Light fills the very centre of our earth in the form of fire, as the sky is filled with the light of the sun, the moon and the stars. To strengthen our own light, we can draw from the natural forces around us. The earth feeds us with the lower frequency colours, red, orange, yellow and green, which relate to physical and emotional spheres. Blue, indigo and violet are drawn from the sky, space or ether, and relate to mental and spiritual spheres. Gold feeds our male aspect absorbed from the father sun, sliver feeds the female aspect absorbed from moon and mother earth.

Right from the time of conception, colour is seen to play an important role in our lives. The following photos's were taken inside the womb of a women during the conception and development of the foetus. The images are from the the book, From Conception to Birth by Alexander Tsiara to illustrate the colour vibration images and how colour exists in a living cell.




  1. An egg (ovum) before maturation.  Alive and healthy shows
                                    all the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.






  2. Moment of conception, when sperms penetrate the egg
  (ovum). Yellow depicts light, life, fire and conception of male
  & female created by the unity of new life (foetus).




3. Days after conception, the  egg(ovum) is now fertilized and
   growth begins of the human foetus, depicted by green
   indicating growth, new life, energy, oxygen and pink- love
   to envelope and bring the soul into the process.






Depending on our state of being, we emanate colours in varying strength or weakness and if we are aware of this, we can strengthen or 'tone down' particular colours to re-establish balance.

Here are a few ways of how colour can be used for balancing and healing:

I have started with the most physical and ended with the more subtle, but no less accessible or powerful, forms of working with colour.



  Babies, especially, should be exposed to pastel colours in the first year, as these
  are the colour of their auras at that stage of their life. Bright colours tend to be too
  overwhelming.

In any situation in which you feel threatened or in fear, surround yourself in a triangle of protective white light. This is also useful to do before and after meditation. To help a person in disease or difficulty, even if they are not close by, one can imagine them surrounded by a particular colour to strengthen their energy. Terminally ill patients can be surrounded in pink and green for peace and love. These visualisations can achieve wonderful results. In my own practice, when doing a treatment with aromatherapy, pressure points and reflexology, I incorporate colour by 'breathing' it into my own body, either through my feet or head, depending on the colour I need. I then visualise it coming out of my hands and into the person I am treating, into the area of need. This is more powerful still if the client can assist by breathing the colours together with me into the area of need.


Aromatherapy oils also have affinity to colour, as they still transmit the colours of  the flower they have been extracted from.  An example is the camomile flower, the yellow essence being good for digestion and the nervous system. I have developed a range of aroma, colour sprays and oils that are useful for balancing the aura. In my experience with the South African Flower essences, the colour     of the flowers correspond to the part of the body or emotions area that need healing. The Warratah Flower Essence, for example, with its red flowers, is a remedy for fear.
