Using The Color Orange

I advise students on the subject of color as follows:
If it looks good enough to eat, use it. 
~ Abe Ajay

Wearing orange:

Orange is the color of social communication and optimism. Wearing orange during times of stress, or shock can help to balance your emotions. It can bring about the willingness to embrace new ideas with enjoyment and a sense of exploration and creative play.

Put orange in your life when there is:

  • A feeling of bleakness and boredom, particularly where there is a sense that time is really dragging.
  • A lack of interest in what is going on around you, even to the degree of disdaining to become involved in any way.
  • A resentment of changes in familiar routines and an obsessive need to have things in their “proper” place.
  • Over-seriousness – taking oneself too seriously, lack of humor and playfulness in life.
  • A fear of experiencing pleasure through the senses and of enjoying sensuality.
  • An inability to let go of the past. Especially apparent after an accident or shock where the mind continually revolves around the issues involved – the “what if” and the “if only” …
  • A problem with blocked experiences in life, such as a decrease in personal creativity.

Questions to ask yourself when drawn to orange:

  • Is there a need to let go of old, worn out ideas, things, and/or emotions?
  • What is blocking you?
  • What are you allowing to block you?

Loving orange:

Orange is not the most common favorite color. Someone who likes orange is alive with feelings, the ability to nurture, and can intuit a path to success. If your favorite color is orange, you don’t have an “off” switch when it comes to passion. This is all good stuff, but there’s nothing casual about the connections this kind of person usually forges.

Orange represents the warmth of the fire. It brings even more energy than yellow, celebration and great abundance, comfort, enjoyment of the senses. Warm, sociable, dynamic and independent people who dedicate themselves to whatever they do.

Not loving orange:

A person who has an aversion to orange may have suppressed sexual feelings or other difficulties with sensual enjoyment of life. The attitude can also be over-sensual, indulgent, or too materialistic.

The Color Orange

“It’s different and bold. It stands out amongst a blank world of black, white, and gray. Orange is the early morning sun stretching across the sky and the color of a burning ember standing tall in the middle of a beach bonfire. It’s leaves in the fall, carrots in Nana’s vegetable soup on a cold winter day, tulips in the spring, and the ladybugs in the middle of the grassy park on a hot summer afternoon. Orange is life. It’s unexpected but beautiful.”
― Aly Martinez

Orange has two aspects that we see time and time again, pivoting between the material and spiritual worlds, which is not surprising given that the color itself is a balance between red and yellow. As such, it represents the second (sacral) chakra.

Orange is a vibrant, cheerful color that definitely lifts the spirits. Next to red, it is the color most popular for extroverts, and as a symbol of activity. In Europe and America, orange is commonly associated with amusement, the unconventional, fire, activity, danger, taste and aroma, the autumn season, and Protestantism. In Asia, it is an important symbolic color of Buddhism and Hinduism.

Orange creates balance. In times of stress, or after a shock or a surprise, wearing shades of orange can help the body to return to a state of balance. Orange will have a gentle warming effect if used lightly.

Curiosity is one of the driving characteristics of the orange vibration and this brings exploration and creativity, particularly on a practical level. In terms of subtle bodies, it is linked to the mental body in both its logical and conceptual form.

In marketing psychology, orange is used to make an expensive product seem more affordable and has been used to indicate that a product is suitable for everyone.

Orange is as sensual as it gets. Orange is a mellowed red – and it takes primal, lusty urges and mellows them with a softer vibe. Orange is the color of early attractions, emotional responses, and inner magnetism. It is also close to gold, the color of success and wealth.
