It's an amazing thing, but colour can travel through space to heal others too. The energy and frequency of colour travels across the internet to heal my clients in other countries and other parts of the country via Skype.
Colours help in relationship hearings, in family healing, with house healing and blessings, and so much more.
I'm fairly sure I'm having a love affair with my colour pencils, and my pencil sharpener, I use them in almost every healing session and there are certain colours I use more than others, some I've used down to tiny stubs. I've decided to collect them and save them in a jar, as they represent a huge amount of healing that has gone out to people over the last few months. I've been writing down sessions for quite some time, but during a session with a friend months ago - the coloured pencils were literally yelling out from the cupboard. I had no idea what I was going to draw - but I did what I was told.
The session drawings go home with the clients and so the vibration of ongoing healing is accessible to them through each drawing. Some of my clients hold onto them when they have trouble sleeping, and the clearing energy helps them nod off.
The more colour you fill your life with - the more vibrant your life becomes.
Rose Quartz is gentle and beneficial for adults and children. A beautiful healer and comfort stone, promoting relaxation and all kinds of wellness, it's also said to be beneficial for people with Parkinsons and Alzheimers.
Its colour can range from almost white to a deep rose pink, it may fade if left in the sun. It symbolises, love, peace, comfort and relaxation and is often sourced from Brazil.
I have some rose quartz here for sale; and a circle of rose quartz and other love healing stones you can stand in to experience a full body buzz of rose quartz healing.
You may also choose to have a crystal healing with the love stones to bring wellness or assist with transitioning through grief.
Purple is the colour of the Crown Chakra, of opening to spirit, spiritual wisdom, spirituality.
Purple is viewed as a colour of power. The integration of Heaven and Earth, supporting and expanding devotion, divinity, connection, bringing the Universal Consciousness into the 'Thousand Petaled Lotus' which you will see a representation of, on the top of Buddha's head.
Purple is the strongest colour in the wavelength visible to the human eye. At 430 - 390 nanometers, intense and concentrated, it is a powerful tool in colour healing, protective, used to heal/help people with addictions, (amethyst crystals are often used to ease or release alcoholism) to ease scattered minds, release fear, promote creativity, uplift, release depression, ease sadness and help with sleep, it is considered a spiritual antiseptic - see the Violet Flame Decree here .
Purple is favoured in Churches - denoting certain high ranking positions, and within all realms of spirituality - spiritual churches are often filled with a delightful riot of purple clad ladies.
Because purple possesses these mystical or God-like associations, it can also be a trigger colour for some sceptics - who think Madame Zelda's purple velvet table cloth is the pits. That which draws and fascinates one person, repels another.
The closed (or certainly restricted) Crown Chakra of a sceptic may be threatened by the embracing, blossoming wavelength of purple - asking for expansion in trust and wonder.
Purple in flowers: Violet, Lilacs and Lavender are all gorgeous, but this Crocus wooed me.
Crocus stands for cheerfulness, and is the origin of the highly prized and terrifically expensive spice Saffron. Up to 250,000 Saffron flowers must be plucked of their golden goodness - to make just ONE pound of Saffron spice!
Nicholas Culpeper the Botanist, Herbalist, Physician & Astrologer said of Saffron 'The use of it ought to be moderate and reasonable, for when the dose is too large, it produces a heaviness of the head and sleepiness. Some have fallen into an immoderate convulsive laughter which ended in death.'
- Culpeper's The Complete Herbal, 1649 .
That'a a serious amount of cheerfulness - but I'm quite sure you could do worse than die laughing!!
You could sit for a moment, meditating on the Crocus picture, breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth, and ask for Crocus energy to infuse your body with healing - noticing where in your body you feel its effect most.
Let me know via email, and I will share my experience with you.
The light streams in on the floor, dancing dust motes tinkling in its gaze. Twirling and swirling in the glorious silence.
There is nothing. Or is there?
Paying attention brings the gulls in first. Off in the distance, exultant cries tell tales of low tides and rich pickings. The cicadas follow, their sibilant hum setting a clear frequency to cut and release, cut and release - they are dislodging the last of summer. Stridently sending it on its way, a few more long days of sunshine and then it will be gone.
The temperature has dropped. Last night was all about being covered. The cooler air today seems to aid thought processes.
The clock ticks, the fridge whirrs. And now there are school children on break time. A truck rumbling by and a few cars to help with the life hum. Further out, construction clangs, diggers and drop saws intrude.
The breeze just murmurs.
After last nights crazy wind, violently whipping the curtains and howling round the house - this is peace.
Take a moment to tune to all the sounds in your space, hear them, picture them, then retreat back out and let them go. Listen to the silence of your body.
All these external things have only the importance I attach to them.
Breathe and allow the stillness to centre you.
Indigo - a stunning, concentrated and powerful colour that can heal, stimulate dreams, aid psychic awakening, raise concentration - may help memory, eyesight, reduce bleeding, release tension, and release headaches. It is also used to help the sinuses and it certainly helps meditation.
Indigo conjures up the night sky, mysticism, magic and moonlight.
If you are out of balance with indigo, life may be spent too much in the mind, consorting with ‘what ifs?’ sleeplessness, mind chatter, distraction, headaches, eye trouble, sinus problems, and even some ear problems. Perhaps your veins could also be affected.
It is the colour that represents the brow chakra, (also known as the ‘third eye’ or ajna chakra) which is strongly associated with the Pineal Gland (charged with producing the serotonin derivative melatonin – a hormone that - amongst other things - regulates/affects sleep patterns.)
The Brow Chakra has a correspondence to age 36 – 42, the age when 'what about me?' and 'what's this all about anyway?' often shows up - and of course - the bigger question 'WHO AM I?'
French philosopher Rene Descartes who named the Pineal Gland 'The Seat of the Soul', spent his life studying that very thing and is responsible for a very popular quote 'I think, therefore I am.' translated from 'Cogito Ergo Sum'.
I prefer to look at it as 'I am the sum of my thoughts.' For a time we forget ourselves, we are somebody's child, brother, sister, mother, father, husband or wife, and sometimes we are our own nobody - but around 36 - 42, if we haven't already - we somehow awaken.
What we dwell on, IS what we dwell in, it was true in Rene's lifetime (1596 - 1650) and it is true now.
How do we have a healthy pineal gland? Keep up the indigo and limit your fluoride exposure - studies indicate that fluoride plays a very large part in the calcification of the pineal gland – so avoiding fluoride toothpaste and fluoridated water, and eating blueberries could be the best things you could do. Blueberries come from a family of plants called Vaccinium.
Doesn't that sound like a vaccine to you? Could they really be a natural medicine, or an antidote to what ails us?? Yes they could.
Blueberries contain a chemical called anthocyanin – which gives blueberries their COLOUR! and this chemical appears to be the one that protects neurons in the brain. Anthocyanin* promotes sharper vision, concentration, is anti inflammatory (a vasoconstrictor) and antioxidant. It’s beneficial for heart disease, and also is said to slow or stop internal bleeding. Knocking out some of the oxidative stresses associated with aging – partly by enriching and cleaning the blood. If you think about it – inflammation is going to make blood vessels swell, imagine all those tiny vessels behind your eyes and in your sinuses – it stands to reason that if they are swollen, breathing could be affected, sight may be affected, and concentration would be reduced. So introducing a vasoconstrictor into the diet - such as blueberries, is very likely to create a benefit.
If you, like me, have looked at blueberries and wondered why on earth they are so expensive – after all, they really are only food – think again. They most definitely are medicine – their lovely little fat indigo tummies bathe you in colour and with their amazing colour chemical medicinal properties – they could help your wellness significantly!!
AND you can grow them at home quite easily in large containers.
*While researching this article I discovered that blueberries, bilberries, cranberries, huckleberries and black raspberries are ALL part of the vaccinium family and all have very similar properties. Leading plant expert Michael Moore says (of huckleberries) “some folks with allergies and the tendency for skin hyperactivity may find that the tea decreases their inflammatory responses”.

(I expect that this would be to do with settling the capillary action/reaction that creates an itch or 'explosion' on the surface of the skin.)
Colour has been largely overlooked as a sort of fringe or alternative study, but now greater store is being set by the psychological effects it has on the human body.
Jay Neitz, Professor of Opthalmology and colour researcher from the University of Washington says:
"The cells that get excited by orange light and calmed by blue light don’t just connect to our circadian pacemaker; they also go to areas of the brain that control things like mood. This partially explains things like seasonal depression, but also helps make sense of our intuitive feelings that blues are calming and reds are energising."
'Intuitive feelings?' - isn't that good to hear coming from a scientist?
Blue and red are on the opposite ends of the spectrum which means if we have too much stimulation, too much GRRR and too much red, we could have issues with inflammation.
We all know an ‘inflammatory situation’ – is an angry one that could blow up in our faces.
So read red, sometimes, as the out of balance angry colour/emotion that it can be – do a body check and ask honestly ‘am I a bit too angry at present?’ If you are and you've been 'seeing a lot of red' lately, try bringing in some indigo (just ask for it, or use fabric - a tee shirt or scarf) to balance, or even trade it altogether for some gentler pinks.
Life needs to slow down, chill out and be restful, not restless. If you are restless, you could try an indigo duvet, to bring in the peace of the night sky, calming and tranquil.
Ancient Indigo was a crystal talisman - Lapis Lazuli available from blues, through indigo to purple) was traditionally worn by royalty to denote power, wealth, wisdom - it was even powdered for medicines (funnily enough, one of them was for the eyes) and potions, and it was used in ancient times to ward off evil.
It contains gold pyrite within, so was considered to be a powerful 'gateway to heaven.' and it was powdered and mixed with a medium for use as a deep blue colorant in paints, dyes and porcelain.
We must remember no chakra colour is more important than the next, but we need to feed our depleted colours. Being healthy in our indigo helps with clarity and order in our thoughts and in our lives.
Traditional Indigo dye from the indigo plant, was unfortunately taken right out of balance when it's beautiful colour was so highly sought after that a slave trade was created to keep up with demand. Now commercial indigo is created, rather than grown, and the trade has mellowed into something a little more palatable. The indigo plant as an Eastern herbal medicine was used to induce purging, and it has never been taken to in the West, studies cite that it was too harsh and so it was crossed off the list forthwith. I believe it's here for great things, and possibly for the mind, but those things are undiscovered as yet.
I’ve so loved looking at my own feelings about indigo and sharing some of this wisdom with you. For more information on detoxing your pineal gland – or for where to get some yummy Lapis Lazuli – message me below.

All things in moderation.
A light day, a bright day. A day filled with potential, and if we choose to approach it with wonder, we will be doing ourselves and all those around us a great service.
Breathe in. Imagine you are standing in a circle of gold on the floor, and breathe out, blowing out through your mouth.
One more breath in, through your nose, imagining, gathering, collecting any stress, or 'dust bunnies' out of your body as you go, all the way up from your toes, and breathe out through your mouth powerfully, blowing them away.
Breathe in again, through your nose, really filling out your lungs, and on this breath imagine you are bringing in a rainbow of colour and that it is flooding your body and topping it up where it has felt sluggish. Release this breath gently, and feel your feet on the floor.
Sessions are for helping you feel like you again.
Each session is very individual, it's what you need it to be - in order to bring you into your strong, well, empowered self - in a clearer, brighter, lighter space.
Bringing you back to life… and to love.
It's about resetting the body to harmonious balance. A session lifts heaviness, removing that 'stuck' feeling and instilling confidence in your abilities to create a great life.
There is guidance within the session, (you can ask specifically for a reading) and sometimes there is a little homework too.
Depending on the length of time we have, sessions may include these things and the possibilities can be huge…
I work in a high trust environment, so this is a positive and proactive space for you to 'get things off your chest' without judgement, an open space for perfect release and renewal.
I see inside the body and work with universal energy, colour, sound, intention and holograms to facilitate this life change. I'm a Reiki Master/Teacher, a Colour Therapist, an Elohim Practitioner and have also been gifted other healing abilities through life experience.
The pace your body is able to process and integrate all this work dictates how much we achieve. If you are really, really ready - your body works like a thirsty sponge.
A Reiki session is a great follow up to this procedure.
The ideal way to approach your session is with the mindset that you are really ready to move forward - and when you've got that, the rest of it flows quite organically. Before you come, you may like to create a mental list of the things you'd like to 'let go of'.
Notes and recommendations are often supplied from the sessions.
Sessions work alongside allopathic medicine.
Some testimonials for my work are here.
Are you ready?
Red is the colour of love. It's regenerative, sensual, stimulating, the colour of power, of the base of our bodies. Of security.
Red is all about growth from 0 - 7 years and cares for our backs, hips, legs and feet.
It is the colour of the wavelength of light from approximately 620–740 nm on the electromagnetic spectrum.
What does that mean to us?
We are on a wavelength too. And when our waves are a bit choppy, we need a little colour tuning.
So this is the first part of that tuning. When we are lacking in energy, our bodies sometimes need red.
To find out if your red balance is out. Stand up, relax, shake yourself a wee bit, flop your arms to the sides and breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Ask in your mind… 'do I need more red?'
If your body wants to move forward slightly - you probably do.
Go find a little bit of red from somewhere and tuck it in your pocket for a while thinking about absorbing the colour for healing.
Later check in again with your body and see how you are feeling. Are you topped up?
Too much red too close to bedtime might not be so conducive to deep sleeping. So if you have a big red duvet - and you are not sleeping - try a night with it off the bed - it might be 'winding you up' a bit.
Don't forget to check your pockets and take out your red helper before you pop it in the wash!
