Quite a topic area has been opened up with yesterday’s article! Part 1 of a short series began to examine The Ugly Side of Seeking Enlightenment. And How Aura Reading Can Help You on Your Spiritual Path.
Usually this blog is reader-friendly. I’ll share my perspective to the extent that I think it can help you Blog-Buddies. Comments and blog posts are only personal to the extent I deem helpful or historically interesting.
But sometimes we experts at Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) have additional frustrations related to what is mainstream in New Age spirituality and mainstream ideas about energy, healing, and so forth.
Today RES Apprentice Leo Watts gives you a peek behind the usual curtain of discretion. Feeling brave? Or just curious?
Sharing the Counter-Culture Perspective of RES
As I’ve gained skills at Aura Reading and Aura Healing and Transformation, and grown in my confidence in being able to facilitate sessions of RES for others, I’ve sought to “spread the word” of what I do.
I’m still quite shy, as many people find it a bit odd when I tell them I can read auras and facilitate emotional and spiritual healing. They may think of it as “strange,” as otherwise I’m seemingly a well-adjusted adult.
But, since I believe RES or Real Effective Skills is so vital to our world now, I trudge on, increasingly immune to others’ judgment. These skills are just too useful and important, I believe. But I’m finding an interesting phenomenon.
Those who are most receptive to the idea of me being able to read auras and facilitate RES, are also those who love love love their New Age ideas.
They’ll quickly respond with “Oh ya, I love just opening myself up to energies.” Or “I’m intuitive, so I shut down my sense of self. I just want to be a vessel.”
I’m afraid to be rude and say that these ideas seem like fast tracks to Spiritual Addiction or Extreme Spiritual Addiction. Because I can tell how strongly they’re invested in “What’s meant to be” and “Working on manifesting on a specific vibrational frequency all throughout the day.”
So, what do I find with those who are “spiritual”?
At least they are open to the idea that RES isn’t a placebo affect (I know this sounds harsh, but I’ve had family and friends intimate this idea multiple times — it’s not an uncommon belief in our society in regards to non-psychologically based approaches).
The New Agers are also those who are, in my experience, extremely likely to subscribe to misguided techniques and methods for seeking real spiritual progress, sometimes in systems taught by teachers who are, themselves, in extreme spiritual addictions. ?
On The Other Hand
What about other people who might be helped by RES? Many who are more balanced, and function well, often have little interest in “opening themselves up to the universe” nor indulging in any type of seemingly “out there” practices like reading auras.
Yet they are the clients I’d most like to work with. Their insistence on focusing on objective reality is actually what protects them.
I may just be venting, but it’s a strange catch 22 I’ve found myself in lately.
I suspect I need to home my “elevator pitch” and gain more confidence owning my work as an RES practicioner. These skills are so useful to humanity right now.
Tangentially, it’s horrifying to see certain “leaders” in an entrepreneurial community I’m involved with.
These leaders are popular and thought of highly, but are living in extreme spiritual addiction.
“Oh, yeah, I’m consulting with Mr. X on this project. Isn’t he great??”
What don’t I say? “Yeah, he’d be great if his whole aura and integrity weren’t corrupted!”
