About Color Therapy
Color therapy, also known as Chromo therapy, draws on the positive effects of colors to balance the body’s energy centers or chakras. Imbalance in the energy centers is thought to be the key reason behind the manifestation of disease. Imbalance, which could occur in the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental levels, is rectified with color therapy.
The entire spectrum of colors is derived from sunlight. In the light spectrum, each color vibrates at a different frequency. The vibrations of colors transmit energy, which is used to balance the body’s energy centers or chakras.
This form of healing using colors was prevalent thousands of years ago and can be traced back to Ancient Egypt and Greece. In India, ancient Indian scriptures, such as Atharvana Veda, speak of color healing that occurs with the rays of the sun. Further, traditional Ayurveda affirms the healing powers of colors.
The Energy of Color
Every cell in the body requires light energy. Nature itself is full of color. Therefore, it is no surprise that we are drawn to color. Color is energy. The energy vibration of color is used to enhance and balance the physical, emotional and spiritual state of a person.
Harmonious, soothing colors and color combinations are used to promote health and inner harmony, key triggers for healing. The energy of color impacts our mood, health, and thought process. When we heighten our awareness to the energy of color, it helps to transform our pattern of health and well being. Importantly, the mood-enhancing properties of color help to improve overall quality of life.
