“Spirit Led” was the title of Pastor Jack Hayford new series on TV many years ago. How excited I was to hear someone actually teaching on the subject. After watching the first one, then the second, third and so on I realized it was not what I was wanting in those words that thrilled me watch in the first place. Later he went on to produce a book “Living the Spirit formed Life” which you can purchase on his site. Others have attempted to present the concept of living a spiritual life, but after going through the classes and rereading the text left me dry. I wanted more than what man has deciphered and put out as this is all there is. In this post, my hope and prayer is that when you read, that the Holy Spirit will enlighten you to the truth, for you do have the spirit of Truth living inside of YOU!
Two years ago, the Lord gave me a word in a dream that soon He was giving me a new color. As an artist this was very exciting, but it was not what I expected. The color was INDIGO. This started a long search for all that was INDIGO. My first discovery was that it was in everything. Of coarse it was, so I looked to narrow my search. Looking at the Menorah I went down the path of “Micro-waves”. Very interesting study of how this functioned with the color.
Which brought me to the study of wavelength, have you every considered when GOD spoke the universe into existents that it was in FULL LIVING COLOR! Wow, what a thought. But the most profound is when I discovered that INDIGO represented Communion and fellowship which is part of the Spirit that lives inside each one of His imagery. Though I’m getting a little a head of myself.
Before this gets to technical I’m going to start out as if you know nothing and bring you into my thinking, without thinking!

7 Colors of the Rainbow
Have you ever seen a rainbow? Sometimes when the sun is shining and it is rainy somewhere at the same time, you can see a rainbow. It’s a huge arch of colours in the sky. It’s caused by the light from the sun being broken up by water droplets in the atmosphere. The sun’s light is “white”, but the water droplets break it up into seven different colors that are visible to the necked eye. They are always in the same order, but there is more to color than you may think! Color has sound or a frequency, that is not heard by most, but it is still there. We too are made of such color references, which I will explain as best as I can.
Proverbs 11:2 AMP When pride comes [boiling up with an arrogant attitude of self-importance], then come dishonor and shame, But with the humble [the teachable who have been chiseled by trial and who have learned to walk humbly with God] there is wisdom and soundness of mind.
Understanding the Spirit within you
All humans are created with three parts: 1) BODY (flesh, bone, blood) 2) SOUL (mind / heart, will, emotion) 3) SPIRIT (conscience, communion/ fellowship, wisdom ). When you were born your BODY and SOUL controlled you, as your parents or mentor brought you up, your SPIRIT was developed to learn right from wrong. Until you were saved your SPIRIT could not take over, because you had not given permission. At salvation you commit yourself to Christ, G_D, and the Holy Spirit, a commitment to die to oneself and take on the likeness of Christ. That is why when you are talking to a nonbeliever they most of the time do not understand because the Holy Spirit has not unveiled two parts the communion and fellowship to their Soul. This is not to say that the Holy Spirit cannot convict them through the conscience.
RED = WISDOM – SPIRIT
ORANGE = PERSEVERANCE – BODY
YELLOW = MIND / HEART – SOUL Luke 5:22
GREEN = CONSCIENCE – SPIRIT
BLUE = WILL – SOUL
INDIGO = COMMUNION / FELLOWSHIP – SPIRIT 1 John 1
VIOLET = EMOTIONS – SOUL
To live a Spirit Led Life we must filter all things through our spirit. This is when you see, hear or fell through your soul you have the choice to either filter it through your Soul or through your Spirit (this is called the moment of choice). When bring all things into your Spirit Filter, then apply it back through your Soul you will have the Wisdom of the Spirit. When filtering through our soul only it will be applied in a worldly or carnal view. This practice will fell foreign at first, but after you do this many times it will become automatic. Remember we are not born perfect and we must try to become that which reflects Christ in all things.
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Now knowing the three parts of you and what it represent, lets take Philippians 2 and apply what we have learned. Remember just like the rainbow there are colors that you cannot see, but they are still there non-the less. I have applied the technique to the first three verses, now print off the chapter and practice this application to the rest.
PHILIPPINES 2 (NKJV)
Unity Through Humility
2 Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love (SOUL – emotion), if any fellowship (OUR SPIRIT) of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy (SOUL – emotion, SPIRIT – wisdom) 2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded (SOUL – emotion & mind), having the same love (SOUL – emotion), being of one accord (SPIRIT – fellowship), of one mind (SOUL– mind). 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit (SOUL– will & mind), but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself (filtered through the SPIRIT – fellowship, then through the SOUL–mind, applied back through the SPIRIT – wisdom). 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
When you are reading your Bible, first pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten you to God’s word. There are many scriptures that will bring you to the place where the Spirit will led you on your path. I will collect them and present them in another post.
growing your spirit
This is an exercise that will fill you with many emotions. When you hit the button to listen close your eyes an imagine you are in the Throne Room in heaven. Terry MacAlmon “Agnus Dei”
When You are increasing your SPIRIT, remember Who you represent and He will be glad to lead.
I pray all of you will have INDIGO in your life also, Be Blessed!
