BERNIE, who commented at this blog today, is hardly the only musician in our online community around Deeper Perception. Many of you Blog-Buddies are involved in the arts at a professional level, while others of you have talent in one or more of the arts. Still others of you are passionate fans.
Well, one of my clients, JOE, is a professional musician who requested a session of Aura Reading Research. JOE asked me to use Stage Four Energetic Literacy to research chakra databanks (nadis) on a colleague who is a professional singer, GLADYS.
This aura reading was heartbreaking. Blog-Buddies, if I hadn’t been protected energetically and emotionally by the preparation process used in the skill set for Aura Reading Through ALL Your Senses, I would have paused mid-session for a good, sobbing cry.
Do Talent and Skill Bring Fame?
Not necessarily? Hard work does not necessarily bring fame. Ambition does not bring fame, nor does “Being a material girl” — although that last part seems to have worked for Madonna, who has been recognized by Forbes as the top-earning performer worldwide in 2013.
Researching GLADYS, the pain of fame starvation showed right in her Root Chakra Databank for Presence in the Room.
- Huge talent was in evidence, plus enough charisma to amply fill the Albert Hall or any other concert venue.
- There was the soul of an artist, utterly dedicated to her work.
- There was an ability to co-create with the Divine while singing.
- Along with all this, there was chronic heartbreak because GLADYS’s career has not been big enough to suit her ambitions.
Sure, GLADYS is a respected professional singer. But how much fame is enough? How much fame today can ever be enough?
Extra-Insatiable Desire for Fame, Especially after The Shift
What, not enough names of the top of your head to fill those 60 minutes? Google on your favorite art forms or mega-successes at business or New Age celebs, etc. You could spend many a day just naming the names. Have there ever on earth been so much celebrities?
And did you ever think that one of your hobbies in life has been to learn names and trivia about famous people, as if that were really, really important?
Despite how big a deal fame is now, the craving for notoriety is crazy-misunderstood, especially after The Shift.
Partly, we have the post-Shift boom in technology — with our so-many devices for streaming entertainment.
Then we have how consciousness is evolving after The Shift into the Age of Awakening.
- For the 45% of folks in spiritual shutdown, fame matters more than ever — along with worldly honors, wealth, toys, and physical appearance.
- For the 45% of folks in spiritual addiction, many have been promised, “When you know your purpose, you will become rich and famous.” A horrible fantasy, wildly unrealistic — yet addictive. And a bread-and-butter fantasy for many in New Age, evangelical Christianity, and other groups.
- Even for those of us in the remaining 10%, with a firm purchase on reality while progressing fast spiritually, fame can be intensely confusing.
Attention Deficit Disorder in Collective Consciousness
Let’s face it, America and other industrialized nations have a collective attention deficit disorder.
- You’ll see dates where both parties sit in the fine restaurant, texting other people.
- You’ll see folks at the checkout counter in stores, never speaking once to the cashier, busily gabbing away on their mobile.
- You’ll see families and friends (ostensibly) together in public, paying only scant attention to each other while occupying themselves with electronic toys.
- You’ll hear about business meetings and college classes where those in charge can barely get attention, so busy the participants are with checking for messages, playing games, multi-tasking with electronic media.
- New York is now setting up texting zones, rest stops for drivers to pull over and text. Because as you know if you drive anywhere in America, so many drivers aren’t paying attention to traffic, not while they can talk on their phones or text whatever to whomever.
Folks, that’s what I mean by an attention deficit disorder in collective consciousness. And the worse it gets, the more human beings crave attention. It’s only human to want some attention from other people, full attention.
Seeking craving for attention, in a culture that increasingly favors fame and vanity? You and those you know are being set up to desire fame as no previous generation has ever desired it.
What if longing to score a reality TV show doesn’t obsess you? What if you do not yearn to get discovered by someone, for something, anything?
What if you have not managed to upload a YouTube that makes you important to millions? You know, like Rebecca Black’s extremely important music video that has been seen more than 58 million times.
Does that make you a failure living today? No, it makes you remarkably sane.
Fame Remains Linked to Karma (As Always, on Earth)
Big fame is a gift. Also a test. Fame is one of the most intense illusions here on earth.
Fame is a gift, a form of destiny or meant-to-be.
In this way, fame is like exceptional physical gorgeousness, superb athletic ability, intellectual brilliance, creative genius, immense popularity, charisma. Or being born really, really rich.
If you have fame, you earned it. Any of these qualities, present to a huge, world-class degree? You earned it before incarnating this time.
Of course, free will matters. Yet free will has limits.
With your free will now, you are setting up consequences for the rest of this lifetime, plus future lives. Potential fame included.
Mozart learned to play that harpsichord long before he impressed his family at age three. Every music prodigy or business prodigy has earned it. Lifetime after lifetime, who knows how many lifetimes? Lifetimes of persistence, learning, caring, doing good work, and receiving modest (or little) popular recognition.
Long as we’re taking a little interlude in this article for spiritual truth, let’s name the elephant in the big, glitzy Green Room of Fame:
Fame is a challenge.
Here at this blog we have often observed the huge challenge of fame in our celebrity aura readings and Skilled Empath Merges. Also we have profiled celebrities with difficulties at handling fame in some of our comparison face reading articles, doing physiognomy and the system of Face Reading Secrets(R) to research natural changes to physical faces over time, using photographs.
Fame is a huge challenge, not necessarily a treat at all.
Sunlight focused through a magnifying glass? It burns.
Unreasonable Expectations about Fame
Once I had a conversation about fame with G.G., an otherwise intelligent woman who worked in a New Age specialty. She believed what many New Age celebrities had proclaimed about how important it was to find your life purpose and then you would receive all that you wanted automatically. Which, to G.G., meant fame and wealth.
“Use your common sense,” I told her. “Do the math. How many slots do you think there are in the world for Big Fame?”
“But if you only believe, you can make it real,” she told me, her big round eyes shining.
Really? If you only believe strongly enough, the Top 10 List will have room on it for you and all the rest of the true believers?
Thinking about that long-ago conversation, I could STILL be slapping my head with incredulity. This is one of the conversations that motivated me to write a how-to that debunks Law of Attraction hype and offers ways to become more successful that really work, on earth, including after The Shift.
Yet among the vast collections of maya on earth, fame remains a big one. I’m surprised it isn’t more famous that way. 😉
So what if you would like to pry yourself loose from the pull of this insatiable desire for fame, so intense all around you? What makes a great substitute for unrealistic striving for fame?
Instead of Seeking Fame, Consider these Five Alternatives
- Live with honor. Act with integrity.
- Find some things to do every day that interest you, and do your reasonable best at them. Meanwhile, don’t resent your day job. It’s necessary. If you like it or love it, so much the better. Still, you don’t have to adore your day job in order to do it with integrity and benefit from the security it provides. There’s a wise word from Hinduism and Buddhism about this very concept, dharma.
- Set goals, meaningful goals, for your life. Then follow up, in a way that is kind to yourself.
- Help someone, at least one someone, every day. Preferably do this in energetic real time, in person or on the phone. Electronic connections like email or even this blog are very thin, energetically. You don’t store energetic holograms from them, for instance — a significant point for those of you who are thoughtful about what it means to make the most of a human incarnation.l
- Learn to value internal validation, rather than external validation. In other words, use your self-authority to decide what is true and important.
Nobody ever became Enlightened by crowd sourcing.
Healing Also Helps Reduce Fame Cravings
Back at GLADYS, what was so terribly poignant about her stifled yearning for fame?
She directed this frustration within. Besides a horrible sadness, GLADYS blamed herself for the lack of fame. I suspect she blamed herself for being too fat — not fulfilling The Anorexic Ideal.
GLADYS could really use some healing with energy spirituality techniques. Cords of attachment, negative thought forms, hideous distortions in façade bodies, frozen blocks of stuck energy — STUFF can recycle in a person’s subconscious mind and aura, intensifying the yearning for fame.
How important it is that STUFF can always, always, always, always be healed. With Rosetree Energy Spirituality, we can heal every one of the previously mentioned forms of STUFF, then receive appropriate PUT IN to help make that healing permanent. All GLADYS would do as a client to receive this sort of healing? Just bring an intention to her session of aura healing, perhaps an intention like “Accept reality better.”
STUFF around fame, how common is that? Also STUFF perpetuating distorted, confused ideas about why that big fame hasn’t happened yet. That mathematically impossible, yet culturally huge idea that “Everyone be famous, mega famous, a superstar.”
Andy Warhol had it right. We get 15 minutes, folks. Most of us get just that. 15 minutes.
If more fame time for everyone was important, trust me. Even better, trust your own common sense. God would have created this world differently.
