Part 7: Indigo Color Therapy, The Brow Chakra, and Indigo Decorating Ideas
Color therapy is a form of holistic healing that has been used for thousands of years to treat physical and emotional issues. Also known as chromotherapy, color therapy is regaining popularity today. According to ayurveda, the 5,000 year old traditional medicine of India, every color has certain healing energies. By using color therapy techniques when you are decorating your home or office, you bring those healing energies into your space and enhance or diminish certain qualities.
In this post we will take a deeper look into the color Indigo, The Brow “Third Eye” Chakra, how indigo color therapy can effect the mind and body, and how to integrate indigo color therapy into your home decorating.
Indigo and The Brow “Third Eye” Chakra
Indigo is a color that many of us would call navy blue. It is related to the third eye, or brow chakra and affects intuition, enhances a sense of responsibility and has a calming, sedative affect.
Ajna (along with Bindu, is also known as the third eye chakra) is linked to the pineal gland which may inform a model of its envisioning. The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland that produces the hormone melatonin which regulates sleep and waking up. Ajna is symbolised by a lotus with two petals, and corresponds to the colour white, indigo or deep blue. Ajna’s key issues involve balancing the higher & lower selves and trusting inner guidance. Ajna’s inner aspect relates to the access of intuition. Emotionally, Ajna deals with clarity on an intuitive level.
Because of its sedative affect, indigo is not usually a good choice for rooms where there needs to be activity. It works quite well in quiet areas, though, particularly bedrooms or studies.
Too much indigo can cause a feeling of loneliness or depression. Use orange to balance these affects.
