Moving Forward Gracefully in the Age of Aquarius

Age of Aquarius living compared to an airport's moving walkway

Age of Aquarius living compared to an airport’s moving walkway

Living today, it’s like walking forward on a fast moving walkway. The momentum for speed carries us forward like one of those motorized thingies they have at airports. Even if you stand still, clutching your suitcase, another passenger may pass you by, moving even faster.

Good luck staying comfortable, no matter how fast or slowly you wish to go.

That’s life in this Age of Aquarius, where collective consciousness all over the world is evolving so fast. In the country I know best, America, this has been a month of such social and political change.

  • A huge victory for gay rights and a hideous defeat for the opposers.
  • A humiliating loss for those who are now stockpiling Confederate flags like crazy, while they can still get them.
  • Fuming rage or frustrated incredulity for those who support gun control, at watching yet another murder.
  • Horror that the Affordable Care Act is still the law of the land.
  • Buttons pushed first by Caityn Jenner, then by Rachel Dolezal.
  • And all that’s just America. What anybody concerned about financial security who lives right now in Greece? Or marriage conservatives in Ireland? What about so much more….

Aura Reading Rev. Rick Warren. A Spiritual Perspective on the Supreme Court Decision about Marriage Equality

Today’s Supreme Court decision in favor of same sex marriage is certainly dominating American news today. Coincidentally this morning I was preparing to write a blog post today on a topic like “What is spiritual experience, anyway?”

This was prompted by recent comments at the Empath Empowerment Skills Group on Facebook. We need to lay that groundwork as part of the continuing education there about what it means to become a skilled empath.

I thought this topic would be of interest to all you Blog-Buddies. What IS spiritual experience, anyway?

The timing is so great, here. Nice touch, Universe! Because now I can bring an aura reading perspective to a “Spiritual” cause that may not really be so very spiritual.

Auras show us the truth

Inside Info on Cutting Cords of Attachment: What Is The Yuckiness Index?

Stephanie Thomas -- now here's somebody who knows about The Yuckiness Index

Stephanie Thomas — now here’s somebody who knows about The Yuckiness Index

The Yuckiness Index — on average I work with that just about every day of my life. Because every time I facilitate cutting a cord of attachment, I check out that Yuckiness Index.

Yet you won’t know what the heck that is unless we have been together in session with the Healing Centerpiece of cutting a cord of attachment.

Or you have been in session with someone I trained as an expert in this system of Energy Spirituality. Like Stephanie Thomas, pictured at the top of today’s post.

Or you have read today’s article. 😉

Yes, today I’m starting a series of articles about little known technical aspects about cutting these energy cords. I figure, the more you know about this specialty of energy healing, the more you will benefit:

  • If you are someone who does self-healing, it’s helpful to know some of the lesser known, but very cool, technical points.
  • As a consumer, learning about The Yuckiness Index can alert you that there is more to cutting cords of attachment than you may have been expecting.
  • And also, as a really clever New Age Consumer, guess what? You can start asking new practitioners, “Do you use The Yuckiness Index?” This is a good question to pose when seeking a qualified person to help you with energy healing, and it’s possible that a cord of attachment might be cut. (Not everyone is as sophisticated about cords of attachment as you are becoming, you know!)

Aura Reading Soulful Sam Smith

Sam Smith, ready for his aura reading

Here’s a lighthearted treat, some aura reading courtesy of one of the great nominations at our last contest, What Could Possibly Make This Person Tick?

Blog-Buddy SANDRA HAERING nominated Sam Smith because “He sings like an angel, and he seems like such an innocent, sweet person.”

She mentioned being particularly impressed with how he responded when Tom Petty’s people approached his people about the similarity between Smith’s hit “Stay with Me” and Tom Petty’s song “I Won’t Back Down.”

Smith acknowledged that they sound very similar, and even though the similarity was accidental, he now gives Petty credit for writing the track.

That does sound gorgeous, doesn’t it, Blog-Buddies? One of my favorite phrases is “My sacred honor.”

And it sounds, from the surface of life, as though Sam Smith really gets that.

Let’s find out what his aura reveals. 🙂

What Does NOT Count as Technique Time — 11 Exceptions to the General Rule

Celebrate Father's Day today OR any holiday of your choice. Celebrate in a HUMAN way.

Celebrate Father’s Day today OR any holiday of your choice. Celebrate in a HUMAN way.

Blog-Buddies, I’m so glad to be explaining this last chunk of great importance to those of us who limit our Technique Time to 20 Daily Minutes, Tops. As described in yesterday’s article.

What is Technique Time? It’s all about voluntary positioning of consciousness.

During Technique Time a person positions awareness away from objective reality or surface thoughts and feelings… in order to improve himself or herself.

It’s a movement away from human vibrational frequencies towards Divine vibrational frequencies or — most commonly — the person winds up with awareness positioned squarely at astral vibrational frequencies.

Here are 11 things that could happen during a 24-hour period. None of them would count as your official Technique Time.

Notice the reasons given, however. Each of these exceptions is being named in a context, or a manner of doing a particular activity.

Technique Time Exception #1: Let’s Hear It for Insomnia

All that happens between going to bed for the night and getting out of bed to begin your new day….

If you have insomnia, that could be your lucky opportunity. Because you can pray or visualize or do whatever spiritual activity you like to your heart’s content.

In terms of states of consciousness, you’re moving in and out of waking/sleeping/dreaming. Enjoy that potentially glorious time!

How Can You Keep to 20 Minutes of Technique Time, Given Your Work?

Yes, Blog-Buddies. The answer is yes. Yes you can.

In today’s article I’ll explain how.  Whatever type of work you do, you can still practice the consciousness lifestyle of 20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time, Tops.

As for the why, this simple lifestyle choice is probably THE single most important way that you can protect yourself energetically.

In brief, limiting your daily Technique Time to 20 minutes per day is super-important, now that we live in the Age of Aquarius.

This simple change to your consciousness lifestyle delivers enormous benefits. You won’t just avoid spiritual addiction.

You can grow faster. And come across as more authentic in all your relationships. Very likely, you will earn more money. More people, normal people (without spiritual addiction) will respect you. And there are many other benefits.

Aura Reading Rachel Dolezal, Pushing the Boundaries of Racial Identity

How much does skin color have to matter to you?

How much does skin color have to matter to you?

Nobody said living now would be easy. But really, how flexible does a person have to be? Geesh!

As if it weren’t enough that a national conversation was thrust upon us by Caitlin (formerly Bruce) Jenner! Now a scandal has erupted over Rachel Dolezal, who announced her resignation Monday as head of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Washington. So many people are so very upset because this white woman has identified as black, and lived accordingly.

In her professional life, Rachel Dolezal has chosen to advance the lives of African-Americans.

Her son has told her, “Mom, racially you’re human and culturally you’re black.” Rachel Dolezal reports that, as a girl, she drew self-portraits “using brown crayon, rather than peach, to portray herself, and drawing herself with black, curly hair, not the straight, blonde locks she grew up with.”

While her indignant mother has told the media, “She did not ever refer to herself or draw pictures (like the described self-portraits) or do anything that indicated she thought she was black.” 

Seems to me “ever” is a pretty impressive word for a person to use when describing somebody else’s behavior. I wonder if this mother, Ruthanne Dolezal, also happens to be omnipresent and omniscient. 😉

Certainly it’s indisputible that, unlike Caitlin Jenner, Rachel Dolezal has not sought the spotlight. Yet here it is anyway, and many people have expressed rage, outrage, indignation, and more.

Is she crazy, as her biological parents proclaim to the media? Or is she no more crazy than any transgendered person or cross-dresser, or person who speaks in an accent that doesn’t come from how she was raised? Is it crazy to be a social climber? Or a political activist for a group into which you haven’t been born?

Is it deeply dishonest to exchange a name that doesn’t fit you for a name that aligns with your soul?

What do you Blog-Buddies think? Because a lot of us have skin in this game, literally or figuratively or both.

Clearing Confusions about Drug Highs, Energy Healing, and Empath ANYTHING

How reliable is the energy healing of a stoner?

How reliable is the energy healing of a stoner?

Today at the Empath Empowerment Skills Group, RACHELLE asked a really provocative question:

“Has anyone had any experience or heard of xtacy opening up the Heart Chakra and revealing empathic gifts?”

Her question is relevant to anyone interested in deeper perception, energy healing, and drugs. Not just those of us who are empaths.

Here’s my perspective, based in energetic literacy — reading auras with clarity, and in detail. Feel free to share your responses below. And if you find today’s article helpful, please share it with people you know who might be interested.

So many beautiful spiritual seekers are getting themselves confused. That doesn’t have to be.

Let’s clean up some really major confusions that can lead to far worse problems over time….

What does it mean, energetically, to get high on a drug like “Ecstasy”?

Good Habits When You're a Spontaneous Person. A Guest Post by ZELDA

Surprised by habit? Surprised by spontaneity? Surprised by how fast they can alternate?

Surprised by habit? Surprised by spontaneity? Surprised by how fast they can alternate?

Has this spontaneity topic ever been surprising and educational to me! Our latest discussion of Empath Empowerment has morphed into a conversation about habits, loathing of structure, and what to do when you cannot abide scheduled ANYTHING.

For background, in that conversation there were references to Myers-Briggs, a typing system with four different categories. One of them is whether you are:

  • A “P” — for which the simple summary is that you prefer spontaneity.
  • A “J” — for which the simple summary is that you prefer order, structure.

Within each of these four categories, what complicates things is that you can be just a bit in that category. Or you can be very extremely in that category. Or anywhere in-between.

In terms of Myers-Briggs, I already knew I was an extreme, extreme J. For instance, graduates of my workshops consistently praise how much they learn. I think that’s because I prepare loads of handouts plus highly structured segments and processes.

All this sets the stage for spontaneity: Only repeat participants discover how every workshop becomes a unique improv, based on who comes and whichever questions they ask. Definitely, though, structure first. 

So commited I am to structure, I never considered how readers of my books — and this blog — might not operate that way. At all!

Joke on me then, when folks started commenting at SANDY’S wonderful guest post. Many are extreme J’s. ISABELLA C. and EMILY from our Enlightenment Life List, for instance. Given that thread…

Here’s a delightful follow-up from Blog-Buddy ZELDA. Blog-Buddies, you’re invited to share how you juggle habits, structure, and spontaneity.
