Nature is colour, the entire spectrum of colour comes from sunlight

I have chosen to use coloured bottles to charge water in the sun for two reasons.  One is to add a colour lift to my day and the second is to balance my chakra energy centers.   I remember studying how colors influence on our thoughts, moods and behaviors  by stimulating the pituitary and pineal glands in school. For example, we learned that red stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, while white and blue color stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.  The energy vibration of color is used to enhance and balance our physical, emotional and spiritual state.  Colour is energy and each cell in our body requires this energy to stay vital.

Colours vibrates at different frequency rate that compliment our energy centers or  chakras.  Candace Pert, Ph.D, a medical researcher found that areas in the body that are particularly rich in neuropeptides correspond to the location of the seven chakra centers. Neuropeptides are natural healing chemicals.

Rainbow Colour Therapy is based on the positive effects of using colour on the complimentary Chakra energy center for therapeutic purposes to balance the body’s healing powers.  Susceptibility to disease conditions increases if the chakras are not balanced or are blocked.  Using specific colour rays can be absorbed by the chakra centers and restore its vitality.

The word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”. In both Buddhism and Hinduism the chakras are represented by colourful wheels along the spine from the base to the top of the head.  The size and brightness of the wheels relate to an individuals development, physical condition, disease, stress and energy levels.  The chakra wheel colours are violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.

Colour energized solar water

You can drink or inhale colours according to ancient Indian scripture. It is an age-old therapy, codified in the Atharva Veda as Surya Kiran Chikitsaâ, healing with the sun’s rays.

Coloured Water Bottles and Complimentary Chakra

The different coloured bottles reflect the crown, eye, voice, heart, solar plexus, belly and root chakras.

In his book Surya Chikitsa, Dr M.L. Kathotia notes that colors can resolve your past karma. The seven chakras of our body are centers of different karma, and the negative karma can be taken care of by proper color visualization.

Living Waters: Drinking ‘Sun Charged’ Water

Colour energized solar water

The coloured bottles line the windowsill as the plants die back in the fall.  My eye is looking for visual colour stimulation and I am seeking new sources of daily water enhancement.  Each bottle is filled daily with fresh water to catch the sun to charge in its solar energy. The benefits for me are the visual high when walking into the room and drinking  sun charged water.

Solar water has practical benefits of being anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.  Some use clear bottles however I enjoy the added benefit of colour therapy!  As well as drinking this water, and using it for medicinal washes I have begun to water my herbs and plants with this water during the shorter days.

Capture Sun Benefits in Late Fall and Winter

The glass bottles are filled with fresh water each day and put into a sunny place.  Clear bottles can be used or as in my case I have used coloured ones.  Ideally they are in full sun for up to 8 hours a day.  Sun charged water can be kept for 24 hours and does not need to be refrigerated.  If charging outside remember to bring your bottles in for the evening.

One can begin drinking water after being exposed to the sun for 2 hours,  however the longer the water is exposed, the higher the solar infusion is.  Super charge your water by placing a copper penny under each bottle!  Make sure you pennies are dated prior to 1081 as they have a higher copper content.

Daily Bottle Cleaning 

Personally I clean these glass bottles daily with a small amount of vinegar and a rinse to ready the for refilling the next day.

Even though sun charged water is used to treat and disinfect water in large water treatment plants  in some countries as it  eliminates microbes and pathogens, l clean the bottles for personal energetic reasons.

Benefits of Sun Charged Water

Energizing water brings life back to water after it looses it’s aliveness that naturally occurs as it leaves its source.  Consider that water can only change as at its source it flows over rocks, minerals, and is exposed to sand, dirt, roots, branches, leaves and water life and then is redirected into filtration systems and travels through pipes before reaching it destination!    Energize your water by sun charging it, putting clean rocks and minerals in your water container or adding herbs, edible flowers and leaves.  Another way of energizing your water has been reflected in the work of Dr. Emoto and his experiments  who used different influences to reflect changes in the water through differing crystal shapes the water created when exposed to words, sounds and thoughts.

Water is our main source of energy at a cellular level.  It ranks as one of the primary elements for survival of the human body, along with oxygen, salt, and potassium.   These four elements along with magnesium are the key elements for energy regulation as fluid passes in and out of our cells.

“The body’s water supply is responsible for and involved in nearly every bodily process, including digestion, absorption, circulation, and excretion. Water is also the primary transporter of nutrients throughout the body and so is necessary for all building functions in the body,” writes Phyllis A. Balch, Prescription for Nutritional Healing.

Personally, I have found that sun charged water creates a contented feeling that has resulted in a loss of cravings for snacks and coffee.  As I feel more hydrated, I feel more energized and have had deeper sleep patterns. My metabolism has increased and I feel lighter and happier.

It’s a great way to get back to enjoying our natural resources and it’s free! 

Wrap clear  glass bottles with coloured cellophane or pick up coloured bottles or vases inexpensively at garage sales or thrift shops!   

Remember to use glass bottles only!  Plastic in sun would cause the plastic to leach into the water!
