Does color affect your mood?
In case you haven’t noticed, restaurants know this, too.
That’s why you’ll notice they have yellow or orange or reds because they stimulate you to eat more, drink more, and spend more.
Green has been shown to increase creativity. So, if you have an office or meeting space where you need good thoughts flowing, make sure there is some green: plants, walls, pictures, anything.
As humans, we have seven main energy centers, each with a different color frequency that goes with it.
I think of ROYGBIV: starting at the bottom chakra with red, then orange, then yellow, green (heart), blue, indigo, and violet for your crown.
Here are my three tips:
If you’re feeling uncertain about your future, insecure in your housing situation, unsure about your place in the world...choose RED for your bottom chakra. Wear more red, look at red flowers, put up a poster of beautiful red scenes. It will help you feel grounded to earth’s loving energy
If you’re ready to make some change, aren’t certain of where to go with that, and can “feel” life change tingling inside you but it remains elusive...then choose ORANGE for your 2nd chakra or energy center. Wear orange clothes, eat on orange plates, look at orange pictures, or eat oranges if you can. It will enhance and strengthen that part of you.
An idea is taking shape for you. Now you need the self-confidence, organizational skills, and courage to make it come alive. Then, choose YELLOW to look at, to wear, to eat, to enjoy around you.
Those are my three tips today. Tomorrow we’ll talk about when to use the other energy center colors to strengthen different parts of your life.
