‘May you have a colourful Holi.’ We hear that all the time but what does it really mean? The answer varies from person to person.

For some it means victory of good over evil and arrival of spring, for others it’s a reunion with their loved ones. But how many of us are truly living the spirit of Holi?

If black and white were the only colours in the world, what would life seem like? I’m sure the answer is — dull, boring, monotonous, depressing, lifeless and so on. But sadly, most of us are living a colourless life today. Life seems stressful as we are always complaining and competing, with barely any time left for our loved ones. We are for sure not setting a good example for our children. It’s a neverending rat race where we are completely disconnected from our true self and our life purpose. Our true life purpose is to celebrate every moment and facet of life to the fullest.

LIVING WITH COLOURS

Most people have no clue how colours can affect our mood and even help us in succeeding in different situations. Colours can heal and even help us become our greatest version.

Red: It is associated with power, energy, strength, passion and desires. It is very helpful for people who are shy, with low energy levels and lack confidence. It demands attention as it stands out and is the most eye-catching amongst all colours. It enhances metabolism and increases blood pressure and can even stimulate intimate passion.

Too much of red, however, can make one irritable and angry.

Orange: It’s the colour of the sun. It represents warmth, vitality, fun and positivity. It helps those in depression as it motivates  one to look at life in a positive way. It offers new ideas and gives us freedom to be ourselves. It helps people to move on, especially those who are going through separation.

Yellow: It is the colour of sunrays. It relates to knowledge, happiness, enthusiasm and optimism. It helps in decision-making as it provides clarity of thought and helps us focus. People with self-doubt and low self-esteem must add yellow to their outfits as it enhances self-confidence.

However, too much of yellow has a tendency to make you self-critical and critical of others.

Green: It’s the colour of nature, growth, vitality, fertility, money and harmony. It renews and restores depleted energy. Green is the colour of the heart chakra and gives us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others, unconditionally. It is the colour of prosperity and abundance of finance and wealth.

However, too much of green can make one judgmental and overly cautious.

Blue: It is associated with the sky. It reduces stress and has a cooling and calming effect. It is the colour of the thought chakra and is great for one way communication (teacher, public speaker). It is great for businessmen and for people seeking jobs as it is the colour of trust, loyalty and honesty.

However, if overused it can make you depressed. It can also make you rigid and do things your own way even if there is a better way available.

Purple: It is the colour of intuition, imagination, knowledge, wisdom and spirituality. It allows us to get in touch with our deepest thoughts. It benefits those who are willing to change their bad habits as it is the colour of the crown chakra. It inspires unconditional and selfless love. It is the colour of royalty, extravagance and demands respect. People who are unwell should paint their room purple as it’s great for healing and wellness.

Too much of the colour can promote and aggravate depression. It should be used in small amounts by those vulnerable to depression.

White: It is a symbol of purity, innocence, perfection and new beginnings. It helps in reviving emotional disturbances. It’s great for inner cleansing and purification of thoughts and emotions. It helps in decluttering and  moving in a new direction.

Too much white can cause feelings of isolation and emptiness.

So are you ready to live a truly colourful life? Wishing you a truly funfilled and colorful Holi.
