Deeper Perception Made Practical

Jason Collins Courage. Empath Merge

Jason Collins

Jason Collins Courage. Humanly and spiritually, I think this athlete deserves some kind of RES trophy.

Jason Collins Courage —  because he lived a lie in public for 12 years. Now he’s come out. You bet that’s courage. I’m here to award him own of the highest honors at my blog.

Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) doesn’t include giving out trophies. But I can honor Jason by giving him here a Skilled Empath Merge.

Collins played for the National Basketball Association. Presumed heterosexual until (last week). When he dared to come out as gay. The first openly gay professional player in one of America’s four major team sports.

Jason Collins. Secret Life GONE!

Hidden lives happen, especially when there are conflicts related to sex. And, from the perspective of energy spirituality, when there is STUFF at the subconscious and astral level, STUFF related to sex.

LGBT rights is the civil rights struggle of our era. Besides being thrilled at this latest courageous leadership by Jason Collins, and encouraged by the popular support for his courageous truth telling, I’m so thrilled to learn this news.

What a great opportunity, finding a photo of Jason Collins before his Sports Illustrated article. And official lie smashing! On April 29th, 2013.

Because that way I can explore the consciousness and read the aura of someone with pretty superb mental health, apart from living a lie. What a rare, fabulous, thrilling opportunity!

Jason Collins Courage. Tested.

Most folks in the news for having lived a lie are swindlers, murderers, psychopaths.

By contrast, here stands Jason Collins. A talented professional athlete:

  • Over seven feet tall
  • Healthy and handsome
  • Black and beautiful
  • And now living in a greater integrity than ever before in his famous career. A dream for so many. Being a professional athlete!

Why am I choosing Skilled Empath Merge rather than aura reading? It’s a more personal experience, and I trust Jason Collins already, based on what I’ve read about him.

Of course, I’m no unskilled, suffering empath. I’ve got skills. Thus, any empath merge is a choice, not my usual way of living.

Doing a Skilled Empath Merge, what if my very first experience of Jason Collins is upsetting? I’ll pull right out from that experience, do the First Aid Technique from “Empowered by Empathy,” then return for some regular Stage Three Energy Literacy in the form of regular, more-at-a-distance, aura reading.

Speaking of technical matters, here’s an invitation to you Blog-Buddies who are skilled empaths. Join me with doing some Skilled Empath Merge from the photo here or supply your own different photo, pre- or post-coming out.

Recommended: Use a dedicated technique of Energy Literacy, such as the aura reading from photos techniques in “Read People Deeper” or the “Magic Picture” technique for Skilled Empath Merge from a regular photograph in “Become The Most Important Person in the Room.”

Here is a good quality aura photo of Jason Collins. (Of course, to any aura reader or skilled empath, any person’s photo is an aura photo.)

Jason Collins Courage:

Root Chakra Databank for Relating to Physical Reality

1 foot. Compacted, intense focus. More aware of the basketball players around him than about himself. Acutely sensing every physical body on the court, distances and pursuits and quick changes, every movement in process, every potential movement. Maybe the sound of each person’s breath. Or the feel of it.

Blog-Buddies, I find it hard to express how thrilling in a human, animal way it is to be in Jason Collins’ awareness of his own body and physical reality while in the midst of this game.

Beyond integrity. Beyond caring about anything but the physicality of it all, with competition and a strong need for dominance built into the mix.

Jason Collins Courage:

Throat Chakra Databank for Verbal Integrity

3 inches. Jason Collins has the habit of hiding verbally, for sure.

It isn’t a creepy, slimy verson of hiding, such as I have found when doing aura reading or Skilled Empath Merge on spies. Or a legendary con artist I discussed at length on the radio yesterday, Bernie Madoff.

When it comes to full self-disclosure, verbally, Jason Collins has a way of going to sleep, or numbing himself.

Mostly this feels comfortable to him. Especially at a time like this, playing. In his glory.

Jason Collins Courage:

Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Power Integrity

Does Jason Collins follow through on doing what he says he will do?

2 inches. Numbness. Self-disgust. Hiding. Oops.

Here’s the fascinating part. Controversy alert, as well. I really don’t mean to offend with the following.

When people don’t have power, they can move into a certain kind of protective numbness. In collective consciousness, in America’s history following the horrific karmic experience of being a black male, whether as a slave or in a disadvantaged lifestyle resulting from color prejudice, there is a collective history of being spaced out, unaccountable, hopeless, not following through.

At the very extreme of powerlessness, behavior for some minority men was compounded by prejudice-laden judgment, giving rise to stereotypes about being “lazy, shiftless,” etc. And then perhaps taking on a life of its own, a cultural meme in collective consciousness.


What about someone forced to live a lie about sexual orientation? Especially someone with celebrity like Jason Collins? The hiding can feel raw and ever-present, like an infected wound that keeps opening up.


Essentially, he feels wounded and powerless in the background. On an ongoing basis. Patterning makes it automatic to sometimes slip and shift away, in personal life, as part of being selectively numb inside.

At the time of this photo, I suspect Jason Collins doesn’t follow through on things he says he will do (outside of his shining art form, basketball). Instead he may let himself seem to conform to a version of black culture for men of being too cool — or whatever — to follow through with action to support verbal commitments.

Jason Collins Courage:

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Spiritual Integrity

2 inches. Guilt blocks Jason Collins’ experience of the Divine.

It’s ironic, because the man wouldn’t feel so guilty if he didn’t care deeply about goodness and God.

Is the blockage in this chakra databank sexual guilt? Social guilt (as in living a lie)? Religious guilt, related to horrible things that Jason has heard church “leaders” say about homosexuality supposedly being “wicked” or optional?

This empath can’t tell. I’m stopping short in this Skilled Empath Merge. Personally, I don’t want to go there, sorting out the various flavors and proportions of guilt. It’s a sad mess at the time of this photo, ’nuff said.

Jason Collins Courage:

Belly Chakra Databank for Sexual Integrity

5 inches. This is the worst experience I have had yet of Jason Collins while living a lie about his sexual orientation, living a lie as a sports celebrity.

Feelings of guilt, of shame, of self-loathing? Yes indeed.

And since the context is Mr. Collins’ sexuality, these would be the most horridly deep versions of guilt, of shame, of self-loathing.

Oh, am I glad to know for sure as a healer that STUFF like this can always, always, always, always be healed.

Coming out in public will certainly help Jason Collins in many ways related to his conscious mind, then trickling down to his subconscious mind. I do hope that he will seek out additional healing as well.

    Wow, thanks for reading him. This is really fascinating.

    Thank you for naming the stuff about American black men. I’m grateful – I have compassion for that struggle for power, and it’s disconcerting to see without knowing what’s going on or what to do about it. (I guess you could say, observing black men who have this kind of stuff has made me feel powerless, or notice my own lack of power.)

    I think naming something, like you did here, goes a long way to healing it. It’s like breathing a sigh of relief, ‘Oh, we know what that is now.’ How can you heal something you can’t even properly observe?

    JORDAN, you’re so welcome.

    Deeper Perception is about perceiving, interpreting, naming. Reminds me of that saying, “Sunshine is the best disinfectant.”

    Dear Rose,

    I tried to look for the “First Aid Technique” about pulling out of skilled Empathic Merges safely in your Empowered by Empathy book. I couldn’t find it 🙁 Would you please direct me to it or elaborate how that works?

    Thanks so much!

    ANABELA, I’m glad you are exploring empath skills.

    In response to your question, it was more convenient for me to find the version of the technique in “Become The Most Important Person in the Room,” which is located in Day 5.

    One important suggestion for all your empaths is to go through either book in order, doing one technique at a time in the progression presented.

    This sequence will provide a more powerful way of using ANY of the techniques. Hope this helps.
