Working of color therapy:
Color therapy is mainly based on creating balance and enhancing energy. The seven colors of light spectrum are properly aligned along each charka of the body.
These colors resonate with your body’s own healing energy to alleviate stress, headaches, etc. each color has its own wavelength and supplies the energy of the corresponding charka.
The colors and their corresponding charkas are:
- Blue = the throat
- Green = the heart
- Indigo = the brow
- Orange = the lower tummy area
- Red = the base or groin
- Violet = the crown of the head
- Yellow = the solar plexus
Each charka is considered as an energy wheel with each color as a component in the machine of the body. Once any component is out of alignment, the entire machine runs improperly or breaks down.
So a better health can be achieved by keeping all of the seven components flowing proper energy to each part of the body.
