Colors and its effect on human

Color therapy: resources

Basis and concept of color therapy

      Colors may have played a very important role in the life of early human beings, whose very existence was governed by light and darkness. The concept of color therapy probably originated in ancient Egypt several thousand years ago. The concept of colortherapy is based on the fact that our physiologic functions respond in predictable manner to specific colors. Colors and light are intimately connected to human being the land, rivers, trees, forests, and oceans. In fact the every living thing depends on light and to be able to exist most of the living organisms depend on the colors. Colortherapy specialists use color in a variety of ways to promote health and healing. Most living things including human being get energized by variety of colors in the day light including bright red, orange, and yellow colors, and calmed and rejuvenated by the blue, indigo, and violet colors of the night. There is some scientific evidence to suggest that every cell in our bodies in fact emits light. Color therapy, also known as chromo therapy, is practiced by many alternative health practitioners. The different colors we see in the world around us are the result of light vibrating at different frequencies.

      For the ancients, the colors that make up sunlight were each considered to show a different aspect of the divine and to influence different qualities of life. A therapist trained in colortherapy uses color to balance energy wherever our bodies are lacking, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental. Pineal glands, which is intimately attached to our brain control the daily rhythms of life, light and colors play a big role in controlling that rhythm. We live in a sea of energy where color is working within us. Sunlight, or full-spectrum light, holds all the wavelengths of color in the visible spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, and magenta) as well as infrared and ultraviolet light, which cannot be seen. Some of the tools used in color therapy are gemstones, candles, wands, prisms, colored fabrics, bath treatments, and colored eye wear. When light enters through the eyes (or the skin) it travels neurological pathways to pineal glands. It shines with in our divine self, and radiates upon us and traverses through our entire system. Different colors give off different wavelength frequencies and these different frequencies have different effects on physical and psychological functions. Research and observation has shown us that specific colors bring balance to our physical and emotional systems. Chromo therapy can easily be used as a system of alternative treatment to achieve the same results in unblocking meridians without the discomfort of needles used in acupuncture.
