The Joy of Yellow by Mike Booth

Colour is a universal language which can help us in the process of individuation and self-realisation. Aura-Soma® works with the spectrum of visible colour as well as the information encoded in the sequence of colour combinations.  

As Rudolph Steiner said: 

‘Colour is the soul element of nature and of the whole cosmos, and we have a share in this soul element when we experience colour.’

Aura-Soma appeals to many people throughout the world, regardless of race or religion, because of the inherent simplicity of colour. Yet as we begin to understand the complexity of colour, those of us who are compelled to look deeper can find the exploration extremely satisfying.


Yellow is the source of happiness and laughter within ourselves. The joy of life itself. Yellow is also the colour of intellect and clarity of thought. In the same way that orange is related to the emotional body, yellow is related to the mental body, stimulating us to regenerate our mental capacity and ability to learn. Yellow helps us develop self-knowledge and stimulate intuitive knowledge.

Yellow can also relate to nervous fears and anxieties, that may cause us to experience a knot of contraction created by self-consciousness. That knot tightens with embarrassment. It is perhaps most acutely felt when we are teenagers, when our sensation in the solar plexus (the yellow area of our self) is of an acute sense of self-consciousness.  As we let that go and feel more at ease, the repercussions ideally would actualise as self-awareness.

Our Aura-Soma Yellow Pomander acts as an antidote to ‘the blues’, nervousness and anxiety; bringing in the sunshine and unlocking a remarkable sense of joy. Applying the Yellow Pomander can uplift us when we are suffering from a lack of sunlight. 

How to Benefit from Colour

Aura-Soma engages us at our sense doors. Whilst it is intriguing to look at the colours and colour combinations to see which ones call to us, it is far more effective to actually use the various Equilibrium bottles, Pomanders. Quintessences, ArchAngeloi and Colour Essences. In doing so, experiencing the liquids and aromas can bring rapid personal growth, balance and support in our journey toward ourselves. 

Steiner explains this living experience as such: 

‘We must bring to life what is in the colour, not by practicing colour symbolism, which is the worst possible thing, but by actually discovering what is in colour, in the same way as the power of laughter is in someone who laughs. … The essential thing is to know how to open our souls to what speaks to us out of colour.’
