Might I Have Any Impact on the "Christians" in My Family — Besides Puzzling Them? A Guest Post by IRENE

"Dead certainty is for corpses" -- Rose Rosetree in "The Empowered Empath"

“Dead certainty is for corpses.”
— Rose Rosetree in “The Empowered Empath”

My heart goes out  — and my respect twirls directly over — to Blog-Buddy IRENE. Today she has written a powerfully touching guest post about growing up in a “Christian” family.

Note: In today’s post, not just my introduction, I’m the one to put “Christian” in quotes. (Not IRENE’s idea.)

Because, really! Jesus Christ didn’t come to teach bigotry, self-righteousness, and hatred — did he?

Or is there an alternate “New Testament”? (And, quite possibly, an alternate version of “Earth,” simultaneously lived within this same world I inhabit? 😉 )

Just today, the New York Times carried an article,Pope Francis suggests Donald Trump is ‘Not Christian’ And if the Catholic Pope can use the term “Not Christian” along with so many others, I think it’s safe for a humble observer like me to at least start using some judicious quotation marks to convey irony.

Random "Bad Energies"? Fear Them Not.

It’s so rare at this blog to read “Energy fear”-talk. I’m inspired to leap in today to clear up a bit of that kind of thinking. It crept into a blog comment, probably by accident.

Sure, much of New Age Spirituality today emphasizes fear of people who aren’t positive, or checking one’s energies constantly to avoid being “contaminated.”

However well meant all this self-healing is, this aura reader doesn’t find the results to be terribly encouraging. You can read about the unintended consequences of energy fears in “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy,” including the chapter summarizing aura reading research I did into 50 devoted teachers of Law of Attraction.

In general, energy fears about everyday life aren’t warranted.

This is one of the reasons why this blog is proudly Post-New-Age. The field of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) offers you a clear alternative to working hard at practices for perpetually working on yourself energetically: clearing, grounding, shielding, protecting your energies, etc.

Energy fears run rampant in this Age of Awakening, when everyone can notice energies. But that doesn’t make such fears realistic.

Aura Reading Movie Review Starring Jennifer Lawrence. A Guest Post by ISABELLA CATES

Jennifer Lawrence, ready for her aura reading.

Jennifer Lawrence, ready for her aura reading.

Jennifer Lawrence always delights me… when I see her on talk shows.

Watching her, I stay right on the glittery surface — Because, hey, I’m a Skilled Empath and have developed quite decent skills at engaging in life humanly unless doing Technique Time.

Watching Jennifer Lawrence that way, she seems like the ultimate party girl, so fun, and having so much fun. Yet when ISABELLA sent me today’s guest post, and I clicked onto the photo of Jennifer Lawrence playing Jennifer, what was my immediate reaction, right on the surface of human perception.

One look at her expression and body language and I went “Uh-oh.”

Renew Valentine's Day Sweetness with This Poem from MELODEE. A Guest Post.

In celebration of love.

Love can help you move forward on your path to Enlightenment

“You’re different.” I think, as I gaze at you across the table for the first time.

“You’re funny!” I muse, as I laugh out loud at something you say.

“You’re intelligent.” I study, as I learn something new.

“You listen!” I sing inside, as I see you stay present with me as I talk.

A Spiritual Snapshot of Supreme Court Justice Antoinin Scalia

Curious about Antonin Scalia, the late Supreme Court Justice?

Curious about Antonin Scalia, the late Supreme Court Justice?

Scalia spent his last day on earth on a shooting trip in Texas. That night he died peacefully in his sleep.

Conservatives mourn the loss of a hero. The staunch Catholic Justice defended his faith like a legal Fundamentalist. If a right wasn’t included in America’s glorious Bible — I mean Constitution — then that right should never be acknowledged.

True, other Americans are not still living in 1787, the year the Constitution was signed. Evidently to Antonin Scalia, that made no difference.

Some of his special jjudicial achievements include:

  1. Bush v. Gore, 2000
  2. Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 2010
  3. Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, 2014
  4.  Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 1992:

You can read about more of Scalia’s fabulous conservative judicial activism here, in an article that presents a Scalia judicial summary.

Yes, the Supreme Court Justice was highly influential. I gather that, to him, the views animating the above-mentioned decisions were perfectly aligned with being a follower of Jesus Christ. Interesting…

Enjoy This Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Let today be a holiday, a holy day of wonders.

For, once you wake up and begin,

your heart will sing

just because, just because.


Celebration’s in the air. Companionship’s delightful.

Even if you must work today

it feels like play

just because, just because.


Gifts and parties wherever you go, it’s great to be invited.

Empaths, Beware Confusing Results with the Path

Let's explore how the system for Empath Empowerment® can prevent going off in unproductive directions.

Let’s explore how becoming a skilled empath with Empath Empowerment® differs from going in less productive directions.

Today’s post is for all of you who are using the system of Empath Empowerment®. Actually it’s for any of you who wonder why teaching empath skills is trickier than you might suppose.

Especially, today’s article is dedicated to DELPHINE. She’s smart. She’s growing fast. She’s enthusiastic about Empath Empowerment.

And she’s game to get as much as she can from this blog, personal sessions, and my group for empaths on Facebook.

Recently she inspired one of those funky “Teachable Moments” that occurs occasionally, either at this blog or on my Facebook Group for Empath Empowerment Skills.

Here’s What Happened, As Close to DRAMA as RES Gets

Empath Empowerment® Basics on a Podcast

Connie Bowman has interviewed me on Empath Empowerment®

Connie Bowman has interviewed me on Empath Empowerment®

Empaths, have you thought about this lately? We’re so lucky to have this community of people who know a lot about being an empath. We’re seeking and finding ourselves as empaths, using skills that really work.

I’m reminded of that today. Because I’m giving you the opportunity to learn from a podcast that I did quite recently with Connie Bowman, a talented performer and interviewer who has previously done a podcast with me about Face Reading Secrets ®.

Connie is very new to understanding how to use her considerable talent as an empath, so she has asked a lot of questions about the basics.

As an empath sophisticate, you can view the podcast that I’ll share with you here in two quite different ways:

  • Review basic information about Empath Empowerment®
  • Notice the contrast between what the interviewer was expecting and what I delivered — including the title and description that have been given to the podcast.


Face Reading Senator Bernie Sanders

Rose Rosetree loves to read faces

Rose Rosetree loves to read faces

Today’s face reading is the first in an occasional series of profiles of American presidential and (one of these days) vice-presidential candidates. Sometimes face readings, sometimes aura readings, maybe the occasional Skilled Empath Merge.

My friend Bill Bronrott inspired me to get started already. Bill has served in the Maryland House of Delegates, then accepted a Presidential appointment at the U.S. Department of Transportation. Bill helped to Launch Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He also helped me unforgettably in the early days of my career. So when Bill talks, I listen.

Today we’ll start with face reading one of the two winners of yesterday’s presidential primary in New Hampshire, Senator Bernie Sanders. (Here’s a profile of Sanders in a liberal magazine, “The New Yorker.”)

Aura Reading Movie Review Starring Brie Larson

Idris Elba, ready for his aura reading.

Brie Larson, ready for her aura reading.

Well, golly! This has been some weird set of aura reading Academy Award Nominee-type Readings. So far we’ve had that unexpectedly disturbing one of Leonard DiCaprio, plus our not entirely fun-some aura research into actors Idris Elba and John Boyega.

This morning I woke up thinking, “Let’s go for some contrast today. How about an actress? Might I please, please explore a more lighthearted role that doesn’t involve an actor’s protracted near-death experience?”
Of course, I’m also committed to researching folks who got the most nominations in our Contest for This Year’s Aura Reading Movie Reviews. So… I settled on an excellent cheese. Excuse me, an actress.  Brie Larson was nominated by DONNA and also JESS, who wrote:
