How Colors Influence Our Life
The World Around Us is Decorated with many Beautiful Colors. But the Intention was Not to Create ‘Just a Beautiful Painting’ … these Colors were Created in this World for a Very Specific Purpose.
In the past, the researchers thought it was an aesthetically pleasing system, which at times has a benefit in the natural world, but no more than that. However, many studies conducted in various parts of the world in recent years have revealed that colors have a mechanism that can be of great benefit to the health of one’s soul and mood, to help him solve distress, deprivation and mental blockages, and even to heal his body.
Try this: Open a window and look at the world, how many colors do you see? Not only those manufactured by man … but also everything that was created around you.
Now choose one thing; no matter what; for example, the Sky, or the Sea.
How do they make you feel? Relaxed? Peaceful? What do the sky and the sea have that makes us feel this way?
They have relaxing movement by the waves or the clouds; They have calm music of water or wind; And they have past and present and eternal horizon of the future – All of which makes you fill so calm and relaxed just by looking…;
But there is another un-expendable thing that helps these creations make you feel this way: it’s Their Colors. The sky and the sea (for example), were Painted Especially for Us in Thousands Shades of BLUE.
A study of human psychophysiology conducted by Dr. Robert Gerard of the University of California, examined whether colors stimulate feelings and emotions in humans, and whether response patterns correspond to the relative energy of the color stimulus. The researcher measured the blood pressure, sugar level, breathing rate, blink frequency, heart rate, muscle activation, and brain waves.
The results clearly showed that colors cause autonomic nervous system changes in brain activity and emotions.
When did you last wear something RED? Didn’t it made you feel a bit more sensual?Why is it happening? – It’s not just because fashion and history have rooted it in our minds, but the RED color itself has its own natural abilities.
Studies have actually shown that when you see the RED color it causes your heart rate and breathing to speed up…
The same applies to all other colors; Such as the clean WHITE, which reflects purity and health; Or the powerful BLACK that transmits strength; Or the sweet PINK that reflects innocence; Or the prosperous GREEN that reflects growth and makes you feel like the future is safe and you have nothing to worry about; Or the YELLOW that just makes you happy, and has been scientifically proven to increase the viewer’s optimism; Or the PURPLE, calm and powerful and mysterious; Or the ORAMGE, full of energy and radiant positivity; And also the BROWN, steady and reliable and embracing you with love just like Mother Earth.
All that has been said so far is based on scientific research conducted in recent years.
But almost the same things were written hundreds of years ago, in the Jewish Mysticism (Kabbalah) books.
These ancient books, describes the 10 “Sefirot”, spiritual layers through which the Infinite divine reveals Itself and continuously creates both the physical existence and
the chain of higher metaphysical realism.
Each of these Sefirot has the ability to affect us (and the world) in a way, and each of these Sefirot has been linked to certain colors. As a result, these colors received the properties and effects of each Sefira, and in practice these colors help transmitte these Emotional and Spiritual effects to each of us and to the world and nature.
So – Now that you know these facts, can you really afford not to use all the beautiful colors created for us?
They can encourage you, strengthen you, help you define yourself, release you and your less extroverted characteristics and emotions, and convey the same sensation to your surroundings!
