Impact of Colors on You and Your Surrounding
The color of the clothes or the color of anything around you, does it have varied impact? It is significant in the sense that the color that you reflect will naturally add to the aura that you carry. Black reflects nothing. It holds back everything, so it becomes black. Those on a path where they do not want to gather anything will wear white. Orange represents the entire process that is about enlightenment and reaching the state of knowing. Red is the most vibrant color and famine represents that.
Let us start with how color happens. An object seems white because when the light falls on it, it reflects all of it. An object is red, not because it is red; it is just that it holds back all the colors and only reflects red. If you dress up in jazzy colors and go on and stand in front of your dog, he interestingly looks at you because he does not see any color. He sees everything in black and white.
So, color is not what it is. Color is what it gives away. What you reflect on will be your color. What you hold will not be your color. This is the nature of life, not just of color. Today, if you radiate love, people will see you as a living human being. If you hold back all your love because you are a love bank, you are full of love, but you do not radiate, you are that. If you radiate joy, people will perceive you as a joyful person but if you hold back then people will not enjoy you as a positive human being.
What you give away is always your quality. This is not just for a human being that is the nature of existence itself. What is thrown away is the quality of that substance. A substance that reflects everything will be white. The sky reflects blue, so it is blue. The rest held back. What it holds back, you do not see. What it gives away is what you see.
So how is color significant for human consciousness as such or for any spiritual process? Anything physical in existence naturally reflects light. What you are seeing is the reflected not, not the color of the substance.
Color is the most powerful, stimulating, and demanding element of design. It is the first thing that people notice and remember the longest. Colors are at once inviting to an individual. It can also distract and disturb. Color evokes highly physical and emotional responses which may be conscious or unconscious.
When you want to send a message to the world, you cannot do that with color. Color can affect the body and psyche. It can create a powerful illusion in your body size and your shape. It can also communicate visual meaning, a message, and moods. You can wear any color you want or need to wear; you just need to know how to wear it and the meaning behind that color.
The perception of color is a very personal experience but something for you to consider. So, if you want to stand out or want to blend in, want to influence, want to show your personality, and your value, you can also mix and match the color. You can use a belt to bring in color and that has psychological and physical effects. Try and read the meanings of all the colors and start to think about the message you want to send to your audience through color and the message you want to send about yourself.
