Do you need more colour in your life? Have you tried Colour Meditation?
Colour meditation can be done all by yourself without special equipment or expensive light devices. It might be used for personal healing, improving your mood or even to get more energy!
It’s thought that different colours have an effect on the way you feel, think and heal yourself. Colour meditation is used to heighten your susceptibility to the effects of the colours.
Colour therapy meditation encompasses a number of different techniques for your consideration. One technique involves sitting in quiet contemplation while focusing on a single color, whether on a small card, paint on a wall or an item you see. Alternatively, you can use your imagination while in a state of deep rumination, picturing the colour you choose enveloping and filling your whole body. As each level of the seven chakras in the aura has a different color, some people like to use colour therapy meditation techniques that include them all.
You might use coloured silks or scarves to drape and immerse the body in various colours. Or visualise colours through a guided mediation.
Visualisation can be really effective in helping you to relax because it allows your mind to focus on an image (in this case a colour) and to let other thoughts fade away.
You might use a relaxation script which allows you to relax through visualising or imagining each colour of the rainbow.

Here’s something else to use … a simple video (Thanks to ZenDen) which takes us through the colour spectrum in 10 minutes. It may not be ideal sitting in front of a screen but if you have no other colour devices in your life, it’s an easy way to ‘DIY colour therapy’. 😉
Just set to full screen and meditate on all the colours of the rainbow – and more! Enjoy!
