In healing colors act as balancers: we administer the color(s) someone needs more of, or we give the opposite of the color someone has too much of. Why should the body need color suppletion? Healthy people are in tune with their ground-tune, what means that they vibrate on their own unique frequency. Their aura – the invisible energy bodies – will keep them in balance by attracting the right cosmic forces for their physical body. When people get stressed, shocked, frightened or ill-treated their aura becomes damaged. These energetic power fields become thin, show dark spots or lesions, what keeps the aura from proper working. The result is that you adapt a different frequency, and you will feel uncomfortable or get sick. Here the healing qualities of light come in. Each color has a particular wavelength; by administering a certain color we strengthen the aura to repair itself and return to its original ground-tune. The physical effect is healing of the body.

Practical use of color healing
Colored light can be obtained by using colored bulbs in lamps, or covering a lamp or window with a transparent colored (plastic) sheet, or by colored dials in a projector. What you do is sit or lie in the stream of colored light for about 30 minutes during several days.
You can hang up (silk) pieces of cloth or paper sheets in the desired color in the room.
You can fill colored glasses or bottles with (spring)water, place it in the window for at least three hours and drink three glasses a day of this water.
You can wear clothes in certain colors.
You can eat food in certain colors. Need more energy: eat tomatoes and strawberries; want mental clarity: bananas and corn, etc.
You can visualize colored light in and around your body, breathe it in and direct it to the body-parts that need it.
Wear jewelry with gemstones in the colors you need.
Visit places in nature that match your need of colors. For calmness go to water, for balance go to the woods, for energy buy red flowers, etc.
Of course a combination of the above works best
Distant color healing can be done in several ways.
Take a photograph, or piece of paper with full address and date of birth of the person you wish to help healing. Expose this to colored light as described above, for 1,5 to 2 hours a day on successive days.
Or put this photograph is an envelope or piece of cloth in the right color and expose it to the sun for several hours a day.
A third way is visualizing the person filled up and surrounded by colored light for as long as you can. Always end with visualizing or sending white light to the person.
