Change Your Mood by Changing your Colours
Colour & Emotions
Think a minute – is it that red dress or blue tie that makes you feel good – and gets lots of compliments? What’s your “power” colour? Colour doesn’t just reflect our moods, but has the power to change them.
What Exactly IS colour?
Colour – like everything else that exists in the universe – is vibration. Everything – from musical notes to our blood cells vibrates. Faster/higher vibrations manifest as light, then sound, finally coalescing into dense matter, i.e. us. The vibrations generated by different colours can even be detected by blind people through their hands; they state that different colours “feel” different, i.e. have varying vibrations.
Colour Energy – A Few Examples
Below is a short list of various colours and the energy that they emit:
|Orange||Encourages friendliness/sociability; also balances sexuality and increases creativity|
|Yellow||Calming; engenders clear thought and imparts a feeling of strength|
|Pink||Eases the heart, especially when deeply hurt|
|Turquoise||Clear communication; speaking with integrity|
|Deep Blue||Stills the mind; good for inspiration and developing intuition|
These are but a few examples of what colours can help with, but be your own guide – if those turquoise earrings or that hot pink tie makes you feel – happy, confident, sexy, etc. – then wear it!
How Colour Can Impact Your Day
Colour can inspire you, lift your spirits and make life a little more pleasant, especially in winter, when there is so little light. Brighten the winter landscape with colour – rather than succumbing to low moods (and colours) as gray and dull as the weather!.[i] So the next time you are getting ready for work or to go out, ask yourself two questions: first, “How do I feel?”, then ask, “How do I WISH to feel?” Then choose your colours for the day. [i] A little tip if you suffer from the “winter blues” (also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD) – get a small sunstone from a crystal shop and keep it on you at all times – it really does help!
