Today I want to share directions for the Color Breathing Exercise featured in Nevill Drury’s book Creative Visualization. To practice this exercise choose the color healing you want to work with from the Healing Colors provided below.
1. Next visualize the color you have selected and continue until it is clear in your inner vision.
2. Imagine your entire body being bathed in this healing color, maintaining a pattern of breathing deeply, while visualizing the color drawn into your heart center with each inward breath.
3. Visualize the healing color spreading throughout your body and to the areas requiring more healing.
