How different colours can support your wellbeing
Do you have a favourite colour?
Is there a colour you dislike?
Maybe you have had different colours throughout your life that you have been drawn to, and literally can’t get enough of. Or on the flip side, colours you can’t stand and won’t go near.
Every colour has different qualities which, depending on you as an individual, can support, soothe, bring up triggers for deeper insight, create awareness and healing, and have an effect on your overall wellbeing.
In this piece I will be sharing with you about the aspects of a few colours (from the Colour Mirrors system) and how having that particular colour around you (such as in items you have, clothes you wear, having flowers/plants in that colour etc, using it to paint/draw in etc) in different ways can support your wellbeing, as well as give you an insight into what might be going on for you on a conscious and un-conscious level.
Colour Mirrors is a system (of coloured bottles of oils and essences) that tunes into the power of colour as a mirror for what is going on inside. The colours (and combinations) that you are drawn to and repelled by can reveal where there might be healing needed, as well as show your talents, gifts, and more.
To illustrate, when I first began working with the colour gold, I had a migraine and was bed-bound in serious pain for three days. I literally couldn’t do anything. Then in the days that followed, I experienced lots of triggers around me stepping up into what I was being called into, stepping into my power, which came up in all areas of my life, from work to seemingly meaningless interactions.
Then as I began to go into it to hold and acknowledge what was rising, I experienced some deep healing around past lives in Egypt. Sometimes you don’t even realise what’s coming up, but colour has this magical way of bringing up what you need to release – it truly is an activator. It can then also be used as the balm or remedy to hold you through what’s rising.
Working with colour
To begin, I recommend bringing your awareness to an issue that might be rising for you, or something you would like guidance on, when it comes to your wellbeing, then ask yourself which colour would support you with it. Then take a look at the list below to see more about it.
Or if you don’t have anything in particular rising you could simply notice what colour/s you are drawn to or repelled by right now, and then see what this might be a reflection of from the list below.
Alternatively, if you feel you would like more or less of the qualities of a particular colour (from the list below) you can proactively use that colour more in your life and let it work its magic with, through and for you.
Below is a list of some colours and a few of the qualities/aspect (both ‘positive’ and ‘negative’) that each colour can be a reflection of from Colour Mirrors. With the qualities listed, take what resonates and leave what doesn’t as this will be what you need at this time. One caveat is if you are particularly repelled by an aspect in the list, it might also mean there is something in there for you to look into more deeply, that will support you…
Some colours and their qualities
Copper is a colour of grounding, earthiness, and a deeper connection to earth and being in the body. It can also be about being ungrounded, hiding your light, not feeling safe on earth or in your body, issues with mother or mothering.
Red is about leadership, drive, ambition, assertiveness, confidence and courage. It can also be about judgements (of yourself and others), struggle, boundary issues, over-giving, fatigue, or material wealth.
Pink is about compassion, unconditional love, romance, sensuality, mothering and connecting more to the feminine side. It can also be about money issues, feeling unheard, feeling unloved, people pleasing, victimhood and not being able to receive.
Coral can be about being nurturing, caring, sensitive, loving, sensitive to your environment, accepting yourself unconditionally, expanding into your greatness. I can also be about struggling with emotions, over-sensitivity, neediness, feeling unloved, over-achieving, feeling undeserving and feeling unworthy.
Orange is a colour of bliss, manifestation, creativity and sexuality. It can also be about co-dependency, shocks, and trauma
Gold is about wisdom, authentic power, spirituality, purpose, I AMness, alchemy, abundance, new ways of being, and wholeness. It can also relate to addictions, low self esteem, abuse of power, fear of your power, control issues, fear expressed as anger and egotism.
Yellow is a colour of joy, optimism, sunshine, childlike enjoyment. It can also be about fear, confusion, stress, too much focus on the mind.
Olive is about hope, new beginnings, feminine power, creative power, feminine leadership, and expansion. It’s also about lack of space and boundaries, envy and an inability to claim your feminine power.
Green is all about balance, harmony, trust, space, coming from the heart, giving and receiving. It’s also about jealousy, lack of boundaries, overwhelm, energy vampiring, craving space, and an inability to express anger.
Turquoise is all about creative and heartfelt communication and thinking, fluidity, trust, channeling and an ability to go with the flow. It can also be about being frozen and an inability to express emotions or feel.
Blue is all about clear communication, expression, trust, protection, being orderly and analytical. It can also be about lack of communication, lack of peace, stress and difficulty with the masculine.
Indigo is all about being intuitive, mystical, psychic, knowledgeable and deep. It can also be about trouble with authority, wanting to remain hidden, addictions and feelings of isolation.
Purple is all about spirituality, service, stability, support and being able to process grief. It can also be about feelings of depression, an inability to grieve, being judgmental, needing to rescue others, wanting to control, wanting perfection.
Magenta is all about being a healer, a bridge, BE-ing in the now, and the preciousness of the moment. It can also be about over-doing, burnout, guilt, separation, despair and over-giving.
White is all about being pure, innocent, childlike, reflective, vulnerable, unique, mercurial, artistic and able to step into the light. It can also be about suffering, being confused, forgetful, impulsive and ungrounded.
Black is all about protection, power, hibernation, the phoenix rising from the ashes. It can also be about fear of your power, karmic issues, depression or the dark side of power.
I would love to know how this resonates for you. Which colour/s and qualities are calling you to dive into more deeply when it comes to your overall wellbeing?
