Happiness Yellow

Screenshot 2015-10-07 10.27.13On a feeling level, Happiness Yellow feels very similar to Warmth Yellow. Visually, Happiness Yellow is a primary yellow, without any orange added. Energetically, it could be considered the basic healthy state for the mental aura. Authentic Happiness Yellow sits in the core of our being with a very stable, solid sureness. When this colour is being used as a front, it sits in the outer aura and can seem too bright and shiny, almost as though over-compensating.

Happiness Yellow reflects our happy moments in life. Everything is shining brightly and flowing along smoothly. We feel good about ourselves and the situation we are in. This happy state is usually temporary and can easily be destabilised by changes in our external circumstances, unless we have learned to cultivate Happiness Yellow as a personality trait. With practice, Happiness Yellow can become a fairly permanent mind-body state that can weather the storms of change and hardship that are a natural and inevitable part of life. Continue reading

The Resourceful Aura

Screenshot 2015-10-02 11.39.54Resourceful is an aura frequency that appears in a range of shades that could be described as golden-yellow, ochre-yellow, golden-brown, yellow-brown. Everyone ‘wears’ this aura colour frequency a little differently. For example, in very grounded people it will seem more brown, in thinkers it will seem more yellow, and with those who are very heart-based, it takes on a warm glow.

If you have been noticing this colour around you lately, or you feel very drawn to it, it might be reflecting a colour frequency in your aura. Some colours are temporary: they reflect current experiences, feelings and thoughts. Others colours are more permanent: they reflect deeper personality traits, habitual emotions, core values and/or ingrained attitudes/beliefs.

Gold – Aura Card/Colour

Gold

Key words, phrases and images:

Majestic, regal, rich, magnificent, special, enlightened, inspired, charismatic, confident, egotistical, fame, fortune. Shiny polished metal, soft shafts of sunlight. Golden glimmer, glitter, glint, sheen or glow. Sun gods, illuminated lettering, golden halos, crowns, thrones, armour and coins.

Colour Characteristics:

The sacred masculinity of Gold forms one half of the collective wholeness of White. Silver forms the other. This is the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang, with each opposite forming one half of the whole, interdependent and inextricably linked, each providing definition to the other. Whilst Silver reflects receptive yin archetypes in the form of female goddesses, the moon and night, Gold is more indicative of extroverted yang archetypes such as male gods, the sun and day.

COLOUR MAGIC

For students with Aura Cards: The colours of a food can tell us what the food provides or treats. The food helps us taps into the strengths and balance out the weaknesses of each aura colour it presents us with. 

Pineapple:

The yellow colour of pineapples is a glorious food for the solar plexus, helping us to digest food, ideas and experiences. The aura frequency it stimulates is a blend of Warmth Yellow, Happiness Yellow, Vision Yellow, Resourceful Yellow and Courage Orange. Together, these colours have an inspiring, calming, heart-warming, grounding and strengthening action on the aura or mind-body.

Pistachio:

Pistachio is a purple, gold and green, linking the crown chakra, solar plexus chakra and the heart chakra. The specific aura colours we see here are Reflection Purple, Authenticity Green, Wisdom Green, Anxiety Yellow and Fantasy Yellow. Together, these colours stir the imagination, helping us to re-vision ourselves. These potential new self-identities are based on our individuality rather than our need for approval from others.

Passionfruit:

As with pistachio, passionfruit contains green, gold and purple aura frequencies. The specific aura colours here are Defensive Purple, Performance Green, Rumination Yellow and Gold. Together, these colour brighten the aura and make us more comfortable being in the lime-light, without losing ourselves in ego.

FOOD MEDICINE

Pineapple

The taste is awakening like that of lemon, but the action is less grounding, with less ‘wake-you-up’ silver sharpness making the mind alert. Instead, pineapple’s sour softness spreads and melts on the tongue, inspiring an expansion and lifting of the aura. This brings about a gradual awakening in the higher mind, a subtle blending of wonder and revelation, as though one’s world has just opened up and new possibilities are occurring to you. I love the ‘standing back’ capacity pineapple gives us; the ability to just sit and watch new ideas dawn in our own minds without immediately rushing to act on them. Instead, a series of revelations are captured slowly over time, and a decision regarding action is made after weighing up the revelations as a whole. Rather than choosing between these ideas, we find the best parts of each idea and link together in unique ways to create a completely new vision for ourselves and our life.

To access this part of the cake’s magic, I recommend eating 1 piece every 4 days for two months.

Pistachio

The pistachio taste tones the heart chakra, making it tougher, more discerning and less likely to trust others inappropriately. It stop the heart chakra from ‘leaking’ i.e. giving excess energy to others in ways that are disempowering for oneself and others. This food medicine helps us stand back from our own nervous behaviour in social situations so we can let it go with love.

Passionfruit:

Passionfruit taste has a pizz-zang that engages our creative focus. Instead of flitting our attention here and there, we immerse ourselves in tasks with incredible clarity, attention to detail and the energy to complete what we have started. I love the way passionflower balances this intense focus by helping us laugh with pleasure when light-hearted moments interrupt our focus.

SPIRIT MEDICINE

Pineapple:

When I made a spirit connection with pineapple fruit, this is what it told me about its unique spirit medicine:

“I will help you open up your heart to stronger connections with others, connections that will benefit your higher vision. I will help you be drawn to the people who can help facilitate your dreams. All the characters in your life are performing a purpose. I will help draw to you those people who will empower, encourage and strengthen you. Some of them will challenge you at times, but if you can rise to the challenge, you will grow profoundly as a person.”

Pistachio:

When I ‘look’ at the aura after it absorbs pistachio, I see yellow light beaming upwards from the solar plexus chakra (upper abdomen), sending light through the heart chakra so we can see our own beauty. Not physical beauty, but heart-beauty. Pistachio helps us like ourselves enough to appreciate our good points so we can see and appreciate our own potential. If you have a tendency to over-criticise yourself and to only see what needs improving, pistachio will help you relax and just be.

Passionfruit: 

Passionfruit spirit medicine is a bit like the spirit medicine of peacocks, but a little more earthy. It helps us tap into our inner showmanship when it is strategic to do so, while also helping us stand back and watch happily when it’s someone else’s turn to shine. It also enhances our ability to convey ideas or to tell a story in a way that will engage and inspire others.

Chocolate orange and chamomile cake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a raw vegan ‘chakra cake’. As an aura therapist, I’m always thinking in terms of chakras and colours, even when I’m ‘not-cooking’. That’s what I call raw vegan cake making, because technically, you aren’t cooking, you are food processing and freezing instead. This all started not long after we moved out from upstairs and got boarders in. We abandoned our kitchen (and oven) in the process, so I had to get creative with a make-shift outdoors kitchen and me wee indoors kitchenette. I have a baby Weber Q, 2 portable camp stoves that run on gas, a sandwich press that I love cooking mushrooms and eggplant in, a pressure cooker for dahl, curries and soups and my food processor for making vegan cheeses and cakes. Who needs an oven?! Not me!

Balancing Fire in the Heart

photo-24I’m making a potion for a client, an energy remedy with a herbal component.

The herbal carrier, or core remedy, is Nettles. Nettles is incredible on a spirit medicine level, working in very powerful ways to clear anger and resentment out of the aura. It’s particularly effective for cleansing, balancing and stabilising the solar plexus chakra, but in this instance, Nettles in going to be used to cleanse the heart chakra. Another way of saying this is that by clearing old anger out of the solar plexus, the heart chakra will become more stable, open, powerful…. because it’s being supported by a peaceful and empowered sense of self!

On a physical level, Nettles is a blood cleansing and building remedy. What does this mean? It means Nettles cleanses rubbish out of the tissues as well as enriching the red blood cells, making them more robust. There is definitely a sense of red-base-chakra energy about nettles, alongside it’s yellow sunlight-cutting-through-the-crap medicine! I always see yellow shafts or sword-like light when I work with nettles…. it makes me think of archangel Michael with his tie-cutting sword, or the silver energy of lightening bolts cutting through the darkness and waking us up with a bang.

My nature spirit teachers – part 1

On a recent trip through central Australia, my country, my place of birth, spirit spoke to me. We travelled 6000 km and travelled through 15 communities but there was only one place that reached out and said hello. I was curious as to why it was that particular place that spoke to me, so when I got home, I reached out and reconnected. I remembered that the voice had come from the mountain. I wasn’t sure if it was the mountain itself, a cave, or some flowers on the other side, but now as I write this, I hear a voice telling me it was ‘the spirit of the land’. I asked the voice why this place connected with me:

“Because this is your place. It’s the best place for you, where you resonate with the land and the female earth energy. It’s the best place for you now, not always, but now. Come visit and we will talk with you, teach you. We know you and have worked with you before. Some places in Australia will talk to you because they recognise you. You’ve been allowed access to some layers/levels of knowledge-wisdom because of who you are and your history.”
