The metaphysical properties of colour series.


In this series of posts on the properties of colour I have included an overview of the metaphysical properties and information on some colours and the chakras that they relate to.  I have also included some lessons and affirmations.

Later, in a more in-depth series, I will build on the properties of these colours and how you can use them to your benefit.

Having studied the Aura Soma system of Colour Therapy to the Advanced Level I find the natural benefits of vibrations from colour intriguing and I’m always trying to find out more information on this subject.

This colour Coral can be thought of as the love-wisdom ray. The love coming from pink coupled with wisdom of orange.   It is the bringer of ancient wisdom and unconditional love. Service and empathy to others are associated with Coral, as is sacrifice for the common good. This is the colour for community minded endeavours and those that share a common journey. It increases co-operative abilities.

Coral activates a moral vision, a sensitivity to our environment. It is open-minded and has a child like spontaneity. Coral boosts imagination and expressions of love and creativity. This colour develops higher intuition. It offers protection from deception. It allows us to access the etheric web to connect to our soul group.

The Lesson for Coral is

“Feelings of Unrequited Love”.

There may be unresolved relationships or suffering from abuse to do with past situations. Coral may have been intensely hurt or rejected so it can push others away and live like a hermit with little concern for self. There may be a sense of exclusion, of being “lost”.

This colour can show emotional need.  A need to be isolated, and just as strongly, a need to be needed.  A deep need to belong to something. Dependency issues can arise within coral. 

The need for Coral is

“To belong”

An affirmation suitable for this colour is

“The love I give is freely returned”

Of course, this won’t happen just by saying it once off. Each and every time you feel unworthy or stuck in the past, just focus on the affirmation of your choice.

This colour connects with

Seraphim, angelic beings concerned with humans and human conditions

The physical areas associated the bridging of the “yellow” and “pink“ together in Coral are the colon – (holding on) and absorption of both toxins or nourishment. It can therefore connect to the bones / skeleton. Coral sits in the pelvic area and can enhance sensuality and stimulate the senses.  

Crystals / Gems

That may provide assistance with these issues

Crystals / gems (in their coral form) that may be of benefit to wear are Coral and combinations of the “yellow” or “pink” gems and you may find wearing or using these and other coral items provides assistance when dealing with any of these Coral issues.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Coral isn’t your favourite colour?  Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you are connected and have confidence – and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about coral sheets (or just the pillowcase) or bathe in bath-salts in this gorgeous colour, or you could drink a coral coloured smoothie, eat a Pawpaw.   All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect.
