Renewal

Green is the colour of renewal and rebirth, through its association with nature. Green is the colour of springtime and indicates new life. It allows us to see things from a new perspective and make a fresh start. In this sense, green can also represent a lack of experience or immaturity.

Green can affect our physical and mental wellbeing in a number of ways.

Green is the colour of the heart centre chakra, and it is also associated with peace, and a feeling of safety.

Envy

We've all heard the phrase "green with envy" which is one of the negative traits of the colour green. Another manifestation of this is the term "green-eyed monster" to mean jealousy. The reason for this negative aspect is that green is the colour of money, so it represents greed and selfish desire

Calmness

Because green is the colour of the heart centre, it is a colour used often in meditation to relax and calm the body and mind. Green is also a combination of yellow and blue, so it takes on the attributes of those colours. Blue is renowned for having a calming influence, while yellow represents mental clarity.

Wealth

Green is the colour of prosperity and wealth, and encourages the need to own more materialist possessions. This is because of green's association with money, and the term "greenback" which refers to a US dollar bill.
