The concept of Color of You is based from psychology, that color has a vibrational frequency that matches an emotion. In my research practicing art therapy and seeing which colors resonate with a person also correlates to their psychological state. Coincidentally, Color of You painting series is associated to the chakra system, from Ancient Hinduism as well. The aligned chakras, balanced energy, helps you find flow and harmony in your life.
When balanced you feel as if you’re in a “flow” state and it makes your desires easy to manifest. If your chakra is out of balance you will be drawn to that particular color. The hue can be healing for you. You will also feel certain emotions (and hold the feeling in particular body area) that are related to that chakra.
