Deeper Perception Made Practical

Skilled Empath Merge with Academy Award Winner Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey, ready for his movie review done with Skilled Empath Merge

Winner #1 of our recent contest was MADELINE. We corresponded by email. Here is how she explained her choice of Matthew McConaughey for this aura reading  movie review for an Oscar nominee — and in McConaughey’s case, Oscar winner!

Why Madeline Wonders About Matthew McConaughey’s Aura and Acting

I choose Matthew McConaughey.  He was someone I did not like at all before.  He seemed so cocky and full of himself.  Whenever he was photographed it was sans shirt, working out, or hanging out with his friends picking up women.

I thought the same “I’m too cool” persona permeated his acting as well, so I avoided his movies.   But then I heard so much about his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club “that I decided to give it a try.  His physical transformation and acting were pretty impressive.

Then I watched his small role in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”  Pretty amazing,  mesmerizing.

His Oscar acceptance speech further served to change my perception (surface only) of him.   He seems to love his family; he thanked God first; and I sensed a humility there not present before.

Of course these are all surface perceptions without actually reading deeper so it will be so interesting to find out if my surface perceptions match what you find at the level of his aura.

Thank you so much Rose.  Can’t wait to see what you find.

Hooray, Let’s Get Ready for Some Skilled Empath Merge

So what if this year’s Oscars are over? Winning an Academy Award does not necessarily correlate with earning Chakra Change Points, as I will evaluate them in today’s exercise in energetic literacy. Oscars are given for many reasons. Whereas this aura reading research is the movie criticism of the Third Millennium, fascinating to those of use who seek truth, even unto its innermost parts.

To learn more about the process I will be using to compare the actor’s aura in the nominated role to the performer’s more usual energy field — that subconscious level of personal transformation that even most world-class actor’s can’t manage, see the Rose Rosetree’s Aura Reading Movie Reviews for Oscar Nominees… and a Contest.

The Film: “Dallas Buyers Club.” Matthew McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, a man diagnosed with HIV who finds a way to obtain the drugs that the government and the pharmaceutical companies are refusing to supply.

In honor of MADELINE’s special request, I will also compare the actor to himself back in 2011. Using that picture at the top of today’s article!

Did Matthew McConaughey really change much over the years? Comparing him in his role as himself in 2011, then with 2014? That can tell us a lot.

Here are the photos we’ll use for today’s exercise in energetic literacy:

Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Presence in the Room

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2011

25 feet. Sex appeal is so important to this man. Both a strong gift innately and also intensified by his values, interest, and character.

The man is largely identified with his sexiness, with an appeal that is both androgynous and very memorable to those on his wavelength.

Matthew McConaughey is also a very social man, deriving his sense of importance largely from the reactions that other people have to him (and his sexiness).

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2014

14 feet. Smashed up and put together again, his sense of physical self, impacting his presence in the room.

The ordeal of losing so much weight, and what that starvation process did to his nervous system, has a lot to do with the personal growth. Matthew McConaughey possesses athletic talent and physical intelligence. Plus he has a will of steel. Pushing himself to transform the body in such an extreme way, and suffer the psychological and physical repercussions, has changed him. He is still in recovery from this protracted, self-inflicted (for work) health trauma.

About the weight loss, he told one reporter, “I lived like a bit of a hermit for four months and ate just fish and a cup of vegetables in the morning, and tapioca pudding…. I just lost a lot of power and strength.” McConaughey told another reporter: “I was always hungry, and irritable. My body resembled a baby bird with its mouth open, crying, ‘Feed me, feed me,’ and you realise momma bird ain’t going to feed you. It’s hard.”

That, of course, is the version told for public consumption. Self-starvation, undergone with such high stakes? Way more complicated than not having a mother bird come to bring tasty worms to your beak.

It will be interesting to do the acting aura reading research comparison to come, because I don’t experience change to the actor related to playing that role. (Sometimes, I’ve read, a movie role will linger in an actor’s consciousness for a very long time.)

It has been a triumph of will for Matthew McConaughey to become so dangerously thin. Remember, the camera adds 10 pounds.

Incidentally, here is another link to the gaunt appearance of the actor in “Dallas Buyers Club.”

I do notice the influence of alcohol in his system, a way of “putting himself together again” and “relaxing” — hopefully this is just related to the occasion, or weeks gearing up for this big public broadcast. It’s not that he’s drunk at this time, more that there has been quite a bit of drinking in the actor’s lifestyle. Seems to me.

Blog-Buddies, researching Matthew McConaughey in this role, it is important to do the full Preparation Process for any technique I have taught you for aura reading or Skilled Empath Merge. Otherwise you might be distracted by the cadaverous appearance, enhanced by makeup and lighting — quite a terrifying experience for you as a person, including your mirror neurons.

16 feet. Trying to act uncomfortable, like a deeply insecure person. Playing the part of a man who is desperate.

Aw, this actor is trying so hard, all the way down to a subconscious level. He is trying so very hard, although still being the man who has been winsome and adorable his whole life, winning admiration without even trying.

Chakra Databank Change Points

1/2. Matthew McConaughey is trying so very hard to inhabit his role emotionally, not just physically.

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Sex Appeal

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2011

Fills the room plus two inches. Matthew McConaughey has that oomph and he works it by not appearing to notice the reaction he produces in others. It is a “Mr. Cool” style of attractiveness, a lifelong gift.

Others might find this difficult to handle, or balance with the rest of his personality.

But for this man, an entire career has been built on the easy-breezy sex appeal. At this chakra databank right now, it goes unquestioned. He’s lucky. He’s charming. As a result, he doesn’t have to work hard in life.  And he’s fine with that.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2014

Fills the room. Jumpy. High-strung.

Evidently the actor is struggling a bit to get back to normal. The old easygoing way of being in his body, the sexual confidence, has been traumatized.

He’s still coming back to normal. And normal may never be the same. Even though he played a straight character in “Dallas Buyers Club,” evidently he went very deeply into exploring extreme pain of problems related to sexual orientation, doing this while undergoing the self-inflicted trauma of semi-starvation.

The actor has been deeply imprinted and, at the time of this photo, has not found a way to heal the pain and confusion… other than having the occasional alcoholic drink.

Wow, Matthew McConaughey has paid dearly for this Oscar!

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself as Ron

Fills the room plus 2 inches. Still sexy, outrageously appealing to women and men on his wavelength. This is the loveable appeal of a man who is such a mess, yet you could fall in love with him and crush on him madly even though it makes no sense at all.

The actor just doesn’t know how to live or breathe without exuding that massive sex appeal. He’s trying.

Chakra Databank Change Points

1/4 for effort. There is an overlay of being in bad shape over his usual sex appeal — some credit is due.

Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Emotional Giving

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2011

3 inches. Pretty darned self-absorbed at the time of this photograph, Matthew McConaughey is used to being adored. To him, at this time, even a little gesture of kindness or interest… from him, The Big Star With The Huge Sex Appeal… to him, paying attention to anyone is a HUGE FAVOR.

A GREAT HONOR.

AN ENORMOUS GIFT.

Which he does (every teensy-tiny bit of it) because he doesn’t have a big ego (he thinks) and is such a regular, down-to-earth guy (he thinks).

No malice is intended, any more than emotional stinginess. This is just a regular guy, pretty simple, extremely NOT introspective, and enjoying the lifestyle that goes with his fame and good looks and, oh yes, sex appeal.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2014

3 inches. In this moment, Matthew McConaughey feels emotionally expansive, exceptionally grateful.

However, he still has not developed subconscious level circuitry (not removed astral-level STUFF) in order to give much emotionally.

Note that shakra databank size: 3 extra-grateful inches.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself as Ron

5 inches. More emotional giving than usual for the actor. He is supposed to be a good person, altruistic and noble, under stress.

“He is supposed to be” is the nuance to this chakra databank. Not “I am.”

This is acting, folks.

Chakra Databank Change Points

1/4 point. Some variation to the size and a big, subconscious attempt to experience life in a different way.

Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Emotional Receiving

Out to the moon. The man expects to be adored. Has been, evidently, since being the cute little boy with the Permanent Dimples. (Not that we would use Face Reading Secrets(R) officially on somebody younger than 18 years old. Just noticing unofficially. 😉 )

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2014

Out to the moon. More than ever, Matthew McConaughey feels like one of the world’s darlings.

This time, he feels a bit more as though he has worked hard, compared to earlier in his career.

He feels as though he has done something noble, bestowed a great gift upon the world thanks to his performance.

Recently we had a lively conversation at this blog about 7 Reasons Why We Love the Movies. (And do movies really bring healing, or are we fooling ourselves?)

My belief, based in experiences facilitating sessions of Rosetree Energy Spirituality? Pop culture tells us that movies do heal, do help significantly. Sometimes the idea gets pretty sanctimonious, actually. As though a sympathetic portrayal of folks in the LGBTQ community, compounded by the tragedy of AIDS, will really help people.

A shift to collective consciousness, emotional releasing in the direction of old-fashioned catharsis, some triggering of frozen blocks of stuck energy? That ain’t nothing. But I’m not convinced that this matters as much to folks outside Hollywood as to the Oscar-voting community.

Admittedly, that’s my perspective, from my line of work. Certainly it’s understandable if Matthew McConaughey has a very different perspective, given his line of work.

And wouldn’t it be great if a movie like “Dallas Buyers Club” could change the hearts and minds of those who still believe that AIDS is God’s punishment for being gay.

Back to today’s Skilled Empath Merge, this chakra databank, Oscar winner McConaughey feels as though he deserves to receive more than ever. Because he has done something so wonderfully important to help people, along with how much personal discomfort and emotional wrenching he has undergone when earning his Oscar.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself as Ron

Fills the room plus 2 inches. People adore him, they just do.

His fellow actors in the scene pictured in the photo, two guys playing policemen, are in such awe of Matthew McConaughey. They’re practically weak at the knees.

It’s the usual with people. They go gaga over him.

Subconsciously, energetically, it’s a comfort to Matthew McConaughey as he plays this demanding role. If there are sentient humans in the room, most of them are going to be oozing admiration for him. This keeps him in balance.

As an actor, it doesn’t really occur to him to live a different way or pretend or experience. Ordinarily a troubled man, with terminal illness, being hassled by the police would NOT be adored. Yet how would Matthew McConaughey know this? He has been a big movie star, and adored by so many, for so long.

For him to NOT receive loads of love and admiration? This would be like not breathing.

Chakra Databank Change Points

Not really. Not for any change to this particular chakra databank.

Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra for Communicating to Gain Respect

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2011

Fills the room. More good karma in this lifetime for Matthew McConaughey. Without having to move a muscle, inwardly or intellectually, he simply commands attention.

His whole life, he has been this golden boy, loved and admired.

Nothing in this Skilled Empath Merge so far has provided a clue about how Matthew McConaughey has personally interpreted this aspect of life’s illusions, where seemingly he is favored above others, so very special.

Personally, I find it very useful to think in terms of reincarnation, including the notion of karma. Seems to me, this specialness has been earned in other lifetimes where — quite probably — he worked way harder and sacrificed a lot in order to earn the effortless, beguiling quality prized by so many.

Incidentally, the “Commands attention” quality is more sex appeal. It isn’t charisma, intelligence, great wisdom, or a blazing connection to the Divine — qualities that some other performers (and non-performers) can show at this chakra databank.

It’s a simple gift, perhaps more appealing to the masses who don’t necessarily care about intelligence, wisdom, or spiritual evolution. Because, to them, sex appeal is the ultimate value, the greatest thrill.

What matters most in life? Such a loaded question. The answer depends upon one’s state of consciousness, plus choices and personal preferences. For so many people, hello! Sex is what sells.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2014

15 feet. Sweetly proud of himself, Matthew McConaughey feels that he has done something important to gain respect as a communicator.

Remember, Blog-Buddies, I’m exploring his subconscious self within this chakra databank. Empath merge is different from conjecturing that, sure, he would feel this way — especially after receiving such a significant, super-public acknowledgment.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself as Ron

3 inches of self-pity. Here the actor turns in a performance as someone who isn’t getting enough respect.

It’s a sulky kind of reaction, as though Matthew McConaughey is drawing on that portion of his life experience where people have not treated him as nicely as he has felt that he deserved.

Chakra Databank Change Points

1 I will accord a point although it’s such a workaround kind of acting. One of the joys of aura reading movie reviews is when an artist devises a role, replete with creative nuance, and then lives it all the way down to the chakra databanks.

This is an actorly approximation. “I feel bad” and not necessarily in a way that fits the character or the plot. Yet it is a shift, and may be noted as such by the audience.

Aura Reading Databank at the High Heart Chakra for Soul Thrill (Expressing His Soul)

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2011

18 feet. Posing, in this moment, Matthew McConaughey is at peace with himself, comfortable in his career.

That isn’t always the case for him, these days. It is a burden being so famous and having complete strangers freak out over him. He tries to handle it gracefully, but often finds it wearisome. It has grown old, after all these years of being so famous.

In this particular moment, however, the star is comfortable in his own celebrity skin. He enjoys the attention and fame. It feels to him as if he was born for this. Why not enjoy it?

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself in 2014

22 feet. The amount of soul thrill being expressed does not mean  that the quality in this chakra databank is all sweetness and light. Joyful acknowledgement pumps up the soul thrill for Matthew McConaughey, receiving his huge public triumph.

However, there is an underlying self-doubt, as though he cannot go back to the more shallow version of life that he had for so much of this incarnation.

The man has grown, opened up, begun more of a quest for personal growth. It’s unsettling for him, with an uncomfortable (though also spiritually gorgeous) feeling of inner hollowness that pushes him to keep striving, keep growing.

Skilled Empath Merge with Matthew McConaughey as himself as Ron

14 inches. Matthew McConaughey is having a great time portraying this character. It is such fun to sacrifice himself and “Truly become” this tormented, noble character.

Chakra Databank Change Points:

Not really.

Conclusion

Total Chakra Databank Change Points for Matthew McConaughey

2 out of 6

Matthew McConaughey has worked really hard on himself in order to play this demanding role. He has starved his body and experienced big aftershocks throughout his entire mind-body-spirit system.

In the interviews quoted earlier in this post, he didn’t describe having deep survival fears come up or terror or other consequences of all the self-starvation. He made it sound more like an easy little experiment, like eating his tiny daily spoon of tapioca from a really small spoon for the fun of making it last. I wonder how much he consciously noticed about the process of great change and personal vulnerability that was set in motion.

Not every actor has inner depths. Matthew McConaughey has charm and sex appeal. And that has been enough to make him a major heartthrob to many.

To this profiler of celebrity auras, it is interesting how hard the actor has worked on himself physically. In order to be nominated for the Oscar, he had to learn his lines, deliver them forcefully and credibly. He had to hit his marks, take direction, do so many technical things.

Most people do not notice (yet) what happens on the level of chakra databanks. Besides, only the truly world-class performers change all the way down to the level of their chakra databanks.

Researching Matthew McConaughey, I have had the privilege of witnessing the experience of a man still in  considerable spiritual shutdown, but with such striving and sweetness. Lovely!

May this role help to move collective consciousness among the majority in America who share his sort of spiritual shutdown and, therefore, may trust a performance that depicts a man overcoming homophobia!

    Thank you so much Rose. Really Really interesting.
    Now I see that what I thought was humility was really just me picking up on the damage done to him psychologically , physically and spiritually by severely starving himself. Part of that “easy, breezing, sex appeal” not so easy breezy.
    I found it esp interesting that his brand of sex appeal did not include qualities like
    “charisma, intelligence, great wisdom, or a blazing connection to the Divine — qualities that some other performers (and non-performers) can show at this chakra databank”.
    That explains to me why I was not attracted to him at all. Why I actually found him unappealing.
    Just wonder what he will be left with when the inevitable loss of sex appeal happens. May make for a bitter old age.

    Madeline says:

    So Rose question and maybe the answer is obvious but would those also in spiritual shutdown as you found Matthew to be, respond more to his sex appeal???

    also everyone out there who has occasionally fallen into spiritual addiction it was really helpful for me to know that people who are spiritually shut down see those in spiritual addiction as “flighty, spacey etc” In short disrespect them. It helped me to know that, and then of course to stay out of Spiritual Addiction!!

    Rose thank you again for that beautiful, detailed aura reading. It certainly answered a lot of questions for me.

    MADELINE, thanks so much for appreciating this research, done in your honor.

    Your question in Comment 4 wasn’t necessarily obvious but a good question. I agree with you.

    Dana says:

    Wow, this whole reading was fascinating! I kept wondering what it’s like to live your entire life with that kind of adoration. But then I thought, well that adoration is largely based on sex appeal and came with little emotional giving. I’m not sure I would want that as karma. I guess it comes down to that question of what people value. And what kind of life experience they sign up for this incarnation. Maybe an adoration life would be nice:)

    How interesting, too, that doing this role has been a shift for him, even if not as big a one as I might have thought. But that is beautiful!

    And it’s an interesting idea that him being in spiritual shutdown and doing this role could have made the movie’s issues more accessible to more people.

    Allison says:

    Whoa, that is a thorough analysis! What you say about him ‘appealing to people on his wavelength’ was eye-opening for me; that must be why I’ve never found him attractive–I’m not on that wavelength!! What a travesty that he got the Oscar over Leo. There is no comparison.

    Elaine says:

    Rose, such a very interesting article. Not a follower myself of Mr. McConaughey. I believe I’ve seen one of his films. I guess it just feels there’s something too smooth going on there and it is not pulling me in enough to want to watch him as an actor. Luckily for him, he seems to have plenty of fans on his wavelength. 🙂

    Julie says:

    Such an interesting reading! I do hope in the long run that what the actor did to make the movie is worthwhile to him.

    It’s distressing to me to see and read about the damage he’s done to his system by starving himself. I hope he can heal the self-inflicted pain.

    I wonder if he chose to do it knowing that his karma and lifestyle will never provide that level of trauma, so it’s a way to experience something he never would otherwise.

    I can only speculate but maybe he felt stuck in his lifestyle and wanted to move things forward in a different direction so he could open up in new ways.

    He might have put that in the context of career change or opening up to new roles (drama over comedy), but there may be other aftereffects.

    Tehya says:

    SUCH an interesting, in-depth reading. I’ve never paid much attention to Matthew McConaughey or felt any personal attraction, but staring at those pictures I can certainly feel the easy-breezy sex appeal coming off of him.

    As Dana mentioned above, I’m also not sure I would want the kind of karma M.M. seems to have. But at the same time, it might be nice to have some of that effortless sex appeal, adoration, and success.

  12. 12
    Tehya says:

    I also appreciate him more after reading this. He may be a simple man and so very different from me or the type of person I usually admire, but he’s just being himself. There are lots of endearing details in your reading that evoke some “awww” feelings. It’s the kind of affection that comes with knowing someone deeper and just appreciating them for who they are.

    “…he didn’t describe having deep survival fears come up or terror or other consequences of all the self-starvation. ”

    This post helped me to recognize some of the weird symptoms I’ve been experiencing for the past couple of months. I need to eat! Thank you. I had a decent meal and I was bouncing around the house.

    I thought I was just experiencing complications of my new lifestyle or just over-thinking the nature of reality. Grew up fat and I’m still trying to work out the difference between actual hunger and cravings vs psychological hunger. Hint: If you get tired or you start craving the bland leftovers YOU ARE HUNGRY.

    The existential anxiety is the worst. (I’m OK! I’m Lost. Life is great! Soooo lost.) A lot of weird spiritual/energy hiccups now that I come to think of it. I hope it’s not too late for me to reverse some of the repercussions mentioned here.

    It’s never too late, OPAL. No repining!

    Angela says:

    I stood beside him at a restaurant bar many years ago. At first I hoped in a girlish way he might pay attention to me. Then I understood he certainly knew I was there but was deliberately NOT paying direct attention. Does that make sense? Overall it gave me the sense of someone immature, unkind, self-absorbed, and closed. The space around him repelled me. Texas may encourage backwardness sometimes. I also stood near George W. Bush and was creeped out in a similar way. With McConnaughey it was sleaze, with Bush it was a strange empty amorality. Both hid behind hood ol’ boyness.
