Healing with Color
RED = VITALITY, COURAGE, SELF CONFIDENCE
Red is called "The Great Energizer" and "The Father of Vitality." Red is warm, vital, heating. It loosens, opens up clogs, releases stiffness and constrictions. It is excellent for areas that have become stiffened or constricted.
Red links with and stimulates the root chakra, at the base of the spine causing the adrenal glands to release adrenalin.
ORANGE = HAPPINESS, CONFIDENCE, RESOURCEFULNESS
Brings joy to our workday and strengthens our appetite for life! Orange is the best
Because orange is a blend of red and yellow, it combines physical energy with mental wisdom, inducing a transformation between lower physical reaction and higher mental response. Thus, it is often referred to as "The Wisdom Ray."
Orange is warm, cheering, non-constricting. Orange helps assimilate new ideas and
stimulate mental enlightenment. Sacral chakra
YELLOW = WISDOM, CLARITY, SELF-ESTEEM Gives us clarity of thought, increases awareness, and stimulates interest and curiosity.
YELLOW is stimulating to the nervous system and the intellect.
Yellow links with and stimulates the solar plexus, or psychic center.
Like the color of gold, yellow represents the highest of the physical colors. "Worth its weight in gold" applies to yellow.
GREEN = BALANCE, LOVE, SELF CONTROL
GREEN is the color of balance, harmony, nature, neutrality and of non-resistance.
Green is the universal healing color. Why is that? Because green is midway in the color spectrum; therefore, it contains both a physical nature and a spiritual nature, in equal balance and in equal harmony.
Green is the color of Nature and the earth. It is balance and harmony in essence and possesses a soothing influence upon both mind and body. It is neither relaxing nor astringent in its impact.
Green corresponds to the heart charka
BLUE = KNOWLEDGE, HEALTH, DECISIVENESS This is a mentally-relaxing color. Blue has a pacifying effect on the nervous system and brings great relaxation.
Blue is cooling, electric, astringent. Blue can have a sedative effect, as expressed in the remark of "feeling Blue." It is a very positive color, indicating loyalty and reliability, as expressed in the sentiment of being "true blue."
BLUE, on the other hand, is at the opposite end of the visible spectrum and is electric, cooling, yin and negative.
Blue links with and stimulates the throat chakra. The throat chakra is often referenced as the "power center" and "the greatest center in the body" because it is the primary center of expression and communication, through speech.
INDIGO = INTUITION, MYSTICISM, UNDERSTANDING The indigo energy connects us to our unconscious self, and gives us the experience of being part of the whole universe. Strengthens intuition, imagination, psychic powers, and increases dream activity.
INDIGO, is the color of our solar system. It is a freeing and purifying agent.
Indigo links with and stimulates the brow chakra (third eye) and controls the pineal gland. It governs both physical and spiritual (not psychic) perception; that is, clairvoyance.
VIOLET = BEAUTY, CREATIVITY, INSPIRATION Purifies our thoughts and feelings giving us inspiration in all undertakings. The violet energy connects us to our spiritual self bringing guidance, wisdom and inner strength. Enhances artistic talent and creativity.
Violet should be used only for spiritually-related problems.
Leonardo da Vinci proclaimed that you can increase the power of meditation ten-fold by meditating under the gentle rays of Violet, as found in Church windows.
VIOLET is the last color we can see before light passes on to ultra-violet.
Violet is truly the color of the divine Spirit.
