The Intermediate Colors
Intermediate colors may express in the following
Red-orange: Slightly less stimulating than
red, it is used to intensify intuitive power, and to awaken
interior hearing. It
affects the neck and throat, and all corresponding areas, as
well as the genito-urinary organs by reflex action of
Orange-yellow: A very mild stimulant, its
cheering influence assists in overcoming the blues, worry,
or mental depression. It
has to do with the chest and mammary glands, the stomach,
the diaphragm, lower lobes of lungs, and upper lobes of
liver. It helps
promote digestive functions and assimilation.
Yellow-green: A slightly depressant color, it
quiets the nerves, corrects the tendency to over-
confidence. It quickly relieves headache caused by
auto-intoxication or unequal blood-pressure. It is related
to the small intestine and upper part of the large
intestine; to the pancreas and spleen; to lower lobes of the
Blue-green: A sedative and depressant, its
action is expressed through the nerves and muscles of the
voluntary system. By arousing the activity of its opposite
color it can be used to treat the throat area.
In general, it relates to the genito-urinary organs,
the urethra, the prostate gland, and the descending colon
and the rectum.
Very mild antiseptic, almost as strong a stimulant as
stimulant action makes it of value in overcoming desire for
drink or drugs. Its
antiseptic action clears the blood.
It relates to the feet and toes.
Violet-red denotes the returning in toward
manifestation, but on a higher note.
The use of turquoise for skin building gives
immediate relief and correction from sun burn, hot liquid
burns and severe skin injuries.
Some of the most severe destruction of the skin has
responded and healed rapidly without even leaving a scar.
For conditions where the flesh and tissues are
destroyed along with the skin, alternate with the green and
infections of all kinds of fever respond to turquoise.
Turquoise gives fast relief from fatigue poisons.
Work, play and exercise produce these poisons as the
cells and tissues are broken down making one feel tired.
Use the turquoise at any time for correction.
Use to give relief from insomnia.
Turquoise is a depressant for an overactive and over
stimulated brain. Turquoise
depresses an over active thymus gland.
Turquoise relieves various kinds of irritation and
itching. It is
very cool and relaxing.
This applies especially for headaches and many kinds
of extreme pressure or swelling conditions.
Acute Alternative – An agent that produces a
favorable change in the process of nutrition and repair, in
Cerebral Depressant – An agent that decreases the
functional activity of the brain.

Skin Builder – An agent that builds the skin.
Tonic – An agent that tones the system.
Magenta – Red & Violet
Colors are harmless and normalizing in their effect
on the body. However,
if the process of loosening and eliminating of toxins and
congestions from the body occurs too rapidly, one might feel
upset. Do not
stop tonation unless the condition becomes unbearable.
If the tonation causes extreme pain or dizziness
which does not go away soon, then use turquoise color for
The colors must be irradiated on the bare skin in a
dark room. The
room should be comfortably warm during the tonation.
The tonation may be taken with the head to the North
and the feet to the South; it is best to be in a reclining
relaxation is important and it is desirable to remain so,
for a short time after the tonation period.
Insofar as practical during this treatment, avoid
those things which cause toxic effects, such as meat,
coffee, tobacco and alcoholic beverages.
They slow down the natural processes of the body to
build new and healthy tissues and cells and retard the
natural processes of the eliminative organs to remove mucous
poisons and waste from the body, thus interfering with
nature’s efforts to heal.
All forms of refined and devitalized foods should
also be eliminated as they are dead and therefore cannot
build live and healthy tissues.
Drink plenty of water and fruit juices.
They flush out the body and dissolve waste.
Lemon is especially helpful, one-half lemon to a
glass of lukewarm water.
Auric Builder – An agent that builds the aura or
the radio-emanation of the chemical body.
Cardiac Energizer – An agent that increases the
functional activity of the heart.
Diuretic – An agent that increases or promotes the
secretion of front elimination.
Emotional Equilibrator – An agent that stabilizes
Suprarenal Stimulant – An agent that increases the
functional activity of the adrenal glands on the kidneys.
Magenta balances the emotions giving relief to all
phases of these unbalances.
It is indicated in nervous conditions accompanied by
melancholia, or grief, and in sexual neuroses.

Magenta with its recuperative
green complementary is of great benefit. As with the green,
use magenta for all disorders regardless of their names.
It makes it possible for other colors to be more
balances the sex desires of both sexes.
Magenta will produce similar stimulative and
depressive effects to those of both scarlet and purple but
it works a little more slowly.
If one does not know whether it is high or low blood
pressure, magenta raises or lowers it automatically as is
stimulates or depresses the arteries and veins.
It gives all kinds of changes for heart conditions
regardless of the names.
Nothing can give relief to the heart with such
rapidity and accuracy as does magenta.
Use magenta primarily on the areas around the heart
The white light, without filters combines all rays.
Thus we have made full circle.
White light appears in all minerals and chemicals
though most strongly present in platinum, silver and quartz.
Lenses to use in healing with the white light are
best made of quartz.
White light is of course in the sunlight, which has
been used in healing down the ages.
It is recognized as an antiseptic and a caustic.
The sun’s rays will cauterize a vein or an artery
and almost instantly stop the bleeding.
No after-dressing is needed except in the case of
cancer. As the
sun’s rays are not poisonous there are no bad after
affects as with the use of drugs.
There are no preparations necessary but the operator
can cauterize as deeply as may be needed.
No scar is left after the healing is completed.
Augustus Barnes removed cancers in their earlier
stages, tumors, moles and birth marks no matter what the
size or color. He
used the lens and the simple rays of the sun without any
bleeding or a permanent scar.
It is related by Paul Brunton how the Hindu Rishi
Vishudhananda of Benares could pick up a bird that has just
fallen lifeless to the ground and holding it in the warmth
of his hands focus the sun’s rays upon its eyes through an
ordinary lens, whereupon the bird flies up fluttering about
for a half hour, then again dies, showing the power of the
sun’s rays on the life forces.
The student of color healing may experience for
himself the methods which he is led to use, gradually
extending his knowledge until he can use all of them.

In addition to the usual hues, there is a color
vibration related to both the red and violet ends of the
spectrum which is called ruby or magenta.
This color carries the vital radiations of life and
metabolism in what may be called etheric form.
It does not appear to ordinary

vision, as the red and blue of
the spectrum when superimposed do not produce its saturated
brilliant color. This
ruby or magenta present in the two ends of the spectrum can
be transmitted by cobalt blue or manganese violet glass.
Research over many years has brought Dr. Sander to
the conclusion that white light, instead of consisting of 3
primary colors, actually has 4 color elements, which are
magenta, green, yellow and blue.
These form 2 pairs of complementary colors, magenta
and green, and yellow and blue.
This 4-color system proves of great value in the
color treatment of disease, each of the 4 elements having a
separate function. The
mixing of pigments does not produce the same colors as the
mixing of light rays in the spectrum, for complementary
pigments mixed together produce black, not the spectrum
color resulting from the mixture of colored light.
This is important to remember in chromotherapy.
In using color in healing it is necessary to have a
color system which will prevent mistakes in harmonizing the
colors being used therapeutically. The
spectrum colors merge from one to the other without any
definite line between them.
The ordinary chromatic system divides them into 7
colors which are called red, orange, yellow, green, blue,
indigo and violet. These
actual colors are very indefinite in most people’s minds
for many have never looked at the spectrum either through a
prism or a spectroscope and have never compared them with
the reds and blues seen in pigments and dyes.
The dull navy-blue color generally called indigo, for
instance, is very different from the beautiful deep spectrum
healing work it is better to call the blue which is next to
green by its more scientifically correct name, cyan blue.
And the blue which approaches the violet band in the
spectrum is to be called ultra-marine blue instead of
indigo, as the French ultra-marine in good pigment is the
nearest approach to this healing spectrum color.
The therapeutic color system requires more than the
seven spectrum colors, and the magenta or ruby color is
added to it. This
color appears if the rainbow band is arranged in a circle so
that the red and violet overlap.
This actually seems to be a deep rose tint because
the pure magenta hue is diluted by the white resulting from
the overlapping of the blue in the violet end and the yellow
in the red end.
Magenta or ruby therefore cannot be seen in the
spectrum in its full strength.
In analine dyes, rhodanime B or acid violet produce
it. A diluted
beetroot juice also produces it, as does a weak pink
solution of potassium permanganate.
The pigeon-blood ruby also approximates it, and for
this reason the hue will be called ruby in therapeutic work.
The therapeutic color chart is arranged in a circle
with the 8 colors: red, orange, yellow, green, cyan blue,
ultra-marine blue, violet and ruby.
These are the pure colors in their full strength and
is to be realized pure color is seldom seen in nature or in
art, decoration, or fabrics.
