For the purification of each cycle there are seven special seed mantras. Each mantra starts with the prefix “Om” and ends with the mantra “Swaha.” The goddess Swaha is the female counterpart of the fire God Agni and they co-exist in every purification process.
1. Life cycle – Red color fire
Fire of life covers the process of birth and death. Moreover, as we evolve, we experience a new cycle every seven years in our state of consciousness. The cycles of seven, fourteen, and twenty-one all deal with internal changes, and the cycle of twenty-eight is the first step in external integration with the rest of the world.
2. Seasonal cycle – Orange color fire
Your brain, body and mind reacts and adjusts to the changing seasons. For example, the arrival of autumn brings shorter days. The progressive reduction of the hours of light changes our mood, making us more subject to mild states of anxiety and depressions. The seasonal cycle is purified by meditating on orange color light.
3. The seven day cycle – Yellow color fire
The moon has four distinct phases: new moon, first quarter, full moon and third quarter, each of these approximately seven days apart. These four distinct phases of moon has influence on our life.
4. Sleep-wake cycle – Green color fire
A circadian rhythm or circadian cycle, is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep–wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours. These cycles are triggered by body’s internal clock and the chemicals in the brain. The sleep–wake cycle is purified by meditating on green color light.
5. REM-Non-REM Sleep Cycle – Blue color fire
As you sleep, your body cycles through non-REM and REM sleep. The cycle is repeated three to four times each night. The REM and NREM sleep cycle is purified by meditating on blue color fire. It purifies your dreams.
6. Breathing cycle – Indigo color fire
Meditating on the breathing cycle is an ancient technique to purify the mind. Our breathing consists of repetitive cycles of inhalation and exhalation. With inhalation oxygen enters the lungs and with exhalation carbon dioxide is released. The breath cycle is purified by the indigo color fire.
7. Brain cycle – Violet color fire
Scientists observed that when your right nostril is dominant, the left brain hemisphere is more active. Similarly, when the left nostril is more active the right brain hemisphere is dominant. The brain hemispheres are dominant in a rhythmical fashion. Moreover, the airflow and resistance in each nasal airway alternates from 4 to 8 time a day. The cooperation between the right and left brain is essential for accessing higher consciousness. The brain cycle is purified by the violet color fire.
