Aura Soma of the Soul

Aura-Soma is a form of color therapy, energy work and “soul therapy” that supports you spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.

Jewels in a bottle. That’s how the English woman and creator of Aura Soma, Vicky Wall visualized these beautiful liquid colors captured in tiny bottles, filled with potent energy to awaken your soul’s essence. You can see from the photo how bright and vibrant they are, and as you allow yourself to focus on the one that draws your attention, there is something within that bottle–within the very vibration of those colors calling out to you from the depths of your being. The voice of our spirit guides us as we work with the colors, taking us on an inner journey of who we are, what we are here to shine, teach, share, heal and how we go about stepping fully into that truth.

I worked this week with Dr. Tina van Leuven of Inner Delight, and the beautiful Aura Soma colors. It was as though we were three there, in our own little Skype space–Tina, me and the ‘jewels’ themselves. The process is quite amazing, as you bring with the colors ‘chosen for you’ through the date of your birth. To me, this is the fate we are born into. It’s the map of who we are, similar to our birth chart in astrology. Much is revealed through these colors and the energies they represent. We see what we have come here as and how that can impact our lives.

But even more empowering and healing was the opportunity to CHOOSE the colors that called out to my being. And it’s almost miraculous how this happens, that we so deeply resonate with colors in a bottle as part of who we are. There is an unspoken communication being shared between us. These colors, their brilliance, their pairings together (such as magenta on top/purple on bottom) and their LIVE vibrations call out to us, as though we are ‘remembering’ the truth of our soul’s inner knowing. These colors that we CHOOSE are as though we are looking straight into our destiny.

Destiny = Fate + Choice

As I listened to Tina sharing each one’s message with me, there were times emotions came unexpectedly, revealing spaces where a shift in my belief system was needed, and in fact began occurring in that very instant. It was powerfully awakening, and I find myself in absolute delight with what I am learning about my own journey and how I can CHOOSE to step even more fully into who I am. RIGHT NOW!

I’m always intrigued to learn more about navigating this journey, to understand how to connect more intimately to the essence of who I am. Sharing this time with Tina brought about a rapid shift and reminded me once again through a lovely conversation with my friend Anthony Hidalgo that we can heal as fast as we choose. Gone is the old paradigm that we must enter years of therapy, or suffer weeks of agony wondering how this came to be, what we must do to release it, etc. We can simply choose to see it for what it is and to let go of all old residues around it–and trust the Universe is supporting us through the process with loving grace.

Consider for yourself which colors speak to you…and however it is you choose to do so, take the time to understand how these jewels of your soul call out to your from the depths of your being and through the whispers of your heart. xo


Animating ‘Living in the Moment’

It’s so easy to say, to use as a mantra, to teach others.  ‘Stay present in THIS moment.’  Eckhart Tolle has devoted an entire book to it, as have many other spiritual teachers.  We’ve talked about it here in the Spirit Journal.  In order to connect to our greatest potential as humans and spirit beings, it’s essential to remain present, to allow ourselves to be open to all that exists in THIS moment.

This basic, but potent spiritual practice has more and more found a rhythm in my life.  I’ve shared with many of you in various ways the message one of our ministers taught one Sunday nearly 20 years ago: ‘wait to worry.’  Ok, so something is weighing on you, it could be a disaster, painful, expensive, unnerving, etc.  Set aside a time on your calendar in the future just for the worry.  Chances are, the anxiety you’re feeling now will be gone by then.  And it’s the anxiety, stress and worry that remove us from our purest selves…and the potential each moment offers to us to live authentically.

As my ‘work’ has been in transformation of late, remembering to be patient, nurture an open heart and allow whatever the Universe sends my way have all been engaged in a sacred dance within my being.  So many of us feel vulnerable to ‘put ourselves out there,’ to let down the walls and be fully seen for all of who we are. 

In collaborating with scholar, mystic and author of the The Hope Andrew Harvey and the Whispering Energy community, we are focused on heart-centered networking.  This means connecting through the heart, the whispers, the purity of your very presence.  It also means choosing to be open, seen, heard.  Malathy Drew teaches that as you move forward in this work, you will naturally confront your fears and anxieties.  It’s what we choose to do with them that counts.

I’ve seen mine, and have chosen to ‘wait to worry’ about what could potentially be uncomfortable.  In doing so, I sat down last week with Tina van Leuven of Inner Delight to talk about my work, intentions and writing.  Had I put too much thought into it, it would have certainly created an unraveling in my soul, a haunting in my spirit and an absolute panic over my entire being.  Instead, what transpired was a lovely, pure and heartfelt conversation flowing directly from the truth of my soul.  I chose to ‘live in the moment’–to be at one with all that was present in that space for me, for Tina and for all who view the message and connect to their own heart whispers and inner potential.

And so my friends, from someone who has the propensity to be very self-critical and whose journey has been all about allowing her voice to be heard–out loud–I promise you it was so much easier than my mind could have anticipated.  We are our own worst enemy.  And our monkey mind creates turmoil that would else be nonexistent.  I see so very clearly how much personal power was claimed for my spirit through this process.  A tremendous shift has occurred, and I feel more deeply connected to the Divine AND to my Divine self.  This then becomes a ripple effect, extending outward into the world, in ways of which we can’t even be aware. 

This video shares a bit about heart whispers and how we connect to their presence and gifts.  It also signifies an opening….letting ourselves be seen and heard…..connecting authentically to our divinity and sacred presence…..all through listening….to the whispers of our hearts….

Much love.
