Everything in the known Universe is energy, the mysterious power that holds atoms together, makes trees grow, keeps your heart beating and the Earth spinning through space. This energy vibrates at different speeds, or wavelengths. Matter may be understood to be very slow-moving energy relative to, say, sunlight. We can use the electromagnetic spectrum, a chart of all the types of energy science has measured, to better understand this concept. X-rays, radio waves, microwaves, and television transmissions are all to be found on the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as visible light, within which we find the seven colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. All of these energy forms have characteristic frequencies at which they vibrate.
If you tune your radio to a frequency of, say, 102.5, you’ll always get the same station. The station sends out its programming at a particular frequency; your receiver transforms the radio waves into audible sound waves. One form of energy is transmuted into another form.
Colorology: the Science of Color is based on the same principle. Each of the seven colors vibrate at a characteristic frequency; anything you can see (visible light) must also be vibrating at one of those frequencies. Our physical bodies “tune in to” — or receive and resonate in a particular way — each of the seven colors of the rainbow. Sunlight contains all of those frequencies and more (ultraviolet rays, cosmic rays, etc.)
How do our bodies “tune in” to these frequencies? We all have seven major endocrine glands in our bodies, which regulate the functioning of bodily systems (circulation, reproduction, respiration and so forth) by secreting complex chemicals called hormones. Hormones act to stimulate or depress bodily activities as necessary to maintain a state of dynamic balance that we experience as “good health.” As a result of excessive or insufficient amounts of hormones, physical, mental and/or emotional imbalance (dis-ease) can occur.
Each of these seven endocrine glands, being a visible energy form, is vibrating at the frequency of one of the colors of the rainbow (red – ovaries or testes; orange – spleen and pancreas; yellow – adrenals; green – thymus; blue – thyroid, indigo – pituitary; violet-pineal). We can, therefore, by various methods expose our bodies to these colors and literally, physically affect the vibratory rate of the endocrine glands, which in turn affects the rate of hormone secretion, and thus the functioning of the organs. Various areas of the brain vibrate at different frequencies, as well; therefore, emotional and mental states are also influenced.
Children, the elderly, anyone in poor health, and current or recovering substance abusers (all of whom may be in a state of energy imbalance) are usually overly sensitive to the effects of color; its use should, therefore, be carefully monitored with these groups.
Using Color Practically
It’s usually best to start by balancing the body using all the colors; then, once you know what system (color) is out of balance, you can work more extensively on that particular area, either stimulating the energy with that system’s color, or by suppressing the energy with the complementary color. When balancing the body, always start at the base of the spine (red, the “root” chakra/energy center) and work your way up the torso to the top of the head (violet, the “crown” chakra). The body more easily adjusts and accepts the energy if the frequencies progress from longer to shorter wavelengths (“slower to faster”).
There are a number of simple, inexpensive and effective ways to intentionally employ color: Visualization, Solarized water, Color breathing, Clothing, Decor, Food, Education.
Color affects everything you do in your life. We are constantly affected and influenced by color, consciously and unconsciously, physically and emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Conscious and intentional employment of color in our lives enables us to expand our well-being on many levels. This is truly empowering information!
