Color Therapy

Article by Ananya Sen

Everyone is curious about colors, the healing properties of them, how to enhance your healing abilities with color, what is the significance of colors if used in healing. Colors have a certain frequency, they are afterall light energy. Each color helps in healing certain kinds of ailments or situations in our lives. Our bodies are essentially made up of light. You may heard of the term ‘Light Body Activation’. This basically means activating all the color vibrations in our bodies.

Our chakras have seven colors which are the same as the colors of the rainbow VIBGYOR. Each chakra draws its energy from the color spectrum in the universe. Let’s look at the significance of all the seven colors and other colors as well.

  1. Violet – this is the purest color, color of the crown chakra. You can use violet color or the Violet flame to purge and transmute impurities and karma.
  2. Indigo – this is bluish purple color. You can use this color to open your third eye, enhance your psychic abilities and even for protection. This is the color of Archangel Michael as well, so it has natural shielding properties.
  3. Blue – this is the color of your throat chakra, you can use this for effective communication with someone and call upon Archangels Gabriel and Michael. Blue, also can be used to heal court cases and legal problems.
  4. Green – this is the heart chakra color. It is Archangel Raphael’s color, so can bring in physical or emotional healing to everyone. Use green to bring in money and luck in your life!
  5. Yellow – color of solar plexus chakra. Use this color for career success, improve digestion and increase personal power.
  6. Orange – this is the color of your sacral chakra. You can use orange to enhance your creativity, clear blocks from your sacral chakra and have smooth relationships with the opposite sex.
  7. Red – this is the root chakra color. Use red to bring passion into your love life, improve sexual performance and for personal power. You can also use red if you want action or movement in your life. Red removes stagnancy.
  8. Pink – you can use pink to get true love in your life, attract your soulmate and anything that you have compassion for. It could also be used to heal animals apart from green.

  9. Black – this is a powerful color. Use this to ward off evil, psychic protection and removing unwanted people from your life.
  10. Brown – this can be used for financial stability, protect your investments, home etc. It has a neutralizing effect. Brown balances anything that has excess. You can also use brown for Grounding.

Now, when I say ‘use’ these colors, these are some of the ways to use them. Your can wear these colors when you want energy in a particular situation in your life. For instance, if you have a court case that you want to win, you can wear blue on that day or any day when you’re meeting your lawyer and discussing legal issues. You will just have to be mindful as to why you’re wearing that particular color.

If your boss or mother in law is troubling you, you can wear black or put a black shield between you both, so that your auras remain separate. To heal specific situations, you can use crystals or candles of these colors. If you don’t want to use any of these above techniques, simply visualize these colors coming out of your hands as beams and going to the person or situation. Hope this is helpful!

    A quick reminder of the rainbow/chakra colour sequence my husband learnt as a child in the 1950’s is
    Richard Of York Gained Battle In Vain – ROYGBIV which is very apt as King Richard III’s battle referred to was in Bosworth, Leicestershire. His bones were recently found a mile from us in Leicester City centre and in 2015 will be re-interred in Leicester Cathedral

    The article was really a nice read and would definitely help us in practising Reiki with colors, apart from VIBGYOR, the use of colors Pink, Black and Brown were really informative.
