Color Your Life: Awakening to Color
and Consciousness with Crystals
By Margaret Ann Lembo
As spring arrives, the
palette of colors comes into bloom again. As the sun returns to the sign of
Aries to stir another level of awareness, so do the colors of life. The renewal
at this time of year brings about the coloring of eggs from an old tradition.
Closets of clothes change — from darker tones of blacks, browns and burnt
orange to pastels of blue, pink, yellow, purple and green — to reflect the
Every season and cycle of
life brings out different shades, tones, gems and colors. In the seasons of
life, we change as well as the favored color and gemstone. When I was a child, bright
red was my favorite color. As an adult, cobalt blue is my favorite color. I
wear cobalt-framed eye glasses, drink from cobalt blue quaffs, use a blue
iPhone cover, wear a sapphire ring and a lot of cobalt
shirts. The color keeps me calm and aligned with higher consciousness.
Choose your wardrobe and
gemstone jewelry for the day based upon the desired outcome of planned
activities. Do you take notice of the color of a friend’s clothes to encourage
understanding? You might notice their gemstone jewelry, but do you know why
they chose that ring or bracelet today? You can “read” others by the colors
Colors and gems influence the
way we feel, act and react to others. The colors you are drawn to are
revealing. The same is true with gemstone jewelry, as well as the colors of
foods. Colors show a need for comfort and love, or a need to be heard. They
show when it’s time to get motivated and take action, or the need for more time
in contemplation and prayer.
Whether it is the color of
your clothes, the walls of your office, or the food you eat — wear it, paint
it, eat it, or admire it with a matching intention.
Everything vibrates. All
vibration has a sound and color associated. All thoughts create reality. Match
colors and gemstones you wear, or carry the thought forms that create your
desired outcome and watch a beautiful reality unfold.
What colors and crystal do
you choose to aid you throughout this next cycle? Choose from the colors of the
rainbow to help you make more conscious choices in the way you dress and in all
you do. Chakras — the energy centers of our body, mind and spirit — can be
aligned from head to toe by matching your intention with the color of your
outfit and accessories.
Brown, black or red for
power, grounding and focus. Choose black tourmaline or garnet.
Orange to birth those great
ideas into reality. Carnelian and orange calcite facilitate this intention.
Yellow to shine your magnificence
and fabulosity. Use citrine and golden topaz to
polish up your self-confidence.
Green and pink to be
compassionate and kind. With jade and rose quartz in hand, open your heart.
Blues to express your
authentic self with wisdom. Adorn your neck with aquamarine and turquoise to
allow the Divine to speak through you.
Purple to bring forth
inspired living. Amethyst encourages intuition.
White to align with purity
and clarity. Diamonds and selenite are sure to activate the connection higher
The choice is always up to
you. How will you spring forward in this next cycle of your life? Allow the
colors of spring to enliven your connection to the Divine in your everyday
life. Inspire yourself. Inspire your friends and colleagues. Live fully and remember
you are love!
