The Magic of Yellow


Yellow is one of those colors that you either love or you hate. I personally like it, I think that is has a beautiful “personality”.

Light yellow is my favorite and if I had my way it would be the perfect color for my house. (If I had one of course)

If you’ve read up on magical topics, then you know that Color Magic is one of the most basic forms of magic. You can use certain colors to decorate your living space, burn candles of a certain color to bring things into your life, or wear a certain color for a specific effect. It all creates a certain ambiance.

Colors have different vibrations meaning they invoke different thoughts/feelings/emotions. 

I’m sure there’s a color that makes you feel warm, makes you feel safe, makes you feel calm, or makes you feel happy. Yellow is a great color for this. It creates a wonderful, light, cheerful, atmosphere.

Yellow is great for encouraging intellect, confidence, and communication. If you’re trying to study for a test and need concentration then burn a yellow candle or sit in a room primarily decorated with the color.

Yellow also represents happiness, joy, and creativity. If you’ve suffered from burn-out and are ready to find your creative spark again, spend time with a light, airy, yellow to help you find your passion again. Paint a picture using yellow.

Think smiley faces, sunshine, and sunflowers. How can yellow not make you happy? 

This color also corresponds with the Solar Plexus Chakra. This chakra governs your individuality, your sense of self, and your power. Yellow stones like amber, citrine, and topaz can help balance your chakra and get you back on track.

Speaking of yellow, lemon essential oil is great for all of these things as well. It gives you a boost of creativity and energy, cheers you up, and helps you to embrace your you-ness.

So I’d love to know, how do you feel about yellow? What’s your “happy” color?

    I love yellow – from lemon yellow to gold. I especially love the color of forsythias in the spring. That is the perfect shade of yellow! Yellow and red are always options for me, but the color I tend to wear most often when I feel happy is actually a flavor of orange, along the lines of a dusty pumpkin color.  🙂

  • I love the color yellow! (lighter shades as well)  Funny that you post this, I've been drawn to yellow lately. Dandelions, Chamomile, lemons, I have a citrine sitting on my desk. As usual love the post. 🙂

    Thank you Sarah! Mmm… Chamomile, lemons, and citrine, some of my favorite yellow-ish things! I've actually been carrying a piece of Citrine with me ever so often. I'm loving it so far. Sunstone is pretty awesome as well.

    I actually had to google forsythias, very beautiful! Yellow flowers always seem to crop up first in the spring time, like they are so drawn to the Sun they just can't help themselves!
    I must admit Autumn colors like reds and oranges are my favorite, such warmth! My living room is decorated in them.
