PART 6 – COLOUR
This week in Part 6 of my latest blog, read about how to use colour in your house to create positive energy in your home and surroundings.
Colour can be used to create positive energy in your home and surroundings by energizing or inspiring mental activity and creativity. Choose soft colours that draw you in and not ones that are so strong they tire and overwhelm you. Different colours have different associations, and colour affects the atmosphere and even the perceived temperature of a room. In the next issue, we’ll look at the full spectrum of colours in more detail.
For instance, pink is a warm colour, and is welcoming and soothing. It is the first colour we ever see because it is the colour of our mother’s womb. It is therefore a maternal colour and very welcoming. It represents healing, love, romance, joy and happiness. It also helps to evaporate anger, raises the vibration of a room and is a healthy colour to have around you. In some countries pink is used in prison holding cells to calm down agitated prisoners.
Blue is calming and cool, and represents protection, consideration and care. It is considered the colour of trust and reliability. This is why it is much used by larger companies for their logos and their staff uniforms as it encourages consumer trust and shareholder investment. For these reasons it is also considered the best colour to wear for a job interview.
Bear in mind that strongly patterned images play havoc with our brain, such as dark and light stripes and spotted patterns, as these can cause arguments because they are tiring and confuse the brain. Dark ceilings shrink our energy field causing us to feel depressed, and ‘hospital green’ makes us ill.
Next week in Part 7 – Colours, read about which colours to use in your house to create positive energy in your home and surroundings.
