Colour meditations are good for addressing specific problems, so devote plenty of preparation. Choose a quiet corner of your home and before starting to meditate, assemble many different objects of the colour you wish to focus on.
There is plenty of research into the way colours affect people and their moods. Green can communicate closeness of nature. Blue tends to signify infinite expansion, such as seen in the sky or sea/ocean. Red means heat and vibrancy.
If you have a fixation on one colour, it means your perceptions are limited. As a result of this, you may find that you are rushing from one shop to another looking for an item of clothing in that particular colour! Expanding your appreciation of colour also expands the mind.
