Colour therapy 101


Diana from

Colour is simply light of varying wavelengths and, as such, is a form of energy that is used in Colour Therapy.
Colour Therapy aims to balance and enhance our body’s energy centres/chakras by using the colours of the light spectrum, which can help to stimulate our body’s own healing process.Colour Therapy can be used for any problem whether, physical, mental, emotional for specific problems as well as an over all relaxation therapy.
Colour Therapy can be used safely and effectively – either alone alongside any other therapy, whether complementary or orthodox medicine – for adults, children, babies and non-human animals .
In fact every living thing depends on light to be able to exist. Recent scientific evidence suggests that light is in fact emitted by every cell in our bodies. We live in a sea of energy where color is working within us. It shines with in our divine self, and radiates upon us from the sun. Research and observation has shown us that specific colors bring balance to our physical and emotional systems. Chromotherapy can easily be used as an alternative to Chinese acupuncture, achieving the same results in unblocking meridians without the discomfort of needles used in acupuncture. You can insclude colour therapy into your daily life either from your food, clothes, accessories,  the colour you paint your homes. Let’s take a look at what each colour represent


*White: White is technically not a colour, as it is the result of all the colours mingling together in equal proportions. In the west it is associated with purity, innocence and cleanliness.
*Violet and Indigo: These colours are associated with spirituality, loyalty, divine and love. Leonardo da Vinci claimed that the power of meditation could be enhanced tenfold under the influence of violet rays passing through the stained glass windows of a quiet church. In muted hues this colour can be helpful for treating headaches, neuroses, and certain forms of schizophrenia and dementia.
* Blue: Blue is associated with faith, caring, peace and fidelity. Cornflower and lavender blue in particular represent spiritualism, thoughtfulness, constancy and kindness.
* Green: Green is universally considered to be the colour of growth, healing, selfless love and tranquillity. The green colour of plants promotes love and harmony to ease troubled minds. Green is associated with the heart and when we think green, it attracts whatever we need to feel nurtured and calm. Too much green can create a static condition because it alleviates all stress.
* Yellow: Yellow represents patience, tolerance, contentment, happiness, wisdom and mental energy. It helps to expand horizons. *Orange: Orange represents purity, togetherness and feminine sensuality.
*Pink: Pink is a warming, soothing , reassuring colour that represents love .
Play around and fall in love with colours not just your clothes or accessories but the food you eat. You know I always say the more the colour of food or fruits you tak2 the healthier you are.
So stay colourful
