The Power of Colour

Credit: Google Image

Every substance on earth contains colour and every colour has a different impact on us. The rays from the sun contain seven different colours - violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. These are natural colours which are highly beneficial to the maintenance of health and for healing diseases.

The colour wheel describes the relationship between colours. Primary Colours (red, yellow, and blue) are the base on which all other colours come from. When you mix two primary colours together, 50% of one primary colour and 50% of another primary colour you get a Secondary Colour (orange, violet, and green). A Tertiary Colour is created when you combine a primary colour with a secondary colour. This colour experience provides the opportunity to discover for yourself, the impact colours can have on your well-being. The need for a particular colour's vibration seems to differ from day to day. When you absorb a colour vibration it travels, via the nervous system, to the part of the body that needs it.

Jane Struthers wrote that we are all affected by the colours around us. We absorb the energy of each colour in our auras and through our skin. The energy of a particular colour is absorbed into our bodies, affecting all our cells, thus bringing about the healing process of the body.
