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.

More metaphysical properties of this colour

More orange colour properties


This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

How can we benefit from this colour?

To me, the flame of a campfire is symbolic of the colour orange. The enthusiasm and vitality of the flame dancing on the wood sparks gregarious and creative connections in the group. Think of all the fun times had around a communal fire and as the flame settles is seems hypnotic and provides a focal point. Staring at the flame appears relaxing and meditational and allows you to connect to your being. It enables you to settle into yourself and gain deep insight into your aspirations or life purpose.

The duality of orange can also be represented by a flame, but this time of a raging bushfire. The indecision of what to do when warned, then the hysteria and fear during the approach followed by the aftermath of melancholy and disappointment at what was lost and this trauma can stay and cause one to be stuck in the past and lead to a lack of confidence and not knowing how to move forward. This lack of self-worth can attribute to co-dependency issues or addictions.

After a bushfire though, especially in Australia, the bush rejuvenates. This natural occurrence is full of promise and brings forth optimism for the future.

Orange is associated with the lower abdomen or Sacral Chakra. This is from where we get our gut feelings or inner wisdom. It is also the site of our deepest feelings of bliss or rapture.

How can these lessons be addressed?

People under the Orange energy may suffer from a lack of trust (in others and themselves). They may be indecisive and lack confidence. A lesson from Orange is to connect. To connect in a positive manner, not as a co-dependant.

Connecting or re-connecting to a group, community or cause enables them to move on from the past and regain their confidence. This, in turn, can reignite their enthusiasm and optimism.

An affirmation to say each day is

“I am breaking through my barriers"

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.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Orange

The physical areas associated with Orange are the lower abdomen, kidneys, bladder, colon, spleen, abdomen, lower back, reproductive systems and sexuality. Puberty is also associated with Orange.

Menopause and hormonal changes may be assisted with Orange as can the absorption or digestion of food, balancing the acidity of the body and assisting with food cravings – to be disciplined not denied.

Orange sits in the Sacral Chakra (slightly above the genital area.

If any of the areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas of the original post are causing concern, you can look at using the suggested crystals in their Orange form. Small pieces can be carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Orange 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 orange sheets (or just the pillowcase) or bathe in bath-salts in this vibrant colour or drink an Orange juice, eat a Mandarin.   All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect.
