Nature is colour, the entire spectrum of colour comes from sunlight
I have chosen to use coloured bottles to charge water in the sun for two reasons. One is to add a colour lift to my day and the second is to balance my chakra energy centers. I remember studying how colors influence on our thoughts, moods and behaviors by stimulating the pituitary and pineal glands in school. For example, we learned that red stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, while white and blue color stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system. The energy vibration of color is used to enhance and balance our physical, emotional and spiritual state. Colour is energy and each cell in our body requires this energy to stay vital.
Colours vibrates at different frequency rate that compliment our energy centers or chakras. Candace Pert, Ph.D, a medical researcher found that areas in the body that are particularly rich in neuropeptides correspond to the location of the seven chakra centers. Neuropeptides are natural healing chemicals.
Rainbow Colour Therapy is based on the positive effects of using colour on the complimentary Chakra energy center for therapeutic purposes to balance the body’s healing powers. Susceptibility to disease conditions increases if the chakras are not balanced or are blocked. Using specific colour rays can be absorbed by the chakra centers and restore its vitality.
The word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”. In both Buddhism and Hinduism the chakras are represented by colourful wheels along the spine from the base to the top of the head. The size and brightness of the wheels relate to an individuals development, physical condition, disease, stress and energy levels. The chakra wheel colours are violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.
You can drink or inhale colours according to ancient Indian scripture. It is an age-old therapy, codified in the Atharva Veda as Surya Kiran Chikitsaâ, healing with the sun’s rays.

The different coloured bottles reflect the crown, eye, voice, heart, solar plexus, belly and root chakras.
