In 1983 the
Aura-Soma® Colour Care System was created
by Vicky Wall, a practising chiropodist, pharmacist and herbalist.
She was 66 years old at the time and clinically blind. She had no
idea what she was doing when she found herself one night in her
laboratory formulating a mixture comprising different layers and
colours of natural ingredients. Yet over the following years thousands
of people were attracted to the dual coloured bottles she created
and allowed her to arrive at a formal body of solidly researched
scientific knowledge on colour. Why did people choose certain bottles
as their favourites? What effect did the bottles have on their lives?
What were the individual's life dynamics before and after exposure
to or use of the bottles? Over a period of a few short years, Vicky
was able to say with absolute certainty "Colour speaks
a language of its own". Today
the process of unlocking the secrets concerning Aura-Soma is in
full swing, particularly the consciousness aspects of the system.
There are currently thousands of teachers and students worldwide.
now based on more than 100 vibrant dual coloured bottles. It is
a non-intrusive colour care system which offers the opportunity
for awareness and transformation. It invites clients to work from
the deepest level of their being, empowering them to help themselves.
A trained practitioner can help interpret the meaning of the colours
in relation to deep emotional, mental, physical and spiritual issues.
An initial consultation lasts up to an hour and a half. Through
their colour preferences, Aura-Soma brings consciousness and insight
from a deep inner level to the everyday lives of clients. During
the consultation they gain insight into their current situation
and the larger pattern of their life story. The colour choice reveals
the gifts, challenges and opportunities of the client. What is needed
to be overcome so that the gifts can come through?
It is not fortune
telling. In making a selection of preferences it is as if something
deep inside responds and knows exactly what is going on in the client's
life. "You are the colours you choose and these reflect
your beings' needs" said Vicky. If the cause of dis-ease
is forgetting who we are, Aura-Soma helps to remember. Colour both
opens the doors to hidden rooms within and is a means of healing
what is found there. Aura-Soma is especially suited for those who
wish to come to a new focus in their life and/or who wish to develop
not a therapy in the traditional sense since it makes no claims
to heal medical conditions. What it does do is address the whole
question of what lies behind dis-ease. Aura-Soma is about what is
right with you, not what is wrong with you. It supports you to come
to a greater ease within yourself.
