Yellow and Self-Esteem

No discussion of the solar plexus chakra color would be complete without talking about self-esteem - your fundamental power.

So, what is self esteem?

Self esteem is how you feel about yourself. It is your thoughts and feelings about yourself. For example: I feel good about myself. I am kind and compassionate. I am competent. I like my body.

Healthy self esteem means that you have basic trust in yourself. That you have a sense of self that does not fall apart when you are faced with challenges or things do not go your way.

When you have a healthy self esteem, you know that it's ok to make mistakes. And that you can learn from mistakes.

The level of your self esteem determines how you behave in life - how you interact with others, spouse, children, friends, coworkers, authority figures, and strangers.

When you have high self esteem, you have a drive to express yourself and to communicate openly and honestly about your needs and desires.

You choose healthy relationships and you recognize the value of these relationships. You treat others with respect, non judgmental attitude, and fairness.

When I want to feel stronger and more self assured I sometimes consciously choose to wear the solar plexus chakra color yellow. I noticed that when I wear yellow, I have more energy, I express myself openly, I stand taller and I am happier.

What others said....

Yellow and gold express me to the T. My best experience with yellow was when i went outside and found my husband painting test swatches of yellow on our house. We lived in a very conservative area. It was supposed to be a surprise. My home that I raised my family in was painted a beautiful yellow to say I Love You.

I like the color yellow because it reminds me of my best friend Kristine. Yellow is her favorite color. Yellow makes me feel warm and happy because it is the color of the sun. I like how yellow is bright too. It can brighten my day if I see it on a wall or someone's shirt.

I like yellow because I like bright, warm colors. I have worn yellow blouses before. Yellow is the color of sunshine so it automatically makes you smile when you wear it. I think people who wear yellow tend to be lively and like to take a risk. There are those who don't like yellow because they feel it does not go with everything or they just don't like the color. Some people feel a little yellow goes a long way.

Actually I don't like yellow color that much. For me, people who like yellow color are crooked and cunning. In my view, yellow colored dresses brings me bad luck. The color is a pleasant one, but I don't love it. A light yellow shade is a good selection for painting houses. For some people, it brings positive energy, but for persons like me, it brings strong negative vibrations.

In my community the color yellow is considered to be the color of jealousy and maybe that is why I don't like it so much. It is a happy color but I wouldn't wear too many yellow clothes. When I thought about the color yellow the first thing that came up on my mind was the sunflowers and the sun.
