From the Romance of the Astral into Self-Authority. A guest post from ISABELLE

Anyone can shift from loving The Romance of the Astral to a more human-based spirituality.

Anyone can shift from loving The Romance of the Astral… to living with a more human-based spirituality.

Each person’s human journey is so fascinating. Today Blog-Buddy ISABELLE shares the saga of her moving forward in human-based spirituality, celebrating her humanity and self-authority. I have added just headings, links, and the occasional edit for clarity.

Incidentally, you can learn about The Romance of the Astral from this earlier post.

For me, what was The Romance of the Astral?

Well, I had a very romantic relationship with the astral, and for a long time.

This lasted just until last year, when I felt so stuffed by all that astral-level “nutrition” (which I always had thought was healthy and important).

Protect Yourself Energetically from Energy Vampires, Part 3

Could that boyfriend really be an energy vampire who is masquerading as a human being?

Could that boyfriend really be an energy vampire who is masquerading as a regular human being?

Today we continue our series on protecting yourself from difficult people, a.k.a.  energy vampires, psychic vampires, narcissists, draining people, toxic personalities, or just plain “somebody difficult.”

Why do new fears emerge now, almost as if fearing contimination by somebody else’s energies? When you live has a lot to do with it. We’re still getting used to the new Age of Aquarius, whose defining characteristic is this: All humans can notice energy more easily.

You may not go to the extreme of calling that difficult person in your life an “energy vampire” or other names that grew popular in the decades leading up to The Shift into this Age of Aquarius.  Yet you still may feel uncomfortable around certain people’s energies.

What can you do about that? How can you protect yourself? In today’s Part 3 of a 6-part series that began here, let’s consider one very big way you can help yourself to disentangle energetically from the energies of a problem person in your life.

What is an energy vampire, anyway?

The first step in protecting yourself would be to set the record straight. There are no energy vampires. Not figuratively, unless you’re a very sloppy perceiver of energy. And, I’m pretty sure, not literally.

Really, has any human being ever approached you, then growled, “I come to suck your blood”? How about ringing your doorbell, giving you a grim glower, and then announcing, “I come to suck your energy”?

Astral Romance? Avoid It

What is The Romance of the Astral according to Rosetree Energy Spirituality?

Astral Romance. What is the Romance of the Astral?

Astral Romance. One easy way to improve your life a LOT is to stop falling for “The Romance of the Astral.” What is this? Why can it mess up your life?

With this year’s movie awards behind all of us, and snow swirling around some of us, does there seem to be a distinct lack of glamour in your human-type life?

Maybe that’s a good thing.

Today let’s consider why you can help your life bigtime by NOT falling for a certain type of glamour.

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.

Consciousness Lifestyle #2, Spiritual Addiction. An Aura Reading of Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul, ready for his aura reading

Consciousness Lifestyles — let’s continue to explore what they mean in everyday life.

Today’s profile of Rand Paul fits into a multi-part series of articles about how people get in the habit of positioning consciousness.

No mere abstraction, Consciousness Lifestyle creates big consequences for how we live, how rapidly we evolve, the friends we make… even the version of reality that we live in.

Consciousness Lifestyle #2 on our list is Spiritual Addiction.

Not that anyone probably aims for this Conscious Lifestyle. Yet an estimated 45% of Americans have slipped into Spiritual Addiction, inadvertently or not.

One public figure in this category is Rand Paul. I found him for today’s blog post by going onto Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of 2013. Under “Leaders,” the politician scores as #1.

Capture the Fort — Why to Choose Spiritual Development First If You Seek Enlightenment

 

Capture the fort, a strategy for pursuing Enlightenment

Eileen Caddy, founder of the world-famous Findhorn Community, was added to my Enlightenment Life List today.

I met Caddy around 1986, while she gave a talk about her community. By the time of Eileen Caddy’s transition, January 1, 2007, she had evidently reached Enlightenment.

Today I came across a website commemorating Eileen Caddy’s work with the Findhorn Foundation.

It was a treat to research her and be able to  list her as a member of my personal Enlightenment Life List.

Was Eileen Caddy a Psychic or a Spiritual Teacher?

The order matters, at least if you aim to progress on a path to Enlightenment.

Psychic development is about astral frequencies. Often it is said to be equivalent to spiritual development.

Personally, I do not find this to be borne out by my aura reading research. Instead, there are psychic frequencies and there are is also a spiritual frequency.

Chakra databanks, for instance, contain both a gift of your soul (Divine frequency, and permanent) and a changeable size and quality (astral frequency, and healable).

The Findhorn Foundation does attract many people interested in psychic development, no question. However, here is a tipoff about where Eileen Caddy was coming from in her wonderful work. As noted at her website:

“Eileen Caddy first received personal guidance from a ‘still, small voice’ inside herself, a source she called ‘the God Within.’ From that day on she lived her life by that inner guidance, which led to the creation of the international spiritual community that is the Findhorn Foundation.”

Dangerous Random Energies

Dangerous Random Energies

Dangerous Random Energies — might you actively be seeking them out?

Dangerous Random Energies. Please share today’s article with anyone you know who has been told it’s, supposedly, good to “open up to energies.”

Even homeopathy requires it now, I’m told. If you are studying the ancient healing art these days, you are encouraged — strongly encouraged — to “Open up to the energy.”

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!

Astral interactions with humans, three types to spot as a New Age consumer

 

Attention New Age consumers: Astral interactions with humans are too numerous to list in one blog post. But I’ll mention the main ones.

Please be aware that very few of them bear any resemblance to what is popularly known as “possession.” So do not read with fear, Blog-Buddies, but educate yourself instead.

If necessary, repeat after me, “Close relationships with astral beings do not happen without a person’s consent.”
