In the physical world, light is
a crucial nutrient, which feeds the evolution of all life. Our bodies
need water, vitamins minerals, amino acids, and enzymes. The human
body, its cells, mitochondria and DNA, also needs specific color
wavelengths of light. These healing color waves energize and balance
all vital functions of the human being.
Our bodies have been designed to be
self-renewing and self-healing. The body however has to be maintained,
and if any one organ is overtaxed, our bodies run out of replenishing
material and cannot cope with the overload. Color Healing, also known
as Vibrational Healing, uses the different frequencies of light to
inject energy into the Aura's energy centers (Chakras) and the Auric
Field. This acts like a vitamin for the energy fields of the body and
can speed healing, promote general wellness, and your physical and
emotional well-being. The latest biophysical research confirms that we
do not only consist of matter but also as an energy body, which
actually consists, up to a certain degree, of visible light.
is defined as light moving at various speeds. The brain converts that
information through our eyes into what we see as color. Today we know
that there is a direct connection between light, sound and color and
that the natural frequencies produced by light and sound correspond to
various organs, endocrine glands and even our mental or emotional
Because the vibrational frequencies of light and sound are related to
the organs and cells, it can be understood that color vibrations
perceived by the eye or sound vibrations received by the body will
also have a profound effect on the organs and cells.
Visible Light Spectrum
The use of Color as a Therapy is a truly holistic,
non-invasive and powerful therapy which dates back thousands of years;
evidence of this can be found in ancient texts from India, China and
human body absorbs color wavelengths that occur in the visible
light spectrum. Each color in the spectrum has a
frequency, wavelength and energy associated with it. The
colors we absorb can have an effect on the nervous system, the
endocrine system and subsequently on the release of hormones
and other organic substances within the human body. They can
also have an effect on the more subtle energies of the chakra
system. This can profoundly affect our mental, emotional,
psychological and physical states of health.
The symptoms of
disease are a sign that there is a shortage of, or improper
utilization of color and light in the cells and organs of the
human body. This may be due to factors such as our lifestyle,
our environment, stress or too much, or too little of a
particular color frequency in our energy system. This
imbalance can be corrected by the selective use of color
frequencies. The forms by which the frequencies of color can
be transmitted to the body are numerous.
What are the benefits of using Color Vibrations for healing?
light consists of twelve major color energies:
Each color is connected to various areas of our body and will
affect us differently emotionally, physically, and mentally. By
learning how each color influences us, we can effectively use
color to transcend energy blockages.
Each color provokes
a different sensation in humans. Some are perceived as cold, others as
warm. The colors which oppose each other in the circle are called
complementary colors. The history of the use of color goes back over
5,000 years. Various color therapies were used by many cultures,
including the ancient Egyptians, Ayurvedics, Chinese, Native
Americans, and Tibetans. It is interesting to note that in the ancient
Chinese medical systems, as well as in modern healing modalities, the
twelve major color wavelengths are directly correlated with the body's
twelve meridians or bio-electrical pathways.
Chakras are electrical energy centers which are created by the
endocrine glands and the nerve centers in the body. The word Chakra
comes from the Sanskrit language meaning a revolving wheel or vortex
of energy. These spiraling vortices of life energy consist of two
electrical currents. The ida and pingala energies rise up through each
leg and criss-cross each other up through the body. Where these
currents cross, the seven major Chakras are found. This energy flows
from each Chakra, through the body and circles back along the
electrical pathways of the acupuncture meridians.
the physical level each Chakra is connected to: a nerve center, one of
the seven senses, and one of the seven endocrine glands. The seven
colors and the seven major musical notes also vibrate with the Chakras.
The lower Chakras correspond to the physical elements. The three
higher Chakras correspond to the non-physical elements.
etheric light body of energy is much like an electronic grid map
surrounding the physical body. Its function is to receive and then
transmit this energy and information directly into various energy
centers throughout the body, which in turn activates flow through the
acupuncture meridans to stimulate every organ and structure in the
body. This is why any physical dis-ease we experience will manifest in
our auric field first.
Chakras reflect our consciousness. Vitalizing
these energy centers will bring about a more radiant well-being,
heightened mental awareness and an unfolding awakening to the

When imbalances have occurred, it is then that we may use color
therapy or sound therapy as tools to help rebalance and restore
ourselves. Color therapy is very simple. It works on the same
principle as tuning in to a television frequency. Each chakra has a
specific wavelength and vibrational rate, and governs a specific area
of the body. By working with the appropriate color and or sound
frequency whose wavelength corresponds to the chakra needing help, the
weakened wavelength is reinforced. This will help set in motion the
regenerative and healing process of that chakra or related body cell.
This brings the body's energy fields into balance.

Healing with Color Therapies
life on earth depends on light from the Sun, the source of life and
energy. Light is the masculine or positive force in nature, color is
the feminine or negative force. Color is defined as light moving at
varying vibrational rates. The brain interprets these various light
wave frequencies as color. Each major organ correlates
bio-energetically to 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. Color can help to restore balance when a blockage
or imbalance of this energy has resulted in disease.
Click here to learn about the healing effects of some of these color energies and how they relate to organs and body systems
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.
Color healing is not only a physical, but also a spiritual force and
thus forms a link between our physical bodies and the forces of
vibrational energies, higher levels of consciousness and spiritual
growth. Color is the bridge between our inner and outer bodies. The
vibrations of color are energies of Life-Force itself and are here to
aid us in our growth and progress toward the oneness which is our

is encouraged by directing colored light towards diseased areas of the
body or to the eyes. In conventional medical treatment, phototherapy
and photochemotherapy are used in current dermatological practice e.g.
in the treatment of psoriasis, and blue light has been shown to be
effective in the treatment of hyperbiliruminemia in the newborn.

the psychological effects of color and Dr Max Luscher's The Luscher Color Test
contains ample evidence of this (be advised that many of the

medical practice, the use of blue light in the treatment of
hyperbilirubinemia has been proven by many researchers including
Vreman et al with their study "Light-emitting diodes: a novel light
source for phototherapy". Creamer and McGregor of St John's Institute
of Dermatology, London. UK published a paper in January 1998 entitled
"Photo (chemo) therapy: advances for systemic or cutaneous disease",
exploring the value of light as a treatment. Griffiths of the
University of Manchester, UK, in July 1998, published a paper on
"Novel therapeutic approaches to psoriasis" and in October 1998, The
Archives of General Psychiatry ran four articles on light therapy.
Regrettably, where treatment of a broader spectrum of disorders is
concerned, the evidence is largely anecdotal.
Research in the agricultural field lends support to the potential for
color as a therapy in humans as the following examples show:
In 1997 researchers at the School of Agriculture and Forest Science at
the University of Wales, UK used red and blue light to establish
whether these would increase activity and reduce locomotion disorders
in meat chickens. They showed that in 108 chicks walking, standing,
aggression and wing stretching all increased in intensity when reared
from day 1-35 in red light. Where blue light was used, there was a
high incidence of gait abnormalities. Prayitno DS., Phillips CJ and
Stokes DK. 1997. The effects of color and intensity of light on
behaviour and leg disorders in broiler chickens. Poultry Science
Michael Kasperbauer, a researcher at the US Agricultural Research
Service Center in Florence, South Carolina, showed that using red
plastic sheeting under tomato and cotton plants produced a 15-20%
higher yield than plants grown over traditional black or clear
plastic. Also turnips grown under blue plastic had an improved flavour
when compared with those grown under green sheets. Analysis of those
grown under the blue plastic revealed that they had higher
concentrations of glucocinolates and vitamin C (glucosinolates being
the compounds which give turnips and horseradish their traditional
"bite"). Kasperbauer and his team have also investigated the link
between color and pest control. Michael Orzolek of Pennsylvania State
University proved that aphids and the plant viruses they transmit are
generally attracted to yellow and repelled by red and blue. This
finding echoes the work of Babbitt a century earlier when he wrote
"The electrical colors which are transmitted by blue glass often
destroy the insects which feed upon plants." Boyce N. Rainbow

could focus on the clinical efficacy of color therapy and, the
neurobiological mechanism of action. Extensive anecdotal evidence of
the value of color therapy in the treatment of countless physical
disorders over many decades deserves to be revisited. However, this
evidence needs to be subjected to rigorous scientific research in
order to establish (or otherwise) a sound basis for color therapy.
Developing instruments for applying color could provide a commercial
incentive for clinical trials.
