Playing with colour is useful and fun!
It can be as therapeutic for adults as it is for kids, and can make a real difference in the grown-up world.
It’s worth knowing about the subtle meaning of colours, and the effect they can have on us.
If we don’t like a colour, we apparently need to spend more time with it, in order to create more balance in our lives. The Color Meanings & Symbolism Chart gives some more interesting colour connections we can work with.
This isn’t just abstract theory either. I generally dislike yellows and reds. They’re unsettling colours for me. I’m on the blue-violet end of the spectrum, where it feels more peaceful. So I try to incorporate some of those warmer colours into my life, to give that balance.
But for others yellow really is a psychologically pleasing colour symbolising wisdom, while red is all about passion. Blues and greens can be seen as being cold and untrustworthy.
We’re all so interestingly different, aren’t we :~)
What’s your favourite colour? Do you know why?…”

If you’re into wicca or chakras, you are familiar with the effects that
can have on the subconscious, and if you know Law of Attraction, you know that the subconscious affects the vibrations you are GIVING off and thus ATTRACTING to yourself.
Here’s a really cool graphic on the psychology of COLORS =)
