Color therapy is a powerful but gentle form of energy healing. It's easy, free, and absolutely glorious.
These particular energetic properties can carry strong therapeutic benefits for us energetically.
Some colors are healing for us over the long term, even over our lifetime. These colors are usually our "favorite colors." Some colors are just things that we need during a particular phase of our life. Or they're colors that we just need occasional "hits" of, like accent colors in a room.
Whether you use them short-term or long-term, as life-long colors or as accent colors, they can have a huge positive impact on your energy. You'll know because they make you feel good!
So color therapy isn't rocket science. Just notice what colors you like, what colors feel good to your eyes and your body. And then find ways to incorporate them into your life.
I also love to use the colors of nature. Right now, for example, I have two huge rhododendrons that are covered in lavender blooms. They create an enormous block of lavender, and I like to just go outside and stand in front of them and soak up the color. I wait for it every year -- it's like my yearly dose of lavender, and I need it! My body soaks it up hungrily.
Whenever you can, get a color with sunlight shining through it or reflecting off of it. For example, in early spring in the U.S. Pacific Northwest where I live, the vine maple trees leaf out, and standing under them with the sunlight streaming through is pure heaven. After the gray winter, the light yellowish green feels more nourishing to my energy than anything else I can think of.
In the fall, you can do the same thing with the leaves of trees that have turned red, orange and yellow. Just stand under them with the sun streaming through. Yum.
Another easy way to use color is through guided meditations.
Another way to play around with colors is to go to the store and buy a large box of crayons, one with lots of colors. Mess around with the colors. Which ones do you reach for first? Create some swaths of color with various crayons. How do you react to each color block?
However you use it, color is one of life's great gifts. Appreciate it, enjoy it, and use it to support your energetic health!
