the sixth fundamental color, also called Blue-violet, is a
color denoting intuition and spiritual perception.
As symbol of the Mystic Borderland, it has to do with
spiritual attainment and self-mastery, wisdom and
Indigo is stimulating and regenerating to mind and
soul, and is one of the rays of the future
race-consciousness, extending the inner vision and opening
up new fields of comprehension and knowledge.
This is the vibration on a parallel to a power in us
which knows when and how to put on the brakes.
Thus the mental effects of its usual activity are
concentration, poise and deliberation, suggested by the
expression “indigo mood.”
Its deficiency might indicate eccentricity or
rashness of behavior, aimless dreaming, or weakening of the
body structure. Too
much indigo tends to increase fearfulness and caution, or
poisons caused by retention of waste in body.
This color in its relation to the lower end of the
spine has to do with functions which excrete waste from the
It has a cooling and purifying effect, and is used as
an astringent or antiseptic.
It is a slightly stimulating color, containing a
little red. Can
halt tissue degeneration, and clear skin eruptions; or be
used for the clean healing of skin eruptions or wounds.
It is a safe neutral anesthetic, its anesthetic
effect brought about by causing a hypnotic condition in
which the patient is insensitive to pain while fully
It has effect on the organs of sight, hearing and
smelling, on the nervous, mental, and psychic faculties and
forces of man. It
corresponds to the areas of the knees and skin, bony
structure of the skeleton, the kidneys, the sweat glands,
lumbar region of the spine, the vaso-motor system, the
excretory system, and the sacral plexus.
It has been used in successful treatment of mental
disorders, obsessions, nervous disorders, insomnia, and
matters having to do with the eye, ear and nose.
Also as an antidote to frustrations, to fear-complex
or general negative conditions, by taking action on
personality and character.
By reflex action of its complementary
color, yellow-orange, it can also be used to aid the stomach
or breast, or to act as an aid to digestion.
Such blue, or indigo or violet substances as aconite,
ergot, indigo, the galls, sulfate of copper (blue vitriol),
together with a moderate form of the acids which have the
blue principle of oxygen in them, including sulphuric,
phosphoric, nitric, are spoken of as being refrigerant
astringent, antiseptic, arresting hemorrhage, narcotic,
allying spasms, etc.
Chloroform (CHCl3) has the blue green,
blue, indigo and violet strong in its spectrum, and is
called a direct sedative to the nervous system.
– Part One, page 2
Tannic acid, though bluish yellow externally, has the
oxygen very strong, and its blue and indigo principle seems
to be potentized by the hydrogen in a way to make the
substance, as a whole, highly astringent.
Aconite, whose flowers are a dark violet blue, is
called a powerful nerve sedative and anodyne.
Opium, which has the red and yellow elements in
predominance, and yet being called a narcotic, and sometimes
an astringent, may be thought to convert the principle, but
it should be remembered that opium is a narcotic by
over-exciting and congesting the brain, and is an astringent
in part by drawing the vitalizing ethers from the bowels to
the head, which thus leaves the bowels weak.
Indigo has some relation to the transmission of life.
Its planet is Saturn, and its metal lead.

Minerals and chemicals radiating indigo are chromium,
iron, copper, strontium, titanium, potassium, bromide, cupro
diammonium sulfate, chloral hydrate and oxygen.
Glass for indigo treatments should have
cupro-diammonium sulfate, which is used in mazarine glass.
Indigo foods partake of both blue and violet
Pulmonary diseases are caused by fear, and the
eradication of fear is therefore essential for a permanent
cure. The power
consciousness is directly keyed to the blue rate of
vibration and this can be fixed by drawing the blue light of
poise and serenity and then color breathing in the blue ray.
A long-standing case needs then to be
disinfected with the deeper blue of indigo light
treatment, that the atomic impurities discarded during the
bombardment of atoms may be cast out. The entire atomic
structure of the body is caused to split up and multiply by
the bombardment of cosmic forces.
This process is stimulated by color and within it is
the remedy for complete healing.
Much of the rebirth of cells goes on within the
blue-indigo light for the atoms of the body do not die but
are split up into new substances and new activity.
Some diseases generally affected by indigo are eye,
ear and nose ailments, facial paralysis, lung troubles,
pneumonia, bronchitis, bronchial croup, whooping cough,
asthma, phthisis, nervous afflictions, mental ills such as
delirium tremens, obsession and insanity.
Infantile convulsions are relieved by using
the indigo light on the face and head.
Anesthesia can be produced in the safest form
known to science through use of the indigo light.
The indigo raises the consciousness of the patient to
such a high rate of vibration that he becomes unaware of
happenings to the physical body, having withdrawn his
consciousness to higher levels.
This is not at all the same as hypnosis.
Bleeding from the nose can be stopped by
snuffing and bathing the nose in indigo water, then focusing
indigo light on the nostrils.
One having frequent nose bleeds will be benefited by
a dose of indigo solarized water at bed-time for a week.
Indigo is also helpful to relieve internal bleeding.
Dyspepsia will be checked by indigo light and indigo
Dry cough can be stopped by drinking indigo water.
Pneumonia responds best in indigo light unless there
is hemorrhage, when blue should be used.
Indigo gives relief from swellings and extreme and
acute pain. It gives an effect of a sedative.
Use indigo for over-active thyroid and for
stimulation of the parathyroid for better and freer

Astringent – An agent that causes Contraction and
arrests Discharges. Indigo,
acting as an astringent, tightens and gives tone to muscles,
nerves and skin.
Hemostatatic – An agent that checks the Flow of
Inspissator – An agent that dries or thickens.
Pain Reliever – An agent that allays Suffering.
Parathyroid Stimulant – An agent that increases the
functional activity of the 4 Parathyroid Glands, embedded in
the Right and Left Thyroid Glands.
Phagocyte Builder – An agent that builds cells
which destroy harmful Micro-Organisms.
Respiratory Depressant – An agent that decreases

Thyroid Depressant – An agent that decreases the
functional activity of the thyroid glands.
Indigo used with other colors:
Inflammation occurring in the parts of the
body for which indigo color treatment is indicated should
first have the heat reduced by using the blue, then apply
the indigo to bring about better functioning.
Eyes that are inflamed from digestive
troubles, will be helped by using blue glasses and then
having indigo light turned on the face.
Granular eyelids and chronic ulcerated cornea,
sties and bloodshot eyes require the same treatment, blue
light and indigo light with indigo radiated water which
generally effect a cure in a few weeks.
Earache can have the inflammation reduced by
blue light and if there is a pimple or discharge from the
ear a gentle syringe with blue solarized water, followed by
indigo light and solarized water.
Abnormal sounds in the ears, if they come from too
much heat in the brain, will be stopped by indigo light on
the head with the feet kept warm and the bowels open.
Creeping palsy due to a mental helplessness is
relieved by having the patient concentrate on the word
“serenity”, then putting him under the blue light moving
it down the right side and up the left.
(The direction is important.)
Deep green light is next focused on the soles of the
feet and slowly moved up the spine.
Indigo light is now radiated on the throat center for
20 minutes and then moved down the right side and up the
left, stopping for 10 minutes to focus the light on the
soles of the feet.
Before going to bed a warm bath should be given while
the indigo light is over the tub and then a rub down with
indigo cloths. If
a tub bath is not feasible the bath can be given on a
– Part Two, page 3
rubber sheet on the bed using a
warmed blanket to prevent chilling.
Salt bags solarized with indigo, as previously
described, can be used in place of a wash cloth.
The indigo should be kept shining over the bed.
If the patient does not respond immediately to the
treatment the indigo light can be left shining during the
night, but this is only an extreme measure.
Further indigo treatments with other colors:
One of the eye afflictions successfully treated with
the indigo ray is cataract.
This can come from an adamant attitude toward persons
or conditions. One
case of this was treated psychologically, first asking the
patient to do the universal breathing exercise and giving
her a salmon pink rose to meditate upon, suggesting that she
use this color in her room furnishings.
Before the treatment was begun the room was flooded
with soft pink light to help dissolve the harshness of the
Indigo breathing was then practiced while both eyes
were bathed with indigo radiated water and wet compresses of
it put on the eyelids and forehead.
After this the indigo light was radiated on the eyes
and forehead and the patient was asked to inhale more
deeply. The light treatment was continued for 30 minutes and
the forehead etherically massaged with the finger tips, the
healer visualizing the indigo light flowing through them.
The patient was given a transparent indigo eye shade
and asked to sit in the sunshine whenever possible with the
indigo light directly on the eyes.
A case of encroaching blindness due to shock in which
there was no organic eye trouble was remedied by
changing the colors of the patient’s room furnishings from
orange and yellow to 3 shades of green, and violet light
treatments were given twice a day.
Partial recovery occurred in 7 weeks and in 7 months
the sight was nearly normal.
Deafness, which can come from a mental
attitude of unwillingness to hear certain things, as well as
from physical causes can be relieved if from the former
cause by use of the peachy pink light and affirmation and
bathing the face and ears with indigo radiated water every
the indigo light is to be used on the ear.
The sense of smell can be restored by use of
the peachy pink breathing affirmation combined with
imagining the aroma of delightful flowers.
Then a little indigo radiated water is to be sniffed
up the nose several times a day and a little gargled in the
back of the nose. A
compress of indigo silk wet with indigo water is to be
placed over the nose and indigo light radiated through it,
while the patient inhales deeply and uses the indigo color
The Healing Power of Blue and Violet:
Blue and violet are cold, electrical and contracting
potencies, very fine and penetrating, as well as soothing in
inflammatory and nervous conditions, and in stopping
– Part Two, page 4
If the red arterial blood becomes over-active and
inflammatory, blue is the balancing and harmonizing
the yellow or red and orange principle of the nerves becomes
unduly excited, the violet and also the blue and indigo
would be the soothing principles.
This applies to the nerves of the cranium,
stomach, bowels and kidneys when conditions of delirium,
emesis, diarrhea and diuresis occur through overheating.
Drugs used for this purpose have the blue
coloring and include aconite, belladonna, foxglove, ergot,
cranesbill, logwood, blackberry, nitric acid and many
Green tea, which is the blue color combined
with yellow, is astringent and gently exciting, the double
quality coming from the two colors.
The blue, indigo and violet being cooling and
contracting are nervine, astringent, refrigerant,
antiseptic, febrifuge, anti-inflammatory, narcotic and
are not to be used in cold, bluish or chronic conditions,
unless considerable excitability is present.
When Blue and Violet are Injurious:
In cases of paralysis (according to Babbit),
costiveness, chronic rheumatism, gout, consumption (acute
forms excepted). All
cold, pale and dormant conditions of the system, all the
electrical colors, blue, indigo, violet, and even blue-green
are too cooling and constricting.
The brain, however, even under these conditions, may
be put under the blue glass, especially the upper portion of
Blue is as pronounced in reducing nervous
excitement as red is in producing it, and may be
administered in small doses as a general sedative, creating
a disposition to sleep.
But as soon as sleep begins the bath should cease.
In ordinary cases the blue bath should be about 2
hours through a window containing alternate blue and plain
glass. This may
be longer than most persons can endure comfortably unless
the head is protected.
Healing by Means of Substances Charged with Blue and
The great power of light is shown by the
transformation it is ever making in mineral, vegetable and
animal forms and colors.
Reichenbach by many experiments proved the great
power of sunlight in his work with sensitives, persons who
have peculiar sensitivities.
A copper wire held by such a sensitive in a dark room
and the other end attached to a metal plate in a ray of
sunlight registered immediately on the sensitive as an icy
cold principle, so cold as to stiffen the hand.
From this it was deduced the finer elements of
sunlight are cold.
Water standing in the sunlight 5 minutes
produced a pepper-like burning when the sensitive drank it;
when standing 20 minutes in the sunshine it was powerfully
Reichenbach exposed himself to the sun for 10 minutes, the
sensitive noted a great increase of force in his hand.
– Part Two, page 5
Experiments were made with milk of sugar, placing
some of it in the red and yellow rays of the solar spectrum
and some in the blue and violet rays.
After some time of such exposure, the taste of the
former to a sensitive was tepid and nauseous, but that of
the latter cool and refreshing, confirming the properties of
these colors as previously shown.
An 18 month old child who had been in convulsions
for 4 hours was given up as dying when a half grain of the
milksugar that had been exposed to the violet and blue rays
was administered. In
some 15 minutes the convulsions stopped and the child
The blue and violet principles are not only valuable
in checking nervous and inflammable conditions but can also
be used in cases of diarrhea.
Blue glass can be placed over the bowels or blue
charged water can be taken by the tablespoonful.
A case which had lasted 5 weeks was stopped in two
days by taking a tablespoonful of water two or three times a
day which had been charged with sunlight in a blue bottle.
After the first day or two she took an occasional sip
of the water and was entirely healed.
