Healing With The Color Green

Absolute green is the most restful color, lacking any undertone of joy, grief, or passion. On exhausted men this restfulness has a beneficial effect, but after a time it becomes tedious. ~Wassily Kandinsky

Overview:

Green is the color of the heart chakra. It has a calming effect, especially in inflamed conditions of the body. It is soothing to the nervous system. It is a great healer. It builds muscles, bones and other tissue cells. Its complement is magenta.

Green is cooling, soothing, and calming both physically and mentally. If you are exhausted, green initially has a beneficial effect, but after a time, it becomes tiring. Green acts upon the sympathetic nervous system. It relieves tension in the blood vessels and lowers the blood pressure. It acts upon the nervous system as a sedative and is helpful in sleeplessness, exhaustion, and irritability.

Green strongly affects the heart chakra, and it is balancing to the autonomic nervous system. It can be applied beneficially in cardiac conditions, high blood pressure, ulcers, exhaustion, and headaches. Green harmonizes, life-giving, calms the mind, nerves, fever, and acidity; balances the metabolism, stabilizes the weight, tones liver and spleen; and benefits the pituitary gland.

Using The Color Red

“As she always did on any really important day, Penelope Hayes wore red.”
― Anna Godbersen

Wearing red:

A person may choose to wear red one day and this may indicate they are ready to take action, or they may be passionate about what they are going to do that day, or again it may mean that they are feeling angry that day, on either a conscious or subconscious level. Wear a red accent piece when you want to present yourself as bold and dynamic. It can boost your confidence if you are attending a function or interview where you feel unsure of yourself. If a woman wears a red dress it usually is associated with sex appeal.

Put red in your life when there is:

  • A lack of enthusiasm and interest in life.
  •  A lack of energy and a feeling of over-tiredness.
  • An inability to make your dreams a practical reality.
  • A feeling of insecurity, unwarranted fear, or anxiety.
  • Deficiencies in red and red foods show up as low energy levels, anemia, light-headedness, and lack of stamina.

Questions to ask yourself when drawn to the color red:

  • Is there a need to take action now?
  • What is stopping you from doing what is necessary?

Loving red:

People who love the color red act – sometimes without thinking – on immediate desires. In fact, they’re usually the poster children for immediate gratification. Sometimes people who love red are at war with themselves or others, their lives, and/or circumstances. Red is associated with passionate love, sex, great energy, impulse, action and stimulation, assertiveness and aggression, courage, strength and power, adventure, danger, warnings, revolt and revolution. Temperamental and ambitious people with a need for personal freedom.

Not loving red:

A person who has an aversion to red may be over-active, too impulsive, hot-tempered, aggressive and egocentric, or have difficulties with people with such characteristics. It can also symbolize deeply hidden fears and rejection of his own assertiveness.

The Color Red

“Red is the color of life. It’s blood, passion, rage. It’s menstrual flow and after birth. Beginnings and violent end. Red is the color of love. Beating hearts and hungry lips. Roses, Valentines, cherries. Red is the color of shame. Crimson cheeks and spilled blood. Broken hearts, opened veins. A burning desire to return to white.”
― Mary Hogan, Pretty Face

One of the three primary colors, bright red pops out of whatever environment it happens to be in and grabs our attention more than any other color. Moreover, it is the first actual color that is seen by babies. Because  it has a lower vibrational frequency than any other color in our visible spectrum, it is associated with the base chakra and symbolizes passion, sexuality, fertility, and animal urges.

Red is thought of as an immediate color. This affects the thinking processes, causing restlessness and impatience.

The effect of red on the eye is quite unusual. For the color to be seen, the eye itself makes internal adjustments. This alteration means that we see red objects as closer than they really are.

Red is the color of blood, rubies and strawberries. This primal color is associated with danger, sacrifice, passion, fire, beauty, blood, anger, Christmas, socialism, communism, and in China and many other cultures, with happiness. Red is the color of blood, which means that it is associated with the life-force and vitality. Red is the most physical active color, a color of personal self-hood (I AM), red is a color of will. It supports survival and leadership.

Wearing red, eating red foods and surrounding yourself with red increases the body’s ability to absorb iron, the metal that is responsible for the color of hemoglobin in the blood. The presence of hemoglobin allows the blood to absorb oxygen in the lungs and to transport that life-giving oxygen to the cells of the body.

Red light increases blood pressure, pulse rate, and breathing rate. Psychological research has shown that men find women who are wearing red more attractive. Bright red rooms often make people anxious. Rooms with a red toned accent can influence people to lose track of time, this is one reason why red is often used in bars and casinos. Restaurants often use red as a decorating scheme because it stimulates the appetite.

Red is the color of passion, anger, and high blood pressure. Red is a primal color. It represents primal urges, like lust (we call certain areas red-light districts for a reason) and fury (you know the phrase “seeing red,” right?). Yes, red is a commanding color: think of how stop signs get you to halt in your tracks and how you stand back when a red fire engine goes whizzing by.
