The power of light hues is transformational.

The ancients built circular temples with a domed roof constructed from interlocking crystals. Most importantly, these crystals refracted incoming sunlight, filling the temple with spectral colors.

Individual healing rooms encircled the temple, adorned with colors based on their known healing attributes.

Archaeologists have discovered that the Egyptian healing temples had similar construction details. In ancient Egypt, the use of color in healing was attributed to Thoth, the patron god of physicians and scribes.

In Ayurvedic medicine, the treatment approach extends to using minerals and gemstones. These precious stones are believed to contain universal light rays and emphasize the profound connection between color and healing.

Harness the mystical by empowering your aura.


A common practice amongst the Greeks and Romans was treatment by sunlight, known as Heliotherapy, which Herodotus is supposed to have introduced.

Journeying back to ancient Greece, Pythagoras established a philosophical medical center where students worked with the science of numbers. They established scientific theories of sound and musical octaves, which they used for healing in conjunction with color.

Their deep knowledge and understanding of the healing powers of the color rays was nearly lost when, later in history, the Greeks considered color only as a science.

Hippocrates, amongst others, abandoned the metaphysical side of color, concentrating only on the scientific aspect. Fortunately, despite this, a few passed down the knowledge and philosophy of color throughout the ages.

From the 1st Century, light had its healing place.

During the early part of the first Century, the early Christian Church tended to equate disease with punishment for sin and healing with grace and divine intervention, deeming pagan those medical practices involving color and other unorthodox methods of treatment.

Thus, this drove such practices underground, where ancient knowledge and wisdom could only be passed on orally and in secret settings.

Although many Greek and Roman writings on procedures were lost, many were preserved and translated, first into Arabic and later into Latin. The outstanding Persian physician Avicenna restored color to medical practices.

In the Middle Ages, Paracelsus reintroduced this knowledge by using the power of color rays to heal, create music, and use herbs.

Unfortunately, the medical sector discredited Paracelsus’s vast and incredible writings, so it was no surprise that most of his manuscripts were destroyed by fire. However, now, many think he was one of the most excellent doctors and healers of his time. Arthur Edward Waite translated his surviving work into English.

There were further incredible light pioneers.


By the nineteenth Century, drug use was growing, and the concept of treating the whole person was lost. Emphasis focused on diseases of the physical body.

The color disappeared, excluding the spiritual, emotional, and mental aspects. Notably, its re-emergence during this time was attributed to Dr. Seth Pancoast and Dr. Edwin Babbitt.

At the beginning of the twentieth Century, the occultist, philosopher, teacher, and religious leader Rudolf Steiner investigated color. He related color to mathematical form, believing that form could amplify color’s effect.

In addition, two great twentieth-century pioneers of color therapy were Dinsaha Ghadiali and Dr. Harry Spitler. Although Ghadiali, a qualified physicist, had no medical training, he was awarded four honourary medical degrees for his research into color.

Spitler, a remarkable doctor and optometrist, originated a system of color treatment called syntonics, which applied light directly through the eyes.

Sun-inspired Heliotherapy encounters science.

In conclusion, sunlight treatment (Heliotherapy) involves absorbing the full-color spectrum of sunlight. It was reintroduced in the middle of the nineteenth Century by Jakob Lorber, who maintained that any part of the body suffering from disease would benefit from sun exposure.

Another pioneer, Danish physician Niels Ryberg Finsen, used artificial light through the instrument known as the carbon arc to treat skin tuberculosis.

In addition, the medical profession uses various light treatment forms. The good news is that people and animals are benefiting from it. Perhaps the ancients had it right at the start.

There are also many modern-day pioneers to explore today.
