Color Symbolism

Reading Time: 4 minutes

It has been said time and again that you are what you wear. This statement might have been interpreted as wear clothes that are fashionable or trendy, but in reality, the style doesn’t matter, the colors do…….. in other words, pick the right color to share the right vibe

Color Symbolism refers to the use of color to represent different things. Color symbolism is found in various cultures, religions, and belief systems. There is great diversity in the use of color and their associations between different communities and even within the same culture in different time periods. The same color may have very different associations within the same culture at any time. Variety in color symbolism occurs because color meanings and symbolism can occur on an individual, cultural and/or on a universal level. Color symbolism is also context-dependent and influenced by changes over time. Religious and non-religious concepts or articles may symbolically be represented by specific colors. Color symbolism is a very important tool that aids in holistic healing whether or not you practice chakra.
