Aura Reading Natalie Goldberg. Today’s guest post is LINDSEY’S contribution to researching the beloved Zen practitioner and writer.
LINDSEY has developed excellent skills from some of my online courses in aura reading.
Before going further, I want to make sure you know that you can learn these skills, too. What if you complete Aura Reading 102? Hello! Like LINDSEY, you can read chakra databanks, as described in this video. (IMHO, those super-detailed chakra databanks are essential for exploring the impact spiritual paths, like Goldberg’s Zen Buddhism.)
Too many people present reading auras as though it’s all about clairvoyance. Hey, I don’t find that to be true. Depends on the system being used.
- I used that photo to research Goldberg’s aura at this blog post Comments #167-186.
- LINDSEY used that same photo as a basis for her independent aura research.
- Incidentally, she’s already guest posted here, aura reading Aretha Franklin.
- Also, Blog-Buddy LIANE also did some superb aura reading at that blog post. Highly independent! See Comments #224-229.
Deeper Perception Made Practical definitely includes reading people deeper. Because that’s where success can show if you seek personal growth and spiritual awakening.
Let’s Hear It for How Independence Grows with these Skills!
Seems to me, about the people most interested in learning how to read auras? They’re like LINDSEY. Highly independent, which is everyone’s right.
My students of energetic literacy want to find out for themselves. Reliable skills make that possible.
Initially Lindsey just added some comments to that popular blog post.
Impressed, I decided to upgrade it to a guest post. (Adding some links, since some of the RES terms LINDSEY uses are quite technical.)
In case you’re wondering, LINDSEY writes about Enlightenment from personal experience.
Lindsey’s Comments about Enlightenment in General
Rose, interesting reading on Natalie Goldberg, the Zen Teacher!
Unfortunately, from what you wrote, it does appear to me she isn’t in Enlightenment of any kind.
Just like the information you shared and found in her Throat Chakra Databank for Verbal Integrity.
In my experience, Enlightenment isn’t compatible with being so strictly controlling of oneself.
Also, I was struck by the absence of Divine Bliss in any and all of her chakra databanks that you read. That’s a big indication to me.
My experience of the Self falling away has been more like a surrendering to God and Truth. At a time when I was asking with pure intention, love and devotion.
Absolutely not like any kind of control of self.
As for Seeming Calm, Does That Necessarily Mean Enlightenment?
As I’ve seen it, an awakening experience can bring about an outward appearance of a stoic calmness.
However, in my experience, this is just one facet or aspect of full God Consciousness.
The wholeness of God consciousness is before any control. It is
- Love and bliss.
Along with soooooo much more that cannot be related.
Yet, inwardly, it’s all rolled into One
expanding expanding expanding…
deep, deep, deep…
RICH, RICH, RICH….
Granted, My Experience of Enlightenment Has Been a Bit Unusual Because…
Based on my experience, it seems to me:
No matter if it’s Traditional or Age of Awakening Enlightenment, it shows in an aura.
Either way, God Consciousness shows up in all the chakras and chakra databanks. So, yes, about Natalie Goldberg, I agree with you Rose: Definitely not in Enlightenment. No matter how huge the connection she has with God!
(In anybody, the size and quality of that connection shows. Especially strongly, I find that when somebody has this connection… It shows in the Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source.)
Note from Rose: LINDSEY does read that chakra databank later in today’s blog post. It’s the very last chunk of aura that LINDSEY researches in this article.)
Aura Reading Natalie Is Fun. But It’s Wise to Limit Technique Time
Another note from Rose: This Enlightenment Coach recommends 20 Daily Minutes of Technique Time, Tops.
Back to LINDSEY: Just now I ran out of Technique Time for reading auras. But I’ll research some chakra databanks tomorrow for my own interest. I’ll share if anyone else finds this interesting. (One more note from Rose: I emailed LINDSEY and wrote, “Yes, please.”)
Thank you for sharing this research, JNANA and ROSE. I wish Natalie well. She is probably still very helpful to so many, which is so important.
Next Day, Dedicated Aura Reading Research
Okay, here’s what I learned from my aura reading of Natalie Goldberg.
First let me preface this with something from my overall experience. Sometimes a spiritual practice doesn’t always yield the desired outcome.
Ironically, that practice can actually become a hurdle to overcome. I’ve noticed this happening to many big time spiritual seekers and teachers.
Personally, I have been there, too. So I feel a lot of love and compassion while sharing.
That said, here’s what I found…
Aura Reading Natalie Goldberg’s Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Analyzing My Life
I picked this one because of Natalie’s Zen background of mind watching/observation. Often required for this type of spiritual path.
Size: Very Large and to the moon.
Quality: A perfected, calculated calmness.
Also, I noticed Goldberg’s highly refined ability to calculate and analyze. As though she’s been trying persistently to manufacture an experience. Perhaps an ideal about what her practice is supposed to do.
Aura Reading Natalie Goldberg’s Solar Plexus Databank for Living in the Present
Pretty important, I think, to a Buddhist!
Quality: “Doing so is what I do, and is of most importance.”
Her mind is fully engaged to be present.
Most noticeable? Controlling her mind rules in this chakra databank as well as the previous one.
Aura Reading Natalie Goldberg’s Third Eye Chakra Databank for Trusting Yourself Spiritually
Size: Large. Over-functioning
Quality: Evidently Natalie finds it personally important to be devoted to her practice. She trusts it. (Not necessarily herself.)
And she pours all her effort into it that: Super-trusting her path.
Aura Reading Natalie Goldberg’s Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source
Size: Close to shutdown
Quality: Ouch! Within this chakra databank, what’s the strongest thing I notice? A deep feeling of being spiritually disconnected.
Also, an underlying shame that she doesn’t experience being connected to Spiritual Source.
Natalie has developed a stoic kind of coolness about that.
However, what isn’t she experiencing? Sadly, no Divine bliss. And no Divine love.
In Conclusion about Natalie
So, overall, this research along with Rose’s, shows what?
Here’s how I’d interpret it. Natalie Goldberg definitely lives her practice. And that path (or her version of it) involves controlling her mind in a detached, calculated way.
The version of Zen Buddhism that she’s attempting is done to perfection.
Regarding the cool detachment resulting from her spiritual practice… To her, this might mean living her ideal of Enlightenment.
LINDSEY Adds Her Perspective Overall
Seems to me, this is not a true living in Enlightenment. This is where Rose’s system, Aura Reading through All Your Senses®, can help bring clarity.
Regarding Natalie’s auric modeling, it could confuse others practicing Zen. Because they might misconstrue this calm, cool, detachment. Mistaking it for the real deal of Enlightenment!
As I have mentioned earlier, in other cases, a person might have an experience of the Divine which appears in a similar demeanor. Only, that’s more a calm, stoic, selfless flow of being which results from a strong and authentic connection.
Personally, I think it’s important to question appearances. Natalie’s version of calm, present, detachment is really a poor substitute. Nothing like the blissful joy and continued expansion that some people may experience within Enlightenment.
There is so much more! Such greater possibilities. And so much more growth and expansion possible within Enlightenment. It’s best not to hold to the old model of Enlightenment as involving the experience of Traditional Enlightenment.
That is why discernment via RES style Aura Reading is so important to me. I can utilize deeper perception to get the truth about a spiritual teacher. Seeing for myself if, at aura level, they truly get a benefit from the practice they are teaching. Afterward I can make my own decision as to whether I want to do follow their guidance.
Pretty smart to do? I think so!
