Aura Colours vs. Skin Colours

Today I was asked why I was not weighing in on the racial injustice in the world and what my views were on it.

In practicing psychic mediumship for about a year, I do not see a person's skin colour through my third eye, I see a shadow with an outline of their dominant aura colour while they were incarnated here. I see the colour of their energy field that speaks to their personality, not their skin colour. I am mindful of cultural appropriation and the language I use in describing the appearance of a Spirit but never have needed to disclose the skin colour of someone. In all of the readings that I have done, I describe how they passed away, what their personality was, special memories they wanted to disclose, and what message they would like to be passed on.

Our society places a high level of importance on images and appearances. The media controls what we see and when. All we have control over is what we choose to share over social media or with our immediate circles of family and friends.

I am all for protesting and human rights, yet since the murder of George Floyd, I had chosen to be quiet. I had chosen to stay silent and not to speak to the injustice in the world.

I told myself that this was the best way, there are enough people protesting and there are enough people spreading the awareness. I don't want to contribute to the conflict, to the violence.

I was wrong. The real reason is that I did not want to be told that I don't and never will understand when I shared a post regarding racial profiling and hate crimes because I am white. I did not want people arguing on my social media and speaking against the police force when this incident involved four police officers. I did not want people drawing attention to the fact that my husband is black and fit the demographic or my son is just pale enough that maybe he will not experience as much racism when he grows up.

I did not want to get involved and I did not want to face reality, but this is not about me, this is about all of us. We are all connected. We are all a part of this reality.

What happened on May 25, 2020 and what has happened in the following weeks is appalling.

The fact is that the murder of George Floyd was a hate crime. This was not the first time, and this will not be the last.

No, I do not have a personal relationship with the Floyd family. No, I do not live in Minneapolis. No, I am not black.

I am a white woman in her early thirties. I am not a minority. It would be naive to say that I have never experienced prejudice, racial slurs, or been assaulted based on my appearance. It would be naive to say that I haven't had to leave stores because of the racism my family and I have experienced, but I am not black.

I do not wake up every day and wonder which person I spoke to over the phone will be surprised to see that I am black when I see them in person. Which person will call me a derogatory name when I am walking down the street? Which person will tell me to go back to where I came from when I am pumping gas? Which person will tell me that I remind them of Tiger Woods because they are surprised that I am well spoken? Which person will assume I only enjoy listening to certain genres of music or dress a certain way?

But again, this is not about me.

I ask you to contemplate how this situation has affected your life. Are you angry? Are you sad?

This is not about you either. This is not about taking out your anger on businesses and looting. This is not about degrading police officers. And this is definitely not about convincing yourself that the police must have an excuse for what they did.

This is about standing up for what is right and making a change in the world, one person at a time. Another man had to die to bring our attention to what has been going on for many lifetimes. A position of power was used to commit a hate crime. Four men were responsible, not just one.

You are only one person but each person that decides to take a stand makes a difference.

What can you do?

You can continue spreading awareness by using your voice and your words to encourage justice and change. You can encourage people to discover more about what has happened in the past so that we can stand together and change the future.

Most importantly, you can pray for the family of George Floyd who has experienced a loss like no other. The family of George Floyd watched him die on video. They heard about his death through the media. They are experiencing the duality of slander of their family, and violence in his name, all in addition to the loss of their beloved brother, father, son, and uncle.

In reading this, I hope you take the time to examine your involvement in the racism and prejudice in this world and decide what you are going to do to make a change.
