Be expressive with the Colour Orange

Colour Influence is the first in a series where we look at colour in our life. Next we took a basic look at chakras.

Over the next few posts we’ll look at the 7 chakra colours as well as white and black. Each chakra colour has influence on a physical, emotional and mental level. We’ll also see how the colour is reflected in our clothes and décor. Starting at the Base Chakra with Colour RED

Today we’re looking at the colour ORANGE     

The Sacral chakra is in the lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel, it’s colour is ORANGE.

This is our connection and ability to accept new experiences.Colour orange

  • Physically –  This chakra animates the body supplying it with nutrients and loving warm physical contact with others.  A healthy ORANGE chakra would reveal plenty of outgoing energy.
  • Emotionally – ORANGE encourages joy, fun and pleasure. Positive qualities show courage, confidence and good communication. A negative response is fearful, shy and timid.
  • Mentally – On a positive note you will show a happy interest in life. Be excited about the future. A negative display is where you try too hard, creating unnecessary strain and possible depletion.

Orange is the colour of life, love and joy!

Visualization and Meditation with ORANGE

Use the colour Orange in meditation visualisation techniques where you let Orange wash over and around you. Creating confidence, spontaneity and humour.

The colour ORANGE in Décor

Orange has the demanding qualities of red with the lightness of yellow. It is uplifting, warm and soothing. Use Orange in areas where people communicate and enjoy themselves.  Best used in kitchens, playrooms, living and dining areas, recreation and hallways. Limit the colour in bedrooms and quiet areas. Great as a colour for trims and accent with cushions, linens, paintings and other touches.

Orange is expressive and cosy!

    • Thanks Toni, colour is fascinating. These posts are only touching the surface. When you understand how colour works on yourself you can certainly make it work in your favour.

    • Keri orange is an interesting colour. On a visit to Australia Hilary Clinton wore an orange suit.A gorgeous shade on her. It made her stand out in a good way, she was definitely here to communicate and energy would have been needed for such a large trip. Not a colour everyone can wear, but was fabulous on her.
