Colours

"Some blind people can tell you what colour something is by holding their hand just above it."

"Some of you might not believe me but it is most definitely true. "

"The way they do it, is by feeling the vibration that comes from the colour."

Colours vibrate at different frequencies and just because, under normal circumstances, we have not developed our senses enough to feel them, doesn't mean it isn’t so. 

Colours affect us whether we like it or not and so we would do well to be careful in what we choose to use, and how much of it where.   

Colour has been used in healing in different cultures over thousands of years. Colours in light, in crystals, and in decoration.  

Some bits and pieces to whet your appetite. 

Crystals 

Feng Shui meaning wind and water conveys the ancient Chinese principle of harmonizing humans and nature to bring about health and prosperity. They suggest hanging clear crystals in a window to infuse the room with healthy ‘chi’

 

Crystal healing is a huge area and we're not even going to try to cover the basics, but here, just for interest are some relationships between chakras, colours, elements, physical senses, aspects and crystals.

Each chakra from the base upward is linked to the colours of the rainbow

There is no definitive table this comes from The book of Crystal Healing by Liz Simpson

 

Starsigns

In Feng Shui each individual is considered to be influenced by the heavens and the earth. They take astrological data into account to help identify precise directions and orientations which will be most favorable. This is a serious science

We tell you this merely to justify another little venture into the world of colour associations. This is just for fun, and food for thought.
