I’ve been writing a lot about Holistic colors and why they should be in the home but today, I’d like to take it one step further and really dig deep into those Colors that cure.With the remainder of this year and all of 2016 I will be DIVING into colors that cure and heal. Again, the Holistic color posts.
Does color have magic powers? Well yes and no.
There’s no magic wand that you can use to make red cure your osteoporosis or that using turquoise will make you more confident HOWEVER using these colors WILL help on a sub conscious level. These colors are all about the chakras, the energy centers of our bodies.
Before we go any further, I am 2nd Level Certified in Reiki. That’s an entire subject in itself in a nutshell, I know a lot about the chakra, their colors and how those colors effect our mind and body. I’m not a Scientist by any means but this is all basic information that has been around for a really, really long time. Here is a cute website that goes into detail about the chakras if you’d like to read up on it. I refer to that one a lot because it’s easy to read and to understand.
Anyway, back to Color Cures. If you study how each and every one of those chakras work in our bodies, you’ll also come to know what happens when they are in balance and when they are off balance.
For instance. Our Root Chakra is red and is located at the base of our spine. Our root chakra is what grounds us and keeps our physical body safe, sound and strongly planted to the ground so to speak.
Now think about your body. What in your body does the same? What keep you upright and strong? Your bones. If you have problems with your Root Chakra, you’ll feel it in your bones and you may have osteoporosis. Taking it one step further, since red is the color of the root chakra, incorporate more red into your home, your wardrobe and even your food. All this, on both a physical and sub conscious level, effects your root chakra.
This goes for ALL the chakras and I’ll be talking about this in detail in 2016. These colors are the hues we should have in the home to heal us, make us happy and keep us in a “zen” way of living and thinking.
Think all this is silly? What do you feel when you look at a sunset? The gorgeous oranges, spicy hues, soft yellows and browns? Again, each one of those colors that I just mentioned are related to our chakras. For me, dusk is my favorite time of day. I love the spicy orange hues. What chakra is that? The Sacral Chakra (orange) and that is our sensuality and creative center. If you look at my graph above I mention fertility. Since your sacral chakra is for your pleasure zone, perhaps you need to work on your sexuality and see what’s going on it that department. If it’s off balance or blocked, fertility will be the result.
This is a big and very fascinating subject and one that I’ll keep writing about. I bet you can’t look at orange without thinking about, well, you know 😉
