Did you know the colours you wear are a powerful tool to influence your mood and the moods of those around you?
Interestingly colours can have dramatically different meanings and effects based on culture and personal experience.
For example, green in Western culture is related to nature, spring, new birth, regeneration, good luck, go, environmental awareness, money, jealousy, greed, Saint Patrick's Day.
In Eastern culture green is associated with eternity, new life, regeneration, family, health, prosperity, peace. Throughout Europe green is connected to nature, fertility, confidence, jealousy, inexperience. In the Middle East green represents, Islam, spirituality, peace, strength, fertility, luck, wealth, prestige.
With personal experience sometimes we avoid certain colours that we've been forced to wear such as a bottle green in a school or pastel blue for a work uniform.
When it comes to choosing colour tune into your own intuition about how certain colours and shades make you feel. Does bright red excite you or drain you? Does navy blue make you feel secure or invisible?
Choose a new colour to wear that reflects the energy you'd like to bring into your life.
Popular colours to try this season are sage green, true green, mustard yellow, bright red, cobalt blue, lavender purple, dusty rose and chocolate.
