How Colour Affects Your Attitude

Even without realizing it, we associate color with emotion.  Do the phrases feeling blue or green with jealously ring any bells?  Colour resonates with everyone differently and can elicit different emotional reactions from people.  What colour do you gravitate to when you’re feeling happy?  Sad?  Excited?  Here are some common colour/mood associations:

Feeling Balanced? 

If you’re in the mood for change or growth, you may find yourself moving toward more greens like Emerald and Peridot.  Green gives freedom to pursue new ideas and protection from anxieties connected to worldly demands.

Feeling Mysterious? 

Like to use your imagination to the fullest?  Then seek purples like Tanzanite and Amethyst.  In addition to the mystical association, purples also help in rebalancing life, removing obstacles, and energizing.

Feeling Powerful? 

Spice things up by throwing some oranges like Citrine and Spessartite Garnet into the mix.  Orange hues increase creativity and give us relief when things start to get too serious.  They can also give you the confidence to become more involved in a variety of things.

A blank slate.  A clean sheet of paper.  Whites like Pearl and White Sapphire are most closely associated with a fresh beginning.  Wearing whites are known to help clear clutter and bring mental clarity to situations.  It’s also a pure colour, cleansing thoughts and actions.

As I mentioned at the start, colour affects everyone differently.  Some may identify with the colour associations presented here, though some may not.  What colours resonate with you?  What are your favorite colors to wear?
