On our rainbow journey we’ve explored the visible spectrum from rousing reds through mellow yellows to vibrant violets. This splendid spectral array of the rain “bow” is actually only half of a sphere that follows the laws of physics and balances polarities.
The invisible half of the rainbow sphere remains a mystery that may support the higher emotional and spiritual dimensions of who we are. Nature dazzles us with a spectacular pink contrast of a visiting Zebra butterfly.
Now, let your imagination blossom …
The influence of spectral red shifts as it’s combined with white giving us pink tones, becoming peach/pink to pure peach when closer to spectral orange or yellow, and magenta when it approaches spectral violet. Each of these frequencies is associated with unique spiritual aspects for its vibrational quality and appeal.
Blush of Pink
When the fiery reds associated with physical passion are cooled by cloudlike white they soften to rosy pink representing chastity, pure love, and romance. Pink’s an uplifting hue that signifies a euphoric state of openness. It’s the color of youth and innocence.
When we’re ‘in the pink’ we’re feeling well and in good spirits and when ‘tickled pink’ we’re delighted and rosy-faced with laughter. In nature pink is one of the most common flower colors, with blooms like roses, hyacinths, tulips, and magnolias.
Life’s a Color Wheel
Contrasting with the green vegetation backdrops of spring their youthful fresh appeal attracts bees for pollination and plant procreation. Journeying around a spherical color wheel both green and pink can hold their own attributes but together they create produce like the thirst-quenching and entirely edible watermelon.
Both a seed-bearing fruit and a member of the vegetable family that includes squash, pumpkin, and cucumber, its delicate juicy sweet pink flesh is protected from the sun by its thick white rind and tough bitter green skin.
Pink is associated with sweet flavors, like strawberry and raspberry, and tickles our fancy in play and art. It’s sometimes associated with the exotic and being noticed, as are pink sand beaches, pink diamond engagement rings, and pink-shaded coming-of-age dresses, soft blush powder and as a hint for lipstick.
Get ready to apply a welcoming flow of pink light into the aura, especially over the sacral and heart chakras, to give emotional warmth and comfort. It’s an uplifting sensation that prompts the heart at a deep level to trust in the process of being in the present moment and supported as the flow of our life force moves us along on our journey. Joyful pink intent may lift the veil of sadness so it can be addressed, and encourages receptivity for heartfelt love, including self-love and understanding.
Life’s a Peach
Pink influenced by orange or yellow becomes peach, named after the skin color of the sweet fruit. In the 1950s, if something was said to be ‘peachy keen’ it was special and a bit exciting. ‘Life’s a peach’ extols the wonders of a happy life, but it’s not always peachy keen so we need to work through things, and this vibration can support our process. If ‘you’re a peach’ it’s a sign of gratitude for your generosity or kindness.
Peachy keen points:
- Peach/pink combines the sweetness of pink with the soft excitement of orange or the warmth of yellow.
- In Chinese culture peach is the color of immortality based on the myth of a peach tree that blooms once every 3,000 years.
- Austrian writer and philosopher (1861-1925), Rudolf Steiner reached the conclusion from spiritual experiences that peach-blossom represents the “living image of the soul”.
— This vibration touches our core essence (!)
Red and violet are at the opposite ends of the visible spectrum on a color wheel that brings our rainbow back into a perfect sphere.
Perhaps this hue is at the meeting point between them, in a chromotherapy practice.
Here’s a few interesting facts …
- When the first artificial dye was made that achieved this unusual color it was named fuchsia, after the flower that inspired it and was later renamed magenta after a town where a historic battle was won.
- Flowers such as clematis and orchid offer some of the greatest contrasts with their complementary green, making them particularly irresistible to pollinating insects. Magenta is used by artists and in the fashion world to shock or draw attention.
- In the 1930s an Italian designer affiliated with the Surrealist movement mixed magenta with a little white and gave the world “shocking pink”, perhaps coloring the way for the 60s psychedelic era of social, musical, and artistic freedom and change.
Lumalight in Action
- During a Lumalight session, shine this hue in the aura from the navel to crown chakras, with intent to open a doorway to higher consciousness.
- Simply draw the light up the aura, and spiral this powerful hue off the crown center, clearing way for pure energy to flow freely in the meridians.
- Think of it as the finishing light touch to conclude a session.
A vibrant rainbow world around us
While the seven spectral colors (red-violet) offer the coloration, taste, and appeal we’re most attuned to consciously, make room for pink, peach/pink, and magenta to influence us beyond rainbow appeal in their influential subtleties, and open the door to possibilities, bringing deeper meaning to our lives.
