Colours and how they affect us

Colour is involved in everything you do, touch, see, eat and drink. The vibration of each colour influences us and they have each their own vibration frequency. Each part of our body also has its own frequency; these signals interact all the time. When we feel full of life and our energy fields are high, we are balanced and automatically like most colours. But when our energy field is low and we are feeling tired, lonely, neglected, or depressed, then we are drawn to particular colours that we need to give us comfort, energy, rest, love and healing.

Colour has its own silent way of communicating but it has a very strong affect on all our emotions and physical well-being. Next time you are drawn to a particular colour ask yourself why. Look at the way you use colour and see if you need to enhance or make changes to bring into your life what you need.

White

White represents purity and innocence; too much of this colour tends to be very bland on its own. It is also connected with the younger generation and the freshness of youth. Whites have a positive well-balanced personality; they like to be free from too much pressure due to the outside world. They are frequently are on the move, coming up with new ideas that they are then ready to put into action.

The negative side to white is loneliness and the need to be recognized. They need to be more open-minded and communicate how they really feel. If you wear too much white or have too much in your surroundings it will be difficult to have a clear opinion, as you will keep changing your mind because there will be too many possibilities.

White in a room creates space but also inactivity; it slows the energy down and gives you a false feeling of complacency. Involve other shades like off-white or white with a hint of another colour. Related foods are garlic, potatoes, cauliflower and rice.
