Metaphysical Properties: Colour

Bringing balance to our lives

colour attributes MaxineFaye

Using Colour, in any form, may benefit your physical, mental psychological or spiritual state.  Colour properties influence our choices every day – mostly without us even knowing – we even talk in colour  (“I’m feeling blue”, “He has a yellow streak”, and “She was green with envy”).

Find out more about your favourite (or least favourite) colour, the strengths, needs, affirmations, chakras and stones associated with it, by clicking on previous posts where I have touched on the “Headlines” of each colour’s properties.  I have looked at affirmations that may be suitable if you are having issues with an essence of each colour and ways we may address the lessons of each colour.

Over the next months I’ll look at other aspects of each colour properties and go into more depth of what each of these “Headline” subjects was about.  We will eventually look at the chakra each colour is associated with and touch on the Tarot Cards linked to the colour properties.

The following colour tiles will link to the posts as they are published, so bookmark this page for future reference.

There are no “Good” or “Bad” colours. They each contain both sides of the same coin.  As in Yin / Yang Philosophy, each colour exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites, for example female-male, dark-light and old-young.  In Red, the property that drives anger is the same property that can be channelled into extra energy and drive.  It is all in how the property is utilised.

Each colour sits on the colour wheel in a particular position and its opposite can be used as an “Antidote” for some of the issues.  Lets take Red again.  If you are feeling over-stimulated by its energy, then Green sitting opposite can be used to calm the situation.”

How does this work in real life?

Lets look at a situation where you are getting wound up and things are getting heated or aggressive.  Green represents space and is calming.  To use the “Antidote” you could take a break and connect with nature.  Hug a tree, sit on the grass and remember to breathe as the lungs and respiratory system also fall under Green.

If the situation is ongoing and difficult to bear.  Use one of the recommended stones/crystals for their protective or stimulative effects.

Some easy ways to use each colour properties are:-

Dress in it.  Underwear and socks are an easy way of using colours you wouldn’t usually wear.

Eat it.  Make a salad of your required coloured vegetables or fruits.

Drink it.  Put your water in a coloured bottle and let it sit in the light.  Put one of the suggested stones into a jug of water and let it sit.  Drink the water.  Ensure your stone is clean and doesn’t contain toxins.

Bathe in it.  Put flowers or crystals etc of your chosen colour into your bath.

Surround yourself with it.  Paint your room.  Add accessories.

Wear it.  Use jewellery to add the colours you require.  Double up on this by using Gemstone and Crystal jewellery to get the Metaphysical benefits of the colour and the properties of the stone.

Olive

The metaphysical properties of this colour

Olive colour properties

In this series of posts on the properties of colour I have included an overview of the metaphysical properties and information on some colours and the chakras that they relate to.  I have also included some lessons and affirmations.

Later, in a more in-depth series, I will build on the properties of these colours and how you can use them to your benefit.

Having studied the Aura Soma system of Colour Therapy to the Advanced Level I find the natural benefits of vibrations from colour intriguing and I’m always trying to find out more information on this subject.

Olive

This colour provides clarity to see your path, your individual direction and individual freedom. It gives a new direction to the heart. It allows learning to work with emotions (laugh at self – remove the ego), joy within the emotional body and is emotionally lubricating.

“Happy is the man who can laugh at himself for he will never be un-amused”.

Connecting the solar plexus and heart charkas. It bridges dualities.  Olive has a great tenacity and hope. It is optimistic, hopeful and practical with the promise of new beginnings.

Openness (coming out of camouflage), feminine leadership showing empathy and compassion, solidarity / equality and decision-making all fall under this colour.

Olive stimulates self knowledge, lets pain and feelings of betrayal out of the heart replacing them with tenderness and power. There is a return to the innocence of the heart.

The Lesson for Olive is

"Discontent and dissatisfaction".

Olive can be very slow moving (nearly stagnant), show inflexibility, have a fear of change and suffer separation anxiety.  It may be bitter, hold resentment or envy and fall into despair and hopelessness.

Camouflage is an attribute of Olive (doesn’t recognize self as an individual). There is a need for individual freedom. Olive can suffer from a fear of persecution (of expressing one’s own truth).

The need for Olive is

"For the heart's truth".

An affirmation suitable for this colour is

“It is safe to open my heart".

Of course, this won’t happen just by saying it once off. Each and every time you feel unworthy or stuck in the past, just focus on the affirmation of your choice.

Another suitable affirmation is “I am full of hope”

This colour connects with

Atlantis, China, Israel, Mediterranean, other planetary systems – Moldavia.

Chakra and physical areas associated with Olive are bridging the “Yellow” and “Green” areas, Thymus gland.

Physical areas that fall under Olive are the immune system and allergies.

Crystals / Gems

That may provide assistance with these issues

Crystals / gems (in their olive form) are Jade, some / or combinations of the “yellow” or “green” gems would be suitable here.

You may find that wearing or using these or other Olive items provide support when dealing with any of these Olive issues or wanting to tap into Olive’s potential.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Olive isn’t your favourite colour?  Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you are connected and have confidence – and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about olive or camouflage sheets (or just the pillowcase) or use olive oil to condition you hair or skin.

Drink an Spirulina smoothie, eat Olives.   All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect.
