(Editor’s Note: The author of this excerpt shares with us that the visible spectrum is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. Electromagnetic radiation in this range of wavelengths is called visible light. Light is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, higher in frequency than radio waves, but below X-rays. Curiously, the spectrum of visible light, between ultraviolet and infrared, is almost exactly an octave. Interesting, don’t you think?)

Throughout history Art has had great power to influence. Colors alone have been an expression and silent language of life, man, nature and culture. Every idea and sensation possesses a color…colors are thoughts! In essence there exists within each of us a rainbow array of emotions and ideas. Our ability to harness and ignite such emotions, ideas and passions can directly impact our creative energy.

Art in its many forms of painting, poetry, music, singing, architecture, writing, dance, sacred geometry, archetypes and theater are manifestations of creative forces at work. It is generally understood that ignited creativity brings forth inspiring and passionate art in all its forms. However, the even more exciting revelation is that, when we experience such inspired art, it has the power to unleash our creative forces for application in various other areas of life – including school, work, relationships and wellness.

There is a need to open our hearts and eyes to see and experience the colors of life, including those that are beyond the visible spectrum. In doing so, we can truly connect with our creative passions and potential. Art is an experience of the sublime, or the divine. It enriches our lives, and by inspiring us it raises our beings into higher states of vibrations, connecting us with our inner divine force. This, is the mission of Art, it touches us so we can raise our inspirational level and awaken the forces of creativity and consciousness.

The Violet Color:

Violet is the color of seekers. It has the highest vibration of all colors and corresponds, in music, to “Ti” and, to the Moon in the planetary cycle. Wagner had his studio painted in violet, and composed his music to the vibration of the violet color. Many artists have used violet’s high vibration to inspire them in their creative expressions. Masters have “talked” to humanity through the emanation of this high vibrational color ray. As a fountain of violet singing flame, the Blue or Purple Flames have magnetized people for centuries, from every corner of the world, setting them free from every binding condition of body, mind and soul.

The Ultra-Violet Ray is called ultra because it goes “beyond our senses.” It is the frequency that connects us between our bodies and our Spirits.

In my Invisible Art & Light Technique©, the vibration is an octave higher than the vibration of the violet color, which means: it is beyond the body of the violet color. Because of this, it reaches beyond the visible spectrum. Black light combined with natural light are needed to view my paintings using this technique. Under the black light, viewers can experience the transformation of each painting from an oil-on-canvas depicting the physical world– to an incredibly vibrant painting that, when the lights are dimmed, exposes the non-physical world that surrounds us. Viewers experience a breakthrough to a new path and a new consciousness.

The Vibration of the Ultraviolet or Black Light:

The Ultraviolet or Black light is a space where all colors are manifested, and creates a vastness in unity and harmony. Ultraviolet and Black light go 1/8th outside of the spectrum that our eyes can see*. Interestingly, images only visible in ultraviolet light can be seen by some nocturnal animals. Divine energy can more easily be manifested through the ultraviolet spectrum. The Invisible Art & Light Technique© embodies new forms of expressions that, project images and higher vibrations of the dimensions beyond our physical existence–and all that exists in Higher planes–into “our physical reality.”

These concepts provoke amazing manifestations of creativity in workshops I teach for both children and adults. Students of all ages experience breathtaking insights fueled by their own inspired creativity and enlightened vision. By experiencing “invisible dimensions” students are awakened to new capacity for creative development in multiple sectors of life.

I highly recommend your own exploration into the Invisible dimensions of color and art if you seek to inspire your own creativity.
