The Color Pink

The color pink is a combination of the primary color red with white.

A pink color is considered much more calming than red, but the level of calmness depends on the amount of red in the pink tone. Softer pinks are considered calmer, containing more feminine and young energy.

Pink is the color of universal love and of romance. It evokes feelings of tenderness and caring. It is also symbolic of happiness and contentment, as in "tickled pink".

The meaning of the color pink tends towards more gentle emotions than fiery red. It is the color of calm, of acceptance and relaxation. Pink is also the color of self worth.

Pink is associated with the heart chakra (the 4th chakra) and is therefore considered a color of life and of good health. Hence the common phrase "in the pink" meaning healthy.

Pink gemstones like rose quartz can positively affect the heart and circulatory system. Rose quartz is also said to help with fertility, sexual dysfunction and depression.

There are many color variations of pink. All of the following colors are considered shades of pink: salmon, raspberry, fuchsia, flesh, coral, blush, rose, magenta and flush.

The deeper shades of this color have been found to neutralize aggressive behavior. For this reason, some prisons have painted some areas these deeper pink tones.

Pink can have a negative connotation as well. "Pink collar" jobs are considered to be those that are usually only filled by women. They tend to pay less than similarly skilled jobs filled by men.

The phrase "pink slip" is used to mean the form letter you get to notify you that your employment is being terminated.

Pink in the Chakra System:

The color pink is a secondary color (the other color being green) associated with the fourth chakra, which is the heart chakra. Pink represents the loving heart energy.

If you are agitated or annoyed by someone, or if you see very negative behavior exhibited by others, try "pinking" them, by imagining that person (or group of people) surrounded by a pure very pale pink light. It will help them become calmer.

You can also surround yourself with the calming energy of clear, pale pink light. It is a wonderful thing to do if you are feeling rushed or stressed in any way.

Pink Gemstones

Pink gemstones include rose quartz (or pink quartz), pink sapphire, chalcedony, rhodonite, pink tourmaline, pink calcite, rhodochrosite, petalite, pink halite and danburite.

Pink gemstones are wonderful to place in both your home or office environments. A pink gem stone, such as a piece of rose quartz, placed in a room encourages the feelings of love, calmness and peace to reside there. It is a great stone to place on or in your desk at work to encourage co-workers to work together calmly. At home pink quartz or any other pink gemstone is a wonderful addition to just about any room, with the possible exception of a workout room where you want more active energy.

Adding The Color Pink in Your Life

Each color creates its own ambiance and adds its own feeling to the surroundings. Pink is a very soothing and calming color, so keep that in mind when you decide where you may want to add it to your home or office.

Pink is not a high energy color, so may not be the best color for gyms, work out rooms or other places where you want the energy to be very high.

Add Some Pink Your Life:

  • When you want to feel calm
  • When you want to relax
  • When you want to feel content
  • When things seem too hectic

Do Not Add Pink:

  • When you need a boost of energy
  • When you need a pick-me-up.

Wearing Pink

In our Western culture, the color pink is considered a feminine color, so it is a good color for women to wear when they want to appear softer and more feminine.

For men, pink would be a color to wear when you want to stand out, as it is a more unusual color for men.

For both men and women alike, wearing pink means that you are presenting yourself as non-threatening. It presents you as both calm and peaceful.
