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

Boundaries Aura Spray

img_1012I recently created a special blend for the students in the last workshop I ran, on Boundaries, and I promised them I’d write something for them about the ingredients, so here it is!

Blessings!

Boundaries Blue

boundaries-blueBoundaries Blue is the colour I find in people’s auras when their boundaries are strong and healthy. This colour provides a smooth edge to the aura that doesn’t allow things, people or situations in the world around us to ‘hook in’ to our aura.

Using the Boundaries Blue aura colour essence helps us to keep our personal space clear and effectively assert (communicate) our boundaries to others so they know where they stand with us.

This colour gives us a ‘water off a ducks back’ approach to what might normally ruffle our feathers!


Fringed Violetcapture2

I can’t work out where my fringed violet photos are, so I’m showing you some images from a fantastic local resource I often use to help me identify flowers. Please click here to access.

If you brush up against a fringed violet accidentally and then look away for a few second, when you bring your attention back to the flower you may be hard-pressed to find it again. A disturbed fringe violet, with its sensitive fringe feeling into the world around it, will close itself up quite quickly, and pretend to be one of the surrounding grasses. This remedy is excellent for helping your boundaries learn discernment and flexibility, so we know when (and how much) to be open or closed, in each unique situation. I do think there is an element of tie-cutting this flower provides as well: while three petals are fringed, the other three are compact and long, like the swords we might use to cut the ties that bind us.


Desert Rose

2012-06-07 13.42.42.jpgDesert Rose is a centralian flower essence. She says:

I’m a lot tougher than I look, and I can protect you from the demands that other place on you and the demands you place on yourself. Let go of these silly ideas that you are only here to serve others. Reconnect with yourself. Think of yourself as a sacred site and declare your territory sacrosanct. Have self respect and self love. Care for yourself. Care for your body.


Phaleria

phalaria image_0001Phaleria is an amazing Arnhem land flower. I’ve adding this to the blend because having healthy boundaries is also about knowing when to shed your old skin because you’ve outgrown it. Comfort zones can lead to stagnation after all!

Phaleria reminds us we have choices, and we aren’t trapped. It also helps us emerge from our comfort zones. Like a caterpillar coming out of a cocoon, we often discover we have hidden wings that give us freedom when we overcome old limiting thoughts, beliefs and identities.


Black Kyanite

kyaniteBlack Kyanite is protective for the aura and helps to repair rips, holes and tears in the fabric of our aura boundaries. It also helps us to be assertive and to speak our truth. Within the aura itself, it reconnects areas that may have become disconnected by unhealthy defensive responses that armour and harden the aura and it helps dissolve hard walls inside our hearts that occur when we stop listening to our inner voice and our feelings. Black kyanite erects protective shields over the ear chakras that filter out negative energy and dampen the effects of auditory over-stimulation.


Kunzite

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKunzite is a protective crystal. It provides protection by raising our frequency, dispelling negativity and shielding our aura from unwanted energies. It reminds us to align ourselves with what nourishes us, and to let go of the rest.

 

 

Four-Directions Medicine-Wheel Spell

screen-shot-2016-09-29-at-12-34-37-amI’m having a happy moment..

…not just because my daughter is standing beside me quoting Missy Higgins and linking it in with her own inspired writing and a discussion that has been unfolding between us about the Idealistic Pink aura colour….

…not just because we all went to see the Embrace documentary created by Taryn and it makes my heart so happy to see and hear beautiful women talking about liberating themselves from the trappings of cultural ‘rules’ about beauty and image…

…I’m happy because I’ve created the third part of my four-direction medicine-wheel spell, under the guidance of my new spirit guide, a herbal wiccan teacher.

Here’s a little preview:

A Medicine Wheel Spell : Boundary Strengthening for Empaths

In your magic spell kit you should have an Aura Spray and a Medicine Bundle designed to help empaths (clairsentients) clear their space and restore and strengthen their boundaries.

Your aura is you, in energy form. The aura of an empath has fuzzy or blurry boundary edges, making it less clearly defined where they end and they rest of the world begins. Their aura can easily flow into and merge with (empathise with) the world around them. They are often very caring people who make excellent healers and counselors. The empathic aura instinctively empathises with the pain of others and transmutes or releases it on the other person’s behalf.

When an empath becomes unbalanced, the aura boundaries that usually define and protect them from the outer world (however vaguely!) collapse altogether and the outside world comes flooding in. They lose their sense of self and their personal space, and it can feel as though everything is in their face and getting under their skin. They become infected by the emotions and stresses of others and start to feel responsible for everything and everyone. This congests and stresses their aura, resulting in physical illness and a loss of emotional stability and calm.

This spell is a four-directions medicine-wheel spell, taught to Omanisa by one of her spirit guides and designed for those living in the southern hemisphere. It consists of four ceremonies supported by an aura spray containing colour, gem and flower essences that clear the aura and strengthen boundaries. The spell is most powerful when it can be done within a 24-hour period, but for those with busy lives it’s fine to stretch the ceremonies out over a period of weeks or months.

Each ceremony requires at least 30 minutes of your time. The first ceremony is done when the sun sets. The second is done at night-time before bed. The third is done with the dawning of the sun. The fourth at midday. Before doing each ceremony, read through it to familiarize yourself with both the process and the tools that will be needed.

Aesthetic Green

Screenshot 2015-10-06 15.12.14This cool and refreshing pale mint-green can vary in shade, sometimes being a true-green, other times taking on more of a blue-green aqua or turquoise tint. Generally a fairly composed colour, Aesthetic Green often forms part of the auric boundary, functioning as a shield that can expand or thicken outward. It can also ‘lock in’ and become rigid when unhealthy.

Aesthetic Green helps the wearer assume a cool, reserved demeanour, thereby enabling psychological and emotional privacy. On the other hand, Aesthetic Green facilitates honesty and the clear psychic broadcast of personal boundaries so that other people are under no illusion as to where they stand when they come into contact with you. Some people wearing this colour are learning how to emanate or radiate specific attitudes or moods from their aura in order to influence others. Continue reading

Psychic self-protection and boundaries

How do I care for my psychic space, in terms of keeping it clear and clean and protected from low frequency energy in the world around me? And why won’t you ever hear me using the term psychic attack?

I’ll answer the last question first….

Just the phrase itself, “psychic attack” will light up areas of your brain to do with feeling threatened, and change your behaviour in ways that emphasise your perception of feeling separate from others in negative ways. Just reading the word ‘attack’ will press your limbic buttons, shut down the parts of your brain that help you control anger and fear (the anterior cingulate and striatum) and put your amygdala on the alert, generating a fight or flight response that spreads throughout your entire body.

What’s wrong with this? Well, if there is any actual attack, I’d say this it is. We attack and corrode our own health on all levels when we become stressed in this manner, especially when the stress is chronic and habitual, which definitely happens with people who tend to be on the alert for psychic attack.

If you aren’t much interested in neuroscience, let me explain the same phenomenon from my perspective as an aura reader and healer. As soon as you decide that your existing boundaries aren’t strong enough to protect you from the ill-wishing and psychic negativity of a persecutor, you give your power away and your auric frequency drops. Whether the psychic attack is real or not, the end outcome is the same, because when your frequency drops, your energy levels drop, your mental clarity disappears, your thinking becomes negative, your emotions become fragile and/or erratic, and you may feel unwell. If you were ever going to vulnerable to the negative energy of another person or situation, it’s when your frequency drops, but really, you are doing their job for them by poisoning yourself with negative thoughts, beliefs and stories.

Healing Business Interview with Om

photo-36With all these glorious interviews I’ve been doing for other practitioners, it’s lovely to find the Universe pulling strings and arranging a surprise for me in return! This is an interview Tammy Hatherill did with me earlier this year. It’s mostly about the art of running a successful healing business (without burning out!):

Being carried by the partridge

I had a new animal spirit guide working with me yesterday in the healing room… a partridge! She was so beautiful! She helped restructure the energy lines in my client’s feet chakras and the lower legs, then she stimulated the lung/heart chakra points on the feet and encouraged my client to release from her lungs ‘all that she was carrying on behalf of others’.

Excessive empathy

In psychic terms, empathy is referred to as clairsentience, the ability to sense how another person is feeling. Empaths (also referred at as clairsentients) tends to have blurry boundary edges, or a looser sense of self in comparison to the average person. On the plus side, this gives them a stronger ability to feel a sense of oneness with all of life, leading to beautiful spiritual experiences based on a skill called ‘merging’. Being a natural empath myself, I can describe what merging feels like to me, but keep in mind we are all different and the experience is unique to all empaths.

Conducting Healing rather than Channelling Healing

In praise of conductors

I was watching a student doing a healing the other day when I suddenly noticed her personal energy reserves were being accessed.

It only lasted for a moment and then stopped, but it alarmed me because this is something I don’t want my students to do; drawing from your own field to heal others can be draining and it’s entirely unnecessary when we can access unlimited sources (sources that are like never-ending packets of tim-tams!). This forced me to take a closer look at her process so I could give her the feedback she would need to ensure she didn’t become drained.

Understanding Aura Colours – BOUNDARIES BLUE

Boundaries Blue provides the aura with a firm, smooth surface that cannot be ‘hooked into’ by threads or protrusions sent out from other auric fields. When the defining line between ourselves and others is clear, we can ‘see people coming a mile off’, almost as though looking out from a higher vantage point. Visually, Boundaries Blue is smooth and tends to shape itself into walls, bubbles and shield-like shapes around the aura.
