Ascension Misunderstanding is a serious problem in New Age today.
Described here? Two of the biggest misunderstandings. Decide for yourself what makes better sense.
Ascension Misunderstanding flares up… in gatherings of New Age-style mind-body-spirit. Earlier, I started exploring seven biggies. Today’s Part Two article will cover two more Ascension Misunderstandings. Let’s gain more clarity.
A Controlled Experiment in Clarity
What inspired this series of posts? Hosting a booth at the recent Pathways Mind-Body-Spirit Expo in Maryland.
Consider it a kind of experiment. Every six months, gather together the region’s most dedicated New Agers.
Then notice patterns to how group members change over time. Because semi-annual visits can work like time-lapse photography. Or a controlled experiment.
Watch what’s unfolding. You’ll witness the consequences of New Age on the sweet people who preach it, practice it.
Mever before had I thought of Pathways Expos in that way. But what I saw troubled me so much, I started thinking long and hard. Consequently, I wrote the last post. Basically, sharing results observed from this interesting experiment.
Which leads me to propose a kind of intervention for those in spiritual addiction. You could call it a “Spiritual Intervention.”
The Intent Behind This Spiritual Intervention
Please, continue reading only after reading this about my intent:
Unfortunately I can’t be “all positive, sweetness and light.” But it gives me no pleasure to point out these problems.
Where are I coming from? Doing a sort of spiritual intervention… to help people I care about. Perhaps, you’ll be interested in sharing this article with folks you’ve been concerned about, but you didn’t quite know where to point them for help.
However, these New Agers are smart, self-actualizing people. Will they like the resources of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES)? Or will they prefer other alternatives? All that matters is this.
- To find resources that support what remains good and true about New Age.
- Establishing what can work Post-New-Age.
- Also letting go of obsolete or confusing ideas. (Like ones highlighted in this little series of posts.)
Incidentally, what about the quotes supplied here? Expect what I did in Part One. I’ll supply only the gist. Exact words are just not available.
Ascension Misunderstanding #3. Help from Space Beings
Longing for ascension, many a New Ager awaits extra-terrestrial help. Therefore, channeling is popular. Alternatively a teacher may facilitate “attunements.”
Q. Hold on, whose energies? What, exactly, are you downloading directly into your aura?
A. Smile. “Something beautiful. Something from higher beings. Trust it.”
Unfortunately, explanation about sources may be vague or misleading. Maybe lacking entirely. Hence ideas like this popular sentiment about ascension, straight from the Expo:
“When will the Higher Beings truly be in charge? Isn’t that necessary for Earth to move into Ascension?”
Granted, spirits of any kind might be called “higher beings.” Contrasting with us “human beings.” Yet disembodied spirits, including E.T.s and spirit guides, are not necessarily more evolved than you or me. Certainly, they’re not human. So why seek their guidance for living your (human) life?
Spirits Already Influence Earth Plenty. Ascension Misunderstanding Alert!
Expect this to Worsen Until More People Adjust Well to the Age of Awakening.
Just three words sum up the worst case scenario: Extreme spiritual addiction. (And yes, I’d encourage you to read the article just linked to. This topic may seem distasteful. Sure does to me! Yet this info is too important to miss. For instance, note Blog-Buddy GILLIAN’s Comments 21-23 at Ascension Confusion. 7 New Age Misunderstandings.)
In short, extreme spiritual addiction means being run by a group of astral entities and ETs. As an expert at energetic literacy, I’ve found many examples of this pattern. Especially among famous and powerful people. Here are some sample YouTubes with aura readings of folks you may have heard of:
- President Donald Trump
- Vice-President Mike Pence
- Other important political leaders in extreme spiritual addiction? Paul Manafort, Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, Melania Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Paul Ryan.
- Media-related folks in extreme spiritual addiction include Steven Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Megyn Kelly.
- And, sigh, what have I found with just about every Hay House author whose aura I’ve read in the last couple of years? You guessed it. Extreme spiritual addiction in Louise Hay, Doreen Virtue, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Judith Orloff, Dr. Eric Pearl. Very distressing!
But Politicians Aren’t New Agers
Agreed. Clearly, they’re not New Agers.
Rather, they have surrendered in their own ways to “higher beings” who appealed to their need for fame or power. No matter what has been promised, it’s never wise to open up your head and let some other being pour in… whatever.
Regarding the aforementioned politicians and pundits, it’s very concerning. Have you been following the news, Blog-Buddies? How do you like what these shells of human beings are doing?
My Recommendation to Counter this Ascension Misunderstanding
Did You Know this Basic Fact of Vibrational Life?
Earth is our world. We humans have sovereignty over all life forms. Whether animals or spirits or ETs.
When we humans get it together, we can transform this world. But we won’t make our country stronger by checking out. Nor will we make any neighborhood safer by yearning for Ascension. (Or, for that matter, The Rapture.)
How about this? If you’re spiritual, demonstrate it by what you say and do. Step up through effective engagement. And please, please, don’t long for astral beings to make this a better world.
Especially don’t seek to be taken over by “angels” or “spirits” or “your guides” or “beings from more evolved worlds.”
Avoid initiations and attunements. Often mislabled, these can cause astral beings to influence your aura. You, the glorious creation designed as a HUMAN being.
Have You Seen References to Entities Taking Over Earth?
Of course, this doesn’t have to happen in reality.
Nonetheless, some creative artists may have noticed this emerging possibility. They’re plugged into collective consciousness, after all.
So maybe it’s no coincidence, what has been happening. In fiction and movies, there have been many story lines lately about space beings, etc., trying to take over earth.
One was a movie, “Tomorrowland.” (Actually I flagged that as Inspiration Source #4 in a previous blog post. Happily, in that movie the humans won.)
Please comment below with pop culture references you have seen, Blog-Buddies. Let’s make a list.
Ascension Misunderstanding #4. Empaths Help Bring Ascension
“I know all about being an empath. Being an empath means that I get drained by people. But I can work on this by asking myself whose STUFF I am feeling, anyway. Does it belong to me or somebody else?
“We empaths are so sensitive. Through our suffering, we are bringing Ascension.”
My Recommendation to Counter this Ascension Misunderstanding
There’s an easy way to stop suffering as an empath. Learn the system of Empath Empowerment®.
Start here, which could be plenty. If you want more, make use of other RES resources:
- The rest of my series of books for empaths
- RES workshops designed especially for empaths.
- Personal sessions of RES Energy HEALING, which can move out problems (inaccurately) blamed on “Being an empath.”
Hey, what if you’re interested in other people’s ideas about being an empath? Rose Rosetree is hardly the only empath expert in town!
Might I suggest? Ask yourself this: “Does what’s offered really empower me or not?”
If it really helps you, great! Otherwise, don’t blame yourself. Since much of what’s offered by empath experts, in my opinion, amounts to busywork.
Cleaning your “field” or working on psychological boundaries. Or asking yourself, “Whose STUFF is that anyway?” This cannot help. And it won’t help just because you work at it harder and harder.
Please don’t settle for the other big trend in mainstream empath advice these days: Validation for suffering because, supposedly, empaths have chronic problems, almost a disability. Or teachers who advise you to beware of other people, avoiding “emotional vampires,” etc.
(Hint: With Stage Three Energetic Literacy or more, you can tell there are no emotional vampires, psychic vampires, or energy vampires. Just people with great intentions, maybe. But not-so-great skills.)
And Speaking of Misunderstandings Related to Being an Empath
I sure heard an earful at the Pathways Expo.
What’s weirdest, to me? Much of the mainstream conversation today uses these terms: Empowered Empath and Empath Empowerment.
Well, the former is protected by copyright, related to Rose Rosetree’s books “The Empowered Empath: Quick & Easy” and “The Empowered Empath: Owning, Embracing and Managing Your Special Gifts.”
As for “Empath Empowerment,’ this is not just some popular meme. It’s the name of Rose Rosetree’s trademarked system, the only one in America to help empaths. (Empath Empowerment®.) What kind of “authority” rips off the work of somebody else?
So use your consumer smarts. About empath or ascension or opening up to “higher energies” because, supposedly, they can fix all of humanity’s problems.
In Conclusion (For Part 2 of this Series, Anyway)
Only one kind of being can make this world good. Human beings. People like you!
So make your life good. Do what you can to help others in practical, honorable ways.
And live with your feet on the ground. It’s spring. Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, at least. Check out the gorgeous perennials that are coming up from earth soil right now.
Do we really need to swap that out for some hypothetical utopia called “Ascension”?
