Purple apart from its association with Barney (childhood character), belongs to what I call the “POWER HUES” © (you heard it here first). Purple is a blend of red and blue. Purple is commonly associated with royalty, mystery, meditation (think lavender, lilac, purple mountain majesty).
Violet… Similar and often mistaken for purple, it is a mix between red and blue with higher percentages of blue than red . Think cooler (because of blue as opposed to warmer due to red). It is associated with the crown chakra (head).
Touches of purple or violet can:
- help you expand imagination
- eliminate obstacles
- promote calmness
- assert power and royalty
