According to Cynthia C. Whitehouse in her book The Rainbow Guide to Color Energy, colors are essentially light energy or fluctuating vibrations of light. I have always been fascinated with color and the impact color has in my world. There are days I instinctively gravitate to light, bright colors, and others when I find dark, muted colors more comforting. Colors are the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. But color seems so much more than a scientific term.
Color seems to be an essential expression of parts of me that I cannot communicate through my understanding of the English language. There have been times during certain meditation sessions that I’ve experienced colors I cannot name or explain. Other times, color just seems to wrap around me as if I’m in a cloak visible to only me. Other times, I will see a cloud of color surrounding an individual I’m talking with and this cloud is so distracting, I have a difficult time following the conversation because my attention is wanting to focus on the color instead! Color can create a fun and non-threatening way to expand our understanding of our environment – just take a brief moment to enjoy the unique colors of your world.
