Ways to Use Rainbow Colors to Help You Make Positive Changes







Rainbow colors can help you develop greater self-awareness. They support you, as you learn to relate better with yourself and others, inspire you to grow, and increase your happiness. 

Once you understand your own personality, what things you prefer to do or not do, and what is comfortable for you, it’s much easier to expand your horizons, notice you have options, and if need be, amend your behavior to enrich the quality of daily living.

Having alternatives about how to behave, rather than just responding in whatever way you’re used to doing things, gives you the freedom to act in a life-affirming way. This is especially true if you realize that coping skills you learned as a child or young adult have often led to frustration and dead ends. 

Are you tired of repeating the same mistakes over and over again?


Here are Rainbow Color Characteristics and Great Ways to Use Them:


Red: excitement, passion, courage, love

Orange: social, enthusiastic, self-assurance, playfulness

Yellow: cheerful, sunny, optimism, clarity of thought

Green: fresh start, wellness, stress reduction, growth

Blue: soothing, cleansing, unifying, eases communication

Indigo: intelligence, idealism, intuition, infinity

Violet: inspiration, wisdom, spirit, royalty


Use RED when you feel you're stuck in a rut, lack enthusiasm, and want motivation to act.

Use ORANGE when you feel shy, are grieving, or want to be more social and vivacious.

Use YELLOW when you feel grouchy, need cheering, or your thoughts are confused.

Use GREEN when you feel up tight, for eye strain, or want to begin your day over.

Use BLUE when you are agitated, thirsty, nervous, and tongue tied.

Use INDIGO when you feel less than, want to stick to your principles, lose touch with your inner knowing or your ego is too high.

Use VIOLET when you want to connect with spirit, are working to heal physical or emotional issues, contact higher consciousness.

Colors bypass old patterns and rationalizing. They interact with you at the cellular level. 

Colors are instinctual, so envision, wear, or decorate with those that call to you. 

Colors are energetic powerhouses that rejuvenate, restore, encourage, and motivate you to change attitudes as well as behaviors. 

Have fun as you visualize, affirm, and take in those colors you sense you need.

Did you know rainbows are actually full circles of light? Most people view a rainbow on the ground, and that’s why they look like a semi-circle or arc of the rainbow that forms in the sky.

Rainbows appear because of both reflection and refraction (bending) of light in water droplets in the atmosphere. Rainbows can be seen not just in or after a rain shower, but are seen in mist, spray, fog, and dew. Visibility is possible, whenever there are water drops in the air and the light shines from behind at a 42 degree angle (opposite from the sun). For more see Discoverykids.com  and Judy Garland Singing Over the Rainbow on YOUTUBE.

Rainbows have been a sign or hope, happiness, and harmony to me. The picture below is one I snapped right after a rain storm.





The bottom part of the color spectrum wasn’t visible at the angle where I stood. Do you know what colors are missing? Isn’t it fun to capture a rainbow in a photo? 

Perhaps when you do, you’ll think of that pot of gold. Do you want to be the one to come along and claim it?

I wonder how many people nowadays know this rainbow legend; at the end of every rainbow lays a pot of gold just waiting for the right person to discover it.

I’d like to suggest a pot of gold/treasure awaits you, each time you learn more about yourself. That's why elements in Colors of Joy: A Woman’s Guide for Self-Discovery, Balance, and Bliss work with you to create self-compassion, enhance well-being, and increase joy. What better reasons could there be for you to purchase Colors of Joy

  1. Hi Nancy,
    This was a very interesting post. I was aware of some of the affects of some colors but not all of these. I have seen some rainbows that have many colors in and they are the most amazing sight. Seeing a rainbow does make me feel anew and joyful - which was God's promise after Noah and the Ark came through the destruction of the world from water. He promised that he would never destroy the world by water and the rainbow was the sign of a new world. Thanks for sharing all this great information about color. have a healthy, happy & blessed day!

  2. Nancy I love looking at the rainbows after a good rain. We get them quite often here too since I live right next to the bay. Isn't it incredible what nature is capable of?

  4. Very beautiful rainbow picture Nancy. I moved from a gorgeous mountainous area to a rather meh prairie area of Canada. One of the things that I do enjoy about the prairies is because of the flatness you will sometimes see multiple rainbows.
