There are seven natural colors, which are those found in the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, yellow-green, blue, and violet. Each one has its own properties
is a soothing color that gives a sense of peace and calm. The lighter it is, the better. In holistic practices, it is said to relieve anxiety, fever, and respiratory problem. This color is great for bedrooms and living areas. If you don’t like blue, you can use red to balance it.
It is the color of blood and heat, and it is believed to help in blood flow and sexual drive. It is the color of strength and power. It promotes good circulation, and energizes both the nervous system and bone marrow. Too much red can cause an excess of pitta in the body, possibly resulting in inflammation. You may use this color discretely in your home by using accents of this shade. /
Yellow is associated with the crown of the head. Its vibrations stimulate understanding and thought. Yellow also represents an absence of ego. Too much yellow can lead to problems in the small intestine.
It is great for the nerves and promotes sharpness of the mind. It is a color that cleanses negative energy and toxins from the body. Yellow can also be chosen in the form of gold, which helps you feel assertive. This color is great for foyers, great rooms and living rooms.
Yellow-green vibrational energy has the color therapy healing properties of yellow and green.
Green is connected to the heart, bringing energy to the heart chakra. It is the color for a calm, soothing happiness. Too much of this vibrational energy can create gallbladder stones.
It is a color that balances all other colors. No wonder it feels good to have indoor plants inside the home. It makes you feel fresh, even on a 40 degree summer heat.
Orange is connected with the sex organs. Its vibrational energy, like red, is warming and healing. It encourages sexual stimulation, which can be transformed into spiritual energy for those who are celibate. Orange also helps with congestion problems and dull skin. It is an energy booster and not too drastic like the color red. It is a color of creativity and joy, which can be perfect to brighten up that sad, boring space. You can use this color in your home office.
Violet vibrational energy brings awakening and awareness of spiritual energy. The body feels light, and the mind is able to perceive the subtle. It is the color of wisdom, and it brings your mind and body to rest. This color is great for those suffering migraine or insomnia. For a feminine touch, hues of lavender can be used in the bedroom for that charm and serenity.
FREQUENCY & THE HUMAN BODY
* Measurements on the human body found that a healthy person has a frequency around 62-68 MHz.
* When a person’s frequency dips to 58 MHz, cold symptoms can manifest.
* Flu symptoms start at 57 MHz, Candida at 55 MHz, and Epstein Barr syndrome at 52 MHz.
* Cancer can begin when the body falls below 42 MHz.
* The process of dying begins at 25 MHz and goes to zero…
Chakra is a sanskrit word, and it means “wheel,” or “vortex,” because that’s what it looks like when we look at it. Each chakra is like a solid ball of energy interpenetrating the physical body, in the same way that a magnetic field can interpenetrate the physical body.
The chakras are not physical. They are aspects of consciousness in the same way that the auras are aspects of consciousness The chakras are more dense than the auras, but not as dense as the physical body. They interact with the physical body through two major “transport’ systems, the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven chakras is associated with one of the seven endocrine glands, and also with a particular group of nerves called a plexus. Thus, each chakra can be associated with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by that plexus or that endocrine gland can be associated with that chakra.
Your consciousness, your experience of being, represents everything it is possible for you to experience. All of your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, can be divided into seven categories, and each of these categories can be associated with a particular chakra. Thus, the chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness. When you feel tension in your consciousness, you feel it in the chakra associated with the part of your consciousness experiencing the stress, and in the parts of the physical body associated with that chakra. Where you feel the stress depends therefore on why you feel the stress. When someone is hurt in a relationship, they feel it in their heart. When someone is nervous, their legs tremble and their bladder becomes weak.
When there is tension in a particular part of your consciousness, and therefore in the chakra associated with that part of your consciousness, the tension is detected by the nerves of the plexus associated with that chakra, and communicated to the parts of the body controlled by that plexus. When the tension continues over a period of time, or reaches a particular degree of intensity, the person creates a symptom on the physical level. Again, the symptom served to communicate to the person through their body what they had been doing to themselves in their consciousness. When the person changes something about their way of being, they are able to release the stress that had been creating the symptom, and they are then able to return to their natural state of balance and health.
When we are reading the body as a map of the consciousness within, we work with the idea that the tensions in the body represent tensions in the person’s consciousness concerning what was happening in the person’s life at the time that the symptom developed. The person was feeling stress about something that was happening in their life at that time.
We are going to examine the map of consciousness that the chakras provide, in order to understand the language of the symptoms that are associated with each chakra. In order to complete this map, however, we also need to look at ourselves as each a polarity of yin and yang, feminine and masculine characteristics.
For most people, their right side is their yang side, their will side, their acting or active side, and the left side is their yin side, their female side, their feeling or adaptive side. For people who were born left-handed, this polarity is reversed. Thus, for a right-handed person, their right leg can be described as their will leg, or their male leg, or the foundation of their will, but for a left-handed person, their left leg would be their male leg or will leg, and so on. Thus, we can talk about the will arm, or the will eye, or the will nostril, etc., and which side it is on will depend upon whether the person is right-handed or left-handed at birth.
Each of the chakras is energy vibrating at a certain frequency, in a logical and orderly sequence of seven vibrations. As we move up the scale, the elements become more and more subtle, moving through the five physical elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, to the spiritual elements of inner sound and inner light. The heaviest element is on the bottom, the lightest on the top. It is a logical and orderly sequence.
The colors of the spectrum also represent a series of seven vibrations in a logical and orderly sequence, as do the notes of the musical scale. Thus, we can put the heaviest vibrations or the longest wavelength on the bottom and the lightest on the top, and a particular color can be used to represent a chakra in its clear state, as can a particular musical note. Music played in a certain key vibrates a particular chakra, and we feel a particular way when we hear that music. Our relationship with a certain color says something about our relationship with the part of our consciousness that the color represents.
Theis associated with the parts of our consciousness concerned with security, survival, or trust. For most people, this concerns the parts of their consciousness concerned with money, home, and job. When this chakra is in its clear state, the person is able to feel secure, be present in the here and now, and be grounded. When there is tension in this chakra, it is experienced as insecurity or fear. When there is more tension, it is experienced as a threat to survival.The Parts of the body controlled by the sacral plexus and this chakra include the skeleton system, the legs, and the elimination system. Symptoms in these parts of the body represent, therefore, tensions at the level of the Root Chakra, and we therefore know that the person is seeing the world through a perceptual filter of insecurity or fear. The adrenal glands are also associated with this chakra.
If one leg is affected, we can see whether it is the male leg or the female leg, and thus whether it has something to do with trust in a male or trust in a female. We can also see it as having something to do with trust in the will, or the aspects of trust in the foundations the emotional being, related to what was happening in the person’s life at the time the symptom developed.
The physical sense of smell, and therefore the organ of the sense of smell, the nose, is associated with the Root Chakra. Symptoms at the level of the nose or affecting the sense of smell reflect tensions at the level of the Root Chakra.
Each chakra is associated with an element. The Root Chakra is associated with the element of earth, and reflects something about the person’s association with the earth, or how they feel about being on the earth, which we call Mother Earth. This chakra is also associated with our relationship with our mother. When someone experiences a sense of separation from their mother, or not feeling loved by their mother, they cut off their roots and experience symptoms of tensions at the level of the Root Chakra until they can again open to accept their mother’s love.
When a child comes into the world in the traditional family structure, the mother provides the nourishment and the father provides the direction. Thus, in the child’s relationship with its mother, it makes certain decisions about the way things are. The relationship with the mother thus becomes a model for the person’s relationship with everything that represents security – money, home, and job.
The Root Chakra is associated with the color red.
The Abdominal Chakra is associated with the parts of our consciousness concerned with food and sex – the communication from the body to the person within it, about what the body wants or needs, and what it finds pleasurable. It also is related to what is happening in their consciousness about having children. When this chakra is in its clear state, the person is in touch with this communication, and listening to and responding appropriately to what the body wants and needs. Parts of the body controlled by the lumbar plexus include the reproductive system and the abdomen, and the lumbar region of the back.The
The sense of taste is associated with this chakra, as is the element of water. When someone does not have a clear relationship with water (swimming, for example, or being on a boat), this reflects their attitudes about the parts of their consciousness that this chakra represents.
Tensions on the will side or the emotional side of this chakra indicate tensions in the person’s consciousness as conflicts between either the will or the emotions with what the person’s body is asking for.
This chakra is associated with the sense of taste, and with appetite. It is also involved with the person’s willingness to feel their emotions.
The second chakra is associated with the color orange.
Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the parts of our consciousness having to do with perceptions of power, control, or freedom. In its clear state, it represents ease of being, and comfort with what is real for one’s self – being comfortable with who you are.The
Parts of the body associated with this chakra include the organs closest to the solar plexus – stomach, gall bladder, spleen, liver, etc. – as well as the skin as a system, the muscular system as a system, and the face in general.
The physical sense associated with this chakra is the sense of sight. Anyone with impaired eyesight experiences tension at the level of their solar plexus chakra about the issues of power, control, or freedom. Nearsighted people also experience tensions at the level of the Root Chakra, and experience the world through a perceptual filter of fear or insecurity. Those who are farsighted experience tension also at the level of the throat chakra, and see the world through a perceptual filter of anger or guilt. Astigmatics see through the emotional perceptual filter of confusion.
The endocrine gland associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra is the pancreas. We can say that diabetics are keeping sweetness from themselves. When someone gets too close with sweetness, they feel threatened in their power to be who they are, and an emotion comes up to create a safe distance again. The emotion is anger. Diabetes is associated with suppressed anger.
The element associated with this chakra is fire, and the person’s relationship with the sun says something about their relationship with the parts of their consciousness associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra.
The color of the Solar Plexus Chakra is yellow.
The Heart Chakra
The physical sense associated with this chakra is the sense of touch, in its aspect of relating to the person inside the body. For example, a massage given to someone with no sensitivity to what the person is feeling inside would be an example of the sensation we associate with the Abdominal Chakra, but when the masseur seems to have a sense of what the person inside the body is experiencing, then it includes the aspect of relating we associate with the Heart Chakra. When someone experiences extreme sensitivity about being touched, we would ask what was happening at the level of the Heart Chakra.
This chakra is associated with the element of air. When someone has difficulty with air, with breathing (asthma, emphysema, tuberculosis, etc.), we say that their relationship with air reflects their relationship with love – difficulty letting it in, or letting it out, for example
The color associated with the Heart Chakra is emerald green.
The Throat Chakra
The throat chakra is associated with abundance, and with the state of consciousness called, “grace,” where it seems that what you want for you is also what God wants for you. Accepting what the abundant universe offers you requires a sense of unconditionally receiving.
This chakra is also associated with listening to one’s intuition, and flowing in a particular way where it seems that the Universe supports you in all that you do. It is the first level of consciousness from which one perceives another level of intelligence functioning, and one’s interaction with this other level of intelligence.
Parts of the body associated with this chakra include the throat, shoulders, and arms and hands. and the thyroid gland.
The sense of hearing is associated with this chakra, and the element of ether, the most subtle physical element, corresponding to what we find in deep space. The ether is the crossover between the physical and the spiritual dimensions. Someone looking at the world through this chakra watches the manifestation of their goals. The Will Arm represents manifesting what you want, and the Feeling Arm represents manifesting what makes you happy. Hopefully, the two point to the same thing.
Blue is the color associated with this chakra.
The Brow Chakra
This chakra is associated with the carotid plexus, and the nerves on each side of the face, and the pituitary gland. Headaches in the temples or center of the forehead are associated with tensions at this level. This chakra controls the entire endocrine system as a system, and the process of growth.
The Brow chakra, also known as the Third Eye, is associated with extra sensory perception (ESP), the set of all inner senses that correspond to the outer senses, which together comprise spirit-to-spirit communication. The element associated with this chakra is a vibration known as the Inner Sound, the sound that one hears in their ears that does not depend upon something in the physical world. Some consider it a pathological condition. In some of the eastern traditions the ability to hear this is considered a necessary prerequisite to further spiritual growth.
The color associated with this chakra is indigo, midnight blue, the color of lapis lazuli, or the color of the night sky during a full moon.
The Crown Chakra
The person feels as if they are hiding from God, or hiding from themselves, not seeing what is true for them in the deepest part of their consciousness, the part we call the soul.
This chakra is also associated with a sense of direction.
The parts of the body controlled by this chakra are the pineal gland, the brain, and the entire nervous system as a system.
The color associated with the Crown Chakra is violet, the color of amethyst
Using The Map
When there is tension in a particular part of the body, this represents a tension in a particular part of the consciousness, about a particular part of the person’s life. Being aware of these associations helps one to see the importance of resolving the tense issues in their life.
When we see the correspondences between the consciousness and the body, we see the degree to which we each create our reality. In fact, those words begin to take on a new meaning. We see how everything begins in our consciousness and we are able to look around us at other aspects of our lives in the same way.
When we see how the body carries our the messages and deepest wishes of the Being within the body, we can realize that the process can go in more than one direction. If our consciousness is directing how we develop symptoms, it can also direct how we release these same symptoms. If our consciousness can make our body ill, our consciousness can make our body well.
The logical conclusion of this process is that anything can be healed.
Unfortunately not all essential oils are created equal. In fact many, if not all the oils on the market are what is called “perfume quality” or “4th & 5th quality oils. These are over-processed, chemical laden, highly adulterated & de-natured products that, in reality, are little more than cheap perfume made from various odorous plants. This includes oils found in health food stores. Many people think that when they buy an oil that is labeled as “100% pure” they are getting good oils. This is far from true. Pure unadulterated essential oil is very hard to come by & can be very expensive. One reason for this is because it can take as many as 500 to 2,000 pounds or more of raw plant material to produce just a pound of pure essential oil. To maintain all of the therapeutic qualities, it must be extracted by steam distillation using extremely low pressure & low heat so as not to defile the quality of the oil.
There are 4 grades of essential oils:
PURE - This means the oil was not diluted with a lesser quality essential oil. For example: lavender oil is often cut with lavendin, which has very little therapeutic quality. “Pure” does not mean it has no chemicals added to it. It could be 75% vegetable oil & 25% essential oil & still be labeled “100% Pure.” In the U.S., you are only required to have 5% essential oil in the bottle to label it “Pure.”
NATURAL – This means the oil was not adulterated with vegetable oils, propylene glycol, SD Alcohol 40 or other chemicals.
COMPLETE - This means the oil was distilled at low heat & low pressure so that all the therapeutic properties are there. They have not been rectified or purified (which means stripped or redistilled.) Essential oils are often redistilled to make a small amount of oil go farther. They can make more profit that way. The problem is, when you redistill the oil you lose the therapeutic properties. It’s like using a tea bag over & over again. ** An example: France is the number one producer of lavender oil. In 1997 they produced 25 tons of lavender and 67 tons were shipped to the U.S. Melissa oil is another example. It is very hard to produce. Out of 52 pounds of pure melissa oil, 1000 pounds were exported. What is wrong with this picture?
** There are anywhere from 200 – 800 chemical constituents that make up a single essential oil. When the oil is not distilled properly, you will be left with as few as 10.
GENUINE & AUTHENTIC or GRADE A - These are the cream of the crop. Great care is taken at every step of the process. Seeds- not from hybrids, soil- organic soil that never has chemicals put on it. Chemicals are never used on the plants in the field. Distillation by steam at low pressure & low temperature in upright containers & no chemicals are ever used in the process. Must have clarity of definition (one plant could have 200 species.) The time in the distiller is also important- cypress oil needs to be distilled for 24 hours. Many companies will distill at higher temperature for a shorter time. This will destroy the quality of the oil. The distiller must be no more than 50 miles away from the sight where the plants were harvested, must have Gas Chromatograph readings with an embossed seal that does not come from their own lab. Then & only then can they have the words “Grade A” on the label.
Not all essential oils have the same vibrational frequency. Currently, the highest measured frequency of any pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil is 320 MHz – equivalent to 320,000,000 cycles per second. The scale begins at zero; here, no energy is cycling and no signs of life are present. Frequencies can be separated into three ranges:
Support physical ailments
Promote emotional change
Encourage spiritual growth and realization
1. How Scents Can Encourage a Good Mood
Essential oils are one of the most versatile ways to create the life and mood you truly desire. Whether you use them in diffusion, massage, inhalation (even with just a few drops in the palms of your hands), or bath, essential oils will help enhance happiness and amusement.
Here’s a short list of the best essential oils that will surely bring you a burst of joy! Blend them one with one another (no more than three in a blend), experiment, and enjoy them fully.
* Orange: This is the perfect “anti-gloom” essential oil! It brings a sense of joy, happiness, and playfulness.
* Mandarin: Mandarin reminds you of the simple fun of our childhood. It brings laughter, humor, and a child-like energy.
* Lemon: Lemon exchanges a grouchy mood for a more humorous one. It enhances energy, happiness, and amusement.
* Grapefruit: Grapefruit helps you see and create more fun in your everyday life. It helps you let go, revive, and laugh!
* Lime: Lime turns your negative perspective into a positive one while also bringing some humor to any situation. It vivifies, invigorates, and enhances optimism.
2. Color Therapy: Change Your Dress Code!
How would you feel in a world that showed only shades of black and white? At any given moment, colors are influencing your life, moods, and emotions. Colors also affect your overall health and well-being-even subconsciously we wear colors that represent our mood of the day. Each color possesses a specific “vibration” or frequency that corresponds to our chakra system. The colors we wear play with our moods, thus attracting what we put out. Here are some examples
Red is hot. It’s a strong color that conjures up a range of seemingly conflicting emotions, from passionate love to violence and warfare. Red is cupid and the devil. A stimulant, red is the hottest of the warm colors. Studies show that red can have a physical effect, increasing the rate of respiration and raising blood pressure. Use red to grab attention and to get people to take action. Red is power, hence the red carpet for celebrities and VIPs. Use red when you don’t want to sink into the background.
Orange is vibrant. It’s a combination of red and yellow so it shares some common attributes with those colors. As a warm color, it stimulates the emotions and even the appetite. It denotes energy, warmth, and the sun. But orange has a bit less intensity or aggression than red, calmed by the cheerfulness of yellow.
Yellow is sunshine. It is a warm color that, like red, has conflicting symbolism. On the one hand it denotes happiness and joy, but on the other hand it’s the color of cowardice and deceit. It is the color to lifts spirits and project optimism. The “yellowest” essential oils are lemon and grapefruit. Roman Chamomile has a pinch of yellow.
