Spectrochrome for animals : the basic principles
It's important to know the basic principles because they provide safety and efficiency at the same time. We wish for the animals in our care to recover as quickly as possible, but we have to remember they are more delicate. We must adjust the tonations to accommodate some basic differences. These differences are not about size, they are about the structure of their auras, or bio-electromagnetic fields.

Different kinds of auras
The gigantic expansion of the human brain is, of course, accompanied by a gigantic expansion in the human aura.... indicating a new type of intelligence. (Commonly called the mental body.) Animals do not have a mental body to tonate.  What passes as a mental body is their native intelligence, commonly called instinct. It is sufficient to protect and evolve their species through eons of time. Now that's impressive. I hope we can say the same thing for ourselves. (Smiley face.)
An animal's lack of a mental body is actually a plus when it comes to healing. They can process a tonation faster than a human... and... without all the mental machinations we subject ourselves to. So that's the first big deal.

Animals need less time and are much more sensitive to different colors.
These two factors are interdependent. If the colors sensitivity is taken into account, the time factor becomes obvious.

Even for humans, colors are classified as either hot or cold.
Hot colors: red, orange, yellow, scarlet, lemon.
Cold colors: g reen, turquoise, blue, indigo, purple, violet, magenta.

If an animal is not able to move out of the tonation, it is necessary to monitor for sensitivity to hot colors. Over tonation with a hot color can look like restlessness, irritation, lassitude. If able to move, animals usually get up and leave the tonation whether it's a hot or cold color.

1 . Start out with the 3 foot rule.  That means the lamp is at least 3 feet from the body.
2 . Hot colors: 5 minutes may be sufficient. Monitor if animal is immobile. If able to move, they will leave when they've had enough.
3 . Cold colors: are quite popular and pets are known to crowd right in on someone's tonation when a cold color is running.
4 . Exception  #1 :  Some pets want to move in closer than 3 feet. They know what they're doing.
5. Exception  #2 : If an animal is extremely ill or injured, monitor a very extended tonation. Successful cases of many-hour tonations have been reported. Those tonations involved several colors.

When using multiple modalities, and the healing process stalls, apply tonations.
You will be delighted at how fast the healing plateau is crossed.


One might assume that cats are determined to use up all 9 lives. There seems to be no end to illnesses and injuries.

Injuries: look up the injury in Let there Be Light.  Start with turquoise whether the schedule uses it or not. Cats particularly like blue, so offer a blue tonation. They also like to think the tonation was their idea. Color can be set up to shine into a closet or box where they can "volunteer" to snooze and heal.

Illnesses: if the illness is recurring, start with lemon. Consult Let There Be Light. If diagnosis is not  available or indeterminate always include green. Once again, blue and/or purple may be offered.
Recurring respiratory infections: Sometimes green and blue do not produce the expected results. Try a schedule of lemon, yellow and orange. Monitor these hot colors. Prolonged tonations might be tolerated.


I heard of a dog named Porki. He must be one of the luckiest dogs in the world. For all his trouble and trials, without his love-giver, he probably wouldn't be here. She practices spectrochrome for him, using the book, Let There Be Light. Like many other practitioners, she emphasized that dogs love to be loved.

Successful tonations schedules from the book included :
Cancres : #127
Cysts and tumors : #177 + green and yellow. Look in the "Attributes" chapter to see if yellow applies.
Damaged nerves, including traumatic shaking: #275
Immune deficiency: #289
Loss of movement due to motor nerve damage: #276

Generally speaking:
Antimicrobial : green
Connecting to higher energy centers and meridians: purple, red, and/or magenta
Emotional calming : blues

Other consultants recommended these tonations for:
Any kind of sagging energy (cause unknown) : unlimited green
Calming for sleep : purple; remove when they fall asleep.
Depression in older cats and dogs: 5 minutes scarlet
Picky about food : orange before eating

Rehabilitating shelter dogs: pinks, old rose, possibly magenta; for reassuring emotional relief. Assists in normalizing breath. Your verbal input during these tonations is important. It should be positive, assuring; "out with the old, in with the new."

Very specific muscle atrophy: color painting. Tape filter securely to flashlight. Clear tape will not impede tonation. Don't use duct tape; it will let go due to heat. "Paint" scarlet over the atrophied muscles, moving slowly, stroking muscles lightly as you go. This is a delicate protocol.  Stop if dog/cat become agitated.
