The Power of Yellow- Color Therapy

Maybe you have noticed that certain colors seem to make you feel a certain way. Perhaps red has triggered energy or aggression in you. Maybe you have experienced feeling at peace after viewing the color green. This is not uncommon. Colors have the power to change, alter, or trigger feelings inside of us. The colors we wear may reflect our current emotional state or they may indicate a subconscious yearning for a shift in attitude. 

For those of you interested in Chakras, yellow relates to our Solar Plexus Chakra. This is located at the center of the abdomen, below the ribs. The organs in this Chakra are the liver, stomach, small intestine, and spleen.  The gland here is the pancreas.  The color yellow can help aid certain maladies associated with the organs that exist in the Solar Plexus Chakra. Some examples of these are digestion, IBS, colitis, anxiety, stress, low-self esteem, and depression.  This Chakra is also related to how we feel about ourselves and how we cope with how others perceive us. 

Yellow can alter our moods in positive ways. The color is associated with fun, humor, intellect, focus, logic, creativity, optimism, confidence, and personal power. It is illuminating and helps us to absorb knowledge. 

Some popular yellow crystals are citrine, yellow tourmaline, and yellow garnet.  Yellow flowers can be found a plenty. Some examples are sunflowers, yellow tulips, chrysanthemums, daffodils, yellow peonies, and black-eyed susans. 

Using colors for therapy doesn't have to be complicated. You can surround yourself by the color with the healing powers you desire. You can wear clothes or jewelry of that color. You can place a yellow stone in your pocket or even on your  Solar Plexus. Get creative with the power of color therapy. 

Wishing you a happy and healthful day!
