We explore how different colours can radiate different moods and the way it positively impacts your well-being.
Do you remember the last time you wore clothes that made you truly feel something? At times when life feels like it’s going too fast or too slow, clothes can lose their significance to us. However, by treating colours as energy portals, we can create meaningful rhythms of how we communicate with ourselves and our social circles.
When we get dressed each morning, we use colours to tell ourselves who we aim to be and how we hope to feel. So it’s only natural that the colours we wear can have an impact on our mood and behaviour.
According to colour psychology, certain colours can evoke different emotions and communicates an essence of our self-identity.
Here's how wearing different colours can enhance your mood:
Pink: Represents creativity, ambition, peace, independence and intuitiveness.
Did you know pink could be used for medicinal purposes? It can promote restful sleep, soothe skin irritations and support healthy lymphatic function. It’s a colour worth having in your daily life, especially if it’s in the form of a sustainable Midi Dress! A benefit that nourishes both spiritually and physically!
Spiritually, you can channel the pink chakra that links you to the Divine force and an infinite source of healing energy via devotion, self-realization, wisdom, and enlightenment.
Here are some affirmations to activate your Crown/ Sahasrara Chakra:
- I honour my body as the temple that nourishes my soul.
- I can manifest my vision.
- I am enough as I am.
PURPLE: Represents motivation, wisdom, transformation, bravery and ambition.
Purple both stimulates and soothes our body, which puts us in a good mood for self-reflection. It stimulates our senses and encourages the stillness required to make intuitive, perceptive observations, which in turn develops creativity. Purple brings awareness and calmness into a beautiful balance.
You can allow your purple chakra to spirituality enhance your focus, consciousness and enlightenment. When this chakra is activated, you’ll feel calm and tranquil through stressful situations.
