Completing Oscars 2010, Celebrating Community


Blog-Buddies, like you, perhaps, I’ll be watching the broadcast tonight, stopping occasionally to do Aura Reading Research or even the occasional Empath Merge during an acceptance speech.

How I wish that big awards were given every day here at Earth School — and to the likes of us. Seems tedious, having to wait for a Life Review to receive all the feedback. 😉

Jeremy Renner, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #10 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading

In “The Hurt Locker,” Jeremy Renner portrays William James, the author of The Varieties of Religious Experience.

Wait, no, that William James wrote an amazing book about mystical experience, definitely not this movie.

Ahem! In the nominated role, William James is a staff sergeant who thrives on the risk and danger of his job, which happens to include Varieties of Religious Experience. Oops, defusing bombs.

Morgan Freeman, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #9 of 10

In “Invictus,” one great man portrays another. Morgan Freeman portrays Nelson Mandela.

This move recounts how the South African president seizes on the national rugby team’s chances in the World Cup. Mandela was seeking a means to unite his country.

Recently, one of our Blog-Buddies, Suzanne, expressed the desire for more movies about inspiring, self-actualized people. Keeping that in mind, roll up your sleeves, or unfurl your techniques for aura reading research, and join me in our assessment.

Colin Firth, Oscar Nominee #8 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading

“A Single Man,” Colin Firth plays George, a gay man in the early 1960s who must hide his grief over the death of his lover

At this point in my movie watching career, Mr. Firth feels like honorary family to me — along with the rest of the cast of “Mamma Mia!”

Sure, I loved that movie in  the theater, especially Colin’s guitar and voice solo —  my favorite part, along with “Dancing Queen.” But during my last trip to Tokyo, I re-re-re-watched every bit of that DVD on my computer, clutching it like a lifeline.

George Clooney, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #7 of 10

“Up in the Air,” George Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, who makes his living firing people and who prides himself on the absence of emotional connections in his life.

Although I haven’t seen this movie yet, I have had a client who had exactly that job. “Joe” didn’t pride himself on the absence of emotional connection but he numbed himself pretty darned well.

When Joe first came to me for Energy Release Regression Therapy, he was taking medication for narcolepsy, the illness where a person mysteriously falls asleep “for no reason” in the midst of everyday activity.

Jeff Bridges, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #7 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading


In “Crazy Heart” Jeff Bridges plays Bad Blake, a washed-up country western singer whose meeting with a young journalist may help him turn his life around.

I’ve heard this second-generation performer interviewed on the radio on “Fresh Air,” and he’s a remarkably intelligent man. What will our aura reading research turn up, though, about his resourcefulness as an actor?

Meryl Streep, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #5 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading


In “Julie and Julia,” Meryl Streep portrays cookbook author Julia Child, whose years in France with her husband inspire her to study the art of French cooking. 

I’ve read her aura so many times, and it’s always a pleasure to do Chakra Change Research on her. Moreover, this is a nominated movie I actually saw.

So captivating was it, for me, that I never stopped to read anyone’s aura. Instead I wanted to wallow in every yummy illusion. Bring on those energetic literacy skills right now!

Gabourey Sidibe, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #4 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading


First, meet the courageous actress in her more glam role as movie star.

As Precious, in “Precious,” Gabourey Sidibe plays a pregnant teenager who struggles to overcome years of abuse at the hands of her parents.

It’s a gritty movie, to put things mildly. I saw a short clip while in Japan… because I was watching Larry King with Mariah Carey as guest. Ah, cable TV in Tokyo, my lifeline to chit-chat in English! Watching that evening’s show, discussion of the movie was within my comfort zone. Watching even that very short clip was not.

Carey Mulligan, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #3 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading


In “An Education, ” Carey Mulligan plays Jenny, an English schoolgirl who is seduced by the charms of an older man. 

What fun, to read this fresh-faced newcomer. Doing this kind of aura reading research, it’s a shift from the usual alternatives to pre-Oscar buzz. We don’t have to gossip about Ms. Mulligan’s social life, repeat recycling quotes, or speculate about what motivates her as an actress.

No no, we get to use energetic literacy instead, that distinctively third millennium skill.

Helen Mirren, Aura Reading of Oscar Nominee #2 of 10

Annette Bening Aura Reading

In “The Last Station,” as Sofya, Helen Mirren portrays the wife of Leo Tolstoy, and is locked in a battle with the admirer’s of her husband, the great Russian author whose royalties are being settled.

Helen Mirren has been researched in past roles for chakra-change points. She has always won full points, if I remember correctly. I expect amazing shifts at the minute auric level and fascinating artistic choices, as well.

It’s going to be a special treat to do aura reading research on her one more time for this year’s Best Actress nomination. And — let me tell you in advance, now that I’ve finished the research — the treat is way bigger than I first expected.
