Rachel McAdams, ready for her aura reading movie review

At our Contest for This Year’s Aura Reading Movie Reviews, Rachel McAdams has been nominated by two of our Canadian Blog-Buddies, BRANDI and CATHY.

What a shock! I’ll be researching a role that is way less freaky and scary than any of the other performances that I’ve researched for you’all so far for Academy Awards 2016.

As you may know, aura reading and Skilled Empath Merge magnify the intensity of an experience. “Ordinary” people in everyday life become plenty dramatic, and they’re certainly entertaining enough to fascinate me.

So, with an anticipatory sigh of relief, let’s explore the depths of Rachel McAdams’ performance as…

A reporter. Just a reporter in that role, I hope.

Granted, in “Spotlight” she’s researching the Catholic Church’s clergy sex-abuse scandal… and only those who have seen the movie can tell me if the character has some hideous backstory.

Perhaps a vendetta related to her beloved twin brother? A wrecked and ruined altar boy, years later deceased due to drilling extremely large “stigmata” onto his wrists as a cry for help?

We’ll see. And by “we,” I mean “me, your intrepid aura reader.” 😉

Anyhow, here goes some aura research that’s bound to be fascinating, one way or another.

Get ready for today’s Aura Reading Movie Review

The Film:

“Spotlight” — Blog-Buddies, as always, my exercise in energetic literacy is done strictly by doing the aura reading. “Spotlight” is a movie that I have not seen. Not even the trailer….

The Movie Trailer for “Spotlight”

Plot Summary from the Oscar’s Official Website:

In 2001, the journalists of The Boston Globe‘s Spotlight team begin investigating Father John Geoghan, who is accused of molesting more than 80 boys.

As they dig deeper and acknowledge their paper’s own failings, the team uncovers a conspiracy of lawyers and government officials who helped the Boston Archdiocese hide the pedophilia of many priests and deny justice to the victims.

Incidentally, here’s a link to the Academy Awards Official Website for nominees in 2016.

In the Nominated Role as Best Supporting Actress:

As Sacha Pfeiffer, Rachel McAdams plays a reporter for The Boston Globe‘s Spotlight team during their inquiry into the Catholic Church’s clergy sex-abuse scandal.

Aura Reading Databank at the Root Chakra for Connecting to Physical Reality

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as herself

18 feet. Playful, joyful — Rachel McAdams would probably have a much bigger film career if she had been born into an era when entertainment could be lighthearted, even ennobling.

What a pure heart this actress has, with delicacy and sweetness galore. And, yes, spiritual light.

These qualities inform the kind of world she lives in, when not professionally playing pretend.

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as Sacha Pfeiffer

80 feet. Powerful. Masculine energy is a strong component of this character’s makeup, and she’s not afraid to lead with it. In this scene, that’s happening automatically.

Also, Sacha’s body is physically stronger, more muscular, and heavier than the nervous system of the actress known as “Rachel McAdams.” That heftiness is an intrinsic part of how Sacha relates to life around her.

Chakra Databank Change Points

One magnificent point. A splendid transformation indeed!

Aura Reading Databank at the Belly Chakra for Sex Appeal

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as herself

10 feet. Okay, second time noticing this in a row, I won’t ignore it. Rachel McAdams is hungry, chronically hungry.

One more “normal-looking” actress who is fulfilling the job requirement that is quite standard in today’s Hollywood, what I call “The Anorexic Ideal.”

Not that I’m accusing this sweet soul of technically being anorexic. I just long for the day when this sick idea of “beauty” goes the way of the corset and binding of the delicate little woman’s feet.

Soon as I began researching both chakra databanks, this and the last, the very first strong experience I had was “Feed me. I’m so hungry.”

Folks, can you imagine how hard it would be to live, let alone act in a movie, when you had to live with self-starvation?

I’m reasonably certain that this actress’ first thought — again and again — all day long — is the equivalent of:

“Feed me. — No. Push that into denial. I’ve made made my choice. If I want to have a real career, I’ve got to live this way.”

Okay, back to what’s special about this chakra databank belonging to Rachel McAdams.

At the time of this photo, Rachel McAdams doesn’t have enough physical energy to be terribly interested in sex, or to project it. She can do that if she has to. But at the time of this photo, it’s only a newspaper interview, for heaven’s sake.

Personally, I think that says a lot about Rachel McAdams’s balance as a person. For certain celebs, every occasion is a chance to “flaunt the merchandise.”

Heck, not just celebrities, right? We’ve all known people whose central sense of identity depends on flirtation. Or more.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Unless, perhaps, the highly-sexed individual happens to be a pedophile Catholic priest….

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as Sacha Pfeiffer

90 miles! Sex is a big deal for this character. The chakra databank for sex appeal over-functions, like other chakra databanks of Sacha’s related to sex.

In this character’s personal background there is sexual trauma (I suspect sexual abuse. And since this is a fictional person, I’ll go ahead and include that in my public reading. Usually I keep such suspicions off the blog.)

Sacha has overcome a great deal. The configuration of this chakra databank is a spot-on match for auras of some of my clients who were molested as young girls or boys. It was my privilege to help them to move out STUFF that kept the childhood horror alive subconsciously… and was limiting the rest of their lives.

So, to make a practical point about RES sessions for aura healing: if you know someone whose life seems to have been scarred by sexual trauma, if that person can function well enough to have a fairly normal life (even if suffering enormously in private), that person can probably be helped by one RES session at a time.

How many sessions does it take to get back to functioning as though that rape, or incest, etc. never happened? That depends. I can think of one client where all that took was one session. GLADYS went from being tormented every single day of her life to just being herself, having her life.

None of my clients with this sort of problems has needed dozens and dozens of sessions. Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) brings results relatively fast.

Back at this character, her entire personality is thrown out of balance because of STUFF that involves being victimized sexually.

Chakra Databank Change Points

One more (very brave) point.

Aura Reading Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra for Sharing Power in Relationships

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as herself

3 feet. At the time of this photo, Rachel McAdams doesn’t much care about winning or losing, power dynamics, or even making herself seem important.

She’s simply an artist. She loves to act. Thrives on the work.

Seems to me, Rachel McAdams would sacrifice just about anything so long as she can have the chance to act.

Awwwwwwww. Am I the only one getting a little mushy by this point in today’s aura reading?

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as Sacha Pfeiffer

Fills the room + 2  inches. For Sacha Pfeiffer, standing up for herself doesn’t come easily. It is a learned skill.

Yet, by now, this skill has become solidly established. Sasha won’t cringe before bullies, not ever. She’ll speak up and do what she needs to do, whether that feels comfortable to her or not.

One advantage of the considerable suffering this character has endured already… is that she knows full well how to carry on, stiff upper lip, regardless of how badly she feels.

Chakra Databank Change Points

Wow, one more Chakra Databank Change Point, so courageously earned!

Aura Reading Databank at the Heart Chakra for Emotional Self-Awareness

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as herself

27 feet. Although Rachel McAdams is fascinated by the human heart (hers included), she’s a sensible person. She has learned not to go overboard.

As for self-absorption, the bane of many a performer, Rachel McAdams isn’t made that way. Nor does this chakra databank contain STUFF that distorts her pure heart in that particular way… not at the time of this photograph, anyhow.

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as Sacha Pfeiffer

24 feet. Sacha Pfeiffer has developed an unusual kind of emotional self-awareness. It’s largely a construct.

Yes — what I’m about to describe is a very sophisticated creative choice, virtuosic for an actress, really.

At a subconscious level, Sacha Pfeiffer pays attention to her emotions as though she is courageous, bold, “Strong like a man.”

Systematically, for years, this character has been lying to herself, as though she never was a victim, was not shaped by being a victim, and never again can possibly be a victim. Why not? Because she is feeling just fine, thank you very much.

One of the fascinating qualities of Rachel McAdams’s performance here is how she changes her degree of sensitivity. Hardwired right into her nervous system, she is an empath, a Highly, Highly Sensitive Person.

Yet Sacha Pfeiffer has only moderate sensitivity. And, get this! Due to her particular way of “working on herself,” this character behaves as though she is a Highly INsensitive Person.

Golly, this makes me want to play chess with Rachel McAdams, to explore the creativity of her so-twisty, ingenious mind.

Of course this little fantasy assumes several things that might not pan out in reality, such as whether the actress plays chess, why she would wish to play with me, and what would happen if Rose Rosetree were to play a game of chess. (Something that I haven’t done since about 1970.)

Chakra Databank Change Points

One more glorious point!

Aura Reading Databank at the Throat Chakra for Verbal Integrity

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as herself

28 feet. There’s steel and strength to Rachel McAdams when she does what she loves best. And that is to communicate.

Even at the time of this aura picture, even though she’s not acting, she is in an interview. She’s still communicating. And to Rachel McAdams, that’s what life’s about — the chance to share, to educate, to say what’s true.

There’s no preachiness to it, just a deeply spiritual commitment to living in truth and waking up truth in others.

Okay, it’s official. I have just fallen in like with Rachel McAdams.

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as Sacha Pfeiffer

80 feet. Anger, old anger, dominates Sacha Pfeiffer’s version of “Telling the truth.”

Being involved in the expose of a sexual scandal? That would suit Sacha perfectly.

Chakra Databank Change Points

One more masterful chakra change point.

Aura Reading Databank at the High Chakra for Soul Thrill

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as herself

1/2 inch. Nearly shutdown, habitual for Rachel McAdams at the time of this photo.

The reason for shutdown is simple. Rachel McAdams is one of those actors who comes alive at the chance to settle into a role. As for being stongly invested in her own identity, or making that “self” happy? Not that interested, not yet.

Many of us don’t understand yet that each of us has a right — I would even call it an inalienable right — to PERSONAL, INDIVIDUATEDLY PERSONAL, HUMAN HAPPINESS. But there’s hope. We’re all living, after all, at Earth School. 🙂

Reading Rachel McAdams’s aura as Sacha Pfeiffer

90 miles. Soul thrill is overfunctioning for this character, in this scene, because she’s pursuing her dharma. It’s the job she was meant to do.

This job, oh yes! She has been prepared perfectly, by disposition and character and backstory.

Seldom in life is there such a confluence of who a person is, what she gets to do, and a social-sexual-religious cause that means so much in society’s collective consciousness.

Now that’s a superlative screenplay. And her character is just one, a role as supporting actress, eh? (Se what I did there? My fancy imitation there of a Canadian movie reviewer. Haha.)

Chakra Databank Change Points

Yet one more magnificent chakra databank change point has been earned by Rachel McAdams.

Conclusion, with Total Chakra Databank Change Points

What a beautiful and dedicated artist she is, that Rachel McAdams!

She wins 6 out of a possible 6 chakra databank change points.

Among other things, that makes her the only Oscar nominee we’ve researched at the blog this year who has come anywhere close. Not the far more famous Leonardo DiCaprio , not Jennifer Lawrence. Neither Brie Larson nor the acclaimed actors (not Oscar nominees) John Boyega and Idris Elba.

What a magnificent characterization Rachel Mcdams has achieved — with layers built upon layers, and such profound insight and compassion.

And, of course, the point of doing an aura reading movie review is that we’re researching what has changed at a SUBCONSCIOUS level, all the way down to the actor’s subtlest energies. To achieve even ONE chakra databank change point is a world-class achievement, and she scored full marks.

I feel ennobled, just having done this comparison aura reading.

To me, Blog-Buddies, this is what great movies can do. They can show us relatable human characters — not grotesquely warped characters, sensationalistically conceived — or people with “exciting, new” variations on problems that relatively few people have.

Great movies can educate us, open our hearts to compassion, and even ennoble us through inspiring example.

Do I plan to see “Spotlight” now? For sure.

This blog post will tell you more about my method of using energetic literacy for aura reading film criticism.


To learn more about the sequence of research I’ll use this year on some of the most interesting Academy Award nominees, see this Aura Reading Film Critique blog post.

It’s a very Age of Awakening form of movie criticism, researching which actors are able to change so deeply, it registers at their subconscious minds and chakra databanks.

    PS The link to the photo of her in the role came up blank. Here is what I found that did work.

    Another masterful reading, Rose, thank you so much for all these fascinating insights.

    I saw Rachel and her sister on the show ‘Who Do You Think You Are,’ and their joint sweetness and sincerity (and a little of what you were talking about with the lack of personal soul thrill) showed through there as well!

    CURIOUS AS EVER, thank you so much for that Comment #2 (also Comment #1).

    I went back and fixed the link in the blog post as well.

    Rachel says:

    Another great reading, Rose, thanks.

    I saw Spotlight a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.

    It was more like a docudrama than a traditional Hollywood film, and I remember reading beforehand that Rachel McAdams’s role was intriguing partly precisely because they did not do anything in the film to ‘sex up’ her role – she didn’t play anyone’s love interest, for example, she was a journalist, plain and simple, getting along fine with the men (no sexism in that office).

    Rachel says:

    It was refreshing to see a film that did not pander to the usual cliches – and that was about a really important issue, based on a true story.

    Great performance (the both of you).

    I’ve always quite liked Rachel McAdams, just on the surface level. I’ve always not really liked Jennifer Lawrence, just on the surface.

    I love reading Aura Readings, which do a lot to point to the WHY. I’m not actually crazy, but may have some wisdom in my surface level likes and dislikes, at least sometimes.

    Oh, so interesting! Glad to see that at least one of the nominees gets the full 6 points!

    Kylie says:

    Very refreshing to read an aura reading of somebody who isn’t spiritually addicted or seriously shut down, and of an actor who can really act.

    The part about how soul thrill in her life at this time relates only to acting reminds me of one of my favorite short stories by Kurt Vonnegut “Who Am I This Time”–where a shy actor and actress fall in love, but can only relate to each other when they are acting together in a movie.

    David B says:

    Thanks, Rose.
    The film is well done with excellent acting, illustrating a true story. Her character has a Catholic background and her mother remains devout. So the story creates personal challenges for her on several levels.

    Other characters are confronted with similar challenges and presented with reasons for backing off. But the further they go, the more widespread they discover it is.

    Isabella C. says:

    I’ve always admired Rachel McAdams!

    I always think of her performance in Wedding Crashers. It’s not the kind of movie you expect great acting from, but I remember being stunned by her performance.

  12. 12
    Isabella C. says:

    There was one scene in particular I rewound and watched again, I found her performance so moving. And that’s in Wedding Crashers!

    So Rachel McAdams is the kind of actress who dignifies an Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughan comedy with all her talent. I like that.

  13. 13
    Sandra says:

    Rachel McAdams is an empath, a talented actress, and has a pure heart–no wonder I like her.

  14. 14
    Irene says:

    This aura reading and the comments here put this film on my list of ones to watch. I’ve always liked Rachel McAdams and this helps me to understand why.

    And I’m always on the hunt for media that show female characters in ways that don’t cater to romantic (and sexist) clichés. Thanks for doing this one, Rose.

    Dana20 says:

    Thank you so much for this reading! I have always enjoyed her acting. In this reading I was especially interested in how she changed her sensitivity in the role. Yes, wow!

    And I love this: “Great movies can educate us, open our hearts to compassion, and even ennoble us through inspiring example.”
