Color therapy or Chromotherapy, also known as light therapy, colorology, or healing with color was practiced by ancient Egyptians as well as Native American Indians. Chromotherapy is applicable even today as an alternative treatment where the vibration and energy from each color is used to heal.

For instance:

  • The color red is used to improve blood circulation.
  • Yellow is used as a nerve stimulant and to cleanse the body.
  • Orange is used to boost energy levels and heal the lungs
  • Blue is used to relieve pain.
  • Indigo shades are used to relieve skin problems.

Though there has been a certain acceptance of these theories, still chromology is often not considered as a matured discipline and therefore chromotherapy, is still only considered as an alternative form of treatment .

Different tools can be used for Color therapy and include:

  • Gemstones
  • Candles or Lamps
  • Crystal, glass prisms, wands
  • Fabrics of different colors
  • Bath different using different color foams or soaps
  • Colored eye lenses
  • Lasers

Different gemstones radiate different colors and are worn on the body as rings or in lockets to give us different vibrations. Some experts strongly believe that some of these take away the negative energy from around us and others believe that they can have protective effects. In the end if you strongly believe in it, it may just work for you. So it is with lighting different colored lamps in your house or keeping a crystal or wearing different colors fabrics. It is the belief too that works in healing of the mind, body and the spirit

Whether colors impact our mind or not, they are unquestionably mind- blowing. We cannot imagine life without color. Indeed, this is a powerful approbation of its profound influence in our lives. Life is colorful- literally and figuratively!

I found this article interesting to read. It explained very well, in a way that was easy to understand, how the energy of the color is transferred to our bodies. It is very easy for us to not take that much notice of color but when we give it more conscious thought and awareness, we can see so much more about ourselves. http://chakrabalancingproducts.com/chakra-therapy-chakra-colors/
