Part 1

Most of us will experience the sensation of feeling energized by wearing our favorite colour, soothed by gazing at blue water or uplifted by the sight of lush green grass.

The influence of colour over our mind, body, spirit and emotions provides the basis for colour healing. We experience colour when light is refracted through, or reflected by, an object at a certain frequency or wavelength.

Scientists believe that we each experience colour according to our own individual physical and psychological make-up -- what one person sees as bright red might be seen by another as, say, orange.

In colour therapy, practitioners believe that our experience of colour is a direct reflection of our state of health. This being the case, they then use colour to correct any imbalances in our well-being.

Colour affects everyone at an unconscious level, that is, below the awareness of normal everyday thought.

So politicians, businesses and advertisers have learned to manipulate the desired response by using the language of colour.

Careful use of colour can bypass the viewer's ability to discriminate or make instant critical judgments.
Part 3

Each colour has a set of clearly defined influences and meanings, which can be invaluable in understanding the world around us and our behavior patterns.

These qualities can also be used to create particular impressions on others. A desired image or a subtle message can be sent with colour much more effectively than with words.

Black is the energy of gestation and of preparation. Black has often been associated with the energies of the earth and the fertile soil. The rich earth from which all life and sustenance springs is the same earth where the dead are placed.

White is the energy of completion, an expanse outwards. White is uncompromising. Everything is clear, open and explicitly manifest. It has a cold quality. White can be of use when clarity is needed in life.

But it can also take on a hint of t the other colours around it and so acts like a mirror to the energies that are in proximity. This can make it a rather uncomfortable colour for those who do not wish to have their hidden feelings reflected back to them.

In a way, both white and black reflect the particular beliefs of the individual. White can be seen negatively as blankness, and positively as a clean slate, offering a new beginning.

In times of fear and uncertainty, black is a threatening unknown, a silence in which our own terror and nightmares can be amplified. But at other times, black may simply be experienced as a restful emptiness that allows many different possibilities to emerge and disappear again.

When there is a sense of thwarted ambition, restriction or being trapped by external circumstances, surround yourself with greens, or taking a walk in green gardens will restore equilibrium.

Lavender is a traditional remedy for insomnia or restlessness at night. It is also one of the most versatile essential oils for scratches, burns, headaches and worry. Dried lavender flowers beside the bed, or a drop of oil on the pillow, will encourage peaceful sleep.


In times of stress, or after a shock or a surprise, wearing shades of orange can help the body to return to a state of balance.


If you want to become inconspicuous, consider dressing in black. Black can be inconspicuous, or it can make a bold statement of mystery and self-control. Black clothes often say: 'notice my presence but don't intrude into my space'.


White has the ability to clear away all clutter, all extraneous noise. Fresh starts and new beginnings all benefit from its energy. Looking at a picture of snow-clad mountains brings clarity and freshness to a mind that feels crowded.
