As we joyfully entered the season of spring with Basant Panchami, it’s time that we bring in the much needed peace and prosperity to attract positive energies and harmonise our lives. And what better way than embracing the colour of spring — yellow into our homes. Besides the colour, embracing and celebrating fragrant flowers such as beli, chameli, jui and others that bloom everywhere with the onset of spring, is considered auspicious too.
According to the principles of Vastu Shastra, colours play a very important role to bring about a balance in our minds and bodies as well in stimulating energies. White colour is the combination of the seven primary colours/energies: VIBGYOR or violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Each colour is linked with a particular part of the human body and will affect you emotionally, physically and mentally. The colours around us affect our moods, health, happiness, etc. too. Since yellow is associated with brightness, optimism and joy you can deck up your drawing or living room in it.
Also, the colour has a warming effect that energises the nervous system and signifies illumination, light, intellect and higher mental activity, so it is advisable to paint the study room of a growing child with this colour. Yellow increases your consciousness and cuts down on depression, sadness or any kind of despondency.
