Some of you Blog-Buddies have read my estimate of consciousness lifestyle-type adjustment problems in The Age of Awakening.
For instance, when I went to Canada to receive training as a Certified Instructor with the National Guild of Hypnotists, researching away in the streets of Toronto, it seemed to me then (years ago) that many, many people were in spiritual shutdown. While not so many were in spiritual addiction.
The sample of the population I researched was nothing like how many Japanese auras I read, during my 13 tour-style trips to Japan. (Which was the basis for my estimate that, unlike elsewhere on earth, if you’re born and raised inJapanese, your likelihood of being an empath is 1 in 5. In contrast to elsewhere on earth, with just 1 in 20 people usually born as empaths.
One of the reasons why this guest post by IRENE fascinates me so is that she has had far more experience with reading auras of Canadians. And that’s just when the perceptiveness gets started. Thank you so much for what follows, IRENE.
Since The Age of Awakening, Lots of Spiritual Shutdown in Canada
I’m Canadian and my understanding is the ratio tips to the spiritual shutdown side here more than the equal 45% in spiritual shutdown/45% in spiritual addiction in the U.S.
At least, most people I know tend more to toward spiritual shutdown. I have not done aura reading to confirm that they are in spiritual shutdown, but what I observe is this:
- They accept only human-level answers,
- They don’t accept anything that is unseen or “out there”
- They don’t accept anything that doesn’t make logical sense intellectually, fitting neatly into the person’s (current conceptual) understanding of the world.
- They seem to make decisions based on fear, trying to avoid unpleasant things by controlling their environment and allowing no change.
- Although some will blindly accept directives based on their particular religious interpretation, but in every other area of their life, things must be seen first in order to exist.
What’s Really Fascinating about Canadian-Style Spiritual Shutdown?
Far as I can tell, the people I’ve met in spiritual shutdown consider energy awareness to be a part of their experience now.
(Disclaimer: I am reporting my observations only. I have spoken about this directly with very few of these individuals.)
So They Don’t Believe in Energy Anything. Yet…
They’ll say (and take action based on) things like these:
- “I just had a feeling that would happen (or was needed).”
- “I get really good vibes from her; I think our relationship will really work out.”
- “Did you notice when she walked into the room, how the energy in the air just changed?
- “There’s an energy dynamic in this team that is bringing us down. Let’s do better.”
- “That house was feeling sad to them (or making them feel sad). So they moved.”
- “The energy in the house is different when you’re away.”
- “That person is so draining to be around that I just avoid him now.”
Hey, It Gets Stranger
To me, spiritual shutdown helps to explain odd behavior from people who claim not to believe in anything energetic but then speak or act in a way that can only be explained by being energy sensitive.
Some will justify manipulative or coercive behavior with the reasoning, “I feel Jesus wants me to do this.” Or “I feel Jesus wants me to say this.”
Or how about this? The other day, I met a truck driver who seemed very down to earth. He took one look at me and said, “You’re looking very zen today.” (Know what? That day I was very much positioned at human vibrational frequencies.)
It’s Only Acceptable to Use Energy for PHYSICAL Healing
That seems more widely accepted than even thinking about other energy modalities… like energy spirituality.
People I’ve met generally seem to accept the idea of energy moving in the body. So it’s okay with them to believe that energy can cause physical healing.
This helps me to understand why these energy-based healing modalities have gone mainstream in Canada, like acupuncture and Reiki and EFT (tapping).
Plus Many Canadians Forget They Don’t Trust Life Beneath the Surface When…
They’ll describe their feelings in great detail. Overheard often are conversations about “Working on myself” to look for “What’s really going on.”
Very popular are self-analysis techniques. (My fellow Canadians often beat themselves up for not doing better).
I’ll hear questions like:
- “Why is this happening to me?”
- “How does my childhood or past history impact (or prevent me from coping with) this situation now?”
- “Why can’t I make this work?”
- “How can I make my life feel meaningful?”
- “Why can’t this be easier?”
By contrast, far fewer questions address the what, where, when and who. Those practical questions that people ask when they are paying attention to surface, everyday human life.
Doesn’t that Seem Like Energy Awareness to You?
It sure seems like energy awareness/energy sensitivity to me.
However, this does not mean these individuals are willing to talk about energy as such or spiritual growth or anything spiritual or “woo-woo.”
Although so many people I meet would not admit out loud that they are energy sensitive, actions speak louder than words.
Many of their real-life, human decisions seem made (at least in part) based on the vibes they get from someone. They may even actively fear and avoid so-called “toxic” people.
What about Removing Emotional and Spiritual Problems?
Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) specializes in removal of STUFF: Stuck energies within a person’s energy field that blocks emotional and spiritual growth.
RES includes specific names and techniques for removal of 15 different forms of STUFF.
Seems to me, people with greater energy sensitivity are noticing the impact of what we call STUFF. Which is different from noticing energetic imbalances that are changed by energy medicine modalities or techniques of energy psychology.
Some people around me try to fix what we call STUFF (emotional and spiritual blockage) with energy medicine-type solutions.
Others slogging through psychological work, feeling like they’re making progress and a breakthrough is just around the corner. (While it seems to me that they’re just noticing energies – talking about their feelings more, analyzing their reactions, things like that.)
Energetic? Yes or No?
None of those subjective, workaround techniques is seen as being “energetic.” Sometimes it drives me wild how closed people seem to energetic literacy-type describing energy in ways that address human problems, personal growth, spiritual evolution.
Because I’ve developed Stage Three Energetic Literacy, I know that skill can be gained and then a person can read auras in detail.
But what happens when I suggest the idea of an energetic reality which anyone can read with appropriate skill?
Supposedly, “That’s just New Age mumbo-jumbo.” Or “A big fraud.” Or “All the same thing.”
I Wish These Energy-Feelers Who Remain Staunch Energy-Skeptics Would Read “THE NEW STRONG”
I’m hopeful that the clear logic and observable reality as described in “THE NEW STRONG” will resonate.
These individuals are looking for happiness believing that safety has to be the top priority and that the human level is the only reality. Ironically, they’re blind to being, already, deeply, energy aware.
It’s negatively impacting their lives — until they find a way (like Rose’s program in that book for Easy Vibrational Balance) that helps them adjust better to the Age of Awakening.
“THE NEW STRONG” presents many skills and understandings: “Rules & Tools for Thriving in The Age of Awakening.”
I’m finding it so refreshing to understand the subtle alterations in the New Rules for The Age of Awakening, in contrast to The Old Rules.
Following today’s new rules makes human life work so much better.
Life doesn’t have to be a horrible, hopeless fight. Life can be a joy.
