Let's continue with our discussion of colors and how they affect us. Some of this may be surprising to you.
First of all, let's consider Orange.
While red is associated with fiery heat, orange is more closely linked to the more gentle warmth of the sun and of fire. True, orange is certainly dynamic, but more thoughtful and controlled than red.
Curiosity is one of the characteristics of the orange vibration and this brings exploration and creativity, particularly on a practical level.
Strangely, surveys have often found orange to be the least popular of colors (green and blue being the favourites)... is this because exploring and reaching out can sometimes be painful?
Using orange properly can provide some surprising results. In times of stress, or after a shock or surprise wearing shades of orange can help return you to a state of balance.
Orange can be good for the following:
. Low vitality
. Poor appetite
Put orange in your life when there is…
• A feeling of boredom and bleakness, particularly when you feel time is dragging.
• A lack of interest in what is going on around you, even to the point where you don’t want to become involved at all.
• An obsessive need to have things in their “proper” place and resentment of changes in familiar routines.
• A lack of sense of humor.
• A fear of experiencing pleasure through the senses and of enjoying sensuality.
• An inability to let go of the past.
• A problem with blocked experiences in life, such as a decrease in personal creativity.
Now how about Yellow ?
Yellow is a bright, sunny color. Most people will recognize the sensation of warmth and vitality when looking at pure yellow. Different shades of yellow produce different reactions. A clean, light yellow can help to clear the mind whereas a yellow that has green tinge to it can create a degree of discomfort, disorientation and even nausea.
The functions of the yellow vibration have to do with decision making... our decisions rely on information. More importantly, knowing which bits of information are relevant.
The digestive, immune and nervous system all reflect yellow frequencies. Both the digestive and immune system rely on correct decisions as to what is useful to the body and what is dangerous.
The nervous system relays on information to the brain which then acts upon the signals. Fear and worry are the consequence of an imbalance of yellow energy, when wrong information and a lack of logical thought result in an inability to act positively.
There are some simple ways to use yellow in a positive fashion. When working at your computer a yellow mouse mat will help improve your concentration and keep you alert.

. Low self-esteem
. Short attention span
. Skin problems
. Exam nerves
