Color therapy is using light frequencies to induce healing. It may be as basic as wearing certain colored clothing, or wearing specific colored glasses to create a change in the person’s brainwave patterns.
Or it may be using progressive color therapy, which involves using several color modalities at the same time during treatment. We will be discussing the progressive color therapy, as that is my method of color therapy. However, an introduction of the history of color healing is a good place to start.
Atlantis, Lemuria, and ancient Egypt, India, China, are all cultures who understood color therapy and who used it in their healing practices.
In the 19th and 20th centuries there were people who used color therapy to treat the sick. Dr. Edwin Babbit from England in the 1800’s used color healing, by putting light directly on the body and he used water placed in colored bottles as elixirs for patients to drink. Dr. Dimhah Chadiali in the early 1900’s developed Spectro-Chrome, which applies various colors to specific areas of the body to create healing.
All of this work was lost when the American medical community turned its back on this research and banned color therapy devices. Today, the medical community is just starting to explore this area of healing, as well as other “alternative” healing modalities.
20 years ago, I completed my education in psychology, sociology, and spiritualism. I became an ordained minister and counselor, working with several community service organizations. Around this time I also became very interested in Shamanism, and alternative healing methods. Color therapy has been used by native healers for centuries. On earth, color is known for its healing properties.
Color in the environment has a subtle but definite impact upon the well being of a person. The colors in your clothes can affect how you feel in your day-to-day life. The colors of the furniture, and the colors in the rooms we place the furniture in impact us. Color is a frequency of light, just like tuning forks have specific colors associated with those frequencies.
The color therapist, just like sound therapists utilize specific colors to effect ones vibrational field of energy, to treat imbalances in the human form. Color therapy and sound therapy can align the spiritual essence of a person (chakra, meridians, organs).
The color or sound therapists see the client as a multidimensional person, who expresses him or herself physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Much of the benefits of a color therapy or sounding healing session depends on the client and how open they are to these frequencies.
I do all of my healings when possible inside of a healing vortex. A space created to facilitate the healing process. This healing space is set up with specific colored stones in a geometrical pattern that creates a vibrational field of energy that I call a healing space.
This, along with the various color and sound tools creates an opportunity for the client to truly heal themselves, I just assist the process enfoldment.
