When we speak of color, we mean energy waves. Every color, each with its own frequency, is a form of energy. Light is the closest thing to pure energy that we can identify. Light carries color and electromagnetic energy; therefore, it can impact the energy field of the human body. When applied to the human body, light will provide all deficient energies since every color is associated with a quantity of energy. Colors have a profound effect on us at all levels—physical, mental and emotional. If our energy levels are blocked or depleted, then our body cannot function properly, and this in turn can lead to a variety of problems at different levels. Light moves in waves of varying lengths and, as each color has a different wavelength, we sense them all individually. Different colors in the spectrum correspond with the body’s inner vibrations. If your vibrations are off-kilter, color can harmonize and rebalance them if treated with the right colors.
The colors used in the Harmonic Egg are dependent upon the type of ailment you are trying to correct. For example, blue or purple lights are anti-inflammatory and calming. Green can be used to purify and cleanse. White and yellow light stimulates the lymphatic system. Red light is invigorating, and good for heart and blood circulation. Although red is energizing and invigorating, it may cause agitation if you are already tense.
In the 1940’s, S.V. Krakov, a Russian scientist began to examine color vision and its relationship to the autonomic nervous system. His experiments showed red light to stimulate the sympathetic area of the autonomic nervous system and blue light to stimulate the parasympathetic area of the autonomic nervous system.
His research was later confirmed in 1958 by Robert Gerad. Gerad thoroughly researched the whole area of light, color and their psycho-physiological influences.
Gerad’s tests revealed that warm colors were beneficial in subjects with depression and neurasthenia. Warm colors also increased muscle tone or blood pressure in hypertensive individuals. Exposure to warm colors consistently showed a more pronounced pattern of stimulation to the autonomic nervous system. Cool colors showed opposite effects by acting as a relaxant and tranquilizer for anxious individuals, lowering blood pressure, and providing relief from tension, and alleviating muscle spasms. Cool colors also proved to be an aid of insomnia. Gerad’s research and testing showed that all colors affect all humans both psychologically and physiologically in a specific manner.
