In metaphysics, Aura refers to the energy field emanating from the surface of a person or object. This emanation is visualized as an outline of cascading color and may be held to represent soul vibrations, chakra emergence, or a reflection of surrounding energy fields.
Auras may be viewed by the naked eye, though some psychics, like Edgar Cayce, believe this ability weakens with age. Focused training may improve one's ability to see auras. Layers of aura are separate and distinct yet connected to all the remaining layers. In the books of Carlos Castaneda auras are referred to as luminous cocoons.
Modern New Age metaphysics identify the aura as electromagnetic fields. The existence of electromagnetic fields around every object in the known world is a scientifically proven fact. What is debatable is whether or not humans can see these electromagnetic fields as colors with the naked eye. This claim is considered paranormal because devices that sense electromagnetic fields at magnitudes many times smaller than that which allegedly exists in auras have recorded nothing.
However, these energy fields are sometimes claimed to be documented by a rare form of photography called Kirlian photography.
The test would involve the aura reader standing on one side of a room with an opaque partition separating them from a number of slots which may contain either actual people or mannequins. All that would have to be done is that the aura reader would have to consistently be able to tell which were real people and which were not.
Auras vibrate to different colors, sounds, and light frequencies. The color spectrum varies with one's physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual states.
When I do a spiritual reading with someone, I always check their aura first. If the aura sways back and forth, the person has a chemical imbalance, due to drugs, medication, drinking, a chemical imbalance in the body.
When I look at a photo of a person who has no aura - or the aura appears black - I know the person has crossed over - in part - or totally - as their physical body no longer has an electromagnetic energy field.
Your aura usually consist of more than one color at a time.
It can extend out very far or remain close to the body, which occurs when the person is protecting themselves form someone or something.
Some people can psychically look at the subject and see images within the person's aura. These images may include symbols/archetypes, people, digits, or even another aspect of the person's soul that is coming through in their third dimensional aura from another realm.
When two people have just been lovers, they will show up in each other auras, the color of their auras depending on the nature of their relationship.
When people have done healing work together, or shared physical contact, they will share a common auric field for a period of time as they have merged their electromagnetic energies.
Auras can be seen physically, or sensed psychically, or both.
have the subject stand in front of a white background and look to the side of their body - either side is fine.
Daylight is often the best light as the sun's rays are full spectrum.
If you watch the person for a minute, you will see their electromagnetic energies as sort of wavy lines of energies. This looks a lot like the energy you see when you are watching an airplane taking off in a movie.
Please do not strain you eyes. Relax. You might want to let your eyes go a little out of focus while you are looking for an aura.
You may only see the aura for a few seconds, then it will disappear.
After you see that energy, you may also see or sense a color frequency, maybe two or three colors, in the aura.
After several minutes you should be able to see some sort of energy field around the person, even if you cannot determine the color.
Remember that auras change all the time according to the person's mood and environment.
As with all psychic and spiritual tools, learning to read auras seems easy for some people while others need lost of practice.
The color of your aura is determined by your emotions, physical surroundings, spiritual work you are doing, items in the room, such as crystals which can magnify or change the colors of any aura.
Anything that can affect an electromagnetic field can affect a change in one's aura.
As everything that is in our reality is created from electromagnetic energy, everything has an aura - plants, animals, etc.
When you are working as a healer, you are bringing balance to the person's electromagnetic field.
You should observe the person slowly then determine if they have holes in their aura. It would look as if the electromagnetic energies had suddenly stopped.
This will tell you where there is a problem or imbalance in their physical body.
Is better to discuss the problem with the person first. All physical illness comes from the emotional which created the problem in the first place.
We must find the psychological cause of the problem first, to determine if the person actually wants to be healed on an emotional and soul level. If they are they are not ready, the healing and balancing can only last for a sort time and will revert back, or manifest in another area of the body. All healing must be done on the soul level first!
You can use your hands in a slow sweeping motion over the part of the aura where the energy (chi) does not appear to flow properly.
As you move your hands across the person's aura - you should both experience some sort of change in the energy flow.
You do not touch the person--just the auric field of that person. This healing technique goes to Therapeutic Touch.
If you would like to see your own aura, find a mirror that is in a well lit room. Relax. Look at your head or head and shoulder area. Focus on one side of your head. Soon you should be able to see the electromagnetic energies as a field of light - around your head.
Do you want to feel the electromagnetic energies coming from your body? Try holding the palms of your hand facing each other - about two inches apart. Wait a few second. You will feel something. If you hands are nervous and cold, that will hamper the energies.
Once you begin to feel the sensation of electromagnetic energies between your palms, move them slowly to and fro. You will feel the movement of your aura. Look between your hands to see the electromagnetic energies, your aura.
Try moving your palms further and further apart slowly. See how far you can go before you no longer feel the 'pull'. Remember to check periodically by moving your hands slightly and slowly.
Now try pointing your fingers towards each other and feel those energies. Again move your fingertips to and fro.
You can repeat this with another person.
Aura energies are linked to colors, the chakra system, musical tones/notes, as they all resonate to the same frequency. Sound, light and color are all interconnected at source.
I have had fun changing my aura while taking an Aura or Kirlian Photo. Meditation or working with anything that can enhance your electromagnetic energy fields will raise your frequency and move you to a higher frequency color of light. In other words - you hold a few clear quartz crystals and meditate--->take your picture----> it will have a clear white tone unless you have a serious medical problem. So as you see all things are connected by the flow of the electromagnetic energy fields that create our reality.
Reality is a consciousness hologram that allows one to vicariously move through linear time to experience the full gamut of emotions. It is a laced with metaphors to help bridge the gap between physical reality and higher frequency consciousness. The goal of crossing the rainbow bridge is the return to conscious awareness, understanding who you are and why you are here. You are not a physical being having a spiritual experience, but a spark of the light and energy spiraling its consciousness into a physical body to learn. This is the spark you see out of the periphery of your eye at times, who seeks reunion of self somewhere 'over the rainbow'. The metaphor of 'the pot of gold' at the end of the rainbow refers to the return to consciousness in the alchemy of time.
Reality is created by sound, light, and color frequencies which create grids or a rainbow bridge that allows human consciousness to experience through spiraling consciousness or sacred geometry
Colors have frequencies. As you move through the color spectrum of the rainbow bridge your frequency experiences at different levels. The higher you go on the ROYGBIV scale, the faster your consciousness moves along with your ability to see beyond the physical which is the color red, or the slowest moving frequency of light/color.
The Rainbow Bridge is also known as 'Antahkarana' - a Sanskrit term. Translated literally it means that which acts or works between. It is like a spiritual filament of light that is built like a spider builds his web, hence the spiderweb effect that links as all to a central source of creation. It bridges the vibrations of the physical with that of higher light - or faster moving frequencies of light which we refer to as the spiritual realms and beyond.
The rainbow bridge is sometimes thought of as a DNA ladder - Jacob's Ladder.
The journey over the rainbow bridge is the journey into higher awareness. It is the journey home, to OZ - everything is spiraling back to Zero Point. 'O' - Zero - completion of the cycle of time. Many believe that time is coming soon, perhaps in 2012.
Place a diagonal line through the letter 'Z' and you create an hourglass or time. Merge the top triangle into the bottom triangle of the hourglass and you have the Star of David or Merkaba counter rotating fields through which consciousness moves and experiences in our virtual reality experiment in time and emotion. Flower of Life - Tree of Life - Qabbalah.
It is the soul reunion of you physical with your Twin Flame merging into one at the end of time. It is the feeling of being reunited with that part of you that makes you whole - the part that remains over the rainbow bridge - attached to you through frequency - or through a thread, if you will, that you sense will merge with you at some point in the not-too-distant future.
Everything is made up of electromagnetic energy vibrating at different frequencies that correspond to sound, light and color. We are drawn to the colors needed to create balance in our lives, the goal in all healing. Colors attract ... certain clothing and accessories, colors in our homes, and even the foods we eat.
Colors are frequency wavelengths that we connect with based on grid (matrix) attraction. Primary colors following a spectrum called ROYGBIV or the rainbow spectrum.
Red is any of a number of similar colors evoked by light consisting predominantly of the longest wavelengths of light discernible by the human eye, in the wavelength range of roughly 625-740 nm. Longer wavelengths than this are called infrared, or below red and cannot be seen by the naked human eye. Red is used as one of the additive primary colors of light, complementary to cyan, in RGB color systems. Red is also one of the subtractive primary colors of RYB color space but not CMYK color space.
In human color psychology, red is associated with heat, energy and blood, and emotions that "stir the blood", including anger, passion, and love.
Red is any of a number of similar colors evoked by light consisting predominantly of the longest wavelengths of light discernible by the human eye, in the wavelength range of roughly 630-700 nm. Longer wavelengths than this are called infrared, or below red and cannot be seen by human eyes.
Red's wavelength has been an important factor in laser technologies as red lasers, used in early compact disc technologies, are being replaced by blue lasers, as red's longer wavelength causes the laser's recordings to take up more space on the disc than blue lasers. Red light is also used to preserve night vision in low-light or night-time situations, as the rod cells in the human eye aren't sensitive to red. Red is used as one of the additive primary colors of light, complementary to cyan, in RGB color systems. Red is also one of the subtractive primary colors of RYB color space but not CMYK color space.
One common use of red as an additive primary color is in the RGB color model. Because "red" is not by itself standardized, color mixtures based on red are not exact specifications of color either. In order to produce exact colors the color red needs to be defined in terms of an absolute color space such as sRGB. As used in computer monitors and television screens, red is very variable, but some systems may apply color correction (so that a standardized "red" is produced that is not in fact full intensity of only the red colorant).
A red filter used in black and white photography increases contrast in most scenes. For example, combined with a polarizer, it can turn the sky black. Films simulating the effects of infrared film (such as Ilford's SFX 200) do so by being much more sensitive to red than to other colors. Red illumination was (and sometimes still is) used as a "safelight" while working in a darkroom, as it does not expose most photographic paper and some films. Though many more modern darkrooms use an amber safelight, red illumination is closely associated with the darkroom in the public mind.
The word red comes from the Old English read. Further back, the word can be traced to the Proto-Germanic rauthaz and the Proto-Indo European root reudh-.
This is the only color word which has been traced to an Indo-European root.
In Sanskrit, the word rudra means red. In the English language, the word red is associated with the color of blood, certain flowers (i.e. roses), and ripe fruits (i.e. apples, cherries). Fire is also strongly connected, as is the sun and the sky at sunset.
Healthy people are often said to have a redness to their skin color (as opposed to be appearing pale). After the rise of socialism in the mid-19th century, red was to describe revolutionary movements. The word is also obviously associated with anything of the color occupying the lower end of the visible light spectrum, such as red hair or red soil.
Red Indians is a British term for Native Americans, American terms for this ethnic group include redskin, redhead and red man, though they are not the preferred terms.
In astronomy, stars of spectral type M (the stars with the coolest temperature) are classified as red stars.
Mars is called the Red Planet because of the reddish color imparted to its surface by the abundant iron oxide present there. Astronomical objects which are moving away from the observer exhibit a red shift.
Jupiter's surface displays a Great Red Spot, a football-shaped area south of the planet's equator. Astronomers believe the spot to be some kind of storm.
Oxygenated blood is red due to the presence of oxygenated hemoglobin.
Red light is the first to be absorbed by sea water, so that many fish and marine invertebrates that appear bright red are black in their native habitat.
When used about animal coloration red usually refers to a brownish, reddish-brown or ginger color. In this sense it is used to describe coat colors of reddish-brown cattle and dogs, and in the names of various animal species or breeds such as red fox, red squirrel, red deer, Robin Redbreast, Red Grouse, Red Knot, Redstart, Redwing, Red Setter, Red Devon cattle etc.
The usage for animal color appears similar to that for red ochre, red hair and Red Indian.
Red appears to be rarely used in names of animals which are a brighter blood-red or scarlet color (Carmine Bee-eater, Scarlet Tanager). When used for flowers, red often refers to purplish (red deadnettle, red clover, red helleborine) or pink (red campion, red valerian) colors.
Aggression, anger, blood, blushing, stop, Communism, courage, danger, guilt, energy, fire, hate, hell, honor, leadership, passion, socialism, sacrifice, sex, sin, violence, negativity, warning.
A biblical example is found in Isaiah: "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow." Also, The Scarlet Letter an 1850 American novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, features a woman in a Puritan New England community who is punished for adultery with ostracism, her sin represented by a red letter 'A' sewn into her clothes. This all comes from a general Hebrew view inherited by Christianity which associates red with the blood of murder, as well as with guilt in general.
Another popular example of this is in the phrase "caught red-handed", meaning either caught in an act of crime or caught with the blood of murder still on one's hands. At one point, red was associated with prostitutes, or now, with brothels (red-light districts).
In Roman Catholicism, red represents wrath, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. In Christianity, Satan is usually depicted as colored red and/or wearing a red costume in both iconography and popular culture. Statistics have shown that red cars are more likely to be involved in accidents.
The color red is associated with lust, passion, love, and beauty as well. The association with love and beauty is possibly related to the use of red roses as a love symbol. Both the Greeks and the Hebrews considered red a symbol of love, as well as sacrifice. Psychological research has shown that men find women who are wearing red more attractive.
Red is also used as a symbol of courage and sacrifice, as in blood spilt in sacrifice or courage in the face of lethal danger. Examples of this are found in the flags of many nations including the United States, as well as in the novel The Red Badge of Courage, in which a soldier in the American Civil War discovers the meaning of courage.
Besides the association with guilt previously mentioned, in Christianity, red represents the color of Christian martyrs who suffered death for their faith. It is sometimes used for Holy Thursday and during Eastertide, and red green and white is the color scheme of Christmas. In Roman Catholic tradition it is used for all feast days of Christian martyrs as well as Palm Sunday in anticipation of the death of Jesus.
Along the same lines, red is associated in Roman mythology with the god of war, Mars. A Roman general receiving a triumph had his entire body painted red in honor of his achievement.The phrase "red-blooded" describes someone who is audacious, robust, or virile.
In English heraldry, red (called gules) denoted ardent affection or love, while crimson (blood-color) stood for boldness, enthusiasm, or impetuosity.
Red catches people's attention, and is often used either in a negative way to indicate danger and emergency, or in a positive way in advertising to gain more viewers, or in nature, as a ripe fruit announces its readiness with its red color. Several studies have indicated that red carries the strongest reaction of all the colors, with the level of reaction decreasing gradually with orange, yellow, and white, respectively. Because of this, scientists have repeatedly recommended red for warning signals, labels, and signs. Because of these recommendations, red has seen widespread use as a danger signal, in stop signs, to warn people of extreme heat or flammability, and even to signal warnings in sports such as soccer.
Red may represent fire and so may symbolize the presence of God.
In Christianity, red is the liturgical color for Pentecost. Also, in the Catholic Church red is the color of a martyr.
In Islam red is the color for sacrificement and courage. Many Islamic states have it as a sign of the courage of Muslims and the sacrifice of their lives for what is good.
In metaphysics red connects with the root chakra.
Alice Bailey developed a system called the Seven Rays, where she classified humans into seven different metaphysical psychological types, the "sixth ray" of "love-devotion" is represented by the color red. People who have this metaphysical psychological type are said to be "on the Red Ray".
Psychics who claim to be able to observe the aura with their third eye report that a red aura is associated with a love of sports and physical exercise.
In China, red is the symbol of fire and the south (both south in general and Southern China specifically). It carries a largely positive connotation, being associated with courage, loyalty, honor, success, fortune, fertility, happiness, passion, and summer. In Chinese cultural traditions, red is associated with weddings (where brides traditionally wear red dresses) and red paper is also frequently used to wrap gifts of money or other things. Special red packets called hong bao as in Mandarin or lai see as in Cantonese - are specifically used during the Chinese New Year to give monetary gifts. On the more negative end, obituaries are traditionally written in red ink, and to write someone's name in red signals either cutting them out of your life, or that they have died. Red is also associated with both the feminine yin and the masculine yang, depending on the source. When someone commits suicide, especially a female, and wants to haunt their loved one, they will dress in red from top to bottom before carrying out the act.
In Japan, red is a traditional color for a heroic figure.
In the Indian Sub-continent, red is the traditional color of bridal dresses, and is frequently represented in the media as a symbolic color for married women. The color is associated with sexuality in marriage relationships through its connection to heat and fertility. It is also the color of wealth, beauty, and the goddess Lakshmi.
In Central Africa, Ndembu warriors rub themselves with red during celebrations. Since their culture sees the color as a symbol of life and health, sick people are also painted with it. Like most Central African cultures, the Ndembu see red as ambivalent, better than black, but not as good as white. In other parts of Africa, however, red is a color of mourning, representing death. Because of the connection red bears with death in many parts of Africa, the Red Cross has changed its colors to green and white in parts of the continent.

The colour orange occurs between red and yellow in the visible spectrum at a wavelength of about 585 - 620 nm, and has a hue of 30 degrees in HSV colour space. The complementary color of orange is azure, a slightly greenish blue. Orange pigments are largely in the ochre or cadmium families, and absorb mostly blue light.
The color is named after the orange fruit, introduced to Europe via the Sanskrit word naranja. Before this was introduced to the English-speaking world, the colour was referred to (in Old English) as geoluhread, which translates into Modern English as yellow-red. The first recorded use of orange as a color name in English was in 1512, in the court of King Henry VIII.
In metaphysics orange connects with the spleen chakra.
Orange creates balance. In terms of subtle bodies, it is linked to the mental body in both its logical and conceptual form. It is used to increase immunity, to increase sexual potency, to help in all digestive ailments, chest and kidney diseases. Orange will have a gentle warming effect if used lightly.
Yellow is the color evoked by light that stimulates both the L and M (long and medium wavelength) cone cells of the retina about equally, but does not significantly stimulate the S (short-wavelength) cone cells; that is, light with much red and green but not very much blue.
Light with a wavelength of 570-580 nm is yellow, as is light with a suitable mixture of somewhat longer and shorter wavelengths. Yellow's traditional RYB complementary color is purple, violet or indigo. Yellow's colorimetrically defined complementary color in both RGB and CMYK color spaces is blue.
The word yellow comes from the Old English geolu, which derived from the Proto-Germanic word gelwaz. The oldest known usage of this word in English is in the Old English poem Beowulf, in a description of a shield made of wood from a yew tree.
In the English language, yellow is used to describe objects having the color between green and orange in the visible light spectrum (gold, egg yolks, sunflowers, etc.). The color is associated with age and aging, both with people and objects (e.g. yellowed-paper). Ethnographically, the term yellow has also been used as a slang term for both oriental persons and light-skinned African-Americans. The term is associated at times with jealousy, as well as cowardliness. Lastly, it is associated with sensational journalistic practices, or yellow journalism, and resistance to militant trade unions.
In metaphysics orange connects with the solar plexus.
Yellow is the color of intellect and it is used for mental clarity. Linked to the sun and the lion, it is connected to source of creation was it's frequency emerges into higher frequencies.

Green is a color, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 520-570-nm. In the subtractive color system, it is not a primary color, but is created out of a mixture of yellow and blue, or yellow and cyan; it is considered one of the additive primary colors. On the HSV color wheel, the complement of green is magenta; that is, a purple color corresponding to an equal mixture of red and blue light. On a color wheel based on traditional color theory (RYB), the complementary color to green is considered to be red.
The word green is closely related to the Old English verb growan, 'to grow'. It is used to describe plants or the ocean. Sometimes it can also describe someone who is inexperienced, jealous, or sick. In America, green is a slang term for money, among other things. Several colloquialisms have derived from these meanings, such as 'green around the gills', a phrase used to describe a person who looks ill.
Several minerals have a green color, including the emerald, which is colored green by its chromium content. Animals such as frogs, lizards, and other reptiles and amphibians, fish, insects, and birds, appear green because of a mixture of layers of blue and green coloring on their skin. By far the largest contributor to green in nature is chlorophyll, the chemical by which plants photosynthesize. Many creatures have adapted to their green environments by taking on a green hue themselves as camouflage.
Culturally, green has broad and sometimes contradictory meanings. In some cultures, green symbolizes hope and growth, while in others, it is associated with death, sickness, envy or the devil.
The most common associations, however, are found in its ties to nature. For example, Islam venerates the color, as it expects paradise to be full of lush greenery. Green is also associated with regeneration, fertility and rebirth for its connections to nature. Recent political groups have taken on the color as symbol of environmental protection and social justice, and consider themselves part of the Green movement, some naming themselves Green parties. This has led to similar campaigns in advertising, as companies have sold green, or environmentally friendly, products.
The word green comes from the Old English word grene, or, in its older form, groeni. This adjective is closely related to the Old English verb growan (to grow) and goes back into Western Germanic and Scandinavian languages.
The word designates the color on the visible light spectrum situated between blue and yellow. It is often used to describe foliage and the sea, and has become a symbol of environmentalism. It also is combined with other color names to increase specificity, as in blue-green, or with objects, as in emerald green. Green is also used to describe jealousy and envy, as well as anyone young, inexperienced, or gullible (probably by analogy to unripe, i.e. unready or immature, fruit).
Green is sometimes associated with nausea and sickness.
Lastly, green can communicate safety to proceed, as in traffic lights.
Overall, greens, along with blues and purples, are frequently described as cool colors, in contrast to red and yellow.
Some languages have no word separating green from blue.
The word green is found in several colloquial phrases derived from these meanings: in golf, the region of grass around the hole is trimmed short and referred to as the putting green, or simply, the green.
Someone who works well with plants is said to have a green thumb or green fingers, a physically-ill person is said to look green around the gills, and the word greenhorn refers to an inexperienced person.
A company is greenwashing if they advertise positive environmental practices to cover up environmental destruction.
Green with envy highlights another emotional association, which William Shakespeare had first described as the "green-eyed monster" in Othello and The Merchant of Venice.
In areas that use the U.S. Dollar as currency, green carries a connotation of money, wealth, and capitalism, because green is the color of United States banknotes, giving rise to the slang term greenback for cash.
The Libyan flag is completely green, in honor of Islam's veneration of the color.
Green is considered the traditional color of Islam, likewise because of its association with nature. This is for several reasons. First, Muhammad is reliably quoted in a hadith as saying that 'water, greenery, and a beautiful face' were three universally good things.
In the Qur'an, sura Al-Insan, believers in God in Paradise wear fine green silk.
Also, Al-Khidr (The Green One), is a Qur'anic figure who met and traveled with Moses. The flag of Hamas, as well as the flag of Iran, is green, symbolizing their Islamist ideology.
Roman Catholic and more traditional Protestant clergy wear green vestments at liturgical celebrations during Ordinary Time.
In the Eastern Catholic Church, green is the color of Pentecost.
Green is one of the Christmas colors as well, possibly dating back to pre-Christian times, when evergreens were worshipped for their ability to maintain their color through the winter season. Romans used green holly and evergreen as decorations for their winter solstice celebration called Saturnalia, which eventually evolved into a Christmas celebration.
One of the more notable uses of this meaning is found in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. In this story is the Emerald City, where everyone wears tinted glasses which make everything look green. According to the populist interpretation of the story, the city's color is used by the author, L. Frank Baum, to illustrate the financial system of America in his day, as he lived in a time when America was debating the use of paper money versus gold.
Alice Bailey, in her system called the Seven Rays which classifies humans into seven different metaphysical psychological types, the "third ray" of "creative intelligence" is represented by the color green. People who have this metaphysical psychological type are said to be "on the Green Ray".
In Hinduism, Green is used to symbolically represent the fourth, heart chakra (Anahata).
Psychics who claim to be able to observe the aura with their third eye report that someone with a green aura is typically someone who is in an occupation related to health, such as a physician or nurse, as well as people who are lovers of nature and the outdoors.
Emerald Tablets of Thoth
Blue is a color, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 440-490 nm. It is considered one of the additive primary colours.
On the HSV Color Wheel, the complement of blue is yellow; that is, a colour corresponding to an equal mixture of red and green light. On a color wheel based on traditional colour theory (RYB), the complementary colour to blue is considered to be orange (based on the Munsell color wheel).
The English language commonly uses "blue" to refer to any colour from navy blue to cyan. The word itself is derived from the Old French word bleu.
The modern English word blue comes from the Middle English, bleu or blwe, which came from an Old French word bleu of Germanic origin (Frankish or possibly Old High German blao, "shining"). Bleu replaced Old English blaw.
The root of these variations was the Proto-Germanic blaewaz, which was also the root of the Old Norse word bla and the modern Icelandic blar, and the Scandinavian word bla, but it can refer to other colors.
A Scots and Scottish English word for "blue-grey" is blae, from the Middle English bla ("dark blue," from the Old English blood). Ancient Greek lacked a word for color blue and Homer called the color of the sea "wine dark", except that the word kyanos (cyan) was used for dark blue enamel.
In the English language, blue may refer to the feeling of sadness. "He was feeling blue". This is because blue was related to rain, or storms, and in Greek mythology, the god Zeus would make rain when he was sad (crying), and a storm when he was angry. Kyanos was a name used in Ancient Greek to refer to dark blue tile (in English it means blue-green or cyan). The phrase "feeling blue" is linked also to a custom among many old deepwater sailing ships. If the ship lost the captain or any of the officers during its voyage, she would fly blue flags and have a blue band painted along her entire hull when returning to home port.
Many languages do not have separate terms for blue and or green, instead using a cover term for both (when the issue is discussed in linguistics, this cover term is sometimes called grue in English). Blue is commonly used on internet browsers to colour a link that has not been clicked; when a link has been clicked it changes yellow or orange or purple.
Blue is the color of truth, serenity and harmony, by helping to soothe the mind. It is good for cooling, calming, reconstructing and protecting. good for fevers, calming the body and mind, raising frequency, etc.
Blue is the color of electricity. We experience in a program created by electromagnetic energy that had a beginning and is evolving out of physical consciousness.
Blue connects with the third eye chakra.
Blue relates to the future in linear time as it is a faster moving frequency than we experience in the physical. Consciousness is moving into the blue. (Midnight) Blue takes us to 12:00, 12 around 1 creational geometry, 2012 Mayan Calendar Prophecy, Hopi Blue Kachina Prophecies, Isis/Sirius, and more.

Purple is a general term for the range of shades of color occurring between red and blue. In color theory, a 'purple' is defined as any non-spectral color between violet and red. The spectral color violet is not a purple.
In art, purple is the color on the color wheel between magenta and violet and its tints and shades. This color, electric purple, is shown below.
In human color psychology, purple is associated with royalty, regality, and nobility (stemming from its use in heraldry to denote gentry)
In metaphysics purple connects with the crown chakra.
In healing purple is good for emotional problems, rheumatism, epilepsy, reducing pain, deep tissue work, bones.
The Violet Flame is supposedly charged with the light of divine freedom. It is used to burn off karma from other lifetimes on all levels.
White is a tone, the perception which is evoked by light that stimulates all three types of color sensitive cone cells in the human eye in near equal amount and with high brightness compared to the surroundings.
Since the impression of white is obtained by three summations of light intensity across the visible spectrum, the number of combinations of light wavelengths that produce the sensation of white is practically infinite.
There are a number of different white light sources such as the midday Sun, incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps and white LEDs. The impression of white light can also be created by mixing appropriate intensities of the primary colors of light - red, green and blue (RGB) - a process called additive mixing, as seen in many display technologies.
White light reflected off objects can be seen when no part of the light spectrum is reflected significantly more than others and the reflecting material has a degree of diffusion. This is seen when transparent fibers, particles, or droplets are in a transparent matrix of a substantially different refractive index. Examples include classic "white" substances such as sugar, foam, pure sand or snow, cotton, clouds, and milk.
Crystal boundaries and imperfections can also make otherwise transparent materials white, as in the milky quartz or the microcrystalline structure of a seashell. This is also true for artificial paints and pigments, where white results when finely divided transparent material of a high refractive index is suspended in a contrasting binder. Typically paints contain calcium carbonate and/or synthetic rutile with no other pigments if a white color is desired.
In painting, white can be crafted by reflecting ambient light from a white pigment, although the ambient light must be white light, or else the white pigment will appear the color of the light. White when mixed with black produces gray. To art students, the use of white can present particular problems, and there is at least one training course specializing in the use of white in art. In watercolor painting, white areas are the absence of paint on the paper. When mixing paints in order to get a lighter color, it's advisable to mix a small amount of color to white, rather than trying to add white to the color, as it will take considerably more paint to get the desired tint.

The word Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for "wheel" or "disk" and originated within the philosophy of the ancient yoga system of India, most specifically from the Tantric texts. In this system, there are seven major chakras arranged vertically along the spine, starting at the base of the spine and ending at the top of the head. In the physical body, these seven chakras correspond to major nerve ganglia, glands of the endocrine system, and various bodily processes, such as breathing, digesting, or procreating.
Sound (the word) is the original creational tone. Everything is made up of energy at various frequencies. All things in nature vibrate to sound, light and color. Sound frequencies effect everything about us. The correct vibrational frequencies can be used to heal and balance our bodies.
Sound healing is the practice of using sound to realize and correct imbalances in the body. Sound healing works on the belief that the human body is not solid. Rather it is energy that is held together by sound. Any disease therefore indicates that some sound has gone out of tune.
Each color corresponds to one of the chakras in our body. Sound is used in many forms to heal and balance energies. Each chakra relates to a musical note.
Equated to these tones are used for healing. I would suggest you buy a tuning fork in a local store. This will help heal with sound. Tuning forks used with quartz crystal bowls help magnify the tones and aid healing.
One of the fundamental mantras used in meditation is Om - Aum - which means I am that I am Om has a high vibratory frequency due to the integrity of the word. Putting your conscious attention on a mantra such as Om draws you to the vibration of the intention of the word - to heighten one's consciousness.
The intention of 'om' is to cause you to be one with all life thereby opening yourself to unlimited growth. Again the mantra is not beneficial due to its literal translation but instead to its vibratory frequency.
