Colours have their own general meanings, each and everyone one of us will perceive them differently so although a basic meaning can be given to a colour, it's how the colour makes you feel and what it means to you that will give it`s real meaning. You can get a lot of information about colours just by being outside in nature, for example take the colour green, what do you notice about it? Well one of the first thing I noticed was nearly everything that grows was mostly green or the majority of the colour was green. So what does that say about the colour? Well green is a strong colour to stimulate growth? notice how weeds can grow so quick and how they push through concrete, next time you go for a walk take a look at the pavement and see.
Green is a good colour for healing although should be used with care as it can stimulate growth and this would not be beneficial for any ailment or illness which relies on growth to survive such as cancer. Although healing is beneficial it should be used as complementary only. If you have any health concerns ALWAYS consult a qualified doctor.
As an experiment concentrate on each of the colours below and write down how each colour makes you feel. Lets say for example while looking at the colour blue, you feel calm and relaxed, you can use that colour the next time you feel stressed either by wearing that colour or just visualising that colour.
