All the Academy Awards nominees for Best Actor have given
outstanding performances… on the surface. They spoke their lines
believably, developed an interesting character, got the voice, the
walk, the look. Perhaps most extraordinary, these superb actors
received direction with enough objectivity to improve a character's
portrayal, rather than destroying it.
No wonder the Oscar
nominees are so greatly admired. Yet only a tiny minority of them have
gone all the way, changing their CHAKRAS. This takes the greatest
talent, and a rare kind of courage.
What it is like to shift that
deep, playing a part? Nothing within you feels the same. Imagine a
length of beige cloth that you are dying green. Most people would be
satisfied with a cloth that looks green. But you will not be satisfied
with some simple dunk in the vat. You find a way to do the ultimate
transformation. Consequently, the cloth changes so completely that if
you held the most powerful microscope in the world up that cloth, the
most minute fibers would glow bright green.
Well, okay, here is
something easier to imagine: What happens when an aura reader like me
turns movie critic? I can read the deepest possible shifts within an
actor. And that is just what I do in this article, with an in-depth
critique of Peter O'Toole's performance in Venus. (If you would like to
receive links to the photos I used in this article, email me. You will
find an address at my website.)
Since I can read auras from
regular photographs (and could teach you to do the same, incidentally),
it is easy to compare the aura of an actor just being himself to his
still shot from the movie, where he plays his character. Did I see this
movie? No. I just know it is about his tentative courtship with his
best friends' great niece. And O'Toole's performance as Laurence of
Arabia was seared into my adolescent brain. But putting all that aside
and reading from photos, I asked this question: Who could transform all
the way? Here is what I found about Peter in this movie:
chakra—How his personality projects when he enters a room As himself:
Empathic to the core, and powerful at broadcasting his emotion of the
moment, in the photo I am reading Peter is tender and sweet. One
constant when just being himself: The guy could not be any more gay and
still be walking around in a male body. In the movie: This is an
entirely different way of being tender and sweet. Peter's character is
in love, with a combination of grandfatherly love and young man
romanticism, all of it very heterosexual. Need I say that this
represents a rather significant change of aura?
chakra—What would he be like as a lover? As himself: He is hugely sexy,
passionate and generous. And did I mention gay? In the movie: Sexually,
Peter is enveloping the other character with such intensity, it is as
though they had just been honeymooning for a week. When two people make
love, whatever their marital status or sexual orientation, their auras
join together closely for three days. This extraordinary actor has done
something very difficult here, and clearly a complete change of aura.
plexus chakra—Handling power, what is his pattern at the time of this
photo? As himself: To get his way in a conflict, this man specializes
in emotional power. Using power is no priority, however. And he is
conflict averse. In the movie: Power is a strong projection from this
character's aura. He carries a history of being tough and effective.
Here, this is combined with a protective, again, grandfatherly (and
distinctly hetero) kind of affection. Score another complete change of
chakra—How does he handle emotions? As himself: This is Peter O'Toole's
art form, exploring the full range of human emotion. Discovering and
deeply feeling an emotion is, for him, the equivalent of eating Godiva
chocolates. In the movie: Oh, he is soooo consumed by tenderness! And
love is making him feel about 35 years younger. And it's a complete
change of aura!
chakra—Truthfulness? Talent? What shows here? As himself: Think
lightning bolts held in a basket. The man can send out any emotion at
will, send electricity into the room, and transform his audience. For
decades he has been at peace with this extraordinary ability. No, this
is not ego attached for him at this point, no more than having ears or
toenails. In the movie: This is a very private man, usually someone who
hides his own feelings, but in the relationship to his love interest in
this film, Peter's character is opening up his soul as never before.
Clearly, for use, this can be a big hankie movie. And for O'Toole, it
counts as a complete change of aura.
chakra—How does he connect to God? As himself: What a glorious,
long-standing connection. And Peter connects more to the energy of
Goddess than most people you will ever meet, in person or on screen,
including folks walking around in female bodies. In the movie: He has a
modest, Christian-oriented, connection to God. The connection is tinged
with a bit of guilt. Another complete change of aura is scored here.
expression chakra—Deep down, how does this person feel as a human
being? As himself: This chakra is one of the great triumphs of Peter
O'Toole's aura. He has struggled to accept himself, to be himself
unapologetically. One reason this is so significant relates to his
exceptionally high degree of empathic ability. Peter may not have had a
teacher about how to balance empathy with full self-awareness (the
stuff that I teach students), but he has found his own way, so he has
learned to be very stable inwardly, mastering his ability to travel in
and out of being other people with his consciousness, but choosing to
mostly be himself. In the movie: The character's soul expression is
blooming like a winter crocus. This portrayal brings hope to all of us
who still are not in touch with living that powerfully. Not a change of
aura exactly, this is a different version of something that O'Toole has
achieved in his personal evolution this lifetime. It is as if he just
arranged and painted a gorgeous still life of fruit, based on what he
learned—not just as a painter—but after decades of savoring every bite
of those grapes, apples and strawberries.
This is an extraordinary performance. Not only has Peter changed every
one of his chakras, but that tinge of guilt at his third eye adds
believability to a bittersweet love story. As an aura reader, and avid
movie watcher, I am so excited to see a movie portray nuances of
self-actualization instead of the more common nuances of fear and pain.
