Healing with Colors

image1

Color Therapy is a complementary therapy for which there is evidence dating back thousands of years to the ancient cultures of Egypt, China and India. Color is simply light of varying wavelengths, thus each color has its own particular wavelength and energy.

One of the benefits we receive from the sun’s rays is the energy produced when light waves become color.

Emotionally we respond to colors as they fit the time of day or year. The reduction of sunlight on a cloudy day or the long months of winter can significantly affect our emotions.

Lack of sunlight can cause mood swings, depression, low energy level. Most of us notice a fresh, cheerful, vibrant feeling when Spring arrives after a long dark winter.

The seven color rays are spiritual forces emanating from the white light. They are perpetually vibrating – not only on the surface of the earth – but also above and through it, encircling the globe in streams of endless energy.

Color vibrations are a source of power, each one having a general as well as a specific function and purpose.

Colors are connected to the five elements from the natural world; fire, earth, metal, water and wood.

They play a significant role in balancing and healing every aspect of our lives. In paying attention to the colors we are attracted to, we are tuning into our body’s natural instincts to balance something that is out of balance in our energy field. Once this is brought back into balance, healing can take place.

Color therapy, also known as Chroma therapy, is a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) technique. A trained color therapist is able to use color and light to balance energy wherever our bodies are lacking – whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. The diagnostic is used to uncover the cause of psychological stress, which can lead to physical symptoms.

Findings suggest that color and light have been utilized by healers since the beginning of recorded time. Color therapy possibly has roots in Ayurveda, an ancient form of Indian medicine practiced for thousands of years. Other historic roots are linked to ancient Egyptian culture and Chinese healing. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), for example, each organ is associated with a specific color. Ancient Egyptians built solariums (sun rooms) that could be fitted with colored panes of glass. The sun would shine through and flood the patient with color.

When administering color therapy, color and light is applied to specific areas of the body. Because colors are associated with both positive and negative effects in color therapy, specific colors and accurate amounts of the color are deemed to be essential in the healing process. Just as the proper color in the correct area can promote healing, too much color or colors applied erroneously in the wrong places may facilitate adverse health effects.

Common tools used in Chromo therapy include candles, wands, prisms, colored fabric, gemstones, bath treatments, colored glass or lenses, and colored lights. Therapeutic color can be administered in several ways, but it is often done in combination with aromatherapy and/or hydrotherapy in an attempt to heighten the effects of treatment.

Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromo therapy often relate the seven colors of the color spectrum to specific body areas known as chakras.

As with yoga, the chakras are specific spiritual energy centers at different spots on the human body.

Prior to using Color Healing (or Chromo therapy) be sure to check the medical history of your client/patient so that you do not use the wrong color, therefore possibly making their particular problem worse. (For example, do not use Red for patients who suffer from high blood pressure),as hemoglobin to multiply, thus increasing energy and raising body temperature.
