Animals respond very well indeed to Colour Therapy and, in my experience, often fall asleep during a treatment session and seem very reluctant to leave when their treatment is over.
Many animals do not see colour as we do, but this does not mean they are not affected by colour energies.
Animals are very sensitive to differing energies so they also pick up the varying energies of colour.
To very early human beings, colour and light was of profound importance since their very existence was regulated by light and dark and they would have been very conscious of different energies. With the advent of modern living, including artificial light, humans have become less sensitive to these energy vibrations. However, animals still retain this sensitivity today and the influences of different qualities of light still affect all living things on many levels.
Animals have similar Chakras
Animals have chakras/energy centres the same as we do and their chakras are similarly situated – given that the majority of them are more horizontal than we are - they are in very similar places. Animals do have another main chakra, which is situated over the top of the shoulder, which is called the brachial chakra. This chakra is sometimes called the key chakra since it is a powerful one and can give access to all the other chakras.
Different Energy Systems to Humans
Animals’ energy systems work rather differently from our human ones and they receive and give out energy through individual chakras and this makes them very sensitive to subtle vibrational and atmospheric changes.
In the adult human the energy enters through a chakra just above the crown and then enters our system through the crown chakra and through the pineal gland. Here it is broken down in to several coloured rays. Being focused on the head and brain, the human rational mind influences and sorts through the stimuli it receives from outside and assesses which vibrations to respond to and which we can ignore.
But, unlike adult humans, most animals have a dispersed energetic system primarily due to their bodies having horizontal rather than vertical alignment. Most land animals have a dispersed energy system, like a human baby, or a little bit like an adult who has maintained the ability to experience things through connected senses as in Synaesthesia where sound, light, colour, shape, taste, smell and touch are still inter-linked.
Some animals become stressed before a thunderstorm as they are able to pick up other types of vibrations in the air apart from electro-magnetic vibrations which we are unable to detect in the same way.
Light and Colour Energy
Light has a profound effect on all living cells since every cell is light sensitive and also gives off its own light vibration. The cells of the skin act as light filters and allow light of all frequencies to pass to the tissues and cells through the body, which of course includes the organs and glands.
Colour energy can be used to energise or balance the body's energy centres and can act as a catalyst for the body’s own healing processes. This energy can help with emotional, mental, spiritual or physical issues – colour therapy has no side effects (blood pressure), is perfectly safe whether being used for adults, children/babies or animals and can be used alongside any other therapy whether conventional medicine or another complementary therapy.
Chemical reactions occur within the cells which facilitate the cells’ functions, i.e. growth, hormone release and the “normal” functioning of each cell. For example, day and night / light and dark trigger release of different hormones relating to our body clocks and if left to nature, we would sleep when it is dark and be active when day light comes. Artificial lighting in more modern times has confused this simple reaction somewhat.
Colour Therapy is a truly natural, holistic, non invasive therapy, has no side effects, and is perfectly safe whether being used for humans or animals.
Please always remember that no complementary therapy should be considered as an alternative to proper veterinary advice.
