Colours play an important part in our lives. Certain colours resonate within us, bring out an emotion, remind us of a place, a time, a person, a tradition. Colours shape our beliefs, emotions and surroundings every day and something we can connect to with all people around the world. Today, let's explore the pure sophistication of White.
White is a colour that protects and encourages and offers a sense of peace, tranquility and comfort. It represents freshness and freedom and gives a sense of openness like a fresh blank canvas, a piece of white paper ready for words to be expressed and feelings to manifest. White allows the eye to rest, softens distractions and helps refill ones creative well. One cannot hide behind the colour white as it amplifies everything in its' brilliant radiance. The colour white offers calmness and hope. It soothes the soul and helps cleanse with its pure energy. White is an inherently positive colour that is associated with possibility, sincerity, humility, softness, protection yet all the while radiantly brilliant. The colour of new beginnings and new possibilities, white is simplicity, perfection and purity in the ultimate sense.

White in nature is striking, sometimes mysterious and all pervading. Imagine fresh soft white snow, white clouds sailing in the sky, white sea shells calling us back to the ocean, fragrant soft jasmine petals glowing in the moonlight, a white horse galloping against a backdrop of craggy white cliffs, swans drifting on a placid lake, white froth capping the waves, mist hanging in a valley.
I think white is the most wonderful colour of all, because within it one can find every colour of the rainbow - Richard Meier
In the ancient Yogi traditions, the colour white is the colour of the crown chakra that corresponds with the elements of ultimate wisdom, completion and a cosmic connection. In feng shui white is the colour of purity and innocence with energy that is crisp, clear, clean and fresh. White can help contrast brighter colours making it so versatile as it can brighten the energy of any space. Having a fresh, pure white in your sacred space will soothe and spread healing vibrations throughout your home.
White resonates, like a silence that can suddenly be understood - Wassily Kandinsky
