Color is an intriguing thing. It’s all around us, making our world a more exciting and interesting place to be in compared to the inhabitants of other planets who have to contend with just black, white or varying shades of grey and brown.
More intriguing is the fact that color only exists when there is light. The saying ‘All cats are grey in the dark’ goes to show how monotonous and boring one’s life would be if they perpetually hid away from the sun.
Healers believed that colours are powerful because they contain energy. Their level of vibrational energy determines whether they emit warmth or coolness. Used correctly, colours can be used to calm, energise and inspire emotional or physical responses.
According to psychics, colors are used for healing in various ways, such as:
•Meditation or visualisation
•Wearing colours to affect moods
•Using colours in the home
•Eating foods whose colors may benefit our bodies
