Colors

Image result for colorsEverything in our entire universe is different vibration and expression of the energy itself. On our planet one of the vital life force is the energy expressed as a light. Our most important energy source is light, and the entire spectrum of colors is derived from light.

The impact of radiation is such that it can change heat to light. This is the principle that is applicable in the inter-cellular energy exchange that lights up the glow worm. It is this energy which directs owls and bats to their prey in the distant darkness and enables carrier pigeons to chart their course across enormous expanses. Even the phases of the moon are known to have effect on not only poets and lovers but also psychopaths and arthritics.The Universe is a magnetic field of positive and negative charges, constantly vibrating and producing electromagnetic waves. Each of these has a different wavelength and speed of vibration; together they form the electromagnetic spectrum.

This mysterious force, known as cosmic rays, has evaded exact measurement and explanation, causing myth and superstition to play havoc with man.

Light flows through our eyes and triggers hormone production, which influences our entire complex biochemical system.

This biochemical system then affects our being. And light does not travel alone.

Light travels with other energies as illustrated on below table.Related image

One way colors in sunlight are made visible to us is to pass white light through a prism. Because each of the colors has a different wavelength, each is bent by a different amount. Rainbows are formed when water droplets in the sky act as natural prisms. As sunlight passes through the droplets, each of the different rays is bent by a different amount, creating a rainbow. The rainbow colors form one “octave” of light and are known as the “true hues.”

At either end of the visible spectrum are many wavelengths we cannot see. Ultraviolet light is just beyond violet, and farther beyond this are electromagnetic rays with increasing frequencies as the wavelengths get progressively shorter; these include X-rays and gamma rays.

At the opposite end, infrared light is found just beyond red light. Like red it has warming qualities although it gives off more concentrated heat; these qualities are utilized in infrared lamps. Beyond this are electromagnetic rays with increasing wavelengths and decreasing frequencies; these include radio waves.

Mystics have long believed that we can see colors well outside our normal range of vision by opening our “third eye” during meditation.

We know that each color found in the visible light spectrum has its own wavelength and its own frequency, which produces a specific energy and has a nutritive effect. We know some rays can be dangerous if we are exposed to them. But the visible light, the rainbow, has a soothing effect on us.

Light is the only energy we can see and we seeing it in the form of color.

Color is the product of light. A ray of white light passing through a prism is separated into the colors seen in a rainbow. If a room is dark no color is seen. A color is seen on an object or surface because light bounces off the surface reflecting a particular light wave.

Color is energy or vibration and is used to heal imbalances. The body is painted with the hue of the adjacent chakra, or energy wheel.Color energy is absorbed effortlessly. The etheric layer accepts the energy and distributes it throughout the physical, mental and emotional bodies.

Related imageColor is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, blue, yellow, green, orange, or purple. This perception of color derives from the stimulation of cone cells in the human eye by electromagnetic radiation in the spectrum of light. Color categories and physical specifications of color are associated with objects through the wavelength of the light that is reflected from them. This reflection is governed by the object’s physical properties such as light absorption, emission spectra, etc.

White light can be separated into three basic or primary colors: red-orange, green, and blue-violet. When these colors of light are projected together (e.g. if a lighting engineer in a theater were to merge spotlights of these colors together), they create white light. This is called additive mixing of colors; it is sued, for instance, by color therapists healing with colored light.

The colors that make up the pigments we use in paints, fabrics, and other materials are different; they are obtained by subtraction of light. This effect produces a different trio of primary pigment colors: red, blue, and yellow; they are considered primary because they cannot be made from other colors. When these are combined as paints, they produce black. Subtractive mixing of colors is used, for instance, when working with paints or objects like clothes or furnishings.

The photo-receptivity of the “eyes” of other species also varies considerably from that of humans and so results in correspondingly different color perceptions that cannot readily be compared to one another.Most light sources emit light at many different wavelengths; a source’s spectrum is a distribution giving its intensity at each wavelength. Although the spectrum of light arriving at the eye from a given direction determines the color sensation in that direction, there are many more possible spectral combinations than color sensations. In fact, one may formally define a color as a class of spectra that give rise to the same color sensation, although such classes would vary widely among different species, and to a lesser extent among individuals within the same species. Electromagnetic radiation is characterized by its wavelength (or frequency) and its intensity. When the wavelength is within the visible spectrum (the range of wavelengths humans can perceive, approximately from 390 nm to 700 nm), it is known as “visible light”.Related image

The outer curved boundary is the spectral (or monochromatic) locus, with wavelengths shown in nanometers. The colors depicted depend on the color space of the device on which you are viewing the image, and therefore may not be a strictly accurate representation of the color at a particular position, and especially not for monochromatic colors.The color table should not be interpreted as a definitive list – the pure spectral colors form a continuous spectrum, and how it is divided into distinct colors    linguistically is a matter of culture and historical contingency (although people everywhere have been shown to perceive  colors in the same way.The color of an object depends on both the physics of the object in its environment and the characteristics of the perceiving eye and brain. Physically, objects can be said to have the color of the light leaving their surfaces, which normally depends on the spectrum of the incident illumination and the reflectance properties of the surface, as well as potentially on the angles of illumination and viewing. Some objects not only reflect light, but also transmit light or emit light themselves, which also contributes to the color. A viewer’s perception of the object’s color depends not only on the spectrum of the light leaving its surface, but also on a host of contextual cues, so that color differences between objects can be discerned mostly independent of the lighting spectrum, viewing angle, etc.

In physics, energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms. The “ability of a system to perform work” is a common description, but it is difficult to give one single comprehensive definition of energy because of its many forms

Common energy forms include the kinetic energy of a moving object, the potential energy stored by an object’s position in a force field (gravitational, electric or magnetic), the elastic stored by stretching solid objects, the chemical energy released when a fuel burns, the radiant energy carried by light, and the thermal energy due to an object’s temperature. All of the many forms of energy are convertible to other kinds of energy. In Newtonian physics, there is a universal law of conservation of energy which says that energy can be neither created nor be destroyed; however, it can change from one form to another.

Our most important energy source is light, and the entire spectrum of colors is derived from light. Sunlight, which contains all the wavelengths, consists of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we depend on to exist on this planet.

Image result for sun light

Light arriving at an opaque surface is either reflected “specularly” (that is, in the manner of a mirror), scattered (that is, reflected with diffuse scattering), or absorbed – or some combination of these.

Opaque objects that do not reflect specularly (which tend to have rough surfaces) have their color determined by which wavelengths of light they scatter strongly (with the light that is not scattered being absorbed). If objects scatter all wavelengths with roughly equal strength, they appear white. If they absorb all wavelengths, they appear black.

Opaque objects that specularly reflect light of different wavelengths with different efficiencies look like mirrors tinted with colors determined by those differences. An object that reflects some fraction of impinging light and absorbs the rest may look black but also be faintly reflective; examples are black objects coated with layers of enamel or lacquer.

Objects that transmit light are either translucent (scattering the transmitted light) or transparent (not scattering the transmitted light). If they also absorb (or reflect) light of various wavelengths differentially, they appear tinted with a color determined by the nature of that absorption (or that reflectance).

Objects may emit light that they generate from having excited electrons, rather than merely reflecting or transmitting light. The electrons may be excited due to elevated temperature (incandescence), as a result of chemical reactions (chemoluminescence), after absorbing light of other frequencies (“fluorescence” or “phosphorescence”) or from electrical contacts as in light emitting diodes, or other light sources.

To summarize, the color of an object is a complex result of its surface properties, its transmission properties, and its emission properties, all of which contribute to the mix of wavelengths in the light leaving the surface of the object. The perceived color is then further conditioned by the nature of the ambient illumination, and by the color properties of other objects nearby, and via other characteristics of the perceiving eye and brain.

The ability of the human eye to distinguish colors is based upon the varying sensitivity of different cells in the retina to light of different wavelengths. Humans are trichromatic—the retina contains three types of color receptor cells, or cones. One type, relatively distinct from the other two, is most responsive to light that is perceived as blue or blue-violet, with wavelengths around 450 nm; cones of this type are sometimes called short-wavelength conesS cones, or blue cones. The other two types are closely related genetically and chemically: middle-wavelength conesM cones, or green cones are most sensitive to light perceived as green, with wavelengths around 540 nm, while the long-wavelength conesL cones, or red cones, are most sensitive to light is perceived as greenish yellow, with wavelengths around 570  nm.

Light flows through our eyes and triggers hormone production, which influences our entire complex biochemical system. This biochemical system then affects our being. And light does not travel alone. Light travels with other energies as illustrated on the right.

We know that each color found in the visible light spectrum has its own wavelength and its own frequency, which produces a specific energy and has a nutritive effect. We know some rays can be dangerous if we are exposed to them. But the visible light, the rainbow, has a soothing effect on us.

Light consists of the seven color energies: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. Each color is connected to various areas of our body and will affect us differently emotionally, physically, and mentally. By learning how each color influences us, we can effectively use color to give us an extra boost of energy when we need it. If you wake up in the morning with little energy, or you need to prepare for a business meeting, this is where the power of colors can help. All you have to do is reflect on the type of day you have planned; choose the color that will help you meet the demands of the day; and then absorb that particular color. It’s like fueling your system with the right kind of gas.

Sunlight, which contains all the wavelengths, consists of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we depend on to exist on this planet.

We can see about 40% of the colors, contained in sunlight. So although white light appears colorless and intangible, it is made up of distinct color vibrations, which have not only wavelengths but also a “corpuscular structure.” The radiant energy of pure white sunlight is a vital factor in nourishing our bodies, our minds, and our spirits, and each color vibration has its own healing qualities.

The colors is light

One way colors in sunlight are made visible to us is to pass white light through a prism. Because each of the colors has a different wavelength, each is bent by a different amount. Rainbows are formed when water droplets in the sky act as natural prisms. As sunlight passes through the droplets, each of the different rays is bent by a different amount, creating a rainbow. The rainbow colors form one “octave” of light and are known as the “true hues.”

Human electricity energy is generated by chemical processes in nerve cells. Billions of nerve impulses travel throughout the human brain and nervous system. A nerve impulse is a wave of electrical activity that passes from one end of nerve cell to another. Each impulse is the same size it; it is the frequency, impulses per second, that carries information about the intensity of the nerve signal.

Neurons are the basic unit of the nervous system. Neurons are responsible for sending, receiving, and interpreting information from all parts of the body.

Light, no matter how complex its composition of wavelengths, is reduced to three color components by the eye. Each cone type adheres to the principle of univariance, which is that each cone’s output is determined by the amount of light that falls on it over all wavelengths. For each location in the visual field, the three types of cones yield three signals based on the extent to which each is stimulated. These amounts of stimulation are sometimes called tristimulus values.

The response curve as a function of wavelength varies for each type of cone.

The visual dorsal stream (green) and ventral stream (purple) are shown. The ventral stream is responsible for color perception.Color information is transmitted out of the eye by three opponent processes, or opponent channels, each constructed from the raw output of the cones: a red–green channel, a blue–yellow channel, and a black–white “luminance” channel. This theory has been supported by neurobiology, and accounts for the structure of our subjective color experience. Specifically, it explains why humans cannot perceive a “reddish green” or “yellowish blue”, and it predicts the color wheel: it is the collection of colors for which at least one of the two color channels measures a value at one of its extremes.

Colors of the rainbow are always arranged in the same order because of the length of the individual light rays. Remember, we see a rainbow because of light breaking down through the rain drops (sort of like a prism).

Transparent body showing the nervous system, electricity system throughout body creating the human electromagnetic field. Nervous System – Human Electrical System

The nervous system is a network of cells called neurons which transmit information in the form of electrical signals. In the brain alone there are around 100 billion and there is a similar amount in the nervous system tissues throughout the rest of the body.

Electricity passing through a wire creates magnetism; human electricity can create a human magnetism.

Image from the human electromagnetic field around the body. As electricity passes through a metal wire it causes an energy field or magnetic field. In a similar way, human electricity in the brain and nervous system creates human magnetic fields. There are billions of nerve impulses in the body and these are constantly creating complex human magnetic fields.

The human heart is a source of electro-magnetism that, even at a few meters away, is detectable by modern scientific instruments.

When close to some people, you may feel as if your body and mind becomes more energized, more hopeful and optimistic.

When close to other people, you may feel as if your energy drains away, a depressing or lazy feeling.

Energy wave, demonstrates that human electricity may also transmit to great distances.

The Universe is a magnetic field of positive and negative charges, constantly vibrating and producing electromagnetic waves. Each of these has a different wavelength and speed of vibration; together they form the electromagnetic spectrum. Every color belonging to the spectrum possesses a particular wave length of light and force; it contains a particular type of energy. Thus the seven colors of the spectrum contain seven different types of energy levels which play a vital role in the functioning of the cells of the human body and environment.

Just as sound waves can be transformed into light waves under given conditions and music can be seen as color, the human frame too constantly emanates various waves which interact with other waves present in the cosmos.

Electric force can transform into different types of energy waves, such as heat, radiation, radio and micro waves; and these energy waves can travel a long distance.

A changing magnetic field will induce a changing electric field and vice-versa, the two are linked. These changing fields form electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic waves can travel not only through air and solid materials, but also through space.

Red is the longest wavelength we can see and it has the slowest frequency of vibration. Its magnetic energy is warming and stimulating. Violet has the shortest wavelength and the quickest vibration. It is cooling and cleansing.

Just as sound waves can be transformed into light waves under given conditions and music can be seen as color, the human frame too constantly emanates various waves which interact with other waves present in the cosmos.

If a “wavelength” appears darkened in the viewer for a particular object, that means we don’t yet have an image of that object in that wavelength.

This energy, called electromagnetic energy, travels in pulses or waves. Like waves traveling through the ocean, they can be very long and lazy, very short and peppy, or anything in between.

Visible light is what we call the particular range of wavelengths that our eyes can see.

Beyond the visible spectrum

At either end of the visible spectrum are many wavelengths we cannot see. Ultraviolet light is just beyond violet, and farther beyond this are electromagnetic rays with increasing frequencies as the wavelengths get progressively shorter; these include X-rays and gamma rays.

At the opposite end, infrared light is found just beyond red light. Like red it has warming qualities although it gives off more concentrated heat; these qualities are utilized in infrared lamps. Beyond this are electromagnetic rays with increasing wavelengths and decreasing frequencies; these include radio waves.

Mystics have long believed that we can see colors well outside our normal range of vision by opening our “third eye” during meditation.

Making Colors

The color wheel or color circle is the basic tool for combining colors.

The color wheel is designed so that virtually any colors you pick from it will look good together. Over the years, many variations of the basic design have been made, but the most common version is a wheel of 12 colors based on the RYB (or artistic) color model.

Traditionally, there are a number of color combinations that are considered especially pleasing. These are called color harmonies or color chords and they consist of two or more colors with a fixed relation in the color wheel.

Color Impact is designed to dynamically create a color wheel to match your base color.

Primary,Secondary and Tertiary Colors

In the RYB (or subtractive) color model, the primary colors are red, yellow and blue.

The three secondary colors (green, orange and purple) are created by mixing two primary colors.

Another six tertiary colors are created by mixing primary and secondary colors.

The human nervous system can create electric energy waves that can be measured with scientific instruments. The human body produces infra-red radiation that, with night vision equipment, can be seen from miles away.

The color circle can be divided into warm and cool colors.

Warm colors are vivid and energetic, and tend to advance in space.

Cool colors give an impression of calm, and create a soothing impression.

White, black and gray are considered to be neutral.If a color is made lighter by adding white, the result is called a tint. If black is added, the darker version is called a shade. And if gray is added, the result is a different tone.

If we arrange all these colors around a circle we have a color wheel. Looking at the color wheel we can see that certain colors fall opposite to each other. Each color has a complimentary or opposite hue. So on the color wheel we have three complementary pairs.

Just as positive and negative magnets attract each other, so do complementary colors. You can prove this for yourself by staring at each color in turn and then quickly moving your gaze to a white piece of paper. For a few moments you will be able to see an after-image of the complementary color on the paper.

You could keep mixing adjacent colors to produce color wheels with 12, 24, 48 or more variations; each time the difference between two adjacent colors becomes more subtle.

You can also make another color wheel from the additive colors of light. The colors featured on this alternative wheel would be the three primaries of red, green and blue-violet, and the secondary colors of turquoise, yellow and magenta.

If you combine any two primary color pigments, you end up with another trio of pigments: red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green, and red and blue make violet. These are the three secondary colors.

White light can be separated into three basic or primary colors: red-orange, green, and blue-violet. When these colors of light are projected together (e.g. if a lighting engineer in a theater were to merge spotlights of these colors together), they create white light.

The colors that make up the pigments we use in paints, fabrics, and other materials are different; they are obtained by subtraction of light. This effect produces a different trio of primary pigment colors: red, blue, and yellow; they are considered primary because they cannot be made from other colors. When these are combined as paints, they produce black. Subtractive mixing of colors is used, for instance, when working with paints or objects like clothes or furnishings.

Color Theory is a set of principles used to create harmonious color combinations. Color relationships can be visually represented with a color wheel — the color spectrum wrapped onto a circle.

The color wheel is a visual representation of color theory:

According to color theory, harmonious color combinations use any two colors opposite each other on the color wheel, any three colors equally spaced around the color wheel forming a triangle, or any four colors forming a rectangle (actually, two pairs of colors opposite each other). The harmonious color combinations are called color schemes – sometimes the term ‘color harmonies’ is also used. Color schemes remain harmonious regardless of the rotation angle.

This is called additive mixing of colors; it is sued, for instance, by color therapists healing with colored light.

Complementary color scheme
Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are considered to be complementary colors (example: red and green).

The high contrast of complementary colors creates a vibrant look especially when used at full saturation. This color scheme must be managed well so it is not jarring.

Complementary color schemes are tricky to use in large doses, but work well when you want something to stand out.

Complementary colors are really bad for text.

Analogous color scheme
Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene and comfortable designs.

Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye.

Make sure you have enough contrast when choosing an analogous color scheme.

Choose one color to dominate, a second to support. The third color is used (along with black, white or gray) as an accent.

Monochromatic Color Scheme

The monochromatic color scheme uses variations in lightness and saturation of a single color. This scheme looks clean and elegant. Monochromatic colors go well together, producing a soothing effect. The monochromatic scheme is very easy on the eyes, especially with blue or green hues.

 

Split Complementary Color Scheme

The split complementary scheme is a variation of the standard complementary scheme. It uses a color and the two colors adjacent to its complementary. This provides high contrast without the strong tension of the complementary scheme.

Triadic Color SchemeRelated image

The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel. This scheme is popular among artists because it offers strong visual contrast while retaining harmony and color richness. The triadic scheme is not as contrasting as the complementary scheme, but it looks more balanced and harmonious.
A triadic color scheme uses colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel.

Triadic color harmonies tend to be quite vibrant, even if you use pale or unsaturated versions of your hues.

To use a triadic harmony successfully, the colors should be carefully balanced – let one color dominate and use the two others for accent.

 

Tetradic (Double Complementary) Color SchemeRelated image

Tetradic colors are those that form a rectangle on the color wheel, and are also sometimes called rectangular colors.

In a tetradic color set there are two complementary color pairs rotated 60 degrees from each other. Not a description that does well with words so take a look at the image to the right. It makes more sense visually.

Because tetradic colors are made up of complements it tends to be a very vibrant, although possibly jarring, color scheme. Care needs to be taken when using this scheme and it is best if one of the colors is dominant to the others.

The tetradic (double complementary) scheme is the most varied because it uses two complementary color pairs. This scheme is hard to harmonize; if all four hues are used in equal amounts, the scheme may look unbalanced, so you should choose a color to be dominant or subdue the colors.

Light consists of the seven color energies: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. Each color is connected to various areas of our body and will affect us differently emotionally, physically, and mentally. By learning how each color influences us, we can effectively use color to give us an extra boost of energy when we need it.

As we are comprised of 4 bodies- physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – we should be able to distinguish how color affects those bodies. The chart below attempts to do this.

If you wake up in the morning with little energy, or you need to prepare for a business meeting, this is where the power of colors can help. All you have to do is reflect on the type of day you have planned; choose the color that will help you meet the demands of the day; and then absorb that particular color. It’s like fueling your system with the right kind of gas.

RED
Ranges from a very deep to a very pale red.
It is the symbol to life, strength and vitality. Red is the color of energy, vitality and power. It is used for burning out cancer, drying up weeping sores or wounds, etc., it will warm cold areas to reduce pain. Red is a powerful healing agent for healing diseases of the blood and circulation. It will help with depression. Red is not to be used on people with high blood pressure or anxiety. If you stay under the red ray too long or are exposed to red for a considerable time it will make you very agitated or even aggressive. It is associated with the male polarity. A red carpet or wall – in a place of business – will draw money. If you are a sales person – try wearing something red!!
Treats anemia or iron deficiency through its effect on the hemoglobin, it increases energy, raises body temperature and improves circulation. This makes it a good color to use in paralysis.
It is a masculine energy.
When used in conjunction with its complementary color (Turquoise), red helps counteract infections. The red increases the blood supply to the area, which deals with the invading bacteria, and the turquoise helps to cleanse and reduce inflammation

MAGENTA
On a physical/mental level, it allows us to let go of ideas and thought patterns which are no longer right for us.
When magenta fades into a pale pink, it becomes the color of spiritual love. This is mainly used on the emotional aspect of a person. For example, someone with a broken heart.

ORANGE – this is the symbol of feminine energy, the energy of creation.
Its complementary to the red energy therefore it is important that these two colours should work in harmony.
This color influences both physical vitality and the intellect.
The color of joy and happiness, and enables us to create a balance between our physical and mental bodies. The mental body in both its logical and conceptual form. It is used to increase immunity, to increase sexual potency, to help in all digestive ailments, chest and kidney diseases. Orange will have a gentle warming effect if used lightly. Orange, like red should not be used for too long. It is not a good color for nervous people or people easily agitated.
Helps disperse depression. So good for people who are manic depressive or suicidal.
Treats stones in the kidney and gall bladder.
Very beneficial for people with chronic bronchitis, and with regular treatment can clear any build up of phlegm and the accompanying cough.
Also an anti spasmodic effect so beneficial in cases of muscle spasms and cramp.

PEACH

The peach frequency is used for peace, truth, and balance.

YELLOW
Yellow
 is the symbol of mind and intellect. It represents the power of thought and intellectuality and stimulates mental activity. Yellow is the color of intellect and it is used for mental stimulation, it will help you think quicker. It is good for clearing a foggy head. To help cure dermatitis and other skin problems and again it must be used carefully because it is very stimulating and it could cause exhaustion and depression.
It strengthens the nerves and stimulates higher mentality. It activates the motor nerves in the physical body, generating energy in the muscles.
Yellow works with healing eczema. Also rheumatic and arthritic conditions because it helps to break down the calcium deposits which have formed in the joints.

GREEN –  is the color of balance, harmony and sympathy, and therefore has the power to bring the negative and positive energies of a human being into balance.
Balancing body, mind, and spirit thus creating wholeness.
Good for antiseptic also can be used for detoxification and in some cases of heart disease.
When used in conjunction with its complementary colour (Magenta), it is used to treat malignant tumours.

Color Healing – ClothingImage result for color rays

The colors you wear effect your mood and that of those around you. You may be drawn to wear a certain color on a particular day. It usually means that colored is need by one of your sheath bodies.

I generally wear silk shirts and slacks to do my work every day. Each morning I look through my closet at a collection of shirts mostly long sleeve–that I have in every color– some in various shades–like four shades of purple.

I must have at least 50 silk shirts–all of which I love and wear! I am not a person who keeps useless things around. I am always throwing –or giving –things away!

I am never sure why I chose the color shirt I pick to wear that day– but a psychic connection always seems to exist between the color I select and the clients I read. I never know in advance what each client is coming to discuss–even if they are repeat clients.

I just stand in the closet–it is a huge closet– look around–psych a color–and get dressed!

It is as if I choose a color that is the frequency that they need brought into their vibrational fields. Often I feel the color chooses me!

Here’s an example:

One day I chose a pink shirt. Everyone who came for a reading came to talk about a “love relationship”. Another day I wore royal blue. All of my clients that day were on a spiritual path.

Think about the colors you choose to wear each day. Look at your colors for today. This was probably selected on a subconscious level. See how it applies to your activities of today! Just what is it that you were seeking today?

Color Healing and Your Surroundings

The color of your surroundings–at home–work– in your car–can determine your mood. Selecting the correct color for your bedroom can help you sleep better.

Colors and the Food You Eat

Eating food of certain colors can actually balance your energies. This is true of the liquids you drink.
