  • As we look around us, everything we perceive reflects colour. Colour is everywhere, and affects our daily lives and emotions constantly. Just as we are made up of a series of energy fields, so too is colour. Colour and light are energy, and we are constantly being shifting and changing in response to our environment and all the colours around it
  • Throughout history colour has always played an important role and regarded as highly symbolic. Today psychologists and scientists are even acknowledging the profound use of colour for therapeutic purposes. Colour has power and every specific colour produces the same stimulus in every single person.
  • You will have varying shades and hues of the 7 major colours in our dreams, but there is a general rule; the more clear that colour is, the more accurate the description will be, and the muddier that colour, the more blocked that area will be for you.
