Helło! & welcome to day 7 of our 17 days in colour. Today’s magical colour is Purple. Like its counterpart – indigo, Purple is such a mysteriously powerful colour.
Associated strongly with Spirituality, purple is now for its power to transform and bring about clarity in thought & vision. Healing properties: Purple is the colour of transformation healing feelings of melancholy, hysteria, delusions and alcohol addiction, bringing spiritual insight and renewal. This colour slows down an over-active heart; stimulates the spleen and the white blood cells (immunity) bringing deep relaxed sleep. The colour purple when worn or used in decoration, helps to soothe mental and emotional stress bringing complete detoxification of the nervous system. Purple is also associated with the 3rd eye chakra.
Leonardo da Vinci proclaimed that you can increase the power of meditation ten-fold by meditating under the gentle rays of purple, as found in Church windows. Magickal Benefits: Purple is connected with the spirit element and is great for those interested in things such as Divination and prophecy. Angels & Psychic abilities. Purple is a powerful protector colour against psychic or spiritual assault and counter-acting negativity/black magick.

Purple people love and thrive off contemplation, mysticism, spirituality and religion power. A longing to ascend and dissolve polarities (purple consists of the active red and passive blue)
