Color magick is something you have been practicing your entire life. Colors have been used for healing for thousands of years. From the Egyptians to the green rooms in Hollywood. Colors trigger emotion and are even used regularity as part of business marketing strategy’s!
In metaphysics, color is used as a form of therapy to balance and align energies toward a specific intent. We use everything! From candles, sun catchers, fabric, visualization, meditation, crystals, art, raw nature to any other medium that fits our needs.
Every color has both its unique energetic and healing property as well as our own personal correspondence. I find that personal correspondences tend to override the commonly known correspondences.
As a beginner’s kit to color magick, I felt orgone energy was the perfect fit for amplifying your Prana to work with colors! I have a few breathing techniques typed up for increasing prana & breathing color. There are great starter meditations to develop your personal relationship with color. I recommend wearing or holding the orgone pendant while doing the breathing exercises and candle spells.
Orgone products generate a positive life force that continually emits powerful Chi, Ki, or Kundalini energy (creative sexual/spiritual energy in a physical form). Holding or wearing these beautiful creations literally changes negative energy to positive energy, supporting a higher, healthier, and more balanced physical and emotional state. Orgone is a practical tool that helps you maintain a highly positive energy field in your personal space and workplace, blessing and benefiting you and those you spend time with.
The little ritual candles are widely used throughout the craft and are commonly called chime candles. You have lots of colors to get started with! In candle magick, colored candles have 1000+ uses, it just depends on your intent. When attuning your energy to a specific color for its magickal specialty you do not need a spell or anointing oil. You can simply meditate with the colored candle and focus on its energy. Until you are very familiar with your color needs and personal correspondences, I suggest trusting your intuition and sticking with the first color that gets your attention. Practice increasing your prana, breathing color and meditating with your colors daily until you have ran through all of them. Journaling with water color paints is also a great way to associate your emotions with colors – you do not need to find the words for your emotions only colors, after a while of journaling in color you will develop your own personal color language.
This language is an important part of our magick and path as it triggers emotions and thought in everything around us. It will change the way you read your tarot, or dress for the day. You may end up needing a complete living room or bedroom overhaul! I have a list of the commonly known correspondences for colors below. I think you will resonate with many of the descriptors but then again, we are all unique and its your world, you get to pick it!
