Guess you never really thought about it, except to pull on your colours and keep moving. Well, we will learn that there is much more going on than merely wearing colours and let you know that you have been sending off power vibes to the known. How you interact with your colours also depends on your culture, beliefs and experiences.
We are fascinated by the beautiful array of colours we see daily and sometimes wonder how it came about. In modern times we add much creativity and display some of the most alluring combinations we have ever seen.
The study of colours spanned many fields, including fine arts, painting, optics, physiology, mathematics and visual psychology. It is also categorised into primary, secondary and tertiary colours. In the 17th century, red was considered the lightest and blue the darkest shade. As time evolved, this was found inaccurate, and deeper experiments were done to change this. Hence today, we have an array of beautiful colours to mix and match and benefit from the power they transmit.
Let’s explore the Power of your Colour.

So friends, the colour you wear on a particular day may support your intentions and even allow you some good luck. Another exciting way to approach the colour benefits is to arrange your colours for the week, depending on your schedule and how you are inspired or intend to inspire others.
Bear in mind, however, in some cultures; colours can have both positive and negative meanings as much as the extreme opposite of what you know them to be.
Make the best choice according to the colours you are most drawn to and what you want to communicate and enjoy.
Improvement takes time.
