Color Meditation for Stress Relief

Tuesday 03 November, 2015.

Take a bath every morning!

A color bath… with a Color Meditation!

…And anytime during the day when you feel the need!

I was given very good advice by a healer once – I was told that when I felt stressed, tense, emotional, tired…in fact, any feeling of strain…I should take a light shower. My first thought was that I don’t have time to run home, shower, dry myself and get dressed at odd times during the day.

Silly me!

She meant a shower of light

Literally stand still for a few moments, close my eyes and imagine/visualize a shower of light pouring down and over me… imagine the light enveloping and swirling around me, penetrating my whole body…

Try It! It is a relaxing, calming and energizing exercise. And it makes sense…

At the risk of sounding “new age”, we are made up of vibrations. And light is just that – vibrations! Very simply, each color of the light spectrum has it’s own vibration and those vibrations interact with and affect our personal vibrations…

Yellow and reds are stimulating; blues and greens are calming.

Color can have a profound effect on your mood, vitality and well-being!

Color therapy with a trained professional involves the use of colors to improve physical, emotional and mental health. But you can do it yourself as part of your stress relief program…

Color Meditation

Sit comfortably with your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths and relax.

  • Imagine a ball of golden light above your head. Visualize the ball of light slowly descending through your head until it fills your entire body.
  • Metaphorically, think of it as if you are seated in the middle of a beach ball and the color completely fills that imaginary space around you. Imagine that this light is cleansing and healing your spirit.
  • Practice this until it becomes familiar to you.
  • Repeat, visualizing a ball of red light. Continue slowly through the color spectrum – orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – until you feel completely relaxed.

You will probably find that some colors are easier for you to visualize than others.

Researchers recognize that colors bring about emotional reactions in individuals.

Notice what each color feels like…

You can expect each color to feel different – people often experience a correspondence between colors and physical or emotional feelings.

We all know the sayings.. “Feeling blue”, “Saw red”, “Black mood”, “In the pink”…

This is an Active Visualization technique which is different from Passive Visualization.

I also like to use Color Meditation for a specific purpose…

What do I mean?…

Identify which color you feel you “need” in order to balance your physical, emotional or mental state. Have a look at the diagram below for ideas…

Then do a Color Meditation using just that color…

If you feel you need inspiration for a project that you are working on – “bathe” yourself in yellow or orange. And it need only take a few minutes; anywhere, anytime! Visualizing the color blue has a calming and soothing effect when your temper is frayed…

And excellent for controlling the effects of stress!

As with all relaxation and stress relief techniques – the more you practice the better the effect on your overall health!

So Have Fun With Color Meditation and use your imagination to make color work for YOU!
