Colour and the Butterfly
The spectral colour range (the colours we see—'(the distribution of light energy versus wavelength) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors' [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color]) ranges from infrared to ultraviolet; in other words, red to white. Our choice of pink as a background is meant to be seen as a parenthesis around the full colour spectrum. The colour spectrum reflects the colours of the chakras (see below).
The butterfly represents a spirit of freedom, a lightness of being and the joy that these two feelings bring to life. This concept of lightness is both weightlessness or 'burdenlessness' and the clarity brought about by the light of consciousness.
The butterfly and colour pink combined signify our potential for joy.
The Colour Spectrum & The Chakras
According to Eastern philosophy there is a kind of energy pole centred along the spinal cord. This pole is referred to as the 'Kundalini'. Each section of the Kundalini is represented by a different colour and these sections are known as 'Chakras'. Each coloured chakra has its own meaning and purpose. The Hindus believe that each chakra is important for the wellbeing of the individual.
|First chakra||Red||The root chakra (located in the pelvic area)|
|Second chakra||Orange||The sacral chakra (found below the stomach)|
|Third chakra||Yellow||The solar plexus|
|The fourth chakra||Green||The heart chakra|
|Fifth chakra||Blue||The throat chakra|
|Sixth chakra||Indigo||The third eye or brow|
|Seventh chakra||Violet||The crown of the head|
The summit of the chakras is said to be represented by white—pure, clean, vibrant white, as dazzling as snow, as bright as light. This youthful exuberant light is the symbol of spiritual awareness in its ultimate form.
