Aura Reading Book Review from Enlightenment Coach DAVID BUCKLAND praises the power and accessibility of Rose Rosetree’s how-to books.
This article is cross-posted at DAVID’s blog, in2Deep. I am adding headings, minor copy edits, and a lot of thanks for this perceptive review of my two books on aura reading, as read by a man with a deep, rich background in spiritual development.
DAVID paraphrases and reframes what I offer in terms of, what else? DAVID’s own background and ways of thinking about deeper perception.
Aura Reading Book Review. DAVID’s Story
Over the years on this blog Ive talked about refined perception, the koshas or auras, and other aspects of our energetic nature. Recently Ive been talking some about Rose Rosetree and chakra databanks. This is a new and more applied exploration.
Ive been reading several of her books. In this article Ill be talking about two of them: Aura Reading Through ALL Your Senses and Read People Deeper.
Rose recommended I read Read People first but Id already found Aura Reading at a local bookstore. But her advice was good. Read People Deeper is a better starting point.
Even better would be an in-person workshop of hers in the Washington DC area. These are experiential techniques and learning them with others is certainly superior. But if thats not accessible, these books are the best resources Ive found on the subject.
Both are what geeks would call recipe books a little theory but mostly application. How-tos. However, the two books differ greatly in their focus. Read People is more What, Aura Reading more How. And therein lies why Read People should come first.
Aura Reading Book Review: “Read People Deeper”
Read People Deeper introduces you to three techniques:
- Body Language
- Face Reading (physiognomy), and
- Aura Reading.
Obviously, Aura Reading is the deepest but it can depend on the circumstance as to which is more suitable. The other techniques can also corroborate subtle perceptions and bring out other nuances. That certainly helps beginning aura readers. But Ill be focusing mostly on auras in this article.
Aura Reading Book Review: About “Seeing the Colours”
One of the most important ideas to move past for either book is that Reading auras is about being able to see colours.
Instead, its reading information via your subtle sense and intuitive modes. That may include colors but often doesnt.
While Ive started seeing the chakra databanks, thats not how Ive started reading them.
With Read People Deeper, the approach is to go over the simple techniques, then 3/4 of it is 50 things you can read with those techniques.
Fifty different chakra databanks you can read, and how to access them.
In other words, lots of ways to try it out and develop your skills.
Aura Reading Book Review: Surprises
What surprised me was how very simple the chakra databank reading techniques were. With the right approach and a few tips, the key became what and where to ask.
While you can certainly get lots of general information from an energy read, the detailed info is in specific chakra databanks.
You need to address the right chakra with the right question to read a specific chakra databank. Then relevant data just pops in, however you usually gain intuitive information.
Now, some people might be a little weirded about reading someone’s Personal information.
But this is not about their banking, its about what theyre broadcasting all the time and were reading subconsciously.
The shift here is making it more conscious and more skilled. Then were not relating in a sub-conscious reactive mode but rather a conscious, perceptive one. When we understand why a person is behaving as he is, we can relate much more smoothly.
Aura Reading Book Review: The Fun
Of course, part of the fun is reading yourself. It can be quite insightful, even amusing.
For example, I had once heard that my long earlobes meant virility. Rose tells me no, its stubbornness. (laughs)
Read People Deeper has 3 indexes, one for each type of information you can read: Body Language, Face Reading, Aura Reading.
I still have many more of the chakra databanks to try and am looking forward to the discoveries.
