Surprising Power of Colors - It's Not All in Your Head

Many studies have proven that colors have an effect on your mood. But you don't need a scientific study to tell you that. Simply walk into a predominately blue room and then walk into a red one. How did your mood change? Chances are, you felt happier and calmer in the blue room then you did in the red one. That's because red is a more energetic color than is blue. But you probably didn't consciously think about it. Instead, your mood simply responded to it. But you can consciously use color to affect your mood by meditating (visualizing) the appropriate color at various times throughout the day.

Meaning of Colors

Before starting your color meditation, you need to know what the meanings of some of the main colors are, and what they tend to do to your mood.


As noted above, red is an energetic color. It wakes you up, makes you alert, and may cause aggressiveness. It is the color of passion-sexual and otherwise. Meditate on red when you need extra energy, courage, or confidence to complete a particular task. Too much of a focus on pure red, however, can make you irritable or feverish. Therefore, you should not meditate more than a couple of minutes at a time on red.

A shade of red, pink is a gentler, warmer color than is its bolder counterpart. Pink is the soothing color of love and affairs of the heart. Meditate on pink when you want to open your heart to love, or when you want to expand the love that you already feel for someone or something.

Universally considered a tranquil color, blue is the one you should choose to soothe your frazzled nerves. There are, however, many different shades of blue that have differing effects on your mood. Royal blue is a more energetic shade of this color, with a meaning similar to red. Navy blue denotes seriousness. Baby blue or sky blue will calm you down.

The color green represents nature, renewal, and healing, just like grass and foliage. Meditate on green when your emotions need some renewal and you would like to start over.

Representing friendship, yellow is the color of happiness and optimism. Think of the warming rays of the sun on a lazy summer day. This is the way that meditating on yellow should affect your mood, making you happy, content.

Meditating on Colors

When you feel you need a boost for your mood, pick one of the colors associated with the desired mood. Several times during the day, close your eyes and visualize a ray of that color coming down from the ceiling, entering the top of your head, and coursing slowly throughout your body. Visualize the inside of your body becoming the color that you have chosen. If you have trouble imagining the color itself, think of a particular item of that color. For instance, for red, think of an apple. For green, think of the grass. For yellow, think of the sun. Soon, you will have no trouble at all vividly seeing these colors in your imagination.
I use these color meditations all the time, and they really work.

Intention is the Law of Attraction in Action

These days you can find material on the Law of Attraction everywhere. It is in bookstores, TV, DVDs and the Internet. But do you fully understand how it works? Do you ever wonder why some people can use it effortlessly to gain what they want all the time while others cannot get even a simple result from it. More importantly though do you understand why it only works sometimes for you or not all?

Because you can think and because you can feel and express emotion you are a creator already. Through your ability to think and feel you are using the Law of Attraction every second of everyday to attract to you the life you are currently living. By virtue of your dominant thoughts and feelings you are attracting everything that you have ever experienced and ever will experience into your life. You are a creator. However, chances are you are an unconscious creator. If you wish to become a conscious creator - a person who deliberately attracts and creates their life the way they want it to be - then you need to understand how to use the Law of Attraction.

It is not necessary to understand all the intricate inner workings of the great law but it is essential that you develop a deep understanding of how to use it properly. Many people do not understand how or why gravity is created but they still know not to step off a ledge that is 10 stories high!

The very first thing you need to do is create an intention. Having an intention is not only the first step in attracting whatever you want, it is also the most important and the most powerful. Without having a solid concrete intention you can expect to achieve little and you never live the life you deire to live. Your life will drift along on the oceans of change while you are carried this way and that depending on the desires and the intentions of those around you.

The Law of Attraction can be summed up simply in a short yet powerful sentence. If this sentence were totally understood the rest of this article would be unnecessary as would all the current and unwritten works that teach this law. The truth behind the Law of Attraction can be quantified in this short statement: You get more of what you focus on in life!

This means that whatever you give your attention to with thought and feeling you energize. As you focus your energy through your thoughts and feelings you are activating the Law of Attraction and setting it in motion. Through the Law of Attraction you then begin to attract into your life more of what you are concentrating on regardless of whether it is wanted or unwanted.

You are mostly using the Law of Attraction unconsciously. Sometimes you use this to your adavantage but most times you are activating this law to bring you things that you do not want. For example, as you focus on lack of money, bills and debts you will attract more things that require you to spend your money, more bills to pay and more debts to clear. If you focus on the problems or arguments in your relationship you will attract more reasons to argue and more problems to worry about.

Conversely, if you direct your focus to those things that are working well within your relationship you will attract more things that work well and create more harmony between you and your partner. If you focus on the positive aspects of your finances like having a roof over your head, a car, a job and money to pay the bills then you will attract more of these into your life. Basically, if you feel grateful for the things you have you will attract more of them but you will also attract more things to be grateful for!

In addition you can also create a focus for yourself. For instance if you desire a better job or higher income you can begin to imagine what that would look and feel like to have. As you focus on that mental image everyday you will begin to attract situations, circumstances and people that bring that vision closer to reality and ultimately into your life.

It is your ability to focus you attention on something that makes you a creator. By focusing your attention you activate the Law of Attraction. However, it is your Intention that unlocks the door to using the Law of Attraction to deliberately create a life that is pleasing to you.

Setting an intention is very powerful because it forces you to direct your focus on what you want and not on the lack of it. If your try to use the Law of Attraction to create more money in your life without setting a concrete intention then you will tend to focus on the "wanting" feeling which is in fact just focusing on the lack of money in your life. Most people fail to manifest anything consciously simply because they become frustrated and disheartened due to a misdirection of their focus - they are concentrating on wanting instead of what it would be like having!

List three things that would bring you joy if you had them in your life today. Under each of these desires write a few reasons why having it would bring you joy and make you happy. Once you have determined the reason state the emotion you are feeling that is assosiated with it. For example I intend to have $20,0000 in additional income because I could treat my wife to new clothes more often and a family holiday and this would make me feel like a better provider and give me a sense of pride, joy and accomplishment while making me feel safe and secure in my marriage and home.

Taking these simple steps means that when you think of your intention to attract or create an additional £20,000 in income you are focused on the goal itself and the feelings of having it rather than on the lack of it. The more intense your feelings of having it are the faster it will manifest. Now please note I am not saying that the more you want it the faster it will come! Wanting something can actually keep it away from you. Why? Because by wanting you are focusing on the lack! Focus your feelings on having it and you will attract it into your life with a speed that will surprise and perhaps even shock you. This is a knack but once you do it, it becomes easier the next time.

Every morning and every night read the list of intentions and the reasons for wanting them. Visualize what you will be doing when you have these things and most importantly of all FEEL how you will feel when you have them. When you generate the feelings associated with your desires you have already activated the Law of Attraction and the manifestation of your desires has already begun!
