Color Candle Rainbow Healing

Color Candle Rainbow Healing

Candle therapy can be used to unite the powers of mind, body, and spirit. Lilian Verner-Bonds shares in her book, The Complete Book of Color Healing, lighting a colored candle releases energy into the atmosphere.  The color vibration is absorbed into the auric field and transmitted into the physical body.  It is an interesting fact that the colors of our seven major chakras are also the rainbow colors.

The following exercise called, Super Rainbow Candle Healing, is found in the author’s book:

Color Candle Rainbow Healing1.  Place a candle for each of the seven chakra colors in a semi-circle in front of you starting from left to right (red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, indigo, & purple).  The candles can be placed on the floor or on a table.

2.   Sit quietly for a few moments in order to prepare yourself to receive. Light the candles, starting with red (Root Chakra) and ending with purple (Crown Chakra).

3.  Beginning with the central green candle (Heart Chakra), gaze upon each flame for one minute at a time. Then move to the red candle at the left followed by the purple candle on the right.  Continue by going to the orange then to the indigo. Complete the process by going to the yellow and  finishing with the light blue.  This  will take seven minutes. (See illustration for gazing order).

4.  While the rainbow candles remain burning, embrace all the colors.  Accept the guidance from your higher-self  as to which colors need revisiting.  Continue for another ten minutes, finishing with the green candle (Heart Chakra) to balance your system.Color Candle Rainbow Healing

5.  Extinguish the candles in order starting with the red ending with purple (It is recommended to use candle snuffer or home-made tin foil cone).  In candle healing it is suggested not to use your breath to blow out healing candles.

6.  Sit quietly for three minutes with your eyes closed, to complete healing.

7.  COLOR IS HEALING!!!

Color Mandalas for Color Therapy

“I awaken to the power of the mandala,
A sacred circle of light and energy,
A pathway to center—to my center and to the universal All,
A channel for healing body, mind, and spirit.” ~ author unknown

The Mandala (Sanskrit for “circle” or “completion”) has a long history and is recognized for its deep spiritual meaning and representation of wholeness.

Coloring Mandalas for Healing Therapy

  • The circle is a symbol of wholeness, continuity, connection, unity, harmony and the cycle of life.
  • Unlike other shapes, the circle flows and has no hard edges or angles.
  • Circles are believed to help individuals focus inward.

Coloring Mandalas

If you choose to color a mandala it will tap into your creativity without any need for artistic expertise. Mandalas are used universally  to promote healing and other positive states of being. Why? One explanation comes from its very design. The mandala is a circular matrix with a center point—a point from which all things are possible

If you are not ready to design an original mandala, internet sites have mandalas ready for coloring as a free copy or download.  It is always best to select colors intuitively when coloring a mandala. Listed below are colors and their symbolic meanings.Coloring Mandalas for Healing Therapy

RED for strength, high energy and passion
PINK for love, intuition and the feminine
ORANGE for creativity transformation,self-awareness and intuition
YELLOW for learning, wisdom, laughter and happiness

Winter Cellophane Color Sunbath

January 2nd, 2015 | Posted by Velda in COLORS

Winter Cellophane Color SunbathI love the color sunbath technique described in Color Energy How Color Can Transform Your Life, by Cristina Bornstein & Anthony Gill.  One can receive healing energy by sitting in front of a sunny colored glass window.

1.  We all can have the luxury, during the cold winter months, to purchase colored cellophane at our local art store and instantly create a colored glass window for an energy sunbath.  All we need to do is tape cellophane on the lower half of a window.  A 36 inch square sheet of your selected color is ideal, but a smaller size will work.

2.  This exercise requires a sunny day.  Determine what color you want to use. (Please refer below  to the Color Energy Healing Chart. It tells which colors are useful in helping heal various conditions).

 3.  Next sit in front of the window so that the sun is streaming through the cellophane onto your body.  Breathe deeply for 10 minutes or longer.

4.  This technique is used by color therapists to help heal physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual conditions.

Chakra Balancing Using Felt Swatches

If you are one that collects books, I would recommend looking for anything written by Ted Andrews.  He was an award winning author, gifted teacher and deeply respected in the alternative healing world.  The following is a very simple method of color balancing chakras with fabric swatches.  This can be found in his book, How to Heal With Color.  Before experiencing this exercise, you might have to visit your local craft store and pick up seven pieces of felt in the colors shown below.  After cutting out 3″ x 3″ squares from each of the color samples, you are ready to start a short version of  Ted Andrew’s Chakra Color Therapy:

Chakra Balancing Using Felt Swatches

1.  Choose a quiet undisturbed 10-15 minutes.  Lie down on the floor or bed.  Have your seven chakra swatches with you.

2.  Close your eyes and relax.  Now place all seven color swatches upon the chakra points of the body, as shown in the illustration above.

3.  Breathe deeply and allow your body to absorb the rainbow energies. Take several more deep breaths, focusing on each chakra and drawing the color from their swatch into your body.  Know that chakras are aligning and strengthening.  Feel yourself balancing, as you absorb these colors through your chakra centers.   Continue until you feel fully balanced, charged, and aligned.

Clouds of Color Healing TechniqueAre you ready to stretch your imagination and practice the following Hawaiian technique called ”Clouds of Color” described in Dr. Serge Kahili King’s book Instant Healing? 

This is a very simple exercise using your imagination and intention.  First familiarize yourself with the healing energy of the following colors.  Next, select the color of cloud you want to use for healing and begin to visualize this cloud wrapping around all of you or the part of your body that needs physical, emotional, or mental healing.  Intent, simply means imagining a specific healing effect that you want the color cloud to have.  Surrounded by bright orange or yellow can increase your strength and endurance.  A soft green or blue cloud can reduce swelling or relieve tension.  You can use color clouds and imagination for any healing needed!

Balancing Chakras with Color Exercise

Yes, I am sharing another chakra color balancing exercise today.  I can’t stress enough how easy one can align and balance their chakras by breathing in color.  Below is a chart of associative colors followed by a visual color balancing exercise recommended by American Artist Rose Arizmendi:

Chakra Color Balancing Exercise

 1.  Start with the first chakra located at the base of your spine. Visualize spinning this chakra and breathe the color red into this spinning wheel of energy.

2. Move up to the second chakra and spin this wheel while visualizing a bright juicy orange color filling this chakra. Focus on this orange color and breathe deeply, letting go of any unwanted energy.

3. Move to the third chakra; spin yellow lemon light into this area. Let go of any emotional energy that may be blocking this center. Feel this sunny warm yellow light calm and relax you. Bathe the stomach, liver, gallbladder and spleen with this color.

4. Next visualize a brilliant forest green color and spin this color into your heart chakra. Let this color fill you with the energy of unconditional love. Visualize this green light flowing throughout your body, healing and balancing the immune and endocrine systems.

5. When ready move up to the throat chakra and spin a bright blue in this center. Let this blue light remove any fears or misunderstandings. This is the chakra of communication on many different levels. Breathe deeply and bathe your lungs, vocal cords and bronchial tubes with this clear blue light.

6. Move gently upwards and begin to spin your third eye chakra. Visualize a deep indigo color filling this spinning wheel. Become aware of the Divine energy of this chakra.

7.  Now move up to the crown chakra and visualize violet light spinning within this center. Feel this light transmute anger into understanding, hate into love and fear into courage. Let compassion and love flow through your body. Allow this energy to heal and nourish you. Visualize yourself resonating in complete alignment.

Finish by becoming aware of all your chakra centers. How do they feel? When they feel balanced, visualize white light entering the top of your head and bring this light down through each chakra. Spin it around and shoot it back up through the chakras and out through your crown chakra. Allow this white light to form a bubble of light around your body, surrounding yourself with beautiful protective light throughout the day.

What’s Your Emotion Color Today?

January 30th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in COLORS

What Is Your Emotion Color Today?

What Is Your Emotion Color Today?Studies show that the colors a person surrounds themselves with can have an effect on that person’s emotional state. Colors have certain wavelengths, which can be felt and experienced.  Emotions have certain wavelengths, which you can also feel and directly experience.  We describe certain emotions (seeing red, feeling blue, green with envy), there’s no denying that color and mood are inextricably linked.

Colors can make us feel happy or sad… they can make us feel hungry or relaxed.  Here is today’s opportunity (not challenge).  Look at the Color Emotion Chart below and select where you are today.  Are you satisfied? GREAT! If not, would you want to change your emotion?  What color could you introduce through either your wardrobe, selecting a designated colored gemstone for the day, or meditating on your new chosen color to help change your mood.

Golden Crystal Shower Meditation

Today I took a lovely walk with my daughter through the botanical garden. The January sun was shining through the trees with the strong reminder color is a positive source of energy.  The authors Simon Lilly & Lilian Verner-Bonds demonstrates the power of color in their book, Crystal & Colour Healing Using the Powers of Nature for Health and Harmony.  One of the meditations in the book is called ‘The Golden Crystal Shower’.  The authors tell us that the color gold is used to lift the spirits and encourage the inner lights to burn brightly within us.

Golden Crystal Show MeditationThe following is my version of Golden Crystal Shower Meditation:

1.  Make yourself comfortable. Take a deep breath in and on exhaling imagine lying in a meadow, surrounded with trees and a stream nearby.  A gentle breeze moves through the trees and ripples the water.

2. Visualize looking up at the blue sky and begin to focus on the shimmering sun-gold rays showering through the trees.  Allow these sunrays to vibrate gently as they touch your body and turn to dew drops that are absorbed by your skin.

3. Feel an internal warmth deep inside you as the golden hue surges around your body, creating a wonderful glow.  When you are ready take a deep breath in and on exhaling open your eyes. Your mind and body have now been recharged and revitalized.
