Healing Paint Colors for Your Ayurveda Type

Healing Paint Colors for Your Ayurveda Type

Now this is a truly healthy and healing paint: The paint itself is as pure as  possible and the 108 colors are designed to promote harmony and balance using  East Indian Ayurvedic color therapy. All this from a company that has been on  the leading edge of pure, green, safe products since the 1970s!  Mouse over the  108 colors chosen with this ancient wisdom in mind to see which colors resonate  with you and what they mean.

Visit the AFM  Safecoat site and click one at a time on the Ayurvedic types listed on the  left, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. You will see a list of colors to the right of the  picture of a room. Move your mouse over each color name to turn the room to that  color.

After you have found the colors that speak to you,  try this fun quiz to see which type you think you are from reading words! For me, I never figured out my Ayurvedic type from reading text about them,  or from all the quizzes  I have taken, but it was clear as a bell from looking  at the colors on the AFM Safecoat site.

The 5 Healing Colors

The 5 Healing Colors

According to Chinese medicine, the “Five Healing Colors” can purify and heal  all the pathways in the body, and the colors are traditionally used to harmonize  the organs. When you visualize these universal energetic color forces, the  organs become purified.

Even if you don’t have organs in stress, this is a wonderfully cleansing and  preventative exercise for your whole body:

Use this guided meditation using any one of the organs using the appropriate  color:

1.  Sit calmly but alertly.

2.  Pay attention to the calm place behind  your mid-brow.

3.  Think of something you love, and relax.

4.  Bring  your attention to the organ in need of attention.

5.  Picture the organ,  feeling the love you experienced in #3.

6.  Picture the organ as a rose that  is the color required, and imagine the rose slowly opening. Repeat until the  color radiates through and from the organ.

7.  Breath out the colored light

 

Blue:  The healing color of the kidneys.

Red:  The healing color of the heart.

Green:  The healing color of the liver.

White:  The healing color of the lungs.

Yellow:  The healing color of the spleen.
