I received an interesting comment from my post Hospitality Hues; What Color Will Help Us Heal. I’m going to share his comment with you then explain how you can find these healing hues. Come join me.
Here is the comment Alex posted:
“You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually something which I believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I am having a look ahead to your next post, I’ll try to get the hold of it!”

“Alex, for me, yes this topic is very easy and luckily, comes naturally to me. How? Why? Several reasons.I’ve been working with color for over 30 years. I’ve experienced the EMOTIONAL reactions that people have towards some colors.
For example, “Oh I LOVE that color!!! It reminds me of XYZ.” Or, “I do NOT want that color in my house! It looks like baby poop and I’ve been there done that” and I quote that last line by the way.
Secondly, I have extensive training in the Chakra system. Chakra are the energy centers in our body and when they are out of balance, our body already will let us know in the form of pain either emotionally, mentally or physically. Both these scenarios can be addressed with color … and that is what I do here.
I hope this answers some of your questions Alex.”
So you see, without realizing it, we rely on color just about every minute of the day. From the food choices we make to the clothes we wear it’s all about color.
You wouldn’t wear a puke green shirt would you? No, the name alone sounds gross and the color matches it description.
You wouldn’t eat food that had a moldy, green-brown color would you? No!
We rely on our eyes, heart and mind to help us choose the colors that we need in our life. For some, these lines are blurred and that’s where I come in to help.
