Seasons are vital to the progression and evolution of our planet. They also offer humans the opportunity to consciously transition. Spring brings a sense of renewal, while summer is the time of never-ending days, prompting us to remain active, light in our spirits, and open to adventure. Autumn provides us with that easy shift from hot to cold, as we take advantage of utter comfort yet remain lighthearted. It is a true culmination of the year in its entirety. As the leaves change to fiery hues, we wholeheartedly embrace this time. But then winter hits, and people begin harping on seasonal depression.

The shorter days of winter can result in Seasonal Affective Disorder, also known as SAD, whose symptoms include fatigue, depression, restlessness, and moodiness. But how can we take this time of grounding and slowing down to dig deep into ourselves to express our positivity and footprint in the world in a new manner: one that is different than any other season, but ultimately just as powerful in its own unique way?
Here is one way to ward off seasonal depression.

A Brief History of Colored Light Therapy

A means of restoring balance in the body by applying color to it, colored light therapy dates back to ancient Egypt and was also practiced in Greece, China, and India. In ancient India, the chakra system originated. This system harbors the energy of light in the area of the major nerve ganglions along the spine. The chakras are complete with energy that inhibit the regular flow of light and color in the body, including the nervous system. The Egyptians and Greeks used the Hermetic tradition for healing by means of utilizing colored minerals, stones, crystals, salves, and dyes. Traditional Chinese medicine uses the meridian system to give organs and glands energy through color.
Applications of light and color have continued to be used worldwide as a means of healing. The thought is that full-spectrum, ultraviolet, colored, and laser light can treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, immune disorders and depression.

How It Works

Color therapy works as a healing mechanism by using the visible spectrum of light and color to alter the physical or mental state of an individual. The colors are each linked to a distinct frequency and vibration, which research suggests have certain effects that can positively shift the energy and frequencies within us. Aside from entering through our eyes, light can also make its way into our bodies via the skin by means of the meridian system and the chakra system.

    Seeking for Truth in the WORD through the Set apart Spirit Yahuah and the WORD of all Creation; Yahusha.
    Through Instruction, Testing, Listening, Seeking, Pondering, Walking TheWay of Righteousness= Observing the Sabbath appointments between the almighty Abba Yahuah and his Loyal Chosen Few professed in Leviticus 23, 24, and 25. Repenting, and asking for forgiveness for faltering daily in the s(k)in; admitting that we have faltered.
    Poured upon by the set apart spirit Yahuah, when we walk the path of righteousness, we then wear the blue/violet braided crown upon our temple hem, in remembrance of the Moral Commandments of the Kingdom’ Law. Yahuah birthed the WORD= Light= All things were created through the WORD; Yahusha, YahuSha= Yahuah is Salvation; Love, Life, and balance in the Law.
    And when we DO all these things without backsliding, our hearts are opened, and we are given gifts of Truth in the WORD of the Verses of the almighty Yahuah’s Script= clues, mysteries, and revelations of the end time scenarios that are upon ManKind, and the planet Earth. HalleluYAH!!!
