Color is a form of vibrational energy which affects us on different levels. Subconsciously, we all know how we react to different colors. Red, for instance, stimulates and excites us, while blue is calming and soothing. The color of a candle, or of anything in your immediate environment, is like a key which unlocks a certain compartment of your subconscious mind, and of your entire being. Those who cannot actually see colors can nevertheless feel their vibratory effects, because pigment is matter releasing energy at a certain rate of speed, or wavelength. That wavelength, or frequency activates, or energizes a certain part of your being as it penetrates your sight or your aura. Its impulses are transmitted to your brain along the nerve routes. Each color carries the vibratory effects of one of the Planetary influences, and / or one of the four elements - Earth, Fire, Air, or Water.
