Aura & Chakra Therapy
It has been known for aeons of time that colour plays a major role in setting up a particular mood or state of mind. Colour does affect one’s feelings, moods, and emotions.
Colours are certain wavelengths of electro-magnetic energy seen through our eyes. The colour we see is the part of the visible spectrum that is reflected back by a certain object.
We know that when all colours join the result is white light. Therefore working with White Light brings about completeness, oneness, union of all complementary parts.
How Colours Affect Us
- Colour is one of the languages of the soul, just look at inspired or meditative paintings.
- They influence our mood and emotions.
- They have their impact on our sense of well-being or un-easiness.
- Using and avoiding certain colours is a way of self-expression; it sheds light on our personality.
- Colours affect our way of perception (light colours make a space look big, a high ceiling looks less high when painted in a dark colour, etc.)
- Colours have a symbolic meaning which is immediately recognized by our subconsciousness. It must be said that not all colours mean the same to all persons and all cultures.
- They influence the flow and amount of energy in our bodies.
- Colours tell something about biological attraction and sexual availability.
Before examining colour and its healing implications, we must address a very important concept: that of cause and effect. True healing comes about when the cause of the condition or illness is addressed and transformed. If healing goes no further than a mere relief or masking of the symptoms, then, eventually, that which brought about the need for healing, in the first place, will resurface and manifest itself within the body in one form or another.
Body is an outward expression of that which is taking place within the mind, the soul (subconscious) , and the spirit (superconscious) of the individual. Thus, any healing technique which deals only with the physical body and the energy field of the individual tends to accomplish one thing: it jump starts the individual, so to speak, and gives him or her an added boost of energy. That energy boost then allows that person’s own internal healing mechanism to become mobilized into greater activity.
Keeping this in mind, let us look at how colour can help jump-start the tired or diseased body. Colour healing, known as Chromotherapy, can be implemented in a number of ways. The ancients built great halls of colour healing, where individuals entered and were bathed in light that was filtered through various coloured glass panels or windows.
Energy (spiritual) healers often supplement their healing work with colour healing. As they lay their hands on the patient, they mentally direct specific colour rays into the patient’s aura and body. Oftentimes, the colour used is inspired by the superconscious.
In healing colours act as balancers: we administer the colour(s) someone needs more of, or we give the opposite of the colour someone has too much of.
