The Power of Color

How does color effect us?

Why do you feel comfortable and relaxed in one room, but hyper and anxious in another? Why do you choose to wear certain clothing depending on how you feel on a particular day? Why are you attracted to certain advertisements and not to others? Why do you feel attracted to certain colors and not to others? The answers to all of these questions pertain to the colors involved and how these colors affect us on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level.

Everywhere you look there is color. Color touches our lives everyday in so many ways: the colors we choose for our clothing; colors in a room; the color of the foods we consume; colors used in advertising, etc.

Color have an influence on our emotions, our actions, our health and how we respond to people, things and ideas. The effects of color on our moods, health, and way of thinking have been studied by scientists for years. Your preference for one color over another is related to the way that color makes you feel. Specific colors can also have an effect on specific diseases.

How is it that color has such an effect on us? Each color has a certain energy (or vibration or frequency). When the energy of a color enters our bodies, it stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands in the brain. This creates the production of certain hormones, which in turn affect a variety of physiological processes. This explains why color has been found to have such a direct influence on our thoughts, moods, and behavior. Color even has an effect on blind people, because color is sensed as energy vibrations created within the body.

The vibration of each color also affects our subtle energy systems---the aura and the charkas (energy centers of the body).

How Can We Use Color in our Lives?

There are many ways that you can use the effects of color to benefit you in your daily life. Here are just a few examples:
  • Choose the colors of your clothing according to how you want to feel for a particular day or what type of energy you want to project.
  • Work with crystals of an appropriate color. Wear them or place them in a room to receive the benefits of their color.
  • Plan out what colors you want to use in a room (paint, furniture, decorations, etc.) according to the effect you wish to produce (calming, energizing, inviting, etc.)
  • To enhance the property of a certain color in your life, eat foods of that color.
  • Use colored light bulbs to create changes in mood.
  • Use squares of colored construction paper. Simply gaze at the color you wish to absorb for 15 minutes or so.
  • Absorb the effects of a color by taking a color bath. You can simply add some food grade food coloring to bath water or look for special "color baths" that are now available.
  • Color is also being used in the treatment of disease. This is beyond the scope of this article. For more information, check out the book resources at the end of the article.
