Course Description

Working with color is a powerful practice that you use everyday to create magic in every aspect of your life. You can use color to bring your heart felt dreams alive; to energize; to heal; to give you clear direction in your life.

Discover how to utilize and visualize color to positively improve your emotions. 

Join us as we use color as a means to discover and realign our dreams together.  You may also use color to strategically help influence the emotions and actions of others by what you choose to wear. Did you know that color increases brand recognition by 80%? Discover which colors will best serve your dreams, ideas, your message of who you are and where you are headed.

Discover the main chakra system and how to use color to influence them. Chakras are our life force or vital energy. Some call them “the spinning wheels of light" located all over your body. The role of the chakra system is to be able to regulate the flow of our energy force or what we commonly know as aura. Once our energy force is blocked due to the many challenges and emotional roller coasters we find ourselves in, we may become ill – not only physically and mentally, but also emotionally. Discover how to use color to reverse this trend.

You will be given basic tools to allow you to see the auras that surround all thing things. With practice this vision will open for you.

Abundant blessings to you all on this color filled day.

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction: Welcome and Meet Your Instructors (Kristen and Sharon)
02:19

Welcome dear student friends,

When two worlds collide amazing things happen. The academic and the witch together in one course offering to bring you our shared excitement about the wonder of color. Whilst we may come from entirely different backgrounds, our love of teaching and the gifts we both bring to the table are here for you all. Dive in and indulge your senses as we share our humble color offering with you all.

In color and light

Kristen and Sharon

02:53

In this lecture, Kristen will give a brief introduction to color and explain what it is and how both visible and non visible color is perceived by humans, animals, and even mediums tapping into the spiritual realm. Next we'll start to get into how we can tap into the power of color to affect ourselves and those around us for the better.

02:41

For this lecture please gather a journal or some blank pieces of paper. Color pencils, pens, crayons. We are going to draw through visualisation together using a "color waterfall". If drawing does not come naturally to you, try to either doodle or write without censoring yourself. Try not to pre-empt just create as you see. Most importantly - have fun!

Section 2: Wearable Wonder: Using Color in Your Daily Life
11:22

Use color to impact your mood and influence others. 

This lecture comes from Kristen's larger, in-depth course Life Hack With Color Psychology: Increase Your Influence. Start with learning how color can dramatically influence yourself and those around you, specifically with choosing colors to wear. 

Those practicing color therapy and color healing also choose specific colors to wear to help bring more balance to their spiritual life, feel more energized or at peace, and to help heal and protect against illness.


01:19

We all need to become aware and discover our own language when it comes to color. Dare to try something new and go out with it on and see how it feels. Too often we get stuck in a rut, we develop "a look" and that is that. Expand and create a new positive image with the passion and wonder of color.

Section 3: Using Color For Healing Yourself and Others
02:43

Color therapy  and healing has been used for thousands of years across many cultures and is widely practiced today. This lesson is a very brief introduction to the world of color and its applications and uses around the world throughout history. 

Whether you are most interested in the scientifically proven effects of color on human physiology and psychology or the more spiritual and religious application of color, start here. Please also have a look at all the additional resources and links throughout the course for further study.

08:47

Seven chakras, seven colours, seven rays of wisdom,... In order to manifest everything that you desire, you must learn how to live in harmony with the bigger picture and find your own place as a member of the human family, there are no shortcuts. That is why skipping straight to abundance as many have done will leave you wanting and wondering where it all went awry. We have as a matter of course to chart as a steppingstone, in this course we are using colour as a descriptor to apply to the chakra system we commonly find. Please note there are many more chakras than this. Be open to discovering more than you came for.

Faith, base, muladhara, red. Understand that you are part of a greater plan in this matrix of your time on our Earth mother

Surrender, sacral, svadistana, orange. Find the ultimate liberation and peace through the joy of surrender.

Service, solar plexus, manipuri, yellow. Create heaven on earth through your own good works.

Abundance, heart, anahata. green. Attract joy and fulfillment through gratitude

Forgiveness, throat, visshudda, blue. Release anger and resentment

Overcome obstacles, third eye, ajni, indigo. Know that you can master temptation

Love, crown, sahasraha, violet. Tap into the greatest power of all

06:56

Color therapy comes in many forms . . .

  • Colored light
  • Color acupuncture
  • Breathing color
  • Creating art
  • Visualizing colors
  • Drinking water energized by certain colors
  • Wearing colors
  • Creating an environment with certain colors
  • Eating foods of different colors

Each form can affect you and may be used in combination with other forms.  We live in a time and age where we are fortunate to have both the wonders of modern medical science as well as alternative medicine and ancient healing wisdom used for for thousands of years by our ancestors.

This lesson will talk about what the main seven colors of the rainbow bring to the table in terms of healing potential.

Obviously we do not recommend color therapy as the ONLY treatment for healing ailments, especially serious or life-threatening ones. However our goal is to give you these powerful color tools that you can use in creating a happier and healthier mind, body, and spirit in combination with traditional and alternative medicine and practices.

Please see the additional resources and links for more information.

05:57

Together during this section we will explore food and the rainbow of colorful food that resonate with our chakras. 

The best way I can describe how the color feeds and feels is to offer you this Yukti number 25 (yoga meditation practice) from the ancient Vijnana Bhairava Tantra body of work as translated by Lorin Roche. This oft translated 5000 year old ancient Indian text on meditation is considered by many as the last word on meditation. They leave me spellbound.If you find yourself captivated them Amazon have the book in Kindle and paperback. It is called "The Radiant Sutra: 112 Gateways To The Yoga of Wonder and Delight" by Lorin Roche.

Radiant One,

The essence of life carries on its play

Through pulsing rhythm

Of outward and inward movement.

This is the ceaseless throb, the rhythm of life

Terrifying in its eternity, exquisite in its constancy.

The inhalation, the return movement of breath,

Sustains life.

The outgoing breath

Purifies life.

These are the two poles

Between which respiration goes on unceasingly.

Between them is every delight you could desire.

Even when the senses are turned outward,

Your attention on the external world.

Attend also to the inner throb,

The pulsing of the creative impulse within you.

(a yukti from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra)

This is a mini case study to help you take what you are learning and put it to practical use. Begin using the power of color together with the medicinal benefits of food to help ward off and fight the common cold.

05:45

We can all see auras to some degree. There is no mystery for those with eyes to see. We can all acquire this skill with a little patience and curiosity. It is not accident nor miracle that nearly everyone (including children) sees a similar thing - it is simply an integral part of the vibration of nature. 

Everything in the Universe has a vibration. Every atom, every cell vibrates with consciousness, even our thoughts are just vibrations.

This lecture gives you an easy entry into your birth-rite - your ability to see, to see for the first time in many a long year gone. Dare to see, for in seeing, far more will be revealed.

"I want to feel both the beauty and the pain of the age we are living in. I want to survive my life without becoming numb. I want to comprehend words of wounding without these words becoming the landscape where I dwell. I want to possess a light touch that can elevate darkness to the realm of the stars" Terry Tempest Williams.

06:38

So after we have practiced looking at auras and are able to first see the energy field surrounding all living things, the next step is starting to see the colors embedded in them. 

In this lesson I'll explain the general meaning of each major color and what they mean when seen in a human aura. Please note that there are many variations on tone and intensity of colors and that most auras contain a combination of colors. 

See the extra resources to learn more about this fascinating subject.

06:46

We are multi faceted beings of light. 

Did you know that each level of the aura has its own seven chakras? These are nested within the other auric chakras. As each layer extends outwards, the chakras vibrate at higher rates. Thus the chakras within your etheric body will be vibrating at a much lower frequency then the chakras within the causal body. Thus your base chakra will have seven major chakras, all vibrating at different frequencies. 

It is in this way, energy can be transmuted between all bodies to all chakras. 

NB: There are many chakras, for this course however we will only focus on the seven that run up and down the central channel "Sushuma". If you are interested in chakras take a peek at my other courses! 

Section 4: Color Excercises for Boosting Creativity, Manifestation, & Artistic Exploration
02:02

Welcome, do you have a lazy dream that has been hanging around you. That one that nags you every now and again? Well it is time to act on it!. 

"Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know" Pema Chodron

07:29

“To see things in the seed, that is genius.” Lao Tsu. When you dare to follow your hearts desire you will be able to unleash your creative capacity for living an authentic intuitive life. 

Join me as we use the visualisation of a seed growing into full bloom, use it to bring your lazy dreams into a conscious reality. 

Everything that is the reality of the flower is contained in the seed. All that you are is contained in that spark inside you, a feeling that arises from your core. Find the seed. Feed the dream. Work the thoughts into a reality. It is the heart. It is you.

09:59

You are the sky, everything else is just weather.

"Drop your maps and listen to your lostness like a sacred calling into Presence, here where the old ways are crumbling and you might be tempted to burn down your whole house. Ask instead for an introduction to that which endures.This place without a foothold is the province of grace. It is the questing field, most responsive to magic and fluent in myth. Here, where there is nothing left to lose, sing out of necessity that your ragged heart be heard. Send out your holy signal and listen for the echo back" Toko-Pa

13:29

Chakras are our life force or vital energy. Some call them “the spinning wheels of light" located all over your body. Although we have thousands of them, but there are seven major chakras located along our spine from the base to just above our head that we need to focus on. The role of the chakra system is to be able to regulate the flow of our energy force or what we commonly known as aura. Once our energy force is blocked due to the many challenges and emotional roller coaster we find ourselves in, it is not surprising that we get sick – not only physically, mentally, but also emotionally.

The chakras are wheel-like vortices of energy which connect the physical body to its subtle energetic counterparts. In this article we'll take a look at the seven main chakras, which play a key role in energy reception and transmutation. 

The chakra system has been extensively studied and described in Eastern systems of philosophy and medicine, although Western science remains skeptical their very existence. Nonetheless, awareness of the body as an energy system is increasing among forward-thinking scientists, and the chakras along with meditation continue to play an important role in a variety of holistic healing disciplines.

Together during this section we will explore the colours that resonate with our chakras and how to do a mini chakra cleanse by visualising the colours spinning in unison with our chakras, the colour starts as a light hue and becomes it pure colour as the residues and heavy energies are released from the chakra. We will do the for the main seven chakras that run up and downs the central channel sushuma. 

The best way I can describe how the color of life dreams and feels is to offer you this Yukti number 25 (yoga meditation practice) from the ancient Vijnana Bhairava Tantra body of work as translated by Lorin Roche.

Instructor Biography

Sharon Ramel, Spiritual Guide, Yogini, Mentor, Healer, Shaman, Witch

Offering spirit based courses to encourage kindfulness and peace within each and everyone of us. Every student is personally welcomed by me. In addition I perform a small sacred offering of drumming, rattling or chanting for every person to bring us into the sacred space of the courses. These course offerings have active discussion boards/forums. Please share your stories in our sacred space as they move to enrich us all. Let us plant the seeds of inspiration and love together.

I believe in “personal spirituality” and the ability we each have to create a path for ourselves that is of our own making. There are often criticisms against people who create a personal spiritual path for themselves, taking a little Buddhist meditation and adding in a bit of drumming, and then a healthy dose of yoga and some trance dancing for good measure. Interestingly, this is simply judgmental language to label this “cafeteria spirituality”. Whilst I do not advocate that people go from course to course, book to book, finding elements of the sacred within certain practices and adopting them is fine by me!

It is very empowering  knowing what we know in our hearts and claiming it, regardless of whether or not it is popular or approved of by others. Within my courses I try my best to provide the resources that support “the spiritual journey” because it is that Mystery that I serve. I am not inspired to serve something made by humans, controlled by humans, and manipulated by us so we can fulfil.

Weaving magic, spirituality and crafting with nature is the way of my ancestors. It is a gift we all have deep within the core of our beings. However it has been beaten and educated out of us. It is time to reclaim who we really are. What are you waiting for? Over 10,000 people have enrolled in my classes. 

I stand here with you all as a woman who embodies the elemental innocence of my youth, the transformational growth of middle age, the welcoming dignity, compassion, and acceptance of my crone years, I embrace the growth and  wisdom of my future years as they unfold.

Abundant blessings on your path.

I believe in the gift of giving back; a percentage of my income is donated to a range of charities. This month being December 2016 money has been donated to the global conservation group "Tree Sisters - The Million Trees Campaign" - this is a not-for-profit organisation working to assist and rehabilitate forests, their initial aim has been reached - to fund the planting of one million trees in a year. Once we have achieved this, we will then aim for One Million Trees per month, then per week, and then per day - which we will achieve when 700,000 of us are standing for the trees. Are you with us?
