Default Know Your Colour


Red, having the slowest vibration, acts on the emotions quicker than any other colour.
It is, almost universally, the colour of passion and warmth but in its deeper shade of scarlet, red can instigate the beast in man.
It stands for all the vigour and excitement in life, and induces feelings of strength and vitality in a person.
The unfavourable influence of red can trigger off strong emotions, not only of fear and anger but also of irrepressible lust.
In its crimson shade, the colour denotes the painful aspects of life, whereas the pink shade evokes maternal affection.
Red can be used in treating irregularities in blood circulation, but it is not very conducive to people who suffer from mental maladies.


Orange is a strong stimulant for ambition, and also motivates ones' creative pursuits.
It not only engenders a sense of self-esteem but also fosters a sense of preservation of fellow creatures.
Prolonged exposure to orange can be a cause of restlessness and nervous breakdown.
Orange, being the colour of many fruits and vegetables, stands for nourishment and also represents the attractive force between elements.


Primarily a cheerful colour, yellow brightens up the room and signifies wisdom and jubilation.
Golden yellow, which stands for peace, compassion and creativity, inspires spiritual elevation.
In its negative aspect, exposure to very bright yellow can lead to an over stimulation of the psyche which could then have disastrous consequences.
Yellow fruits and vegetables generally act as laxatives to the bowel and also soothe the nerves.


The various shades of green are the joyous colours of nature.
Green is the invigorating touch, especially for those suffering from mental fatigue.
Green represents jealousy in its negative aspect, with darker shades tending to be extremely depressing.
While yellow-green stimulates generous feelings, spring green heralds new life.


Majestic blue is the colour of heavenly consciousness, of truth and cosmic harmony.
Blue evokes a sense of sublime calm, and as opposed to red, it tends to quieten passion.
Soft blue clothing, besides preventing a tan in women, can arouse the protective instinct in men.
Blue and green when combined can favour a prolific outburst of creativity.
Too much of blue on the other hand could be a depressing influence.


Indigo partakes of both blue and violet, and represents a combination of disciplined rationality and creative intuition.
It resembles, not only the duality of the human metabolic process, but also the natural law of growth and change.
Fruitless endeavours and consequent stagnation represent some of the unfavourable aspects of indigo.
Indigo acts as the threshold of success that comes after a period of failure, and in that it represents the healing crisis of the natural healing art.


Violet being the fastest vibration in the spectrum is also the quickest one to disappear.
Traditionally a symbol of regal splendour and spiritual authority, violet is associated with wealth and fecundity.
Violet, in its positive aspect, appeals to the higher faculties of man - mastery over ones' self, search for truth and creativity.
If violet stands for honour on the one hand, it can also denote deceiton the other, and one can easily be taken in by its pretence.


White, being the perfect blend of all the colours of the spectrum, is the touchstone of purity and harmony.
It is averse to all the lowly traits in man - malice, deceit, envy and violence, and always favours the revelation of truth.


The most obvious aspect of the colour black is the absence of light.
Black, the colour of the shroud, has traditionally been associated with death and bereavement.
Since black absorbs a lot of energy too much of proximity to black can drain a person of his/her vitality.
Black inevitably invokes the dark desires that lurk beneath the surface prompting people to commit the worst crimes.


Resembling the colour of Mother Earth, the strongest assertion of brown is in its relationship with fertility.
It is a very heavy colour and should be avoided for draperies and dress.
Brown is totally out of favour with the vital force of life, abhors the opposite sex and signifies decadence.
Interestingly, this dull shade is also thought of as representing the plane from which beauty is born, and thus serves as an excellent backdrop for art objects.
