MYSTERY CALLED " MAGENTA "
The colour phenomena
was given its name by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in
the late 1700's. To this patron of the arts, theatrical
director and widely acclaimed author of master works such as
Faust, colour was an enigma well beyond producing
seven colours with a sunbeam and a piece of clear glass.
Spanning more than thirty years, his classic colour
experiments culminated in the mysterious marvel called
Theory of Colours, first published in German in
In Theory of
Colours, Goethe substantiated via hundreds of
duplicable experiments that colour was an observable
phenomena that fell outside the limited parameters of of Sir
Isaac Newton's " Wave Length Theory " of colour - which
found its roots in passing white light through a glass prism
to produce the familiar rainbow effect.
One such Goethe
experiential phenomena, was the "recurring and unexplainable
appearance" of an eighth colour - one which would
"mysteriously appear" just beyond Violet - or just
before Red, seemingly creating a Colour or Light
Loop (Circular) as opposed to a Rainbow (Linear).
Goethe named this elusive colour
2 parts Red and 1 part Blue, this tertiary colour lies
"hidden" between Red and Violet. Therefore
is both the end and the beginning of the Light Spectrum -
representing the Alpha and the Omega - the
fullest expression of Divine Love. As such,

Mystery Schools, as the colour of the 8th chakra - " The
Soul Star " - residing just outside the physical body,
and above the head. In this capacity,
contains our individual "Soul Blueprint", otherwise
known as our "Akashic Record".
Connection to this
chakra reveals our reason for incarnating - our Divine
Mission - and then further supports our energies to
actualize it. If you view the
ray as preceding the colour Red, it could be said that the
soul descends to body. Conversely, if
is seen as following the colour Violet, then the body has
ascended to spirit.

Or... which comes last - Violet or
If you see the colour
as being in between Violet and Red, you will
see the metaphor for Absolution of Duality. It is
only possible to experience the living of Heaven (Violet) on
Earth (Red), when polarities no longer exist. It is for this
reason that the Akashic Record is held in the
chakra - beyond duality and the ensuing FALSE judgments
this state creates.

colour complement, and making a conscious effort to keep the
Olive Green chakra clear.
speaking, an important message is conveyed by Olive Green
when Noah is presented with an Olive Branch in
the Old Testament, as well as an Olive Grove being the
common meeting place of The Christ and his Disciples
in the New Testament.
In the case of
Noah, Olive Green speaks symbolically to the Hope
that "the floods" have transmuted/purified a once corrupt
World. In the case of The Christ, Olive Green
represents a state of hope that the Disciples can learn how
to serve on Earth while residing in Heaven. The Christ said:
"Be of the World - not in it". This is the promise of
simultaneous transmutation and trans-substantiation.

the personification of care to often times monotonous, yet
precise detail. Further, in this simplicity is found beauty
and harmony. An individual that is highly actualized in the
Ray may not own much in terms of material goods, but what
they do own will be simply elegant.
When one is
actualized in the
Ray, they know that they are enough, and are capable of
self-validation. They are safe and secure in who they are,
and they KNOW they are cared for on a much higher level than
the physical existence that is apparent. Therefore, they are
not swayed by the opinions (judgments) of others. It is this
ability to completely detach from all judgment and good
versus bad outcomes, that makes them very harmonious
individuals both in their personal relationships and in
their work environments.
