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.

Truth Blue : Aura Colour

This is an old piece or writing I did many years ago. I’ve since incorporated Truth Blue into the Aura Card named “Expression Blue”, because they are different facets of the same aura frequency. This colour is all about finding balance in the throat chakra. Not enough truth/expression blue, and you won’t have an opinion. Or you have one but you won’t express it. Too much and everyone can hear you opinion coming from a mile off because you shout it from the rooftops all day and night! This is when Truth/Expression Blue slides into Zealous Blue. We can of course, swing between the two extremes, but hopefully we eventually find the middle ground.


Truth blue is an electric blue with a faint turquoise tint, a little like the blue in this section of aura sketch. With psychic vision it shimmers and sparkles with vibrancy, like sunlight sparkling on the surface of a blue lake. cropped-zanandra-30th-nov-2010.jpg


This one one of the first colours I conceived and whilst I no longer use this specific colour during readings, the philosophy it taught me is still very present in my personal and professional life. Truth Blue’s core wisdom is ‘be true to yourself and honour everybody else’s right to do the same’. Truth Blue teaches us know our own personal truth and be true to it without violating the right of others to be true to themselves in turn.

Each person’s personal truth is a conglomerate of their unique, individual values, beliefs, ideas, ideals, attitudes and ethics. In discovering your own personal truth, you are discovering Who You Are. You might realise on this journey of self-discovery that your personal truth is different from your family and friend’s personal truths. Your personal truth might even be different from the views held by society around you, your spiritual mentors and other role-models in your life. These external influences are all very powerful and we can easily lose touch with our true inner values if we don’t take the time to touch base with ourselves. (See Sanctuary Green)

You are always changing and redefining your personal identity. In deciding who you choose to be as an individual, you may ocasionally need to release old opinions, values and ideas because they no longer fit you anymore. Perhaps they were never really suited to you in the first place. As you establish your personal truth, you are making decisions about what works for you and what doesn’t work for you. This is an on-going process. Let me give you an example of personal truth in action:

One day you decide you really, really don’t like eating tomatoes. You’ve only been eating them because Grandma says they’re good for you. You’ve had enough. You hate the taste, they’ve been giving you wind for years and they really aren’t right for you. It would be rather ridiculous at this stage to say that Grandma was wrong about tomatoes because tomatoes are really bad and no-one should ever eat them. After all, Grandma thrives on them and has lived happily with tomatoes in and on everything she eats, into robust old age. Tomato ice-cream is a strange concept, but each to their own.

If you force yourself to continue eating tomatoes after you’ve had the ‘I hate tomatoes’ epiphany, you’re violating your own personal truth. If grandma forces you to keep eating tomatoes after your epiphany, she’s violating your personal truth. If you try to stop grandma eating tomatoes just because you don’t like them, you’re violating her personal truth. If you try to stop everyone from ever eating tomatoes again, it really is time to settle down and embrace a ‘live and let live’ philosophy.

‘Tomatoes are good for you’ is simply grandma’s personal truth, not yours. That doesn’t mean that one of you is right and one of you is wrong; you are just different people with different personal truths (and very different digestive systems in spite of the genetic connection!). The appropriate response is to say ‘tomatoes are good for some people but not for me’ and let everyone else get on with working it out for themselves rather than trying to rescue everyone from the perils of tomato-eating and waging a campaign against tomato growers across the country.

Like Wisdom Blue, Truth Blue encourages us to walk our talk and be authentic. Be Real. Be Yourself. Its important to know yourself and express or share your truth without forcing it on others or hiding away for fear of being judged. Truth Blue is a creative expression colour because creative expression is a healthy way to discover, explore and express your personal truth.

If this colour has come up for you, it’s either reflecting your self-discovery journey or prompting you to begin. Can you think for yourself, allow yourself to be different and celebrate the right of others to do the same? Who are you? What interests, opinions, thoughts and ideas do you have? How are they different from the people around you? How could you further explore, express and share your authentic self with the world around you?

Talking with Camels

Omi camel1Thank you to mum for this old photo. This has been up on mum’s photo board for as long as I can remember. It’s one of my favourites. I’m not sure how old I am here. 7 or 8 years old perhaps? I’m guessing these are Hal’s camels and the one I’m with is probably Sam. I love camels.

The funny thing is, I found this photograph quite by accident yesterday, after it went missing for over a year, on exactly the same day camel spirit medicine helped me during a healing with a client. I was shown a blockage in her throat chakra and ‘went in’ to it. ‘Going in’ means diving, melting, falling into this part of the energy field with my mind, my focus, my awareness…. while also sliding my energy hand into the chakra so I can feel around.
