Colour Psychology And Art Therapy

Colour Psychology

Colours are the mother tongue of our subconscious mind. Dr Anu Mehta studied under the guidence of Dr Kwesi Anan odum in Lüscher Colour Dianostics in 2014, in Egypt. The Journey of colours changed the way she understood DIS-Ease.

Human Beings live in a world surrounded by colours. Since the nineteen Century, we have created expensive and limited Organic dyes and pigments for royalties. Purple, a royal colour used by Roman Emperor, was derived by killing thousands of snails. Today we use synthetic shades of every hue and intensity for various purposes. The natural colours of nature have profoundly impacted our physiology and Psychology; thus, we must understand colours which can help us reduce stress and increase productivity.

Humans get influenced by light, day, darkness, and night. Night and dark colours induced sleep, rest, passive behaviour and slowing of body metabolic rate; Day and light colours activated people to take action, work, and increase body metabolic rate. A primitive man hunted, attacked, defended, conquered and acquired the light to protect themselves.

The meaning of Colours has a universal language which is independent of race, sex, or social environment. Research shows that exposure to pure red colour excites our nervous system and raises the heart rate and blood pressure, and initiates the Sympathetic Nervous System. Similarly, the dark blue colour subdues our nervous system, decreases the heart rate and blood pressure and activates Parasympathetic Nervous System. The selection and rejection of specific colours reflect the client’s present state of mind.

Art Work and Art Therapy

‘Imagination is more important than knowledge.’
Albert Einstein

Art is a symbolic representation of who we are, how we interact, and how we understand our larger environment. It is a robust tool for understanding individual subconscious suffering and wounds. Our clients’ words, language, stories, and artwork aid empathic understanding and encourage conflict resolution.
Dr Anu Mehta believes in the hidden potential of us humans wherein we can fully express our cognitive ability and analytical thought through our imagination, intuition, deepest desires, aspirations and creative impulses.

Siegel is a successful surgeon who took a class from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that focused on crayon drawing for healing, especially with patients facing a life-threatening disease. Siegel incorporated into his practice these techniques — many of which were laughed at by others in the medical community. “Dr Bernie” discovered and shared that while patients might need antibiotics, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, their bodies also want to heal. Dr Bernie uses drawings to understand the subconscious. Prosperity. Siegel showed how to interpret drawings to help with everything from understanding why we are sick to making treatment decisions and communicating with loved ones at the META-Health conference in 2010 in Estonia and again in Hawaii in the U.S.A. Meta-Health Conference. All those facing ill health, and those caring for them, personally and professionally, will welcome the hands-on, patient-proven practices offered here.
