Colour effects us physically and emotionally. This enlarged new edition of Theo Gimbel's classic workbook shows how everyone can use colour for health and healing. We are surrounded by colour but are rarely aware of the profound effect that it has on us. Colour can affect us physically and emotionally and it has been proved by many that the right colours can positively benefit our health and vitality. This book explains the effects that each colour has on us, and how we can use them for different sorts of healing - for example: red is powerful and strong, it can counteract low blood pressure, impotence and fatigue; orange is joyful, cheery and an anti-depressant; turquoise signifies purity and calmness and will help with nervous tension - it also has anti-inflammatory properties. The book explains how colour therapy works, and shows readers: the history of colour therapy; how to develop your sense of colour; how to use colour therapy for a range of requirements; how colour therapy works with auras and the chakras; the healing power of light - coloured and white; how colour helps us understand the earth's different elements, and to appreciate the order, spirit and meaningful wholeness inherent in being.
