Red Colours in your Aura

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPerceiving aura colours with psychic perception is a inner experience, like seeing an image in your mind, or feelings in your body. When I ‘see’ a red frequency like Strength Red I feel strong and powerful in my body, my base chakra tingles, my legs feel strong and I feel warm, energised, relaxed and confident. I might have visual images flash through my mind that accompany these feelings, but even if I don’t, I’m still going to know this is Strength Red, because I recognise the feeling. With empathy (clairsentience) as my primary psychic strength, I ‘see’ aura colours with my feelings and my body.

Strength Red is but one of many red colours I might see/feel while reading and healing the aura, and each different shade tells me a story about how a person feels, how they think, their habitual or current emotional state, their physical health and the things they might be experiencing in their lives. As a healer and spiritual counsellor, I’m teaching my clients how to recognise imbalances in their colours (chakras) and how to restore and maintain balance.

Even without psychic perception, it’s possible to recognise when a particular chakra or aura colour can become unbalanced. (note: I will occasionally refer to red energy as ‘fire energy’ or fire throughout this blog!)

TOO MUCH RED

When there is too much red in the aura, this can be because the base chakra is overdeveloped at the expense of other chakras and ‘hogging all the light’ so to speak. In a way, you could say the person is over-focused on base chakra issues, or base chakra issues are consuming their attention.For example, you might be overly fixated on winning and being competitive at that expensive of other values like friendship, or you might be so concerned about material wealth and image that you are neglecting or betraying other parts of yourself, such as your creativity or spirituality. Fixations of being right or having more and more power, sex, and independence are other examples of red in overdrive. Hyperactivity is another. Treatment can be a combination of learning how to be still and content with what you have (e.g. meditation, minimalism), nourishing and tending to other parts of you (e.g. heart, spirit) and learning how to focus and channel all that fire and passion into constructive projects that enhance your life and the lives of those around you in beautiful ways.

Excess red can also occur when we are having trouble processing, storing, expressing and /or discharging red energy, feelings, thoughts and experiences. For example, you might have trouble coping with anger within yourself and other people, tending to shy away from conflict and honest expression of feelings and opinions. You might have mixed feelings about sex, or perhaps you have trouble owning and expressing your personal power because you don’t feel to attract attention and come across as a threat to others. Just because the red energy isn’t being expressed doesn’t mean it isn’t there. When red energy isn’t expressed, discharged or stored in healthy ways, it can build up, creating tension, frustration and stress. In these instances, the red energy might leak out (e.g. passive anger), explode (sudden temper tantrums), or congeal like clotted blood (resentment). Learning how to be comfortable with fire energy by befriending it instead of making it bad/wrong can help. Martial arts is an example of a therapy that can teach you safe discharge and storage techniques (eh gathering chi and storing it in power centres), while assertiveness and/or conflict resolution classes can teach effective ways to process and express our fire in balanced ways.

NOT ENOUGH RED

If you repress your red energy for long enough, it can diminish. Like a fire that has been smothered, your inner flames die out and you are left with grey ashes. Grey is the main colour I often find in the aura when there is a lack of red. A lack of red energy can also be indicated when there is an excess of cool colours in the aura like greens and blues, but these usually represent a less extreme deadening of our inner fire. Grey in the aura gives us a classic insight into a lack of red energy, and the feeling of being oppressed, depressed, trapped, uninspired, bored, hopeless, powerless, and so on. With no red energy igniting our chakra system from below, like a flame of fuel snaking its way upwards from our base chakra, we lack drive, passion, direction and determination. To reignite our inner fire we may need to grieve our losses, acknowledging where, when and how we gave our power away, and work on reclaiming it. We might need to actively get more physical, heal our sexual selves, learn how to speak up or be real with ourselves about what we really want.

Some people have personalities that are naturally a little quieter and more reserved, and these people may have less fire and passion, less red energy, but this usually only becomes a problem if the imbalance becomes extreme. We all have unique aura’s and personalities after all! Some of us are naturally more red and simply need to find health ways to engage and channel this energy, while others can be perfectly content and balanced with the odd sparkle or flash of red passion and fire, here and there, from time to time. It helps to accept and honour who you are while also looking for opportunities to stretch yourself out of comfort zones and grow, and in the case of red energy, this might simply mean taking the odd risk here and there, being more physically active or asking yourself what you passions are and pursuing them more actively.

 

 

 

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.

Khepri

2015-05-12 17.13.17There are some new sketches in the Spirit Guide Gallery and one of my favourites is Khepri, the Egyptian Sun God. Khepri is an aspect of Ra. He is thought to be one of the oldest Egyptian Gods, and was eventually integrated in with Ra, as the morning sunlight. As you can see, Khepri has an unusual head! This is because he is a scarab beetle, a nice way to say ‘dung beetle’. Scarab beetles were thought to roll the sun across the sky each day, just as dung beetles roll balls of dung across the earth. Here are some photographs showing the progression of the sketch as it developed:

Projecting un-owned material

Here is another question from a student, although I don’t think there is much I can add! She has it all worked out already and has expressed it beautifully:

If I have a ‘conflict’ with s.o. , I believe that the other person just represents a part in myself with which I am in conflict. Because I am not owning it, I project it outside of myself. Now, is it the same with inner parts as well?

Understanding Inner Selves

Student question:

“I am working more and more with inner energies. I am confused here. For example, I had contact with the inner child who was feeling upset because of the belief systems of others. Well, I am pretty sure, these beliefs are in myself too. Is it possible to make contact in a healing with just a belief system? Working with feelings is easier. Often I’m just working with a feeling, but sometimes there seems to be more behind it, like an inner child, but I know when this is the case because ‘she’ appears or I just ‘know’.

With which types of inner energies can you make contact? And how do you recognize them? What is the difference between an inner child and an inner self? Or if I discover hidden potentials….is there some ‘self’ or ‘inner child’ behind it? I had a few occasions now, where I can feel something more than just an emotion, but no inner child appears. Is it possible to ‘feel’ a part of my adult self? Sorry, for being a bit confusing here, but i am lost…:)”

Bridging, or reconnecting, in healing.

In our healing classes this month, the students and I are exploring the concept of bridging. Bridging, or reconnecting, is a common tool we all use as healers, even if we have different names for it.

Bridging is about restoring wholeness by healing divisions or disconnections between one part of the wholeness and another.

As healers, we meditate, bringing opposed energies together in a harmonious way. We bridge gaps, completing energetic circuits and restoring flow. We identify conflicting values/perspectives held by our clients, and we help these aspects of self work together cooperatively rather than fighting against one another. An ‘aspect of self’ might be an intangible value/perspective, but because everything is connected, it also has an embodied or physical expression. To bridge a logic/intuition or mind/heart split, for example, a healer might place one hand on the client’s heart and the other on their head, or one hand on their solar plexus chakra and the other on their heart chakra.

The Cave

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is one of the healing sketches I use in my clinic. Like all the sketches, it has a range of uses, which I am slowly learning over time. I channeled 20 healing sketches through over the space of a week, and now Spirit is showing me how to use them.

Colours, shapes and patterns on their own can have power, because they influence the mindbody via our vision, but sketches can be imbued with intent and vibrational energy. We might not be able to visually see this vibrational energy, but our body can feel it. Think of this vibrational energy as being like a three-dimensional, sacred geometrical or organic pattern. This pattern is absorbed into our aura and from here impacts the mindbody.

Creative projects

This blog is like a dear diary stocktake. I have so many different projects happening at the moment that I feel like I need to list them to remind myself what they all are, just in case one slips down the rabbit hole. I love having lots of different projects happening at the same time because it means I can float at whim between them.

I’m creating an On-line Distance Course for people who want to read and heal the aura. This is level 1 and I have a handful of lovely students supporting me with this, giving me feedback and encouragement. Level 1 has 8 units and I’m currently writing unit 4, but I am lagging. I was hoping to have this everything done before I leave to go overseas, but other projects are snavelling my attention. What I’ve loved about creating this course is that it opened my world up to video as a form of tutorial. One of my students has asked me to create a mail-out version of the course though, because downloading isn’t something she can get her head around. That will be fun! But it could take a while. One of my other students said: “I NEVER realized that the psychic ability is so closely linked to imagination. That was a big revelation for me! Thank you!”

Clearing Mushroom Grey

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere are a range of toxic aura colours that tend to hurt my hands or make me feel sick if I handle them with my hands. When I was younger I had no fear while working in the aura and would ‘boldly go where angels fear to tread’. I’ve learned the hard way to be more wary. On the very odd occasion, a toxic colour lodges in my aura and can be a total hassle to dislodge. This might only happen 1 in 100 times while handling toxic energy (even when wearing psychic protection gloves!), and it can lead to some great personal healing for me in the long run, but I’m getting too old for all this gung-ho business. As my boundaries and self-worth improve, I’m less inclined to put myself in danger while helping others and frankly, I don’t give a shit if wrestling with acquired toxic energy leads to growth, I’m not interested in learning via pain and hardship unless absolutely necessary.
