St. Theresa's Prayer; "Colour Meditations"

I love when beautiful prayers are forwarded to me on the internet by a caring friend. The following prayer is one such prayer that perhaps you may like, too.

St. Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.

May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.

May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones and allow yourself the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.

If I had to name a favorite type of shop that I like to frequent it would have to be any used bookstore (especially when the books are reasonably priced). Not long ago a little book came home with me for a mere $3 entitled, "Colour Meditations ~ With Guide to Colour-Healing ~ A Course of Instructions and Exercises in Developing Colour Consciousness," by S. G. J. Ouseley, L.N. Fowler & Co. LTD., London, original copyright 1949, my edition 1971. Does anyone have this book? If so, are you as enchanted by it as I am? As a fiber artist, the whole "colour" emphasis of this book excited me.

There are 31 colour meditations, many quite quaint and flowery, but all very nice. As an example: "Mediation 5: Picture mentally the forms of great rocks jutting out into the sapphire-like sea, their bases washed by creamy foam and snowy spray. Far below lies a dark tunnel with deep Green (note how colours and other words are capitalized) water dashing through the opening. In its midst a narrow arch shows a brilliant glimpse of Light and distant sea. Over the piled rocks cluster Orange lichens and above the high water mark purple thrift grows in every cranny."
Then, what follows the meditation is a "realisation": "Our path in life is often strewn with difficulties, trials and burdens that seem gigantic and rock-like. We often seem in a dark tunnel, weighed down with grief and shut off from all Beauty, Joy, Freedom. Even Nature seems to lose her wonted glory. When we give way to fears, doubts, thoughts of despair and depression we are losing ourselves deeper in the tunnel. By having faith and a positive attitude of mind, the most evil circumstances will be circumvented. In their midst we behold the Archway of Light through which pours the splendour of the Seven Rays. We receive Love, Strength, Power, Joy and Peace from the Eternal Source. When we become Colour-conscious, the Light is always shining in the darkness. Like the thrift we dwell above the troubled seas of life."

I can see myself taping the meditation itself and when I'm done meditating, looking over the "realisation" part to add to my own insights.

Had to look up what "thrift" was. The The Free Dictionary said thrift was: Any of several densely tufted plants of the genus Armeria, especially A. maritima, having white to pink flower heads with a funnel-shaped scarious calyx. Good to know!
The Seven Rays, as mentioned above, are explained in the colour-healing section. For instance, the author wrote that "Ray 7 is the Violet Cosmic Ray. Violet is the highest vibration of Light, with strong electro-chemical properties, and the rays are stimulating to the nervous system." Mr. Ouseley goes on to say, "It is not a colour for the masses but appeals more to the sensitive and soul-conscious type of person."

There are chapters on the power of colour, the science of of cosmic colour, colour attributes, colour chakras, methods of colour treatment, mental and absent healing, and more.

I Googled S. G. J. Ouseley and found out he wrote a number of other books that I'll keep on the lookout for. Have any of you read any of them? If so, do tell us about them, please.

  1. Hello. I found this book a couple weeks ago while strolling thru the used book section in a thrift store. I have the 1949 copy! Haven't finished the book but it has already set me off to go find my generator crystal if you know what I mean!

  2. Very cool that you found the book, too, Anonymous. Or was it that the book found you?!

  3. That is such an interesting way to visualise. Although I would not want to 'visualise' during meditation as meditation ideally should be done such that there are less to 0 thoughts
