Colour Healing For Your Home




Your surroundings greatly influence your energy and experiences. In a home environment the colours that you choose to decorate and accessorise with each have a unique vibrational energy that can influence your mood, enjoyment and emotions. Colour attracts and detracts positive and negative energy.

In the same way that colour is effectively used to transform the way you feel, when wearing particular items of clothing, it can also be used to heal your home.

How Does Colour Healing Work?

Have you ever walked into a room that is decorated in soft shades of pale blue and felt instantly calm and relaxed? That is because the vibrational energy of the colour blue is a calming influence on your energy.

Healing your home with colour is easy to do and produces quick and effective results. You do not have to completely redecorate to benefit from the positive colour vibes. If your budget is tight you can introduce specific colours in the form of flowers, candles and soft furnishings.

If you want to improve the energy in your home it is important to remember that splashing the walls with colour won’t make a difference if your home is untidy and disorganised. To really benefit from transformative colour healing you must also declutter your space.
