- How many times, have you used these phrases?
- She was 'green' with envy.
- She was 'white' with fear.
- Stopped by the 'red' light and zipped by 'red'.
- I am having the winter 'blues' etc.
- Have you ever wondered, why you chose to wear 'yellow' on a particular day or felt more comfortable in a light 'blue' coloured wall room!
- This is because of the simple reason that Colours do influence our mood, personality, feelings, emotions, our physical energy or well being.
- Your preferred colour choices can tell a lot about your inclinations, your state of mind and even your characteristics as a whole.
- Recently, I had attended a workshop regarding use of colours in our daily life by a reputed Feng shui expert. What I could gather from the discussion, I want to share here. Hope it is as interesting to you as it was for me.
- It is a scientific and proven fact that everything has a vibration/ frequency including us.
- The Human Body consists of Energy Centres or Seven CHAKRAS, as called in Hindi.
- Each individual CHAKRA represents one colour of the Rainbow. But these colors are not visible to the naked eye. Every colour in the Rainbow radiates a different vibration.
- Reds vibrate very slowly, whereas Violets vibrate very quickly.
- The other five colours vibrate at rates between these two colours.
- The colour vibration of a particular CHAKRA can be enhanced by using that particular colour when we are in need of that related energy.
- For example, the colour 'yellow' stimulates our mind and is related to wisdom, thought and spoken words. The energy related to Self confidence and self esteem are signified by this color. Therefore you would benefit by using 'yellow' when you are preparing for that Interview or Presentation.
