Color Therapy

Hello! If you missed our meeting this morning at Le Peep restaurant on Ken Pratt Blvd in Longmont, here is a brief synopsis of just one of the informational presentations that took place.  This information was shared by Vickie McLane, Registered Yoga Teacher and Owner/Operator at Yoga Adobe, a yoga studio located in Berthoud, Colorado.

Color Therapy. Heard the term? This practice has been around for thousands of years in many countries around the world.  Recently I had the pleasure of being introduced to Color Therapy and find the subject absolutely fascinating not only for it’s simplicity, but it’s relevance because of that simplicity.  We live in an overly scheduled world.  How can you keep your energetic, emotional and physical bodies in tune and in balance? It’s really quite simple – apply color!

Color Therapy uses the rainbow colors and frequently relates these colors to one of the 7 energy centers of the body known as the Chakras.  If you feel unbalanced in one of your Chakras you may achieve some relief through the use of color – wearing it, eating it, drinking it, visualizing it, decorating with it – the sky’s the limit!!

There are many lovely books available through your local library that will give you a world of depth on this topic.  Here are a few you might consider browsing through:

Discover Color Therapy by Helen Graham – presents many examples of ways to heal using color – check out the Applied Kinesiology on page 39.

Simply Color Therapy by Nina Ashby – has a chapter devoted to Dressing for Success and a chapter with tips on healthy colors in your home décor.

The Practical Book of Color Therapy by Susan Lilly and Simon Lilly – this volume uses loads of beautiful color images to help you understand how color affects us both consciously and subconsciously. Pages 60 & 61 give us an interesting color assessment exercise. Pages 66-71 show us the relationship between the colors of our foods and our health and energy.

Also, here is an interesting website on the topic: – this website offers a free test to help you determine which areas of your body are in need of color therapy.

Enjoy your exploration of color!

Google Adwords

I have found that google adwords is a great way to jump start your ranking on google listings.  Make sure you have all your SEO pieces in place and then get a good campaign going.  You can choose how much you want to spend each day and let google do the bidding for you.  Your ad will show until your maximum for the day is reached.  You are able to pause a campaign at any time, and start it back, or delete it and start a new one.  Your ads can go to a specific page in your website so you are able to target  certain keywords within your site.  I can help you set it up and/or help you keep it maintained.  You will be able to see a lot of information about the people who are visiting your site by looking at where they are from, and even what type of computer/phone they are using to view your site.  Give me a call if you need any assistance getting your site noticed on the web.  Visit my site at
