Energy and Color
All physical, intellectual and psychic processes. Our sensations, thoughts, feelings are linked to a chemical reaction occurring in the body.We are constantly consuming and creating energy within ourselves. Sometimes there is too much, sometimes it may be too little. Some colors emit a positive energy based on their chemical makeup ad others have an equalizing effect. By correctly using color when choosing crystals or manifesting with candle and herb magic; you can regulate the type and level of energy being put forth. This enables you to make of for a deficit or overabundance of energies.
Gemstones and Color
The intense or muted play of light within a gemstone can have a calming or stimulating effect. It can purify or heal; the frequency of light that stones emit are particularly important when invoking the power within. They have a direct influence on the bodies chemical processes. Stones consist of crystals and like us, they are made up of atoms. These atoms are in constant motion. However, because vibration and energy is not immediately visible they appear to be solid un-moving objects.Just as we can feel content or anxious in certain environments, you can also feel the positive or negative within stones for the same reason.
In the Indian Ayurvedic tradition it is taught that the health of mind, body and spirit is contingent upon a number of factors. Our thoughts, dreams, attitude (especially about work), environment, neighbors, pleasant and unpleasant sounds scents and colors these things influence the gemstones as well. All of the colors in the spectrum visible and in some cases invisible to us are in perfect harmony with the spectrum we ourselves omit. In ancient indigenous cultures they painted themselves bright colors to connect with the strength of their souls or a higher power. The many inner workings of colors effects overall cannot be expected to be learned over night. Like anything else it must be studied and fine tuned for your space, your intent an your purpose.
