Colour Energy & Colour Therapy

Color Energy and Color Therapy

Color, or colour as much of the world spells it, is well known to affect us in many ways. In the modern world it is commonly used to influence us in advertising, decorating, and dress. Color is also used for alternative healing to affect our personal energies and chakras and to stimulate those energies to heal.

Each color has its own light frequency or energy. Color therapy is when the vibrations of light is used to stimulate for healing. This can be done by using colored lights, colored crystals, color meditation, colors of environment and adornment, and other meansIn these writings here on color, the properties shown for each color are written in a sort of shorthand. Positive properties listed are properties where the color is said to enhance those properties or qualities. Negative properties listed are properties where the color is said to decrease or negate those properties. For ease of use with crystal healing, I have listed gemstones and minerals associated with each color. Keep in mind, however, that many gemstones and minerals come in and may be associated with more than one color.
