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.
