Real Smiles. Sure, in theory you know they’re a good thing.
But what if they might be a bigger blessing than you’ve ever guessed?
Today I’ll share with you some aura reading research. It reveals the spiritual power of a real smile, even with strangers.
Joe Was Intrigued
He read our recent article on Fake Smiles. And he read all the comments, too. (Definitely, I recommend always reading the comments. Quite some community we’ve got here!)
Thus, Joe encountered a startling statement from me. The gist was this:
What if you find yourself fake smiling, and you can’t stop?
Then you might consider booking a session with me for RES Energy HEALING.
So far, Joe has been the only one to take me up on that offer. And our session surprised both of us.
It was helpful in some deeply personal ways that I won’t blab about here. However, I requested permission to describe other parts of our session. Parts of general interest, to put it mildly. Graciously, Joe agreed. So here we go.
Detective Work on Real Smiles
Joe and I discussed examples of times he “Couldn’t keep himself from fake smiling. Just couldn’t help himself.”
Problem solving was highly specific. (Related to some of Joe’s long-term growth areas.) Soon, though, we came to the parts that I’ll share with you today.
Incidentally, what if you’re not sure what counts as a “real smile”? Don’t just make something up.
Among body language experts, an authentic — or Duchenne — smile has very specific characteristics. You can read about that here. Also I go into more detail about “Smile Styles” in my book about body language + face reading + auras, “Read People Deeper.”
Smiling at Strangers. Giving Real Smiles Ever Since Childhood
First of all, let’s celebrate something that many kids do, up to age five or so.
Like what Joe did. His mother used to tell a funny story about how “silly” he was as a kid. Because they’d be out taking a walk, and whenever Baby Joey would see a stranger, honestly! What would he do? Ridiculously friendly, he’d smile really big. Smile at total strangers. And then he’d shout, “Hello! Hello!” As if he were really thrilled to meet people!
How would you know if you were one of those kids? Due to family stories.
Hey, what if you have such a story of acting “way too friendly” to total strangers? Like yelling, “Hello, Mr. Policeman” whenever you’d see somebody in uniform… Please share it below.
In my memoir, I called this kind of friendliness “Throwing My Rattle.” A description appears near the start of my memoir. As for the impact of what Joe and I — and maybe you — were doing back then? You’ll get some idea if you keep on reading.
Real Smiles and Baby Gladys
Which Healing Centerpiece did I facilitate, helping Joe? Vibrational Re-Positioning®.
Together, Joe and I (and God) explored two incidents. Both of these bothered Joe a lot. And he didn’t understand why.
First, Joe was strolling down the street when he saw Little Gladys and her mom. They were walking toward him.
Mom was fiddling with the back of the stroller. By contrast, Little Gladys was looking directly at him.
Joe found himself smiling at the kid, maybe five years old. Sure, he gave a real smile.
But how did that girl respond? It was as though Joe could see her making a choice. She wouldn’t smile back. Nor acknowledge Joe’s smile in any other way.
Joe felt creeped out. He wondered, “What’s wrong with me, that I smile at people I don’t even know?”
What Joe Learned about Baby Gladys from Vibrational Re-Positioning
Pulling out an energetic hologram from the incident — that’s part of Vibrational Re-Positioning. First I researched some chakra databanks belonging to Joe. And then one, just one, from Baby Gladys.
Because regarding that unsmiling kid who glared… one peek at her aura was plenty.
Here’s the gist of what I told Joe:
When smiling, he was reaching out warmly. Like sending out an ocean wave of unconditional love. Sending it to a fellow human.
By contrast, Joe was quite right about discerning that Baby Gladys made a deliberate choice. Straight from that little person’s Root Chakra Databank for Presence in the Room: “I’m a hater. I’m here to hate people, and ruin as many lives as possible.”
Shocked? I was. Because I’ve read that same chakra databank on many hundreds of people by now. And I’ve found a similar mess in the chakra databanks of some adults, not many. Thank God, this sort of wickedness is rare.
However, this was the first time I encountered a practiced intent of hatred, fully formed, in a child.
My Interpretation of a Real Smiles Consequence, Aura-Level
Naturally, Joe felt upset. When you reach out to somebody and that person doesn’t reciprocate, it can feel lousy.
But this became a teachable moment for Joe. (Especially since “Energetic Sub-Routines” were leaving his aura. Remember, we weren’t just chatting. This was a removal of causational STUFF, courtesy of Vibrational Re-Positioning.)
Teachable how? Because Joe understood how this wasn’t a personal rejection. Not in the least.
Would I recommend that Joe feel sorry for Baby Gladys? Definitely not. Why bother.
More important was learning to recognize that human beings differ. Widely! Wildly.
Some wicked people really do live on earth. Right from the start, they come in just as creepy as Baby Gladys. (Given what I’ve learned from facilitating sessions of past-life regression, many souls choose to have a perpetrator lifetime. In which case, the wickedness is established right in the original Life Contract for that particular incarnation.)
Good to Know, in General, about Real Smiles
In general, if you give somebody a real smile and that person doesn’t respond, anything could be going on.
Know that you gave something beautiful. Trust that you really did give something beautiful.
Besides, usually a lack of response is not a rejection of you, personally. More is going on. Just as, in our exploration of different people’s fake smiles, no two people were alike, inwardly. And just as came up in the second part of Joe’s session with Vibrational Re-Positioning.
What Joe Learned about Mr. Grumpy from Vibrational Re-Positioning
Joe also requested energy healing — and more clarity — about another rejected smile. This time, he was shopping at the supermarket. A man walked in his direction. As is his habit (a spiritually powerful habit), Joe gave that stranger a smile. A real smile.
How long does it take to give a real smile? Maybe 4-5 seconds. It takes a while to make the full set of facial movements.
Well, mid-smile, that man turned away. As if recoiling from a slap! Which is why, from now on, I’m referring to that dude as “Mr. Grumpy.”
Researching away, here’s what I found.
Joe was giving his usual gift of a friendly smile. Aura-wise, his aura while smiling showed that he was giving unconditional love. A spiritual kind of love. Something all people deserve to give and receive. Unless they choose otherwise.
Although sweet, Joe’s part of the social equation wasn’t particularly surprising. What was?
Something Altogether Different: Mr. Grumpy’s Response
Let’s break it down, one chakra databank at a time. (Exactly how I shared the aura-level research with my client Joe.)
Mr. Grumpy’s Root Chakra Databank for Presence in the Room
Symbolic Size: 29 feet. Comfortably within normal range.
Quality: Mr. Grumpy was going through a time of sadness, loneliness, loss. He felt terrible. Unlovable.
Not being a psychic, I can’t tell what had happened to him. Was there a recent romantic breakup? A long-term lack of friendship?
All I can tell you, Blog-Buddies, is that Mr. Grumpy wasn’t really feeling angry or snarky. Not at all. More like he felt rejected.
At this point in the aura research, you might wonder, “Why did he reject a simple smile? Why wouldn’t he have accepted it eagerly?”
Well, keep reading. I find that it’s very important to research many chakra databanks. If you want to get to the truth of what’s going on, subconsciously and energetically — then you can do much better than “picking up a vibe” or doing a chakra reading. Energetic literacy allows us to learn the truth about someone in depth and detail.
Mr. Grumpy’s Heart Chakra Databank for Emotional Receiving
Symbolic Size: 80 feet. Somewhat over-functioning.
Quality: Mr. Grumpy was filled up. After a second or two, he had to turn away. Although his heart ached so much, here was something new entering in. Something sweet and caring.
Mr. Grumpy took in all that he could. Like a starving man who quickly gobbles up his first real meal in a very long time.
He filled up… and then some. No wonder he had to turned away, afterward.
His inner reality wasn’t any kind of rejection. You get that, Blog-Buddies? Quite the opposite
Recognizing this gave me a gentle shock. Serving as a reminder that outer appearances are so different from inner reality.
Mr. Grumpy’s Third Eye Chakra Databank for Connection to Spiritual Source
Symbolic Size: 3 inches. Close to shutdown.
Quality: Maybe you’ve guessed about the quality of this chakra databank. Seemed like a no-brainer, once you read that this chakra databank was nearly shut down. However, if you guessed about chakra databank quality based on size? How much you’ll miss.
Here’s how that quality seemed to me:
Before this moment, for a long time, Mr. Grumpy had felt discouraged, bereft of comfort. Based on the quality of this chakra databank, for a long very time, this man had lived with this chakra databank completely shut down. Like having the door to God closed. Living with no access. And no hope of ever developing any real kind of connection.
But the warmth of Joe’s smile brought a wake-up call. Because every smile of unconditional love is a conduit for Divine love to flow from one human being to another.
Accordingly, that door opened. It opened for this lonely man. Imagine a heavy, iron door creaking open just a bit. Just enough!
Given the quality of the chakra databank, here’s how it seems to me. Mr. Grumpy wasn’t turning away from Joe on purpose. He didn’t mean to act rude. Instead, he needed a private moment. Not looking at anyone human. Instead, and very inwardly, he was having a glimpse of God.
And not simply for one quick moment. His door was open again. A new chance had begun.
You see, Blog-Buddies, quiet miracles happen on earth every day. Miracles caused by love. Including everyday miracles set in motion by unconditional love, directed toward a stranger.
Might I suggest?
Don’t do fake smiles:
- Unless you’re at work, returning somebody else’s fake smile.
- Or unless you’re being photographed, and don’t want to smile all the way, which would scrunch up your eyes.
But what if somebody else has fake smiled at you? You might nod a bit. Or look at the person and do a quick eyebrow lift in acknowledgement. Perhaps both. These are universal forms of friendly recognition.
And what if you’re being photographed and you feel bad about your teeth? You might wish to do a Viggo Mortensen, simply avoiding fake smiles.
Controversial statement coming, not meant to be harsh: Regarding bad feelings about your teeth, are you also going to stop talking? Because every time you talk, you’re showing your teeth. So what?
Even more controversial statement coming, alert! Does vanity really have to outweigh a person’s desire to give others the gift of an authentic smile?
Many people insist upon smiling, no matter what. For example, I’m a big fan of fashion vlogger Justine Leconte. Right at the start of each video, she introduces herself. Then she gives a great big smile, like this. So what if her gums show more than her teeth? Both generous and fearless. I love that about her.
Maybe you disagree with my above-mentioned advice about smiling. No prob. Feel free to share your views by commenting here. You might teach me something. (Other Blog-Buddies, too.)
Compared to what follows, I don’t feel that strongly about how you choose to smile. But I do feel strongly about the following. By now, my client Joe does too:
If you’re going to smile, make it real. Because that’s one way that you can help the grace of God to shine out.
You’ll help bring more spiritual truth… into a world that needs it so much.
