Healing with Colour
Colour is light; split into different wavelengths vibrating at different speeds and at different frequencies. Objects that ABSORB all wavelengths and DO NOT reflect are black in nature. Objects that REFLECT all wavelengths and DO reflect are white in nature. Between black and white lies COLOUR. Colours are wavelengths of energy that, to us, appear as colour because of the potential and capabilities of the object to either absorb or reflect the energy.
Orange has a freeing action upon the mind and body. Because orange is a blend of red and yellow, it combines physical energy with mental wisdom, inducing a transformation between lower physical reaction and higher mental response. Through orange, we are able to heal the physical body (red) and, at the same time, induce within the mind (yellow) greater understanding.
Violet purifies our thoughts and feelings giving us inspiration in all undertakings. The violet energy (made from red and blue) connects us to our spiritual self bringing guidance, wisdom and inner strength, and enhances artistic talent and creativity. Leonardo da Vinci proclaimed that you can increase the power of meditation ten fold by meditating under the gentle rays of violet, as found in church windows.
Red is called “The Great Energizer.” Excellent for areas that are sore and stiff. Red is the first visible colour we see after the infrared band and is beneficial for arthritis, anemia, as a liver stimulant, an energy builder, and for increasing circulation. Red links with and stimulates the base of the spine, causing the adrenal glands to release adrenalin. This results in greater strength, mobility, and healing.
Yellow helps awaken mental inspiration and has a very enriching effect upon the intellect. It is an excellent colour for nervous or nerve-related conditions or ailments; fueling the solar plexus. Yellow can be used for conditions of the stomach, liver, and intestines. as well as helping pores and repairing scar tissue. These rays have an alkalizing effect giving you nerves of steel.
Blue has a pacifying effect on the nervous system encouraging great relaxation. It is ideal for sleep problems. Blue light connects us to holistic thought, and gives us wisdom and clarity enhancing communication and speech. Relaxing, soothing, blue rays bring great calm and peace to the mind that is worried, excited, or in a constant nervous state.
Green is the universal healing colour. Midway in the colour spectrum, it contains both a physical nature and a spiritual nature, in equal balance and in harmony. Green can be used for just about any condition in need of healing and helps relax muscles, nerves, and thoughts. The colour green cleanses and balances our energy, to give a feeling of renewal, peace, and harmony.
