Aura Soma Color Healing
As a Color Therapist I have a long standing interest in Aura Soma, the dual color bottle healing system conceived by Vicky Wall. Aura Soma works on a deep soul level.
Color is such an integral part of our lives that we sometimes take it for granted, yet it has the power to heal us. When we are poorly we talk about being off color and from an energy point of view this is absolutely true. A clairvoyant may see illness in the aura and body as grubby, dull colors.

It is up to us to hold sacred the vision of a bountiful Earth that we share with all our relations. The Earth is not here for humans alone, it is home to our animal, plant and stone brothers and sisters, not forgetting the devas, elementals and other beings who usually go unseen by humankind.

I have been working with the bird kingdom for healing and guidance for a good while now. In my workshop ‘A Wing and Prayer’ I show others how to connect into bird energies. One of the simplest ways to do this is through feathers.

Green is the central point in our journey through the color spectrum; neither warm nor cold it harmonises our senses and brings us into balance.
