RAINBOW INTUITION: Use your Intuition to live Colour every day
How to use your Intuition to Colour your Mood
How does colour affect our mood? What does a fave shade say about our state of mind?
Understanding how colour impacts our energy and mood is one of the easiest ways to bestow extra balance in those areas. Learn how to use your intuition and apply this vibrational energy in a practical way…
Colour is crazy-powerful, and has the ability to evoke a serious emotional response, even if you don’t know it’s happening
Whether you’re painting the walls of your bedroom, deciding between outfits for a date, or are just generally interested in up-skilling your intuition, you too can use the power of color to your advantage.
Here's how to take full advantage of the intuitive use of colour in your life ...
Red often gets an intense rap as the color of blood and fire, but when you think about it, blood is the life force, and red is to color what a Beyonce-heavy playlist is to the gym: it will give you LIFE. It’s an intense color for sure, but wielded responsibly, red can go a long way in exciting you and offering a boost of courage.
A blend of the intensity of red and the optimism of yellow, orange is the color of stimulation. It will kick your butt into gear, imparting the enthusiasm and energy you need to accomplish pretty much anything on your to-do list.
Smiley face emojis aren’t yellow by accident—the bright, cheery color is one of happiness, laughter and optimism. Yellow can wake up your mind, inspire mental agility and clarity, all while imparting an energy you might not have had before. The color of sunshine, daffodils and very cute puppies, it’s an attention-getter and a smile-inducer.
Inspiring balance and harmony, the colors of nature are naturally soothing. And all that soothing sets the stage perfectly for harmonious growth (just like plants!) and health. When you find yourself stressed or getting worked up over something, think of the strong, stable roots of a tree and the softly fluttering green leaves living in harmony with the rest of the natural world, the weather and itself.
Just like serene lakes and rolling oceans have a calming effect, so too does the blue they wear so well. Use blue to soothe your mind, body and spirit, and calm whatever fires might be brewing internally. It’s easy to turn to a fiery color in times of turmoil, but shades of blue are your best bet at remaining serene, wise, and focused on the truth and what matters.
Historically the color of royalty, purple is often associated with wealth, sophistication, wisdom and prosperity, which makes it the perfect color to rock in job interview or salary negotiation. Lighter shades like violet are colors of transformation and soothing spirituality, perfect for a quick reconnection with yourself and what’s important.
Pink of course, is associated with romance and love, but is also believed to impart a youthful energy, and what instills a more youthful energy than falling and being in love?
What’s more, pink also helps you get in touch with your true feelings aka self-love and understanding.
And more vibrant shades like magenta are thought to be magnetic….so, you know, love and literal attraction.
A colour without a hue, white is the combination of all colours everywhere. It means balance and harmony, everything coming together into one perfect hue-less “colour.”
In some cultures, white signifies purity and innocence, while in others, it indicates light, illumination and wisdom.
Either way, it’s hard to go wrong with white as it’s the perfect blank canvas, leaving you open to any possibility.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is black, the darkest colour that results from the complete absence via absorption of light. That’s right, black exists when there is no light; it is the most extreme of extremes.
It’s also a symbol for power, intelligence and strength.
In a surprise to no one, grey is often associated with feelings of calmness, quietness and contemplation, in extreme cases, indifference and apathy.
Grey is also the colour of practicality, so it’s a good option if you need to get down to business and is always a beautiful ‘canvas’ for highlights of other colours.
The colour of earth, brown has a stabilising, nurturing and grounding effect. It’s the colour of simplicity, and invites you to reconnect to your roots to get you back on solid ground.
Brown is a reliable colour, one that can make you feel safe, cosy and connected. If you’re feeling lost or flighty, reach for the richness and security of brown.
A colour linked with the divine feminine, the energy of the moon and the tides, silver is fluid, emotional and sensitive while also being calming, stabilizing and purifying.
If you’re feeling reflective or in need of some deep thinking, silver will help you reflect and shine light on what to do next.
Shiny and rare, gold is the ultimate symbol of quality, wealth, confidence, passion and courage.
These all may seem disjointed but think about it: gold is associated with success, a feat that requires confidence, passion and courage.
