Deeper Perception Made Practical

Comparison Aura Reading of Darlene Zschech, Famed for Addictive Church Music

Spiritual sleepwalking -- does it impress you?

Spiritual sleepwalking — does it impress you?

Does God really need the help of performers like Darlene Zschech?

Does Jesus really “want” or “need” for you to surrender your normal thinking and feeling to another human being… even someone as pretty as that Darlene… in order to have a “sacred” experience?

Oh, I think not.

Look at this world, peopled by incarnated souls like you and me who have free will. Are we weird exceptions to Robot World,  where the “good Christians” or “Enlightened People” are really self-actualized?

Or maybe the whole point of living on earth is to actually grow spiritually, which includes your sacred self-authority in its many forms!

Are your mind and heart really some garbage, to be hypnotically numbed into submission? Oh, I think not.

Sometimes there will be a mystical experience where a person reaches towards God, and maybe God also reaches back. Whatever the mysterious dynamics of that loving relationship, it sure doesn’t involve being hypnotized under false pretenses by some other human being.

And, yes, it still counts as false pretenses if the trance-inducer is just plain confused about what she is doing. Today I’ll be researching Darlene Zschech, based on watching her perform addictive church music on a YouTube video.

No, I really don’t care why she does what she does, or the many layers of complicated belief and denial that may drive her conscious belief system.

I’m simply going to research her aura, at the start of one performance. Then a second time, well into that same performance. Let’s see what shows energetically and subconsciously.

For Pity’s Sake, Be a Smart Post-New Age Consumer

Elsewhere at this blog I’ve written about the dangers of staring into somebody’s eyes or receiving attunements, downloads, initiations through a human being who (supposedly) has been authorized to change your consciousness. I’d especially invite you to check out this popular post: Hypnosis OR Meditation. Know the difference.

Choose instead teachers and energy healers who respect your free will, who co-create with God. Neither Almighty God nor Jesus nor Buddha nor Krishna nor other Divine Beings would ever take you over in that revolting manner.

And, by all means, avail yourself of the skills of ethical professional hypnotists. None of whom will sneak you into a trance for their own personal gain.

Today’s article was inspired by Comments #58-60 by SUZ and #65-66 by IRENE KR at this discussion: How Your Favorite Music Reveals Your Vibrational Needs

And for nuts and bolts about aura reading itself, skip down to the end of today’s article.

If you wish to read auras along with me, go to Darlene Zschech’s “Shout” to the Lord. Incidentally, I don’t think that God is hard of hearing. Or stupid. And it does strike me as fascinating to think that beautiful seekers of God would believe… they need to get God’s attention that way. Oh well, gotta love Earth School!

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

You’ll find that at 0:25 minutes into the video

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

For this, fast-forward to 7:42 minutes into the video

Root Chakra Databank for Connection to Physical Reality

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

Fills the room + 2 inches. A maternal, caring way of being present with the people in the room, comfortable in her surroundings.

Purposely settling in to her surroundings in order to make everyone feel comfortable.

Note: This strong connection to physical reality correlates strongly with success and making money. You can learn a lot more about this well-researched connection here.

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

50 miles. Not only does this chakra databank have an expanded size, Darlene Zschech feels expanded. As though the sound of Jesus is going out to the ends of the earth.

She feels a strong emotion of great blessedness enhance her experience of being human, in her surroundings.

To me it’s a combination of sentimental, very sweet prettiness and… a missionary drive.

As someone who lived for years in a cult (an entirely different type of spiritual organization) I recognize that missionary drive, as a feeling that “If only everyone would join our Movement, the world would become like a heaven.”

Well yes, just about everyone in a cult feels that way about their Movement.

Is Darlene Zschech involved in a cult? I don’t have enough information to say, one way or another. Seems to me that, while performing, she does have a feeling of bravely telling The Truth, along with others, a Great Truth that “everyone needs to hear.”

Belly Chakra Databank for Sex Drive

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

90 miles. Darelene has a strong, healthy interest in sex. It gets turned up while she performs. This isn’t a maternal type of sex drive, either, as you might think from the previously-read chakra databank.

Performing excites her. Her sex drive turns up, the energy of performing heats up. She performs in a manner that is very excited, very engaged.

Again, it is common for performers with a strong sex drive to be more successful than those who are energized more than other aspects of life.

St. Augustine was famously wild in his younger days, but that changed. Unfortunately I can’t research how his aura evolved, regarding his Sex Drive chakra databank. Not unless one of you Blog-Buddies can provide comparison photos. 😉

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

Fills the room. Darlene Zschech’s performance could be compared to a sublimated sort of making love. At this stage in the love-fest, she is experiencing something equivalent to the afterglow of an orgasm.

This aura reader will note that complex dynamics do occur with sexual energy and other energies, including with some performers. Darlene Zschech is hardly unique in this way.

Also, I have read many photos of public prayers of Christian Fundamentalists at anti-(whatever) rallies. Fairly often there is a strong dynamic that involves sexual energy. Technically experiences of a spiritual nature are entirely different.

Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for (Self-Based) Self-Confidence

Since the context for today’s comparison aura reading is music that aims to link people to Jesus, I think it’s worth noting that the healthy functioning of this chakra databank is about one’s human life. Whether Darlene Zschech is a reununciate (like a nun) or a householder (like a mega-sucessful singer at mega-churches), it is healthy to have self-confidence be about one’s human life.

Plenty of other chakra databanks are about being a world server, not a human individual. For today’s aura reading research, I have selected only one of these, and it comes last.

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

Fills the room. A very strong self confidence animates Darlene Zschech. Her belief system reminds me of that famous hymn by Martin Luther, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.”

Darlene Zschech feels totally right, righteous, supported, theologically correct, and 100% certain tht she is doing something wonderful here by singing.

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

Fills the room. Darlene Zschech feels masterful, important. Personally she feels satisfied that she has been a means to move everyone in the audience into the same kind of state she was trying to get them to feel.

Note: Given Darlene Zschech’s belief system, given with her current knowledge of how consciousness works and what happens with people’s auras (probably not too much), guess what? There is no distinction between facilitating a group trance, or hypnosis, versus helping people to have an authentic spiritual experience of personal connection to Jesus (or any other form of the Divine).

Heart Chakra Databank for (Self-Based) Emotional Self-Esteem

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

90 miles. Darlene Zschech’s chops as a performer take over. She strongly feels a combination of maternal love for the audience and a passionate, almost sexual, love for Jesus.

As a kind of process, Darlene Zschech is intensifying the good feelings she has as a person, projecting them ever-stronger, then feeling them ever stronger. This performance cycle is in progress in the split second caught in this aura photo.

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

15 feet. This chakra databank has changed a lot. There is an emotional and sexually charged overlay within this part of Darlene Zschech’s aura. Her self-esteem is high, and tangled up with beliefs that support an interpretation that she is feeling the love of Jesus, is receiving special blessings, etc.

For perspective, everyone (and in any state of consciousness), can feel very loved by any form of God. Or any human being.

What does this have with a spiritual experience, spiritual awakening, or Enlightenment? Not a thing, necessarily.

Many of you Blog-Buddies know that Enlightenment is not a mood, right? If you’re interested in learning more on this topic, here are a couple of links:

Throat Chakra Databank for Verbal Integrity

Yum, the chakra databank about telling the truth. Given what a person understands and believes consciously, how congruent is that with subconscious connection to what is authentically true?

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

2 inches. Here is what I find, folks. At a subconscious and energetic level (surely not consciously), it’s a big act. Darlene Zschech knows that she’s manipulating the truth, and there’s a slimy quality to this particular chakra databank.

A denial process of longstanding habit is part of this turgid, fascinating chakra databank at this time.

It will be interesting to read the comparison photo. Does the power and spiritual truth of this performance sweep away all personal doubts or transform human limitations, however temporarily?

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

1/8 inch. Verbal integrity is entirely shut down at this time.

In the tiny puddle of this chakra databank, after all that performing, the quality is quite beautiful, really. Darlene Zschech is deeply involved in hypnotizing the group. Combined with her belief system, this feels to her like “surrender.”

Just to be clear, this Enlightenment Coach assures you that there are many degrees of spiritual surrender, all the way from murderous psychosis to a sacred way of co-creating with Jesus (or other forms of God). Without context like aura reading, “surrender” tells you nothing.

Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Jesus

This is one of Darlene’s many optional chakra databanks, related to lifestyle and the use of free will. Everyone has many of these; they are not universal and may not last for a lifetime. You can still read 50 chakra databanks at anyone’s Third Eye Chakra or other major chakra.

Darlene Zschech’s Aura Pre-Music

1/8 inch. At this particular time, the chakra databank flatlines. Although it could always come back and function beautifully — gee, maybe it will in my reading of her comparison aura picture.

What’s in here now feels good and comfortable, and quite habitual.

“Jesus has made me a star.” Darlene Zschech has a feeling of great specialness.

And really, why wouldn’t she? How might she know the difference between being blessed with human fame and weath versus having a direct experience, in consciousness, with the lively presence of Jesus?

Especially as somebody who has seldom (or possibly ever) in this lifetime had a clear experience of spiritual connection or awakening….

Darlene Zschech’s Aura After Seven Minutes of Performing

1/8 inch. Zero connection to Jesus. Very little awareness at all. Such is Darlene Zschech’s experience as she sings about Jesus, for Jesus, to people who wish to experience Jesus.


Illusions abound here at Earth School. So much mislabelling happens, and not necessarily on purpose.

If you have never liked this sort of music, whether Christian or Taoist or whatever, you may find that today’s aura reading explains a lot about WHY this sort of music bothers you.

But just to be fair, every fan of Darlene Zschech doesn’t necessarily have a connection to Jesus that mostly involves emotionalism and re-routed sexual energy. I know some lovely, lovely Christians who could be in a group like the audience in this YouTube. And these Christians have a graced and direct connection to Jesus. It shows up in glorious ways, like a magnificent Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Jesus.

Music doesn’t make that happen, one way or another.

And spiritual teaching doesn’t necessarily make for the results promised, either.

Spiritual teachers can authentically teach what they claim, or not. Techniques that are offered may work as advertised, or not.

To tell the difference, might I suggest developing energetic literacy? Speaking of which…

Nuts and Bolts about Aura Reading

To an aura reader with Stage Three Energetic Literacy, every photo is an aura photo. The same with every video or TV show, paused.

In keeping with my policy about meticulously honoring photo copyrights, I no longer provide links to pictures saved on services like Photobucket. What is your best choice for being able to see the image referred to in a blog post like this? Stay current as a reader, maybe checking in at this blog once a week or more often.

When reading an older article, you may not be able to find the same YouTube I used originally. In any case Google Images is an easy way to find photos of this public figure.

What if you want to read Darlene Zschech’s aura too?

Whatever your current level of energetic literacy, you Blog-Buddies are invited to join me by doing your own aura reading, using the same photos used here.

  • I’d recommend the “Reading Auras from Photos” technique in Read People Deeper (Start on Page 35 with the paperback rather than the eBook. )
  • Or substitute a Skilled Empath Merge, using the “Magic Picture” technique in Become the Most Important Person in the Room (Start on Page 201, if you’re reading the paperback rather than the eBook).
  • Many of my students who want to use their lifelong talent for reading auras prefer to start with the 100+ techniques in my how-to, Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.

One way or another, isn’t it fascinating to use energetic literacy skills to learn about Darlene Zschech.

    Hey, we’re just five comments away from 26,000 comments at the blog. I wonder who will post that one. 🙂

    Meanwhile, I want to thank all of you Blog-Buddies, clients, students, and participants at my Empath Empowerment SKILLS Group on Facebook.

    You teach me and inspire me every day. Today’s blog post was the direct result of outstanding comments over the last day from SUZ and IRENE KR.

    Grace W says:

    Fascinating, Rose.

    So then is it safe to say that while Darlene is creating this addictive church music, she is basically in spiritual shutdown?

    I interpret your reading to say that she’s not actually in spiritual addiction, though she’s performing this addictive music.

    I am off base here?

  3. 3

    GRACE, what a clever question. You score at least a double. Maybe two home runs. 😉

    Score a point for… This aura reading does suggest that like many living today in this Age of Awakening, Darlene Zschech IS in spiritual shutdown.

  4. 4

    Those of you who have gained skills of Stage 3 Energetic Literacy — basic skill for accurate and fluent aura reading — may already know that most Fundamentalists in any religion are living in spiritual shutdown.

    Most, not all. Most. Plus others who aren’t especially religious.

  5. 5

    And score a point for understanding that a professional hypnotist — or performer who isn’t a professional hypnotist but still puts people in trances — isn’t necessarily doing anything other than putting people in trances.

  6. 6

    In a hypnotic trance, a person becomes extra-suggestible.

    Some folks, like probably those in Darlene Zschech’s audience, are being given comforting and sweet suggestions that tend to intensify the spiritual shutdown.

  7. 7

    In other groups, like the Taoist one that SUZ mentioned in her recent comment, the programming suggestions can encourage spiritual addiction.

    Also comforting and sweet suggestions of other varieties, such as one’s superiority at belonging to a particular “Movement.”

  8. 8

    To find out how JOE or GLADYS is actually doing, there’s no substitute for aura reading.

    Definitely don’t believe claims made about the music, the spiritual group, how the religion automatically “saves” everyone, etc.

    I have only made it to the first Root Chakra reading, and already laughing my head off. Oh, my! Okay, back to reading.

    Forgive me if I have insulted anyone. Those of us who have been there are entitled to laugh a little …

    Suz says:

    What an amazing read.

    Thank you, Rose, for the thoughts in your article’s Conclusion. That is just what I wanted to say over in the other blog post, but could not find the words.

    Louise says:

    Been there, and I wonder if this type music in some hyper-christian churches keeps them coming back every week for that hypnotic “feeling”.

    Glad I’m out of that circle. I never did enjoy the music and the begging and pleading to jesus and god even while there.

    Dana20 says:

    I started watching the video but only made it in a few seconds of her talking.

    Thank you for reading what was going on aurically, both pre and during singing! I’m especially glad that you read the Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Jesus. So fascinating!

    Kira says:

    Very interesting!

    Irene Kr says:

    Very fascinating. Thanks for this, Rose.

    When I was in that environment, it felt slimy and weird and vaguely (or not so vaguely) hypocritical even though I had no way to explain what I was experiencing. This clarifies that a lot.

    Three cheers for energetic literacy!

  15. 15
    Irene Kr says:

    The general state of spiritual shutdown in fundamentalists also explains why I could just never seem to click with them, no matter how often I told myself that was the “right” thing to do. Definitely not my path for this life!

  16. 16

    Wonderful comments, SUZ, LOUISE, DANA20, KIRA, IRENE KR.

    And I also want to acknowledge something noteworthy about your blog contributions lately, IRENE KR. Comments like these you added today reveal such a rapid development of understanding about energetic literacy and personal growth.

    Makes this teacher very happy. 🙂

    Suz says:

    I got to wondering about the belly chakra energy. I know only a little from my qi gong study (and a tiny bit of taoist tantra), but do understand that the energy from there is not only sexual, but generative, creative, restorative. It is yin, shakti, female.

    So I am wondering if the energy she is showing from that chakra is something of creativity or rather than just raw sex. Or is that a different nadi?

    Julie says:

    The comments that follow the video are interesting too, (some of them) full of the rigidness of total certainty.

  21. 21
    Julie says:

    This kind of music reminds me a lot of the music I heard growing up in the church. Sweet, slow, giving a kind of pleasant social security. I couldn’t go very far with that spiritually.

  22. 22
    Julie says:

    Although by contrast there are some Christian singers that do evoke a spiritual response in me. Singers like Brandon Heath and Chris Tomlin. I don’t seek them out, but when I hear a song on the radio by them I can feel a really glorious spiritual connection.

  23. 23
    Julie says:

    I’m not religious but do have the background and can connect that way, on occasion.
