My theory of color healing and why it works (in a nutshell)

Cross-posted from my Patreon page blog... 

Soon after I shared my previous Patreon post out there on the social media, I received this comment:
Wow, you aren't kidding about healing with color. I just looked at the picture, and I instantly felt a sense of relief! 
This astute reader gets it: The colors in the referenced photo (see link) are predominantly blues, purples, and some greens. These hues are all on the "cool" side of spectrum, which is known to be calming and soothing - especially in the quiet shades that I picked for the photo.

Which brings us to the question of how it works, and why - why would someone looking at a picture dominated by blues and purples experience such a quick and positive shift in mood? Now, whole books have been written on this topic, but I'm going to try to pare it down to the essentials. As I've always said (to myself, anyway) ~

It's all about vibration

Everything vibrates, because everything is made of energy. Einstein famously said, "matter exists where energy is condensed." Okay, that may not be an exact quote, but you get the idea - and the concept provides a lot of food for thought, at least on Internet physics forums :)
For our purposes, though, we can go ahead and assume that we - our bodies, including mind and spirit - vibrate. So does everything around us, including the colors we surround ourselves with. And vibrations align with what's near them - it's called resonance. It was noted over 350 years ago that movements of clock pendulums, hanging near each other on the same wall, will eventually come into alignment - or, resonance. That little observation has intrigued scientists ever since, and we're finally getting some answers on it!

Now, because we resonate with our surroundings, we can consciously bring into our field certain vibrations that evoke qualities we want. Just like the pendulum clocks - well, ok, that's an over-simplification but it still works as a metaphor - we will begin to resonate with the healing vibration we've evoked. That, in a nutshell, is the basis of all vibrational healing, and it works with qualities as varied as sound, minerals, Chinese or Ayurvedic elements, herbs, flower essences, and ... color.

Color is a vibration

Even in the world of physics, color vibrates - it has a wavelength and everything. As an element of vibrational healing, color offers qualities that soothe, energize, regenerate, and more. Color healing also delves into associations with other levels of our energy fields, ie. elements in Chinese medicine or depths in Jin Shin Jyutsu. And, it's easy to surround yourself with a chosen color: You can wear it, put it on your wall,or  even set it in your computer's screen saver!

That, my friends, is a very brief look at how and why healing with color works! The next question is, why do I choose the colors I do for the qualities I want to evoke - such as Round 2's blue and purple for Protection and Wisdom. Well, that's a question for a future post - which will be visible to Patrons only.
