Healing by Colors

Chromotherpay is an alternative medicine method for relieving depression. Researchers confirm that looking at the gardens makes brings joy to oneself, and that an hour’s meditation between the colorful flowers and trees is an effective method for relieving depression, disappointments and other psychological problems. We can see that today’s science links between an internal sense of happiness and contemplating at the nature.

The Quran eloquently briefed this fact in God’s words, as He says 

(Is not He (best) Who created the heavens and the earth, and sendeth down for you water from the sky wherewith We cause to spring forth joyous orchards, whose trees it never hath been yours to cause to grow. Is there any God beside Allah? Nay, but they are folk who ascribe equals (unto Him)!  [Quran 27:60]

So, see how the wonderful link was drawn in the Quran between the feeling of joy and the orchards. The Quran mentioned this long before scientists of the East and the West did.

What is Chromotherapy

Chromotherapy or Color Therapy is the science that uses the colors to modify or to keep the vibrations of the body in a frequency that results in health, welfare and harmony.

Both humans and nature need the light of the sun to live. In this process, man and nature receive the solar light which is broken up into seven main rays, and then distributed to our physical and energetic bodies. If there is an in-balance of these colors in our energetic field, this reflects on our physical body as a mental or physical illness.

The luminous energy of colors is of the same nature as the electromagnetic energy of radio and television waves. Just as the transmitters and receptors of radio waves, humans are also transmitting and receiving these energies in the same way.

Therefore, we can emit the energy of a certain color by simply thinking about it. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration has characteristics related to different physical symptoms.

To summarize, we have the following colors that are represented on the 7 main elements: 

Violet - Deals with heightened and elevated themes, assist in meditation and elevation. Relates to the subtle plane.

Lilac - Deals with intuition and subjects of the mind (more rational). It connects to the head.

Blue - Deals with speech (inhibition to express yourself). It connects to the throat.

Green - Relates to the intermediate plane. It connects with the lung and heart.

Yellow - Deals with nervousness and agitation. Relates to anxiety in the material plane, auto-expression. It connects with the stomach, liver, intestine, and other organs.

Orange - Related to the conjugal hereditary succession and situations in the material plane. Connects to the sexual organs and kidneys.

Red - The densest of all planes (or material). Deals with the structure of a man in its path. It connects to the legs and feet.

In spite of the simple functioning of Chromotherapy, there are serious precautions that need to be taken when applying the colors.

Time of exposure (excesses are harmful) or applications in erroneous regions may cause unwanted effects. Therefore, don't go out and simply apply colors to your body. The effects can be harmful to your health. It is important to remember that caring for the body and the mind is a legal responsibility of doctors, psychologists, massage therapists and other health professionals.

"Do you not see that Allah sends water down from the sky? Then, He channels it into rivers and springs across the earth, and produces with it vegetation of all different (kinds and) colors. But then it withers and you see it fade and (turn) yellow. Later, He turns it into chaff. Indeed, there is a lesson in it for any sensible person!" [Quran 39:21]

"Similarly men, beasts, crawling creatures and cattle are of different colors, too. Indeed, among His servants, those with knowledge are the ones who really fear Allah. Of course! Allah is the Mightiest and the most Forgiving." [Quran 35:28]
