Last night, the big Lance Armstrong-Oprah Winfrey interview was aired on TV. According to today’s Washington Post, the Tour de France champion showed no tears and little emotion when finally confessing to the use of performance enhancing drugs, then his elaborate cover-up.
Lance Armstrong is no dope
He is the last to admit himself a dope. Or a doper. Far more than the athlete who dominated cycling worldwide during the “EPO Era,” Lance Armstrong is a fascinating and complex man, personally appealing… and one heck of a liar.
Perhaps that is why so many have been willing to believe in his innocence until words of confession finally cycled their way out his mouth.
And you don’t have to be a psychic to predict that millions of fans would begin making excuses for Lance Armstrong, once those inevitable words started rolling.
How many of the grisly details were really surprising to the audience? I didn’t watch, nor do I plan to watch Part Two tonight. (Hey, I’ll be busy reading faces on the radio with Rebecca Jernigan — and you still have time before this evening to submit your photo for some free face reading….)
But here’s the fascinating part, what was making Lance Armstrong tick? I’ll use a photo to do some aura reading research. Of special interest are chakra databanks about his integrity. Because nothing reveals nuances of deception or truth-telling better than snooping around at the level of chakra databanks. Stage Three Energetic Literacy wins, ooh la la!
Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra: Connection to Objective Reality
2 feet. The normally ebullient Lance Armstrong sits in front of the big Oprah audience as a shattered man. His reality is in tatters. It’s as though every bone in his body has broken into splinters.
Except Lance Armstrong is very good at hiding. He has faced down cancer. He has faced conflict in the form of top-level competition.
He knows how to live while tormented and make it seem as though he is doing just fine. A man who exudes casual confidence as he deals with objective reality.
Right from this first chakra databank, this aura reader goes, “Wow! The man who pretends to feel so little is taking this scandal much harder than I ever would have imagined.”
Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra: Verbal Integrity
6 inches. I haven’t seen a throat chakra this messed up since I watched Clarence Thomas during the Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings.
Chronic lying is plumped up with ample rationalizations. It’s as though Lance Armstrong has forgotten the very meaning of telling the truth.
To the famed cyclist, talking means lying, prevarication, hiding in plain sight while moving a mouth.
The degree of deception is beyond ugly: It’s habitual.
Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra: Power Integrity
7 inches. The mouth is a moving part of the body. It could be compared to legs that cycle in a competition. Legs can go on their own, once trained to do so.
Similarly, the mouth can lie on its own, while the rest of the self stays remote, barely attached.
That’s one way to image for you, Blog-Buddies, how a curious ethical detachment shows in this chakra databank. At the time of this photo, Lance Armstrong is gathering up pieces of intellectual concept, of story, and stringing them together while, within, he feels no connection between words and what he either does now or what he has done in the past.
As a cyclist, perhaps he used those drugs to become a kind of performance machine. Ethically, that’s how he is right now. Lance Armstrong’s ethical predicament may seem new, in the sense of public exposure. But he has had a long training period of ethical performance where deeds have been detached from words.
Isn’t this an amazing part of the learning here at Earth School? Gotta love the really educational aspect of karma!
What we say and do will always result in consequences. Eventually we will live them, in a full five dimensions. (Or, these days, more.)
Aura Reading Databank at the Third Eye Chakra: Spiritual Integrity
3 inches. Pride. On the altar of highest ideals, I find Pride in Lance Armstrong.
- Pride in his importance.
- Pride in his body.
- Pride in his sexiness.
- Pride in his reputation.
This altar of pride is where Lance Armstrong has been worshipping for a very long time.
And can’t most of us understand, if not identify with, the great lengths to which this man has bent himself out of shape spiritually? Imagine being that successful and famous as an athlete. All those titles!
Even having them stripped away, down to the bronze Olympic medal…
To him, that’s still being more important than if he were simply a man who never won in the first place.
Lance Armstrong has been a cycling great but, even more, he has been a great expresser of Human Ego, pride, what one of my colleagues calls “Egoic Madness.”
Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra: Emotional Self-Awareness
This is the chakra databank where I would look to answer the question, “Does Lance Armstrong forgive himself?”
7 inches. The quality of chronic denial is identical to what I found with his verbal integrity.
To quote the Beatles, “He’s a real nowhere man.”
Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra: Sense of Humor
1/8 inch. What, me laugh? What, be prepared to take self less seriously and someone else more seriously?
Sure, deep down, Lance Armstrong has a gift of his soul for laughter. Everyone has this chakra databank, and with it a gift of the soul.
However, Lance Armstrong doesn’t use that sense of humor. It’s a non-starter for him.
And not because he takes life super-seriously, twisting himself into ethical torment, or constantly scrutinizing himself. Lance does what he has come into earth to do — be a great athlete at any cost.
Aura reading aside, pull out your common sense for a moment, Blog-Buddies. Have you ever known someone who lived for pride… to be capable of humor?
Conclusion to this aura reading
When a confident male is athletic, famous, slim, don’t we tend to think he has it all? Earth School has many labels, Blog-Buddies. Most of those labels are wrong.
That’s why I love reading auras, all the way down to chakra databanks. Here is Lance Armstrong, having a grand experiment here in this lifetime, living large.
It’s just one lifetime. He’s learning a lot. He’s playing an interesting role for athletic competition in the world at this time. If you think about it, Lance Armstrong is playing that role superbly. This aura reader has no complaint with any of this.
Seeing him stripped, in objective reality, from the most delightful parts of the Lance Armstrong EPO Experiment, that’s how the laws of karma catch up with a person. He happened to have it happen during this lifetime.
What really fascinates me about today’s aura reading research: How having that karma return, Lance Armstrong is not learning a thing. Not questioning anything, really. Not yet.
Looking forward to your comments below. Or, if you like, turn today’s post into an Aura Reading Jamboree and research the famous man on your own. (Please name the aura reading technique you are using, and make a separate comment for each chakra databank… unless you are reading at least five of them. Thanks!)
