I used to really dislike it.
I disliked it when I was most out of balance, most scared, and most suffering from very low self esteem. Why?
It sort of took courage to stand in front of its radiant brightness.
It kind of felt like there was nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from its bold, sunny 'niceness.' And I wasn't feeling that.
These days of course, I have learned so much about colour, and the very important part yellow plays in self confidence, in self esteem, in the gut, liver, spleen and pancreas for wellness.
Yellow is the colour of the Solar Plexus Chakra. Solar obviously comes from the sun - a most important healer - despite our local issues with the ozone layer - we need it. Simple as that.
Seasonal Affective Disorder can be treated with it, and in its absence, can be treated with yellow.
The Latin word Plexus is described as follows:
noun pl. plexuses or plexus
- a complexly interconnected arrangement of parts; network
- ANAT. a network of blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, nerves, etc.: the solar plexus (of nerves) in the abdomen
When you are a 'bundle of nerves' the right kind of yellow can settle you. I use lemon to cut, clear, cleanse and delete, and gold to restore, recharge and fill.
I don't have to tell you that Gold is untarnishable, valued highly and awarded for bravery - it is a sign of strength and power.
We use to gold build up courage, remember people who are 'chicken' are sometimes called lily livered, yellow bellied and other similar names? Yellow/gold radiates that fear away.
So if you feel a little resistance to golds or yellows, try a test. Consider how you feel about yourself in general. Consider the gold. Then use an affirmation such as 'I am strong' over and over and over, for several minutes or over the course of a few days, and take another look at the gold. See if you feel a difference with the colour after you've used the affirmation.
And let me know how you get on.
I'd love to know.
