I became interested in Vibrational/Alternative therapies because I have a son with autism who I used to take to music therapy sessions. I started to learn about other alternative therapies. I have completed Reiki 1 & 2. Colour therapy really interested me, so I decided to do a colour healing/therapy course.
So here I am, this is the next step of my journey
What is colour therapy
Colour enters our lives from the moment we are born, we are born a colour.
Colour affect us on the physical, emotional and spiritual level of our lives. Colours can be linked to mood changes, yellow and orange colours may give feelings of well being, energy or excitement.
Feeling blue is used to suggest the person is sad or alone.
Green with envy, that makes us think of jealousy.
These are well known sayings using reference to colour describing a mood or a feeling. Colour vibrations can be used to release tension and restore energy. Some of the practices used in colour therapy can be traced back to the Egyptians, greeks and roman times.
Colour therapy is based on wavelengths and vibrations, the electro-magnectic spectrum is a spectrum of visible and invisible colours.
Modern medicine uses the invisible vibrations which are at each side of the spectrum. These are called cosmic rays, gamma rays x-rays also infa-red and radio-waves .
We can only see 40% of the spectrum, it comes to earth through vibrations contained in a white light. These are the 7 colours of the rainbow red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each colour has a different vibration or wavelength, this means each colour affects our bodies differently .
Colour can be seen as a bridge to the visible and invisible worlds, because it is linked to our subconscious minds. Colour healing can be used with aroma-therapy, music-therapy and most other complimentary therapies.
Colour healing should never be used as a replacement for any ongoing serious medical treatments

The colour is determined by what type of healing is needed the candle should be cleansed and blessed.
This is called dressing the candle olive oil can be rubbed from the bottom to the top the candle this is symbolic to bring the colour out of the candle to be released into the atmosphere.
If you prefer not to use oil praying or using an affirmation will be just as effective, do not use the same candle for different things any type of candle can be used keep your intentions positive
You can use different shapes for colour healing with candles
When putting out the flame of the candle do so with strong intentions to lock in the healing the flame should not be blown out use a small cup or a candle diffuser this should be done because air and Fire are both creative forces and one should not be used to put out another.
