What exactly is ‘Colour Mirrors’?
The road that led us to our current path is often meandering and the events that take place along the way can shape that route. How I became a Colour Mirrors therapist is no exception.
Colour Mirrors therapy is hard to describe well because it really has to been seen/felt to be understood properly but as many people often ask me what Colour Mirrors is so I thought I’d try put it into words.
I was a dreamer who was grew up in Edinburgh where the winters were harsh. The whipping winds and weak sunshine failed to light up this stunning city for large parts of the year. As a teenager I dreamt about becoming an artist and at secondary school the art classes were my oasis (and so was my inspiring teacher and mentor Mardi Barrie). I felt excited by the colours of the paints and the opportunity they gave me to transport myself to another world. The turquoise reminded me of the clear blue of Mediterranean skies (that at that time I’d only seen in a magazine) and the yellows and golds of the sun. My dream to become an artist was realised when I went to Art College in Liverpool and then in my 20’s to Rome as a video editor where I realised my Mediterranean dream.
Fast forward 7 years and all my worldly experiences came crashing to a head when I developed anxiety. I was forced to confront what was and wasn’t working in my life. I tried a lot of techniques, but as a last resort I decided to have some EFT sessions. To my surprise I started to move forward and feel like my old self again. In fact I felt so much better that I decided to train as an EFT practitioner. Instead of feeling blocked and stuck I was engaging with life again. My life had positively changed and I wished to share this new tool with the world.
Shortly after training as an EFT therapist, I discovered Colour Mirrors at a Matrix Birth Reimprinting training workshop with Sharon King. When I saw the bottles, it was love at ﬁrst sight. Here was the perfect fusion of my artistic leanings with my love of alternative therapies. Even though working with EFT is very imaginative, Colour Mirrors brings new dimensions with beautiful colours and scents. My work with colour mirrors has further helped me with my relationships and my soul purpose.
How the bottles are used
You can mediate with the bottles, bathe with them and have a one-to-one sessions with a Colour Mirrors practitioner. A client will start with an issue, then choose a bottle to reﬂect that issue and investigate what it means to them. Many people ﬁnd that the bottles remind them of a memory which evokes strong positive or negative reactions to the colours. The client feels into these reactions and may decide to choose more bottles to offer support or perhaps decide that they don’t need a particular bottle once they have worked through some of the feelings associated with it.
People ﬁnd that by placing one bottle beside another one they have a strong reaction that can create a sense of calm or provide a new way of looking at an old situation or emotional state.
Working with the bottles in this way can be an empowering process because you can manipulate them personally and clients often get their own answers whilst working with the bottles. There are speciﬁc Chakra bottles and sessions can be performed by placing the bottles on a clients body to identify any blocks. Colour Mirrors also works excellently in combination with EFT, (Emotional Freedom Technique) the scents and colours shifting energy more swiftly.
What issues can Colour Mirrors be used for?
The bottles reﬂect how we are feeling and can be used for all kinds of issues. Clients often report after a Colour Mirrors session that it brings clarity to difﬁcult personal situations and problems, relationship issues, potential, purpose, self-belief and self-worth. Clients also report that the bottles lead them to think about what they really want and need in their lives (their purpose) as opposed to what they consciously think they want.
Colour therapy has a long history that goes back to the Egyptians, who worshipped the sun and used colour for cures and ailments. Colour is light and energy. We are surrounded by colour and it subconsciously inﬂuences our every waking moment. It is evident in nature, to signal danger or to attract the opposite sex for example. It is integral to our society, whether it be the use of road signs, trafﬁc lights and brake lights to warn us of potential dangers or being used in advertising and big business to inﬂuence our actions.
Colour can inﬂuence us subconsciously, to eat, buy and act in certain ways. Orange and red are colours that are known to stimulate our hunger, so when companies use these colours, they can inﬂuence our appetite and our desire to buy a product because the colour is speaking directly to our subconscious.
Whilst colour affects our minds, by entering through our eyes, it’s important to note that light can also enter through our skin. Given the unique frequencies and vibrations of various colours, people believe that certain colours entering the body can activate hormones causing chemical reactions within the body, then inﬂuencing emotion and enabling the body to heal.
When light waves bounce of different objects they create the sensation of colour. This means that everything we see is reﬂected light. Low frequency light waves register as the colour red and high frequency waves lengths are perceived as the colour violet.
Melissie Jolly says about the bottles ‘ Above all they are made with the highest intention. Energy follows intention and the intention is for healing to happen in whichever way the soul is ready to receive it.’
