The Colors of Emotion: How do colors make you feel?
Colors relate to our mind, body and our emotions, yet not everyone sees or feels colors quite the same way.
How would you match some of these colors to the emotions that follow?
Trust; Love; Power; Wisdom; Optimism; Royalty; Deceit; Harmony; Happiness; Friendship; Aggression or War
White; Black; Green; Blue; Yellow; Orange; Red; Purple; Pink; Orange; Gold
For example, for trust, I would pick green.
Black - evil, deceit; orange - fire; Blue - happiness; Green - calm; Red - excitement, joy; Yellow - power; Silver - wisdom; White - trust, purity; Pink - optimism; Love - maroon; Navy - royalty; Jade - harmony; Lt. Blue - friendship; Dk. Gray - aggression or war.
A good matching done. I appreciate you.
Thank you for your interesting answers. Calm for green is another choice...it is so often associated with nature. :-)
I thank you all for your comments. :-)
Genna East, I write about nature and I like to watch and admire nature.
Interesting question, Genna! Colors do weigh heavy on our emotions I believe. I was going to say ... before reading your question in its entirety, that blue is calming and peaceful; green is serene; Bright yellow is happiness; red is aggressive or stimulating; black is somber ... Now, let's see, Wisdom is white; Yellow for Harmony; Purple for Royalty; Gray for War; Black for Deceit; Deep Red for Love; lighter yellow for Optimism; Royal Blue for Power; Fire red/orange for Aggression; Trust a warm gold glow; and, Warm yellow for friendship.
I love your image here. In line with your question, I once did this: I got an easel and water color tablet and left it open on my dresser. Everyday I added a dab of color on one page that matched how I was feeling. For example, on the left corner was a dab of yellow. The next day, depending on how I was feeling, I added another dab somewhere else on the page. I was hoping to end up with a beautiful abstract watercolor. Of course, as is typlcal of me, my attention waned after about a week of doing this and I never finished that one page. Your question, though, makes me want to go to Michael's and buy another water color book and do that all over again. This time I'll get a LITTLE Easel and a LITTLE book PS I think Faith's answer would be close to mine. Maybe each color is a "shade" different in meaning for each of us.
Blue is my favourite. It is also my spiritual Teachers and Sri Krishna's. It is the colour of infinity, vastness ...
Green is new life, growth, aspiration ...
Is that red? dynamism then, I say.
Always happy with bright colours, the Feng Shui style. We use white at our spiritual Centre. I'm sure you know that it is the colour of purity.
Stay 'cool' Genna. You look great! Much colour in your face
Colours affect me a lot, I put a lot of thought into choosing the colours for my home and even when I buy a bunch of flowers or clothing. Dull dark colours are depressing, bright vivid colours can uplift you and make you feel more positive.

If you were a computer program, how might you act differently?... I'm referring to Ray Kurzweil's Singularity theory. He believes we will upload and digitize our minds in a matter of decades. Consider the implications.

Hmm...If Atheists don't believe in God, than does that mean they don't believe in love?From what I've always known with any spiritualism/ Religion/Christianity/higher source is love, so if atheists claim there is nothing, than to them that would mean they don't believe in love if I'm correct! ...

Here's a puzzle: there are 3 primary colors; red, blue and yellow. . .Mix them to get the other colors. Now, scientifically, WHITE is made up of all the colors; and BLACK is considered the absence of all color. How, then, when we mix all of the colors in the paint box, we get a...
