“All the other colors are just colors, but purple seems to have a soul. When you look at it, it’s looking back at you.”
If you’re anything like the Twigs’ girls, the color purple is an adored & important color to have in your life & environment.
Purple is broadly associated with mystery, creativity, peace & calm, magic, spirituality, protection, dignity, wisdom, ambition, sensitivity, imagination, gracefulness, and nurturing feminine energy, and that’s just a start. It’s no wonder that we hold our purple close to our hearts in times of confusion, stress & sadness.
When it comes to stones & crystals, purple serves just as diverse a crowd and offers its energy from several standpoints. Considering that purple is made from mixing cool blues with fiery reds, it makes sense that this intriguing color can offer us calmness & an influx of positive energy all at once.
Amethyst, for instance, is the ultimate stone of calm and clarity. While amethyst promotes encouragement and protection, it is fundamentally a stone of spiritual solace. Those who suffer from addictions (far & wide) and those who struggle with anxiousness or insomnia are prompted to cling to an amethyst for more than just its relieving abilities – but for its abilities to delve deeper into the root of the problem. What is making me anxious? Why are our minds so active that we can’t shut them off at night? This gorgeous purple stone aids in seeking the answers from within ourselves; exactly where they lie.
*Interesting tidbit* Amethyst, Charoite, & Lepidolite are all purple stones and are all used in conditions relating to sleep, insomnia, and night terrors.
Getting deeper into the spiritual side of purple, it’s pretty important to mention the Third Eye & Crown Chakras. The auric color of these chakras is most commonly represented as purple or indigo. But why? We all know that each chakra has its own auric color association – but the association with these cool colors being connected to the third eye & crown chakras is important. These chakras, more than any other, are related to our spiritual being rather than physical. To unblock & open your third eye & crown chakras is to open yourself up to higher levels of living. Not in having more money, friends, or things, but a genuine understanding of your purpose and a happiness in it. Spiritual solace is draped in purple of varying shades.
Purple is a rare occurrence in nature – take time to stop and admire the wildflowers, smell the lavender which grow up from the dirt because they are few & far between. If there isn’t already, make sure to bring something purple into your home. A crystal, blanket, pictures, book, anything really, that you can connect with and spend a moment being open with yourself. They say that things only have power if we believe in them, and I firmly believe in the power of purple. I keep it with me almost all of the time.
One moment in the Twigs’ homes & you’ll immediately see the importance of purple in our lives. It’s a calm, happy color that we need after living through stressful days. We use it to relax and reconnect after being surrounded by the strong red & orange energies which inherently surround us.
How does purple make you feel? Are you drawn to it? Is it just not your jam? We would love to hear your thoughts on this!
