Create Happiness, Hope and Harmony with Color
Happiness, hope and harmony can be created in your life by adding color. Some days are filled with positive events that are full of vibrant colors and other days are filled with challenges that can be dark and gloomy. As I open my eyes each morning and wrestle with my thoughts about the upcoming day, I try to see a rainbow of positive color to get me started off on the right foot. One way to create happiness, hope and harmony is to notice the colors around you.
Happiness, Hope and Harmony in Your Life
Happiness, hope and harmony are all positive emotions that are core to opening our hearts and our minds and can make us more receptive and creative. There are certain colors that help elicit these positive emotions. Take a moment to look at your surroundings right now. What colors do you see? Do you see bright and energetic colors like yellow, blue and green or do you see black, gray and brown which are often associated with secrets, uncertainty and seriousness.
The Colors of Happiness, Hope and Harmony
Happiness comes from enjoying something of pure pleasure and satisfaction. Hope is simply a wish for something you consider to be possible. And harmony comes from many pleasing elements that all come together. There are many colors that might bring these three blissful emotions floating into your life but the colors that I find to simply bring the greatest amount of happiness, hope and harmony into my life are three of the most simple and abundant sources of color.
- Yellow -- Adding the primary color of yellow is known to produce a warming effect and arouse happiness. Simply set your alarm for one hour earlier than normal and rise with the sun. To get the full effect, go for an early morning walk or sit next to an eastern facing window and let the day unfold with you. The warmth from the sun's rays and the brilliant color of yellow in your view is certain to bring you more joy.
- Blue -- Adding the primary color of blue, the most calming color, is most likely to give you peace, stability and guidance to hope. The color of blue is simply added by looking upward as you leave your home and allowing the abundance of the natural sky to rest with you before you venture out for your day. Humanity's most popular color is blue, making it the easiest color to add to your daily living.
- Green -- Adding this secondary color, which comes from yellow and blue combined, is essential to adding harmony to your life. Green is the primary color of nature and symbolizes growth, fertility and balance. The first line of disease is a break with nature. Staying with nature by relaxing in a park or your backyard's abundance of green can increase your sense of harmony.
When I intentionally stop and acknowledge my surroundings throughout my day, I am able to easily bring in these three vibrant colors into my life. Inviting yellow, blue and green into my focus enhances my happiness, hope and harmony and ultimately leads to more blissful living.
