So, imagine or visualize the element color coming in waves to roll around and away from you. Don't absorb the waves. And the color makes the difference as to the result. Combine the colors to create more combined elements' effects in visualization or imagination. This be called invoking the elements. So be warned, it should be mentioned that practicing this technique can disbalance the practitioner. Thus, I would try grounding to get rid of the excess energy. Basically, imagine yourself attached to the the earth and rooted there, and sending the excess energy throughout that link. It balances out the energy.
Some colors are:Brown or Green = Earth
Red = Fire
Amber = Sunlight
Blue = Water
Clear white or Yellow = Air
Silver white = Electricity
Light red = Light energy
Black or Dark brown = Darkness
What they can do:For electricity: By not absorbing electricity, but feeling its energy waves, you can get energized, you can also heighten your senses and feel more alert.
With light energy: You can feel cold then hot and then feel lighter. But this may vary on those whom try and feel for it. As some also can feel energized.
With sunlight: This be mostly fire, but it may cause different results. You can feel energized and clear headed by the amber waves crashing against you, as well as more heated.
With Darkness: Its voidal and can neutralize any result or energy. By sucking it up into itself. It calms the mind and can cause you to feel weird. There maybe other results with Darkness as well.
With the others: It varies per person to person, on the other elements.
