Colour effects On Us

Written by Mathew Naismith

A bloke of the name of Sayan Hernandez asked me some very perceptive questions in regard to my last post titled, The effects of Colour on Us, that just might clear up a few things for a number of people in relation to how colour has an effect on us.

To Mathew: I like dark green but I guess that's bad

To Sayan Hernandez: Not at all +Sayan Hernandez, the effects of dark green is probably needed by you for some reason. All our perceptions are different and each of these perceptions needs a different colour to balance them out. 

To Mathew: Not sure I understand but from what I read in the spiritual significance of the colour, it said dark green was medium harmful, has negative energy.

To Sayan Hernandez: It can hinder our spiritual projections/awareness by blocking our perceptions but other factors need to be taken into consideration as well like how bright our perception is in the first place, this may have to be balanced out by dark green in your case. The colour of your car, the place where you live, and the people you live with and so forth, all have a bearing.

If I had a real colourful bright perception, wearing black to me wouldn’t be a negative thing as it would be giving my perception more balance.  Wearing black can be harmful if I had a dark or black and white perception to start with.

How do you tell if you have a dark or black and white perception?  Do you see a yes and no, wrong and right, black and white to everything? If yes, this represents a black and white perception, a logical mind which is unable to perceive past a black and white perception.

However on the other hand if you don’t just see everything as black and white, you most probably have a bright perception which is able to perceive beyond a black and white perception.

I will give you an example of black and white perception; atheists believe there is no way a God can ever exist and on the other hand you have people who say there’s  no way a God couldn’t not exist.  Our perceptions are governed by our black and white perceptions which aren’t necessarily a bad thing it just means we are unable to perceive outside of our own black and white perceptions.  Would a believer in God or an atheist want to look outside of their own perceptions?  The answer is no but I believe a person who has a bright or technicolour perception can. Agnostics are a good example of a brighter perception which enables them to perceive past black and white perceptions.

I believe in an intelligent creative consciousness that we call God, this to me says I have a black and white perception however if it was proven that I wasn’t correct within my perception, that wouldn’t worry me. In this case it would mean I have a brighter perception than just black and white.  Black and white perceptions have their place as do brighter perceptions however I think it’s the black and white perceptions that give us grief. This is due to black and white perceptions being opposing like with religion and atheism for example, technicolour perceptions don’t have opposing opposites therefore are more at peace.  In other words, all the colours are mixed up as one not separate and opposing each other. This also means all perceptions are mixed up and not opposing each other!!

When I say bring on the technicolour dreamtime I mean give us peace by not seeing each other’s perceptions as opposing opposite perceptions but perceptions that are all mixed up together as one, to me this would be utterly blissful and peaceful…….Is this a dream? I don’t think so.

The effects of Colour on Us

Written by Mathew Naismith

Supplement: There's been a few people queering me about the colour of their own clothes they wear and what they would mean. If you click on the links supplied you will get a better idea of this than what I can give you. Also wearing darker cloths doesn't necessarily mean something bad, especially if our perception is colourful and not just black and white. I believe a black and white perception isn't bad it's just not open to other perceptions where's a technicolour perception is open to these perceptions. Colour in our lives helps us to open up to other perceptions, it gives us acceptance of things beyond our present conscious understanding.   

This post is going on from my last post titled Technicolour Dreamtime, A Reality. In this post I will psychologically illustrate the importance of colour schemes in our lives and what they tell us about ourselves and each other’s, I will use different links to help me do this.  I will also show that colour therapy has been around since ancient times and how wearing some colours can protect us from discord.

First of all I would like to go into why technicolouring works at making us feel good as it’s usually a flurry of different colours mixed together randomly.  It’s not the flurry of different colours randomly mixed together that make us feel good but usually a balanced of these colours mixed together, balance is the key here as of anything in our lives. If on the other hand a technicholour image isn't balanced we will get a different reaction to the said image however this can also be balanced out by various symbols used within these images.

Take a pink heart enveloped by a white shade, the white exuberates the love of the pink heart. What if we used a darker shade instead of a white shade enveloping the pink heart? We of course get quite the opposite effect.  You might ask what the point of knowing all this is!! By taking notice of what you are attracted to define where you are at mentally as our mentality defines what awareness around us we are going to take in or not.  If we are attracted to dark images, we are not going to be as open to other perceptions outside of our own perception than if we were attracted to light images.

The following link goes into the effects of colours and shades have on us.

The following link goes into the science of the effects of colours have on us since ancient times.

Extract: Color Psychology as Therapy

Several ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practiced chromotherapy, or the use of colors to heal. Chromotherapy is sometimes referred to as light therapy or colourology and is still used today as a holistic or alternative treatment.

In this treatment:
Red was used to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation.
Yellow was thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body.
Orange was used to heal the lungs and to increase energy levels.
Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain.
Indigo shades were thought to alleviate skin problems.

We use a lot of colour these days but our perceptions are in black and white due to human conditioning. I think a black and white world, especially perceptively, isn’t obviously going to build upon a very harmonious existence but a world built upon colourful perception would, I presume, have quite the opposite effect. Most people who have built this black and white world wear black and white cloths especially to important functions; this does have an effect and an effect on all of us.

The following link looks at colour in a more spiritual sense, how what we wear determines our own moods, vulnerabilities and resistances to outside influences.

Extract: At many formal functions we see people wearing a black and white combination such as a tuxedo. The world sees this type of formal wear as the epitome of elegance and social grace. However at a spiritual level the story is very different. The subtle-vibrations from a very sattvik colour such as white and a very tamasik colour such as black actually fight each other. This fight leads to the creation of distressing vibrations which only increases the possibility of being affected by negative energies. From a spiritual perspective it is therefore not recommended to wear clothes, such as a tuxedo, with a black and white combination.

Colour schemes determine the way we are going to perceive which determines in how we react within ourselves and to the rest of the world.  If we surround ourselves, wear or are attracted to darker shades we will most likely be less harmonious within our perceptions but if we surround ourselves, wear or are attracted to the lighter shades we will most likely be more harmonious.  Lighter shades don’t necessarily mean we will be harmonious but there is a better chance of it. Being attracted to balanced technicolour scheme certainly can help one be more constructively perceptive within our ways.  Bring on the technicolour dreaming…..
