Choose colors for coloring in consciously

Work with blue when you need calmness.

Coloring in books for adults are all the rage at the moment. Apart from unlocking creativity and helping us to open up our imagination, it releases stress and tension, helps us to stay focussed and keep us grounded.

Magically, it goes even deeper than that. Consciously choosing the colors that you use for coloring in can help you heal on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The Ancients knew this to be true (that colors can heal) when they built temples of color and light, and invited the sick, and the down and out to bask in its healing power.

Thanks to the Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle we know that the colors of the rainbow and the various shades and tints all have a different frequency. And as we as humans are basically an energy system, the vibration of various colors affects our body, heart, mind and soul.

So, when you expose yourself to specific colors – whether by eating, wearing or using it to color in - you can stimulate certain feelings, thoughts and beliefs or you can get rid of outdated (whether you are aware of them or not) habits or thought patterns.

Have you noticed how you much “lighter” you feel after a coloring in session?

So, if you know what your struggles are, choose the colors for coloring in consciously. Whether you have a hard time making a decision, finding the confidence to do that public speaking event, speaking up for what you believe in, or putting yourself out there in the dating game, color can help you get rid of that block.

Here is a guide of the colors that you can work with to assist you in cultivating your strengths or releasing the stuff that hold you back.
