Colour Healing the use of Colour in Healing
Session 8 (11-11-03 )

We will open this circle with a prayer. I ask that the Creator surround each of us with a white light of protection, and that each of us will be blessed with the enlightenment we seek. So mote it be.
In the next few circles we will be covering Colour Healing, of several kinds and the many ways it can be applied. Those of you who are interested in channelling healing energy to others will find this information valuable. And those of you who are interested in using colour for self-healing will learn new ways to apply colour in your lives.

I’d like to open the Healing Circle tonight with a quote from Pythagoras (585-495 B.C.) “When the magical power of sound and colour are rediscovered and directed to specific purposes, there will be energies of a higher dimension transcending those unleashed by the atom today."
Before we go any further I am going to give you a brief, simple rundown of what is known scientifically about light today, to put into perspective just what we are dealing with here. Light is one particular type of electromagnetic radiation, there are many others. Each type of radiation is distinguished by its wavelength, or frequency. We are surrounded by electromagnetic waves of energy of which colour is just a small part.
The colours - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, all emanate from the sun. Colour is simply light of different wavelengths and frequencies and light is just one form of energy made up from photons. The visible spectrum as we see it consists of the rainbow.
Our retinas have three types of colour receptors in the form of cones. We can only detect three of these colours - red - blue and green. It is these three colours that are mixed to create the other colours we see. The wavelength and frequency of the light we see, depends upon the colour we see.
The seven colours of the spectrum all have varying wavelengths and frequencies. Red is at the lower end of the spectrum and has a higher wavelength but lower frequency to that of Violet at the top end of the spectrum, which has a lower wavelength and higher frequency.
Our ancestors spent a good deal of their time working outdoors in natural light, but gradually this all began to change as ways of bringing light into their dwelling places evolved. Now we spend most of our time in closed quarters, our homes, offices, malls, cars, factories, etc. Our children are placed in schools for most of their daytime hours; and we all are living with fluorescent or incandescent lighting, which is a poor substitute for natural light. We apply sunscreen to our skin and wear sunglasses to protect our eyes from the very light that our body requires. “Sunning” ourselves on the beaches has been substituted by tanning beds. (I won’t go into the hole in the ozone layer here.) lol We have come to live an unnatural lifestyle that we are not made for, in artificial surroundings, and we are paying a price on many levels for the choices we have made.
Sunlight is needed for the production of Vitamin D in our skin and the metabolism of calcium; the amount of calcium in the system regulates not only our bones, but also our nerves and the thinking process. Recently SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) (a form of depression) has been discovered to affect many during the winter months when we function with even less of the needed daylight.
Colour has profound effect on us on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It affects our moods - blue is calming - red can make us tense. We use it everyday in our lives without giving it much thought. The rays that we are able to detect become visible when a prism is placed in the path of sunlight. As the light passes through the prism, it is split into the seven visible colours of the spectrum by refraction.
This refracted light is the perfect image of the Rainbow. I see this rainbow as a mirror reflection
of our own inner beauty, our inner light. Because colour has such a profound effect on us on all levels, if our energy centres become blocked or depleted then our body cannot function properly.

Each of the seven colours, resonates with one of the main seven chakra's of the body. Each colour having its own particular energy. These chakra's are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the other. If you can imagine the chakra's/energy centres as a set of wheels, they are rather like the workings of a clock; the wheels need to move smoothly and at a similar speed for the clock/chakra to work properly.
Good health and well-being is achieved by a balance of all these energies colour healing can help to re balance these 'wheels' by applying the appropriate colour to the body and therefore re balance our chakra's. The eyes, skin and skull absorb colour. Every cell in the body needs light energy - thus colour energy has widespread affects on the whole body.

Colour Healing can be helpful for any problem whether, physical, mental, emotional or spiritual and as a relaxation therapy. Colour treatments can be applied to the body in a number of different ways. Some examples of the various methods used are visualization, colour breathing, solarized water, placing of colour silks on the body, and directing coloured light on to the body, and last but not least is multidimensional colour healing, which is a favourite of mine that I intend to get into in another Circle.
COLOURED SILKS
One of the most popular ways of applying colour directly to the body is to use coloured silks. These are used to place directly onto the body. Coloured silks used, should be dyed with natural dyes and made from pure silk. Any natural fabric i.e. cotton, can be used where pure silk is not appropriate. For instance, when treating animals with colour.
SOLARISED WATER
Solarized water is a cheap way of applying colour to the body. Using a clear glass of whatever colour needed, or a glass with a colour filter held in place with an elastic band. Fill the glass with fresh pure water cover the glass with a piece of gauze or muslin and allow it to sit in the sunlight on a south wall sill.
A colour filter can be made of cellophane or acetate. Depending upon how strong the sun is, in summer the process of light absorption should only take a couple of hours but in winter it may be necessary to leave the glass there all day. Then store the container with a lid on in the refrigerator. The solarized water will last up to 5 days. It can be sipped or used to even bathe affected areas - or both.
And remember that the red, orange and yellow are inclined to be stimulating, so do not drink these too late in the day as it may keep you awake at night. The blue, indigo and violet are calming, so it is best to drink these in the latter half of the day. Oils can also be energized using a similar method; can be use for massage, not drunk!
LIGHT BOX
A light box using full spectrum (natural daylight) bulbs when used with the appropriate coloured filter, is another way of giving coloured light treatment to the body. Light is energy. Using a light box with a filter of the required colour is a very effective way of applying colour to the body. You may have heard about S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder), the light box can also be used for treating S.A.D. The light produced is full spectrum light and is the closest you can get to natural daylight.
COLOUR CARDS
Colour cards are cards with coloured shapes or circles and are easy to make. These can be helpful for absorbing colour if you are a beginner and have not yet mastered visualization, because they give you something to focus on. All you need to do is choose the colour you want and concentrate on that colour for about 10 minutes, follow up with the complimentary colour for 5 min's. Repeat until you feel you have had enough. You can't overdose on colour. But do remember to use the complementary colour for balance.
Complementary colours are the colours "opposite" each other on the colour wheel. Although "opposite" each other, they are used together in colour therapy to give balance. We need the balance of the electric/cool colours and the magnetic/warm colours for our well being and smooth functioning of our bodies.
VISUALIZATION
Visualizing colour is easy with a little practice. If we can visualize the colour we need, we can access this colour and it's healing energy at any time. Visualize yourself wherever you feel safe and relaxed, whether that is in nature, or by the sea. If you can do this outside all the better, and, weather permitting, try to stand on grass with bare feet. Stand with feet slightly apart and arms by your side and relax. It is fine if you prefer to lie down or sit. Relax the shoulders, and concentrate on your breathing.
Wherever, you choose for your safe haven - visualize the colour you want to work with and, still being conscious of your breathing, absorb that colour. Relax the shoulders, and concentrate on your breathing, then hold you’re in breath for a few moments while the colour fills your body. Then breath out all stress, pain and turmoil. Repeat this several times.
COLOUR BREATHING
I like to think of this exercise as breathing in the rainbow. This has several functions. It will sharpen your visualization skills, and bring the colour energies and their healing properties into your body. Breathing is very important, yet many don’t think about it we just take it for granted. However, shallow breathing can cause feeling of fatigue, dizziness, and stress due to insufficient oxygen. Since approximately 90% of our energy is created by oxygen and nearly all the body's actions are regulated by it - it is rather important that we get enough of it!!
There are a number of breathing techniques, which are taught by practitioners of different disciplines. Stand with feet slightly apart and arms by your side, relaxed. Relax the shoulders, and concentrate on your breathing, consciously relaxing all of your body from the top of your head to your toes. Breathe deeply in through the nose, holding for a few moments and then breath out through the mouth.
First breath in the colour red imagine it rising up through your whole body giving you strength and courage as you breathe in and experience the colour filling your body. Allow the colour to travel up through the body and out of the top of the head and then back down again to the earth. Repeat with orange, then yellow. These first three colours are absorbed from the earth. Then green. This colour is absorbed through the solar plexus, let it fill your body and let it leave through the back. Then blue which is absorbed from the sky, through the top of the head and out again going back up to the sky, similarly with the indigo and violet.
If this exercise is done daily, you will really notice how your colour awareness develops and you will be able to visualize the colours much more strongly as you do this exercise regularly, balancing and enhancing your body's energies.
Psychological And Therapeutic Effects Of Colours
Each individual illness or disease has a unique frequency of its own and manifests itself differently in each person,
Depending upon their constitution and life’s ‘energetic” experiences.
Psychological and therapeutic effects of colours:

Red is the symbol of love and anger and of life itself; with its penetration power, which is the highest of all colours;

It is recommended for treatment of impeded circulation, muscles and heart. It generates enthusiasm, arouses passion and has a cheering effect.

Orange symbolizes joy and happiness and helps raise the spirit; hence it is recommended for cases involving depression and fear.

It promotes a healthy appetite and increases the sex drive. It is used for hormonal cleansing and in menstrual difficulties. It’s a bright, warm source of encouragement for all aspects of life.

Yellow is a clear purifying colour, which stimulates clarity of intellect, as well as toxin processing and elimination.

It can help with learning disabilities and with strengthening of the endocrine functions.

Green is a cooling, sedating colour, which helps reduce swelling of joints and tissues; it calms the body and helps reduce inflammation.

It’s the colour of the relaxed heart.

Turquoise is the colour for mental relaxation and tackling embedded psychological barriers.

It acts as a tonifier and can help regulate imbalances in the lung-large intestine system. It is a colour that facilitates spiritual growth.

Blue is a cool colour that has a claming effect, inside as well as on the outside.

It is very helpful in treating sleep disorders and headaches, yet also regulates elastic tissues in the organism. It helps in all kinds of cramps and can have an anti-bacterial effect.

Violet promotes awareness and consciousness. It increases effects of meditation.

It promotes proper functioning of the lymphatic system and is a very helpful in times of menopause. It is the colour for neutralizing emotional wounds and for spiritual growth.

 

G: Are there any questions or comments?
M: Yes, I learned a lot then, so many people get put off meditating and things because they think it’s a long process. I like the way you teach it, very helpful thanks.
M: Are you going to put this in the Archives?
G: Yes they will be placed in the Archives, along with the list of colours and uses.
M: I didn’t understand how to filter the colour.
G: The filter is like a screen that the sunlight can flow through it can be made of coloured cellophane or acetate and just wrapped around the glass and fastened with an elastic band. The energy comes from the colour.
G2: Can I ask you to point out about green? That any one that is suffering with a tumour of any form of cancer should not use it.
M: Contra indications?
G2: While green is a good colour for healing, it does encourage growth. So any tumour or cancer cells multiply.
G: Before we close the circle I ask that we visualize each of us coming together and forming a circle of light. We are going to send out healing energy to those who have requested healing.
Lets us reach down deep within ourselves and connect with and bring forth all the love and light that dwells there. Now we will combine with this the healing energy available to us from within the universe. Visualize Rainbow Rays of light passing through you, Now we will project these rays to the one who have requested healing at this time. As requested these names are: Cher and her sister, Dee, Dae, Sue, Mel, Angel, Ella, Kathy, Sue, Ola & Geena. Please visualize these people in the centre of the circle and see the rainbow rays flowing through each one of them
Knowing that each person will receive exactly what he or she need…. So mote it be.
Before we close I think we should visualize any stray energy being drawn back into the circle and send it to the person directly in front of you
The Circle Is Now Closed
