Colors have profound affects on the wearer and the beholder. Colors can be therapeutic. Meditating on colored flowers is a good way to brighten the mind. The use of colored crystals applied to specific parts of the body can clear energy blocks.

Exposure to different colored lights or surroundings can have a healing effect. Simply incorporating color in your home or office environment also has an important effect. Color should be considered when buying a new car, clothing or home to make sure that you are bringing the energy into your life that suits you.

We can consciously pick colors for their specific healing and empowering properties when choosing costumes, draping fabric for a set design, setting up a stage backdrop or painting the room we perform in.
