Color Psychology and Chromotherapy

Color is a language of the soul. Utilizing placement of colors in your modern home is a way of cultivating a balanced environment.

Color psychology is the study of hues as a determinant for human behavior and emotion. In branding, marketing, and home decor, the use of color will create and communicate both mood and meaning. Light and color exert influence automatically, and determine how people perceive the area around them.

Chromotherapy is a narrow band in the cosmic electromagnetic energy spectrum, known to humankind as the visible color spectrum. It is composed of reds, greens, blues and their combined derivatives, producing the perceivable colors that fall between the ultraviolet and the infrared ranges of energy or vibrations. These visual colors with their unique wavelength and oscillations, provide the necessary healing energy required by the body.

Chromotherapy provides colors to the electromagnetic body or the aura (energy field) around the body, which in turn transfers energy to the physical body. This makes chromotherapy the most effective among various therapies. According to ancient Egyptian mythology, the art of chromotherapy was discovered by the god Thoth. In the hermetic traditions, the ancient Egyptians and Greeks used colored minerals, stones, crystals, salves and dyes as remedies and painted treatment sanctuaries in various shades of colors.

Every color, each with its own frequency, is a form of energy. Behold the vast and beautiful spectrum of colors in these modern homes below!

How do you utilize the impact of color in your modern home? What are your favorite shades, and what effects have you noticed in your internal and external environment?

 

Chromotherapy: Blue Dreams

Blue shades are both tranquil and electric. “The Blue Ray is one of the greatest antiseptics in the world,” stated Dr. Edwin Babbitt, in his classic, “The Principles of Light and Color.” 

Blue is the “peace that surpasses all understanding,” being protective, benevolent, gentle, and cooling. It governs our higher psychic activities, insight, wisdom, and assists us in navigating deep changes. In blue we feel a resonant sense of unity and clarity. Blue relates to self-expression through speech and communication, and is the very essence of truth and purpose.

With the ability to sooth emotional conditions, promote meditation, invoke spiritual expansion, and relax the body, blues are the epitome of serenity.

The  T h r o a t  Chakra

The fifth chakra, Vishuddha, is associated with the element ether, and is the first of the three spiritual chakras representative of higher truth. It governs the anatomical regions of the thyroid, parathyroid, jaw, neck, mouth, tongue, and larynx.

To remain open and aligned in the fifth chakra, one must always both listen and speak from a higher form of communication. Known as the center of purification, Vishuddha is where we are able to transform energy into our manifestations on the physical plane.

Sitting beneath the blue sky in open space, particularly in higher altitudes, is an ideal way to come to balance in this energy center.

Halasana
Halasana

Yogic postures that benefit the Vishuddha Chakra are Halasana (Plow Pose, as shown above), Ustrasana (Camel Pose), Chakrasana (Wheel Pose), Matsyasana (Fish Pose), Salamba Sarvangasana (Supported Shoulder Stand), and the Ujjayi Pranayama.

Pranayama is a yogic breathing technique, and there are many variations. Begin with Ujjayi. Concentrating on the throat, inhale and exhale deeply through the nose for 5-10 minutes while gently contracting the throat. The breath should sound slightly raspy, like that of the sound in deep sleep. Direct your attention completely to the sound of the breath in the throat. This way of breathing quietens the mind and balances the emotions.

Chromotherapy: Melting into Yellow

Luscious lemons, ambient ambers, sensual saffrons, to grandiose golds, the glorious gradients of yellow will kindle your mind, body, and soul with vitality, confidence, and clarity.

Illuminating shades of yellow stimulate your memory and nervous system, sharpening your senses and sparking intellect. Giving us a lust for life and boldly stating “here I am”, yellow encourages the well being of our psychic center, the solar plexus. A color with a wealth of warmth, yellow can ease and promote fluidity in communication by unfurling inspiration for the written and spoken word.

M a n i p u r aManipura Mandala

Photograph courtesy of About Español

Radiate the power of your psychic center, a golden glowing star at your solar plexus. Igniting our expression of will and psychic abilities, the energy center of Manipura is mobilized when we assert ourselves into the world.  Assume full responsibility for your life by taking charge of your thoughts, which govern our decisions and shape the reality that we exist in. A balanced third chakra allows us to formulate clear opinions and beliefs with accountability, clarity of personal identity, the fluidity of navigating decisions with wisdom, and setting the clearest course on the path to your future.

Manipura, translated from Sanskrit as “city of jewels,” is connected to the element fire, and is closely tied to dancing, laughing, and physical interaction with others. With a strong connection to solar energy, time walking beneath the sun or sitting near to a flame can greatly influence the health and prosperity of this energy center.

Cedarwood, Rosemary, Chamomile, and Bergamot in the form of essential oils and herbal teas are exceptional aids in nurturing your solar plexus energy center.

Closely connected to the digestive system, namely the gastric and hypogastric plexi, your solar plexus energy center governs your body’s ability to transform matter into energy. Closely associated with the pancreas, controlling your metabolic functions.

Bananas, yellow peppers, yellow squash, lemons, pineapple, corn, and fibrous foods like yellow lentils, flaxseed, brown rice, nuts, seeds, are imperative to balancing your Manipura chakra.

Yoga postures that greatly benefit the Manipura chakra are Ardha Matsyendrasana (half lord of the fishes pose, as pictured above), Dhanurasana (bow pose), Parvritta Trikonasana (revolved triangle pose), and Bhujangasana (cobra pose). A daily yoga practic complete with postures, pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation, will ensure a positive outcome of your entire body and mind.

Svadhisthana

Orange is the essence of our sacral chakra, Svadhisthana, which is translated as “the dwelling place of the self,” and is the energy center of our creativity and sexual empowerment. Governing the emotional and sensual aspects of life, it helps us to find our own voice and pleasure center in life. Svadhisthana is greatly impacted by the element water, and can be balanced by spending plenty of time in or near to it.

Yoga asanas that benefit the sacral chakra are Ustrasana (Camel Pose, as shown above), Matsyasana (Fish Pose), Baddha konasana (Butterfly Pose), Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose), and Utkata Konasana (Goddess Squats).

M u l a d h a r a

Our subconscious feelings about our physical existence is centralized at the base of our spine in our root chakra energy center. Nurturing its dynamics is a profound part of our healing and personal growth, and how we begin to understand and relate to the nature in which we are rooted in this physical plane. Emotional currents and patterns ripple through our ancestry,  shaping the trajectory of our own well-being. The adrenal glands, kidneys, and bladder are all affected by our relationship with our root chakra energy center, as is our self-awareness, and our sense of security, strength, stability and survival.
