Spirit Jewels

I use vibrant colors in my work because I believe color to be extremely powerful in healing and inspiring one’s body and soul.

How color affects us…
·        Color influences our mood and emotions.
·        Color has an impact on our sense of well-being.
·        Wearing certain colors is a way of self-expression; it sheds light on our personality.
·        Colors affect our way of perception (light colors make a space look big, a high ceiling looks less high when painted in a dark color, etc.)
·        Colors have a symbolic meaning which is immediately recognized by our sub consciousness.  
·        Color influences the flow of energy in our bodies.
Color can help jump-start the tired or diseased body. Color healing, known as Chromo therapy, can be implemented in a number of ways. The ancients built great halls of color healing, where individuals entered and were bathed in light that was filtered through various colored glass panels or windows.
Blue – the universal color of healing, if you are feeling unwell visualize yourself wrapped in a soft blue blanket or surrounded in blue.
Green – denotes peace, helps stem anxiety and brings calm. Helps in balancing the body and spirit. Visualize walking barefoot on soft lush grass that is warm from the sun.
Red – the color of vitality and stimulation. Needs to be used with care as it can also bring anger. Great to use sparingly if someone is suffering from depression or great fatigue.  
Pink – the color of affection and love. Aids in sadness. Visualize yourself in your soft blue blanket and imagine soft threads of pink being woven through it.
Purple – promotes strength and growth both physically and spiritually. Visualize the water in your shower purple cascading down all over you.
Brown – earth, home grounding, endurance and stability. Visualize yourself sitting with your feet filling with the color brown and going down into the earth.
