Seeing a Rainbow is a rare and special thing but did you know that the colours of the rainbow are the same as the colours of our energy centres or ‘Chakras’ and that our choice of colour can affect not only our mood but also our health? Each Chakra relates to a particular colour frequency and a body in good health needs a balance of all the rainbow colours.
The colours of the rainbow and our Chakras each have their own meaning and we all have an identity colour. Do you recognise yourself in any of these?
RED – BASE
Full of energy, vitality and with a love of life, Reds may also be headstrong, impatient and have a bad temper. They need to keep their blood pressure in check and also watch out for skin problems.
Lovers of red should opt for LIVVY in RED/CRIMSON
“I am confident, lively, sensual and abound with energy.”
ORANGE – SACRAL
The colour Orange represents a lively and outgoing personality and a practical attitude. They need to watch their energy levels and may suffer from stress and a depleted immune system.
Orange shades come in the form of SPICE this season try BLISS.
“I am full of vitality, highly creative and comfortable with my body.”
YELLOW – SOLAR PLEXUS
Lively and interested in everything, Yellows are good communicators and clear thinkers. They could suffer from lack of exercise and a poor diet could cause digestive problems.
TOURIST in MANGO is a hit for Summer.
“I am a lively, interesting person, able to communicate my great ideas well.”
GREEN – HEART
Known for being lovers of the great outdoors, Greens are very observant, considered and strive to find balance and harmony. They can be overcautious.
Make your friends green with envy with HANNAH in AQUAMARINE.
“I am in harmony with myself and others and have fresh new ideas.”
BLUE – THROAT
Gentle and peaceful, Blues are known for being wise and caring. They look for harmony in all situations and are at risk of becoming withdrawn and isolated, often suffering from throat-related problems.
Our favourite colour of the season, BLUE RIVER, looks irresistible on Hotter Original JEWEL.
“I am a creative and sensitive soul with strong principles and work to help others.”
Intellectual and in touch with their own intuition and higher self, Indigos are idealistic, loyal and truthful. They need to work for the good of others.
Add a pop of colour to your Summer wardrobe with TONE in COBALT.
“I am relaxed and at peace with myself. I am loyal and trustworthy and in touch with my intuition.”
VIOLET – CROWN
Extremely sensitive, Violets are very often talented musicians, artists or writers. Very intuitive and commonly called to serve others, they can suffer from nervous disorders.
Express yourself in style this Summer with DONNA in LAVENDER.
“I have high ideals. Am very loyal and am seeking spiritual fulfilment.”
When we look in our wardrobe and can’t find anything to wear it may be that we just can’t find the colour our body needs at that time. We also associate aromas with visual colours, for example aromas we like such as rose, lilac, violet, lemon all have beautiful vibrant colours and smells we dislike tend to have muddy colours such as rubber, oil, fish and vinegar. The scent from essential oils can also stimulate the brain to link with a colour memory.
Our health and wellbeing is affected by our choice of colour in the food we eat. Red, orange and yellow foods are acidic in quality so have a stimulating effect. Green and blue foods are alkaline so gentler on the system. This is why we are often advised to reduce our intake of red meat and eat more green vegetables, blueberries etc.
