Karin Hunkel, founder of ANGEL MINERALS, color book author and founder of "Holistic Color Consulting" (1986) explains in her book "Holistic Color Consulting" (Stb) the different levels on which colors work.
For example Red
As the strongest power color, it really gives us power and has been proven to raise blood pressure. It also makes us appear confident and dominant when we wear it. And don't forget: Red is hot! Use the color when you want to show "horns".
With orange we give ourselves warmth and conjure up cosiness in our apartment. Nowhere and in nothing are we more beautiful than in the orange light of a sunset. Otherwise, Orange helps with abdominal cramps and everything that makes us women suffer.
Yellow stands for joie de vivre and zest for life. It is the cheer-maker among colors. But be careful: yellow promotes digestion and whets your appetite. If you want to lose weight, you should avoid it in clothing and instead go for purple. Better to buy a bouquet of yellow flowers.
It is the color of nature and, according to the ancient Indian chakra teaching, also the color of the heart (no - not red!). People who have lovesickness suddenly wear a lot of green without knowing why. And this color actually helps. It harmonizes on every level.
This cool fresh color supports our immune system. It is the color of the "defense" and should not necessarily be worn when looking for an apartment or introducing yourself for a new job. It has an immediate defensive effect. Pay attention to where you can't go wrong with her.
Light blue looks very different from dark blue and this again different from royal blue or pigeon blue. Blue has the most nuances and the most varied of statements: e.g. denim blue is cool and casual, dark blue is an ideal suit color, light blue is nice for babies and pigeon blue makes it appear slimmer.
Here comes the color that curbs appetite. Also works if you put a purple amethyst under your lungs and suck it. Lilac, as the light variant, has a soothing effect and is ideal for all rooms in which you want to concentrate, e.g. in training rooms. Violet helps in learning.
Pink (Magenta) The Telekom color is loud and squeaky. With it you stand out, more than with red. Unfortunately, it only suits a few. But if you are black haired, be sure to wear them. It is also considered a protective paint against negative influences.
The color of the rose quartz makes you appear sensitive when you wear it. They appear much softer, more reserved, and also lighter than with any other cool color. Who knows that rose was THE color of men in the last century?
Each of the spectral colors represents certain qualities of life that we dominate or negate. The background why someone cannot bear certain colors is stored in the subconscious. Unresolved problems and experiences in childhood are “basement” along with a color that matches the theme. As long as the problem is not resolved, the corresponding color is avoided. This enables us, as holistic color consultants, to recognize the physical and psychological problems the person has on the basis of the rejected color. This makes color advice a "holistic" color advice.
