But How Do I Harness The Power Of Color?

When I first discovered that color has the power to change specific aspects of our personality, I couldn’t wait to play with each one!

I had been seeing color in people’s auras for years, and was noticing consistent traits. For example, seeing gold in someone’s aura often meant that they are great at business and excellent at getting things done. But over time, I wanted more out of my relationship with color. I wanted to not only observe it, but to actually learn how to use it.

Now imagine that you could absorb some gold energy for yourself? Even if you are not naturally business-minded, using gold energy could be a powerful way to bring out that side of yourself.

While this may sound appealing, how exactly do we harness the power of color? It happens through something that I call color activation. This is a process that I have worked on and personally used.

The color activation process involves harnessing the energy behind color.

When we activate color, we bridge the gap between observing its properties and actually pulling that energy into our lives for our benefit.

The closest thing I can compare it to is watching a cooking show on tv. While I absolutely love watching professional chefs prepare a meal, it is a completely different experience to create something magical in my own kitchen.

There are many ways to activate color, and a simple place to start is by visualizing it. Using gold as our example, you might visualize gold for a few moments before sitting down to outline a business plan. Gold is also effective before trying to get through a to-do list.

You could picture gold energy covering you from head to toe, steeping you in its practical effectiveness. You could return to this visual any time you wanted a boost throughout your day.

I recommend practicing with one color at a time, so you can get a feel for its particular energy. Once you become accustomed to it, you will be able to easily pull from that energy whenever you need it.

To learn more about activating color, make sure to tune in to Cosmic Coach, my show on Hay House radio. This week’s theme is all about activating color, and I will be leading a color activation during the show itself.

Please let me know if you have ever tried activating color, I’d love to hear your experiences in the comments below!

    Each week it would be amazing to get just one color to work with. This week I am going to work with gold in my business! Thank You Dougal!

    Thank you Dougall. I can hardly wait for your book to arrive.
    I have used the green colour for healing, but it was no great success.

    After hearing you speak on the Year of Miracles call I decided to play with the colors to see the differences in how I felt. So I went on Amazon and got a number of Pashmina shawls in different colors. I’m using the orange one a lot right now because I really need more balance and it helps tremendously. I use emerald green when I’m writing, gold when I’m working on my business and pink when I need to surround myself with love. I went to a TM meditation yesterday and was all in purple with my purple pashmina…felt lovely and I went deep. I’ve been playing with color in different ways for years, but this feels very direct and conscious and I love it.

    Dougall, after hearing your speak on the Year of Miracles call I was fascinated by the possibility of the meaning of colours and that their energy could possibly be harnessed. I have many colourful scarves and have been wearing them and noting how I feel. I can’t wait for your book!

    I am going to try to wear different colours. I often end up in black. I hope one day I can learn what colours surround me

    When are you on Hay House Radio and can I find it on my computer? I’ve been out of the loop. First, I was very sick then my computer wouldn’t work. Hopefully, we’re both on the road to recovery!

    Hi, I am a Yoga therapist and at the end of a class I look up on the ceiling and I have seen green and
    sometimes yellow/gold. I occasionally blue. I used to see a color. I always felt good when I see it but I don’t know what it means. Im excited to get your book.
