THE BROWN RAY IN CRYSTALS - THE EARTHTONES
When the brown ray manifests in crystal form it combines the properties of the crystal with the energy of this earthy colour.
Brown can be the best friend you’ll ever have, it is the colour of the great comforter. It will make you feel safe and secure, in a safe haven. Very calming and soothing, it is the remover of hassle and tensions. Brown is the great supporter; it is for the person who seeks asylum from life’s hurley burley. It can help bring an individual ‘back down to earth’. It is effective for that spacey feeling. It supports you to let go of the old so that you can germinate and encounter the new. A good colour to use whenever you have to stand still to take stock before starting out again. Brown can help awaken common sense and discrimination. Brown has the properties of manure - it is not always pretty, but it brings enrichment and new growth through its nutrients. Brown is the colour of recycling.
