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 - the dye colour and the name came from (wait for it!) a substance that squirted out of the mucus glands of a Murex (tropical sea snail - Latin name Purpurea). It took around 12,000 sea snails to make a pound of the dye, and by about 300 BC, purple dye was worth its weight in gold.
Due to its price, it became the colour of the wealthy and entitled, and in the Byzantine Empire, it was restricted for the use of Royals only - hence the name of the colour 'Imperial Purple'.
The dye possessed a unique quality - weathering and sunlight intensified the colour.
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.
