Deeper Perception Made Practical

Joe DiMaggio's Grace. A Comparison Aura Reading

Joe DiMaggio's Grace

Joe DiMaggio’s Grace and also his very human klutziness — both explored in today’s blog post

Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Exceptional for athletic grace, how did he manage being human? Towards understanding, let’s do a comparison aura reading.

“The Symbol of American Grace.”  That’s the first thing you’ll see at the website dedicated to him. And then you can continue to read about his 13 years with the New York Yankees.

Or you could bunt over to Wikipedia for extra photos and more details. (Including a bit about anti-immigrant prejudice towards Joltin’ Joe’s parents. Honestly, when is my country going to grow up?) More upliftingly, in 1941,  Joe DiMaggio held the Major League Baseball record with a streak of 56 consecutive games.

Sometimes Graceful, Other Times Klutzy

What really got me interested in Joe DiMaggio’s grace? Once again, I’m inspired by Sarah Kaufman’s book, “The Art of Grace.” Eloquently she drew attention to a poignant contrast in his life, the graceful athleticism versus the social awkwardness. Yes, he had a 57-game batting streak. Yes, he also was a bit of a klutz with fans. And even with his wife.

Blog-Buddies, did you know that he was married to Marilyn Monroe? Yep, at the height of her fame.

But did you also know that he loved her but sometimes couldn’t speak to her? Their marriage lasted just nine months.

When divorced he insisted on taking charge of her funeral. And talk about romantic gestures: Sending red roses to her crypt, year after year. And yet, he couldn’t talk to his wife, Marilyn….

A Comparison Aura Reading Can Bring Clarity

So here are links to the photographs I will compare and contrast. One chakra databank at a time.

First, graceful Joe, The Athlete. (Here’s a link to the source for this aura picture.)

Second, Joe, The Man. He’s pictured with Marilyn Monroe in 1953. They married the year later. (And here’s a link to that photo source.)

At the end of this post you’ll find a list of other Comparison Aura Readings. Most of them, I went into considerable detail about this application of energetic literacy. So how about this? After reading at least one of these, if you have any questions about my methodology in doing a Comparison Aura Reading, let me know by writing a comment below.

Now, let’s get to it.

#1. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Root Chakra Databank for Making Contact with Physical Reality

Joe, The Athlete

Out to the moon. Over-functioning.

Joe DiMaggio’s consciousness expands while he’s playing ball. (Hey, that’s what talent is, folks. When you add skills and luck, there’s an amazing sight like the one captured in this photograph.

What kind of consciousness expansion? Seems to me, DiMaggio experiences a three-fold awareness:

  1. He’s one with the physical environment. As you might picture a Native American a thousand years ago, or others today who live a simpler life. No mobile phones. 😉 And a sense of oneness with nature.
  2. Causational information about how physical reality works, specifically baseball. Joe DiMaggio is receiving downloads. Bits and bytes of information. Yes. No. Yes. No. So he can slip into the right configuration of movement.
  3. And none of this would get him to first base without the third component, being strongly present in his exceptionally coordinated physical body.

Joe, The Man

80 feet. Over-functioning a bit.

Seems like “Life is a sexual fantasy of excitement, thrill, and incredible fulfillment.” While he’s with Marilyn Monroe in this moment, everything about physical life has been sexually charged.

Holding her hand, as he does in this photo, he’s practically having a “hand-gasm.” 😉

#2. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Root Chakra Databank for Awareness of Myself While with Others

Joe, The Athlete

1/8 inch. In shut-down.

Joe DiMaggio doesn’t need to pay attention to himself. At the time of the photo he’s transcending his personal self. (Other than using the body as described in the previous chakra databank.)

Joe, The Man

40 feet. The large side of normal for Joe DiMaggio’s aura at this time.

He’s golden. The giver of pleasure. A greater lover than he is a baseball player.

Not arrogance here! Maybe you’ve felt something similar, Blog-Buddies. Being in love, when the relationship has a strong component of special magic… It can make a person feel almost godlike.

#3. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Root Chakra Databank for Awareness of Other People in the Room

Joe, The Athlete

1/8 inch. In shut-down.

Other people don’t matter any more than his own human identity. Not at this moment.

Of course, Blog-Buddies, I’m sure you know this. When reading the “business end” of a chakra databank, it’s ever changing.

That’s why we can do a comparison reading. And why there was far more to Joe DiMaggio than showed in these two pictures, or the seven chakra databanks selected for me to research for you.

Joe, The Man

40 feet. Normal range of functioning.

Could it be? I just have a hunch that the human being of great interest to Joe in this room is a certain person named Marilyn.

Seriously, she’s imbued with a godlike charisma and sexual power — the perfect compliment to his own.

#4. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Belly Chakra Databank for Sex Drive

Joe, The Athlete

1/8 inch. In shut-down.

Watching Joe DiMaggio hit that baseball? That could amplify sex drive for many a spectator.

But for the man himself, he wasn’t involved in his human life. Not exactly. See the aforementioned three points about the exquisite, even celestial, quality to Joe DiMaggio’s awareness when playing baseball.

Joe, The Man

Out to the moon. Over-functioning.

Evidently Joe DiMaggio is pretty darned compatible with Marilyn sexually, because… Well, you can put this one into words for yourself, no doubt.

#5. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Heart Chakra Databank for Connecting to Others Emotionally

Joe, The Athlete

80 feet. Over-functioning a bit.

He plays this game for love.

Which emotions go through Joe DiMaggio at this moment?

Surrender to the beauty of the moment. Bringing love. Curiosity. Gratitude. Bliss. And also the detachment of transcendence.

Joe, The Man

80 feet. Over-functioning.

Oh, so in love! Marilyn Monroe is a fantasy woman of perfection, femininity, sexual allure, and every possible quality that Joe could find in a woman.

No wonder he couldn’t talk to her, Blog-Buddies! From time to time, I’ve helped clients in sessions of RES Energy HEALING, and a big factor has been “Love with a Fantasy.”

How well do you think that can work, over time? How humanly workable can such a connection be? Especially long-term!

#6. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Throat Chakra Databank for Communication with Strangers

Joe, The Athlete

40 feet. Within his range of normal functioning at this time.

When Joe DiMaggio is in the Zone, like this, he’s eloquent. In a way, he’s communicating with the baseball.

In professional baseball, every skilled pitch turns the baseball into a “stranger,” right?

Feeling fully resourceful when communicating withe the baseball, this fluidity spills over into this chakra databank. In this moment, Joe DiMaggio could speak to human strangers with equal effectiveness.

Joe, The Man

1/8 inch. Shut-down.

Why would Joe DiMaggio possibly want to connect with a lesser mortal. Compared to Marilyn Monroe? You kidding?

If I might make another observation, drawing on my experience with clients. Such as when using the skill called 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment®.

How unusual do you think it is that a person who doesn’t communicate well with other people yet. (I say “yet” because we have a motto in RES, “STUFF can always, always, always be healed.)

How unusual is it that the person has all-or-nothing relationships?

And how unusual to fall in love with a fantasy, rather than a flesh-and-blood mortal human?

#7. Joe DiMaggio’s Grace. Throat Chakra Databank for Communication in Love Relationships

Joe, The Athlete

80 feet. Over-functioning a bit.

All I wrote about Joe DiMaggio’s aura in this photo, describing that Chakra Databank #6. That goes double here. Even literally, with the symbolic size of the databank!

Joe, The Man

2 inches. Close to shut-down.

Oh, so tender and sweet!

Seems to me, here is a breakthrough relationship for Joe DiMaggio. In his adult life, he has never been so close to anybody.

Yet, experienced though he is as an athlete, communicating while in a relationship like this? Having a love relationship like this?

Oh, he’s at the beginner stage.  The skill level of communication goes like this:

  • Because I love, what I feel is true.
  • Because you know me too, you can feel my feelings and read my mind.
  • I can’t sully my feelings with mere words. That would cheapen our love.

When in a good mood, as shown in this photo… the feelin’ could be contagious.

But day after day, when married? Communication when grumpy? Communication when there are problems to solve.

At the time of this photo, Joe DiMaggio doesn’t have a foundation of communication skill for a close relationship. By comparison, it’s as if he didn’t quite know how to hold a baseball bat, let alone swing it.

In Conclusion

It’s all so very human, isn’t it? Even one of the greatest and most graceful American athletes of all time…

He couldn’t escape human stumbling.

Hey, that’s why I call this place, “Earth School.” Like a sports stadium where the game invites us to gain very personal points about growth, spiritually and emotionally, socially and ethically.

From what I’ve seen here, Joe DiMaggio sure did that.

    What a sweet human being he was.

    Earth school can be so scary, and yet so joyous. I found it particularly interesting that he had never been so close to anyone in his life, before Marilyn.

    I can relate! But what a sweet opportunity to be given to learn about Communication in Love Relationships.

    Very cool Rose. I watched Field of Dreams Last night so a timely baseball reading.

    This reminds me a bit of when I’ve had cords to “players” cut-Marilyn being the player in this case.

    Cords include things like “no one will ever compare to this person..” That can be very detrimental to finding a love partner after the relationship is over.

    Isabella C. says:

    Love this. So fascinating.

    According to Marilyn’s wikipedia page, one of things that Joe was disturbed by after they married was her “disdain for bathing.” I guess his fantasy Marilyn smelled better!

    Isabella C. says:

    I especially appreciate the final part of this aura reading, about communication in love relationships. Wow! You put it so clearly, Rose.

    Thanks, Rose, these are always so fascinating.

    Kylie says:

    Sweet! What an interesting contrast.

    That is funny Isabella, about his being disturbed by Marilyn not bathing. That could definitely blow the fantasy.

    THe simon and garfunkel song has jo and loneliness and him going away in the same stanza.

    “Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio
    A nation turns its lonely eyes to you
    (Woo, woo, woo)
    What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson
    Joltin’ Joe has left and gone away”

    Reminds me of the old saying ‘you can have everything you want, just not all at the same time’.

    He had his baseball talent and a fantasy wife, just lacked basic communication skills.

    Checked out the comparison aura reading on Benedict XVI Pope.

    Wow. A shocking amount of nastiness in the man who was supposedly infallible.

    I totally admire your readings, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    David B says:

    Thanks, Rose. Interesting how different someone can be in public and private.

    Can’t imagine having a relationship that was so public!

    I enjoy reading your blog. 🙂 I hesitate to bring this up, but I noticed something in the picture of Joe Di Maggio and Marilyn.

    Joe has his hands clasped together. I don’t know if this makes any difference. Hope you don’t mind that I pointed this out.

    Rose Rosetree says:

    Thanks to all of you who’ve been commenting.

    Regarding that Comment #11, EGYPTIAN EMPATH, if I weren’t such an experienced aura reader, that clasp (plus having someone else’s hand touching), would definitely have been a deal-breaker. But being pretty experienced at this sort of research, it wasn’t a problem for me.

    Glad you’re thinking like someone reading auras from pix.
