So you’re interested in Deeper Perception! Yet you also live in objective reality, inescapable so long as you live here at Earth School. What people say and do, located right on the surface of life.
Good old objective reality, where certain choices cannot be avoided. And where each choice carries consequences, like it or not.
So often, Blog-Buddies, talking with a client in a healing session, I say something like this, “We’ll get to that aura reading part soon. But first, let’s pay attention to objective reality, Because Deeper Perception never works well as a substitute for common sense.”
Sunday, March 24th, is the day for a new Pathways Expo, a fabulous local/regional fair of the Mind-Body-Spirit community in the metro Washington, D.C. area. I’ll be there giving a talk on “The Power of Face Reading,” signing autographs for my books, giving short face readings and aura readings; altogether 10 varieties of energy literacy readings to choose from. Yes, here is my last shout-out for those of you who might come to Bethesda, Maryland for the Spring Pathways Natural Living Expo this Sunday, March 24, 2013. One more great reason to come? You can meet THREE of my talented apprentices in the Energy Spirituality Mentoring Program, all of whom have kindly offered to help at my Expo Booth Sweet 16.
Writing today’s post, I’m thinking about some of the conversations I WON’T be having with folks visit “Rose Rosetree’s Energetic Literacy.” at that Pathways Expo.
Conversations about seven life choices that could trump any healing session of Energy Spirituality, any session or technique of Energy Medicine or Energy Psychology, any session of Past-Life Regression Therapy.
Seven choices that might seem simple, yet they carry so very many consequences.
Two of the following choices are hardwired into your mind-body-spirit system. Most are optional. All affect your spiritual evolution. Have you consciously thought about them lately?
1. Right handed, left handed, or truly ambidexterous?
Now that’s a simple question to answer, isn’t it? Gone are the days when school children were forced to act right handed when they weren’t.
If you use your dominant hand automatically, then you have accepted your handedness. Thus you have set a fine precedent for self-acceptance about every aspect of yourself.
Which would be a really good thing. For one thing, if you’re on a path to Enlightenment, so many different approaches can get you there. But what’s never optional? A deep self-acceptance of things about you like right handed, left handed, or truly ambidextrous.
About this choice, as with all seven in today’s post, you Blog-Buddies are so invited to share.
Definitely share questions you think are more important than the seven I have chosen here. Which, to YOU, are The Seven Biggest Questions?
I’m curious if any of you have done the trick of trying to force yourself into being right handed, or experimenting with trying hard to become ambidextrous all day long Perhaps, supposedly, to “become more evolved”?
(Have I encountered that in some ambitious students and clients over the past 43 years? Yes, actually.)
2. Sexual orientation
Sexual orientation is not a choice (at least almost never). Like anything about how one is hard-wired for an incarnation, one’s sacred sexual orientation is something to accept and enjoy.
Sometimes, though, a person might need to experiment for a while with something different, just to smash boundaries, pay off old karma, or experiment. A sexual orientation question might go, “In this lifetime, am I heterosexual or homosexual or bisexual; an exotic variation on LGBT or very plain vanilla?”
Cord-cutting is really valuable for helping people clean up issues around sexuality, including busybodies who criticized or bullied, including current or former lovers.
If there is pain or confusion around sexual orientation, it is really important to cut cords of attachment that are relevant. Another resource that can be tremendously helpful for resolving issues around gender and self-acceptance? Soul Energy Awakening Past-Life Regression.
As with any of today’s seven questions, please be kind to yourself if you have had trouble with such an “Obvious” question. That sexuality question is a big deal for some, and not necessarily easy to answer.
With all the prejudice and propaganda around gay marriage, bullying related to being LGBT, etc., it can be hard to drown out the self-righteous voices (including new Pope Francis, perhaps) where people are so very sure about what another person “must” answer about sexual orientation.
If it’s any help, do know that our Enlightenment Life List definitely includes members of the LGBT community. One famous example is Ellen DeGeneres.
3. Householder or renunciate?
Simple question? Not really. Not in my experience of helping people as an Enlightenment Coach.
- Many spiritual teachers claim to teach householders, yet are using a renunciate technique that produces a renunciate’s detachment from life.
- Or the expectation of celibacy may be a little secret surprise that is announced after five years into studying with your guru.
- Or the spiritual teacher purposely lies to householders “for their own good.”
- Or the spiritual teacher has entrenched habits of lying to self about being a renunciate or not.
- Sometimes there is simply confusion. Which is one reason why many blog posts at “Deeper Perception Made Practical” are a’coming about Householder Enlightenment; already we have shared guest posts and articles about the perils of living in the tricky middleground, neither true householder nor true renunciate.
- Spiritual addiction often complicates a clear lifestyle choice.
Moving forward on your personal path to Enlightenment, it may be time for a course correction. This blog can help you with the information part of evaluating your current beliefs.
Often an Energy Spirituality session or two can make a big difference. Subconscious patterns, for instance in cords of attachment, can pull and tug a person toward the opposite lifestyle chosen by the conscious mind. When STUFF is permanently healed, free will works far better.
As you are here and now, reading this screen, do you have a clear answer to Question #3? If not, what will it take for you to decide?
4. Accept your current marital status or change it?
This one is a trick question, since both answers could be the best choice for you right now. Single or dating, in a relationship or not? Separated or divorced? In the words of Ann Landers, “Better off with him or without him?”
Notice objective reality right now. If you want to change some aspect of it, do your reasonable best. Meanwhile, please be kind to yourself.
Trickiest of all, due to the times when we live, what if you’re in a love relationship now? Ask yourself “Married or Partners?”
Is calling yourself “partners” really just a cooler, more contemporary version of being legally married?
Some research suggests that infidelity is more likely. Breaking up is more likely.
Personally, I give three cheers to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his new advertising campaign. Criticized as “shaming” teen parents, that doesn’t seem the purpose. Instead, Mayor Bloomberg is attempting to alert dreamy-eyed adolescents that teen parenting is fraught with hazards that exist in objective reality. Teen parenting isn’t necessarily wrong, but it’s smart to make an informed choice.
On Tricky Questino #4, conflicting research can be cited about marriage, poverty, single parenthood, divorce. Whether or not to be partners, or married, or commit to any one relationship — this is such a personal, situational choice.
If you are currently making such a choice for yourself, what can I offer you by way of an aura reading perspective? Spiritually and energetically, something powerful happens to help a couple evolve when there is a marriage ceremony, wheter a civil or religious marriage commitment. I wrote about what I observed happening spiritually during marriage ceremonies in “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.” The quick version? If you make the commitment of a legal marriage — assuming that your kind of marriage is legal — you may evolve faster spiritually, compared to a partnership.
What if you hate marriage as an institution? Perhaps you still cringe at the example set by your parents. Perhaps you suffered through a horrid divorce of your own.
Consider cutting those cords of attachment. Without cord-cutting, those patterns will replay 24/7 in your aura and subconscious mind. By now, Blog-Buddies, you surely understand that using skill at cord-cutting will produce permanent results for each cord removal.
You might have very significant reasons related to finances or property or other objective reality considerations. Just, please, don’t slip-slide into thinking that “Marriage means nothing.” Energetically and legally, the choice is a very big deal, carrying major consequences now and for your future.
5. Are you in charge of your life or not?
Whether householder or renunciate, you have a very big philosophical choice about your personal desires, ideas, goals.
Do you want to live a life of surrender, spiritually? Many a spiritual seeker makes life into a kind of guessing game, asking Jesus or angels or signs and synchronicities to provide guidance. It’s a very sweet path, not being in charge but instead being in flow.
When choosing, though, think it through. You might decide, one’s personal ideas, dreams, and interests are not some inconvenient nuisance. Making choices for yourself can be considered part of your spiritual evolution; in which case, consequences become way more informative.
Compare that to the path of GLADYS, a woman whose aura I just researched for a client today. Far as I could tell, GLADYS lives in a sweet state of spiritual surrender/spiritual addiction right now. As part of GLADYS’s surrender experience, she has four angelic guides who rotate, telling her what to do.
GLADYS’s life has become defined around obedience, finding the messages and following them.
Such an interesting way to live! However, details of her personal life don’t seem especially informative. Having a rather spaced-out way of connecting to objective reality, sprinkled lavishly with disdain, GLADYS’s current path may not be as beautiful as she thinks. Reading a variety of her chakra databanks, not just one or two, with Stage Three Energy Literacy, guess what? Apart from the beauty of spiritual surrender, GLADYS’s human choices and consequences don’t count for much, except in the context of obedience.
My opinion here, for what it’s worth? God really can handle human use of free will. Why not give it a vigorous try?
What if some choices that don’t work out? Those, a person can call “Destiny.”
In short, you don’t really have to sit around waiting for your marching orders from fate. Unless that is your current preference.
Have you thought about which way you choose to live now? Otherwise you might fall into someone else’s ideal, one that doesn’t really suit you at this time on your own journey of personal development.
6. Does your (current) name help you or hurt you?
Most controversial on our list, this question isn’t for everyone. It isn’t trendy — yet — to research what your name does to your aura.
Yet, to this aura reader, it’s a fact.
- Your first name, middle name, and last name may help you a lot to fulfill your purpose in life.
- Or not.
- Or very much not.
By researching the impact of your name on chakra databanks, you can find out. You can answer that question. You can celebrate your current name or change your name legally and dramatically improve your life, as appropriate.
Appropriate naming for your soul expression is especially important if your path of personal development has moved you into some really big shifts, such as virtual reincarnation. (“Virtual reincarnation” means changing so much, within this one lifetime, that it is almost like grafting a completely new and more evolved version of your human identity onto what has gone before.)
Whether you use my technique of Thrill Your Soul Aura Research or some other resource, consider using the best method at your disposal. It amazes me how many people believe, “The unexamined life is not worth living,” Yet never once has there been a question about that ill-fitting old name.
7. God’s child or God’s grownup?
Two, at least two, very different paths are available in spiritual development.
“God child” is a path of surrender, always being on the lookout for what you are meant to be or do or feel or learn.
“God’s grownup” means that you set a personal agenda. You decide your growth priorities, as in setting YOUR intention for a session of Energy Spirituality, making YOUR New Year’s Resolution, setting YOUR own personal goals.
If things happen in ways you did not expect, that is where you can call it “Fate.” And then you can go back to using your free will appropriately.
Two very different ways of life will follow as a consequence. You might do them in sequence. Just don’t try to do them simultaneously, an awkward back-and-forth.
Your answer, to any of our seven questions in today’s post can help you gain clarity and a sense of purpose as you move forward on your personal path of spiritual development.
Ultimately there really isn’t one CORRECT answer for anyone, just your answer for now. Even with our first two questions here.
Dare to choose your answers for now. Leave the rest for later. But when you do answer a question, congratulate yourself. By committing to your way of having this human life, you will move faster and futher on your personal path to Enlightenment.
