Colour is a power which directly influences the soul. - Purple & Indigo - color therapy/healing & meaning



Jeg er heldig, jeg har dager fulle av farger. Hver dag velges nye. Det er alltid spennende å få oppleve hvilken farge denne nye dagen vil bringe. 

Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation.

“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul.” 
― Wassily Kandinsky


Fioler er noen flotte blomster, både i farge og av natur. 
De ser så sårbare så, så spinkle. Men skinnet bedrar. 
De er steintøffe, og  egentlig noen hardhauser. De overlever både tørke og for mye vann. Så ikke undervurder denne vakre fargerike blomsten. 

Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Most children love the color purple. Purple is the color most favored by artists. Thursday's color is purple.

Violet is the color of purpose. Violet is associated with the Crown chakra (This links individual and universal).

“The true work of art is born from the 'artist': a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being.” 
― Wassily Kandinsky


Lavender flowers have long since been used to treat digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety, and restlessness. Until World War I, lavender was used to treat and disinfect wounds. For centuries, English farmers would place lavender flowers in their hats to prevent headache and sunstroke. Women would place sachets of lavender in their closets and wardrobes for fragrance, in addition to using it in potpourri. Hospitals used lavender as an antiseptic and disinfectant to sterilize surfaces and equipment.



“Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.” 

Violet Energy

Violet is a combination of blue and red. Red is a focusing, dynamic and active energy while blue is cooling, calming and expansive. Violet brings a new dynamic to the expansion of blue and the activity of red. Red brings practicality to the undirected expansiveness of the blue, and allows more creative energy to emerge. For this reason, violet is associated with imagination and inspiration.


Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.

”…..jeg tenker ofte på disse blomstene:
livet har lært meg
at ingen stengel er sterk nok til
å bære gledens solblomst.

..............så kan vi filosofere litt over hva Hans Børli mente med det..........

Tenk over hvilken farge du velger i dag. Observer fargen du har på dine klær. Se på fargene du omgir deg med. Hva føler du deg vel i? Hvilken farge gjør deg godt?

Kunst er kjent for å ha en beroligende virkning på sinnet.  Kunst og farger kan også ha motsatt effekt.  Alt avgjøres i hvilken mentale tilstand du er i. Men hva som gjør ditt sinn rolig eller urolig er det bare du som vet. 

Uansett, omgi deg med alt som gir deg en positiv følelse. Det er da man har det som best.

Leonardo da Vinci proclaimed that you can increase the power of meditation ten-fold by meditating under the gentle rays of Violet, as found in Church windows.


En blomst,
som svaier i vinden.
Den vises ikke alltid bak ugresset,
men den sprer lys til de som ser den.
Den strekker seg og føler seg ikke presset,
men den sprer glede istede.
Du er nettopp en slik blomst.
En blomst…som sprer glede.
