Secret Language of Colour Cards

Color cover "When Inna was a teenager she suffered from severe back pain. Though she visited doctors, chiropractors and other health-care professionals, her condition was deteriorating. By her early twenties, Inna's pain was so intense that for weeks she was barely able to walk. In an incredible twist of fate, Inna, while meditating, discovered an unusual way of communicating with her body. By tuning into her back and releasing all the pain and negative emotions, she was able to heal herself."  -- About Inna Segal, creator of The Secret Language of Colour Cards

Bestselling author Inna Segal (The Secret Language of Your Body) believes that the strategic use of color can heal disease, calm the mind, alleviate emotional stress and invigorate the body. Some businesses incorporate the mindful use of color, as do hotels, medical centers and schools--all with the intent of affecting feelings and experience.

From wearing clothing of a particular color to donning jewelry, drinking from colored glasses to using a certain hue of makeup, Inna points out that healing with color can take many forms. With The Secret Language of Colour Cards, Inna distills the energetic essence of 45 colors, providing a compact means for focusing on the special qualities for health and well being.

A few examples of the color wisdom Inna provides on the cards include:

Color 1 * Cherry - Live an Extraordinary Life
* Jade - Take Action
* Pearl - Strengthen Your Connection with the Divine
* Apricot - Rejoice and Lighten Up
* Yellow - Purify Your Body
* Aqua - Experience Peace and Calm
* Silver - Be Persistent
* Lavender - Body, Mind and Soul Connection
* Amber - Awaken Your Creativity
* Watermelon - Have Fun with Your Inner Child
* Azure - Protect Yourself
* Magenta - Connect to Your Deepest Inner Knowing
* Purple - Develop Mental Clarity
* Chocolate - Nourish Your Body and Soul
* Gold - Attract Abundance

When I first saw these cards, I though "Hey, any deck that includes a Chocolate card...well, count me in!" I've used The Secret Language of Colour Cards intermittently over the last few months and, although these large, glossy cards are major mouth-watering eye-candy, I haven't found random draws with them to remarkable or particularly insightful. I would have loved to see more information on a specific color's background (use in art, symbolism, history, etc.) in the 80-page companion booklet. However, most of the information is just brief meditations, visualizations and prayers.

I'm not so sure The Secret Language of Colour Cards are a good diagnostic tool for physical ailments nor as an oracle, but the eye-popping colors, stunning photography and slick presentation would serve as excellent mood enhancers, chakra balancers and objects for relaxing contemplation.
