How do you feel when you see or wear yellow? Does it make you feel happy?
Think about what yellow means to you. Do you have yellow in your wardrobe or in your house? What yellow food do you include in your diet?
Is Yellow Your Color?
Color Psychology: If yellow is your favorite color, here are some traits that you may recognize:
- You are cheerful and fun to be with.
- You are methodical in your thinking and tend to analyze everything.
- You can be very critical of yourself as well as others – you are a perfectionist.
- You are often the one who comes up with new ideas who needs others to bring the ideas into reality.
- You tend to hide your emotions.
Positive (when your solar plexus is balance): Cheerful, optimism, enthusiasm, fun, good-humored, confident, original, academic and analytical/ logicical.
Negative (when your solar plexus is out of balance): Overly analytical, critical, impatient pessimistic, cowardly, deceitful.
Chakra Energy: Yellow is the color of the Solar Plexus chakra, associated to the element ‘fire’ and associated with our power center. “I do” is the vibration of this chakra. You can read a little more about chakras here and we dive more deeply into color and its association with our chakra system in my online class “Chakra Color Art Journal“
Color Therapy: Yellow resonates with the pancreas, liver and gallbladder as well as our nervous system and mental aspects. Our brain becomes more alert when we are exposed to yellow and reminds us of the sun and that it is daylight.
Wear Yellow: Wear it to encourage personal power, stability, confidence and happiness. Yellow can sometimes drain your energy levels, so avoid wearing when you are tired.
Decorate with Yellow: As yellow stimulates the brain, using pops of yellow in your study or work area will improve your concentration or when you need to expand ideas. Some yellows can feel a little sickly, so golden yellows, primrose and buttery creamy yellows. Decorating a whole space in yellow with yellow light can have a negative affect and is not recommended as it encourages irrational behavior and nervousness.
