Looking For The One? Turn On Your Love Lights!

August 28, 2009

In this article, I’d like to offer you a few simple techniques that are sure to get your love lights cranked up to full brightness so that you shine forth- attracting the right love into your life!

In searching for- and more importantly, being open to finding true love- there are many layers of the self that must be healed. From fear of a bad situation preventing you from manifesting a great one to low self-value… way more deep psych than anyone really wants to go through! But to really connect with loving partners who facilitate (not make!) our happiness, we have to be open and empowered on every level of our being. If our heart (pure love) wants something different than our brains (fear, logic, the past) then we might as well call it quits!

In these simple yet powerful techniques, we will be going straight to the source of emotions, body and mind… living life energy! Working in this manner waters the root of the tree instead of all the leaves on at a time and by gently changing the energy- the rest just falls right into place!

Turn On Your Love Lights!

In past articles I have explained the huge power of color in energy work. Color, like sound, is one of the most pure and reflexive symbols for life energy that we have to work with, Subtle, vibrating and sometime elusive- color links us to specific forces of energy for healing, empowerment and joy!

In this practice, we’re going to work with color to harmonize your energetic bodies, help loosen and remove blockages preventing true loving relationships and help you glow in the dark so the right one can’t miss you!

As in all meditation practices I teach- please value your time and space as sacred by making sure you will not be disturbed. Get comfortable, use music, candles, oils and incense as desired and make sure to turn off your phone! This is your sacred, well deserved space- the more energy you put into making it a special time, the more attention you’ll get from your inner-self and from spiritual allies as well! A special pink candle lit only during this practice would be most powerful! Roses or rose fragrance as well as symbols of love are also nice to have around if you can get them easily and they mean something to you personally.

  • Take a few moments to get comfortable- either sitting or lying down. Make sure the back is well supported and the heart-center and throat areas are not restricted by jewelry or tight clothing
  • Begin your session by simply feeling love for yourself. Tap into your power, your value, your accomplishments, talents, beauty and personality. Love on yourself for a few moments to get the right energy moving!
  • You may wish to say a prayer, affirmation, intention or petition at this point to clarify why you are doing this practice. Let every level of your being as well as the limitless universe around you know why you’re here and what you expect to accomplish so they can give you full support!
  • Begin the meditation visualization by simply feeling the energy of love in your heart center. Allow it to grow deeper and stronger with each inhalation. As you start to really feel it- let it take on the color pink (No matter your gender, pink is a highly attractive vibrational frequency for unconditional love!).
  • Let the pink light within slowly grow larger with each breath. Draw pink in from the limitless love of the universe on your inhalation, and push it into your center to expand your own love light on the exhalation.
  • Continue making your light bigger and bigger- first it encompasses all of your body, then several feet around you, then the room you’re in, then city, state, country, continent… keep going until you feel as though your light occupies all of infinity!

  • Hold this light for as long as you can. Simply being in this vibration will start aligning things on many levels. You are welcome to state or meditate on affirmations or prayers for attracting love while in this space as long as you can also continue to hold the light in your minds eye.
  • Know that as your light expands, it is reaching those souls who are most ideal for you in this lifetime and calling them. Feel several connections being made- and if you feel nothing, fake it! Imagine a few mystery figures being surprised by this loving energy, encapsulated in it, then deeply connected and attentive to you. This is a time when powerful psychic revelations about your love might come to you!
  • Once you feel some connections have been made- begin slowly pulling your light back in. Go with a pace that feels natural and that your own minds eye can keep up with. Don’t rush the call back!
  • As the light finally returns fully to your heart center, know that it has created deep healing, openness to pure love, removed blockages within that prevent love from coming to you and also created connections to help ‘draw forth’ your mate!

After your session is finished, say several words of gratitude for what has happened. Again, if you felt nothing- be grateful for what you’d like to feel and know for sure next time!

This meditation should be practiced weekly, especially on Fridays, until your lover manifests. Each time you practice, you’ll go deeper into a state of deep meditative trance and will experience deeper levels of healing. You’ll also notice yourself changing very easily in small ways as minor adjustments to your energy are made that quickly reflect in your conscious life… this is you getting back on track with who you are and what you deserve- true love!

The Best Of The Worst

One of the most common reasons I see in clients for not attracting new love is that they have not healed from past love. We all get burned- and sometimes it’s really intense. From hard breakups to cheating, loss to drama, relationships can end for countless reasons- but if we hold onto that loss, we’re blocking the change!

This exercise can be extremely difficult for some- but I promise you that it will not only help you feel a whole lot better, it will also heal, release, clear, cleanse and open your loving nature to the real love you deserve!

Work this exercise when you have alone time and are feeling calm and joyful. This is not an exercise that should be performed when you feel lonely, negative or sad!

  • Grab a pen and a piece of paper (yay! It’s homework time!).
  • Begin your session with prayer, affirmation, intention or petition- whatever feels right for you.
  • Now, write down the names of every significant lover, partner, etc. you can recall.
  • For each name you wrote down (and this is the heavy part), I want you to write down as many positive qualities about that relationship as you can. List everything you loved about that person. What was perfect? What attracted you to them in the first place? What was that special thing they did that kept your attention? Write it all down- only the great stuff! If negativity comes up, dismiss it gently and go back to the positive.

  • It might help to imagine that you are taking all of your past karmic relationships and extracting all the good stuff to create a new, perfect mate who lacks all the bad qualities and expresses all the great ones!
  • DO NOT judge your emotions during this process. Give yourself loving permission to cry, laugh, smile, etc. These emotions are releases and need to be allowed freedom to come out so they don’t just go hide again!

So, what did you just do?

You made it clear to yourself and to the universe what you’re into. You opened up some old wounds and acknowledged the love that was there so healing and release could take place. You cleared some cobwebs, released old cords to make room for new ones. You got deeply in touch with what works for you in a relationship. You let go of guilt or judgment that you had about yourself regarding past decisions and behaviors. Awesome!

Become What You Desire!

Ok, so this one is completely silly and most of you probably won’t do it- but I swear it’s a powerhouse for tapping into your self-value, injecting some light and love into your consciousness and really helping you and the universe get on the same page about what works for you in relationships. It’s also a ton of fun if you can let go and just play with it!

To put it simply- when you’re hanging out around the house, in the car, etc. I want you to talk to yourself as though you are your lover. Speak out loud (probably not wise to do this in public haha!) and say the things to yourself you’d like to hear from someone else. Comment on how great dinner was, ow amazing you look after losing just 3 pounds, how nice the house looks, etc. Invite yourself to dinner, make plans, tap in!

This exercise is completely off the wall- but it’s also completely powerful! It allows you to:

  • Acknowledge the wonderful things about yourself so that others can do the same (you know that whole ‘people can only love you as much as you love yourself’ thing? It’s true!).
  • Move energy into your life that is right on target with honing in, manifesting and progressing a seriously wonderful loving relationship.
  • Puts a smile on your face, warmth in your heart, clear orders on the cosmic wish list
  • And most of all- let’s you have some crazy fun with love energy which is something many of us don’t have much experience with!

In addition to all that, serious deep healing is taking place without you having to re-live any of the old wounds… sounds like good medicine to me!

Get What’s Coming To You!

I want you to believe like I believe how much each of us deserves bliss, joy, health, spiritual connection, abundance and progress in this life. None of us is special in this regard- it’s simply a literal birth-right for every single one of us! If you aren’t experiencing those things now- then something is not on track and it’s time to help you remember what’s out there for you!


With prayers & Blessings to all who’s eyes fall upon these words that pure love and Divine blessings with flow into you freely and abundantly…

Self-Healing With The Breath Of Color

August 17, 2009

We don’t live in a black & white world. Surrounding us at all times is a vast array of colors, each carrying a special vibration of cosmic energy. Just like sound, each color we perceive vibrates at a unique frequency- allowing us to perceive on the physical and spiritual levels what it’s about.

If you didn’t get a chance to read my article entitled “The Spectrum Of Power“, please do so now, it will introduce you to the fundamental and spiritual aspects of color healing and will give you a cletr understanding of how and why color heals so that in this article we can get right to the powerful self-healing techniques! You can check out that article by clicking here!

What Is The Breath Of Color?

Color is a healing force, just like sound, herbal remedies, visualization, etc. It reflects light and life- as each color vibration is a specific and unique manifestation of the Divine primal vibrations respectively. Breath and breathing connect us to air, which is the vehicle of life energy. It just seems appropriate to put the two together! Inhaling color, allowing it’s light to absorb into the body via the energy-packed air we draw in.

In Breath of Color practice, we simply use our breathing as a way to consciously open up to and fully absorb the specific color vibration we need to work with.

So, I’m supposed to inhale color? How’s that work?

You got it! We’re going to be inhaling pure color vibration! Sound a little odd? Good! The I’ve got your attention 🙂

Deep inside your brain is a mysterious, powerful and super-tiny little miracle called the pineal gland. Believe it or not- this gland, nowhere near the surface of your body, has rods & cones just like your eyes! It’s essentially capable of detecting and perceiving LIGHT! In addition, for thousands of years mystics have understood that the pineal gland is the physical link to the ethereal ‘third eye chakra’- that is, the chakra of spiritual sight!

The secret of the pineal gland is that it is not necessarily meant to perceive light from outside the body- but rather from inside! The light we create through visualization and meditation is perceived (whether it is actually created by the firing of neurons and the photons in cerebral spinal fluid is debatable, but not very important in this practice as a while anyway) by the spiritual and physical abilities of both the pineal gland and the third eye  center (ajna chakra) and thus we are able to process this event at all.

So, in color breathing…

  • We visualize calling the color in from the outside
  • See and perceive this process from the inside (intuitively, creative visualization, third eye center, etc.), and
  • Work with the breath to engage the body in the process

By this method, we are engaging the spiritual, energetic and physical aspects of the body- plus the logical mind and the emotions to some degree- thus making it a truly holistic practice that can effect many levels of our being!

The practice

Getting started is pretty easy! Here are the steps involved… we’ll cover each in turn in the next few sections…

  • Define your goal for doing the practice and define the color you’re going to work with
  • Get your meditation & healing space set up
  • run the visualization technique

It’s just that simple… and colorful!

Defining your goal and selecting a color

Most situations of color work revolve around physical or emotional healing. I also use it on personal goals like abundance, communication, relationships, etc. for my clients. You’ll want to spend some time creating a clear, present, positive and direct statement about what you want to get from the healing session- and state it as though it’s already happened. Some examples of this may include: ‘I am completely connected to the flow of limitless abundance & prosperity’, ‘I am happy and healthy’, ‘My lungs are healthy and receiving limitless blessings in the form of pure air (asthma)’, etc. You phrase should be pithy, clear, and easy to say- it should roll off the tongue with and be enjoyable to repeat.

Once you have your goal- you’ll want to connect it to an appropriate color. Listing every color is far beyond the scope of this article- but you have a ton of great resources at your fingertips right here online! Try typing ‘color healing’, ‘healing colors’, ‘healing _____ with color’, etc. into and explore! You may want to check a few sites for different suggestions. As always- make sure the color you choose feels right for you! You can also go into prayer or channeling space and ask the dis-ease or imbalance itself, or your higher self, spiritual guide, etc. what color would be best for this situation.

Set up your meditation & healing space

Here are a few tips to make the most out of your session:

  • unplug the phone, turn off your cell phone
  • post a note on the door asking for privacy
  • turn off anything noisy or distracting (computer, a/c, etc.)
  • Have a cup of relaxing herbal tea 30 minutes prior to your session

  • Collect some items from around the house or garden in the color you are going to work with. Assemble them near you. Candles in the color you choose are a great way to add literal color-charged light to your space! (flowers, cloth, candles, pottery, photos, etc.)
  • Dress in your chosen color if you can- or wrap a cloth in your color around the part of your body where the issue resides. For goals, choose a part of the body that symbolized your goal to you (love- heart center, success- hands/feet, abundance- solar plexus, etc.- trust and use your intuition!)
  • Feel free to play meditative music, light incense or burn candles safely during your session
  • Consider taking a cleansing bath before your session to honor the sanctity of the healing space and to rid your field of any energetic debris
  • Consider beginning your session with prayer, invocation, offerings, etc. to help open up the Divine channel

The Self-Healing Breath Of Color Technique

Read through this flow a few times to set it in memory- then step away from the light and vibration of the computer to work it. As always, feel free to change, add, subtract, etc. as you feel to make it your own!

  • Define your goal into a pithy phrase as described earlier. Choose your color.
  • Softly repeat your goal phrase as you prepare your meditation space, take a cleansing bath, etc.
  • Get comfy- sit or lie down. If you lie down, try placing a firm pillow under your knee caps to avoid falling asleep.
  • clear, ground, center… get focused anyway you like. Prayer, affirmations, etc. all help to settle and focus the mind.

  • Now, close your eyes and call forth the color. Make sure and use the color and the goal in the same sentence. i.e. ‘I call forth the pure energy of green, healer of the heart, to surround and enlighten me’
  • Imagine your space being literally flooded with vibrant, pulsing color. NO dull, muddy, mixed colors! Go pure and bright!
  • Feel the light on the outside, and also perceive it within. Call it forth as many times as needed in whichever way works. See it pouring into your space through a portal, from an angels hands, from a Divine form, from the stars, from the earth below, etc. Get it in anyway you can!
  • Now, begin methodically and gently breathing. As you breathe in and out- repeat your phrase.
  • On the inhalation, feel the color coming in through the breath into the core of your body. Expand the stomach- don’t breathe shallowly with the shoulders.
  • Hold the breath after the inhalation for a moment to feel the energy pulsing (it will get stronger with each breath- feel free to fake it until you make it!(
  • On the exhalation, see the pure, bright, pulsing light in your core expand to saturate every fiber of your being to about 12″ away from your body. An alternative method is to push out dark, toxic, muddy junk on the exhale and breathe the color in fully on the inhale.
  • Hold, feel a moment of gratitude for the healing/empowerment that is taking place, repeat!

As with all breath-work exercises: be gentle, take breaks to let your breathing become natural if you feel dizzy, etc. If you have medical issues that may be irritated by deep breathing, talk to your doctor before working this technique.

Once you feel the energy color has ‘set’….

  • Run through the full color of the rainbow- taking one breath for each color. This helps balance out the vibrations within and helps avoid getting too heavy in one vibration…
  • Use this pattern: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Indigo, White.
  • Breathe a color in, then breathe it out, then move to the next color until you’ve run them all. You can spend up to three breath cycles on each color if you choose, but one is perfect!

After the full spectrum practice, gentle let your breath regain normal pace, start feeling your healing and spend some time expressing and FEELING gratitude for it. Slowly bring yourself out of meditation by wriggling toe and fingers, then limbs, then gently opening the eyes.

Thank You!

I hope you enjoy your new ownership of this wonderful and effective healing tool! Use it anytime you desire, and apply color healing to your life with intention to tap into cosmic power par excellence!

Wishing you colorful healing, peace & great blessings…
