Deeper Perception Made Practical

Enter this Contest to Admire

Our latest contest is in honor of Elon Musk. Interviewed on “The Colbert Report.” Founder of Tesla Motors, among other visionary projects. Now he’s someone whose work I admire, with a fascinating aura as well.

Blog-Buddies, let’s add oomph to this month of August by starting a new contest about people you admire.

All of us need heroes. At least, our lives will be better if we pause to notice outstanding people, doing human-type things that we consider important. So nominate one per comment, with no limit to the number of entries that you can submit.

  • First prize will be both an aura reading AND a face reading of this admired individual.
  • Second prize will be either an aura reading OR a skilled empath merge.
  • Let today be a holiday… of admiration.

Contest deadline is August 31, 2014.

To Enter our Contest to Admire

  1. Name a public figure of any kind — inventor, politician, athlete, teacher, writer, business person, etc.
  2. Describe why you admire this person.
  3. Optional: Mention anything about that person’s physical face you’re curious about, useful for the physiognomy part of that first prize.
  4. Optional: Mention any area of life, or chakra databank that you’re curious about. Useful for the aura reading or skilled empath merge I’ll be doing for that first or second prize.
  5. Required: A one-click link to a photo that shows the face clearly from the front. Especially appreciated is a photograph that goes down to the waist. (More fun for the aura reading part of our prize.)

I admire all of you who enter the contest. Thanks for keeping this online community vibrant, lively, curious.

    The Tesla S is pretty amazing. All electric. Highest rated car with Consumer Reports ever. And they have to let gas cars get up to cruising speed before they start a race to be fair. Not to mention that they’ve opened the patents to jump start electric car manufacturing.

    They talked about SpaceX a little. Solar City…
    Great example for admirable.

    DAVID, how thoughtful of you to supply a link to the interview with Elon Musk. Thank you.

    Also, Blog-Buddies, in case DAVID’s Comment 2 didn’t do this justice, who are the “they” who allow patented discoveries about electric car manufacturing to be used by engineers worldwide? That “they” is Elon Musk.

    And this generosity has been done at a time when many high-tech companies are buying up patents as fast as they can to block the progress of competing organizations.

    I nominate John Oliver. He is a comedian, writer and actor who got his start on the Daily Show and now has his own show. I admire him because he manages to be a hard-hitting truth-telling reporter making incisive point after point, and while being hilariously funny. He always seems to be having so much fun. Gleeful, joyful, side-splitting fun. Just listening to his voice makes me happy. He writes his own material, one clever zinger after another.

    Here’s a photo of him:

    and here’s an example of his show:

    I’m curious about his soul-thrill because he seems to be having the time of his life.

    I would like to nominate Teal Swan. She is another spiritual teacher I follow and I admire her for her extrasensory insights about the world and for overcoming depression. Here is a photo

    I nominate T Boone Pickens, I admire him because although he is a billionare and older he has dedicated the rest of his life to finding an alternative fuel source and works tirelessly towards that goal.http://www.tboonepickensfoundation.org/photos-0120.asp

    I admire Olivia Newton-John. One of her songs gave me something to hold onto when I was suicidal in 9th grade, and I began to realize I liked all her music. I also admired her environmentalism.

    I went thru a period of deliberately copying her hair and clothing styles, which I grew out of; still, years later, I discovered she was on a New Age sort of path, not too long after I found myself on a similar one. So I feel a weird sort of link to her.

    I saw her in concert last year or the year before, and she’s still got it!

    Here’s a picture link:

    I hope that one works okay.

    Here is a photo:

    I am interested in his creativity– and his blocks.

    Thanks for considering!

    Stephen Fry – English actor, comedian, writer and presenter. People in the UK adore him.
    Presents a general knowledge quiz show – QI

    Open about being manic depressive, speaks up about gay rights as a gay person and his Jewish family are holocaust survivors. He’s known for mixing intellect with compassion.

    He does have a giant nose and an interesting lop-sided face.

    caitlin moran – columnist, writer of books, promotes feminism through humour

    A very honest person. Self taught as she was famously home-schooled by her unconventional parents. I remember reading her comic novel when I was a teenager myself, before she was well known. Her book, “How to be a woman” included a chapter about her positive experience of abortion. This was brave and something that needs to be talked about more openly.

    She’s just coming into her own in terms of being a writer. It’ll be interesting to see how she develops.

    She has the most awesome face. Though it’s difficult to find a photo when she’s not acting the clown.

    Her nose is her most interesting feature. Her eyebrows are plucked into an arc.

    Prof Maryam Mirzakhani fields medal winner in complex geometry. First female

    Pure maths is a very male dominated world and is very competitive. However, she looks like a calm, chilled out person. It’ll be interesting to see how she relates to abstract thought in her aura.

    I’d like to nominate Yves Behar, a visionary product designer. I nominated him for the Enlightenment list and learned that he’s not Enlightened, but is a molecular empath.

    http://images.bwbx.io/cms/2013-01-24/design_behar05__01inline__304x407.jpg

    I admire him for several reasons.

    He’s immensely talented and has created his own design firm, fuseproject.

    He takes on projects that support sustainability and the social good, like making cool, durable eyeglasses for poor Mexican kids. He’s been involved with the design of the rugged laptops supplied to kids in developing countries through the non-profit “One Laptop Per Child.”

    I really like his take on design in general, how it can be a force for good, for making the world a better place.

    Here’s a link to his TED Talk on Designing Objects That Tell Stories:

    I’d like to nominate Debra Ollivier, a writer whose work I just discovered.

    http://media.katu.com/images/FrenchWomen.jpg

    Here’s a back-up photo:
    https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1309353850p5/96486.jpg

    Ms. Ollivier wrote “Entre Nous” and “What French Women Know.”

    Here’s what I admire about her.

    She’s a wonderful, smart, and witty writer who shares astute observations about certain differences between French and American culture.

    She’s an American who married a Frenchman and lived in France for 10 years.

    There are several books out about French women, but this one is really more than just another book about why French women don’t get fat.

    Ms. Ollivier effectively points out basic choices typically made by French women that tend to highlight major cultural differences between France and the U.S.

    Her books are fascinating reads that are quite supportive of our conversational threads on living a grounded, human life. The kind of books you don’t want to end.

    I majored in French in college and lived in France for around 2 years total and these reads reminded me of those “French girl” aspects of my soul that had gotten somewhat squelched.Great fun to remember them and also quite empowering.

    I’d like to nominate the actress Emma Stone.

    http://www.clevver.com/tag/emma-stone-2014/

    I just saw her in Woody Allen’s new film, “Magic in the Moonlight,” which I enjoyed. Emma Stone and Colin Firth are delightful together in it.

    I get a kick out of Emma Stone’s sense of humor and she strikes me as being a talented actress. It would be interesting to see what’s up in her aura.

    Given her current popularity, is she trying hard, like other newer actresses we’ve learned about?

    I’d like to nominate another designer, Philippe Starck.

    He’s a French designer who’s designed a huge variety of products as well as interiors, including hotels.

    There’s often a quirky or whimsical aspect to his designs. In the lobby he designed in the Clift Hotel in San Francisco, there’s a hugely oversize chair, along with several other unique pieces that leave me grinning when I see them.

    I’d like to nominate Capt. Ron Johnson, of the Missouri Highway Patrol.

    https://twitter.com/erindelmore/status/500051395769565184/photo/1

    When the governor of Missouri removed the Ferguson police dept. from control of the charged situation in that town, Capt. Johnson was put in charge. The media reports that the atmosphere in Ferguson changed immediately.

    Capt. Johnson told the police to take off their gas masks and he walked along with the protesters. The photos shared are telling.

    He strikes me as a smart, brave, compassionate guy.

    I would like to nominate Anthony J. Adala, M.D., who is the Director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

    http://www.wakehealth.edu/assets/0/76/83/166/239/1602/3621/a779e66b-b851-4636-b52f-6ad4c3689dc7.jpg

    Dr. Atala lead the team that developed the first lab grown organ to be implanted into a human, and is continuing his work in cellular regeneration and printable organs. And all the while, continuing clinic hours in the Urology Department at Wake Forest. His accomplishments are way too many to list.

    I find his face interesting in general, but I am curious about his eyes.

    I also am curious as to whether this mega talented doctor and scientist has any empath gifts that are beneficial to his research.

    I nominate Dani Johnson, a woman of incredible talents and business acumen.
    She has an incredible rags-to-riches story, and now owns several multi million dollar companies. That’s the sensational news script. But the part that I find truly bautiful, is that she doe s an incredile amount of giving back.
    From creating the Kings Ransom foundation, and a few others, she uses their money for things like finding children who have been abducted into the pornography and sex trade industry and reuniting them with their families.
    She teaches people all over the world how to live debt free, to change from a poverty mentality to a 2%-er mindset. (the 2% wealthy). Learning these principles has changed mine and hubby’s life immensely the last few years.
    To top it off, she is one of the few Christians I have met seen who don’t drive me crazy. Genuine and kind. Before I offend anyone please know that I do believe in God, just not organized religion.
    I’m not sure what to ask for in a reading, as I’m not very familiar with chakras yet.
    A link to her picture is http://www.danijohnson.com

    I nominate Larry Gibbs, former IRS Commissioner:

    http://www.millerchevalier.com/OurPeople/LawrenceBGibbs

    Larry is amazing. He has been a fabulous mentor to me since the beginning of my career when he took me under his wing. I have learned so much from him, not just about the practice of tax law, but also how to live one’s profession, and one’s life, as well as one can, and with zest and verve. He is such a stand-up guy and a wonderfully sane voice who speaks out honestly and truthfully, but with great discernment, on even the most controversial tax matters. I believe he has no agenda other than to do what is right. I just love him.

    I am curious about his nose, which I think is really cool. (Not exactly a technical face reading term, but I’m going with it!)

    And I’m really curious about his throat chakra databank for truthfulness in public. My guess is that it’s magnificent.

    Hi Rose- thanks for offering this contest! I’d like to nominate a Steve Jobs face reading. He was so innovative, with a strong personality, I can only imagine how rich his face reading would be.

    I really admire his ability to innovate despite our society’s fear of failure. He wasn’t afraid to create something that he felt immense passion about.

    Thanks!

    Yes, this contest is now complete. Thanks for the excellent entries, everyone.

    This September, some fun readings will result.
