Colour Healing

Color Healing, or Chromotherapy is an ancient art dating back to early Egyptian times and the Hindus have used colour and its’ healing benefits as part of their Ayurvedic medicine system since 1025AD  when Persian philosopher Avicenna completed his series of five books called The Canon of Medicine. The Canon of Medicine remained a medical authority for centuries. It set the standards for medicine in Medieval Europe and the Islamic world and was used as a standard medical textbook throughout the 18th century in Europe. It is still used today in Unani medicine, a form of traditional medicine practiced in India.

Avicenna (980-1037) saw colour as vitally important both in diagnosis and in treatment. He wrote that “colour is an observable symptom of disease” and he developed a chart that related colour to the temperature and physical condition of the body. His view was that red moved the blood, blue or white cooled it, and yellow reduced muscular pain and inflammation.

Chromotherapists use light in the form of colour to balance “energy” lacking from a person’s body, whether it be on physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental levels.

Each color has its own frequency vibration, and corresponds to a particular chakra (or energy center) in your body. Selecting and using the right color allows you to harness its frequency vibration, which in turn helps you to create your reality intentionally.

Everything in the universe is made up of light energy. Light energy moves at different frequencies, but the human eye is only capable of perceiving light in a frequency range of about 400nm-700nm (from red to violet). However, there are other animal species that are capable of perceiving even more frequencies and colors (for example, many birds and insects can see ultraviolet light, which is of a higher frequency than we can perceive).

Regardless of the range of color and frequency vibration that we are able to see, the ability to perceive different colors simply means that we have an innate ability to easily detect the vibration that we need and want. An easy way to help create your reality is through using colors that align with the vibrations of what you desire.

Colour theray can be as easy as painting your office wall yellow to promote communication, or wearing pink to bring calmness to your day.

We will looking into individual colours over the next few weeks on our Wild Medicines blog page.
