Color Light Illuminates My Inner World

Sep 08, 2014 09:16PM ● By Julianne Bien

The world around us is constantly illuminated by light. It’s what enables us to see color and perceive our world as lively and fascinating. Not only is color made up of various shades, tones and pigments, it is the essential energy that is basic to all life. Carried in sunlight, color is a true and honest sensation that playfully stimulates our senses and affects our psychological and physical state of being.
Color light therapy has existed and evolved throughout history. The ancient Egyptians used light and prisms to heal people. Heliotherapy, the act of curing sickness by sun exposure, was born in ancient Greece. Color light therapy helps to heal the body, mind and soul. Within all living organisms, information is communicated through color-coded broadcasts of faint light energy. All of us emit these broadcasts beneath our skin, which helps maintain our natural and active state of rhythm. Studies have shown that light is an essential ingredient to a healthy metabolism in all living creatures on Earth.
Today, color light therapy continues to help the healing process. Acupuncturists, massage therapists, bodyworkers, aromatherapists and sound therapists who incorporate energy-based modalities are at the forefront of guiding people into a state of self-healing and rejuvenation by a multitude of disciplines. Color harmonics is included on the leading edge of current color therapy methods, which utilizes a color light illuminator that enables energy carried light to efficiently support the body’s own healing potential.
When used in an energy-based practice, color harmonics can have a significant effect on the recipient by sending messages through the body as a “call to action.” While acupuncture points and reflex zones are being addressed, color can help release old memories that are trapped in the body tissue.
Lumalight specialist and acupuncturist Vanessa Cisneros, of Miami, has used color light in conjunction with tuning forks to enhance results in her sound healing sessions. She introduces this energy-based modality with a color illuminator and simply clips on a color filter to the penlight, shining it two to eight inches away from the body.
According to Cisneros, “Application of color is used to balance the aura of an individual and to stimulate a self-healing process, as well as boost energy, creating a more powerful life force.”
Cisneros introduces color light sessions to her clients and explains how incorporating this method can enhance the experience. Once the client is comfortable, she begins a dialogue with him/her. “This allows them to be more aware of their body, and allows me to have a better feeling of their current state,” she says. 
“From there,” Cisneros continues, “I consider their situation and choose the color that would be of help to them. For example, I would use shades of blue if he/she has discomfort and pain, such as headache or backache. This would help cool and calm the energy in the meridians. If energy is needed, I would choose a color, such as red for stimulation, as color’s energy travels at the speed of light and will go where it is needed. It’s all about using the colors to meet the recipient’s needs.”
Understanding and experiencing the benefits of color light therapies enhances the reassuring feeling of peacefulness and, also, provides the body with the vital information that color light offers.
