, frustrating, empty reality. She has spent so much time identifying with the astral-level experiences associated with that type of drug use, even if she has technically dried out from the highs, no dice.

Unless she finds a way to release the STUFF stuck in her as a consequence of these traumas (cords of attachment with items while stoned, frozen blocks from times moving in and out of drug experiences and physical abuse), there is no way the woman can re-invest in human life. And believe in regular old human reality.

Instead, gamely, Whitney Houston is gaily pretending to find life real. She doesn’t believe in it.

Maybe she can enjoy the success of using her will, or fanning up some flames of her old celebrity. That is the only possible victory to bring consolation to a surreally empty life.

???Aura Reading Databank, Throat Chakra: Communication while Performing

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

Fills the room and several inches beyond. Bringing people hope.

Reminding others (and herself) about the potential of human life to be sweet, despite all the problems.

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

5 inches. The magic is gone.

It takes all of this courageous woman’s willpower to sing at all.

No joy. No feeling of the old glorious support from God.

Singing feels like just about everything else on earth: Garbage. Empty garbage being offered to a woman who used to feel like a queen. Now she feels numb and tortured.

People have persuaded her, and she has tried to persuade herself, that singing can change things. As if! Deep down, sadly, tragically, Whitney Houston knows better.

Aura Reading Databank, Throat Chakra: Communication in Personal Relationships

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

4 inches. “I’ll show you. I’ll show you by being famous. I’ll make up for the past by what happens in my public life from now on. I will get the respect I deserve.”

Bitterness, rage, and helplessness make a toxic mix in this databank. Often a subtext, this difficult inner experience is also slathered over with plenty of denial.

Despite denial, however, disregarded energies like these still have impact in life, showing as auric modeling that repels however cheerful the face and body language.

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

1 inch. No patience. No illusions. No interest.

Aura Reading Databank, Solar Plexus Chakra: Power Integrity

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

Fills the room while performing. Bringing a quality of feeling safe just because prayers are answered and good things happen, like the miracle of this career.

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

3 inches. Bitterly, Whitney is aware that the celebrity culture ate her up, digested her soul’s offering, and then spit her out.

Avoiding bitterness and contempt, putting on a game face while in public, is her heroic expression of power.

Whitney Houston is just getting through one performance at a time, superficially hopeful. In the hellish emptiness of her existance now, singing is as good a way to spend the time as anything else.

Note: It may be hard for you Blog-Buddies to appreciate the deep contempt for life and disconnection from it that pervades Ms. Houston’s aura at this time, simply related to the ravages of drug use. Good! This “hellish emptiness” is probably like nothing you have ever experienced, even once, in this lifetime.

Aura Reading Databank, Third Eye Chakra: Spiritual Connection While Performing

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

27 feet. Holding strongly to her religious ideals and beliefs.

A kind of bargaining is in progress. Whitney agrees to be good in return for what she is being given in her career.

The God with whom Whitney Houston bargains is a harsh form of God who is not easy to fool. Despite her efforts to stay in control, Whitney fears that he senses impurity and weakness in her. (See the next chakra databank for one of the contributing factors.)

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

3 inches. There is no connection to God, as it once flowed through her.

Think of a child who plays a kid’s plastic drum. When the talented child grows up, she is given magnificent percussion equipment; she plays it superbly.

Now, after the drummer has suffered nearly unbearable pain, that instrument has been taken away. All she has left is a drum like the one of her childhood. Only this one is cracked and the paint mostly scraped off.

Such a pitiful instrument! Playing it feels like a frightening mockery. As if all the previous playing really sounded like this, too.

Such is the inner echo when doing familiar activities after there has been significant long-term cocaine use. Having been given delicious celebrity and had that, too, withdrawn, adds to Whitney Houston’s sense of torment.

Aura Reading Databank, Root Chakra: Relationship to Her Physical Body

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

3 inches. “Feed me,” Whitney’s body is screaming.

Yes, it isn’t easy for Ms. Houston to achieve The Anorexic Ideal. Extreme thinness is, of course, a job requirement, given the job she has and the time when she is living.

Honestly, Blog-Buddies, look again at the big version of her photograph earlier in this post. See how Witney’s collarbones are poking through at the skin on her neck. Look at the size of Whitney’s waist, with that skinny fabric belt hanging loosely. And then remember how the camera adds on 10 pounds.

This healer longs for the day when enough people are using Stage 3 Energetic Literacy to change this sick aspect of celebrity culture. Because change it will when people like us, millions of us, can read for ourselves the price women pay to conform to The Anorexic Ideal.

A perfectly semi-starved physique is not beautiful. Very few women are naturally this slender, and aura reading can show you how many aspiring celebrities suffer as Houston did, chakra databanks screaming like severely underwatered plants. Beautiful? Hardly!

Back at reading this chakra databank in Whitney Houston’s aura, she fights every day, struggling to deny the natural needs of her body. Keeping herself semi-starved is considered part of “being good” spiritually.

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

3 inches. Whitney still wants to live, in the way of an animal seeking survival.

Joy is gone. Senses have been wrung dry of the capacity to experience joy. Living within this body alternates moments of numbness and disconnection with active loathing.

Aura Reading Databank, High Heart Chakra: Soul Expression, Soul Thrill

  • Whitney Houston, promising Kali Yuga Celebrity

Fills the room, plus 5 inches. The concentrated presence of God is being delivered through this performance.

It isn’t just about having a gorgeous voice, having technical skill as a singer, being committed, being brave.

The reason why Whitney Houston has this career (apart from good karma for fame) is the God-given talent. Whitney allows herself to be an instrument to bring her own surrender to Divine energy, whether she understands the process or not, whether she feels good or not when not performing.

Whitney Houston’s soul is thrilled to participate in this form of service to humanity, co-creating with God as she sings. She feels free, surrendering, vibrationally uplifted.

Everyone who hears her is invited to participate in this auric modeling and be vibrationally lifted.

Note that, as eloquently described in a recent comment from Blog-Buddy Charles, spiritual surrender to God is a beautiful path that can, if we choose, give way to co-creation with God, more like an adult than a child.

  • Whitney Houston, burned out Kali Yuga Celebrity

1/8 inch. No experience of soulfulness. Performance is mechanical, this activity not much different from other pointless boring ways to fill up time in a prisoner-like existence.

Conclusion of this aura reading of Whitney Houston

Tragedy of an early death is nothing compared with the tragedy that this brave woman experienced through drugs and physical abuse, plus the torment of being given huge fame only to have that fame withdrawn.

Talented, rich, famous, beautiful, thin enough to satisfy The Anorexic Ideal — Whitney Houston helped people in ways she could not know… until her life review.

I haven’t gone there. Besides, all the results aren’t in yet. Who knows how many women (and men) learned to walk away from an abusive marriage, just because this star showed them how it could be done?

Who knows how many bright young things were offered cocaine or pot, flashed on the terrifying image of Houston cheerfully pretending to make a comeback, and thought, “No.”?

Auric modeling teaches us all, whether or not we read auras consciously.

All of us inspire or warn others, over the years, for all our followers — Twitter followers, fans, or simply neighbors or co-workers.

Nobody gets out of earth alive. Maybe it is also true that nobody gets out of earth without inspiring someone… whether to imitate life choices or avoid them.

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love and also be grateful for all those who have inspired us. Whitney Houston certainly has inspired me.

    It’s so sad how she lived with no joy at the end of her life. All the other details are so sad as well, poor Whitney!

    I’m glad I’m not and I don’t want to be famous. Never have! Find it hard enough living up to my own standards!

    Thank you for the link to the Kali Yuga information, very interesting.

    Thanks, AMY, for that first and exceedingly wise perspective.

    Glad you liked the link to the Kali Yuga articles. One was to this blog, another to this superb article:

    Thanks Rose – feeling quite moved after reading this post.

    Helps me to have a better understanding of Whitney Houston and her life agreement….she has inspired me as well.

    Did not know about Kali Yuga – great link – have already shared it.

    Please forgive me in advance for this request as I deeply respect the time and effort you invest into all that you do….perhaps might you possibly consider doing a future blog post about Kali Yuga….?

    Quick happy change of topic here….in researching what else you have written about Kali Yuga I just saw Bill Cunningham on the enlightenment life list.
    So great – I think he is wonderful.
    Have been watching his “On The Street” New York Times videos forever.

    Amys’ comment reminds me of something else I believe you wrote Rose – yet I cannot recall which book, article or blogpost it was from (Elizabeth Taylor?)…something about how being famous is one of the hardest things for a human to be…

    Great post, ROSE. What a tortured life it became for Whitney Houston in the end. Very moving to read this and I, too, got to the end thinking how wonderful at some point it would be to hear more about Kali Yuga. That article was fascinating and sure does explain a lot.

    JEAN, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Bill Cunningham is actually on the list of folks who were nominated, but didn’t make it on the Enlightenment list. I nominated him and when I read your comment I thought I’d missed something, so I checked. He is still such a joyful, wonderful guy, enlightened or not. I hope you saw the documentary about him. Fabulous.

    Rose, I wondered if you had seen the BBC panorama program about America’s homeless? http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01c2y2b/Panorama_Poor_America/

    I understand this would not be a priority to look at and you have plenty of things to comment on so my summary is brief. It explores homeless people living in tent camps outside cities in America, in storm drains in Las Vegas, and people who can’t afford to get necessary medical treatment. Coming from Europe I’m really struggling to understand how State governments are making cuts in social welfare when there are examples like these.
    I won’t be expecting a response, though I’d value your thoughts, I know you are busy!

    AMY, it is so hard to take in, this homelessness situation here in the U.S. In San Francisco, it seems to be growing all the time. I must see at least 10-15 homeless people a day. I’m constantly reminded of it and it is tragic. The news show “60 Minutes” did a story on homeless kids in Florida. Heartbreaking.

    The Kali Yuga information has been illuminating and provides a grim explanation of what’s been going on in our country. When I can stand taking in brief sound bites of some of the politicians campaigning for president (only those bits chosen by Jon Stewart 🙂 ), the greed in the messages is astonishing.

    We have more and more extremely rich folks here saying, “Tax me more!!” (with enlightened Warren Buffett leading the charge), but there is still a contingent of politicians who insist on making choices out of beliefs that strike me as completely heartless and frightening.

    I’m heartened to know that there are enlightened people out there fighting back and bringing the conversation back to morals and values like compassion, but it is truly astonishing to see what these people are espousing.

    Beautiful Rose. You inspire me! Thank you! I love this “Maybe it is also true that nobody gets out of earth without inspiring someone..”
    and “Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love and also be grateful for all those who have inspired us.”

    I saw a documentary last night called “I Am” by Tom Shadyac. He calls the greed mentality in the world a mental illness. It is a very inspiring film along the lines of ‘we are the change’ Our consciousness will bring the shift we all so hope for by realizing the Truth of who we really are.

    Thank you Grace W for filling me in on Bill Cunningham.

    Yes my apologies- I guess I was a bit sleepy and failed to note (oops) that it was the nominated list where I saw his name…so glad you nominated him Grace.

    Enlightened or not – he is a person I admire.

    On to Kali Yuga….

    For me the Kali Yuga info. makes sense – helps to explain so much.

    Here I had been looking to the sun – which is currently nearing its once in 12 years or so solar maximum (the solar maximum being one of the most active time for sunspots and such)
    ….yet I have noted recently that even on days when the sun is quiet – the energy of all that is happening now is still ramping up and up and up…

    Ah, Kali Yuga…..

    Thank you again Rose for bringing up this important topic.

    Sure has borne fruit for me.

    Jordan says:

    I loved this reading Rose… absolutely horrifying!

    I especially enjoyed your beautiful writing in this post.

    I’m curious… I’d like to put my finger on exactly what it is that is inherently good or desirable about fame, instead of just assuming. Is it the attention and the admiration? The satisfaction of knowing you’re making a big impact? I don’t understand this as well as I’d like to…

  11. 11

    Aw, thanks, JORDAN. Your question is fascinating. I do wonder what other Blog-Buddies have to say about this, whether for yourselves or about the role of fame in our Vanity Culture at large.

  12. 12
    Grace W says:

    Interesting question, JORDAN. I think that one thing that can be good about fame is being able to make an impact, to share one’s gifts with a wide audience, having that access. I think of this in terms of people I like who are so talented, perhaps enlightened, have developed their gifts and are sharing them with huge audiences, perhaps entertaining and inspiring people. I think that’s quite cool.

    Then there’s the aspect of someone being famous that allows them to use that fame to do good work in the world because they have such a wide audience. I think of Bono, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie (though I’m not crazy about her), for instance.

    I’m not big on the whole being famous for being famous thing, like Paris Hilton.

    However one is famous, I think it would still be very challenging to live with, especially these days. It must take a lot of wisdom and planning to hold one’s ground in the face of all the stuff that comes with being famous. That’s what was so sad about Whitney Houston’s story. It must have been so incredibly difficult for her.

  13. 13
    Amy says:

    Jordan, I think it’s like the ultimate goal, when your goal is to get to the point where life is ‘perfect’ and ‘everyone will know you’re famous and have to respect you’ and it will be so ‘amazing’ and everyone’s ‘well jel!'(very jealous for those of you who haven’t been to England and Contingent on not being very introspective or feeling like you have other options to be happy).

    Also IMO may be based on feeling like you’ve not been noticed or to ‘prove people wrong’. So many reasons but I think to want fame for the sake of fame indicates there’s something going wrong with the person. Perhaps finding normal life extra hard or boring. The ultimate goal is always in the back of their mind like a back up goal so maybe not facing up to all the specific details of reality in their own life or really committing to their boring normal life.

    To me it comes across as compulsion like many others. Something to distract oneself from something.

    Amy says:

    GRACE W.
    I find American politics absolutely fascinating. I bore my work colleagues to death telling them the latest crazy thing the Republican nominees have said (and all of them have said at least one thing that smacks me upside the head and I hear myself say ‘Oh. My. God. LOL). I love America and have great hope for America but I can see that Kali Yuga is taking it’s toll.

    Rachel says:

    I attended a short course on mythology a while back, and the facilitator talked a lot about tribal cultures. He referred to a distinction in tribal cultures between “affirmation” and “blessing,” an “affirmation” approximating something like what you get when you’re famous i.e. the adoration of the masses, validation for your work etc.

    He described “blessing” as when people really SEE you. I forget his exact words, but it was something to do with how we each need about eight people to truly SEE us.

    I think the idea was that the desire for fame arises when we have not been truly seen for who we are, with all our gifts and vulnerabilities.

    Rachel says:

    I just looked the facilitator of my course up. He quotes Gary Snyder as saying: “Be famous for five miles.”
