"The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured. The Lord is with you”
Christmas is approaching us and in the meantime we hope that we are realizing the eternity of every moment through consciousness. The white light, which is the colour of divinity and the sun is the source of all and includes all that there is and also the colors of the rainbow. All these colors are present in an harmonious proportion in the white light, including the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, and also rose, gold, etc…These colors are also an expression of the music of God, which is divine love. Each individual should open himself to the beauty and wonder of the colors and experience them.
New scientific discoveries confirm that there are about 10 million different shades of colors perceptible to man.
All these colors are necessary for our evolution and expression and the colours around us have an effect according to their quality and may help us to find the colors within.
But what is that decolours or removes the colour of our lives? It is everything that retards or is against the development of our souls. Here is the source of all sickness, physical, emotional or mental.
Since ancient times, it has been verified that the main weaknesses of man, mostly unknown to himself are: lie, fear, vanity, greed and wrong use of sex. These mistakes may be well perceived by others. These qualities are expressed in negative thoughts, negative emotions, and tensions. One of these five errors, with a certain proportion of the others usually controls the life of a man.
For a healthy woman or man it should be the higher self who controls everything in her or him. Yet one has the possibility to discover these mistakes, to observe them without being identified with them, with the understanding that these qualities are not her or his true self, who is perfect light.
One should make a resolution not to express but to transform these errors. All these errors are held by the illusion and egoism and when they are not nurtured, they will eventually die. Then the divinity within or the Christ in us can be born, grow and express itself.
The conscious visualization of white light in our aura and of the colors of the rainbow, including all its shades is a possibility that will help to regain the lost colors in our lives. According to their constitution people should choose the colour that they need most of all.
The colors have a physical, emotional, and mental healing power, for instance:
red will lead people to action and practicability, orange will give health, yellow will give joy and knowledge, green will give rest and the ability to grow, blue will give peace and harmony,
indigo will give concentration and discipline, violet may attract true spirituality, rose will help to love unconditionally, gold will give wisdom, and the white light will give the essence of all goodness. In this sense we wish you a colorful Christmas and a fruitful practice. May the Christ be born within you.

Excerpts from “Healing and regeneration through color” page 37-39 by Corinne Heline:
The occult student should be able to do much for himself through color visualization. “Bathing in color” is not mere fancy, but fact. Regular periods of daily meditation in which the affected organs are flooded with the color necessary for their re-invigoration will be found to be most beneficial, both from a physical standpoint and in the cultivation of powers of concentration and visualization.
The New Age preventive against epidemics, which will replace the present barbaric custom of vaccination, will be the scientific use of color. Each ductless gland, for example, possesses what we may call a “color power” which is the energy radiation visible to extended etheric vision. When properly focused this color power will overcome and eradicate certain diseases caused by a lack of the stimulus native to that color.
The color radiation of the pineal gland is blue-lavender; the pituitary, electric blue; the thyroid green-gold; the solar plexus, orange; the thymus, golden-pink; the adrenals, bright purplish red.
Concentration upon the specific color needed will stimulate the secretion of the gland corresponding to the color, and the flow will aid those parts of the body affected. The ductless glands being concretions of the eheric body, are particularly amenable to the power of thought and color visualization.
All color treatments, when used in conjunction with the harmonious aspects by transit of their corresponding planets, will produce quicker and more lasting effects, particularly if the individual horoscope is also taken into consideration. Lunations and eclipses should always be consulted.
Excerpts from “Message of the stars” page 64- 67 by Max Heindel:
C H A R T O F B I R T H – S T O N E S A N D C O L O R S
To forestall a question we may say that ancient astrologers who have studied this aspect of the science have tabulated several hundred minerals of which the planetary affinities had been noted, but these works have been mutilated in the course of time, and are now not available. Paracelsus and also Agrippa, made considerable study of this subject, and with very important results; but its extensive consideration is outside the scope of this work, so the authors will confine their remarks to the essentials, indicating the way which others may pursue if they feel so inclined.
To illustrate how the mineral elements may be used to advantage let us take the following example: Suppose that in a certain horoscope we find Sagittarius rising with its lord Jupiter on the Ascendant. Jupiter is then the ruling planet and so, according to our chart turquoise is the person's birthstone, tin, the metal with which he has affinity, and blue, his colour. That means that it will help him express himself if he wears turquoise, an amulet of tin, and dresses in blue whenever consistent with custom.
That is true of a certain extent, but it is only a small part of the truth, and it is by no means the best use that may be made of this knowledge.
To indicate the better way, let us suppose that this person's figure shows severe afflictions by Mars and Saturn. Mars afflicts three planets; his metal is iron, Venus is the opposite of Mars; her metal is copper, and consequently copper is an antidote for the martial vibrations. Saturn afflicts one planet; his metal is lead. Jupiter is his opposite and therefore the Jupiter metal, tin, is an antidote for the Saturnian vibrations. With this in mind an amulet may be compounded of tin and copper not exactly in the ratio of three to one, but with a mind on the bulk of the various planets, their destiny and the strength of the aspects it is desired to overcome, a matter which involves further study. The work itself should be done under auspicious planetary conditions. A Mars amulet, designed to give energy to one with a weak figure would be most successful if made in a Mars-hour on a Tuesday when both the Sun and Moon are in martial signs as happened in April and November. The same with amulets made for other planets. (See the Tables of Planetary Hours, in our Simplified Scientific Astrology.)
A gem or an amulet made on these principles is a focus of the stellar rays of the planets it represents and infuses vibrations of their nature into our auras all the while we are wearing it, just as surely as the wireless receiver attuned to a certain pitch catches the waves within its range; and we may blend the colors in the same manner to obtain help from them. As a matter of fact, it is the complementary color which is seen in the desire world that produces the effect of the physical colors.
If it is desired to restrain one whose Mars is too prominent, the gems, colors and metals of Saturn will help, and such a person should have as little to do with iron (tools, machinery, etc..) as possible, but if we want to help someone who is moody and taciturn, we may use the gems, colors and metals of Mars to advantage. In the final analysis the matter resolves itself into a question of judgment and common sense. With these, the knowledge concerning the essentials here given may be used by anyone to advantage.
The nativity of Iesus the Christ:
And she brought forth her firstborn child in a cave, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, which was in the cave; because there was no room for them in the inn. And behold it was filled with many lights, bright as the Sun in his glory…and the angel said unto them, fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people, for unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ, the Holy one of God. And this shall be a sign to you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace toward men of goodwill.
The gospel of the holy twelve. Translated from the original aramaic by Ouseley
If our love is noble, our medicine will bear fruit; however, if our love is weak, it will be fruitless.
A drop of divine love is of more value than all the gold of this world.
When we do with love and passion what we have pondered about and learned, we are constructing a palace in silence, and in the grounds around many trees and fruits will grow, which will be a delight for all.
Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
He whose walk is blameless
And who does what is righteous,
Who speaks the truth from his heart
And has no slander on his tongue,
Who does his neighbour no wrong
And cast no slur on his fellow man,
Who despises a vile man
But honours those who fear the Lord,
Who keeps his oath
Even when it hurts,
Who lends his money without usury
And does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.
