The world has PLENTY of color, we just aren’t taking advantage of it. Everyday we wear “drab” we think “drab” we even see “drab.” The most important nouns in our world are covered in head to toe black and white. Why the lack of color? Who ever decided that we needed to take away the beautiful colors God has given us and replace them with Black and White? Take a look at your closet, just a quick look and most of us will see a wide array of black, white and grey options… True for you? Of course we also have dark brown, and dark red and dark green… The professional attire if you will. I don’t know one person with a “Real Job” who would wear rainbows. No shame, I don’t even have rainbows in my tiny wardrobe – they are silly. Right?
Well, yes they kind of are. Brief story : This weekend Brett and I hightailed it far away from Gwinnett County to a little place called Johnson City, TN. We went to see friends from Yellowstone… Hippies and Gypsies - They are my favorite. When I tell you that these people constantly smile and laugh I am not exaggerating, I wonder (and sometimes ask) how they manage to stay so uplifted… It isn’t natural. In my opinion, its laughter a room sized closet filled with a gigantic prism of colors.
Color is a gift from God. - Or more technically speaking a gift from the sun, which God made for us. The sun emits a great deal of energy and sustains our lives. Without sunlight our moods drift ever so slowly into the depths of despair and when that bright light shines on us again its as if we are magically catapulted into bliss. The vibrations of color are a source of power and fulfillment. By not taking advantage of them, we are wasting a gift.
All of the colors have different psychological meaning attached to them and from mounds of expert research this is what they have come up with.
Blue – Peace and Understanding Yellow – Clarity and Orderliness
Red- Energy and Enthusiasm Orange – Creativity and Playfulness
Green – Harmony and Sympathy Indigo – Awareness and Wisdom
Get out there and put on some color… I bet you’ll feel better :)
