pink bubble technique

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:

pink bubble technique1. Sit or lie down and relax.   Close your eyes and focus your mind on your breath.  Go deeper and deeper into relaxation.

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.

color turquoise healing properties

Turquoise color family variations: Aqua is creative, light-hearted, yet strong and individual; Aquamarine balances the mind and the emotions; Teal promotes spiritual advancement and commitment; Turquoise radiates the tranquility of blue, the balance and growth of green with the uplifting energy of yellow.

Turquoise color family is also associated with: refreshing, feminine, calming, sophisticated, energy, wisdom, serenity, wholeness, creativity, emotional balance, good luck, spiritual grounding, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty.

However, too much Turquoise can cause one to become over analytical, fussy, and egocentric, allowing one to let logic guide decision-making.  Too little Turquoise can cause one to become secretive, closed off, confused, sneaky, and even paranoid.





Seeing Color Purple Can Heal

March 27th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in COLORS

healing color of purple with crocus

The following poem reminds me how much seeing colors can be healing:

The Crocus

I saw a purple crocus today,

though it barely could be seen,

while all around was white,

and the landscape seemed to gleam.

I saw a purple crocus today,

the sky was bright and clear,

and yet I know it meant for me

that the spring season was near.

I saw a purple crocus today,

that protruded through the snow,

it triggered a moment of excitement,

and meant a lot for me to know.

≈ By Joseph T Renaldi

Purple promotes strength, is good for emotional problems, reducing pain, helps re-balance one’s life, is associated with imagination, and psychic inspiration.  LOVE THAT PURPLE!
