Color affects our physical, mental and spiritual being. Color therapy uses the healing properties of colors to stabilize energy levels in our body parts. We certainly could do with some color in therapy. But color therapy? That’s right. And it is really about healing with something as simple as color.[via]
It is true that our bodies are dependent on light and operate as prisms. So, when the sun shines on to our body, the white light creates rainbow colors which fragment equally in to seven chakras or energy centers of the body, which are our batteries.
The method of color therapy is based on the law of resonant colors interaction, conterminous to frequency characteristics of body. Color is absorbed by our magnetic energy field or aura and the energy of color affects our physical, spiritual and emotional levels. Every cell in the body needs light energy. Thus, color energy has wide spread effects on whole body.
Colored light can be used directly on the body’s health and immune strength, affecting the body and the emotions. It does not alter the material make up of the body, but rather the vibration aspect. The aura of the healthy person has pure colors. The mechanism of many illnesses is caused by infringement of color harmony, mixture of colors and also deficiency of the certain color necessary for normal activity of the organs and mind-emotional condition of the person.
RED stimulates brain wave activity, increases heart rate, respirations and blood pressure, excites sexual glands. It energizes the first chakra (coccyx).

TREATMENT WITH COLOR:
You can practice some exercises to heal your chakras.
Exercise to Heal Chakras
* Balancing the chakras. Take 7 clothes of different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Put violet cloth on the crown chakra. Place the rest clothes over your body at the appropriate chakra. Relax and breathe deeply for 5 minutes. The body will absorb these colors and saturate the charkas, in that way the vibrations in your body will be balanced.
* With a deep breathing imagine that you breathe air into every part, every organ of your body. This air is transformed then into different frequencies of energy. Inhale slowly though your nostrils and exhale through the mouth. Inhale and exhale to the count of 5. Place the tip of the tongue to the palate of the mouth during breathing. See and feel the air coming in at a certain color. This exercise can be done for 10 minutes in the morning.
* This exercise is used when you feel that some basic color needs stimulating. Water can be infused with the color by placing water in colored glasses and exposing the water for 3 hours to sunlight. The next day drink the water. Water can be also placed in the glass with the colored paper over it and being exposed to the sunlight for 3 hours.
Color therapy is a prolonged method of stimulation. This method of healing is carried out with the help of felt-tip pens, markers, color varnishes and color pencils.
Treatment by color can be performed on finger meridians, on chakras, painting the certain points by the certain color following the laws of colors interaction and thus changing the energy potential both in the point as well as in all meridian and hence in organ.
