Deeper Perception Made Practical

Bad Advice, Good Advice. June Newsletter

Bad Advice, Good Advice

Bad Advice, Good Advice. Worth considering. Since even expert advice can have its drawbacks sometimes.

Bad Advice Versus Good Advice. That’s what we’ll explore here at this blog post.

And also in the upcoming issue of “Reading Life Deeper.”

Bad Advice, Good Advice, So Hungry for Advice

Have you ever noticed that certain ideas are just plain sexy? And not necessarily words about sex!

Here are 10 of the ideas that make people stop in their tracks. Maybe not physically drool. But folks tend to take notice.

  1. Sale (As in saving you money.)
  2. Free (As in costing even less money.)
  3. Your purpose. (As in finally someone is telling me what I should do.)
  4. Look better.
  5. An easy trick for better health.
  6. More sex, better sex. (Finally?)
  7. A ridiculously easy way to improve everything.
  8. Instant… (anything good).
  9. Inside information.
  10. Tips! Advice! Secrets!

Craving Good Advice

(But Maybe Sometimes Vulnerable to Bad Advice)

Hey, that’s what it is to be human.

Admit it, don’t some or all of these 10 ideas wake up the eyes within your eyes?

Like you might pause or stare or listen or think or hope… just a bit more than otherwise. As if a perfect life might be just one helpful hint away!!!

Incidentally, did you notice? I put tips-advice-secrets at the end of this little list. But really all the others are variations on “Great advice to help you get a leg up in life.”

Therefore, I’ve Devoted the Main Article in My Newsletter

  1. 1

    Just to lead things off, here’s an example of advice. When Donald (from “Bigger than All the Night Sky“) and I shared an apartment, he bought us a nice potted chrysanthemum with sweet yellow flowers.

    As it happened, Donald was friendly with some stoner car mechanics in our neighborhood and mentioned that we had these flowers. (A rare thing, the only time we ever had flowers in the apartment.) Well, they gave him advice.

  2. 2

    “Snip off the flowers,” they advised him. “Then many more will grow back.”

    Sadly, this was a practical joke in the guise of advice. Trustingly Donald destroyed our sole, aspirational flowerpot.

    Rose -I have a good advice story…

    when you suggested that I cut back on alcohol..

    which lead to completely stopping and now almost two years later it was the best advice.

    Destiny says:

    I would say a bad advice story was someone telling me a spa day was just what I needed.

    It wasn’t my thing and it was a very expensive day and I won’t do that again.

  5. 5

    DESTINY, thanks for being the first to step up and participate in this thread. Reading what you wrote, it occurs to me that an interesting aspect of advice is how it fits into the rest of a person’s life.

    For example, Comment 4, that advice was for “making your physical appearance a major concern,” not your thing. So the spa day didn’t interest you in following up, for example, by spending two hours daily on skin care, hair styling, makeup, wardrobe. That advice didn’t match your life. (Of course it helps that, IMHO, you happen to be gorgeous.)

  6. 6

    By contrast, regarding your Comment 3, many an alcoholic (pardon my saying, but you know, back in the day…)

    Many an alcoholic is frequently given advice to cut back or stop drinking altogether. Or life itself keeps providing one intervention after another. But in your case, that advice — and your choice — was backed up by sessions of RES Energy Healing.

  7. 7

    Consequently, the STUFF which caused you to drink… ceased to exist. After each phone session, your soul was expressing more clearly. That’s what made your choice stick.

    I’ve had the privilege of helping others to stop alcoholism, or smoking weed; doing porn or video games or too much sex. Never thought of it before your comments, DESTINY, but each client was following up on advice. Or a choice.

  8. 8

    Will that choice succeed? Subconscious, energetic STUFF is the hidden factor, isn’t it?

  9. 9

    One other reaction to what you wrote, DESTINY, just to clarify about the sort of thing any RES Expert does. Regarding Comment #3, when did I suggest that you might cut back on drinking?

    Only after we had had a considerable number of sessions. The drinking problem was evident right from the first session and Skilled Empath Merge, but I didn’t bring up the suggestion until: #1, You were a lot stronger as a person and #2, and it became apparent that the drinking was tied to other problems that bothered you, problems your sessions had been helping to solve.

  10. 10

    For those of you who haven’t had an RES session yet, please don’t fear that any RES Practitioner or Apprentice would blurt out something like “Stop drinking booze” in a first session.

    It’s an important (even defining) characteristic of the model for helping clients in RES sessions: The client brings an intention, chooses “How I want to grow, emotionally and spiritually.”

    That snip off the flowers is correct. But it’s done only when the flower has wilted.

  12. 12

    Ha, so there’s some new advice. Thanks, JNANA.

    At the time I thought it’s good to take advices from hairstylists and fully trust them jajaja with your hair.

    One time I got advice to get a bang and add layers to my hair. It didn’t look that good. I was so disappointed when I got home and took my time looking in a mirror.

    Destiny says:

    Thanks Rose for that follow up and compliment ?.

    I have benefited from many RES Sessions around alcohol, and you did not suggest that right away.Still remains the best advice, and choice, I made for myself.

    I’ve been given advice about treating strangers better than your own family, valuing your family’s needs above your own, and finding a man to marry instead of focusing on career.

    Morgan says:

    I was given good advice to not watch TV, read computer, or do anything else while eating. This would help me with recognizing that I’m full and have the eating experience.

    It’s a slight change but it really does help my mind and body know that I’ve eaten enough and know when to stop.

    David says:

    One of the best advise I got from Rose, years ago, is never ask people “should” questions as you are giving away your autonomy.

  18. 18
    David says:

    Also, you don’t learn from the experience if you just monkey what someone else tells you to do.

    I found that I grow wiser when I make my own decisions, for better or worse.

    David says:

    I can now gauge someone’s confidence level by how frequently they use that word.

  20. 20
    David says:

    Rose did mention that it is fine to seek information by asking for someone’s opinion.

    I would like to ask Rose if the following can be a truism: There is information seeking (for the mind) and there is directive seeking (for the heart) and the latter is where the word should comes into play.

  21. 21

    DAVID, what an unusual treat to hear from you as a blog commenter. Regarding your question in Comment #20, personally I’m not a fan of using the word “should” unless it is required for work, the law, or other responsibilities.

    However, it sounds as though you have found yourself a truism that is meaningful for you!
