Deeper Perception Made Practical

Adorable, Asexual Tim Gunn Receives a Magnetize Money Profile

Aura reading Tim Gunn for success

Aura reading Tim Gunn for success

During a blog contest years ago, Grace W. wrote:

I’m interested in seeing a reading of Tim Gunn. Any reading of him would be fascinating, no doubt. The reason I think a Magnetize Money profile would be intriguing is that, from the little I’ve read and heard about his career path, he seems to have sort of fallen into his success rather than competitively chasing after it in any kind of driven way. So I think it would be especially interesting to see what’s up in his Mag$$ chakra databanks.

And then Blog-Buddy Jordan added:

Tim Gunn is also celibate and “asexual.”

That part stunned me. For years I have been a huge fan of Tim – including his witty book about fashion, A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style (Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style).

He always seemed to be soooo obviously gay. To me, he seemed a great example of an unapologetically, even proud, gay man. Yet I haden’t followed Tim Gunn’s love life.  And a quick google search showed that Jordan was right. Tim’s sexual status is currently… OFF the dating runway.

Here’s background on the standard chakra databanks for a Magnetize Money Profile. Use this aura reading photo of Tim Gunn to read right along with me!

In keeping with my policy about meticulously honoring photo copyrights, I no longer provide links to pictures saved on services like Photobucket. Your best choice for being able to see the photo referred to in a blog post is to stay current as a reader, maybe check in at this blog once a week or more often.

When reading an older article, you may not be able to find the same photo I used originally. Google Images is an easy way to find photos of this public figure. 

Now, let’s put the star of “Project Runway” on our Energetic Literacy Runway.

Root Chakra Databank for Earning Money

97 miles. On a mission to bring civility into society. That means helping people at any income level to be thoughtful, tasteful, refined.

This World Server mission is perfectly congruent with Tim’s human life. No wonder he is such an effective player in the crowded, jostling, often garish, world of fashion.

Root Chakra Databank for Saving Money

40 miles. Conservative, not greedy – Tim needs the security of having orderly finances.

Incidentally, face readers: Check out Tim’s large nose tip and tiny, rectangular nostrils.

Root Chakra Databank for Personality Brought to Work Situations

90 miles. Solid integrity. Cerebral, methodical, tasteful, meticulous – these are the Tim Gunn qualities. And, actually, when I pay attention to the component of sexiness, there is a distinctly asexual quality, as though certain physical parts have been photoshopped out of Tim’s personal image.

Normally I would not address sexuality in a public aura reading, but Tim has gone public on this topic.

Root Chakra Databank for Personality PROJECTED in Work Situations

Projection is what people notice, of course. Some folks have a talent for projecting a personality that is congruent, contrasting, or altogether different. Most of us lack this talent completely. We simply show up before others as who we are. I’m very curious about whether the stylish Mr. Gunn is wearing a personality projection. So here goes….

50 feet. “I’m not shy. You are not going to be able to wound me when I go out in public.”

Awww, you don’t need a Ph.D. in clinical psychology to figure out why a mega-HSP (That’s Highly, Highly Sensitive Person) would send this brave attempt into the airwaves.

And you don’t need to be a logician to figure out that a person can’t truly win, sending out such an energetic disguise. Clothing can camouflage successfully. Energetic mixed-messages don’t work as well.

Blog-Buddies, have you ever been in session with me? Then you know the one thing we always include in a session is your intention. And if you ever, ever come up with an intention like this one, we’re going to co-create something better. This is a no-win personality projection. To me, it helps explain why such a man has gone into a publicly outed identity as an asexual man.

Belly Chakra Databank for Flow of Sexual Energy in Personal Life

Yes, this is the chakra databank most directly related to asexuality and celibacy.

5 miles. Yes, sexual energy does flow for Tim. But it is followed by a strong pattern, “Not for me.”

Such sadness! Such renunciation! Tim, I would love to help you heal this!

Meanwhile, this lifestyle does work for Tim. It helps protect him from the advances of all those gay groupies, straight women who wish to “convert him,” etc.

The renunciation of sex, being both auric and public, is an excellent choice for a man who is so deeply shy. However, that terrible melancholy is STUFF, I believe. This optional kind of suffering can always, always, always be healed… if the person chooses to find a healer with the skills to accomplish this.

Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Handling Conflict at Work

And isn’t there ever conflict on “Project Runway”! In the diva-like world of fashion design, especially with reality show wannabes who have undoubtedly been selected for high drama temperament as much as designing ability! Puhleeze!

Well, let’s consider Tim’s chakra databank resources for addressing this unique type of conflict at work.

95 miles of ultra-skilled refereeing skills.

Pursuing Jordan’s tip about Tim Gunn being asexual, I did a bit of online research, including the article that confirmed celibacy along with his formerly having considered suicide.

This is where I get a hint of that deep kind of anguish. The intense scar tissue in this chakra databank suggests that Gunn’s referee training began in childhood. Reminds me, actually, of the scar tissue in my client Gladys, a former runway model whose alcoholic parents would get into screaming fights on a regular basis. Gladys learned to call the police, then go wait for them outside.

Whatever the harsh childhood circumstances, Tim has undoubtedly learned from real-life situations how to quell  conflict when it turns nasty. Unfortunately, he is still carrying deep pain along with those hard won skills.

Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Intelligence at Work

11 inches. Yes, this is the smallest chakra databank we have seen yet on the accomplished and brilliant Tim Gunn.

At work, he uses a combination of good manners and steeling himself to remain inwardly aloof. Rather than delving into what people feel, Tim uses appropriate speech and action, paying as little attention as possible.

Nearly a foot of active emotional intelligence is plenty, especially for dealing with temperamental fashion industry insiders.

Throat Chakra Databank for Communication at Work

80 miles of the sweetest gravitas. Tim is a kind of High Priest of fashion, bringing it into America’s heartland.

This isn’t an ego-driven interest in fashion, especially notable since fashionistas are so often ego-driven. Displaying one’s body, exciting interest from those who watch one’s apparel – of course this is one of the most ego-related enterprises in human life.

Yet Tim doesn’t communicate on that basis. His work is pristine, sacred, and uplifting for people. It’s also one of those occupations where humans are acknowledged, in all their quirky individuality.

When Tim sells “good taste,” he’s tremendously earnest.

Compassionate without being gushy, and staying gently right on the surface (where fashion work rightly belongs) – that is how Tim Gunn communicates masterfully.

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Paying Attention to His Human Life

22 inches. No, not that!

Tim isn’t especially interested in the nuances of his own inner life. He doesn’t care much about growing.

Tim decorates human bodies for a living. He hides flaws, right?

Many newbies to deeper perception assume that a Highly, Highly Sensitive Person is automatically an empath. Not Mr. Gunn.

That’s a good confusion to get rid of, once and for all. Only 1 in 4 HSP is wired as an empath.

Newbies also may sometimes assume that a good, honorable, sensitive person – like Mr. Gunn – must care deeply about personal growth.


Now hear this, Blog-Buddies. Everybody is NOT “Just like you.”

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source

11 inches of polite indifference. Being a celibate doesn’t guarantee being a saint, or even having much interest in Spiritual Source.

Sure, we have a saying in English, “Clothes make the man.”

However, “Clothes do not make the man care about God.”


In case some of you’all are familiar with my Enlightenment Life List, maybe you’re wondering why Tim Gunn isn’t on it. That smallish Chakra Databank for Emotional Intelligence at Work  is one reason.

He also holds onto so much pain and sorrow from his past. Altogether he’s so good at hiding, actually.

From those Third Eye Chakra Databanks, there’s more evidence that Tim Gunn does not live in bliss. He just dresses as though he does.

Yet there’s no Enlightenment Requirement for being successful in this world. Or inspiring. And Tim Gunn is both.

    Rose, Thanks so much for this one.

    You write:
    “Now hear this, Blog-Buddies. Everybody is NOT ‘Just like you.'”

    Oh, such a simple lesson, yet such a very difficult one, and the reason I so very much appreciate your illustrating the differences in these aura analyses on your blog.

    Glad you resurrected this one. I also wanted to read it, but Zelda beat me to asking.

    I sympathize with his pain around sex. I’m a bit shy too, but I’m very interested in people, plus pretty much clueless about when people are interested in me sexually (it just doesn’t occur to me), and I’ve found several people who apparently think that interest in them as a person means interest in having sex with them.

    Tim write’s in “Gunn’s Golden Rules” about how deeply he was wounded as a young man by his partner–infidelity and belittling–and how he’s never really recovered. Poor guy! Thanks for this reading Rose, it’s spot on.
