Violet is at the opposite end of the spectrum from red. It is a deeply healing and cleansing color, soothes pains in body, mind  and spirit. This color is known as one of the “cool” colors. The color violet has a very calming effect on us and is, therefore, very helpful for those people experiencing sleep difficulties or stress. However, it can be contra-indicated for those suffering from depressive disorders.

Violet light slows down an over-active heart; stimulates the spleen and the white blood cells (immunity). Brings sleep. Soothes mental and emotional stress. Decreases sexual activity. Decreases sensitivity to pain. Helps in detoxification. Exposure to violet light is good for mental and emotional problems, rheumatism, epilepsy, deep tissue work, and bones.

The Color Green

Green how I want you green. Green wind. Green branches.
~ Federico Garcia Lorca

juicy-grass-green-trees-couple-landscape

Green is the color of growing grass and leaves, of emeralds, and of jade. Green is the color most commonly associated with nature, the environmental movement, Ireland, Islam, spring, hope and envy. Green is a soothing
refreshing color associated with the Heart Chakra. Green is about growing, expanding, and living – it’s no coincidence that our money is green.

Green is the color of Nature, and the keynote of our planet Earth. Man’s first environment was a garden. The green radiance is essential to our health and happiness. As the color of nature and vegetation, it has a soothing, harmonious radiation that is essential for the well-being of our nerves, and the proper functioning of the body. Green pastures and fresh air are indeed a wonderful aid in recuperation of health, and it seems in line with this that the leaves of the Tree of Life are used for healing. As a color of earthly, perceptible growing things, it represents the field of sensation, and also the victory of life over death, as in spring.  Fertility of the fields; immediate natural life.

Green helps to restore balance and equilibrium. Walking through woodland where the light is predominantly filtered through green leaves creates a sense of calm in the emotions and an expansive increased sense of connection with our surroundings.

Green is the great healer. It is neutral to the other colors and serves as a general tonic and neutralizer. When in doubt, use green. It is a calming color and has a neutral effect on the human nervous system.

Studies have shown a decrease in blood pressure, pulse rate, and breathing rate when people are exposed to green light. Green is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision.

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

Two men wearing orange, the royal color, celebrated Queen Beatrix's abdication ceremony.

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.

Holiday Happiness

1-1

Many people enjoy relaxing by the seaside in summer. The predominant colors are the blues of the sea and sky, which introduce a feeling of expansiveness and peace. Turquoise tempers the deeper blues with an extra sense of calm and comfort. The golden yellow of sand and sunlight energize the body’s systems, helping to restore balanced functioning by reducing anxiety and stress levels, and, creating happiness and clarity in the mind. It is no wonder with today’s hectic lifestyle that two weeks doing nothing and simply being on a beach in the sunshine is regarded by many as the perfect holiday and one which they will repeat each year with unfailing regularity.

The same color combination of blues and golds occurs in many desert or near desert conditions and it is perhaps significant that in the past many people have sought the deserts of the world as places of mysticism for contemplation, visions, and religious inspiration. With such isolation, very few distractions and the stimulus of blues gold, and yellows, directly affecting the function of the nervous system, such places encourage the deepest thought.
