Why is it that color can affect us so much without any seeming reason?
Our mood can change just by walking into a room painted blue, red, or yellow. Looking at certain colors can soothe or irritate, make us happy or depressed. We react both consciously and sub-consciously to colors for one specific reason. They are projections of pure energy. Color is energy made visible. Our reaction depends upon whether the shades are pure and harmonious as The Divine intended, or have been altered into a non-harmonious state, or vibration.
Everything in the universe is made up of 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 us to certain clothing and accessories, color we select for our homes, and even the foods we eat.
Color is a frequency wavelength, based on the seven basic rainbow colors we see as light is separated by a prism.
These seven colors; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, are the original frequencies or vibrations made manifest into the 3rd dimensional world we live in. They also correspond to our chakra energy centers. All colors seen in nature are shades, or combinations of, these basic seven plus black and white. Some say that black is the absence of color and white is all colors together. Others also hold the opposite as truth, that black is all colors and white the absence. Actually both theories are correct. It just depends upon whether you are looking at reflection or absorption as to which is true.
Working with color as a means of healing and spiritual growth is a superior method. This is because judgment, doubts and other belief system blockages are usually not present, as they can be with other modalities. Most important is that there is no chance of human error or misunderstanding. Color just IS. It is a pure state of divine energy. No complex interpretation or belief concepts are needed.
It is a true statement that God is Color, just as God is Sound, God is Nature, and God is The All That Is. Therefore, just as a prism separates pure light into visible colors, the totality of God can be better perceived by colors, also call Color Rays, which are individual aspects of God.
We can only glimpse at the totality of The All That Is, I AM Presence, or God through the level of our own consciousness and awareness. God is expansive and ever expanding beyond our belief and comprehension. The Color Rays that are present on our planet reflect the level of awareness and vibration of the planet's Collective Consciousness.
Until the recent past, the consciousness on planet earth could only perceive the seven basic rainbow colors. For the same reason, we only had seven actively open chakras. About 25 years ago (1987), the vibration of the planet started to shift into a high frequency. The higher or faster osculation of vibration, allows for a higher level of Divine Light to enter into our existence. Whereas there were originally only Seven Rays, we expanded into Twelve Rays during the Harmonic Convergence of August 1987. We are now expanding at an accelerated rate and receiving new Rays with each major shift of our consciousness. The Divine is showering us with these new energies to assist us with our personal and planetary Ascension.
The October 10, 2010 (10-10-10) portal will usher in another major leap of expansion and many new Rays will unfold. November 11, 2011 (11-11-11) and December 12, 2012 (12-12-12) will also be major expansion dates, each portal building upon the former, all in preparation for December 21, 2012.
This is a partial list of the Divine Rays -- Aspects of God -- currently available for us to receive into our own body, mind and Spirit. They are in addition to the original seven colors. The blue, yellow, green, etc., of these Divine Rays are a higher octave of the originals. Focusing on these colors during meditation is a very effective way to tap into the corresponding aspect of God and bring those attributes and blessings into your life.

WORKING WITH THE COLOR RAYS
There are thousands of ways to work with color, as many as your imagination can create. A few very basic methods are:
Center yourself and ask the color ray to come into your body. Imagine it in your mind's eye and see it slowly descend into your crown chakra as a large ball of light. Bring the color into your body with slow rhythmic breaths. Focus on the attributes of the color as you do this. Strive for a five-minute session with each color you wish to receive but even 1 or 2 minutes is very helpful.
Surround yourself with the color you wish to absorb. Wearing clothes, scarves, undergarments and shoes; sleeping in colored sheets and blankets; painting your home, displaying art, etc., in your desired colors -- with INTENTION -- is very effective.
Wear as jewelry, sleep with or keep near, gemstones, crystals or minerals of the desired colors. Hold them in your hands or place them on your body as you meditate. Gemstones such as ruby, emerald, diamond, amethyst, etc. are extremely powerful for they are emanations of the purest concentration of the Rays. This is the real reason why gems are so valuable.
I wish to stress that intention, aware intention, is very necessary for maximum benefit when working with color. It is your inner awareness and stated desire to claim the power of the colors and their attributes that make all the difference of just "grabbing something to wear" and intentionally selecting a garment for empowerment and spiritual expansion.
You can do this with your clothes and jewelry every day, not just when attending a special event.
Each Color Ray also has a Flame. The Rays are a soft form of the color energy. They will wrap around you like a warm embrace. The Flames are the Rays in action. They look just like fire, but in the specific color of the ray. Flames "burn" without pain or damage. They are living Divine Fire. These flames are stepped-up frequencies of the color rays and each one has a specific function on our physical, cellular, etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. For example, many are aware of the Violet Flame and it's power to transmute negative thoughts, emotions and deeds into positive energy - the alchemy of lead into gold.
One of the best ways to work with the Flames is to first clear yourself with the Violet Flame in the following 4-step method -- where in the 4th step you call in the next Flame you wish to utilize:
Step 1. Bring the Violet Flame into your body. Ask your Higher Self, a Master, Guide or Angel to assist you to do so, or just ask the Flame to "be made manifest," whichever is most comfortable. It is helpful to visualize (doesn't matter if you can or cannot actually see it) or pretend that there is a ball of violet fire above your head. Then ask that ball of fire to come into your body and fill every speck of your entire body.
Step 2. Spin the flame in and around your body. Keep the Flame inside your body while asking it to also come out through your heart chakra and spin around or encircle the outside of your body so that it's encompassing your emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.
Step 3. Ask the Violet Flame to transmute everything you wish to be changed or eliminated from your life. Some people like to mention everything like a shopping list - all karma, negative feelings such as anger, poverty, frustration, sadness, physical illnesses, etc., which is fine. But you can also do a catch-all phrase, such as "transmute anything and everything standing in the way of my ascension, or of becoming a Christed Being." Again, it's the intent and the feeling behind it. One important phrase to add is, "on all dimensions, on all levels, through all time and space, past, present and future" to your request. That covers all your lifetimes and your multidimensional selves.
Step 4. Change negativity into Divine Light and fill your body. "Holes" are created in your aura where the dense energy and blocks were consumed by using the Violet Flame. It is very important to fill those spaces up with healing energy. Some people like to do the list again. "Please transmute everything into love, prosperity, abundance, peace and happiness." Or you can ask for specific colors, which are pure energy. Pink is unconditional love. Blue is peace and tranquility. Green is health and abundance. Deep dark blue is spiritual knowledge and intuition. Violet is spiritual advancement and knowledge.
It is at this point that you would ask to be filled with the Color Ray of your choice -- or for more intensity -- the Flame of your choice. If selecting a Flame ask it to "Transform my human self into my Divine Self instilling me with your special qualities and attributes." You may verbalize the attributes or just ask for them without listing them. Either way works fine. Using the Golden Ray of the Christ Consciousness, or the Silver Ray of the Divine Feminine, is particularly powerful and transformational. Try alternating them from day to day to achieve balanced male-female energy.
If you are interested in learning advanced methods and techniques using the Color Rays and Flames, I suggest that you attend one of the Saint Germain Ascension Play-Shops. They focus on how to use color, sound, the Violet Flame and other Sacred Fires, healing modalities, manifestation techniques and spiritual laws to raise your frequency towards Self Realization and Ascension.
