Understanding What Colours Communicate
“Each chakra has its own colour and the moment any colour is reduced, you try to top-up that colour with the help of objects of that colour”
In scientific terminology, each colour has its own wavelength, hence it may act as an agent that fills up an area with different qualities of vibrations. Colours are only merely shades, but a perfect language that has tremendous power to communicate emotions, intensions and sentiments instantly. Vastu Science talks of enhancing positive vibrations inside your home or workplace. Hence, it uses colours as a strong tool to handle various energy related issues. So, understanding how a small change like the colour of a wall, can bring about a change in your attitude, thinking processes and decision making abilities, is a subject that needs a careful and systematic approach.
Colours And Their Significance
Vastu Shastra, the age-old Indian Vaidic Science has already laid down broad guidelines on this responsive subject but their intelligent applications is essential to get the required results, because you may come across situations where different colours and designs are used for different purpose. For example, red and yellow denotes something religious, green is for healing, orange stands for hunger. Blue signifies the sky, black denotes the night, white for peace and red for caution. Similarly the series, indications and meanings of colours has no end, but the innovative and creative use of colours may certainly prove to be a boon to handle and balance various day-to-day situations.
Vibrant colours comprise a mix category of shades including all attractive, fast and multi shades. There may be a chain of vibrant colours like red, orange, green, yellow and purple; the emerging pink, shining white, bright blue and their various combinations and variations generally complement each other. This denotes the lite energy, enthusiasm and excitement. Children and the youth are fascinated by such shades, which are also appreciated in Vastu Science. One may use these colours in the drawing room, any wall in the bedroom, in the family lounge and foyer for better liveliness. However, the ceiling should never be painted in these colours. White is the best for ceilings.
These are the shades which are called the colours of peace, calmness and tranquillity. White, off white, ivory, very light green, sea green, off yellow and other light colours in a matt finish, belong to this category. As these colours are not loud, they may help in concentration. And according to Vastu Shastra. these colours may be used in the bedrooms of elderly people, the study and library and in the puja space. Also, as per Vastu Shastra, these shades may be used on the walls in all the directions except, the south.
Red, orange, dark yellow, marine blue and black are the boosters which may be used as a mix with other shades to bring a feeling of contrast. These are young shades and may be used everywhere except in the ‘medication room’ and ‘meditation room.’ These shades generate a feeling of youthfulness and makes you ready to accept challenges and gear up to live a royal life. Therefore, these may also be included in the interior of the house wherever applicable. Nevertheless, it is wise to use red, maroon, dark yellow and similar colours in the south-east direction of your premises, which is the domain of the ‘fire’ element. These bright colours denote warmth. Hence, use them for your office room, not only for an attractive look, but also for better ideas and new inspiration.
Colours And Your Personal Belongings
Besides using colours on your walls, you also often choose them for your personal use. Your clothes and personal belongings like your pens, briefcase, car, towel, laptop, mobile phone etc. are a few examples. According to the theory of ‘personal energy field,’ colours of your chakras are reflected in your colour related decisions. It implies that according to Aura Science, there are seven chakras (the energy centres) in your body. And each chakra has its own colour and the moment any colour is reduced, you try to top-up that colour with the help of objects of that colour.
Therefore, whenever you are deliberating about a particular colour for a particular thing, just relax your influences and pick up the one which your eyes are repeatedly returning to. Amazingly, the colours of your aura and all the chakras keep on changing with time, emotions, gains, loss, spirituality, sorrow and excitement. And accordingly, you tend to go for a particular colour which your auric body needs desperately. Hence, never copy others while choosing shades for your belongings and never get influenced by the salesperson or your friends. According to your state of mind or mood, try to analyse which shade is trying fancying your eyes, personality, needs and decor.
