Deeper Perception Made Practical

Why I Believe in Developing Deeper Perception

There are so many beautiful perspectives on Enlightenment and subtle perception!

There are so many beautiful perspectives on Enlightenment and subtle perception!

It’s delightful to read the blog written by my friend DAVID BUCKLAND. Sure enough, that’s what I did bright and early this Sunday morning. I find the clarity and erudition about higher states of consciousness to be unmatched by any other Enlightenment expert I know.

However, that doesn’t mean I always agree with him.

This morning I opened up an article on The What and How of Subtle Perception. DAVID gives a beautiful analysis and context for what he calls “subtle perception” and I call “deeper perception” and still others call “celestial perception.”

At “Observations on the Road Home,” David advises, “If such things do begin to show up that’s fine. We should allow but not invest in them.”

What do I find? Just the opposite. We can do far more than allow. We can actively pursue.

Just as we can do far more than allow Enlightenment to unfold. We can actively pursue.

Skills for subtle perception (what I call energetic literacy) can definitely be taught. And learned.

As one among the world’s many Enlightenment Coaches, it is my opionion that learning these particular skills is good for your spiritual evolution. At least if you’re using a system like Aura Reading Through All Your Senses®, which invites you to a process where you co-create with the Divine.

In fact, here’s a small technical note. When I wrote my book by that name, and co-created that system, it was done by co-creating with a member of the Holy Tradition of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: One of those dudes invoked every time I performed a puja, whether as a teacher of Transcendental Meditation or as a “Governor of the Age of Enlightenment or just as a person in my own home, seeking inspiration.

And he volunteered, BTW. I wouldn’t have dared to ask him to help me.

I won’t elaborate further, but just mentioned this to make a point. This generosity of such a graced being towards me, just because I was willing to learn and teach deeper perception — this helps to explain why I, personally, believe in developing this. That Ascended Master, as I’ll call him, was evidently of the opinion that teaching skills of energetic literacy could be quite compatible with the sacred flame of Hinduism.

And with due respect and humility, I would add, “Perfectly compatible with all of the world’s other mystical traditions.”

Maybe the Difference of Approach Comes Down to “Capture the Fort”

“Capture the Fort” is a traditional perspective from Hinduism that says, in essence:

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Okay, that quote comes from the Christian Bible, Matthew 6:33. Many religious traditions teach something similiar:

Lovers of God know it’s wiser to avoid distractions.

But must we also prove our love of God by staying illiterate? How about only allowing monks to learn how to read or write? I thought that went out with the Gutenberg Bible!

BTW, If you’re interested in learning more about Capture the Fort, I have previously written about it here. And I also had quite a discussion about it when Rick Archer interviewed me for “Buddha at the Gas Pump.”

Back when I studied with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he clearly espoused Capture the Fort. And he expressed a perspective like DAVID’s, that deeper perception is just a “natural side effect” of evolution.

But we’re living in a different age now. It’s not like when I studied with Maharishi in Mallorca in 1971 and all us TMers were meditating our brains out. Now it’s the era of 20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time, Tops.

The Best Perspective May Be Historic. We’re in the Age of Awakening Now.

In this Age of Awakening (which began Dec. 21, 2012) many of the ground rules for human life have changed.

Among the people I have helped to cross the threshold into Enlightenment, awakening skills for co-creation with the Divine accelerated their spiritual evolution.

So I wouldn’t be so quick to expect that, living today, our best choice is to be vague about subtle perception.

Let’s Open This Topic for Discussion

Admittedly, a blog called “Deeper Perception Made Practical” is a self-selected group. 😉

Still, this blog covers a wide variety of topics. Some of you Blog-Buddies are here just for the face reading, or the energy SKILLS for self-healing, etc.

I’m curious enough to ask for comments from those of you who:

  • Are big seekers (and maybe finders) of God
  • Have learned some aura reading skills, or learned to do Skilled Empath Merge
  • Or you have been uplifted by reading articles here about deeper perception
  • Or maybe all of the above.

What do you think? Is it better to hang out and wait until subtle perception mysteriously develops?

Note about that waiting: I know folks who live in Enlightenment who haven’t yet developed more than Stage One Energetic Literacy — general feelings about energy. Even these folks may be waiting for the rest of their lives.

    I am still behind in my learning, but at least I have an excuse—I’m having surgery on Wednesday that I’ve been preparing for for over a month, and I have a (probably unrelated) medical mystery to solve as well.

    So I’m speaking as one who has been uplifted by reading articles here. This is definitely something I want to learn how to do. Enough to perhaps eventually pursue it full-time.

    Big seeker and finder of God … check

    Have learned some aura reading skills and learned to do skilled empath merge … check

    Have been uplifted by reading articles here about deeper perception … check

    Jessica Gates says:

    I’m not yet spiritually enlightened, and I’m not patient enough to wait until whenever that might happen to learn skills that are so important to me.

    But for people who aren’t really interested in deeper perception, I don’t see that there would be a point in learning it.

    Jessica Gates says:

    When a person evolves to that point where deeper perception is just part of the experience might be soon enough for those people.

    We only have 24 hours a day, and an infinite variety in priorities.

    Jessica Gates says:

    Before I met you, Rose, I had no idea that I didn’t have to pursue psychic development to read auras or learn other skills of deeper perception.

    I’d always wanted to learn energy healing and energy reading, but the idea of being a psychic was a real turn off to me.

    Co-creating with the Divine? THAT is what thrills my soul!

    David B says:

    Hi Rose
    Actually, you raise an important point. To be clear, I don’t dismiss such development as the rest of the article and many other articles attest to.

    That comment was only in regards to not making a big deal out of some random experience. I get the dream interpretation and experience questions all the time too.

  7. 7
    David B says:

    Getting caught up in a story about the content of some experience is not very useful. Being a little circumspect is healthier.

    Getting Skills is a whole different story. In that context, developing Deeper Perception is a good thing.

  8. 8
    David B says:

    I fully support that. I also appreciate the value of skills having come to this arena without them.

    One of the amusing side effects of reading Roses books and blog is discovering how many skills where lacking. Then reflecting on how I crudely adapted.

  9. 9
    David B says:

    And then there’s Rose. Coming up through a similar process but with different gifts and outlook, she turned that stumbling into real skills for everyone.

    Amazing accomplishment.

    JESSICA, each of the points in your Comment #2 reveals a world of beauty.

    Not everyone who reads your comments here knows that you are a professional RES Practitioner. But I’m quite sure that every one of your clients benefits from all this.

  11. 11

    I hope it doesn’t embarrass you when I call attention to how rare it is for a person to feel a vivid lifelong connection to the Divine.

    A connection strong enough to show remarkably in many chakra databanks.

    It is one of those very special things about you, Jessica.

    David B says:

    re: Comment 11
    Lovely, Rose. And the flowering once that threshold is crossed? Whoa!

  13. 13

    Thanks for your other comments here, too, JESSICA.

    I did kind of a double-take at your bold words, “But for people who aren’t really interested in deeper perception, I don’t see that there would be a point in learning it.”

  14. 14

    Golly, sometimes it is SO OBVIOUS that I do not come to my work as a person with a sales background.

    Wouldn’t you think that I would have published at least one blog post by now about “Why Read Auras?”

    Laughing at self! More to learn for me, that’s for sure!

  15. 15

    So the link in my last comment is to the closest I’ve come to that sort of article, which is partly about the actress Jessica Chastain but does have a section about why a person might wish to read auras.

    Here’s the easiest way to answer the question, “Why on earth would a practical person benefit from developing energetic literacy?” Read the “Table of Techniques” in “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.”

  16. 16

    And, haha, I figured that would be an easy thing for me to find to link to.

    But no, no!

    So I just took a little break, found it, and have drafted a blog post to make live… WITHIN THE WEEK.

    Yeah, JESSICA. You’ve inspired me, not in the usual ways but I’ll take it. 😉

    Incidentally, Blog-Buddies, when I went over to Amazon.com to find that Table of Contents, I couldn’t help but see a **Two Star pan** of “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.”

    You know, if you ever, ever like one of my books, please write a review over at Amazon.com (in your country). I try to avoid looking at reviews from non-appreciators. The only thing to do is to add ones from people who actually get what my books are about.

  18. 18

    Thanks in advance to every one of you who does this favor.

    Amazon.com isn’t just a bookstore for this indie publisher.

    It’s by far the biggest influence on potential book buyers, and also on foreign publishers who are considering purchasing translation rights to my work.

    Deeper perception is useful to find the deep truth about someone.

    Behavior, body language, and words are surface levels of information and information signaling.

    But good skills in aura reading provide the individual the ability to learn the deep truth about someone, beyond lies or mixed messages. Aura reading smashes through illusions, suppositions, and rationalizations. Interpersonally and professionally, good aura reading skills make life a lot clearer, though not necessarily easier.

    Kira says:

    Deeper perception is useful to find the deep truth about oneself, too.

    You can make guesses, even very well educated ones, about what activities or products or foods might be good for you and thrill your soul, but deeper perception can tell you for sure. And it can surprise you.

  21. 21
    Kira says:

    I suppose I left out in Comment 1 that I’m a finder of God. I skipped over that one because I never thought of myself as a seeker of God; I was a huge seeker of myself, though.

    Finding God while seeking myself was unexpected.

  22. 22
    Grace W says:

    Leo, I agree that aura reading skills make life a lot clearer, though not necessarily easier.

    As I’ve become clearer myself and when not even doing aura reading, I’ve seen that it can be tricky to deal with these truths we are able to see that others don’t.

  23. 23

    Points well taken, LEO, KIRA, and GRACE.

    I know, sometimes life on earth is so hard.

    What consoles me? Based on some sessions I’ve facilitated with Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis have convinced me that every human being made a life contract before arrival. Each of us knew just what we were getting into…

  24. 24

    Not only a chance to evolve rapidly (a given with any human incarnation) but the thrilling adventure of witnessing the once-in-an-eon transition of participating as earth has moved into the Age of Awakening.

    And for each of us, maybe the chance to make a beautiful difference for quality of life here, shaping the centuries and millennia to come.
