Accomplish Goals Through Color Visualization

Visualize goals in color to gain personal achievement. Positive colors affect our mood, energy and success. Color therapy has been used for years. Colors can make us feel optimistic, calm or sexy. It is not a proven science. Big corporations have studied the psychological value of colors and used it to their advantage. McDonald's uses the colors of red and yellow. The right mix of these colors can stimulate our appetites, making us feel hungry and entices us to buy more.

Goal setting with the visualization of color may help us gain better success in our achievements

Color Therapy with Goals Restore Balance

Color therapy uses techniques of restoring balance to the body through the use of color. Colors help harmonize the body's energy fields. Feel stronger, more energetic, more balanced, less stressed, more empowered with understanding the healing powers.

A spectrum of different wavelengths called vibrational frequencies from white light that is reflected. This frequency gives off a rainbow range of colors, starting with red on one end to blue on the other. These are the colors that we are all familiar with. In color therapy or chromatherapy, different colors are used for healing the imbalance of our bodies.

An example of how colors work with fitness:

When working out with yoga and relaxing exercises, the color of the room tend to be a cool color of blue, green or purple to give a calming effect on our bodies and mood. Warm colors are used for weights and strenuous exercises. These colors include orange, yellow and red.

Goal Setting: 13 Secrets of World Class Achievers

Visualize Goals with Color and Positive Thinking

Combine goal setting and positive thinking to colors for maximum achievement.

True success must be visualized in a positive way. Clear our mind of all negativity. Reading a book on goal setting and positive thinking is a good start in the right direction. Attract your life to things you do want. Start with step-by-step goals and work up for greater achievement. Add a splash of color to enhance the effect.

Setting goals and sticking with them is not always easy. First we need to set aside some private time where there is no interference from the TV, a dog barking, children or our work. Start writing realistic goals in baby steps. Take more steps each time.

Begin with a plan of action on how these goals will be achieved. Write each goal out. Exclude the words "I will" or "I want." These words represent things that have not yet happened. Envision your goal as something already achieved with positive affirmations.

1. I lost five pounds by the end of the week on (this date).

2. I exercise with two 30 minute workouts everyday.

3. I have eliminated extra sugar and salt to my food.

Envision a color that is soothing, calm and energetic. Add a color that will help you achieve your goal, then highlight your written goal and post it on your refrigerator. In color therapy, different colors have different meanings. Green is the color of health. Green could stimulate your brain into eating more leafy vegetables. Remember that all goals need to be broken down in how you plan to work on it. How are you going to get more fit? What exercises will you be doing?

This same Plan of Action can be applied to any goal. Independent wealth, trip to Hawaii, physical and emotional health or writing a book can be part of your resolution for this year.

      I find it important to take time each morning to set my aura colour, which helps establish my attitude for the day. It didn't occur to me to associate colours with goals. I'm going to try that!

      You also made an excellent point about stating your goals as if you have already achieved them. That really does make a huge psychological difference.

      Thanks for the info. It's great!

      I agree Sandy, the power of colors is very strong. Let me give you a strange example, I was once having an awful hectic day, I started cleaning, upon making my bed I covered it with a quilt with a plethora of colors, no palette or coordination. BRIGHT GREENS, brown, Yellows, reds, every color was there. As the day continued my mood got worse, especially when I was in the bedroom, I finally decided to put another blanket over the loud patterned one, and it was an instant mood fix.. lol!!

      @SoundsOfBliss: You are right that black is not a color. But black is used to represent power and strength. Therefore it is included here.

      Colours affect the emotions and some are peaceful while others are hot and unnerving such as red is that to me, also black. My choice of best colours are blue and green. Nice lens, blessed.

      I am sure colour has an effect on my mood. It is very interesting how you are saying you can use colour to achieve goals as well. I also agree that with using affirmations you need to say it or write in a way that you have already achieved it.

      I've read up a bit on color therapy for healing. However, I've never heard it applied to setting or achieving goals. It's an interesting concept.
