Peter Mandel, Colourpuncture founder, has fine-tuned and further developed traditional meanings and therapeutical indications of colours based on his extensive research and clinical experience.
You are welcome to read a brief summary about Peter Mandel’s understanding of colours and see if you can relate to the Esogetic colour meanings based on your own perception of colours.
Red is the colour of fire. It is the colour of the burning, radiant sun, and of life itself. Both love and anger, joy and wrath have connection to colour red. Red is the color with the greatest power of penetration and will strongly stimulate the flow of blood. It is also traditionally associated with sex and the first chakra in Eastern spiritual traditions. Phlegmatic children may be helped by having them do their homework under red light. Red colour will make you more active in every sense if you are naturally lazy!
Orange is a mixture of red and yellow and is the colour of joy and happiness. The colour orange helps in cases of discontentment, pessimism, psychosis, depression and fear. However, if you suffer from fear, you should alternate orange with blue. Short exposure to orange light in the morning will help you if you are chronically tired at that time of day. Orange will increase your sense of healthy ambition and promote warm-heartedness. It has a brightening and cheering effect and will lend strength and joy if you feel disinclined to work.
Yellow symbolizes the sun standing at its zenith, and is one of the hot colours of the spectrum. It promotes digestion, strengthens the nerves, stimulates the stomach and has a brightening and cheering effect in general. All diseases of the digestive tract should be treated with the colour yellow. People who are discontent show a change of facial expression when exposed to yellow light.
Green is the most common colour in nature and is regarded as being a neutral factor. The colour green helps with bronchial catarrh, whooping cough and inflammations of the joints (in alternation with blue, in the latter case). All chronic diseases respond well to the intermittent use of green light and precision work can be done better under it. It has a balancing effect and will promote feelings of contentment and tranquility. Green is also sedative, soothing and relaxing in its effect.
Turquoise, according to Peter Mandel’s research and clinical observations, is the color of the deep subconscious. the light and dark nuances of the colour turquoise represent the outer and inner coat of the soul. The phychological symptoms which drive people within consciousness into rigidity and stasis,are related to the outer coat of the soul and dark turquoise. After treatment in turquoise colours, you are likely to experience feelings of deep relief, balanced pleasure and inner calmness; blissful happiness and contentment. The turquoise colour will deepen your breath and clear your head.
Blue is the colour of peace and infinity. It is regarded of being a cold colour, and has a relaxing effect on the body-mind. Blue is the color of the pituitary gland and the endocrine system. All diseases involving heat require treatment with blue light. This color is also indicated for complaints involving suppuration, pain, plethora and congestion. Warts disappear under the effect of radiation with blue light. Hyperactive children should do their homework under blue light. The colour blue will promote your inner calmness and health reserves.
Violet has always been associated with spirituality and in accordance, it acts on the unconscious, lends the individual spiritual strength and promotes awareness and consciousness. Violet increases the effect of all kinds of meditation and is also regarded as being the color of inspiration. It has a positive effect on the spleen and promotes the functioning of the lymphatic system.
