The Color Yellow

The Power of the color Yellow from Shimmerlings

The exact shade of yellow is what helps to determine it’s meaning.  A pure, bright and sunny yellow is the easiest color for the human eye to discern. People who are blind to other common colors can usually visualize yellow. It is full of creative and intellectual energy, yellow note pads may even keep you happier while you work!

Yellow symbolized wisdom and also communicates happiness and joy. People of generally high intellect actually favor the color yellow.  Bright yellow daffodils are a floral symbol of unrequited love; although yellow flowers are a modern symbol of friendship.

Just like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings to us clarity and awareness. Yellow-Green may create a disoriented feeling as it can mean deceit. Orange-Yellow imparts a sense of establishment, and a clean light yellow clears the mind – making it active and alert.

Add some of the color yellow into your life when you are looking to:

  • find clarity for important decision making
  • feel relief from panic, nervousness, exhaustion or “burnout”
  • sharpen memory and concentration skill
