Deeper Perception Made Practical

Aura Reading Movie Review Starring Julianne Moore in "Still Alice"

Julianne Moore, ready for her aura reading movie review

Julianne Moore, ready for her aura reading movie review

Julianne Moore had no trouble remembering her lines, evidently, when portraying Alice, a woman whose cognitive abilities weren’t working so well. Meanwhile the buzz around Oscars 2015 is that people are remembering her. Julianne Moore’s performance was memorable to such an extent that she is likely to win this Sunday night.

Let’s explore Julianne Moore’s performance with some aura reading research. (You’ll find more background about aura reading movie reviews at the end of today’s article.)

Let me encourage you, right from the start. Today’s energetic literacy research won’t be as upsetting as you might expect.

Get ready for today’s Aura Reading Movie Review

The Film: “Still Alice” The Movie Trailer: I haven’t seen it (or the movie itself) but YOU can. Plot Summary from the Academy’s Official Website

As Alice Howland, Julianne Moore plays a college professor who learns that she is suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

Here are the photos we’ll use:

And, having done this article already — except for putting on some finishing touches — I can invite you’all to do aura reading on this performance and pair of photographs. (Unless the entire topic of Alzheimer’s terrifies you. Which is understandable, nothing to kick yourself over. Still, I do encourage you to read through this aura reading movie review. Becaue you may get a different kind of kick out of it.)

Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Connecting to Physical Reality

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as herself

29 miles. Julianne Moore is turning the sex appeal way up. She’s focusing hard at being and looking a certain way. Connecting to physical reality, for her, means connecting to her AUDIENCE. This is a publicity opportunity, a photo shoot.

She knows how to do this.

For the moment, connecting to physical reality isn’t about particular individuals or physical objects. She is the center of her world, while working. And she works really, really hard to do a good job to compel others to pay her the right kind of attention.

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as Alice

10 feet. Very focused. Julianne Moore is intensely controlled right now, in a technical way, as an actress. Working hard to get her face and emotions and voice all right, while still being able to remember her lines.

Really, that is a familiar paradox for performers, isn’t it? How to cry on cue while still hitting your marks.

Or, in this case, how to convey mental blank while doing precisely what your role demands.

Chakra Databank CHANGE Points: 0

The hard work is being done, for sure. Yet Julianne Moore doesn’t have the kind of talent that allows her to change all the way through to the level of chakra databanks, at least not able to do it in a terrifying role like this.

I applaud her courage in taking this part and doing such a detailed performance, working her emotions, conveying terror.

Still there is not the slightest change at the energetic and subconscious level of this chakra databan. Let’s see if others change more as we continue this aura reading movie review.

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Sex Appeal

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as herself

80 miles. Julianne Moore isn’t just beautiful. She has had years to practice how to send out different qualities of sex appeal.

On this occasion, she clearly aims to be taken seriously and lauded for her intelligence.

Think “Sexy librarian” maybe.

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as Alice

3 miles. Luscious. Dainty. Adorably sexy.

For Julianne Moore, it would be pretty hard to turn off this big-deal gift of sex appeal. She’s used to turning it ON stronger while in the spotlight, not OFF.

Chakra Databank CHANGE Points: 0

Oscars often go to a woman who plays a role of being a victim, especially a beautiful actress who is physically or psychologically crippled.

And then, in the role, that actress keeps her sex appeal turned way up.

It’s a surefire recipe for success, including the winner last year for Best Actress, Lupita Nyongo.

Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra for Sharing Power in Relationships

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as herself

20 feet. Steely. Julianne Moore is used to getting her way. She doesn’t like to bring out the diva. But if challenged, she sure will.

Usually she gets better results with being pleasant, charming, charismatic.

At the time of this photo op, though, Julianne Moore is turning up her forcefulness. Hence what shows in the chakra databank about “Don’t you mess with me. I’m tough.”

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as Alice

15 feet. Spunky and used to getting her way. Yet Julianne Moore  is working very hard to act.

It’s as though she is muttering commands to herself subconsciously, in this chakra databank and others:

“Be a sympathetic victim. Act helpless. They will love you for that.”

Chakra Databank CHANGE Points: 0

No change has taken place. This is a classic example of “Trying to act without succeeding at the energetic level.”

Relatively few people on earth can pull off acting to that degree.

It just happens that aura reading movie reviews seek that out. To most in the movie’s audience, a movie is entirely about SHOW business. Right on the surface of life.

Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Emotional Self-Awareness

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as herself

45 feet. Julianne Moore is a warm and loving person. She cares about the people in her life. Emotions around this are emphasized in this chakra databank, especially at the time of this photograph.

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as Alice

50 feet. Julianne Moore has to keep reminding herself that this is just a role. She can handle this.

All the while, like a schmear of cream cheese on a toasted bagel, she is acting scared.

Her self-reassurance is like the bagel itself. Plus her usual working very hard, technically, to manage all the parts of how to move and speak and build drama into the scene.

Chakra Databank CHANGE Points: 0

Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra for Verbal Integrity

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as herself

80 miles. Julianne Moore is a natural charmer. Now she is pushing it, pushing it.

Julianne Moore wants so very much to be taken seriously as an actress.

The chakra databank is large in size because of the projecting her personality, not because she is more honest verbally than most people. Nope, she relates more like a charmer, with a practiced ability to show her sweet side.

A blunt truth will be spoken, when this is in her interest.

Otherwise she provides a cordial, sociable kind of hiding. Sweet, really.

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as Alice

8 inches. As an actress, Julianne Moore is talking herself down. Moderating how loudly she speaks, while still getting the words across clearly. Julianne Moore is trying so hard, in this scene, to convey the emotions of a quietly hopeless, frightened woman.

As usual, there is nothing about this character being portrayed that is anything different from Julianne Moore’s business as usual, working extremely hard technically to deliver a performance that will win her acclaim.

She wants so much to be taken seriously as an actress; in this chakra databank, as in all the others I’ve read here, Julianne Moore is trying so earnestly.

Chakra Databank CHANGE Points: 0

The cream cheese on this acting bagel has, perhaps, been given a shake of cinnamon.

Aura Reading Databank at the High Chakra for Soul Thrill

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as herself

18 feet. At this point in her career, Julianne Moore is a deeply ambitious woman. Driven.

She wants to take her career to the next level.

So at the time of this photo, she is somewhat joyful, getting this degree of attention, being an A-lister in the most competitive industry on the planet.

Yet she can’t quite enjoy it so much as she aims to use her degree of success and fame to launch the rocket of her career to go even higher.

Reading Julianne Moore’s aura as Alice

2 inches. Julianne Moore isn’t having much fun as a soul. She’s working so hard.

Until this moment, I never realized that she could be so intensely self-critical. Aw, Julianne Moore is working so hard to do well. Not just for the art (because she isn’t an artist so much as a beauty). No, she’s a naturally popular person who is seeking acclaim.

Chakra Databank CHANGE Points:0

What’s the difference, for acting, when soul thrill shows? The type of work is dharma.

Dharma means the sort of work that we have natural talent for. It comes relatively easily to us. We learn pretty well, and even when there are problems, it is a delight to overcome them.

Julianne Moore is a natural performer, a beauty, charming, and — I suspect –pretty darned sane for a professional actress. Yet, with all respect, acting isn’t necessarily Julianne Moore’s dharma. (It isn’t necessarily dharma for many a famous actor, actually.)

Conclusion, with total Chakra Databank CHANGE Points: 0 out of 6

With all respect to Julianne Moore, she is not a natural actress. Yet she is still determined to have an A-list acting career.

She’s really gorgeous, with huge sex appeal. And she’s very willing to develop as an actress. Seems to me, Julianne Moore tries extremely hard and focuses intensely. Which cannot make up for the lack of gift-of-the-soul-type acting talent.

Julianne Moore reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor, actually. Except that Elizabeth Taylor didn’t try nearly as hard or focus so intensely, far as I can recall from doing aura reading research about her.

Definitely I remember seeing an interview where she said something like, “I always wanted to be a good actress. I have worked as hard as I could to become a good actress.”

Yet that isn’t why millions loved Elizabeth Taylor.

Likewise I have a great fondness for Julianne Moore. She was such a delight to watch in “30 Rock.”

Maybe she will even win an Oscar this time, as she is favored to do. Couldn’t happen to a nicer person….

World-class actors are able to do something few humans can

Sometimes an Oscar nominee will change so deep down, when creating a role, that transformation shows subconsciously and energetically. One chakra databank after another is altered.

Usually chakra databanks tell the truth. So it’s really fascinating to find which actor succeeds that deeply.

Even the best actors don’t always do this. I have an annual custom of comparing auras of top-nominated actors with their auras in roles. It’s a way to investigate the depth of acting.

This blog post will tell you more about my method of using energetic literacy for aura reading film criticism. To learn more about the sequence of research I’ll use this year on some of the most interesting Academy Award nominees, see this Aura Reading Film Critique blog post.

    So interesting, ROSE, thank you. I saw a movie last year with Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne playing mother and son. They were intense roles, and now I have the sense of how much these two actors might have helped each other do their job. Eddie, with huge manners and sensitivity, and Julianne, also truly nice and professional, quite convincingly portrayed off-kilter and incestuous people as so likeable.

    Your reading of Julianne’s soul thrill databank is touching to me personally because, as someone who is hardly at all self critical or driven, I just want to squeeze her shoulder and say, “It’s cool. You’re beautiful. You’re a great you. You have my permission to go home, bake and enjoy three batches of cookies, and do some freestyle rapping.”

  3. 3
  4. 4

    And isn’t that a revolting thing, BRITTANY and others, how the glorious potential of cinema is now so focused on incestuous people, revolting sadism (as in “Foxcatcher”), or other movies I would prefer not to watch ever.

    Ever.

    How far does lurid curiosity have to go?

    What sanctimonious purpose does it, supposedly, serve?

  5. 5

    I just don’t get why so many movies and TV shows exist today.

    “Macbeth” was art, with depth and an appeal to human growth.

    “Foxcatcher” is more like beautifully packaged vomit.

    It’s one thing to be with people and help them, as I get to do in sessions (including moving out those big frozen blocks of STUFF in Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis). That does serve a purpose.

    Otherwise? Ick!

  6. 6
    Brittany says:

    Yes. I was put off by the decision of these actors to play those roles, until I realized they were based on real people. It made a slight bit more sense to me, then, because I imagined real actory actors would want to challenge themselves to new levels of identification with “other.”

    I agree, ROSE, I am not curious in that manner. I don’t watch a lot of movies, despite my interest, because so much seems gratuitous.

  7. 7
    Emily says:

    Rose I completely agree with you! It is revolting and unnecessary and unhelpful. I am fine talking to someone about their horrible experiences but to be a voyeur for someone’s horrible experiences -it serves no purpose! It is gratuitous and nasty!

    I can’t even handle violent scenes myself let alone enjoy them. I just can’t even!

  8. 8
    Emily says:

    I mistakenly watched a screening of the play Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch in it.

    Yes it is great literature.

    Yes it was amazing acting.

    Which meant I had horrible flashbacks of the violent clips for weeks afterwards.

    I will not assume in future that certain plays/films/tv shows might be ok because they’re supposed to be “artistic”. Ahhhh.

  9. 9

    In a technical way, EMILY, you know the reason for those flasbacks?

    Every one of those repulsive scenes could have resulted in a frozen block of STUFF — large, medium, or small.

    Flashbacks (with the extreme example of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) happen when frozen blocks are triggered.

  10. 10

    So much for the idea that watching horrible, violent, crazy aberrant behavior makes a person more compassionate.

    That’s ridiculous.

    It gives a person more subconscious and energetic STUFF. Due to those frozen blocks.

    In turn, this distorts a person’s beautiful compassion, loving nature, etc.

  11. 11

    BRITTANY, I agree with you that an actor can make decisions based on complex factors. (Which is what you implied.)

    It isn’t hard for an actor to choose ever more morbid, violent roles in order to win the big Oscar prize, as often the prizes are awarded on what is “fresh, new” pathology.

  12. 12

    Consider poor, talented STEVE CARELL, whose career appears to have peaked.

    So now he’s trying to make a new name for himself in “Flycatcher”? His movie character supposedly finds it important to hire an “eccentric” trainer to move into his estate?

    Ooh, such merriment must ensue.

    (Another movie trailer from which I turned away in extreme repulsion.)

  13. 13

    And then there is “Whiplash” with the unbelievably revolting role of J.K. Simmons that (supposedly) is sure to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

    This candidate for Best Movie was not simply tossed aside as a sad exercise by “Actors of the Nutso School of What’s Supposed to Be Interesting”?

    The quest for fame can be insatiable… at least until associated STUFF stops distorting it.

    Kira says:

    I was having a conversation sort of like this with my husband today.

    We had looked up the currently playing movies to see if there was anything we wanted to see this weekend, and the answer was no.

  15. 15
    Kira says:

    But in discussing how ratings changed our minds for a couple of movies we had wanted to see from the trailers (one was Seventh Son, which Julianne Moore is in), he mentioned that ratings could potentially change his mind in the other direction for Sniper.

    The thing is, while Sniper is not about reprehensible behavior for its own sake, it’s still not a movie either of us is really interested in.

  16. 16
    Kira says:

    I don’t need to see the kinds of horrible decisions the main character has to make and live with to understand the emotional toll of war. I have a good imagination for that sort of thing.

    I speculated to my husband that a lot of character dramas like that are useful for non-empaths, because it allows them to put themselves in someone else’s shoes more easily.

  17. 17
    Kira says:

    But I do that naturally, so watching something like that would be overkill for me.

    Movies that push the limits of behavior, like Foxcatcher, could act as warnings for people who don’t realize that there are people like that, but it seems likely that there’s a possibility of addiction to reprehensible behavior, given shows like Jerry Springer.

  18. 18
    Kira says:

    I read Frankenstein in 8th grade and found it haunting. Not because of the violent scenes, but because I put myself in the monster’s shoes and deeply felt his loneliness and sense of betrayal, along with his own self-revulsion.

  19. 19
    Kira says:

    But that actually brings me to my other point.

    I rarely have a problem with violent scenes–at least, as long as they’re fictional.

    I’ve only had 3 movies that I can remember having nightmares about: Towering Inferno, Alien, and Aliens.

    (I watched Aliens because I thought my problem with Alien was that I had been too young when I saw it. I was wrong. It’s the sense that nowhere is safe.)

  20. 20
    Kira says:

    Fictional gore is like fictional violence; I can handle it. I’m not a fan of gory horror movies, but the gore itself doesn’t bother me; on the other hand, I once saw part of a show on reconstructing a woman’s nose, and I couldn’t handle it at all.

  21. 21
    Sylvia says:

    Rose, comments 9 and 10 really resonated for me! I’ve always avoided violent films precisely because of flashbacks. Now I know why! Frozen blocks of STUFF definitely do not feel good.

    Some friends recently asked why I don’t often go out to movies. I pointed out that movies fall under the “entertainment” category, so if I feel worse afterward, that hardly seems reasonable as a source of entertainment.

  22. 22
    Jnana says:

    I really liked the movie ‘The Hours’. I liked the first (Nicole Kidman) and third stories (Meryl Streep) in it but was impatient with the second (Julianne Moore).

    I thought I did not like the content of the second story but perhaps I was responding to the actress.

    It’s a shame she doesn’t get to do something with her life that thrills her soul .

  23. 23

    SYLVIA, I like that explanation.

  24. 24

    Interesting point related to your last paragraph here, JNANA.

    What is required for excellent functioning of the High Heart Chakra Databank for Soul Thrill?

    It isn’t just a matter of your work. It takes one hour a day doing any combination of activities that thrills your soul, be it exercise or a creative hobby or cleaning your house.

  25. 25

    And the other factor for excellent functioning, with this or any other chakra databank, is STUFF.

    Of course, STUFF can always, always, always be healed. As you Blog-Buddies well know if you read this blog often.

  26. 26

    And one more nuance that seems important to me, JNANA, is that at some times acting might well awaken soul thrill for Julianne Moore.

    At the time I read her, as her, in this blog post… she was in the throes of ambition, pushing herself, trying to have an even bigger career than she already has.

    Ironically, folks tend to increase their success when they are enjoying what they do, rather than discontented and aiming for something way better.

  27. 27
    Zelda says:

    I also have found it hard to get excited about seeing many (any?) of the nominated films due to the subject matter.

    Even this one, Still Alice, is a head-scratcher, having dealt with my mother’s dementia.

    I have no idea why people want to watch such stories as entertainment. I sure don’t!

  28. 28
    Zelda says:

    Actually, I probably will see The Theory of Everything. I’d like to see Eddie Redmayne’s performance.

    Benedict Cumberbatch was fabulous in The Imagination Game and that was a great story.

  29. 29
    Kylie says:

    Sylvia, I love your explanation. While I watched a ton of movies in my college years and loved them, it’s a very rare movie now that I actually enjoy. It definitely defeats the purpose of entertainment to sit through something you don’t enjoy.

  30. 30
    Happy says:

    Does one have to be an empath for frozen blocks to form while watching violent and gory movies or would everyone be affected? I wondered because some people does not seemto be affected by violence on the screen and instead seeks them out.

  31. 31

    Good question, HAPPY. Everyone human gets frozen blocks. The same goes for ALL the 15 types of STUFF you can read about here:

    https://www.rose-rosetree.com/blog/2014/06/11/15-kinds-of-stuff-vibrational-repositioning-rosetree-energy-spirituality/

    The one exception being Imported STUFF, which only happens to empaths.

  32. 32

    The other factor related to frozen blocks is that all Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs) may have more frozen blocks from ANY experience, due to having the more sensitive kind of nervous system.

  33. 33

    And speaking of being a Highly Sensitive Person, who is more likely to notice that there is lots of internal STUFF, that subconscious and energetic astral-level debris?

    Greater awareness of internal discomfort is the flip side of all the wonders of being a Highly Sensitive Person.

  34. 34
    Jane says:

    Rose, continuing with this thread, do HSPs tend to emphasize the subjective more, and tend more towards over-subjectivity, than less sensitive people?

    And would you say this is a result of the ability to notice more inside?

    Do HSPs have more inner life?

  35. 35
    Jane says:

    Also, tangentially related…

    For Enlightened people, STUFF is knocked down to a ‘1’ in intensity.

    Also bad experiences don’t ‘stick.’

  36. 36
    Jane says:

    Also you’ve just said that the amount of Frozen Blocks formed is directly related to the functioning of a person’s nervous system.

    This is in contrast to other kinds of stuff. For example: Cords of attachment have the same rules for when they’re formed no matter who you are, no matter how sensitive your system is. So a sensitive person would not have more cords of attachment than someone with very low sensitivity.

  37. 37
    Jane says:

    So I’ve been wondering – do Enlightened people get new Frozen Blocks of energy? Or are they just living with the old ones, now way less intense?

    My guess is that they can get new ones, but not nearly as easily, due to the way their nervous system is functioning. And due to grace. 🙂

    Thanks, Rose.

  38. 38

    JANE, thank you for this excellent series of comments.

    Taking it from the top, with Comment #34… yes. You’re on to something here.

  39. 39

    About your Comment 35, JANE, again, yes. I agree.

  40. 40

    Regarding your Comment #36, yes again!

  41. 41

    And I agree also with your surmise, JANE, in Comment #37.

    That’s four in a row, for any admirers of you who are counting. 🙂

  42. 42
    Happy says:

    Emily, I never knew how to call those experiences where you remember a terrible scene in a movie but you just mentioned it, “flashbacks”. It has been plaguing me for a while and it is also what made me stop watching really violent movies, because I could not stop thinking about it.

  43. 43
    Emily says:

    Glad to help you there Happy! Yes I’m the same, I don’t watch violent films or TV shows as a matter of course. If my boyfriend wants me to watch his favourite series he needs to know which parts are violent so he can skip over them for me!

    Although sometimes even just the concepts and theoretical entities introduced in tv series can be horrific and disturbing…

    without even seeing anything visually or hearing it even.

  44. 44
    Emily says:

    I lot of people take issue with my not watching anything with violence in it. Some people have said “but the cultural important of {this disgustingly violent and horrific} alien/horror/war film is so great that you’re doing yourself a disservice not watching this and missing out on cultural references.

    Well you know what? If you read the plot/”legacy” section on Wikipedia you probably will have read more about the cultural relevance and legacy of that film/TV show that if you had ever watched it!
