Do The Color Of Your Crystals Hold Additional Properties, Influences and Meanings? You Bet They Do!

Updated: Dec 9, 2019

Color Therapy isn't just a passing fad. Through my studies and training in psychology, I learned that different colors create different emotions, feelings, memory triggers and they have different psychological affects on us, based on our own perceptions.

Colors resonate various vibrations and influence our perception, particularly how we feel. Every color emits a vibration, healing energy and most align with our own energy vibrations throughout our bodies (chakras, meridians, aura, etc.)

Think for a moment, how would you feel if you entered a room that had 4 blood red walls? In psychology some shades of red are referred to as "fire" colors, as it represents the color of anger, aggression and violence. Red is a color associated with passion, intensity, drama and power.

Now think about a softer color... maybe pink. The color pink is associated with love, healing, peace, optimism and our feminine side. It is a tender, vulnerable color. If you were to enter a room with four walls all colored pink, you would have a completely different emotional response than the response you had entering the room all colored in blood red. The color pink would soothe your nervous system, bring peace to mind and would cause you to have more loving and optimistic feelings.

So just as with psychology of color therapy, the color of your crystals also have properties, meanings and exude different emotions in all of us.
