It’s easy to become immune to the repetitive things that we experience in this lifetime. The inborn can become seemingly dissociated from our senses. For example, when is the last time you have acknowledged color? If you are not blind or completely color blind, then you experience color every moment of your life. Even your dreams are in color.
Imagine that from the beginning of your existence that you never had a sense of sight at all. Not only would you never understand what anything actually looked like, you wouldn’t even have the context for what color actually is. How would you explain color to someone who has never, and will never, see?
This question came whilst pondering color therapy.
Color therapy, or chromatherapy is an alternative medicine in which color is used to equalize energy in a person’s body. Each color corresponds to different systems in the body.
- Red - Root
- Orange - Sacrum
- Yellow - Solar Plexus
- Green - Heart
- Blue - Throat
- Indigo - Third Eye
- Magenta - Crown
Color are also associated with our emotions. Max Lüscher, a Swiss psychotherapist, has created a test in which color selections are guided in an unconscious manner. The color selections act as a mirror to reveal your inner truth. You can take the quiz here to find an extensive analysis of your selections.
To further your understanding of how you interact with color — aura photography shows what colors comprises your energy field. Spearheaded by the work of Walter John Kilner (1847-1920), a medical electrician from London, who published one of the first western medical studies on aura (or as he coined it, “The Human Atmosphere”) — aura photography is now an instantaneous process in which biofeedback imaging cameras capture your body's invisible electromagnetic field! The results are then interpreted using the color correspondences as listed above.
If we always remained aware of our breathtaking senses — then it seems no one would ever have the time to experience lack, separation, or unworthiness....we would be too busy being devotees to the magic of life. But then, maybe forgetting our nature is just as important as remembering.
