A rainbow of healing light

Explosive colors and lights are displayed all around us during the winter season. Now is the time to enjoy the hearth-side, tree lights, window and house displays.  Many streets use decorative lighting from dramatic scenes to soft luminaries.


I believe color is healing to our soul. As snow falls and winter landscapes shape a world that is naked and decreasing in sunlight daily, bursts of colored lights can illuminate our surroundings and energize us from the inside out.

“Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All the primary colors reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties.” http://healing.about.com/cs/colortherapy/a/aa_colortherapy.htm. Color is used in massage rooms and hospital rooms to create an atmosphere conducive for healing.

Color creates different responses in different people. What colors give you a feeling of expansiveness, or a feeling of creativity, or a mood of introspection and solitude? Some colors create an environment of peace and serenity while others create a space of nurturing and safety. Often times the colors we are most attracted to relate to areas of our life that need some balance.

How have you used color to improve your day?

  1. I like to use color to help spark my creativity and to help me stay focused. It is also great for getting in the mood to eat, or sleep… I find that having a candle close by when I write is a great tool – when I gaze away from the computer screen in thought and my eyes rest on the flickering flame it ignites my imagination and I write better? 🙂


  2. Off the top of my head, I would suggest you contact the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) and see when their next conference is and if you can sell your paintings to massage therapists to use in their healing rooms. They have many vendors come to these conferences. I would love to see one. Can you send me a picture?
