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.

Techniques that you practice might include official and unofficial forms of Technique Time:

  • Official Technique Time includes Meditation, prayer, yoga, EFT, communicating to solve people’s unmet needs, energy healing, Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.
  • Unofficial Technique Time includes checking out people’s energies, asking your guides what to do, shielding and grounding, analyzing your life, exploring your pain. Unskilled empath merges! (Yet more reason to become a skilled empath, right?)

If you’d like to understand more about this component of Rosetree Energy Spirituality, check out Balance Your Life Energetically and Heal Spiritual Addiction, Top 10 List. This article gives you two handfuls of useful, free education. Learn about the benefits of taking charge of your personal Technique Time.

Supplementary resources can help you as well:

  • Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy” can help you understand, in lavish detail, why practices that produce spiritual addiction can cost you big-time. And what you can do instead.
  • A depth discussion of Technique Time is included in the Expanded Edition of “The Empowered Empath: Owning, Embracing and Managing Your Special Empath Gifts”
  • In a personal session with any expert at Rosetree Energy Spirituality, you can receive custom-coaching in how to make this consciousness lifestyle work for you.

The Easiest Way to Manage Your Daily Technique Time… Usually

Decide whether you prefer one period of 20 minutes. Or choose two periods (maximum), adding up to 20 minutes. Like 5 and 15. Or the ever-popular 10 and 10.

Buy a watch or timer, some timepiece other than your mobile phone. The idea is to effortlessly keep track of the time, taking just one glance. Otherwise the process of keeping time will distract you, detracting from your precious Technique Time.

  • Make a list of what you can choose from, and then take out that list before that session of Technique Time begins. Decide what you will do. Keep to your time. Act like a grownup here.
  • It’s simpler if you have a regular practice. Then you know just what you will do. So do it. By the clock.

Bottom line: If you have many favorite forms of technique, you’re gonna have to choose. What you don’t do today, you can do another day.

20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time will not help you if you cheat, fudge it, pretend, deny, or otherwise do more than that amount. If you’re tempted, ask yourself questions like these:

Do I want to move forward in Human-Based Spirituality? Or not.

Do I want to progress rapidly on my spiritual path? Or not.

About all those practices that I do to improve myself, clean up my energy field, etc.  Did I start doing them to SUPPORT my life? Or to BECOME my life?

But what if your work in the world seems to require Technique Time?

Excellent questions about this came in today from Blog-Buddy ISABELLE. In Comments 3 and 4, she asked about:

  1. The follower of somebody on my Enlightenment Life List, a spiritual aspirant who “does pujas for several hours a day, it is her job at the moment.”
  2. A professional yoga teacher

Let’s consider each of these questions separately.

The lifestyle of a big spiritual seeker

How you follow a spiritual path is intimately personal. My bold suggestion — and it’s only my suggestion — is this.

Adjust your spiritual path to the vibrational rules of the Age of Aquarius.

When ancient spiritual practices were designed, that was not now. That was back, faaaaaaaaaaaar back, in the day.

Living now, one 10-minute puja is just as powerful as:

  • 10 weeks of puja time 1,000 years ago.
  • days of puja time 50 years ago.
  • 2 hours of puja time in 2010.

Even a big spiritual seeker can keep Technique Time to 20 Minutes per day. At least, if you are a householder.

If you’re a renunciate, don’t hang out in society as if you are just an ordinary householder. Who happens to live as a celebate. Doesn’t earn money. Has no worldly ambition. Only lives for God.

Life is too harsh, out in the world, to act like a renunciate unless you have a monastic order or other organization to protect you. Even then, renunciate life is far more difficult, on the whole, than life for householders. (One of the reasons I have come to this conclusion is that I have read auras, in detail, of quite a lot of renunciates. Not just the thousands of times I have done aura readings of householders.)

Living as a renunciate out in the world, guess what? You’re more likely to live the horrifically confusing lifestyle of a householdery renunciate.

If you ARE a householder, get a life. And keep your Technique Time to 20 minutes.

As an Enlightenment Coach, I’ll add this

If you care a lot about your spiritual evolution, pay attention to the people who are proposed for my Enlightenment Life List. Which of these nominees make it onto that list? And who doesn’t?

Energetic literacy reveals a lot about consciousness, and Enlightenment is about consciousness. Not about counting how many pujas have been clocked in every day.

Recently a beautiful renunciate was proposed for my Enlightenment Life List by Blog-Buddy “Josephine.” (See Comments #1689 and 1695). Here I’ll refer to this renunciate as “Gladys.” Her guru had made it onto my Enlightenment Life List, and Gladys had been honored within that tradition. Logically it made sense that, of course, Gladys would also have moved into Enlightenment.

Only she hadn’t. Not according to my research, anyway. (In the main article you can learn about the criteria I use, with additional links available in case you wish to start doing that sort of research on your own.)

Well, Gladys wasn’t anywhere close. When I gave that response (Comments 1695 and 1696) , Josephine found it pretty unacceptable. (See Comment 1707.)

Look, that’s understandable. Josephine had skin in the game. So I suspect that Josephine found it pretty easy to discard my assessment and continue believing that Gladys is/must be living in Enlightenment.

You can find plenty of similar examples in the comments section of this post dedicated to research on Enlightenment. Many a devotee is proposed, a disciple who does not attain the degree of consciousness that the master had attained. Well, here’s an idea for those of you who care more than anything else about God, and experiencing God clearly:

Most people appreciate that attaining this state of consciousness involves transcending the illusions of earth. Well, living in this Age of Aquarius, we have a bunch of extra illusions to release. Foremost among them is the notion that the more Technique Time we do, the faster we evolve.

Nope.  Sorry. Not true now. Today, the more Technique Time we do, the more likely we are to move into spiritual addiction. Make your choices accordingly.

And what about professional work that seems to involve Technique Time?

Like the work of that yoga teacher. Or the work of an energy healer. Or the work of Adam McIntosh, The Gentle Acupuncturist. Or the work I do, for that matter.

To use a professional skill set, you don’t have to read people’s auras constantly. Are you kidding?

A yoga teacher, for instance, demonstrates asanas. Checks the students.

That’s different from her personal practice, when she is DOING yoga, and personally feeling the benefits.

Anne Hathaway won an Oscar for a performance in which she sang while crying. This wasn’t the same thing as just crying. It took tremendous technical skill to perform as somebody who was crying while not personally crying.

In just about any field, you can separate moving into a Technique Time experience in your consciousness versus using your other professional skills.

During your work with a client, take a minute or two for assessment. Do your Skilled Empath Merge, or whatever. Then spend the rest of the time with your client being a human, using your professional skills.

Can this be done? You bet.

If you can’t figure this out, I’ll mentor you in a personal session. It’s surprising, however, that when money is involved (my mid-range fee for a session, for instance) many a person will become strongly motivated to figure things out for himself. 😉

What does NOT count as Technique Time?

Here is your link to a blog post on that.

Do the math as you need to, adjusting Technique Time

So, in the unusual case where your career DOES involve small amounts of Technique Time, you will need a different arrangement than 1 or 2 periods to fit in that day’s Technique Time. I would recommend this:

  • Give yourself an early period in your day for 2-5 minutes, depending on that day’s schedule.
  • Keep each session’s worth of Technique Time down to 1 or 2 minutes, using good practices of energy hygiene. 
  • After work is over subtract this total from your quotidian allotment of 20 minutes.  That’s what you have left for that day. Enjoy it.

Anybody can live this way. Any householder at least.

Thanks for asking, ISABELLE.

    I did a lot of meditation over the years. I had received the new-age notion that the more meditation I did, the better it was for me. So, being diligent, I did as much as I could.

    And I hated it. Really. Almost every minute of it, over all those years, felt like pulling teeth.

    I still remember when we had a session where you were researching meditation practices for me. You indicated that it might be more productive for me to only do 20 minutes, or even none at all (based on what you found in my aura at the time).

    I dropped my meditation practice like a hot coal, with a profound sense of relief. I haven’t picked it back up yet 🙂

    Thanks Rose!

    And I appreciate YOU, ISABELLE.

    What a coincidence. 😉

    As for you, ADAM, thank you so much for supplementing your glowey photo with those words of wisdom in your Comment #1 here.

    Rose, I love this:

    “Most people appreciate that attaining this state of consciousness involves transcending the illusions of earth. Well, living in this Age of Aquarius, we have a bunch of extra illusions to release. Foremost among them is the notion that the more Technique Time we do, the faster we evolve.”

    Tehya says:

    Adam, I can relate to your comment. I used to force myself to meditate every day, for longer and longer periods, all done for the sake of growth and spiritual development. I did not consciously realize how much I did NOT enjoy doing that until reading your comment.

    Tehya says:

    I also once knew someone who was proud of how many hours a day she meditated. This might have sounded impressive to others, like something they’d want to try to emulate. But because she took it to such an extreme the consequences were easy to observe.

    She was unfocused and hard to follow when conversing with others, almost like someone with mild dementia. I could see people become instantly impatient each time she opened her mouth to speak.

    I once got into a car with her (never again!) and I think it was just her physical body and subconscious mind doing the driving. Her awareness seemed to be continuously elsewhere.

    I also saw her easily triggered to anger and frustration several times in the short time I knew her. So her meditation practice was apparently not benefiting her in that sense either.

    What’s more, if you could bear a long conversation with her, you would discover that she is actually a remarkable woman. She was wise, had overcome some extraordinary challenges, and had been quite successful in life.

    Living in spiritual addiction does not get people the results they hope for, nor the respect from others they actually deserve.

    Tehya, it also took me a while to figure out I truly didn’t like meditating. Most of the time I just thought I was bad at it, or felt guilty about not wanting to do it.

    Does it count as technique time if I watch a video from a spiritual teacher?

  10. 10
    Jeanette says:

    What if I enjoy watching psychological videos, like about co-dependency. That doesn’t count as technique time, does it?

  11. 11

    Glad you asked, JEANETTE.

    Is the spiritual teacher teaching you techniques or leading you in a spiritual exercise? All that time would count as Technique Time. So schedule the watching during your official Technique Time. Not in addition.

  12. 12

    Is the spiritual teacher just talking about angels or God? Or life principles? Or ways to interpret your life to make things more “spiritual”?

    Anything that gives you a special otherworldly good feeling COUNTS as Technique Time.

    So plan it accordingly.

  13. 13
    Jeanette says:

    I don’t get how I can do it? That video lasts for an hour. I’ll spoil watching it if I don’t see it all the way through.

  14. 14

    How you can do it is by using a watch or clock.

    Which matters more to you, having uninterrupted viewing of somebody’s viewing? Or keeping your life in balance.

    It’s up to you, of course. But 20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time, Tops works well for clients. One hour here or there does not.

  15. 15

    Regarding Comment #10, JEANETTE. Of course this counts as Technique Time.

    Your life is human. You can have human interests.

    So many techniques re done in order to help people have better lives. Well, fine.

    To help the life be better, not to replace it, right?

  16. 16

    In the Aquarian Age, techniques we do are much more powerful than previously. In today’s energies, more than 20 minutes of Technique Time per day will through your life (and aura) out of balance.

    Experiment for three weeks, keeping your Technique Time down to 20 minutes, maximum. Then assess.

    I think you will be amazed at the improvemenht to your (human) life. Find out!

    This is so true Rose. I was wanting to improve some health issues and read a book by a doctor in mind body psychological stuff and felt somewhat nervous about trying what I now realize were techniques. Within a week or two I could tell I was tipping into spiritual addiction again! Oh boy, it snuck up on me and I’m mad at myself but I did learn from it.W

    Dear LOUISE, this is Earth School, The Learning Planet.

    At the end of a lifetime, what matters?

    Maybe just this:

    “What did I learn?”

    “How did I treat people?”

    “Did I help people? How?”

    Comment 18,

    And for those of us animal lovers – whether pet sitters, or pet owners, or caretakers extraordinaire:

    Did I help animals?
