Everything is made up of electromagnetic energy vibrating at different frequencies that correspond to sound, light and color. If you pay close attention, you will find yourself drawn more to one color than another. The energy vibration of that color is what you need, at this moment, in order to improve and balance your emotional state.
Color research has shown that in human beings, both psychological and physical activity appear to increase as the wavelength of light increases. Reds, oranges and yellows are naturally more stimulating to us than greens, blues and purples. Other research shows that blood pressure, pulse, and respiration rates tend to increase most under yellow light, moderately under orange, and less under red. They decrease most under black, moderately under blue, and minimally under green.
Traditional color wisdom dates back as ancient Egypt. In Indian philosophy, the seven colors of the rainbow are associated with the seven chakras – energy centers – of the body. Each chakra is related to a specific psychological, physiological, and spiritual functions.
There are numerous ways to heal and balance with color. A good rule of thumb is this: Energy follows thought. Where we put our thoughts is where the energy goes. By concentrating on a particular healing color, the visualization of that color will be projected. If we focus on a color, the energy emanates from our body and begins to change the frequency that resonates with that particular color.
Color is also light. Light is split into different wavelengths vibrating at different speeds and different frequencies. Objects that absorb all wavelengths of light and do not reflect any, are black. Objects that reflect all wavelengths and do reflect anything, are white. Between black and white lies color.
Colors are wavelengths of energy that, to us, appear as color because of the potential and capabilities of the object to either absorb or reflect the energy. This basic principle is how we experience color.
