Discovering Mystical Powers with the Colors of Nature...


With the Violet of the Lavender, I want to spread joys wherever I wander…

With the Indigo of the Ocean, I want to break free my emotions…

With the Blue of the Sky I want to fly high…

With the Green of the Tree, I want my spirit to be free…

With the Yellow of the Sunshine, I want to make people around me smile…

With the Orange of the Leaves, I want to dilute the grieves…

With the Red of the Roses, I want to be with my loved ones and see world’s amuses…

With the "Colors of Nature", I want to admire the beauty of the World,

With the wonderful Rainbow, I want to see more wonders beyond the Earth…

I want to learn, explore, discover and grow…
~Jyotika Rajput Mehra Poetry
Colors of Nature...
With this post I wish to share the fascinating facts about the “Seven Colours of Nature” through the phenomenon called Colour Therapy (also known as Chromotherapy, Cromatherapy or Colourology). The initiators of discovery are from the ancient cultures of Egypt, China and India.

[PS: I never knew the significance of colours until I was introduced to this phenomenal concept. The information here is just a brief introduction to Colour Therapy.]

Originated from the magnanimity of Mother Nature, “Colour” is actually a form of visible light of varying wave lengths. It is an “energy” impacting each single living cell in this universe and beyond. It’s incredible healing properties balance out the energy in all the living beings, thereby curing all kinds of ailments.

You will be absolutely amazed to know how the universal energy of colours co-relates with the energy inside us! All living beings radiate an electro-magnetic field around their bodies, also called "Aura". 

This aura can be positive or negative based upon how strong are the energy centres (i.e. the Chakras in our body controlling mental, physical,emotional and spiritual well-being). Each energy centre is associated with different set of characteristics and attributes of a living being.

Did you know? The sets of characteristics appear to be more in human beings than in any other life form.

With the pace of time and sedentary life style, it is observed that the energy centres in the body experience blockages, and hence tend to become weak. This is the reason for all the ill-effects on mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health of a person. 

In the world of wellness, Colour Therapy is widely used to open the blocked energy centres and safeguard the health. The spectrum of seven Colours resonates with the seven prime Chakras in the human body. 

Each colour denotes and stimulates the energy at respective chakra level:
