Hello, beautiful! I feel like it’s been forever since I posted and I’ve got a bit of a brilliant life update for y’all. I’m officially employed! Yep, I started just a week ago and am starting to get into the routine of things. It’s quite a lot of work, to be honest, but the environment is very cheerful and positive so overall I enjoy it. I feel so blessed to have a job. I’m a shy/nervous person naturally and this job happens to involve a lot of social interactions. Next weekend I’ll make sure to post up something about how I psych myself up for my shifts, how I manage to stay relaxed despite a stressful schedule, and any other tricks I’ve learned so far.
Now, let’s dive deep into this week’s topic: colors and their power. By power, I’m specifically referring to the symbolism of various colors; i.e. the associations and meanings we have assigned to each of them. I’ve mentioned before how symbolism can help you achieve goals, but here I’m going to go much more into detail and focus on just color symbolism. Here is a relatively average guide to colors and their meanings (you may recognize them easily since we tend to have certain meanings attached to specific colors):
Red- love, passion, life, fierceness, power
Orange- warmth, the Sun, positivity, energy, creativity, optimisim
Yellow- brightness, warmth, success, the Sun, wealth
Green- prosperity, health, nature, harmony, balance, relaxation
Blue- tranquility, peace, relaxation, calm, rest
Violet/Purple- intuition, magic, power, the Moon, enchantment, spirit, imagination, dreams
Pink- romance, love, peace within (mind and body), sweetness, kindness, beauty, emotional healing, compassion
White- purity, magic, positivity, goodness, the Moon, freshness, hope, spirit, clarity
Black- warding off negativity, mystery, grief, power
Brown- warmth, nature, being genuine and honest, comfort
Grey- helpfulness, knowledge, wisdom, security, sadness, conservative, neutral, balance
Of course, as individuals we may also have our own personal interpretations and meanings of colors. For example, I consider green a much more positive and happy color than yellow. So take this as it is- a simplified guide- and feel free to go with what you feel is right.
The goal is to use the symbolism of colors to your advantage. Pick a color that symbolizes something you need, desire, or want to achieve. Dress in that color. Paint your nails different shades of the color. Use that color of sticky post-it notes and write with a pen that has that color ink. Surround yourself with a certain color and you also surround yourself with that color’s meanings and symbols. Use different colors to remind you of or help you obtain something. Test it out for a week or so and hopefully you’ll see a difference in your life.
Much love and good vibes,
