Yellow is associated with our power center, the Solar Plexus, which is the biggest nerve center outside of the brain. It is from here that we move forward.

Yellow is one of the best colors to strengthen the immune system, improving alertness and concentration.
Yellow in Healing
Yellow energy corresponds to the biggest nerve plexus in the body, the solar plexus. Through the solar plexus, all the digestive organs (such as the stomach, liver, spleen, gall bladder and pancreas) are affected. It gives power for better digestion, helps with constipation and flatulence and intestinal issues. Try bromelain (pineapple) for better digestion. Yellow energy may help cleanse the pores of the skin and treat disorders of the eyes and throat. Consider chamomile tea bags over the eyes and tea to soothe sore throat. Those who suffer from seasonal disorders, benefit greatly from taking sun or using a sun lamp.
The Nature of Yellow
Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the light spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other. Autumn leaves, yellow flowers, lemons, bananas and other yellow fruit all contain carotenoids. These yellow and red organic pigments are found in plants and some other photosynthetic organisms. Yellow is the most visible color and is particularly attractive to birds and insects. It is the color of straw and the rich fields of waving wheat, all kissed by a yellow sun.
In almost every culture, yellow represents sunshine, happiness, joy and warmth. Yellow is the color most often associated with the deities in many religions. This golden light and association to the sun, often makes people think of yellow as a spiritual color. Yellow means courage and nobility in Japan. Buddhist monks wear saffron yellow robes and in many Middle Eastern countries, yellow represents golden prosperity. To Native Americans, yellow is the symbol for unconditional love. The golden yellow halo is what is often portrayed over the heads of angels and saints.
The Tao of Yellow
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement to enhance the flow of “vital life energy” or Qi. Practitioners believe that environments can be arranged and decorated in a way that maximizes the flow of Qi, resulting in improvements to health and happiness of those who live in that environment. Yellow is associated with earth energy, representing Mother Earth. It can bring cheer, infuse us with hope, and clarify and elevate our mental activity. It also creates a sense of stability and nurturing. Yellow is often used to help children with dyslexia improve their focus. Use yellow as an accent in the southeast (prosperity) section of your home or by itself in the center (health) area.
The Taste of Yellow
Food is an important and nourishing way to introduce color in our healing process.Yellow foods generate power. These are foods rich in immune stimulating properties and vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, B complex, E, sodium, potassium, selenium and chromium. Many grains fall into this category. When we lack yellow energy in our diets it can lead to poor memory, lack of concentration, tension, irritability, digestive problems and a lack of proper absorption of nutrients. Include these yellow foods into your diet: lemons, bananas, grapefruits, corn, pineapples, rye, wheat, eggs, fish, fish oils and foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
Stimulating communication, yellow is a friendly color promoting cheerfulness, hope, creating enthusiasm, and increasing the heart beat. Yellow opens us up freely to better conversation. For most people, yellow is a happy color. Wearing It, generally energizes us, helps us relieve depression, improves memory and stimulates the appetite. It makes us feel good. Yellow energy is good for children in that it enhances their ability to perceive and understand. Too much yellow might be perceived as annoying. While a soft, pale, and toned-down yellow would likely create a warming, happy approachable feel.
Power Over Us?

A lack of yellow could result in becoming rigid, cunning, possessive, defensive, and emotionally aloof. Empowerment is the gift of yellow. It stimulates our ability to find self-worth, self-esteem and self-sufficiency. Our diaphragm is our power center. We take in courage with a breath, we process food into life-giving energy and it is here that we must learn to trust our “gut” or instinct, then “see” with our Third Eye or intuition.
The Balance of Yellow

Other traits are perfectionist thinking, workaholic behavior, the inability to relax and mentally bullying ourselves.
