Find Out How Colors Influence Your Actions

Mahavaastu 2

HOUSTON: According to Vastu, the world of colors is unique in its own way and influences each and every action of our lives. While some colors make you want to get out of your chair and do something, others make you lethargic and want you to nestle down and relax. Some colors are so vibrant and articulate that they speak to you, while some are very quiet and peaceful. There are also colors which motivate, inspire or influence you in a positive way, whereas, there are others that create negative feelings in you. There are also some colors that emanate the desire for closeness, intimacy and love.

As we all know that Holi celebrations begin with a Holika bonfire on the night before Holi, when people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is a free-for-all carnival of colors, where participants play, chase and color each other with dry powder and colored water.

Holi, also known as the festival of colors, fun, frolic and love, is celebrated in the Spring season. The festival date varies every year, as per the Hindu calendar, on the Phalguna Purnima (Full Moon), and generally falls in the month of March. Today, it has become popular even among the non-Hindus in many parts of India and Asia.  However, did you know that this festival of colors could also be celebrated in the Vastu way?

Each individual has a unique taste and chooses colors according to his/her personal preferences. There are no absolutes in the world of colors. However, there are some universal principles that apply to all colors. Just as everything in this world is made up of the five basic elements of Nature, or Panchtattva, i.e., the Fire, Earth, Water, Air and Space, all colors are primarily the shades of colors of these basic five elements. This fact has been proven by Vastu Shastra and also established in the modern stream of color psychology.

For example, shades of green and yellow create a sense of being at peace and well-being, and if you are playing Holi with these colors, especially in the South-West Vastu Zone, (the Zone of Relationships and Skills) they foster interesting and open conversations between family and friends, and can dispel loneliness and depression. Therefore, shades of green and yellow are also called Nurturing Colors, and are recommended during Holi, as per Vastu.

According to the documented research on Vastu Shastra in the world’s largest book of Vastu, MahaVastu Handbook, there are colors with a sense of sharpness, wittiness, uniqueness and intelligence, which are the inherent qualities of an intellectual. Therefore, these are called Intellectual Colors. Use of these colors in the right Vastu direction/zone can command respect without being overbearing. These colors are also recommended for creative studies, libraries and art galleries. Grey, shades/tones of blue and a few lighter shades of red fall in this category, as they facilitate the optimal performance from a relaxed mind.

In addition to the above, there are also colors that are romantic in nature, such as red, which according to Vastu is the color of Love. So, if you play Holi with these colors in the North-North-West Vastu Zone, or facing towards the North-North-West Zone, an intense relationship develops between you and others. Pink, purple and light orange colors also fall in the category of Romantic colors. Actually, according to Vastu Shastra, these colors also suggest purity and innocence.

There are colors that impart a very refreshing and rejuvenating feeling in oneself. These colors include all the different shades of green, brown and other shades of warm earth colors. When applied in the North-North-East Zone, (the Vastu Zone of Healing), these colors facilitate better healing and immunity. So, all those, who love to play Holi with these colors should prefer playing it in the North-North-East Vastu Zone of their homes or offices.

Therefore, to conclude, try celebrating and enjoying Holi, this year in the Vastu way to bring home more Love, Money, Happiness and Prosperity, as well as learn both the positive and negative effects of each color in your life through the various documented research case studies available in the different online books and YouTube descriptions of `MahaVastu’—the Scientific, Modern, Refined and Tested Version of Ancient Vastu!
