Note from Gladys:

Using green forever can mean we are unwilling to move, or make changes. Introducing different colours into our lives means we acknowledge change, and its positive possibilities’.

Colour Therapy – How can I use it?
You don’t need sight to use colour therapy. Of course we need to know how to go about it. Many sighted people don’t see colours during visualisation or meditation. You can use imagery, or if that isn’t an option, we have our imagination, and here’s a quick, uplifting happiness boost. If you can’t picture sunshine, imagine it is there.
‘Ben Renshaw, co-director of the Happiness Project, says many of his clients associate sunshine with feeling happy’
He writes:
‘Whenever you need a quick boost, just picture the sun shining in your mind’

Other Ways to Use Colour

Mostly, colour therapy is free or inexpensive. Here are three easy everyday ways to choose from. Wear it-Eat it-Drink it
Will I wear it? Why reach for a blue shhirt today yet tomorrow it has to be yellow? It’s colour therapy, and your own choice.
The materials which carry colour energy are natural ones.
Step into colour, step into your little cotton socks. The colour we put next to our skin, has the best therapeutic effect.
Will I eat it? Why was red tomatoes a must today, yet yesterday it had to be a green salad? Yes, our body tells us what vitamins and minerals we need. At the same time, are we taking in colour for other reasons too? Is it possible the colours of the foods we want are also the colours we need for balancing our positive and negative energies at that specific moment?
Will I drink it? Solarise ordinary tap water. Take a clear glass tumbler. Put in a small crystal or mineral of your colour choice. Fill the glass with tap water. Stand it on a window sill, in the light.
The stronger the sunlight, the quicker the water takes on the colour vibrations of the crystal or mineral. Fifteen minutes is enough in strong sunlight. All day may be necessary if its not sunny. Store the solarised water in a plastic or glass bottle, in the fridge. It should last
for a long time. Use in hot or cold drinks, soups and so on. Alternatively, sip it at intervals. Useful for inflammation such as a sore throat, a piece of turquoise or green jade would be a good choice for throat, chest and lung infections for example.
See the colour properties for help with choices.

You can add Bach Flower Remedies to solarised water. These remedies, discovered by surgeon Edward Bach, also stand alone for treating emotions and the personality. See the list of thirty eight remedies, plus the Rescue remedy, for choices.
