Color has a powerful sensory appeal and many of us learn from visual cues. Researchers of integrative medicine study the impact of color on stress, relationships, productivity and healing. Understanding what different colors transmit and say about people can improve communication and engender respect and acceptance for personality differences. Why do we gravitate to certain colors, avoid others and how do they affect our energy levels? Color addresses the subconscious helping us to decode whether we like or dislike someone or how we feel in a particular room. We don't rationalize color like we do with words. We react to color. Therefore color can help us to decode and refine our intuition.
Change your colors periodically to open yourself up to other people as well as to change your own disposition and energy levels.
Here are some colors and what they might mean to you:
- Orange is the color of cheerfulness
- Red is bold and energetic
- Blue is calming and soothing
- Yellow is intellectually stimulating
- Green is healing
- Brown is earthy
- Silver is spiritual
- Purple is regal and powerful
Color -Centering Exercise:
Try this quick color centering exercise in the morning or whenever you need to re-gain your balance and empower yourself. Imagine that the center of your forehead is deep blue. This is where your creativity and inspiration reside. Next, your heart, no matter what you have done in life, is pure white. Your belly is golden, because you are a confident, golden child. Now align the three colors in a straight vertical line, like a traffic light: blue, white and gold. See, you are now in good alignment and can handle anything.
