"When we exercise moral judgment, we believe we are making a conscious, rational decision, but this research shows that we are subconsciously influenced by how clean or 'pure' we feel," said lead researcher of the new study Simone Schnall, a psychologist at the University of Plymouth in England. "Take for example the situation of a jury member or voting in an election - if the jury member had washed their hands prior to delivering their verdict, they may judge the crime less harshly."
I have created a short audio course on how to read energy using a pendulum. This is a quick and easy way to read chakras either in person or via distance. You do not need to be a psychic to be able to do this. I used this method to read the energy of the presidential candidates - once you learn this method, you can read anyone's energy quite easily with a little practice. I will confess that I use this method to check the energy of guys I am interested in dating - it can be extremely helpful in avoiding the bad ones. :-)
Since I was critical of Barack Obama's energy in my previous post, I thought it would be good to take a look at John McCain's energy. Now, let me preface this by saying that I have been a Democrat for a long time, and I have not been a fan of the recent Republican administration.
So what I actually got when I read John McCain's energy surprised me. In fact (at the time of this reading), John McCain has the best energy out of all three candidates (versus Obama and Clinton). His chakras are mostly open and healthy. His energy is even and stable, across the board. And what surprised me the most was to see John McCain's heart chakra wide open and brimming with positive energy.
Pardon me while I get political here again, but I'm finding the Democratic race to be fascinating on the energetic perspective.
Obama lost last night to Clinton in the Pennsylvania primary. Considering that he was the "front runner," he had oodles of money to spend, and the math will make it hard for Hillary to beat him, why didn't he easily take Pennsylvania?
Some vocal, angry Obama fans have put this down to a single, ugly word: racism. A post on Daily Kos about Obama's loss was filled with insulting, negative comments about people who voted for Clinton. Besides being "racist," these voters were labeled as uneducated, ignorant, and buying into the mainstream media (even though Obama has actually gotten more favorable press all along, except for the past few weeks due to his own screw-ups).
