The Language of
Imagine yourself if you will, waking
up one morning, opening your eyes to a...black and white world!
Shaking your head in disbelief, rubbing your eyes, closing them
and opening again...nothing changed, the world is still black
and white...no other color what-so-ever. Now you start thinking...is
it morning or afternoon? Is this the blue shirt or the green
one? And what is that "thing" overlaid on my plate?
Colors are the language the universe
is using in a conversation with our soul! They are certain energetic
codes, like we said before. Each color holds different energy,
and each color is active in a different area. As human beings
we are able to distinguish seven main color rays here on earth,
energies we refer to as the "rainbow colors". In addition
we also have the "infrared" and the "ultra violet"
rays. All hues, shades and different tints we are able to perceive
are being formed from the main rainbow colors, in different
dosages and combinations. I see it as an infinite creation,
in constant motion. Different additional colors do exist in
the universe, yet they are energetically unfit to reach earth.
Throughout all human evolution,
we have always used colors in many different ways. In Atlantis
it was the loading of the energies into the crystal mountain
that provided life force to earth; in ancient Egypt it was used
to heal the person physically as well as mentally and spiritually.
Body paints have been used in native cultures for different
processes. The animal kingdom uses colors for camouflage, or
prominence, depending on the place, time, situation and the
animal itself. The flora kingdom is reflecting all colors in
a most awesome way, allowing us to experience the great variety
Today we know and use many different
methods for working with color therapy. The most popular ones
are working with chakras-the energetic centers placed in and
out of our body, working with crystals, herbs, colored water,
working on our aura, as well as different methods of diagnosing
situations by color readings. We also know the work with physical
paints such as body paints, drawing as a therapy, and the design
of our surroundings for the optimum effect. In every place we
exist, on every situation, we always see, speak, sense, hear
and breathe colors be it in the physical awareness, or beyond.
As a person who "lives"
colors all the time, I would like to mention a few of the better
known and unknown methods of color therapy. First I would like
to emphasize that the most important tool we have is how we
"feel" about certain colors at a given moment. Our
soul and inner core know our personal color combinations to
begin with, colors are referred to as soul attributes and they
know which color energy is needed at certain times. Listening
to our inner self can give us the best indication to our situation
then. Now I would like to bring a few of the popular methods
to work with color energies. In this lesson you will have a
list of different techniques and the methods to work with them,
check and see which of the applies to you best, this is the
one recommended to start with. Loading
Colored water can be used to
work on each level separately or on the whole person in general.
We can drink different colored waters for many purposes. For
example, when a person feels tired and drained for a long time,
it will be recommended to drink red loaded water for a short
period of time in order to restore the energies. For dealing
with cold situations, as well as the flu, it is recommended
to drink green loaded water for a few days in order to help
the body overcome the weakness. These examples are just a drop
in the sea, we can prepare colored water for almost any purpose
required, be it for the physical body, for mental level, emotional
stress or spiritual work.
Preparing the water needs some attention
and awareness on our side. First, to be aware of which color
is needed, or which color is the one which is "calling"
A few methods are being used in
loading colored energies into water:
Radiating Colors Into Water
For this method we need :
Sterile transparent glass bottle or jar ( we can sterilize it
with boiling water)
The result will give us water we
can either drink for healing or apply on an outer location on
Pour the water into the bottle /
Center yourself, bring the color you want into awareness.
In your mind`s eye, send the color energy to your palm, letting
it accumulate there for a while.
In the center of our palms we have small chakras we always work
Once you feel the chakra or the center of your palms are loaded,
you concentrate on the bottle / jar filled with purified water,
and start sending this energy into the water.
It can take a while, keep radiating the color as long as you
feel the energy flow.
"See" the water slowly change its color.
Once you feel the flow has stopped, your work is done.
You can store this bottle / jar
in a cool place for few days of use. For severe cases drink
as much as 3 cups a day, for lighter cases a medium size cup
first thing in the morning can create wonders. This method is
powerful due to the additional life force radiated as a natural
process whenever we radiate energy through our palms. This creates
a synergy of color and life force.
Natural Light Absorption :
We need transparent colored glass bottle or jar ( sold in many
A sunny location
Fill the transparent colored bottle
/ jar with water, let it stand in the sun.
The water then absorbs color energy
from the glass itself, receiving in addition the energy of the
sun during the day, and the energy of the moon during the night.
Again we have a synergy combination that works on all levels.
For sever cases we would leave the bottle / jar out (covered
of course) for 4-5 days.
we will get a concentrated energetic water to drink.
For mild cases, 2-3 days out can be enough.
For example :
for an infected wound / scratch / burn on the skin I would load
water with either gold or purple color (both antiseptic) for
it will give me a concentrated energy to work with compresses,
plasters, or washes.
In addition I would drink small portions of the colored water
twice a day.
For a continuing insomnia I would
load royal blue water for 2 days, drink a regular size cup about
2-3 hours before going to sleep.
For general lack of energy we face at times we would load red
or orange color for 2-3 days, drinking it throughout the day
or for those hours we need to be more active.
The period of time this treatment last depends on how sever
the case is.
Self-awareness is an important tool, one we use to detect our
situation at all times.
Listen to your body, inner self and what you are called to do
on a daily basis, it will allow you to determine what you need.
Use of Colored Papers / Fabrics :
Much like the second method, this one involves absorption of
sun and moon energies.
Instead of using colored glass we use clear glass bottle / jar,
wrapping it with colored paper or fabric.
The main difference between the two methods is the density of
color absorbed. while using transparent colored glass.
Water will absorb gentler less dense energies.
When we use paper / fabric wrap, the colors absorbed are "thicker",
they are fitted more for physical use then spiritual healing.
Strong opaque colors are more related to earthly / physical
energies in the sense of density.
Crystals and Minerals Colored
Working with crystals and minerals is a very well-known method
for loading colored energies into water.
For this method we need :
A sterile jar ( bottle will not fit for this one)
A cleansed and purified crystal / mineral
A sunny place can be an advantage, but not a must.
Note : the crystal or mineral we will use MUST be purified before
put into the water. this is to assure that only natural attributes
of the stone and color will be absorbed into the water, and
not any other energies the stone picked from its surroundings.
Put the desired crystal / mineral in the middle of a jar, and
slowly pour purified water, filling it almost
to the top.
Cover the jar, leave standing for 1-4 days, preferably in a
Here is a list of crystals and minerals
I use for this method :
For red color we can use : ruby, red obsidian, and hematite.
For orange color we can use : carnelian,
and orange amber.
For yellow color we can use : citron
and yellow amber.
For green color we can use : bloodstone,
aventurin, jade. (never use the malachite !)
For pink color we can use :
For turquoise we can use : crisocola
For blue color we can use : sodalite,
lapis lazuli, and angelite.
for purple color we can use
: amethyst and sugylite.
For white color we can use : clear
For black color we can use
: snow flake obsidian, black onyx.
The Feng Shui Color Use :
Feng Shui is the Chinese concept of living in balance and harmony
with the surroundings. It involves coordination between energies
of place, element, animal totems, energies of the surroundings
and the use of colors. The aspect I bring here is the one of
colors only. The colors presented here are adaptable to a Western
lifestyle and perception. The physical environment colors are
effective on all levels at all times.
A few components are being taken
into consideration when we use the Feng Shui method for ultimate
absorption : first is the background the color is laid upon;
second is the nature of the surface, meaning if its smooth or
rough; the third factor is the kind of light we are exposed
to. In addition, three components determine the quality of color
: the first one is the color itself or the shade; the second
is the tone which reflects the clarity, which is determined
by a black/white scale. In order to get luscious color, we must
add white, if we want a darker one, we add black. The third
component is intensity of the color, which is determined according
to brightness or opacity. It relates to saturation relatively
to grey. A strong color is one that holds full intensity, a
soft color is a more opaque one.
When decorating our environment,
(house, place of work etc.) we should consider the different
effects colors have on us. We are able to create an illusion
of a very open space when we use clear and bright colors, or
create a closed, sealed feeling when we use the darker ones.
The right use of colors is able to emphasize shapes, like a
dark sofa on a bright colored wall.
When thinking about color decorating
we refer to few color wheels :
1. monochromatic - (one color)
Its principle is based on one color and the use of all its tones
as a scale. This creates a sense of tranquility, but can be
very boring. For more interesting effect we can play with the
intensity of the color, as well as its tones and the many different
2. Complementary colors :
A principle based on the use of two opposite colors on the wheel,
one of the cold family ( green, blue and purple), and another
from the warm one ( red, orange and yellow). This is called
" complementary effect". complementary colors are
: red - green, orange - blue, yellow - purple, turquoise - peach,
and gold - indigo.
3. Compatible wheel :
This principle is based on the use of two attached colors on
the wheel, holding similar shade qualities. This kind of layout
is considered quiet and pleasant, and can be improved with different
tones of the colors on certain levels. For example : orange
and yellow, or green and blue.
4. Triade wheel :
This principle is based on the use of three different colors
, positioned in equal distances from each other on the wheel.
for example : violet - green - orange. These combinations can
have a pleasant balance for the eyes, provided we use a low
intensity of the color, and the range of tones.
5. Complementary and Split :
This principle is based on the use of three colors from the
wheel, two of them attached, and the third is an opposite one.
For example : yellow - orange - blue. These combinations are
also very pleasant for the eyes. To those of you who enjoy creative
skills, I would suggest painting those color wheels for a better
understanding in the use of them. Each and every color holds
different qualities and traits like we said before. We refer
to colors as coded in an energetic wave length. Being an energy
expressed on earth, or anywhere else around the universe, these
codes are balanced both by positive and negative attributes.
Very similar attributes will be found
in most studies and literature. Some differences though will
be found when we refer to colors on the different levels : physical,
mental, emotional, and spiritual. All we need to remember is
that each color is a whole world unto itself, hence we should
always keep our mind open to any information we receive from
Each color holds a whole unique
library of information. Here are the qualities we will usually
find in most informative literature and studies, as a general
meaning of a color. As you start working with the colors you
will find that certain shades are more effective than others,
depending on the person who uses them , as well as the method
being used for work, and the purpose for this use.
Red - is the first color babies
identify after black and white. It is an evocative color, it
increases the rhythm of heart activity, blood pressure and breathing.
Although red is very much connected with sexuality, it is preferred
not to use it in bedrooms, in order to prevent sleeping disorders.
Being an appetite and motion stimulator, it is very often used
in restaurants in order to increase turnover. Red is good for
use in any place where dynamic activity is taking place. It
is usually preferable to use red as secluded or single spots
in space. These red spots are able to create a motion feeling.
When used in large surfaces, its better to use soft tones of
Orange - symbolizes health
and life, is considered as propitious, ambitious, creative,
and imaginary. The use of orange around the house or work place
inspires optimism and cheerfulness. It is very recommended for
dining areas due to its blessed effect on the digestive system.
In most cases it is preferred to be balanced with the complimentary
color: the blue and its many shades and tones. An orange lighting
is inviting social conversations and talks. As a preferred use
of the full pure shade of the color in spots around the space,
and when used in wider areas, use the softer tones, such as
peach, autumn colors, or terra-cotta. Orange is very recommended
in a surrounding of children rooms and students study areas.
Yellow - symbolizes the sun
and light, its cheerful and the color of joy, invoicing thought,
logic, openness, and intelligence. The yellow has a positive
effect on body to cleanse and purify. It encourages life force
in the body. Overuse of yellow can cause confusion and imbalance.
An addition of white to the basic shade will create brightness
and lively atmosphere. Such a tone can be suitable for the kitchen
or dining room. Combining green with yellow creates a feeling
of freshness. When combined with blue it creates a pleasant
Green - represents balance,
growth and harmony. It creates a feeling of freedom and motion.
It holds relaxing qualities, quiets the senses and nervous system.
Using it at home is preferred in combination mainly with flora,
or use in smaller dosages of the color. It is wonderful to use
in areas of bathrooms either in larger surfaces or as accessories
added. When overused it might create a feeling of depletion
in energy. Green combines well with lime green, pink, magenta,
blue and peach. All those colors are pleasant combinations for
the eyes and leave us with a sense of freshness.
Turquoise - is the color of
the sea and summer sky. It's oftentimes used in the Middle East
for an outside paint on houses walls, because it is believed
to be a protective color against the "evil eye". Turquoise
holds both earth and spiritual effects at the same time. It
invokes sub-consciousness and the world of emotions. It is considered
to be a prestigious color and is ideal for use in different
rooms such as : living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens,
as well as in an office or work area. It is best combined with
hues of red, pink and peach. Small additions of green create
spectacular effect for the eye. Turquoise is considered to be
a "new age" energy. It was widely used in the days
of Atlantis, disappeared from the face of the earth after Atlantis
was destroyed, and returned
only a few thousand years ago. It is very common in jewelry
design and use, especially among the native people who are very
aware of its attributes.
Blue - is the color of peace,
truth, trust and security. It relates to spiritual qualities,
has a cooling effect on the physical body. The darker blues
are usually more difficult to accommodate and better to use
in combinations or red, orange or yellow. Green can also have
a blessed additional effect on it. Blue is best used in offices,
clinics, and therapy rooms.
Light blue is a wonderful
color for a nursery room. Painting the ceiling with a few shades
of sky blue in children's rooms gives a feeling of freedom and
open space. The more dramatic tones of the blue are the indigo
and navy blue. They should be used with paler tones to get a
balanced effect. Light blue or azure combines well with lilac,
brown, peach, lime green or white.
Violet represents ideals,
intuition, integrity and performance of ceremonies. Its
a color of detoxification, a very powerful energy for a sense
of good health. Its a very dominant color, best used in meditation
rooms or sacred spaces. The lighter tone of violet - the lavender
and lilac are enjoyable and very pleasant for the eyes. They
are very suitable for use in different rooms around the house,
like bedrooms, bathrooms, entrances and living rooms. They are
capable of creating an illusion of size and space. In addition
they are well combined with magenta, pink, blue and green.
Black can add glory and splendor
to a room, as well as create a mystical atmosphere. It is preferable
to avoid large black spaces on walls for it might create gloominess
and depression. When added in smaller dosages black is a noticeable
energy. For some is it a color of negative energy, while for
others it represents inner dwelling and hibernation.
White is the reflector of
all colors. It is the color of the source, the color of Mother
Energy. It makes a room seem larger than it really is but without
other additional colors it will look sterile. Its light radiates
a cold feeling, unless used with additional hues or tones of
All other colors fit white perfectly,
most of them fit black as well.
Color Candles and Symbols:
A very powerful method to work with color energies and symbols
at the same time involves the use of candles. The combination
of candle light energy, color energy and the different symbol
energy meanings is used to direct specific prayers, requests,
and healing work. I have made two separate lists here in order
to allow the choice of different combinations as you see fit.
The work of candles can be combined
with other methods, or stand independently on its own. Pay attention
to always use candles in a safe place. Here are some of the
well-known color meanings when working with candles, again,
your intuition here is very important. You can either use ready-made
candles, or make them yourself for specific purposes. Colors
can be combined here for increase of effect. Combinations of
a few color candles, or combinations of a few colors in one
candle are good. To increase this method`s effect, you might
want to use a mirror to reflect the light sent out. Simply put
one to two mirrors behind the lighted candles, it will
reflect the light and color in a wider angle.
Red is used for vitality
Orange is used for increasing creativity and emotional
Yellow is used for mental strength during studies
Green is used for physical healing and growth
Pink is used for sending love and healing
Blue is used for calmness, and peace
Purple is used for deeper healing levels, for helping
those who are in the process of crossing over
White is used for all purposes and purity
Black is used for inner centering
Gold is used for high level healing and psychics
Silver is used for protection
Copper is used for growth and financial prosperity.
Symbols can be added as well into
this method, either carved on the candle, or painted on with
colors. Here is a short list of popular symbols, you are welcome
to add any others you are familiar with :
Triangle - the triangle has the pyramid affect. It increases
the power of the life force, and healing forces.
Square - (not as in the 4 directions) the square stabilizes
the physiological system. It calms, grounds, and centers the
basic life force.
Four Directions - this is to use for balance with the
elements ( fire, water, air and earth), it brings into harmony
the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energies. It helps
to balance the electromagnetic field - the aura.
Pentagram - awakens one`s individual spiritual energies
to assist in healing process.
Six ray Star ( Star of David) - helps the healing process
to occur on all levels. The six ray star helps strengthen when
needed, and creates a powerful protective shield.
