Color psychology is the study of hues as a determinant of human behavior. Colors play a very important role in our lives, and - unless someone has consciously worked on treating all colors alike - consciously or sub-consciously we use colors as a means to think the Thoughts that we do.
I personally love colors (and flowers), and you will see the evidence of that in my house. It's full of a variety of colorful adornments. One common advice from all the astrologers I'd been to during my non-spiritual days was to not use the black color, as it would cause me harm. On the contrary, I was asked to donate black-colored objects / clothes in order to absolve my past sins or to repel evil energies. Yes, I believed in all of this at one point of time... until I realized that I have my own personal mind that can think on its own, and that it does not need to blindly follow what others say.
Wearing a black-colored shirt / t-shirt always caused me some kind of harm on the same day until I consciously talked to myself about it one day.
Ever since then, I started loving colors even more. Not that I rebelliously started using black, but I came to the point of loving all colors equally. However, I still have a few favorites.
My favorite colors - in the descending order - are Green, Yellow, Pink, Cyan, Blue, and quite a few others.
It's mere perception
Been playing with the mind for 10+ years now, so I have now come to the realization that - just like matter - colors are only perceptions of Energy / Vibration. There many be hundreds of other ways of explaining matter, but that is the fundamental understanding of all that exists in the world.
Pablo Picasso says that Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions, however, now you know your emotions and mind much more deeper to realize that which is the cause of everything that happens in and around you.
It is also an important realization that if you feel anxious in a yellow room or calm or relaxed in a blue room, it is only because that is what you have consciously or sub-consciously come to believe. It is these beliefs that companies / offices use to work around the psychology of their employees. However, these are very short-lived things, in my experience. You cannot retain employees by painting walls in specific colors, can you?
Your hidden Beliefs
Spirituality does not mean renunciation. So, even if someone - on turning to spirituality - may start saying, "Now, I'm neutral, and I don't love any particular color. Let me only believe in one color, say, White, and discard everything else", let's understand that it's a choice. You have the freedom that you must use to CHOOSE what YOU want.
If you believe you have resident Beliefs in your mind about colors, why not make use of them in a positive way? The only purpose of Science is that you make the best use of it in your favor, and that's what I've started doing.
Recently, I went to the shopping market, and bought myself a few artificial flowers of various colors, and placed them in specific corners of my house, just for fun, and my house looks even more beautiful now. I determined the color corners of my house using another science, which is commonly known as Feng Shui (which I call Fun Shui, as that with Sagar Sonker's Twist).
