Colour Therapy

Colour is all around us. It is a universal language through which nature speaks. Life expresses itself through colour and when we look at nature we can see the colours that nature expresses like the blue of the sky, the yellow of sunshine and the green of the forest.

While our perception of colour is subjective, many colours have universal meaning. For example, colours in the red area of the colour spectrum are known as warm colours and include red, orange and yellow. These warm colours evoke emotions ranging from feelings of warmth and comfort to feelings of anger and hostility. Colours on the blue side of the spectrum are known as cool colours and include blue, purple and green. These colours are often described as calm, but can also call to mind feelings of sadness or indifference.

The colours we are drawn to reflect our needs that lie hidden within. For example, if we are drawn to green we may be feeling too crowded with too many things to do and need to feel the open panoramic space of nature to heal that feeling. If we are drawn to the turquoise of the ocean we may want to play and feel light-hearted like a dolphin rather than feel heavily laden by the day-to-day grind.

Our colour choices help us to recognise these needs at a deep level. Colours that attract us give us some idea of what it is inside us that is resonating and important to be seen at this time.

What Is Aura-Soma?

Aura-Soma is a complete colour therapy system that consists of 107 glass bottles, each containing two different coloured layers of liquid, oil over water. The energy of colour combinations in each bottle is also supported by herb and crystal energies. These magic bottles are the heart of the Aura-Soma system.

This combined energy of colour, crystals and herbs acts as a stimulant for our consciousness to be awakened to information we need to know, absorb and integrate. Through its use and application the Aura-Soma system opens levels of communication between the self and the soul. Your chosen colours also have the capacity to support you in a deeper understanding of your "soul" selves, past, present and those to come. Through the wave-lengths of colour you are given clues to becoming self empowered and the energy from the bottles guide you in making life decisions in alignment with your life purpose and evolution.

Simply said – Aura-Soma is the key to our consciousness through our colour choices.

What Happens During A Colour Therapy Session or Reading?

The principle of Aura-Soma is “You Are The Colours You Choose”, so you will be asked to select four dual-coloured bottles. I will then explain the qualities of the colours you have selected and ask you questions about how those qualities may be playing themselves out in your life. The colours you choose synthesize to weave a story about your mission or purpose in life, how you can fulfil that mission, what your challenges, gifts and talents might be, where you are now in relation to your growth and understanding about your purpose, and what awaits you in the near future.

Once you have done that I will give you guidance about the best bottle from your selection for you to take home and work with by applying it your body. All you have to do is sit back and let the energy of the bottle perform it’s magic.

A Colour Reading session takes approximately 1 hour. Depending on the information that emerges during that session you may choose to have a follow up session one month later to check in with your progress. Aura-Soma readings can be repeated about 4 times per year to help you stay on track with your deeper needs, life purpose and evolution, helping you to express your full potential and wholeness.

My experience with Aura-Soma

In 1998 I found myself in a level 1 workshop learning about Aura-Soma. I had been attracted to the little glistening jewel-coloured bottles at many festivals, but never actually tried them. Finally I decided to look into Aura-Soma and learn why I was so attracted to the bottles of colour. What I discovered was a magical system that allowed not only my subconscious and superconscious to speak to me, but the bottles somehow kick-started my intuition, something I was completely surprised by.

Although I’m sure a recommendation was given at the time as to which bottle to start working with, I decided to begin with the orange over orange bottle. This bottle is known as the Humpty Dumpty bottle or etheric rescue bottle. I’d not had the easiest childhood but as an adult I felt that parts of me had split off and were having trouble finding their way back but just like in the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme, I couldn’t put myself back together again. I knew that forces greater than I had to do it so over the next few days, as I started applying the shaken contents of the bottle to my body, I began to feel that something inside me was changing but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Slowly over the following weeks I felt aspects of myself coming together and healing. It was nothing short of miraculous as I felt my emotions smoothing out and feeling settled as my many child-selves reintegrated themselves into my adult self. It really was amazing.

From there I knew I had found something that verged on the mystical but I put it on the backburner for some years until I decided I wanted to become a colour therapist. This was after losing my way about my life purpose. I knew I was a healer/therapist but resisted stepping fully into this role. Finally I stopped resisting and refreshed my past training before taking the practitioner level training. By this time all the wonderful abilities I know I had trapped inside me had turned to concrete after spending years toiling in jobs that I knew were going in the opposite direction to what I knew I should be doing. During my training I seemed to be always drawn to Violet and Pale Violet, the colours of transformation, spirituality and healing. That was the path I was meant to be on and my daily colour selections kept confirming it over and over again.

After the course I began to use the St Germaine bottle on my body around my hairline, and to my amazement I really started to feel that heavy feeling of heavy concrete within me loosening up. Over the following 6 days I really felt a big change, and as I felt those changes occurring there seemed to be similar changes and opportunities popping up around me. Finally I could once again begin to reconnect to the path I knew I should be on. I kid you not, so much started changing and transforming in my life I eventually felt I had to stop using the bottle for a brief period just so I could take a breath and have a rest!

It’s been a remarkable journey with the bottles and the thing I love about them is that they know exactly what to do and how to do it. The bottles seem to ‘scan’ our bodies and release within us the necessary energies that we need, whether we know it or not.
