Using Colour to Awaken Creativity and Healing is the “tagline” that I chose for my Abstract Energy ART creative business venture because it is exactly what I did to bring about the necessary changes that I so desired in me, my health and my life.
I basically fell in love with colour and allowed such colours to awaken the creative spirit that had been unfairly locked away by the dreaded ‘Pain Demon’ which had for too long taken over my being.
It was once I was able to feel the freedom that came with experimenting with colour and colours, that I was then able to absolve my Pain Demon from his powerful hold and empower creative expression and artistic merit into the forefront of my life where it belonged.
A creative person who does not create is one full of miserable pain and angst.
I was beginning to see my bone pain as well as my Pain Demon/s in the artwork pieces that I was creating; which were and still are so very different from the artwork pieces that I first painted.
Not only was I changing, but the way I painted was changing through being empowered to create and self-heal.
Empowered To Create
Colour Imagery (or Visualization) provides a valuable indication of and insight into the nature and locations of energy blockings within the body – not only of existing tensions and pain but also of potential pains.
Visualization Imagery can also be used to relax these tensions and pains as well as to promote and regulate the healthy flow of energy within the body.
It can also be used to modify pain and is a valuable modality to know, not only in assessing but also managing and treating pain.
It is no coincidence that the primary colours that I use when painting my Abstract Energy Art are the same as the seven Chakra Colours of the physical body.
The body’s Chakra (whirling/spinning wheels of energy) Colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and indigo.
Most illnesses develop in the emotional, mental or spiritual body long before they show up as physical symptoms with Stress being a major contributor of ill health.
Colours can be and are used to balance energy, aid creativity and learning, release blocks and help alleviate physical, emotional and mental conditions.
The subtle forces of the human body Chakra System can be enhanced by Holistic Modalities such as meditation or by the using the relevant colour in dress, light or environment.
In this way colour contributes to general well-being and assists with and contributes to conventional healing methods.
Each chakra is multi-layered and has lots of colours within them but only one colour dominates a particular chakra and each chakra colour has its own healing purpose and meaning and I will list these down below.
RED – Root/Base Chakra
Energizes the feet, legs, pelvis, hip joints, base of the spine, prostrate, testes and urogenital tract.
It stimulate physical activity and vitality, feelings of security, stability, self-confidence and warmth.
ORANGE – Sacral Chakra
Energizes the liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and bladder.
It stimulates the metabolism, digestion, detoxification, immunity to disease, physical and emotional energies, sexuality, athletic performance and physical appetites and regulates the sugar and fluid balance of the body.
YELLOW – Solar Plexus Chakra
Energizes the adrenal glands, the sympathetic nervous system and thereby the muscles, heartbeat, digestion and circulation.
It stimulates the digestive tract, mental clarity, verbal reasoning and will power.
GREEN – Heart Chakra
Energizes the thymus gland.
It stimulates the heart, lungs, bronchia, arms, hands, skin, secondary circulation and the immune system. It promotes positive feelings, compassion and sensitivity.
LIGHT BLUE – Throat Chakra
Energizes the thyroid gland and thereby the metabolism of the body’s temperature control.
It stimulates the voice, self-expression, communication, personal responsibility and hearing.
DARK BLUE/INDIGO – Third Eye Chakra
Energizes the pineal gland.
It stimulates the lower brain, the central nervous system and the endocrine system – notably the hormones serotonin and melatonin.
It thereby stimulates hormonal activity throughout the body, unconscious processes, imagination, insight, intuition and psychic abilities.
PURPLE/VIOLET – Crown Chakra
Energizes the pituitary gland.
It stimulates the upper brain and the nervous system as well as creativity, inspiration, aestheticism, artistic ability and high ideals.
So just remember this one tip from me … it is the colour that you are drawn to the most whether it is the paint colour that you choose or the colour of the clothes that you wear, etc that will be the colour that you are needing to help you clear any energy blockages and medicate you to better health and well-being.
