Material World Symbolism
When we accept that the material world is an illusion intended to point us to the spiritual parallels within; and if we understand the significance of the seven colors of light and life; it becomes an evolutionary adventure to discover the many ways this knowledge is embedded, at all levels, within our earthly experience. Such revelations may validate our pre-existing realizations regarding this knowledge. Consider the rainbow itself, or the fact that all natural light, when unzipped by a prism, becomes these seven primary colors. When observed through a prism, our sense organs emanate five of these seven colors, and the remaining two are involved in temperature regulation. The tip of the nose will glow green, the eyes red, the skin violet, the tongue orange, and the ear cavities blue. The yellow and indigo rays regulate body temperature (yellow is warming, and indigo cooling). Some natural gems, such as ruby, diamond, blue and yellow sapphire, emerald, and pearl; among others; possess the vibrational frequency of singular cosmic rays. All other earthly substances emit two or more rays. Hence the value of these gems in vibrational healing (they can be used medicinally to strengthen the vibrational frequency of individual cosmic rays).
Through their revelations of the “Pancha Mahabhutas,” the five primary elements known as earth, water, fire, air, and ether; the vedas further link cosmic color rays to creation. Earth is said to be formed from the concentrated green ray, water orange and indigo, fire red and yellow, air violet, and ether blue. According to Ayurveda, the five primeval “vayus” are the elements comprising the pranic sheath, a fundamental factor in our overall health. They include prana, apana, samana, udana and vyana; which are associated with the sevenfold vibrations of light and life. Prana vayu is connected with the earth element and green ray, apana vayu water and the orange and indigo rays, samana vayu fire and the red and yellow rays, udana vayu air and the violet ray, and vyana vayu ether and the blue ray. The “tridosha,” those fundamental components of Ayurvedic medicine, are also formed from these seven cosmic color rays. Vata contains both air and ether elements, deriving from the violet and blue rays. Pitta comes from the fire element, formed from red and yellow rays. (Kappa is comprised of the earth and water elements, created from orange, indigo, and green rays. Such observations support the vedic postulates pursuant to the origins of creation and the science of light and life.
