The Secret Language of Color

by Inna Segal


For thousands of years people have used colors for healing, entertainment, to create beauty, to feel more radiant and alive. Colors are everywhere, in nature, our homes, our closets and our food.

Properties of Colors

Each color contains properties of temperature, weight and vibration. This means some colors create heat while others have a cooling effect. Experiments where a thermometer was put into a colored glass have demonstrated that red rays give off most heat while blue rays are coolest.

Healing With Colors

Every disease gives off a vibration, which has a color. When a complementary color is introduced into a diseased area, it interacts with the vibration of the disease and can produce relief. To be effective, color healing must treat the overall cause, not merely a symptom. Combining color healing with emotional clearing processes is extremely effective.

Colors can be used to help people heal in many ways, including: visualization, the clothes and shoes they wear, the food and drink they consume, home decoration, bedding, nature, working with plants or flowers, using crystals, essential oils, bath salts, lamps which emit a particular ray, lighting candles, wearing colored jewellery, painting, drawing, using make up, coloring hair and drinking water from a colored glass which has been in the sun.

Colors can also assist you to open your heart, increase your energy, boost your confidence, provide clarity, relieve stress and bring peace.

How Colors Can Help

To experience more peace and relaxation, wear blue and white or introduce more green plants into your environment. To open your heart to love you may wear orange and carry a pink crystal. To boost your energy wear red, orange or gold and eat red food. In order to increase your confidence wear turquoise jewelry and blue clothes. For improved sleep buy indigo-colored bed linen. Red and gold are outstanding for attracting prosperity into your life.
