How to Work with Color


Color symbolism has been around for millennia. From the Tyrian purple robes of ancient royalty to the cerulean blue of nazar amulets, we have always associated colors with the way they make us feel and the qualities they seem to portray. Involving color in spiritual practice is just a natural extension of what we are already doing in other parts of our lives. In spiritual practice, color is a visual and emotional shortcut that links us to what we want — love that is strong and warm like the red blood in our veins, health that is vibrant like the greenest shoots of spring, and peace like the calmest blue water. The symbolism of color may be added at any point during your workings to energize and magnify their power.

COLOR ASSOCIATIONS — Colors have energetic associations that can be drawn on when working for a particular outcome.
