That’s very much the case with the colour pink, which is one of the most soothing colours in the rainbow. Although it’s widely associated with the feminine – baby girls are commonly dressed in pink – it has immense qualities for everyone. Pink is a very soothing colour, it promotes calm, healing and reminds us about the importance of love.
Pink can be used in spiritual work, as a colour in which you bathe yourself during visualisations or meditations, or you can use pink stones, such as the ever popular rose quartz, in healing work.
If you’re having difficulty loving yourself or recognising the value of self-worth, then holding a pink stone, such as rose quartz, can help promote the qualities of love in your life. A piece of rose quartz placed in the bedroom, or elsewhere in the home, can promote the energies of love to couples, individuals and families.
Pink is often used to adorn the walls of waiting rooms, such as doctor’s surgeries or dentists, in the hope that it will be soothing and ease the nerves of anxious patients. If you want to feel calmer or promote your image as someone who is calm, relaxed and peaceful, then wearing clothing in shades of pink can help project that image. Even if the paler shades of pink aren’t quite to your taste, you can still embrace the essence of pink with darker, more vibrant shades, like fuschia or shocking pink.
A pale pink ribbon has also become the embodiment of the Breast Cancer crusade, with pink ribbons sold and worn by millions of people worldwide to show their solidarity to the cause.
