Sally Hawkins Aura Reading Movie Review. Does she deserve to win the Oscar for her performance as a mute in “The Shape of Water”?

Sally Hawkins Aura Reading Movie Review. Counting as #6 in our series of 2018 Academy Award research articles, this one will be unique. Because the Oscar-nominated actress plays a mute woman. And I’ve preceded this article with what, for comparison?

A Skilled Empath Merge of a woman who really is mostly mute. Might I suggest you read this Skilled Empath Merge before reading further in today’s post?

What Else Is Extra Interesting about

Today’s Oscar-Nominated Performance?

When nominating Sally Hawkins for an aura reading, ETHAN wrote:

I finally was able to see this movie and I really enjoyed her acting.

She plays a mute, isolated woman who develops a unique bond with a mysterious creature. She used body language very well and had a strong physical performance of the mute role.

Uh-Oh, Brilliant Body Language

What intrigues me here? Blog-Buddies, you may know that I’ve done loads of Aura Reading Movie Reviews by now. (Easy to find, right here: Best Aura Reading Movie Reviews.)

Exceptionally skilled shifts to body language can come from two totally different approaches:

  • Sometimes the actor focuses so hard on the physical aspect of a performance, hello! So that actor scores zero Aura Transformation Points.
  • Other times, the actor inhabits the role so deeply, it naturally impacts the body language. And then the actor achieves a great many Aura Transformation Points.

Which will it be for this acclaimed actress? I’m game to find out. How about you?

Okay, Let’s Bring on the Basics

First of all, the movie is “The Shape of Water.” Here’s the trailer.

According to the official website for Academy Awards 2018:

As Elisa Esposito, Sally Hawkins plays a mute janitor. Transforming her lonely existence, she discovers a secret project. In the government lab where she works.

Note: This description balances ETHAN’S beautifully. Supplying a fine objective-reality summary. Contrasting with ETHAN’S summoary about subjective reality.

Concerning this distinction, recently we had some teachable moments at the blog. Here, at Comments 53-66.

Nuts & Bolts

New to aura reading movie reviews? Here’s some good backstory about aura reading. Noteworthy: to me this is simply a form of energetic literacy, that’s all! Quite different from what you’ve probably encountered so far about auras. Such as psychic readings. Or energy medicine descriptions of health-related problems with your energy field.

Besides this understanding, what if you’re spiritually minded? Then you might also want to know this optional aspect: What makes aura reading “spiritual.”

In addition, the last link takes you to an explanation of how I do aura reading movie reviews.

Merrily moving through different aura parts, we’ll compare one chakra databank at a time, within the Sam Rockwell’s aura.

Here’s the photo I’ll use to research the actress’s role as Elisa.

While here’s a photo of Sally Hawkins playing herself.

Sally Hawkins Aura #1. Root Chakra Databank for Making Contact with Physical Reality

As Elisa

5 inches. Nearly completely shut down

Like many an actress today, it appears that Sally Hawkins is struggling with her main job requirement: Meeting the anorexic ideal.

Clearly, it’s not for me to say whether or not she’s technically anorexic. Rather, I hear a long-term wail of “Feed Me” coming from Ms. Hawkins’s Root Chakra databank. Which is aura reading, pure and simple.

In addition, I notice Sally Hawkins pushing herself. Aiming to show the intense emotion. Push it out into her face and body language.

As Sally

2 inches. Very close to shut down.

At the time of this photo, Sally Hawkins doesn’t notice reality much. Instead she’s very self-conscious. Feels “fat” and hopes that her billowy dress will disguise it. Seems to me….

Aura Change Points

0. Poor kid! Suffering this much, can Sally experience much… other than her own misery? Maybe not, subconsciously and aurically.

Sally Hawkins Aura #2. Root Chakra Databank for Trusting Life

As Elisa

4 inches. Very close to shut-down.

Highly disciplined as an actress, all the way down to subconscious habits….

Seems to me, Sally Hawkins isn’t bothering to manipulate this aspect of life. Her “usual” peeks through.  Like “I’ve got to do everything on my own. Life doesn’t help me. People don’t help me.”

A vivid experience, habitual. But will it count as acting?

As Sally

1 inch. Even closer to shut-down.

Sour. Bitter. These are the qualities that come to mind.

When it comes to trusting life in general or people in particular? Sally Hawkins does the equivalent of holding her nose in disdain.

Aura Change Points

0, sadly.

Sally Hawkins Aura #3. Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Sharing Power

As Elisa

2 inches

Feeling like a terrible victim.

As Sally

2 inches

Feeling like a terrible victim

Aura Change Points


Sally Hawkins Aura #4. Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Growth

As Elisa

2 inches. Extremely close to shut-down.

Life seems harsh. This character believes in that idea. Accordingly, victimhood isn’t even a choice. More like an unquestioned way of life.

As Sally

20 feet. Moderately well functioning, size-wise.

Clearly emotional growth matters a great deal to Sally Hawkins. Sadly, though, is what I find in the texture of this chakra databank. Seems to me that, to this actress:

“Emotional Growth = Analyzing My Feelings”

Accordingly I find many confusions, a certain amount of arrogance, and a great deal of rigidity. Hardly what would satisfy most people as meaning “emotional growth.”

Aura Change Points

1 aura change point. The actress doesn’t believe in feeling like a victim. Yet she has played one.

Once again, I refer you Blog-Buddies to the research I’ve done of a real person, Christy Smith. Deaf ever since she emerged from her incubator at the neonatal hospital ward. And deaf for life, not just one movie role.

Not a shred of victimization in her aura.

Gee, why do you think the public loves this actress in the role of a victimey mute?

Sally Hawkins Aura #5. High Heart Chakra Databank for Soul Thrill

As Elisa

1/8 inch. Complete shutdown. (At least, at the time of this photo. People and characters can always grow.)

Hard-working actress Sally is straining every nerve, delivering a compelling performance.

At the level of this chakra databank, she equates straining and pushing with soul thrill.

Perhaps some day she’ll learn differently….

As Sally

1/8 inch. Complete shutdown.

Hard-working actress Sally is experimenting at this time in her life. Experimenting as if struggle and portrayal of victimhood are worthy goals. Really making her happy.

Hey, it’s her life!

As an RES practitioner who frequently does Soul Thrill® Aura Research, my view is quite different. To make rapid progress towards Enlightenment, for instance, genuine soul thrill is required. Not an expensive imitation.

In Conclusion

Aura Change Points

1 out of 5

Sally Hawkins has nailed the dramatic role, evidently, in terms of her body language. Apparently the role of a vulnerable mute, who struggles with love.

Movies are often manipulative. Since that’s what many viewers want. But there’s moving and then there’s strongly manipulative.

Just how manipulative is “The Shape of Water”? Blog-Buddies who’ve seen it, do tell.

I’m guessing, it’s designed to be a many, many hankie film. Even the best photo I could find as a basis for today’s aura reading of Sally in her role… It struck me as melodramatic in the extreme.

Although melodrama is not to my taste, victimhood does sell. Sometimes as well as sex. And maybe enough to win Sally Hawkins an Oscar.

    Oh dear! Rose, I know this isn’t supposed to be funny but there were points during reading this when I started chuckling…

    This would be a great post to read for anyone who wishes they were a ‘famous actor…!’

    Wow, I have never felt so uncomfortable reading an aura reading.

    “No, thank you” to this movie.

    Ahh I am sad to hear that Sally is struggling in her Soul Thrill

    -well more illusions smashed thank you Rose

    -that is why I enjoy these readings-to learn.

    Ethan says:

    It was criticized of the movie that it does contain many multiple, gratuitous female nude scenes that didn’t necessary add to the story so ..yes sex might sell this one.

    Ethan says:

    I did see the movie and come to think of it melodramatic does describe it well.

    Michael Shannon was in it and I was disappointed his character was so mean and horrible because I do like his roles usually.

    Thanks, GILLIAN and ISABELLA and ETHAN for these comments.

    ETHAN, and other Blog-Buddies who saw “The Shape of Water”…

    If this question isn’t indelicate, would you let us know? Since you saw Sally Hawkins in nude scenes, did she look emaciated to you? (Not counting breast implants, of course, the standard requirement for Hollywood actresses along with their skinniness.)

    I’m curious because of what I found in that aura reading, about feeling not thin enough.

    Kylie says:

    I didn’t see the movie.

    I was interested to read last night that the director is being sued by a famous playwright’s son for allegedly ripping off the plot of the movie from the play.

    There were far too many points of similarity to be chance.

  9. 9
    Kylie says:

    So, it’s manipulative, victim-y, melodramatic and perhaps stolen!

    Lacking integrity all the way.

    I will not be surprised if Sally wins an Oscar however, because it seems like exactly the kind of movie the Oscars love.

  10. 10
    Ethan says:

    She isn’t shockingly emaciated but first impression is noticing how skinny she is- and you can see that in her face/hands and limbs anyway.

    I think she ensured for herself that she wouldn’t get criticized because nothing was out of place for the nude scenes-she perfected for herself a perfect Hollywood body with no fat, no parts moving around-a very rigid cardboard cut out body.

    Thank you, Rose, for mentioning the teachable moments. I’m trying to catch up on reading here at your blog and may have otherwise missed that.

    Helpful useful distinction!

    Today two new celebrities have joined our Enlightenment Life List. And not A-listers, just very successful public figures. A pianist and a psychotherapist.

    Can you guess which ones? Details are here, of course. Thanks to LEO and LOGAN, and to all who participated in our latest batch of nominees.

    Emily T says:

    Rose I think she seems too skinny anyway!

    It’s so bizarre how often I see actresses in magazines and straight away I think they look skeletal but it goes unnoticed by the people around me buying them.

  14. 14
    Emily T says:

    And I duly acknowledge there are people who are naturally skinny (and my colleagues this week have asked me do I even eat!) but that’s not what I’m talking about.

  15. 15

    With appreciation to you latest commenters, KAYCEE and KYLIE, let’s return to that blunt question I posed in Comment #7.

    EMILY T, Enlightenment does make it extra easy to see past illusions. That’s one of the benefits.

    So I’m not surprised you could see the truth clearly, recogizing the “too skinny” in Sally Hawkins (and others). One of the illusions of post-postmodern society is that a “good-looking” man or woman has attained near-skeletal thinness.

  16. 16

    By contrast, your comment, ETHAN, might show that — although way smart, socially “woke,” and gently honest in your response to my question…. You’re still influenced by the Anorexia Illusion. (Ha, there’s a new term!)

    The Anorexia Illusion being that extreme thinness is a kind of tidying up. cardboard cut out body.

  17. 17

    For whatever, reason, you didn’t find that Sally Hawkins looked “shockingly emaciated” when you saw her in nude scenes.

    And yet you noted, “nothing was out of place for the nude scenes.”

    Also, that “she perfected for herself a perfect Hollywood body with no fat.”

  18. 18

    In addition, you noted, but were not appalled that had “no fat, no parts moving around-a very rigid cardboard cut out body.”

    All that, ETHAN and fans of ETHAN, even though the camera adds 10 pounds.

  19. 19

    Guess that, according to the Anorexia Illusion, society has come to accept that a healthy woman’s body would look “good” with no visible fat. No jiggles.

    And the more like a piece of cardboard — rigid cardboard — the better.

    Personally, I think it’s important that each of us learn to notice that the Anorexia Illusion, the Anorexic Ideal… stinks! Self-starvation is not beautiful. At least, it doesn’t have to be seen that way.

  20. 20
    Ethan says:

    I am humbled by your words and you are right-self starvation is not beautiful.

    Aura reading shows us the truth and Sally is sacrificing to achieve her picture perfect body.

  21. 21

    ETHAN, thanks so much for participating in this educational theme. Isn’t that fascinating, how many illusions pass for reality?

    One thing I enjoy about being in England is watching TV. (At least, true for the five times I’ve been there.)

    Because performers are more likely to have picture-perfect grooming, and costumes, and SKILLS; and real, human bodies.

    Mel says:

    I appreciate British television too.

    Most people on those shows look like people you could see in day to day life, not like supermodels. I’ve heard women say that watching more foreign entertainment was better for their mental health.
