Colour Therapy Treatment
What is Colour Therapy? Colours are
simply light of varying
frequencies with red at the lower frequency and violet at the higher.
White light contains all the frequencies and as we know,
each colour has its own particular energy that can be used for healing.
We also know that each colour corresponds with one of our chakras, our
energy centers. Our chakras need to be balanced for our body to be
balanced, and so we need each individual colour. Red corresponds with
our base or root chakra at the base of our spine, and it goes all the
way up until we come to violet at the top or crown chakra.
Colour And Chakras
If we have a slow working or sluggish chakra, this means that its
energy isn't moving properly. There are all kinds of reasons why a
chakra may not be in full health. Applying the correct
colour can go a way to stimulate it back into action. We are
actually very colourful beings if we could just view our own aura and
Lightbody. There is energy coming out of us at all times and around us
in our aura, and the
brighter it is the better.
Colour affects all levels of being from physical to emotional and
spiritual. Although many of us may look at it from a physical point of
view, colour therapy has many more lasting effects than we may realise
including psychological affects.
Colour therapy is a holistic healing modality and can be used alongside
other therapies whether they are alternative or orthodox medicine. It
a non-invasive therapy which anyone can take advantage of. Just think
of all the colours in your life right now, in your home and what you
wear. Do you wear colour? Do you have beautiful colour throughout your
house? Why not take care with how you use colour and try to put the
most pleasing colours around you.
Colour And Mood
Colours around us can affect mood almost immediately. We must remember
that colour enters us
through the eyes, but strangely also through the skin. Although its
individual, here are some
of the moods that colours might cause us to feel.
Motivated, Grounded, Active, Excitement,
Intensity, Warmth, Anger
Stimulation, Creation, Enthusiasm, Happy, Change
Intelligence, Prosperity, Joy, Optimism,
Love, Peace, Health, Harmony,
Nature, Growth, Fertility, Envy
Wisdom, Truth, Loyalty, Water, Uncaring
Spiritual, Wise, Mysterious,
Innocence, Enlightenment, Peace, Oneness
There are all kinds of colours inbetween, for example the colour pink
means Love and Romance, and brown might denote Stability or Earth.
Black is a very grounding hue.
warm colours like Red, Orange and Yellow are known to be upbeat and can
bring changes to the body such as increased heart rate or adrenaline.
Meanwhile, the cooler colours can reduce the same bringing calmness or
even sadness and depression. This is the basis of Colour Therapy and
how we would
use many of the colours depending on need. If you were depressed,
perhaps some yellow or orange could be good for you. If you were
overstimulated, then the answer could be blue or violet.
Kinds Of Treatment
A colour therapist could use a light lamp on you for many
different physical injuries. Some of the issues treated this way are
Healing, Soft Tissue Injuries, Skin Disorders, Seasonal Affective
Disorder, Metabalism or Inner Well-being. People react differently to
light; it will range from person to person.
The safest colour of all is Green (the heart). Think of Archangel
Raphael and his beautiful green. Green is a calming colour of balance,
harmony and love. It is often best to use green at the
start of a treatment and then once more at the end. The lamp will be
applied to the skin/body for five or ten minutes. You can go through
each of the colours or just the ones you need. Each colour is shone on
a different area of the body, ranging from violet at the head and
chest, whereas red shouldn't be used above the legs.
Other ways to treat with colour include wearing different coloured
clothing, scarves, etc, or with stones and
crystals of different vibrations
. I will shortly write an
article about crystals and colour therapy so please watch this space.
note that colour therapy should never replace traditional and orthodox
treatments or any prescription given by a doctor.
