The pace of the modern world is accelerated, dynamic, and exciting as were always in the search of new and better things, experiences, and/or devices. So theres no wonder we tend to forget that the small things also impact our lives and wellbeing.
Lets take colors as an example. Most of us live surrounded by a sea of color amalgamations disguised as banners, signs, clothes, buildings, and more. Then we go inside and the assault of colors continues as interior design (whether its in a commercial establishment, an office, or our home).
According to color psychology
, the colors we see every day have an impact on our mood, feelings, and in the end, shape our behavior. Of course, this is something that people who work in marketing know very well, but they also know that the color that defines you also matters.
Our favorite colors give us and the ones around a little bit of insight into the unique composition of our soul. Plus, if you surround yourself with your favorite color(s) its easier to stay authentic to yourself. And one of the best ways to use color to your advantage is through jewelry - the stones we like and choose to display are part of our personality.
So if youre looking to understand your soul and want to learn how to express yourself, colors are a great medium for this. Heres how:
#1: Green for Your Spiritual Journey
Ever since old times, green has been associated with freshness and rebirth. Green symbolizes the life force that drives us all, but its also a calming color associated with safety, innocence, and knowledge.
Thats why the emerald stone - a gem that features gorgeous green nuances - is considered a symbol of truth and love. Back in ancient Greece and Rome, the emerald was the gemstone of Venus - the goddess of love and hope.
Also, the Incas and Egyptians held emeralds in high regard as they associated them with eternal life and wisdom.
Nowadays, a pretty ring with an emerald gemstone
speaks of a kind and free spirit with a deep inclination towards knowledge.
#2: Blue for Abundance and Strength
Nowadays, blue is often associated with a calm demeanor and a powerful character. And the sapphire, one of the bluest stones out there, is just like that - strong (second only to diamonds), collected, and inspiring.
The deep blue of the sapphire is often associated with royalty and sophistication. Its also thought to ward off negative energies and attract abundance in the life of the person wearing it.
Lastly, blue is the color that inspires meditation and self-awareness, which is why it fits people who want to explore the depths of their own souls.
#3: Yellow for Making a Mark on the World
The color of the sun and summer, yellow, is truly powerful and inspiring to people who want to leave their mark on the world.
Open-minded and strong-willed, people whose favorite color is yellow (Van Gogh
was one of them) are positive, cheerful, and adventurous.
However, they also have a dark side and can just as well become the outlaw in someone elses story.
When it comes to jewelry, there are many yellow gemstones on the market, but the one that fits this color best is amber (which technically is not a stone).
Amber has deep yellow hues that resemble honey and provides the wearer with a sunny glow.
The best thing about having so many colors to choose from is that there will always be a way for us to express ourselves. As we learn and grow, our preferences change as well so its only natural to come and love a new color.
