Correlation of color and sound

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1

Something in the quantum enlightenment thread reminded me of this tract by one of my former mentors, Paul Foster Case's "Correlation of Sound and Color." He reveals heretofore esoteric secrets "so that prepared minds may use color and sound...for the development of a well-rounded consciousness, for the liberation of the profounder powers of subconsciousness in works of that true Magic of Light which from time immemorial has been called theurgy*."
From that work I developed a color-sound-visualization ritual using the 22 Hebrew letters, which themselves correspond to particular notes and colors. The letters are divided into the 3 Mothers, the 7 doubles and the 12 singles. The Mothers refer to the 3 primal elements of air, fire and water, the 7 doubles to the 7 planets and the 12 singles to the astrological signs. Each also has a correspondence in the human body. The Mothers are more general areas, like air the head, water the mid-torso, fire the genitals. The 7 doubles are the chakras, the 12 singles correspond to the astrological body areas. So one chants the Hebrew letter in the corresponding tone, focusing the vibration in the relevant body area while visualizing it bathed in the related color. Magic.
