Having a great style is only part of the package. Working with colour is essential to bring out the truly stylish person you are.
Colour can make you appear slimmer or larger, younger or older, audacious or timid, dull or exciting, wholesome or naughty. Knowing your correct colours can do a lot for you, for your skin, your hair, your eyes and your figure.
Shopping will become easier knowing which colours suit your skin tone. You will gain confidence from knowing the colours you wear compliment and flatter you. You will be on an exciting journey of a new career and life, creating a whole new you.
Wearing incorrect colours can make you look older, heavier, tired, gloomy, uninteresting and even ill. The wrong colours also often wear you, so that people see your clothes before they see you.
Colour also has a personality with the Chakras.
So, let's learn how wearing colour makes an impact with chakras.
Using Colour With Chakras
There are seven main chakras and seven primary chakra colours. Each of these colours has a meaning, and you can use the meanings to communicate with these colours. These chakras are like spirals of energy; each one relates to the other.
Colour can be used to balance and enhance our body's energy levels and also help stimulate our own body's healing process. If you are depleted of energy, colour assists to re-balance the chakras.
Learning about and wearing the Chakra's colours gives you confidence, knowing you communicate the message you want to project, plus it's a lot of fun.
