The Color Purple/Violet

The Power of the color Purple or Violet from Shimmerlings

Violet is the color of royalty and good judgment. It is the color used by people seeking spiritual fulfillment.  It is told that if you surround yourself with violet you will generate a calming peace of mind.  It is a wonderful color to use in mediation.

Violet has been used to symbolize magic and mystery as well as wealth.  Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors on the palette, that violet  is believed to be the ideal color.  Red is a focusing, dynamic and active energy while blue is cooling, calming and expansive.

Violet brings a new dynamic to the expansion of blue and the activity of red. Red brings practicality to the undirected expansiveness of the blue, and allows more creative energy to emerge. For this reason, violet is associated with imagination and inspiration.
