This influence varies from room to room. In the bedrooms where we sleep for much of our day, it affects our dreams and motivations. It affects our whole psychology and shapes our future.
Color is one of the best ways to organize this energy. The light reflecting from color enters the hypothalamus, affecting the endocrine system, which controls our heartbeat, and our breath, as well as triggering a muscular reaction or behavior. According to research, children’s reaction to a color may be different to that of an adult, because kids don’t have codes, beliefs, judgements, blockages, and such like, so they can hear their heart and inner voice more clearly. In research conducted by the German Academy of Color Science (and reported in the International Journal of Biosocial Research Volume 3, Issue 1), the walls of a school’s classroom were changed from orange and white to royal and light blue. A gray carpet was installed in place of an orange rug. Finally, the fluorescent lights and diffuser panels were replaced with full-spectrum lighting. As a result, the pupil’s mean systolic blood pressure dropped from 120 to 100 (nearly 17%). The children also showed better behavior and were more attentive and less fidgety/aggressive according to the teachers and independent observers. When the room was returned to its original decor, however, the readings gradually increased again and the children once again became rowdy.
Each color has a different frequency/wavelength that may trigger a different reaction in various children: One color may calm down one child but make another aggressive. This is where a kid’s own spiritual energy comes in. With the first breath a child takes after birth, his or her soul adopts an energy type, an element or a gua. For each gua, according to the cycle of elements, a color is supportive, so using that color is relieving. From the chart below, you can find the most supportive color for your kid:
While picking color, you may want to consider the biggest palette of paint colors possible for a wider range of colors. You can create combinations of the two rather than picking one color:
- Green and blue represent the freshness and color of nature.
- Yellow and orange display the color of flowers and happiness.
- Blue and white may be a favorite among boys, but girls may prefer turquoise tones.
- Red and green are ideal for creating contrast, although it is better to apply red on just one wall.
- Silver and gold are both chic and royal colors.
Kids are super-sensitive to color. Picking the right color will increase their motivation at school, help them rest and sleep better, and bring them much more peace…
