It is no secret that colors are extremely powerful when it comes to affecting our psychological and emotional states, and that’s not to mention the effects on our auric energy fields as well. Scientists have so clearly proven the effects of color on the human psyche and experience that according to Psychology World, “the psychological effects of color have such an underpinning in research that the findings of chromology, the psychology of color, are used in designing everything from hotel rooms to cereal packages.”
Based on the science and obvious power of color, here are some implications for how the colors of the rainbow could impact the perspective and outcome of your life:
Red: As a color of the base chakra, red is associated with life force and raw sexuality. Therefore, thoughtfully placed red walls can add a steamy and intense or passionate element to a bedroom that may encourage improvements in your sex and love life. However red is also associated with anger, so perhaps red is a better choice for those with a naturally calmer temperament to begin with.
Orange– Orange is another color that could help boost confidence and sexuality and is also good for creativity and energy. Orange is great for a room where you want to foster conversation or the creation of art.
Yellow– Yellow walls add a burst of sunshine-y light that can enhance mental focus and help a person who tends towards laziness to pick up the pace and get some inspiration to finish work or start new projects.
Green– Green walls can be energizing and calming at the same time, helping one to be in a calm alert mental state. This color could affect your psychology to help you be productive without going overboard and may also increase feelings of peacefulness and health as it resonates in the color of nature itself.
Blue– For those with nerves that are a little fried, who suffer anxiety or have a hard time falling asleep, blue is an excellent choice. Blue is the color of water and as such it brings an energy of calmness and serenity, improving sleep, helping to make communication civil and clear, and creating an atmosphere of rejuvenation after a hard day’s work.
Purple– shades of purple and indigo are supreme colors of intuition and higher artistry. These are dramatic tones that could be useful for those who are interested in deepening their meditation practice, lucid dreaming, or reaching altered states of awareness. As purple is a color of wisdom and knowing, it can help build confidence and sureness in oneself.
White– White is a color of purity, cleanliness, and inclusion of the full spectrum of colors. White can also create a clean and serene feeling atmosphere that exudes light and fresh energies. White is excellent for promoting generosity and kindness.
