Mona Lisa's spoof Each colour is endowed with its own set of properties and affects people accordingly. The research on colours is ongoing; what we have here is based on the latest findings.





Go ahead, find out about your colour!!
RED

  • Red, having the slowest vibration, acts on the emotions quicker than any other colour.
  • It is, almost universally, the colour of passion and warmth but in its deeper shade of scarlet, red can instigate the beast in man.
  • It stands for all the vigour and excitement in life, and induces feelings of strength and vitality in a person.
  • The unfavourable influence of red can trigger off strong emotions, not only of fear and anger but also of irrepressible lust.
  • In its crimson shade, the colour denotes the painful aspects of life, whereas the pink shade evokes maternal affection.
  • Red can be used in treating irregularities in blood circulation, but it is not very conducive to people who suffer from mental maladies.
GREEN

  • The various shades of green are the joyous colours of nature.
  • Green is the invigorating touch, especially for those suffering from mental fatigue.
  • Green represents jealousy in its negative aspect, with darker shades tending to be extremely depressing.
  • While yellow-green stimulates generous feelings, spring green heralds new life.
VIOLET

  • Violet being the fastest vibration in the spectrum is also the quickest one to disappear.
  • Traditionally a symbol of regal splendour and spiritual authority, violet is associated with wealth and fecundity.
  • Violet, in its positive aspect, appeals to the higher faculties of man - mastery over ones' self, search for truth and creativity.
  • If violet stands for honour on the one hand, it can also denote deceiton the other, and one can easily be taken in by its pretence.
BROWN

  • Resembling the colour of Mother Earth, the strongest assertion of brown is in its relationship with fertility.
  • It is a very heavy colour and should be avoided for draperies and dress.
  • Brown is totally out of favour with the vital force of life, abhors the opposite sex and signifies decadence.
  • Interestingly, this dull shade is also thought of as representing the plane from which beauty is born, and thus serves as an excellent backdrop for art objects.
WHITE

  • White, being the perfect blend of all the colours of the spectrum, is the touchstone of purity and harmony.
  • It is averse to all the lowly traits in man - malice, deceit, envy and violence, and always favours the revelation of truth.
BLUE

  • Majestic blue is the colour of heavenly consciousness, of truth and cosmic harmony.
  • Blue evokes a sense of sublime calm, and as opposed to red, it tends to quieten passion.
  • Soft blue clothing, besides preventing a tan in women, can arouse the protective instinct in men.
  • Blue and green when combined can favour a prolific outburst of creativity.
  • Too much of blue on the other hand could be a depressing influence.
YELLOW

  • Primarily a cheerful colour, yellow brightens up the room and signifies wisdom and jubilation.
  • Golden yellow, which stands for peace, compassion and creativity, inspires spiritual elevation.
  • In its negative aspect, exposure to very bright yellow can lead to an over stimulation of the psyche which could then have disastrous consequences.
  • Yellow fruits and vegetables generally act as laxatives to the bowel and also soothe the nerves.
INDIGO

  • Indigo partakes of both blue and violet, and represents a combination of disciplined rationality and creative intuition.
  • It resembles, not only the duality of the human metabolic process, but also the natural law of growth and change.
  • Fruitless endeavours and consequent stagnation represent some of the unfavourable aspects of indigo.
  • Indigo acts as the threshold of success that comes after a period of failure, and in that it represents the healing crisis of the natural healing art.
ORANGE

  • Orange is a strong stimulant for ambition, and also motivates ones' creative pursuits.
  • It not only engenders a sense of self-esteem but also fosters a sense of preservation of fellow creatures.
  • Prolonged exposure to orange can be a cause of restlessness and nervous breakdown.
  • Orange, being the colour of many fruits and vegetables, stands for nourishment and also represents the attractive force between elements.
BLACK

  • The most obvious aspect of the colour black is the absence of light.
  • Black, the colour of the shroud, has traditionally been associated with death and bereavement.
  • Since black absorbs a lot of energy too much of proximity to black can drain a person of his/her vitality.
  • Black inevitably invokes the dark desires that lurk beneath the surface prompting people to commit the worst crimes.
