Lately so many of my clients and Blog-Buddies have been loving their lives as never before. And the reason is simple. They are learning to commit to their human lives, relish the moment and savor the juicy details. They have become increasingly effective, playing in the realms of speech and action.
This is the glory of human life in the Age of Awakening. If we stay interested in human life, without trying to fancy it up with energies, we can make that human life GREAT.
In this new age, with its different vibrational patterns, it has become so easy for us to move our awareness away from the human…
into astral-level energies…
which correspond to the subconscious mind…
and doing this can make us feel oh-so-special.
Energy is our shiny new toy in the Age of Awakening (a.k.a The Age of Aquarius, The Shift Age, The Aquarian Age).
Yet a little bit of random energy reading goes a long, long way. Which is why I advocate taking just 20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time, Tops. When you combine this approach with the healing techniques of Energy Spirituality, it is quite astounding how much a person’s life can improve.
Meanwhile, though, I would like to report on a recent conversation that I had with JOE. Quite classic for this new Age of Awakening! Today’s teaching tale could become downright educational — for you, although not necessarily for him. As you’ll soon read.
JOE’s special secret, his new pride and joy
There we were, chatting at a Starbucks, enjoying face time. Well, JOE started telling me about how he loves to read people’s energies.
As he began to describe some of these insights, I noticed, uh-oh!
- JOE’s energy insights were pretty basic, clearly Stage One Energetic Literacy, the beginner’s stage.
- JOE was quite thrilled with his energy-flavored insights. He believed he was learning “Everything.” A superior insight.
- A lifestyle was developing for JOE; he was dipping in and out of reading energies all day long.
Yes, JOE was responding like any typical human in this new Age of Awakening.
Of course, it has become super-easy for him to dip in and out of energy awareness.
Energy is our shiny new toy in the Age of Awakening. But just because we have talent for reading energy does not mean that we have developed SKILLS.
JOE sure hadn’t. And he had no clue about any of this.
I had a choice to make
Bear in mind, JOE wasn’t a Blog-Buddy or a client. He knew nothing about my work with Rosetree Energy Spirituality, except for a little bit that he had heard from a mutual friend.
JOE was from the social side of my life, one of those human-level friendships. More precisely, JOE was a well-recommended acquaintance from my neighborhood. I hoped that he might become a friend.
And now the choice was clear to me: Was I going to step into my role as world server and teacher? Or would it be better to smile and nod and say what he expected, like “That’s nice.” Or “Oh, how special you must be.”
In this case, I decided to offer education. That’s something I seldom do these days in my social life with neighbors or folks at the gym, etc. Still, I wasn’t the one who had introduced the subject of reading random energies, so I made the decision, even if it might squash my tender new friendship with JOE.
Aiming for maximum tact, I said, “Because of the work I do, I have a perspective on what you were just saying, JOE. Would you like me to share it, or shall we talk about something else?”
When JOE agreed to the share, I gave it to him. Ooookaaaaay.
Three Stages of Energetic Literacy, Energy Hygiene, the works
As tactfully as possible, I explained to JOE about the three stages of energetic literacy.
How he had a good beginning, yet he could do better. How he could gain skill to supplement his talent. In which case, he would gain loads more information, and it would help him in life even more.
Also, I mentioned the concept of energy hygiene. Just a sentence. Here I’ll give you a longer version:
What is energy hygiene?
In a nutshell, energy hygiene means it is not good for people to dip in and out of reading energy all day long. (So tempting, admittedly, in this new Age of Awakening.)
To develop good energy hygiene:
- Know that reading energy is not a superior version of regular human life. It is a supplement. And a choice.
- Become very clear about whether you are in technique or not.
- Mostly, refrain from doing techniques that involve energy.
- Whenever you finish, go back to paying attention to human life and not energy.
Wow, was JOE offended by my teensy mention of energy hygiene!
His manner changed — voice, facial expression, body language. We would have no more lovely times together at Starbucks, for sure.
In retrospect, I got it.
For many newbies, reading energies is like discovering sex
Hey, remember puberty? Back in the day, new feelings would stir within you. Sexual energy was awakening. For teens, that becomes the shiny new toy.
And woe to the grownup who says:
How wonderful! Sex is great, thrilling, sacred. Watch out, though, because there are important things to learn about sex that you don’t necessarily know. Like:
- How to prevent pregnancy.
- Why it’s important to balance your raging hormones with the instant intimacy sex brings.
- Which behaviors will help you to show respect for your sexiness.
- And how to not get hurt.
True, each person’s sexual energy is inherently beautiful. It’s a kind of talent. Well, in life we are wise to combine talent with knowledge and skill, right?
Know what you’re in for, sharing your wisdom about energetic literacy
Blog-Buddies, maybe some of you have already learned this the hard way. In this new Age of Awakening, many newbies are so very proud about having discovered energy.
Much like sex, it feels very personal, as though you were the first person in the world to discover this deeply intimate thing.
While others may prefer doing everything they can to avoid the new energy access, self-protection which leads to spiritual shutdown.
All this amounts to a sacred choice for each person here at Earth School.
Personally, I teach and help to offer alternatives. Ultimately I respect each person’s free will. I expect that, in the end, everyone will have a beneficial educational experience.
So here’s my advice to you, Blog-Buddies. You have every right to speak up one time. Just once.
It may change your relationship, so consider yourself warned. Decide if you’re willing to risk that.
If you should speak up, know about the trap of energy pride in the Age of Awakening.
Should a negative response result, don’t be bamboozled by the pride aspect. If I hadn’t known better, hearing the defensiveness and contempt in JOE’s voice might have made me feel guilty.
Okay, let’s end today’s post with something that you may consider humorous. I do
In many cords of attachment these days I am finding cordees with massive pride in how great they are, how wise, reading energies.
I’ll end this quote with one quip from my client GLADYS. When asking for background, part of cutting her cord of attachment to a long-time friend, she described him this way:
“He feels he has developed his own psychic understanding of his psychic…ness.”
Is that hilarious or what?
Ooh, feeling special in that certain Stage One Energetic Literacy way.
Funny thing, I’ve helped many folks develop Stage Three Energetic Literacy. By which time, guess what? Reading energ is no longer a matter of pride. Energetic literacy has become a useful tool, just like the Gutenberg literacy that allowed you to read today’s post.
