Here is how Blog-Buddy SUZ explained her choice to me, her request for energetic literacy to explore bestselling author Dean Koontz:
After reading about two an a half of his books, I fell in love with his stories, but what struck me most was his underlying theme, and it is in all of his books. Even in the midst of horror, loss, even hell, people can find acceptance, love, and especially redemption, as long as they do not give up.
I don’t know how to explain this …
After reading a few of his newer books, I got hold of an early work, and when I turned the book over to the back side, there was his photo and it hit me like a punch.
There was a dead man if I ever saw one — bleak. I’ll probably never know for sure, but I bet that Dean Koontz’s writing eventually saved his own life and sanity. He sure looks much more alive today!

- To research Dean Koontz along with me, here is the photo I used as a basis for the Skilled Empath Merge. Thanks to PETA for an article rich in unintended irony, in which this photo appears. Koontz, often photographed with his dog, is lambasted here as Anti-Animal.
- And here is a saved, dependable version of the same Deen Koontz photo complete with chakra databanks.
Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Connecting to Physical Reality
I chose this first chakra databank because of SUZ’s interest in overcoming problems and surviving.
Not a highly sensitive person. So of course not an empath. Dean is in the majority of humankind, regarding sensitivity. Physical objects and the rest of physical reality are very much more important than the likes of Rose Rosetree or, probably, you.
Fills the room. Exceptionally observant. Material objects are very vivid to Dean Koontz in their weight and heft, almost having power over people by virtue of their solid and incontrovertible reality.
Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra for Sharing Power
This databank is about compromising with other people. Again, to find one’s way back from feeling dead, from powerlessness and isolation, human beings are most likely to do this when they are able to engage with other people without being either tyrants or victims.
19 feet. While in his own novelist’s world, Dean Koontz is superb at sharing power. Why did I preface the last sentence with “While in his own novelist’s world”?
Important Context for this particular Skilled Empath Merge
The novelist has a way of living while he writes, using the awesome power of his imagination, to create an entire world that seems totally real to him. At the time of this posed photograph, he is feeling as if in that comfortable space.
This publicity photo was not taken while Dean Koontz was hunting around in his refrigerator for a quick lunch. This is him in the exalted role where he writes novels that seem real to others.
I won’t keep repeating this distinction throughout the rest of this Skilled Empath Merge. It’s just useful to remember that a publicity shot does not tell you what someone is like in the shower, having a fight with his significant other, or foraging in his fridge for leftovers that haven’t gone bad.
We all deserve to be viewed in our glory, especially for this sort of Skilled Empath Merge.
Okay, back to that Chakra Databank about Power Sharing
In his novels, Dean Koontz can arrange power dynamics, success, and the ability to overcome obstacles. He finds it a healing exercise to have a main character robbed of all power, then regaining his footing.
Dean tends towards extremes: No power. Back to having power as a victor. Well-plotted steps along the way.
Blog-Buddies, you know how sporting events have a physical scoreboard. Evidently Dean Koontz has his own internalized, analytical version of that scoreboard. It is personally freeing for him to set up a game, keep track, make sure there is a resounding victory by the end of his novel.
Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra for Self-Esteem
Is it possible to be a superb novelist, helping other people to feel self-esteem, without doing so well with this personally? Let’s find out if this is part of the aura picture for Dean Koontz?
11 inches. There’s a kind of sickish feeling inside, as if not sure he really deserves all his success and might be found out some day.
However, this chakra databank also reveals reserves of toughness and survivorhood.
In particular, Dean Koontz has vast confidence in himself in the role of underdog. If his worst fears came true, he knows he could pick himself up again and not give up.
Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra for Solving Problems
15 miles. In any fictional world, Dean Koontz knows himself to be resourceful. He can solve problems, help his characters claim victory.
Ingenuity helps this man triumph over intellectual puzzles. So long as a problem or life situation is viewed analytically, Koontz knows that he can find THE solution.
What does the showing in this chakra databank reveal about the writer’s ability to solve everyday human problems? Nothing. Reminder: He’s in a publicity picture, folks.
Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Giving Love
90 feet. Does this man ever know how to broadcast love! Sweetness! Nonjudgmental caring about everyone who is open to receiving Dean Koontz’s distinctive and generous gift of unconditional love.
Dean Koontz’ warm-heartedness is enough to turn my own heart turn to mush.
In this photo, however, he is broadcasting love as a public figure, as what I call a “World Server.” In this role as a writer, this very private man feels very comfortable helping underdogs, providing solace to readers, helping them not to give up.
Koontz revels in his work as a World Server. One could almost imagine him choosing the tough parts of his Life Contract expressly to prepare him to do the kind of writing in which he specializes, inspiring Blog-Buddy SUZ and so many others.
Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Receiving Love
8 inches. Even in a publicity photo, taken because the man has demonstrated the ability to write novels that make him loved, guess what?
Dean Koontz finds love hard to accept. He needs life to be complicated. He prefers living in the world of his head to living in the world of his heart. Which territories would be in that world of his head?
- Plotting novels.
- Analyzing life.
- Analyzing what people do.
- Analyzing how to outsmart nefarious actions and triumph over people who do awful things.
- Analyzing his feelings.
- Replaying past incidents that have upset him, perhaps in the belief that this gives him great material for future novels.
Receiving love, even his role as a World Server? Not easy for Dean Koontz at the time of this photograph.
Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra for Asking for What You Need and Want
6 inches. Before going into details, let’s add perspective. So many of this writer’s Throat Chakra Databanks are doing great. Notably:
- Throat Chakra Databank for Communicating to Gain Respect
- Throat Chakra Databank for Communicating to Move People’s Emotions
- Throat Chakra Databank for Communication During Conflict
I have chosen this particular chakra databank because it has such relevance to who the man is humanly. “Asking for What You Need and Want” is not a World Server-type chakra databank. This one is so quintessentially human that even during this publicity photograph, the chakra databank reveals Dean Koontz, the man, rather than Dean Koontz, the acclaimed novelist.
STUFF dominates. Old feelings of loss, of failure, and regret.
Demonstrably a novelist with first-rate success, name recognition, exceptional talent — that doesn’t heal STUFF in the chakra databanks of Dean Koontz.
And maybe he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Reminds me of the Boatman model for seeking Enlightenment. “I won’t allow myself to attain my next big level of fulfillment unless, first, I have served all the others.”
And I thought SUZ was the winner of our recent contest. 😉
That was my expectation, delivering this detailed reading of Dean Koontz. Little did I suspect that while delivering her prize, I would win too, falling in love with this noble World Server, Dean Koontz.
