I have been trying to understand my sensitivity to light and colour from many different angles (most of them scientific) but recently something has led me to think about it all from a more spiritual angle.
As I have been observing my Irlen syndrome symptoms over the last 7 months I have noticed that they correlate with me seeing a predominance of one coloured light in the atmosphere. And also I seem to be experiencing symptoms in a specific area of my body – different for each coloured light. So . . . in the summer when the light felt more blue to me, the symptoms were around my head and chest. But if it got stormy and there was a lot of cloud I would see the light as yellow and my symptoms would drop lower in my body and affect my mood. I have continued to study my reaction to coloured light and these are my findings so far:-
Red Light – I feel this in my lower abdomen and it makes me feel stronger in my legs. I feel more secure and grounded but I can feel hot and agitated.
Orange Light – I feel this in my upper abdomen. It feels like strength and causes me to be more outspoken but I can feel a bit separate from other people
Green Light – I feel this around my stomach. I struggle with green and I get indigestion and an itchy face.
Yellow Light – I feel this around my heart. I struggle with yellow and I feel down-hearted.
Blue – I feel this around my chest and throat. I can feel like I am all alone in the world.
Indigo – I feel strong and resolute but I can get headaches.
Violet – I feel this around my head. I think more clearly and find it easier to let go to my intuition but I can feel more easily overpowered and have a tendency to be impatient and don’t have much time for anything that doesn’t feel really meaningful.
Based on my findings I can deduce certain things about myself . . . . Red – I long to feel grounded and present in myself and love it when I do but maybe you can feel too grounded (stodgy!) and I need to let go of my grounded feeling into other aspects of myself to really feel fully present. Orange – I am in touch with my creativity but long to collaborate with others more. Green – I struggle to really digest life in all its fullness. Yellow – I struggle to let in self acceptance and acceptance from others. Blue – I like to speak my truth but feel alone in what I have to say. Indigo – I trust my intuition as far I can but struggle to let go to the greater plan sometimes. Violet – I have faith in God but I don’t find living my calling easy!
This theory is obviously loosely based on the chakras but is also completely based on my own experience. Some of the areas of the body and colours don’t tally with those of the chakras. I don’t know why certain colours resonate with different areas of my body.
We all have our story to unfold. I just wanted to share my story. What is your story?
