Spirit Trap

Many people like to decorate the walls of their homes with pictures or just photos, but who thought what pictures bring into our lives, what influence do they have on us? But the shade of each image in its effect on the person. Each picture carries with it a certain energy, one can easily catch a certain mood and such a “state” of the image. A picture or photo radiates a common energy, which in turn affects our subconscious. This naturally entails a change in our reactions and actions.

The total energy consists of the color gamut of the painting, the painting itself, as well as the energy invested by the artist in the painting. Much depends on the color scheme of the picture. After all, as you know, a person very sharply reacts to different colors. Here it is necessary to imagine the connection between the basic colors and the emotional state of a person.

Red – a very strong effect on the person. Everyone associates this color with something personal. This is a unique color that can both warm and annoy. In nervous people, red causes aggression, in some cases leads to depression.
Orange – fiery, hot, color, it creates a feeling of joy and warmth, excites, improves mood, but can also cause irritation.
Yellow is the color of the sun. It has a calming effect, it is also used in psychotherapy. It creates a feeling of lightness, improves mood, trains eyesight, stimulates the brain.
Green is the color of nature. Able to cause a feeling of freshness and moisture, is also an analgesic, hypnotizing color.
Blue is the color of water. Gives a feeling of soothing coolness. However, not all shades of blue can have a beneficial effect on the emotional state of a person.

Dark tones depress, crush, usually they are not recommended to use. Accordingly, if a certain color prevails in a picture more, it has a greater impact on the person. Therefore, it is better to choose pictures of light shades or already deep semantic ones, so that watching such an image immediately becomes easy and free. Scientists and psychologists have long proved that the paintings are able to elevate mood, calm and even heal. In kindergartens and elementary schools, children are asked to draw something just in this way and thus observe the psychological state of the child.

Just imagine that in one of your rooms there is a painting, which depicts a calm sea. Submitted? Complete calm and seagulls above him in free flight are independent, light.

Light blue shades bring peace of mind, satisfaction. In contrast to this, imagine a picture showing a storm. Gray and dark blue shades cause only anxiety and excitement. Sometimes we like a picture made in dark colors, but even so it is impossible to look at it for a long time. Therefore, you must be very careful when choosing a painting that you would later look at every day with pleasure. All this also applies to the paintings, which depict yourself, but in an unusual way for you (this is a photomontage).

If the subject is chosen successfully, then you will be filled with happiness when you look at yourself. This is very convenient if a person wants to change something in his life. Imagine when an unsure person is suddenly presented with a picture where he is depicted in the image of a king. Every morning he passes by this picture, casually glancing at her. Internally, this person adjusts to victory, the mood for the best is postponed in the subconscious, and therefore, over time, the person becomes more confident in his actions. Deep in his soul, he realizes that nothing prevents him from being the first.

It is also important who paints a picture or processes it and, most importantly, with what mood. After all, it may be the case that the image is made in light tender colors, but with negative emotions, then it will not bring anything good to its owner. And what pictures hang in your house? Look for artists of good spiritual condition and purity of life.
