Some Basic Science about Color & Light:
Sunlight that reaches the earth’s surface contains UV, IR and Visible Light (which contains all of the colors in the spectrum)
All visible light is between 400 & 700 NM
IR (InfraRed = Below Red Light. Not visible to the human eye)
Red (longest wavelength in the visible light spectrum)
Violet (shortest wavelength in the visible light spectrum
UV (UltraViolet = Above Violet Light. Not visible to the human eye & includes UVA, UVB & UVC)
How Do We Perceive Light?:
There are three things that can happen to a light wave:
It can be reflected, absorbed, or transmitted. This is determined by the object that the wave hits, and that will give it its color. For an object to be black, it means that all the wavelengths of light hitting that object are absorbed; no light is reflected. Solid objects, for the most part, will reflect light, and transparent objects will transmit light through them.
Why Do Objects Appear to be Certain Colors?:
The color of anything depends on the type of light sent to our eyes; light is necessary if we are to have any perception of color at all. An object is “colored,” as stated above, because of the light it reflects-all other colors are absorbed into that specific object. So then, an apple appears red because it reflects red light back to our eyes.
White light from the sun contains all the possible color variations.
Yet, the human eye can only respond to certain colors and wavelengths, and not everyone sees the same colors or exact same shades of a color. Our ability to perceive color correctly does not matter in terms of being able to absorb the appropriate color frequencies, however. Even color blind people and blind people can benefit in the same ways from color therapy.
How Do We Absorb Color Energy?
We absorb color energy in 3 ways:
Via our EYES;
We also absorb this healing energy directly through our SKIN;
As well as through our HUMAN ENERGY FIELD.
