As part of my first degree studies, I’m supposed to choose a form of magic and study how it works in depth. I’m then supposed to two write spells, one simple and the other complex, based on that system of magic.
I’ve chosen color magic.
I’ve always been intrigued by the ideas of therapy treatments based on non-medicated, unorthodox methods. For example, in college I was introduced to the idea of using music in therapy. Someone individuals reach very well to treatments including certain chords, notes, or even lyrics. I believe music is a useful tool, as I know I personally heal faster if I listen to some of my favorite songs.
Along the same lines, I thought that color therapy would be interesting. I imagined that it would be like the astrologically-chosen colors listed on birth charts, and such. Simply, you put on color A for desire A, color B for effect B, and so on. But as I’m just sticking my toes into the colored waters, I find myself immersed in scientific studies of the effects of reflected light (colors) on the atomic and subatomic levels, the changes to cell chemistry resulting in a changed organism. I’m extremely fascinated with the scientific connections, as they meld with (instead of disagreeing with) the magical aspects.
I believe I’ve made a good choice. While I may not *see* in colors, I dream in them. I use them, feel them, and am surrounded by them. Now I’ll learn how to use that to my advantage.
