Discovering Your Soul Map

As an Awakened Soul, it is only common and natural that I do a Soul Reading for myself to further identify what my soul purpose is, my soul's gifts, which path I should take and so on.

Identifying what you are is something, but knowing what to do with that information is something else and if not, more.  When you are born and raised with skepticism imprinted in every fiber of your being, one will have a hard time believing anything beyond 'human perception'. I've mentioned on my previous blog and also if you've been following me on Instagram,  that I always get either The Magician or The High Priestess when I do a reading for myself. Are the cards telling me that I'm a mage? A seeress? WTF?

Enter Aura-Soma Tarot. Let's me first explain what Aura-Soma is.

Aura-Soma is a holistic soul therapy in which visual and non-visual vibrations of colour, crystals and natural aromas combine with light to harmonise body, mind and soul of humanity as defined and founded by Vicky Wall in 1983. The word Aura comes from the Latin meaning: akin to air, a slight breath, vapour or shimmer. Soma is the ancient Greek word for 'body', while in ancient Sanskrit it designates a mysterious drink that transports the soul into a Divine ecstasy.

Aura-Soma Equilibrium Bottles

The Aura-Soma Tarot by Pamela Matthews deck has 114 cards (as opposed to a normal Tarot deck that has 78 cards) with 2 back cover options: the bottle back or the logo back. I was made aware that the Aura-Soma network will 'no longer produce bottle back, ever' and I'm glad I managed to get a copy with the bottle back cover which I think is essential in an Aura-Soma Tarot reading. An Aura-Soma Tarot Soul Reading is meant to focus on your soul's healing, development and progress. You will be asked to choose 7 Aura-Soma Equilibrium Bottles. The choices you made will then reflect your soul's need and message to you. So I would suggest that you take your time, meditate and listen as you make your colour bottle choice.

My passion and curiosity to discover my soul's gift & purpose drove me to intense research and study. This is the most complex and confusing card system I have ever learned due to its massive symbology. With Aura-Soma Tarot, I was able to discover and confirm what my soul's path is. It was truly an insightful, satisfying and enlightening experience. 

P.S. My research has also led me to conclude that (unless I am mistaken) I am the FIRST to offer Aura-Soma Tarot Soul Reading services here in the Philippines.
