The Science Behind Colour
Our bodies carry energy within us, according to Einstein energy can be converted into mass. Scientifically, when mass vibrates at the speed of light, then it is converted back to energy. Mass is associated with energy and because we carry mass within our physical body, we also carry energy within us.
When it comes to various colors, Hindu Astrologers know that they have different wavelengths attached to them. In general, when the wavelength energy flow is less, the general energy flow will be increased.
Colours such as purple or violet will show a low wave length compared to colours that are bold and bright in colour such as bright yellow and strong bold red. So in general, the colour violet has more energy than other colours . Various colours will carry different energies and they will also have a impact and influence on our body, mind and spirit.
Scientifically we know that 98% of light enters our body through our eyes and the remainder is absorbed through our skin. Light is absorbed during the day time from the sun and by the moon in the night time.

The reaction results in a spark like movement throughout the nerves. Hindu Astrologers know these as energy centres, better known as CHAKRAS! The chakras in our bodies are highly responsive to bright light and the colours that are within them.
Colour is also present in Indian Yoga routines, the chakras within the body are designated specific with colours.
