THE WHITE RAY IN CRYSTALS
When the clear ray manifests in crystal form it combines the properties of the crystal with the energy of this pure colour.
The Clear or the pure White light, exits above and beyond the rainbow. It is the father and mother of light, from which all colour is conceived. The Clear is combined light from which the rainbow is born prismatically, each colour stacked upon the other in perfect balance and harmony. Clear implies clarity and purity like the Clear Quartz crystal which is the solidification of pure light. When we shine a clear light on a problem, we have the opportunity for clarity and deep understanding. Clear offers clarification and illumination to whatever is placed under its beam. Clear is about intensity. The Clear energy amplifies all that it touches, just as Clear Quartz has the property of magnifying energy. Clear also has the potential to reflect all that is placed in front of it, giving us the opportunity to recognize ourselves. The power of the Clear light is symbolized by the full moon. The moon has no light of its own, but reflects the light of the sun. It shines at night and when it is full, it sheds the greatest light on the subconscious, illuminating those thoughts and emotions which at other times remain concealed. Clear is associated with water which is symbolic of emotions. It is compared to frozen emotion. Clear demonstrates harmony and balance and the potential for a kaleidoscope of creativity and experience. Clear implies a wide potential. All the colours are reflected here.
In Clear there is a paradox. Will the light enter and penetrate, bringing forth all that is hidden in the darkness. Or will the light be reflected back to its source, so that nothing is revealed. Clear contains the duality which comes from the source of all light. It is the sun and the moon, and the brightness of the stars. Clear may be seen as the light at the end of the tunnel, the star, offering us hope eternal, and understanding, inspiring and uplifting us, that we may find the courage to open our eyes and expand our hearts. Clear is resolution, as all the myriad colours, with their challenges and their gifts, reunite.
THE WHITE RAY IN CRYSTALS
When the white ray manifests in crystal form it combines the properties of the crystal with the energy of this pure white colour.
White is the combination of an equal amount of all the colours of the spectrum, the same as the clear brilliance. But with white, there is a density: if you hold up a white sheet to the light you cannot see through it. White’s basic personality is efficient, even if a little cold. White has a tranquility that conjures up hope. White always strives towards a purity of spirit, regarding all mankind as equal. White has an all-forgiving nature, even though it strives to unearth and expose all that is untrue, shedding light in dark corners. As a colour, white encourages growth and new ideas. It is the great opener that allows expansion and creativity. It removes one’s blinkers, so that the truth can be seen bringing about unity and harmony for all. The white rose is the symbol of purified love. It is a reminder that it is love which opens the door to the process of refinement.
WHITE AND BLACK
White and Black symbolize creative activity. White symbolizes the presence of colour, while black symbolizes its absence. There is a wonderful mystery in white and black which touches upon the deepest secrets of the universe. Ancient alchemists communicated many teachings about the contrasting forces of white and black, and the results that could be obtained by their fusion. Perfect balance of these two colours (or symbols) is known as polarity. Truth, too is a polarity. When we reach this state of balance, a new earth will be created. When white and black merge, human evolution will reach its goal -- divinity.
