The Use of Violet in Colour Therapy
Violet is the cosmic ray with the highest vibration and enters through the crown chakra. It works on the master glands and etheric centre. This is the chakra that many people relate to feeling closer to God, which is why you will find many older ladies will dye their hair with a violet rinse. Violet purifies, controls growth and relieves pain, it can also be used for the treatment of shock or fear. Violet can exert strong psychic influences, however, and a person attracted to it has to guard against living in a fantasy world. Violet is the colour for the brain, especially the pineal gland which opens us up spiritually. Violet balances the body’s metabolism and helps maintain the potassium balance in the body. It suppresses hunger and has a cleansing and purifying effect. It balances the mind and helps deal with obsessions and fears. Violet has a transformative quality, helping us make changes in our life. It brings peace and helps us connect with our creativity and spiritual side so that we can change and grow. An attraction to Violet indicates a time to let go of the past and look forward to the future. Violet in interior design has to be used wisely, although it is a healing colour it can be detrimental to the health of anyone who suffers from mental problems as it affects the brain. Good rooms to use this colour are a treatment room, bedroom study, meditation room or sanctuary. Violet creates an air of luxury, royalty and mystery because it has always been associated with kings and spiritual places. It is best to use violet for inspiration in touches in soft furnishings either with harmonizing colours or to complement a yellow scheme. Shades of purple can be used in areas where dignity and contemplation are required. Wearing violet will promote sensitivity and a calmer more gentle nature. Avoid if you suffer from a lack of freedom or around people who are not sensitive to your feelings. Wearing purple will help you to get in touch with your creativity and intuition. Enjoy Violet but use it wisely and in moderation.
