The Power of Autumn Colours
A look at the power of Autumn colours on the world and our lives.
As winter draws near, the warm colours of autumn are dotted through every field and forest. Bright yellow leaves scattered across your lawn or in your local park; rich red tones on trees and deep green hues of evergreen bushes. These autumnal colours possess a spiritual energy of their own. Here we learn how to work with the energy of this season to tap into the power of autumn to enhance your life.
The harvest is over and the earth falls quieter but the landscape is alive with colour. The energy of autumn is calming and balancing. Its hues gently invigorate and stimulate the mind, while soothing the soul. Autumn is the time to think about whether each part of your life is in balance: are you devoting too much time to work and forgetting the importance of home life? Or perhaps you are so busy looking after other people that you neglect to look after your own needs?
Autumn is the time to count your blessings: think about all the good things you have in your life and give thanks for them. Let your loved ones know that you appreciate them.
Autumn colours can offer you:
*A balancing of emotions
*A sense of calmness
*Gentle invigoration of the senses
*Stimulation of your mind
The idea behind using colours to positively influence your life is that each colour vibrates at a different level. This means different shades emit their own energy. This colour energy can influence your mood and feelings.
*Find a bright yellow leaf or fabric or other material.
*Find a dark green leaf or other material.
*Hold the yellow leaf in the palms of your hand and focus on the colour.
*As in meditation, let you mind fully focus on the yellow shade, dropping all other thoughts from your mind.
*How does this colour make you feel? Write down the first three words that pop into your head.
*Repeat the colour meditation with the dark green leaf.
*Look at the differences between how you felt while meditating on the yellow leaf as oppose to the feelings you had while meditating on the green leaf.
*This (hopefully) demonstrates the differences in feelings or mood that colours can cause you to experience.
How to use autumn colour
The rich, earthy tones of autumn can be incorporated into your everyday life. Add a splash of autumn colour to your outfit. By incorporating something as simple as a deep red scarf or gloves to your outfit you can begin to feel the benefits of autumn colour.
Or, pick your autumn hue, then introduce it to your home by choosing some cushion covers or a throw for the sofa in your selected shade. Bed linen, a table cloth or a fresh coat of paint on one wall in your home can introduce autumn colour energy into your life.
