I can be a bit loose with words in on occasion and have found myself telling someone to use a violet flame to burn the blocked energies out of their aura, replacing the vacuum-like space created with a beautiful color of light. 'A real flame?!' they might exclaim in shock and horror.
No, just a visualized flame. Imagine a flame in your mind, like a torch, that you focus on particular parts of your body where you feel energy is stuck. This might be the heart where you feel pain and constriction, or the abdomen where you feel tight or blocked. Some people feel their throat is the challenging body part indicating difficulty in speaking out clearly, while others fraught with worry imagine their head filled with wandering or obsessive thoughts.
If all of the above is true you can imagine sitting in a violet bonfire and burning everything all at once.
Then, always fill the areas you have cleansed with the flame, imagining a beautiful color of light drawn in from the heavens. The light should be clear and pure in tone, and generally a color stays in more easily than white light.
'Will this work?' is often the next question. Yes, this will work. Our minds are our creative force. We are always creating with our thoughts. Intentional thoughts of anything ultimately create our reality, yet working with energetic pictures such as flame and light will create new realities more easily than simply thinking of the words.
Thus, breathing into the power chakra (in the solar plexus area), feeling a constriction, allowing an image to come into your mind, then burning that image with violet flame and then filling the area with a soothing yellow/golden light (the color that resonates most deeply with that chakra), will work more quickly to calm stress and lack of motivation than a hundred affirmations of 'I am calm'.
So, change your life by changing your mind. But remember to change your mind with pictures.
