About Colour Purple Energy
- The key to understanding the purple vibration is to see how its component colours, red and blue, work together; red is dynamic while blue is quietening. Purple brings a new dynamism to blue’s still qualities, and stability to the frenetic activity of red. Concepts and ideas are thus better are thus better able to find better application in the presence of purple energy. Purple is associated with imagination and psychic inspiration.
- There is a danger that purple can become very arrogant. When this happens, inspiration becomes fanaticism and megalomania and imagination turns into fantasy and delusion. The purple energy, because it seems to extend beyond current knowledge into unknown regions, can trap the spiritual dreamer in a world of unrealistic wishful thinking.
- If fantasy about the unknown can be avoided, colour purple energy can bring enlightenment and healing. It integrates energies at all levels, and as healing requires the building up of new systems (red), according to accurate information (blue), so purple energy can accelerate healing, both physical and emotional.
- The skill of intergration is aided by purple vibration. As the colour combines opposite energies, so it can also help people who need to work with an array of disparate things.
- Purple is associated with the richness and diversity of ceremony, and with rulers and spiritual masters. Clergymen, musicians and painters all work with the colour purple energy.
- Humility is a key aspect, but negative purple can be belligerent and treacherous.

Purple light should never be directed onto the face, only to the back of the head. It should be used sparingly as long exposures may be depressing. It is not recommended for use with children. The antidote to an overload of purple is exposure to golden light.
