Pink is proven to have a calming effect - researchers of color psychology have found that this effect only occurs during the initial exposure to the color. Pink symbolizes love, beauty, kindness, compassion and emotional love of self and others. Brings you in contact with your feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance. Heals grief and sadness. Smoothes difficulties in both romantic and family relationships and assists with self-esteem and self-love. Pink is a combination of red and white. The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink combines these energies. Wear pink when you are around people you care about and that care about you, or if you want to smooth over or encourage the one to one relationship, whether it be friendship or romantic love. Pink suggests softness, sweetness, innocence, youthfulness, tenderness, romance, nurturing, friendship, femininity, soft and kind people. A pink carnation means "I will never forget you.” Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming.
