So Many Ways to Use Color

Enjoy this article I wrote for Les Nouvelles Esthetiques & Spa
(Published Jan 2007)

"I cannot pretend to be impartial about the color.
I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and I am genuinely sorry for the poor browns."
--Winston Churchill

Is Sir Winston speaking about the colors in environment, the colors of personality and attitude, the colors of food, or the colors of skincare? Brown is not a color in the fleeing, magical moments of glimpsing a rainbow. As life is fleeting too, don’t be a poor brown. Be colorful! Incorporate color everywhere to live life to its fullest.  

In nature’s perfection, color is perfect balance.

Color is balance "outwardly" in your environment along with "inwardly" in your personality and balancing health with the foods that you eat. Apply the highlights:

Outwardly: Use color in your Environment to:

  • Motivate/Stimulate: Red
  • Stabilize/Secure: Yellow
  • Create Abundance White
  • Calm/Mental Clarity: Blue
  • Grow/Produce: Green

These colors and energies are based upon Chinese "medicine:" the five-thousand-year old, self-contained system, rooted in the perfection of nature. The five "environmental" colors are based upon the cosmological theory of the Five Elements. This is the perfect cycle of creation: Fire/Red produces Earth (ash), Earth/Yellow creates Metal (minerals), Meta/White holds Water, Water/Blue nurtures Wood, and Wood/Green feeds Fire.

For good health and supportive surroundings, these five elements holistically balance the organs and meridians in your body (acupuncture), the food that you eat (Chinese medicine), and your environments (Feng Shui).

Decoratively, bring the perfection of nature inside to create your desires. Han you use the Feng Shui colors in your home to support your goals? Remember, your home influences professional success. How can you incorporate the colors in your salon too?

Inwardly: Use color to balance your Personality and Attitude

Body: Supports Physical Attributes and Confidence: Red, Orange, and Yellow
Mind: Develops Mental Qualities and Insight: Blue and Indigo
Spirit: Deepens Spirituality: Violet

The Glue! Connects Love to all Human Aspirations: Green

My new book ColorAlchemy takes science and traditional color-theory to a new level. Per my first review, ColorAlchemy is an easy, yet profound universal method for self growth that deepens your personal understanding, stimulates happiness, and enriches social contributions."  

Science has proven that your ability to see is because of the vibrational frequencies of color. Fascinatingly, these energies are also the components of all that exists (the chemistry of the periodic table) from the structure of the smallest molecule to the vastness of the stars. When you apply the symbolic, yet vibrational Mind, Body, and Spiritual attributes of these color frequencies (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet), you incorporate the inexhaustible origin of energy for your infinite source of personal power. It’s Awesome!

Right NOW, take a deep breath visualizing any color that intuitively feels right. Notice how your quiet pause instantaneously changes your disposition. Experiment with breathing all seven, rainbow colors and be sensitive to experience how each influences you differently. Stressed out by a challenge with spa business or a problematic client? Take a big swig of Blue, Indigo or Violet! Need to get your motor running? Wearing a Red shirt and taking a few Red breaths does the trick. 

Inwardly: Use color in Foods for balanced nutrition.

Similar to Living ColorAlchemy through your thoughts and behavior, David Heber, MD, PhD, in his book What Color Is Your Diet, suggests eating the rainbow colors automatically provides nutritional balance. Combined with Dr. Nicholas Periconne’s "prescription for curing wrinkles," colorful eating promotes healthy longevity and younger-looking skin through antioxidant production and vitamins.

Consider how it feels after you eat grey "prison rations" and how great you feel when you eat the colors of the rainbow! Tip: When preparing food, be the creator of a beautiful, colorful plate! 

Inwardly and Outwardly:
Use color with micro-current technology for anti-aging skincare.

Color influences everything in your life and exists in every second. You can even experience color with your eyes closed. Tip: Pay attention to the colors on the back of your eye lids to help with meditation.

If this mini colorful lesson wasn’t enough to maintain good health, to keep your spirits high, and to make sure you are not a "poor brown," color also lifts and improves the quality of your skin too!

As far back as Cleopatra’s beauty, color was used for healing. You already know that LED treatments are effective because each color penetrates different layers of the skin. Blue treats the surface and helps heal acne while Red goes deeper to stimulate cellular regeneration.

But, did you know this about "Color Medicine?"

All colors penetrate the body and heal according to the vibration of the individual color, depth of penetration, and specific areas of the body. The chemical composition of the human body is also composed of periodic table chemistry. Individual parts of the body, each with its specific function, frequency, and health affliction, responds to each color vibration differently.All colors penetrate the body and heal according to the vibration of the individual color, depth of penetration, and specific areas of the body.

From Dr. Dinsha P. Ghadiali’s spectro-chrome therapy in the late 1800'sto modern micro-current technology, results with non-invasive, color healing is becoming more perfected. For anti-aging, skincare purposes, I discovered the Energy Light Rejuvenation (ELR) machine that uses micro current to not only lift and tighten with stimulation but creates pathways for the deepest penetration of Color Medicine to maximize collagen production and cellular regeneration.

If I have excited you with color, paint your Feng Shui, develop your inner rainbow with ColorAlchemy, savor your colorful cuisine, and look younger with the ELR machine. You always look and feel better being a colorful person!
