The Secrets of Color: Introduction


Does blue really make you blue? What color helps you with diabetes? Can green help make you richer?

In 2015, MykieintheRaw presents you The Secrets of Color series by my dear friend, April McMillan. Each month, this series will examine the chromotherapy and the healing effects of each color. 


Chromotherapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colors) of electromagnetic radiation to cure diseases. It is a centuries-old concept and science. Visible light can be broken down into numerous electromagnetic frequencies, and frequency relates to a color of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet and all the vibrations thereof.

Every creature is engulfed in light that affects its health conditions.* Light affects both the physical and etheric bodies. Colors generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents(or fields of energy) that activate and control the biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body; and the stimulants or sedatives necessary to balance the entire system and its organs.


According to the doctrine of chromotherapy, the human body is basically composed of colors. Colors create, stimulate, and maintain the body and its various systems. All organs and limbs of the body have their own distinct color.** All organs, cells and atoms exist as energy, and each form has its frequency or vibrational energy. Each of our organs and energy centers, vibrates and harmonizes with the frequencies of these colors. When various parts of the body deviate from these expected normal vibrations, one can assume that the body is either diseased or at least not functioning properly. The vibratory rates, inherent in Chromotherapy, are such that they balance the diseased energy pattern. In every organ there is an energetic level at which the organ functions best. Any departure from that vibratory rate results in disease and illness.***

The topic of Chromotherapy is extensive. Nevertheless, I’ve created individual posts explaining the basic healing properties and historical reference of each color within the general color octave.
