The Benefits and Healing Properties of Violet

The color Violet and its entire spectrum from deep purple to lavender has a great deal to offer humanity. Violet has often been referred to as the color of royalty. It was used by the emperors of Rome for ceremonial garb and common folk were prohibited from wearing the “imperial” color.

In the Chakra system, violet is represented in the highest Chakra, the crown Chakra which extends from the hairline to the top of the head. This Chakra is connected with the highest functions of mankind: harmony, peace and the ability to connect with the realms of spirit.

Since ancient times, many types of violet stones have been used to enhance our connection to the Divine. Amethyst is the most common of these stones. It was one of the gemstones in the breastplate of the high priest of Israel. The breastplate was worn when the priest was acting as an oracle.
Amethyst is used by many psychics to strengthen spiritual visions and messages. The gemstone Sugalite, another purple stone, enhances spiritual love.

Violet is known as the color of healing and transformation and the wide variety of purple to lavender gemstones and minerals incorporate this healing ability. Violet is the color used by the Ascended Master St. Germain. In many of his writings he describes the Violet Flame of Consuming Love. One may visualize the flame surrounding oneself and ask it to transform any negative feelings and emotions. (Details may be found in the I Am Discourses available from the Center for the New Age.)

Amethyst helps many types of physical disorders. It has been used for headaches, insomnia, hearing difficulties and addictions. And in today’s world where stress related disorders are manifest, the use of violet gemstones can be very helpful in dissipating these conditions.

Carry purple fluorite to discourage chaos and disorder. It helps bring one back into balance. Labradorite is a gemstone that has a tranquilizing effect upon people. It is found to aid in stress reduction and to help people come out from under the cloud of depression and despair. Some Labradorite earrings or a pendant can work wonders.

The violet gemstones can also help strengthen our connection to the Divine. Sugalite is a mineral that makes it easier to feel spiritual love and unity. It opens all the Chakras so that the Kundilini (life force) energy can emerge from the base of the spine. Sugalite also promotes forgiveness, an important quality to achieve for those wishing to walk the spiritual path.

As you can see, there are many ways that violet can brighten our day.

If you have had a hard day at work, school or with the kids, light a purple candle, put some lavender oil behind your ears and under your nose and lie down. Place a violet scarf over your eyes, listen to some soothing music and you will see that peace of mind is not far away at all.
