The Essenes lived 2000 years ago and they invoked the angels into every aspect of their lives.  They aspired to live as consciously as possible and believed that their thoughts created beings.  They wished to create angelic beings, always intending to focus on the positive.

The energy of the Essenes is intrinsically significant within the Aura-Soma colour system. Colour is consciousness and within the system B11, clear/pink is the Essene bottle 1, the keynote for which is “taking responsibility for the thoughts and the feelings.”  We also see the Essene energy reflected in B71, pink/clear, Essene bottle 2, the Jewel in the Lotus, the potential within the purification of the 7 energy centres.

Essentially, with the two clear/pink bottles we are looking at love and light.  Bringing light and consciousness to our energy centres, our thoughts, our feelings and our actions.

The Essenes were known for their purification practices, and on an inner plane they were also known for their communions with the Angels, and notably, for their peace meditations.

They believed in Angels, and one expression of this is the Essene Tree of Life.  Distinct from the Kabbalah, although essentially with the same purpose, the Essene Tree is comprised of Angels, the roots and the branches are Angels, which are reflective of the world of nature around us.

The Essene initiates communed with these Angels twice daily, once at dawn and once in the evening, with the aspiration of creating heaven on earth.  They wished to embody the angelic energy.

The pinnacle of their daily practice was held at noon each day in the form of a peace meditation, this is known as the Sevenfold Path of Peace.  They believed peace to be the most important quality in life as they considered all beings to be needful of peace.  There is one specific peace meditation for each of the seven days of the week: peace with the body, the mind, the feelings, humanity, culture, the Mother Earth and the Heavenly Father, and these were practiced in a continuing cycle.

This course helps to make the teachings of the Essenes accessible to us now, so that we may  use their practices in our own lives with simplicity and ease.

I have known Sarah Anne Barker since 2006 and during that time have come to greatly appreciate the calm and gentle way that she embodies her passion for the Aura-Soma Colour Care System.  I have completed the Aura-Soma Level 3 Practitioner Training with Sarah Anne as my teacher and have benefited profoundly from her comprehensive knowledge and wisdom. I also had the privilege of attending Sarah Anne’s course The Essene Tree of Life and the Communion with the Angels. During this three day course we were taken on an exciting journey of discovery into the relationships between the Aura-Soma Equilibrium range and the seven evening Heavenly Angels and the seven morning Earthly Angels.   Added to this were the Sevenfold peace meditations using Quintessences at noon when the sun is highest in the sky. I particularly benefited from grounding all these with my daily equilibrium bottle selections. I recommend Sarah’s course to Aura-Soma Practitioners, Colour-Care Consultants and Teachers wanting to ground their understanding of the Essene Tree of Life and the Angelic realm.

I am particularly grateful to have Sarah Anne living and teaching in Tasmania. Her strong energetic connection with Dev Aura and ongoing earth healing work brings a much needed appreciation of the northern hemisphere perspective while developing a stronger feeling of inclusion in the Aura-Soma family.
