What is an Aura?

As a qualified horticulturalist for over 30 years, Richard uses his intuition and knowelege of the plant kingdom and Mother earth to bring about healing to the mind, body and spirit.



During a flower reading, the client chooses a flower from a vase or a deck of cards featuring pictures of flowers. People are encouraged to choose one that ‘speaks to them’ or that they are drawn to. Upon picking a flower, I talk the client through the meaning of the subtleties of the chosen flower and what “message” or healing powers it has to offer.

Flower psychometry (also known as an intuitive flower reading) is an ancient art that uses symbolism, intuition, and knowledge of the flower to interpret a message for the client. Flower attributes such as color, condition, stem, and shape are used to build insight. Other things to consider are leaves, the flower's habitat, how it grows, and names of the flowers. Even the client’s demeanor may be quite telling as they choose a flower contradictory to their outer appearance. All of these observations together can provide insight into the client's present situation in life or give them direction.  

Some interpretations have a general consensus, such as the rose. Most people would agree the rose has a strong emotional tie as it is the flower of love and gratitude. Choosing a rose could symbolize the need for self-care, attention to detail, or a new beginning on the horizon—think new bloom. Since the rose has thorns, I may ask the client what unnecessary boundaries or excuses are holding them back.

Often, definitions derive from the appearance or behavior of the plant itself. When clients pick a sunflower, I associate it with the sun. They are circular, yellow, and provide life—just like the sun. Sunflowers represent a need to be seen. A memorable sunflower reading came from a client who told me after the reading she was about to take her bar exams. Just as the sunflower stands tall amongst the other flowers, I reiterated that this was her moment to shine.  She would come out a head above the rest!  

By working with flowers, you will grow to understand how to interpret using your own intuition, giving messages and readings through the energies of the flower. Flower readings provide a non-threatening method to unlocking mysteries as well as a fun addition to any party or event!

Is It Hard to See and Read Auras?

The most important thing you have to know is that you do not need to be a psychic to see auras. While some psychics specialize in seeing and decoding auras, it’s a skill that anyone can learn, even if you don’t have any other psychic gifts or abilities.


Some people are naturally able to see auras but they are the lucky ones. For most people, it has to be learned. Like any new learned skill, it takes time and commitment but it is relatively easy. And like any other skill, the more you practice, the better you will get. Most people start by learning how to see their own aura. At first, you may only see the lower layers but if you stick with it, you will be able to see the higher levels too.

With training, an aura can be observed by the naked eye. More often, however, the aura is sensed by those that possess psychic abilities. You can learn to sense the aura of others as well as your own.

Why Learn to Read Auras?

While the aura can actually be *seen* by certain people, it can be *felt* by everyone. The energy you give off and that is in your aura can be contagious, which is why you start to feel extra happy if you’re around someone who’s a positive, optimistic person and why you feel super drained when you’re around someone who’s a total bummer. Bleh.

If you are experiencing a drastic mood change due to your horrible boss or even more horrible partner, your aura will likely reflect that. And other things like physical and emotional trauma or illnesses can also change your aura.

While there are different layers and colors to each person’s aura that all mean different things, every person often has one predominant aura color. Your aura can change, though, depending on your state of mind but it normally returns to its original color once you are balanced again.

During todays workshop you will learn:

- the meanings of different colours that surround us and in turn, how to read auras.

- where these colours originate, 

- what it means when the colours are "pale", "muddy", "vibrant", "contracted" etc. 


- the common symbols that are seen in the Aura,  


- the different ways to see and sense the Aura,


- the things that can enhance or deplete the Aura.

At the end of the workshop, there will be a question and answer period.
