COLOR MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND
Colors show up in brilliant oranges and reds in a sunset or a sunrise, flowering trees, fruits and vegetables, a box of crayons or paints. Color resonates in the world around us and in the homes we live in, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear and the entertainment we watch, truly our lives revolve around COLOR. Colors can affect the way we feel and react to our world.
Color therapy can be a method of physical and emotional healing. The goal of color therapy is to balance the mind and the heart and bring integration to physiological and psychological imbalances. For instance, if you’re stressed, looking at a specific color like pink or purple can help you so that you can regain psychological balance. If you are depressed, looking at the color green can be used to invigorate you and give you increased energy. Color therapy uses the power of color to heal, energize and soothe us.
EMOTIONAL RELEASE CAN HAPPEN THROUGH COLORING
Coloring can help release heavy feelings just like writing in a journal, but instead of words, we use our ability to imagine shapes and colors instead. Coloring out heavy feelings can be very helpful for children and adults. This is included in the Emotional Super Powers book where there are pages provided to color out anger and sadness or other heavy feelings. Remember that when you or a child are coloring out heavy feelings it doesn’t have to look pretty!
COLORING CHANGES BRAIN WAVES
Coloring can change the brain waves from a beta state which is a highly focused and task orientated state and can move the brain waves into an alpha state which is a state of relaxation and healing. Moving the brain to the alpha state can help us move from feeling stressed into a more relaxed meditative state which helps the body heal.
COLORING CAN HELP WITH BONDING AND ATTACHMENT
When my youngest daughter was in a communications class in High School she was given an assignment to go home and color with one of her parents. As we colored we felt a closeness. We started talking and sharing and deciding on what colors to use and where we would color on the page. It was an experience that I have never forgotten. I have colored with my children when they were younger but not my 16 year-old and it was something that I will never forget, because it brought us closer together in the creative process and coloring helps to sync up our brain waves. Coloring together bonded us and helped us feel connected.
