March, Relax with Aquamarine and Aqua




Color Energy Relaxation Tips




Aquamarine and aqua are the calming colors I'll explore during March. Green-blue colors promote a smooth flow of communication and are easy on the eyes. These shades reflect the colors in water and sky, and is a color family that creates a sense of expansiveness and tranquility.

Please Note: Aquamarine is the name given to the gemstone and aqua is most often used to describe clothing, d├ęcor, or a paint color. Paint colors can vary, depending on which paint company you consult. See the photo above and get back to me about how many shades of blue-green you see in the water. I just love the first shade closest to the sea foam.

Put aqua in your life, if your thoughts are jumbled. Its color energy helps clarify perceptions as well as clear confusion in thoughts and speech. Wear an aqua cap or shirt and breeze through your work. Paint a wall with an aqua hue and notice if you feel more serene.

Don an aqua scarf or tie to help center your body and spirit. Use it when you feel you're in a rut, or find yourself judging the actions of others. Reflect on aqua to help restore your equilibrium and balance. 

To reduce stress, visualize yourself being bathed by the warm, healing waters one finds in the Bahamas or Caribbean. Sailors have used aqua and aquamarine as a good luck charms. Old mariners' tales confirm these colors assure safe travel on water.

Water is the Feng Shui element associated with blues like aqua. Items including a water fountain, aqua vase, or an aqua blue accent pillow can be placed in a room to express the water element. 

Then observe if the activities conducted in that room flow more freely. In Feng Shui, aqua is the color of the throat chakra, and symbol of fluid communication.

Aquamarine is the modern birthstone of March, and in geological terms, is one of the members of the beryl group of minerals. Gemstones made of aquamarine can range from the palest see-through blue to a darker shade of light blue. Aquamarines are prized for their clarity and transparency. When made into jewelry, they are treasured as decorative necklaces, bracelets, and rings. See more about this lovely gem at Gemselect.com.

  1. that explains it! Aqua is my new favorite color and I need some peace! I am very interested in how color vibrations affect us. I am not cross sensory about it like someone I know, but I am really drawn to coral, and aqua right now, not necessarily together.

    I am so happy you left a comment on my blog and your blog name. I'll be back often to see what you've shared.

  4. This is very interesting. I love the bright aquamarine color in the water image you have above. I typically wear dark teal scrubs every day, and admit I'm getting a bit sick of them. But, still, I do love the color. Considering how stressful PA school is, I think it's smart the school chose that soothing color for our uniforms. ;-)

    Thanks for visiting Goodlicious and sharing at Turn It Up Tuesday!
