Recently we shared an aura reading of the New Age teacher Teal Swan. It was in response to a contest prize for Isabelle. My original aura reading is here. And then Isabelle’s luscious follow-up guest post is here.
Additional feedback has come from Blog-Buddy JEM. Of course, this is not meant as a pile-on. Usually I avoid doing aura reading research at this blog about spiritual teachers, healers, etc. On the other hand, it is important to bring discernment.
You, Smart New Age Consumer, have the self-authority to decide for yourself what rings true. You may know I wrote a whole book to alert spiritual seekers to a dead end, the Romance of the Astral. And another book for protecting yourself also brings a very post-New Age perspective to The Romance of the Astral.
No previous guest post at this blog has gone into such vivid detail about that, The Romance of the Astral: Illusions, confusions, distractions for a sincere seeker of God.
Get ready for a passionate essay, folks, heartfelt and (to me) powerfully true.
As usual with guest posts, I add headings and links and minor edits. The voice below belongs 100% to perceptive JEM.
Deeper perception about the appeal of Teal Swan
When I saw Teal Swans photo, in the thread where Rose was reading Teal, I saw a massively bright, beautiful-looking realm of energy, HUUUUUGE, coming out of her upper body.
It was astral but high-vibe in astral terms and looked heavenly.
That energy would subconsciously trick a lot of energetically illiterate people, they would think Teal was really evolved and connected.
However, I also saw and registered quite a few things that seriously gave me the heebie-jeebies. I felt my aura begin to shrink back from her and I saw awful little bits and bobs begin to make their way toward me from her fields, so I got away and did what I knew how to do energetically to protect myself.
Note: I have not been trained to do any Rosetree readings of auras. I just see things for some reason, always have. Since studying with her, I have learned about energy hygiene and Technique Time. I can turn it ON and OFF now.
I dont think this is part of gaining skills with the system of Empath Empowerment(R). I think that having more control over when I read auras or not is something different.
So with the kind of energetic literacy I do have available now, I turned aura reading ON for the photo of Teal in that blog post to see if what I saw matched Roses evaluation. For fun. (Blog-Buddies, I am not reading all of your photos here at the blog.)
Spiritual addiction? I choose to avoid that, thank you.
I dont know how to be frank without sounding mean, but I wouldnt go near Teals work with a 50-foot stick. Teal sure is a beautiful being but something has gone askew for now.
Meanwhile, Ive just had the most bothersome conversation with someone who is spiritually addicted.
After telling me at length about all the signs the Universe has sent him lately in the form of:
- Losing jobs
- People smiling at him
- Or not smiling at him (He feels this is not about them and their moods but all about him personally)
- His car continually breaking down
- The Universe showing him numbers like 11:11 etc.
Getting freaky yet?
Next my friend casually advised me that hes started smoking dope “for spiritual reasons.”
As we continued talking he let me know that
- He was outside
- In his underwear
- Performing chi exercises
- And connecting with plant spirits.
Can’t the guy have a human conversation without playing with energy? You couldnt write better comedy. I have the right to laugh because Ive been like that and worse.
Blog-Buddies, let’s continue with Part Two of this Guest Post tomorrow. Already there’s a lot of controversial commenting here. Any reactions so far?
