New Age Versus NOW Age, The Age of Awakening. Part One.

New Age Versus NOW Age — quite different approaches to protecting yourself.

New Age Versus NOW Age? Well, yes.

Last day, first week, of 2017, this educational blog is moving forth boldly. I’m tackling differences between New Age versus NOW Age with a little Think-About-It Series. Ooh, controversy alert!

New Age Versus NOW Age?

Seems to me, in many respects, some great-sounding New Age ideas, no longer work so great. Definitely, they worked just fine back in the day. Now these same sweet ideas might get us into trouble.

If you’re into protecting yourself energetically, or simply having a better life, take a look at what follows. What doesn’t work in this NOW Age, The Age of Awakening?

Veil Gone! That's Our Age of Awakening

Veil gone? Yes, that's the vibrational change in The Age of Awakening.

Veil gone? Yes, that’s the big change in The Age of Awakening.

Veil gone! That’s the single most important thing for you to know about The Age of Awakening. Today’s article aims to make it easier for you to understand what most people don’t know yet.. about what really happened with the Shift on 12/21/12.

Veil Gone!

That’s What Happened Vibrationally on December 21, 2012

Or was “The Shift into The Age of Awakening” really a big fat nothing?

Remember back, nearly four years ago? So many of us heard that something big and important was going to happen on 12/21/12.

Sure, you remember: The end of the Mayan calendar. Sages predicted the start of a truly new age.

Due to all the public conversation, expectations were high. Yet then nothing seemed to happen.

Ascension Alert. Ouch!

Ascension Alert. That sweet longing for ascension turns smart people into dummies.

Ascension Alert! Beware dreams of ascension.

Granted, ascension is a charged word in New Age spirituality. Having worked professionally in mind-body-spirit since 1970, I heard the ascension idea long before it became mainstream. How long ago did you first hear that highly-charged word, ascension?

Today I would like to share a perspective fresh from now, living in this new Age of Awakening. What is “ascension”? And how does energetic literacy bring a perspective that could spare you a lot of unnecessary anguish?

Ascension Alert. Let’s Get Real.

Of course, ascension has a sacred meaning in Christian theology. As in, “Jesus Christ rose on the third day.”

Many who believe in The Rapture are waiting to receive a contemporary type of ascension. As in, “The righteous will stay with God for eternity. As for the rest of you, well, there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. And you’d better practice now… how to hold your nose.”

Talking with Mr. New Age Movement. Guest post Part Two by JEM.

 

Ugliness can be hidden in plain sight

Ugliness can be hidden in plain sight

Let’s complete this guest post by JEM, begun in yesterday’s article, An Alarming New Age Conversation. A guest post by JEM.  She recounts a rather extreme version of what is happening to some New Agers since The Shift into The Age of Aquarius. Still, I wonder, have you Blog-Buddies had similar conversations with people in spiritual addiction?

If so, did you say anything back other than the usual spiritually correct encouragement? Such as:  “How lovely. You are absolutely perfect in every way.”

  • Do you know proud New Agers who are also down to earth and interact well with those who don’t share their beliefs? Or some who are more like Mr. New Age Movement?
  • Same with members of organized religions. Are you finding more extremists now than in years before? Or are these folks adapting beautifully to the higher vibes on earth right now?
  • Do you know some empaths who consider themselves psychic empaths or intuitive empaths and have likewise jumped off the deep end? Or are those empaths getting skills and living well, rather than freaky?

Please comment below with your experiences with folks who have slipped into The Romance of the Astral. Now, you go, JEM!

My dear friend’s identity had shifted into “Mr. New Age Movement”

In effect, I was not having a conversation with this wonderful young man, who I love and admire so much. I was having a conversation with Mr. New Age Movement, as typical New Age beliefs have been programmed into him. Seems to me, the New Age movement has hijacked him.

If Spiritual Addiction were an archetypal force with its own personality, beliefs, opinions and approaches, it would have been just like the conversation I had with my friend.

The Romance of the Astral can be tricky

The Romance of the Astral can be tricky

Recently we shared an aura reading of the New Age teacher Teal Swan. It was in response to a contest prize for Isabelle. My original aura reading is here. And then Isabelle’s luscious follow-up guest post is here.

Additional feedback has come from Blog-Buddy JEM. Of course, this is not meant as a pile-on. Usually I avoid doing aura reading research at this blog about spiritual teachers, healers, etc. On the other hand, it is important to bring discernment.

You, Smart New Age Consumer, have the self-authority to decide for yourself what rings true. You may know I wrote a whole book to alert spiritual seekers to a dead end, the Romance of the Astral. And another book for protecting yourself also brings a very post-New Age perspective to The Romance of the Astral.

No previous guest post at this blog has gone into such vivid detail about that, The Romance of the Astral: Illusions, confusions, distractions for a sincere seeker of God.

Get ready for a passionate essay, folks, heartfelt and (to me) powerfully true.

As usual with guest posts, I add headings and links and minor edits. The voice below belongs 100% to perceptive JEM.

Hi everyone. My name’s Jem and I’m a recovering spirit-holic 😉

I’d just like to comment what amazing, fabulous, intricate times we live in.

Especially challenging times for an empath

Like many of you guys reading this blog, I was born an empath. Plus I had additional psychic dials, to the tune of multiple clairs, turned right up.

Unskilled as I was, you can imagine my “reality” *Pause to vomit heartily here.*

At 17, I turned to the New Age world for help. Those teachers for empaths, like us, were naturals. But ultimately unskilled.

Those teachers did their best, fumbling along in the dark like we all were; but in hindsight it was the blind leading the blind.

They gave me “tools” — here I use that word loosely — that severely exacerbated my ridiculous condition.

Rose Rosetree Radio Interview

Rose Rosetree Radio Interview coming. Read all about it!

Rose Rosetree Radio Interview. It’s coming. Read all about it! Success and prosperity, making more money — and nothing like Law of Attraction!

Money doesn’t grow on trees, but occasionally a cactus can flower. Just as amazingly, we can have a happy conversation about money.

Courageous Rosanna Tufts is bringing me back to her radio show, “The Tufts Get Going!” Watch out, Blog-Buddies. This time we are discussing a really taboo topic:

Does New Age have an especially strong astral component?

 

A question reached me today that coincided with my day off. Irresistible!

Hi Rose, i enjoyed your talk on journeys With Rebecca about money issues and the Abraham / The Secret scams. Thank you for making this public, and revealing the astral entity behind Abraham.

It seems these beings have really krept into our mainstream world rapidly over the last decade or so. I get a sense they are “behind” most of the new age front people. Please do post if you have any other similar interview available. Thanks for your work!

Phony — three ways to avoid seeming phony to others

Phony? That’s not exactly desirable. This blog post gives you three ways to avoid phoning in your life. “Busy” to you. “Phony” to others.

Many a smart teenager goes through a “phony” stage. Not trying to be phony or fake, but obsessively finding fakery in others.

Important, this search for the genuine self and authentic behavior! As teens, we need to figure out who we are and find ways to express it through words and actions, friends and clothing.

Phony? It Matters.

  • As voters, we had darned well better be able to discern authenticity vs. phoniness. (As recently noted in multiple comments related to The Mitt Romney Smile.)
  • As viewers of celebrity photos, we would be wise to spot phony pictures. (As recently noted in Comment 4 by M.)

Some of you Blog-Buddies may even have favorite literary characters who have inspired you in the quest to live authentically. For me, it was Holden Caulfield, hero of “Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger.

The reclusive Salinger never could have imagined the bigger problem today, a huge social problem, an authenticity problem, and source of much interpersonal confusion.
