Healing With Color
Brighten Your Life With Wardrobe Color Therapy
Colors say a lot about how we feel. How often have you rolled out of bed on a rainy day feeling depressed, and the only thing you want to wear is a grey pant suit? Snap out of it! You’re only making things worse. The energy behind colors changes with your mood and intention. You don’t need to plan an entire wardrobe around color choice. Why not let color therapy play a role in your day? Let’s say work requires black and white business attire. Why not spruce it up with a blue scarf for tranquility or green shoes to attract abundance. Nobody has to be in on the secret but you. The trick is in the conscious decision to use color to your advantage. The intention to add some red for courage has a very different effect on your day then adding red because you’re angry. You can actually “ask” the colors you choose to aid you in your goals for the day.
Wear this to connect yourself with feelings of courage and power. Red can be used to touch your sense of personal authority. It’s a great color for stating to the world “I’m here and I’m confident in who I am.” Red is also associated with life force energy and can be a good color when you’re feeling depleted.
This is a great color for getting into a sunny mood. Yellow represents willpower, approachability, happiness, summer and making things go your way. Wear it on days when you need to manifest opportunities.
Pink and rose are both calming and loving. They are colors of friendship, compassion and romance. Wear a little of either of them when you want to make amends with friends or co-workers. They are both associated with Venus, the goddess of love.
This is the color of the heart chakra. It is prolific in mother nature—helping us connect to life and why we are here. It’s a fantastic color for attracting money and abundance, but its true powers lie in helping to open your heart. This is a great color to wear after heartbreak, coupled with sky blue for healing.
Long associated with royalty and authority, a well chosen purple can be used to draw out your inner king or queen. It is also a color associated with spirituality and can be used to connect us to our psychic powers. Wear on days when you need your intuition boosted.
Blue is the color of healing and tranquility. It has a deeply calming effect and can be used to aid with anxiety in you and those around you. It is also a good color to throw on when trying to resolve anger. Blue is the color of peace and is often associated with Mother Mary.
Believe it or not, orange is actually associated with the second chakra and our sense of sensuality and sexuality. Although not a common wardrobe choice, a little orange can connect us to our body. As with yellow and red, it is a power color and can be used to make statements of confidence or lighten the mood in the room.
Brown is a nature color best used in combination with other earth tones. When used with green or blue it can help reduce stress and help you feel more grounded and centered.
White is purity at its best! A personal favorite, white is quite versatile. Use white to lift spirits, connect you to innocence, cleanse your aura, reflect and repel negative energy, connect you with divine energy and make you approachable. White also doubles as a color enhancer. Wear white with a splash of whatever color energy you’re wanting to manifest and it will magnify that color’s effects.
Gold and Silver
They are both magical colors to be sure. Like white, they can serve as color energy enhancers when added to an outfit. Gold taps into solar energy, wealth, magic and fame. Silver is more feminine and helps to access lunar and stellar wisdom, psychic powers, the mysterious and the ability to stand out like a star!
Go ahead, play with your wardrobe. Remember that the key is the intention you attach to what you put on. Grab that yellow umbrella and say, ‘Today I will deflect the blues!” Throw on a pink scarf and ask the energy to help you connect to a new love interest. Most importantly, experiment and have fun
