SECRETS OF COLOR: THE POWER OF YELLOW

The third color in the spectrum is yellow. We are told that this color belongs to the planet Mercury. Mercury confers a quick intellect by stimulating the nervous system. To be quick-witted the nerves should be in an active condition throughout the body; so nothing can remain stagnant under the beneficial influence of this planet. Wisdom is said to be conferred by Mercury and its color – yellow. Therefore Buddha always clothed his priests in yellow, which color has stood for wisdom and intellect throughout the ages.

Yellow electric lamps or glass windows stimulate the nerves of the brain and the body and cure a stagnant condition of the internal organs. They should not be used for highly nervous subjects.

We find that yellow predominates spectroscopically in all herbs which, are purgatives or nerve-stimulants, such as senna, sulphur, fig juice, tartar, phosphorus and castor oil. An extreme amount of yellow has a disastrous over-stimulating effect upon the nerves, causing death, as with prussic acid and strychnine, which are very yellow. Dr. Babbit proved that plain water, hung in the sunlight in a sealed lens of yellow glass, becomes impregnated with very nerve-animating properties such as phosphorus and sodium, and that it will have a purgative action if drunk, where possibly other drugs have failed. This lens must not be filled entirely as it will absorb such highly expansive chemicals from the yellow rays that it would burst if full. It is interesting to learn that the water so treated goes bad in a few days.

Yellow also corresponds to the musical note of E. Its jewel is the yellow topaz, and it represents luminosity. When seen in the human aura yellow, if dark and crude, it tells of deceit, treachery and cowardice (we have all heard of the ‘yellow streak’!), but if pale, pure and luminous it shows high wisdom and intellectuality.

Healing Attributes:

  • Yellow provides energy for the muscular system, the nervous system and the brain. It stimulates and purifies the blood and lymph systems. It cleanses the liver, intestines, and the skin. It has a psychological effect on the body, creating feelings of cheerfulness and positivity. Illness that respond well to yellow include: constipation, diabetes, dyspepsia, eczema, flatulence, indigestion, kidney problems, paralysis, piles, rheumatism, and the spleen.

As Your Favorite Color:

  • If yellow is your favorite color you know how to express yourself well, and you thrive on new and different experiences. You enjoy entertaining and being entertained. You communicate well with others, and are full of good ideas. You have an excellent sense of humor, and can be the life and soul of a party when you want to be.

Support in Daily Living:

  • Yellow helps you overcome frustration, loneliness, and depression. It is mentally stimulating and promotes concentration, good ideas, and clear thinking. It encourages you to communicate with others, and helps stimulate feelings of joy, happiness, and excitement. You should wear yellow if you have a tendency to take things too seriously, or underestimate yourself. It works against a depressed state of mind, and boosts esteem.

Flower:

  • A yellow flower symbolizes generosity, good fortune, abundance, prosperity, and fertility. Yellow roses symbolize friendship.

  • A desire for creative self-expression.
