Colour healing: What is your favourite colour telling you?

Updated: Jan 29, 2019

#Colour has the power to #heal and to heal quickly. If you have ever found yourself repeatedly drawn to certain colours – for your clothes or your home – then this is your subconscious telling you that you need the quality of that colour in your energy. Use the #Tama-Do colour guide below to discover why you are drawn to certain colours and what they mean for healing you.

The beauty of nature's rainbow

Each #colour vibrates at a different frequency and it is the power of the vibration that so effectively acts on our energy body to balance, heal, strengthen and gift us qualities that may be missing. The penetration of colour is faster than sound and movement which makes it extremely effective as a healing tool.

"When we have opened again to the full spectrum of Light, through the rainbow, we will remember our true essence and know that we are one - and have always been one - with the Light" (Terres Unsoeld, Fabien Maman, Patricia Janusz)

The power of colour on the cell

in 1981, Fabien Maman conducted evolutionary sound/cellular experiments in Jussieu University, Paris, showing how the energy field of healthy cells changed shape and colour according to the impact of sound played to them. He discovered that when cells felt a 'vibratory affinity' with a certain note, the cells' aura would transform into a shape of vibrant colours such as magenta and turquoise. Which started a path of discovering the effect colours have on our chakras and on our soul.

The 7 Rays

Rainbow colours act as doorways and corridors to consciousness, offering infinite wisdom and power. They are each an expression of the qualities of the source (or God, or the Divine, whichever term sits best with you) and each brings us a special gift. Each colour, though part of the whole, has its own unique spiritual qualities, messages and wisdom to help us to reveal our Soul Potentials and remember our Divine Essence.

Tama-Do colours and their meanings

If you are repeatedly drawn to a certain colour, it is likely that you need that colour because you are deficient in its energy. So also take note of the meaning of your favourite colour's complimentary colour (the opposite) to see what you need MORE of in your life.
