The use of colors to communicate how we feel

16 posts in this topic

When people are sad they are often said to be “blue”. Jealousy is implied if someone is described as being “green with envy”. Angry people “see red” while yellow is associated with happiness, and in contrast, black and shades of grey have negative connotations. Why are certain emotions associated with certain colours? And where did these associations come from?

The article is interesting but the point that stood out for me was that the 'language' of colours can be very personal. I think the authors will struggle to construct some sort of universal colour language that will be helpful to the majority.

I'm feeling a little mauve at the minute. I don't know whether that's a good thing or not... :unsure2:

Joking aside, I agree with ouija, colour is as subjective as other tastes... music, food, physical attraction, etc.

Im feeling beige at the moment. 

Something I dont like with colors is that most kidsclothes are either blue for boys and pink for girls or grey.
At least thats how it is here in Sweden
Its so boring and sexistic, me and my wife allways tries to find diffrent colors for our kids, but its not easy.

Color can be subjective based on culture.  I read somewhere that white is the color of mourning in China instead of black.

Colour is very important to people on the autism spectrum. I have two autistic cousins, and I myself am (minorly, but diagnosably) on the spectrum. Things that I like are shades of blues, greens, and greys in my mind, whereas things that I dislike are yellows and oranges. My two cousins have the same experiences, but with different colours as being good and bad. None of us can really articulate why a thing is a particular colour, but the colours are very important.

Atamarie Still Waters..xx

Your Name has A Calmness to it..Peace...

Humans are really HUE MAN..

Colours ,Frequency..

The Auric Energetic Field that Surrounds the Body..

Red is the Base Colour, this Rules the Sacral Area, the sexual Organs.. This colour is Power, and yes this is a lower dense frequency, the higher up the body, the Auric Energy, becomes more refined, or higher..

BLACK, is Earth, your connection to the Land..

BROWN, is also Earthly, this colour is by the Knees or Legs..

RED, the base of Spine..Power..

ORANGE, just below naval, this is Instinct..

YELLOW, above the Naval, this is Intuition..

GREEN, this is the Heart Colour. Hence, "green with Envy" emotions..

BLUE, the throat, This is Communication, Expression..

PURPLE, this is Mind Power, or some say The Third Eye Power..

BURGUNDY, The Crown, this is the Thread, holding your Etheric Body Within and Without the Physical..

After these Colours, In the Energetic field ,above the Crown, is

PINK, SILVER, GOLD AND WHITE..

WHITE, is the Highest, it is all the Colours..

In the Physical, GREEN is Queen.. The Ruler of the Emotions..

So, something new to Ponder..!!

Thankyou for Opening this thread..

Peace to you and yours..xx

Mo..xx

Hi Again Sir..xx

I just had a thought..

I Know Red, is the Colour of Power.. It rules the Sacral Area, of the Sexual Organs..

This is Where, New Life Comes From...

So Maybe it Means, The Power Of Life..... Regeneration, In the Gift of Children.. Who live on After Us..

Blood is Very Powerful.. This is Our Life Essence in the Physical Body...

My thoughts..lol..

Peace Again. To you Mr Argon..

Mo..xx

Yes.. what is also interesting is that plant leafs, stems, and grass  are green.. when you look at the nature its vegetation is green. I would call green the color of life. So why is animal and human blood red? Red is complementary to green - the opposite color, and red blood is life essence.

I think it is because the opposites are connected, poles of the same circle - mirrors. Green is inverted Red ad vice versa..
