Why, Spiritually, You Are a Hero

Being a hero

Spiritually, what does it mean to be a hero?

Why, spiritually, could you be a hero? May today’s blog post inspire you. Hint: spiritual heroes do not necessarily feel like heroes.

Funny old Earth School, in early years of this Age of Awakening. You happen to live here, and I do too.

If you are reading this post at my blog (or anything else I have published) it is pretty amazing you found it. As a post-New Age teacher, and a self-published writer, I’m not that easy to find.

Maybe you have noticed that I write a lot of things that are deeply counter-culture. In some cases, it’s downright offensive. Specifically, I  wind up often contradicting the cherished beliefs of the New Age establishment.

Somehow you have become interested in this. Evidently you have found some part of my work helpful. I’m glad. And for this to have happened, the credit goes to you.

Additional credit goes to the many people who have helped me in developing this field of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). You’ve been spreading it by word of mouth. You’ve been buying books and recommending them to others, etc. Thank you.

Tips for Working with Spirit Guides and Angels


Do you long for support from an angel or spirit guide?

Do you long for support from an angel or spirit guide?

Blog-Buddy CLAUDIA asked a great question today. Originally she placed this at the end of a blog post from 2013, What is channeling?.

This is such a hot topic today. I want to make sure her excellent question doesn’t get buried as Comment 26, way back in our archives. So let’s start a practical new conversation, open to all you Blog-Buddies. Even you lurkers!

As we get started, for clarity. minor edits to the original question are added.

When a responsible, sophisticated spiritual seeker wants to work with her spirit guides

I have a question about connecting and working to co-create with one’s personal guides and celestial team.

When Empath Empowerment Doesn't Seem to Work. A Guest Post by SANDY.

Connecting the dots about Empath Empowerment Skills

Connecting the dots about Empath Empowerment Skills

We have a real treat today, Blog-Buddies, for those of you who are empaths. In today’s guest post, SANDY courageously shares a really important saga about using her skills as an empath.

Heads up! An important part of SANDY’s saga is Imported STUFF. In case this term is new to you, Imported STUFF is 1 of the 15 kinds of STUFF that can be identified, and removed, with skills in this system of Energy Spirituality. Imported STUFF is a sign of being an unskilled empath.

So far I haven’t written a blog post about this yet, but I sure have written about Imported STUFF in my books for empaths. Because they teach how to develop empath skills which PREVENT your getting Imported STUFF.

For SANDY’s guest post I have added just some headings, minor edits, and links that explain some of the technical parts of her journal. Yes, SANDY has given us a miniature journal.

Living La Vita Empath, a Journal Summarized by SANDY

At the beginning of this journal, I planned to cover what I thought were teaching gaps in Rose’s workshops.

While reflecting and writing, I realized that the onus is on me to take what Rose taught and apply it to my situational needs. Rose cannot tell me what I need nor should she be expected to. She laid out the dots. It is up to me to connect them.

Becoming a Better Friend as a SKILLED Empath. A Guest Post by SARAH

Sarah, a better friend with Empath Empowerment®

Friendship matters. This blog is creating connections for friendship, and so is the new Empath Empowerment Skills Group on Facebook.

Offline, friendships can be improved so much by gaining skills for human-based spirituality, energetic literacy, and Empath Empowerment®.

Your stories about friendship are welcome here, Blog-Buddies, whether as short comments below or as longer comments that can become guest posts. Like today’s beauty from SARAH.

How lack of empath skills can limit our friendships

I’ve spent almost all of my adult life so far hanging out with stereotypically “nerdy” types, very brainy and somewhat flat emotionally.

I know that even though it was unconscious, a lot of the reason I gravitated towards these friends was not being a skilled empath yet.

How Wise Is It to Speculate About Past Lives?

Curious about your past lives?

Curious about your past lives?

Past lives may intrigue you or not. Either way: Don’t speculate about your past lives. Get expert help or leave it alone. Learn more here.

  • “Maybe Caitlin Jenner is transgendered because most of her past lives were female.”
  • “I’m sure I haven’t lived on earth for a very, very long time.”
  • “Two different psychics have told me about my past lives. Because they both told me the same kind of thing, I’m positive that what they told me is true.”

What do these ideas about past lives have in common?

How the Empath Gift of Spiritual Oneness Helps Me

Rose Rosetree, grateful that she is an empath

Last blog post I shared one of my worst nightmares ever, connected to the pesky side of Spiritual Oneness. Today we have a happier topic.

Now, what’s so wonderful about Spiritual Oneness?

Five different answers spring to mind immediately. Totally easily. Just the obvious examples, Blog-Buddies.

Mostly in today’s article,  I’m describing what it is like to have an empath gift that is habitually turned off in everyday life. (Through empath skills, not stifling yourself.)

Even turned off, each empath gift can be highly informative. And, on occasion, if Skilled Empath Merge is done, that gift really lights up deep knowing.

1. The personal fun

Bach, Gerard Manley Hopkins; Bette Midler and Beverly Sills and Gustavo Dudamel — there are so many composers, performers, writers, dancers and other artists who bring alive their personal quality of connection to God.

Then that artist spreads it around, conveys it. Either in the foreground or background.

The Pesky Side of a Pretty Uncommon Empath Gift, Spiritual Oneness

Many of us have been told, or sold, that “an empath feels other people’s feelings.” Is that ever a limited definition, ridiculous even!

If you think you might be an empath, I can teach you about 15 different empath gifts. Any one of them would qualify you to call yourself an empath. Like the one I’ll be describing today.

Spiritual Oneness has been discussed lately at my Empath Empowerment SKILLS Group on Facebook. It can be defined like this:

SPIRITUAL ONENESS is an empath gift that allows you to explore spiritual experience as it really is, no illusions, for another person. Especially how other people seek contact with a Higher Power.

And, because it is a “Oneness”-type gift, whatever you experience about someone else feels as though it is YOUR personal experience. Really, it is information about how another person is connecting to the Divine at that time.

Spiritual Oneness is one of the less common gifts that an empath can have.

If you have this one, congratulations. Not because having it makes you more special than other empaths — or other people — who do not have it. Instead, congratulations because having even one empath gift means that you are an empath for life. Which is a huge blessing.

Every empath gift is special, precious for life. Yet it creates pesky problems when you’re merely talented,  not yet skilled.

Comparison Aura Reading, from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner

“He is finally happy” read the caption for Bruce Jenner’s cover photo on People Magazine. And now she’s oh-so happy again. As Caitlyn.

Certainly Caitlyn seems to be springing from one peak experience of delight to the next. Unquestionably all this publicity is great for her career,  as she prepares the first promo for her eight-part docuseries, I Am Cait, premiering July 26 on E!.  “I’m the new normal,” she informs us.

I can only imagine how William Makepeace Thackeray, author of “Vanity Fair” may be lurching around in his grave. (Hint for those of you who haven’t read the classic novel: “Vanity Fair” is not meant as a term to evoke admiration.)

In her storied interview for Vanity Fair, Caitlyn tells the public about all her emotions doing the photo shoot, concluding:

“That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘that a boy, Bruce,’ pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.”

On the face of things, surface reality, this strikes me as crazy disingenuous. The woman has made her personal story into something more. Perhaps she is nobly educating humanity. Perhaps she is capitalizing on a trend. Perhaps she enjoys smashing people’s boundaries. Maybe it’s just an Olympic-style attempt to break records for TMI.

Personally I applaud the right of any person to identify  and express sexually in the way that is congruent. These days I’ve been reading “The Days of Anna Madrigal” by Armistead Maupin. Loving it. So far I’ve read or seen televised just about every book he has published.

Call for Stories. 10 Questions about Your Experiences with Aura Reading

Aura reading can be such big fun. Got stories, anyone?

Aura reading can be such big fun. Got stories, anyone?

One form of deeper perception that I use every day is the aura reading part of energetic literacy. Many of you Blog-Buddies have learned aura reading from me. It’s easy and natural.

Yet I’ve been told that the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses® is far, far ahead of where mainstream conversations are today.

Stories from you could help to move collective consciousness forward. Because personal stories can bring truth to life in a way that nothing else can. A human way.
