Deeper Perception Made Practical

Sue Grafton Aura Reading

Sue Grafton Aura

Sue Grafton Aura Reading. Why celebrate the recently deceased author? A for admiration, B for her bravery, C for compassion….

Sue Grafton Aura Reading. Although saddened by her recent death, I welcome the chance to read Grafton’s aura. Because I’ve been such a fan. You too?

How many of her great Kinsey Milhone novels have I read? Every one but the latest. Several more than once.

For practical purposes, I’d call Sue Grafton my favorite novelist. (Hope that doesn’t blow my cred as an “English major.” And professional writer.)

Why My Favorite?

As a writer, I marvel at the artistry of each tale. Nothing formulaic here, except for the alphabetical sequence. From “‘A ‘is for Alibi” to “Y is for Yesterday.” Magnificent, witty, purposeful prose!

Also those characters…. How did Grafton develop that delightful character, Milhone? Demonstrating all the cool boy scout values. Kinsey managed to be unsanctimoniously Trustworthy + Loyal + Helpful + Friendly + Courteous + Kind + Thrifty + Brave to the Max, Clean.

Notably, the Kinsey’s other virtues included:

  • Independent rather than obedient,
  • Sarcastic rather than cheerful
  • Decidedly irreverent
  • Generous
  • Funny

Especially I loved reading descriptions of how Kinsey Milhone would clean her home. To me, more satisfying than any other kind of “porn.”

Enough about my reasons, though, Blog-Buddies. I do invite you to share your admiration of this novelist. Plus any other comments, of course. How about help for those of you who are new to energetic literacy, chakra databanks, etc.? Just scroll down to the end of this post.

Here’s the photo I’ll use for solving some of the mysteries of Sue Grafton. Supplementing this delightful interview by Terri Gross.

1. Sue Grafton Aura. Root Chakra Databank for Connecting to Objective Reality

Symbolic Size

29 feet


Exceptionally detail-oriented. Almost as if she’s placing her sensory perception ahead of all else.

Unexpectedly, and sadly, I encounter a sober reality. “Sober” as in joyless. Not on a par with the desiccated reality of an opioid addict. (A type of aura reading I’ll be doing for you’ all later this month. As discussed last month.)

Maybe this is a biochemical heritage from Sue Grafton’s alcoholic parents. Whatever the cause, I find the most ennobling determination. As if everyday life means climbing up high stairs. (The grim part.)

Yet Sue Grafton has trained herself to make an extra effort. Every step of the way she insists on taking one big step after another. Doing what she can to savor being alive. Indeed, that’s the ennobling part.

Nothing like “Be positive.” An attempt that you may know I debunk. Among other ways to help you have a better life. In “The New Strong.” Grafton’s version of reality is far more gritty than most folks have. Human to the core. And intensely powerful.

2. Sue Grafton Aura. Root Chakra Databank for Making Money

Blog-Buddies, I’m curious. Just since the 77-year-old writer earned multi-million literary advances. And did this year after year.

Symbolic Size

5 inches.


“Money is a trap.” Evidently Sue Grafton has encountered enough slaves to wealth. More than enough. Prompting a definite wariness of those who value money as if it really meant much.

3. Sue Grafton Aura. Root Chakra Databank for Handling Conflict

Symbolic Size

29 feet.


How fascinating! Evidently Sue Grafton struggled against disliking people. Reflexively she’d start to respond to others sarcastically and sardonically.

But again and again she would pull herself back. Noting, instead, what she could learn as a novelist.

Seems to me, it became a kind of discipline for Sue Grafton. Time and again, aiming to learn from a specific situation. Teasing apart the annoying parts. Including physical details.

No wonder, despite this struggle, I find no malice. Sue Grafton may have written about murderers and murder suspects. And she may have survived a horrible childhood. Plus a vicious divorce. Yet she categorically refused to become a hater.

4. Sue Grafton Aura. Root Chakra Databank for Verbal Integrity

How could I resist reading this one? Often Kinsey Milhone bragged about being a liar. Supposedly the basis for her ability to spot other liars.

Symbolic Size

3 inches. Under-functioning.


Loss of innocence over spontaneous truth telling: When did that happen. Probably long ago.

For sure, Sue Grafton doesn’t automatically tell the truth. She even enjoys observing the impact of her words. Slightly detached, sometimes curious.

What will happen now that she’s uttered the slightly-shaded truth “XYZ”? Keeps life amusing for her.

Nothing vicious here. More like some family tendencies that she couldn’t escape. (Oh, Sue, I wish I could have facilitated some sessions for you of RES Energy HEALING!)

Stuck as she was, with a broken relationship to veracity… Perhaps Sue Grafton turned that slightly twisty way of noticing truth… to the most creative purposes possible.

5. Sue Grafton Aura. Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connecting to Spiritual Source

Why include this category, Blog-Buddies? I’m so fascinated by how people connect, or don’t connect. Every nuance inspires me, one way or another, as an Enlightenment Coach.

Symbolic Size

40 feet


Sparkling with Divine connection.  Not an ideological kind of connection. A real one.

At the time of this photo, what’s happening? Obviously Sue Grafton’s posing with her latest novel. “‘Y is for   ” novel.

Gratitude, honest gratitude, adds beauty to the display at this Third Eye Chakra. Which, already, is so humanly and free-willishly glorious!

Finally, Background on Energetic Literacy

In today’s aura reading, I used a technique for aura reading from photos that you can learn to do too. Start by learning basic aura reading on people! That on-demand course in energetic literacy is available now. And so is the 5-part online workshop, Aura Reading — Free Intro.

You can also learn the system of Aura Reading Through All Your Senses from my book by that name. That how-to contains over 100 practical techniques. Reading auras from photos isn’t included, but plenty else is. This how-to provides a comprehensive training that’s perfect for beginners.

Reading auras from regular photographs is just a slightly more advanced skill, almost ridiculously easy. Remember, when you have skills at energetic literacy, every photo is an aura photo.

As for the symbolic measurements used for describing each one of the nadis, or chakra databanks, you can learn about that from this article . Related to my practical book about reading auras for more success, Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy.

    Thanks for another fascinating reading.

    I am curious how she could have had such a small symbolic size for the root chakra bank for making money and yet make so much money. Interesting!

    Rose Rosetree says:

    A common question, ANONYMOUSLY ANONYMOUS. To expand it a bit, folks often wonder this sort of thing:

    “If Joe’s aura shows a small size, or messed-up quality, at his Root Chakra Databank for Making Money, why does he have so much wealth?”

    Or “If Gladys’s aura shows a small size, or messed-up quality, at her Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source, why is she so famous for being a religious authority?”

    Or “If Pat’s aura shows a small size, or messed-up quality, at his Belly Chakra Databank for Sex Appeal, why is he so successful in Hollywood as a sex symbol?”

  3. 3
    Rose Rosetree says:

    One possibility: Joe and others earned that present status from previous actions, before that chakra databank wasn’t doing so well.

    You know, like glory days of yore.

    It’s not as if your financial portfolio or position within the Catholic church whooshes in and out to keep pace with anyone’s ever-changing chakra databanks.

  4. 4
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Another possibility: Gladys and others earned that present status from actions in a previous lifetime, also known as good karma.

    Haven’t you ever been baffled by somebody’s good reputation? Undeserved, far as you can tell.

  5. 5
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Another possibility: Pat’s way of being kind of messed up meshes perfectly with what’s going on with millions of fans.

    So, to them, his pretty repulsive way of being “sexy” becomes a fad. The New Sexy.

  6. 6
    Rose Rosetree says:

    One more idea in response to your excellent question, ANONYMOUSLY ANONYMOUS: At the time of the photo, Sue Grafton had published 26 previous books.

    Unlike you or me (or other writers who hang out at this blog), she could have been just a bit jaded by all that success. So that one more high-profile book signing felt more like a nuisance than a thrill.

  7. 7
    Rose Rosetree says:

    “Yeah, yeah, Book #27.”

    Kinda like, “Yeah, yeah, Baby #27.” From the mom of a very large family.

    So sitting at her table, taking yet one more publicity shot, getting ready to spend the next three hours signing autographs for gushing fans… maybe the author of the Kinsey Milhone mysteries just wasn’t feeling it. Just for a minute.

  8. 8
    Rose Rosetree says:

    And, therefore, that chakra databank you inquired about wasn’t at its usual plumpness and gratitude.

    Maybe quite atypically!

  9. 9
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Which can bring us to an even more important point about what energetic literacy really shows us.

    I never promise that an aura reading of one person, at one particular time, proclaims THE FOREVER TRUTH. Only Divine-Level gifts of the soul last a lifetime.

  10. 10
    Rose Rosetree says:

    This represents quite a contrast to ideas in collective consciousness and pop culture about the nature of auras.

    Even if you no longer believe in them, guess what? You’re still influenced by people who say that your aura is one single color. As in, for life.

    Think I’m kidding? Check out the 2 million + hits here on “What color is your aura?”

  11. 11
    Rose Rosetree says:

    One reason why I give you’ all so many comparison celebrity readings is to bring home the glorious, amazing spiritual truth.

    Living here on earth, we’re evolving minute by minute, second by second. Our ever-changing auras are part of the spiritual light show… far more transformation than most of us ever think is happening.

    Valerie says:

    I am very interested in the answers to these questions Rose.

    I find her databank for handling conflict very interesting, that she refused to become a hater. In many of these databanks she seemed to have an insistence on learning, no matter how difficult it was.

  13. 13
    Valerie says:

    Another thing that I like is how very down to earth she was.

    She struggled with very human things, and clearly just did the best she could to continue growing.

  14. 14
    Rose Rosetree says:

    VALERIE, you’re right. Seems to me, Sue Grafton did struggle. But as a grower, never a victim.

    Here’s the best link I could find, in a reasonable amount of time, to an excerpt from an interview Grafton gave to Terry Gross.

    I think this is the interview I heard on the radio recently.

  15. 15
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Sue Grafton was describing how she was similar in some ways to fictional Kinsey Milhone.

    Kinsey was orphaned at age five by a car accident.

    While Sue had two alcoholic parents. Dad managed to hold down a job. Mom was a stay-at-home person, and not functioning well at all.

    Sadly, by the time she was five, the drunks in her family were in such bad shape that Sue Grafton had to pretty much raise herself. She joked, she didn’t do a very good job. But in her defense, her parenting experience was limited….

    Kylie says:

    Very interesting reading and comments as well.

    I read her A-Z series up until about N, when I had stopped enjoying them as much.

    Even more interesting now, knowing that the author was similar in some ways to her character. What a funny/sad interview comment. Seems like she did an awfully good job raising herself.

    Lilian says:

    Thank you Rose! Just out of curiousity, this sentence was interesting:

    “Maybe this is a biochemical heritage from Sue Grafton’s alcoholic parents. Whatever the cause, I find the most ennobling determination. As if everyday life means climbing up high stairs. (The grim part.)”

  18. 18
    Lilian says:

    It would be interesting to consider if this a physical biochemical thing, or something more on an aura level… simply from being exposed to parents in an “alcoholic state of consciousness.”

  19. 19
    Lilian says:

    Like learnt auric modelling that maybe she couldn’t shake.

  20. 20
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Thanks for your comments, KYLIE and LILIAN.

    LILIAN, I was referring to a biological perspective, DNA. There is no such thing, far as I know, as a permanent effect of someone else’s auric modeling. And we really don’t learn it from others, either.

    Good that you’re thinking about all these things, though. There is a great deal to think about concerning energetic literacy.

  21. 21
    Lilian says:

    It’s just interesting to think we could know more about this kind of thing in years to come.

  22. 22
    Julie says:

    I haven’t read Sue Grafton’s books, but I found this reading interesting.

    That she reflexively chose not to become a hater…seems like a choice actually that a lot of people are faced with today.

    Gotta love Earth School and how it gives the opportunity to exercise whatever muscles we want to exercise!

    Rose Rosetree says:

    LILIAN and JULIE, thanks so much for your comments here.

    JULIE, your #22 strikes me as tremendously insightful.
