Choose the color you feel is most appropriate for your needs. Here’s a quick list: Healing Colors
For this meditation either sit in a chair or stand. Imagine an egg shaped bubble around you.Breathe in deeply from your nose imagining that color entering your feet and filling your entire body. When you exhale image the color exiting your body into your visualized egg shaped bubble. Continue to do this until the egg shaped bubble is filled with the color.
When you are complete take a few moments to come back into the room.
- If you can find a light bulb in your color of choice, you can bathe yourself and the room with color.
- If no light bulb is available, consider putting colored cellophane over the window. Use your imagination and creativity.
- Find a piece of cloth, paper, or other object in the required color. Spend time before the meditation staring at it, taking in the color.
- Wear clothing, or cover yourself with a blanket or sheet that is the color you’ve chosen. Alternatively, you could wrap ribbon or yarn around your wrists.
- Drink water that has been charged with the color: Fill a glass bottle with water, wrap it with colored tissue paper or cellophane and set it in the sun for several hours.
After the meditation:
- Eat some food of the same color.
- For example: Green beans, Red cherries, Purple plums, Blue berries…
For best results, the meditation should be repeated twice a day until the symptoms begin to subside. After that, you can gradually taper off – paying attention to your body’s response.
If you feel that you have taken in too much of one color, you can easily balance yourself with a meditation on green, and/or black and white.

Here are some simple, practical ways to use color for healing and to enhance your life and circumstances:
Fill a ruby red colored glass with water and set it outside beneath the morning sun for two hours. Bring it inside and let it warm to room temperature and then slowly sip it. Visualize the water turning red as it flows down your throat and into your stomach. Since red rules energy, this is a terrific color cure for depression. It will also help shrink cancerous tumors.
If you want to come across as a bold and dynamic person, wear a red scarf or a tie. This is also a useful strategy for a social occasion when you feel nervouse about meeting new people.
Sit outside, slightly shaded from the sun, and visualize the sun’s rays pouring the color orange into your body. Imagine it seeping into your pores and soaking into your internal organs. Like red, orange rules energy, and this is an excellent treatment for sexual impotency and digestive ailments.
In times of stress, or after a shock or a surprise, wearing shades of orange can help the body to return to a state of balance.
Sit outside, slightly shaded from the sun, and visualize yellow sunlight streaming into your head and brain. Yellow rules the mind, so if you need to prepare for an upcoming exam, this is an excellent intellectual stimulator.
When working at a computer use a yellow mouse mat to improve your concentration and stay alert.
Fill a green glass with water and set it outside in the morning sun. Let the sun’s rays heat the water for two hours. Bring it inside and let it warm to room temperature. Slowly sip the water. Green calms the nerves. If you have an important speech to give or an important project at work to complete, this is an excellent tranquilizer.
When there is a sense of thwarted ambition, restriction or being trapped by external circumstances, surrounding yourself with greens, or taking a walk in green gardens will restore equilibrium.
At sunrise, sit in a comfortable chair. Straighten your spine and close your eyes. Visualize a blue ray coming down from the ceiling and into your head. Imagine it traveling down your neck, through your arms, down your stomach and into your legs. Like green, blue calms your emotions, but it also soothes a romantic heartbreak or the grief of losing a loved one.
Blue will help the easy flow of communication whether it is with other people or listening to your own thoughts and feelings. To help remember a speech, write your notes on blue paper.
Use the color purple to heal wounds. If you have a wound, broken bones or pain, imagine the color purple seeping down into those areas. Feel its warming power. Purple also connects you with your spiritual center, so if you feel disconnected from your spirit, imagine breathing in a purple cloud, and imagine it totally filling your body.
To find peace for reflection, look up at the clear night sky. Contemplation and deep meditation come easier in the indigo depths of night. Night-time is often when inspirations and solutions to problems naturally arise.
White has the ability to clear away all clutter, all extraneous noise. Fresh starts and new beginnings all benefit from its energy. Looking at a picture of snow-clad mountains brings clarity and freshness to a mind that feels crowded.
In any aggressive or threatening situation, or where there are simple misunderstandings leading to anger, visualizing pink around everyone can help to calm the mood and reduce tension.

Our instinctive emotional response to color can tell us a lot about ourselves. It reflects back to us how we are functioning. It can show life-long tendencies, immediate situations or a potential direction in personal development.
Sometimes certain colors stay with us as favorites for many years. This is reflected in the colors we choose to paint our home, inside and out, and the predominant colors in our wardrobe. It is possible to interpret these color preferences through their known correspondences to our physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual state.
Given a range of colors to choose from, the process of self-reflection and self-revelation can begin. The simplest approach is to make spontaneous choices:
- Which color do you like the most?
- Which color do you like the least?
The color you like the most will, as likely as not, be present in your home or in your clothes. It may also be a color that you need to help you in a current situation. By looking at the full range of correspondences for that color, you may get insight into a new direction in life. However, if the color you have chosen is an absolute favorite and you have no desire to reflect on other choices, you may have become stuck in particular habit patterns. Again, look at the correspondences for that color to see what those habits might be.
The color you like least will suggest areas of your life that may require attention and healing. Each color has positive as well as negative attributes, so it is a good idea to bring the positive energy of a color you dislike into your life to create balance. Do this through new activities, the choice of food, by wearing that color in clothing or adding it to your surroundings.
