Spiritual Color Meaning. . .   

by Presley Love    Colors evoke feelings and emotions, some of us are drawn to certain colors and yet find other colors very unappealing.   Color effects our mood and has more influence on our lives than we may think...

Understanding The Meaning of Colors

If you understand the meaning of colors you can match your clothes to your intentions for the day, or you can decorate your home in the colors that reflects your true self and what is most important to you. 

Colors and color meaning have been powerful symbols to mankind since the dawn of time.  

The famous Psychic Edgar Cayce placed great emphasis on the spiritual value of Colors, Color Meaning,
Gem Stones and Crystals.

His book: "Edgar Cayce on the Power of Color, Stones and Crystals" explores the subject of energy vibrations within colors, stones, and crystals and how they have a beneficial influence when carried or worn by someone.  

So, what do the colors mean to you?

How does the psychology of color affect you?

What impression do you create with your wardrobe, the decor of your home or your car?

When you know the powerful symbolism and psychology of colors you give yourself a secret advantage in many situations!

 Rainbows, Chakras, Auras

Rainbows, Chakras and Aura colors are all comprised of the 7 colors of the visible spectrum. 

All other colors come from variations and blends of these 7 colors, from these colors millions of hues and shades exist. 

Every year paint companies play with color trying to develop new exciting colors the market will respond to.

The colors of the rainbow, chakra colors and colors of the aura all have significant color meanings, and as with all symbolism we all seem to have a hunger to know what it means to us... personally.  

We each choose colors for how they make us feel. 

Do the colors in your environment or wardrobe need to be updated to reflect what you would like to project into the world?

The Magic of Colors

As a child I just loved having the "big box" of crayons, all of the colors in their raw form spoke to me of limitless possibility.   When I began to paint in my early 30's I found myself once again collecting as many colors as I could find.    I love colorful artwork, the play of colors is pure magic. 

Color meaning is used for healing, magic, divination, and of course we choose the colors that reflect our moods and desires for our clothing, for interior design, and for our cars... it all reflects how we feel about ourselves. 

Colors have profound spiritual meanings and can greatly effect our vibrations,and even how others perceive us.
