Color and aroma therapies are powerful vibrational
healing modalities that promote wellness in
They bypass the conscious mind and directly
affect the limbic system. The correct colors
and aromas can calm or energize us instantly,
depending on our need at the moment.
This, of course, works on the mind/body connection,
promoting balance in our energy system, and
providing profound benefits in terms of hormonal
(physical), emotional, mental, and spiritual

One of the most satisfactory aspects of using
essential oils medicinally and cosmetically
is that they enter and leave the body with
great efficiency, leaving no toxins behind.
The most effective way to use essential oils
is not orally, as one might think, but by
external application or inhalation.
The methods used include:
- body oils
- cosmetic lotions
- baths (including sitz, hand, and foot
- hair rinses,
- inhalation (by steam, direct from the
bottle or from a tissue)
- room sprays
- and a whole range of room methods
Unlike chemical drugs, essential oils do
not, as far as we know remain in the body.
They are excreted in three to six hours in
a normal healthy body and up to fourteen hours
in an obese or unhealthy body.
As well as being noninvasive and nontoxic
to the human organism, essential oils are
noninvasive in terms of heat and electromagnetism.
Each body cell is electrically charged, and
the effect of electricity, in all its forms,
plays a part in the healing process.
The dextrorototary and lavorotatory (clockwise
and counterclockwise) characteristics of essential
oils have been known for a long time. It could
be that these aspects of the essential oils
contribute towards stimulating the body's
own natural healing mechanisms.
The positive effect of essential oils on
blood circulation is well known. Through this,
they play an important part in bringing oxygen
and nutrients to the tissues, while assisting
in the efficient disposal of carbon dioxide
and the other waste products that are produced
by cell metabolism.
The general increase in blood flow improves
the efficiency of the immune system and decreases
blood viscosity. In deed, there is not a part
of the human body and brain that is not helped
by good circulation.

Sunlight, which contains all wavelengths,
consists of the entire electromagnetic spectrum
that we depend on to exist on this plant.
It is odd that scientists who understand rays
in the atmosphere do not understand the effect
that colors have on us.
We know that some rays can be dangerous if
we are exposed to them. But the visible light,
the rainbow, has a soothing effect on us.
This life-giving light can probably give us
even more help if we learn to understand what
the colors mean.
How Do We Absorb Colors
- First, photons reach the retina, where
they are transformed into electric nerve
- These nerve impulses are transferred to
the brain through a progressive series of
electrochemical reactions in the nerve cells.
- Finally, the back end of the brain receives
the electricity and transfers it to the
picture we see outside our bodies.
The seven color energies are the prime power
behind every chakra. Every chakra has a latent
"mission" or "assignment" that has to be fulfilled.
Moreover, the fulfillment of these missions
is a birthright of every individual. Unfortunately,
life is filled with so many unforeseen incidents
that it can be difficult for a person to fulfill
these needs and still remain balanced and
positive. We have a right to fulfill the mission
or inherent need associated with each chakra.
Red Root Center
Right "To Have"
The right to survive is the most
important aspect of the red energy
center. Food, clothing, shelter, heat,
medical aid, and physical contact
are among the most important things
in life. Concern with these basics
is a primary part of the red energy,
and it will always seek a way to best
satisfy these needs.
Orange Spleen Center
Right "To Feel"
Accusations like "shame on you" or
"you have no right to be angry" are
very hard on orange energy, as it
does not like to be told what to feel.
It is very hard for the organ energy
to know what it wants to do if it is not allowed to feel freely.
Yellow Solar Plexus Center
Right "To Act"
We are trained to obey and submit
to authority from childhood. Parents
who use their power to raise "good"
children, and teachers or other authorities
who demand blind obedience, block
the yellow child's personal willpower
and the ability to express themselves
The Green Heart Center
Right "To Love and Be Loved"
People need to love. Emotional blockages
arise when people are exposed to racial
discrimination, cultural barriers,
and war. These things block love out.
Furthermore, the heart chakra can
simply close if you do not receive
enough love as a child or as an adult.
Blue Throat Center
Right "To Talk and Live In Truth"
Messages such as "do not talk like
that" or "calm down if you are that
angry!" stop us from expressing our
feelings. This suppression of feelings
can lead to the closing of the throat
chakra. Our throat chakra will also
close when we have to listen to family
lies, or keep secrets that we do not
wish to keep.
Indigo Brow Center
Right "To See"
Your forehead chakra can close when
someone tries to tell you that what
you see or think is not real, when
someone lies and keeps things hidden
from you, and when the development
of your "third eye" is hampered.
Violet Crown Center
Right "To Know"
Restraint can, paradoxically, really
inspire a violet person. By taking
away a violet person's opportunity
to develop spiritually or to spread
spiritual knowledge, or by subjecting
a violet person to dictatorial forces,
extra spiritual energy is generated,
and this is what creates saints.
