Enlightened Living with our Colors

Color is the language of the universe, Nature's own system of light.
 Color is everywhere...the blue sky, green grass, orange sunsets, etc.
The colors of the rainbow are the colors of Nature.
They are what make our world so beautiful.

Sunlight has no color on it's own, it appears as white light.
Isaac Newton discovered, when light is passed through a prism,
it reflects the seven, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo & violet.
Colors are light waves that are reflected & absorbed by all things.
Every color has it's own frequency & wave-length.  

But the real magic of Color happens within us. 
We perceive different wavelengths of light as corresponding to different Colors.
It is within us that the tree appears lush green, or the sky blue or the stop light red. 
Without us as observers, there would be no Color. 
Our response to Color is subjective, but when the study of color harmony is combined with
the science of psychology, our reactions can be predicted with amazing accuracy!

Each color is associated with a particular part of the body, and will affect us
emotionally, physically or mentally.

Our mood, health & happiness are all affected by the colors around us.

  Some see a color as exciting, but for others it may cause irritation.

  Some colors make us feel warm & friendly, where others make us feel cold & aloof.

   Colors in our environment affect our behavior & mood. 
We immediately begin to feel lighter & happier when we look at daffodils or pretty, pink roses,
whereas gray skies & fog make us want to stay in & be warm.

  When we are "in sync" with our Colors, we are connected on a deeper level to Nature. 
We naturally feel more clarity, confidence, peace & love.

Where does Color come from?

The colors we see are light waves absorbed or reflected by everything around us.

In nature, a rainbow is white light that is broken apart by the moisture in the air.

White light can be broken apart using tools like prisms or a spectroscope.

The colors of the visible light spectrum are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

White light consists of all of the colors mixed together.

The color of an object depends on how it absorbs and/or reflects light.

If an object absorbs all of the light wavelengths, it will appear black.

If it reflects all of them, it will appear white.

Colors produce significant changes in our emotions, and help create positive/negative emotional states in the mind.

Each color has its own area of influence in the body and produces physical & mental responses in that area.
