A Rainbow of Power, Colors of Energy

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: I have studied Chakra and Reiki healing and I am a certified Master Reiki and Chakra Healer. I do not claim in any way that I am the most knowledgeable or an expert in the following topics you read. Make this a stepping stone for you to further explore the world of crystals, their metaphysical energies and holistic healing and help you find the positive intentions to help heal your inner self and outward energies. All crystal healing uses and metaphysical definitions are provided as a means of education and do not imply a guarantee of effect. Those suffering from an illness should consult with their General Practitioner FIRST. Crystal healing and other types of energy work are holistic complementary healthcare, not to be considered as a substitute for conventional medicine. If you have a serious health issue, you should consult your doctor and make complementary healing part of a complete health care program. Holistic crystal healing will not solve all your problems, or magically remove your issues. The additional positive energy may help your body heal itself of physical ailments, although I make no health claims.


 

There are so many crystals out there! But how to choose? There are so many different energies connected with so many crystals that it can become overwhelming. But sometimes just being attracted to the color of a crystal/stone means something too. Colors are energies with direct effects on our minds.


Just as a note, crystals and stones cannot heal a person. As holistic instruments they only help by helping the healing process, by removing blockages in the energy flow (Chi) through the body.


Remember, everyone will experience this energy in their own unique way. You may feel something but if not, don’t worry. This doesn’t mean anything is wrong or nothing is happening. How big or small that degree is though, comes down to the openness, willingness, and actions of the receiver.

When looking at crystals/stones you may want to keep in mind how that color or pattern make you feel. How we see colors, the emotions we feel or the colors that attract us are psychologically speaking to us. If you are attracted to a crystal just by it's color and physical appearance, without knowing anything about it, that is your mind and body saying to you, "I like this one." It's that "Ooh, Aah" factor. Then when you learn about the metaphysical energies and healing properties, you might be surprised that it aligns with some aspect of yourself. Even if it is not to heal anything. The crystal/stone could be used to strengthen or support a positive energy you may already have in your life. An energy booster.


No doubt crystals and stones have energy, but we must be knowledgeable about them, in harmony with them to have them be effective for us. Anyway, colors are powers. Here are just some of these energies associated with the colors. I could write a complete blog for each color, but let me just try to give some information on each color to help you.


Note to the reading below: We each have a "projective" and "receptive" hand. Normally, your projective hand is your dominant hand and the receptive the other. But, this can be different for everyone.

"Projective" - Outward energy. To project outward the energy from you. Example, you want to be protected from negative energy, you would wear a protective crystal on your right wrist, if that is your projective hand.

"Receptive" - Attracting energy. To bring inward/toward you. Example, you want to attract positivity, you would wear a positive crystal on your left wrist, if that is your receptive hand.

Red is the color of blood, of birth, and death. In many cultures it has been "sacred," or dedicated to deities. Red stones are projective, active. They are related to the planet Mars and the element of fire, both aggressive energies.

These are protective stones and work to strengthen the body and will power. Red stones are used to promote courage, to lend energy to the body, and to provide additional power.

In ancient times, red stones were worn as antidotes to poison, to keep one's thoughts "pure," and to banish anger and all violent emotions. They were aslo used as a guard against fire and lighting.

In healing, red stones are intimately linked with blood. They are often worn to relieve anemia, to halt bleeding, and to heal wounds.

They also seem to work on rashes and inflammation. Perhaps in association with its blood links red stones were once carried to prevent miscarriage.

Red stones can be empowered and used to overcome sexual dysfunctions, usually by placing the stone near or on the genitals while visualizing.


Pink

Pink stones are receptive, packed with loving vibrations. They are calming, soothing, and are used to de-stress and relax the physical body as well as the mind.

Sometimes thought to be ruled by Venus (though green is a more Venusian color), pink stones are used to attract a love or to strengthen love already present. They may work to smooth over difficulties in long-standing relationships.

They can be worn to promote self-love. This isn't narcissism but a realization of your faults, acceptance and release of them, and then getting on with life. I'm sure you've heard the phrase, we cannot expect others to love us if we don't love ourselves. Pink stones are one energy we can use to chieve this.

Pink stones promote peace, hpapiness, joy, and laughter. They stimulate the lighter emotions, help attract friends, and encourage openness toward others.


Orange

Orange crystals and stones have some of the fire of red but are gentler in their effects. Projective, they have often been seen as symbols of the Sun. These stones are related to personal power. Wearing one will enhance your ability to tap into and direct your energy. These are excellent stones to wear for those people with low self-esteem, for they expand your awareness of self-worth.

Orange stones are also thought to be luck-attracting, and as symbols of success, they are worn to assure a positive outcome.


Yellow

Yellow crystals and minerals are projective. Ruled by mercury, if you're having trouble expressing yourself in an intelligible way, try wearing a yellow stone. Writers may receive help with their work by utilizing yellow stones, while public speakers wear them for eloquence.

Also ruled by the Sun, yellow stones are protective, while the element of air, tells us that they can be used to strengthen the conscious mind.

Healthwise, yellow stones are used to promote digestion, to regulate the nervous system, and for skin problems.

These are stones of movement, of exchange, of energy, and mental awareness.



Green

The color of nature, of fertility, of life, green has often been linked with red in religion. Crystals of this color are receptive. They are used in healing.

They can also be carried or worn to guard the health. Specifically, green stones are thought to strengthen the eyes, control the kidneys, relieve stomach problems, and prevent migraines.

Ruled by Venus, green stones are worn during gardening to promote luxuriant growth, or placed in the ground. If you have house plants, try putting a few empowered green stones in the pots. Due to such usage, they were also thought to increase fertility and, therefore, to promote conception.

Their associations with the element of earth also represent money, riches, prosperity, and luck.

They are grounding and balancing stones that can be worn to attune with the earth.



Blue

Blue is the color of the ocean, of sleep, and of twilight. Ruled by the element of water and the planet Neptune, these are receptive stones and promote peace. Holding a blue stone, or gazing at it by a soft light, calms the emotions, If you have difficulty sleeping, try wearing blue stones to bed. This is also excellent for halting nightmares.

Blue crystals and stones are worn or used to promote healing, in general, and specifically to reduce fevers, relieve ulcers and their causes, and for eliminating inflammations. They are sometimes held to reduce pain from the body.

If you feel in need of purification, wear blue stones, to purify your inner being as well as your outer body.






Purple

Stones that are purple or indigo-colored are receptive and spiritual. Ruled by Jupiter

and Neptune, they have long been associated with mysticism and purification. These are excellent stones to wear for mediation, psychic work, or tapping into the subconscious mind.

As with green and blue stones, purple is the color of healing and peace. These stones are worn to maintain health and in the past were sometimes given to unruly children to promote obedience. Physically, purple stones are utilized to relieve headache, mental illness, concussion, and hair problems. They help relieve depression and produce restful sleep when worn at night.

Purple stones are assocaited with organized religions as well as the more spontaneous, Earth-oriented systems. They are worn to contact higher forces.


White

White stones and crystals are receptive and ruled by the Moon. As such they are intimately linked with sleep and psychism.

In the past, white stones and crystals, especailly chalcedony, were worn to promote lactation by mothers having trouble feeding their babies. In contemporary America, these are considered to be lucky stones, often carried in the pocket or worn to promote good fortune.

Because the Moon glows at night, white crystals are used for protection after dark, often when walking alone in hazardous places. Sometimes white and red stones carried or worn together for protection at all hours. Also worn or carried to help relieve headaches.

Some people say that white stones, because they contain all colors (like white light) can be charged to act as a substitute for stones of any color. This is done through visualization.


Black

The color that represents the outer spaces, not "outer space", but the space absent of light. Black stones and crystals are receptive. They represent the earth and stability and are ruled by Saturn, the planet of restriction. Black stones are symbolic of self-control, or reliance, and quiet power.


They are sometimes viewed as protective. Protection from negativity in many forms, energy, persons, and possibly situations. They are used to absorb this negativity, so that's why black crystals & stones, especially if worn/used on a daily basis should be cleansed more often than any other crystals and stones. But black stones are more often used as a "grounding" stone. If you're lightheaded or dizzy, try wearing black stones.



Mulitcolored

Stones that consist of various colors, such as bloodstone (green and red) and the opal, not to be confused with "opalite". Opal is a natural formed crystal with a rainbow of all colors. Opalite is the more readily available manufactured synthetic crystal. Multicolored stones are more complex in their makeup than single-hued stones. For most of these, one could simply look at the colors individually and determine the stone's uses by combining the energies in each color seen.
