Using Color In Magik
- The Significance Of Color
- Think of your magik as a way of joining forces with the energy
in nature. All energy vibrates with it's own sound or frequency,
and it's own color. You want to compliment natures energy with
your own, and with your choice of tools to represent the energy
you are attempting to create. But how do you know what color
goes with what energy? Like all things, it depends on how you
want to approach or utilize the energy.
- You can chose colors based on energy, on the chakra system,
or your personal symbology. For instance, some people make associations
based on culture or society. A good example of this is the use
of color when associated with money or finances. Here in the
U.S., we would associate green with money and finances. But in
other countries that might not make sense as not everyone in
the world has green currency.
- I strongly recommend you write down your correspondences
and keep them up to date. You want to create a consistency with
your workings and maintain a balance. There will always be changes,
but that's expected as you live, grow and learn.
- Within my tradition, we use a color table based on the chakra system.
- A Color Table
- Below is a table of the varying ways to look at or represent
color in your magikal exercises. This is just a guide based on
our view, so don't take this as the only way to represent color
in your magikal exercises. Research and practice for ourself
