Article submission, Monday, 26th June 2007

As a child I am sure the story of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow fascinated you, it still does to me and somewhere a child in me still likes to believe that at least happiness if not gold will be there at the end of colours. We are surely talking colours without which our life would not be as interesting. Seven colours make beautiful rainbow and same goes for life which should also be a balance of colours Nature has provided us with colour to feed both the body and soul as it nourishes the whole system. As highly colourful beings our forms are made up of ever changing vibrating colours and we respond to colour both actively or passively.

Light waves penetrate our systems whether we are awake or asleep. Our growth, blood pressure, body temperature, activity, sleep patterns and immune system are all affected by light rays, as well as affecting our emotions, moods and mental ability. We all share a very individual and personal relationship with colours. So when you pick that pink all the time you are saying loudly to the world love me more, yellow shows friendly or outspoken nature, more red you pick more stronger you feel but see to that it does not sap you of your energy!

Finally whatever your favourite colour is and whatever you wish to achieve in your life here we can use the technique of colour to maintain health and alleviate many disorders and imbalances. The effect of colour does not end when we close our eyes. Light is required for cells to function normally and individual colours affect them by causing changes in growth and behaviour. White light which is a mixture of coloured light affects the pituitary gland of the endocrine system it regulate the production of hormones in the body which control our bodily functions like growth, sleep basal temperature, sexual drive, metabolic rate appetite.

The pineal gland located deep is also light sensitive, produces melatonin which regulates our daily sleep pattern. The amount and quality of light reaching the pineal also alter with seasons, changes in the proportions of colours within. sunlight causes changes in bodily functions. Our feelings and emotions are directly affected by the balance or imbalance of hormones in the body and since they are affected by colours, they will also influence our moods and feelings.

Certain colours can calm our minds while some can stimulate mental activity, metabolic and emotional equilibrium can be restored. Colours can alleviate stress, tension, anxiety and depression and also help us deal with loneliness, frustration and grief Since colours directly links to the subconscious mind we can use it to diagnose and treat a problem at a much deeper level.
