“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type… I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!” ~John Mayer

MY SOCIAL EXPERIMENTS WITH COLOR
As I grew deeper into my fascination with the Psychology of Color, Feng Shui Colors, and how colors associated with our own healing abilities, through our Chakra system, I began to translate this wisdom into my own life. Naturally as a professional organizer, I also began to teach my clients what I was learning about color. They began to experiment with this new tool I'm going to teach you too!
Once I learned about the 7 Chakra System, I received the insight that there were 7 energies of ZEN that I'd be teaching through a process called ZENergie. I began to dive deeper into how I was able to correlate being intentional with color to attract what I needed in life. This is where I began my social experiments using the Art & Psychology of color to attract what I needed most in life.
COLOR ATTRACTS OUR INTENTIONS
As part of my social experiments with color,
- I'd wear royal blue to networking events to amplify and attract relationships with clarity, loyalty, trust, abundance professionalism and success.
- I'd wear purple tights to amplify and attract harmonious relationships.
- I'd wear green nail polish and eat green grapes while wearing something green to amplify and attract prosperity, abundance and luck!
- I'd wear pink tights, earrings, heels to amplify and attract kindness, compassion and generosity.
- I'd wear black to showcase the pops of color I was intending to spark attention to.
THE POWER OF COLOR INTENTIONS
I became profoundly conscious of my color intentions, cues and choices with my social experiments over time. I felt excited and inspired to play, express myself and manifest more meaningfulness, vibrancy and joy into life being intentional with my color choices.
Every time I saw the color associated with my intention it was a visual cue to help me stay focused. It was affirming and I noticed new inspirations and opportunities would arise. Whether it be to meet someone new, spark up an inspiring conversation or compliment someone. I'd be inspired to talk with someone who was wearing a beautiful blue scarf, or pretty pink earrings or hot neon orange running shoes. Inevitably there would always be a new insight, relationship or experience that came from my conscious color choices.

COLOR INFLUENCES OUR MENTAL WELL BEING: The Science & Psychology Of Color
Can color result in improved memory abilities?
"Color is believed to be the most important visual experience to human beings (2). It functions as a powerful information channel to the human cognitive system and has been found to play a significant role in enhancing memory performance (3). Color can be very effective in learning and educational setting, marketing, communication, or even sport. For instance, a marketing study has found that color can increase brand recognition by up to 80% (4). Most advertisements use color as one of the important element in influencing people’s attention, attitude towards the product, and pressuring decision making (5). According to White (6), colored advertisements can attract people to read the advertisement up to 42% more often than the non-colored advertisement. This shows the importance of color in making the information or message more attractive to the public.
In the educational setting, higher demand is put on excellent academic achievement. The extent to which students utilize their cognitive abilities is also important and may contribute to better academic achievement (7). The cognitive abilities of the students refer to the way the students perceive, pay attention, remember, think, and understand the lessons. There need to be strategies to facilitate the learning process and colors can play a role in motivating students to learn and profit from their educational experiences."
COLOR INFLUENCES OUR EMOTIONAL WELL BEING
THE POWER OF COLOR LIGHT ENERGY
To see color, you have to have light.Color is the combination of light and energy. This energy amplifies at different energy frequencies. When we are influenced by color it affects our state of being, moods and energy. How do you currently feel in your space? Do you feel good? Are things functioning? Are you in your flow?
THE POWER OF EMOTIONAL FREQUENCY ENERGY
Our emotions are energy frequencies, too. Energy in motion = Emotion. Knowing color is energy, emotions are energy and we occupy spaces filled with energy means we can utilize diverse frequencies of color to elevate our moods, energy and the spaces we occupy. Now, this isn't a complex science that you need to spend years understanding to begin applying in your life. Our super power is in making conscious color choices to be highly intentional about the energy we are amplifying and the people, places and things we are attracting in our lives. Now, you can attract what you need most in life with a method called ZENergie.
THE POWER OF CHAKRA LIGHT ENERGY HEALING
The Light Center in the black mountains of North Carolina has a light chamber room with a panel of lights surrounding the room programmed to shine one color at a time for five minutes. The seven (chakra) colors begin with red, continue with consecutive hues of the rainbow, and end with white light. The frequency of color brings about balance and harmony in the physical and emotional body, while rejuvenating one's mind and spirit.
