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.

Chrysocolla teaching stone & more

Chrysocolla is a teaching stone, that helps you communicate the right words when needed. It is a stone of peace, increased wisdom, and discretion. It promotes level headedness, encouraging clarity of thought and a neutral, cool attitude during turbulence. It can be used to decrease nervousness and irritability. It is empowering of the feminine energies and is associated with the solar plexus, heart, and brow chakras. It calms, cleanses, and re-energizes these Chakras.

Chrysocolla teaching stone & moreThe mix of greens and blues acts on the heart and throat chakras, reaching up to the deeper blue of the brow chakra and the related minor chakra at the base of the skull ( the medulla oblongata). This energy point clears blockages in the emotions and belief systems.

EXERCISE: Place a piece of Chrysocolla at the heart, throat, base of skull, or in the center of the forehead to create a rearrangement of energies that results in a clearer view of emotional issues.  Start by focusing on a problem or situation you wish to understand better.  Then relax and let the stone help bring resolutions to your conscious mind.(This exercise is explained in Healing with Crystals and Chakra Energies by Sue & Simon Lilly).

Internationally renowned author and teacher Shakti Gawain, describes the Pink Bubble Visualization Technique in her book Creative Visualization – Using the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life. Learning to visualize is one of the most empowering skills you can learn when it comes to healing your body. The more detailed the visual process is, the more effective the results will be.

How to Use the Pink Bubble Technique:

2. Imagine something that you would like to manifest.  Imagine that it has already happened. See, feel and sense. Picture it as clearly as you can.

3. In your mind’s eye, place this vision or goal inside a pink bubble. Pink is associated with the heart. It represents your heart’s desire.

6. Let go of the bubble and imagine it floating off into the universe, containing your vision. This symbolizes that you are  emotionally “letting go” of it.  The bubble and its contents are free  to float around in the universe, attracting and gathering energy for its manifestation.

Pair White/Black For Healing Combo

April 25th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in COLORS


Both white and black contains the entire light spectrum for color therapy.  White strengthens, cleanses, and purifies the entire energy system.  It can awaken our creativity.  It is a color that amplifies the effects of other colors.  Black is protective, grounding, and calms extremely sensitive individuals.  Black is most effective when used in conjunction with white which balances our polarities putting life and its craziness into proper perspective.  Black is always better used in combination with another color because often too much black can aggravate emotional and mental conditions.  I recommend How to Heal With Color, by Ted Andrews, to learn more about color therapy.
