In continuing our discussion about the colors and how they can affect us, we certainly can't overlook what may be two of the most favorites of all the colors...Green and Blue!
First, let's consider the color green.
Green is the color of nature, the color of the plant world. Green is the middle of the color spectrum and is therefore seen as a color of balance. It can be interpreted as either a warm or cool color, depending on the shade.
Green stands for growth and the desire to expand and increase. It is the vibration of relationships because in growing and expanding we meet others around us.
If you feel trapped by external circumstances or restricted in some way, taking a walk in green surroundings or surrounding yourself with green will restore your balance.
Avoid green in situations where you need to be ‘on the ball’ or react quickly as to what is happening, as the color is such a good relaxer. It is good for the following:
. Heart problems
. Fear of emotional involvement
Put green in your life when there is...
. A need for new ideas.
. A need to let change happen but also there is a fear of the unknown .
. A restricted feeling caused by circumstances such as being housebound or feeling trapped by other people’s rules and regulations.
. Negative “green” emotions such as jealously, envy and greed.
Now let's consider blue...
There are two aspects of blue. On the one side there is the search for information and detail and on the other side the experience of rest and peacefulness without any particular focus or thought. This seems to be a contradiction but the uniting factor is the desire for balance.
All kinds of communication like listening, talking and learning are “blue” activities. In fact, blue is the color of our throat chakra which is related to how we express ourselves. Blue is the color of distance, it gives a quality of detachment and devotion. Think about how gazing into the sky or deep blue water brings a sense of calm. Blue seems to somehow free our minds from normal activity.
You can use blue to help the energy flow of communication whether you are listening to yourself or someone else. To help remember a speech or anything else you need to remember, write it on blue paper.
Avoid this color if you are feeling cold or low or feel any stiffness or tightness in your body. It is good for the following conditions:
. High blood pressure
. Fear of speaking out
. Cuts, stings or burns
. Menstrual problems
. Fear of confrontation
