For a while he just stood there, munching pear, feeling torn. One direction didn’t seem any more promising than the other. Perhaps it was the stress of indecision, but his stomach was starting to feel quite tight. He tucked the rest of his pear away with a grumble and rubbed his belly but if anything, the tight feeling got worse, rather than better. By golly, he thought, that’s a strange sensation. It really did feel as something was pulling on his stomach. The pulling sensation seemed to be drawing him to the left.
When I’m reading the aura, I generally find spirit guide energy above the client’s head. Assigning a specific area of the aura to ‘the colours of spirit guides’ is helpful because then I can discern spirit energy from the energy of any incarnated beings the client might be interacting with. Using the area above the head as the spirit guide area makes sense because this is the area governed by the crown chakra, our spiritual chakra.
I tend to see spirit guides as balls of coloured light, with the colour, positioning and size of the ball giving me information about the guide’s personality and purpose. These meanings are my own personal system, and certainly not a rule of thumb- everyone perceives energy in their own unique way. I like the ball of light idea because to me, spirit is energy…the image of a guide as a character or human is secondary to the idea of spirit being an energy field.
Larger balls generally represent ‘older’ or wiser spirit guides. White balls are ‘master’ guides- guides with a very high frequency. When a ball of light is touching on, or close to the body, it means the guide and human have a very good working relationship and have probably been together for a long time.
Once upon a time there was a sad King, sitting on a very cold and uncomfortable throne, in a dark chamber closed off from the light. He was all alone. Someone had boarded up the windows and taken his cushions away. He moped. The King’s chamber was dusty and musty and there was no fire lit in the hearth. Outside her could hear the sound of crowds cheering and he knew the ambassador had them in the palm of his hand, supposedly in the Kings name, whilst the King sat locked away in this forgotten room.
When I sketch the aura, I use a full-body sketching format, rather than just the head and shoulders. This is a bit like pulling a seven card tarot layout, where each position in the layout has a different meaning, rather than choosing just one card and having no layout pattern at all. By using different body areas to represent different parts of a person’s life, I can cross-reference colours with positions for greater accuracy, just as the tarot reader cross-references tarot cards with positions in the tarot spread.
I was talking to a friend today about her desire to become a spiritual healer. She was having trouble finding a teacher in her part of the world that she felt comfortable with, so I reminded her of the value of ‘inner teachers’; spirit guides and invisible friends who take us under their wing and guide our training. It is useful as a spiritual student to have helpers in both our inner and outer worlds.
During the launch of my new book Aura Colour Therapy earlier today, I did a few sample readings to demonstrate how the Aura Cards can be used for counselling and personal development. In my first reading, we all had to laugh when three of the first four colours were all orange. This lady was most definitely an ‘orange’ lady in personality: vivacious, warm and very much an individual.
