Life is unimaginable without colours. The nature has showered its bounty with so many colours. Have you ever wondered over the colour combination of flowers and butterflies and more? They are so vibrant and perfect. The moment we leave our normal environment and travel to a new landscape, the first thing we will notice will be differences in the colours and textures.
Colour is synonymous with joy and with life. It also reflects our love for life and is a symbol for our emotions. When we begin to awaken our senses to the beauty, mystery and profound qualities of colour, we become sensitive to it’s healing properties. Colour is light, and light is life.
Modern physics is discovering what many religions and traditional sciences have understood for thousands of years – that everything in the universe is in a sense composed of energy that vibrates at different rates of frequency, so that some of it seems more etheric and some more solid.
The Kirlian photography has been able to prove the electro-magnetic field that surrounds the body. This is known as the aura or auric field. The electro-magnetic energy system has traditionally been analysed to reveal how colour affects us and we can use to heal.
Aura and Chakras
The aura consists of seven major chakra. Each of the chakra represents one of the seven layers of the aura known as ‘seven bodies’. Thus chakras are the subtle vortex points or power centres. They are aligned vertically through the centre of the body near the spine. The chakra is a Sanskrit word means ‘wheel of light ‘. Each chakra absorbs vital life force from its own colour or ‘ray’. The seven chakras has colours like – Root chakra (red), Sacral chakra (orange), Solar plexus chakra (yellow), Heart chakra (green), Throat chakra (blue), Brow chakra (indigo) and Crown chakra (violet).
It is said that when there is lack of certain colour energy in the aura, people start getting attracted to that colour, especially if they are more sensitive and intuitive. They listen to the signals of the aura and consciously begin to use colour when they are undergoing deep physical, or psychological changes. We often see people who are going through changes and adjustments in life are actually able to absorb unconsciously the influence of the very colours that they need for the situation and the emotions in question.
