Color is Energy/Chromotherapy
Since recorded history, it’s been known that color affects our feelings, moods, and emotions. In ancient times, great halls of color healing were built. Individuals entered and then bathed in light filtered through various colored glass panels or windows. Chromotherapy may seem like a new healing technique but it’s very old.
What is color?
Colors are wavelengths of electro-magnetic energy seen through our eyes. The color we see is the part of the visible spectrum that’s reflected back by a certain object.
When someone is “color blind” there is no actual blindness but a fault in the development of one or more sets of retinal cones that perceive color in the light and transmit the information to the optic nerve. Color blindness is found in males more often than females because men have only one X chromosome where women have two. The X chromosome is the one that carries photopigments so the chance of it occurring in men is dramatically increased.
How can color help in healing a tired or diseased body? Color is energy and, therefore, color can improve energetic balance. When incorporating color tones in harmony with an individual’s natural vibration, the body’s immune system strengthens. By the same token, incorporating colors not in harmony will increase the imbalance and further compromise the body’s natural ability to heal.
When all colors join together, the result is white light. When using white light for healing, that light (encompassing ALL) brings completeness, oneness, the union of all complementary parts.
Color is all around us and we may take it for granted.
In nature we have the luscious blue sky, crisp green leaves of trees and plants, and beautiful flowers embodying all the colors of the rainbow. One of the best ways to uplift the spirit is to get outdoors, not only to breathe the fresh air but also to experience the breath-taking sights full of ALL colors. Did you ever wonder how many different colors there are? Step out your door, look around, and you’ll find the number is infinite.
Have you visited or seen pictures of Zion and Bryce National Parks in Utah? Bright reds and oranges like fire, purples and pinks in the mountain rocks, and deep, glimmering blues of the lake water. Who could have imagined this painters’ pallet of color beauty but the Creator? What a fabulous color healing vacation it would be!
As a child were you ever asked, “What’s your favorite color?” When I was a very young girl, my favorite color was pink.
The color Pink – heals grief and sadness, restores youthfullness and brings us in contact with our own feelings. It’s regarded as a feminine color and symbolizes softness, sweetness and innocence.
An aversion to Pink may mean someone has a challenge with expressing and embracing their soft and tender, loving side.
As a teenager, my favorite changed to green. This was at the time my parents divorced.
The color Green – has all healing properties; the color of Nature and the earth. It’s a balance and harmony essence and possesses a soothing influence upon both mind and body. It’s neither relaxing nor astringent and can be used for any condition in need of healing.
Interesting how on a subconscious level, we are attracted to what we need!
The color Blue – is cooling, electric, astringent, and a great antiseptic. Helps ailments of speech, communication or the throat and laryngitis.
The color Red – brings warmth, energy and stimulation. Good for energy, fatigue, colds, energizes heart and blood circulation, as well as building up the blood.
The color Orange – warm, cheerful, non-constricting. It has a freeing action on the body and mind, relieving repressions. Also shows new possibilities and other options in life while stimulating enthusiasm and new ideas.
The color Yellow – helps strengthen the nerves and the mind, stimulates higher mentality and good for nervous or nerve-related conditions, and energizes the muscles. Dark Yellow soothes shooting pains.
If you’re feeling down and BLUE (pun intended) go into your closet and find a green, orange, or red shirt to put on. Then go outdoors and look around. Imagine you’re a newborn opening your eyes here on earth for the first time…wow… Mother Nature never lets us down.
While indoors, make sure your surroundings are in color tones that reflect the mood or feeling you’d like to create. Paint the chosen color tones on the walls of your home, pick carpet and furniture which both accent and harmonize like pillows, curtains, and wall hangings to best serve your personal healing. Make sure you have things you enjoy looking at. Buy a beautiful piece of art to accent your favorite room. Hang it where you’d like to create an energetic healing. It doesn’t take much and can be a fun exercise. Try redecorating your living space before starting on an anti-depression drug and see what happens.
Color used for healing is a blossoming, cutting edge healing art that has not gone mainstream. Many more case studies need to be documented. So in this context, it’s a fairly new idea. You won’t find much information written on the subject. I invite you to the next interactive discussion group and hear what a certified color analyst has to share. It’s fascinating!
