The power of colour is timeless, linked to light and the cycle of the day. It arouses sensations deep within us and from those sensations we derive meaning. We use colour to define who we are and our place in the world. This unspoken language posesses a unique energy, it unites us, challenges us and inspires us.
Sensuous, spiritual and emotional, colour makes our world a place of beauty and will continue to do so as long as the planet plays host to the miraculous array of inquisitive, creative and surprising individuals and creatures that call it home.
Everyone has a favourite colour. We use colours to describe our health, emotions and attitudes. The perception of colour is included in our vocabulary;
"He was green with envy"
"She has the blues today"
"Here's a golden opportunity"
"We received a phonecall out of the blue"
"He was so angry he saw red"
"She was tickled pink with her gift"
"It was only a white lie"
"He passed the exam with flying colours"
We usually like certain colours more than others. This has to do with their vibration, and weather or not it resonates with us. Each colour has a vibration, and it has been known that some blind people can actually feel the vibration of colours and correctly name them.
It is the vibration of colours or light waves that is used in the practice of Colour Therapy.
