The Science of Color Therapy
With these glasses, you can choose a color on which to focus attention. Often, a difference in feeling becomes evident shortly after putting on the glasses. Color enters the eyes through the lens and is then sent to receptors in the retina called rods and cones. The rods and cones send the color frequencies through the optic nerve to the brain and to the pineal glands. In the brain, the frequencies are interpreted to determine the colors. The different wavelengths of the frequencies determine which color will be perceived.
The pineal glands convert nervous system signals into endocrine signals. When they reach the pineal glands, colors can have various effects on the body by affecting the way in which the pineal glands determine endocrine function. Thus the different wavelengths have different effects on physical and psychological functions. On a less scientific note, most people simply feel different when exposed to different colors. A good example would be to imagine yourself wearing a color that you rarely wear. For example, a woman who usually wears black would feel quite different in an orange shirt. Color Therapy Eyewear allows you to become immersed in a particular color, which can maximize the impact of that color on the body.The Qualities of Different Colors
Red is associated with energy, power, courage, and self-confidence. Red is the color of the root chakra. When this chakra, or energy center, is balanced, you feel settled, secure, and safe. The stimulating color red can help provide the energy you need to take care of things that provide security in the material world. A comfortable home, an adequate income, and good food are all associated with the root chakra. Red can help give an extra spark to the process of gaining stability and physical comfort.
Orange is associated with sociability, creativity, and happiness. Orange is the color of the sacral chakra, the energy center of procreation, pleasure, feeling, and emotions. The warming color orange can help to encourage free expression, enjoyment, and more pleasure in relationships. It can also help you let go of negative thought patterns.
Yellow symbolizes health, cheerfulness, and mental clarity. Yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra. This energy center—associated with the digestive system—involves confidence, empowerment, and self-esteem. A balanced solar plexus chakra helps you have the ability to value self and trust others. Yellow helps give the courage to let go of negative views that you may hold about yourself. A balanced solar plexus can help you to manifest what you need and want in life.
Green is the color for harmony, healing, peace, and love. Green is associated with the heart chakra. When the heart chakra is balanced, a feeling of unconditional love is experienced and radiated. Working with the heart chakra helps you let go of resentment and become more forgiving. Exposure to the color green often has a calming effect that allows you to be more open to positive experience. A good example is to think of the wonderful feeling that you get from taking a walk through a forest.
Blue symbolizes sensitivity, loyalty, and integrity. It is the color of the throat chakra, the center of language, communication, and personal expression. When the throat chakra is in balance, you are better able to perceive and express the truth, and manifesting your ideas becomes easier. You are a more confident speaker, and your ideas are heard more readily. Blue can help you to develop flowing, easy expression.
Indigo encourages intuition, meditation, awareness, and perception. The color of the third eye chakra is indigo. Indigo can help you achieve the clarity needed to let go of ideas and experiences that prevent accurate perception. Indigo can help you to enhance and trust your intuitive powers. Indigo is a serene color, which helps provide stillness needed to access the meditative states that allow you to expand your life experience.
Violet is considered the most spiritual of the colors. Violet is associated with the crown chakra, the seventh energy center. A balanced crown chakra leads to spiritual fulfillment and a conscious awareness of life. Violet encourages generosity, selflessness, wisdom, and inspiration.
