We are all psychic but to varying degrees. Even psychic skills face logical limitations; some people are just more sensitive, sensitive in different ways, and more talented than others. Everyone can run, but some people run faster, longer, and with more grace than others. With training, you can improve and maximize the psychic skills you have, just like improving your speed, endurance, and grace as a runner.
Sometimes psychic gifts remain dormant until a specific trigger moment, like a near-death experience, or they are found through concentrated efforts at meditation and mindfulness work. There is also a wide range of talents, from simple intuition to channeling other entities to animal communication and on and on.
This article will talk about how different colors affect psychic and spiritual energy.
Psychic Color Connections
The most common connection between color and psychic or spiritual energy is tied to the chakra system. There are seven chakras, or energy centers, in the human body design, and each one is assigned a color:
- Root Chakra (Red Color)
- Sacral Chakra (Orange Color)
- Solar Plexus Chakra (Yellow Color)
- Heart Chakra (Green Color)
- Throat Chakra (Blue Color)
- Third Eye Chakra (Indigo Color)
- The Crown Chakra (Violet Color)
Each chakra rules an aspect of human energy:
- Root Chakra (Safety/Security/Finances)
- Sacral Chakra (Sexuality/Pleasure)
- Solar Plexus Chakra (Personal Power/Energy Engine)
- Heart Chakra (Health/Love/Relationship)
- Throat Chakra (Self-Expression)
- Third Eye Chakra (Intuition/Personal Wisdom)
- The Crown Chakra (Connection to the Divine)
Black and White
Black is the absence of color, which rules mystery, negativity, and intensity. White is all colors combined, and the color of perfection, purity, innocence, and wholeness.
Using Color to Enhance Psychic and Spiritual Energy
Choosing to wear certain colors or paint your rooms certain colors or drive a vehicle of a certain color will help direct your psychic and spiritual energy in specific ways. The different hues of all colors modulate the essential energy, so when reading about the core meanings below realize that dark shades intensify while pastel versions make the energy more subtle and gentle.
Red (the Root Chakra: Safety)
We often think of red as a color of action, but in our society, the most common observation of red is stop signs and stoplights. Red represents the fundamental energy we need for survival. Wearing red, having a red room, or driving a red car represents fundamental survival psychic energy you want to be enhanced by having that color frequency on or around you.
Orange (the Sacral Chakra: Sexuality)
We tend to think of red when we think of passion, but orange is really the color of sexuality and pleasure. It is, after all, the color between red and yellow. The next time you go out for a date or decide to romance you partner, try wearing some orange on your person. Color frequencies, like sound frequencies, emit energy that you can tap into but also attracts those around you. Consider some orange tones in your bedsheets or somewhere in your bedroom.
Yellow (the Solar Plexus Chakra: Life Energy)
Consider that we have a yellow sun; and in American comic book mythology, the most powerful superhero in the DC Comics universe is Superman, who derives his power from our yellow sun. Yellow color, worn or present around us, energizes our psychic field and can be used to enhance our energy when we need more of it, either in a strong burst or over a sustained period of time.
Green (Heart Chakra: Love)
While green is commonly associated with the earth and can be a color that applies to stability, it is an energy color for health and well-being. Our health and well-being are most often strongest when we have loving relationships in our life. Green can be a great color to wear when out with friends, entertaining guests, or spending time with family. Choosing green jewelry or clothing, paint for walls or the color of your car suggests a need for and desire to share healthy psychic energy.
Blue (Throat Chakra: Self-Expression)
Blue has a tremendous range when considered for our emotions, which often power our self-expression. Wearing a blue item or clothing allows you to tap into psychic energy that will support your voice and authenticity. If you need to have a difficult or honest or difficult and honest conversation, wearing some blue will help. If you need to do a presentation or speak up about something, blue is the color you want resonating on your body.
Indigo (Third-Eye Chakra: Intuition)
Indigo is the color for connecting with your inner wisdom, while violet is the color for connecting with divine, outer wisdom. Put indigo on your person or in a space when you want to work on meditation to achieve insight. This color is often best utilized in private as a frequency for turning inward instead of as a color to wear out in public. If you wear it publicly, hidden under outerwear or worn inconspicuously is probably ideal.
Violet (Crown Chakra: Connection to the Divine)
Violet is often associated with the color of royalty, which indicated people who were closer to the divine than the rest of the population. Royalty aside, the color violet is a powerful color, blending red and blue (the Root and Throat Chakras) and reminding us of our role as spiritual beings having an incarnated experience. Wear and be around violet when you want the wisdom of spirit to enhance your psychic skills.
While villains wear the black hat, the absence of color is necessary to appreciate the energy of the colors. Color energy is not complete without honoring its absence and the necessity of that absence from time-to-time. It is about endings; and we wear the color when our psychic energy is reeling from an emotional blow (like the death of a loved one) or we need to absorb the color energy of others so their negativity does not touch us.
Lastly, white is the combination of all colors. Wearing this color represents a desire to tap into the psychic energy needed to cleanse our energy field and heal any psychic damage or rifts that can harm us or others. It is very common, in psychic healing work, to imagine white light entering your crown chakra and moving through all the other chakras to cleanse and reset your energy field.
Putting Colors Together
Very rarely do we wear only one color, and most of the time we do not wear color consciously, “I put on what was clean today”. This article has been written to suggest you should think more consciously about color, especially if you may be doing something important or new. Choosing colors selectively to present yourself to another, a group, or just do your own work, can be yet another way to enhance and get the most out of your psychic energy.
