Crown Chakra Meditation Revisited

This post first appeared March 2, 2013.  I find when working with clients that many times their Crown Chakra needs balancing.  The following lovely meditation for balancing the Crown Chakra was introduced by Sue Windred.   This would be an excellent chakra meditation to record in your own voice, reading slowly and allowing for pauses where appropriate.

Crown Chakra Meditation Revisited(The author’s spaces below indicate pauses).

“Sit back comfortably      with your back straight,      take a deep breath      and breathe out all your tension.    Imagine yourself on a grassy patch      on top of a hill. Looking up    you see a beautiful rainbow      in the clear blue sky.     All the colors are clear    yet blending into each other.    As you gaze at the rainbow    you feel it coming towards you.     You watch     as it gets closer     until it is above your head.    Sitting there    you feel the colors absorbing in through your Crown Chakra.

Feel the red going down to your Root Chakra.    The orange going down to your Sacral Center.   The yellow going down to your Solar Plexus.     The green going down to the heart.  The blue going to the throat.   The indigo going to third eye.   And the violet to your crown.  

Feel all the colors     absorbing     into all your chakras.     Sit for awhile     continue to take in all the colors.       When you are ready      open your eyes,      feeling relaxed     but alive.”

This chakra balancing meditation can be used whenever and as often as you like.


Remove Fear Freom Body With Color

There are many ways to introduce and use color for helping to remove fear from the body.  Below is a Color Chart showing what fear is held by different body locations and what color to use.  Here are simple suggestions how to introduce colors recommended for specific body fear:

Remove Fear From Body With Color

1.   Pick up color felt swatches at local craft store.  These can be cut to any size, however, (no smaller than  4″ x 4″ works best).  Take some quiet time and place your felt on the needed area(s).

2.  Take time to relax and place appropriate colored stones on the areas that need attention is also very helpful.  I would recommend repeating as often as needed.

3.  Try relaxing during quiet time and practice visualizing breathing color needed to help heal the body fear you are holding.  There is nothing wrong with working with all three of these suggestions together.

Your Personal Year Number & Color

February 4th, 2017 | Posted by Velda in COLORS | GEMSTONES | NUMBER POWER

Calculating Personal Year NumberI am fascinated with the possible messages from numbers and decided to share how to calculate your Personal Year Vibration Number as shown in Louise Hay’s book, Numbers & Colors.  First we need to know what the Universal Number is for 2017, by adding the four digits:  2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 (1 + 0 = #1).  In numerology, you continue reducing numbers until you have a single digit.  The Universal Year #1 represents the start of a fresh new cycle – a new 9 year cycle of creativity, learning and growth.

Calculating Personal Year Number

Calculating Your Personal Year Number

Add together the birth month + the birth day + current Universal Year = Personal Year Vibration Number. Remember to reduce the result to a single digit by adding together the digits of the sum and doing so repeatedly until the sum is less than 10.  Here is an example: 5 (for May) +12 (for birth day) + 1 (Universal Year 2017) = 18 (1+8 = #9  Personal Year Vibration).  If your calculations for personal vibrations total an 11 or 22, do not reduce these numbers to a 2 or 4.  The numbers 11 and 22 are considered Master Numbers. They indicate that you are being given an opportunity to operate for that period on a higher vibration.  Write them as “11/2″ or “22/4″.   You then have a choice of being the reduced 2 or 4 rather than 11/2 or 22/4 (see options below).

Your Personal Year Number & Color

Following are snippets found in Louise Hay’s book,  Numbers & Colors, on each Personal Year:

#1  Personal Year:  Color-Red, Gem-Ruby, Key Word-Beginning, Affirmation: “I break new ground and begin new ventures!”

#2 Personal Year:  Color-Orange, Gem-Moonstone, Key Word-Cooperate, Affirmation: “I trust the process of life, & unfold in Divine right order!”

#3 Personal Year:  Color-Yellow, Gem-Topaz, Key Word-Enjoyment, Affirmation: “I Love Life, and the joy of living!”

#4 Personal Year:  Color-Green, Gems-Emerald/Jade, Key Word-Practical, Affirmation: “I turn everything into an opportunity!”

#5 Personal Year:  Color-Blue, Gems-Turquoise/Aquamarine, Key Word-Change, Affirmation:  “I welcome change and expand my boundaries!”

#6 Personal Year:  Color-Indigo, Gems-Pearl/Sapphire/Lapis, Key Word-Responsibility, Affirmation:  “I accept my responsibilities with love and joy!”

#7 Personal Year:  Color-Purple-Violet, Gem-Amethyst, Key Word-Faith, Affirmation:  “I enjoy the inner quest and find many answers!”

#8 Personal Year:  Colors-Beige/Brown/Pink, Gem-Diamond, Key Word-Achievement, Affirmation: “I am the prosperous, successful executive of my world!”

#9 Personal Year:  Colors-All Pastels, Gem/Precious Metal-Opal/Gold, Key Word-Completion, Affirmation:  “I am satisfied, fulfilled, and complete!”

#11/2 Personal Year (Master Number):  Colors-Black/White or Pearl Gray, Precious Metal-Silver, Key Word-Intuition, Affirmation:  “I listen to the inner voice of wisdom!”

#22/4 Personal Year (Master Number):  Colors-Coral/Russet, Gem/Precious Metal-Coral/Copper, Key Word-Greatness, Affirmation:   ”I work for the good of the planet, and I am blessed!”

Candle Colors Healing Chart

December 29th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in COLORS

Candle Colors Healing Chart

Candle Colors are based on the same principle as that of color therapy. Different colors have different frequencies which, in turn, have different effects on the human psyche.  Candles can also be fragrant and the different fragrances can  reflect differently on one’s feelings and emotions.   We have looked at candle exercises and meditations in the past.  Today I wanted to share the following Candle Color Chart and each color’s meaning and use for easy references in the future.Candle Color Healing Chart

Reminder:  Never use the breath to extinguish a candle flame. This affects the frequency of the ending part of the candle burning session. Use a metal cup or flame snuffer made for this purpose.

Vegetables/Fruits Ground Root Chaka

July 24th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in CHAKRAS | COLORS

Eating Red Grounds Root Chakra

When we are feeling ungrounded, it is the best time to look at what foods will help balance our Root Chakra.  Author Deanna M. Minich, Ph.D.,C.N. shares a great deal of knowledge about the healing vibrations of food in her book Chakra Foods for Optimum Health.  She points out that root vegetables transfer grounding energy to our body through the Root Chakra.  Much like the conditions they grow in, root vegetables help us to nestle into our internal, lower core and become connected to earth’s vibration.

Root Vegetables Ground Root Chakra

Even though the author points out that root vegetables and red meat are the most effective grounding foods, red fruits and vegetables also provide the vibrational rate needed to restore our ability to ground.   What is so amazing is that this vibration can be absorbed visually by both looking at red fruits and vegetables as well as physically consuming them.

Vegetables/Fruit Ground Root Chakra

Remember when our mothers said to us as children, “Eat Your Vegetables”.  The author writes in her book, “If you are struggling with being grounded and feeling safe, eating foods to support these functions are beneficial.”  She suggests that we incorporate Root Chakra grounding foods at every meal so that our daily, earthly existence feels complete.Vegetables/Fruits Ground Root Chakra

Bridge To Healing-Your Core Color

July 16th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in COLORS

Bridge to Healing - Your Core Color

It is so fascinating to think about the vibrational energy of color.  In the book Cell-Level Healing-The Bridge from Soul to Cell, author Joyce Whitely Hawkes, Ph.D., shares about our Core Color.  She describes it as a beacon of inner light that is one of the sources of healing for our cells, translating the frequency vibrations of health to the body.  The author illustrates some Core Colors shown below and possible corresponding attributes.  You may also find other interpretations regarding the healing qualities of the different colors.

Bridge to Healing - Your Core Colors

I have included several methods that the author suggests to use when wanting to identify your Core Color.  It might be helpful to know that The Core Color is perceived as a cylinder of light above the full length of the spine.

Bridge to Healing - Your Core ColorIdentifying Bridge To Healing

•  During meditation, you may see a bright color inside your head.  Deepen your meditation to focus on the inside of your body in the area just above the spine.  If the color persists, you can work with is as your Core Color.

•  At times, you may be flooded with compassion, clarity, or insight, or all of these qualities at once.  If there is an accompanying color, the quality and the color will be linked vibrationally.

•  Someone else may become aware of your Core Color (for example during a healing session).  When you are in touch with your true Core Color, you will feel joyful, peaceful, and full of energy.

•  You may want to construct your own chart and notice your personal relationship with color.

Green— Use to increase vitality and stamina

Orange—Use to sooth ragged nerves

Red— Is best for all healing.Color Candle Healing

Guidelines For Candle Burning:

1.   The color you choose is determined by what is needed.

2.  Candles should be rubbed, in one direction only, with a white all cotton fabric to rid any accumulated negativity.  Use healing candles for only healing.

3.  Burn candles away from flammable objects. Never use the breath to extinguish a candle flame. This affects the frequency of the ending part of the candle session.  Use a metal cup or flame snuffer.

4.  100-percent-beeswax candles have a uniquely fresh smell, which is distinctly different from paraffin.

Color Candle HealingHealing Color Candle Burning Treatment:

1.  Recommend starting with a short meditation to clear energies to help you focus.

2.  Choose the appropriate color, remember red is good for all healing sessions.

3.  Arrange candles in a triangle formation.  Sit in the middle of the triangle.  State your intent of healing clearly.

4.  Take three deep slow breaths.

5.  Begin to concentrate and visualize the healing taking place.  Usually 10 to 15 minutes will be enough time inside the candle grid.

Closing Candle Healing Treatment:Color Candle Healing

1.  When finished with session,  extinguish the flame of each candle by using a metal cup or flame snuffer.

2.  Keep in mind that some candle healing might need to be repeated over a period of days.

3.  Place candles in an area that will not be disturbed. Color Candle Healing should always be performed in a low traffic area.

4.  Do not choose a place where there is a TV, radio noise or disturbances of any kind.

Color Energizing the Spinal Chakras

July 8th, 2015 | Posted by Velda in CHAKRAS | COLORS

Color Energizing The Spinal Chakras

Energizing the chakras can be accomplished with a simple hands-on visualization technique found in The Complete Book of Color Healing by Lilian Verner-Bonds.  The chakras are often described as a rotating wheel or vortex of energy.  In the following exercise you may find it helpful to visualize them as such:

Color Energizing the Spinal Chakras1.  Close your eyes and visualize the color corresponding to the chakra you wish to enliven.

2.  Place both hands over your eyes and visualize that particular color flowing into the palms of your hands and energizing them.

3.  Now put both hands over the chakra area on the front of your body and visualize the color following into the body, directing the color through to the spinal chakra point. (See illustration)

4.  Repeat the same procedure for any or all of the remaining chakras, usually for three minutes at a time, to align, restore, harmonize, and balance, as desired.

5.  Remember, this simple exercise  can be used to give an overall boost to the system, focus healing on a specific area of the body, or to strengthen the dimension of life associated with a particular chakra.
