Pink is a mix of red and white, but some shades do have a hint of blue. The amount of red present represents the amount of practical energy that red is linked to. Red represents our personal motivation whereas white states that anything is possible.
In the Western world, pink is considered to be worn by a female, yet in many Eastern cultures, red represents the female energy and white represents the male. Pink is a much underestimated color, as it balances polarities such as male and female, Yin and Yang, and expression and reception. A piece of rose quartz in a room can be very effective in harmonizing the energies of the environment. It would need to be cleansed regularly though. Pink clothing, pink crystals in jewelry or bringing pink into your home will also help.
Deep pink, such as magenta, has been known to soothe aggressive behavior if used for short periods of time, i.e. 10 minutes, as longer use can have more of a red influence, causing agitation. Pale pink is linked to our personal attributes, such as self-worth, self-esteem and self-tolerance. It is often easier for people to express love for others rather than themselves, and forgiving others is often easier if we have to forgive ourselves first, and the paler shades of pink can help with this. Self-acceptance becomes easier once we recognize and face the fears we hold about ourselves. Rose quartz is said to be very useful for healing, yet an emotional release may be required in order to be able to deal with any kind of pink healing.
When we imagine ourselves as a single unit, separate from the world, we tend to hold ourselves in a negative light. It is very common for people to undervalue themselves and their skills in today’s society. Visualizing pink can be very beneficial. Visualize pink around yourself to ease difficult situations, or visualize the color pink around others who you may feel threatened by.
For some people, pink represents unconditional love, which, if we’re really honest with ourselves, can be very difficult to express. However, compassion is different, as it allows for human weaknesses. The red and white of the color pink represent compassion, and the strength that is required. It takes a very strong person to be able to not rush in and want to fix everything, and to allow others to find themselves, and to accept what “is”, with all the pain and joy it can bring.
To increase or balance the pink energy in your life you can wear pink clothes, or use pink crystals like rose quartz, rhodonite and rhodocrosite. Essential oils such as rose and rose geranium, and pink flower essences like flowering current, geranium and red Campion will also help.
