In “The First Element,” written by my mentor, Dr. Tae Yun Kim, an incredibly astute teacher, lecturer, and author who broke 3000 years of male-dominated Korean martial arts history to become the first female Tae Kwon Do Grandmaster, and then went on to found the Silicon Valley high tech company, Lighthouse worldwide solutions – Dr. Kim writes about the energy, vibration, and impact of different colors.
“Yellow is a very favorable vibration for mental or intellectual activity, as it promotes a clear state of mind. That’s why it is very helpful for heightening your awareness and alleviating depression, sadness, or any kind of despondency. Our sunlight is essentially yellow. Consider how beneficial sunlight feels when you need clarity or need to cheer up. The yellow vibration, whether in the form of pure light or yellow food, supports good digestion and elimination…”
Yellow has always been my favorite color, but before reading Dr. Kim’s “The First Element,” I never thought about why I liked yellow over other colors. And I had never consciously realized that I really feel different, sunnier, brighter, when I see or wear yellow.
Since reading “The First Element”, I’ve noticed that when I see or wear yellow, my attitude is automatically sunnier. Around yellow or in bright sunlight, I feel happy for no particular reason. Especially now during winter, when the sky outside tends to be grey and overcast, having a little pick me up in the form of ‘yellow’ is awesome.
