Color is a fascinating subject for me. I believe people are affected by color. A strong dislike of a particular color can stem from a childhood trauma or a bad experience. We subconsciously link the color to that event. On the contrary, a color may be comforting to us because of a particularly good experience.
The superstitions and cultural preferences of color intrigue me. One group views white as a color of morning while another associates it with life and new beginnings.
Now, color used as an alternative medicine; well, I’ll just say it’s interesting.
Color therapy is the use of color and light to help balance “energy.” I’ve never tried this (and probably never will), but if you have, tell me how it’s working out for you.
~Do it yourself color therapy~
Take a clean translucent colored bottle, the color depends on what you want to accomplish, (check my color posts for help) and fill it three-fourths of the way up with distilled water. I’ve also read you can use regular drinking water. Cap it and place it in a sunny window 6-8 hours. Supposedly, the sunlight fills up the extra space and the light and water merge and become charged with the color. You can either bathe in the color infused water or drink it. Disclaimer: Do at your own risk. I take no responsibility for this not working or having adverse affects. Personally, I would use it within 24 hours.
Though I don’t put too much stock in “the color you wear gives insight into your daily persona theory,” I do believe in power colors. Everyone has a personal power color. Your power color is not a color you wear every day. It’s a color worn on special occasions. It gives you a boost of confidence and makes your stride a little bolder. People take notice and listen to you, friends and coworkers usually respond with, “You look really good today” or “That was the best presentation.” The color may change over time as you change. Mine, at this point in time, is a bright bold red. Several years ago, it was a deep navy blue.
