Qualities of Light

Today is Tuesday, May 7, 2013.

I surround myself with circles of light that no negative energy can cross. 

This illustration is the best I have ever seen to illustrate what we mean by surrounding ourselves with light.  Some people imagine themselves in a bubble, a cocoon, or a dome, while others simply imagine circles of light that act like a kind of force-field through which negative energy cannot pass. Some imagine a ray of light from God that enters their body through the crown of the head.  Other people imagine a circle of mirrors with the reflective side turned outward so that negative energies bounce back to the sender.  When I surround myself with light, I also hear an inner sound that is a bit like the little twinkle sound that the computer makes in the Star Trek movies.  Some people I know surround the airplane or car they are riding in for protection when they travel.

When we surround ourselves with light, we are not really building walls.  Rather, we are actually raising our own vibrations, and when our vibrations no longer match that of negative emotions, people, or situations, we can rise above them, and they will no longer affect us.

It doesn't really matter what visualization you use.  Choose one that is comfortable for you, and feel free to modify visualizations that you may hear or read about to suit yourself.   You can also protect loved ones, particularly children who are under your care.

Different colors of light have different desirable qualities.  White light is actually all the colors combined.  You probably did a science experiment in school using a prism that refracted the white light from the sun into the colors of the rainbow.  White light seems to be an all-purpose color that is regarded as the highest form of spiritual protection available.  (It's no accident that evil is associated with darkness, and that we speak of "heavenly light.") 

Various colors of light can be used as therapy for a variety of reasons.  All you have to do is find an image with the color you need and stare at it for a few minutes.  The easiest way to do this is to go to Google images and type in a color, then just select and download the image or images you wish to use.  If you know how to make your own screen saver or slide show, you can do this using several images of the same color.

Clear, bright red can help us achieve vitality, courage and self-confidence.  Be sure not to use a dark, muddy shade, but a clear, bright shade of red.  Gazing at this color may also help when you are anemic or tired and need energy, or when you are cold and have poor blood circulation.

Bright orange is another color you can use if you need energy.  It is known as a healing color, especially for the physical body.  Orange energy may help you increase your appetite, and it may also help with stomach disorders, skin problems, asthma, or allergies. It can also help calm and steady you when you are nervous.

Physically, there is no such thing as pink light. Pink is actually white light with the green spectrum removed.  However, our brains process this as the shade we call pink.  This color can be seen in the inner worlds and it can be used in color therapy.  The color pink has a calming effect that has been documented, which is why prisons and the locker rooms of the "away team" are painted pink.  This color can help to open our hearts to unconditional love.

Yellow is associated with clarity of thought, logic, efficiency and organization. It helps children to perceive and understand, which makes it a great color for a child's bedroom or an elementary school classroom. Yellow has a powerful effect on the nervous system, and helps the left brain – our creative side – to function.  Yellow may help alleviate sadness.  It can also help with parasites, skin problems, and weight issues.  It is reportedly beneficial when you suffer from ulcers or poor digestion, as it affects the digestive organs: stomach, liver, spleen and gallbladder. Yellow promotes good humor, flexibility, self awareness, self control and keeping personal power.

Golden light is something that you can see in meditation.  It is said that when the Third Eye opens, you can see golden light.  Try taking a shower or bath in golden light or opening a book on the inner planes that shines with a golden light.  It's no accident that heaven is often described as golden.

Green is another healing color, that is associated with balance and harmony.  It is also the color of love. Visualizing green may help when want to soothe your nerves, or when you need to find peace and harmony.  It is also great for stimulating creativity.  Green can help when you have tension headaches or digestive problems.  It can also help those who suffer from hay fever, ulcers, influenza, malaria , colds, sexual disorders and cancer. It can also help those with various conditions caused by inflammation.  Green preserves and strengthens eyesight, as it is the most restful color for the eyes.

Blue represents the spiritual aspects of our lives, and how we connect with Spirit.  It gives us a sense of calmness, peace, serenity, and beauty.  It's a good color to use when we are suffering from stress.  Blue may help when you have throat problems, when you have trouble sleeping, or when you have suffered a shock.  It also helps with menstrual problems, and with eye, ear, nose and throat problems.  It can be beneficial when you have had a fever. . Blue is associated with reliability, gentleness, kindness, integrity, honesty, loyalty, endurance and commitment.

The color indigo gives power to the pituitary gland, which is linked to the nervous system, mental abilities, and psychic potential in human beings.  When the pineal gland is stimulated, the Third Eye opens.  The physical eyes and ears are also influenced by indigo.  This color can help when you need to find inner balance, when you have hearing problems, and when you have trouble sleeping.  It can calm the nerves and is beneficial to the lymphatic system.

Violet light connects us with the  Divine.  Violet is helpful in the treatment of nervous and emotional disturbances, arthritis, and acute cases of consumption and insomnia. Violet enhances spiritual power and creativity.  It can help clear an existing situation and help you strengthen your spiritual values.  :-)
