Deeper Perception Made Practical

Makes You Smile. New Contest.

Makes You Smile

Makes You Smile Contest begins today. Got smiles? Got nominees?

Makes You Smile. It’s high time we had a contest around here.  Don’t you think?

A contest with a Deeper Perception-type prize.

So share your thoughts. Your enthusiasm. And your nominees.

Entering is easy-ish, as always.

Why Did I Choose “Makes You Smile” for a Contest?

Here is what I’ve observed about you Blog-Buddies. Especially those of you who post comments here. (Because I can’t tell much about you’ all who simply lurk. Though you’re always welcome to lurk here, of course. And even to bring in new lurkers.)

Hey, maybe this Makes You Smile Contest will inspire some of you lurkers. To comment! That would be great.

Anyway, about those of you I do know well, guess what? You’re happy people on the whole. Basically, you prefer happiness. And a real kind, spontaneous. Not fakey-fakey.

Plus, have you read a newspaper lately? Maybe not so much Makes You Smile….

So here come details about our latest contest

Nominate Whoever Makes You Smile

I can’t wait to read these nominations. Every contest, you Blog-Buddies bring such great nominations.

Granted, I am awarding three prizes. Not bad. However, three prizes only. Realistically speaking, not exactly a guaranteed prize win for every contest entrant.

Look, on one occasion I did award a prize to everyone who took part in a contest. Unfortunately, that became quite a job for me. And tied up the blog posts for quite a while. These days, please remember that if you don’t win, you could always do this:

Set up a personal session dedicated to learning about people. Favorite celebs. Your brother-in-law. Anyone human, actually. Just send me the pix by email on the day of your session. Granted, this won’t be a free face reading, free aura reading, free Skilled Empath Merge.

But you can definitely open the door to free readings.

Or Just Learn Quality Skills to Do-It-Yourself

For aura reading, that’s easier than you think.

  • First of all, I’ve worked really hard to develop the easiest way to develop Stage Three Energetic Literacy. For life. To sample that resource, take the five-lesson Free Intro to my Aura Reading Collection of online, on-demand workshops.  All those workshops contain lectures and quizzes that just might make you smile.
  • Or you could gain energetic literacy from the how-to book “Read People Deeper.”

Both resources can take you all the way through to reading auras from regular photographs.

  • Alternatively, if you’re an empath, you could learn how to do Skilled Empath Merge. The most in-depth kind of experience of somebody’s who-you-be! Which you can learn from starting with Book 1 in my Empath Empowerment® series.
  • You can do Skilled Empath Merge with photos just by reading “Become the Most Important Person in the Room.
  • And, if you’re bold, go all the way to the set of amazing skills in “The Master Empath.

Please Don’t Forget the Face of Whoever Makes You Smile

Because you might choose to nominate some folks… Whose faces just make you crinkle up in the lip-and-cheek areas.

What’s one reason why that person makes you smile? You can figure that out, surely. And then go ahead to nominate here.

Who’s your first thought about a public figure with a face? One that you’d like me to give the full physiognomy treatment!

In this contest, I’m going to select at least one winner who DOES request a face reading.

Nonetheless, if you don’t win that kind of Contest prize, you sure can do it yourself, too.

The aforementioned “Read People Deeper” can get you started. Although I’d recommend my most comprehensive — and fun — book yet. My favorite how-to dedicated to learning the system of Face Reading Secrets®.

What If You Do Win?

Pretty sure that will make you smile! Because I’ll publish a Face Reading or Aura Reading or Skilled Empath Merge of your nominee. And you’ll get to choose which. (In fact, I’ll ask you to name your choice right in the nomination.)

Okay, here come the rules.

Nominate Somebody Great. Someone Who Makes You Smile.

Here are the rules:

Please use a separate comment box for each contest nomination. Or more than one comment box, if it’s a long entry. (Which would be fine!)

To be considered a contest entry, your comment needs to include all the following:

  1. Choose a public figure you’re curious about.
  2. Supply the name of your nominee.
  3. Please supply a one-click link to a photo of your nominee.
  4. Tell us why this person has been known to make you smile. For instance, it might be about personal growth. Or an inspiring story of spiritual awakening. Or any kind of success whatsoever. Maybe something entirely different! (You’d know.)
  5. Describe what that person is famous for. Because not all of us may know that famous person as well as you do.
  6. Most fun of all… Choose whether you would prefer a face reading, aura reading, or Skilled Empath Merge.

Contest closes June 10, 2018.

    Rose, I nominate Austin Perine for an aura reading, a four-year old from Birmingham, Alabama, who brings sandwiches to the homeless. This was his idea, and originally, he used his own his own money. He’s got a lot of supporters now!

    He makes me smile because because of the kindness he shows at such a young age. His glowing smile is contagious, as well.

    I’d like to nominate Melissa McCarthy who is an American actress, comedian, writer, fashion designer, and producer. She is the star of the comedy Mike and Molly, and has been in many funny movies.

    Whenever I need to smile I will watch a Mike and Molly rerun or one of her movies-especially Bridesmaids. Her movie/show characters are so sincere, she is full of verve and has a beautiful smile that is contagious.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I’d like to nominate millennial journalist/perennial optimist, Ezra Klein.

    Clear-eyed analyst of national politics and policy, yet somehow still smiling and positive about our national future. Not sure how he does it!

    For a voice aura reading, here is a link to Ezra Klein’s podcast, an episode fittingly called Optimism about America:

    Liane says:

    Oh yay, something fun! The first person that popped in my head is Colin Mochrie of ‘Who’s Line Is It Anyway’.

    His face makes me smile, his talents as a comedian always makes me laugh.

    Liane says:

    When I’m in the dumps and need to lighten up, or it’s gray outside, or it’s been too long since I’ve laughed, Colin Mochrie to the rescue.

    With so many interesting features, I’m requesting a face reading….. if my entry wins : )

    I’m going to nominate Kim Yuna, a famous figure skater from Korea. My sister and I love to watch clips of her skate, although she is now retired.

    Her skating seems so effortless, artistic and graceful. She won many Olympic medals and was the highest paid athlete in the Games.

  11. 11
    Kylie says:

    In Korea, figure skaters are like rock stars and she is known as “the Ice Queen.”

    I imagine that she must have had a lot of pressure dealing with her success and fame.

    Kylie says:

    I’d love to see a skilled empath merge of her while skating in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics:

    Blog-Buddies, these nominations are just great! I’m especially impressed that D. requested a voice aura reading.

    Other than a contest expressly dedicated to this new kind of aura reading, clairaudience-based, I don’t think anyone has requested that sort of aura reading in any contest. If you’re curious to learn more about sound-based aura reading, here’s your link.

  14. 14

    Finding that link for you’ all, I just realized that D. has given a better name to this technique than I originally did. From now on, “Voice-Based Aura Reading” it is. Rather than “Sound-Based Aura Reading.”

    Thanks, D. 🙂

    How about Michael Curry? Michael Curry is the Episcopalian Bishop who wowed everyone yesterday at Harry & Meghan’s wedding.

    Here’s a link to his photo (can’t find a good one of him on the actual day that isn’t a video):

    Graham says:

    I’m nominating him because I think he made the whole population smile (and the British newspapers too, which is quite a feat).

    I’d like to request a skilled empath merge please.

    Holly says:

    Hi Rose!
    I would like to nominate Seiji Yokoyama. He is a Japanese composer who passed away last year.

    He wrote the music for the televised cartoon series “Saint Seiya”. There are concerts where the symphony plays only songs from the show while scenes flash on a white screen.

  20. 20
    Holly says:

    There is a lot of physical fighting in “Saint Seiya”. However, I don’t notice that part very much.

    I mostly notice what they are fighting for.

  21. 21
    Holly says:

    The music makes everything meaningful.

    I consider the music a big part of the acting, (even though they are all just cartoons).

  22. 22
    Holly says:

    The main antagonists each have a musical theme. In different situations, the foundational melody of the theme is played with a different set of instruments.

    Sometimes with the flourish notes on top, sometimes without. This is so genius to me!

  23. 23
    Holly says:

    I like to set one song on repeat when I go to bed so it is the last thing I hear when I fall asleep and the first thing I hear when I wake up.

    It also helps me fall back asleep if I wake up in the middle of the night. I have recently gone back to a song titled “Saint of Hope” from “Saint Seiya”.

  24. 24
    Holly says:

    Today, I woke up smiling to “Saint of Hope”. And now I’m here to nominate Seiji Yokoyama for an aura reading.

    Thank you, Rose!

    HOLLY, what an eloquent and detailed nomination. Thank you.

    I’m especially moved by the wisdom in your Comment 20. Yes, there’s fighting but you don’t notice that. Instead, you notice what they are fighting FOR.

    Blog-Buddies, this just made me smile. From today’s Washington Post, a fabulous article, rippling with links, to give you 15 cool ways to improve your default privacy settings.

    Edward Grant says:

    I would like to nominate Hugh Grant for an aura reading please.

    I have recently been watching Hugh Grant play Jeremy Thorpe in a series on the BBC called “A Very English Scandal”. It is such a different role I am used to seeing Hugh Grant play and it literally put a smile on my face.

    Edward G says:

    I would like to know how he is doing as I have heard he is having the time of his life.

    Edward G says:

    Lastly I would like one of my all time favourite actors Benedict Cumberbatch for an aura reading please.

    I have started watching a series where he plays Patrick Melrose. I like him because he is so talented and also because he mixed big premier movies with smaller TV projects like Patrick Melrose.

  31. 31
    Edward G says:

    He makes the characters he plays believable and I enjoy his performances.

    One of my best performances of his is when he played Shakespeare’s Hamlet on stage in London.

  32. 32
    Edward G says:

    He is a joy to watch and hopefully he is still doing well as an A-lister actor.

    And with this fine pair of nominations by EDWARD G, this contest is officially closed. Looking forward to doing these readings for you, Blog-Buddies.

    Incidentally, I made these last nominations live on June 11, but they came in the day before. I was just busy, enjoying the latest workshop with some of you who are wonderfully active, commenting Blog-Buddies and other wonderful course participants.
