Just like sound, which I recently shared about in my post “The Power of Sound ~ The Power of Your Song,” color and light therapy also emits frequencies, or vibrations, that can have many healing benefits. Read on to learn a little about color therapy and its effects.
Can color heal the nervous system? Do different hues have the ability to bring health to the body through the gateway of the eyes?
The answer to these questions is, amazingly, yes. Optometric phototherapy, which heavily relies upon the use of color, has been proven to deliver results to patients. This means that color is not only beautiful, but is also medically useful.
What Is Optometric Phototherapy? How Does It Work?
Syntonics, also known as optometric phototherapy or colored light therapy, is a form of therapy that has been studied formally for over 70 years. According to the College of Syntonic Optometry, syntonics “is the branch of ocular science dealing with the application of selected light frequencies through the eyes.”
To understand syntonics, you must first understand color. Color is not just something lovely to look at; it actually emits physical frequencies, or vibrations. Different colors emit different frequencies…

While I’ve been immersed in painting recently, I’ve been once again in awe of color.
Oh how I love color!
I love vibrant color.
I love soft, muted color.
I love surprise color blends.
I love playing with new color combinations and creating the perfect, sensual harmony that reflects the vibration of each energy that is channeling through.
Colors are energy frequencies that I sense on all levels…I feel them, hear them, taste them, smell them, see them….and they appear through inner vision/feeling and music.
As an artist I feel that tapping into the boundless possibilities of creative energy is a reflection of my expansiveness in growth.
The more I discover and channel through personal expression, the more I expand, deepen, evolve, increase my vibration and vitality, and create doors to new possibilities.
This creative energy isn’t just limited to artists, but is available to anyone who desires to push the envelope of their personal expressiveness in life.
Creative energy is one of the most powerful things that there is. Exercising your imagination is invaluable.
How do you tap into the well of your creativity?
I LOVE colors and feel that they represent the power of our creative energy and potentials.
As an artist I have always used vibrant blends of colors, much like these found in the amazing photos included in the article.
Thank you Sindy for posting this article from Margaret Ann Lembo.
We can each be more conscious about “creating life as a work of art” (my motto) indeed.

Everything is Energy
Everything that is created is created through intention. We create our lives with our thoughts, actions, words and deeds. Our thoughts vibrate out and return back to us in the form of our personal reality. For example…

As a visionary artist, I have always been passionately obsessed with color and when I paint, I am always exploring and playing with vibrant combinations that you don’t always see, but are the way I “feel” them to be.
I may not have “tetrachomacy” like this article shares about, but my inner vision seems to be similar to how this rare eye condition provides the ability to see hues that aren’t visible to everyone.
This is a very cool article and I love how Concetta Antico is harnessing her rare gift to help colorblind people by sharing ways to retrain the brain to support color perception in her art classes that she teaches.
There is a rare condition that’s not fatal, but many artists would kill to have it. It is called tetrachomacy. Its main symptom is near-superhuman vision.
Impressionist painter Concetta Antico has tetrachomacy. When she examines a leaf, she sees a “mosaic of color,” not just shades of green.
“Around the edge I’ll see orange or red or purple in the shadow; you might see dark green but I’ll see violet, turquoise, blue,” she says. In her line of work, this ‘disorder’ is a rare gift that produces extraordinary works of art.
Tetrachromats have more receptors in their eyes to absorb color, letting them see hues that are invisible to everyone else. The average person has three cones, or photoreceptor cells in the retina that control color vision and allow people to see up to a million colors. Tetrachromats have four cones, so they can detect nuances and dimensions of color…
