Deeper Perception Made Practical

William Jackson Harper Aura Reading TV Review

William Jackson Harper Aura — He makes a star appearance in today’s Aura  Reading TV Review

William Jackson Harper Aura Reading TV Review. Especially fun if you’re a fan of one of my favorite TV shows, “The Good Place.”

I’ll be doing a comparison aura reading, one chakra databank at a time. Comparing the actor to his role on that show.

This may be a wild comparison aura reading. Since the character Chidi Anagonye is a uniquely tormented person. Picture an over-the-top, over-scrupulous ethics professor. Stunningly unable to make decisions.

Not a happy combination for that character! But a comedic treat for us TV viewers. Notably, due to William’s surprisingly likeable performance in that role. Definitely, I’m a fan.

Thank you, KYLIE, for nominating this actor. (See our ongoing contest for Aura Reading TV Reviews.  Definitely, check out her Comment #6, Blog-Buddies. And then, maybe add your own nomination for somebody new.)

Aura Reading TV Reviews? Sure

What an Astounding Way to Critique an Actor’s Performance!

Maybe it’s the best way. Although I sure wouldn’t invite the Chidi character to decide. 😉

The Different Roles I’ll Research for You

Here’s the photo I’ll use for researching the actor: William Jackson Harper Playing Himself

It comes from a Newsweek article devoted to the actor. Also concerning his co-star, Kristin Bell.

Did I read this article yet? Definitely not. Since I preferred to avoid learning from the actor’s interview… How William considers himself like or unlike the role he plays.

And speaking of the actor’s role, here’s the Chidi photo I’ll use.

As always, you aura readers are invited to do your own research… Well in advance of reading mine.

You’ve got the pix. You’ve got the skills. (At least, if you’ve taken the trio of RES Aura Reading Workshops. Browse them here.) Comment below with your findings. Afterward, have fun reading my perspective.

Did you know that true energetic literacy isn’t one size fits all? No more than word literacy. One more reason it’s so much fun to do!

This startling aura reading post gives you examples. Such fabulous, varied, aura readings from Blog-Buddies. (See comments!)

In case it helps, Aura Readers, here’s my list of chakra databanks for today’s article:

  1. Root Chakra Databank for Making Contact with Physical Reality
  2. Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Making Decisions
  3. Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Self-Awareness
  4. Throat Chakra Databank for Sense of Humor
  5. Throat Chakra Databank for Communication in Close Relationships

William Jackson Harper Aura. Root Chakra Databank for Making Contact with Physical Reality

As William Jackson Harper, Playing Himself

Constantly living in his head. Analyzing life as an A.C.T.O.R.

As Chidi Anagonye

Symbolic Size: 80 feet. Somewhat over-functioning

Quality: What a world this character lives in! Like a checkerboard landscape in miniature between his feet. And every way he might walk, where will he step?

  • On what’s right?
  • Or what’s wrong?
  • Equally scary, a square that’s impossible to figure out, one way or another.

Clearly, a brilliant creation by the actor!

Aura Change Points

1 full point. Accorded with great admiration. Already, Harper has established himself as a world-class actor.

Most actors don’t manage to change all the way down to their chakra databanks. But he achieves this.

William Jackson Harper Aura. Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Making Decisions

As William Jackson Harper, Playing Himself

Symbolic Size: 3 inches

Quality: Hates making decisions. But doesn’t use his intellect. Has developed a personal method that involves what? To be a bit technical here. He’s got a bunch of energetic subroutines. 

Like many a self-designed technique that seems brilliant? It isn’t.

He simply spaces out and considers that he’s receiving some kind of inspiration. This is the kind of mess I love to help clients straighten out. (If they want me to.) Usually I’ll do Vibrational Re-Positioning®. Or else Consciousness Positioning Consults®.

As Chidi Anagonye

Symbolic Size: 90 miles.

Quality: Working so hard! Like driving at top speed down Germany’s autobahn.

Although unsure, he loves the thrill. Evidently, this character is so good at making fine ethical distinctions. So that making inner distinctions is bliss. What troubles him is getting out of the mental decision making. Sadly, committing to one choice… in reality… is like asking a fish to crawl on land.

Aura Change Points

Another 1. So brilliantly and creatively constructed, this role!

William Jackson Harper Aura. Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Self-Awareness

As William Jackson Harper, Playing Himself

Symbolic Size: 14 feet. Sweetly within normal range.

Quality: So much more vivid than other people. Also more vivid than previously researched connection to physical reality.

Picture, perhaps, some really elegant pate. Combine that tasty density with being studded with rubies, sapphires, emeralds.

Quite simply, the actor (at the time of this photo) is way self-absorbed.

Never in a nasty way. And not necessarily for life. Perhaps another of his inner workarounds. This one, related to being an A.C.T.O.R.

As Chidi Anagonye

Symbolic Size: 20 feet. Smoothly within normal range.

Quality: Although interested in emotions, not caring much about them.

Aura Change Points

1 point, bravely earned. Since Chidi’s way of relating to feelings is exactly opposite to the actor’s.

William Jackson Harper Aura. Throat Chakra Databank for Sense of Humor

As William Jackson Harper, Playing Himself

Symbolic Size:  2 inches. Seriously under-functioning. Close to shut down.

Ergg, I really didn’t expect that. In his role, William Jackson Harper is adorable. As if unintentionally funny.

Quality: Approximately this: Life is hard. I’ve been through so much aggravation. Such unfairness. And so often! I don’t dare to pause and relax. Let alone find things funny.

As Chidi Anagonye

Symbolic Size: 1/8 in. Completely shut-down

Quality: The ethics professor has zero sense of humor.

Aura Change Points

1/2 point. Granted, it’s asking a lot for somebody who barely laughs at jokes to do anything more than he did. Intensifying the humorlessness does count as an achievement. Particularly since it’s happening subconsciously. And at the astral level of Harper’s aura.

William Jackson Harper Aura. Throat Chakra Databank for Communication in Close Relationships

As William Jackson Harper, Playing Himself

Symbolic Size: 80 feet. Slightly over-functioning

Quality: Here we find the sweetness and caring! Here’s a sample of why I enjoy watching this actor’s performances. When the conversation is going to be personal and deep… It’s as though William Jackson Harper finally lands in a kind of reality he believes in.

Wish he could take my workshop this year for Socially Savvy HSPs and Empaths.

As Chidi Anagonye

Symbolic Size: 1/8 inch. Totally shut down.

Quality: Significantly uninterested in people, that’s how the character lives. Incapable of feelings.

Compared to this way of being, Star Trek’s Spock is sentimental!

Aura Change Points

1 point. Un-enthusiastically given, though. Because this is an unimaginative, predictable way to play the character.

In Conclusion

4 1/2 Aura Change Points out of a possible 5. Significant talent on offer!

What’s most important to note about today’s TV review of William Jackson Harper’s performance in “The Good Place?” How he has paid the price for his success.

And if you’ve explored that thread at this blog, you know that paying the price can be harsh. As a result of doing this aura reading, I respect William more than ever.

What else? What I found  reflects my choice of photo. Sadly the one I used for William Jackson Harper probably didn’t do him justice. Clearly, he was posing. And posing at the Critic’s Choice Awards. Not just at the corner Seven-Eleven.

Maybe he felt uncomfortable. Maybe he even experimented with acting while being photographed. As in presenting himself as a bright, hardworking actor. Stiffening up, holding back. Playing a noble role. Inadvertently, maybe turning himself into a bit of a caricature of himself….

That isn’t to say that my chakra databank readings were inaccurate. More that, what I found about him as a person can serve as a practical reminder. People’s auras change incessantly. 

Why did I choose that stiff photo? Because finding one was harder than you might think. I searched diligently to find a natural-looking picture of the actor as a person: William Jackson Harper simply being himself, and caught in a good head-shot. No such luck!

Bottom line, what did I learn about him as a person? How seriously Mr. Harper takes being an A.C.T.O.R. Probably that’s unlikely to change any time soon. Nonetheless, he is living his dream.

    Fascinating! Thank you Rose, what a nice surprise.

    Kylie Sparks says:

    I was kind of shocked when I saw the photo of him, because he looks so unlike his character Chidi!

    When I read his root chakra databank for presence in the room I got: sharp, angry, guarded and in a bad mood. My first thought was, he hates these kind of events.

  3. 3
    Kylie Sparks says:

    Reading his solar plexus databank for analyzing his life: very analytical, keeps track of all expenses, scores, who did what to whom, unfairnesses.

    Keeping track of his own performance, judgmental and driven.

  4. 4
    Kylie Sparks says:

    In his chakra databank I noticed anger at stupidity. I didn’t read any more databanks, because it seemed like all I was getting was anger and I was puzzled.

    Where was all that sweetness I remembered from his role as Chidi?

  5. 5
    Kylie Sparks says:

    Reading your aura reading and conclusion helps me make sense of my experience.

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he was acting for this photo! Definitely paying a price for success.

  6. 6

    KYLIE, thank you for sharing your perceptive aura reading research. Yes, maybe Mr. Harper was acting for that photo.

    What strikes me as most interesting? How he’s given the very best of himself in order to create and play that sweet character. The generosity of artists, William’s included, is a wonder… and an also an inspiration to me.

    Liane says:

    Very insightful aura research!

    This is telling of how hard he works as an actor. Even if he (as himself) is somewhat off balance. Really, who isn’t… at times? Like you said, “People’s auras change incessantly.”

  8. 8
    Liane says:

    Researching his aura for myself, I was left wondering if William Jackson Harper is an empath, or an HSP.

    He takes himself very seriously, measuring out just enough of himself to get by socially. This is how he copes with being highly sensitive.

  9. 9
    Liane says:

    As Chidi, he has developed a complex way to be the opposite of himself.

    For instance his Throat Chakra Databank for sense of humor reveals how unintentionally and accidently funny he is; on the small side.

  10. 10
    Liane says:

    As himself, the same Chakra Databank revealed a very specific not-everything-is-funny, sophisticated (still small) sense of humor.

    Similar is size, opposite in quality.

  11. 11

    Wonderful comments here, LIANE. I hope you won’t mind if I make a teaching point, though about Comment #8.

    Learning Stage 3 Energetic Literacy, as you have, is a big deal. You’ve got a lot of understanding and skills, as show clearly in the rest of your comments in this set. However, I have not trained you how to discern if somebody is an HSP or an empath. (Like with the Christmas toys, “batteries sold separatelyl.”)

  12. 12

    In my opinion, as an Empath Coach, Mr. Harper isn’t an HSP, let alone an empath.

    For reference I like to use a sensitivity scale from 1-5. Where 1 is for an HSP (or empath) and 5 is for somebody who is as thick as a brick. Seems to me, he’s a 4 — pretty highly IN-sensitive.

  13. 13

    Unless one has both a lot of experience reading auras, plus extra training, it’s very easy to jump to a faulty conclusion (and then elaborate on it). In Harper’s case, for instance, he’s got a lot of STUFF in his aura. A lot!

    And, for him, that makes him highly reactive. However, that isn’t the same thing as being a Highly Sensitive Person. Hope this makes sense.

  14. 14
    Kylie says:

    Fascinating! Reactive seems like the perfect word to describe him.

    Also, I love the point you make in comment number 6 Rose, about how he gives the very best of himself in his acting.

  15. 15
    Liane says:

    Teaching point much appreciated! No way am I qualified to tell if someone is an empath or HSP. I wasn’t guessing, or jumping to conclusions. Only wondering.

    Now I understand why (to my non-expert aura reading self) it may have seemed as though he was highly sensitive. Harper is highly reacitve, not highly sensitive. The nuances are so delicious! So much to learn! Thank you, Rose.

  16. 16

    KYLIE, thank you for that insight. Sometimes people who might be called “reactive” think, “It’s my nature.”

    In my experience, what’s true of just about any limitation that people explain away like that? It’s that person’s lack of social skills or STUFF (which can always, always, always be healed) or both. Plus it’s a set of habits. That’s all. So, will the person choose to get past it or not?

  17. 17

    LIANE, you’re so magnificently teachable. When I first read that Comment #8, my first reaction was send you a private email, education just for you.

    But then I realized two things: Sharing this info in the form of blog comments would benefit others as well. And your desire to learn is far, far greater than your pride.You’re an inspiration to this teacher, LIANE.

  18. 18
    Liane says:

    One of my favorite things you do is provide teachable points. You maintain your high standard of truth and what is right by ….. teaching!

    Yet another reason this is such a safe and respectable place to land.
