1. Violet is the color of the crown chakra, and it is associated with the energy center at the top of the head. The organ related to this chakra is the brain, while its endocrine gland is the pineal gland.

2. It is a very calming color, concerned with the energy of the higher mind. It is the color of self knowledge, spiritual awareness, purification, dignity, honor, and hope.

3. If the violet color vibrations or the crown chakra are unbalanced, this can bring out some negative aspects of the violet color:

  • Feelings of superiority;
  • Cruelty and arrogance;
  • No concern for others;
  • Lack of purpose;
  • Lack of reality;
  • Absent-mindedness;
  • Depression;
  • Fear;

When a person has a balanced crown chakra and a balanced amount of violet vibrations, then the positive aspects of this color are:

Violet helps our body to better assimilate nutrients, minerals and vitamins. It is a color that affects our skeletal and nervous system, and it is good for the spleen, bone growth, menopause, epilepsy, kidney problems, scalp diseases, and leucoderma (white patches on the skin).

But above all, violet nourishes the blood in the upper brain.

Color Therapy and the Power of Violet in Your Everyday Life

Just to make you understand that I am not exaggerating and over-evaluating the power of violet, and that these are not just mere theories, let me remind you what Leonardo Da Vinci once wrote about the this color.

Leonardo Da Vinci considered violet to be the color that can increase the power of meditation. He wrote that meditating under the rays of violet, such as those entering through church windows, can incredibly increase the power of contemplation and prayer.

Violet is therefore a great color to use in rooms where you practice relaxation and meditation techniques, as well as in spaces intended for introspective and contemplative thinking such as studios, libraries, bedrooms, verandas, and gardens. But that is not all!

1. Violet stimulates blood flow to the brain, and it can be used to enhance intuition, imagination and creativity. In fact, it is the favorite color of many painters, writers, poets, and other artists. When creating and composing his operas, Richard Wagner surrounded himself with this amazing color.

2. Violet can be also very helpful for those suffering from insomnia or stress. Adorning your home with flowers like violets, lavender, lilacs, and orchids, or wearing gems such as amethyst, purple fluorite, sugulite, lepidolite, and charoite, will help you eliminate worries and doubts, and achieve inner balance and mental peace.

3. Violet is also used to alleviate migraines. Crystal healers suggest placing an amethyst on the center of the forehead to relieve pain.

4. Violet is also a good appetite suppressant. Eating more violet foods such as eggplants, purple cabbage, grapes, blueberries, and blackberries, will help you relax and keep hunger at bay.

5. All in all, wearing violet clothes or violet night gowns will help you become more calm, intuitive, creative and contemplative!
