Nature Magic and Gaian Attunements

Today is the one year anniversary of the first time we arrived here on our block of land in Northern NSW and I thought I’d mark the occasion with a blog.

It’s been an intense week! My sister and daughter invited me in via video link to hang with them during their blood moon ceremony they were doing last week. This is the second time now, that we’ve come together to do some family healing magic. The first time was on the 22nd of the 3rd, 2017. At the time, my husband and I were on the east coast searching for a new place to live. There was flooding everywhere and we got bogged! My husband kindly played the hero and I left him with the muddy saga while I caught the train to Brisbane and spent an evening doing magic with my sister and daughter. The date worked out nicely, seeing as we were keen to take advantage of the fact that there was some good number magic happening with our ages: 44, 33 and 22. I’m an 11, by the way, in numerology!

Compassion Orange

IMG_6268This is an excerpt from my book Aura Colour Therapy, about an aura colour I call Compassion Orange. For anyone who has studied iridology, this auric pattern is equivalent to the Ring or Harmony or Lymphatic Rosary pattern in the iris.

This is a pale fluorescent apricot orange, like sunset reflected on soft fluffy clouds, or water. ‘Gentle’ is the word that most readily comes to mind when I think of this colour. Compassion Orange makes your heart feel expanded and all-encompassing. The feeling you get when your ‘heart goes out’ to another, is a typical Compassion Orange feeling. Sometimes this can be joyful because it keeps us connected with others, but quite often, it can cause an ache or pang in the heart.

Compassion Orange can reflect a compassionate nature or recent growth in a person’s capacity for compassion. Compassion Orange types are instinctive healers, often happiest when helping others or doing what they can to help make the world a better place for everyone to live in. Their concern for the world around them is on par with those who wear heart-based colours such as Wholehearted Pink and Generosity Green. For the most part, their compassion arises from a strong empathetic ability; they can easily imagine how it might feel to walk in the shoes of another person. Continue reading “Compassion Orange”

The aura – a inner light shining through or a cloak of colours?

Is your aura made from the light that shines out from within you, or is it more like a cloak of many colours? The answer is: both! The aura is made up of many colours and layers of colours from different parts of who you are, the experiences you are having, and the energies you are interacting with.

 

Every Aura is Different

 

Aura colours, like people, come in many shapes and sizes.

 

Your aura is never just one colour: you are far more complex and multi-faceted than that. Nor is your aura static, like a still photograph of a single moment in time, because you are always changing and growing, always affecting and being affected by, the world around you.

 

There are as many different kinds of auras as there are people, and no two auras are exactly the same.

Expression Blue (Aura Colour)

An excerpt from Aura Colour Therapy, written by Omanisa

 

Expression Blue has depth and sparkle, like an azure blue sky reflected on the surface of a lake, with little glints of white sparkles and streaks, where sunlight strikes the water. On a feeling level, it feels energetic and lively, like a passionate flow of conversation, with animated hand and body movements being used to convey meaning. This colour is particularly therapeutic for anyone wearing grey colours in or around the Throat Chakra.

Often worn by writers, artists, vocalists, journalists, public speakers and people working in the communication industry, Expression Blue gives us a knack for composing with words and communicating with others. Besides representing a personality type, Expression Blue can appear in the aura when we are going through a temporary phase of heightened creative self-expression.

This colour liberates us by giving us a voice. Our voice is our personal truth; our way of being in the world, expressing our opinions and contributing to a global discussion. Our personal truth is a conglomerate of our values, beliefs, ideas, ideals, attitudes and ethics. When we know our personal truth, we know who we are and who we are not; we know what we stand for and what is important to us. The phrase ‘being true to ourselves’ means living according to our personal truth

Before we can express our personal truth, we need to know what it is. Expression Blue helps us slow down and hear our inner voice. Often, we use creativity as a means to access this inner wisdom. If we cut off from our creativity and our inner voice for too long, we loose touch with our true selves. Sometimes we become too busy and forget to be still enough to hear the creative voice that wants to express through us. This can also happen when we use all our energy being creative for others instead of for ourselves. Creative people need to ensure they are making time for creative reconnection with themselves. They must take care that the pressure to perform on a creative level does not destroy their love for creating. The creative process is highly therapeutic and just as important as the creative end product. Creative expression sets the inner child free, bringing us a joy that nourishes the soul. Expression Blue can be evidence of creative skills being used well, but it can just as easily be a timely reminder to reconnect with our inner muse.

This colour challenges us to speak our truth without violating the right of others to do the same. When Expression Blue is well balanced within us, we celebrate differences between people rather than feeling threatened by them. Everybody has their own personal truth and each person’s truth is true for them, even if it is not true for someone else. It is important to know ourselves and share our truth via self-expression without hiding away for fear of being judged. Creative expression is a healthy way to discover, explore and express our personal truth without forcing it on others.
Our personal truth may differ from that of family members and friends or the society we live in. When people around us hold vastly different views from our own, it can be difficult to maintain loyalty to our own truth. Other people may judge us or put pressure on us to conform to their views. We can then become lost, confused and uncertain about who we really are, especially if our personal truth was not that strong and clear to begin with, or we tend to have trouble maintaining personal boundaries.
When people feel threatened by differences of opinion and belief, they can become judgemental and argumentative. They say ‘my truth is right, yours is wrong’. Some people go out of their way to avoid contact with people who have a truth different from their own, almost as though they are afraid their own personal truth will be contaminated. Some parents take this approach with their children, carefully shielding them from any unwanted influences.
Exposure to different perspectives, however, helps us grow. In deciding who we choose to be as individuals, we occasionally need to release old opinions and values because they no longer fit us. Perhaps they never really suited us in the first place. Part of developing our personal truth involves consciously deciding whether to keep or discard conditioning from childhood, family and society. As we establish our personal truth, we make decisions about what works for us and what does not. This is an ongoing process.
People who wear too much Expression Blue can become unbalanced and tip over into Zealous Blue, or they may become a little obsessed with telling the truth at all costs. These people self-disclose information that other people really do not need to hear, often to their own detriment and the dismay of others around them. Shaman Blue is an excellent therapeutic colour for excessive or inappropriate honesty.

Ambition Orange/Red

From my book, Aura Colour Therapy:

This vibrant, hot aura colour can vary in shade from red-orange to orange-red. Small quantities of red-tinged Ambition Orange can give us the drive and single minded determination to accomplish incredible feats, overcome great odds and transform tragedy into triumph. We all need a warm fire in the belly when going after goals, but Ambition Orange can get a little too hot, making us feverish with the desire to possess something or someone.

Obsession can make us pushy, giving us tunnel vision and warping our values. We may know what we want, but we can’t always have it. Sometimes we need to compose ourselves gracefully and accept the need to let go and move in a different direction. Have a good think about what you would really be prepared to give up in order to acquire your desires. Not all prices are worth paying. Are you setting your sights too intently on one goal without keeping balance and sanity in your life?

Like a burning hot coal, Ambition Orange can burn emptiness into the aura, giving us an insatiable hunger. These auric black holes are childhood wounds that constantly consume energy without ever becoming satisfied. I sometimes call them ‘black hole drivers’ because they shape our behaviour, subconsciously driving us to seek outside ourselves for whatever it was we didn’t get in childhood. And like black holes, no matter how much we fill them, they stay hungry.

For example, you might constantly strive for success because you never received praise from one or both parents during childhood. This initial lack inspires you to attain great heights you might not otherwise have aimed for and this is wonderful, so long as you are not selling your soul in the process. A really deep wound will drive you to constantly achieve more and more, but you will never truly feel successful and you may even sabotage yourself because you don’t really believe in yourself.

Ambition Orange can also represent addictive biochemical and neurological states stimulated by external substances, people and situations. People, praise, sex, jobs, drugs, food, games, money, success and status are all examples of externally sourced keys we use to unlock or access our favourite internal states. We need to learn how to access these feel-good internal states of mind naturally, without becoming dependent upon ever greater quantities of external stimuli.

What it is you are being hungry, intense, possessive or obsessive about? What need are you trying to get met? Can you find a healthier way to meet this need? The deeper essence of whatever it is you are chasing out there in the world, is something you already have within you and around you, so ‘cool it’. Relax and take time to smell the roses. Life is right here, right now, just waiting for you to realise it has been with you all along, waiting for your engagement and offering you simple treasures with genuine depth of value.

Using creative visualisation, imagine finding a safe way to lift some of those hot coals out of your inner fire and cool them off in the water. Let them melt away. Keep doing this until your inner fire calms down! Cooling colours like Patience Green, Generosity Green, Authenticity Green, Healing Green, Watchful Blue, Freedom Blue and Mother Blue can be very soothing for excess fire. You can heal empty black holes with colours like Abundance Green, Soul Retrieval Blue, Clarity Yellow, Happiness Yellow, Gold and Silver. Ambition Orange itself is generally too strong to use therapeutically. If you want to be decisive and active, use Strength Red. If you want to recover your passion, use Creative Red. If you want to set and achieve goals, work with Manifestation Orange.

 

Aura Colours for healing

An excerpt for my book Aura Colour Therapy, affectionately known by clients and students as ‘the Big Book’:

I love using aura colours to help myself heal. If I realise I am being overly cautious and fearful about stepping forwards, I consider which colours reflect this state, such as Conservative Brown and Anxiety Yellow. Thinking about these colours gives me insight into my own attitudes and behaviours and how they may have developed. From here, I can make quality decisions about how I would rather be feeling and behaving and select colours to meditate upon that will invoke or facilitate this preferred state, such as Playful Orange and Happiness Yellow.

When I use aura colours during consultations with clients, not only do they give me insights into the client, they also give me ideas for healing approaches we could take. While looking at the overall layout of colours and discussing the issues these colours bring up, the client and I can create an individually tailored healing plan with colour therapy woven throughout.

During an aura reading, my client Celeste told me that she was concerned about the presence of Detachment Blue in her Heart Chakra. This colour can make us emotionally cold towards others and my client recognised this as the underlying cause for most of the issues she was struggling with. This colour might shut the heart down, but in doing so, it also protects the heart. We needed to understand why Celeste felt the need to protect her heart, and who or what she needed to protect it from. The surrounding colours gave us clues, as well as providing ideas for treatment approaches.

With Animal Spirit Brown also appearing in Celeste’s layout, I decided to take her on a guided meditation and introduce her to her animal spirit guide. People wearing Detachment Blue over the heart often have a wounded inner child with trust issues. Wounded inner children usually don’t like people, but they love and trust animals. Her aura also featured Soul Retrieval Blue, so with her animal as the guide, we used creative visualisation to travel into the past and discover when she first shut down her heart and why. This journey included rewriting a traumatic past event and reclaiming her capacity to trust.

Once we had dealt with the underlying issues and repaired the aura, we used creative visualisation and colour breathing to reduce the excess quantity of Detachment Blue in the aura and replace it with Wholehearted Pink and Generosity Green.

Guidelines for a good aura reading

I’m currently editing the ‘big book’, Aura Colour Therapy, and thought I’d share this page, posted below. Also, I’ve decided to offer two versions of the Aura Sketch and Reading, so keep your eyes open for a blog about that… I’ll make sure I let everyone know when I update the Aura Sketching page, to keep you in the loop!


A good reading should validate and confirm what you already know deep inside. This is especially relevant if you know yourself well and you are quite spiritually aware. Pay particular attention to any information that is repeated and treat prediction in a light-hearted manner because predictions don’t always come true. If you are having trouble relating to the reading, it sometimes helps to talk it through with a close and trusted friend.

If part of the reading advises you to do something you are already doing, think of this as praise from Spirit and confirmation you are on the right track. You are so well tuned in to your higher guidance that you have already heard the spiritual messages you need to hear and you are actively applying them in your life. Keep it up! If you aren’t doing what is advised and the advice resonates with you, get started on heeding that advice!

If part of the reading suggests you have positive qualities but you disagree, it might help to get a second opinion from a friend. Self-esteem issues can blind us to our own positive qualities but a good friend should be able to help you see them clearly. If your friend agrees that you don’t have these positive traits or attitudes, the reading may be advising you to develop them. It can help to focus on breathing this colour into your body while you imagine embodying the positive personality traits associated with the colour.

If part of the reading suggests you have negative feelings or personality traits you cannot relate to, a friend might be able to see what you cannot, or you could try changing the wording. For example, the reading might say you are angry but you can’t relate because you don’t feel angry, you feel frustrated. To me, frustration is a form of anger! Rather than getting stuck on specific words, try using other words that have a similar meaning and see if you can relate. If it still isn’t making sense, ask yourself if the colour in question represents a past personality trait or emotion. If so, this state could soon be triggered back to the surface by a coming challenge. This is an opportunity for you to heal and resolve the issue a little more deeply than you may have already done.

Lastly, keep in mind that the colours in your aura are affected by life situations and people around you, so some of your aura colours can represent other people in your life. This is particularly relevant with colours found in the Heart Chakra position. Finding other people’s colours in your aura can also be an issue if you have become over-involved in another person’s life, or when someone is having a big influence on you. For example, I often find that the aura sketches of over-involved mothers feature more colours from their children’s auras than they do from their own

Use a combination of intuition and logic to decide how each reading applies to you and your life. If there is anything that doesn’t make sense, place it aside and focus instead of what is useful from the reading. Sometimes the bits that don’t make sense now will make more sense later on. For this reason, it can be a good idea to record each reading.

 

 

The Heart Chakra – Green

IMG_1496This weeks feature chakra in my clinic is the Heart Chakra. There are two colours frequently associated with the Heart Chakra: Green and Pink. This week, we will be exploring the Green ray or aura frequency. You can learn more about the aura and different aura colours here.

In my Aura Colour system, I have many different shades of green, ranging from pale greens to dark greens, from yellow-greens to blue-greens, from olive greens to eucalypt greens.

My spirit guides began teaching me how to read the aura in the mid 1990’s after attending a Reiki course. In 1998 I began providing clients with aura sketches and readings and my chalk box eventually expanded to include over 100 different aura colours.

Years later, I used these chalks to create the Aura Cards I now use as my primary healing and reading method in clinic.

About the Aura Cards

Soul Loss, Retrieval, Soul Return : Aura Card Demo

“Soul Retrieval” is the reclaiming of stolen/forgotten/repressed energies or parts of ourselves that were lost during, or as a result of, past trauma (Soul Loss). Soul Retrieval is like marching into your past, standing up to your demons and saying “I’ll have that part of myself back, thank you very much!”

“Soul Return” is the process of giving back crappy stuff that has been projected onto you, or that you have taken onto yourself, during past trauma. In other words, it’s about giving back stuff that isn’t yours, and never was. There is absolutely no point carrying and attempting to own or process ‘stuff’ that isn’t yours; it’s always best to give it back and let the original owner take care of it.
