The Colour Essences
The colour essences are made at a natural clearing in Platbos where an ancient, fallen white stinkwood tree makes a perfect alter for them to catch the sun’s rays. A quartz crystal further amplifies the sun light.
The colour essences are additionally enhanced with sound energy – via chakra tuning forks – and blessings from the Archangels. These angelic beings are powerful, loving and non-denominational.
Practiced since ancient times, Colour Therapy employs the dynamic energies of colour as a therapeutic tool. Modern science is rediscovering the healing benefits of colour that the ancient civilizations of Egypt, India and China practiced in days gone by. Colour affects our way of thinking, our moods and health. Colour is light – visible radiant energy of varying wave lengths.
When the energy of colour enters our body, it stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands. The production of certain hormones is subsequently set in motion and these in turn affect a variety of physiological responses. These physical responses have been measured in blind people, leading to the conclusion that colour is perceived by the body as energy vibrations.
Knowledge of the different colour qualities can assist us in utilizing their properties to improve and enhance our sense of wellbeing.
