Power success, persistence and confidence is associated with the color scarlet. It is a brighter orange tone variation of the color red.

As I mentioned in my last blog on the color red we are all solid and yet we are all frequency.
How can this be? Each solid is composed of vibrating atoms giving the composite its own special vibration. When I did research into the structure of molecules I used a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectrometer (NMR). NMRs can detect the resonating frequencies of matter. Using these instruments, I could tell from the specific frequencies which atoms were present, what their neighbors were and eventually what their structure was.
From the microscopic point of view matter has characteristic frequencies that add up to a special frequency for the whole organ or body.
Color therapy is based on the frequencies of the various colors.
Colors affect our mood on a deeper level hence we intuitively are drawn to certain colors on different days. I love the color cards The secret Language of Color Cards by Inna Segal covering some of the emotional and spiritual effects of the various colors together with great visuals of the colors. It is fun to pick a card and do the associated meditation.
A strong case of matching your clothes to your intention is demonstrated by the history of scarlet.
According to Wikipedia “Surveys in Europe and the United States, scarlet and other bright shades of red are the colors most associated with courage, force, passion, heat, and joy. In the Roman Catholic Church, scarlet is the color worn by a cardinal.”
Scarlet is associated with attracting opportunities and success in whatever it is you focus on. It has been a color of power, wealth and luxury from ancient times. During the time of the Roman Empire it was exported from Persia for the scarlet cloaks of the Roman officers. In the Middle Ages the finest scarlet for Kings and and the wealthy was made from kermes a scale found on trees. In the 16th century another variety of scale from Mexico made even more brilliant and cheaper scarlet making the color more widely available.
Scarlet was the traditional color of the British nobility in the 17th and 18th century while in Chinese culture red is the color of happiness.
So, when you go to your closet you may want to think of what support your goals need for the day – do you need to have more courage and internal power for your upcoming day or project? Do you want to feel like a King? Try scarlet and see how your subconscious is affected by the frequency.
You may also want to try some scarlet fruit like strawberries. About eight strawberries contain more vitamin C than an Orange – so that will definitely give you an added boost. They’ve also been shown to help lower your bad (LDL) cholesterol.
Or Meditate with the color scarlet focusing on clarity of purpose and enthusiasm for your project.
