Lacy Lately ♥

I recently took a quick trip to Santa Barbara to see my best friend and de-stress! The moment I got back home our AC broke and we had to move into a hotel for a couple days. Thank goodness it was fixed after 2 days. I missed home!

Rainbow OPTX Chakra Color Therapy Glasses Guide


Violet – (Crown / Pineal Chakra) - Violet is very antiseptic, cleansing, and purifying on physical and spiritual levels. It helps balance the physical and spiritual energies. Violet can also stimulate inspiration and humility, and assist dream activity.

Indigo – (3rd Eye / Brow Chakra) - Indigo and the deeper shades of blue are dynamic healing colors on both spiritual and physical levels. This color activates the 3rd eye chakra and is balancing to all conditions associated with it. It is a color that is balancing to the hemispheres of the brain and nerve synapses between them. Indigo also has a sedative effect. You can use indigo when you are meditating in order to achieve deeper levels of consciousness. It can awaken devotion and intuition. Too much indigo can cause depression and a sense of separateness from others.

Blue – (Thyroid / Throat Chakra) - Blue is cooling to our system and it is relaxing. It is quieting to our energies. It is excellent for high blood pressure. It can be used to awaken intuition and to ease loneliness. Blue is very effective when combined with warmer colors in the red-orange spectrum. It can also be used to awaken artistic expression and inspiration.

Green – (Heart Chakra) – Green balances our energies, and it can be used to increase our sensitivity and compassion. It has a calming effect, especially for inflamed conditions of the body. It is soothing to the autonomic nervous system. The brighter greens leaning towards the blue spectrum are powerful in healing most conditions. Green can be used to awaken greater friendliness, hope, faith, and peace. It is restful and revitalizing to overtaxed mental conditions.

Rose – (Heart Chakra) - Rose pink also relates to the heart chakra being the color of love. Rose can be used to awaken compassion, love, and purity. It eases conditions of anger and feelings of neglect. It can be used in meditation to discern greater truths. Rose is comforting to the emotional energies of the individual.

Yellow – (Solar Plexus Chakra) - Yellow is stimulating to the mental faculties of the individual. It can be useful for depression. It helps re-awaken an enthusiasm for life. It can be used to awaken greater confidence and optimism. The golden-yellow shades are healthful to both the body and the mind.

Orange – (Sacral Chakra) - Orange is the color of joy and wisdom. It stimulates feelings of sociability. It is tied to our emotional health and to the muscular system of the body. Too much orange affects the nerves and should be balanced with shades of green-blues.

Red Orange – (Root / Sacral Chakras) - Red is a stimulating color. It will energize the base chakra. It warms and it activates. It awakens our physical life force. Red strengthens the physical energy and the will of the individual. It can stimulate deeper passions, such as sex and love, courage, or hatred and revenge. Too much red can overstimulate and aggravate conditions. High blood pressure is an indication of too much red energy within the system. Red can be used to raise the body’s temperature and to energize the blood.

Rainbow OPTX color therapy glasses are non-prescription colored sunglasses, constructed from lightweight nylon frames with acrylic lenses. The lenses meet current FDA standards for sunglass safety. They are impact resistant and meet general purpose UVA/UVB protection requirements.
