ISABELLE was one of the winners of our last contest in 2014, “What did you learn about deeper perception in 2014?”
Her choice was to have me read the aura of Teal Swan. Here is the gist of what ISABELLE wrote me when claiming her prize:
I choose Teal Swan for aura reading. Teal Swan is to me a fascinating person.
She seems like from a another dimension and has a true wisdom to share (for me) – it’s a never ending flood.
I am especially curious to read about her Root Chakra and her Third Eye Chakra.
Teal Swan has stated before that she finds it hard to be grounded, which I very much understand.
Also I am curious about spiritual addiction. Can a person who channels so much ‘naturally’ really be suffering from a spiritual addiction?
Oh, and I would appreciate it if you would use your Spiritual Snapshot selection of chakra databanks.
Prepare for an aura reading of Teal Swan
Blog-Buddies, my preparation is simple. Sure, I have skills of Stage Three Energetic Literacy, and I’ll use them to read the photo that ISABELLE suggested when claiming her contest prize.
Also I’ll be using a selection of the Spiritual Snapshot chakra databanks that I developed for this type of aura reading.
Apart from reading some of the words at this part of Teal Swan’s blog, I know nothing about her at all. Not what she does. Nor how she does it.
Here is a saved version of this glamorous, sweet aura photograph of Teal Swan, just in case she later changes what displays at her blog.
- For aura reading practice, Blog-Buddies, use one of these photo links to research her aura on your own before you read my findings.
- Perhaps in the COMMENTS section below, some of you will share what you do know about the inspiring work of Teal Swan.
- Definitely in a final section at today’s article I will make some comments in response to ISABELLE’s initial request for this aura reading.
1. Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra for Verbal Integrity
80 feet. At the time of this photo, Teal Swan is just buzzing with charisma and charm. In her case, this supports integrity.
Teal Swan is uncommonly perceptive and can communicate her wisdom persuasively.
2. Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra for Power Integrity
4 feet. Teal Swan struggles a bit with the gap between what she knows and belives versus following through in everyday actions. It’s a poignant and very human problem, common as well.
No malice or sneakiness is present. Perhaps Teal Swan is just growing into her personal vision. The words and ideas of this vision might inspire ISABELLE or others in powerful ways that make it possible for them to deliver real-life results, even if Teal Swan is (at the time of this photograph) more of a wayshower.
3. Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Financial Integrity
Aha! a Root Chakra Databank, right, ISABELLE?
18 feet. Teal Swan has a great relationship with money, neither greedy nor grasping nor indifferent. Her personal integrity around financial life is an inspiration.
4. Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Emotional Giving
80 miles. Really a sweet one, this Teal Swan! She loves people. She loves her message.
In her role as a World Server, Teal Swan is a big and authentic giver.
5. Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Emotional Receiving
80 miles. Teal Swan has a tremendous confidence in what she is doing. On that basis, in her role as a World Server (as when taking this publicity photograph), Teal Swan receives a personal high from receiving emotionally. Sweet!
6. Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Making Contact with Objective Reality
Yo, ISABELLA. Another Root Chakra databank. 🙂
3 inches. Real life, rather than the ideals in which Teal Swan believes so fervently? This is an ongoing discontinuity.
I wouldn’t call it a struggle, because — as is often the case when everyday reality conflicts with an idealist’s vision — scant attention is paid to the part that doesn’t fit with what’s cherished.
7. Aura Reading Databank at the Third Eye Chakra for Living with Honor
2 inches. This chakra databank is quite similar to many others at the time of this photo. Teal Swan has a hard-won relationship with highest inspiration.
Seems to me, her connection to Spiritual Source is secondary at this phase in her personal development. Instead Teal Swan is learning what she can do with her human-based inspiration.
This can be a very powerful way to evolve, very human. And it brings the advantage of a sort of bedrock certainty.
Of course, it can be confusing in human terms, having this human-sourced version of spiritually “Living with Honor.”
So the size and quality of this chakra databank are just lovely for Teal Swan and those who would be attracted to her as a teacher or healer.
However, there would also be some people for whom this version of honor and truth would not represent a step forward but, rather, seem quite irrelevant.
As my former guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi used to say, “Knowledge is structured in consciousness.”
8. Aura Reading Databank at the High Heart Chakra for Soul Thrill (Expressing Her Soul in Everyday Life)
18 feet. Dazzling and just superb. Teal Swan is expressing herself as a person, growing fast, helping her people… having the time of her life.
The charisma leaping out of this chakra databank is quite similar to what she has at the Throat Chakra Databank for Verbal Integrity.
In short, Teal Swan has so much leadership to offer her people. Just lovely, ISABELLE.
Some useful ideas about reading auras of people with whom you might study, etc.
Point-by-point, Blog-Buddies, consider:
1. When somebody has a true wisdom to share, and it helps you like a never-ending flood.
Go for it. Just use aura reading as a smart New Age consumer to appreciate the source. Hey, just what we did in today’s aura reading!
2. Reading entire chakras? You can do better.
ISABELLE was especially curious to read about Teal Swan’s Root Chakra and her Third Eye Chakra.
Back when I wrote “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses,” that’s how I thought, too. However, that book was written more than 20 years ago, and the field of energetic literacy has evolved a great deal since then.
Today you’re really missing out if you don’t know about chakra databanks. Here are some FAQs that can supplement all the rest of this article. For a whole book that teaches you how to read chakra databanks, check out “Read People Deeper.” Because reading chakra databanks is so much more accurate and interesting than simply generalizing about an entire chakra.
3. About the ideal of “Grounding”
ISABELLE referred to being “grounded.” It was for this reason she was curious to compare Root Chakra and Third Eye Chakra.
Just as it is obsolete to just read entire chakras, you can do so much better than the notion of balancing Root Chakra and Third Eye Chakra.
If you’re using a technique of energy medicine like Reiki or Eden Energy Medicine, sure. Because energy medicine treats the physical aspect of mind-body-spirit like a machine and fixes it.
However, in my experience, energy medicine techniques to not help people significantly to move towards Enlightenment. The techniques can fix, and heal, which is a big deal.
The idea of “Grounding” isn’t just about making the physical energy machine work better; this can be a very important part of a person’s path of personal development. Unless your goal is energy healing of the physical body, it will help you a whole lot more to move forward in human-based spirituality, rather than seeking chakra balancing.
Consider, for instance, that I found Teal Swan to be doing very well in her Root Chakra Databank for Financial Integrity, while her Root Chakra Databank for Connecting to Physical Reality was pretty stuck.
That’s precisely the combo that might appeal to some of her followers. While others might not find it helpful, because they are in a phase of development that emphasizes connecting powerfully to what people say and do in everyday life.
One reason why I took “Empowered by Empathy” out of print is that it contains some obsolete ideas about “Grounding.” So I’m hardly in a position to criticize someone for going through a phase of learning where this is a big ideal. From my perspective now, it’s limiting and unhelpful, but that is now. And my particular version of reality, truth, etc.
4. Concern over spiritual addiction
Since we live in The Age of Energy, spiritual addiction is a really big deal. ISABELLE was smart to ask about this.
Specifically, I would like to respond to this question:
“Can a person who channels so much ‘naturally’ really be suffering from a spiritual addiction?”
ISABELLE, anybody — and I do mean anybody — can move into spiritual addiction quite easily, at least during this new phase of The Age of Energy.
As for channeling, use that word with care. Because channeling often pops people right into spiritual addiction. Especially beware anyone who channels “Higher energies” or “Beings from a more evolved world” or spirits. Such folks are at risk for extreme spiritual addiction. Practitioners of RES have learned how to facilitate this type of healing session, which is quite advanced and not something to attempt on your own.
You are best protected by living in human-based spirituality and strictly avoiding contact with anyone who offers you things like attunements, energy upgrades, higher frequencies, teaming up with superior energies to become a superior type of person, etc. My advice? Don’t hang around to find out if that person describes the attunements as superior, etc. Leave and leave for good.
In short, ISABELLE’s question was really smart. 🙂
Given what I found at the Third Eye Chakra databank in today’s aura reading, seems to me that the lack of connection to Spiritual Source outside of herself provides a protection against spiritual addiction. For now. That advice just given is meant for use on an ongoing basis. All of us are evolving super-quickly now. Energetically life on earth is tricker than any other times you have lived through so far in this lifetime.
