The concept of using color to address disease and imbalances in the body has been found dating back to the ancient civilizations of India, Egypt, and China. Research today has shown the effects of color on the brain are real, for example the moderating influence of a specific shade of pink when feelings of anger or agitation arise. Colors, it has been noted, effect us on the physical, mental, and emotional levels.
Research since the 1940s has also shown how our selection of and reaction to certain colors is an indication of ongoing concerns, feelings, and issues in our lives. Clues to our motivations and emotions can be discerned via our preferences for energy patterns represented by specific color frequencies. Sometimes our feelings and motivating patterns lie just outside our day-to-day awareness. Or, we may have some inkling of their role in our life, but we prefer to avoid understanding or acting upon their significance.
Our color selections provide an objective degree of insight. Color preferences can help unlock these partially hidden or avoided patterns and desires. When these factor are better understood our life story can take on new meaning and direction.
My preferred approach is the use of the full-length, complete version of the Lüscher Color Test, a well-researched and respected assessment method used throughout the world. I have studied the Lüscher Color Test with Dr. Andreas Edelmann.
