  2. I love this. We used to see an aura reader who realigned our chakras. I definitely believe in colour therapy. Thanks for the reminder of the colour meanings.


  3. I can relate the emotional changes with the colors. This is a very good info about the color therapy. But, how does it work? Does the colorful dressing change our mood?


    • Yes, it can affect everything we do, generally bright colours will favor good bright moods, where as dark colours tend to make us more somber, however red is very vibrant and can create a fiery tempered person to be more inclined if the mood takes them.


  4. Reading this makes me think of my 7 year old. She has a friend at school that wears black a lot. My daughter doesn’t yet understand what rock and emo and stuff like that is. The other day she told me she felt bad for her friend and I asked why. She said, “she seems sad”. Why do you think that? She says, “because her and her parents always wear black. That’s such a sad color. Don’t get me wrong it can be beautiful, but when you only wear black everyday it seems like you are sad about something. I couldn’t do that mom, I need color! I’m a colorful person, pinks, bright colors, that’s what I am”. It just made me laugh but then it made me wonder, what made her think that black was a sad color? I love how observant and perceptive she is. 🙂
