Light is the mask of the Creator. All life of earth depends on light from the Sun, a source of life and energy. Color is the different qualities of light. Light is the masculine or positive force in Nature, color is the feminine or negative force.
The soul always lives in color. Color is as necessary to the soul as air is to the body. When we take away the motion of light or color, we have no awareness of the appearance of matter. We receive all knowlege of the Universe through this electromagnetic radiation. White light contains the energies of all elements and chemicals found in the sun. This white light of the sun is absorbed from the atmosphere by the physical body and is split into component color energies, which in turn flow to different parts of the body to vitalize them. Light is a force stimulating growth; every living thing depends upon it to build and maintain its form. Light brings about chemical changes in the body. Therefore, light whose source is solar energy is one of Nature's greatest healing forces.
In 1665, Isaac Newton beamed sunlight through a prism and found the presence of the seven basic colors. The human body is also a prism that reflects this white light. Color therapy is the science of using different colors to change or maintain vibrations of the body to that frequency which signifies good health and harmony. Healing by means of color was the first type of therapy used by humans; it is Nature's own method for keeping the body in balance with the rhythms of life. Color expresses the way we think. Our emotions and actions affect the electromagnetic field which surrounds us and is reflected in our aura.
Color can help to restore balance when a blockage of imbalance of this energy has resulted in disease. The use of color can help to restore vitality to the etheric body through the projection of specific color rays, which are then absorbed by the chakra centers. The pituitary gland transforms these colors into revitalizing energies to rebuild the centers that are lacking in energy. Color healing shows us how to make light work for us. The use of color is one of the many natural tools available to help us walk in balance with Nature.
Life is color; each organ has a specific color. Each color has intelligence and polarity, knows its functional role and works selectively. Color is a vibratory energy that can activate a particular organ, gland and system in the body. The application of the correct frequency of the electro-magnetic force field will change the altered function of the body and help return it to its original patterns. It is this energy, which is the result of applying color, that is important in the healing process. This method of healing will create harmony and balance in the mind and in the body. Color therapy is very effective because it helps to maintain this balance.
Color healing is not only a physical, but also a spiritual force and thus forms a link between our physical bodies and the finer forces of vibrations, higher levels of consciousness or spiritual growth. Color is the bridge beween our inner and outer bodies. The vibrations of color are energy of the Life-Force itself and are here to aid us in our growth and progress toward the oneness which is our ultimate purpose. The more intimate our color experiences become, the more attuned we will become with the Universe.
We have a quota of ultraviolet that most of us do not fulfill because so many modern products cut out that portion of the spectrum and because we do not spend enough time outdoors. We can increase our exposure to full-spectrum light by simply being being out in the Sun more.
