Deeper Perception Made Practical

Steady as You Go… Adjustment Years in The Age of Awakening

Steady as you go, steering past storms in this new Age of Awakening

Steady as you go, steering past storms in this new Age of Awakening

“I keep beating myself up over whatever I say and do.”

When Joe told me that in a session, it helped me to understand what I had noticed in his aura.

Joe’s intention for our session had been “To like myself more.” During the Skilled Empath Merge that followed, I discovered that Joe was quite spaced out. As I put it, “You’re flirting with spiritual addiction.” Which was so uncharacteristic for this long-term client. Joe hadn ‘t suffered that problem for years.

By the end of our time together that day, Joe’s aura was beautifully back to normal… and then some. His soul was being expressed more clearly. And what happened wasn’t just due to his Healing Centerpiece for that session of aura healing (a skill set for removal of many hundreds of frozen blocks that had been energetically triggering his distress).

Was there learning too? Definitely. A lot of our success together was related to my realizing what I’m going to share with you today. Today I’m giving you a longish post; if you persevere, I think you’ll find it to be time well spent.

First, let me ask you this question.

Have You Been Worrying Lately about an Old Insecurity?

Everybody has at least one. Could be, for instance:

  • I’m too fat.
  • Nobody likes me, really likes me.
  • People take advantage of me.
  • I’m a failure.
  • My money is going to disappear. Then what will I do?
  • I can’t keep up.
  • My health is bad and getting worse.

Adjusting to The Age of Awakening Stirs up Old Insecurities

Granted, most of this adjustment process is subconscious — related to the new vibrational flexibility in the Age of Awakening. Still, how are we to handle that?

Aha! The very problem that “THE NEW STRONG” aims to solve, with its Program for Easy Vibrational Balance.

However well people learn to adjust, there will growing pains. For instance, earlier this year, I’ve written about how often people are, rightly or wrongly, describing themselves as “anxious.”

Adjustment Involves Not Just Moods But “Consciousness Lifestyle”

Even more than troubling moods, what are the bigger adjustment problems in The Age of Awakening? Patterns with how consciousness is routinely positioned. Sounds abstract, maybe, but know that this kind of problem is very real. Altogether central to what happened with The Shift into The Age of Awakening.

Also it might be comforting to know that Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) offers real help with that, help that is especially easy to receive by reading “THE NEW STRONG.” (To give you an idea, here’s a link to the Annotated Table of Contents.)

What kinds of adjustment problems with consciousness are especially tied to The Age of Awakening? Ever since The Shift, I have seen certain problems regularly in my work in RES. Problems with “consciousness lifestyle.”

My analysis is based on extensive research into people’s auras (Stage Three Energetic Literacy)… going all the way back to 1986, which is… gulp!.. 30 years. So that’s many thousands of human energy fields and…

Yes, I find that certain common problems are about adjusting to this Age of Awakening:

  • These days I think of spiritual addiction as an adjustment problem related to The Age of Awakening. In spiritual addiction, a person’s awareness keeps moving into the astral vibrational frequencies, rather than dealing with human reality. Only this shift comes so easily now, people don’t know they’re doing it.
  • Spiritual shutdown is also an adjustment problem related to The Age of Awakening. A person hunkers down, resisting any energy sensitivity. This form of denial results in having a particular form of STUFF, gray slime, deposited into the person’s aura. Resistance begets resistance, causing a vicious cycle characterized by a survivalist emphasis on security.

Confused Adjustment to The Age of Awakening — The Political Fallout

Do facts matter any more, human reality-type facts?

Only if you’re making good contact with human vibrational frequencies.

  • Folks in spiritual addiction barely make contact with human-style objective reality.
  • Those in spiritual shutdown DO believe they are making contact with objective reality. Yet, as Blog-Buddy IRENE pointed out recently, people in spiritual shutdown may consciously be in denial about all those energies they suppress. Meanwhile, the process of denial causes those energies to run the person’s behavior, unbeknownst to that individual’s conscious awareness. As for behavior? Folks keep repeating a small selection of “facts” as though they were gospel.

Both spiritual addiction and spiritual shutdown are so common now. Even if you didn’t know about these adaptation problems from aura reading, you’d see signs of it by observing some of the bizarre, extreme behavior in current events.

Today Britain votes on Brexit, where this American has formed a picture of what’s happening by American newspapers of record. Please forgive my ignorance, compared to what you Blog-Buddies from the U.K. know. Far as I have read, much of the national debate is characterized by distrust of experts, anger, and a desire to keep “others” out of the way.

As Anne Applebaum wrote yesterday for “The Washington Post” (my italics):

“The real surprise is not that the Leave activists dispute predictions of slower growth or financial chaos. It’s that they don’t care about them. As Financial Times columnist Janan Ganesh wrote recently, “They can live with a recession if they must.”

How do I interpret this? Ooh, you guessed it. IMO, Disdain for facts today relates directly to adjustment problems in The Age of Awakening. Spiritual shutdown causes stuck anger to run people, even while they’re utterly blind to it. Or to inconvenient facts.

Many observers of the political scene in America now find that Trump’s popularity also depends on distrust of experts, anger, a desire to keep “others” out by “building a wall.” As for his stunning disregard for the truth? His lying is extraordinary, although Trump’s supporters don’t care.

When people have patterns of consciousness lifestyles where they don’t make contact with reality, why would mere facts care?

Energetic Literacy Research Links Spiritual Shutdown and Spiritual Addiction to Off-Kilter Actions

If you have Stage Three Energetic Literacy, use it to read photos of folks with strong security-based worldviews. Often you’ll find spiritual shutdown.

For instance, you can use this photo link to check out the aura of the notorious Thomas Mair, being held for the murder of MP Jo Cox.

Or you can skip that depressing kind of aura reading research and let me summarize my findings. Folks who commit hate crimes, join neo-Nazi groups, speak stridenly as “patriots,” etc. — they’re usually in spiritual shutdown; their auras rife with extreme patterns of anger and hatred.

Evidence to this aura reader of… poor adaptation to vibrational changes that have occurred in The Age of Awakening!

By contrast, you can use energetic literacy to savor a more normal consciousness lifestyle, what I call human-based spirituality, in the chakra databanks of this Brexit protester, dressed in red. Fittingly, her sign at the demonstration reads, “Your hatred isn’t welcome HERE.”

On my side of the pond, some populist voices combine beautiful ideals with scoffing at reality (specifically, what really works in American politics, paying attention to what has been happening in government, who has caused our gridlock). Senator Bernie Sanders has appealed to many idealists who are down to earth and aim to move the nation forward in directions he has proposed. Fair enough.

But have you been perplexed by other fans of Bernie Sanders who can’t accept his defeat in Democratic primaries and are even vowing to vote for Trump instead? I haven’t read all their auras, of course. But I think this one is fairly typical: Click on the link just provided; you can easily find the woman with a raised fist, a red vest, and gorgeous long hair.

What does her aura proclaim, loud and clear: Spiritual addiction. Hello, there’s that second, so common, adaptation problem in The Age of Awakening!

The Global Refugee Crisis Can Also Be Seen in Relationship to Poor Adaptation to the Age of Awakening

Not to blame the poor refugees! But it is certainly strange that the largest population displacements are occurring since World War II. Bad though things have been, we haven’t been having a world war, right?

Well, if you start reading auras of people in countries where unrest has reached crazy proportions, you’ll find so many people in either spiritual shutdown or spiritual addiction. They’re struggling to deal with reality, and their adaptation problems have led to what kinds of behavior?

Behavior driven by fanaticism. Awareness at human vibrational frequencies can protect us from irrational acts, cruelty, and such.

Seems to me, religious ideals don’t necessarily bring truth, fairness, justice, consideration, or other traditional human virtues into life on earth.

When awareness is distant from our humanity, it becomes all too easy today to treat people like theories, trivial details.

It seems noble to pursue “righteousness,” regardless of the human consequences. Isn’t that how some of the greatest cruelty is perpetrated?

Displaced persons are the casualties.

  • Seems to me, in this Age of Awakening, many otherwise puzzling political actions can be explained by fanatical, security-based, behavior being driven by denied energies (spiritual shutdown).
  • Equally troubling behavior has been driven by extreme idealism that has lost contact with reality (spiritual addiction). Although that doesn’t generally lead to such vigorous action, more to dropping out, spacing out, living “holier than others.”

In the resulting chaos, millions are running for their lives. Over 65 million displaced persons in the world right now! Struggling for physical survival, each of these persons is getting a crash course in “Pay attention to human vibrational frequencies.”

Beyond compassion and simple human decency, here’s another reason to do all you can to support them: Refugees are helping to steady collective consciousness, adding to the numbers of people who position awareness primarily at human vibrational frequencies.

Indirectly they counter-balance some of the people who or behave with irrational cruelty, while dominated by denied astral energies.

Meanwhile help is withheld from millions who feel too busy to act, consoling themselves with the dreamworlds of their ideals, feeling superior.

Psychological seekers and meditators, not just New Agers, are often bemused with The Romance of the Astral. Lacking energetic literacy, they don’t know they can also be in the mess of either psychological overwork or spiritual addiction.

Yet there’s still plenty of good news available. For instance, Blog-Buddies…

YOUR Consciousness Lifestyle Can Be Well Adapted to the Age of Awakening

You don’t have to be a refugee to take a healthy interest in your humanity.

Stay in touch with reality, weird though it sometimes is, Blog-Buddies. At this blog you’ll find many articles about living in a way that’s vibrationally balanced, a.k.a. human-based spirituality.

What more can you do to improve your adjustment to life after The Shift? Use the pioneering knowledge and skills in “THE NEW STRONG,” those “Rules & Tools for Living in the ‘Age of Awakening.” This consciousness resource can help you to achieve an even better adaptation to living in the Age of Awakening.

Besides That, What’s a Human-Type Thing You Can Do Starting NOW?

Like my smart client Joe, don’t take it seriously when anger and criticism are so strongly expressed in collective consciousness.

Do what you can. Donate and vote and volunteer.

Otherwise steer steady as you go.

Worries Can Be Catching. So What? Don’t Believe in Them.

When subconsciously dealing with the sort of mess in the world today, with such angst in collective consciousness, guess what?

Like Joe, you’re dealing with powerful energies of strife and confusion. Distress is in the auric modeling of so many people you meet — at work, on the street, on TV.

That impacts you to some extent, giving rise to feelings of worry that you will label with your oldest, nastiest fears. Your worst insecurities. Hello!

So see these as waves on the sea of life.  Steer steady.

The practical way of doing this does not involve a ship’s steering wheel: Keep reinserting yourself into reality.  Do the best you can, under the circumstances. Let that be enough.

Incidentally, after his session with me, Joe’s aura was back to normal; doing better than ever, actually. And he told me, to paraphrase:

Spiritual and energetic truth have resonated for me.

I feel better aligned now. More hopeful. More safe. More like myself.

    Thanks for that. I often stop myself from commenting on how the new energies are reflected in current events.

    Lilian says:

    It s interesting to think that refugees are being of service to the collective consciousness.

    Political issues do need to be addressed. Immigration levels to the UK are very high.

    No party suggests that this isn t a challenging situation. Especially with budget cuts to public services. There are incredibly poor areas in the UK that need investment.

    And traditionally the far right is most active in these areas. But it’s really a question of how challenges are tackled and which leaders do we trust.

  3. 3
    Lilian says:

    The Brexit issue really isn’t black and white. The EU could certainly do with reforms.

    It’s well accepted that the Euro (the currency itself) and the flat rate interest rate it imposes causes problems with slower growing economies like Italy, Spain etc. etc.

  4. 4
    Lilian says:

    To me it feels like these imbalances in the collective consciousness are there, and that they will find things to align to. And that just stops anything being resolved.

    Like I care about environmental issues, but that camp can be dominated by space cadets.

  5. 5
    Lilian says:

    At least by deciding to hold a referendum, a focus has been given to the issues and shown the public what the leaders are made of.

    That’s valuable in itself. What’s important is that things are being addressed proactively. Once the rest of the EU’s economy starts growing more, the UK will be less of a pull for job seekers and we can all take a breath.

    Fascinating, Rose, thank you. I have always been very interested in how deeper perception can help us to better understand geopolitics and world events.

    Anyone bringing any amount of stability to the world is making a big difference.

    Sarah says:

    Thank you, Rose!!

    Very helpful for me right now.

    Lots of old insecurities have been popping up lately and some days the best I’ve been able to do is just get through the basic human requirements of the day, trusting that I’m moving toward greater stability soon.

  9. 9
    Sarah says:

    Reading this reminded me that it really is OKAY to do just keep doing one’s best!

    And that trusting oneself to do one’s best (which is healthy and important) is not the same thing as trusting “the universe” to “all work out” (which might be related to spiritual addiction).

  10. 10
    Sarah says:

    Also: For the first time, after reading this post, I’m starting to understand the dangers of spiritual *shutdown* in the Age of Awakening.

    Not danger like “be very very scared!”, just danger like…

    There is greater risk involved than simply slowing down one’s own evolution.

  11. 11
    Sarah says:

    I have been feeling unsettled by some of the behavior (and stated justification of behavior) of, for example, Trump and his supporters.

    When I first began to learn about “Brexit” and some of the justification used by its supporters, I had that same gawking-gaping kind of reaction.

  12. 12
    Sarah says:

    That being said–I don’t claim to fully understand the issue nor do I live in the UK.

    I know it is far, far more complicated than the extreme xenophobic-types make it seem.

    It was the presence of this Trump-esque rhetoric at all that shocked and alarmed me.

  13. 13
    Sarah says:

    Rose, your post really helped me to calm down and understand that the world really isn’t going to hell in a hand basket, and that this phenomenon is an intensified version of the same spiritual shutdown I’ve already witnessed.

  14. 14
    Sarah says:

    At the same time, it was a sobering reminder that neither spiritual shutdown nor spiritual addiction is an even remotely viable long-term consciousness strategy.

    There really is no “pause” button on life!!

  15. 15
    Sarah says:

    I also can’t help thinking about the factions in your novel, The Roar of the Huntids, which I recently finished reading.

    SUCH a pertinent and timely tale!!

  16. 16

    LILIAN, ISABELLA CATES, and SARAH — thanks for your insights.

    And what a pleasant surprise, SARAH, to have anyone read my novel for empaths and mention it at the blog!

    Yes, “The Roar of the Huntids” is a spiritual thriller with quite some spiritual satire. You can preview it at the link just supplied.

  17. 17
    Kira says:

    I have been thinking all along that all this upheaval is related to the Shift, but it’s been only a hunch, not something I am able to research (yet).

    So I’m really glad to see this post, Rose!

    Lilian, glad to read your take on Brexit.

    Sarah, yes—The Roar of the Huntids is so very relevant!

    Amanda says:

    Lilian, an excellent and sensible summary.

    Brexit is not black and white. There are a number of real and oh yes, human, issues involved that need to be tackled with common sense and compromise.

  21. 21
    Amanda says:

    For me the sad thing has been people’s willingness to create enemies of the ‘other’ – and this also goes for the Remain and Leave camps.

    It’s been easy to make all ‘Leave’ voters into bigoted monsters, rather than recognising the issues that have led to their viewpoint.

  22. 22
    Amanda says:

    Luckily there are people who can take a more balanced perspective.

    I was very confused by the degree of partisanship I have been seeing, so your explanation makes sense, Rose.

  23. 23
    Amanda says:

    Once again Lilian, I couldn’t agree more.

    However, if the vote is as close as polls suggest then there will be no firm mandate given, whatever the result.

  24. 24
    Amanda says:

    I am hoping that this will initiate a more balanced and coherent discussion.

    Meanwhile, head down and at the very least, I am grateful to live in a democracy.

    Amanda

  25. 25
    Lilian says:

    Oh, such excellent comments. 🙂
    Sarah : comment 9: yes!

    Amanda: Yes. You know, I’m not entirely sure that the EU is good for us long term. We’re a sovereign country, we don’t have to commit to what doesn’t serve us in terms of democracy, border control, taxation, etc etc. But it’s not the right political climate or leadership to make that change…

  26. 26
    Lilian says:

    Whatever your opinion, I do hope there will be more focus on the issues raised. But that didn’t happen for the scottish referendum, so who knows.

    Jane says:

    — “Refugees are helping to steady collective consciousness, ….” —

    Wow. I don’t know why, but this struck me as an immensely powerful statement. And full of respect, as well.

    Can’t quite articulate a proper response. But thanks for that insight Rose.

  28. 28
    Irene says:

    To me, this post points out why it’s so important to develop energetic literacy skills.

    It’s easy to be overwhelmed by what’s happening in the world right now and wonder how to do anything that could possibly make a difference.

  29. 29
    Irene says:

    Being able to see the deeper perception perspective gives a framework to see the big picture and keep on keeping on without getting scared by the weirdnesses.

    Isabella, I loved this way of putting it in #7: “Anyone bringing any amount of stability to the world is making a big difference.”

  30. 30
    Irene says:

    Sarah, what a beautifully inspiring sequence of comments #8-15 (especially #9!)

    I’ve spent a lot of time where all I could manage was the barest of basics, yet continuing to pick myself up and continue as best I could was the greatest triumph possible and all that was required for that day.

  31. 31

    JANE, thank you for appreciating that weird-sounding statement about refugees.

    Of course, the anguish and terror and all the other emotions seem like the opposite of steadiness.

    It’s just that those feelings are so very human.

    Rachel says:

    My favourite quote about Brexit came today – from the New York Times!

    “That Britain is even contemplating an exit speaks to the ferment shaping politics in much of the world, as people grapple with the effects of globalization, automation and immigration — forces that present opportunities and pressures alike, changing the look and feel of communities. ”

    So true. I wish the politicians had dared to raise the issues of globalisation and automation. Issues that aren’t seen very clearly at street level, but give so much context to the fear and need for adjustment that people are experiencing.

  33. 33
    Rachel says:

    The huge political and social changes that societies everywhere are experiencing seem to be another symptom of the spiritual confusion that Rose has described so well here.

    The sailing comparison is one that’s come to mind a few times to describe the past few years and the constant need to adjust.

    And, dearest JULIE, there will always be room in my boat for you.

  37. 37

    Wow, if I start thinking that way, I will need an extremely large boat (though not fancy, not my style) for room for all you Blog-Buddies.

    On a more mundane note, I’ll bet the pub owners all over England are doing a brisk business tonight. Look at the graph on this “Live Coverage” report on the voting today.

    About making a difference-

    More than ever it is clear to me how malleable the world is right now.

    It doesn’t take massive effort, necessarily.

    One small person can tip the balance!

  40. 40
    Julie says:

    Even on a local front, there was a victory this week. It was something I put support behind – and it didn’t take much – resulted in a win for the community.

    Some of the old power structures, old ways of doing business are having to adjust as well. To change their ways to keep up with the times.

    There is perhaps more power than ever to having a voice, taking a stand for what’s important. What’s right.

    Amanda says:

    Hello Lilian :). Well, I just woke up and we’ve made that change.

    Rachel, a great quote. The campaigns being run didn’t necessarily pick up on that point.

    Many people I spoke to (I live in an area that voted Remain) see the EU as representing exactly that – globalisation.

    Rather like an out of town chain supermarket setting up, it represented a threat to diversity and individual character.

    To me this is a valid point of view.

  43. 43
    Amanda says:

    I am sure there will be a lot of emotion over the next few days. There were valid points on all sides of the debate.

    I’ve been very undecided, which cushions the blow – I could feel quite comfortable with any result because to me each had very strong points.

    My main concern was and is that both sides are listened to.

    I hope we leave in a way that includes the whole of the UK – that is, still outward facing and connected, while also able to decide our strategy for ourselves.

    Amanda

  44. 44
    Amanda says:

    If we can do that, to me that would be a great result.

    Wonderful way of looking at world events, Rose. While I look at different markers, I see the same trend of global awakening bringing things to the surface to be seen and cleared. Because many don’t recognize the process underway, they balk and create problems for themselves and others.

    The key in the current time is to try and make the transition as smooth as possible. Key there is education and clarity.

    True, so well put.

    Thanks blog buddies (and Rose) for all the leadership and support you’re providing with the blog. I really don’t post to hear the sound of my own typing. 🙂

    Hearing about other people’s struggle and confusion and realisations helps put it all in context. The discussion we have here is so valuable and appreciated.

  50. 50

    So, Blog-Buddies, with results in (although not yet official), we’ve just lived through a bit of history.

    Okay, a new bit of history is just getting started.

    May Brexit bring blessings to England and also to the rest of the world, a quiet revolution that has not demanded war and bloodshed.

  51. 51

    For sure, we can live in the present with the consciousness lifestyle of THE NEW STRONG.

    Beautifully adapted ways of using awareness, supplemented by understanding The New Rules for the Age of Awakening, plus a small number of new skills for energy healing… that adds up to a better life, regardless of political and economic turmoil.

  52. 52

    Re grey slime. I suspect that UKIP leader Nigel Farage does not have this in his aura as many of his supporters do. I do not detect grey slime there (that said, as far as aura reading goes I am a beginner, certainly I could be wrong). If it would ever be of interest to you for this blog, and the topic at hand, perhaps Farage’s aura might be one to read. Here is a picture of Farage from just after the Brexit referendum got a yea.

    Hmm… I know the USA doesn’t understand a huge amount about Brexit. I ask blog buddies to see it as more than spiritual shutdown vs spiritual stagnation.

  55. 55
    Lilian says:

    For me, it wasn’t much of a surprise. The UK is a two tier economy.

    When I was a student in the NE of England, being the proactive person I am, I got involved in all kinds of community whatsits.

    I started the understand the decades long economic stagnation of the area and put my preachy middle class perspective to one side.

    It was actually the disenfranchised Labour vote that brought on Brexit. At some point, the price of not listening to a large chunk of the UK’s population has to be paid.

  56. 56
    Lilian says:

    The EU is really not as democratic and transparent as it needs to be to really cope with the economic imbalance in the EU and the fallout of the growing instability in the Middle East, our direct neighbours.

    If people don’t have faith in the EU, why force the issue? There are other ways to cooperate.

  57. 57
    Lilian says:

    Anyways, I’m supportive of Brexit and think it can have many positive outcomes.

    The pound’s fallen because the markets bet on a Remain vote, but we’ll see what actually happens long term.

    Donald Trump isn’t the poster child of Brexit. He’s not exactly popular in the UK… we don’t have the same politics.

    But we’ll see how popular he is when he visits.

  58. 58
    Lilian says:

    I’ll not read these comments here. It always annoys me how little the good folk of the US seem to know about the world at large… You guys are lovely, but the amount of times I had to explain where Scotland was to people when I was last over there was a bit demoralising.

  59. 59

    LILIAN, of course you’re right about this. And so were AMANDA and ANONYMOUSLY ANONYMOUS.

    If the Brexit vote hadn’t been a complex decision, would it have been so close?

    In the main post, I was commenting on people whose approach to political choices is to scorn facts, knowledge, expertise.

    These tend to be about reality. Human-type reality.

  60. 60

    Human reality isn’t usually just black and white. Arguing complexities and tradeoffs? That’s different from not paying attention at all (as was reported by the journalist I quoted who was covering the U.K.).

    Likewise it’s indicative of scorning reality when a voter doesn’t care if falsehoods are spoken repeatedly (reported all too often from American newspapers, including those media now officially banned by likely presidential candidate Trump).

  61. 61
    Lilian says:

    Sure. Yeah, I’m just saying that it’s also fact that you can’t just under invest in large chunks of a country without there being consequences…

    Places in County Durham have been struggling since the 80s… This is part of objective human reality that has been ignored also.

  62. 62
    Lilian says:

    It’s a bit like: I won’t acknowledge your reality if you don’t acknowledge mine…

    The economist has an article about in-work poverty in the UK just the other week. This has been brewing for decades. Anyway, over and out.

    Truly we are all helping each other during this time of..much change.

    Yes the near constant need to adjust. Yes the ‘flare up’ of issues.

    And yes I agree the sailing metaphor is most apt.

    Seas are so frequently roiled one is on the hop much of the time attempting to maintain some semblance of a relatively even keel.

    In Canada, there are TV shows that make sport of Americans ignorance of other countries, like doing street interviews asking people questions about Canada. Like their opinion of the national igloo. Or with a world map with the country names quite rearranged.

    Along with apology, self-satire is big. 🙂

    David B says:

    To be clear, I didn’t mean that Brexit voters where the same as Trump supporters. I was referring to the disaffected creating unexpected movements.

    And I’m not American. 🙂

    David B says:

    The comment I mentioned was on the BBC web site.

  70. 70

    Oh, DAVID B. and LILIAN and other Blog-Buddies who could fill this blog with stories of really awful American ignorance, etc.

    Don’t I know! Don’t many of us Americans know. And yet we love our country, just as one might love family members who sometimes make us proud and other times make us feel ashamed.

  71. 71

    Are there plenty of reasons for not being thrilled with my country and its representatives (political and otherwise)?

    Oh yes.

    But I incarnated here. I am committed to living here, helping here, in good times or bad times, shining as much light as I’m given.

    Sarah says:

    Rose, thank you for your comment #50 very much!

    A number of my close friends and colleagues are reeling from this result, either directly (by residence or citizenship) or indirectly (by its impact on the markets–and thus their livelihood, as financial markets professionals).

  73. 73
    Sarah says:

    Your wise perspective that this was “a quiet revolution” lacking war and bloodshed is a fact I had been overlooking.

    Contrast this to revolutions past, complete with guillotines and/or muskets.

    However the consequences shake out, there’s something to be admired about the process.

    Lilian says:

    Rose, there’s plenty of ignorance as things are so dem complicated! It seems that things need to be simpler for more people to feel engaged. 🙂

    Lilian says:

    Things might have to slow down, get simpler to give people some time to catch up…

    Amanda says:

    Once again, Lilian, great points.

    Almost everyone I know voted Remain, but they could afford to. Their response to the Leave vote is disgust and excoriation of ‘little Englanders’.

    To me this is a gross ovwrsimplification. I may belong with the Remain elite, but my family was from County Durham.

  77. 77
    Amanda says:

    They are sensible, alive and intelligent and from the experience they have of the poverty and stuckness outside London, I would expect they voted to Leave.

    Not Little Englanders at all.

    I am frustrated that people are too busy listening to their own opinions to make an effort at understanding why this could have happened.

    The New York Times has the best summary today.

    Emily T says:

    When I was up yesterday I cried for 40 minutes. Thank God and Rose for the coming home technique or else I would have been late for work!

    Emily T says:

    As an EU immigrant myself I never expected a vote to leave.

    Although as my taxi driver to the polling station told me “you’re not an immigrant” I most certainly am!

    But because I’m Irish rather than Polish I have a certain privilege. It still feels like a massive step back.

  80. 80
    Emily T says:

    I feel like social media has been a massive hindrance.

    I went to dinner with a friend last night who made several comments about “oh they say a chocolate Fredo bar is going to cost £80!! (LOL) they must think we’re stupid”

  81. 81
    Emily T says:

    This same friend was shocked later on to realise that Ibiza is in the EU and to find out what the possible ramifications were if she were to go on holiday after we’ve left the EU…

    I.e. Currency exchange, more expensive flights, having to get health insurance rather than just taking their health card.

  82. 82
    Emily T says:

    I think this lack of knowledge around economics is partly to blame. Another aspect is the austerity policies of the conservatives.

  83. 83
    Emily T says:

    Sorry Rose
    I know this isn’t a blog about Brexit!

    Emily T says:

    I think the impact of the Age of Awakening (and automation and globalisation) has made life feel scary and different for a lot of people.

  85. 85
    Emily T says:

    The older generation seem to remember a different time (that will never come back).

    While the younger ones have been somewhat quicker to acclimatise to this different way of life and haven’t known much different so aren’t harkening back.

  86. 86
    Emily T says:

    I agree with Amanda,

    If people hadn’t treated the so called little englanders as if they were Trump supporters and actually addressed their concerns about jobs, immigrants, depressed wages etc. I think the vote would have been quite different.

  87. 87
    Emily T says:

    And I still have an EU passport so I’m less impacted than others but still I feel it’s such a blow.

    I feel like I need to remind myself, sure the USA voted in George Bush but then got Barack Obama a short while later… Swings and roundabouts!

    EMILY T, thanks for all your comments. About that #83, what kind of blog is this?

    It is an educational blog, with leading-edge discoveries about Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES).

    This blog is also a historical record of growth of consciousness, spiritual empowerment, what it has been like for the first pioneers in the various skill sets of RES.

    Historically, we’re living in early days of The Age of Awakening. “Deeper Perception Made Practical” began before The Shift. Now we’re here, and adjusting in our very human ways.

    Bring on comments about that, too, too!

    David B says:

    Also notable with the Brexit vote was the age divide. The youngers mostly wanted to stay, the boomers leave.

    Different generations are responding differently to the changing times.

    Lilian says:

    Amanda: 77: So your family is from county Durham? Very true. The news channels aren’t helping matters by not giving leave voters a real voice.

    Emily T: comment 86 exactly.

    Lilian says:

    The UK will have to learn to be more united. But this is a steep price to pay… To get a free trade agreement, we’ll have to accept free movement of people (like Norway Switzerland etc do). But then we’ve lost any voice in the actual EU.

    Lilian says:

    Rose, I think it’s a mistake to think that any particular side in any debate is either dominated by spiritual addiction or spiritual shutdown. Figureheads might be, but it’ll be more complex than that. Republicans in your own country have a valid political tradition that expresses something that Democrats don’t, for example.

  93. 93
    Lilian says:

    Or that because someone is in spiritual addiction or shutdown that their choices are invalid… I can recall my own time with spiritual addiction. There’s still a soul there trying to express themselves. It’s more that people won’t do things in the best possible, most harmonious, graceful and resourceful way. So there’s no point feeling like we’ve ever reached a point of no return on anything.

  94. 94
    Lilian says:

    Maybe our feet maybe only fit the ground 50% of the time, while the other 50% we’re either stuck or astral. However, the general direction may not be completely off course. Anyway, that’s how I experienced things.

  95. 95
    Lilian says:

    If that makes any kind of sense.

    Amanda: Thanks for tip about NYT.

  96. 96

    LILIAN, you’ve added some thought-provoking comments here in the series from #92-#94.

    Here’s my perspective on some of this.

    Regarding your Comment #92, I am totally prepared to disclose that I did NOT thoroughly research the Brexit vote, and did only a smattering of research into auras involved.

  97. 97

    However, regarding the presidential primary results in America, I assure you that I researched auras of hundreds of people at rallies, as well as candidates themselves.

    Only then did I generalize here in this blog post.

    You still may disagree with me, of course — and you can still benefit from other things at this blog that you do agree with. Take from this blog what helps you!

  98. 98

    Regarding your Comment #93, this topic is something I have researched really, really extensively.

    (Definitively? Of course, I can’t claim that.)

    For years I have researched clients, their significant others, their energetic holograms, as well as public figures.

    From a real-life standpoint, people do perform well in some ways and not well in others as a result of either spiritual addiction or spiritual shutdown.

  99. 99

    Are a human being’s life and choices “valid” while that person is living in spiritual addiction?

    Sure, in the sense that every precious lifetime at Earth School is valid. Educational, too! 🙂

  100. 100

    Otherwise? It can be very, very useful to research groups of people who do certain things and find a common denominator.

    One example is the extensively researched how-to on real-life success and prosperity: “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy.”
