What Is Color Energy and How to Apply it to Daily Life

What Is Color Energy and How to Apply it to Daily Life


Many experts believe and can prove that the most important energy source currently is light, and all the colors visible and invisible to the human eye (entire spectrum of colors) is derived from light. Sunlight, which contains all the wavelengths, consists of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we depend on to exist on this planet.

For a more scientific explanation provided by Colour Energy to shine light on how color energy concept works is this: "Light flows through our eyes and triggers hormone production, which influences our entire complex biochemical system. This biochemical system then affects our being. And light does not travel alone. Light travels with other energies as illustrated on the right."

The colors of the visible light, or common rainbow consist of seven different frequencies and these frequencies have been found not only in human bodies, but prove to have different effects on the body. Light flows through our optic nerves and triggers hormone production, which influences the entire biochemical system. This biochemical system affects our being at the most fundamental levels.
