A balance of violet, offers us great mental power with humility, kindness and fairness. We feel more reverence toward all life. This opens up the opportunity to be more of an idealists, self sacrificing and humane,

Yellow is extremely joyful and empowering, a rejuvenating color of happiness and will power. Balancing violet with yellow, gives us a sense of equilibrium. It creates a feeling of being in touch but yet, with a spiritual repose. This exhilarating boost of a warm color with a cold one, offers a welcomed connection!
