Horrible-Horrible Weekend. What happened in this cautionary tale?
For starters, it was NOT Joe’s fault.
But it sure became his learning opportunity.
Here’s what happened.
Joe’s Horrible-Horrible Weekend Wasn’t Unusual
Not unusual since how was Joe’s work week? What wrecked the precious sanctuary of his weekend? Absolutely hideous-horrible-icky-and-unfair work experiences. Horrible and unfair to the max!
Picture Joe, a stand-up guy. Honorable in his relationships and also honorable in his profession.
Speaking of that work part, from the outside it might seem that Joe’s career is going great. Yeah, from the outside.
Unfortunately, office politics have created a hideous employment situation for Joe. Words like “unfair” don’t begin to do it justice.
Even worse, the company isn’t just corrupt. It’s very small. Therefore, the Human Resource Department gets away with rooting for “the home team.” To which Joe will never belong.
Complain to that HR Department? Its very existence is either a cruel joke or a crime. For sure, it won’t help Joe one bit.
Joe’s Horrible-Horrible Weekend Began So Idealistically
Temporarily free from the problems at work… And attempting to ignore all the problems at home… What could Joe do to feel better? At first, he tried to relax. Sadly, he was wound up inside, tight and twisty.
So then he did what just about any smart, educated, responsible person would do. “I’m going to analyze why all this is getting to me,” he decided.
After an hour wasn’t enough to solve the problem, Joe made himself a promise. He would devote the entire weekend, if need be. And he wouldn’t give up until he had freed himself up, psychologically.
Why Call this Brave Attempt a “Horrible-Horrible Weekend”?
Maybe you can guess, Blog-Buddies.
By the end of the weekend, Joe hadn’t “resolved” a thing. He hadn’t “cleared up his issues.” Altogether he hadn’t achieved anything helpful at all. Despite the prevalent myths about pop psychology.
Myths that we can easily heal ourselves, if only we’re brave and persistent and willing to find “the cause” of our problems.

How Crazy Is that Widespread Assumption?
So many of us believe, natch! Of course we can serve as our own psychotherapists. (Supposedly.)
Pop psych — such a huge influence in collective consciousness — tells us so.
Actually, how much sense does that make? Let’s say that collective consciousness had seized on a different profession. Allegedly, “every smart person ought to be able to do it yourself.” Maybe:
- Brain surgery?
Yes, I do call it “crazy” how so many good people living today assume they can make themselves into psychologists. Without the benefit of professional training.
Sure become their own therapists… if they’re only smart enough. If they’re only suffering enough!
Preposterous, isn’t it, when you think about it? And yet as common as crabgrass.
Horrible-Horrible Weekends Like this Are Common in The Age of Awakening
If you know much about this Age of Awakening, it can bring you perspective. Why is psychological do-it-yourself-ism widely supposed to stop emotions of discomfort? Why, why, why?
Crazy though it is…
With historical perspective, the belief in “heal yourself psychologically” makes total sense.
You don’t need a PhD in psychology to work effectively with your unconscious. According to a therapist published in “Psychology Today.”
By contrast, according to Rose Rosetree, this is a dubious enterprise for self-help. Akin to working hard on turning one of your feet into an extra hand.
Yet a very understandable notion if you consider the historical context. Psychiatry and psychiatry got started about 100 years before the Shift into the Age of Awakening. (Also known as the Shift Age or the Aquarian New Age — by people whose credentials do not include energetic literacy skills. A literacy lack that just might render them incapable of fully understanding the different age in which we’re now living.)
Unless you’ve educated yourself for surviving and thriving after 12/21/12, by reading this book about “The New Strong,” you may not realize the shift that has happened. In a nutshell, you’ve now got a huge, new vibrational freedom for positioning your consciousness. Freud used to struggle to get his clients to free-associate their way to subconscious insights. By contrast, living today, Joe and you and I and everyone else… can easily go there.
And find what?
Joe’s Horrible-Horrible Weekend Introduced Him to a New World of Pain
Instead of the result he expected. A result effectively promised him by popular psychology! (How many Google hits on “Be Your Own Therapist”? 189 million.)
No wonder Joe turned to working on himself psychologically Yet after a weekend of working on himself so courageously, Joe felt worse. Much worse.
You see, he succeeded at going deeply into his upset feelings. But that only made him feel miserable.
- What if he — or you — really believe in the model of psychological healing? Then give it enough respect to pay for some psychotherapy.
- What if you don’t believe in that model? (And you don’t have to, you know.) Then you might wish to try a couple of sessions of RES Energy HEALING — a completely different way to help people.
RES helps people to grow emotionally and spiritually. Using up-to-date skills for energy healing that work now, in The Age of Awakening.
Rosetree Energy Spirituality isn’t for everyone. But then neither is psychotherapy. (Here I do acknowledge that for some people, professional psychotherapy is THE BEST way to get help. Thank God for brave, wise therapists and psychiatrists!)
What Helped Joe? Really Helped Him!
Fortunately, he had a session with me. Even one session of RES Energy HEALING helped him a lot.
Because STUFF stuck in your aura is like an itch that you cannot scratch. And all the self-analysis in the world isn’t going to budge Causational Agreements or Causational Beliefs or Cords of Attachment or other kinds of STUFF.
By contrast, the skills of an RES Expert really do work, if you give them a chance.
By the Way… Just One More Bit of My Perspective
Joe has been an RES client off-and-on. For many years! But he has been like some of my other clients. (OK, actually, the Joe I’ve described here is actually a composite of several RES clients I’ve had over the years.)
Quickly, Joe appreciated the accuracy and helpfulness of sessions with RES Energy READING. However…
Although he would never put it to me so bluntly, Joe didn’t bother with sessions of RES Energy HEALING. Why not? Here’s why, in my view:
Because collective consciousness doesn’t yet offer much acknowledgement of the Really Effective Skills of RES. It’s still quite new in the world. And quite different from establishment values.
While collective consciousness influences all of us that “Pop psychology is the way.” Thank you, Oprah. 😉
As a refreshing, effective alternative, please consider this perspective, Blog-Buddies. Whether for yourself or for friends you have who are struggling:
Psychological self-analysis could make problems worse, not better.
Also, you don’t have to “believe” in RES Energy HEALING sessions for them to work. Just do one at a time. No contract. No commitment. Simply one session at a time. It just might free you up from suffering through life “one day at a time.”
