Making Magic with Colors

There are many ways to work magic, and each person has to decide what ways work best for their own magical practice. Some people prefer to use crystals, while others love to do earth-based magic. Some people practice a tradition of Ceremonial Magic, others primarily work with sympathetic magic, and then there are people who use candles mostly. However, there isanother form of magic that not everyone talks about, and it is a form of magic that pretty much anybody can do, which ismagic using color.

Certain people live their lives in beige, grays, and navy blues, shunning brighter colors because they don’t want to seem too “loud.” Other people thrive picking colors for their homes and wardrobes, and absorb the energies from the pleasures color brings them. What beauty would there be in plates of foods if there was no variety in the dishes, and what would a field of flowers be without the vibrant diversity of the colors? There is magic in color, and you may be using colors to make magic without even knowing it. Colors can be used for glamor and to influence moods. Colors influence us in ways we would never dream of, and color is indeed used for the magic of healing. Besides this, each color has its own magic and energies, and can be used for different things. 

Magic With Colors

Making Magic with Colors

Of all the magical things that are easily accessible, color tops the list. Color can be found everywhere in creation, in both the natural and man-made world. For some people, working with color in their magic might come naturally yet, others might be asking , ”What color should I wear in a first date?” and “How can I use electric blue color energy?” or “What energy healing treatment can I use with color?” Color creates illusions, better called glamor, and color changes moods. 


Color can create effective illusions and work independently for magic. For example, if you want to make a sultry impression, wear red lipstick. Red hair combined with this will work as well. if you don’t want to stand out at all, either opt for neutrals like beiges and navies. You can even select colors that are exactly like the other colors of the surroundings to camouflage, and it can work as an invisibility spell. A design trick that magically makes a space look larger is to have the furniture painted the same color as the walls.This will trick the eye into thinking the space is larger and is often used to sell houses

You can also use color to endear people to you or repel them. Psychologically, it is believed that wearing green makes you look untrustworthy, but if you want to impress someone the first time you meet them, wearing navy slacks with a crisp white shirt or blouse will make you look respectable and sharp. You can also wear what colors you know somebody prefers to make them more comfortable with you when you first meet them.


Colors change moods as well. If the weather has been gray and dreary, and you want to feel more energetic, the color yellow can help with that. While you might not be able to paint your walls, draping yellow curtains, or adding lively yellow themed art to a room will help you feel more alert. Turning on bright lights or opening blinds to allow daylight in can help with this as well. Some people don’t want to be awakened by colors, but want to relax. Soothing colors like blues and soft pastels have been proven to relax people, and today, a lot of people find shades of grays calming. While generally brighter colors and lights rejuvenate, meaning energize people, and darker, softer colors relax, not everybody swears by this.

One thing to remember is that while generally, certain colors create certain moods in peoplel, each of us have our own preferences. Being surrounded by favorite colors makes anybody feel better, and not everybody has a “yellow personality” wanting yellow everywhere to energize them. Some people have a power purple that makes them feel good, and others are not too crazy about colors at all and prefer a white light energy. Finding out what color is your energy favorite will tell you how to use color to enhance mood.


While there are many types of healing, therapeutic energy healing can be done using colors. Of the types of energy healing, healing with a “color bath” is one way to use color to heal. Some people start to feel drained in wintertime and say they are going through a “green withdrawal”. People who move from greener climates to arctic or desert lands sometimes report the same feeling. One way to combat this withdrawal of green energy is to surround yourself with green things. Houseplants or garden plants are one way to do this, but decorating with green, or draping green fabrics over a lamp to bathe the whole room in green light can help with this.

Some people use colors to activate their chakras, using the color that is attributed to the particular chakra they want to strengthen. One way to do this is to wear clothes in the color of that chakra, burn candles in that color, and eat foods that are that color as well. 

Seeing Colors During Meditation

Making Magic with Colors

During meditation, amazing images come into your mind, and some people wonder what it means to only see colors. Seeing colors in meditation can mean a number of things, with the colors possibly meaning things. Sometimes you are visited by spirits, and seeing colors while meditating can indicate the visiting spirit. Colors can also be sending messages. If you have a friend whose favorite color is purple, seeing a purple color during meditation may be telling you to reach out to them, or that you are about to hear from them. Any color seen during meditation can be a psychic message, or it might just be your mind going deeper into meditation.

To find out what is causing the colors to appear during meditation, journal all the things you saw, and pay close attention to what comes to pass afterwards. You might be having déjà vu of something you will experience soon, and the images showed what will soon happen. You may experience a certain feeling when certain colors appear. You might be able to understand what the colors you are seeing mean quickly, but you may have to continue your meditative practices for a while before you understand what the colors mean. 

Energy Healing with Colors

More ways to heal with colors are to heal or transform energy. Light and darkness are two ways to transform the energy of a place. Some people feel blessed by the sun, and others feel more blessed by the moon.Whichever is best suited, you can use those energies to heal yourself and your home. A sun or moon bath can be done by opening all blinds and curtains, and weather permitting, windows and doors, allowing the darkness and light of the moon, or brightness of the sunlight to flood into your space. A Full Moon bath for your ritual working space can bless your space with the power of the Full Moon and cleanse out all impurities.

Each color is believed by many to have its own powers and healing attributes, and many use these powers for magical healing. Green is said to bring growth and ability to have positive change as well as money, and enveloping yourself in green is one way to bring in these blessings. One way to do that is to wear glasses with green lenses, so you see green, or wear all green, even painting or wallpapering a room in green. If you can’t do that, cloth in colors of green can be strung across walls, and a green light bulb can be installed into your lamp. Switch dominant colors out as you want the attributes of other colors and allow the healing of colors to work for you. 

Colors to Influence

Colors magically influence things as well. Seasonal colors help people to get in the mood for holidays. Pinks and reds on Valentine's day gets people in the mood for these festivities, and Red with Green get people in a “Christmassy” mood. 

Certain colors can invoke negative feelings. If you had to visit a house that had a certain color scheme, and you experienced a traumatic event there, you may find yourself triggered with unwanted flashbacks to the trauma.. Likewise, pleasant feelings of being protected and at home can come about when you walk in someplace that has the same color schemes of a place where you had good memories as a child.

Colors can influence how people perceive you as well. It is said that wearing red or purple communicates success and authority, while charcoal gray communicates professionalism. Wearing pastel colors will make you seem softer, more agreeable, and more approachable.All black clothing will make you be perceived as sophisticated. Patterns also influence how you are perceived. Plaids can make you seem more traditional, while rainbow patterns will make you seem more progressive. Floral patterns will appear more old-fashioned, and abstract patterns can make people think you are more modern. Choose your colors and patterns to influence how people perceive and react to you, and this will help you control the outcomes of things better.
