Color Magic

Colors can enhance any healing modality or setting. You can use colored crystals, candles, sheer cloths, or even lights. Or you might fill a colored glass with water and set it in the window for a few hours, to empower the water with the energy of that color. And, of course, combining color therapy with other modalities, such as matching crystals, only increases the potency of a color's vibrational rate. Below is a list of colors along with their most common uses. Think of ways you can use them to enhance your life or healing practices.

For example, a triangle amplifies healing force energies and increases the power of whatever color you are using. A Square is grounding and stabilizes as it calms the entire physiological system. The Cross balances the physical energies with emotional and spiritual energies. The Pentagram grounds, strengthens, and calls forth spiritual energies into the healing process.
