Aura Reading Brian Chung for Spiritual Insight. Ordinarily I don’t use energetic literacy skills to highlight a person’s religious and spiritual life. But….
Brian Chung is the leader of the dynamic duo who formed Alabaster Publishing. Brian was the first one to have the idea. Why not publish tiny little Bible books? For instance, a set of four books for the Gospels. So beautifully illustrated! No wonder Alabaster’s making money by selling the set of four for the bargain price of $100.
Look, many good people choose to live Post-Gutenberg. Makes sense that, for them, the words of a sacred scripture aren’t enough any more. People need — and will pay for — an EXPERIENCE. A pretty experience, loaded with pictures!
So the first Brian teamed up with the second, Bryan Ye-Chung. And now they’re full-time publishers, making good money. Hardly are they the only publishers of fancy Bible experiences, of course.
Brian and Bryan — with their last names, respectively, being Chung and Ye-Chung — caught my attention. Ever since I read an article about them in the Washington Post, “An Instagram-worthy Bible aimed at millennials.”
Are We Starting to Live in a Post-Gutenberg World?
Because that’s where these Cute Little Bible Nibbles are headed. Away from lame old “reading.” And toward something so much more like eating candy. Thanks to all you Blog-Buddies who commented at our first post of this little series.
Evidently there’s a consensus among readers of this blog. Get this: You can have an experience from reading itself.
Really? You don’t need pretty pictures to have an experience? Rather, you can have your own experience as a result of interacting with words on a page or a screen.
It’s called READING. You do it mostly inside your own head. Lovely for those of us who have enough of an inner life to find that interesting!
Look, I can’t blame either Brian or Bryan for today’s decline in book reading. But it sure steams me up, thinking that a Christian would need pretty pictures in order to read what? Some graphic novel? No, only their religion’s most sacred scripture.
Yowza! Can you see why I plan to read each of these publishers’ auras? Might you, too wonder, “What is going on with their own connections to God?” Given, the nature of their commercial venture. Containing pictures like this one… Have they caused extra-vivid spiritual experiences for Brian or Bryan? Perhaps experiences of spiritual awakening that are intense enough to have left a mark on their auras?

Hey, what if you’re new to the kind of energetic literacy I’ll be doing here? For background, check out these aura reading essentials.
Here is the photo I’ll use for this aura research. The guy who’s actually holding the book called “Psalms” — he’s Brian.

Aura Reading Brian Chung. Belly Chakra Databank for Using Creativity
Will I find Divine inspiration lurking in the part of Brian’s aura specializing in creativity? Let’s find out what makes his creative juices flow.
3 inches. Quite close to shut-down.
For Brian, creativity is social. You reach out to others and share something.
In short, creating things is wide. Not deep.
Could be, we’ll find a similar shallowness in other chakra databanks. Who knows? (I love the mystery of aura reading. Every single chakra databank tells its own story.)
Aura Reading Brian Chung. Root Chakra Databank for Presence in the Room
This chakra databank is a very popular one at this blog. Also in my research for clients. That overall presence is like your gravitar online, only no PhotoShopping allowed. (Except in the rare cases of folks with a knack for sending out a Personality Projection.)
20 feet. Easily within normal range.
Brian boasts a sturdy connection to material life, like money and status items like clothing. Having beats inwardly experiencing, at least for him, at the time of this photo.
Putting this another way… Although Brian can certainly think, thoughtfulness is entirely absent — at least, according to this sample of his hundreds of chakra databanks.
Aura Reading Brian Chung. High Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Growth
For many Christians… Likewise for followers of other religions and spiritual paths… Sometimes an inner experience is deeply emotional. A person feels something. And so I’m wondering if Brian Chung is one of those whose contact with religion helps him with personal growth that’s mainly emotional.
Leave it to Stage 3 Energetic Literacy to add discernment about what kind of feeling the person has. Such as:
- Emotional experiences through religion
- Versus spiritual experiences through religion
- Versus psychic experiences through religion
- And even sexual allure to experiences through religion
So fascinating, those inner experiences! And aura reading helps us to sort out which is which.
Such a kind man, this Brian Chung! And, by now, maybe this won’t surprise you… Seems to me that his emotional growth is purely social.
Like having people thank him for making these mini-Bibles! Like being friends with the other Bryan. Noteworthy, though:
Sometimes an experience of spiritual awakening transforms the nature of a person’s emotions. This can happen with infinite variety, depending on the individual.
Perhaps some of you Blog-Buddies might wish to share a bit about how an experience of spiritual awakening impacted you. Did you become more friendly? More humble? More emotionally generous?
However, I find nothing remotely like this… in Brian’s chakra databank about emotional growth. Instead he’s just a warmhearted guy, very social.
Aura Reading Brian Chung. Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source
Who is worthy to publish a new edition of the Christian Bible? For that matter, who is worthy to write as a spiritual teacher?
Certainly I don’t believe in rigid qualifications. (Like certifying your vineyard in accordance with very-very-picky French law. ;-))
However, what’s one major reason that I hope that everyone with word literacy develops at least Stage 3 Energetic Literacy? So that we can develop discernment. Anybody can use words like “God.” But what is that person’s experience, energetically and subconsciously?
This chakra databank is a starting place for exploration of inner truth.
2 inches. Habitually close to shut-down, seems to me.
Rock-hard certainty. As if Brian is sure that he knows everything about God and religion.
Hardly unusual in Evangelical Christians! Also this kind of shut-down is very common in Fundamentalists belonging to any religion.
However, let’s think about the context here. Brian, remember, is the one who actively became a Christian. Following that, he couldn’t summon up interest in reading his new religion’s most sacred scripture. And now he’s helping other people, presumably folks like him, also have a pleasant time looking at the pictures. Instead of boring old reading about what Jesus taught.
Aura Reading Brian Chung. Third Eye Chakra Databank for Spiritual Growth
Often coinciding with strong religious adherence is this: A lack of interest in personal growth. As in, “Hey, I made my deal with Jesus. Now all I’ve got to do is keep believing. He’ll take care of me.”
Seems to me like a very “Age of Faith” belief. Perhaps no longer so useful since now we’re all living in The Age of Awakening.
Anyhow, it’s possible that Brian is growing a lot spiritually, due to bringing the Bible to new readers. Here I think of what I call The Missionary View of Religion. Like the more you bring into the fold, automatically your connection to the Divine will become more glorious. Kind of like winning cosmic money.
Personal disclaimer: Thus far, my research helping RES clients leads me to believe what? That The Missionary View of Religion is utterly preposterous. Gamely, though, I’ll put all that aside and explore the last chakra databank of today’s blog post.
1 inch. Very close to complete shut-down.
Concentrated confusion mixes with… well, to put it plainly… arrogance.
It does seem as though Brian believes in The Missionary View of Religion. According to which, his spiritual growth is pretty darned super-special.
