The Greeks believed there are four main elements in nature, earth, air, fire, and water. These elements are also associated with the compass directions. I like to take it one step further and add to the list that angels are associated with both elements and the compass directions. That’s a lot of information to talk about PLUS; it has to do with color.
There can be a slight variation in this information. Depending on who you ask, there can be more elements, different angels, and of course, different colors. I will talk about how I understand this concept and what I have been studying since 2014.
Compass direction: North
Angel: Archangel Uriel
Color: Brown. As you enjoy grounding outside on a beautiful day, no matter where you are or what the temperature it is, connect to Mother Earth. Don’t have a garden? Even if you have a small plant or two and visualize a full-size garden! Tap into those energies with Rooftop Garden CSP 765 and feel the grounding and stability from this earthy color.
Compass direction: East
Angel: Archangel Raphael
Color: yellow. Oh, the mind is such a powerful tool! Your thoughts can take you anywhere in the world and it’s only your imagination that will limit you. As you think of days of the past, Handmade Paper, CSP 875 is a wonderful blend of yellow and green. Take a deep breath in … and exhale! Thoughts in, thoughts out, relax.
Compass direction: South
Angel: Archangel Michael
Color: Red. The firey color of Egyptian Clay CSP 1140 is hot! Can you see red and orange combined to make up this hot hue? Like the flame of a candle, feel the passion, desire, and energy of this element.
Compass direction: West
Angel: Archangel Gabriel
Color: Blue. On the days your emotions get the best of you, soak up DayDream CSP 615 and wash those blues away.
How about this for taking color to the next step? Keep in mind you can use most shades of each of these colors to represent the elements, it doesn’t have to be the colors I highlighted here. The elements are very powerful. Connect with them as you connect with your colors.
