These ancient civilizations built healing rooms with coloured crystals and when the sun shone, the crystals refracted the Sun’s light on the patient. Even in the west, medieval architects of churches and cathedral built the churches ceiling with coloured crystals. As Sun light shone through them, the people would be bathed in the different energy of the different colors. Similarly in the East, the Indian practice, Ayurveda, an ancient form of medicine practiced for thousands of years, is based on the idea that every individual contains five elements of the universe, which include: earth, water, air, fire, and ether (space). These elements are present in specific proportions unique to each individual, including their personality type and constitution. When these elements are out of balance, Ayurveda works with the energies inherent in the colors of the spectrum to restore this balance.
